The Thrive Experience

Since I recently began my “Thrive” experience I wanted to create a Blog post to share with you that you could easily reference as a resource for tips and tricks of how the product works and has helped me feel the best I have in a LONG time.

What really compelled me to start was my mother! She is 56 years old and she started her Thrive experience May of 2019 and has lost 20 pounds so far! Which I find incredible. She doesn’t work out at all but is now eating healthy, lean proteins and fish, veggies and grabbing a yogurt for dessert instead of ice cream. She will be starting Yoga classes soon to tone and strengthen her body.

Disclaimer: While taking Thrive you cannot have caffeine. No coffee, no soda.

I was so eager to get started I didn’t care about having to remove caffeine, I just powered through and once day 5 hit is where I felt amazing, I no longer wanted my morning ☕️ coffee, instead I have opted for Decaf everything, because I do enjoy the warmth and taste of coffee.

My day starts at 6:30am – by the time I shower, brush my teeth and head downstairs to my kitchen it’s 7:00am

You start your day with 2 capsules and a glass of water of which I add Lemon to.

7:20 am : 20 mins later – My sweet fiance’ brings me my smoothie

Half of the packet goes in with milk or water

I choose to have my smoothie with

  • Unsweetened Almond milk
  • Chia seeds
  • Flaxseed
  • Cacao nibs (1 teaspoon of each seed) .
  • I also add half of a banana and 3 ice cubes.
  • 1 Scoop of Inulin Powder (link below)

Blend together.

I drink that while I’m listening to a podcast and doing my makeup. I don’t do the banana everyday maybe 3 times a week.

Last of the 3 steps: put on your Energy Patch and your done.


I did not feel the full effect until day 5! I have so much energy now and feel so happy! I’m powering through my workouts with ease.

I use the Kayla Itsines Sweat app she is amazing and has helped millions of women get in shape.

I also add Inulin Ingrid’s Inulin Powder to my decaf coffee ☕️ and snack on RX bars RX Bars Here if I am in need of a bit more protein. GG Crackers for fiber GG Crackers Here .

I do meal prepping for lunch, here is the Youtuber that got me inspired for my lunches   Meal Prep YouTube video Here

Ryan (my fiancé) and I usually have dinner around 7:30 or 8:00, fish, chicken tacos , chickpea pasta Banza Pasta , cauliflower mash potatoes, sweet potatoes baked in the oven with paprika and cinnamon. A variation of these items plus a kale salad, green beans with olive oil, tomatoes, and topped with Feta.

If you are interested in Thrive please email me at so my sister can help you set up an account and get you feeling the Best you have felt in forever!

Talk to you soon,

Best Setting Powder for a Youthful, Dewy look

Hi Guys and Gals,

Last week I updated you on my favorite skin care tips for my nightly routine, check here if you missed it Beauty Products I’m Obsessed With and so naturally this week I thought once you have your skin routine on point let’s talk about showing off your hard work with makeup and getting that dewy glow!

For the longest time I didn’t want to wear a powder over my foundation. Mainly because my skin is aging, at the tender age of 33, yes, my skin is starting to see signs of fine lines and if you add powder; my thought was that the powder would settle into those lines making them more apparent than they really are. I have watched a million youtubers on makeup tutorials and finally decided that I needed to make a go at finding a translucent powder that would not succumb to that “cakey” look we all dread and one that would not let those fine lines be more noticeable. I also noticed that my contour would separate on my cheek bones  and I couldn’t take it any longer.

I walked my happy self into Sephora, (cue the angels singing), and talked to my trusted Sephora rep and friend and he immediately knew that I needed this Translucent Powder

Best Powder Ever

Makeup Forever Translucent Powder

Tip: when applying a loose setting powder, tap your brush into the product and dab into your skin, do not swirl your brush around on your face.


Steps for getting Dewy, Glowy Skin with makeup

I can’t say enough about this amazing foundation that doesn’t settle into your fine lines, it is super hydrating to the face, it brightens the face without feeling cakey or too greasy. It’s just perfect. A color-correcting, full-coverage, anti-aging skincare cream with SPF 50+ physical sunscreen and illuminators.

Step 5: Tarte Shape Tape Concealer

Best Concealer

I apply concealer after my foundation under my eyes and dab it in with a beauty blender

Apply whatever else you need to with your wet products, if you use a cream contour of some kind, apply it, then dab in your Setting powder, then go ahead with your bronzer, blush and highlight. This is the winning formula.


I hope you all enjoyed these little tips and tricks for getting that Dewy, flawless finish! let me know if you pick up any of the products I mentioned, I would love to hear your feedback! Till next time, Have a great day and awesome week!

Cult Beauty Box by: Lydia Elise Millen

Hi everyone,

It’s been a while since I’ve done a post and sat down and chatted with you. I am listening to Bossanova music at the moment, having a chilled glass of Rose’, Candles burning and pounding away at the keyboard and dying to tell you about all of my favorite beauty products I’ve been using recently.

There’s so much to catch up on but I wanted to share this beauty post with you first. I purchased this beauty box that was curated by my inspiration for everything Fashion, Travel, and Beauty,  my girl obsession with Lydia Elise Millen is full on. Lydia’s Blog is here , Lydia’s YouTube Channel is here . I hope you love her as much as I do. I would start with her youtube channel, she is effortlessly chic and able to laugh at herself and she is on the pulse of everything.

Lydia Elise Millen The Cult Beauty Box 1

Cult Beauty Box, Lydia Elise Millen

All of the items in Lydia’s box are such a great value and everything inside the box is everything I was planning to buy anyways but this way you can save 41% off of all of these products and get everything at once.

Here are my standout favorites and two other items I use daily for my skin to look and feel it’s best and most of all hydrated.

Before I get into the favorites I have to remind you that drinking water and drinking Mineral water are extremely important for your skin and overall health.


Bottled mineral water contains up to four times as much calcium and magnesium as regular tap water. One study found that people whose drinking water was low in magnesium were able to lower their blood pressure by drinking a liter of mineral water every day.

I try and aim for 3 liters a day, doens’t always happen but I do try.

First up is the Luna Mini 2

pink nugget

Luna Mini 2

This little nugget is so cute and makes me want to wash my face in the morning and night. Like I can’t wait to start my night time routine. Apply your cleanser first then let the Luna do it’s magic. This little beauty helps fight acne and wrinkles, unlike those brush head devices you see online this little nugget doesn’t allow bacteria to build up it was engineered by the Swiss and they have amazing skin.

My 2nd Favorite thing ever!


dr.dennis peel pads

Dr. Dennis Peel Pads

I’ve heard a lot of people reference this little resurfacing magic towelettes as Botox in box. There are two strengths of formula with these pads and I started with the lighter version first. Easy to travel with, they help with fighting age, keep wrinkles away and help with keeping your skin smooth to the touch. My skin has never felt so soft and and so smooth (EVER!!!) It’s the first product I’ve ever used where you can actually see results within the first couple of days. Looking forward to checking back with you after 6 months of using this product and we can talk about how Glowy and smooth our skin is.


Rosehip Oil

If you buy nothing else, I would encourage you to buy the Rosehip Oil. A whopping $21.00 for a miracle in bottle. After I wash with the Luna device and then my peel pads I I slather this all over. It has helped reduce wrinkles in my forehead before they have had time to fully sink in. Rosehip Oil is a nourishing body oil that is rich in omega fatty acids, antioxidants, and Vitamins A, C and E. It will help with brightening and smoothing out the appearance of fine lines.

Last but not least a good moisturizer.

Let Food Be thy Medicine

Hippocrates said, “Let Food Be thy Medicine.” I truly believe that with every fiber of my being. Speaking of Fiber let’s talk about it.


My inspiration for this post came to me after I went to the Doctor to have my yearly physical. I LOVE my doctor. She is so REAL, down to earth, a wealth of knowledge, incredibly kind and patient. Everything you would want in a Doctor. Once we had our conversation about life in general she went over my results, I was blown away. My Cholesterol went down 22 points from the previous year. My good Cholesterol down 6 points, my Triglycerides down 20 points and lastly my LDL (bad cholesterol) down 12 points. I know I have to attribute that to adding fiber into my diet and I did that with GG Crackers.

My boyfriend and I eat well and then we have our cheat days. As one of my favorite bloggers, Lauryn Evarts of the The Skinny Confidential says, “you balance your health like a check book.” That’s how I choose to live my life with food, Balance.

In my upcoming posts I’m going to share my go to recipes for some healthy dinners that hopefully you will love and incorporate into your dinner rotation. But first some tips and tricks and a typical day of what I’ve been eating to get results.


Scrambled eggs, Avocado spread on top of a GG Crackers  with Crushed Red Pepper Flakes

Directions for Avocado Spread:

2 Whole Avocado (depending on how many people, 1 per person) Olive Oil, 1 garlic clove minced, juice of 1 lime wedge or lemon, mash that together till it looks like guacamole.

Your body metabolizes avocado so quickly and it’s a healthy fat, don’t be scared of the fat content, your body needs fats.

Tip: Make sure your Olive Oil is Cold Pressed

Benefit of Cold Pressed Olive Oil: “Coldpressed olive oil is extracted from fresh olives by mechanical means at a temperature of 81 degrees Fahrenheit, according to the Olive Oil Source. Coldpressed virgin olive oil contains high amounts of monounsaturated fatty acids, polyphenols and antioxidants that provide many health benefits.”

Heat extracts all of the benefits from Olive oil, so keep an eye out.

Tuna on spinach with cucumber (super Hydrating) grape tomatoes, broccoli , sprinkle on Ground Turmeric (cancer fighting properties), cayenne pepper speeds up metabolism and for the dressing i used Olive Oil & Balasmic. A side of cottage cheese.

Broccoli is a great choice for a weight loss diet because it’s so low in calories, but that’s not the only benefit you’ll gain. It’s packed with essential nutrients and contains fiber, which contributes to satiety. Several micronutrients in broccoli are known to support weight loss, and its phytochemicals show potential for breaking down fats.


Salad: Spinach, tomato, cucumber, broccoli, any type of  healthy dressing

Entree: Spagetti Squash Mexican Boats

Entree: Zoodles for Spagetti

Entree: Fish

Sides: Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes, Brussels Sprouts, Asparagus

Braggs Soy Sauce Replacement

I hope this post was full of value and I can’t wait to share more tips and tricks and recipes in the weeks to come. Don’t worry I haven’t forgotten the roots of this blog which is fashion but if you look and feel good then it makes shopping so much more fun.
