Fitness ~ Quest Protein Powder Fuels my Gym Workouts

Quest Protein Powder Smoothies

The moment you realize that your physical journey involves so much more than just hitting the gym, it becomes a part of your everyday existence.  I knew that fruits was going to be a huge part of my diet but I wasn't exactly aware of how I was going to fit them in on a daily basis.  I wanted to have a bowl of fruit everyday for the natural vitamins, minerals and nutrients that my body needed so I was searching for ways to incorporate them into my daily regimen.

Beauty~ Smile Brilliant LED Professional Teeth Whitening System Rview

Smile Brilliant Professional Teeth Whitening SystemI had the opportunity to review the Smile Brilliant LED Professional Teeth Whitening System in the comfortability of my own home.  There was quite a bit of information to read beforehand which was very helpful in determining the correct way to use the products. Inside the package you will find 1) a high intensity LED accelerator light, 2) a teeth whitening gel pin, 3) upper and lower protective trays 4) a spare brush and 5) a detailed instruction brochure.

Beauty ~ Ultraquin Plain Hydroquinone 4% Fade Cream

 Ultraquin Hydroquinone 4% Fade Cream
I sometimes have acne and most often it leaves a scar which always turns darker than my skin.  My scars are very hard to fade and very annoying.  My Dermatologist gave me a prescription that had an active ingredient called Hydroquinone which is known to fade scars and even the skin tone.  It was very expensive, like $50 per tube so I decided to do some online research.

Swatches ~ Urban Decay Moondust Pigment Eyeshadows

Urban Decay has about 10 (maybe more) of these very pigmented eyeshadows and they are absolutely gorgeous. I love dabbing them over a matte shadow of the same color to make them pop. UD has so many eyeshadow palettes with lots of gorgeous colors but they are not travel friendly.  I like to have smaller quads with about 4 shadows and then carry one or two of  pigment shadows to add a little more depth for the evening.  You may or may not know, I do my eyes everyday with shadow.  I always tell people.... I didn't spend 3k to have my hooded eyelids lifted to not enjoy every moment I have with them.

Fashion ~ Gym Day Black & White | Fitness Over 50

Gym Day Black & White  | Fitness Over 50
 Today was arm day in the gym so of course I have to have my arms exposed. It's best to give the muscles room to expand as the latic acid builds up and expands them. Just in case you didn't know, it's the latic acid that causes the muscles to grow..... a little something that I learned from my trainer @fitqueenofhearts on IG.

Swatches ~ MAC Liquid Lipsticks | Swatches on Brown Skin + Video

MAC Liquid Lip Color Swatches on Brown Skin

I thought that I would try a few of these colors just to see what all the fuss was about. I actually ordered 5 of them but only 4 came. Mac shipping dept did something weird, three came in one box and one came in another box and I was like... where's the fifth one??? So I call them and the wanted to resend it but I just asked for a credit because I didn't feel like waiting another 5 days for it to arrive.... I was ready to photograph and swatch these babies!
