Nectarines are July’s fruit of the month. I’m not sure why, but I’ve seen this statement on a lot of websites this month, so we’ll jump on the bandwagon. Not to be confused with peaches, nectarines have a smooth skin and are lot sweeter in flavor. They contain plenty of good-for-you antioxidants such as bioflavonoids, to help fight off diseases. They are also rich in vitamin C and are a great source of fiber. The sweet aroma is sure to awaken your senses, so try using this nectarine inspired products before starting your day.

Ever wondered what it would be like to wake up like a Kardashian? Well, wonder no more, because starting this April you will be able to twist and turn underneath the velvety soft sheets of the Kardashian’s new home collection, available exclusively at Sears. In addition to bedding, the collection also includes a home décor and bath line, with all the trimmings you would expect from the three sisters famous for their bling and fervent love of leopard print.
I’ll admit to being somewhat leery and skeptical when arriving to the event to preview the Kardashian Kollection Summer/Fall 2012 & Home Collection, held at The Setai hotel in the heart of Midtown Manhattan. As I walked through the doors I was expecting to see their faces imprinted on a comforter, or flashy “KK” logos plastered on every item asserting their reign. But, surprisingly this wasn’t the case, as I shockingly peered over high-quality, elegant and chic designs. In fact, the brazen KK logo I was expecting to see was unobtrusive, and virtually nowhere to be found unless you picked up an item and squinted at the attached tag. For some reason, this makes me take the line more seriously that I did before arriving at The Setai. It’s easy to brand something with a logo and hope people will but it because of who you are, but when you allow the piece to speak for itself, there is an authenticity to the product that shows that this collection is more than just a name, it’s a lifestyle, and I like it.

My name is Delialicious, and I’m a chocoholic. I’m not ashamed to admit it. I consume so much chocolate, that I have considered joining a chocolate addicts support group (such groups do exist; I’ve Googled it), but if loving chocolate is wrong, then I don’t want to be right. Heck, I’m eating chocolate right now as I write this blog post. There are many people out there who proudly admit their chocoholism, and on the flip side, there are many people I know who claim that they never touch the stuff. I call them “closet chocoholics.” My sister, for example, claims she doesn’t eat chocolate, but whenever it’s in the house, it mysteriously goes missing and evidence of the candy’s wrappers reside in her purse (and around the circumference of her mouth). Not many people can resist the delectable aroma of velvety, smooth, melt-in-your mouth chocolate. Admit it; you’re taste buds are being tantalized right now. If you are on a diet or watching your sugar intake, don’t fret because you can still indulge…in chocolate beauty products. Check them out below, but please note, although it may be tempting, none of the products show below are for consumption.
