Expo West || Follow Me Around

Firstly I have to say WHAT AN EXPERIENCE! 
If you didn’t know already I was able to attend Expo West this year as press because of my blog and Instagram! Here’s a little background information, Expo West is a trade show that has takes place every year and it showcases all things natural and organic in California! Anyway, I went this year for my first time ever and wanted to share my experience with all of you so lets get into it!

Day 1: 
So I walked in with my dad who has gone several times before for his job and boy was I overwhelmed! I honestly had no idea what to expect because besides NYFW I have never attended an event for my blog before. Some of the booths we visited on the first day were Solgar, Kind Bar, MetRX, Balance Bar, Tiesta Tea, Pipcorn, Cookie Pop, Lily of the Desert, Health Warrior, Sparoom and Honeybee Gardens just to name a few! Being an Expo West first timer I can say I had such an amazing first day and really got to meet and interact with some amazing people! Just in the first day I got more followers on social media and more future opportunities for my blog, which was absolutely AMAZING! PS some of the brands listed above will be featured on my blog in the coming weeks so watch out! I got tons of samples; my feet were killing me since I walked a total of 5 miles in just a matter of a few hours. AKA walking anything over a few thousand steps is out of the ordinary for me! The hours went by so quickly and before you knew it I needed to get back to the hotel, put my feet up and prepare for day two!

Day 2: 
On the second day of festivities I knew exactly what to expect, what to wear and where to go! With my dad again we hit up the floor in our hotel that also had booths and took a little while to search around and then we would officially head off to the big show. In the hotel I found one booth that literally I DIED over! They were giving out fresh coconuts to everyone who wanted one so of course I went right over and got myself a coconut, which was DELISH! We finally get over to the show at the convention center and visit Boxed Water is Better, The Piping Gourmet, Wild Things Skinny Dipped Almonds, KOA, UVO, EO, Three Twins, BLK Water and again so many more! And like I said before some of the brands I visited on day two will be featured on Keeping Up With Coco very soon! I also had a super embarrassing moment that shouldn’t have happened but did!

Well you know the Three Twins ice cream guy? 
He’s on Survivor, a show I watch weekly with my family and I asked for a picture, and, well funny story. I had no idea he was on the show and knew him from the Expo West hashtag on Instagram, saw people taking pictures with him which I assumed were because of his pants, LITTLE DID I KNOW HES ON SURVIVOR THIS SEASON AND WAS FORMERLY ON THE BRAIN TRIBE! One of my dad’s friends was like he’s on that TV show right? I was like how can this be happening to me, I’m the biggest pop culture nerd and didn’t know I was taking a picture with someone on TV and not to mention I watch this show every freaking week! My dads friend ended up asking him and he was like yeah, I assumed that’s why you were taking a picture with me and here I sit like nah I just liked your pants dude! SO EMBARASSING! And that’s basically how my day two ended!

In conclusion to all of that craziness here are some of the pictures I took that I wanted to share with all of you and I also wanted to thank each and every reader I have for making this possible for me! SO THANK YOU!!

I also wanted to mention that because I have so many posts to write this month ill be posting every Sunday, Tuesday and Friday!

The Cream Review*

I received The Cream’s Body Elixir Oil and Moisturizing Lip Cream to review for all of you!! Enjoy! 

What they say: The range was developed by Denie Hiestand, a natural health consultant, author, research expert, and former successful New Zealand dairy farmer. Denie has spent decades studying the skin and toxins/chemicals in everyday cosmetics and personal care products and identified a strong link between the high usage of chemical personal care products and the growing rates of cancers, infertility, hormone imbalances, allergies and various other modern day illnesses.

theCream lip is a 100% natural formulation and is 70% Colostrum. The colostrum feeds and nourishes the skin, regenerating and repairing. Don’t wait until your lips are damaged and sore, look after them every day!

This elixir oil is a non-suffocating body oil for skin health. It absorbs into the skin easily, doesn’t leave any greasy residue behind, and won't stain your clothes. It doesn't contain any vitamin A, so it's ideal to use during pregnancy, on newborn infants, and if you have sensitive skin. If you’re going to use a body oil, check the ingredients carefully and be sure to choose one that’s adding goodness to the skin, not chemicals!

DAMN! This is gooood stuff! I’m not going to lie, with the Moisturizing Lip Cream it came out a dark almost like a light black/brown color and I was skeptical (it gave off slight color but it just enhanced my natural lip color and made it a little darker). But it sunk into my lips so quickly without feeling greasy or gross like some other lip products. It also kept my lips moisturized for quite a while without having to reapply and it overall just felt great! Not to mention its .68 FL OZ so it’s huge for a lip product and will last you a long time! PS my mom also just checked in after trying this and was like wow it feels nice!Now onto the wonderful BodyElixir Oil! Another great product! This easily is becoming my favorite after shower product. Its EXTREMELY moisturizing, smells delish and works wonders! It says it helps stretch marks so I will be keeping an eye on how it does with that but until then its still a fantastic product and it really feels like luxurious.

Basically I’m telling you right now, you need both of these things and shop around and see if anything else looks appealing to you and just splurge, and TREAT YO SELF! I can truly see every single one of their products working wonders!

KeraCell Review*

I received the KeraCell Anti-Aging Facial Cleanser, Double C Brightening Serum and the Brightening Serum to try out for you guys so here’s my thoughts!!

What they say: Our goal is RESULTS. Each product is uniquely formulated and based on Human Stem Cell Extract with growth factors from Stem Cell Conditioned Media. We then combine the Duo Fusion Technology* with other proven cosmetic "bio-active" ingredients such as Peptides, Vitamins, Minerals and the world's most technologically advanced ingredients and innovative compounds for true anti-aging solutions for face, body and hair.

WOW. All I can say is WOW! These products are truly high quality products that actually work, smell amazing and leave you feeling wonderful. One day I washed my face with the Anti-Aging Facial Cleanser and topped it off with the Double C Brightening Serum that I used as a face primer and the next I did just the Brightening Serum alone. All three of these products smell very similar so if you wear them together you don’t have different smells on your face, which is one thing I actually loved. They all have a very light citrus smell to them which doesn’t linger around for to long, its very light and clean smelling and just works. My favorite thing about the Anti-Aging Facial Cleanser was you actually saw it foam! Cleansers that claim they foam better foam in my opinion and it actually did! It left my face feeling clean and ready to take on the day! As for the Double C Brightening Serum it said it could be worn as a primer so that’s what I used it for and let me tell you! I don’t think my skin has ever felt so good with a primer! If it made your pores look smaller and smoother I think I would have found my new holy grail but that’s not what it’s meant for so I forgive you Brightening Serum! For the regular Brightening Serum it also really worked well! It gives the appearance of brighter, smoother and just better looking skin. I almost feel like it covered up some imperfections and just made me look great with nothing else on my skin!

KeraCell, you did it! These products are amazing and I cannot even get over how great they are! I cannot wait to try out some more products from the KeraCell line in the future because I have complete faith in this brand and the ingredients they use!
