Creating the Perfect Curl, March 2012

This technique will create a really versatile style (as you can see below!) you can wear anywhere/anytime!

Hope you enjoy! Give me some time as I get more used to iMovie and time in front of the camera too 😉

I’m just thankful my hair hasn’t ended up like this yet!! YIKES!

Back to Basics: Skincare

I used to be the girl who used all of this when it came to my skincare routine…

In my head, “I was trying everything. Nothing worked….” Maybe because I also believed more scrubbing/exfoliation would lead to better skin.

Boy was I wrong! Finally, I thought, better try what I never had before… less effort. less extras. less scrubbing! (GASP!)

Let’s simplify…

These borings have changed my skin- for the better! Yes, I even use off brand!

Makes me wonder in what other areas I need to relax & get back to basics…

One product I know I have shared with you before is Ponds Cold Cream. It is amazing for makeup removal! Soft on the eyes & has an amazing smell! It is the 3rd product to round out my daily skin regimen and I don’t see that ever changing!

What keeps your skin in tip top shape?!

My Daily Makeup Routine, Feb 2012

The only difference from the video is that I have been using Clinique High Impact Waterproof in Black!

Keep an eye out~ I will be selling Mary Kay soon and you may find you want to add or replace part of your routine!

Jumpin’ on the HIIT train!

After class today, despite the TERRIBLE weather… (45 degrees felt like 20!) I felt a strange urge to hit the gym!

Once in a lifetime 😉 so I went with it telling myself I only had to stay 20 minutes! When I got there I had my body fat measured out of curiosity then I jumped on the elliptical to start some HIIT!

High Intensity Interval Training is the next hottest fitness trend behind Cross Fit. If you’ve been anywhere near Pinterest lately, you know that everyone’s been all over this trend!

HIIT definition from wikipedia: an enhanced form of interval training, an exercise strategy alternating periods of short intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods. HIIT is a form of cardiovascular exercise. Usual HIIT sessions may vary from 7–20 minutes. These short, intense workouts provide improved athletic capacity and condition, improved glucose metabolism, and improved fat burning

I created my own (combining elliptical and treadmill) for a hot and SUPER sweaty twenty minutes!

HIIT

Try it for yourself~ It leaves you feeling so alive!! I got my heart rate up to 188- goes to show how out of shape in shape I am. ha ha! This 20 minute workout burned a total of 201 calories for just 1.7 miles!

Now that my appetite is ready to roar, I’ve got tilapia in the oven!!
