Hello Everyone! I am so happy to be able to contribute to Stacie’s blog again. In July I mentioned that I am on a weight loss journey and that I was a weight watchers member. I have since then cancelled my weight watchers membership. For me, it just wasn’t enough. It was great to help me keep track of my food intake, but I need to make some mental changes.
I have joined a program by Corinne Crabtree. She also has a podcast and a wonderful website. Her website is: www.pnp411.com. She teaches her members to take a hard look at ourselves and get down to the real reason that we overeat. I have been overweight for so many years and have developed many poor eating choices. Corinne is teaching me how to overcome my habits and work on developing new habits. I now journal my thoughts daily and that has really helped me in my weight loss journey. I have also joined a gym which gives me the motivation to get some exercise in.
One of the tools that I use to monitor my steps is my Fitbit Charge. I have a hard time getting a lot of steps in. I have a desk job and it is so hard to get a lot of steps in when sitting all day. The Fitbit is a great way for me to see my steps and I feel it does assist me in my weight loss journey.
Now on to some skin care and makeup. I am very into spf. For so many years I did not use any type of sun protection and as a result of that I do have sun damage on my skin. A new product for me that I have been using on my face is Australian Gold Botanical 50 sunscreen. I love this stuff! It leaves a nice matte finish on my face and does not get greasy at all during the day.
Next I have been finding myself reaching for the It Cosmetics Matte Bronzer. I am very fair and I find that this is such a great bronzer for me. A lot of bronzers pull red on me, but this one does not. It’s a beautiful color and lasts throughout the day.
Next is an oldie but goodie. The Kat Von D Shade and Light eye palette. I love this palette so much. It blends perfectly and I love the matte colors. You can do a ton of different eye looks with this and the colors are very pigmented.
I saved the best for last. I found the perfect liquid lipstick. First off I want to say I am not a fan of liquid lipsticks. I find that they are very drying and I don’t think they are flattering for women that have a lot of lines on their lips. This one is different. The brand name is Maestro by Michael Perich. He has a whole line of skincare and cosmetics. I have only tried a couple of his products, but plan on purchasing more. His liquid lipstick is amazing. The formula does not leave my lips dry and this does not emphasize my lines in my lips. The color that I have is Belize and it’s a perfect neutral color. Give this a try, you will not be disappointed.
