My newest find.....

Bikram Yoga?

Yogiraj Bikram Choudhury is the founder of the worldwide Yoga College of India. Born in Calcutta in 1946, Bikram began Yoga at the age of four with India's most-renowned physical culturist at that time, Bishnu Ghosh. Ghosh was a celebrated physical culturist and the first to scientifically document Yoga's ability to heal the body and cure chronic physical ailments. Bikram was asked by Ghosh to start several Yoga schools in India. The schools were so successful, that at Bishnu's request, Bikram traveled to Japan and opened two more. He has since brought his curative methods of Yoga therapy around the world.

The above info was copied from the studios website that I go to.. Read more



DRAY GARDNER
"I enthusiastically welcome you to Bikram Yoga and I look forward to witnessing your struggle, advancement, strength, and ultimate transformation. The divine spirit in me acknowledges and connects with the divine spirit in you. Let no one steal your peace."

Namaste.


This is my instructor. I've known this guy since I was 15 1/2. What an inspiring individual. Even before his yoga! I used to work with him at a restaurant. It was my first job. I was a hostess and he was a server. Dray, ready with his beatbox and smooth with his flows, I always thought of him as one creative human being. His yoga instruction is no different. Although it was hot as HELL in that class (average 107 degrees) his rhythm and flow during that 90 minute class took my mind off the pain and heat. My face throbbed and I did have to stop a few times because it was very overwhelming for me..BUT WELL WORTH IT!

For those with a sensitive nose, it might be hard to get over the smell at first. I will admit that I was blown away, but after I was in the room for a couple minutes, I could smell nothing. The more intimate the class the better. Of course. Who doesn't like attention!? One thing about yoga is: its all about you. Your mind, your body. It doesn't matter what car you drive, what clothes you rockin or even about how fierce you are at a smokey eye.

Ya'll know how I feel on inspiration... Bikram yoga paired with Dray will be a big one for sure!!

Latest buys and fun..



THE BESTIE COMES TO VEGAS!

Lucky me! Joser and RissRoser Reunite! Finally, he comes to Las Vegas... I usually have to go to Palm Springs to see his butt. Anywho, enjoyed a day of shopping at Town Square. If you haven't gone here in Vegas, you must see this outdoor mall. Great for shopping and eats! Yes there is a MAC STORE! ;)

Like my new hat!? It was the first thing I saw. I put it on and didn't take it off till it came time to pay... It makes my head look insanely large, but IDGAF.

Joser wanted the hat too. And I needed him to try on the jacket for size. Mira, model status.. Although I cant stand the cold, I've been growing very fond of the fall clothing.
*Elmer Fudd hat purchased at H&M

Yup, girls night out. The girl to my right, Jen, is the reason we got together. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! We enjoyed dinner at N9Ne Steakhouse at Palms and went upstairs to Ghostbar where we had a table. The crowd there isn't what it used to be. Back in the day when I used to go (9 years ago ;)) it was the hot spot!! Back then, there weren't so many clubs and ultra lounges to choose from. By far one of the best views Vegas has to offer thou! Out on the balcony you have 2 bars and a plexy glass window built into the floor so you can look straight down. Definitely a tourist attraction.

This was taken last week. I had just gotten these Marciano boots!! TO DIE FOR! I had to bust them out before every girl started to wear fall gear. I went for the over the thigh boot this year. I tried on ones that were below my knee cap and I felt like I had fat hanging over! LOL A little dramatic I know, but gave me an excuse to go for bigger and better! Seriously, I didn't want to take these damn boots off the second I put them on! I'm kinda in love with them at the moment.... I actually would like to purchase another pair but in a dark brown. Not the same ones of course, maybe something with a strap? I was actually diggin DulceCandys boots in her last blog... I might go her route.

Peace Love and Lipgloss

Organic Skin Care

Ok so this is my new favorite. This box comes with 30 packages of a pair of wipes. Lasting a whole month if you use everyday, this box cost me 80 buckaroos. At first I was hesitant because that's kinda expensive. But after using over a couple blemishes, they dried up and were pretty much gone sooner than usual. My sun spots and scars had diminished as well. I was advised by my esthetician to use these the week before my chemical peel to help prep my skin... (Chemical peels kinda burn like a "Hot") So now I try and use these every other day to make the box last longer and use everyday the week of my PERIOD. Sorry but I get those really mean and unfriendly PERIOD zits. Don't front, you probably get em too. LOL Since these particular "friends" are from another planet, they are so hard to hide!! It's like they like to be HUGE and sometimes stay under the skin and never come to a head!! With these wipes, I found that if not gone, the "friend" is so much easier to conceal! ON THE REAL!!!!

Im pretty sure you can purchase online, I go to FACELOGICS once a month for a different type of facial and am able to purchase these wipes..

Ok so this cream is amazing as well. I am the type of girl with normal to dry skin. I live in the desert and I cant STAND when my face feels tight! I CANNOT get out of the shower or wash my face without moisturizer on my face afterwards. Since I am a creature of habit, I really only use Studio Moisture Cream from MAC, Lubriderm (My mom used that on me since I was a baby.) and the SPF from Neutrogena.
So buying this moisturizer was tough, but I'm so glad I did so! The ORGANIC part pretty much sold me. Oh yea, and the SMELL of this!! Lexi and Dez always tell me I smell "good and fresh"
*After applying this to my face, I spray some FIX + and rub my face again.
HEAVEN for 35 bucks.

This stuff is for under my eyes and over my sun spots... Mostly the highlights of my face... You can use this all over, but this is just another part of my daily do. I prefer to use this before my moisturizer.. I love SERUMS. they just sound and feel so potent...
I think this thing was 25 bucks on its own. The dispenser is a dropper and only a little is needed for the face. So it goes a long way.

And her she is. MY FACE WASH! I usually like something with "scrubbies" in it. I feel that I'm actually getting deep into my skin and getting the gunk off. Not with this one. Its a soap like consistency and I don't mind at all. I am able to go on smoothly and really massage my skin. I am able to take my time and really massage my face and spend time getting the dirt off.

I'm pretty sure EMINENCE has a website. If my esthetician stopped selling it, I'd be so sad. But you bet your bottom dollar I'd hunt the for the website! Face wash selling for 38 bones.

So Im kinda realizing that this might sound like a lot to purchase at once. I kinda had the "FUUUUCK ME ARE YOU SERIOUS!?" look on my face when I went to pay. But as the days passed, I was so glad I made these purchases. I have never been a big buyer of skin care. Getting older has made me buy less of the make up and make me worry more about my skin...


Think about it..
