“Claiming that someone else’s marriage is against your religion is like being angry at someone for eating a cupcake because you’re on a diet.”

sundaeservice asked: For the Jillian Michaels flush out recipe, do you only drink that for 7 days or do you use it on top of what else you eat and drink?

Definitely do not 86 eating! Drink the mix on top of whatever you eat. And I suggest eating, with the exception of your three major meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner), multiple mini meals throughout the day. Also, you want to eat your last snack three ours before your bed time and feed yourself as soon as you wake up! Hope this helps! PS. You want to stay away from foods high in sodium as sodium will make you retain water.

Be grateful.

Be grateful.

Clever closet organization!

A cheaper and more fun way to dye your eggs this Easter! Things you will need: 

• 2/3 cup water
• kool-aid packets 
• plastic spoons
• a cup Mix the color packet of your choice in the water. 

Carefully drop in your egg and let sit until desired darkness. The longer it sits, the darker your egg should be.

It truly works!
