Relaxation Time

Hey, ladies!

Ahh! It’s been one of those days where you have a thousand things going on, and you haven’t had any time for anything until the end of the day! It’s graduation time, and that means lots of parties, and the closing of yet another school year for my kids. Things will be busy! Well, after a great healthy dinner and a graduation party, it felt good to come home and relax and hang out for a bit. It was so nice, and I’m glad that I had at least 15 minutes to do it! Makes all the difference in the world! Always take time for yourself!!! ❤️❤️❤️

My 4 Favorite Beauty Items for the Summer! 

Hey, dolls!

I’ve gotten a few emails asking me what my favorite items are for the summer… Well, for some reason I love the “blush” color that’s so popular right now. I can’t stop buying clothes that are blush colored! Also, I’m obsessed with these four items:

1. I’m loving the Miss Dior Cherie perfume. It has the most amazing fresh smell, and I can’t seem to get enough of it.

2. LOVE the OPI color, Bubble Bath. It is a blushy light pink and it’s gorgeous. So cute on toes!

3. MAC Cosmetics is a charm when it comes to lip color. Adoring the color, MAC Brave. It goes with everything!

4. Philosophy makes amazing shower gels. I seem to keep buying the French Vanilla Bean Ice Cream. It may be because vanilla candles are my favorite.

What are some of the items you are loving, beauties? Share with me in the comment section, and I’ll feature them on Fit and Bliss!

Spirulina Breakfast Smoothie

Hi, ladies!

I wanted to share with you a great smoothie for breakfast, which includes the amazing green superfood, spirulina. Spirulina improves your blood quality, helps your immune system function better, and detoxifies your whole body. It’s a great plant-based protein that your body easily absorbs. Try this out some morning. It’s wonderful. You need to make sure to buy a good quality powder!

-1 cup coconut water
-1/2 cup avocado
-1 cup kale
-1/2 tsp spirulina powder
-1/2 tablespoon cacao nibs
-1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
-1/2 tablespoon honey

You can add in some berries and chia seeds too. Blend and enjoy!

Always make sure to purchase high-quality sprirulina powder!

Self Tan… Yay or Nay?

Hi, ladies!

We’ve all heard how horrible the sun is for our skin. It’s dangerous and it accelerates the aging process. I can’t believe that people still lay in tanning beds or in the sun and scorch their bodies to get a tan! Gross. It kind of makes me ill to know what they are actually doing to their skin.

My husband and I use to own a skin laser company, and I can’t believe what I learned about skin damage. Since then, I have been protecting my skin in more ways than one. I use the highest SPF known to mankind, and I insist my kids wear it too. I am of Greek decent, so I tend to get brown either way (which I guess that’s a plus for me).

Lately, I’ve seen all these self tanners out on the market. Some even include tan wipes. I have tried them, and no! They leave an orange residue on your hands, and it just doesn’t look natural.

Tan Physics has been in the news lately claiming to give your skin that perfect glow. Well, I haven’t tried it yet, but it’s definitely on my list. The one thing that I have tried, and actually really like, is the spray tan salons. The dozen times I’ve used them, I’ve been very happy, and I don’t leave there with orange hands, and my bed sheets actually stay white.

I’m going to stick with the spray tan salons, and stay out of the harsh sun. Do you have a favorite self-tan product? We would love to hear about it!

Nars Monoi Body Glow Oil

Happy Thursday, ladies!

Have you ever woke up on a dreary morning to find your skin felt dry and bleak? Nars Monoi Body Glow Oil sends so much nourishing moisture back into your body. The smell reminds me of Hawaiian islands. It’s like gold in a jar. And the smell sticks around all day like a great perfume. You never get sick of the aroma. It glides on evenly and makes your day so much better!

I use this mostly in the winter months when the air is cold and your skin dries out more often, but it can be used every morning. If any of you beauties are on the lookout for a great body glow, Nars is it! When you are feeling a bit “wintered out,” this will take you back to your favorite island vacation!
