This magazine is great, if you don’t already know. The magazine has recipes (that are amazing!), articles about women who have lost the weight (and their inspiring before and after photos), and more.

If you’re on Weight Watchers, check out our recipe for 1 point plus Weight Watchers Lemon Muffins or our very popular Carrot Cake Weight Watchers Muffins. I also have a recipe for Weight Watchers-friendly Funfetti Muffins. They’re all really great recipes because even though I call them muffins (since that’s how they were introduced to me), they’re sort of like cupcakes without the frosting. I’ve used a similar recipe to make Mint Chocolate Muffins too.

Halloween Chocolate Bark

Need to bring a treat to a Halloween party? Try this Halloween chocolate bark recipe from just got an invitation to a Halloween party with a message to bring something to share. If you know me, you know I always read that as “bring dessert.” I always bring a sweet treat with me because I love desserts so I love making new ones, but also because I love dessert and always want some available at dinner or a party. So it sounds like a great reason to bring over my Halloween chocolate bark. And since I was making it, I figured I might as well post the recipe here, in case you have a late Halloween party you need to bring a treat to.

I picked up all the items for this Halloween chocolate bark at Walmart, where you can still purchase a ton of Halloween decor, costumes, and treats. You can also shop at for personalized Halloween items too.

Melt the orange candy wafers (while you’re spreading the chocolate). Drop dollops of it throughout the chocolate.

Using a toothpick, go side to side to incorporate the orange chocolate. You can go side to side as many times as it takes to really spread it out so it’s not clumpy. Don’t worry if there are gaps with no orange. We’ll take care of that next.

When you’re completely satisfied with going side to side, use the toothpick to go up and down the tray once. You cannot do this more than once without it looking like a mess.

Quickly place the peanut butter candies into the chocolate.

Carefully, place the candy eyeballs in the chocolate.

Allow it to cool in the fridge, preferably overnight. Use a knife to cut your bark into pieces. Serve it in chunks or in treat bags.

How Do You Style A Swing Dress?

Drugstore Divas received this dress and necklace for this style a swing dress post. Additional items were purchased by Drugstore Divas.

How do you style a swing dress? Find out four ways from’s mid-October and it’s still so warm here. We can wear shorts and tank tops all day, no problem. And suntans haven’t completely faded away yet. But I know, fall weather is right around the corner. And that means it’s time to think about things like scarves, hats, and ways to style a swing dress.

I decided I’m going to live in this swing dress from Cents of Style, once the weather decides it’s going to cool down enough for me to wear long sleeves. What’s great about this dress is even though it’s made for cooler weather, it’s not heavy. I love sweater dresses, but they’re so out of place here in the south until that one week in February when it’s cold. A swing dress made of knit jersey whatever whatever is perfect for our southern winters.

How do you style a swing dress?

Fashion is so subjective. You can dress however feels comfortable to you, no matter what. That’s the most important. But, if you’re looking to this post for ideas, my years of working retail, putting together fun outfits for people, are here to help.


A dress like this is a lot of material. It’s can wear you, if you’re not careful. So you need to pick out a statement piece to take some of the focus away from the large amount of solid color of this dress. I paired the dress with the Rylie Multi-Strand Necklace. All the strands really give eyes a focal point that’s not the dress. You want to give people a way to bounce around and take in every aspect of your outfit. If you’re just plain, there’s nothing for the eye to look at, and your outfit may fall short.

Short boots with heels go perfectly too. They scream fall, which is a great season for this dress. They also give the dress a little bit of an edge.

With A Scarf.

Until April, I never wore a fashion scarf. I lived in ones for the winter when my neck was cold, even knit a few myself, but I never wore a fashion scarf. But when we were going to a family wedding, my brother’s fiance lent me one and I loved it. She let me take it home and I’ve worn it numerous times since, every time with a solid-colored dress that needed a little pop. This swing dress is exactly that.


With A Hat.

Pete is a hat person. He wore one to my friend’s wedding once and that hat made its rounds to everyone — even the bride. Yup, hats can be great on women with dresses too. Plus, the majority of your body heat leaves through your head, so if you’re wearing this dress in winter, a hat will help keep you warm. And if you’re wearing it when it’s warm, just roll up the sleeves a little and pair the dress with a fun pair of flip flops. You’ll be able to dress it down a little bit that way too, in case you’re wearing it somewhere that’s casual.

With A Belt.

I love chunky belts and a swing dress is exactly the way to make one happen. It keeps the top of the dress form fitting while the bottom half stays flowing. It’s a really great way to get the best of everything out of this dress.

Speaking of, you can get a long-sleeve swing dress for just $21.95 shipped from Cents Of Style with the code DRESS2016. The dress comes in sizes Small to 3X and in 17 different colors, so you’re sure to find one you love. It’s usually $34.95, so this is a great deal. Put that savings towards a chunky necklace, blanket scarf, or a hat!

Grab-And-Go Breakfast Ideas

Drugstore Divas received one of the items in this post for review. Additional items were not compensated. All thoughts and opinions belong to Drugstore Divas.

Running out the door? Don't skip breakfast. Pick one of these grab-and-go breakfast ideas from launched a pasta sauce business in August, and every Saturday morning, we’ve been waking up at 5:45am to head to the local farmers’ market. After we wake up and shower, he packs the car and I pack us food for the day. I’ll make sandwiches for lunch, grab plenty of water, and I’ll pack a snack. I’m always looking for grab-and-go breakfast ideas, though. I don’t have enough time between when I wake up and when we have to leave to cook breakfast and then sit and eat it. If I wanted to do that, I’d have to be up at 5am — and that’s not possible after a Friday night, even if all we do is binge watch crime shows. Which, yes, is my favorite Friday night activity.

It’s been about ten weeks since we started at the market, which means I’ve had a bunch of time to think about breakfast ideas. In case you have a day when you’re running late or need to be out the door early, this list is for you. There’s nothing that needs to be kept in a fridge on this list because if you’re outdoors, like us, or in the car, you don’t have access to a fridge.

Grab-And-Go Breakfast Ideas

I don’t like soggy cereal, and I was never much of a milk drinker, so milk in cereal is not my thing. Since I eat it dry, it’s so easy for me to take it with me.

Pour cereal in a bag, throw in a plastic spoon, close it, and it’s there when you’re ready to eat. You can easily throw out the bag and spoon when you’re done, and you don’t have to worry about lugging around a plastic container.

When we first started going to the farmers’ market, I was on a huge fruit kick. Berries were in season — and on sale — and I could eat an entire box in one sitting. So I was packing a lot of fruit for breakfast.

Rinse the berries the night before, then put them in the fridge. By the time the morning comes, the box will be dry and you are able to pack it without worrying about it getting anything else wet. And, that box is disposable, so you don’t have to worry about bringing a container home. Now that apples are in season, just pack one of those and throw out the core when you’re done.

The grocery store where Pete used to work sold the best muffins. I would visit him at work, then check the discounted bakery items to see if any muffins were there. When there were, I would bring them home, cut them in half, and pack them for the market.

You can also make homemade muffins too. like carrot cake muffin recipe. If you like other pastries, go with that. Just keep in mind that anything flaky, like a croissant, is probably to messy for a grab-and-go breakfast.

Granola bars.
I love granola bars as a grab-and-go breakfast. It’s probably what I pack for us most often. Lately, I’ve been packing the new Sunbelt Bakery dark chocolate chunk chewy granola bars. They’re really tasty and, despite their small size (they’re only about an ounce each), they’re really filling. Plus, any excuse to eat chocolate for breakfast is good to me!


Speaking of Sunbelt Bakery, you can get a coupon for $.50 off a box here (limit 500). Head over to this link to find Sunbelt Bakery items in your area. If you’re local to me, you can find them at Piggly Wiggly, Walmart, and Lowes.

Shop Your Way: Possible Free Points For Entering The Wild Wins WednesdayInstant Win Game

shop your wayIf you know me, you know I love free money. And if you’re a fan of Drugstore Divas, you must love free money too. Also, if you’ve been around here, you read our posts about how you could get Shop Your Way points for free. Right now, you may get points for free.

First you must be a Shop Your Way member and have signed up under a personal shopper (for free). You can sign up under me via that link.

Then, head to the sweepstakes section and search for the Wild Wins Wednesday Instant Win Game. Right now, it’s a doorbuster, so everyone who enters while it is is getting the free points. It can stop being a doorbuster at any time, so hurry. It may take up to 24 hours to see the points in your account.

I usually use these free points to fill our pantry. Our local Kmart has a great grocery section, selling everything from pasta to chips to refrigerated items. I usually order packaged food online to use my points, but if you prefer to use yours in store, you can purchase those cold items. Just be sure to give your cashier the phone number associated with your Shop Your Way account at checkout and the register will apply any points and coupons you have available. 

This time of year, though, I usually save up all my points and then use them to pick up Christmas presents. Sears and Kmart have great gift items. You can purchase toys, clothes, home items, tools, and more. So you can find something for everyone on your holiday shopping list. But, if you’re looking for something specific that you can’t buy at Sears or Kmart, you can still use your free points on wrapping paper and tape — items that I blow through during the holidays.

What do you usually use your Shop Your Way points on?
