Shocking Pink NOTD

  Shocking Pink
 NOTD China Glaze Shocking Pink, I used maybe 2-3 coats. I've never experienced as many problems with one nail polish before. This streaks very bad, and goes out uneven so its quite a hassle to use. The color is just so pretty I feel like it makes up for all the hard work and mess a little.

MAC Naturally Lipglass in Fresh Air

 There were four lipglasses and lipsticks in this collection, out of all 8 I only decided I liked one enough to purchase it. Fresh Air its just a light pink, and its gorgeous its formulation is amazing and one of the best I've used thus far. (and I have a lot of Lipglasses)

Revlon Photo Ready Airbrush

REVLON PHOTOREADY AIRBRUSH- Exclusive air-whipped formula with photochromatic pigments that bend and reflect light.

 I went to my local CVS to grab a few things when I saw a Revlon had some new things out. The main thing that caught my eye was this Revlon Photo Ready Airbrush Mousse Makeup it cost 13.99$ and you can find it at any drugstore. This is my first foundation/mousse/liquid foundation etc. that I have purchased in years. As soon as I bought it I swatched and I saw a light amount of shimmer to it so I was a bit worried, I purchased it in the color 020 SHELL. Today I used the mousse and I have to say its very light weight and the shimmer you can hardly noticed once applied and blended in, and has amazing coverage.

Lazy Sunday & Health

 It's just been one of those days where I just want to curl up and hide under my covers alll day long! That would be amazing, but Sundays are my extra cleaning, doing laundry and preparing for the week days.

Like preparing for any New Years Resolutions you haven't yet started like you thought you would? Well that would be me! I need to get back on my diet and workouts and I definitely need to detox & cleanse my system. xsparkage posted this picture of a recipe for this Slimming Soup it says that it has helped women lose more then 10 pounds after three days!!! WHAT?! I say thats "cray cray" lol is that even healthy or possible? hmm we shall see. She also says your only suppose to eat the soup twice a day BUT have a Protein filled breakfast.
Also I'm going to try the Master Cleanse for 10 ten days. 
Get back to my TurboFire

Goal: Be READY for Bikini Season. BEYOND READY!! :)
If anyone has "weight loss" as their goal you should definitely  try TurboFire or P90X 1 or 2. Also another great way to get all your recommended nutritents for the day, be healthy, detox your system without all the unwanted side effects and lose weight Shakeology is definitely something your going to want to check out. Beachbody will be releasing a NEW flavor in February Tropical :) and I'm so excited to try it! You can read more on Beach Body & Shakeology by clicking here!
