Summer Lovin

I have to say I am hating summer right now. So it will not be on my list of favorites. It has just been too hot for too long! We also have air conditioner issues so this summer has not been fun! But, enough with the negatives. I wanted to share a few items I have been lovin!

First off I started a new workout program called 10 minute Trainer. It is a DVD series. My friend's trainer has Challenge groups on FB and I joined one. I was doing so good and lost 6 inches and then labor Day hit and I fell off the wagon. I am getting back on though! I love this because if you are a busy woman you know how hard it is to fit in a workout at the gym. With this I do it on my break and am done in about 15 mins(including warm-up and cool-down). Weight loss is such a daily struggle for me and I am so glad I found this. I do have to say the guy who does the videos is super cheesy but he makes me laugh and I get a kick out of it.

The rest of what what I am lovin' right now are beauty products. Surprise, surprise. I have ventured out and have tried quite a few new products. The first new items that I am loving are Maybelliene's Color Tattoo 24hr Cream Gel Shadow. My favorite shade is Bad to the Bronze. If you have never tried cream shadows...you should! Sometimes all I wear is just one shade all over my lid and it is super pigmented. They go on creamy and dry to a beautiful finish. They last all day too! Especially with the addition of my new favorite below!
 
 
 
 
I was pretty skeptical of lid primers. I really thought they were just an extra product that was really not needed. Boy, was I wrong. I got a sample of the "Eden" primer and it kept my shadow on all day. It looked the same at 10am as it did at 10pm. It would be great too if your eyeshadow tends to crease. This is something I will definitely buy a full size of soon!
 



 This little beauty is a gorgeous highlighter by The Balm. Their packaging is super cute and the names of each product are so clever. You can click on the pic above to check out their site. This doesn't look like much in the pan but when you add it to your face it is a gorgeous champagne color. I add it at my temples and make a "C' shape down to cheek bone. I also swipe it down my nose.It adds just a bit of sparkle and who doesn't love a little sparkle:)

I have many many more that I love but this is just a few! I hope you are all enjoying the last bit of your summer. Back to school is upon us. I am hoping to blog more frequently. I have so many posts that need to be finished up. Many are more personal and it seems like those people like to read the most. Have a great day!!!!
