Lancome & SheSpeaks DreamTone

Disclosure:  This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks and Lancome.  They provided me with a Lancome DreamTone for review purposes.   The opinions expressed are 100% my own.

Lancome DreamTone ($98) is an innovative serum specially formulated to reduce the appearance of dark spots, instantly and visibly correct pigmentation, uneven skin tone and color imperfections.  DreamTone comes in three skin tone specific shades.  They are fair, medium and dark.  I am fair so i chose to try the 1, which is for fair skin.  They are designed to instantly transform the look of your skin.  After I used the skin tone correcting serum for just over a month the results were phenomenal.  I have been getting so many compliments.  Everyone says I am glowing and I look even younger than I did before.  I was asked to bare my skin with my #bareselfie.

I took the chance to join in with Lancome and SheSpeaks when they invited me to participate in this social media campaign.  I love using their innovative anti-aging product and don't mind at all sharing this candid bare skinned selfie.  I used the DreamTone twice a day for the past few weeks and here are the spectacular results.

If you want to take part in Lancome’s #DreamTone #bareselfie challenge yourself, here are the details of this campaign:

10 Minute Solution: Butt Lift DVD Review

New 10 Minute Solution: Butt Lift DVD provides quick workouts for a bodacious behind.  I love this DVD.  I have done all of the workouts separately and one day I did them all 5 together.  The DVD has 5 complete 10 minute routines.  Rear view rescue starts now with the newest release from the best selling 10 Minute Solution DVD series.  This workout DVD delivers five fun, creative and effective approaches to getting a booty that defies gravity.  No need to go south of the equator, or even leave your own home.  These mini workouts are geared to fit your busy lifestyle with just 10 minutes at a time.  Whether you prefer heart thumping cardio or Pilates infused matwork, Los Angeles based fitness expert Christine Bullock has put it all together into one jiggle busting DVD.  There is even a bonus abdominal workout.  This new DVD is already available in stores and on Amazon.com for a suggested retail rate of $14.98.

Christine Bullock's inventive workouts include:

Butt Lift - Standing and floor moves that target the glutes, hamstrings and lower back.  This one is fun and the time flies as you get that back side firm and lifted.

Cardio Booty Camp - Jump, squat and kick that rear view training into high gear to blast calories and solidify those assets.  This is fun.  I am not really a huge fan of cardio but 10 minute is totally doable.  I enjoy this one a lot.

Upright Booty - This is an all-standing workout designed to lift those buns as high as they'll go.  I find this one challenging.  I have a hard time balancing but I am able to complete it and I feel it working almost immediately upon completion.  Each time I get better.

Butt & Thighs - Graceful ballet, yoga and Pilates inspired moves fuse together to shape a sexy backside and sleek sculpted legs.  This one really gets my thighs sore but it's worth it!

HIIT Butt Lift - Torch calories and tone with super charges Tabata style intervals.  Very intense section that is fun and it works.

Amazing Abs - Sculpt a sexy midsection with moves that attack from all angles.  Great little add on, I always need an ab workout!

No equipment needed for this total tush transformation.

Christine Bullock has certifications in Pilates, yoga and Barre.  She teaches group fitness including TRX and HIIT at Equinox, Yoga Works and Studio Pilates, all in the Los Angeles area.  Bullock is also certified as a nutrition and wellness counselor.  She is a former ballerina with the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre, an experienced fitness model and a write and lifestyle host.

Barre Break Thru - Jennifer Galardi Review

Total Fitness DVDs sent me an amazing DVD to review.  It's called Barre Break Thru by Jennifer Galardi.  I love the barre workouts and this is one of my favorite.   Barre Breakthru will reshape your body and help you bound beyond your fitness plateaus with its perfect exercises.  Jennifer's three-phase workout is sure to appeal to the dancer and athlete in you.  I am really happy with this workout and I can't wait to do it again.  Jennifer Galardi really knows her stuff and she makes it fun and easy to follow.
WARM UP: This blood pumping “mini-workout” is a great way to start any routine!  You’ll hit every muscle in the body to prep you for more advanced exercises through the program.
  CARDIO: Break through the same old barre routine with these fat burning, heart pounding moves!  Jennifer will lead you up a steady climb that gets a little more intense every minute, leaving you breathless at the top.  Grab your towel and get ready for some sweat!

TONE AND STRENGTHEN, STRETCH AND LENGTHEN:  Targeted and precise exercises will tighten and tone you, head to toe. No muscle, small or large, will be left behind! Polish off your moves with an extended stretch session, crucial to maintain flexibility and range of motion.  Then say “Ahhhh.”

Jennifer Galardi is a dancer, fitness professional, yogini, nutritionist and all around health nut and is known for tying it all together to help her students achieve maximum results and maintain balance.  She is a student first, a teacher second, empowering others to make the same positive changes for a happier and healthier life as she has made for herself.  You can find her here, there and everywhere spreading the message of harmony between the body, the breath and the mind.

Jeanette Jenkins Sexy Abs Cardio Sculpt Review

I have a few other Jeanette Jenkins DVDs and I really do like her.  She is tough and quite effective.  I was super excited when Total Fitness DVDs sent me Jeanette Jenkins Sexy Abs Cardio Sculpt to review.  I am a huge fan of Kelly Rowland and just look at those abs!  I really want abs like both of these ladies.  I have done this workout a few times now.  I have to admit that it is tough.  Tough is good.  Tough changes your body.  Jeanette Jenkins is easy to follow and gives clear instructions. 

This would be a nice gift for a friend or loved one this holiday season.  This workout is over an hour long.  It starts with a high energy warm-up and then gets more intense with fun and effective total body cardio exercises that will boost your metabolism.  Once you get that calorie burn going, Kelly and Jeanette motivate with moves from various methods of training.  Which include kickboxing, sports drills, weight training, yoga, pilates, ballet, calisthenics and even their own signature moves like Back Attack, Starfish to Toe Touch, Arabesque to Balance Stick, Long Lean and Toned and Ballerina Twisting Press!

This workout is sure to keep you entertained.  You will not get bored.  You will achieve results if you do this workout consistently.  They say that for best results you should do the workout in it's entirety 2-3 times a week in order to have shapely shoulders, defined legs, toned arms, a sculpted back, lifted booty and sexy abs. 

I have done several chapters when I am short on time or the whole workout when I have extra time.  This DVD includes the following:



Chapter Summary:
  1. Warm-up (6 Minutes)
  2. Metabolic Boost (5 Minutes)
  3. Total Body Blast (5 Minutes)
  4. Amazing Arms & Legs (5 Minutes)
  5. Bye Bye Love Handles (5 Minutes 30 seconds)

Tasti-Lee Tomatoes Review



Tasti-Lee Tomatoes are premium vine ripened tomatoes. 

Tasti-Lee is a new, naturally-developed* vine-ripened tomato variety that brings significant improvements to health, flavor and freshness in grocery store tomatoes!  For health, this new tomato contains high Lycopene, up to 40% more than regular varieties.  It has the right balance of sweet & tangy flavor for an eating experience that will put a smile on your face. And for freshness… Tasti-Lee brand tomatoes have been bred to stay on the vine until fully ripened by Mother Nature, yet remain firm all the way to the store shelf and your kitchen counter! 

Facebook / Twitter / Pinterest / Youtube

Tasti-Lee Tomatoes are sweet, the perfect texture and just the right ripeness.  They are non-GMO.  They are really juicy and taste great.  Lately the tomatoes we get in our local grocery stores aren't very good.  When I ate the first Tasti-Lee tomato I was hooked.  We ate all of the sample tomatoes in the first two days after they arrived. 


How can you find Tasti-Lee Tomatoes?  Use the store locator HERE.  I found these in Publix near me.

Based on the video game series created by: Electronic Arts       
                                   

DreamWorks Pictures’ “Need for Speed” marks an exciting return to the great car culture films of the 1960s and ’70s, when the authenticity of the world brought a new level of intensity to the action on-screen. Tapping into what makes the American myth of the open road so appealing, the story chronicles a near-impossible cross-country journey for our heroes one that begins as a mission for revenge, but proves to be one of redemption. Based on the most successful racing video game franchise ever with over 140 million copies sold, "Need for Speed" captures the freedom and excitement of the game in a real-world setting, while bringing to life the passion for the road that has made our love of cars so timeless.

The film centers around Tobey Marshall (Aaron Paul), a blue-collar mechanic who races muscle cars on the side in an unsanctioned street-racing circuit. Struggling to keep his family-owned garage afloat, he reluctantly partners with the wealthy and arrogant ex-NASCAR driver Dino Brewster (Dominic Cooper). But just as a major sale to car broker Julia Bonet (Imogen Poots) looks like it will save Tobey's shop, a disastrous race allows Dino to frame Tobey for a crime he didn’t commit, and sending Tobey to prison while Dino expands his business out west.

Two years later, Tobey is released and set on revenge but he knows his only chance to take down his rival Dino is to defeat him in the high-stakes race known as De Leon — the Super Bowl of underground racing. However to get there in time, Tobey will have to run a high-octane, action-packed gauntlet that includes dodging pursuing cops coast-to-coast as well as contending with a dangerous bounty Dino has put out on his car. With the help of his loyal crew and the surprisingly resourceful Julia, Tobey defies odds at every turn and proves that even in the flashy world of exotic supercars, the underdog can still finish first.


In an exciting return to the great car culture films of the 1960s and ’70s that tap into what makes the American myth of the open road so enticing, “Need for Speed” chronicles a near-impossible cross-country race against time — one that begins as a mission for revenge, but proves to be one of redemption.

Two years later, Tobey is released and set on revenge but he knows his only chance to take down his rival Dino is to defeat him in the high-stakes race known as De Leon — the Super Bowl of underground racing. However to get there in time, Tobey will have to run a high-octane, action-packed gauntlet that includes dodging pursuing cops coast-to-coast as well as contending with a dangerous bounty Dino has put out on his car. With the help of his loyal crew and the surprisingly resourceful Julia, Tobey defies odds at every turn and proves that even in the flashy world of exotic supercars, the underdog can still finish first.


“Need for Speed” is presented by DreamWorks Pictures, produced by Patrick O’Brien, John Gatins and Mark Sourian, and directed by Scott Waugh. The screenplay is by George Gatins. The story is by George Gatins & John Gatins, and, based on the video game series created by Electronic Arts. The film releases in U.S. theaters on March 14, 2014.

Element: Targeted Toning Pilates for Beginners Review

I love Pilates.  I enjoy feeling relaxed and strong.  Pilates is the type of exercise that I would love to do each and every day.  I was so excited when I got a copy of Element: Targeted Toning Pilates for Beginners to review.  Element is the best selling mind/body fitness video brand.  They bring the country's top instructors and workouts to people all over the world.  In this new DVD, Elizabeth Ordway leads three powerful 20 minute programs and a bonus core strengthener too.  Ordway is one of the top five Pilates experts in Los Angeles (according to RateYourBurn.com).  Her method is progressive with a classical tone influenced by her studies with Pilates and alignment experts including Romana Kryzanwka, Lolita San Miguel and Eric Franklin.  It is designed to reach even the hardest to access muscles, the effectiveness comes from the movements that radiate from one's center or powerhouse.  With repeated use, the user will achieve that long, leave physique for which Pilates is known.  You will feel strong and graceful too.  The DVD is set in a beautiful outdoor setting and it feels almost spa like.  The DVD is available in stores now and on Amazon.com too for a suggested retail price of $14.98.  

You could do all three workouts from start to finish or do one segment at a time.  Elizabeth Ordway shows you three 20 minute, no equipment needed routines.  The segments are:

Total Body Lengthen & Strengthen - This one begins with the use of the breath to connect to the core.  It tones and defines all of the major muscles in your body.  

Long & Lean Waistline - This segment stretches and tones your core muscles to create firm, flat abs and a sculpted waistline.

Lower Body Lift & Sculpt - Fire up your entire lower half of the body with this innovative leg series that includes Ordway's favorite seat lifters.

The 10 minute core strengthener bonus workout includes some of Ordway's best moves to flatten your midsection and strengthen your lower abs.  She will work the obliques to get those parenthesis that define a slim waistline.

I have done each segment separately and the entire DVD all at once.  It can be tough at times and it is quite effective.  I really love this DVD and I highly recommend it to beginners and beyond.  Elizabeth Ordway is the founder of Movement Studio LA.  She is a certified Pilates instructor with over 10 years of experience.  She started doing Pilates herself in her early 20's to heal her own back problems from scoliosis.
