Beauty while you Sleep

I was reading Glamour magazine a couple of months ago and reading this article about beauty treatments and staying young and how early is too early is botox. I honestly wouldn't even at all consider it until a lot later in life (look at Heidi!), but it was interesting because theres kind of 2 thoughts so that matter. One is that if you if you get botox earlier, it will help prevent wrinkles and you'll need less botox later and the other is that botox actually causes atrophy to your muscle after repeated use.

Its up to you whether or not you really feel you need botox!  I think that I'm gonna try to stay away from it for as long as I can so onto creams and other things for me. Honestly I don't have really have any major wrinkles yet but I'm all about preventative measures!

 This product, Frownies, is a great early product for those super fine lines in your mid/late 20s that doesn't really need any heavy hitting botox yet.  The great thing about this line is that their products are 100% natural - containing aloe, oats, cactus collagen, bear berries, lavender and rose essential oils, combined with antioxidant vitamins, and plant-based ingredients.  Wrinkles partially caused by the overaction of your muscles (thats why botox works, it relaxes the muscles!), this product works in a similar way through repetition of using the product to relax the muscles.

I haven't had a chance to really try it out yet, but when I do, I'll give you guys my full review! What do you guys think about something like this, would you try it, go the creams route or go full-on botox when needed?

Time to Kick off the Heels!

I'm starting to train for a duathlon that I'm doing with my co-workers at the hospital.  Its a duathlon because theres no swimming otherwise it would be a triathlon.  We run 2 smiles, bike 13 miles and then run 5 miles at the end.  I've never done a run/bike race before! I've only done the Susan G. Komen Race for Cure 5K run/walk before.  So I was a little hesitant to commit to this race, but since everyone was doing it and I figured I needed some exercise anyway, this would give me motivation! I've only ridden a bike for leisurely purposes like around the beach, so this will be interesting to see how I do!   

I love being out here.. I don't know if its just because I am somewhere new so I'm more open to try and do different things, but back home I definitely don't think I was as active.  It also helps that the weather is perfect out here!  Theres not that high humidity that you experience on the east coast in the summer time... but at the same time, when I go into the city, its pretty cool so I can't wrap my head around the fact that its cold and summer but I still wear my skirts and summery clothes anyhow! 

Hope you guys are having a fabulous week!
