Mark your calendars, grab some champs, and get ready for some real + raw girltime.  We did Facebook Live a few weeks ago to launch Whit’s YouTube Channel and had a blast. It’s LIVE.. meaning no editing. What you see is what you get! Her hairdryer broke and had to end up wearing a towel on her head. Classic! We’ll wrap up my lifestyle series with my final morning routine tips so be ready to ask us anything!  My 2017 word is AUDACIOUS:: meaning to show a willingness to take bold risks so here’s me doing just that. Wish me luck!

Tell your friends to come hang with us!

Hey DFW Dolls! 

Holly Henderson, owner of Zen Den— a soothing space at The Village Salons in Lakewood, is offering my friends & followers 20% off any facial plus a free eye treatment for the month of November. With the busy holiday season approaching, this is the perfect way to pamper yourself and/or treat a friend. Great holiday gift idea, too!

Last week, I got Holly’s signature Gold Facial and it felt amazing. I was so “zen” I think I actually fell asleep for a bit! This unique treatment is the gold version of her “Red Carpet” facial. Combining our Intraceuticals Oxygen infusion, Environ customized peel, Micro-current and Atoxalene infusion to leave you refreshed, rejuvenated and revitalized! I’ve never had facials like Holly’s and the technology is truly the latest and greatest. 

INTRACEUTICALS FACIALS 

Australian based company, founded in 2002 as a result of research into various applications for oxygen. Intraceutical facials revolutionized the use of hyaluronic acid as both an exceptional hydrator and effective delivery system for specific concern vitamins.  The brand also includes a cast of highly effective skincare products designed to maximize the treatment and help balance and correct skin concerns, such as dehydrated, anti-aging, pigmented and problem prone skin. It is essential to complement each other and enhance the results of Intraceutical facials.

REJUVENATE OXYGEN INFUSION

The Intraceuticals treatment application method utilizes hyperbaric oxygen to promote the delivery of hyaluronic acid and vitamins into the skin. the serum applicator creates a hyperbaric pressure bubble to initiate osmotic hydration and ingredient delivery. The elemental nature of oxygen inspires, heals and invigorates.

environ

ENVIRON FACIALS

This scientifically formulated skincare system was developed by world-renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Des Fernandes. Environ was born out of Dr. Fernandes’ study of mechanisms of skin and skin cancer as well as retinyl palmitate (vitamin A). His research showed that photo-aging is a vitamin deficiency skin disease caused by exposure to light and free radicals, which destroy vitamins A, C and E and beta-carotene in the skin. Vitamin A is known as the skin normalizer and is responsible for maintaining healthy-looking skin. Environ facials home care products deliver intensive treatments for problematic skin, scarring, pigmentation, rosacea, fine lines, skin laxity, sun damage, photo-aging and maintenance for healthy skin.

ACNE VITAMIN TREATMENT

Created to purify, exfoliate and calm acne, scared and deeply congested skin.  This treatment focuses on gently removing bacteria and debris, to allow your pores to absorb vitamin enriched nutrients into the skin for a glowing complexion. 

VITAMIN C INTENSE PEEL: Rx for sun damage!

A treatment specifically formulated to target sun damaged, pigmented skin and to aid in reduction of fine lines, broken capillaries and diffuse redness.

As I mention in the video, please release any unloving thoughts about yourself and begin the daily mirror work of telling yourself you love yourself! Focus on your strengths and unique qualities that make you beautiful. The moment you are about to cut yourself down or tell yourself you are stupid- STOP! Replace those abusive thoughts with loving ones and watch your life transform.

I LOVE YOU, TOO.

L’OREAL LOVE: Spring Skin Spruce Up

Happy Fab Friday, Gorgeous!

With the change of seasons and new fashion trends, I am always inspired to try new makeup and skincare products as well. I’ve been using Revlon Photoready Foundation and Makeup For Ever HD Invisible Cover Foundation for the past few years and they are both still fabulous, but being the researcher I am I decided to try the  L’Oreal foundations. This drugstore diva went on the hunt!

I have been hearing so much about the Armani foundations, but ummmm…with the price tag over $60 I decided to find the drugstore equivalent. You can buy a concealer, powder,  foundation, blush and mascara at Target for the same amount. I found out that the L’Oreal Group owns Giorgio Armani Beauty and that means there may be some cross-over formulations. I was right! I tested the Armani foundation at Sephora  and the coverage and texture is almost identical to the L’Oreal Magic Nude Liquid Powder Skin Perfecting Foundation. Who else loves the $10.99 price tag at Target?

Because I deal with puffy under eyes and dark circles, I am always trying new concealers hoping to find one that totally deals with this problem area. I am yelling HALLELUJAH from the mountain top for the L’Oreal Visible Lift Blur Concealer. The “blur” effect is real, sista! It’s super blendable so you’ll never have the raccoon look plus the “lift” property gives your under eye a more youthful look. Completely in love with this concealer! The L’Oreal Visible Lift Blur Foundation rocks, too.

Here’s more love for L’Oreal… my new favorite foundation is the True Match LUMI Healthy Luminous Foundation! It takes 5-10 years off the look of your skin. Yes, I’m serious. It’s made of 40% pure water for all day hydration and filled with Antioxidants, Vitamins C & E for even skin tone and texture. The “Liquid Light” Technology gives you an instant, luminous glow! HOLLA! I love that it has SPF in it for extra protection as well.

 Have you tried any of these L’Oreal products?

Give us your 2-cents and make sure to share this blog with your sistas!

Spring is around the corner so make sure to spruce up your makeup bag and chunk any old products. It’s the perfect time to try some new things.

MOTIVATE: Burn Fat Instead of Adding Fluff This Holiday

holiday-cookies-carbs-420x420

Who’s slacking off from their workouts lately? ME! The chill & drizzle has put a damper on my outdoor power walks and I’m not a big fan of the treadmill. There are chocolate chip cookies in a holiday tin calling my name from the kitchen counter and I’ll be decorating sugar cookies tonight with my bestie and her triplets. Because of all the festivities and lack of motivation to workout, it’s easy to add some holiday fluff so that means we start the new year busting out of our skinny jeans. We don’t have to give in! Being mindful of the amount of sweets we’re eating and making the effort to snack on more fat burning foods will keep us feeling healthy and fit during this time of indulgence! I’ll do more indoor workouts from my playlist on YouTube as well even though it’s easier to curl up on the couch. M O T I V A T E!

Here are 10 fat burning foods to stock up on:

1) Almonds with skins: Reduces cravings and builds muscle.

2) Salmon & Tuna: Fires up fat burning and makes you feel full longer.

3) Peanut Butter: Burns fat and builds muscle.

4) Spinach &Dark Green Veggies: Improves workout recovery, burns fat & fights free radicals.

5) Green tea: Fires up fat burning.

6) Eggs: Builds muscle & burns fat.

7) Grapefruit: Regulates blood sugar and metabolism. Lowers insulin. There’s nothing better than a fresh Ruby Red grapefruit, but my hubby & I also love the Del Monte Sunfresh slices with no added sugar for ease.

8) Chili Peppers & Cayenne Powder: Revs up metabolism.

9) Whole grains (quinoa, brown rice, whole grain cereals): Prevents the body from storing fat in small servings. These Eat Chia Bites are a perfect snack made with quinoa, brown rice & chia. (They will be in the stocking stuffer giveaway!!)

10) Berries: Prevents cravings.

Not only will these foods burn fat, but they will help prevent that lethargic feeling we get from high sugar & high carb holiday treats! Allow yourself to enjoy the season just add in more of these healthy foods to balance things out.

Wishing you a beautifully blessed week ahead!

What are your traditions? Please share! 

We’ll announce the SOS Stocking Stuffer Winners on Christmas Eve.

Love, Tiff
