Ok I am thriving now what?

I have been asked about my Thrive experience quite a bit and there are a few things that I clarify... A LOT!! These are some of the key questions I have been getting.

1. There is no miracle weight loss drug... Thrive will help with appetite control and give you energy but what you do with that energy matters! If you use it to bake and cook and eat chances are you aren't going to lose weight... However, if you use it to motivate yourself to exercise, get up and move and combine it with a better diet you are going to see results!

2. Does it keep you up at night? No I fall asleep better now. I am using up the energy and come bed time I am ready for it!

3. Does it make you jittery? Not at all. I have used numerous pre workouts, diet aids, and etc that have been packed with all the wrong energy types. These make me jittery and that nervous energy makes it hard to concentrate. It also made me a complete klutz! This is a very calm energy and Thrive also helps with your concentration and…

Would you brush your teeth with a washcloth? Why you need a Clarisonic!

So anyone who spends more than a few minutes with me knows that I am a HUGE advocate for the use of a Clarisonic! But why? What makes it better than other brushes? What makes it better than a sponge or wash cloth? Can't I just use my hands and cleanser? 

Why use it? You wouldn't use a washcloth or your fingers to brush your teeth would you? No because you would just be pushing all the crud and muck deeper into the cracks and crevices in your teeth. Well look at your face closely and what do you see? Yep! Cracks, crevices, pores... what do you think is happening if you use them to wash your face? 

Here is a video using fluorescent make up to prove the point.....



You see my point... Pretty cool right....
So there are a lot of other brushes out there... Why choose Clarisonic?1.Tried and true- Clarisonic invented sonic skin cleansing in 2004 and today has sold over 15 million of its patented – and much loved – devices that help to reveal healthy, younger-looking skin. They are the pio…

Thrive experience week one!

My initial intention was to post once a day about my Thrive journey. But...well.... Life happens. This has been an emotional roller coaster of a week for me. My favorite uncle that I love dearly is in the hospital and wasn't doing well, work was a huge stresser (more so than usual), and it gave me no time to blog. The upside to all of this is that my Uncle is doing miraculously better, and I kept it together. I honestly am giving thrive so much credit on this. My emotions stayed level and my energy stayed up . I have stuck with the regimen easily because there aren't a million steps and it's making such a huge difference!

Thrive Experience ... Day 1.

Yay! Day one and I am excited to start this journey! 
It is 8:30 am. I have to work today and even though I have had eight hours of sleep I feel tired and weak. I am so ready to not feel like this. I refuse to believe I am getting old lol!!


I put my patch on at 8 am and will take the daily capsules when I finish this portion of the entry. I also have my shake ready for around ten. Keeping my fingers crossed!! I did have a little coffee this morning (wasn't thinking and did it out of habit) but only about a quarter cup.  I like to have a little coffee with my cream so we are talking a minimal amount! Today is a perfect test for this because it is going to be a crazy day at work!! 

It is Ten am and I have taken the capsules and as predicted work is a madhouse. I always seem to want to take on more than I should....I am wonder woman though ..... right????  I keep saying I won't cram so much into my work schedule but then when it is time to say no or make the client happy the cli…

I am so tired of being tired... Getting my thrive on

I am so tired of being tired. I used to be a bundle of energy. I could sleep four hours and be ready to conquer the world. In the past year it has slowly been dwindling to non existent. Six months ago I had a complete blood work up done.  I discovered I have a pretty big vitamin D deficiency (how does that happen when you live in the sun?) and I already knew I was a severe anemic. Between the two of these I stay drained. I feel like I need a nap a half an hour after I get up and I have never been a napper!

I forced myself to get back to the gym but it kills what little energy I have. I started seeing posts on my cousins site telling every one about the amazing amount of energy they had and how this product was changing their life. I read the posts and kept up with it. Straight up? I am a skeptic. I am in the dermatology/cosmetic/beauty industry and I am 100% a seeing is believing kinda girl. So I spoke to them about it... a lot!! I am sure I drove him crazy with all my questions and …

Scentbird... My latest obsession!

I have the hardest time finding scents that I like, much less fall in love with. My body chemistry can take the most elegant and beautiful scent and turn it into a horrible and vile scent, I can't stand to perfume shop because at the end I have ten scents that I can't stand on my arms (because they change on me I can't just use a paper swatch), and my head is congested and throbbing.  Then it seems like just as soon as I do find something that I like someone at work or in my group of friends decides to start wearing the same thing. Because of this I have a rather large selection of full size perfumes that probably should be passed along to my daughters.

The remedy for this? Enter scentbird...


How does it work? 

You sign up and take a little quiz...



Then name three perfumes you like.....

 They then give you a list of perfumes that match your profile and you can start adding to your que. 
Your que is a list of which perfume you get sent next. You are always welcome to choos…
