I have a huge confession to make! I am the biggest skincare junkie that ever lived. I truly mean that. I’m always on the lookout for the best and brightest items that will do what they claim to do.
I recently received the Charlotte Tilbury skincare kit. It features the magic cream, eye cream, and the skin care cleansing duo. I really feel that the reviews I seen made me want to try it. Numerous reviews claimed that they saw a decrease in wrinkles, and their skin looked amazing.
If you don’t follow Charlotte Tilbury, you really should. In my opinion, she’s a skin genius. She makes everyone she works with look phenomenal . Celebrities work with her and they say the best things.
The skincare kit did wonders. The magic cream is exactly what it says, MAGIC. Your skin feels baby soft, the pores look like they have disappeared, and your wrinkles seem very improved. The wonder filter is another amazing product. It is used back stage for many shows and I can see why.
The Charlotte Tilbury products have become my one and only favorite. I’m going to be 45 soon and I feel as we age we see many issues that arise. I have to tell you that I have found wonders in Charlotte Tilbury products. They are the bomb. They will forever be a part of my family.
I recently 10 days ago set off on a health and detox adventure with a Sakara Life. The detox consisted of a 10 day devotion to living clean and plant based, discontinuing alcohol and coffee and other preservative filled foods , such as anything fried or foods full of bad fats. The thought of letting go of my weekly wine was a big scare to me. To be perfectly honest, I didn’t know if I could do it.
THE WAY IT WORKS
The detox started on a Monday for me. I felt this was a great day to start because it was the start of the week. There is no better day to start something like this than a Monday. We’ve all been there with diets. I started my morning off with a meditation . The meditation was more of an affirmation telling myself, “YES! I can go without coffee today. You have to understand, I LOVE my coffee. I started my morning coffee replacement with a nice glass of the Sakara Life detox tea. It honestly was delicious. It’s loaded up with many cleansing herbs. I honestly felt like, What Coffee? after drinking it.
I then poured me a small glass of filtered water and mixed the Beauty Water Tonic in with my water. It’s filled with Rose and I honestly couldn’t stop smelling it. The aroma was amazing. The Rose water is suppose to help with giving your skin a glow. I then made me my morning Green Smoothie with the Sakara’s Life Source Packet. I also added in my morning probiotic. This honestly was a delicious smoothie. I actually looked forward to it most mornings. Through out my week, I would change it up a bit, and add in a nice Sakara recipe for my breakfast. The recipe’s they include are delicious.
MID DAY SCHEDULE
The Mid Morning would come, and I would add in another Detox Tea. I , at this point, started becoming obsessed with the Detox Tea. My coffee never entered my mind. I did my morning workout. This consisted of either hot yoga, vinyasa yoga or HIIT. I changed it up through out my 10 day. The lunches consisted of one of the many delicious recipes included in the Sakara booklet. Daphne OZ includes some of her recipes in it, and I can’t explain the taste. They are all plant based.
My evening meal would include another delicious recipe . One of my favorites was the Green Veggie Stir Fry. Oh wow, was that good. Before Bed each night, I would make me a cold glass of water and add in the charcoal tonic. I drank this with my evening probiotic. This honestly wasn’t bad to drink either. This structure and schedule became second nature to me. I honestly didn’t miss my wine, and I LOVED this way of living.
This is the end of my Sakara 10 Day Reset. I have to say I’m obsessed. The differences I seen was my ability to not NEED wine or coffee. My moods were amazing. I became more focused and motivated with my blog. My skin looked awesome. Most days I didn’t even have foundation or concealer on. My water intake really increased, and I definitely had more energy. I am going to live this way everyday. I am going to focus on ME everyday . My diet consist only of plant based foods, and I will continue to eat plant based everyday. The way it makes my body feel, and they way it feeds it, is so unexplainable. I have improved my fitness on a daily schedule now. I don’t miss! I also lost 6 lbs on this detox. My body changed.
If you ever want to really change your life, you need to turn to Sakara Life. I can’t believe the amazing Reset they have developed to really change your health, in MIND, BODY, and SPIRIT. It’s a game changer people.
SiO Beauty is the full package when wanting to look beautiful and even more feel beautiful. I recently reviewed some of their products and I was astounded at the results. It’s one thing to spend hundreds of dollars at the doctors office to tighten up areas such as the face and neck, and dissolve the wrinkles we so much want to get rid of, but with SiO Beauty you do not have to do that. The patches that they have come out with are medical grade silicone power patches that smooth existing wrinkles and prevent future creases in just one night. The patches are derived from two organic componets- silicone and oxygen . When I wore these patches, they were so comfortable . They are potent and they flex just like a second skin because they are so contoured. I know that you can buy masks in the beauty stores, but these aren’t your average masks. They are clinically proven, Dermatologist Approved, Clinically tested, and you get instant gratification just after one use. After one night of wearing these patches, your skin will be like brand new. I absolutely fell in love with these patches. I went to bed, and all night it felt as if I had nothing on my face. I slept well, and the patches didn’t slide off or move around. I liked the natural feel of the patches, but even more I loved what I seen the next morning. My skin looked amazing. My creases had diminished on my neck, and I couldn’t believe the results. I was so happy with the results that I started telling my friends and family. Are you looking for something quick, efficient, and amazing? Look no further, and get you SiO Beauty patches today.
We live in a society where worth can be determined by age. As I’m writing this , I am 42 , moving toward 43. I have to admit, there are days when I get up , look at my growing kids, and it has to sink in that I’m in my 40’s. wow, it was like yesterday that I was pushing strollers and setting up play dates. As much as I would love just one of those days back, I’m embracing my age and where I’m at in my life. With society plastering all kinds of photoshopped pictures and social media pressing hard on the crazy anti aging products, it’s always easy to blame society on how this world relies so much on beauty, youth and worth. I have read about the 80 year old body builder , and the 100 year old marathon runner. They are inspiring and living. Living in my terms is what keeps us young and thriving. Yes, we may not be in our 20’s, but even so what do you really know about life in your twenties? Living each day to the fullest is what it’s all about. Rocking your age like no other. I love my 40’s,and where im at in life. Yes there are days that I wish I had my 20 year old body back, but as hard as I work out, I’m actually loving my body now . I can still do many things that I did in my 20’s, and I wake up every day thankful that it’s still working. You get what you put in. If you aren’t happy with something, FIX IT. CHANGE IT. You live one life. Get out and try new things. I always try to live outside my comfort zone. That’s just my personality. It has opened so many doors for me in so many ways. I blog and campaign for a living, and yes I love it, and im reminded every day that when I go for a campaign, im at times, competing with 20 something bloggers. Honestly, I’ve been chosen over them due to my wisdom and training in that aspect , and the fact that i have more experience with certain things. Believe me, age is what you make of it. You can look, feel, dress, eat, live any way you like, and it’s up to you how you choose to feel everyday you jump out of bed and choose to live your day. Get up and rock the skin your in!
Mushrooms have long been around as a great cleansing agent. They not only are used in cleansing your systems, but amazing for your digestion among other things.
I try to add in a mushroom tonic weekly, and you truly can feel the benefits. Mushrooms help ward off the flu( which none of us like), and helps really calm the spirit. There are many types of mushrooms, as Reishi being one of my favorites. They all play an important part in keeping our immune systems balanced, and in tact. Keeping our immune systems strong in the colder months is essential in keeping those colds and flus as bay. I have included a great mushroom tonic below, and it’s not only great for your health, but pretty delicious. I use a great Gynestemma as the base for this tonic. Gynestemma is great for lowering your cholesterol and immune regulation.
Steep one bag of Gynestemma tea
1/4 tsp. Hemp seeds
1 tbsp coconut oil
A few drops of vanilla stevia to taste. You can also try to use raw honey if you prefer.
Pour steeped tea in the blender before adding the powdered herbs. Blend on high until creamy. Add a dash of cinnamon.
