Getting Healthy with Nutrisystem: Week 16.

16 weeks ago, I never thought that I would be sitting here experiencing the success that I have had with Nutrisystem. With the support of everyone there, my amazing friends and family, and the ongoing encouragement from you; I have been very successful.

Weight Loss Success

It wasn't easy at first, but I am on my way to meeting my weight loss goals. I am healthier and feeling great. In just 16 weeks, I have lost 26 pounds! I honestly never thought I would stick with the program as well as I have or have been as successful as I have been.

I would like to lose about 15 more pounds and though I will not be 100% on Nutrisystem, I do have a plan in place. I will continue to exercise and eat smaller portions. I am going to continue to drink a Nutrisystem protein shake daily and I will be stocking up on some of my favorite Nutrisystem bars that I have come to love and depend on. I will update you from time to time on my "Getting Healthy" progress. Wish me luck! I am determined to meet my goal.

Great Gifts: Too Faced All I Want For Christmas.

For their holiday collection, Too Faced partnered with award-winning designer, and one of my reality TV faves, Mary McDonald. Mary is from Bravo TV’s “Million Dollar Decorators” and she decorates with a style that fuses old world elegance with modern sensibility. With Too Faced's glamour and Mary's style, the “Joy to the Girls” holiday collection was created.

One of my favorites from the collection is this set called All I Want For Christmas. This is a makeup set of Too Faced makeup to create your very own holiday look or everyday look. I think it is perfect for traveling as it has everything you need for an easy makeup look. It's also easy to give because the shades are universal and it's got the lips, face and eyes covered. Plus it comes housed in a stylish teal and gold chevron cosmetics bag.

A Trio of Treats from H2O Plus.

The weather has been crazy. One day I am in shorts (in November!) and the next I am dressed in layers and cannot seem to get warm enough. My skin is paying the price. I have been reaching into the beauty closet looking for some great body care products to treat myself. Last night I pulled out three products from the H2O Plus Spa line and I was so thrilled with how soft and smooth my skin was that I just had to share this with you right away.

The trio of treats I used all have a common ingredient, Sea Lotus, and it was like I was transformed to the spa with this sea sourced water lotus. It was so soothing yet refreshing at the same time. Take a look at what I used.

H2O+ Sea Lotus Skin Smoother, Body Wash & Body Lotion

H2O Plus Spa Sea Lotus Body Wash - $17.00
This exhilarating body wash renews the skin and deeply nourishes it with essential vitamins and minerals.  The Sea sourced water lotus and bamboo extract provide long term moisture so my skin not only immediately feels soft and smooth, but it feels that way for hours after too.

H2O Plus Spa Sea Lotus Skin Smoother - $20.00
This luxurious, exfoliating scrub is my favorite new treat. It immediately restored my natural glow and made my skin super soft. The sea salt provides gentle, yet effective exfoliation all areas of skin. Sweet almond and macadamia nut oils are quickly absorbed by my skin to provide extra nourishment and makes my skin even softer than what I would imagine.

H2O Plus Spa Sea Lotus Body Lotion - $21.00
This moisture rich lotion deeply hydrates and softens my skin like a rich cream would, but does it while feeling extremely light. The hydrating Marine Blend combined with red algae, Vitamin E and Provitamin B5 sooth and revitalize my skin even further. It also contains rich and luxurious mango and cocoa butters, which are rapidly absorbed to instantly smooth and protect my skin, leaving it soft and radiant.
