Brighten Up Your Snow Days w/ Hello Toothpaste!

Be sure to try out your very own Hello Toothpaste here!

It has been snowing for four days in Tennessee and after a terrible ice storm just last week I need something to brighten up my days. These beautiful newly packaged Hello Toothpastes help brighten up my morning routine! The bright colors, and fun flavors make a rather boring routine much more exciting. My favorite is the Mojito Mint, but my husband loves the new Peach Mango Mint (pictured below). If you are regular to my blog, you know that back in 2013 I reviewed this brand in their old packaging and a different flavor. I mentioned how much I adored it, and how it wasn't like other Artificial Free,Cruelty Free, toothpastes you might buy at your local drugstore.

Now you can't tell me that this bright orange and white toothpaste going to make your day a little better heheh okay after you have had your 2 cups of coffee maybe :) My husband took this immediately after I got it and claimed it as his own. First he only wanted it for it being the colors for UT VOLS and that always wins over anything else. However, after using it he said it had a great flavor to it. The toothbrush he liked also because it is made from recycled materials and we do our best to buy recycled products. I even added the Pink Grapefruit to the guest bathroom, so they can enjoy it too!

Starting this month you can find the new hello products at your local Target, and their new line for kids that is being released. Their line for kids are mint free and in fun flavors like Green Apple and Blue Raspberry which sound like flavors I might like.

• Formulated without artificial sweeteners, dyes, or preservatives, hello products are never tested on animals – in fact we’re leaping bunny certified - and made in the USA.

Thanks to hello for sponsoring today's post!

Working Out Indoors-Some of my current workout videos!

Biggest Loser Weight loss Yoga: $9.96 on Amazon or cheaper amazon streaming video: 
I love this video because I like Yoga, but anybody knows that the bigger you are the harder it is to do some of the moves. I like this video because it is Yoga and it is made to help you with losing weight. I would do this video after I do another cardio type video. It is a great sweat, and my arms and legs really feel the burn after doing it. If you are looking for something that won't hurt your joints try this video. I had to do it a few times before I really enjoyed it. Yoga is hard but so worth the effort.

Biggest Loser Last Chance Workout $7.41 on Amazon also cheaper if you do amazon streaming video!
This is a little more high impact so please take that into consideration before trying it. It claims that you can lose up to 30lbs in 6 weeks by doing this video and of course eating a healthy diet. I haven't done this video for 6 weeks straight I like to do it a few times a week but I have to switch up my videos or I get bored. You will work up a great sweat, and you will absolutely see results if you keep up with the workouts. So if you are looking for something a little bit higher impact, and will get your heart racing try this video!

Leslie Sansone 5 Mile Power Walk $12.05 on
Leslie has a lot of videos for walking, and I own most of them. This 5 mile walk is one of my favorite, especially in the winter. Whether it be snow,ice or just plain cold weather  I can't get out and walk 5 miles. I walk my dogs and once around my neighborhood is only 3 miles. I have little dogs and they can't go for very long in the heat or cold so working out with them isn't possible. I can however wake up and walk 5 miles with this video in about 40minutes. A great way to start my day, and anything else I do for weight loss is just extra calories burned. It is low impact and I put it on mute and do a playlist of upbeat music to get me going. However, Leslie is amazingly upbeat and happy so if you need a boost listen to her by all means.

Also if you aren't much for videos but you want to workout I found this amazing YouTube channel that has made me dance like a crazy person everyday this week hehe. I have added a lot of her videos to my YouTube playlist and then play it through my Apple TV. No I cannot dance, but I give it a good old college try and boy after just 20 minutes I am wiped out heh. I have passed on going to classes like this because I have no actual rhythm. However, my dogs don't judge me very much if I give them treats first heh. It's a lot of fun and when I get lost in the moves I just make up my own moves and pretend that I am the queen Beyonce.

My quick take on these goodies:

 This glow mist is a game changer, forget all other spray mists this is the one you need. I have combination,sensitive,acne prone skin and this works amazing for me. I don't get greasy, or have any breakouts from using it. The areas where my skin is dry, this just moisturizes and adds a glow to my skin. It is the perfect addition to any makeup collection, and I can imagine when the spring comes I will use this on my chest and shoulders to add a little glow as well!

If you area regular to my page you already know I adore the Pixi Nail Varnishes because they last much longer than the average nail polish. I can wear these polishes for 5-7 days before I notice any color being worn off, or chipping. Plus they have the most beautiful shades that I can't get enough of.

Pixi Fairy Dusts are gorgeous pigments, and I think I officially have every shade that they have available. Not only are they gorgeous shades, but they are long lasting and buildable for a quick day to night smoky eye!

Teadora-Rainforest at Dusk Body Polish

 1.5oz is $10 here online

What they say:
Packed with Antioxidant and vitamin-rich Buriti, Babassu, Brazil Nut, Rose Hip Seed, and Maracujá oils, plus potent exfoliants such as Açaí Seeds and Amazonian Clay our ultra-smooth Nourishing Body Polish removes dead skin while providing amazing hydration for brighter, healthier, smoother skin.
 You can see the body polishers in this pic!

 In my household we love body scrubs and polishes. We are always looking for something new to try out, and I was so happy to give thisTeadora body polish a try. I immediately placed it in our shower, and the next morning my husband asked me where I got this body polish. He of course didn't call it that, but he was referring to "this scrub" he was using.

It makes your skin feel not only cleaner but also softer. You don't have a residue on your skin after you get out of the shower, but you feel like you are getting moisturized just from using the product. We have already used this polish up, and I have already been scoping out their website for other scents. With Spring coming I like to switch up my scents, it puts me in a warm state of mind.

If you are looking for a new body scrub, that is a multi purpose product I suggest giving Teadora a try. I know this will be something I use all year round because of how great my skin looks and feels after use.

Have you tried out Teadora yet? What is your favorite product?

Get Red Carpet Ready with Skin Inc-Glam Like a Star

skin inc glam like a star

glam like a star with skin inc

I am excited to share with you these amazing products from Skin Inc. This kit is the Glam like a Star Kit which includes a Pure Revival Peel and a Pure Deep-sea Hydrating Mask.With the Oscars literally just days away, I know I am looking forward to having my own Award Winning healthy glow.

First let me tell you how the Peel works which is your first step in getting Glam like a Star! I start with my skin dry, and rub it in all over my face. They suggest you wait 10 seconds until you see a milky consistency. It usually is just a matter of seconds before you notice the change in the product. I take my fingertips and rub in a circular motion which allows the skin to be exfoliated. You will simply just rinse off, and your skin will immediately just feel cleaner. My skin didn't look any different, but it definitely felt smoother and I noticed using these two products together completely changed the texture of my skin.

Secondly what my skin wanted, and also needed the most was this Hydrating Mask. As
someone who sufferers from combo skin and it's been a rough winter for my skin I was excited to try this mask out. You will notice from my photo above that this is a clear mask, with a gel like consistency. You can apply it all over your face in a thin layer, or I like to sleep in mine. I like that it's clear so I don't have to always scare my husband when I come to bed with products to sleep in on my face.Plus, I know most of us are super busy and skincare sometimes gets forgotten about. With this mask, put it on and go to bed it is simple as that!

There are a lot of products that claim to be hydrating, but honestly this mask is no joke. I am so happy to have this as part of my skincare routine. I also love that it's gentle enough to use under my eyes, and how my sensitive skin has really enjoyed this product.This product is also free from parabens which I know is really important to a lot of people.

I love these products because they have helped clear up my skin, and make me feel comfortable without makeup. I can buy all the makeup in the world, but nothing beats the feeling of having good skin.These are new to Sephora, and I am already looking at some of their other products to pick up.

So tell me have you tried any of the skincare from Skin Inc? What’s your favorite?

This is part of the The Beauty Council Collab Post and I am honored to be apart of these amazing women!

Baby It's Cold Inside-Where Have I Been?

Just a little note to tell you that I have been without electricity since Monday so all my blog posts set in draft and I wasn't able to post them to have them go live. So I am behind and it looks like I was a total slacker for my blog but I promise I have content to share I had no way of getting it up for you!

I live in TN and we had an ice storm, which we were in no way prepared for so we were snowed in/our driveway was an ice skating rink. I will have lots and lots of reviews going up next week and some videos will be up on YouTube as soon as I can get them all edited. Thanks for all the love in my absence it was nice to get online and have comments,and views galore!

I should have been much more productive while I had no electricity or anything to distract me. Honestly after it dropped down so cold that we could see our breath indoors,I didn't want to move very much. 

I have a great post coming up for you tomorrow with an amazing skincare line I have been trying out! Stay tuned for that!

Stay warm :)
