A NEW YEAR UPDATE!!

images

Happy New Years everyone!! Where do I start? I pretty much took a long break from posting and I honestly needed it. Last year, I started off with no job and had no idea what I wanted to do. Not going to lie…I was going through a tough time and didn’t see a way out. But I didn’t give up and so I finally found some work and then it lead me to the job I have now!! I was very blessed and got a job with a sports team here in Houston. I am just starting out there but I have my foot in the door. So that is exciting!! I will be coming back and I have a few ideas about this blog and where to take it. For all of you that read this, thank you for sticking around and it means a lot to me!!

 

Cheers to the New Year!!🙂

5 Great workouts for Beginners!

At this point, those of us that have “lose weight and eat healthy as a resolution, have either fallen off or are staying strong! I thought I would list 5 workouts that I felt are great for those that are starting their journey or those that want something new to add.

 

1. 30 Day Shred (30DS)

30DS

Since being on tumblr for the past few years, I have heard a lot of people talk about 30DS and how they used it to start their weight loss journey. It is a 3 level workout dvd. You can spend 10 days on each level or move up whenever you feel like you are ready. Jillian Michaels is a great trainer and will really make you work for it. You will need some weights for this workout dvd. You can find it on Amazon.

2. 21 Day Fix 

21DayFix-whatYouGet_ibk3og

I love this one! My Beachbody coach was the one that helped me figure out that this was the best one for me. I am pretty good at keeping up with workouts but one of my problems is eating right and the right amount. This is great because you get a good idea of what the portion sizes are for your meals and the workouts are challenging but not too hard for a beginner. This program requires weights, a mat and bands depending on if you have no dumbbells.

3.Blogilates(Pop Pilates – 

sge-is

Now if you follow my blog then you already now about this girl. This is Cassey Ho and she is the creater of Pop Pilates! She offers free workout videos on you tube and if you sign up for her newsletter then you get a calender at the start of the month with workouts for each day.

4.Couch 2 5k-

ShowImageThis program is a great way to start running. It is a 9 week program but you can always stay on a week longer if you are not ready to move up to the next one. This is also a free program but some apps that you can add on your phone might want you to buy it.

5.PiYo

PiYo

This program requires no weights and no jumps. So if you have any bad joints then this is a great workout for you. It combines the muscle-sculpting, core-firming benefits of Pilates with the strength and flexibility advantages of yoga. It is made for all levels of fitness so great for everyone.

 

I hope this helps anyone that is looking to find a program and if you have any questions then leave a comment!

Cinderella – M A C Collection

I had this post scheduled for next Tuesday but it will be out in stores this week. And like all MAC makeup collections, they never stay on the shelves for that long.

If you know me, then you know how much I love Disney! I am not a big fan of Cinderella (more of a Maleficent fan) but I still could never pass on something that is Disney related. When I think of Cinderella and makeup, I think of soft/neutral colors and that it really what you get with this line. MAC is known for their bright and shocking colors and so this is little bit different for them. Or for me at least. ha!

Boxy Charm*~ November 2014

I wanted to post about this subscription box because it is amazing! It is a makeup/beauty subscription but what is different is that you get 4-5 full size products! If you are familiar with Ipsy and birch box then you know that they give out sample sizes and sometimes full size.
It does cost more..it is $21 a month but I think it is worth it.

The other reason is that they took the wait list off so you can sign up now!! I had to wait about two weeks before getting a box.

So this is what everyone gets this month…Now some may get different colors.

IMG_2314

1.Ofra Cosmetics Pressed Blush in the shade Paradise Pink- full size – $24.95
2.Kevin Murphy Color Bug in the color white- full size- $20.00-25.00
3.Bellapierre Shimmer Powder in the shade Tin Man- full size- $14.99
4.MicaBeauty Eye Primer- full size – $44.95
5.Tarina Tarantino Eyelicity Glitter Liner in Glitter Mist- full size- $16.00

I put the prices of the items on here so that you can see that you getting your moneys worth. Now if you would like to subscribe to this box then go here.

Bespoke Post: Refresh

We are over a week late! Ram received his Bespoke box a few weeks ago and I just haven’t been able to post yet. If you are seeing the Bespoke Post box for the first time, it is a monthly subscription box that is geared toward guys. They do have a shop that sells other items and even items for women.
Now, what makes them different from other subscription boxes is that you can skip months if you do not like what they have to choose from. They also add new boxes each month and it is best to check each month what they have to offer. Back in October, we checked and he wanted to skip this month. On the 1st of every month, they will choose a box for you and you can change it or skip the month.
Well this month, they picked out the Refresh box and it was actually something that Ram really liked.

The run down of everything he got:

Dopp kit by Blue Claw Co.: Made in America.. has a full grain leather handle and pull tab, bronze rivets and zipper, and a blue nylon lining. Then of course the exterior, made from heavy duty 15oz waxed canvas that has been sourced from family run mills in America.🙂

Shampoo & paste by Mitch : Has a cedar & agave scent

Gold Moss Soap by Dr.Squatch: uses oak moss,freshly ground cocoa and sea salt. (Ram’s favorite)

Face wash by Cremo: pH neutral cleanser that avoids dryness to the face

Lotion & powder by Gold Bond

Toothpaste by Marvis: minty scent and imported from Italy.

Multivitamin by Drinkwel: This is probably the one item he won’t ever use because it is meant for hangovers. But if he was to have a night out and not feeling to well in the morning…just pop these and you should be feeling better!

He pretty much uses everything and is wants to purchase a few of these items in the future.
It is a pretty great box this month and they still have it on the website. If you are interested in this subscription box.. check it out here.

October Loot Crate vs. Nerd Block!

Back again for this month’s unboxing of Loot Crate but this month is a little bit different! Ram was looking to have boxes come to the door for him and so I found Nerd Block. And I thought these two boxes would be great see which one would win for this month! Let’s start off with Loot Crate!! They are both monthly subscription boxes. Loot Crate is $13.37 + $6 Shipping a month and Ram is getting the Nerd Block Classic and thats 19.99 a month then shipping. They also have other boxes that are cheaper and even ones for kids.

If you saw last month’s post, then you know that this month’s theme is Fear.

So this is what I got…..

1.Death by Kitten T-shirt: At first, I wasn’t sure that I would like it. Kittens and a shape of a skull? But after seeing it on people it changed my mind.
photo 11

2.Toxic Candy Waste: This is a bonus item and it seems like it is a nasty version of Warheads….:/ haven’t tried it yet.

3.Sledgesaw Hammer Pen: This is a Loot Crate Exclusive and it is also a pen. I have had this box for a few weeks already and last night was the first night it was opened. Ram figured it out. I was to scared to break it! ha!

4.How to Survive a Sharknado Book: Um… yea so I am guilty with actually seeing the first movie. If you don’t know what this is about. Sci-fi makes some amazing high tech movies that involve creatures that do not exist.😉 And I am a sucker for these movies!

5.”Oh,Brother” art print by JSalvador: This a little print is based on the tv show “The Walking Dead.”

6. The Walking Dead (ISSUE 132): The cover is a Loot Crate Exclusive.

7.Slashes and Bites Tattoos : Yea.. not a fan of fake tattoos anymore but maybe if I was going to dress up…

8. Smite Gift Card with a Jack The Reaper Skin.

What the box looks like in the inside…photo 9

Now on to the Nerd Block! Nerd Block usually does not do themes but I guess because it being October they did. They teamed up with Kevin Smith and it was Marvel and DC collide!

7. And save the best for last(or at least to me): Deadpool unmask funko pop!

I liked the kitten shirt and pen from loot crate but I am not a big zombie person so I think this month Nerd Block won. Now…I did get an email on next month’s Lootcrate and the theme is battle!

2bc471d2-1bf1-4533-b8f5-d260429b7d8f
It says that it will include exclusive Mega-Man and Assassin’s creed collectibles, Halo,Street fighter and more surprises!! So I am excited!! If you want to subscribe to Loot Crate then go here.

If you like to subscribe to nerd block then go here. Also, 1 out of 7 nerd block boxes will have a Bruce Campbell autograph! (not sure why they didn’t do that for october or their Horror block box but whatever)
