5 Minute fast Beauty Blast

If you're anything like me you probably don't like running outta the house to the gym or grocery store with a lifeless face! Got 5 minutes? Here's what I do before heading out in a hurry- [Cause u know the day we leave the house in full ghetto mode is the day we always end up running into a friend or someone we just don't care to see while lookin scrubby] :)
I use Garnier BB cream in light/medium, Maybelline Colossal mascara (def not my favorite mascara- but that's why I use it for quick runs, I didn't wanna waste it) lol Rohto eye drops to get rid of my red eyes: red eye= not flattering lol, Posie tint by benefit for lips and cheeks and of course eos lip balm in pomegranate <3 Oh and if u have no eye brows or no ends like mines- feel free to touch up them bad boys too! NYX brow pencil does wonders!
P.s I always like to wear a bright headband too. It just makes my skin look brighter, more glowy and healthy and really compliments the pink colors from the posie or bene tint in my cheeks and lips without looking done up <33 It's all about Natural beauty right ;)

Please feel free to comment, or tell me what u do for a quick out the door, natural face <3

Organic Chia seeds- If u don't know, u better ask somebody!

Chia seeds Health and Beauty benefits

"You have probably heard how important it is to get enough essentials fatty acids (EFAs) in your diet. Some good food sources containing omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids include fish, shellfish, flax seeds, leafy green vegetables and walnuts. Unfortunately, it is not always easy to obtain enough of these fatty acids on a daily basis. Recently, an ancient seed has regained popularity due to its high nutritional value"

The Chia Seed has been named the Super food and for damn good reason!

-Supports Heart Health

-Chia seeds can help reduce blood pressure 

-Stabilizes Blood Sugar


-Anti-Inflammatory Properties 

-Weight Loss

-Detoxification and Elimination

-High Quality Protein


-Provides Fiber and Other Nutrients

-Brain Power

*2 tablespoons of Chia = 7 grams of fiber, 2 grams of protein, 205 milligrams of calcium, 5 grams omega-3

I've been taking the Chia seeds for a while now, and have noticed a tremendous difference in my overall mood, energy and even complexion (now I'm not sure if it's just a coincidence or if the chia seeds really did help my complexion) But I have noticed brighter clearer skin/clearer Yayah! :) 

Now one of my favorite things about chia seeds is that I can add 1 tbls to my shake or water and I will get fuller faster without adding a buncha calories or over eating. This is def a plus cause I have been on the fit train for quite sometime- 
(Gotta bring sexy back ya know!) lol
-I take 2 tbls a day one in the morning and 1 at night. I let mine sit in my liquid/water/shake/oatmeal etc for about 5 minutes before I ingest it. This allows the chia seeds time to enlarge- which u will notice they grow about 3 times their regular size and have a gel like coating on the outside. To be perfectly honest- the seeds are not all that appealing when I look at them, but they are flavorless and serve a buncha health benefits which makes the yuck looking-ness of them. Def worth it! :)
You can read a whole bunch more about these seeds if you'd like on the following links

If you already use them or start to use them, please feel free to tell me what u think of them :)
I hope these help and benefit you as much as they have helped me and benefited me- much love and hugs, stay beautiful ladies xo
