pushlvHave you noticed the older you get the harder and more harsh alcohol is to your body? It dehydrates your skin, muscles, forces you to eat horrible for your body foods, and overall makes you feel crappy for at least 3 days straight lol. I swear I can have one glass of wine or 5 margaritas and no matter what my body is yelling at me the next day. The reason for this is due to the alcohol in your blood stream…which effects ALL organs of the body: brain, liver, skin, bladder, intestines, stomach, etc.  So to rid of that alcohol immediately what is the one thing they give you as soon as you get to the hospital for dehydration? Yup- an IV. It hydrates you and cleans your blood stream. Im pretty sure IV’s are in heaven :)

So I have been following this apparent “Hangover Cure” that has taken over Vegas this past year called, “Push LV” . Not only is it heaven in a bag– but you are nursed by, of course, drop dead gorgeous nurses. lol… Not like us ladies really care but I just think the whole concept is brilliant. To put it in a nutshell for you, here is what their “About US” page says about PUSH LV:

“You’re in Vegas to have fun; lots of fun! This often leads to some not-so-fun mornings and hard to get-ready-for evenings. You know the feeling, headache, nausea, lethargy, weakness, dry mouth, moodiness, short attention span, extreme thirst, and so on. Whether you’re here for business or on vacation you cannot afford to waste any time not at your best.
When to PUSH the hangover-Imagine you’ve been out at the pool all day in the hot sun and want to head out to a club at night. Getting a PUSH before you go out will rehydrate you quickly and, presto, you are ready for your night on the town. Too much partying that night: get another PUSH! Now you won’t miss a thing, even if you have to be at that convention all day. It is never too late to PUSH your hangover away, saving your day, saving your vacation or saving your job. Get a PUSH before and after partying for the best results.
Getting a PUSH will not prevent alcohol toxicity, and any such activity should be kept in moderation, regardless of a pre-party PUSH or anticipation of a PUSH after such activity. However, getting a PUSH should allow you to recover quicker from the effects of too much sun, partying or other activities that cause dehydration. Rather than crawling around without help and spending your valuable time recovering from the activities you want to continue, we can PUSH you into fully maximizing your stay here in Las Vegas.”

And not only do they have “hangover”cures, but they have several types of IV’s:
Turn Down:  IF YOU NEED SLEEP OR ARE EXPERIENCING ANXIETY THE MEGA DOSE OF CALCIUM AND MAGNESIUM WE ADD TO THIS IV WILL PROVIDE COMPLETE RELAXATION.
Turn Up: IF YOU JUST NEED A LITTLE BOOST OF ENERGY THIS B12 SHOT WILL GIVE YOU THAT EXTRA PICK ME UP.
Light Up: DO YOU NEED TO STUDY OR MAYBE YOU ARE HERE FOR A MEETING AND LAST NIGHT HAS LEFT YOU A LITTLE FOGGY. OUR COQ10 SHOT WILL GET THOSE NEURONS FIRING AGAIN.
Too Much: IF YOU HAVE HAD A LITTLE TOO MUCH FUN AND YOU ARE FEELING HUNGOVER OUR PERFECTLY BALANCED PUSH BLEND WILL GET YOU BACK TO NORMAL.
Too Dry: IT’S A DESERT OUT THERE! IF THE DRY HOT WEATHER HAS GOT YOU FEELING DEHYDRATED WE ADD A DOSE OF GLUTATHIONE TO YOUR IV TO IMPROVE THE LOOK OF SKIN IT ALSO HAS THE ADDED BENEFIT OF IMPROVING DIGESTION AND CLEANING YOUR LIVER.

kirapicKira was one of my very first girl friends here in Dallas- and she is one of my closest to this day! We met at a previous Med Spa job and we clicked! And when I say her skin and body are not photoshopped in our new product shots- thats not an exaggeration! I took the photos myself, and I “photoshopped” them myself (which basically means i cropped them and fixed some shadows of my reflection) lol. Her skin is so beautiful and like porcelain and she literally has no cellulite on her body! But this is not JUST genes… she works very hard. And what you put in your body and how you treat your body reflects from the inside out. She is a professional skin care consultant and takes care of herself more than anyone i know. So you can’t hate her for it! She works for it! Kira currently works at Advanced Skin Fitness in the uptown Dallas area. I go there myself when I can afford the time! The reason I recommend Med Spa’s for skin care over a typical Spa is because they have professional nurses and MD’s who’s lives revolve around new and improved skin care and beauty procedures… it’s the real deal!

Here is Kira’s Skin Care regimen! Most of these products I can vowge for and have actually blogged about before! I am also a HUGE fan of Skin Ceuticles, Revision, & iSClinical! Stay tuned for her fit snacks and work out clips! Follow her on instagram to keep up! Xo

oil pullingHave you heard about this strange yet “must know more” trend happening in hollywood that is claiming to be the “Ancient overall health remedy?” Well i’ve been hearing about it and wanted to give it a try and research it to see what it’s all about!
Define: “Oil pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic remedy for oral health and detoxification. It involves the use of pure oils as agents for pulling harmful bacteria, fungus, and other organisms out of the mouth, teeth, gums and even throat.”
How and What?: The most effective oil pulling is done by placing around a tablespoon of cold pressed organic sesame oil into the mouth on an empty stomach and swishing the oil around the mouth for approximately 10-15 minutes and then spitting it out.  Spit out in the trash instead of sing as the oil may build up and block your sink… and swish around warm salt water, and brush and floss teeth as normal.
Other oils such as extra virgin cold pressed  coconut, sunflower and olive oil have been used, although sesame oil is considered one of the best oils for this practice.
Health Benefits:” Specifically, using sesame oil as an oral health agent helps to reduce the amount of S. mutans (germ) count in both teeth plaque and mouth saliva. Scientists believe that the lipids in the oil both pull out bacteria, as well as stop bacterial from sticking to the walls of the oral cavity.It is believed that these oils help the lymphatic system of the body as harmful bacteria are removed and beneficial microflora are given with a healthy environment to flourish. Because of this holistic perspective, oil pulling has been used as a preventative health measure for many other conditions.”
Other possible benefits of oil pulling for overall health include:
• Migraine headache relief
• Correcting hormone imbalances
• Reducing inflammation of arthritis
• May help with gastro-enteritis
• Aids in the reduction of eczema
• May reduce symptoms of bronchitis
• Helps support normal kidney function
• May help reduce sinus congestion
• Some people report improved vision
• Helps reduce insomnia
• Reduced hangover after alcohol consumption
• Aids in reducing pain
• Reduces the symptoms of allergies
• Helps detoxify the body of harmful metals and organisms

I did some research and wanted to just put the high lights in a nut shell for you! This doesn’t seem like there are any cons to giving this a try… so might as well give it a shot! Crazy how many random ancient remedies are out there huh? I am going to start using coconut oil because as you know if you have been following my posts, coconut oil is my absolute #1 go to for EVERYTHING.. it has hgh anti bacterial properties and doesnt have such a bad taste! SOO many health benefits to that alone! Join me and give it a try for about a week in the mornings and let me know what you think! xo

So this is my first blog in a while… & to be absolutely clearly and real with you, this is something I PROMISE you I will be keeping up and MAKING time for like I use to for all of my mermaids!
I would like to highlight a beautiful young woman from Dallas I have recently been intrigued by and recently got to briefly know. She has always been extremely sweet and complimentary toward me. .. which, naturally, does not go down well with me because I have this guard that assumes “no girl is just nice to you for no reason!” As most of us do! But I have learned wrong & she  is one of the few that has shown me that with out even knowing it. I have met her, loved her, and been in touch with her, and have been following her fit journey this past year via instagram.
I am VERY driven by her due to her positive attitude and dedication. She has come a long way and that is exactly why highlighting her tips on my blog are no question and exciting to me to share with all of you who are looking to get in shape and healthy FAST! Before I share her secrets here is a mini bio:
Her name is Debbie, and she had a breakup about 10 months ago that drug her self esteem down and she became depressed… the gym had become one of the things that saved her! She was not “over weight” but certainly unhealthy and unhappy. (before photo shown)
deb

She will now be competing in her very first bikini competition May 3rd, and than moving on to compete int he BEST in the game “Europa” May 9-11.

NO. You do not need to compete to feel and look good. This is a personal goal and may not be for everyone, however, it definitely gives you a reason and quick discipline! Giving you quick snack tips from one who went within 10 months of being a shredded barbie and dong it in a natural and healthy way is the kind of foot steps we want our mermaids to take!

We will give you after photos of her after she competes and let you know what she was eating the week of just so you can see the difference of what you eat and put in your body does!

Until than here she is now, and here is our first yummy and easy to do snack! AKA what I am not eating for breakfast with a side of fruit and cottage cheese!
SWEET EGG WHITE MUFFINS:
All you need is:
A muffin Pan
Coconut Oil Spray
Egg Whites
Cinnamon
Stevia

**Preheat over to 345 degrees. Blend egg whites, a dash of stevia, a dash of cinnamon. Spray  Coconut Oil spray in muffin cups. Pour in mixture. Cook 10-12 minutes**

You have the healthiest little breakfast egg white muffins you’ll ever have! Yumm!! You could even pre make them and store them in the refrigerator and heat back up for about 30 seconds for your breakfast on the go!

waist trainingCorset Training started back in the Victorian Era where women obsessively wore corsets every day that would completely change and distort their torsos for the womanly hour glass shape… although it worked… it caused major organ damage, ribs to break, lungs collapsing, passing out, and even reproductive problems. The reason for this is because they wore them WAY too tight and made them tighter over time.. crunching their organs. However, there is a semi-new and trending safer “waist training” that i have become quiet interested in. It has been popular in the hispanic community for a long time but women are starting to catch on. The results are great and they are not used in the same overly exaggerated way. There is a set that you can get that you wear one during the day casually and one that you wear while you are working out. They are used to compress heat and help your body contour and sweat out the excess fat in the right places. They are not to the extreme tight and crazy like you think of back in the day.

I came across this from a model i follow on instagram who is a health/workout connoisseur. She wears them and swears by them. Her body and shape look great and do not look in any way deformed or harmful. I really believe in body wraps, compression, and detox to help release certain fats and toxin so i believe these work too. I just ordered mine today. I will do before and after photos and let you know how i like them!

Of course just like anything else, do not expect to loose fat or build a great shape simply wearing a waist trainer. Clean eating, drinking lots of water, and working out take a major part in this process as well. I am really insecure about my waist because i feel like i have a short torso which means i have to work a lot harder at keeping my flat tummy.. i also have no hips from the front. WIth this i am hoping to help keep my tummy flat as well as a contoured shape! I ordered tiny tea tox and was going to do it but i decided to wait and do it together with my waist training. The results should be fabulous! :))

Waist Training:

  • Midsection control 
  • Increased thermal activity 
  • Loss of inches 
  • Mobilizes fat cells 
  • Stimulates perspiration
  • Contours and Shapes Waist

The online store i am choosing to use is www.perfectmysilhouette.com because they have sooo many different options and they are from Miami, FL. They also sell creams and gels for application and body wraps as well as body shapers for you to wear under clothes. (Like Kim K wears) to contour your shape under clothes if you are feeling insecure. The one i am purchasing is a package like i said where you get 2 for 1. One you wear whenever and one you wear for the gym. —> http://www.perfectmysilhouette.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=60&product_id=69

I ordered a size 34. I am 5’6 and 120 lbs.

You can follow them on instagram as well to see all of their before and afters and more information! @perfectmysilhouette

Me and my fiance celebrated thanksgiving this weekend in the country where his family is, and let’s just say while they all played sports- i played with my hair lol… and of course ate everything is sight :(
I have never learned how to french braid and it is something i have always wanted to teach myself. My mom use to french braid my hair when i was younger all the time. This weekend his cousin Mary Katherine gave me french braid pig tails! I havent had them in sooooo long! I wanted to rock it for a lot longer than two days but since i dont know how to do it, i couldnt adjust all the loose ends and hair sticking out (lol) so i had to take them out this morning. My hair looks GORGEOUS! It has a very natural looking wave from top to bottom and even some volume. My hair was dry when she did it and i kept it in for almost two days. But if you do this when your hair is wet and wake up and take it out- i promise you wont have to even brush your hair, and just leave with fabulous locks to work! I would suggest first trying it to see how it works our for you. If you love it, do it on a thursday night after a shower and wake up and take it out and have the hair for the weekend! The reason i think i love the look of the two french braid tails over one french braid is because i think it gives you a more defined smaller wave.

Here is before and after:
braids
hairafterI have been wanting to rock the french braids with some hoop earrings and a colored lip with a cute casual outfit for winter, so i think i will do this again the next time i have an eventful weekend. Ill braid my hair at night before bed, wear the braids the next day, and than take them out before a dinner date that evening <3. There is nothing sexier than natural looking exotic beach waves!

Here is a youtube tutorial that i found, I will attempt to do it myself this weekend too. This one is good because she is doing it herself rather than someone else doing to her hair: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V8R9vY4jWu8
Let me know what you think and how yours turns out!! I hope everyone has an amazing thanksgiving week! And don’t forget to send me any tips and secrets you would love to share! Send to info@themermaidlife.com! Xo

curlingironI have recently been avoiding the same-ol same-ol curls/waves style that has been the trend for a while now. Im really loving the fresh blowout look with texture and movement. Think Victorias secret hair. I bought a 2inch curling iron from Sally’s about a year ago with hopes it would give me the same style as if i just used a round brush to blowout my hair or put giant curlers in- because who has time to style and blowout their own 24inch long hair?! I deff dont and i deff dont have the patience to do it myself or the money to go to a dry bar twice a week! While the curling iron doesnt give you the volume a blowdryer and round brush does, it DEFINITELY gives you the same texture and flow…. a very light wave for every day. It is sexy but not too big or just too much and deff a time saver! If you are wanting volume at the roots, just use a round brush and blowdryer on your roots and hair around your face  (yes it works even when your hair is dry) and than use the 2inch barrel curling iron on the rest of your hair.

This isnt the best photo but it is the most recent i took at a winter photo shoot for our boutique last week. I did my own hair and makeup and it flows really pretty in photos for movement.
You can get this  curling iron at sallys and it is the hot tools brand. It costs around $35-$40. I really like this brand because my hair is wavy/curly naturally so i need a lot of heat to get my hair to cooperate lol. And you can always adjust the temp on all of their tools!

tinyteaYup that’s right! Finally a legit detox that has so many naturally healthy detoxing benefits, but you get to still eat and carry on with your normal healthy lifestyle on top of it! I just ordered the 14 day TEAtox called, “Tiny Tea”. I start it tomorrow and will record my results and things i notice with my body and skin at the end of day 14. I just wanted to blog about it now because they have already sold out of the 28 day! I follow them on instagram and see sooooo many before and after photos through out the day on my newsfeed.

Now remember, you can take as many pills, exercise a million times a day, and try all kinds of detox methods… but nothing will work  for the long haul if you are not sticking to a healthy lifestyle. While you may see slight results– you will not see the full potential unless you are eating healthy and clean and drinking tons of water.
I have gone from working out 5-6 days a week hard core and eating super clean to cutting both in half due to my new business. It really is tough to be extremely busy and find time… and hell the ENERGY to go home and cook and clean and STILL workout on top of it.. or wait until 3:00pm for lunch and still be satisfied with a salad. But at least i try as often as i can still and do things here and there for a boost like i am doing now with this tea! Im hoping for more natural energy and to clean out all the nastiness i have built up the last 5 months! SO here is all you need to know and more! :))

What is it?
The Tiny TEAtox is to assist you when feeling heavy, bloated, lethargic, and to make small aesthetic changes to your body. It performs an intensive cleanse and nourish of your digestive system to assist with weight loss, fluid retention and toxin removal.
“Excess fat, fluid and toxins aren’t removed in the way you may know it. No – these stubborn little buggers take a much tougher approach. Unlike other detox’s that contain a lot of laxatives that momentarily flush out toxins the tea blend contains chinese herbal ingredients that truly cleanse and nourish your digestive system.
Your digestive system plays the most integral role in being able to maintain a healthy weight, or to achieve desired weight loss. TinyTea supports your digestive system so that your body can fall fall into its natural intended rhythm required for optimum health.
Tiny Tea has many properties that perform the following jobs: drying phlegm (a cellulite aggravator), reducing waste, fat and assisting the digestion of food stagnation.”

How to use:
Drink 3 times a day 30 minutes after each meal. Drop 1 bag of tea in boiling water for 5-7 minutes. You can add a dash of honey and/or lemon for extra kick if you must.

I can NOT wait to try this! Order directly here: http://www.yourtea.com/collections/teatox-shop/products/14dayteatox 
OR visit their website at www.yourtea.com  to read about their other tea options! They even have one for men, cellulite, and even help with fertility! Which i will be trying next year when we start trying to have babies! <3
Tiny Tea: weightloss, detox, and energy (TEAtox)
Anti-C Tea: Cellulite & Toxins specifically in thighs and booty (Cleansing & Purifying)
HER Tea: Water retention (Every Day Tea)
Fertility Tea: Nourishes the reproductive system. For ladies wanting or trying to conceive. (TEAtox)
MAN Tea: Enhances the growth of muscle mass while promoting a lean, cut frame. (TEAtox)

loreal eyelineI don’t really wear much makeup during the work week, but when i do go all out- especially on the weekend- or in this case for halloween-eyeliner is a MUST! Eyeliner on top, bottom below lashes, AND on water line. It makes your eye color pop and you can turn your eye shape into any shape you want! I love “cat/egyptian” eyeliner style with the swoop tip on the outside. Its super sexy and flattering to any eye and face shape. So my makeup artist Angela was using this eyeliner on me and was *sighing* with excitement as she was swooping it on my lids and said, “GIRL! have you tried this eyeliner? It’s not even mac, its L’OREAL!” And for a makeup artist to brag about a cheaper brand is pretty rare. So she was explaining to me on why she loved it and when i looked in the mirror i was super shocked too. She used the same eyeliner for both top, bottom, and even water line. It lasted the entire shoot and even the rest of the night! It ALSO comes with a PERFECT little liner brush! So i went and bought it for myself to try and see if i could get the same effect and i surely did! SO not only does L’OREAL have my absolute #1 favorite mascara over any brand in the world (voluminous mascara .. click on the link to see a recent past blog about this mascara for more info and why its my fav).. and yes im being dramatic and saying world… but now a favorite eyeliner that is basically 2 in 1 type on eyeliner: Infalliable Lacquer Liner 24 HR.  The little brush it comes with is to die for too. Its made perfectly for making the “swoop” and getting in the very tiny inner corner as well as brushing nicely on your water line!
L’OREAL is really on point these days and saving us ladies some money and annoying mall trips just for one small makeup item! YAY!!
Here is a photo from a halloween party i had and went to this weekend where i used the eyeliner for dramatic halloween egyptian makeup on me and one of my best friends…. even on my finacé for his costume (hes gunna kill me for saying this and posting this pic hehe). =D

Go get it and use it for halloween too and let me know what you think!! :)

tanyaWhen i saw tanya for the first time she is one of those girls you couldnt help but stare at.  lol.. and maybe possibly instantly judge her. haha. No but seriously she is beautiful and has a bangn’ body! You can tell she takes care of her self and spends the time and energy doing so. Like i have said before- nobody is born perfect. Yes, some our blessed with more physical “beauty” than others but most of the “pretty girls” you see and admire actually have to work for it. AND most of the time it is actually part of their JOB: To be beautiful. Thats why i want to do the “model of the week” posts because what better advice to get than from the professionals who live it! Tanya’s advice was very simple and straight forward with her best tip in each category:

Body: She does Bikram Yoga and drinks lots of water. You may think like “thats it?” Well, have you tried Bikram Yoga?! Heres a little info on the major benefits and what it really is:
“It has been proved and experienced by millions that these 26 postures systematically work every part of the body, to give all the internal organs, all the veins, all the ligaments, and all the muscles everything they need to maintain optimum health and maximum function.  Each component takes care of something different in the body, and yet they all work together synergistically, contributing to the success of every other one, and extending its benefits.”
This yoga is also the “heated” yoga. Where the room is heated or steamed and you loose tons of calories from the major sweating:
“Hatha Yoga flushes away the waste products, the toxins of all the glands and organs of your body. It provides a natural irrigation of the body through the circulatory system, with the help of the respiratory system. It brings nourishments to every cell of your body so that each one can perform its function and keep your body healthy. Bikram Yoga also employs heat to further that cleaning process: When you sweat, impurities are flushed out of the body through the skin.”

Tanya’s Favorite beauty products:
Hair: WEN Lavender :

  • Ideal for: All hair types, this is our volumizing cleansing conditioner.
  • Incredibly moisturizing, our Lavender Cleansing Conditioner is enriched by the calming, soothing, relaxing and invigorating properties of lavender and also stimulates the scalp to promote healthy hair growth. While the creamy formulation won’t weigh down hair, it is rich in moisture and works exceptionally well on all hair types to create body and volume.

Skin: The BodyShop Tea Tree Acne System :

  • Organic tea tree oil controls oil, combats existing blemishes, and prevents new ones without over-drying skin.
  • Lemon tea tree oil refreshes and invigorates the skin and has a refreshing aroma.
  • Tamanu Oil has soothing properties that prevent dryness and reduce scarring.

Makeup: Bare Escentuals/Minerals :

  • Award winning bareMinerals diminishes the look of imperfections and reduces shine for a flawless finish throughout the day
  • 108% skin hydration increase
  • SPF 20
