Last-Minute Holiday Gifts 2011

Hey everyone! I’ve been completing my holiday shopping and I figured I would do a little last-minute holiday gift idea for those of you still stuck on what to get your family and friends. These are my favorites, and many happen to be on sale or offering special discounts. Hoorah! Here we go: (FTC: I was not paid or sponsored by any of the brands or companies mentioned below. Enjoy!) 1. Skin Apotheke Ayurvedic Skin Care. A favorite skin care line of mine, handmade and expertly formulated. The Rejuvenating Eye Creme is my all-time favorite eye cream, and I’ve mentioned it before (it was also on my must-have products list in 2010). Right now all products in the store are 10% off with coupon code HOLIDAY. 2. 23andMe DNA & Ancestry Test. One of the coolest, most unusual products out there. Normally $99 plus $9/month, it’s now on sale for $76. Just order a kit, the kit arrives, you spit in a little tube, send it back, and wait 2-6 weeks for your results! The test analyzes your DNA for fun things like hair color and ear wax, as well as serious things like health traits and disease risks (which you have the option of viewing or not). The best part for me was the health traits and ancestry testing, which shows your full genetic heritage. 3. DoMatcha Green Tea.This dainty little can contains matcha, a powerful powder chock full of antioxidants and amino acids. Plus, EGCG, which is responsible for helping with weight loss and cancer prevention, is 137 times more bioavailable than regular green tea. 4. Paleo...

Talking Beauty with Sarah Fragoso + Cookbook GIVEAWAY! (Closed)

Hey everyone! Today I have an awesome interview with Sarah Fragoso, author of the super popular Everyday Paleo website and Everyday Paleo cookbook. She is one of my favorite paleo folks – she’s a working, traveling, super busy mum of 3 boys and maintains a fantastic diet and exercise routine for herself and her family. Her cookbook is also an excellent tool for anyone wanting to follow an Epic Beauty Guide-style diet for clear skin, since her recipes are quick and tasty. Annnnd…we’re giving away a copy of her cookbook! Keep reading… 1. Your cookbook is a favorite in my household collection. How long did it take you compile this tome and what was your favorite part of creating it? It took me almost a year to create and compile Everyday Paleo.  My favorite part of creating it was the simple fact that this was a family project.  My husband and my children were all extremely involved, interested, and honest throughout the process and I could not have done it without their loving support. 2. If you could pick one recipe from Everyday Paleo, which one would you say is your favorite? My personal favorite would have to be the Steak Chile Rellenos but my families absolute favorite is hands down the Everyday Meatloaf. 3. You have three adorable sons and are in great shape. Could you tell us how you got fit post-pregnancy? Changing my eating habits was number one in my physical transformation. For fitness I worked out twice a week at Norcal Strength and Conditioning under the guidance of Robb Wolf and his amazing wife Nicki...

Review: Vapour Beauty & Japanese Skincare Revolution

Heyloooo! I just uploaded a new video reviewing Vapour Organic Beauty products and Japanese Skincare Revolution. You can watch it here: Stratus  Instant Skin Perfector, $44. Smells great, feels phenomenal, very moisturizing, erases imperfections and gives you a “glow,” and also doubles as a foundation primer. Elixir Lip Gloss in Twinkle, $20. Smells great, non-sticky, very moisturizing, doesn’t taste bad like most lip glosses. The Japanese Skincare Revolution, $13. One of my favorite books on skincare. Very simple, holistic approach to beauty with practical advice. Plus, the author is living proof that it works.
