Thanks for visiting my blog: Lifestyle411.net I'm currently a lifestyle contributor for Thrive Global and Huffington Post, and my stories can also be found at https://journal.thriveglobal.com/@BevL and huffingtonpost.com/author/beverly-lim -- I'm a super mom/wife, great daughter & sister, cool aunt and awesome BFF. I stay organized, thanks to my smartphone, tablet, laptop and desktop. In addition to beauty, fashion, technology and traveling, I love arts & culture, food/wine, and indulge in very much needed "me" time whenever humanly possible! Dining out and cooking/entertaining family and friends throughout the year makes me happy. I'm addicted to shopping, so that I have everything to compliment my every mood. I enjoy a good jog, especially after a challenging work day so I can release endorphins. A great session on the treadmill or bike makes me smile from cheek to cheek, no matter how stressful of a day I had! When I'm home and after the family and pets are asleep, I pamper myself with a facial mask, hair treatment and lose myself in an aromatherapy bubble bath. It's like being on a dreamy spa getaway -- till the family wakes up and I have to feed the kids, the pets and walk the dogs... I just loving sharing new finds with all those who have the desire to discover the best of the best that life has to offer!
