New Spring Kushyfoot products

This month I have been wearing my new Kushyfoot products like my feet depended on it! (Actually it did!) I absolutely love the cushion-y feeling and support that I get with the foot cover socks.. (Its got these little soft pillows that make every step so comfy) so I was excited to try the new styles!

From left to right: 
1) The Ultra Low Cut Foot Covers- These cute new polka dot styles is perfect for wearing with your flats or loafers. Each pack comes with two pairs- a steel gray/blue and a black one. It also comes with a cute fringe so it will look adorable even when wearing alone.

2) Sport Foot Cover- this hot pink pair was perfect for wearing with my sneakers. It felt comfortable, even without the cushion and didn't feel sweaty even after an intense workout. Definitely going to get a few more of these as they're flat and easy to pack for travel.

3) Extreme Low Cut Foot Covers- Similar to the Ultra Low Cut, these pairs are even less coverage to wear with your favorite pumps! Each pack comes with a nude and a black pair. I haven't had any issues so far with them slipping off, which is a huge plus!

4)  Sheer Anklet- This pair of nude socks is cute when wearing your favorite pair of heels and long pants! Its perfect to wear in a corporate environment but since I'm wearing more business casual nowadays, I'll be saving these for another time.

Check out www.kushyfoot.com to see all their products. Also, all orders over $40 includes FREE SHIPPING!

Exfoliate with Beautisol's Exscrub Me?

As part of the #iFabbo blogger network, I got to try out an amazing new product from Beautisol- the Excrub Me? citrus facial exfoliant. Sloughing away dead skin cells is essential to get your skin looking and feeling healthy. It's also the first step in achieving a nice, glowing tan (natural or with some help!) For me, any product's scent is important because I want to make sure they smell great. Any fruity scent is already a fave so I was glad to see that it included Tangerine, Lemon and Orange oils. My skin felt fresh and revived after using this and now that my dead skins are sloughed away, it's perfect for any treatment after. 

To get yours today check out Beautisol at http://bit.ly/1jRVxlY 

Also, for BeautyAllThat readers, you can get one for free with the exclusive Buy One Get One Free deal using code: BOGO2014. (Valid until 6/30/2014)

March Ipsy Bag revealed!

March's Ipsy bag includes eyes, lips and face products that are perfect for travel and for an everyday look. 

The bag came with the cutest travel-sized lipstick from bareMinerals. The Marvelous Moxie lipstick in "Get Ready" is a pretty pinkish red. It's also quite hydrating and perfect for everyday.

For an everyday, easy to wear eye makeup, the NYX trio offers complimenting shades for many eye colors. Dare to go blue? The Chella eyeliner lets you get the perfect winged look with its precise liner. 

To get your face prime and ready to go out, the Pixi Beauty primer helps you get that glow! I don't normally use primers but it's got some tint and I like the radiance it brings out in my skin.

Can't wait for April's bag!!

The Makeup Show in LA- recap

I started March off right with The Makeup Show right here in Downtown Los Angeles. My first show in LA, I wasn't sure if it would be any different than the ones in NYC. Right when I got there, I knew it wouldn't be much different. Many of my favorite brands were present and I was pleased! Here are some pictures of just *some* of the booths! 

Lots of new products and many new collections were launched at the show! Super excited to have gotten some sneak peaks and the show prices at a great discount didn't hurt either. Stay tuned for my next post for more!

February Birchbox with UsWeekly

This month's Birchbox, specially curated with Us Weekly, was a mix of items to help you get "carpet-ready." For $10/month, I sampled various beauty products intended to give yourself a finishing touch. 

Here's what I got:
* Miracle Skin Transformer Face Spotlight SPF 20 (Unfortunately I'm allergic to chemical SPF ingredients so can't try it out.)
* OPI Sheer Tints Color-Tinted Top Coat- the sheer pink is incredibly cute and different! Top coats don't have to be clear and pain.. now there's color! Can also be worn alone so you get a sheer pink as well.
* Joan Vass L'eau de Opale fragrance - smells nice but not a huge fan of it. Per their description it contains "top notes of valencia orange and pink pepper with a sweet combination of cinnamon leaf, jasmine sambac, and tuberose middle notes."
* SARAHPOTEMPA The HALF-UP™ styling tool is unique and pretty easy to use to create a low bun or a bun half-up without extra bobby pins.
* Bonus: 32 Oral Care Effervescent Breath Crystals with IsoVoxy- 2 packets of pop-rock fizzy crystals.. not my favorite since I would rather chew a piece of gum.

My favorite products were the HALF-UP hair tool and the OPI Sheer Tints top coat. I would have liked to see more deluxe sized samples as my boxes seemed to be a bit more light than previous ones. Hope to get something amazing in future boxes!

February Ipsy bag: The Look of Love

This month's Ipsy bag contained the following products:
* Zoya nailpolish in DOT
* Pop Beauty lip gloss in Peony Petal
* Tini Beauty eyeshadow & primer in Ambrosia Beauty
* City Color Be Matte Blush in Fresh Melon
* IPKN NEW YORK BB Cream in Light

My First W3LL PEOPLE product!

W3LL People creates natural & organic beauty products and its Narcissist foundation & concealer stick has become my latest daily must-wear! I was able to one of their most popular products from Goodebox's recent giveaway. I adore that the conveniently packaged foundation stick is creamy and perfect to hide any blemishes, redness or dark spots. I'm also loving this to hide those dark circles while skipping the eye cream first.

It feels really natural on your skin, doesn't feel heavy at all! The coverage is great and it is formulated to blend well so you can add more product without the "cakey" look. 

Thanks to Goodebox & W3LL PEOPLE for their giveaway!

February Fitness: The Thin in 10 Weight-Loss Plan Book Review

February has been my fitness-focused month. Of course I strive everyday to be more healthier and more conscious with my diet, but I have made mini-goals to find routines that work for me. (That's key to finding something that can last.) A book that I have been reading and loving is The Thin in 10 Weight-Loss Plan with tips and tricks on how to "make-over" your body and life in just 10 minutes a day. This book is perfect for the visual fitness newbie who is looking for different moves to try in a 10 minute sequence. I also enjoy the recipes and recommended daily meals just so you have an idea of what kinds of foods you should be eating..(think more fruit and whole grains and less fat!)

What I like about this book is that it also contains a workout DVD so you don't have to flip through the pages. Instead I read it over so I can familiarize how to perform and perfect the moves. This book has so many great workout tips to help you achieve strength, flexibility and a stronger core. Check out your local bookstore or Amazon to get your own copy today!
