My Favie Sweet Treats: Part One

Here's the thing, I am constantly trying to find ways to tweak my fave desserts and of course create more easy treats to satisfy that sweet tooth of mine

I think the key with anything is moderation

I still eat the sweets I'm not technically supposed to, but just in moderation, not every day

So some of these recipes you have seen before [ I will link to the page ]

Some are just things I've thrown together. This will be a short post but I will continue to make new recipes to post

Mm k?

You all have seen this one before
Its a super easy way to get a sweet chocolate treat without all the fatty sickieness of pre packaged hot choc ICK!

2. Organic Strawbs and Whipped Cream
If you've never made this before............. I'm sorry

Its so damn good!!!

And how simple is it??? Anyone can pull this off

All you need is a clear portion controlled bowl, a handful of chopped strawberries, and some organic whipped cream!

Done, easy peasy

These are so good when you need a bit of energy and are wanting something sweet

An amazing pre workout, I use these when I am on the run and don't want to eat out or just need a boost of energy

A bunch of yummy ingreds and completely clean!  

4. Chocolate Covered....
How about choc covered anything????

I kid, I kid

But I like to use between 60-75% cacao when I dip, cover and smother with choc :)

This particular pic has fresh strawberries { see the theme? } and nut clusters

I don't always do nut clusters as well but I had extra choc and you never, ever waste chocolate

Hope you enjoyed part one of this delish series 
If you have any ideas shoot them my way

Simple Summer Face

Back today with a fun and simple makeup post

As you know from a previous post, the importance of SPF and protecting your face is paramount

Now, esp in the summer I tend to wear less makeup. My face is tanner [ woop woop ] and overall my skin is clearer

I have a very simple routine that I am going to share only because people tend to ask a lot! And they assume I wear more makeup than I do { since I work in the industry }

But my motto is Less IS more..... In the skincare aspect as well as makeup

makeup is meant to enhance features rather than covering them up or trying to change them. So ladies I challenge you to pick out your best feature and just roll with it

Here's my products I generally use on a day to day basis with some tweaks depending on where I am going...
1. Dior Powder Foundation Brush // what I put my Pur on with. Of course any fluffy brush will work. I also adore this brush line
2. IT Cosmetics Ball brush // for bronzer and blush. I wash it every other day
3. IT Cosmetics lip gloss // the perfect everyday nude color
4. Smith's Rosebud lip balm // for everyday and night
5. Cargo blush // perfect coral with a hint of shimmer THIS is also an ultimate fave
6. Pur Minerals foundation  // Atlanta based mineral makeup & pretty much all the foundation I ever use
7. Too Faced bronzer // smells like chocolate. le duh why else would I use it????? Also love this one
8. RMS Living Luminizer // think--- glowy not shimmery & made from coconut oil YUM

So pretty much, apply my favie sunscreen [ who wants wrinks??? ]

Then apply my Pur, bronzer, blush, luminizer etc.

Super simple but very pretty and it takes 5 mins cause I ain't got time to spend all day doing makeup

I have better things to drink green juice...

^^^^^Dropped my blush that morning......

ugh hate that sh!t

The result is tan and glowy
Always drinking my fave juice

 Wanna see a brow and eye post?????

Hope you enjoyed a peek into my summer face routine

NEW Lululemon + Victoria's Secret

I am back with another shopping post, Lululemon, what else??? Do you know whose blog this is??

I have been sick lately [ gallbladder issues YAY ] and needed some retail therapy

Along with a Sprinkles cupcake run....ha

I needed a new pair of crops and previously tried on the Live Natural crops and loved the cotton and the fit. I didn't have a cotton pair and the feel and fit was amazing. So I went in and grabbed those along with the WU cotton roll down crops.

Thinking I wasn't going to like them as much, I tried them on, f'n loved them and decided to purchase.

Subtle leg logo
I got the dark gray. It was between that or the green which I am sure will be joining this pair shortly...

With the waist folded
I like it better that way vs the high waist. I think the fabric of the crop along with the folding of the waist creates a very flattering look.

I DID back squat in these and they held up alright. Depends on the metcon, have any of you ladies worn the cotton while working out??

I also tried on the Ebb To Street pant and ughhhh horrible fit! Baggy in the crotch and loose around my legs...but they look cute on everyone else!!

 [ love the baggies ]

Died and went to heaven...
I saw this bra online and was like *eh maybe* so I tried on and literally loved it
Like lovey love loved it. NOT for the bustier ladies as it does not have support or removable cups let alone a place to put cups.

Girls with small boobies unite because

Peeking out from my mountain tank, I loved the antidote pop for spring
Also wearing the awesome speed shorts

I wanted another pair of those buuuuuut it seems the 'colorful' ones are made of a stiffer fabric that I don't like. I will forever love my black pair

Had to throw in these cute cheekies from VS

I die for a cheeky bikini
