Hey Y'all! I found this on Pinterest, and I thought that I'd share it with ya'll.

This is great to information to be armed with especially if you are purchasing your sunglasses online.

Not sure what's the shape of your face? I did a tutorial last May on how to apply blush correctly for your face shape. In the beginning of the video I explain how to figure out your face shape. Click here to learn.

I have an oval shaped face, and just like it says, I find that any frame shape works for me.

Got Müller? The Quaker Brand Greek Yogurt - Product Review

Have you ever heard of it? I know I haven't, nor have I ever even seen it before until I received in my Influenster Go Vox Box, a coupon to get $1.49 off. This product is not at all popular where I live. When I was eventually able to find it, there weren't much of them at all on the shelf compared to the other brands. 

So, what did I think of it? I am not really a fan of Greek yogurt because it is a bit too tart, but I know it is the healthier option. I decided to get the box of four to try.

As you can see, the fruit and the yogurt are separated and not mixed in together as is the custom with other brands. The fruit is real fruit because I was crunching on seeds. I've got no problem with that at all. The yogurt itself was tart as was expected, but adding the sweet fruit to it made it delightful.

This product may be tolerable for those of you who are lactose intolerant. My husband is and was able to eat this without any problems at all. 

These are great for on-the-go as long as you have an insulated carry-bag to ensure that it maintains its refrigerated temperature. 

I enjoyed it, and will purchase in the future. Yes, I do recommend it. 

Fun fact: Yogurt can also be used as a post workout recovery meal. It is high in protein and the fruit (berries) are a great source of antioxidants.

Take The Next Step To Your Weight Management. Product Review

In my Go Vox Box that Influenster sent me, was this Next Step Fit 'N' Full Protein powder, courtesy the Vitamin Shoppe. I got three flavors to try, Fresh Berries, French Vanilla, Swiss Chocolate. I regularly use protein powders and my favorite brand is Muscle Milk.

Next Step Flavors: Fresh Berries, French Vanilla, and
Swiss Chocolate, and Jaxx Mixing Cup.
I have had them all, and I can tell you that they were all delicious and didn't have that kinda artificial aftertaste that subtly works its way in. Muscle Milk watch out! LOL!

Let's talk about the cup. It holds up to 16 oz (2 cups), and it comes with this jaxx thingy that helps mix the powder into a liquid. Yes it looks like the jaxx from the 'Pick-Up-Jaxx' game we all (well some of us) played as kids. After shaking, the powder didn't mix completely, but that could be because I used cold water. It didn't matter to me anyway. 

Check out my instavid for a demo on how easy it is to whip up a healthy nutritious drink.

  • Next Step Protein Powder can be used as a meal replacement for those trying to manage/lose weight,
  • It can also be used as a recovery drink post workout. You would want to consume a protein drink within 45 mins after working out for best results.
  • Easy to pack, store and travel with.
  • Tastes delicious, and is satisfying.
  • Does not completely mix, even after vigorous shaking when cold water is used.
  • Mixing cup does not travel well with liquid in it. That is to say, you would need to hold this in your hand or make sure it is stored upright in your travel bag or elsewhere, otherwise there will be spillage big time.

Would I recommend it? Oh hayle yes! Stop by your nearest Vitamin Shoppe or visit them online to pick up the Next Step in your weight management.
