I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! After my first week back at work after vacation, the two days off were heavenly - I think it's always so hard settling back in after time away. Especially when that time away involved a cruise. And you know what that means... 24 hour food. Want a club sandwich at midnight? No problem, they'll bring you one quick as a flash! Needless to say, I feel like I've been on a famine since returning. But this is probably a good thing, if I constantly ate like I did on the cruise, well, I'd probably be the size of one.

So this got me thinking, how can I enjoy delicious treats as part of my everyday life while still making good choices? These are some simple suggestions to swap yourself skinny!

I love switching things up slightly so you can still have treats but they're not as bad for you. Do you know what else I love? Meeting other fabulous bloggers! I've had the sublime privilege of getting to know the gorgeous Carly from Lipgloss and Crayons - and if you haven't met her yet, you simply must!

Carly is all about everything I adore... fun, fashion, food and beauty! She shares the important things a girl needs to know, like how to create the most delicious Coffee Liqueur and prevent your hair color from fading!

Her beautiful photo shoots featuresuper chic outfits like this classic black and white with a pop of red lip color! I think Carly's a total fashionista (and ahead of the game, even Kourtney Kardashian's only just figured out this look is so now!)

Carly also hosts #YOLO Mondays, a fun weekly link-up party to share anything and everything! I love meeting new blog friends, so I'm always part of this - you should go link-up this week! It can be anything... an outfit, a giveaway, a story, a recipe... anything!

I promise a visit to Lipgloss and Crayons or Carly's Twitter will make your Monday complete! She's so much fun, you'll love getting to know her as much as I did!
