WHAT I'VE BEEN LOVING THIS PAST MONTH...


The Most Comfortable Sneakers Ever...
I was way overdue to buy a new pair of sneakers.  Is it sad to say I would rather spend my money on eyeshadow than footwear??  But I desperately needed a new set of kicks thus I ventured to Dick's Sporting Goods a couple weeks ago and picked up these Nike Free 5.0 Sneakers.  They are perfect for lifting and my gym workouts and placing my foot into these is like stepping unto a cloud.  These sneakers provide such great cushioning and are so lightweight that it doesn't even feel like you're wearing anything on your feet.  They also come in oodles of amazing color combinations, and I love this Light Aqua offering I chose.  Long story short if you need a new pair of sneakers try these Nikes out.  

An Amazing Natural Skincare Line...
Live-Live & Organic is an amazing store in NYC that offers organic and vegetarian health products.  (If you are in Manhattan you need to check them out!)  They offer so many excellent brands and services at their store and were kind enough to send me three products from their Bee Yummy Skincare Line to try out.  I tried their Bee Yummy Honey Mask, Bee Yummy Eye & Lip Cream, and Bee Yummy Skin Food.  Omg these products were amazing! I found the lip balm very moisturizing and it smelled like Christmas (balsam fir needles is one of the main ingredients!) and found the skin food moisturizer did a great job of re-hydrating my skin.  The standout for me was the Bee Yummy Honey mask.  I wore this mask overnight and felt like I woke up with a new face.  It was seriously that good.  So if you're in the market for some natural, organic, and preservative free skincare definitely check this company out!

My Breakfast Concoction...
Ok, so I have been making this for breakfast every day for the past month or so and I am obsessed.  I start out by toasting half of an Ezekiel Sprouted Whole Grain English Muffin.  Then I top that with  1/4 smashed avocado sprinkled with crushed red pepper flakes & sea salt and finish with an over easy egg.  Omg when the creamy yolk mixes with the smooth avocado and toasted muffin...magic happens.  It also has a great kick from the crushed red pepper! I can't get enough.  It fills me up just the right amount and I love pairing it with some fresh fruit in the morning for a balanced meal to start my day.  Definitely try it out!

The YouTube Videos That Get Me Thinking...
So in the morning when I am eating breakfast and getting ready for work I usually like to troll around YouTube and watch a video or two.  Lately I have been loving the Ted Talk YouTube Channel.  The videos don't drag on (all are less than 20 mins), and I find them so interesting and motivating.  Some of my recent favorites have been this fascinating David Blaine one he put out in 2010, this talk on motivation in the workplace, and this fascinating look at the power of our body language.  Do you guys have any favorite Ted Talks?

The Perfect Nude Lip...
I probably never would have stumbled upon this L'Oreal offering on my own, but I was reading beauty blog BYRDIE and one of the editors quoted this shade has her ultimate nude lip color.  The L'Oreal Colour Riche Lip Balm in Caramel Comfort lived up to all expectations and it really is the perfect nude shade for fair skinned girls.  It's a bronzy nude that's not too cool toned, and it leaves a gorgeous shimmer and gloss on the lips.  I also love how moisturizing it is.  This has been my go to lip product lately and it hasn't left my handbag since I purchased it.  Plus it's only $7!
