What I Ate Wednesday: Eating on the Run

 

WIAW

So clearly this is not an original thought WIAW was originated from Peas and Crayons  and a lot of other bloggers have started doing it as well; and since I can’t be original and I really like the idea of doing this… I decided to give it whirl as well. This will pretty much be a mish-mash of stuff,  some days I will try a new technique or perhaps I’ll be eating something for the first time as is the case today… and someday it might be leftover chili…who knows, and I guess that’s part of the fun. When I first started blogging it was to remain accountable with my exercise and food intake, so this is kind of takes me back… Very little of this is planned… but it’s 100% honest…

My early days and the days that I am on the road are the worst because I eat when I can and not all the time is what I’m eating completely healthy. As was the case today…

WIAW Breakfast

My early days and the days that I am on the road are the worst because I eat when I can and not all the time is what I’m eating completely healthy. As was the case today…

Since the only shake that I had left from my Influenster sample was Chocolate (I hate Chocolate..) I had a Slim Fast shake for breakfast, not sure what was going on… maybe it was too warm outside, maybe it was just my stomach being weird, but it did not sit well on my stomach at all… I started to sweat and thought that I might see my shake again…. but it stayed down… so I gotta add that calories

WIAW Lunch

All of the sudden I hear, “I’m hungry, I need to eat or I’m gonna die” When ever you hear that stop what you’re doing and find food immediately… My mother literally saw Popeyes down the block, so we stopped for a quick lunch.

What I ordered was a 2 piece meal, which consisted of a breast, a wing, a biscuit, and a side of beans and rice with a sprite…what I ate was everything but the breast and half of the soda (which was flat Sad smile )

WIAW Snack

I was stuck in the car with noting to drink, and I couldn’t quite make it how with out dying of thirst so I popped to Starbucks and got a Shaken Iced Team Lemonade . The Iced Tea Lemonade is one of my favorite things to drink, along with the refreshers, because they are refreshing (duh) and they are low in calories

Fun Fact: When you have your own up you save $.10 and help the environment at the same time.

WIAW Dinner

  I had to left over breast from lunch and bakes a potato…. nothing all that special..

But any who….  here is my caloric intake for today…. and based on the calories (let’s not even talk about the sodium) I consumed and how I feel I will be spending a LOT of time at the gym before I put on that swim suit next week

The instructions are simple:

download1. Brush. Brush as you normally would with your toothpaste, to whiten. 2. Turn dial at bottom of pen and apply gel. It takes only seconds to apply and adhere to your teeth. No waiting, no rinsing. 3. Go. Store pen inside brush. If used as directed you should see results in two days. The toothbrush retails around $15 and can be found at major retailers. For more information about this products head over to the product page. Now on to the review….

My general day to day tooth regime is very simple, I generally brush my teeth twice a day. In the morning I use a tiny bit of peroxide brush, rinse then brush with my normal tooth paste, I like my method, I’ve been doing it for years and to be honest I love the way it makes my teeth feel so clean an smooth. The directions to use this product really isn’t that much different than what I’m used to.
I’m gonna be honest the first time I used the whitening brush it was a little off putting, because the instantly it touched my teeth it started to foam….and I wasn’t sure that was supposed to happen I used the two clicks as instructed but after I was satisfied with the job my mouth was left a foamy mess. After quickly rereading the instructions it told me not to rise my mouth out…. so I had to spit it out (not sure if I was supposed to do that or not) .T
he second time and every time after I made sure to pay close attention to how many “clicks” I was using, unfortunately I had the same result each time…. foam mouth.

Overall I found the Colgate Optic White System to do a good job, it didn’t burn or irritate my gums like other name brand whitening systems have, and it didn’t cost as expensive.Colgate CollageThis is a product that I would defiantly use again…. good think I got a butt load of $3 off coupons…

PROS CONS
didn’t irritate my teeth or gums tacky/ sticky feel
inexpensive foam mouth
no smell
no burn
did the job
left my teeth feeling clean

Until next time folks…. keep those smiles bright.

Unboxing the Spring VoxBox

 

716179aac7d011e2a15322000aa80445_6The imPress nails that were in my box were from the Nicole Scherzinger collection (wow, that’s a mouthful) called “Sexy Fresh” they were cute and youthful and I immediately wanted to use them, my very first thought was “wow the packaging is so cute and inventive”…. but there were 2 immediate problems when I took the nails out, one my nails are too long and my nail beds are too narrow so I wasn’t able to use them, but I gave them to my cousin who will now take over this review…

 

I love the imPRESS Press-on Manicure. They are so easy to apply, it takes no more than 5 minuets to apply, that’s fitting and applying together.They are perfect for everyday wear, they look so natural and you can’t even feel them. They come in an amazing variety of 36 colors and patterns so there is a set of nails for every outfit. I love that there are 24 nails in each box, that’s enough for 2 sets!! Considering this the price makes for an amazing value. I received my nails and was able to do my nails and my sisters.They lasted a little over a week so in my opinion that’s amazing considering they are press on nails. I wore my nails to school and got so many compliments, even from my teacher who is a male! He asked whether they were my real nails, he said I have very nice nails, but little did he know they were press on nails. The imPRESS nails are one of the best things invented, they are sold for a great price, they look amazing and they are so easy to apply an added bonus is the variety. They are a must have year round!!I suggest that when you apply these nails you make sure you finger nails are extremely clean and use the pad that you are given in the package.  Also, I would apply with a dot of superglue to give them that extra staying power.  Always apply a top coat as well. helps to prevent chipping, fading and peeling, that way you get a little bit more wear on them.

Where to Buy

You can find imPress Manicure at CVS, Rite Aid, Duane Reade, KMart, Walgreens, Walmart and more. For a full list of online and in-store retailers, visit imPressManicure.com, where you can download an exclusive coupon and virtually try on all the colors and patterns!

Unboxing my very first VoxBox

 

One of the products in the box was  Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS Geltastic, the product was is described as , “an ultra strong flex gel that provides all day definition and control and dries with a firm finish. Perfect for creating defined curls” And although I do have naturally curly hair, I am currently and have for the past six months worn my hair in braid, so naturally my first thought was how can I use this product and is it even made for African American hair, but I did try the product…. braids and all First off let me say that the hold is great and it smells good. This is the kind of product where a little goes a long way, cause if you do it will get “Crunchy” but generally there is  no flaking at all, and it does last all day. Another thing that I loved about this product is it didn’t dry my hair out at all… and that’s a big issues for me.

Overall this product isn’t bad, I think I would like it better if I didn’t have the braids in, so maybe I’ll hold on to this when I take the braids out or give it to me mom and see if she gets more definition in her curls. This product retails for about $18.00 at salons across America, and Ulta.com

Until next time, stay glam!!
