The Summer Tag

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I saw my friend Rachel do this tag and thought it would be a perfect addition to my blog!
This tag was created by Makeup-Pixi3 and she had a few rules you need to follow if you
decide to do this tag:

"Feel free to consider yourself tagged as well, IF you do it, please remember to credit me as the source of the tag, and feel free to use the image above too.  Either tweet me or (ideally) leave a comment with your post URL of the tag, and I'll add it to the bottom of this post so others can find all the summer tag posts :)  Lets get on with the questions"

1.  What's your favorite thing about Summer?
My favorite things about summer and going to the beach and BBQs.

2.  Do you have a favorite Summer drink?
My favorite summer drink is the Caramel Frappacino at Starbucks. I love to treat myself on occasion and get this drink as it has a LOT of calories and isn't the greatest thing to drink.

3.  Is there a location you like to go to each Summer?
I love going to the beach, whether it is a lake or the ocean. I find it most relaxing to be by the water, listening to my iPod or reading a book.

4.  Favourite makeup look for Summer?
Very simple! Lately, I have been wearing BB Cream, Powder, and mascara.

5.  Dresses or skirts?
I love to wear dresses over the summer because they are so easy! You can easily dress them up with a scarf or jewelry.

6.  Sandals or ballet pumps?
I own way too many pairs of sandals because I can get away with wearing them to both the office and on the weekends.

7.  Do you prefer to wear your hair up or down for Summer?
I tend to wear my hair up most of the time because it gets extremely frizzy when the humidity starts getting crazy over the summer.

8.  Deep smokey eyes or bold lips?
Neither in the summer.  I try and keep my makeup simple so it doesn't melt off my face.

9.  Favourite perfume for Summer?
I don't tend to change up my fragrances over the summer but I start wearing more of my body mists from Bath & Body Works or Victoria's Secrets because they are lighter.

10.  Last but not least, favourite music for Summer?
My taste in music never changes, but I will also be listening to something on Pandora.

My First Advocare Haul!

This post is not sponsored by Advocare. I am not affiliated with Advocare.

Everybody wants to get the summer body and try all sorts of diets to try and get there. I got motivated to start working out and eating healthier from my sister and different people I follow on social media. I decided to try a few products by Advocare. Advocare is a health and wellness company, that offers weight-loss, nutrition, and performance products.  I had heard about Advocare from a co-worker and also from watching the amazing Marissa Lace on YouTube. I saw what a difference Advocare has made in her life and others and wanted to see if I could benefit from their products.
Meal Replacement Shake 
I ordered a box of the Chocolate Meal Replacement shakes. Basically, you substitute a shake for one of your meals, similar to other programs, like Isagenix.  
These shakes are only 220 calories and contain 24 grams of protein! 
They are a balanced meal and full of nutrients. 
I am going to eat these for my breakfast.

This product was also recommended to me and is one of Advocare's top sellers. MSN MAX C is a multi nutrient dietary supplement, which aims to provide appetite control,  maximize weight management and provide nutrients. You take one colored packet before breakfast or lunch and also one white packet with breakfast or lunch. I will be honest these are huge pills but I am willing to take them to help with my overall health and fitness.

Spark Energy Drink Mix in Fruit Punch
This is literally exactly what it is called, an energy drink mix. It is similar to Crystal Light or other flavored-drink supplements. Each pouch is only 45 calories and is supposed to help sharpen your mental focus and give you energy. I have tried this before and didn't notice the energy boost but I did feel more focused while working on various tasks at the office. I was able to try the Pink Lemonade flavor and wasn't a huge fan. I heard that Fruit Punch was delicious, so I decided to try it out!

If you are interested in purchasing from Advocare, you can buy their products on Amazon or via an Advocare distributor.

My First Memebox: Memebox #11 Unboxing

*affiliate links below*

Today I am doing an unboxing of my very first Memebox, Memebox Global #11. If you're never head of Memebox, they are another beauty subscription service, but they include Korean-beauty products in their boxes. They have many different box options, including skincare, makeup, body, etc. Their boxes also come at different price points, based on how many products you receive in the box. 
Here are the products I received

Dear by Enprani: Moistful Booskin $31 USD
This is supposed to be used as a toner and skin booster, thus being the first product in your skincare routine. I am eager to try out this product and see the results.

 Too Cool for School Dinoplaz Cinema City CC Cream $30 USD
I have always wanted to try a CC Cream and this one has a adorable packaging. 
This is supposed to brighten your skin, improve  your complexion, and protect from the sun. 
Witch's Pouch Radiant Lollitint #3 Funky Balloon $14 USD
I am not a huge lip product fan, so I might give this away to one of my sisters or my mom

llli Fresh Moisturizer Body Lotion $24 USD
This has a nice scent and am looking forward to applying to my arms and legs

Hope girl Nail Travel Bling Bling Set 
This contains three small nail polishes and I will try them and do a separate review

Purederm Botanical Choice Pure Solution Eye Cream $34 USD
I have been dying to get my hands on an eye cream and this one looks promising! I will definitely post a review once I have used this product for a while, I just hope it doesn't break me out!

llli Green Tea Brightening Mask $3 USD
When I first saw this in the box, I was very confused as to what I got. It is a 100% cotton mask drenched with green tea, amino acids, minerals, and organic acids. It is supposed to refresh dehydrated skin. I am looking forward to this mask!

Total Memebox Worth - $136 USD
Membox Price - $28 USD

Overall impressions: Very excited to try everything I received except the lip product. I thought this was a very well-rounded box with products from many different areas of beauty. I am definitely going to purchase from Memebox in the future. The only downside is that since the boxes come shipped from Korea, they take approximately 15-25 business days to arrive on your doorstep. To purchase a Memebox, just go to their website: http://us.memebox.com/

Current Beauty Favorites [May 2014]

photo edited using Picmonkey

Hi everybody! I really cannot believe how fast the month of May flew by! It's already the time for prom and graduations and all that jazz! I wanted to keep my "favorites" simple this month by doing a current favorites post. I don't tend to change up my routine very often I thought I would just share my current favorite beauty products for the month of May!

Urban Decay Vitamin-Infused Complexion Prep Spray
I have had this spray in my collection for quite some time now. I got a sample back in the winter when Placed an online order with Sephora and fell in love. I don't really use this as a setting spray but I use it under my moisturizer to help combat the redness on my face. I also notice it does help with oil control.

Maybelline Baby Lips
I don't think I have to say how much I love these lip balms. They are a great alternative to using a Chapstick because they smell lovely and some have a slight color tint. I have way too many in my collection and always carry them in my everyday purse to work, running errands, etc.

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
I have also had this powder in my collection for a very long time. I use it on an almost daily basis to help control my oily skin. I use the Transparent shade because it looks nicest on my skin.

Sephora eyeshadow in Aspen Summit
I received this tiny little eyeshadow and a makeup swap and I am glad I did! It works wonders in the inner corner. It helps me look more awake in the morning when I am still sleepy! It doesn't have fallout throughout the day and the pigmentation holds if you use an eyeshadow primer.

NYX HD Eyeshadow Primer
How did I not use this primer before? This primer works better than any eyeshadow primer I have ever used, including the Urban Decay eyeshadow primer. It has a super thick formula which just holds your eyeshadow in place all day long. Plus, it's super inexpensive at the drugstore!

Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara
I just did a whole blog post explaining how much I enjoy this product, check it out here.

Aveeno ultra-calming makeup wipes
These have been  favorite makeup wipe of mine for a long time! My sister actually let me try hers and that's how I came to love them! These do a great job at taking all of your makeup off. They do not irritate my skin nor do they hurt my eyes. They are also inexpensive for makeup wipes.

Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette
There is a reason why Urban Decay is so popular these days. They make some of the best makeup palettes and eyeshadows in my opinion. These matte eyeshadows just glide onto your eyelids and don't budge all day long! This palette is full of amazing natural shades that can be worn during the day or made more bold for a night out. I use it everyday and it was a great investment.

30-Day AB Challenge [June Fitness Goal]

So, I can admit that I have gained some weight over the past year. I tried to challenge myself to workout and eat better a couple month ago and I failed miserably. A friend of mine on Facebook joined this challenge and I figured, I should try it too! There really is no reason why I can't find time to workout and this challenge is perfect! It only requires a little bit of work each day and I think this is something I can stick to. Of course, I will need to limit the amount of "junk foods" while doing this challenge, to really get the full potential out of it.  If you're interested, here's a link to the Facebook event: 

Have you ever participated in one of these "30 day challenges"? What were your results?
