Favorites!

I’m not gonna lie, I’ve been in a slump lately.  Hoping this will get me out of it now that I have time to dedicate to blog.  I’m hoping for a post 2 or 3 times a week!  Going for 3 times a week.  I haven’t done a “Favorites” post in sooooooo long so here we go!

  1. Arbonne Perfecting Liquid Foundation
    Arbonne FoundationThis is my favorite foundation!  It is weightless and 100% vegan!  It doesn’t irritate my skin at all.  I can wear it from morning to night and not feel a thing.  With other foundations, it would irritate my skin by the end of the day, but this one does not make me feel like I’m wearing makeup.  I am in the color neutral beige, but I usually have to buy another one because I get super tan in the summer.  It is literally the best foundation I have ever used.  You can order your foundation here!

    2. Arbonne Makeup Primer
    Arbonne Primer
    Best makeup primer ever!  It is not oily and works like it needs to!  For those who don’t know, the Arbonne brand is pure, safe, and beneficial.  There are no dyes, no parabens, no animal products, etc.  As we are all getting older please be careful what you are putting on your skin.  26 seconds is all it takes for the chemicals in your personal care products to enter your bloodstream.

    3. Arbonne the Real Conceal
    Arbonne Concealer
    Love this concealer!  Just like the foundation, it is light weight.  Arbonne has seven different shades and they match perfectly, and just like the foundation, I will have to get two different colors because of the summer time.

    4. Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Palette
    Rainforest of the Sea
    As you all know, I have a problem and I love neutral palettes.  😀  I can’t help it!  It is very pigmented though.  I love this palette!  Tarte has stepped up their game when they created the Rain Forest of the Sea line.  I feel like the pink and purple are like mermaid colors, I love these colors and they are all shimmer!  I got this from Sephora, and it retails for $36.

    5. Milani’s Matte Lip Creme (Adorable)
    Amour Matte lip creme
    Probably the perfect nude lip.  It is also the dupe for Kylie’s Candy K lip color.  I think this retails for $6-$8 vs. Kylie Cosmetics $29.  I love this color and wear it all the time.  Definitely check out more colors from Milani.

    6. NYX HD Finishing Powder
    NYX setting powder
    HOLY GRAIL.  The only finishing powder I use.  For $10, that’s a steal!  The perfect makeup setter.  My makeup stays and is matte.  It doesn’t dry out my face.  I got this at Ulta, but you can also get it at Target or wherever they sell NYX products.  This is my favorite drugstore brand.

    Thank you all for reading!  I am making it my goal to blog three times a week so I will hold myself to that.  If you want, you can drop some ideas down below in the comments, and I will try my best to accommodate it!

    Happy Monday

Las Vegas!

  You’re probably wondering, where the hell I’ve been.  Well, on Sunday technically Monday at 2am, I just flew back from Las Vegas for Arbonne’s Global Training Conference (GTC)!  It was my first one ever, and I met a ton of great people, got to know my roommates and teammates better, and learned A LOT.  At GTC there were 20,000+ people!  Don’t believe the hype:
The conference was at the MGM Grand Arena, and then there was an Abundance area aka the overflow room that had 15,000 people in there!  One of the best conferences I’ve ever been to.
Team Freedom at Tom Urbans!  Shout out to Stacey Lindsey for treating us to dinner that night.
If you’ve ever been to Vegas, lots of walking, eating, and drinking.  There were a lot of great speakers that changed my life the past week.  I even met my spirit animal who was the keynote speaker at GTC.
The picture above, there was a shop Arbonne boutique and two giant “a’s” that you could sign.  Pretty sure I signed Team Freedom STL…and something else then drew a heart around it.

Please stayed tuned because I will be starting a YouTube channel soon!

Genius Ultra

#arbonne

Hello all!  It’s been way too long and I’ve been way too stressed.  I’ve had a lot of cheer related events going on and our season is still not over.  So to deal with the stress, I’ve been pampering myself with the Genius Ultra from Arbonne!

You can purchase the Genius Ultra by itself, but who wouldn’t want the products to go with it.  The three products that I received (Arbonne is running a special right now on this, until supplies last) is the firming neck cream, the serum, and lifting and contouring eye cream.

I wash my face with my Arbonne smoothing facial cleanser and then use the eye cream under my eyes.  I dot it all under my eye and use the Genius Ultra in circular motions to apply the cream.  Before I apply the eye cream, I use the serum since it makes my face firm.  I let it dry and let my skin absorb it and then I use the eye cream.  The eye cream delivers the appearance of a more lifted, awakened skin.  It tones the skin and restores a firmer look to the eye area.

Not only do you have to use the Genius Ultra with the eye cream, but with any of your moisturizers.  The device has three levels of warmth (yes, it warms up and makes your face feel awesome).  You’ll want to pat any remaining product on to your skin, do not rub.  After you are finished, you’ll want to clean the Genius Ultra with a soft cloth.

As for the neck cream, I use this before putting on any moisturizer.  This neck cream helps smooth fine lines and wrinkles.  It has become a favorite of mine.  The entire RE9 Advance set from Arbonne is what I’ve replaced my full morning and night routine with.

Redefine Healthy Living

Hello again!  I’ve been doing this detox (Yes, you can still eat).  It’s been one of the best ones I’ve ever been on, to be honest.  It’s with Arbonne and I learned more about it by listening in on a healthy happy hour workshop (:  Here’s the deal with all of the products I’m using.

  1. Digestive Plus
    This is something you drink first thing in the morning.  Take it like a shot.  That’s what I do anyways.  Arbonne’s Digestive Plus promotes digestion and nutrient uptake.  It supports your intestinal wall, antibiotics, medications and stress.  It improves calcium absorption and manufactures B vitamins.
  2. Energy Fizz Sticks
    Replacement for coffee and soda.  I will drink one of these after I drink my breakfast (protein shake), we’ll get into that next.  Actually, I drink one of these around like 9-10am.  Fizz sticks help with that mid morning/mid day slump  These boost your metabolism and they are free of artificial sweeteners, flavors, or color.  You can get these in two flavors, citrus and pomegranate.  I mix this with about 6-8oz of water.
  3. Protein (1lb of Vanilla & 1lb of Chocolate)
    In the morning and sometimes after a workout instead of eating, I’ll make a protein shake.  (:  I use 2 scoops of protein with 10oz of liquid.  It can be water, almond milk, whatever you want your base to be.  Then you will add in 1/4 or 1/2 a scoop of Fiber Boost.  The Fiber Boost helps you feel satiated, and it is gluten-free grain and vegan fiber source.  So 2 scoops of protein, with your base, fiber boost, a handful of greens (kale, spinach, or Arbonne’s Greens), and frozen berries or green apples.
    *Pre/Post WorkoutThis would be a protein shake.  You should definitely try 2 scoops of vanilla protein with one scoop of fiber boost, and then shake a little bit of cinnamon in it.  Talk about heaven!
  4. Herbal Detox Tea
    A cleansed body is a healthy body!  This tea has nine botanicals to help cleanse and rid your body of toxins.  I drink this a little bit before I go to bed.  It is caffeine-free.  It aids in the mobility of fiber and supports the kidney and liver function.  By cleansing and eliminating toxins, your body is able to to process foods correctly.
  5. 7 Day Cleanse
    Drink this on a Friday or Saturday.  You will dilute this with 1 liter of water (32oz) and drink it throughout the day.  (Be ready to use the bathroom a lot).  You’re drinking liquids/a lot of water..it’s almost like “breaking the seal,” haha.  Then you’ll drink an additional liter of water.  (See, just break the seal).Here is a little recipe if you like a dreamsicle! (:
    – 2 scoops of vanilla protein
    – 1/2 cup of unsweetened almond milk
    – 1/2 cup of water
    – 3 oz of orange juice concentrate
    – 1 tsp honey
    -ice
    Blend it all up until it’s smooth and enjoy!

Pina Colada Shake
– 1 cup of coconut milk
– 1/2 cup of fresh or canned pineapple
– 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder

If you want a healthy muffin recipe
– 4 scoops of vanilla or chocolate protein
– 1 tsp baking powder
– 1 tsp vanilla extract
– 1 egg
– 1/4 cup egg whites
– 1/4 unsweetened vanilla almond milk

Here’s how you can get 20% off of everything I just talked about above! (: Enjoy beauties and health nuts!

#Arbonne

If you haven’t heard of Arbonne, you definitely need to check it out!  I finally found a beauty line, I love and works!  Here are some products you need for Christmas/New Year! 🙂

1. Peppermint Foot Cream
I won this product at an Arbonne event, just the tube of lotion though.  It says what it’s supposed to do.  I mainly put it on the heels of my foot.  The  other round container is the foot scrub.  I don’t have it, but I will be purchasing soon!

2. Seasource Detox Spa
This is a green mud mask.  I use this once a week and it feels so good when you put it on.  Everyone needs a deep cleanser at least once a week.  Depending on how much I’m doing through out the week, I’ll use it in the middle of the week as well.  Especially if I’m putting on makeup often.  You can also use this face mask on your body.  You leave it on your face for 10 minutes, and if you use it for your arms or legs or other parts, then you leave it on for about 20-30 minutes.

3. Exfoliating Cell Scrub

This product I use once a week as well, especially during the winter time.  This and the next two skin care products I’ll be showing will be great if you have dry or very dry skin.  It gets all of the dead skin off of your face!

4. Smoothing Facial Cleanser
After using this and washing it off your face, your face feels SOOOO good and smooth!  It’s like you don’t even need moisturizer, but always moisturize!  I like to put some of this on my clarisonic, and it is foamy so it cleans your face pretty well.  Every morning, I will use this and this is now my new morning routine.

5. Day Cream with SPF 15
I always use a moisturizer with a SPF.  It is good to use a day cream that has a SPF just in case.  With this moisturizer, a lot goes a long way!  I only use one pump and it covers my face.  My face doesn’t get dry at all during the day.  It lasts all day!

6. Hair Mask
I use this after shampooing and I love the hair mask!  I leave it in my hair for a good 5 minutes and then wash it out.  After I wash it out, I’ll use my conditioner.  This hair mask repairs your ends and damaged hair.  There is another hair mask in a purple jar for colored hair or if you’ve colored your hair.  I have not tried it.  This mask is light weight and easy to wash out.  It leaves my hair light as well after it gets washed out.

7. Hair SerumThis is my HOLY GRAIL!  I have not found a better hair serum than this.  It goes on wet hair, dry hair, etc.  This is the best hair serum, ever!  I promise you, if this is the only product you get, this is the one!  It’s very light weight, smells really good, and it also works as a heat protectant.  I use it after I wash my hair, and I blow dry it…oh my goodness, makes my hair soft and shiny.  I put it on my ends when my hair was dry, and I instantly saw results in my hair.  You will never buy another hair serum again after trying this. <3

8. Tahitian Coconut Lip Scrub & Balm
Love this!  The scrub is very soft even though it’s a scrub.  Don’t eat it!  Haha, it smells delicious!  This gets dry skin off the lips and feels so good. Even the scrub is moisturizing.  I obviously use the lip balm after the scrub.  The balm lasts more than half the day for me.  I mean, it depends on how much you’re outside and how cold it is wherever you are living or traveling.  This is also one of my favorite products.

9. Hand scrub and Hand Creme

The hand scrub is the first picture and you actually get a lot.  It comes with the scoop too.  This stuff smells great and the scrub is also already moisturizing after you wash it.  Literally, escape dry winter hands with both of these products.  The hand creme is used after the scrub to enhance the outcome, of course.  I use this at least once every two weeks or so.  It feels great and the scent is refreshing.
