Say no to the nasties!

Did you know the FDA has no regulations on skincare in the US? Under the law, cosmetic products and ingredients do not needFDA premarket approval, with the exception of color additives…guys that is SCARY!

What does this mean? Well on a basic level anything can be added to our products without being regulated.

Parabens, for instance, are a class of widely used preservatives in cosmetic and pharmaceutical products. Chemically, they are a series of para hydroxybenzoate’s or esters of para hydroxy benzoic acid. Parabens are effective preservatives in many types of formulas and they cause cancer so why they heck would we want to be putting them in or on or even near our bodies?

Arbonne has chosen to follow the guidelines of the Eurpenan Union and the Eropean Cosmetic Directive because their standards are SO high. This makes me feel GREAT about what I am using on my skin!

Do your research! Thoug stors like Target and Macy’s offer an affordable and convient options they are not always the best for your skin.

A Clear Future

A clear future is helpful right. Nice to know where we are heading. Im married to my planner…not literally but I’d be lost without it.

That brings me to Arbonne and its new product line called Clear Future. Very fitting if you ask me. Who wants acne? Not me! This set has changed and helped many people. Check out the results of my friend’s daughter after a month.

It’s got some awesome botanicals such as witch hazel in it. Its calming and healing!
If you or someone you know suffers from acne Id love to help you out!

Right now they come in 5 flavors- chocolate, lemon, caramel, peppermint chocolate, & cococabanana (my favorite! )

They are the size and texture of salt water taffy but much better for you!

Central Coast Weekend Living

What a fun and FULL weekend! Started on Friday as soon as I left my morning job. Got some Arbonne time in at Scout (favorite coffee shop in SLO) with Paige (From Healthy Hits the Spot-check out her blog)
Friday night we joined 7 other ladies at Guispees in Pismo Beach for a ladies night out and some YUMMY food. I LOVE Italian food! I ordered the butternut squash ravioli…um delicious isn’t even the word! Fresh baked bread with a cheesy garlic spread!! It was heavenly!

image

Here’s my food and our group of ladies !

Saturday morning I went on a trail ride through the vineyards in Santa Ynez! BEAUTIFUL! Didn’t get photos of our ride but a few before.

image

I rode Nick a 6 year old quarter horse with a heart of gold and an easy going personality.

Saturday evening I went to Paige’s for a fun movie night  (We saw The Best of Me a Nicholas Sparks movie) she made us homemade popcorn  (um AMAZING) and there was wine and fruit. Lots of laughs and tears because who doesn’t cry at least once during a Nicholas Sparks movie?!
Sunday was a quiet day finally. I hiked with my hiking buddy Julie and her dog Rocky in the morning. It was SO HOT, but we we got out there and did it!

We are having strange weather here lately, but it makes for beautiful sky’s!

Amazing and breath taking!
