How to fight Oxidative Stress with RxQ Antioxidant Complex

April 29, 2017

First of all, what is Oxidative Stress? “Oxidative stress is essentially an imbalance between the production of free radicals and the ability of the body to counteract or detoxify their harmful effects through neutralization by antioxidants.” (Retrieved from: Here)

Unfortunately, for most of us it is nearly impossible to avoid being affected by oxidative stress.  Due to the fact that air pollution is everywhere and most of  have to sit in front of a computer.  It’s  just part of life. However, there are things we can do to boost our metabolic hygiene. I found my solution RxQ Antioxidant Complex which is designed to help your body produce its own glutathione to help fight free radicals from everyday invisible environmental pollutants such as dust, fume, radon, UV rays, and more.

I’m the type of person who believes in vitamins and natural remedies before resorting to prescriptions and pharmaceutical options. They clearly have their time and place. However, I believe our society tends to rely on those options way too soon despite the many side effects.  So when I was offered to try RxQ Antioxidant Complex I was in!

I did my research and really appreciated that they don’t use fillers. Also, when it comes to supplements you have to understand that they aren’t a quick “fix all.” It takes time for your body to absorb and for you to feel a diference. You also have to be consistent. This is normal and to be expected. If you’re the type of person who needs a result over night, this isn’t going to be for you.

I’ve been taking RxQ Atioxifant Complex for over a month and I can tell you that it got me through finals. I have felt more energized, without the anxiety and crash I used to get. I am also able to focus better. It gives me a sense of calm knowing I’m taking something that helps fight free radicals. It also contains key ingredients such a Lutein which helps your vision. I seriously can’t live without this little supplement now and recommend it to all my friends and family.

Pink Blush Loveliness

Is there such a thing as too many flower print dresses?

If you are like me and DON’T believe that there is such a thing, you’re going to like where this new addition came from.

Pink Blush is a cute on line boutique that is primarily known for their maternity clothing, (this is definitely where I’ll be getting ALL my outfits when Gabe and I decide to start a family) BUT they also have a Women’s line. Their options for dresses are endless! Pink Blush also carries activewear, sleep wear, robes, and so much more.

This dress is so feminine and delicate. The sleeves are cuffed, which I absolutely love. Its lined to prevent sheerness. I has a slit that goes up to your knee, that adds the perfect amount of allure to the dress. Very well made and classy.

Check out this dainty, blue-flowered little number and let me know what you think!

You know how when you order something online when the package arrives,  it feels like a gift to youself?

(I know I’m not the only one ’cause there is a meme about it. Which is obviously scientific evidence that the experience is universal.)

Anyhow, imagine that your order comes beautifully wrapped like in the picture above!(Insert “in love” emoji  here)

Well, this is how Dress Boutique sends out ALL of their packages. They also include a cute gift in every order.

Aside from the beautiful presentation, their items are of incredible quality!

I got the below-pictured Bordeaux Over The Knee Boots and  I want to wear them every single day!! They are perfect for school and so comfortable. They also don’t slip and scrunch down which I can definitely appreciate.

The front wrap sweater is so flattering and cozy I could live in it. The fabric is so soft and pretty!

I really liked making an outfit of the sweater and boots. I love that it’s casual yet dressy and I could wear it for pretty much any ocassion.

I also got these ankle booties and I think  are perfect for giving the sweater an edgier look. I love that they are different than the usual ankle bootie.

Take a peek at what they look like put together with the sweater below!

Brows On Point!

May 8, 2016

Billion Dollar Brows (BDB) is a company I’ve heard great things about, so to have the opportunity to do a review for them is awesome!
That being said, I believe in honest reviews, above all. Therefore, honesty is what I strive for in my own reviews.
I am talking about BDB’s new product Brows On Point Micro Pencil in their Taupe shade, which was perfect for what I like.
First of all, I just love that it is retractable and I don’t have to worry about keeping it sharp and it stays, you guessed it, on point! (Very clever, BDB!) This allows you to be very precise with your strokes. I like to use it on the beginning of the brow, where you want to emulate those hairs and have it look natural. You can use it on the thin part of your brow to really define and fill in spots where your natural brow might need it.
The pigment is just perfect, depending on how subtle or dramatic you want your look, you can you can either increase or decrease the pressure and achieve your perfect look. I tend to lean on the more subtle side.
What I did notice is that if you’re gonna go for bold eyebrows, you gotta step up your eyeliner game also! Otherwise the eye can get over powered.
As for “negatives” on the product? Well, I used it all week and I couldn’t find any. It did occur to me that maybe it could be a little more waxy to help my brows stay put but, then again, that’s not what this pencil is meant to do! it does what it says it does and it does it amazingly!
During the week I did love finishing the look with a bit of their brow powder for an extra glam look.

Also, all the products stayed on all day which is amazing! Cause the rest of my makeup sure doesn’t! So by the end of the day at least I still had brows on point at least!

Art Deco Convertible Necklace

Who’s heard about Chloe + Isabel? I had but, very vaguely so I hadn’t realized how high-quality and classy their jewelry is.
I absolutely love that their pieces are convertible since some outfits look better with just a small piece and others need a bit more.
This Art Deco Convertible Necklace comes with separate, very well made, intricate clasps that you open to wear the necklace however you prefer.
I really like the quality of the material, you can tell it’s not going to erode.
I also like Chloe + Isabel’s mission, which is to give women the opportunity to create their own business. Which is something I can get behind! That being said go check out the lovely Heather Glover’s boutique!

So I decided to go for a different look than I’m used to. The braids were def a first and I kind of really liked them!  The high-top sneakers are super cute! However, they make me  have to confront my vertical challenge (I am only 5’5 after all) and I’m not sure I can deal with that too frequently.

Comfy Chic

When it comes to fashion, there are few things I love more than looking dressed up AND being comfortable and the same time, which is what today’s outfit is all about.

The jacket is so soft and comfy I could wear it all day if I had to. I love the draped front. You can wear it zipped or draped but….. I forgot to take pics of it unzipped.

I

AM

SORRY.

Trust me, it looks lovely.

Or if you can’t just take my word for it, I posted a link at the bottom  from the Macy’s website where you can see what it looks like unzipped and draped.

The leggings went from an extravagant $15 to $8.97 so now I have the order another pair… or three.

Hope you like it!

Elephant In The Room

February 6, 2016
Blog sneak peak! Not only is this dress super comfortable, it is also incredibly flattering! #elephantprint #ootd

Isn’t the print on this dress adorable? I love elephant print! Also, according to a some cultures, elephants are supposed to bring good luck! Making this dress not only flattering and comfy but also, a good-luck charm!

Ok, I don’t really believe in that kind of stuff but it does have pockets so… It is dress-perfection embodied.

Ever see something while shopping and you absolutely love it!? Then get home and “meh” not so much anymore? Well, that’s the story for the taupe teddy faux-fur coat in these pics.

I was at Ross, the same day I found the  awesome gray pom pom beanie i’d been hunting for, when I saw a cute fur coat. I figured  the bargain gods were definitely with me that day, so I grabbed it.

At check out I noticed a missing button and the lady said they could discount it, bringing it down to a grand total of $20 (yet another sign from the bargain hunting God, obviously!) so when she said that with the discount I wouldn’t be able to return it, zero cares were given. The Bargain Gods meant for me to have this coat.

Alas, as with most odyssies it’s never that simple, and when I got home excited to put an outfit together …….turned out I didn’t LOVE it (I think it’s the color that doesn’t quite convince me). Anywho, I was stuck with it. So, I figured that just  as with a lot of  things in life you just gotta make the best of it! Below is my best attempt at making an outfit for it (yay).

I think I still want to figure out how to make it more “street style.” Let me know what you lovely people think and if you have suggestions for a street style outfit with that same coat, I would love to hear them!

As usual, links for most things or similar items, are at the bottom. <3

A Walk In Gray

IMG_5259IMG_5243 Zaful is a website that has been showing up a lot on my FB news feed. (Yes, FB advertising claims another victim). I decided to give them a try since I’ve been hunting for a cute gray coat and they had a few.

Needless to say, I’m happy with the purchase!

Although, it is not exactly the same as pictured (the turned down neck isn’t as dramatic as it was in the picture, link below) I still LOVED the coat and for $29 I am definitely not complaining. 🙂

When I ordered, they had a sale on shipping so I got the 5-6 days shipping and I indeed got it on the 6th business day. So that wasn’t bad at all either!

The twin, a friend and I decided to head to downtown Provo for some street-style pics. I love all the different backgrounds you can get and let’s just say, this cold Utah weather does wonders to our motivation to get things done fast.

I think I’ll  be shopping from Zaful again! Has anyone else had an experience shopping from them?

Have a lovely Sunday everyone!
