    I made a new years resolution to lose some weight. SO what am I going to do? I heard one of my good friends talking about this new product called green coffee bean extract . I think I will try to grab a one month supply and see if I can get rid of a few of those nagging pounds around my tummy. I heard you can lose up to 5 pounds in a week. We will see…Ill make sure to keep you guys informed of any results I see.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea
    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
    said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and
    it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!

      Kiedyś chciałam sprawdzić ile wytrzymam bez wizyty u kosmetyczki i depilacji laserowej…. Długo to nie trwało dosłownie 2 tygodnie.. Wiem może to uzależnienie, ale cóż poradzić… dlatego serdecznie polecam depilacja laserowa poznań , ponieważ w tym miejscu zabiegi to czysta przyjemność. Pytano mnie czy się nie boję tak częstych wizyty u kosmetyczki. Odpowiedziałam, że widać, że nigdy na takiej wizycie nie były. Mogę stwierdzić, że depilacja laserowa to część mojego życia i to oczywiście tego lepszego ha! Korzystajcie i niczego się nie bójcie. Będziecie zadowolone! Depilacja laserowa górą!
