Joss Stone-Lauryn Hill-MUSIC-SO DOPE!

I LOVE Joss Stone. Love Love Love her. For her being from the UK and in her early 20's, she has this rare soul voice I love. She's total funk but also R&B

When I heard Lauryn Hill (1 of my ALL TIME FAVS) did a track with her, I WAS SHOCKED!

Not only is this BEAT hard as hell, Joss Stone's Lryics speak to music lovers everywhere

It's like a love song to Music.

I posted the Lryics below the video.


Nothing in this world got me like you do baby
I'd give up my soul
If I couldn't sing with you daily
I'm not the only girl
In love with you it's crazy
I appreciate your groove
Now I know I owe everything to you

I'm so in love with my music
The way you keep me
Ain't nobody doing what you're doing
Doing, doing
So bring me back to the day
When tape decks press play
DJ drop the needle til the
Record just break
You are my sunlight
You are the one mic
That sound so sweet because the beat just inspires me

No limit to your mind
Your endless love is open
To every race and kind
Could it be your blood runs golden
Baby if this world were mine
We would be singing in the Key of Life
When you're gone I can't survive
Cause I just can't be without my

I'm so in love with my music
The way you keep me
Ain't nobody doing what you're doing
Doing, doing
So bring me back to the day
When tape decks press play
DJ drop the needle til the
Record just break
You are my sunlight
You are the one mic
That sound so sweet because the beat just inspires me

Colours of sound
Scales and beauty
Audio scenery
Electric love and
Rhythmic symmetry
Written in memory
Beautifully crafted scenery
Complex or simplicity
Sonic energy
Piercing insensitivity
Sympathetic poetry
For some even identity
Collective entity
Something to belong to
A source of energy
The possibilities
Wave lengths and bandwith
Higher vibration
Energizing entire lands with
Or stand for
Lovers to walk hand in hand with
then plan for
Sanctuary chords
Harmony, melodies, even riffs can be
Disguised human essence
Sonically bottled ecstasy
Or melancholy
Agony blues angst
Exercising anxieties
Fueling entire societies
Making economies
Stimulating generating
Inspiration synonymously
Entertaining expression
Intangible invisible but undeniable
Plays the language of excitement on survival
Some call it tribal
But perspective is everything
Connected to everything
Some say collectively everything

I'm so in love with my music
The way you keep me
Ain't nobody doing what you're doing
Doing, doing
So bring me back to the day
When tape decks press play
DJ drop the needle til the
Record just break
You are my sunlight
You are the one mic
That sound so sweet because the beat just inspires me

"The Roof" Remix Mariah Carey Ft. Mobb Deep -MY FAV!

I've always been a fan of Mariah, No one can sing like her. I respect the fact that unlike other Pop superstars who use Hip Hop classics without giving any credit, Mariah Does, She's done tracks with everyone from Jay-Z to ODB(Wu-Tang) R.I.P.

I remember I was in high school back in 97 when her "Butterfly" album came out, 1 of my fav albums of hers personally.

Last night I was youtube and came across one of her videos. I went online to look at her discography and played of "The Roof" from Butterfly , I remember digging that song but for some reason now I'm stuck on it.. "Shook Ones" is a Hip Hop classic, it's a staple.. mando in any collection.

So the fact she did a remix to "Shook Ones pt 2" by making "The Roof" with MOBB DEEP makes it that more dope to me.

Anywho, I didn't know she made a video with them! Thanks YOUTUBE! lol

7 Bad eating habits

Lose Weight Permanently - Avoid These 7 Bad Eating Habits

Tuesday, July 28, 2009 by Diane Gilabert
binge-eatingAre you trying to lose weight permenantly? See if any of these 7 bad eating habits are sabotaging your natural healthy diet.

1. Skipping Meals

Skipping meals robs your body of the regular nutrition it requires to operate at peak efficiency. Studies show that frequent meal skippers retain more fat than participants who eat at least every 4 to 5 hours.

Why do you skip meals? Do you run out of time? Carry healthy snacks like Clif Bars, fresh fruit, and nuts for emergencies. Do you skip breakfast? Eating a healthy breakfast is critical to jump start your metabolism and prevent overeating later in the day.

2. Eating Out Often

If you hate to cook or have to travel frequently, then eating out is a way of life. Restaurant meals and fast food tend to be loaded with fat and salt and skimpy on fruits and vegetables.

Try to make at least a few healthy meals a week at home. Here are some quick and easy recipes for a whole food, plant-based diet:

Choose the right restaurant and order carefully. Here are some suggestions for healthy dining out on a vegan diet:

3. Late Night Snacking

This is one bad habit that you just need to go cold turkey and ditch. Resolve not to eat after dinner and stick to it. First throw out or give away all the foods that you tend to snack on late at night. Then vary your after-dinner routine. The first couple days will be the most challenging, but then you will get used to it.

4. Constant Grazing

Healthy snacks a couple of times a day will help prevent overeating and control hunger. However, if you find yourself eating continually throughout the day then you are likely consuming too many calories no matter what you're eating.

Stick to one or two snacks a day and make sure to control portions. Here's a recent blog post on healthy snacking to guide you:

5. Portion Non-control

Maybe you have resolved to follow a healthy living diet but you are still overweight. Be honest with yourself about the size of your meals and snacks. Are you supersizing your way to fat?

Don't fall into old traps like thinking you need to "clean your plate" or wanting to polish off food to avoid leftovers. Avoid mindless eating by turning off the TV and eating slowly.

6. Being Too Perfect then Binge Eating

Are you the type who follows a strict diet then loses control and overeats? Binge eating can be caused by being too restrictive. We crave what we can't have. Allow yourself small doses of healthy indulgences once in a while to avoid eating an entire pint of ice cream or bag of chips.

Here are some healthy dessert recipes if your relentless sweet tooth is wreaking havoc on your healthy lifestyle diet:

7. Skimping on Fruits and Vegetables

The best way to lose weight for life without hunger is to adopt a whole food, plant-based diet. You can never go wrong eating mostly fruits and vegetables. Eat a big salad every day. A high fiber diet of mostly fruits and vegetables will result in permanent weight loss and vibrant health.

If you have more than one of these bad eating habits don't make the mistake of trying to tackle them all at once. Choose one to focus on for two or three weeks then move on to the next one.

Bad habits are never easy to break, but with commitment and focus you can maintain a healthy weight.

6 simple lifestyle changes to lose weight!

Lose Weight Permanently with 6 Simple Lifestyle Changes

Friday, July 24, 2009 by Diane Gilabert
healthy-breakfastWe are bombarded with so much information on how to lose weight for life it's difficult to know where to start and who to believe. Permanent weight loss doesn't have to be complicated. Here are 6 simple changes to lose weight permanently:

1. Eat breakfast

The evidence is overwhelming that people who eat a healthy breakfast are less likely to be overweight. Once you develop the breakfast habit you will be amazed at how much more energy you have.

Eating a healthy breakfast prevents overeating and unhealthy food choices later in the day. What should you eat? Choose high fiber, low sugar breakfast cereals with soy milk or rice milk with fresh fruit, oatmeal with sliced bananas or blueberries, or a Clif Bar if you're in a hurry.

Here are some healthy breakfast recipes for those mornings when you have time to make something special

2. Move More

If you haven't been exercising at all, start by walking 15 minutes a day. Build that up to 45 minutes a day and the pounds will drop off.

If you're already a regular exerciser, then change up your routine, add weight training, yoga, or high intensity cardio to your workouts to jump start fat burning and boost your metabolism.

3. Purge Your Space

There is a profound connection between clutter and fat. Set aside an hour or two every weekend to tackle your extra "stuff". Clear out a drawer or closet at a time.

Purge your space, especially your kitchen, to make room to prepare healthy meals, discard processed foods, and free up space for fresh fruits and vegetables and whole grains.

4. Eat a Salad Every Day

Salads will fill you up with healthy greens and raw fruits and vegetables. Salads don't have to be boring and they are a staple of every healthy weight loss program. Check out this blog post on healthy ways to jazz up your salads:

5. Sleep More

That's right sleeping more will help you lose weight permanently. There are other health benefits as well. Check out this blog post on 5 reasons to sleep more

6. Eat Healthy Snacks

Choose healthy snacks to keep your metabolism stoked, your energy level high, and avoid overeating due to hunger. Your body burns calories and operates most efficiently when it has regular nourishment every 4 hours or so. Be prepared-keep emergency stashes of healthy nuts, Clif Bars, and fresh fruit available.

A healthy lifestyle should include regular snacks that are packed with high quality protein, fiber, and nutrients. Here’s a blog post that discusses healthy snacks:

Don't be among the 95% of dieters who fail to lose weight permanently. Make sensible healthy lifestyle changes that stick and you'll lose weight for life.

Purify your body-5 Summer Foods

Purify Your Body With These 5 Summer Foods

Wednesday, July 22, 2009 by Diane Gilabert
tomatoesA whole food, plant-based diet will purify your body naturally. Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables and drinking lots of water is the best way to detox.

The abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables in summer makes it easier to purify your body. High water content, abundant vitamins and minerals, and plenty of fiber combine to make eating these fresh summer foods a smart choice.

Want to be slimmer and healthier? Consume lots of these 5 delicious summer foods.

1. Blueberries

Blueberries are nature's candy, sweet and delicious. They're also packed with anti-oxidants and fiber to naturally cleanse your digestive system and even prevent cancer. Use generous amounts of blueberries on cereal, fruit salads, and right out of the carton as a perfect snack.

2. Tomatoes

Bright red tomatoes are at their peak in summer. Tomatoes are a versatile fruit that purify your body with vitamin C, fiber, and anti-oxidants. I grew up eating tomato, cucumber, and onion salads made from the vegetables in our garden. Add a little extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar for a healthy side dish.

3. Watermelon

What's better than a sweet, cool, crunchy piece of watermelon on a hot summer day? Watermelon is one treat that you don't have to feel guilty about. Health benefits include generous amounts of vitamin C and anti-oxidants like beta-carotene and lycopene.

4. Peaches

A medium peach has only 35 calories. Peaches are high in vitamin C, iron, and potassium, and also contain the phytonutrients lycopene and lutein. A ripe peach is 80% water, so eating fresh peaches is a natural lose weight flush.

5. Summer Squash (aka Zucchini)

Summer squash is a versatile vegetable with only 18 calories per half cup serving. Summer squash has plenty of fiber, vitamin C, folate, and beta-carotene. As a bonus, the nutrients in summer squash have been associated with reducing inflammation.

Lose Weight Permanently - Get Inspired by Others

Thursday, July 16, 2009 by Diane Gilabert
ripped-absThe internet has some awesome lose weight resources. I admit it - today I have a bit of writers' block. I've read a lot of excellent articles the past couple of days and nothing I've tried to write has measured up.

So today I'm taking the easy way out. I'm going to share some inspiring articles about people who've conquered their eating issues and achieved vibrant health.

Here’s a story about a man who lost over 400 pounds by adopting healthy habits little by little. He rejected the easy ways out like weight loss surgery. Wow if he can lose 400 pounds, surely we can all be patient enough with healthy lifestyle change to reach our goals!

Here's a great Zen Habits post on 3 simple ways to help the environment and get fit at the same time.

If you think vegan food is boring, here's an enlightening article on cooking gourmet vegetarian food…and I'm not even much of a cook!

Here's a mother who lost 3 stone (that's 42 pounds) because she didn't want to pass on her bad habits to her kids. Remember those commercials in the 70s that showed a young boy copying his father's smoking habit? What message is unhealthy eating and lack of exercise sending to our children?

I also have to share a new blog I found this week by Susan Bodendorfer. Her situation is so similar to mine it's almost scary. She also has an auto-immune disease and found that a whole food, plant-based diet improved her condition dramatically and also helped her lose weight. Check it out:

10 ways to Conquer Emotional Eating

Conquer Emotional Eating - 10 Strategies

Wednesday, July 15, 2009 by Diane Gilabert
husky-puppyEmotional eating leads to guilt, which leads to more emotional eating. To succeed at losing weight permanently you need to get control of emotional eating. Try these 10 substitute behaviors to improve your self-esteem and stop the destructive cycle.

1. Exercise - Emotional eating is often caused by stress. Exercising reduces stress and releases "feel good" endorphins. People who exercise regularly tend to crave healthy, natural foods. Vigorous exercise is the most effective, but even a walk around the block can help keep problems in perspective.

2. Reach Out To a Friend
- Healthy lifestyle change requires a support system. Share your health and weight loss goals with a good friend. Arrange to call her when you are tempted to binge.

3. Have a Good Laugh - Watch a comedy or surf YouTube for funny videos. Laughter reduces stress and burns calories too. Just don't snack while you watch!

4. Purge Your Space
, Especially Your Kitchen - You are not likely to binge on healthy food, so make it tough to give in to your cravings by getting rid of all the junk food. Replace the unhealthy food with fresh fruits and vegetables. It's unlikely you'll sabotage your healthy weight loss plan by pigging out on apples or celery!

5. Take a Nap
- Lack of sleep lowers our defenses and makes it more difficult to cope with stress and challenges. Often we think we're hungry when we're really eating to combat fatigue. If you can't get the 7 or 8 hours of sleep you need, then take a nap.

6. Interact With Your Pet - Our pets never judge us and they are always there for us. They also need us. So the next time you are tempted to succumb to your unhealthy cravings, play with your cat or take your dog for a walk.

7. Clean Out a Closet
- Studies show that you are more likely to be overweight if your house is a mess. There is a clear connection between clutter and fat. Purge your space and declutter to feel better and forget about your cravings.

8. Find an Online Buddy - If it's late at night you may be reluctant to reach out to a friend, so why not troll the countless online support forums for a supportive buddy? Even reading diet success stories or hearing about other people's similar struggles can make you feel strong enough to avoid destructive behavior. Don't go it alone - often the root of emotional eating is loneliness, so reaching out to someone who cares can squelch the cravings.

9. Volunteer - Helping someone else in need pumps up your self-esteem and gives you purpose. Why not help coach your kids' soccer team or walk dogs at the local humane society? Give back even from the comfort of your computer by visiting a site like that feeds the hungry while you improve your vocabulary.

10. Write in Your Gratitude Journal
- Writing down what you are thankful for puts the negative things in perspective. Acknowledging the blessings in your life makes the setbacks seem less daunting. Focus on what's good in your life and you will be less likely to binge on unhealthy food.

Emotional eating prevents many from permanent weight loss. Substitute positive activities to keep from binging.

Which strategies work for you?

Top 5 Changes for Permanent Weight loss

Lose Weight Permanently - Top 5 Changes You Need to Make

Wednesday, July 8, 2009 by Diane Gilabert
Did you know that 95% of dieters fail to lose weight permanently? Pretty daunting huh?

I'm not trying to give you an excuse to abandon your health and weight loss goals. A little education can help you succeed at permanent weight loss. The top 5 changes you need to make may surprise you.

1. Commit to Permanent Lifestyle Changes

Stop thinking about weight loss as a diet that you will go off of once you have lost the weight. Diets aren't sustainable because inevitably the weight creeps back when people return to their pre-diet unhealthy eating habits.

Successful weight loss means making a commitment to adopting a healthy lifestyle. That doesn't mean perfection. Follow the 90/10 rule and exercise regularly, and you will keep the weight off.

2. Get Educated About Healthy Food Choices

Rigid diets that require you to eat only cabbage soup for days or drink shakes instead of meals don't teach you how to make healthy food choices. The same goes for Nutrisystem or Jenny Craig where you get prepackaged meals delivered. Sure those programs would love for you to stay on them forever!

Successful dieters educate themselves about what to eat and how to eat to stay slim and healthy for life. Don't listen to the marketing claims of food conglomerates or supplement peddlers. Here are some lose weight resources that cut through the hype

3. Scare Yourself About the Risks of Being Overweight

On July 7 ABC Evening News had a segment called "What Exactly Does a 6,190 Calorie Lunch Do To Your Body?" I promise you'll be scared after this 2 and a half minute video.

The risk of developing diseases such as heart disease, cancer, high blood pressure, and diabetes can be significantly reduced by maintaining a healthy weight and moderate exercise.

Sure heredity plays a role. But don't be conned into believing there's nothing you can do - on the contrary, eating healthy and exercising regularly will profoundly impact your quality of life.

Do you want to dance at your grandkids' weddings? Enjoy the retirement you've worked so hard for? Then commit to healthy weight loss.

4. Adopt a Whole Food, Plant-based Diet

What's the healthiest diet? A vegan diet, with maybe a serving of fish high in Omega-3s once or twice a week. But of course that doesn't sell weight loss products or diet books, so it's almost impossible to learn that fact. Be skeptical when you hear claims that sound too good to be true. Think about the motivation behind them.

Even the nutrition experts who disagree on everything else agree that we would all be healthier if we consumed "mostly plants". (Check out In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan for the source on this

5. Don't Put Off Making Changes

Don't practice "all or nothing behavior" or put off making healthy lifestyle changes until conditions are perfect. Start today, right now with your next meal.

How many times have you eaten something "forbidden" and then binged the rest of the day, justifying it by saying to yourself that you already blew it so you'll start again tomorrow.

Or you look ahead and see your cousin's wedding, a family reunion, the holidays, whatever and you think "I can't possibly eat healthy tomorrow, this week, this month, or during the holidays". Before you know it, you've gained another 10 pounds and you're no closer to getting started.

Don't fall in to that trap. Every meal and snack is an opportunity to fill your body with healthy, wholesome food. Don't feel guilty. Just eat healthy 90% of the time and you'll reach your goal.

10 Healthy Weight Loss Tips

10 Healthy Weight Loss Tips

Friday, July 31, 2009 by Diane Gilabert

uncle sam posterWant to lose weight permanently? It's all about lifestyle change. Diets don't work. Adopt healthy eating and exercise habits for life and you will be slim forever.

Here are 10 healthy weight loss tips to help you lose weight for life:

1. Make your mantra "stay as close to nature as possible". Avoid processed foods. Choose packaged foods with the fewest ingredients, and only ones that you recognize.

2. Successful weight loss doesn't mean eating LESS, it means eating DIFFERENTLY. Instead of going hungry, cut down on calorie-dense foods (fatty-sugary foods) and eat more lower-calorie or lighter foods, especially those rich in dietary fiber.

3. Get support. Don't go it alone, whether it's a friend, family member, or an on-line buddy. Even visiting support forums on dieting websites can help you resist binging.

4. Cut calories easily by eating foods with a higher liquid content and less density like fruits and vegetables. Less dense foods naturally have fewer calories and will keep you satisfied longer.

5. High fiber foods are best. You'll feel more satisfied with fewer calories, your digestion will improve, and you will have a better chance of avoiding diseases like cancer, heart disease, and strokes. Learn more about the benefits of a high fiber diet in this article

6. Minimize sugar (read labels - it's in everything). The more sugar you eat, the more difficult it will be to lose weight. Sugar spikes your blood glucose levels which makes you hungry soon after eating and keeps you from burning stored fat.

7. Get enough sleep. Adequate, restful sleep is critical for maintaining a healthy weight. Here's one article that discusses a recent study on weight loss and sleep

8. Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today. Don't postpone healthy eating until "after the holidays" or "I'll start on Monday". Every meal is another opportunity to improve your health and work toward your weight loss goals. Here's an article on 10 Bogus Weight Loss Excuses and how to beat them

9. Put your goals in positive terms like "I will eat a salad every day" or "I will walk at least 30 minutes every day". Healthy lifestyle change requires a positive attitude!

10. Eat a healthy breakfast. Breakfast kick starts your metabolism and provides energy for your morning. Choose fresh fruit and whole grain cereal or oatmeal, or a soy yogurt. Want to know the best 6 breakfast cereals for weight loss? Check out this article

What are your favorite healthy weight loss tips?

3 low cal *Vegan* summer dinners

*I did not write this, I copied this from my favorite site "Lose Weight For life"

Summer is the ideal season to adopt a healthy living diet. The heat takes the edge off your appetite. Fresh fruits and vegetables are abundant. And motivation is high when we’re wearing shorts and bathing suits.

Probably the most common question I get is “so what do vegans eat anyway?” Example meal plans for weight loss often convince people wanting to adopt a healthy living diet that it’s doable.

Here are 3 suggestions for healthy, low calorie dinners that are perfect for summer.

Vegetable stir-fry, Brown Rice, Blueberry Sorbet

Here’s the basic recipe for vegetable stir-fry. Substitute summer squash and halved cherry tomatoes for some of the other vegetables, or whatever your local farmers’ market is featuring.

Serve the stir-fry with wholesome, high-fiber brown rice for a filling, healthy dinner.

Blueberries are in season in summer. Freeze some blueberries for an hour in a plastic freezer bag and then make this vegan sorbet A no guilt, icy dessert!

Vegan Lettuce Wraps, Chickpea Spinach Salad, Fruit Salad

Vegan Lettuce Wraps and Chickpea Spinach Salad are awesome paired together and there’s very little cooking. Perfect for hot summer days.

Why not make a generous fruit salad with watermelon, strawberries, peaches, plums, and green grapes? If you’re in a hurry you can even cheat and pick up pre-cut melon at the grocery store to speed up preparation. Sprinkle in a little stevia for extra sweetness, and add some chopped walnuts for crunch.

Vegan Barbecue, Grilled Corn on the Cob, Coleslaw, Ambrosia

Who says grills are only for meat? Make a healthy vegan barbecue!

Start with skewers of vegetables like pieces of summer squash, chunks of onion, slices of red and green bell peppers, and large mushrooms. Make a glaze of olive oil, minced garlic, and sea salt to brush on during grilling.

grilled-corn-on-the-cobCorn on the cob is awesome on the grill. First remove loose husks and silk. Then soak the ears in water for about 15 minutes. Pour out the excess water. Place the ears of corn on the grill.

If you’re using a gas grill, use medium-high heat and turn the corn every 5 minutes (be sure to use tongs!).

If you’re grilling on an old-fashioned smokey joe with a cover, turn them every 15 minutes. The corn steams inside the husks in 30-45 minutes. You’ll know it’s done when it looks like the picture at the left.

Remove from the grill. Peel off the husks under warm running water. Serve with Earth Balance Buttery Spread (vegan), sea salt, and pepper.

This coleslaw is the perfect crisp, cool side dish for your barbecue Or you can serve a large green salad with fresh tomatoes, romaine lettuce, cucumbers, and red onions.

This Vegan Ambrosia is a tangy, juicy dessert you can make ahead of time.

My Favorite Nail Products!

So.. I am obsessed with My nails. Ever since I let them grow out. Thank god my nails are strong and healthy, even after I've had Acrylics on for months.

I wanted to do a video blog for this, not sure why but I felt like it. Obviously that wasn't accessible to me at this time.

When I actually let them grow out, they are gorgeous if I do say so myself! and I do!!!

I am forever changing colors, trying to find the Nail Polish that actually doesn't chip!

I LOVE getting the French Tips when I get acrylics but I have the hardest time trying to do it myself on my natural nails.

I even used those white strips they sell to help you shape them, yea.. well doesn't really work for me. At times the white "stripe" on my natural nails can become kind of bulky.

So I went to walmart looking for a hot dark pink kind of color, and I was thinking about getting some white nail polish.

Then I saw THIS!

I even saw it in BLACK!

So I went home and omg I was shocked at how easy it is. Now the best part is, even when it's dry it doesn't CHIP! It's so SMOOTH!

I went to take it off, and I got the Nail Polish Remover, a trick to get it off fast is if you put some removal on a cotton ball then press it on the nail, hold it there for 3-5 seconds, the color on the nail comes off CLEAN!

I always do that, and to my surprise the white tip was very hard to come off, which I LOVED!

Before I give it all the credit to the French Tip Pen, I do give it a 100%, however, a good 10% of the outcome came about from a multi use -Emery Board I got. One side of the Emery Board is for Shaping, and on the other was half for Smoothing and the other for Shine. I loved that it was clearly marked and color coated so it's "Fool Proof" Makes a HUGE difference in the appearance of my nails.
This Emery Board/Shine/Smoothing (I got at CVS for $3.00!) in 1 is a Product from "Trim" they have a really good line of inexpensive Nail Tools at

Now I also needed a new base and top coat, usually I get them from Sally Hansen but I ended up going with this. I am very pleased with the outcome with this product as well, this is from Nailene (who also makes the French Tip Pen)

Yes, I could have gotten the French Tip Pen Kit but I don't really like beige color that came with it.

I'm not the best photographer, My hands look like Monkey Feet lol. I tried my best =)

ALSO! I ended up getting DIGITAL from Salley Hansen from their Hi Definition Nail Color Line.

I LOVE IT! It was only $5.00 and I am very happy with it.

It looks different colors because of the sun outside. I think it looks way better in person though!

Makes my nails look like Acrylics but NOPE "They are Real & Fabulous" lol. ! I love getting my nails done but not having to go every 2 weeks for a fill. I don't miss that at all.

By the way I got all these products from Wal-Mart! Except the Emery Board.
