#LetsMove! is the New 'Black'!

Let's Move! 2 simple words but a HUGE crusade in the right direction. The formula is pretty simple.  Take an A-List Celeb, with several iconic hits who's dance moves and routines have been emulated by several fans and turn one of her hit songs into a dance video to get adolescents (and people of all ages) to get moving and fight obesity!  Beyonce Knowles “Let’s Move! Flash Workout” is gaining tons of momentum!  Check it out here:

Are you moving yet? I'm sure there will be other celebs on board pretty soon! With dynamic leaders such as Mayor Cory Booker of Newark, NJ, musicians such as Master P and countless other athletes, the LetsMove Campaign is taking the US by storm!

Actually, I was asked, as part of First Lady Michelle Obama's LetsMove! campaign to present a "surprise" workout session at my home church during Sunday morning worship service this Sunday May 1st! I'm really excited and plan to really make it the best 5-10 minute workout ever as part of the "Let's Move Faith and Communities" challenge by First Lady Michelle Obama back in November 2010 to churches.

Since this challenge was made, the White Houses' faith-based offices have been recruiting converts for the nutrition crusade. The executive director of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, Joshua DuBois, has been a huge pusher for Let’s Move! In addition, Max Finberg, the director of the Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, has joined with John Kelly—the strategic adviser for faith-based and neighborhood partnerships at the Corporation for National and Community Service (a federal agency)—to launch the National Anti-Hunger and Opportunity Corps. The organization is sending new AmeriCorps volunteers to urban and rural areas across the country, where they will work closely with churches and community groups to fuel the campaign.

Are you MOVING?  ...What are you waiting for?  ...#letsmove

Refresh Your Gym Bag.. with Natural Ingredients!

Whether your hitting the gym, fitness classes, the yoga studio or the great outdoors to workout this spring, you need to be sure to disinfect your gym bag and its contents!

Need an all natural tip to help keep the germs away?  Try this:

Make your own Essential-Oil-Infused Disinfectant Spray

All you need is:
  •  a small spray bottle
  • lavender essential oil
  • tea tree oil
Fill the Spray bottle with distilled, spring or purified water, add 2 drops of tea tree oil and 1 drop of lavender oil and viola!  With its anti-fungal, antibacterial and tension relieving properties, this winning combination will keep the germs at bay, while giving your gym bag a fresh scent and can help to relax you after a workout in the process!  Keep this bottle in your gym bag so you can spray and wipe your gym stuff immediately after use.  This solution is perfect for cleaning the inside of your bag, your yoga mat, shoes, hat etc. which can all be a breading ground for germs.

TIP:  With essential oils, a little bit goes a long way!  So what if you spend a little extra on the concentrated oil.... it will last you forever!   Lavender and Tea tree oil are among the essentials that I have in my home....

Hit or Miss? Kat Von D Painted Love Lipstick from Sephora

Kat Von D

The controversial, yet calm tattoo artist, reality-TV star, and owner of High Voltage Tattoo, Kat Von D from hit show "La Ink" has expanded her brand from extreme tattoo designs, rich with vibrant color to a seamless transition into bright colored, edgy make-up.  The look combines old-Hollywood glamour with a rock 'n' roll vibe!  Two extreme ends of the spectrum right?  How do those two worlds cross?  Nowadays, any hybrid is possible!  This master of the tattoo machine has proven that she is also masterful with a makeup brush. 

If you looking for something that is outside of the box and edgy, but is still mature, grown and classy without the glitter and high shine of most make-up's today, I would recommend you try it....

Ok, so... I'm trending Orange lipstick right now... and specifically, Kat Von D's Painted Love Lipstick in A-Go-Go!  the color is a reddish-coral with a blue undertone.  Can I just say... wait for it .... yes......

It's a HIT for me...
This was literally, one of the most beautiful lipstick colors (as far as out of the box colors go) that I've ever purchased and the color last very long, similar to Ruby Woo by Mac.  When you think of orange lips, you normally would not associate them with Super Gorg, but A-Go-Go lipstick by Kat Von d is a hit!  I wore this on yesterday with a pale peach blush from Smashbox (that palette is now discontinued) and received tons of compliments.   

ok, so I'm sold and will most probably have to try a few more things from her collection!   Have you tried anything? Any suggestions?

Jennifer Hudson Delivers on 'Dancing with the Stars'

Jennifer Hudson, or "JHud" as she's been crowned, has a lot to be thankful for these days!  Although she suffered a family tragedy, she is now shining as pure gold with her new husband, a beautiful son, a new amazing figure and a new hit album which currently holds a steady #8 on the Billboard charts!  She just keeps getting better and better and has kept her momentum going with a dazzling performance on "Dancing with the Stars" on April 12, 2011.

She performed her new very motivational single, (a possible new anthem--for me at least) 'Don't Look Down' and an amazing rendition of Nina Simone's hit, 'Feeling Good'.  Both songs had the audience on their feet, and I'm sure the viewers at home could concur... her performance was AWE-some!

What do you think?  Check it out here...

Our mission is in our 'misery'.  Enjoy your journey and don't view it as good or bad, just "as it is".  Your journey is not about you, its about the others who you bless along the way.  --Me (~_~)

Orange Lipstick Trend and Elizabeth Taylor

Shades of Orange and Tangerine are the "IT" lipstick colors this spring, 2011.  Whether its a high-gloss, satin or matte finish in coral, orange gold, bronzy orange or lip glosses for a fainter look-which are universally flattering, everyone can partake in this trend!  This color is not new to some of our glamorous greats.  One of the greats, Elizabeth Taylor, who we lost recently at the age of 79,  was know for her beautiful and elegant syle.  She was famous for her orange-red lip color.  I'm looking forward to a Sephora haul this week to try out some of the new orange and tangerine lip colors.  I'm hoping for a match made in heaven :).  Has anyone else tried this trend yet?  Any favorites?

Here are some pics in honor of Elizabeth Taylor...

P.S.  Dame Elizabeth was not only an excellent actress, but she was also a beauty and fashion icon, a philanthropist and the creator of White Diamonds Perfume which my Mom and Nana love!  RIP Elizabeth Taylor.  The world loves you.. you were one of the greats, your mission and memory lives on.....

Product Review: Boscia Luminizing Black Mask

Hi Dolls! 

So, hope your weekend was amazing!  Spring has sprung.. I'm just waiting for the weather to catch up to the season :)

Well, a while back, I heard amazing things about the Boscia Luminizing Black Mask.  So a couple weeks back, I finally decided to make a trip to Sephora and purchase it and try it! The guy at Sephora was so excited when I mentioned that I wanted to purchase the mask and proceeded to tell me that he LOVE's it said "it pulled stuff from my pores that was there since the 3rd grade"!  Hil-arious!  SOLD!  It's not ALL natural, however it is formulated WITHOUT Parabens, Sulfates, Synthetic Fragrances, Synthetic Dyes, Petrochemicals, Phthalates, GMO's and Triclosan.  ...I'm a sucker for an exciting new product!

This product claims to contain powerful antioxidants, shrink pores, firm skin, and reduce inflammation. Once dried, the mask strips away dead skin, impurities and excess oil to reveal immediate and visible results.

My Thoughts:  When I purchased the mask, I couldn't wait to get home to try it!  This mask was really easy to apply.  I left it on for about 25 minutes then begin my peel!  When I finished the peel, I was pleasantly surprise to see black heads and white heads on the surface of the mask (when held under the light). TIP:  Make sure you apply it thick so that it peels easily.

Now, I still do my Amla face mask, but if you need a quick mask, definitely give this a try!
