More Thankfulness and put your best nail forward

Continuing with my week of Thankfulness, today I am so thankful for my job. I have a wonderful, fulfilling job that allows me to work from home, spend more time with my family and that I love! I work as a fitness coach for Team Beachbody. I get to help other people find fun ways to get healthy and lose weight. In the process, I get to be in the best shape of my life! I feel better, look better and even sleep better all thanks to my job! Nothing better than that and I get paid to do it! If this is something that sounds good to you, please feel free to email me about it! I highly recommend it :) You can also check out my webpage for more info and to get a free membership to Team Beachbody and I will coach you to better health! http://www.missourifitclub.com/ These pictures are from when I got to meet the some of the trainers with Beachbody. I work out with these people daily. It was such a thrill to meet them in person! Shaun T, Chalene Johnson, Tony Horton and Debbie Seibers!

I love to give myself a mani/pedi and I know that I have told you all about my Spa Saturdays that I do once a month. Pampering is just so fun! Of course, it is more fun when you have someone to do it for you, but in these times, we are all looking for ways to cut back.

I recently got great girly goodies from Ms. Manicure. These are great tools for pampering your hands and feet. The Handy Dandy Mani, Rock N Sole and Call your Buff are all great items and would be wonderful stocking stuffers now that Christmas is just around the corner! You can pick these up at Kohls, Target, Wal-Mart or K-Mart.

The wonderful people at Paris Presents sent me this list of other things to use your kit for:

We’ve all been guilty of having a major beauty blunder at least once or twice in our lives. We leave the house with too much blush on, deodorant stains on our black t-shirts, fake eyelashes dangling from our perfectly made-up faces – the list goes on and on. Forgo common disasters and refine your inner recessionista by thinking outside the box with your beauty products. Let Ms. Manicure give you a lesson in how to fix fashion fiascos with these multi-functional nail products.

Knit-Pick Your Sweaters

Don’t worry about hand washing your favorite sweaters anymore. Solve your pilling problems with Ms. Pedicure’s Rock ‘n Sole ($1.99). By rubbing this dry pumice stone over sweaters, the little fuzzies that cause so much distress will be gone. Make sure to lay the clothing on a flat surface before gently stroking the fabric with the stone. Keep the stone clean and dry for future use!

Loose Lashes

Scared your eyelashes might fall off into your dinner plate a la the last date you went on? Give them extra security by applying them with the tweezers from Ms. Manicure‘s Handy Dandy Mani kit ($9.99). First, let lash glue sit for 30 to 60 seconds prior to using. Then, pick up individual lashes with tweezers, dip the ends in glue and securely apply them to the base of the eyelid. Make sure to coat them with mascara afterwards for extra protection!

Save Suede

Spill something on your new suede boots? You might not have to head for the shoe store for another pair just yet. Grab an emery board, like Ms. Manicure ‘s Call Your Buff ($2.99), and lightly rub the stain. Use the soft, buffer side of this four-sided board to ensure that your boots don’t get damaged in the process. Then, hold the shoe over steam from a boiling pot (or teakettle) on the stove to completely remove it. This works for suede clothing as well!
