One a Day Teens

I used to take One a Day Women until they made this vitamin. This pill is specialized for teens. It helps support healthy skin and immune system. It makes me feel very good when I take this. Its slightly smaller than the One a Day Women, so that makes it easier to swallow. I take mine in the morning after I eat breakfast. I found out that I tend to get nauseous when I take it on an empty stomach. So that's the only downside to it. Its pretty cheap, it costs about nine dollars. You can find it at Target or any vitamin store. I've been taking it for about 2 weeks and it makes me feel a lot more energized and stronger. There is two types one for boys and one for girls. Its easy to tell apart, one box is blue and the other is pink. Also its really cool the actual vitamin is pink! (:

Urban Decay Sustainable Shadow Box

I purchased this on the day after Thanksgiving and I absolutely love it. There are endless eyeshadow possibilities with this thing. I've done so many different looks. I can do a soft smokey eye or a bold sexy one. There are ten different eye shadows and a mini primer potion. The best thing about this product is it is 100% eco-friendly. Taking care of the Earth never looked so good! The box is made out of bamboo, the eyeshadow holders are made out of recycled paper, and the brush is cruelty free. plus its all completely recyclable. The pallet swings open and there is a mirror on the inside so its great to take on the go. Also for a whole new look try wetting the brush and then applying! It makes colors have a fun and funkier look to them. This is one of the many reasons why I love Urban Decay, is because they are so eco-friendly and have amazing products. When you use the primer potion is basically water-proofs your eyeshadow. Just don't rub it when your underwater and its all good! This pallet costs $36 but its worth every penny. Trust me, you won't be dis-satisfied with this product. I would rank this one of my favorite products. Also sorry for the delayed post! I was in Glamis (the dunes/quading) for Presidents Day Weekend. (Plus I kinda procrastinated, sorry guys!)

Board With Your Exercise?

I have a solution! Just about 4 days ago I found out how to use On Demand wit Cox Digital Cable. Now for all you that do not know what On Demand is, is its a menu that you can access (if you have cox) that has stuff such as shows, work outs, and movies that you can catch whenever you want. Now there is some stuff that you have to pay for (such as movies) but certain tv shows and workouts are free. The workouts that I have been using every day are located in the FreeZone category. Once you click that you go to ExerciseTv. Then there are over 20 different exercises you can do for free! They adds new ones every month so you won't get bored. I like to try a new one everyday. There are so many different ones, you'll be bound to find on you love. There is dancing, cardio, yoga, pilates, strength training, and there is even workouts that are specifically designed to work one area. They have exercises from 10 minutes to one hour.

Super Bowl Sunday!

I'm terribly depressed that the Cardinals lost. I wanted to cry ): They deserved to win! They worked so hard! Its been 61 years since they have been in the Super Bowl. Anyway, I was going to tell you about my delicious dip I made today. Its a lot more festive than the other dips such as French Onion and Ranch. Its called the Eight Layer Dip. Its from my Hungry Girl Cook Book which I absolutely love! The recipe is here. It was such a hit at the Super Bowl party. So many people came back for seconds! It was almost all gone. I was very pleased to hear that so many people liked it. Plus its very simple to make that even beginners can make it! So next time you need an appetizer for a party try this eight layer dip!
