Movin' On Up!




I think with each move packing gets more difficult. We are moving to a new house in June and I'm kind of behind with the packing.  Another move I'm happy to tell you about is that my blog is moving from Blogger to Wordpress.  I've been wanting to do this for a while.   Hopefully one day I'll get to move my other blog too.

Summer will be here soon and last week I shared with you an article about some great ways to stay hydrated during the summer.  The pictures of water are so pretty.  I think it's a much healthier way to make the water taste better. Check out the article here.

Also I shared a video about the best belly fat burning foods.  Some of these foods I'm sure you already have in your kitchen. You can watch the video here.

I just finished my second week on the Fitness Blender Abs workout plan.  I love that the workouts are around 30 minutes a day.  I'm so busy right now and I need a quick and effective workout.  That's exactly what I get from Fitness Blender.

Dates to remember:

I have some reviews coming to you but only after my blog has had its makeover.  Thanks to Blogelina  my blog will get a revamp as part of the #1000MomBlogMakeovers.  So excited!  The makeover is scheduled for mid-June!

I would like to thank you all for reading my blog.  I will keep you updated about the launch date. I would love to hear from you as well. Please leave comments below. Thank you!

The Best Anti-Aging, Anti-Wrinkle Serum




OZ Naturals


If you are a regular reader of my blog you know that I'm a big fan of OZ Naturals.  I've been reviewing their products for a couple of months and I'm always amazed at the results.

This time I'm reviewing the Hyaluronic Acid Serum. This is an anti-aging, anti-wrinkle serum. The purpose of this serum is to plump up skin and reduce wrinkles. The Hyaluronic Acid Serum is clinical strength and provides moisture to the skin and a healthy glow.

The serum is easy to use.  I wash my face with the OZ Naturals Vitamin C Cleanser, rinse, wait for my skin to dry and then apply the serum. After the serum I apply the OZ Naturals Super Youth Eye Gel and Super Youth Retinol Moisturizer . The serum has a light floral scent. It doesn't irritate my skin and blends into my skin easily.


I've only been using it for a week and I have to say my skin responded immediately.  My skin has a glow and it looks younger.

OZ Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Serum is cruelty free,vegan, and contains no alcohol, parabans or sulfates. OZ Naturals products are proudly made in the USA.

OZ Naturals products can be purchased directly through Amazon.com. And feel free to connect with them on Facebook and Twitter.

BFH Quick Update





Ugh! So busy with Social Media Manager School, packing and now the landlord is starting to show the house we are living in now.  I also have a social media marketing client now. So coming up with a social media strategy and writing content has taken up a lot of time as well. Still trying to remain on track. 

I was able to get out and walk more this week.  The weather has finally started to cooperate.  I missed going for long walks.  I'm forcing myself to walk more because I have noticed the past few weeks my Fitbit numbers have been down and I am more sedentary with school and working. I am thinking about starting one of Fitness Blenders new programs.  I will decide next week which one.  I'm looking at the FB Abs workout plan and it might be that one. 

I'm still doing the Do You Yoga for Beginner Program and doing a little T-Tapp too.  I have stepped it up a bit with doing Fitness Blender workouts.  I feel better after a tough workout. My favorite Yoga workout from this week was day 23. You can find it below.




I don't have a recipe for the week, but I'm falling in love with avocados again.  Putting them in everything from eggs, to salads,to smoothies, using it as a hair mask, spreading it on toast and of course guacamole! Avocados are so good for you! Read the benefits of eating avocado here

Dates to remember:

Mother's Day is next Sunday May 10th. Don't forget mama! I've already sent my card.

May 6th I will post a review of OZ Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Serum

This Week In BFH: The What Happened to Spring? Edition






Well it’s supposed to be spring but it doesn’t feel like it.  Winter still has its grip on us. The week before I was wearing just a jacket outside. This week I had to break out the winter coats and hats. We checked the weather before leaving for our trip to Montreal last weekend. I believe it was 20 degrees colder than Accuweather predicted.  I know warm weather will be here eventually.  I just needed a bit of a whine.


This week in Beauty, Fitness and health 


I received some sad news this week. The Go Fit Gals will be ending their partnership. So I will no longer be a GFG Ambassador. Even though they are ending their partnership Risse will continue to be a nutritionist and I’m sure I will continue to post her recipes.  PJ is still a trainer that I will follow. I’ve removed almost everything GFG Ambassador  from my websites and changed my Twitter name from GFGKelly to CravinChocolate. Because I’m always craving chocolate.


I’ve been very busy, but loving it.  I completed two reviews for the blog this week.  The first review was of the Fit and Fabulous in 15 Minutes with T-Tapp book.  I enjoyed reading the book and was very inspired by the success stories.  You can read the review here.


The second review was for ERA Ageless skin care.  I had never heard of this brand until a few weeks ago.  The products were great.  The best part of this skin care brand is that they formulate the products for specific areas of the face. Read the review here.



My favorite workouts this week.




                              







And I was on the Twitter and saw that one of my all-time favorite trainers Kathy Smith has a walking program. Check it out here.


Recipe of the week:


This is one of my faves from the Go Fit Gals. It’s called Avocado Baked Egg. I love pairing avocados and eggs.  Tons of protein and healthy fats.  Keeps me full for hours!  Recipe right here.


Dates to remember:



I don’t have any specific dates for them, but more reviews are coming.  Also hoping to have more giveaways.  Stay tuned!


Hoping spring has sprung where you are!

ERA Ageless Skin Care Products Review

ERA


Defy aging, naturally. 


I was asked by ERA Ageless to review some of their skin care products. I received the Starter Kit which includes several sample sizes of their skin care products. ERA Ageless only uses the best organic natural ingredients.  Each product is formulated for a specific part of the face. ERA Ageless has been around for 30 years. Their products are cruelty free and researched for five years. The products help to heal your skin naturally.  


ERA Ageless
The Starter Kit

Reveal. Replenish. Rejuvenate.


After using the Repair & Restore Facial Peeling Gel and the Replenishing Elastin & Beta Carotene Mask my skin looked airbrushed it was so smooth! The products have no scent to them and didn't irritate my skin.  The Firm & Lift Eye Serum and Firm & Lift Eye Cream both blended easily into my skin and reduced the fine lines under my eyes. The cream was thick, but not heavy.  The Age Defying Moisture Cream also absorbed quickly into my skin and kept my skin moist and smooth for hours. The Age Defying Facial Serum is light and I could feel my skin being lifted.
