Exercise your way to perfect skin

We all know that regular exercise can help keep our bodies in top condition, as well as helping to keep us fitting into our favourite party dress, but few are aware that regular gym sessions are essential to top beauty skin care tips. Here are a few ways that your skin will benefit from a work out:

Achieve a healthy glow

Exercising increases your blood circulation [1], helping to bring oxygen and other essential nutrients to your skins surface quicker than usual. This leaves skin looking healthy and glowing whilst leaving you with a post-workout complexion to be proud of.

Banish wrinkles and fine lines

Whilst regular excising helps to keep your body in great shape and often helps you to feel younger and healthier, it can also help skin look and feel more youthful too.

Exercising helps to build up collagen tissue [2], which is vital to keep our skin looking smooth as well as maintaining the skins natural elasticity.  Wrinkles and fine lines are caused when the body loses collagen, therefore exercising on a regular basis can help to keep skin looking more youthful.

Clear your skin

Whilst it may be the least favourite bit about exercising for some, sweating your way through a work out is a great way to clear your skin. Sweating helps to unclog the skins pores, removing any traces of bacteria that could lead to a breakout [3]. Be sure to have a shower straight after your work out, otherwise the sweat will evaporate and leave salt on your skin which will clog your pores up again. It is also important to avoid wearing make-up whilst exercising as this too can clog your pores up when you break into a sweat.

Earrings for Every Style

            How many times has JLo been spotted wearing her signature hoop earrings?  With all the rocks she’s got, she’s been seen wearing her hoops when lounging at the pool and at movie premieres, making it work for her every style.   
            Diamond studs and hoop earrings should be two essentials in any women’s jewelry repertoire.  However, these days there are countless types of hoops and studs.  Whether you are in the market for a pair for yourself or are gifting them, here are the top 4 styles of earrings to choose from.   
            The most popular style of earrings bought worldwide are diamond studs.  Classic diamond studs are the perfect addition to any wardrobe or occasion, whether you are pairing them with jeans for a date night or when donning them for an evening bash.  For the no frills gal, who likes clean lines and simplicity, these are just right.  They are understated enough so that they can be paired with other jewelry without appearing gaudy.   Studs are the perfect gift to illuminate any face and brighten anyone’s day.  The Classic Four Prong Diamond Set, for example, will never go out of style and will complement anyone.  
            The same applies for classic hoop earrings.  A clean style, like the Prong Set Diamond Lined Hoops, make a dazzling, well-appreciated gift.
            For those who want to feel like they are walking the red carpet, Designer Diamond Studs are your pick.  If classic is too modest, then designer studs offer you a more ornate and eclectic taste.  A flawless example is the Millgrain Princess Cut Diamond Stud Earrings.  These studs are so rich and glamorous that they will give any diamond ring a run for its money. 

            For style and sophistication look no further than hoop earrings.  If studs are the epitome of elegance, then hoops are the epitome of trendiness.  They add a certain sass and sexiness to any outfit.  Hoops take you from drab to fab when shooting for a casual look or for a girl’s night out.  When buying a gift, look for earrings that will flatter and showcase the recipient’s personality.  Large diamond hoop earrings make a bold statement, while small ones look more polished. 
            If you appreciate antiques or heirlooms, then vintage is your destination.  Vintage lends an old Hollywood charm to any earrings.  Try out the Wavy Double Drop Diamond Earrings for a fanciful feel.
              Whether you like to keep up with the latest fashion trends or just dance to the beat of your own drum,  Anjolee will find the style that is just right for you.

Cellulite Solution

Are your jeans feeling uncomfortably tight after the Thanksgiving feast? Would you do pretty much anything to get rid of your cellulite? Unfortunately, when women pile on the pounds, it tends to sit stubbornly on our hips, bottom and thighs.  But the good news is that there is something you can do about those unwanted cellulite. You don’t need to eat exotic foods or even invest in a gym membership to see results. To get rid of cellulite you just need to strengthen and hydrate your body's cells and the connective tissue in your body. Cellulite may not disappear altogether, but it should diminish if you follow some of these steps.

Some simple lifestyle changes that can help get rid of Cellulite

  • Avoid toxins like excessive alcohol and cigarettes, which put a burden on your body's lymphatic system. This is one of the most important things you can do for your overall health, AND it helps get rid of cellulite.
  • Improve your eating habits. This means eating lots of leafy greens and fruit. Organic food is better because it contains fewer toxins like pesticides.
  • Avoid junk food, diet soda, processed foods, artificial colors and flavors, and saturated fats such as butter and animal fats. Limit sugar and salt, which aggravate fluid retention.
  • Drink a lot of water to hydrate your body and flush out toxins. Eight to ten glasses a day are recommended.
  • Maintain your healthiest weight. Yo-yo dieting can aggravate cellulite.
One of the main question remains: will creams help get rid of Cellulite?

Most anti-cellulite creams have caffeine, which dehydrates the skin. This tightens and firms the skin for a temporary improvement in appearance. So it's not actually getting rid of the cellulite, just changing the way your skin looks, which can be a plus during bathing suit season. Cellulite-fighting creams can be expensive, and there have been many disappointed consumers. But if you want to give it a try why not check out Guam Beauty Mud.  They offer a variety of treatments, creams, and scrubs to help reduce the appearance of cellulite and firm the skin using all natural products.

Right now Guam Beauty Mud is shipping for free until December 23rd and for readers of Just Tututiny get an additional 15% off by using code “justtututiny” at checkout.

Let me know if any of you ladies have tried their products before and have gotten good results. I can’t wait until post pregnancy to give them a try!

Gift Ideas To Surprise Your Mum

If there’s one member of the family who works tirelessly to keep us healthy and happy, then it has to be Mum. Too often mums are the unsung heroes of the family, packing our lunches, driving us to football training and patching up our bloodied knees. Decades might have passed since she made your school sandwiches, but chances are you still rely on her more than you realize. If your mum is one of the unsung heroes of your family, why not get her a gift that lets her know just how much you appreciate her?

1. A getaway:
If your mum is looking a little run down, perhaps it’s time you whisked her off her feet for a surprise getaway. This could be for her and your dad, a group of friends, or even for just the pair of you.
It doesn’t need to be overseas, though you would be mad not to take advantage of the countless cheap getaways to places like the south of France. Somewhere as simple and elegant as a B&B in Cornwall for the weekend is the perfect way to show mum just how much you care.
2. Dinner and a show:
Why not use your mum’s birthday or Christmas as an excuse to surprise her with tickets to dinner and a show? There is such a fantastic range of performances on in most major cities, with cheap package deals that offer combined dinner and theatre packages.
From comedy to Shakespeare, tragedy to musicals, there is no shortage of variety to suit every mum’s personal preference.
3. Pyjamas:
If there’s one thing that most mums need, it’s a chance to sit back and relax a little. Why not encourage your mum to do just this by purchasing her a new set of beautiful pyjamas from
There’s a great range to suit your mum’s personal style, from slinky matching satin pyjama tops and bottoms to a warm and cozy flannel set. With the weather cooling down so much, a new set of pyjamas and a matching robe or slippers is just the sort of gift to encourage mum to put her feet up and watch some TV.
4. Taking a course: Why not encourage your mum to learn a new skill that she’s always shown an interest in. It might be learning French, taking a pastry cooking course or joining a classical music appreciation class. Whatever her interests, be sure to find out in secret and sign her up for a fun new learning experience.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Braids for the Holidays

This Holiday season I am loving everything with braids, pleats or plaits in them especially when it comes to hairdos! Below are some of the hottest braid trends to pair with your sparkly holiday outfits!
:: Ombre side-swept braids ::
I love the ombre tone in this braided style, it gives off such an easy and chic look and would be perfect for an office holiday party!   
:: Crowned braids ::
This crowned braid style recently exploded as the new "trend braid" of the season with or without the bangs. It gives off a princess-y almost romantic feel to it and can be worn outside on the ice skating rink or indoors at an elegant Christmas party!   
:: Structured swept-up braids::
Another ombre look but with a more structured up-do. I love this European Heidi-inspired braid that you can style into an updo or wear with your hair down, the possibilities are just endless.
:: Variation of a mussed-up fishtail ::
The fishtail braid continues to be a popular trend this year. I absolutely adore this sea-inspired style especially with these multiple braids variation.

Which one is your favorite?

Eyeglass Aficionada :: Review

I've worn glasses since I was in high school and have always been a fan of them. These days you will usually see me in contacts as they are just more manageable, especially around kids but now and then I love putting on a trendy pair of frame that can really transform your face. 
Top 3 reasons I would buy from
  1. is the leading online retailer to buy discount prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses. Many top brands include Coach, Jones New York, Guess and Reece Jakob, etc.
  2. Finding a great pair of eyeglasses should not break the bank. That's where comes in handy. They not only have stylish and high quality glasses frames and lenses, they also offer the lowest price guarantee and a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
  3. Single vision, bi-focals, prescription glasses or reading glasses, you name it and has it.
One of my favorite things about is the Virtual Mirror feature. It is user friendly and allows you to upload a photo of yourself and try on all the different glasses to see how you look before you buy. You can even send the photos to your friends to have them help you decide on the perfect pair! Try it out today!

Polka Dot Pants

 Sunnies :: Arden B (buy similar)
Top :: GAP (buy similar)
Pants :: H&M (buy similar)
Wedges :: Aldo (buy similar)
Bag :: Foley and Corinna Jet Set in Tan (buy here)
Polka dots have been a classic yet girly look for ages and we are seeing this famous pattern once again. This trend can be a bit intimidating at first but it's not complicated. Whether in jean or trouser form, polka dots give off a dainty, feminine feel. Try pairing them with solid blazers for work or with neutral peplum tops for a night out. Keep in mind, the more subtle the spots, the easier this look is to pull off. In trying to prove that anyone can pull off this look, I made sure that this one was tailored (but not tight) and paired with items that would help tone it down (in this case a neutral modern vest and tan bag).
What do you think about polka dot pants?

Weekend Cravings

what's hot
Just a few things on my radar this weekend that I could absolutely make room in my closet for ... ;) I could easily justify any one of these items as a solid investment buy... and that's a major problem. In fact, I already placed an order for those Ziah frill booties by Betsey Johnson (buy here)  and can’t wait to try them on!

Fall Foliage :: Leopards and Camel

Sunnies :: Juicy Couture (buy similar)
Blouse :: H&M (buy similar)
Top :: GAP (buy similar)
Leggings :: Guess (buy similar)
Wedges :: Aldo Calcagni (buy similar)
Bag :: Givenchy Nightingale (buy here)
Just when we thought we had seen enough of the leopard print trend….it is still hanging on strong.  However, this time it is done in a different way. In season’s past, leopard prints have been shown mixed with other prints, styled in a feminine way. This season, they are used in a minimal approach keeping inline with Fall’s paired down dressing. This time around, pair with Fall’s  key color palette: camel, olive green, grey, navy and black. Leopard prints feel right at home with camel and I especially love it paired with my Givenchy nightingale! Give it a try today and see how you like it. The key to this look is that it MUST be combined with neutrals, rather than mixing prints.
Thanks for reading!
