MY 3 RULES I LIVE BY

There is nothing more I love than routine, I’ve found thats the only way I thrive.  I like everything in order and organized, so I can think more clearly. I’ve gotta have a clean space, and so thats exactly how I view my diet.  I stopped counting macros a while back and it definitely was a nice break, but I’m back to counting and I must say I definitely like the whole structure part of it.  It’s like a mini little win everyday seeing those numbers. But I think it’s just a seasonal thing for me.  I usually am very good at it during spring summer and winter, but for some reason during fall time I just start to intuitively eat.  Both are fun!  

Anyways,  It’s much easier than it sounds once you get used to it, trust me!  I used to be so lost, but now it’s just second nature.  You can read more about MACRO COUNTING in the post I did there.

I wanted to share with you 3 simple rules I live by that have made succeed at this healthy lifestyle I’ve created..  So here we go!

  1. WATER.  I drink a lot of water during the day.  It’s so important to drink your water!  Especially right when you wake up in the morning.  That should be the first thing that goes in your body.  I really focus on getting hydrated in the morning.  I do some lemon and pink salt too, sometimes.  But mostly drink at least 2 cups when I wake up every single morning. This will really get things moving, if ya know what I mean!
  2.  NOURISH BODY ALWAYS.  Give your body nourishment! It craves it!  Monday-Friday  I count macros FOR SURE no questions asked.  I made a rule for myself that I won’t fall off the band wagon during the week.  I’ve done this for so long that I just don’t want to, I know how It makes me feel and I know how I want to feel waking up everyday too.  When I feel good I get more accomplished during the week.  Lately, I’ve only been doing 1 cheat meal on the weekend, but used to do 2.  Just really depends on the month!  Now, If there is a birthday or holiday during the week, of course I’m going to enjoy, but I don’t go overboard.  I’ll indulge but also make sure I’m still getting proper nutrients too.  Also, chose your parties wisely.  If its your third time out that week and its your cousins sisters, aunts birthday, you prob don’t need to go.  If you eat out a lot, don’t sweat!  Just ask for a protein and veggies on the side.  If you get a salad, take off the bad stuff like bacon and cheese.  Then do dressing on the side and ask for a lemon to squeeze in your salad, then add a tiny bit of the dressing. 
  3. CALENDAR 7 DAYS A WEEK OF EXERCISE IN: I set my alarm to wake up at 6am everyday to work out.  This way I know I’ll get at least 5 days of those in.  Sometimes I get all 7 which is great, but that rule is a must.  

What are some of your rules you live by? Share them below!  Hope these help give you an idea for yourself!

MY TOP 3 FAVORITE BROW CREAMS

I’ve always been really big into brows! They shape the entire face and make everything come together.  I like them bold and thick, but what happens when you don’t have much to work with. All good because these 3 brow creams are a game changer.  I like to use creams, rather than a pencil.

  1. BROW ZING BY BENEFIT.  Comes with a powder and cream.  You put the cream on first, and then place the powder on top of the brow, sort of like a setting powder, but it makes it more bold.  Comes with two little brushes that I actually love. The cream helps you shape your brow more and ready for the powder.  I used this for years until I decided to try some different ones out. I got the darkest color, but I would probably go with medium now.  Depends on my skin tone.  When I have a spray tan I like to go a little darker, but when I don’t I’ll go lighter on the brow.
  2. URBAN DECAY BROW BOX.  This one is all powder if you don’t like any creams, but the reason I like this is because it’s subtle.  If you don’t like a bold brow, I’d go with this one!
  3. DIPBROW POMADE BY ANASTASIA.  This is the current one I’ve been using and love it!  It’s a pomade, so you can really get in there and get the brow of your dreams! I start from the bottom of my brow to the end, then fill in the base and move to the top.  Ps I’m going to share how I do this in my stories today @lovebylynn, so make sure to watch the tutorial.  I’ll also save it under my highlights under “make up” so you can watch it whenever.  I use THIS BROW BRUSH for the pomade.
