    Workout Wednesday: Tips To Make Your Workday More Active

    Staying active during the workday can be a challenge for people who sit at a desk all day. This is especially true on days when you are so busy it feels like there’s rarely an opportunity to look away from your computer, much less get up and move around. Luckily, there are many ways to stay active in the office, even if you can’t manage to leave your desk. The tips listed below are easy to incorporate into your workday so you can stay as active as possible… SUBTLY BOOST YOUR BURN Add extra resistance to your movement, turning that quick walk from your desk to your printer into an…

    Makeup Monday: The Best Drugstore Makeup with SPF To Layer For Sun Protection

    No matter the season or the weather, SPF is a step in your beauty routine you don’t ever want to skip! SPF ensures you are protecting your skin against sun damage as well as preventing signs of aging that is accelerated by sun exposure. So, there are two things you have to keep in mind: the “sufficient” amount of SPF for the face and neck is 1/2 teaspoon, and SPF needs to be reapplied throughout the day to stay effective. So where does that leave us makeup-wearers? I typically get the biggest dose of protection in my face moisturizer with SPF, but I do like to use makeup with SPF…

    Which Is Better Wednesday: Walmart’s Equate Beauty Brand vs. Brand Name Beauty Products

    Happy Wednesday everyone! I have been comparing some brand name beauty products that I purchase regularly and love with Walmart’s Equate Beauty brand. Some of Walmart’s beauty brands were okay and some I have switched to because they are just as good the brand name beauty product, so let’s get into the comparisons starting with skin care: CeraVe Hydrating Facial Cleanser $12.08 for 12 oz. – I love this cleanser and I have been using this for years. This is great for my dry, sensitive skin and leaves my skin soft after cleansing (Not the best makeup remover, so if I am wearing makeup, this is my second cleanse). Equate…

    Makeup Monday: My Fast & Affordable Minimal Makeup Routine (Summer Edition)

    There are days when we don’t have time to put on a full face of makeup, or we just don’t feel like putting on a full face especially during the hot, humid summer months. We have all been there, so I have updated my minimal summer makeup routine (which hasn’t really changed except for a few new products I am currently using). I still add some definition to the focal points of my face, but it’s as close to a no-makeup makeup look I can get while still feeling and looking put together. My current summer makeup routine consists of four steps but makes a big difference. You can recreate…

    Weight Loss Wednesday: Weight Loss Tips for Busy People

    We have all done this at some point in our lives; you swear that tomorrow you will have time to pack a nutritious lunch before leaving for work, but that tomorrow rarely comes. You are convinced you will get to the gym on your lunch hour or do a workout video at night after the kids go to bed and that happens close to never. Your intentions are always good, but sometimes your busy life gets in the way of your weight loss plans, but don’t give up! You can still eat healthy and squeeze in some exercise, even on the craziest days. So, here are some ways busy people…

    Motivational Monday: Tips To Help You Manage Stress, Minor Anxiety & Mild Depression

    I think it’s safe to say that we are definitely living in uncertain times. From the increasing cost of food to high gas prices and cost increases everywhere in-between and many of us are not only feeling the pinch (no matter how we try to make ends meet), but we are also feeling more stressed, anxious, or depressed as each day passes which can make you feel unproductive, unmotivated, or lost. Now with all of that being said, I think it is very important that we take care of our mental health (just like taking care of our physical health is very important too), so I have come up with…

    Weight Loss Wednesday: Things To Do At Lunch For Better Weight Loss Results

    Lunch. It’s such a simple word, and yet it has so much potential to totally sabotage your healthy eating plan. That’s because at lunch time, it’s easy and oh-so-tempting to grab a quick bite at the local fast food or pizza joint or worse, eat at your desk from the vending machine. Don’t lose your momentum and resolve at mid-day. Here are some ways to make the most of your mid-day meal: Make Sure Lunch Isn’t Your First Meal Of The Day People on the National Weight Loss Registry (people who have lost at least 30 pounds and kept it off for more than a year) have a number of…

    Makeup Monday: Makeup 101: Lipsticks

    Well, this is the last installment of my “Makeup 101” series. In my last post I talked about mascara, which one is right for you and now we are down to the last part of makeup and that is the lips, and, in this post, I break it down so you can find the right formulations and shades that are best for you, so let’s get into it… Finding The Best Lipstick For Your Skin Tone Unfortunately not all shades complement every skin tone. Red lipstick alone has such a wide variety and complexions vary just as much as lipstick shades, so, if you can, my advice is to always…
