Natural remedies for varicose veins using tomatoes.

Tomatoes has healing properties because of an aspirin-like substance found in the fruit. This acid is considered to be an anticoagulant and a natural blood thinner. In addition, tomatoes has flavonoids that strengthen the blood vessel walls.

There are two great natural remedies for varicose veins using green and red ripe tomatoes.

Green Tomatoes:

The procedure for green tomatoes is a very simple home remedy to get rid of varicose veins.
1. Wash a few green tomatoes and cut them into circle slices (or rings).
2. Place the slices of the green tomatoes on the nodes of the varicose veins and vein capillary network.
3. If you can not lay down for a bit, fixate them with some bandage. Keep the tomato slices on until you feel a tingling sensation on the skin. If you can stand the feeling remove the slices and wash the veins with cold water.

I recommend trying to tough it out as long as you can. The results will be visible very soon, depending on your body.

For better results, repeats the procedure 5 times a day, continuously.

Two week after you start this procedure, the venous nodes will start to fade. The swelling capillary network pain and nodes in the veins will eventually disappear.

Red Tomatoes:

The procedure is almost the same as the green tomatoes.

1. Wash a few ripe red tomatoes, cut them into super thin slices and put them on the painful veins for 3-4 hours. Use some bandages to fixate them properly.
2. Wait 5 mins then replace with a few new ones.

The best time to do this procedure is during the evening or at night.

The duration of the treatment is individual. You can also do this home treatment combining with green tomatoes.

I have tried this treatment on two of my uncles. It has greatly reduced the veins. Understand we also began a daily 30 minute walk routine and change of diet.

The procedure at a doctors office can cost you from $180 up to $1500. Try this for a few weeks and share your story below.

I am such a fashionista girly girl. I normally wear false eyelashes on most days and my L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara on my chill days.

I don't always have time to apply my false lashes, but I wanted to maintain that glamorous look false lashes gave me. I tried some DIY home remedies ( baby powder, castor oil) to make my lashes look fuller until I came across the L'Oreal Voluminous Lash Primer at Target.


On clean lashes I applied a few coats of primer,  just like I would my mascara. I let sit for about 30 seconds then apply my mascara.

You will notice a much smoother fuller look without clumps by adding the primer. 

I recommend this primer and gave it five stars. Stay in the same brand family for best results. 

Remember you can pile on the primer and do light coats of the mascara. I am heavy handed and tend to over do my mascara so this is perfect for me.

My top 5 top things you should never do around your man.

1. Curse. Cursing is for sailors, Pirates and boys. You're not being cute or sexy so cut it out.

2. Talking negative about someone or a situation. He wouldn't feel fell good being around you. Alway take the high road.

3. Doing your hair. Men aren't very fond in seeing the process but rather the product. Try to set aside some alone time at a salon or at home when he is away from the house. When your beau sees you again, he will see a fabulous up kept new you. 

4. Pass gas or burp. I don't care if you've been together for 3 months, 3 years or 3 decades. It's just gross! Just because he may burp or fart, does not give you the pass to forget your own manners. A man wants a lady not a pig. You're not his buddy, you're his lady. Don't get to comfortable.

5. Showing off. Men are natural born care givers. ( I am talking about men, not boys) It's very unattractive for you to brag. He sees you and your accomplishments. Stay humble, There is big difference in discussing your achievements and bragging.

This is about you and how you should carry yourself. You are not a man. You're not your man. Just because he does something doesn't mean you have to match that or loose your manners because of being to comfortable and time together. 

Do you agree? What are your thoughts? Comment below and share.

The top 5 nail polish you should own and always have on hand in between manicures.

I have done the research by doing my own manicures to save money. I chose 5 of the most popular nail polish brands on the market. I painted each nail with a different one, keeping the top and base coats the same for consistency. Side note: Using a top and base coat is very important for long jevity and a more well groomed look.

Here's how each of the polishes measured up.

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Nail Polish
$7.99 - $8.99
Available at www.drugstore.com
The shine is so impressive you may feel like you don't need a top coat. I went 18 days without chipping.

$9.99 - $16
Available at www.ulta.com
This has been my go to polish in any salon. ole faithful. The colors just pop and so unique. I went 16 without chipping.

$6.50 - $8.50
Available at www.essie.com
This was the first in the bunch to chip. The colors are very light. I had to apply 4 to 5 coats just to notice the color. I went 4 days without chipping. Not ideal for everyday, more of an event polish to me.

$26 - $28
Available at www.chanel.com
Chanel has a bit of a reputation so I thought I'll give it a try. Oh boy the shine was fantastic but by the end of day 3 I had spot bubbles. I went 5 days without chipping. Not worth the money.

Butter London
$9 - $15
Available at www.butterlondon.com
The colors are nice and thick like OPI. Normal shine. I went 7 days without chipping. Perfect for those fashionistas who change their nail color often.

The Winner:
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Nail Polish was the true champion here, having survived my dish washing, workouts and everyday wear and tear. Don't always assume that the most expensive nail polish has the most staying power and always apply a thin layer of top and base coat.

Be sure to keep my results in mind for your next at home mani-pedi session. Comment below and tell me your favorite polish and  share any secret you have to keep our polish lasting longer.

Do you wear makeup to the gym? I do.

I know some people may think make up is not a place for the gym. For me I don't want strangers to see my dark circles and spots. They don't deserve to see me in that state and I don't feel confident. I don't feel like the fabulous me.

I am not saying wear your event makeup, but a little concealer and penciled in eyebrows won't hurt. You can argue that, thats your down time or maybe even say your pores are at its weakest. I say wash your face after the gym with a light scrub and you should be just fine.

I believe a women should be at her best no matter the place. If you don't wear or need makeup then great!

I recommend a tented moisturizer with a light shimmer. Pretend you are your favorite singer on stage and notice the difference in your workout.

Will you try this? How do you feel about women wearing makeup to the gym? Do you wear makeup to the gym?

Comment below, I would love to hear your thoughts.
