Chocolate Coconut Chewy Macaroons (just like Neilsons)

Neilsons Chocolate MacaroonsIf I was to binge on commercial candy, I would choose Nielsons chocolate macaroons.

Oh my word the crunch, the Chocolate, the yum!

Honestly, I could never not eat the whole box and then want another.

That’s how much I used to LOVE these babies!

Attractiveness is not about the shape or weight of your body, it is related to how you feel - not to how you imagine others feel about you.

So how are you carrying yourself?

You can choose to stay frumpy wearing clothes that make you look fatter than you actually are to hide your bloated belly, the spare tire or muffin top - clothes that you’ve settled for and don’t love.

Keep your Curves & Be a Hot Granny!

 I have such fond memories as a young child of my grandma.

She was such a beauty.

She had long black hair with one thick band of contrasting grey and soft blue mysterious eyes.
