My top faves..

So if you don’t know.. now you know.

 

I am an AdvoCare junkie! #GiveMeAllTheVitamins

I just learned about this awesome company a year ago and up until this past June I really haven’t been able to try most of what AdvoCare has since I was nursing still. You bet though ever since I stopped nursing I’ve been trying almost EVERYTHING.

With my new active lifestyle I’m working out a lot more and doing more strength training then cardio. This is where my first faves come into play..

 

This is my pre-workout. You all probably know all about Spark.. and Catalyst is just an everyday.. but my newest faves here are Arginine Extreme (I usually mix with my Spark), love! I feel like superwoman.. and then this one deserves the praising hands emojii.. O2 Gold. Seriously if you do any kinda cardio.. (I always try to hop on the treadmill or stairmaster after I get done with weights) this amazing little supplement gives you a 2nd pair of lungs! I’m not all smart with the science and all but what I do know is I freakin love it. I’ve had asthma all my life and I’ve always struggled with cardio.. As I’ve gotten older my asthma has pretty much gone away but still my endurance sucked. I couldn’t run and really it was jogging any longer then prob 2mins if that. I just got done with my cleanse and you really shouldn’t take any supps while cleansing so when I tried to run.. man I could really tell though how much it helps me. Anyways I could go on and on but I’ll stop. Feel free to ask me more if you wanna know more.

 

^^this was mail day for my challenge and some one thought all the *SEALED* <<don’t worry>> bottles were great music shakers.

 

Here’s another fave.. Yes I like to drink wine because I enjoy the taste and all but it’s also more to just relax or unwind.. This a great substitute.. less calories too ;) And the perk you can drink it before 5 haha and still drive.

I really needed it this day when someone was extra cranky.

And my newest fave is Advocare’s new skincare line.. To be honest so far I’ve only tried the cleanser and the Rejuvenating serum. Still waiting on the eye cream to be restocked. I swear that stuff sells out every week!! I love both of these though.. especially the cleanser. I recently tried out a few other products from a friend who sells Rodan & Fields skincare.. FYI this was before Advocare released any news they were coming out with their own line.. and to be honest I was just so disappointed. The products are ok don’t get me wrong.. but for how much I spent (and it was a lot!) I was expecting my acne to disappear completely. Nope.

SYS™ Cleanser - Great skin starts with clean skin. This SYS™ Cleanser contains bilberry, sugar cane and green tea extracts. Cleanser leaves skin refreshed and renewed without a lingering residue.  Best results come with consistency in usage.

 

I gave it it’s chance about 3 months.. and then couldn’t wait to stop and try Advocare’s stuff. Not just saying this.. I really had clearer skin and so so smooth after a week of using it. The softness was immed..And just saying it’s like so cheap..under $25 – but with my 40% off so beyond worth it.

 

 

 

And for fun if you’ve never really heard of AdvoCare .. here’s more of what is offered. See? Something for everyone!

 

 

I’m gonna stop now.. ha! I have so many more that are my faves but if you’re ever looking for something, whether it’s just vitamins or maybe you like to workout, shoot me an email: rachelcloutier64@gmail.com and I’d love to give you my opinion or recommendations!

Cyber Friday Black Monday

Lately whenever I get the “itch” to hop on the computer and talk to you all, it’s about 15minutes later where I finally am able to. Have I mentioned I cannot wait until Black Friday or Cyber Monday whatever day so we can get a new laptop?!

What’s the normal “life expectancy” of a laptop? We have a pretty decent HP that’s like prob 4 or 5 years old.. It’s just seen its days.. and the latest issue?? Tonight I was clipping my nails.. and well one of my nail clippings now lives under the ? key Ewwgross  <<< that took me like 5 tries to type that key btw.

 

PS. Christmas is like just around the corner.

 

I am so excited! Kenz is such a little person now it’s adorable.

 

I can just picture her, helping me hang Christmas ornaments (and taking them off) and unwrapping her gifts! Her eyes lighting up at all the Christmas lights!

We’re not gonna go all out again this year though on gifts. Sister has plenty of clothes and enough toys she doesn’t even play with. And let’s be honest.. I can wrap up all her stuff she has now and she wouldn’t even notice.. Wait.. that’s freakin genius! When you see all the gifts under my tree this year.. Well..

What a good tradition to start!

 

For everyone else.. You betcha.. I’m giving Spark, Gingerbread bars and Oasis! #justsomeofmyfaves

 

 

Totally random.. but as I was looking on Pinterest for Christmas ideas.. I found this one.. umm totally starting NOW. How cool would this have been to get when you graduate high school?!

Once a month for their lives, put $10 in a photo album for your kids....around $2000 buy the time they graduate/turn 18

 

 

Ok and hours later, after I’ve gotten lost in Pinterest land.. I mean..I really had a blast just now organizing my boards and deleting pins like cray. I need to have a pinterest party.. Elizabeth?! Do it! Plan it! k? So many fun things..

G’night world.

P.s. New laptop suggestions?

I have a problem…

It’s a bit OOC..

 

I screenshot on my phone all day- everyday.. Currently there are 333 pictures in my screenshots album. See? OOC!

Sure I HEART PINTEREST but it’s easier to just go scroll through my album.

Things like this.. Shout out if it’s your pic! Hey girl, Hey!

 

I can’t wait to try this once it gets cooler here.. ordering this flava asap!

 

Lots and lots of food ideas.. We like to eat pretty clean so most are healthier but then you get ones like this..

 

 

 

 

 

 

Idea’s for Kenz.. Genius right?!

 

 

GROSS huh?! Confession.. although I eat pretty healthy there are those every once in awhile times where we have some quick fast food meal.. this made up my decision of to never eat at McD’s again. Yuck!

 

Often some like these where I bring to my girl Lisa..

 

Will do this next year.. Our front yard is still under construction –and UGLY.

 

Love this look with the hydrangea box and tv stand.

 

Ps. tried this.. MAGIC! Just so easy.

 

I still have a little “fluff” I’d like to get rid of.. trying this combo once I get done cleansing!

 

LOVE THIS.

 

 

THIS. I’m so excited to be apart of this. Head over to Tausha’s blog to follow along with what she put together. I’ll share mine, and maybe some others but not all 40.

It’s no secret to some of you.. My marriage has been a lil bit of a rollercoaster the past few years.. (ya, guess what?We’ve only been married for 3.. ) Anyways.. one thing about my husband and I.. we don’t ever want to just give up. We know it takes work. Sometimes a lot. Thank you to Tausha for putting this together at the perfect time.  P.s. If you haven’t seen it yet, watch Fireproof on Netflix.. at first I thought, oh jeez it’s kinda a bad Lifetime movie.. but then it just hit me. This was us. And then I realized there are soo many couples having the same problems we’re having.. This movie is about the book so I can’t wait to really dive in tonight.

 

 

Anyways.. I can go on and on with screenshots. Like I said I have 333. Probably more since I started this post. Hope you screenshotted some of these too ;)

 

Have a great week!!!
