Final update on here :)

Hey everyone! if you're still subscribed on here (i'm not sure how to log into google friend connect anymore because it redirects me all over the place) I wanted to send out an e-mail to those who are subscribed to me..

that I've moved to Wordpress! So if you go to now, it'll look completely different! I have my other blog on there and loved it so much i made the  jump to move this blog on there too.. it was a great decision for me.. so much easier to use and i love how you are able to customize every little thing to your liking.. not like you can't do that on blogger.. but I just ended up liking wordpress a bit more..

so if you were subscribed to the which was on blogger.. it's going to stop redirecting and it'll be at this old (and my first blog)

I'm not going to update here anymore (obvious reasons).. but will leave all my posts on here while i'm still transitioning all the pictures etc to wordpress..

if youre wondering.. yes I did transfer it all by myself! it was really easy and would do it again (and actually am planning to do it to worldformoms.. we're just in the process of rebranding lol)

alrighty then.. feel free to update your feeds/subscriptions to the new and improved

Hi Everyone!

Hey All! :) I hope you all are enjoying your week so far. I know going back to work/school after a great 3 day weekend can be hard.

My past few months have been as busy as ever! Even a trip to the hospital for SophieBear (She had Bronchiolitis & RSV) so we've been extremely busy over here..

also I've now got less than 30 days until I'm finished with my 100k Challenge on I know I have not posted any recent pictures of my body and some people have been asking, but I will leave that to the end of the challenge and also post that on my personal weightloss journey blog here:

for extra added motivation, I have joined/made my own dietbet as mentioned in previous post which you are more than welcome to join! 

I'm trying to get back into blogging/vlogging because I really do miss it! I will start slow of course as I have so many projects I'm working on right now.. 

I have a LOT of product review for you all.. both beauty and fitness.. the fitness portion I will share here and on my personal fitness blog (

If you guys didn't know, my Husband Christian is now a Certified Personal Trainer through NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine).. I will be following in his footsteps very soon.. and have a LOT of new ideas this year! 

so just wanted to let you all know I'm alive and kicking LOL.. I will have a beauty review up soon (as that's the easiest for me to do lol)

Join my DietBet! :)

Hey All! I hope you all are doing well and staying amazing!

I've been so terribly busy with nursing school, work, kids and family I haven't had time to blog as much as I'd like.. I'm hoping to get some time to do some beauty videos and tutorials (I have a TON lined up already).. in the next coming weeks.. so stay tuned my fellow beauty junkies!

Today I wanted to share... as most of you know, I'm on a Quest to lose weight.. I have 39 days left in the 100k challenge I entered back in December.. I'm down 11lbs and have 11lbs left to lose (which is what I set my goal at)..

I won't bore you all with too much of that (I will however inform you that i'm starting a new website STRICTLY for my weightloss journey - so if you're interested in that, please comment below and i'll fill you in as I go)

But for those that are interested in losing weight and wanting the extra added motivation to do so, I encourage you to join my Diet Bet!

What is DietBet?


DietBet is a game where you've got 4 weeks to lose 4% of your starting weight. To begin, everyone puts money into the pot. After four weeks, whoever's hit their 4% goal is a winner and splits the pot.
All information and how it works, can be found here:
Please join! It'll be fun!

FTC: I am NOT being financially compensated to host this game. I was however asked by a PR of DietBet to start a game if I was interested. For those that know me, I am VERY much into fitness and hence the reason why I wanted to join/start my own game and share with you all! I'm NOT being paid to do this/post this and I am NOT Sponsored by

2013 LA Fit Expo Update!

I'm terribly sorry for the lack of updates, but as most of you know Christian is one of the finalists for the 2013 Bodyspace Spokesmodel contest.

We are so excited and thrilled that he's made it this far! So thank you all so much for the support! If any of you are going to the LA Fit Expo (it's the same weekend as IMATS *Cries*) Christian will be on stage! :) for the first time, yay!

So we've just been super busy this past month and last month (well ever since he found out he was a finalist) just preparing for everything.. and of course school (mine and our kids), Baby Sophia, and Work.. it's been killer but I know this will all be worth it!

I do want to mention, there will be some makeup videos in the works (Like a Lorac Pro Palette tutorial that was requested, a huge massive collective haul that was also requested) and some fitness videos too.. because I am still in the 100k Body Transformation challenge! I entered December 23rd and my end date is March 17! So i've been working hard on my body to get it to where I want it to be.. 

I know it's only been 1 month but i'm proud to say i've healthily and safely lost 6lbs! :) My goal was to lose a total of 22lbs for this challenge.. but I really am hoping to lose 30lbs in total (my real ultimate goal) I know some of you are like wth?! 30lbs is too much, but seriously i'm 5'0 and my current weight is definitely not where it should be and where I want it to be.. 

So thank you everyone for being so patient and supporting us! truly appreciate all the love and support from our friends, family and blogger/twitter/FB/IG friends! :) you guys ROCK!
