New year, new you! The time is here and we are all thinking about our New Years resolutions. There are several things on my list. To name a few, continue to grow deeper in my relationship with The Lord, spend more time with my family, devote more time to my blog and last, but definitely not least… GET INTO SHAPE!

Most of you don’t know this, but I’m a certified personal trainer and use to compete in body building competitions. That was back in my hay day of course…. aka, before kids. But I’m determined to get back into shape!

With that being said, I’ve been on the hunt for affordable workout clothes. When looking for workout clothes the two most important things that I look for are comfort and affordability. I love finding cute, affordable workout clothes, that’s not only fit my body, but fit my budget as well!

On my recent grocery trip to Wal-Mart I decided to go check out their workout clothes. To my surprise, they had some super cute stuff at really affordable prices. I’m really excited to share with you guys the affordable workout clothes I found!! Nothing was over $15! My shoes are from the Nike Outlet! They are soo comfy and perfect for working out, running or just trotting around town in! They are super lightweight and the material is very breathable with I like!

Target and Old Navy are also having some great sales right now on activewear! Target it BOGO 50% off and all of Old Navy’s activewear is up to 50%off!! I’ll link some great finds below!

Latest Make-Up Favorites

I don’t always wear make-up, but when I do, these are what I wear!

1.They’re Real Push Up Liner: I love this eye liner. It’s so easy to apply and most importantly it DOESN’T come off! I hate when I’m wearing an eyeliner that smudges at the slightest touch.

2.Benetint: I love the look of this on both my lips and cheeks. It gives a gorgeous rosy color without being “too much.” I also love the fact that it literally last FOREVER! A little goes a long way!

3.bareMinerals Bareskin: This foundation goes on so smooth. It gives a flawless coverage, without looking too heavy. The perfecting face brush with the little hole in the middle is on point. That’s where you put the foundation. It’s easy to use, apply, and makes short work of putting on foundation!

4. They’re Real Mascara: I love mascara. It’s something that I use even if I’m not wearing any other make-up. It’s amazing what a little mascara and lip gloss can make you feel like! ( A human) lol This mascara goes on easily without any clumps or flakes. The best thing is that it last all day long and doesn’t end up under neath your eye giving you those ugly raccoon eyes!

5.Watt’s Up: Talk about glowing! This stuff it perfect for finishing your look off with a dewy or glowing look. I especially love using this in the spring and summer.

6.bareMinerals BarePro: I use this over my bareMinerals Bareskin foundation. It gives the perfect matte look and last all day long. This is also perfect to wear alone if you just want to get a quick light coverage.

7.Smashbox Lipstick: These shades are on point. They last several hours and go on a smooth and creamy!

8.Covergirl trunaked nudes Eyeshadow: The perfect palette of nude eyeshadows. They go on smooth, last all day and best of all are less than $15! I love that I have all the shadows I use in one place, which is especially great when I’m traveling.

How I Whiten My Teeth: Professional At Home Teeth Whitening + Giveaway

Smile Brillaint

I’ve always been a sucker for at home teeth whitening. In fact, I used to whiten my teeth every two weeks with drugstore whitening strips. However, several things happened. First and foremost it got way to expensive, second my teeth and gums became so sensitive I had to stop drinking ice water, and lastly, I got lazy.

For the past month I’ve been trying out Smile Brilliant, a professional at home teeth whitening system. They mail you a kit that includes molds, so that you can get custom fitted trays to professionally whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home.

Having a beautiful, white, smile is so important to me. Not only is my smile one of the first things people notice, it directly correlates with how I feel. Having pearly whites boost my confidence, self-esteem and is most importantly it’s known to improve oral health.

In the past I’ve considered getting my teeth professionally whitened at the dentist, however the outrageous cost and lack of time has prevented me from doing so.

My first impression of Smile Brilliant was “wow,” this looks super easy. The instructions were simple and the supplies to make the molds for my trays were easy to work with.

I made my molds, mailed them in and a week later I was on my way to professionally whitening my teeth.

The trays I received were great quality and most importantly they fit comfortably.

I was able to see a noticeable difference in the color of my teeth after my third night. The first night I only left my trays in for 30 minutes. I wanted to get a feel for how my teeth felt afterwards. Luckily, I had no sensitivity. Smile Brilliant comes with a desensitizing gel for after your whitening session, and I firmly believe this helped my teeth not be so sensitive. After my first session of 30 minutes, every night there after I began leaving the trays in for 3 hours. Because you’re whitening at home, this wasn’t a big deal. I could still do all my motherly duties and get pearly whites all at the same time. You can’t do that sitting in a chair at the dentist!

Even after all the coffee I drink, I have yet to see my stains come back. I’ve also had several friends ask me how I got my teeth so white,so it must be working!! I am very pleased with my results and will definitely be recommending Smile Brilliant to all of my friends and family. Below is my before and after pictures. You can find more HERE. You can also find an in-depth video of the process HERE.

8 Winter Jackets Under $60

Winter Jackets

It’s finally starting to cool down a little here in Georgia. They are actually even calling for a little snow next week. We’ll see if that actually happens, but that would be really nice, if so!! The cooler weather has me excited to pull out all of my winter jackets and coats. Even though it has not been quite cold enough for heavy coats, I have been able to get some use out of the many jackets that have been stowed away in the back of my coat closet.

I’ve rounded up a list of winter jackets that are less than $60, many less than $50! I love jackets because they are pretty useful all year around. Well, unless you live here in Georgia. Then you really only use them in one season. Ya’ll do know we only have two season.. Summer and Winter 😀 haha, but seriously, it’s kind of ridiculous.

Anyways… Most of the winter jackets I linked are on major sale. With the Nordstrom half yearly sale going on it’s hard to find something you don’t like that is on sale! Most of the jackets I linked are pretty neutral. I like being able to have coats and jackets that go with just about anything. I can’t afford an expensive coat that goes with one outfit. #momlife!

Is it cold enough to wear heavy coats where ya’ll live? I feel like everyone has their go-to coat or jacket. I’d love to know yours!
