    Weight Loss Wednesday | 7.6.16

    Screen Shot 2016-07-06 at 3.38.14 PM

    I recently joined a gym with my boyfriend and was in need of some new sports bras. I didn’t want to spend too much money to I decided to check out Old Navy. They were having a sale that week so the store was a mess but I was able to get 2 sports bras at 20% off.

    I these fix so cute and are very comfortable. I wore one to the gym today and felt like it gave me good support. But if you are top heavy I wouldn’t recommend these for working out.

    I also wanted to share what I had for breakfast before I went to the gym. First thing I had was a Golden Kiwi, I picked them up at Costco. I heard it good to eat a kiwi on an empty stomach so I have been doing that. I will let you guys know how that goes.  Continue reading “Weight Loss Wednesday | 7.6.16” »

    Raspberry Peach Iced Tea Lemonade

    Screen Shot 2016-02-23 at 3.17.18 PM

    The beautiful weather this past weekend in NYC has had me thinking about summer. I can’t wait till the warm weather gets here so I can put away my coat and boots. But I know the summer will be here before I know it and all I can think about is summer dresses, sandals, going to the beach and of course going out to eat & drink. So I was thinking about a fun recipe that people of all ages could enjoy on a hot summer day. I thought of a Raspberry Peach Iced Lemonade, which you could totally make boozy if you like. I think they are refreshing flavors and I personally love half & half (iced tea and lemonade mixed). Below I have a  recipe for Raspberry Peach Iced Lemonade.

    Beauty & Health Benefits of Lemon

    lemons 1

    Lemons are a superfood and provide 51% of the body’s daily Vitamin C needs as well as thiamin, riboflavin, vitamin B-6, pantothenic acid, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, copper and manganese into your diet. It has low calories (29 cal /100gm) and almost no fat.

    1. Cleanses the body

    Lemon water has a powerful cleansing effect on your liver by strengthening enzyme functions. The liver is a central organ that aids your internal organs, digestive system, and circulatory system. Warm water with lemon flushes out the toxins in the body and detoxes one of the body’s most important organs.

    2. Better Skin Complexion

    Lemons contain powerful antioxidants and can help fight skin damage due to the sun or other pollutants. Since lemons contain a high concentration of Vitamin C, which is the main ingredient in the formation of collagen in the body, they are terrific for skin complexion and health.

    3. Aids in weight loss and controlling cravings

    Lemons will help you lose weight in a variety of ways. First off, pectin fibre present in lemon reduces hunger cravings and makes you feel full. .If you choose to use lemon water in the mornings (highly recommended), will help you feel fuller. Plus, the added effects on the body’s digestive system will help your metabolism work more efficiently and better utilize the nutrients you eat.

    10 Exfoliants That Don’t Contain Microbeads

     

    Screen Shot 2016-01-11 at 8.15.42 PM

     

    Say goodbye to your exfoliating body & face washes with plastic mircobeads…….for good reason. President Obama has signed into law the Microbead-Free Waters Act of 2015, which bans microbeads, a common ingredient in personal care products. The bill is intended to protect our nations waterways, because the plastic microbeads do not dissolve and are polluting our waters. In September, a study published in Environmental Science & Technology reported that more than 8 trillion microbeads were entering the country’s aquatic habitats daily.  Not only are they hard to clean up because they are about the size of a pinhead, they are also posing a threat to aquatic life since marine life mistake small plastic as food particles.

    Incase your favorite body or face wash contains the now banned plastic microbeads here are some great alternatives.

    Vaseline Spray and Go

    Surprisingly I really like this product since I was skeptical at how well it would work. The spray feature is quite convenient and I actually like it better than the traditional lotion pump. It absorbs quickly and isn’t greasy at all. It leaves my skin feeling soft and it smells good. I am looking forward to trying the coco butter formula. I would definitely recommend this product. So if you are skeptical like I was, don’t be hesitant to try this product. Continue reading “Influenster Sunshine Vox Box” »
