20 Minute HIIT Workout at Home

If you follow me on Instagram, you saw I shared one of my favorite at home workouts through Instagram Stories. I have since then completed another workout option as well! I don’t know about you, but I ate quite a few holiday treats and I have a trip to Cabo next month, so this girl has got to get back at it. Haven’t seen it? Follow me on Instagram, and check out my “highlight” reel on my Instagram profile! The written list for exercises is at the end of the workout.

So many of you personally messaged me asking for more—I had no idea it would be such a hit! I’m so glad you all have enjoyed them! I also received quite a few questions on where I like to shop for workout gear. I typically shop at Dick’s, Nordstrom, and Target. I have listed a few of my favorites below–everything is under $50! When I was in high school, I used to run track (sprints and mid-distance). Needless to say, I don’t like gear that will “bother” me during a workout. If you are a no fuss kind of girl, but still want to look cute in your gear—I got you covered! PS – I am 5’2, so these are all petite-friendly options!

Nike Sports Bra

Nike Workout Pants

Adidas Tank

Joy Lab Side Tie Tank

Chaser Shorts

Cami Sports Bra (under $10!)

Make sure to message me on Instagram to let me know what you think of the videos or if you have suggestions for other types of workouts!

Until next time!

Favorite Lip Colors

My Favorite Lip Colors

Lately, I’ve been really into lip colors! I wanted to share with you my favorite lip products and colors—for both every day and for special occasions! PS—stay tuned to the end, you can enter to win $1,000 in PayPal cash at the end of this post! It’s SUPER easy to enter!

Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lip by Bare Minerals
I have raved about this lipstick on my instastories for months. I’m really not into liquid lipsticks—I do not like how drying they are on my lips, or how they feel permanently stained. This product is unique in that it adheres to your lips, but you can still rub your lips together and “feel the lipstick”, if that makes sense! I would not call this an incredibly long wear lip color—more like 3-4 hours with eating and drinking. I absolutely love how the darker colors look on my lips—I always get compliments when I wear “Swank” in particular! Another thing I love is the wand. You have to learn how to apply, as you only need minimal product, but you can really line your lips well and emphasize your shape (or even overline if that’s what you like!) My favorite shades: Icon (nude shade), Flawless (step up from everyday pink), and Swank (the perfect wine lip). Buy at Sephora or Ulta for $19.

Art Stick by Bobbi Brown
Want the lasting power of a liner but the size of a lipstick? This will become your new best friend. This product has been around for a while, and it’s one of my favorites to use for brides. This is what I would call a “chunky” lipliner. This can provide me 3-4 hours of wear and look seamless on the lips. When sharpened, you can define your lips (as if you were using a lip liner). If matted down, you will not have as much precision, but regardless it’s a wonderful product. I also love that it comes with a sharpener just for this product! My favorite shades are Rose Brown, and Dusty Pink for perfect every day colors. You can buy it Nordstrom’s for $28.

MAC Lipstick
It is no surprise that MAC would make the list. I have loved MAC’s lip colors for years! I personally like the satin finish the best—it’s creamy and can be long wear if you just let your lips be. My favorite Satin shades include:

Rebel: Bold wine color with punch of raspberry—which really makes your teeth look white!)
Up the Amp: Super fun purple-pink
Snob: Perfect pale, bubble gum pink
Faux: My favorite every day shade—it darkens your lips, and flatters many skin tones

I also like some of the matte finishes for more bold colors—check out Ruby Woo for the perfect holiday red! You can find MAC online at Nordstrom for $17.

There you have it! A compilation of my tried and true favorites! Comment on Instagram to let me know what you think!

My Microblading Experience

My microblading experience

As you know from my previous post, I had the opportunity to collaborate with Indy Microblading for a microblading procedure. As someone who has half-missing eyebrows and have had to pencil them in for years, I was always self-conscious. I wouldn’t go anywhere without filling them in! Sound familiar? Perhaps you are thinking about getting the procedure done as well, but want to know the full scoop on microblading first– Keep on reading! It’s lengthy, but all very important! Pictures will be included all throughout this post.

First, it is SO important to find someone who is knowledgeable and has experience. Microblading can last 18-24 months, so you want to go to someone who you trust. Carlyn from Indy Microblading blew me away. Due to her medical background, her cosmetic and esthetician background, and not to mention her years of experience, I knew I was in safe hands. Plus, she is so sweet and beyond professional!
