The most peaceful exercise: WALKING

Good Afternoon!  Today I want to share with you why I enjoy walking.  I am not talking about when I walk to the bus stop, or walk from the car to the house, but really walking.

There are a few workout routines I have designed for myself, but I find the most peace during my walks. ¬†Where I live there is a path to the church, I wanted to see exactly where the church was one day so I walked towards the area and noticed my new meditation space. ¬†It’s filled with trees, which makes it even more of an oasis.

I started out walking around 2x, most recently I added speed walking and running. ¬†I now walk around once, then speed walk, then run twice. ¬†In walking this path, all you hear and feel is nature, it’s a great way to meditate.

The troubles of the world literally seem miles away when this is your scenery. ¬†The deer have come out and peeked a bit, I admit it startled me, I thought the rustling was a squirrel. ¬†You never know what you may witness, but you’ll walk away more open to what nature has to offer!

Source energy of course has to beam it’s magnificence down on you…

So if I don’t feel it in me to do one of the routines I put together for a workout, I just lace up my sneakers, grab my water and go for a walk!

If you have trouble sleeping, go for a walk…feeling stressed, walk it out…need to close out the noise, go for a walk! ¬†Your heart will thank you…your energy level will increase…and so much more!!!

Black Radiance: Perfect Tone Matte Lip Creme

Welcome back!  This post is a review on the Black Radiance Lip Creme.

I first came across this product in Walmart. ¬†I saw the purple one and fell in love, but I talked myself out of buying it, even with a dollar off coupon on it! ¬†That wasn’t the last time though, I ended up buying the purple one maybe a week later. ¬†The purple is called Living In Violet

From the first swipe of this liquid lip fantasy, I knew I had to have more. ¬†The consistency is that of mousse, creamy, soft, then it drys matte almost instantly. ¬†When it drys it isn’t a skin cracking dry, it’s still smooth.

The same goes for the color in Go Nude

The application was perfect, creamy with a nice matte finish.  The colors look exactly the same from the bottle to the lips.  Now the one I had a problem with was the color Matte Bright

I was very confused with the application for this one, and it may have just been the bottle I purchased, I will be trying it again before making my final decision.  It was very messy, not a smooth application at all.  My lips looked dry and cracked after I applied this color.

I purchased the Go Nude and Matte Bright from Rite Aid for $3.99, they are the same price in Walmart and if you purchase from Black Radiance online.  The color payoff is worth much more than $3.99, the product last for hours after eating and drinking before needing to reapply, at least 3 hours.  To remove these lip cremes you need an oil based remover, I use coconut oil for everything. There are 9 more shades to choose from and the product is cruelty free!

Let me know below if you have tried this product and what your experience was, I would love to hear from you.  Thanks so much for reading!

Saturday’s Beauty Buys¬†

Good Morning!!!  Today I am going to share with you the beauty products I purchased this week.  These products are definitely ones that I suggest you purchase as well because they are awesome.

Wet N Wilds Kohl Eyeliner Pencil is my favorite drugstore eyeliner…

I have used a couple different pencils and this one by far is the best, it’s so smooth for a pencil and extremely pigmented. ¬†The cost isn’t bad either, you can find these for $.99 to $1.09 depending.

Now, I am not quite sure what has come over me this year but I now love glitter and anything sparkly. ¬†I love it so much that I started going with the hashtag #sparklenshine. ¬†I own maybe two polishes that are glitter polishes and wanted more. ¬†I picked up this one from Wet N Wild for just $.99. ¬†With the work that I do in retail it is very hard to keep a decent manicure, but I have noticed when I use glitter polish you don’t really notice when it chips.

Told you I love me some glitter now! ¬†I picked up this glitter for the eyes. ¬†The color is Groupie and it’s from the Wet N Wild Coloricon collection. ¬†I have added this to the collection….

Now I have them all…I love this product because it isn’t a powdered type glitter where you will have glitter everywhere. ¬†This product is sticky which is a perfect consistency for application. ¬†I used to use eyeliner pencil all over the area I wanted to apply glitter, it helped it to stick, now I can just apply as is! ¬†Here is a look using the gold glitter…

Lastly, a few weeks ago I picked up this Black Radiance Lip Creme and fell in love!

Now for those who truly know me know that I love me a purple lippie, so I had to have this for that reason alone. ¬†I then used the product and was amazed at the pigmentation. ¬†It goes on as a creme and drys matte, not a dry cracking matte either. ¬†I said I would purchase more and I did, two more actually…


We have Go Nude and Matte Bright, I believe I will be wearing Matte Bright tonight with my makeup look so be sure to follow me on Instagram so you don’t miss the pictures! ¬†Oh, and these lippies are $3.99 ūüėĪ great price for the product.

I’ll Drink To That!

There are many routines that I have with the lifestyle that I live and am continuously creating for myself.  This healthy lifestyle journey is one that I am truly passionate about so I am very mindful of the things that my body consumes, I am by no means a saint, I do have my moments but the good outweighs the bad with me.

There are 3 things I drink almost every single day and I will be sharing them with you today and why.

Lemon Water

I will not tell you that I drink this first thing in the morning when I awake, but it is the first thing I drink in my day.

As most of you know I am a big Fiji water drinker, but I found that I do not enjoy the taste of it with lemon, so I use purified water in this instance.  Any brand of purified water will do, just make sure you add lemon.  Drinking lemon water in the morning, at least 30 minutes before eating, helps to aide with digestion.  There is vitamin C in lemons and as we all know vitamin c is needed for a healthy immune system.  Lemon water helps to flush out your system, and you will notice a boost in energy when lemon water is consumed.

Peppermint Tea & Ginger

First let me share that that the cup you see in this photo is the ONLY cup I drink my tea out of. ¬†It was my grandmothers coffee cup, she drank out of it every morning. ¬†When she passed I keep many things of hers and this was one of them, it’s like I have her with me constantly.

Peppermint tea has similar benefits as lemon water, as in, aiding in digestion…weight loss…and boosts the immune system. ¬†There are many other benefits such as peppermint being a stimulant for relaxation. ¬†Have a fever? Try peppermint tea, the mentol can cause external sweating while cooling the body inside at the same time. ¬†Nausea, bad breath, stress reducer, all the things peppermint tea can help you with.

I add ginger to my tea, and it tastes absolutely amazing. ¬†Ginger is a medicinal root and has anti inflammatory properties. ¬†There have been studies in many areas, with that, ginger may lower cholesterol levels and could possibly improve the function of the brain. ¬†There is an active ingredient in ginger that can assist in helping to fight infections, so if you’re sick then peppermint tea and ginger are the way to go.

Fiji

I call this water “life in a bottle”, I love it!

Fiji is an alkaline water, with a PH of 7.7, when looking for an alkaline water you it should have a PH of 7 or higher.  Fiji water just touches the surface of alkalinity, but taste so amazing.  I drink this water all day long, and spend about $15 a week on this water, can we say loyal?

These are the things I make sure to drink every single day to help to have a healthier me. ¬†What are some things you drink every day and why? ¬†Leave me comments and thanks so much for reading ūüíč.

Facial Wipes…Yes or No?

There are a few different ways to remove your makeup at night, you can simply wash your face with a cleansing bar which probably won’t leave your face as clean as you’d like…there will be makeup left deep down in your pores and if you aren’t scrubbing/exfoliating, or masking once a week, you are doing your skin a huge disservice.

Many have taken the route of facial wipes, makeup remover wipes, even baby wipes.

Wipes have made removing makeup a breeze, too tired to wash your face? Just grab a wipe a voila, makeup gone.  There are so many options out now, seems like every makeup brand has wipes or makeup removers.  Are these products beneficial or are they doing more damage?

My experience with facial wipes/makeup remover wipes has been a frustrating one because I was looking for an easy route to remove product from my face. ¬†I’ve tried them all it seems, ¬†and every single brand I’ve tried has done the same, make it burn around my eye area. ¬†Have you had that feeling before? ¬†If so, did you ever try to figure out why? ¬†Well I did and that’s why I am here.

I figured it had to be the citric acid, a very common factor in all wipes and the word acid just doesn’t sound good. ¬†Let’s discuss citric acid in makeup wipes…in food is a totally different story!

Citric acid in wipes…they pretty much somehow pull all types of salt from the organic acid and it goes into the wipes for several reasons, mainly to adjust the acid/base balance. ¬†For specific purposes of the salts, check out http://www.cosmeticinfo.org/ingredient/citric-acid

Mostly the stuff you are unable to pronounce are salts from citric acid, then some wipes will have alcohol in them which combined with those salts seems very dehydrating for the face.

It is known that the first 5 ingredients listed are the ingredients said product contains the most. ¬†If you read some labels, alcohol will be within the first 5 ingredients. ¬†Even the soothing wipes that have aloe, cucumbers, green tea…all of them irritate my skin.

There are other great options to removing makeup such as steam, milk, actual cucumbers and of course coconut oil. ¬†I am sure there has to be a wipe brand out there that doesn’t contain citric acid, if you know of any let me know in the comments. ¬†Try another safer, healthier method of removing makeup and don’t forget to wash with a cleanser after!

Love Your Vag!!!

Good morning!¬† Hey…question for you…have you ever experienced a very unwelcoming bacteria infection in your lady parts?¬† Come on…we can be honest!¬† Or a yeast infection for that matter…

Bacterial infections in the vagina are in short, caused from an imbalance of good & bad bacteria.  Yeast infections are caused when there are too many yeast cells forming in the vagina.

To keep your ph balance normal there are a few things you can do:

1. DO NOT USE SOAP TO CLEAN YOUR VAGINA!!!  All of these soaps have any different ingredients that your body may consider foreign, so whether you know it or not a change is occurring daily down there.

2. EAT CLEAN!!!
Truth of the matter is “you are what you eat”

3. TRY SILK Dairy Free Yogurt
The main thing you want to focus on when eating yogurt is the Probiotics.¬† Probiotics are “live bacteria and yeasts, good for your health and digestive system”

When my doctor told me I needed to start eating yogurt I was unsure of what to do because I don’t use milk.¬† One day I was grocery shopping and came across

image

This yogurt is ideal for a couple of people, especially vegetarians.  Silk is a plant based company, with Soy being the main focus when the company was started.  They have since added on Almond milk, Coconut milk, and Cashew milk.

image

In the ingredients you can read that the yogurt contains live and active cultures which is what your vagina needs if the ph is off.

The taste of the yogurt is so good, you would never know it is dairy free.

image

Along with being vegetarian, this yogurt is gluten free and contains 6g of plant based protein.

Having a balanced ph in your vagina is the goal, and if you are anything like me you avoid medications and look for alternatives.

I hope this information has been helpful, and as always I thank you all for reading!  You are AWESOME
