Basic Touch-Up Essentials

 

While creating flawless and beautiful make-up is one thing, maintaining it to be that way all day and night is another issue to think about. For a person with combination of oily and dry skin, I deal with 2 problems; face will turn shiny after few hours or makeup will crease due to dryness. So what’s a girl to do to solve this massive problem? Aha! Yes, I always bring my “touch-up makeup” with me inside my purse. By the way how adorable is this red purse?

What Makeup to Bring

 

You do not have to bring your entire makeup case to keep your face looking fresh all day and night. Adding more makeup will make your face seem “caky.” I use the Invisimatte Blotting Powder Universal by Fenty Beauty. This has been my go-to product to keep my t-zone shine free. It’s also good for fixing the crease on my skin. You can use the applicator it comes with, however, I prefer using my Japonesque Fluff Concealer Brush. This is one of my brushes that I can’t live without. It’s the perfect size for my under-eye area and small enough to fit my purse.

 

Next on my list is the RMS cream foundation (shade 33) I have blogged about this foundation since day one. I can’t stress enough how great this product is; It’s organic, insanely small packaging and it has great coverage. Sometimes touching your face or any incident which wipes off your makeup can happen. Having a small foundation on hand will be very helpful.

 

Lastly, do not forget to bring lipstick or lip-gloss. I have lipsticks in my car and in all my purses because the key to looking fresh is having your lip-color “on-point” at ALL times.

How to Grow Wheat-grass Indoors

 

Growing wheat-grass is SOOOO easy and simple. All you need is soil, organic wheat grass seeds, water and sunlight. I grow wheatgrass for my tortoise Roger Davis. He loves it. He also eats hay, nasturtium etc.. I harvest my wheat-grass right before the grass turns yellow. This is called second cut. This is more nutritious for tortoises.

 

Wheat-grass is also good for juicing. One shot a day would be amazing for your health. Make sure to harvest it when it’s green not yellow. I use top soil with no fertilizer or any bad chemicals that can be harmful for my tortoise. Pick organic and non-gmo seeds.

 

Watch video below to see step by step instructions on how to grow wheat-grass indoors.  Enjoy!

 

 

Is Roger too cute or what? Comment below if you want to see more videos of him. Lastly, If you have any questions, please let me know.

Claudia Elaine Bubble Mask Demo and Review

Today is all about skin. Paul and I created the video below demonstrating how to use the Rose Essential Bubble Mask by Claudia Elaine. The enormous amount of fun we had creating this video for you is unforgettable.

I apply facial skin care mask once-a-week after doing white-head and acne extractions. There are tons of different face mask in the market. Hence, it’s really good to own variety of masks because they all have ingredients that your skin would benefit from.

 

Product Description:

 

The Rose Essential Bubble Mask by Claudia Elaine has micro-carbonated bubbles that will tighten your pores while exfoliating dead skin cells of your face. Also, the fizzling bubbles of this mask will cleanse, hydrate and control oil of your skin leaving it firmer and radiant. The secret ingredients of this product are first is Rose Water. Rose Water is good for hydrating your face and giving it moisture all day. Next ingredient is carbonated water. Carbonated water improves the firmness and the tightness of your skin balancing the natural skin’s pH. The third ingredient is the anti-aging benefits of Lotus flower extract. Moreover this extract got antioxidants, fatty acids and vitamins that are very beneficial to your skin.

 

When I first met my husband Paul Davis ten years ago, he did not moisturize, exfoliate nor use facial mask. I couldn’t believe he lived his life (before meeting me) without moisturizing! I was in complete shock. His skin shows damages such as skin discoloration, wrinkles and more. Now, I make sure he moisturizes, exfoliate and use face mask.

 

 

 

Paul’s Honest Opinion About Rose Essential Bubble Mask

He gives this mask 5 score out of 5. The fun factor was a plus for him. Although the bubbles seem to be appearing all over his face including on his mouth and eyes, he didn’t seem to be bothered by it. His skin appeared softer and smoother after only one use. Lastly, he mentioned he will definitely buy again!

 

My Honest Opinion About Rose Essential Bubble Mask

I give this product 4 out of 5. I love the feeling of bubbles foaming on my skin. The smell of rose-water was so invigorating. My skin felt softer, well hydrated and ultra clean. However the price is a bit too high for me. This product retails for $40/5 sheet mask. I wish it’s more affordable.

 

Overall Paul and I were very amused by this product. We love taking care of our skin. I will try-out other masks for you and will let you know what I think about them.

 

Let me know, if you have any questions.

Fresh Peachy Day-time Look – Makeup Tutorial

Hey guys! The video below is a makeup tutorial on how to create fresh looking everyday makeup. I love wearing makeup that is so natural looking. I think I look better with simple makeup look

anyway. I think the secret to having a fresh look is the right concealer. Pick the right color (not too light/dark) for you that will blend well with your foundation. This concealer by Sheer Miracle is

awesome because it feels like I’m applying eye cream/moisturizer versus makeup. It is so lightweight, organic and perfect for my skin-tone. Another trick for a fresh looking is a great blush palette.

I found this Blush Bar palette by Benefit Cosmetics on Amazon, which by the way is only $58. It has a bronzer and different shades of blush. I’m obsessed with it!

Organic Plant-Based Healthy Protein Bar

Even my kids love these delicious protein bars!

 

Orgain Protein Bars 

 

Description:

100% Vegan

We believe in the power of the plant and its ability to serve up delicious, high quality protein. Our bars are certified vegan by Vegan Action.

We use a few simple ingredients like almonds, chia and dates, because we believe the simplest things in life are often the best.

These bars are made from only certified organic ingredients. You can rest assured that you’re feeding your body the best when you see the USDA Organic seal on every bar.

 

 

Ingredients:

ORGANIC DATES, ORGANIC PEANUT FLOUR, ORGANIC ALMOND BUTTER, ORGANIC NATURAL FLAVORS, ORGANIC ALKALIZED COCOA, ORGANIC CHIA PROTEIN, ORGANIC ALMONDS, SEA SALT

CONTAINS:
PEANUTS, TREE NUTS (ALMONDS)
          Protein bars are nutritional supplements that provide protein to your diet. They can be good or bad for you, depending on how you use them as part of your overall eating habits and fitness goals. There are a lot of protein bar products competing in the market, but not all bars are created equal. Here’s a diagram below to better understand how protein bar works;
Protein bar with high protein 300 and up = Use as Meal Replacement
Protein bar with low protein 220 and below = Use as Snacks

Use protein bars in moderation. Most protein bars contain anywhere from 150 to 250 calories each. Also, you want to make sure to pick protein bars low in fats and sugar. They are convenient to have so you don’t have to bring a turkey sandwich or yogurt with you when you go to the gym or on a bike ride. They are good for people, who are on-the-go.

Why I love the brand Orgain protein-bars?

        These protein bars are packed with nutritious and delicious ingredients. My favorite is the Chocolate Almond Sea Salt flavor. It is unbelievably tasty! My kids couldn’t stop eating them as well. Orgain protein bars taste so raw, simple yet really tasty. I love protein bars that are not too sweet. I absolutely recommend this brand because it is plant-based, organic, vegan, low in fats and sugar.
I started my weight-loss-journey as a way to share my story that losing weight “the healthy way” is possible. I have done it before after giving birth to my children. My weight went up because of pregnancy, then it went back down to the pre-pregnancy weight. My current weight is 130 lbs. due to I can easily gain weight, if I don’t workout and eat a lot of junk-food. Moreover, my goal-weight is 120 lbs. By eating healthy and working-out two times a week, I can reach my goals to a become the healthier me again.
Overall I’m glad I found this protein bar brand that offers a healthier option instead of other brands out there containing load of sugar and fats. Of course I do not eat protein bar regularly. I snack on yogurt, banana, almonds etc to make sure I’m getting a wide variety of nutritional diet.
Let me know, if you have any questions.
