Several months ago, I heard that Milwaukee was getting a MetroFlex Gym and I was SUPER EXCITED! MetroFlex is NOT your typical "corporate chain gym". In fact, it's quite the opposite ! It's a HARDCORE TRAINING FACILITY. The music is loud. The muscles ARE REAL. And the equipment is ON ANOTHER LEVEL! I attended the grand opening party this past Sunday and I just KNEW I had to be part of this great magical place!!
MORE FUN ON AMAZON!
WELCOME TO OCTOBER ! boooooo, homies! Are we ready for Halloween and FALL STUFF!??? Well, here's a few of my picks for this fall from AMAZON!!!! :) I will start with stuff I have already gotten this fall, then go into what i WANT and a few great Halloween things!!!!
First off, let's talk about Gia's new tablet that she loves and takes everywhere! Her old one, which was a few years old (and who knows WHAT she does on that thing! hahaha), started shutting itself down randomly, so we decided to get her a new AMAZON FIRE! amzn.to/2nU0j5v . She opted for the blue protector case this time instead of the pink!
This week, I also decided to order these leggings for my upcoming fitness photoshoot at SWEENEY'S GYM! I am super stoked for that shoot!!! amzn.to/2ozZKxF they fit well, have great pockets (which is my new fave thing on leggings)! They are high waisted and fabulous ! The material is very thin, yet squat proof! I got a SMALL and I am 5'6" and 135lbs !
LAST WEEK, i happened to see a facebook special for this COLLAGEN PEPTIDES POWDER with MCT oil (keto friendly) for $10, so I snapped it up!!! Collagen is good for your hair, skin, nails, and also gut and intestinal health! amzn.to/2n4p4vs
OH! i almost forgot about this one ! This is what I am using to help me sleep these days ! It contains a little melatonin and also is called a "night time fatburner" and also stress reliever ! How perfect for me, right ??? I have been using this for about a week now and I am loving it ! I sleep well, I wake up refreshed and not foggy... I recommend this stuff for sure! I can't speak to the "fatburning" part of it, though, cuz that wasn't really even why I bought it ! I need anything that will help me sleep and help my muscles recover and DEFINITELY RELIEVE SOME STRESS AND ANXIETY!!! amzn.to/2ozQWYN
amzn.to/2nLHiSS NOW, let's get to the FUN STUFF!!!!! Gia and I both have 2 costumes each for Halloween and we are FIRED UP!!!! Check out these fun ideas for costumes and avoid the hustle and bustle of Halloween Express !!!! WITCH.... amzn.to/2nWEfHh SEXY SKELETON : amzn.to/2nKUDuJ MALEFECENT (LOVVVVVVE THIS ONE!)amzn.to/2nLHiSS !!!!!
I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE EVERYONE'S HALLOWEEN COSTUME PIX!!!!! ! PLEASE POST THEM!!!!!
THANKS FOR CHECKING OUT THIS VLOG! AND YES, if you follow my links, I think I may get a little kickback (I HOPE!! HAHAHA), just fyi!
why monthly billing ? How does it work?
HELLO! How's everyone doing?? Hope you all had a fabulous summer! I thought I'd share with you guys some of my Amazon purchases of the summer! There actually weren't that many, but lots of people loved the snakeskin, cheeky bikini I wore in my last photoshoot and I got a MED (which was a smidge too small for my taste-- it was China sizing, so, I probably SHOULD have gone to a large...) amzn.to/2KxZfwI
I actually had a plan to also wear a 2nd cheeky bikini at that shoot, but we got rained out and ran out of time , so I do not have any photos of me in it...But it's super cute and would have looked great with that fake tan I had that day!!!! (BIKINI : amzn.to/2Z5LnxB SUCH A PRETTY BRIGHT YELLOW!! FAKE TAN: amzn.to/2YLfGyt loving tan, shade of DARK. )
For my skin, I took a lil break from my retinol and peels and focused of some derma rolling /microneedling! I do this at least once a week. I upgraded from the 0.25MM sized needle to the 0.3MM and I can feel the difference ever so slightly... this one comes with a hyaluronic acid serum (that seemed to be gone within a week...) amzn.to/2H62RnB
In the same order, I grabbed a couple of these Tinkle eyebrow trimmers for dermaplaning! I LOVE getting rid of all the peach fuzz all over my face so my makeup sits better and my products absorb more! amzn.to/2H910OR (I got 6 of these for under $5!!)
Finally, I finally pulled the trigger on a new glycolic acid peel gel after a several month break! My skin is getting terrible again and has lots of texture I'd like to smooth out and brighten up! So, I ordered this peel amzn.to/31KeecJ and this serum (amzn.to/2Z7QMEm was suggested to smooth on afterwards!!! ALSO: something I learned from reading the reviews and product description was that you NEED to wipe the grease off your face with alcohol before applying the peel, OR IT WILL NOT WORK! I am not sure that I ALWAYS did that before with previous peels !! ALSO: you need to neutralize the peel after a few minutes with a baking soda/ water solution ! ) These 2 items are due to be delivered by tomorrow, so I will write an update for you after using them for the first time !! (you KNOW i will try it IMMEDIATELY!)
Thank you guys for reading my blogs and PLEASE LET ME KNOW if you order anything and how you like it !!!
HAPPY SHOPPING !

AMAZON STUFF: GYM EDITION
So, this is my third installment of STUFF I LOVE FROM AMAZON!!! Since most of the stuff I buy in general is FOR THE GYM, what better genre of merchandise to specialize in here ?!
I DEFINITELY HAVE TO START WITH THE LEGGINGS that set my facebook on FIRE when I posted the pix from a photoshoot ! Literally DOZENS of girls demanded to know what kind they were and where I bought them ! I have them in WINE and GREY, and they are only $17.99 !! amzn.to/2Xj71BJ
skin care from amazon....
Hi, guys!! I thought i would do a skincare specific "favorites" blog for you today! I have a TON of skin issues I am trying to deal with here !! A cleanser i ABSOLUTELY LOVE for getting rid of my blemishes and breakouts is this one ! amzn.to/2WGJ6MW with neem and tumeric ! When I discovered this stuff, I was having a really bad hormonal breakout and this stuff plus a cool masque I make using plain greek yogurt and this powder amzn.to/2XJHmzc wiped that shit right out!! Of course, I still get occasional (mostly PMS time) breakouts, but at least I have this remedy!!! ALSO , something that impacted my clogged pores and made my face much clearer and glowier was this glycolic acid peel! (definitely dilute with water and follow the directions so you don't burn your skin!!) amzn.to/2WFEvdV !
I am also a big fan of gadgets that MAY help me get some semi professional results at home, so I tried this high frequency facial device ! It has different attachments for electrocuting your zits as well as a comb-shaped one for helping to stimulate hair growth! I don't us this device as much anymore, but when i first got it, I religiously did my face and scalp DAILY for several months!!! I saw results, but it just became TOO MUCH to do every day! I'd suggest once a week to help make this workable into your normal skincare routine ! amzn.to/2WHbQp2 !
I have tried about 3978567568598090390 serums in the last few years! The one I currently use 2x a day contains vitamin C and hyaluronic acid to brighten my skin and help plump up my fine lines and wrinkles ! amzn.to/2WGKY8q !
And , finally, I just received this lovely little eye cream today, so I will have to let you know how it works in a few weeks!!! I was won over by the great reviews and the fact that it contains caffeine (which is supposed to tighten up those pesky eye bags!!! amzn.to/2WG9XZz I should also add, this came with a little paper including a website you can go to to get a free 2nd product ! ( I assume, in exchange for a good review , but I haven't looked at it yet!
SO, i am happy to announce that both of my FABULOUS LADY AMBASSADORS (jeanette and kristy) are making great progress on their fitness journeys !!!! Clothes are fitting better, booties are getting rounder, inches are being lost!!!! YAAAAAAAAAY! Most importantly, though, they are FEELING BETTER, getting stronger and healthier and are SO MOTIVATED to continue!!! Kristy sent me her fitindex stats and, along with having lost 4 inches in her measurements check up, she's lost close to 5lbs and bf% is headed down! WAHOOOOO!
Jeanette, who has only been training with me for a month now, is also seeing changes!!! Her clothes fit better and she's super committed to her hardcore training !!! Check out these booty gainzzzzzz!!!
