Update on my life style change

Hello loves! I wanted to give you an update on my get fit journey.... It's going really well. I am still clean eating 98% of the time. I day 98% because in the last week we have had birthday party's for both my sister and daughter and I had a slice of cake both times. I think a slice is better then going back for more and more though so win there! I also allow myself one - two cheat meals a week. Notice I said cheat meal not cheat day. It may not be the best idea, but it works for me so far and that's what this is about. These are my month results from clean eating and working out at home.

I could really kick  myself now for not taking before measurements. I really thought I would be able to rely on the scale, however there is only a one pound difference in those two photos! CRAZY RIGHT?!?! I really have to get the idea out of my head to keep jumping on the scale and measure how my clothes are fitting. That is such a foreign concept to me though because I have been a scale whore for way to long! I will take some measurements for this next month. I have slacked a little with the working out and this will be a no excuse zone, so I will just say that I can and WILL do better this month. I had planned on working out 5-6 days a week going into this and this past week I have only worked out about three days. The other weeks have been going good, this past week not so much. When I workout I have been doing 10-15 minutes on the elliptical and followed that up with anywhere between 30-60 minutes of kettle bell lifting exercises.  I have also been squatting... ALOT!
If you don't mind, share with me your fitness journeys... What are some healthy recipes that I can try?

Teeze w/eez

I had to tell you about one of the most magical things that I have EVER purchased!

It's simply called teeze w/eez.

You know by now that I'm all about the big hair. When I first saw this at the beauty supply shop I was skeptical, but I'm so glad I gave it a try! Their motto is it's not a comb it's a magic wand (and believe me, it so is)!

Just look at the teeth on this thing, it brings mega volume!

They sell this beaut on Amazon here !
It's a must if you love the big hair! It has made my styling so much easier and really cut down on my tease time!

Do you tease your hair? Do you like the look of big hair? What are some tricks you have picked up throughout the years?

Nars Dolce Vita Blush

Hello Gorgeous!!!
I had to share with you my favorite Fall blush.... I don't think I have ever loved a blush this much! It's NARS Dolce Vita, hello Fall!!!! This color is simply AMAZING!!! 

I bought it at Sephora for $29.00, and I am totally in awe of it! It lasts all day long, it doesn't leave any streaks after a few hours like some blushes that I have tried! The pigmentation is incredible, I just can't say enough about it! I seriously do not know how this one doesn't make it into any of their value sets or holiday palettes...

It's a berry red color and it's very very buildable. I can just do a very light layer and it looks great, but with a few more swipes I can have some high drama... Even in it's more intense color the finish is so amazing that it's virtually impossible to mess up with this shade it's sort of matte without that dry look!

This defiantly gets an A+

What is your favorite blush color? Is this color something you would try?
