Great Beauty Product Alert! Buxom Mascara

Hey, ladies!

buxom mascaraCheck out my lashes in Buxom mascara! I LOVE this mascara for a number of reasons:
1) It gives your lashes the full effect by lengthening them and making them fuller, and 2) the mascara brush has so many bristles so it separates your lashes and prevents clumping. Buxom cosmetics makes so many amazing products. They can also be bought at Sephora stores or online.

My Fitness Routine

melissa workoutHi, ladies!

I’ve had some emails this week inquiring about my fitness routine. It differs every week, as I am so passionate about working out that I have to try new routines all the time!

Also, I feel if you don’t sweat during your workout, you aren’t working out hard enough. I have tried too many workouts where I leave not feeling like it was even a workout! When that happens, I can promise you I won’t try it again.

So here’s a sample workout week:

Monday – I usually start with a 2-mile run outside (weather permitting) or a 35-minute elliptical workout. Once I get my cardio in, I usually concentrate on one muscle group which is my arms. I will do a 40 minute arm workout or I’ll do a Kettleworx class.

Tuesday – I usually concentrate on my legs. Typically, I’ll do 40 minutes of leg work in the gym.

Wednesday – I start off with cardio, then back and arms.

Thursday – yoga class, then abs and legs. Sometimes, I fit in a Tracy Anderson workout. Love her!

Friday – cardio, then legs and abs. Or Kettleworx again!

Saturday – Light cardio, that’s it.

Sunday off! I usually have a cheat day a week where I eat what I want (tacos or Italian food usually)!

Back on it Monday!

There you have it. I do love fitness and I feel better with it in my life everyday. It’s a part of me, and it’s important that I stay on top of my game everyday! What’s your fitness routine look like?
