As many of you have noticed, I’ve been posting more about my workouts on Facebook. I tend to work out 5 to 6 times a week. I love lifting weights. I’ve been lifting weights since my teenage years, but I really started to focus on weight training in college and graduate school. When I was younger, I was super thin. I had a high metabolism, and couldn’t gain weight even if I tried. Fast forward to now, my body type gains muscle quickly. So, my overall goal is continue building muscles.

This week starts a 7 week journey for me with a brand new program. I have a fitness background, but a lot of the lifestyle changes in this routine are amazing and I’ve seen great results on other people. So, I figured why not add this to my fitness routine. I would like to lean out 10 pounds. I do not want to lose a large amount of weight. I would like to sleep better and this program helps with that, as well. I will be sharing with you my workout check-ins, my grocery cart and my meals. So, get ready! 

I’m teaming up with an amazing coach and she’s adding another round to Faster Way to Fat Loss on May 13th. The results for this program speak for themselves. Google search or search on Instagram and you will see the amount of people that have been impacted by this new way of life. Whether you’re already active or you’re looking to gain more strength and start an active lifestyle, this program is for you. What’s stopping you from making an investment in yourself?

Collaborating with Dr Dennis Schimpf-5 Ways To Turn Back the Clock.

Uncategorized

Hey Friends!
One of my most requested blog topics is skincare and I’ve had the opportunity to collaborate with many great skincare brands, but I also enjoy learning from experts in their field. We all want to know the secret to glowing skin, so today I’m teaming up with Dr. Dennis Schimpf!
5 Ways To Turn Back The Clock
And Look Younger In The New Year
It’s human nature that as people grow older, they want to look younger.
The tendencies of aging can make that desire an uphill climb for many. Even if they feel energetic and healthy, they may look old and tired.

“Women and men ages 45 to 65 really start to notice a difference in their skin when they look in the mirror,” says Dr. Dennis Schimpf, author of Finding Beauty: Think, See And Feel Beautiful, and founder of Sweetgrass Plastic Surgery.  (www.sweetgrassplasticsurgery.com). “Healthy living makes them feel great on the inside, but on the outside, the years can take a toll.
“They look for ways to turn back the clock, for their face to more closely reflect what they feel like. And there are indeed minimally invasive ways to stave off some of the effects of aging.”
Schimpf suggests five ways to turn back the clock:
Skin-care products. Reversing the aging of the face starts by choosing good skin-care products. “Sunblock is one of the best defenses against the rays that can really age the skin,” Schimpf says. “Good skin care can build a solid foundation, so start it before spending money on other efforts. Having healthy skin to start with can optimize the outcomes for any procedure.”

Lasering. This is a more aggressive type of treatment. Micro-ablative is one of the most common types of laser treatment. “It uses fractional technology to basically punch micro holes in the skin, reducing pore sizes and allowing new skin and growth to occur,” Schimpf says. “It’s similar to aerating a lawn, where holes are punched in the grass and healthier grass grows. The treatment tightens and offers mild to moderate improvements in wrinkling.”
Dermabrasion, microdermabrasion and skin peels. Dermabrasion is a more aggressive type of skin peel involving removal of the upper layers of skin through surgical scraping of the skin. “This treatment is usually reserved for facial wrinkles or scars,” Schimpf says. “Microdermabrasion sands away the uneven outer layer of skin. It treats sun damage, stretch marks and small scars. Skin peels use a solution to remove the damaged outer layer of skin, improving texture and tone.”
Fillers. “There are dozens of fillers on the market for the soft-tissue changes, but the three main ones are hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxyapatite-based, and autologous fat transfer, which harvests the patient’s own fat to be injected into the facial tissues,” Schimpf says. “In the forehead, injections reduce wrinkles. In the lips, injections make them plumper.”
Fat grafting. This is a minimally invasive procedure but usually more expensive up front. “Roughly half of patients require two sessions of fat grafting to get the graft to take,” Schimpf says, “because the procedure doesn’t just inject a large clump of fat. The fat tissue that’s being transferred has to be in touch with surrounding tissue that contains blood vessels. Otherwise the clump of fat doesn’t survive. Overall, fat grafting technology has really improved.”
“It happens to many people – they look in the mirror and don’t really like what they see,” Schimpf says. “But there are good, affordable options that have little or no downtime and counter some of the effects of aging.”

Moving Day-Teaming up with Atlanta Peach Movers!

Uncategorized

07E3D503-653E-4936-9DB4-619B40B63AAE

Three words that most people love or dread, It’s moving day! Being an Army brat, my family is very familiar with making cross country moves. But, I can honestly say, each move is different. Moving is often one of the most exhilarating feelings whenever you’re ready to explore new territories, live in a different home and make new memories. But, moving can also stressful experience if you’re not prepared. So, today I am sharing 5 useful tips to implement in your packing routine that will create a smooth transition.

First, make a list of the packing supplies you will need. Most items can be found at your local Walmart, Home Depot, U-Haul or Lowe’s.  It’s essential to use the correct supplies when moving in order to keep your possessions safe throughout the move. I recommend purchasing all of the necessary items several weeks early. You can also purchase products that are friendly to the environment, as well.

“ Here’s what you’ll need to keep your possessions protected.
  • 15-20 small cardboard boxes
  • 10-15 medium cardboard boxes
  • 10-15 large cardboard boxes
  • Cardboard separators (for packing glasses and dishes)
  • Bubble wrap
  • Packing peanuts
  • Clean newsprint (bedsheets, linens and blankets work well too)
  • Stretch wrap (for bundling awkward items like skis or furniture pieces)
  • Mattress bags
  • Box cutter
  • Packing tape
  • Sharpie markers

These must-have packing supplies will help you have a smooth move.“ HGTV

Second, do not procrastinate. I know this may be easier said than done, but it’s important to stay on schedule.  Set a deadline for purchasing supplies, cleaning out items in your home, and packing rooms in your home. The sooner you’re able to finish important tasks, the less you have to worry about when the initial move begins.

Third, inventory your items. No matter the length of time you’ve lived somewhere, it’s important to inventory what you have. Go through the items in your home and decide whether you will keep, throw away, sell or donate items that you don’t use or don’t need anymore. Decluttering will help your move because you will not be taking the same unused items to a different place.

Fourth, enlist help. We all know most tasks take less time if we have a group of people helping. Plan a fun packing party. Purchase food and snacks for your friends and family. “For those that are lucky enough to have a group of friends that help out, make sure you plan ahead with a setup that will make them want to put you straight into the BFF category. Our idea? A junk food bar! Stock up on all the snacks that you know you shouldn’t be eating but love to anyway: chips, chocolate bars, gummy candy, cookies, etc. Put it all out and encourage everyone to help themselves.If you want to get fancy and have some time before the move, try some of these recipes, and whip up your own junk food buffet.”HGTV

Play upbeat music. We all tend to work faster when music is playing. Although the evening is fun, it’s also very resourceful to your moving schedule. Before you start the packing party, as a side note, be sure to mark any items that you don’t need packed and also assign people to pack various rooms of your home. This way, you have multiple rooms covered while you have extra people assisting you.

Turn Your Home Into an Oasis-Collaborating with Triton Pools.

The warmer months are approaching, and many people are going on vacation. But, I also believe your home should be your oasis. Home is definitely where the heart is. I believe everyone needs a place at home in which they can unwind and rejuvenate themselves after a stressful day. The place where you feel most alive can often be your creative space and your place of refuge. Here are 4 tips to transform your home for the spring and summer.

Transform your bedroom by painting the walls.  It’s no secret that wall color can affect our mood. Often times, bright, airy colors awaken the senses and make people feel alive. The room you spend the most time in should always be a place of comfort. The interior colors of your home should reflect your personality. If you’re someone that loves color, adding a vibrant color to your room will awaken your creativity. If you’re someone that loves soft hues, changing your wall colors to a calming hue will give you an added sense of tranquilty.

“Getting creative with color in your home can be an excellent (and inexpensive) way to refresh your state of mind. The overlying colors in your home should make you feel good. “In the bedroom, depressed individuals looking to boost their mood should decorate the room with at least 20 percent of one of their favorite colors, one that is more vibrant versus using flat colors only,” Yin says. Beyond painting your walls, you can choose bedding, furniture, or decorative pillows and blankets in your favorite shade. You can also try incorporating colors that are soothing, including light blues and greens, suggests Ken Lauher, a New York City feng shui consultant. Paint can replicate the effect of sunlight on your walls. “I actually use a paint from Benjamin Moore that mimics the effect of sunlight,” Gomez says. “It helps soften the walls and give the room a feeling of glowing sunlight.” Everyday Health

You can give your bedroom a mini makeover by purchasing new bedding, pillows, or curtains. Often times, adding pops of color or patterns can take a space from drab to fab! I change my bedding and pillows every season. I feel like it’s so nice to have a different look in my room when the seasons change. You can find many bedding sets that are affordable and great quality by simply shopping around to find the best deal. Incorporate patterns and bright colors by changing your pillows. You don’t have to spend an arm and a leg to make a space your own.

Invest in candles. Aromatherapy is an easy way to change the overall mood of your space. If you’re a fan of certain scents, you can bring them to life in your home. Many people use candles and essential oils to add a signature scent to their home. There’s nothing better than making your space inviting.

Last but not least, if your indoor decor is great, why not change your outdoor decor? Adding a pool, or a patio automatically changes your home into a spot that is inviting for visitors.  Think of all the gatherings you can host. Not only will your space be inviting for visitors, but having a relaxing space of your own can improve your overall health. Self-care is important and every day is an opportunity to reduce stress in your life. “These are some ways to practice self-care, and how a pool can help: Take Time Yourself, Away From Others. It’s easy to get into a pattern of serving others and to forget to make time for yourself, especially if you have a demanding job or a family with children. It’s important, and healthy, to have alone time that you can use to recharge and do what makes you happy. A swimming pool offers a serene and peaceful space, just steps from your door, where you can take that time away from your hectic life and plan some alone time.Hard work has its benefits, but without rest, your body and mind won’t function as well. As the weather warms up, taking time in the evenings or weekends to rest by the pool can help you recharge. You may find the added rest enables you to be sharper and perform even better!” Leisure Pool Services. Ultimately, changing your environment will make a huge difference.

La primavera ha llegado, ¡es hora de limpiar la primavera! Primero, hablemos de por qué las limpiezas de primavera son tan geniales. A lo largo de los meses más fríos, es fácil acumular artículos que ocupan espacio en su hogar. Muchas personas eligen la primavera como temporada para limpiar sus armarios, garajes y espacios de almacenamiento. Nuestro enfoque principal en este artículo será ropa y piezas de inversión. Muchos de nosotros amamos la moda. Me encanta la moda, pero hago un punto para limpiar mi armario varias veces al año. Siendo un blogger de moda, tengo maravillosas piezas que me encanta usar, pero también tengo que tener en cuenta que mi armario solo puede contener una cierta cantidad de artículos. Creo que la organización es la clave para eliminar mucho estrés en el entorno de su hogar. Un espacio limpio y ordenado es la clave para tener una mente clara.

“El desorden puede hacernos sentir estresados, ansiosos y deprimidos. La investigación en los Estados Unidos en 2009 encontró que los niveles de la hormona del estrés cortisol eran más altos en las madres cuyo entorno familiar estaba saturado. Un entorno doméstico con aglomeraciones crónicas puede llevar a una respuesta constante de bajo grado de lucha o huida, que grava los recursos diseñados para la supervivencia. “Esta respuesta puede desencadenar cambios físicos y psicológicos que afectan la forma en que combatimos las infecciones y digerimos los alimentos, además de dejarnos en mayor riesgo de diabetes tipo 2 y enfermedades cardíacas”. Newsweek 2019

A continuación, ordene su ropa en 3 secciones: Done, venda y deseche las secciones. Hay muchos elementos que puede querer conservar por razones sentimentales. Pero, si ha tenido un artículo que no ha cabido en varios años o está esperando la oportunidad de usarlo, muchas veces esto significa que es hora de deshacerse del artículo.

¿Qué tal si te gustaría ganar un poco de dinero extra vendiendo tu ropa? Hay varias aplicaciones en línea donde puede establecer su precio para el artículo que está vendiendo y la compañía le cobra una pequeña tarifa después de realizar la compra. También puede organizar la venta de clósets en su sitio de redes sociales favorito o puede programar un día para una venta de garaje. El beneficio de vender directamente en las aplicaciones de reventa es que no tiene que preocuparse por el pago. El sitio web recoge el dinero por adelantado y le pagan después de que el artículo se envía. Los beneficios de tener una venta de armario en las redes sociales o una venta de garaje es que recauda el dinero el mismo día.

Spring has arrived it’s time for spring clean-outs! First, let’s talk about why spring clean outs are so great. All through the cooler months, it’s easy to accumulate items that are taking up space in your home. Many people choose spring as a season to clean out their closets, garages and storage spaces. However, our main focus in this article will be cleaning out clothing and investment pieces. Many of us love fashion. I love fashion, but I make a point to clean out my closet several times a year. Being a fashion blogger, I have wonderful pieces that I love to wear, but I also have to keep in mind that my closet can only hold a certain amount of items. I believe organization is the key to eliminating a lot of stress in your home environment. A clean, decluttered space is the key to having clear mind.

“Clutter can make us feel stressed, anxious and depressed. Research in the United States in 2009 found that levels of the stress hormone cortisol were higher in mothers whose home environment was cluttered. A chronically cluttered home environment can lead to a constant, low-grade fight-or-flight response, taxing resources designed for survival. This response can trigger physical and psychological changes that affect how we fight infections and digest food, as well as leaving us at greater risk of Type 2 diabetes and heart disease.” Newsweek 2019

Here’s a few tips to guide you through spring cleaning.

First, get rid of any clothing and luxury pieces you haven’t worn in a while. Yes, clean out your closet! Use tall laundry baskets as a means to sort through your clothing and shoes. If you haven’t worn an item in several months, remove that item from your closet.

Next, sort your clothes into 3 sections-Donate, Sell and Throw Away. There are many items that you may want to keep for sentimental reasons. But, if you’ve had an item that hasn’t fit in several years or you’re waiting on the opportunity to wear it, often times this means it’s time to part with the item.

Why is important to donate? Often times, there are many tragedies that happen throughout the year and I think it’s important to give back to those in need. There are several organizations that accept clothing donations if they are gently used and in great shape. There may also be clothing boxes in your town to donate bags of clothing. These boxes are usually checked frequently and distributed accordingly.

What if you would like to earn a little bit of extra money selling your clothes? There are several apps online where you can set your price for the item you’re selling and the company takes a small fee out after the purchase is made. You could also arrange closet sale on your favorite social media site or you can set a day for a yard sale. The benefits of selling directly on resale apps is you don’t have to worry about payment. The website collects the money up front and you get paid after the item ships. The benefits of having a closet sale on social media or a yard sale is you collect the money the same day.
