Beating the Heat!

Most important towel in my Gym bag when I got to Hot Yoga class is my Furious Fit Gear Cooling Towel!!! I can not believe how awesome it is, it stays wet/damp even when it's in a hot room. I like to use it if I am feeling really hot or want to towel off/cool off my face in yoga class. Considering the style of hot yoga keeps the room anywhere between 90 to 105 degrees with humidity anywhere between 40 to 65% on! EEEEK

Peeling the layers away

What is Earthen Instant Peel?

According to the website:

"InstantPeel is naturally formulated to peel away dead skin cells, debris and impurities, revealing your skins natural glow, youth and vibrancy. Your skin texture is dramatically improved and becomes more radiant with each use of InstantPeel.

InstantPeel stops working once all the debris and dead skin has peeled away, revealing your natural, healthy, glowing skin."

Instructions on How to Use Instant Peel 
  1. Take an InstantPeel packet into the shower. Steam your face for about five minutes, so that skin is moist and supple.
  2. Open the packet and squeeze a small amount of InstantPeel onto your fingertips. Massage firmly but gently onto your face and neck, avoiding the delicate skin surrounding the eyes. Using strong strokes, rub InstantPeel in a back and forth motion onto your skin until individual peels of dead skin emerge.
  3. Continue this firm rubbing motion onto the cheeks, chin, nose, forehead and neck areas until dead skin cell peeling ceases. Use contents of packet for more InstantPeel as necessary.
  4. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. If any residue remains cleanse with a gentle cleanser. Discard packet after one-time use.
  5. Protect your silky new layer of skin with a moisturizer.

DIY: Office Desk into Tv Stand

Before and After shot

Last night was our first night home from an adventure to the wonderful Midwest and apparently the man was inspired to do a small home project. 

For a good chunk of the year we have had the tv in the back room, which we called the den that has his computer and a loveseat. Pretty much he would fiddle on his computer, doing homework while I watched tv. Or we would sit together and veg out watching whatever seemed like a good idea at the time. And since it';s mostly him and me we didn't think it too big of a deal.

With the summer months although the back room is cool, it's not nearly as cold as the living room, which is where we spent most of our time as of the past few months with the AC going. So we would watch Netflix or amazon prime on one of our laptops and cuddle and struggle with sound and vision.

Thus came his brilliant idea yesterday of moving the tv in the living room, in front of our fireplace and making the decision to not have a fire this winter...which really is okay with me...at least this year. 

We made a trip to Salvation Army and found a desk with drawer for 20 bucks. And he thought it would be perfect as our tv stand because the tv needed a little lift.

Thus we did a little video check it out here   https://youtu.be/MksOUzIm-t4

Here my man is showing off his #earjoy Ear buds that he used while creating our tv stand

The Road to white Teeth

Be Live Coco Charcoal

Who doesn't want whiter teeth? I know I sure do.
I've strived to achieve a mouth full of whiter-than-white ivories all of my life.
I now have decently white teeth, but getting there was only half the battle. Maintaining them is a whole other beast.
To keep my teeth looking their best, I brush them once sometimes twice a day with whitening toothpaste using an electric toothbrush as it is suppose to be better for your gums and really get the teeth clean. Plus it has a little timer that goes off, so I know when it is time to move to the next section.
My routine doesn't always work the way it's supposed to, so sometimes my teeth are left looking a little yellow due to all the coffee and sometimes soda I sip on the regular. Mostly its coffee tho...call me a coffee addict.

The Be Live Coco Charcoal Teeth Whitening Power isn't your average, every day charcoal. It'activated charcoal, which is designed for medicinal use. Basically this type of charcoal is safe for you to use. If you digest some, it's not a big deal.
Because the activated charcoal has adhesive properties, it's supposed to work really well at ridding your teeth of just about every stain you can think of.

I will be doing it tonight along with my boyfriend to test it out and see if there is a once time use noticeable difference, more than likely it will be filmed for the youtube channel so keep an eye out for that. 

We be masking

Vivo Per Lei Retinol Wrinkle Solution Mask

I have been obsessed with masking this past year and it's probably a good thing, I am 34 on the verge of 35 and from what I understand this is normally the time frame where hormone levels shift in the female body.

If you have been following me on this blog entry journey you have seen me discuss the different supplements and vitamins I have been taking as I have gotten older, due to injury and what not.

And the biggest thing that I will continue to focus on is using high quality products for my skin, which is why I was highly happy with the results I got from this wrinkle solution mask.

The other night for my youtube channel, I did a get unready for me which is always a little interesting because you are choosing to take off your face in front of the camera. I used the mask for the first time on camera, so if you are interested in watching my real, first reactions to the product I suggest watching the link below.


Overall I was very very happy to see the results from one usage of this product, my skin was soft, shiny and that was before I even added any serums or moisturizers.

Let there be Light....in my closet

I am truly so thankful that I decided to listen to my friend one day back in 2010 and sign up for Amazon Prime. I didn't realize it then, but looking back at my transaction/order history since late 2016 I am ever so grateful she told me to try it out.

Newest find from Amazon has been the Remote Wireless Closet Lights Pictured below me holding the remote and a light I had not yet put up.

Get yours Here

The irony had it not been the recent change of shifts for work for the man, I wouldn't have actually made the decision to pick these up. Currently we are on exact opposite schedules, when I am up for the day and at work or school. He is sleeping and vice versa, oh the joys of adulting.

Due to this reason, I found it difficult to get dressed or feel confident in picking out my outfit for the day, as I was using my cell phone light. Or using the light from the open bathroom door window, hoping that the light itself coming into the room and giving me a small view of my closet side wouldn't wake up.

Hence why the closet light is a huge success and totally worth the money spent on it. I can literally push a button and the light that I attached above the center of my closet shelf turns on, with two different levels of low or high. So that I can see into closet and decide on what I should wear that day.

Having the remote makes it easy as well, with a push of the button from across the room. I don't have to worry about waking up the man, and the light is bright enough that I can actually make my way across the room (from the other side) without tripping over our dog (or anything else that happens to be in the way of me walking around.

Here is the light with the actual room light on 

Verses the main room light off and just the closet light on from across the way

I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for something easy to put up and smaller space that needs more light. The actual pack itself comes with 3 lights and the remote control. Each light uses 3 AAA batteries and the remote control uses 2 AAA batteries.

Feet are important

Recently I have been on a stricter budget due to the boyfriend being out of town for work (traveling) so I have had to cut back some of the luxuries that I did get to enjoy with him. Once a month sometimes every 3 weeks, we would go to the nail salon together and get pedicures.

Considering he wears boots suffers from ingrown toe nails, I understand why he does. For me, being a yoga teacher I wear flip flops quite a bit and no shoes, while in the yoga studio class room or gym class room. So I have really tough calluses that I have to combat with.

The one issue I have with going to the nail salon is they do what they can to make my calluses go away, but my feet only stay soft for the max 3 days if I remember to wear socks and shoes more regularly.

So I spend, well rather he spends as it tends to be his treat to me, 20 to 29 bucks (especially if we get the calluses remover spa package) and it doesnt last very long


Thus I did a little research and some amazon shopping and found this duo that allows me to take care of my own feet at home for a great price. I already have a foot spa at home, more often or not I get a little lazy and prefer to have someone else do the hard work of callsus remover and cutting my toenails.

With the purchase of the double side callus remover I figure I could try it out myself and see how I did. Below is the items I used to make my own spa night earlier this past week. I also did a 7 day foot peel that I had purchased on Amazon as well in addition to a foot soak and scrub with the tools. And I am happy to say it was a great night, both my feel were soft and I saved money!

I would highly recommend purchasing the duo, as it saves money and if you are like me with a busy schedule having to dedicate 60 to 75 minutes of my day to go get a pedicure is a bit annoying.
