Did You Know: An Apple A Day

..Keeps The Doctor Away & Keeps Your Skin Looking Young..

Can you tell I love fruit?!

Vitamins C, A and E- Citrus fruits, strawberries and many other fruits contain these vitamins which are important antioxidants that protect your body from the damage.

Phytonutrients- The pigments that make blueberries blue, rasperberries and cranberries red are called phytonutrients: powerful antioxidants that protect your body against cancer-causing radicals. They may also slow down the effects of aging!

The Brain- Studies have shown that a diet high in fruit can help prevent many of the symptoms of diseases like Alzheimer's and other deteriorating conditions of the brain.

strawberries have always been a favorite of mine

The USDA recommends at least five servings of fruit in your daily diet.
Tips to make it happen:
  1. Add fruit to breakfast cereal.
  2. Prepare fruit salads to last few days.
  3. Find recipes that contain fruit.
  4. Smoothies!(I make these at home all the time!) Check out a great fat burning recipe here and a good energy boosting smoothie here

** Fruit has also been shown to refresh the face, eliminate black spots, and smooth the skin.

Fall Festivities To Try This Week!

Pin It
Is everyone excited for Thanksgiving Break this week?! I am..I'll admit I'm much more of a Christmas person and began putting up a few lights and snowglobes out a few weeks ago lol! But because the rest of you guys probably dont skip straight to Christmas like I do lol I put together a list of a few fun activities you can do over the break.

Get Moving:
For most people holidays mean A LOT of food. Make sure during this time you try to stay active a few times a week.

Whether you like to go to nail salons or treat yourself to a mini-pamper session at home. Treating yourself to a manicure is a great activity. You can check out some of my fall Mani-Monday's here and here.

Spoil Your Skin:
Fall means weather changes. Make sure you're giving your skin and lips some extra TLC. Check out my First Impression of a great balm here

Be Thankful:
There are so many things to be thankful for EVERY SINGLE DAY! During the holidays we're more open with our gratitude, take a moment to think about things that are going right for you. Here's a few simple ones we can all agree on..
I'm thankful for the dirty dishes because it means we have food to eat...
I'm thankful for the electric bill because it means we have electricity ..

When Life Gives You Lemons, Use Them As A Toner

Pin It
Tip of the Day: Lemon Juice as a Toner

How many of us have spent anywhere from $5-$20+ on facial toners? I love things you can repurpose. Not only can you add to your tea, bake, and cook with lemons but they're a great and inexpensive alternative to pricey facial toners.

First Impression: Sugar Lip Treatment

Pin It
Sephora's Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment w/ SPF 15
(Image from Sephora)

First things first, I have always hated chapstick!! You couldn't pay me to wear chapstick, carmex, burts bees, etc!! I feel that they tend to flake, I never like the scent, that make my lips feel weird and u have to re-apply them all the time!! *breathes* I love this product and have been using it for a while now. I was irritated when I first got it as my "free gift," because I wanted a shower gel instead and in fact didn't touch it for a while haha because I really had my heart set on that gel!
