Belissimo Lips Review*

What they say: 
“Stand out from the rest and shine with our fabulous sparkling Belissimo lips! This amazing lip product is gentile but designed to stay on for up to 12 hours. First apply the water based adhesive and then apply the sparkle…and you’ll be shining!"

Thoughts: 
I was shocked with this product to be honest. I thought it was going to be messy, hard to apply and not long lasting. But let me tell you, I was 100% wrong. 
It was a little messy but its glitter so that’s something that’s always messy. It was extremely easy to apply and it was kiss proof! I didn’t actually kiss anything other then my hand but it stayed on my lips until I decided to remove it. The product itself (the glitter and glue) was gentile like they said and the removal was extremely easy. I could see this becoming the new must have product for every single girl.
It was so beautiful but in such a simple and classy way that I almost cant even describe. I feel like every woman needs Belissimo Lips in their life. It’s the perfect product for all special occasions and even everyday use if you love to have glitter in your life!

Jamba Juice Cold Pressed Juices Review*

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Jamba Juice for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.
Interested in juicing? 
 Looking to get in fruits and veggies on the go? 
You absolutely must check out Jamba Juice’s Cold Pressed Juices! 
The juices are healthy, paleo. fresh and cold pressed, 100% juice and no preservatives! The Jamba Juice Cold Pressed Juices come in four flavors and I was able to get my hands on three of them. The flavors I tried were Orange Reviver, Tropical Greens and Veggie Harvest, they also have a Citrus Kick flavor.
More info can be found here:


Flavors
The Orange Reviver juice is a mixture of oranges, apples, bananas and beets.
The Tropical Greens juice is apples, pineapples and supergreens. 
Veggie Harvest is made up of apples, carrots, beats, supergreens and ginger. 
And Citrus Kick (which I really wanted to try) is made of oranges, apples, pineapple and ginger.

Thoughts on Each Flavor
Orange Reviver  (180 calories) is very sweet, which is awesome for a juice and I get a very strong beet flavor and scent that really doesn’t bother me. This was one I really enjoyed! 
Veggie Harvest (140 calories) also has a very strong smell but this one I found to not like as much, but I am not a fan of ginger so maybe that’s why.
And saving the best for last Tropical Greens (160 calories)! This one I thought was so delicious, it smells very tropical which I assume is the pineapple. Tropical Greens is also very sweet and these flavors just work! I personally think the pineapple makes this one amazing and gives you a very tropical flavor while getting in your daily fruits and veggies!
 All of the juices I was able to try didn’t leave a bad aftertaste like some juices I know do, but one thing you must do before drinking is shake up the bottle! Juices separate and I noticed the Veggie Harvest to separate much faster then the other two.

Experience 
My Jamba Juice experience is always amazing and this time was no different. My local Jamba Juice is not overly crowded being that it is on Long Island and not in New York City. The one problem I did have was actually getting my hands on these Cold Pressed Juices, they are in very high demand and I can see why. I went at 10:30 AM and believe they had already sold out of the Citrus Kick, which was disappointing. So my advice to you if you are interested in trying out the Jamba Juice Cold Pressed Juices, call the store you will be going to and see when they get the shipment. Also call the morning of the shipment to see if they got the juice and still have it in stock. 
Cold pressed juices are a very hot thing right now especially since were approaching spring so they may be a little hard to get your hands on so be prepared for that! Each juice costs $5.99 plus tax which is actually less then other juices with the same quality. So with all of that being said if your looking to try a Cold Pressed Juice you absolutely must check out the Jamba Juice Juices! 

GIVEAWAY!
I also have a surprise huge for you readers!
All you have to do is comment with which Cold Pressed Juice flavor you would be interested in trying for a chance to win a Jamba Juice gift card!

Current Skincare Routine

Skincare is one of those things I'm constantly keeping up with. Ill go days without makeup or doing my hair but ill always be applying something to my skin. Currently a few of the products I'm using are not available for everyone. The facial cleanser I use I buy at a local spa and the acne treatment has been prescribed for me. But I'm here to give you options that are available for almost everyone at either a local drugstore or Ulta/Sephora!

Like I said my facial cleanser is called "Alpha Cleanser" it’s an orange cleanser but stick with a cleanser you know and love! To cleanse my face I use my Clarisonic Mia which I got for Christmas and let me tell you that thing works wonders. The first few weeks were rough as my skin was purging all the dirt and oils but after you get through that you really do see improvement. After washing my face I then use my prescribed acne treatment called Aczone and when I’m feeling super dry I use my CeraVe moisturizer. On days where I’m running errands or rushing out the door I use my Organic Skincare Doctor organic aloe vera wet wipes. Also when I feel a pimple coming on I use my Mario Badescu drying lotion and for masks I like to switch it up using any of the Freeman masks!


And there you have it! This is my skincare routine! What’s your number one spot treatment for acne? Let me know below!

Age Appropriate Fashion

I was watching New York Live and they were saying that women are fed up with being told what’s age appropriate and what you should wear at a specific age.
This isn't a how to or anything it’s more of an opinion post, so enjoy!

I think no matter what age you are you should wear something you feel confident in. Whether its short shorts at age 60 or a one-piece bathing suit at age 20. The world is known to judge anything you do but you absolutely cannot let people control your fashion. Fashion is one of those things that you can express yourself with, and don't let anyone take that away from you. Be body confident at all ages and show off what your mamma gave ya! Don't hide behind layers of clothing and overwhelming accessories! Be you, be fashionable and do what you want!

This topic really struck a nerve with me and I was like I must write a post about this! I’m all for women empowerment and I think everyone should love themselves for who they are and don't let opinions and other people change that! You rock that bikini and short shorts and make the world your runway!
