Beauty Check List: Prep for a Fantastic Fall

Hi everyone,

First off I want to apologized for the lack of posts but I'm super busy with my personal and work life and also stock in Jury Duty (ggggrrrrr). I'll be back soon with videos, outfits and much more exciting posts for all of you.

Now on with this post!!!

Who says transitioning from season to season needs to be tricky and expensive? Here are some simple and fast tricks we can all do to get perfectly primped for this seasonal change.

Beauty Check List: Prep for a Fantastic Fall...







Cleaning Out The Closet
Gearing up for fall, it's important to toss your old spring and summer products in the trash. Using old products can lead to bacteria and infections (which can spread to your entire body!). A major beauty no-no. Word to the wise: If your makeup changes in texture or smell you know its time to ditch the product.













Vitamin C Cure
With fall just around the corner the last thing you want is to succumb to a cold. Kick your immune system into high gear by taking a daily dose of vitamin C. This super vitamin has also been shown to lower stroke risk, reduce stress and skin aging.
Now that's a combo we can't resist!













Shoe Slip Up
After a long summer in flip flops and sandals, (Ahh! The comfort of flat shoes!), transitioning back into sky-high stilettos can be tough on your feet. Invest in a pair of sole inserts to give your peds a well deserved and much needed rest!






Mind, Body...and Digestion
Don't go running for the hills just yet - not all cleanses live up to their harsh reputation. Using a simple cleanse that you can incorporate into your daily lifestyle will help prepare your body for the upcoming cooler months. By adding one to your day to day routine you can regulate your digestive track, detox your system and boost your energy. For a mild cleanse try Bethenny Frankel's Skinny Girl Daily ($59.99)







Simple Sculpting
Getting arms like Cameron Diaz's is a synch when enrolling in a kickboxing class at your local gym. They promise that you'll burn up to 1200 calories in one workout session! The secret to this outrageous burn: the resistance of working with a 100 pound heavy bag. Get killer arms and cut calories with a punching bag a simple one-two punch workout.
















Knock Out Nail Biting
One free body upgrade you can do now is to stop biting your nails! Germaphobes beware: this nasty habit can lead to infections, ruined front teeth, and worms, eek! Avoid the urge to bite by painting your nails a fun and funky color.







ALWAYS P!NK POSITIVE & P!NK BEAUTIFUL
