Ipsys May Glam Bag REVIEW

I love love love this months bag. I was excited when our bag was the bright colored chevron print!
I did end up trading my bronzing lotion and nail polish with my friend since i do tan and i already have a few nude polishes.

I really fell in love with the macadamia natural oil healing oil treatment. I thought it would make my hair greasy but its so soft and goes on really easy. ( my beauty confession: i even use it to moisturize my hands, and the scent is amazing!)

I also received a concealer in the color of buff from yaby. It matched my skin color really well and worked very good at hiding my flaws (a girls best friend in my book!)
The last item i received was a lip gloss in the color "fig" from juice beauty. I really love juice beauty's products, they're organic,they smell great and work really well also ( i have a facial refreshing spray from last months bag i think, i love it as well) The color is pretty and it isn't sticky and messy feeling and it smells like lemon!

I am impatiently waiting for next months bag! Thanks for reading!

The Fast Metabolism Diet by Haylie Pomroy REVIEW

Eat your way to a thinner you!On The Fast Metabolism Diet you’re going to eat a lot, and still lose weight. What you’re not going to do is count a single calorie or fat gram. Instead, you’re going to rotate what you’re eating throughout each week according to a simple and proven plan carefully designed to induce precise physiological changes that will set your metabolism on fire.
  • PHASE ONE (Monday-Tuesday): Lots of carbs and fruits
  • PHASE TWO (Wednesday-Thursday): Lots of proteins and veggies
  • PHASE THREE (Friday-Saturday-Sunday): All of the above, plus healthy fats and oils
  • Repeat for four weeks!
Each Phase focuses on different whole, healthy foods to calm your adrenal glands, reduce stress on your liver, and feed your thyroid so it can produce the hormones T3 and T4, the superstars of a fast metabolism. You’ll reduce stress, too—and as a result, put the damper on the belly-fat hormone, cortisol. By keeping your metabolism guessing, you’ll get it working faster. This isn’t just a theory; it’s the results-based product of Haylie Pomroy’s successful programs. It’s worked for celebrities, for athletes and for people with chronic illnesses who need to lose weight, doctor’s orders. Now it’s going to work for you!

My personal thoughts:
At first i wasn't sure about this book. Most health and diet books i have read in the past have been boring and hard to understand. Haylie really breaks everything down and explains why we need to eat this and stay away from that. (I will never eat wheat and corn again! )
This isn't your normal restricted, calorie counting diet. You are given the do's and dont's, a list of foods you can eat as well as recipes and also a map of what your meals should look like for each phase (and what exercises too!) . She is really positive and motivating throughout the book. I love when she said that DIET stands for: Did i eat today as in:
Did i eat every three to four hours?
Did i eat within half hour of waking today?
Did i eat according to my phase today?
Did i eat enough complex carbohydrates?

I see dieting a whole new way now and I'm happy i was given this experience by shespeaks to be one of the first to read it.

Ivory®'s New 2-IN-1 Hair & Body Wash REVIEW

     I am excited to share my thoughts on Ivory®'s New 2-IN-1 Hair & Body Wash that i received  complimentary from influenster!

I received the blue bottle. The first thing i did was smell it and i was surprised it actually smelled clean and had a really good scent to it!
In the past i have had problems with 2 in 1 products. I cannot use shampoo plus conditioner because it just dries my hair out and it's a tangled mess! Ivory's 2 in 1 hair and body wash is actually creamy feeling if that makes sense. It reminds me of Finesse how it cleans and leaves your hair soft. So i was very happy with the results even though i do have to use conditioner only because my hair tangles very easily.
My son who will only use character soaps and shampoos said he  likes this as well.  He smells so clean which is a huge thumbs up from this mom! 
Once i run out of this bottle i plan to buy some more, id like to smell the orange one next.
For more fun follow ivory on their social sites!
and make sure to watch ivory's digital short on their new 2 in 1 hair and body wash:
I hope you enjoyed this blog review and make sure to try this out, you will not be disappointed!
