Flex Friday

Shop: Tank (similar one, two) | Sports Bra | Leggings | Shoes | Nails 

Flex Friday or Fitness Friday whatever your fancy make it count. Lately I have not been making it count and I am definitely feeling it. This is the same old song and dance and I am ready to change it. Not as a New Year’s resolution but like now. I am ready for barre, cycling, and maybe another 1/2 marathon, who is with me? This is ridiculous, but it is my own fault. I should start a support group for the “I use to workout, but fell off”. Who wants to join? But in all seriousness I feel like I am ready to get back and I have noticed that I do better working out in the winter. There is no better time then present. And working out isn’t complete unless you have cute workout clothes right? Shop some of my favorite athleisure picks below.

Athleisure

Shop: Tank | Leggings | Shoes | Watch 

Hi All! I have totally been a slacker! I need some motivation to get my life together and get in shape. I have around 125 days till the big day so I need to get it in gear. What workouts are you all doing? I am looking for something that will get me toned, meaning it incorporates weights. I am good at the cardio part of working out but I am not sure of a good weight routine. Definitely open for suggestions. What has worked for you? September will be here before I know it!
One thing that is always motivating to me is athletic wear or athleisure. Having the perfect outfit while getting your excise on is a must! So I have picked out some of my favorites and linked them below. What are you wearing while working out?

New Year, New Skincare Routine

New Year, New Skincare Routine! One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to take better care of my skin. Meaning use great products, protect it from the sun’s harmful rays, not using damaging chemicals that can dry out my skin, and removing my makeup every night before bed. Sounds easy enough, right? It is, if you find a skincare system that you love! This year I plan on trying multiple skincare products at different price points to find what my skin really loves.

First up is the Elemis Biotec X Foreo Energizing Skincare System. I love the Elemis line. I have tried multiple other products and have not been disappointed. My favorite in this skincare system is the night cream and the Luna Play. Check out my YouTube video below or here on how to use the products and why these two are my favorites.

Makeup Monday: Skyn Lounge

                     

This Makeup Monday is rather different then ones I have done before. Today I am talking about dermaplaning, which is a new way to exfoliate! Dermaplane is a treatment that uses a blade to remove hair/peach fuzz, as well as minimize scaring and improve overall texture and tone of the skin. You will immediate experience brightening of the skin and smoothness once finished. 
Last week I had the opportunity to visit Skyn Lounge Clinical Day Spa and receive dermaplaining. When I say my skin feels amazing, I mean it! My makeup goes on easier, unwanted hairs have been removed, and my skin is healthier and rejuvenated. This treatment takes 45 minutes and last 4-6 weeks. The investment is $95, but if you pair it with any other skincare treatment you can add dermaplaning for just $35 (now that is a deal!). If you are in the Louisville KY area I definitely suggest visiting the Skyn Lounge. They offer many services such as, facials, chemical peels, waxing, massage and makeup application. 
After the dermaplane treatment I had the opportunity to get my makeup done. Skyn Lounge offers brow and lash tinting, makeup lessons, and special occasion makeup. You can book them for any event and function that you have in your life. 
I would definitely recommend Skyn Lounge for all your skincare needs. Esspically since Fall is around the corner, everyone’s skin can use a little TLC.

Sky Organics

Happy Thursday All! I am trying to step up my beauty, skincare, and haircare game. So these organic and pure products by Sky Organics are right up my alley. They pride themselves on using only natural ingredients, being save to the earth and animals. Sounds like my kind of products. One thing I do love  about Sky Organics is that each product comes with an ebook or postcard to tell you how to use it and what its benefits are. Some of my favorites from the collection are the Mango Butter and the Castor Oil. Check out my other favorites in my new video here or below.

Winter Skin Care with Joanna Vargas

Taking care of you skin is extremely important, especially in the winter. This is why I love pampering myself with a facial. While I was in NYC last week I had the privilege to experience a Triple Crown facial from the Joanna Vargas Salon. This 60 minute facial includes microdermabrasion, mircocurrent and oxygen infused therapy to help hydrate, lift and tone loose skin, as well as, combat fine lines and wrinkles. 
My personal skin complaint is dryness, so the Triple Crown facial was just what it desired. It left my skin feeling rejuvenated, youthful and moisturized. I felt refreshed and did not even want to apply makeup after the session because my skin looked so great. I suggest you try it!
If you are in the NYC or LA area definitely visit the Joanna Vargas Salon. They offer multiple treatments, such a the Triple Crown facial, power peel, full body microdermabrasion and many more (which can be found here), just to name a few. The staff in the NYC office were wonderful. If you have any questions about scheduling talk to Kimberly and if you are interested in the Triple Crown facial request Elizabeth. 
Some of my favorite products that I use to keep my skin looking youth after a facial are the hydrating cream and the exfoliating mask. What are some of your ride or die skincare products for the winter time? Shop mine below and check out all her products here.
