Today makes 6 years since the sad news of your death was told to me as I tried to find you in our home in Chetumal, Q. Roo, Mexico. T he policeman who delivered that very shocking news did not know who I was and so he spoke without thinking of the effect his words would have on me.
Not a day has gone be without tears and memories of our time together.
I am grateful that you came into my life and taught me so much about love and living. You also taught me how to write a blog and many were the nights we sat across from each other in out home in Mexico and Corozal while we wrote articles in our respective blogs. The world was a better place as I shared so many things with you and now I go through each day knowing that your lessons are not lost in time but ever present in my heart and my life.
REST IN PEACE MY TEACHER, MY FRIEND, MY HUSBAND.
I LOVE YOU MORE THAN YESTERDAY AND LESS THAN TOMORROW.
NI LA MUERTE NOS SEPARE!

If you're looking for a new pair of jeans but aren't happy with your figure, go with a darker color. Dark blue, indigo, or black jeans are slimming, as are angled back pockets. Don't buy jeans with no pockets at all!

If you suffer from chapped lips, make sure to apply lip balm before you go to bed every night, whether or not you feel like you need it. During the day, use a moisturizing lipstick.

To counteract the rough treatment your hands get every day, scrub them with a facial exfoliater once a week.

If you're prone to backaches, especially in the morning, try sleeping on your back with your knees raised on a pillow. If this is uncomfortable, sleep on your side with a pillow between your knees.

For small, fine flyaways, don't layer on even more hairspray. Take a baby toothbrush, spray it with hairspray, and brush the flyaway hair gently into place.

If you have a good body scrub you use at home, scrub towards your heart when you use it. Start at your feet and work up to your torso. When doing your arms, start at the fingertips and work up to your shoulders. Massage gently in circular motions to avoid scrubbing too hard.

The tough skin on your feet benefits from the heavy moisturizing properties of lanolin. Whether you apply it during the day or under socks before you go to sleep, you'll notice softer skin on your feet in no time!

A lot of pregnant women worry about getting their hair colored, but medical experts agree it's safe after the first trimester. Use highlights rather than full color, though, as it's best to keep as few chemicals from touching your skin as possible.

If you have dark hair on your face, don't shave it! It doesn't grow in thicker, as many think, but it feels like it does as the shaved ends are coarser. In-home waxing can be painful, and salon waxing or hair removal tend to get pricey (especially the latter). Many women are better off simply lightening the hair to make it less visible.

Many women skip a very important step in their makeup routing: exfoliate! Use a gentle exfoliant (there are many made just for the face) beforehand, and you'll find that makeup, moisturizer, and concealer go on more easily ... and look better, too!

Didn't choose your color so well? if you've done a home dye job with semipermanent color, use dandruff or clarifying shampoo to strip out the color (the exact reason you're often told not to use it!). SemiPermanent color takes about 48 hours to set, so make sure you shampoo in that time. If not, it should fade in 6-8 weeks.

If you suffer from acne, try essential oils like tea tree, bergamot, clove, lavendar, or rosewood. The more sensitive your skin is, the more you should dilute it before applying it -- be sure to follow the instructions on the bottle. If rash or irritation occurs, switch to a milder acne-fighting product or consult a dermatologist for other suggestions.
