Tip of The Day!

Does your skin ever feel dry or look tired by the middle of the day? If so, this tip of the day will help you! When your skin starts to look not so great, use a facial spritz. It makes your skin feel energized and it actually helps you feel more alert and awake. I recommend The Body Shop's Vitamin Facial Spritz. It was made for skin situations like this! I have been using it for over a year and love it. It makes my skin feel smooth and refreshed without smudging your make-up! Another reason why I love it, is it has a very light scent of citrus. So not only will your skin feel good, it will smell good too! Sometimes I like to use this all over my body when I need that extra boost of moisture and fragrance over the Summer. If your not willing to go out and buy a facial spritz then you can make your own! Just buy a mini spray bottle (you can find them at Walmart or Target in the travel section). Fill it with water, then add your favorite essential oil. VoilĂ ! You have your own skin refresher!

Looking For A Healthy Treat?

Recently, I was skimming through the Granola Bar Aile trying to figure out what would be a healthy snack/breakfast/etc. I automatically go toward the Nature Valley Bars because they are my favorite, are healthy, and taste great. (Which is very important! No one wants a healthy bar that tastes like card board!) When I was looking through what kinds I wanted I discovered a new flavor. It was Oats and Dark Chocolate. Having a massive sweet tooth, I grabbed them immediately and check the nutritional value. I was thinking well, they have to be higher in Calories and such than the originals if it has chocolate in it. It wasn't, it was actually the same! Then I thought to myself, well I'll give them a try! When I got home I was anxious to tear open that box and bite into one for my snack. I was expecting it to be very bland, but boy was I wrong. That Granola Bar was the best one I've ever tasted. It tasted exactly like a chocolate chip cookie. It was so good, I actually felt guilty eating it. If you have been trying to cut down on sweets or lose weight for your New Years Resolution, this granola bar will be very helpful. There are two bars in each package a little bit bigger than a stick of butter. The granola makes it very filling and you get a cluster of chocolate in almost every bit. The best thing about this snack is its not too over powering! It has 190 calories, 8 grams of fat, 4 grams of Protein, and 28 carbs. (Rest of nutrition info in side picture) You may be thinking, whoa, that's high in carbs, but that's why its perfect for part of your breakfast! In the morning, your suppose to jump start your day with carbs. That also applies for your mid-day snack when you start to run out of energy. (This fits the snack category perfectly because snacks are suppose to be around 100-250 calories when your trying to lose weight or stay healthy.) So, if your New Years Resolution is to get fit and eat healthy! Don't forget to add Nature Valley Oats N' Dark Chocolate Granola Bar to your grocery list!
