Earth Day – I Want to be Recycled Campaign

f3afeb06-ef33-4657-ba28-430b757638dc

 

Earth Day is Today, April 22. 2015. We are a family that recycles. But I know we can do more. One area we lack in recycling is the bathroom. You know how many toilet paper rolls we go through? Now I will take a shampoo bottle out to the kitchen but I’d love to add a separate recycling bin in our bathroom.

Check out the information below to see how you can make a bigger impact!

 

According to a recent study conducted for the Ad Council, 52% of Americans don’t know which items can be recycled in the bathroom. And only 10% of Americans have a recycling bin in their bathroom, compared to the 45% who have them in the kitchen.

Personal care products like shampoo and lotion bottles, toilet paper rolls, and toothpaste and soap boxes are significantly less likely to be recycled than kitchen products. New research commissioned by the Ad Council found that 47% of people are not recycling materials in the bathroom.
That’s why the “I Want To Be Recycled” campaign has partnered with Vevo’s Do It YourSelfie with Tess & Eva, who recreate the looks from today’s hottest music videos. These two glam experts, known for their DIY hair, makeup and design tips, created a new PSA this Earth Day reminding Americans that those bathroom products deserve to be recycled too!

Whether it’s hairspray, leave-in conditioner or dry shampoo, many of your favorite beauty products and packaging can take on another life through recycling. For example, your shampoo bottle could be recycled into a hairbrush, or you might find a great new dress made from the recycled plastic of your favorite bottle of lotion.

Celebrate Earth Day with a Delicious Shake from Premier Protein #MyGoodEnergy

I am focusing this year on eating healthier. Not just for me but for my family as well.

Last month Premier Protein sent me an assortment of shakes and protein bars. I was impressed. They were super fulfilling and equally delicious.

The shakes come in a variety of flavors – chocolate, vanilla and strawberries and cream. The bars come in many flavors and offer two different amounts of protein. They come in either 15g or 30g of protein. The flavors for the Premier Protein 30g Protein Bars are – Chocolate Peanut Butter, Double Chocolate Crunch, Yogurt Peanut Crunch, Peanut Butter Crunch, Dark Chocolate Mint and White Fudge Raspberry. The fiber bars with 15g are – Peanut Butter Caramel Fiber, Chocolate Mint Fiber, Cookies ‘n Cream Fiber, Honey Caramel Fiber and Chocolate Caramel Fiber. I tried almost all of them and man are they good! I did not have one that I did not like.

With Earth day coming up, Premier Protein encourages you to do your part to take care of the environment and yourself this spring season. Protein is essential to a healthy body and is responsible for many of your body’s major functions. Eating the right mix of protein, carbs, and fats gives your body the good energy it needs to stay healthy and strong.

Premier Protein’s shakes are packed with 30g of protein for only 160 calories and 1g of sugar, and provide your body with the nourishment it needs to stay energized throughout the day.  Celebrate Earth Day this April 22nd with Premier Protein’s Earth Day Dirt Shake, for a delicious snack that will keep you satisfied without the added sugar, fat, and calories.

What’s New on Netflix #StreamTeam

I am a member of the Netflix Stream Team.

I’ve been bored with TV lately and was wondering what to watch. I was caught up on all my shows and looking for something new. While surfing Facebook I saw some friends were watching Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix. How did I not know this? I love Marvel and love to be able to watch the whole season when I want to.

 

Daredevil

Now I did not see the originally movie but that’s okay. I’ve trying to get caught up with Marvel ever since the Avengers came out three years ago.

Let me just say I love Daredevil! Of course Charlie Cox is a bonus. He is so handsome.

“Marvel’s Daredevil” is a live action series that follows the journey of attorney Matt Murdock, who in a tragic accident was blinded as a boy but imbued with extraordinary senses. Murdock sets up practice in his old neighborhood of Hell’s Kitchen, New York where he now fights against injustice as a respected lawyer by day and masked vigilante at night.Netflix has some great new shows out now and more to come this summer!

I was also checking out Bloodline. I like that it’s set in the Florida keys, however it makes me miss our yearly summer vacations to Islamorada, which is the setting of the show. I’ve only watched the first episode but will be back for more.

“Bloodline” is a dramatic thriller that explores the demons lurking beneath the surface of a contemporary American family. The Rayburns are hard-working pillars of their Florida Keys community. But when the black sheep son comes home for the 45th anniversary of his parents’ hotel, he threatens to expose the Rayburns’ dark secrets and shameful past, pushing his siblings to the limits of family loyalty.

I loved How to Train Your Dragon and am happy to see that How to Train Your Dragon 2 is now on Netflix and also Inspector Gadget. I used to watch the original show many years ago.

Spring is here and that means new Make Up colors are out. Also time to clean out your old make up.

Here are some tips to cleaning out your make up bag:

First tip would be to go through your makeup in categories. ie, first do all blush, then next do all eyeliners.

As you go thorough them one by one, ask yourself when was the last time I used this? Do I even really like it? If the answer is never use it, or eh, don’t really care about it, toss it.

Next tip would be to check expiration dates. Not all makeup has them, but for instance, if you’ve had a mascara longer than 3 months, it’s advised you toss it. Make up categories have different expiration dates.

Eyeliner: 6 months to 1 year

Mascara: 3-6 months

Blush, eye shadow, and other powder cosmetics: 1-2 years

Foundation: 6 months to 2 years

Lipstick: 2 years

And make sure to clean your brushes!

I was sent a few of the new Hard Candy Eye Shadow Collections to try. I was not much into make up until about 6 months ago. I had a few lessons from my cousin who LOVES make up.

In my package I received the Guilty Pleasure Collection, Aphrodisiac Collection and the Birthday Suit Collection.

Here are some pictures of the colors on my arm. I only picked the colors that actually showed color. There were several that did not have much pigmentation to them.

The Aphrodisiac collection had some really pretty blues that will be great this summer.

 

20150416_172650

The Birthday Suit Collection had an awesome black/grey color.

20150416_173042

The Guilty Pleasure Collection had a few colors with good pigment but beware of the glitter! Lots of glitter in this one. Not sure I want glitter all over my face.

So while there were only a few pretty colors to be had in each collection, for $6 it’s not too bad.

 

Hard Candy Top Ten Classics, $6.00 are sold at Walmart. Each collections contains ten vivacious shades to create the picture perfect look. The collections range from a soft natural glow or a bold fun finish. And each pallet comes with a mirror and two brushes.

Available in Naturally Gorgeous, Smoke Out, Green with Envy, Feelin’ Blue, Pinking of You, Rated X, Raining Men and Guilty Pleasure.

The Hard Candy collection is available only at Walmart and Walmart.com.
