A New Journey: The Fast Metabolism Diet

I will be following The Fast Metabolism Diet for the next 28 days as part of a review with SheSpeaks.  So far I have really enjoyed the book, Hailey takes the time to explain how the foods we do or don’t eat effect our bodies functions and more importantly our metabolism. I am wary of diet books that make big claims or want you to restrict lots of food groups.  What I like about Haylie Pomroy’s book is how she focuses on real food that is easy and affordable. 

The 28 days is not a huge chunk of time and I am excited to see how well the program works. Today is my first day on it and so far the food options are great but giving up coffee has been a bear. I want to really follow the plan to the letter so I can give you my honest take on  how well it works. So no dairy, alcohol or caffeine for this girl for 28 days. I am interested to see how my body feels once I am well under way. I will keep you up to date on my journey, here’s to getting healthy and burning some fat before summer!

Review: L’Oreal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream

Review: L’Oreal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream
If you’re new to “BB Creams”, don’t let the name scare you it’s simply stands for an all-in-one “Beauty Balm” . A product that works as moisturizer and/or skin treatment, primer and foundation all in one tube. The trend of BB Creams started in Asia and over the last year have gained popularity in the US. 

This all-in-one beauty solution primes, corrects, hydrates and perfects, while resulting in a beautiful bare skinned look. The secret to L’Oreal’s Magic Skin Beautifier B.B. Cream Meet is the Beautifying Beads (see photo adove); encapsulated pigments infused in an ultra-light lotion with antioxidants Vitamins C&E. This multi-tasking skin beautifier delivers 4 beautifying actions in 1: hydrates, corrects, evens and perfects. Instantly transforms to your perfect shade for a flawless, bare skin finish. Over time, leaving you more beautiful skin.

With the L’Oreal Paris BB Cream I can  skip my normal facial moisturizer and my face feels hydrated all day. It leaves a nice matte, yet natural, look to the skin, without feeling heavy or looking cakey. The product goes on white, but as you blend the beads are broken and pigment is released creating your own perfect shade. The cream provided and natural evening out of my skin leaving it perfected but still natural looking. I  would put it in a  light-to-medium category,  but the formula is build able if you need a bit extra coverage.

Magic Skin Beautifier comes in four shades to match a multitude of skin colors. I use Medium, which suits my self- tan well. Choose from Fair, Light, Medium and Deep.

Elizabeth Arden Prevage Lash and Brow Enhancing Serum Review -Winner Annouced!

What is Elizabeth Arden Prevage?
Prevage Lash and brow enhancing serum is a clinically tested serum that has been proven to improve the length, thickness and fullness of lashes in 100% of women in only two weeks! And it’s also been clinically proven to provide a 40% improvement in the appearance, length, thickness and density of lashes in four weeks!

Prevage also treats lash and brow breakage, brittleness and loss due to aging, lack of nutrients and vitamins, and environmental threats. It is very gentle on your skin and eyes, yet still quite effective.

How do you use Elizabeth Arden Prevage lash and brow enhancing serum?
Prevage Lash and brow enhancing serum comes in a tube  similar to liquid eyeliner.  Apply at night before bed after removing your makeup.

Brush the serum across your eyelid like you are applying eye liner. You start from the inside and slide gently across the base of your eyelashes towards the outside of your eyes. Then repeat for the second eye. If you are looking to improve your eyebrows as well, you simply apply it where your eyebrows need attention.

Use Prevage Lash and Brow Serum every night until you are satisfied with your lashes. Once you have obtained your desired results, maintain the look by using the serum 3 to 4 times a week.

Does it work?
The clinical results in 100% of women who tried the serum found their lashes were thicker and longer!

My mom has been begging to try a lash enhancer so I let her be my guinea pig. She has lost both length and fullness in her lashes and was desperate for a little help. After using it for just under two weeks she said she can definitely see and improvement in the length and they are starting to appear more full. She has also noticed an improvement in the texture and said they are much softer. She said you can really tell how much they have improved with mascara on. Definitely a good buy if you are looking to enhance your lashes and brows.

Prevage lash and brown enhancing serum will be releasing into department stores nationwide and on the beginning of October. It will come in a .12 fl oz container and retail for $98.00.
