Fab to Fit Series: Episode 3: What I Eat

Happy Halloween!  In continuation with my "Fab to Fit Series," it only felt right that I share Episode 3 with you on a day where we are all tempted by sweet treats.  Although everything is perfectly fine in moderation, maintaining a clean diet is something that I have personally found to be beneficial for my body.  Therefore, limiting the amount of gluten or dairy is a large part of what helped me develop a balance that made me feel good on the inside and outside.

Drinking a gallon of water per day has helped me learn when my body is craving fluid rather than food by drinking a full glass of water before and after each meal.  Another tip that helps me stay consistent is the MyFitnessPal app which allows you to upload your daily food, water and exercise intake.  It's available for the iPhone, iPad, Blackberry, Android, and Windows.

I am often asked what my diet consists of or what types of healthy foods I have eaten to help maintain a healthy body, so I put this episode together to give an idea of what a typical day in the life my diet consists of (even though no day is ever the same).

My New Love: BeauCoo

As a beauty and fashion blogger, I consistently encourage an understanding of self-worth and maintaining a positive attitude in every aspect.  Today's blog post features one of my new favorite accessories that has been added into my iPhone, which is the BeauCoo app.  

If you aren't familiar with BeauCoo, it is a social style network where women can connect with other women of all shapes and sizes to discover new styles, brands, and stores while becoming part of a body positive (#BoPo) community. What I love so much about this app is that it promotes inspirational and non-judgmental beauty where women of all sizes can share their most recent fashion finds and view style tips from other ladies as well.


For those who don't want to go through the tedious process of going to a store, trying on multiple outfits or purchasing an item online only to find out that it doesn't fit, BeauCoo provides a convenient shopping tool.  Viewers can "like" an item of clothing to show love to their fellow BeauCoo-er or "want" the item to place it in a "wish list."  How fab is that?  

The sign-up process is nothing like a line at Great America or Disneyworld either - it's quick and simple (done it about 5.5 seconds).  After creating my username and password, it asked for my measurements (and no, they are not displayed for the entire world to see) and I was ready to start posting photos.  I've really been loving that I can just update and select pieces while relaxing on my couch.  I do love to shop for pieces in-store but as a mommy and business owner, time is of the essence and I'm always looking for a time-saving element!

Dressing for your body type helps women feel good and elevate confidence; therefore, shopping and picking out clothing should be fun.  The reality is that it's not easy or enjoyable for all women, so BeauCoo developed an app that helps women of all sizes, shapes and colors to unite together and feel more comfortable when it comes to selecting clothing.

I don't know about you, but I have signed up for so many different apps and end up barely using them or I simply revert to Facebook and Instagram.  A lovely little treasure that I discovered using BeauCoo is that I can also share anything that I post across all other social media platforms which is like a party in my iPhone.  Since I'm constantly updating and posting, it's really great for consistency and a uniform platform where I can just post on-the-go.

Join the BeauCoo community with me, and check out my page as well!  The smartphone based app is available in the App Store and Google Play, which also works on both iPhone, Android and the iPad.  They also have a web-based platform available, but I am a lover of the smartphone based app because I can update while I'm in the middle of meetings or at a special event.  Happy BeauCooing!

Vintage Finds + My Weekend Recap

Happy Monday everyone!  I've been pretty busy these past few weeks working on an upcoming project so I spent most of the weekend with my son.  The weekends are always enjoyable because it's our "family time" and Sundays are my cheat days where I indulge in yummy food.  I had some mommy time on Friday night, spent a lot of time outside on Saturday, purchased some new phone candy, and spent Sunday on Lincoln Road as usual.

The vintage market is back in season on Lincoln Road so I was uber excited.  I love vintage shopping because you can usually find some really good hidden gems, but it requires some searching.  Check out my weekend photo diary below and tell me what you did over the weekend.

Friday Favorites!

It's Friday, so you know what that means...Friday Favorites!  For this week, I've featured primarily beauty products but a few other items relating to fashion or health.  I was not compensated to promote these brands by any means.  Enjoy your weekend, guys!

This cleanser is one of my go-to face washes because it doesn't leave my skin dry at all.  I received this at a fashion show; however, it is most likely available at any of your local drug stores.
I'm a fan of Clean & Clear products (ever since my tween-age years), and this Morning Burst facial scrub is perfect for deep cleansing.  I use this about once a week.  I picked this up at CVS, but I'm sure it's available at Target or Walgreen's as well.
Urban Decay has my favorite eyeshadow primer, which some would consider an "indulgence" since it isn't really necessary when applying eyeshadow.  However, I find that it actually helps reduce the need to use more product because it acts as a glue to keeping your eye makeup on longer.  I grabbed this item at Sephora.
Lately, I have been using this bareVitamins PRIME TIME foundation primer as well.  At first I thought that the oily consistency would leave my face feeling greasy but it actually applies smoothly without any residue.  This primer helps keep foundation on throughout the whole day.  I purchase this product from Sephora as well.
I have to admit, I am a sucker for protein or nutritional bars and I love these Pure & Simple energy bars by PowerBar.  They satisfy my hunger and taste delicious too!  I buy these from Walgreen's.
Last but not least, this was one of my major splurges this week.  I owned an iPhone before and switched back to Blackberry for some time but now I've returned to the infamous iPhone and I'm loving my new toy!
