Ladies Night Out Outfit: Cute & Comfortable

It's ladies night out and we wanted to have some out here in Canada...I thought I would share with everyone what I decided to wear. I wanted to be comfortable and cute at the same time, and I must say that I think that I pulled it off pretty well.

M.A.C. Fresh Brew Lipstick

This lipstick right here is everything!!!

JamaicanMakeupArtist on YouTube use to rave about this lipstick all the time and it always looked so great on her skin tone, plus I was looking for a perfect I had to go to make and pick this up. Usually I don't get too many things from M.A.C. because I once believed that their prices were way too high, but after comparing them to other high end makeup retailers I've come to realize that their prices aren't that bad.

Anywhoo, back to the Lipstick, I love to wear it alone, with lip liner or a gloss. The only lip gloss or lip glass I should see that I wear with it is Viva Glam V which is also by M.A.C., the two paired together it dynamic. Fresh Brew is a part of their Luster line, it is very moisturizing and long wearing which I love.

Great Lashes for a Great Price

I want to start off by saying that I love, love, love this flippin's the best that I have dried to this day. I have been rocking it for some months now and each time I wear it I have friends and family ask me if I got lash extensions, and I am always happy to tell them no and point out that it's the Maybelline Great Lash Mascara, it makes everyone's lashes look me. If you are looking for a mascara that gives you length, volume and stays on until you wash it off, then this mascara is definitely for you. It is very inexpensive and you can find it in pretty much every drug store.

Diet Talk: GNC Total Lean Shakes & Smoothie/Shake Recipes Under 200 Calories

So I love making smoothies and using them as meal replacements, especially when I am on the go. I would make them the night before and pop them in my freezer if I know I'm not going to have time the following day and grab them on my way out the door. They are also really great as a pre-workout meal.

So I decided that I had to share the recipe with you all. I hope you try them.

Definitely let me know how they come out and if you tweaked them at all so maybe I can give it a shot.

-1/4 cup of each fruit (2 pieces)
(pineapple, peaches, mango, strawberries)
-1/2 small banana
-1 tbsp. oats
-3/4 cup Tropicana 50 Orange Juice
-1/2 tbsp. honey
-1/3 cup of spinach

Calories = 200....(182 if you minus the oats)      
Fat = 0g
Carbs = 39.8g                                             Fiber = 2g
Protein = 2g                                               Sugar = 40g

-8 pieces of fruit
and the rest of the recipe stays the same

Calories = 181...(162 if you minus the oats)   
Fat = 0
Carbs = 22g       Fiber = 2g
Sugar = 27g       Protein = 3g

VANILLA PROTEIN SMOOTHIE (9-10 ounces) (Use Blender)
-1/2 cup of vanilla Almond milk
-1/2 cup of water
-1/2 medium banana
-Dash of cinnamon
-1 scoop of GNC vanilla protein powder
-Ice (5-8 cubes)
-2 stevia or 2 equal

Calories = 138         Fat = 3g
Carbs = 16g            Sugar = 8.2g
Fiber = 2.5g            Protein = 13.5g

And if I decide that I don't feel like going through it and making my own, I turn to my good ole GNC Total Lean, Lean Shakes which come in three different flavors (Strawberry Cream, Vanilla Bean and Chocolate). It retails for $9.99 per 4 bottle case, but if you become a gold card member (free) then you get 20% every month for the first 7 days of each month bringing it down to $7.99 per case. They also come in a case of 12.
