Beauty Tips!

Elevate your feet while resting. This will help improve circulation is your legs as well as lower the risk of unsightly veins. 

Shave at the end of your shower. The steam throughout your shower will soften the hairs leaving you with smoother results. These are my hands down ABSOLUTE FAVORITE razors! A staple in my shaving routine! I have tried many others and I always go back to them. I don't always used shaving cream but when I do I use this organic one. Also a tip for after shaving, don't apply your lotion or cream immediately after as it may cause a rash or a burning irritation. I usually wait about 15 minutes to let the follicles close up. This is my all time favorite body lotion that is just drool worthy, ahhh it's so luxurious!! It's definitely a higher priced lotion but if you're looking for something spa-like to splurge on, I recommend this. Treat yo-self! ;)

Treat your Hands the same way you treat your face. Anything you apply on your face for brightening, anti-aging, dark-spots, etc., your hands will also appreciate. Our hand show many signs of aging the older we get because we often neglect them. It's never to late to start!

What's on my Grocery List?

Hi guys!! This post is a little different from the rest but I've had multiple people ask me about this so I thought it would be fun to share. Now, I'm not Vegan nor am I a Vegetarian but I do eat very little meat. The meat you see on this list is for my fiancé who is a professional athlete and meat is a necessity in his diet to be able to train at the levels he trains at (according to his race doctors so don't bash me). 




Note: Everything I get is Organic*

Kale
Spinach 
Arugula 
Beets
Cucumbers 
Avocados 
Tomatoes 
Asparagus
Broccoli
Green Beans
Peppers
Turmeric Root
Carrots 
Corn 
Oranges 
Pineapple 
Bananas 
Apples
Blueberries 
Raspberries 
Blackberries 
Sweet Potatoes 
Beans 
Salmon
Chicken
Beef
Liver
Bacon 
Egg Whites
Eggs 
Milk
Cheese
Dressing for Salads 
Hummus
Dark Chocolate Cashews 
Nut Mix 
Cayenne Pepper

Whew! Seems like a ton of food…because it is. But when you live with an athlete and hardly ever eat out, this is our list and we have to re-stock every week (the meat we can buy in bulk and freeze). 


Feel free to print this out (or write it down) to take with you the next time you go shopping. That helps me a ton!

This is my standard list that sometimes changes if we don't need to get something that we may have leftovers of or if theres something different that we need to add. 

Also! Here's a code to a company I recently started using here in Florida who has Shoppers personally shop for me and deliver my groceries to my kitchen! Best thing ever right?! Check to see if they're in your area and Use my Code to get $10 off of your first order!!

Empties!

Why does it feel so good to finish products?! I just love it.



MUN Anarose Hydrating Rose Toner - I am completely obsessed with mist toners during the warmer months and this product is heavenly! Rose toners are my go-to. This toner removes dead skin cells, instantly smooths and firms your skin, helps fight acne and provides long-lasting hydration and long-term anti-aging properties. It is rose water based containing antioxidant anti-inflammatory properties to rejuvenate your skin and balance your pH level. Droooling.  

Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask - Okay, if you're looking for an extremely hydrating, overnight mask product, look no further. Lately, I've been adamant about applying (and re-applying) product to my neck because no one wants a gross looking neck. This is what I've been using. Every single night. It is just so luxurious and does not irritate my skin whatsoever. I absolutely love this stuff! It also smells delish. When I apply it to both my face and neck I wake up with the most amazing glow and just the softest skin EVER. Check out some other reviews for yourself HERE on Sephora. This is an absolute staple in my beauty routine. This product comes in three different sizes so if you're not ready to commit, try out the smaller size! I'm tellin' you boo, getchyaself some. 

BIODARA Immortale Mist - Another mist!! Told ya, I'm obsessed!! I seriously just spray. all. day. This beauty is crafted from organic and wild-crafted plants and oils while hydrating and healing the skin to its natural radiance. Gloooowwwinnggg!! Yaayuhh.

Genuine Glow Clarifying Toner - You guessed it. Another toner... BUT this one is one that I use by applying the product to a cotton ball. This is also super refreshing and smells delightful. I love that this product also removes all of the extra yuck left on my face leaving it feeling super clean. Genuine Glow Skincare is a cute natural skincare company that I found on Instagram and I've been loving their products. Check them out!

What's in my Beach Bag?!

I'm very fortunate to live in the beautiful town of Panama City Beach, where my neighborhood has its own private beach. With that being said, I am at the beach or on a boat...a LOT. So, I thought it would be fun to show you guys what I keep in my beach bag! Heads up, my friends gave me the nickname Mary Poppins because I literally always have so much stuff in all of my bags. My fiancé jokes when traveling that I would be everyone best friend if the plane went down and we were stranded on an island because with what I carry in my purse alone we could survive a whole year -HA!

Colorscience Sunforgettable Loose Mineral Powder SPF 50 is one of my absolute FAVORITE beauty/health products this summer! I bring this EVERYWHERE! It has amazing flawless coverage as well as 50 SPF which is simply a must for keeping my skin protected. LOVE this product and would recommend it to everyone! 

Raw Elements has amazing ALL natural sunscreen products that I just adore! You can check out their website here for more amazing natural sun care products. 

Erbaviva Suncreen SPF 30 is another favorite! This sunscreen is safe for both children and adults. It contains zinc oxide, aloe, camomile, sunflower oil, lavender, olive oil, and castor oil for sun protection. The smell is also divine! If you haven't tried this product out yet, I highly recommend you do!!

I also have many other things in my beach bag that simple couldn't all fit in the photo frame so I'll list them below ;)


Beach Bag Must Haves:
Water (most important)
Sunscreen (DUH- this is huge)
Towel
First aid bag (you'd be surprised how many people this has helped)
Change of clothes/Coverup  
Make-up bag
Wallet & Keys
Snacks
Deodorant & Perfume
Phone
Brush
Mint/Gum
Flashlight

Beauty Tips

Hair - Change up your part to reduce thinning. You probably notice when you change up where you regularly part your hair, your new hairdo looks more voluminous ->because it is! Sometimes it's difficult to get it to stay there but you will soon notice a great difference while allowing your previously parted area to fill back in. Try it!

Eyes - De-puff eyes by applying a cold compress (ice cube under a cloth). 15 seconds on 15 seconds off.

Application - Always use your ring-finger when needing the lightest applicator. For example, I always use my ring-finger to apply undereye cream as the area is very delicate. This technique also applies to concealer under the eye area. 

Dark Circles - Are you someone that suffers from dark circles under your eyes? Try skipping the lower lash mascara as it tends to cast a shadow making that area only appear darker. 

Lips - To help lipliner glide on more seamlessly, pinch it with your finger tips to warm it up before applying. 

Final Look - When you're done applying your makeup, make as many facial expressions in the mirror as you may make throughout your day or evening to make sure your makeup (especially your lipstick) looks great in all forms ;).

Perfume - As well as your normal application areas -> Spritz ankles and behind knees - scent rises!

Empties!!

I feel like its been a while since I've done an Empties blog post! And as most of you know, it's one of my favorite things to do so, YAY!


(click to enlarge) 




Juice Beauty Steam Cellular Anti-Wrinkle Moisturizer - Ok, this one is hard because I'm a ride or die Juice Beauty chick but this just didn't do it for me. It was too heavy and greasy on my sink. Maybe during the winter months this could be good but right now in humid, Florida it just didn't work out. (Love you, Juice Beauty!!)

Real-U Moisturizer & Face Gel - These products didn't do anything for me. The moisturizer left a sticky-like film on my skin that was just unpleasant. To be honest, neither of these are completely empty but I just couldn't keep using them so they're going in the trash. 

Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel Full Strength - Now, this peel WORKS. Let me tell you, the redness that you will see surface is the real deal. My fiancé saw me shortly after applying this mask one time and said, "I think you're having an allergic reaction to something" because my face was bright red- HAHA! This is one of those products that you use and are shocked that it's an "at home" product vs a medical spa product. It's that good. This peel is great for fine lines, hyper-pigmenation and simply making your skin look better all around. Love this stuff.

Kuumba Made Foot Butter - I really enjoyed this foot balm. I've spoken about how much I love this company and all of their amazing natural products before- you guys need to check them out! I will say though, when it comes to a "foot balm", they all seem to work the same for me. Put a good butter or balm on your feet followed by a pair of socks and wake up with super soft feetsies ;)
