My friends and I went to Mexico in Takapuna the other night for dinner. The place was bustling on a Friday night and the service was perfect. We sat outside with a blanket near the heating. The food was amazing as per usual and I savoured every bite. I had the Pumpkin Quesadilla and Salsa Roja and chips. Both very fresh and full of flavour. I love all things Mexican and I've dreamt of travelling to Mexico for too long now... Maybe in 2014. www.mexico.net.nz

A friend on mine shared this on her Facebook page recently and I love it. I wish someone told me this when I was in my teens.
If a man wants you, nothing can keep him away. If he doesn't want you, nothing can make him stay. Stop making excuses for a man and his behavior. Allow your intuition (or spirit) to save you from heartache.
Stop trying to change yourself for a relationship that's not meant to be. Slower is better. Never live your life for a man before you find what makes you truly happy. If a relationship ends because the man was not treating you as you deserve then heck no, you can't "be friends". A friend wouldn't mistreat a friend.
Don't settle. If you feel like he is stringing you along, then he probably is. Don't stay because you think "it will get better." You'll be mad at yourself a year later for staying when things are not better. The only person you can control in a relationship is you. Avoid men who have a bunch of children by a bunch of different women. He didn't marry them when he got them pregnant, why would he treat you any differently? Always have your own set of friends separate from his. Maintain boundaries in how a guy treats you. If something bothers you, speak up. Never let a man know everything. He will use it against you later.
You cannot change a man's behavior. Change comes from within. Don't EVER make him feel he is more important than you are. Even if he has has more education or in a better job. Do not make him into a quasi-god. He is a man, nothing more nothing less.
Never let a man define who you are. Never borrow someone else's man. If he cheated with you, he'll cheat on you. A man will only treat you the way you ALLOW him to treat you. All men are NOT dogs.
You should not be the one doing all the bending... Compromise is two way street. You need time to heal between relationships. There is nothing cute about baggage... Deal with your issues before pursuing a new relationship. You should never look for someone to COMPLETE you. A relationship consists of two WHOLE individuals. Look for someone complimentary...not supplementary.
Dating is fun... Even if he doesn't turn out to be Mr. Right. Make him miss you sometimes... When a man always know where you are, and you're always readily available to him ~ he takes it for granted. Never move into his mother's house. Never co-sign for a man. Don't fully commit to a man who doesn't give you everything that you need. Keep him in your radar but get to know others.
Scared of being alone is what makes a lot of women stay in relationships that are abusive or hurtful: Dr. Phil says... You should know that: You're the best thing that could ever happen to anyone and if a man mistreats you, he'll miss out on a good thing. If he was attracted to you in the 1st place, just know that he's not the only one. They're all watching you, so you have a lot of choices. Make the right one. Ladies take care of your own hearts... ❤
When it comes to lip products you can never have enough. I always have one at arms reach whether it be in the car or at my desk. The Nivea Lip Butters arrived in a gift box one afternoon with matching macaroons for each flavour. What a delicious idea!
Lip butters are a bit different to the traditional lipbalm. They are much thicker in consistency, is more moisturising and you end up using less. Perfect timing considering we are just heading Autumn here in New Zealand. The Nivea Lip Buter range comes in 3 different flavours- Unscented, Vanilla & Macadamia and Caramel. My favourite is the caramel, it smells exactly like caramel fudge. Nivea Lip Butters are formulated with Niveas own Hydra IQ which naturally hydrates skin from inside out and also contains shea butter to protect sensitive skin, almosd oil with Vitamin E to help calm and condion the most dryest of skin.
RRP $5.49. They will be available at your local supermarket from mid-April, 2013.
Karen Walker has collaborated with Japanese mega-retailer Uniqlo on a childrenswear collection. ‘KW2 by KAREN WALKER’, the one-season collection will be available in UNIQLO’s 262 premier stores around the world.
Next month is Endometriosis Awareness month. The lovely people are Redcurrent have released a series of limited edition iPhone cases to help raise awareness of the condition and improve the lives of girls and women.
Endometriosis is a hormonal and immune disease that affects six percent of New Zealand's female population - that’s around 130,000 women and girls as young as eight. The name comes from the word, endometrium, which is the tissue that lines the inside of the uterus. In “endo” tissue like the endometrium is found growing in places outside the uterus where it shouldn't be. Symptoms include crippling menstrual and pelvic pain, infertility and the worst part is many women remain undiagnosed for years.
So, carry out an act of kindness and support this great cause. Half of the proceeds from their sale go straight to Endometriosis NZ. There are three stylish iPhone cases to choose from and they retail for $29.50.
To purchase online, head over to www.redcurrent.co.nz. For more information on Endometriosis or other ways you can help, visit www.nzendo.co.nz
