smoothie's , yoga, random facts

I do yoga on a daily basis. I believe it's important to stay healthy and work your body out to look and feel your best. Before my run the the other day I went into Dick's Sporting and saw this yoga matt! I fell in love with it and had to get it. I got it on sale for $50.00 USD How can you walk away from pink?!

1 large strawberries
1 banana
1 cup of soy milk
1 kiwi slice (optional)

Just blend all ingredients till smoothy texture is formed and all fruits well blended.

*if you want a smoothie that will be extra smoothie just add a tad bit of yogurt :)

FACTS: Fresh fruit/veggie smoothie's will....

- Save you money and time

- Ensure you are properly hydrated at the beginning of the day

- Provide you with the full spectrum of nature's bioavailable vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants
- Give you plenty of natural fiber to ensure excellent digestion

- Provide you with the scientifically proven best "brain fuel" in the form of fructose

- Help empower your immune system to protect you from illness

The bottom line, the best way to get nutrition is from food, and by consuming a healthful smoothie every day you are getting most of your nutrition in one proven delicious dosage.

Did you know?! Raw juices and smoothies drunk on an empty stomach are absorbed into bloodstream within 15 minutes.

Spread: Better Than Your Dreams

Pulled By: RenayShanel

Today I had a lot of running around to do. The baby shower for my sister is on Saturday and I had to go get everything for it !! (Last Minute as always hehe)
I wore something fairly close to the image above. Tonight the temp dropped and the coat was added however for a summer day just a tank is best I think. I was checking my e post and saw a banner for Gomez and was about to post this straight after. Her makeup goes along swell with this. I will be posting a few photographs from the party in a few days. Hope everyone has the best of times this weekend !! Have fun & be safe :)

Sidenote: I know the flower is random in my pull today...
I ran into a photograph of the roses a friend got me and they put me in a good mood all day. I thought i'd add them in there, as the thought was around me today. (Photograph below)

E.L.F Studio Undereye Concealer & Highlighter Review

Peice: SEK 42.70 .se
Price: £3.50 .uk
Price: 3.00 USD .com

I have been using this product since last year. I stepped away from the 40.00 highlighter for a moment to try this out and I was very pleased. The concealer covers up my dark circles well. I have them fairly bad on a daily and it works wonders. I seal it with a light powder swipe to lock it in so it does not crease. The highlighter part works well also. I apply it to the outer ends of my eyes once my shadow is on and it brightens. The formula blends easily and is not at all sticky. It's hard to find a formula that is not oily or sticky. This is an "ok" highlighter. It's nice having the 2 in 1. It does have a slight smell if you smell it close to your nose however when applying and after applied you cant tell at all.

- Smooth nars like packaging
- Smooth easy to blend formulation
- lasts all day
- little goes a long way
- 5grams (each) lots of product for price
- covers my dark circles well
- Highlighter brightens and helps me look very much awake
- Creamy texture

- Does not seem to seatle in fine lines
- Highlighter is not matte has a bit of faint particals of sparkle in it
- sheer formulation does not conceal blemishes hence the "under eye" part of the product name (fine by me just saw others complaine on youtube videos so thought id add that tad bit in.)

Use the “conceal” side under the eye area to disguise under eye
bags and help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, dark circles and
puffiness while helping the skin around the eyes look firmer and
rejuvenated. The “highlight” cream gives eyes an instant
brightening boost with light-reflecting pigments that work like
an instant eye lift (can also be used as an eyeshadow base).
Dot the formula and blend in under, around and on top of the eye
as needed for a youthful glow.

3 colors

- Does need to be set with a powder to prevent creasing
-Under eye skin needed to be treated a bit different then the rest of your face, make sure you pat the product on don't smudge it!

Will I buy this product again you ask?! ...YES, I already have a backup :)

Dormar Clutch

I did a bit of shopping today and found this stunning vintage evening bag in a creamy pink satin with iridescent white & caramel beading.I saw it and instantly loved it. The detail on it is so gorgeous and the colors are divine. I don't even want to use it. I'm afraid I might tarnish its beauty.

I'm doing a bit of research on the bag and found others like it. Does anyone know anything about the company?! I'll update this post tonight if I find anything amazing out :) x

Dinner: Kiwi, Mango, Strawberries

...on a daily

I am a fruit junkie!(Vegan) When it comes to the way I eat I pick carefully. I enjoy all fruits and Veggies and find them simply delicious! Today on my plate I have Mango, strawberries, & Kiwi! Not only are they good in taste they help your body in more ways then you know. Fruit is known to help you in a number of ways depending on what types you eat. Right now lets just say I'm not only fighting cravings and hunger :)Fruit is beneficial to your skin and appearance! I mean after all this is a beauty blog and I feel the need to re inform you of these miracle workers !!

If you really want a long list just google the benefits, you would be amazed!
Anyways I've been doing a bit of thinking today, would you guys be interested in videos and blogs about "in the day of..." or would that be rather boring? I mean my life is not super exciting but I enjoy topics of such and find the ramblings nice. What do you think!?

Before you reach for a bottle why not grab a plate?!"-I love fruits.. I grab a Naked Juice or Odwalla because well I don't always have time to sit down and eat a meal. Of coarse you should never gulp down the entire bottle. I always buy the BIG jugs and pour half a glass. Ive actually tweeted about it before. The half of glass fills me up and gives me what I need. Love them! :) Nothing beats fresh fruit though :D"

I ran into this site from searching through blogs! OMG I saw the images and instantly fell head over heels in love. Darling detail to each pop is made & the most amazing array of color is selected ! I can't wait to place an order :)

Creativity in items is what makes them unique. These "pops" definitely hold that quality in the best way!

I love them... yes blog family... I'm definitely in love.

In case you have not left my blog yet to hunt these little beauty's down..
I'll have you know I have linked the website at the very end along with the blog and twitter :)The company is based out of London (UK) so great for you if you live there but you can order them as well online www.popbakery.co.uk

Ive been sort of busy lately with the trip coming up moving and trying to sort through some other daily life bits and I hope to get a review and my own pictures of the POPS to you guys soon !!

O' my I just thought of how hard it's going to be to not buy up all of the pops! There are so many to choose from ! I fancy i'll be in a bit of a sticky when it comes to picking only a few :)

WEBSITE SAYS: POP Bakery is the home of the english cake POP. In case you haven’t tried these delectable items, cake POPs are indulgent little chocolate cakes on sticks, which are as scrummy as they are cute! Having worked in chocolate and baking I decided to combine the two and focus all my efforts on these delicious treats. Each little delight is designed and hand-crafted by me, forming a truly unique gift or an innovative party display. We have found the scope for creativity endless and hope you enjoy this website showing the latest from POP Bakery.

How To: Face Toner

*Someone recently asked me how to apply toner so I thought id make an entire post to answer the question for maybe others that are unsure as well. I think it is a very important step in the skin care process and everyone should know how.

How to apply facial toner properly
Step 1 Wash your face
Splash your face with warm water and make sure your hands are clean. Apply the cleanser to your face with circular motions. Make sure you cover all the areas forehead, chin, nose, cheeks and neck then rinse with lukewarm water.

Step 2 Apply the facial toner
A toner should always be applied to a cleansed face.

Toner can be applied with a cotton pad,clean hands or by spraying on.The most common way is with a cosmetic pad or cotton ball. Saturate the cotton pad and pat the toner gently over your face and neck area. Apply it to the forehead, cheeks, chin and nose, or to the whole face. Never rub your skin when applying toner.

Step 3 Apply moisturizer
After applying facial toner your skin may feel a little tight and dry and that's why you need to apply a facial moisturizer after toning your skin.

What are the benefits of using facial toners?!

Remove dirt and makeup residue

Complement the cleansing process

Refine pores and tighten pores temporarily

Make skin feel fresh and clean

Remove excess oil from the skin

Refresh tired complexion

Whisk away impurities

Reduce the appearance of fine lines

Helps set my makeup

Increase blood circulation

Restore your skin's natural pH balance

Helps to blend my makeup

Improve skin tone

Helps moisturizer seal in the hydration

Reduce oil secretion

Helps to soothe irritated skin

Improve the elimination of toxins

Speed up cell turnover

Promote sloughing of dead skin cells

REMEMBER: If you have areas of the skin that are badly broken out, you want to dab those areas last, so you don’t transfer bacteria from one part of the skin to the other, which may possibly result in more breakouts

FOTD 06.09.10

So this is my first post for a "Face Of The Day" I know this picture is not good quality it was taken with my blackberry. I will be using my good cam next time :)

M.A.C Paint Pot in Rubenesque

Mascara Lancome Cils Design Pro

Smashbox Lipgloss Caption
M.A.C Lipstick Bombshell

I thought id make this duo my first FOTD because well ive had it for some time and never wanted to use it because it is so pretty !! Finally I said why not?! :)

I'm not sure if you ladies like these kind of posts?! I enjoy them I think they let me know of new products and well they seem to inspire me a bit when it comes to a new look. Hope everyone has a wonderful Friday...

Good day to you !!
