Be Confident Don't be Distressed

Happy Thursday Barbies and Kens!!!!! Today I have a blog post for you. This outfit was easy to put together and very inexpensive.

For my outfit I wanted an effortless sexy look without trying too hard. With that in mind I went fro this Forever21 distressed sweater worn as a dress ($1.98), Steve Madden over the knee boots (old similar here).

To complete my outfit, I did a very neutral makeup look.  Being a mom don't excuse you for being sexy and chic.

Thank you for reading. Until next time, stay fab and be creative.

Buying a Luxury Item on a Budget

Everybody like to wear and own a piece of luxury item. These items are not cheap and usually requires us to be rich, thrifty or budget well. In this post, I will explain how you can achieve a piece of luxury without going broke.
I love to spurge on bags and shoes because I think I can pair them with inexpensive pieces. Also, these pieces are usually durable. When I attempt to buy these pieces, I usually;

1) Buy them when they are on sale if the store offer sales. I never buy items full price because they always go on sale. I also look for coupons to use on top of the sale as well as to give me free shipping if it is online. I also try to shop during major holidays or the changing of the seasons because most store try to sell all the past season items out. I also go to discount store like Ross, Marshalls, TJ Max, Off Sak Fifth Avenue or Nodstrom Rack. If I buy online, I use Ebates and get a percentage of what I pay for the item back with a check in the mail. Ebates is great if you shop online. Want to sign up click here.

2) Do not empty your bank account to buy the item. Put aside a manageable amount every week, 2 weeks or month. Every penny counts and you will get there eventually.

3) You can also buy the item preloved. There are so many consignment sites and used brand shops that sell luxury items that are in impeccable condition. Here are a few of the sites that I would recommend Tradesy, Fashionphile, Therealreal, Brandoff on Ebay, Gallery Rare Japan on Ebay, Brandworks on Ebay, Elady and Poshmark. These store have items at a fraction of what you would pay for it in the store and they are in great condition.

4) There are different tier of luxury items so buy what your pocket can afford. If you cannot buy the Louis Vuitton Neverfull, go for a Coach City Tote or a Michael Kors bag. They have the same look but different price tag.


These are the tips I have for buying a luxury piece on a budget. What do you do to buy your luxury items? Leave your comments in the comment section. I am eager to know.

Thank you for reading. Until tomorrow, stay fab and be creative.
XOXO,

Get Rid of Bloating Instantly/ Teami Tea

Happy Hump Day Barbies and Kens!!!! I am here to share with you how you can get rid of your bloating instantly. The items you will need are Teami Tea and a waist trainer. This is something that lot of us females have to tend with. I know mine is cause from chewing gum, beans and lentils, whole wheat and fruit and veggies.
What do you do when you get bloated?
Instructions
1) Take a half a tablespoon of Teami Skinny Tea and put it in a tea packet or strainer, pour some hot water on it.
2) Allow the tea to steep for 1 to 2 minutes. If you allow it to steep longer or if you use too much, it will be too harsh on your stomach.
3) While the tea is steeping, put on your waist trainer.
4) After the tea is finished steeping, drink it.

To see the instructions in action, check out the video below.

Belly Fat Burner & Body Cleanse Drink


Want to get rid of that stubborn belly fat, speed up your metabolism and cleanse your body? Try this ginger, aloe vera, lemon and water drink.

Benefits of each Ingredient


Ginger
Ginger lights a fire under your metabolism, prevent constipation and make unwanted belly fat disappear. To see more results, drink or cook with ginger very often.

Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera as you know has a lot of great uses. As for weight loss, it is most efficient in that process because of the anti-oxidants it contains. These anti-oxidants help the delay of free radicals in the body. It also stimulates the metabolic rate in the body which in turn increases your energy level.

Lemon
Lemon gets rid of all the toxins in the body and will crush fat. Once the fat is out of the system, the metabolism level will increase.

Warm Water
A glass of warm water on an empty stomach first thing in the morning will cleanse your body flushing it of all the toxins. Water and liquids help in the process of breaking down food in your stomach and makes the digestive track work as it should. Water can also prevent constipation.

Recipe for the Drink
1 tablespoon of aloe vera juice
1 tablespoon grated ginger
1 lemon
1 glass warm water

There are 2 ways to make this drink, you can do it as a tea or you can do it as a "water" drink. I did mine as a water drink because I think it works more effective this way.

How to make ("water" drink)
Prepare aloe vera by washing and cutting.
Prepare the ginger by washing and drying.
Cut your small lemon and extract the juice.
Add the aloe vera, ginger and lemon juice into a blender/ninja/magic bullet and blend.
After add the juice to the warm water. Let the mixture sit for about 10 minutes and then drink.

NB: Do not make too much of it at once because remember you should drink it warm.

You can also watch to see how I did it from the video below.

Taste of the Drink
This drink is very tasty. You will not taste the aloe vera in it. The dominant tasting ingredients are the lemon and ginger.

Results
I use it as a cleanse because over Thanksgiving and Christmas I ate a lot of unhealthy foods and I want to clean my system of them. To see maximum results, drink this for 5 to 7 days in a row. You can drink it once or twice a day. If you do once a day, take it first thing in the morning before you eat breakfast. If you drink it twice a day drink it first thing in the morning and then before you go to bed.


Get your body right in 2017 so you will have a healthy year. If you have ever tried this drink, let me know how it worked for you or how you made it. Also let me know in the comments what you do to help cleanse your body.

Thank you for reading and watching. Until Monday, stay fab and be creative.

XOXO,
JB

Christmas Gift Cravings Fitness Editon

The new year is a couple of weeks away and I know lots of us will have fitness on our list of New Years Resolution. Christmas is usually the time where we buy and or make our requests and or purchases for these items. Today, I created a list that will make life easier for you. All you have to do is click or share the item you like and buy.

1) Workout Gears
You can get these anywhere but I prefer to buy mine on Adoreme.com. The set is $24 and there are a wide variety to chose from. Their shipping is fast so you will get it in time for Christmas. The quality of their workout clothes are great. I own a few of the pieces myself. Here'a the link to the workout gears pagehttp://www.adoreme.com/workout-clothes.html 
You can check out their website or follow them on their social media networks to see when they launch new items.


2) Sneakers/Workout Shoes
There are tons of shoes to chose from but the one I recommend is the Nike Lite Run 2 Women Running shoes. They are trendy, lightweight, supportive and inexpensive. You can buy this sneakers from JC Penny for $75 plus if you use Ebates you will get some money back. Sign up for Ebates and get a chunk of your money back when you buy your gifts this Christmas.

3) Gym Bag
You need a bag to put all your gym essentials in. The one I recommend is from Adidas. Again there are lots of bags to chose from. I recommend this one because it is trendy and light weight. You could take it to work without anyone knowing it is you gym bag. You can snatch it up here for $49.99. Remember to use Ebates to save you some coins

4) Headband
A sweatband is a must. You will need something to help absorb your sweat while you workout. I recommend this one from Amazon. It is $3.97 plus free shipping if you have Amazon Prime. Get it here.

5) Headphones
Unless you attend a class when you workout or you like to listen to your thoughts I would suggest headphones to make your workout more fun. I recommend this Beats by Dre wireless earphones. They are on the pricier side. They are $229 at Walmart but you can get something back if you sign up for Ebates. You can get the headphones here.

There are more minor items that you will need that I did not include in this post. Let me know what fitness items you are craving for the Christmas. Or let me know what fitness item you will be gifting.

Happy shopping. Thank you for reading. Until tomorrow, stay fab and be creative.

XOXO,
JB
