Green Flash, one of the stars of Spring 2016’s hot Pantone colors, demands attention and screams confidence. This year, don’t keep your favorite Spring hues in the closet, bring them to dinner!  Green flash, 15-0146, reminds me of blanched green Spring vegetables.  There is nothing like oven roasted asparagus with a spicy, sweet finish.   Why not create a colorful, delicious dish that’s on trend!  Here is the recipe…

  5. Unlock Your Hip Flexors Review

    Want To Sabotage Your Goals? Do This! Want To Reach Your Goals? Do This! Muscle & Fiction, Huh, what's that? More than 96% of the people who start out on a diet and exercise program, fail to stick with the program after 6 to 8 weeks! Why?

  6. App Coiner Review

    These sites offer 70%-85% and sometimes higher returns on your investments, so you automatically assume that for every dollar you invest, you will get $1.85 in return. And this is true, if you win every option that you place. That would be perfect if these sites were in Fantasy Land, but we all know that you are not going to win every time. The small print tells you that you will lose 100% of your investment when that option doesn't come in. In essence you are risking $1 for $0.85 on what is essentially a 50/50 proposition. Those my friends are terrible odds.
