Black Friday Sales from Beachbody!

Getting off the track is common during the holiday season! But now you can stay dedicated to your fitness goals by working out at home. Sign up for a free account here so you have access, then head into the shop and you will see all the discounted items!  Beachbody discounted P90x, TurboFire, and Insanity! By the way did you know P90X3 is being released in 10 days?!

Turbofire is one of my favorite workouts! You’ll be dancing and kickboxing in your living room but feeling like you’re at a fun party! The high-energy music mixes are really awesome and Charlene is such a fun instructor! She has you do these fun drills where you work as hard as you can for one minute so you actually shed more calories during the HIIT drills!
I got myself the jumpmat, something I've been meaning to get for a long time. It's to do my standing exercises on so that I have some cushioning for my meet to prevent injury on my wood floor. Unfortunately E&E is already sold out, it's one of our most popular products!



If you're looking for an alternative to botox and microdermabrasion, checkout Derm Exclusive. It's a breakthrough skincare system designed by Beverly Hills plastic surgeron Dr. Andrew Ordon, host of the TV show The Doctors. It's created with the highest-quality, most powerful ingredients to reverse the sign of aging.  Derm Exclusive contains no harmful ingredients and was never tested on animals. The Collagen Lift Moisturizer has Encapsulated Retinol which helps increase skin's natural cell turnover and promotes collagen production.

I bought this for myself because my esthetician said I needed a high quality retinol product to reduce acne by altering the oil chemistry of my skin. My skin is pretty clear but I do get the occasional breakout. Now that the weather has hit the 30s I'm officially calling it winter. With that comes indoor heat and outdoor cold and wind that dries out my skin. You can hide your body with sweaters and layers but your face has to look flawless all of the time. This time of year you especially want to give yourself a nourishing face cream to have glowing, gorgeous skin all winter long! If you're looking to look fresh and younger, I suggest you give Derm Exclusive a try and right now you're getting even more value for your money!

Style Trend: Military Camouflage

Camo print seems to always be coming back into style. Check out this collage I complied of Rhianna  over the years. I wasn't a fan of the onesie (first pic) though. lol Did you see her hair style at the American Music Awards on Sunday? Here's the reaction to it.


I've found so many stores have camo print in their fall line right now! But I think the trend is different this year because I've noticed people are styling it more chic. I just bought myself a pair of camo leggings that I'm going to style with these red pumps!

Re-designing my shoe closet

I love shoes and love organization. Here's what my coat closet looks like now. I removed the coats to show you what the back of the closet looks like. I feel like I'm always searching for shoes because I can't really "see" them. Plus I don't have space for my summer shoes, full sneaker collection, my boots are hidden, and I have more shoes still in boxes in my other closet. So I'm going to put up shelves to showcase my shoe collection. I had someone come in yesterday to take measurements and I'm hoping it will be done in the next week or two!

Before I have the shelves installed I'm trying to decide what color to paint the wall. What do you think?
I should mention that I decorate for me and no one else, don't care about the resale value because I can always paint over it, after all it's just paint. I choose things I like that make me happy. Although it may seem like a waste of time to most to paint a closet, it is something I see at least twice a day, and it will brighten my day to pull my shoes out of this closet. So be part of my selection process! What color should I paint my closet?


Would you consider making such a bold statement with your closet painting it pink? To sway the votes lol ....

























The other option is wallpaper, but I'm not sure you'd even see it in such a small space? But I love me some damask pattern!

Powdered Peanut Butter


Previously I posted about PB2, well today I'm going talk about another brand - Betty Lou's Just Great Stuff Organic Powdered Peanut Butter. Have you tried this yet? I've been putting it into my protein shakes. It's peanut butter without the fat! It only has 45 calories and 2g of sugar per serving. You can also put it on your toast if you mix it with water. I used to only be able to buy this online but a new grocery store opened up near me and they sell it for $8 (PB2 is only $4).  But Just Great Stuff has cleaner ingredients than PB2 that's why I made the switch. However I do prefer the chocolate flavor of PB2 over Just Great Stuff because Just Great Stuff has a more bitter chocolate taste with sea salt. It's a great for a post workout snack! You can also use it when you make Shakeology Balls.

Pajamas

Here's my winter wishlist. The majority of my pajamas are from Victoria Secret, many I bought in high school that are still on the rotation schedule. They're good quality, pretty fabrics and last a long time. Did you know that the word Pajama, originates from two Persian words - pāy (leg) + jāma (garment)?

Target finds and the White Blazer

I don't get out to the movies much, I pretty much catch everything on netflix. But when my friend H invites me out to the movies, it's always her pick and it always ends up being a great choice. We saw the movie About Time  which is a British romantic comedy about a family of time travelers. You must see it!


In one scene a woman was wearing a white blazer that I just looked brilliant! So I just bought my first white blazer which is a wardrobe piece I've been wanting for awhile for work but never thought it could be worn at night too. But after googling celebs in white blazers to get an idea on how to style it I saw it's quite a popular look! It can be paired with jeans, black leggings, or a nice dress. Then I checked out Target and saw that they have some really nice pieces perfect for holiday parties coming up!
