Beauty Deals and Stylish Steals

As the winter months bring sweater weather, it also calls for a little extra pampering for our beauty regime.  I am absolutely in love with the dark lip colors that have carried over from fall, but in order to pull this look off successfully, you need to show your lips some TLC.  Start by using a lip exfoliator.  I prefer e.l.f.’s lip exfoliator.  It’s only $3 and you can pick it up at your local drug store.  After exfoliating, moisturize with your favorite lip balm, after the balm has had a moment to absorb, apply any vampy fall color.  May I suggest, Tom Form Lip Color in Violet Fatale.  It’s my fav!

Trending Now: Crop Tops in winter

Unless you have taken up hibernation due to the cold weather, you have probably noticed the summer trend of cropped tops has carried over into the winter months.  I have to admit, if done correctly, a la Jennifer Lawrence and Jessica Biel; the trend is chic and sexy.  I could possible love it more now then I did back in the warmer months.  Just be careful, the trend can be tricky to pull off.  Only show a minimal amount of skin, keep it simple, and you should be safe.

Fun Fitness Friday

It’s that time again, Fun Fitness Friday!  Today, my daughter and I decided to hit the lanes to knock down a few pins.  Besides the grotesque foot ware, it was a lot of fun.  Two hours and I burned 269 calories, not bad for a fun filled workout.  What are you doing as your Fun Fitness Friday challenge?

If you are anything like me, then you probably hate the monotonous work out routine.  I much rather burn my calories while having a little fun.  In that spirit, I am starting a new tradition of Fun Fitness Fridays.  Every Friday I will post a fun way to burn a few carbs.  Considering that today is one of the biggest shopping days of the year, what better way to start of this tradition with a little Black Friday shopping.  In the words of a style icon, Carrie Bradshaw, “Shopping is my cardio.”
