Step Up And Motivate Your Wellness

After Thanksgiving, I realized how much food we had over a period of a few days! Oh my! And I felt it! A few days after Thanksgiving, I started doing yoga since the weather was overcast and raining for a few days! Yoga allows me to stretch, breathe, de-stress, and focus on my own well-being. The holiday season always reminds me to think about my health and improve wherever I can. Are you ready to step up and motivate your wellness? 

Step Up And Motivate Your Wellness

When it comes to health and wellness, it can be overwhelming. Start with small changes. Are there any small changes you can make? Looking for ways to sleep better, reduce headaches, eye strain, or lessen migraines? Need ways to encourage yourself to drink more water? 

Consider your eyes

Pixel Computer Glasses

I never would have thought I would be wearing glasses again. I got LASIK done because I disliked wearing glasses just to see better. However, I find myself loving my Pixel Computer Glasses. They are stylish and easy to wear! Since I like to wear unique colors and styles, I chose beautiful frames and colors to try! 

Luna in Rose Crystal

I chose the Luna in Rose Crystal because they look so sassy and chic! I prefer to wear these during the day or in the evening for a little bit at a time. These are a little snug on me, so I wear them for short spurts! 

Thera in Champagne Crystal

The Thera in Champagne Crystal are the most comfortable on me. Lightweight and easy to wear. I can easily wear these for hours!  Since I work from home, these are perfect for me.

The Luna and Thera glasses, they help ease digital eye strain for me. I’ve been having several issues and one of the major ones was trouble sleeping at night. With blue light blocking glasses, I’ve had fewer headaches and sleeping better

Step up your pillows

Since you want to sleep better and continue the momentum, it’s time to take a look at your pillows. Do they need to be updated? I know I had my favorite pillows but there were nights when I wasn’t sleeping as great as I could be. 

A few months ago, I bought my son and myself some extra pillows for comfort and support. They are also used for decoration. I recently had my son use a real pillow to sleep on. He likes sleeping on the couch and he used to sleep with the decorative pillows or none at all. I want him to get better sleep too!

I wanted to update our pillows with the Juvea Pillow with TENCEL™ Lyocell Fiber Cover. Since I changed out our pillows, he is much happier and wakes up alert and less grumpy! I love that the pillows adjust according to the weather and helps us sleep more comfortably. The pillows allow us to breathe and not wake up sweating. 

I do like to fluff up my Juvea Pillow with TENCEL™ Lyocell Fiber Cover every so often. I find the pillows to be very supportive and allows me to relax and fall asleep quickly! 

Step up your hydration

NAECO Bottles in Gorgonian Purple Brushed Black and Mariana Blue

We all know how important it is to stay hydrated. My son and I pretty much drink primarily water at home. I do have a cup of orange juice with breakfast, enjoy a cup of coffee after I get ready for the day, and for the rest of the day, it’s either water or tea! My son drinks water at home as I rarely buy soda! 

I like to have a reusable water bottle for him to use. He can either use the water bottle or get his own cup of water. I also wanted him to have a reusable bottle to keep in his backpack, so he can drink water on the bus and at school. The NAECO Bottle insulated water bottles are so chic! Not only are they lightweight but they also come in pretty colors! I chose Gorgonian Purple, Brushed Black, and Mariana Blue.

Gorgonian Purple in hand

I love the Gorgonian Purple. I use it to drink from throughout the day. I am so surprised at how it keeps my water cold, even hours of sitting out! I can take my water with me on my walks or to the gym. I also volunteer in my son’s class, so I can take my water with me! 

My son has the option of using the Brushed Black or Mariana Blue. I think the Brushed Black so cool looking! The blue is a beautiful shade too. 

Step up your fashion

DHVANI Naked Collection

As a mom and blogger, I am lucky enough to work from home. I live in leggings and capris. I prefer wearing athleisure during the day. Leggings are so comfortable and allow me to squeeze in a quick yoga workout without really having to change clothes. 

I was sent three pieces from the DHVANI Naked Collection. I chose the Naked Bra, Naked Capris, and Naked Leggings in Grey! My first choice was black, however, they were sold out at the time. 

Naked Bra

A comfortable sports bra is a must when it comes to any workout! The Naked Bra fits comfortably and looks cute!  

Naked Capris

I wanted a pair of capris to wear during the warmer months. I switch to capris when the weather is nice and sunny out. The Naked Capris are so soft and smooth and look great!  

Naked Leggings

The Naked Leggings are my go to during the winter. I prefer to wear leggings when it’s cooler outside. 

Overall, I love the smooth and buttery feel of the clothing. The sizing is a big snug on me, however, I see that as motivation to slim down and focus on my yoga and pilates! All three pieces are perfect to wear for your workouts, running errands, or just around the house! The styles are cute and feel great wearing them! 

Find Better Sleep In 4 Steps

For the last several months, I’ve been feeling stressed, overwhelmed, and restless. There were many nights when I’d wake up throughout the night! I’d eventually fall asleep about an hour or two before I had to get up. To help with everything I am dealing with and to improve my rest, I was searching for alternative help. I didn’t want to turn to sleeping aids. We found natural ways to find better sleep in 4 steps!

Update your shades

Let’s start with cool new shades! My son and I like to wear our cool shades before we leave the house. When I know we’ll be gone for a few hours, I remind him to grab his sunglasses. He knows it is part of our routine. He has one pair of sunglasses now and I wanted him to have a few other pairs to choose from!  It’s always nice to update and try new frames! Always look for sunglasses that offer 100% UVA/UVB protection.

Getting A Better Nights Sleep

Getting A Better Nights Sleep

Beauty Brite Disclosure

What is sleep? I’ve heard it’s that thing you do where you close your eyes and don’t open them for at least 8 hours and feel nice and refreshed when you wake up. Needless to say with four kids under the age of 7, sleep just isn’t something I get a lot of. I love my babies don’t get me wrong but my youngest isn’t a fan of sleep. At this point, I’m pretty sure that coffee bleeds in my veins. Recently I’ve been looking into ways on how to improve your sleep and I’d like to share those tips with you.

Treat Your Skin to K-Beauty Favorites

Treat Your Skin to K-Beauty Favorites

Beauty Brite Disclosure

The term K-Beauty has been buzzing around the beauty landscape for a few years now. There are blogs, YouTube channels, and websites dedicated to bringing these unique beauty products and skincare routine beyond the borders of South Korea. Perhaps it’s because these strange, sometimes esoteric, products can truly transform your skin. For this reason, I always jump at the chance to try new K-Beauty Favorites from brands like Laneige and Mamonde.

K-Beauty Favorites – Laneige

Laneige is probably one of the first K-Beauty brands I sampled. I remember receiving some of their amazing products in a subscription box. Since then, I’ve been continually impressed by the inventiveness and effectiveness of their products. What makes the brand a standout is their Water Science technology, which uses different types of water to address skin concerns.

When the brand asked if I would like to try their Mini Pore Blur Perfector and Heating & Cooling Duo, I immediately said yes.

K-Beauty Favorites Laneige Mini Pore Blue Perfector

The Mini Pore collection is ideal for reducing pore size and controlling oil. The Blur Perfector features a proprietary blend of mint water and pine needle extract. It is designed to hydrate and purify your skin. I like to use this product as my daily moisturizer.

While I don’t have oily skin, I do have some areas where my pores could be smaller. After incorporating the Perfector into my skincare routine over the past month, I can see a difference in my pore size. They aren’t as large, and my skin doesn’t look as dehydrated.

Another component of the Mini Pore collection is the Heating & Cooling Duo. This duo is designed to target congested pores by reducing sebum and removing impurities. If you’ve used any K-Beauty Favorites before, you’ll always notice the prominence of steps in their products. It’s one of my favorite aspects of their skincare routines.

K-Beauty Favorites Laneige Mini Pore Heating & Cooling Duo

The first step of the easy-to-use duo involves applying the Heating Gel. As you massage the gel into your problem areas the product begins to warm up. This helps to loosen all the gunk in your pores. It’s also a good hand/arm workout because the process requires you to perform the massage for 10-15 minutes.

K-Beauty Favorites Laneige Heating & Cleaning Duo

After you rinse off the gel, it’s time for step 2, the Clay Mask. Like the Heating Gel, the Clay Mask packaging features a flat, angled applicator. This makes applying the product to your skin easy and less messy. The creamy cacao walnut mask is designed to absorb oil, remove residue, and leave pores looking smaller.

K-Beauty Favorites Laneige Mask Duo Product Close-ups

Since I have dry, sensitive skin, this mask was a bit too intense for my skin. I often have issues with clay masks as a result. In order to get the benefits, I usually have to find a milder option or adjust wear time. I will definitely keep using this duo because I definitely could tell my pores were cleaned out, but I will have to reduce the amount of time I leave each product on my skin.

K-Beauty Favorites – Mamonde

Another one of my K-Beauty favorites is Mamonde. What I love most about the brand is all of their skincare and make-up are inspired by the power of flowers. In this case, we are talking about the Narcissus flower, which is known for its ability to store water. As someone with very dry skin, I crave hydration and any product that can help my skin hold on to it.

K-Beauty Favorites Mamonde Narcissus Floral Hydro Collection

I was extremely excited to try the Floral Hydro Cream and Eye Gel Cream. After using them for a month, in conjunction with the Laneige Pore Perfector, I’m in love. Both the eye gel and the cream feature a light-weight texture. I use the eye gel both morning and night, and the cream as my nighttime moisturizer. Both feel cooling and comforting to my skin. I always wake-up feel hydrated and refreshed.

Where I’ve noticed the difference the most in around my eyes. The skin looks and feels softer, less bumpy, and less dry thanks to the Mamonde’s Water-Cycle Technology and Micro-Molecular Hyaluronic Acid. The lightweight, gel formula also absorbs quickly so it doesn’t irritate my eyes.

Mamonde was also kind enough to send me their Camellia Flower Lab Essence Sheet Mask and Calendula Flower Lab Essence Sheet Mask. Sheet Masks are one of my K-Beauty Favorites. I’m kind of obsessed with them and can never have enough.

K-Beauty Favorites Mamonde Flower Lab Essence Masks

Of course, I adored using both of them because they left my skin feeling extra hydrated. The Camellia mask is designed to refine the complexion and enhance radiance, while the Calendula mask is designed to soothe and comfort. And because they are both made from Eucalyptus tree pulp they adhere beautifully to the skin. I definitely need more of these masks in my collection.

K-Beauty Favorites Mamonde Mask Use

I highly recommend giving these K-Beauty favorites a try. After trying out all of the products from Laneige and Mamonde for last month or so my skin looks and feels happy and hydrated. I even brought them along on a recent trip to New York and Atlanta, and they held up beautifully in both climates and on three different airplane adventures. They also helped my skin weather a recent cold, which usually leaves me looking haggard.
