Exercising has never been high on my list of favorite physical activities.  The effort, the sweating, the trigger of my asthma, and not to forget bore.  To stay fit, I’ve tried to be more careful about what I eat, increasing my water intake and by also taking the stairs in my parking garage vs. the more convenient elevator.  This has helped to keep my weight at or around the 170 lb mark, but it’s not doing much to firm and tone the muscles in my problematic areas.

BA Star Tropical Eyeshadow Pallette

BA Star Tropical Eye shadow Palette

I received this complimentary eye shadow palette from BA Star to review. If you are not familiar with this brand, it’s probably because it’s a brand that is used a lot by cheerleaders and other performers. Matter of fact, BA Star brands their self as “the Number One Performance Makeup for Cheerleading, All Star Cheerleading, Rec Cheerleading, Cheerleading Competitions, Dance Makeup…,” etc.  My package came with this palette (Tropical Palette) which has five colors which includes: charteuse, teal, purple, magenta and silver all of which are “shimmer”. These are not matte eye shadows.

REVIEW: NeriumAD Anti-Aging NightCream

June 19, 2014

PRESS SAMPLE I requested a sample of NeriumAD because I wanted to review another topical anti-aging product for my blog. I haven’t used it consistently and definitely not for the 30 days as recommended so the jury is kind of still out for me on this one. I also didn’t do my research until after […]
