What a day today will be! Meetings, lunch, putting out fires and then going to one of a few Halloween parties! This season, I will be going as myself with fab outfits and fun accessories! When it comes to looking amazing, it's about prepping as well as soothing your skin after you have placed makeup to enjoy a night out! Prior to getting a phenom look, make sure that you begin to drink your beauty in by enjoying Functionalab's Detox Formula Beauty Dose! You can also try out a number of other beauty loves that you'll enjoy having in your daily routine! When you have finished your look and are ready to come back to yourself, try one of 2 scrubbers - I'm loving St Ives' apricot scrub or Fresh's Sugar Face Polish which leaves your skin feeling succulent. Finally, make your skin super happy by moisturizing your face with Sibu Beauty's Daily Facial Cream that I use everyday.
The workouts continue as I'm inching closer to the completion of Deadline Fitness, by Celebrity Trainer - Gina Lombardi. I love working out and with so much going on, I had to change up a few things so I've added yoga into the mix. Since I have taken it with various instructors, I've learned about things that are perfect for me! I'm a huge fan of placing oils in the palm of my hands before I begin to do yoga. The aromatherapy element that this provides is amazing and I'm a fan of lavendar which helps me to calm down and to relax that much more. I never know where I have to go after yoga so along with the mat, I always have a bag so that I can continue to do whatever. I'm also a fan of Functionalab's supplements as I have been taking them on and off since last year. I love the beauty tonic and it's easy to take when you're on the go!
For those that are still on the fitness kick with me or have recently picked it up, continue on as I'm sure you're seeing the results and loving it. Event when I fly out on the 28th to meet up with the rest of the bloggers that participated in this challenge, continue on as it's nice to stay fit and it gives you an extra boost in your day!
Last night, I celebrated an anniversary of sorts. About a year ago, I went to my first Lippe Taylor event for Clearasil at Bowlmor Lanes. Not only was I introduced to how a product that I grew up with had taken steps to being something that I should be using now at the ripe age of 30 but I was introduced to a group of girls that I can call friends! Now I'm not saying that I don't love the PR firms that I work with but the LT team is definitely a favorite and as I headed over to Chelsea Piers Sky Rink, I expected nothing less of an amazing night!
Keren (our very own Life Balance Editor), came with me as we were both going to learn about Shaklee, a company that creates supplements that are organic for your body and that the US Snowboard and US Ski team use to ensure that they have their daily nutrients! In case you're wondering, the clip above included members of the Lippe Taylor team in addition to members of the US Ski and Snowboard teams. They will not find out until the beginning of next year if they made it to the Olympic team! So we very well could have been talking with people that will be on the team.
I loved being able to chat with Michelle Roark who is not only won the World Cup Championship in the 2006 Olympics but she is a Chemical Engineer for her own perfume line, Phi-nomenal (there will be more on her line in a future beauty post on Thurs). She was super spunky and listening to her you really understood what it was like to be a vegetarian and traveling to countries where they eat a lot of meat. Michelle was excited that she was able to have a product that would nourish her and allow her to be at her top performance.
Now Shaklee has had a 30 year relationship with the US Ski team and last night they introduced chews that you can eat to give you a burst of energy. These lemon lime pieces gave lots of energy while giving you a boost! This boost came in handy when we all played Wii's new ski game and I'm happy to report that Keren took the bronze and also a signed Wii by various members on the team! Even if you're not an Olympian hopeful, Shaklee has a large book of supplements that help you in your everyday life. Many of you remember from my previous posts about Glowelle and Functionalab, that I'm on a quest to find the perfect tablets that are perfect for my lifestyle. One of the items that I'm eager to try is the Vitalizer + Iron. I definitely need more Iron and this is geared towards women, look out for a future post where I will share with you how I'm doing and I will also cover other items as well! What a great event and way to get introduced to this brand that's new to me!
There's something in the air! I love the fact that I have been able to try a number of items that are good for your body and overall health! As always, the links within the spread can be clicked on. In the spring, I introduced you to Functionalab which allows you to take various supplements that are targeted to your general health and of course specific areas that are of interest to you. I love that they have a concierge service that allows you to always have a beauty consultant that you can talk to! Right after I came off of my month long Functionalab #02, I went on to Glowelle which is a beauty supplement that allows you to have your beauty powder put right into your drink. I love that I can drink this and run around town! Votre Vu is a beauty brand that has created Snapdragon which has various healthy vitamins included within a beauty mix; however, you have to drink this within 7 days or so and it definitely has to be refrigerated as well! Fresh Diet is an amazing food delivery service where you can plan out your meals iunin advance to come to your home or wherever you are! The meals include a breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack and dessert. Not only is this a perfect way to maintain or lose weight but it's nice to have fresh ingredients and meals that have your friends asking you how did you come up with such an assortment of foods! Finally, one of my favorite items has been Matcha Source! I love that this green tea can be a latte, used within a sauce or even used as a frosting as well. With so many nutrients that are found within matcha, you'll want to incorporate this within your daily routine. Take some time to check out many of these great supplement alternatives!
I love it! So I've been taking the tablets for a few weeks from Functionalab ever since I had a personal consultation at Henri Bendels! If you're not familiar, you should read my first post about this amazing brand which posted a few weeks ago! It took a little getting used to the fact that each day, I was taking a pack in the day and in the evening; however, I have to say that I haven't felt tired and I do feel that I am benefiting from all of these great vitamins. Not only have I enjoyed taking the 2 Pack, I have begun thinking about other items that would be great to take within my daily regimine! Functionalab looks to building you from the inside out by consulting you with what you do on a daily basis. I think this is the best way to go about it so that your body begins to get a lot of nutrients that it needs and you can also pick what you would like to focus on and ingest those pills as well. Now it has been a few weeks but yesterday morning my consultant just emailed me asking whether I was ok and to feel free to follow up to ask her any questions that I may have! What a great way to make sure that you're still where you want to be or to see if there are other items of interest! Functionalab is definitely something you should consider to incorporate within your daily routine!
I have to say that with the market flooded with vitamins and tablets that are made to do a myriad of things, you begin to wonder how you can trust it or to find what is made with you in mind. It's a scary world out there and we need something that's specialized for our daily lives and keeps us on goal to where we need to be! On Tues morning, I introduced a new beauty regimine within my daily routine. I headed to Henri Bendel’s to find out more about Functionalab. I was definitely impressed with the display and as I sat down, I was able to go through a series of questions that would allow me to see what I did on a daily basis (exercise, drinking, eating habits, etc) to figure out what my program would be. Interestingly enough, I was a 2. This means that I am now starting a program where I take a series of vitamins during the morning and evening that are tailored to my needs. I take a combination of tablets that include an athletic performance tablet as I love to work out, isoflaven blends and an age defense capsule. Just incase you don't know what you are, you get these results emailed to you so that you know what you have. This is a daily 4 week regimine and I like that it comes in a book like package.
If you have questions, you can email your nutritionist that sat with you and go over other items. In addition to the set packs, you can have elements that are targeted whether it's prenatal, focus treatments, antioxidants and so much more. This is not female oriented as they have many products for men as well. Currently, you can go online to see what's available but soon you will be able to purchase within more stores and it will be available online! Although I loved doing this in person as I had many questions to ask. This is definitely a process so I will be checking in and letting you know what's going on. I have been on this since Tues and I feel better; however, I still have to get over the fact that I am taking tablets as I am a little uncomfortable with the really large athletic pill haha but that's just me being a baby!
