College Evening Pamper Routine

It’s mid-term season! It’s flu season! It’s s t r e s s season! It is getting to the craziest time of the year, the temperature is going down, work and tests are piling up and everyone is getting sick. Today’s post is going to be my college evening pamper routine to give you a little self-love time in the midst of all the chaos. I’ve also thrown in a few things to help boost your immune system to try and avoid all of those nasty sicknesses going around. This can be done by yourself for some me-time, or with your friend(s) for a fun girls night in! **I’ll try and leave as many links below!**

I always start by throwing up a plush robe (or some comfy clothes) and take my makeup off. I’ve been loving the Sephora Charcoal Micellar Water for my makeup. Then I’ll begin to set the mood in my room. I’ll throw on my fairy lights and lanterns and I’ll let my diffuser start running. I’ve been using the Iextreme Essential Oil Diffuser that I got on Amazon for only $10, and it’s amazing. It has 8 different LED colors to choose from, which is actually my favorite thing ever. At night, my favorite oils to diffuse are the Young Living Lavender and Orange essential oils.

After my room is looking and smelling good, I’ll go and take a long hot shower (I MISS MY BATH TUB!). I’ll usually do the full thing, hair mask, shave… on these kind of nights. To wash my hair, I’ve been loving the Herbal Essence Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner, it leaves your hair super soft and smooth and smells incredible. I’ll then go in with the Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask. I got this in my FabFitFun box and have been obsessed with it ever since. While I let that sit for 15 minutes, I use the Eos Ultra Moisture shaving cream in pomegranate-raspberry to shave my legs and get them all nice and smooth. For my face, I’ve been loving the Grown Alchemist Polishing Facial Exfoliant with pink grapefruit. I also got this in my last FabFitFun box and I cannot begin to express how much I love this. The smell immediately transports me to a spa and the fine beads exfoliate your face so gently while still getting all the gunk off. It’s AMAZING!

Once I’m all done in there, I’ll get back into my robe and put my hair up in a hair wrap to get it out of the way. My next step is to do a face mask. If I’m really feeling it, I’ll go to to the extreme and do two masks, one clay and one hydrating. My two favorite clay masks are the Indian Healing Clay and the CVS Dead Sea Mineral Anti-Stress mask. Both of these do a really good job of extracting all the gross gunk from your skin and pores without over-drying your skin (they both do leave your skin red for a few minutes, and that’s just because of the increased blood flow to your face). My favorite hydrating mask right now is either the Smoothing Radiance Mask from Filorga or the sheet masks from Innis Free. While I have my face masks on, I’ll cuddle up in bed and put on something super fun and easy to watch on Netflix. I’ve been loving The Good Place and The Great British Bake Off recently, they’re both so good but also ADDICTIVE.

When I’m doing a full pamper night, I try to make sure I’m not just taking care of my outside, but also taking care of my insides. I love lemon water all the time, but it makes me feel super refreshed and cleansed during a night like this. Lemon is a detoxifying and digestive agent and can help to increase your metabolic rate. I also try to eat super clean, so I’ll do a lot of apples, carrots, or celery with peanut butter or a light salad, and then maybe some dark chocolate or strawberries if I’m craving something sweet. Another healthy snack I’ve been obsessed with is the Coconut Sesame Clusters from Trader Joe’s, they’re so addictive it’s crazy.

After I’m all done with my face masks I’ll start my evening skincare routine. I use the Celavive Perfecting Toner all over my face with a cotton ball to start, then I go in with the Clinque Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion and either the Tarte Maracuja Oil or the Tarte Drink of H2O Hydrating Boost Moisturizer on top of that. My holy grail products for any zits or breakouts it Lavender Oil. I put a tiny bit on right before I go to sleep and the next morning it’s like nothing was there, seriously, it’s that amazing.

Another thing I like to do before going to sleep on a pamper night is to get my stuff ready for the next morning. I just spend a few minutes going through my planner (this year I’m using the Kate Spade Things We Love Planner and it’s my favorite thing ever) and checking off everything I’ve done that day and also getting all my stuff ready for my first class the next day. It puts me at ease knowing that I can just wake up in the morning and everything will be ready to go. The last thing I do before going to bed is to use an app to do a quick meditation. I’ve been juggling between Head Space, Calm, Simple Habit and Insight Timer, but honestly haven’t found my favorite yet, but I do like spending just 5-10 minutes to wind my mind down, and I have found that I tend to sleep so much better on nights when I spend time doing this.

And then it’s lights out and time to SLEEP!

Tarte Review- NEW PRODUCTS!

Happy Tuesday lovelies, hope you’ve had a great weekend and are ready for a fab week ahead! Today’s post is going to be all about new (some new to Tarte, some new to me) Tarte products! As most of you already known I’ve been Tarte-obsessed for years now and I think my obsession has gone to a whole new level over the past 6 months. I’ve tried a lot of new products recently and am so excited to share my favorite ones with you. They have also just come out with their new Tarte in Paradise collection which I am already in love with and can’t wait to try more of. Enjoy and I’ll leave as many links (and photos) as I can below!

**Addition: On the day I’m posting this they just released even more new products so PLEASE go check those out, they are the epitome of adorable!!**

New to me:

Rainforest of the Sea Volume III Eyeshadow Palette– The second this came out I new I had to get it. It was all the shades I love and the packaging was the most adorable thing I’d ever seen. It has 7 glitter shades and one transitional matte shade so you can do a lot of looks with it. It’s all neutral/gold colors so perfect for a casual or everyday look. I love this palette.

Rainforest of the Sea 4-in-1 Setting Mist– I have tried so many different setting sprays and mists and couldn’t find one I loved until I tried this. I seriously wish I tried it sooner. It is so refreshing on your face and has a gorgeous subtle scent that I love. The spray nozzle is really good and sprays a fine mist, which I haven’t found in many other sprays. It helps your makeup last so much longer and also works as a little booster in the middle of the day. It’s my new best friends.

Drink of H2O Hydrating Boost– This is another product that I wish I had in my routine a lot earlier. It smells amazing and has a lovely gel-like cooling texture. It’s also one of the most hydrating products I’ve ever used, and a tiny bit goes a long way. I use this every night before I go to bed and it has made my skin SO much healthier looking.

Color Splash Lipstick in Island Life– I was so excited to try this lipstick out and it surpassed my high expectations. The packaging was what caught my eye at first, but the formula is so amazing and hydrating on my lips (I hate lip products that are super drying). And this shade is so beautiful I’ve been wearing it everyday.

Park Ave Princess Amazonian Clay Waterproof Bronzer– I was so jealous watching all the YouTubers try out the Park Ave Princess collection, and I finally got this bronzer a few weeks ago! It is seriously incredible. My favorite bronzer for the last 2 years has been the one in the Pro Glow palette and I have to say I love this one just as much. It has a sparkle in it that doesn’t make it to blinding but adds a nice glow to your skin. It’s one stunner of a bronzer!

Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Fanciful– I love the Amazonian Clay Blushes (I have it in about four other shades), but this one is by far my favorite. The packaging makes it look a little darker than it it, but it works so well on tan/dark skin. It leaves a nice little rosy color on your skin but doesn’t overpower. And it goes on so smoothly and is easy to blend out.

Maracuja Oil– Okay, I don’t even know where to start with this one. I’ve heard the most incredible things about this products but have always been so nervous to try it because I have oily skin. But let me tell you, this is a saving grace for your face. I know I’ve talked about this in a lot of previous posts so I’ll try not to ramble on, but if you try one thing from this post please please please try this! You will fall in love, it’s worth every penny.

Better Bod Bronze and Contour– I got a little bronzer set from Tarte not knowing what I was going to think, but I love this product! It goes on so easy and leaves you with a little sun-kissed glow even if you’ve been copped up inside for weeks studying. Game changer!

 

New to Tarte:

Tarte Fragrance in Sweet Tarte– This fragrance is so sophisticated but sweet and flirty at the same time, I’m loving it. I use it everyday on my wrists before I go to class and find myself just casually smelling it throughout the day.

Glide and Go Buttery Lipstick in Pink Palm– Not only is the packaging on this the cutest (gold with palm trees), the color is stunning and the formula is just as the name says, buttery af!

Maneater Mascara– I tried this for the first time a few days ago and I was sitting across the room from one of my friends and she goes “OMG Aime I don’t even have my glasses on and I can see your eyelashes all the way from here”. I think that pretty much sums up how I feel about this mascara, OBSESSED.

Glam on the Go Eyeshadow Palette– This palette is by far the cutest packaging I’ve seen from Tarte. It has a cute holographic picture of flamingos on the front and I am living for it. I’m not sure if they’ve used a new formula for these shadows or not, but they are incredible. The pigment is so strong and the glitter sticks to your lids perfectly without ANY fallout. The Leave Your Mark palette has been my go-to for my everyday look, but I think this palette has overtaken it.

10 Things You Don’t Know About Me

Happy labor day weekend! I hope you all are enjoying this last long weekend of the summer. For today’s post, I thought it would be fun to do a “10 things you don’t know about me” post. I’ve been reading a lot of others posts like this and it’s been so fun to learn little things about other bloggers that they wouldn’t normally talk about. I hope you like it and enjoy the rest of your weekend! xx

1. I always have to have my nails done. 

I don’t know why this is, but I don’t think I’ve gone more than half a day without my nails and toes painted in the last 10 years. I have this weird naked feeling when their not done and always feel so much better and put together when their freshly painted. My favorite colors are bright pinks and yellows, anything pastel and white (and obviously anything glittery).

2. Country music is basically all I listen to. 

This really surprises a lot of people, but I am OBSESSED with country music. I have absolutely no idea how it started, but for the past 6 years it’s been pretty much all I listen to. I love more modern artists like Luke Bryan, Thomas Rhett, Dierks Bentley, Blake Shelton, etc. but I also love more classic country singers like George Strait, George Jones and Loretta Lynn.

3. I’m obsessed with anything coconut. 

If something smells or tastes like coconut, you can be sure that I will love it. Coconuts just always remind me of being on vacation at the beach somewhere and that makes me SO happy. So whether I’m drinking fresh coconut juice, eating coconut cookies or using coconut oil in my hair, I’m always in a happy place. Sidenote: I always use coconut shampoo and conditioner and my favorite is the hydrating one from Herbal Essence.

4. I’ve never broken a bone… but have had some stupid injuries. 

I can be super clumsy sometimes, so I don’t know how I’ve never broken a bone but I’ve had my fair share of stupid injuries. I’ve split my shin open twice in the exact same place while doing box jumps, I’ve dropped a 120 pound bar on my face after slipping off a step box and I’ve sprained and fractured my thumb after hitting it on the lane line while swimming butterfly at practice.

5. Horror/thriller movies TERRIFY me. 

I’ve never really liked watches mystery shows, or even drama shows/movies, but I absolutely cannot handle horror or thriller movies. I don’t care what time of day it is or who I’m with, I will refuse to. I just get scared way too easily and don’t understand the point of voluntarily scaring yourself. But that’s just me, haha:)

6. The Bachelor/Bachelorette/Bachelor in Paradise are my guilty pleasures. 

I always thought the Bachelor franchise shows were so stupid, but the second I started I was hooked. The first season I watched was Ben Higgin’s season and it’s my favorite thing to exist on this earth. I didn’t think I was going to turn into a reality TV junkie, but sorry I have! It’s honestly just so funny and romantic and the best way to chill after a long day or week at school. I also rewatch episodes all the time, and I never get bored.

7. My dream is to own a VW Bus/Van one day. 

I’m not sure how my obsession with VW buses started, but I am making it my life mission to own one some day. I have pictures of them and little statues of them all over my room, I have shirts with them on it and every time my friends or family see one they always send me a video or a photo. I just think they’re so cute and funky, I just really want one.

8. I would choose the beach over mountains any day.

This might be pretty obvious from my Instagram, but I’m putting it in here anyway. I love being outdoors and doing anything active, but if it came down to the mountains or the beach, I would always always always pick the beach. There’s honestly nothing I love more than lying on the sand and looking out deep into the beautiful blue ocean. It’s by far the most relaxed I could ever be (unless I’m in a spa overlooking the ocean, because I’m good with that too).

9. I’ve watched either Friends or Full House every single night for the past 8 years. 

Every single night since sixth grade, I’ve watched a little bit of either Friends or Full House to fall asleep. I am not much of a reader, but I do love watching YouTube or Netflix every night. Most nights I do watch some other things, but when I’m ready to go to sleep I’ll put on Friends or Full House. I usually only end up watching a few minutes of it but it puts me in such a good mood going to sleep. I honestly think I sleep so well and wake up in a good mood (usually!!) because I go to sleep happy. It might sound weird but it works for me!

10. I don’t really have eyebrows, I draw them in. 

This is one of the things I tell people as an icebreaker because it’s so ridiculous, but 4 years ago my eyebrows completely burnt off because the pool I was training in was so heavily chlorinated. And when I say burnt off I mean like GONE. They eventually started to grow back a tiny bit, but I have to draw them in everyday so I don’t look ridiculous. Maybe one day if I feel like it I’ll share a picture with ya’ll, but you’ll have to wait for that:) Also, my favorite products to help with my lack of eyebrow situation is the Drawing Eyebrow Pencil from Etude House and the 3D Browtones from Benefit.

 

In-Flight Essentials

Here I am, once again, getting ready for another trip. This one is a little different since my family is leaving Singapore after over two decades to start a new adventure in Tokyo. As I’ve been preparing for this trip, I’ve been trying to think of what I want to have with me to make the trip as comfortable as possible. Usually I love flying, but this time I’m prepared to be overwhelmed with emotion as we are saying goodbye to the only home my sister and I have ever known. With that, I decided to put together a little “must-haves” for the flight. These are some of the things that make me feel safe and luxurious on a flight. I’ve done a lot of other travel posts before, so be sure to check those out by typing “travel” in the search bar. Hope you enjoy this post and comment some of your favorite in-flight essentials down below!

1. Phone Charger- Starting off pretty basic, but I always carry around a phone charger with me. Whether I plug it in while waiting to board my flight or charge my phone while actually on the plane, having a fully charged phone always makes me feel more comfortable knowing that I can reach somebody at any time. And plus, with all that free time there is lots of game playing, social media scrolling and other things that are eating up all your battery.

2. Water- I always have a water bottle with me on the plane whether it’s a plastic one or one that I’ve brought with me. When you fly, you get extremely dehydrated so it’s very important to drink more water than normal. Don’t be afraid to ask the airline staff to fill it up for you or to bring you some water. I always say I’d rather have to go to the bathroom multiple times during a flight than get off the plane with a massive headache.

3. Face Masks- Along with your body getting dehydrated on flights, so does your skin. The cabin re-circulates oxygen through the air making your skin breakout prone. One way to avoid walking off the plane with a new friend on your face is to use the time on the flight to do a face mask. I know it may sound crazy to be sitting there with stuff all over your face, but your skin will thank you at the end of the long journey.

4. Lavender Oil- This is actually something I always carry with me, but especially so on the plane. My mom got into essential oils a while back and I’ve finally caught on as well. I’ve been constantly amazed at the power of Lavender. It does everything from prevent bruising to stopping a bad bleed or even clearing up a zit. I also like to add a drop or too to my moisturizer if I need a little extra hydration. This is one thing I always find myself reaching for when I’m on a flight and I’m always glad that I have it.

5. iPad & Netflix- I think that downloads on Netflix is arguably one of the best things to ever happen. I have always carried around my iPad while I’m traveling so that I could watch a movie I’d purchased or read a book, but now I always download as many TV shows and movies as I can before getting on a flight. I love watching documentaries comedies on flights because they’re light, funny and entertaining, as opposed to watching a thriller or a horror (I could never do that). Some of my favorites for a plane ride are Mean Girls, Bridesmaids, CrossFit Games documentaries Full (and Fuller) House, Friends, and Queer Eye.

5. Wet Wipes- This is something I’ve more recently started doing, but I always have wet wipes when I travel so that I can wipe down my seat, the TV screen, the remote, the tray table and the arm rests. I can’t believe I haven’t always done this, but if you really stop and think about all the people who’ve touched those things and the germs that are on there, it’s pretty gross. So I always make sure to wipe things down the second I get to my seat. And with me being a bit of a klutz, I always find myself in need of a wet wipe.

6. Neck Pillow & Eye Mask- My parents got me a neck pillow and eye mask set from Victoria’s Secret about 5 years ago and I’ve had it with me on almost every flight since. I always find that using a neck pillow is a lot more comfortable than leaning your head all the way back on the seat or leaning it to the side. You don’t want to wake up after sleeping on a flight without being able to move your neck. As for the eye mask, it’s the best thing ever. You don’t have control over the lighting on the plane, so it does wonders when you want to take a quick nap while all the lights are still on.

7. Toothbrush and Mouthwash- I always always always have to have a toothbrush and mouthwash (and tons of gum) with me on flights, especially if it’s a longer flight or one with a layover. First of all, I’m super big on oral hygiene, and I always feel like having that minty flavor in your mouth just helps me feel a lot more fresh and put together overall. And if you’re on an overnight flight you still need to stick to your routine and brush your teeth and do all that jazz before dozing off.

8. Makeup Basics- I’m not one to wear a full face of makeup on a flight (or any at all), but I do love having a little bit of the basics to smack on right before I get off the flight. It helps me feel alive and human after being a zombie on a flight. And if I have friends or family picking me up at the airport, I feel like having a little bit of makeup on makes me look more presentable and like I made an effort for them. The basics I like to keep with me are eyebrow products, concealer, mascara and a tinted lip balm.

9. Dry Shampoo- One of my biggest pet peeves when it comes to beauty is oily hair, I absolutely cannot stand it. And for some reason every time I get on a flight, whether it’s short or long, I always walk off with oily roots. So to combat that I always carry around a mini sized Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak dry shampoo just to spritz in my hair right before getting off the plane. I love it and the smell is also amazing.

10. Snacks!!- If there’s one thing I will always have with me no matter what, it’s a ton of snacks. After getting sick from airplane food five years ago, I’ve had a really bad aversion to it and almost never eat it. So I have to make sure I’m stocked with snacks of all kinds to keep me going. I love having healthy snacks with me like pretzels and hummus, dried fruit, protein bars, and trail mix, but I also let myself splurge a little bit when I’m on the flight with a bag of chips or some chocolate or candy, just to feel like I’m treating myself a little bit.

I hope you all enjoyed this post and found it helpful. Happy traveling!!

Phuket Travel Diary

Living in Singapore, long weekends would typically consist of a quick trip to paradise, Phuket. Going about once a year for a while, it’s become one of our home away from homes. After our last trip, I decided it was finally time to sit down and share all the things I love about Phuket with all of you. I will leave all the links down below and hope you venture out to this little gem of an island in South East Asia!

Hotel:

After staying at a bunch of different hotels and resorts, we finally found our favorite and go-to place to stay: Le Meridien Phuket Beach Resort. While it is about an hour drive from the airport, the resort sits only ten minutes away from the downtown area (Patong and Karon) making it super easy to get around. The resort is sprawled out over a huge piece of property with it’s own private beach, tennis courts, an amazing spa, two tropical pool, multiple eateries/bars and stunning, comfortable rooms. While the rooms may be a little older than others, they’ve been kept really well and feel modern with a vintage twist. The private beach is only a few steps away from the pool area and are lined with lounge chairs and bean bags, while crystal blue water and really clean sand. They offer a range of water activities from jet skiing to kayaking and surfing. In the middle of the day when you’re looking for a quick bite, you can just head over to Ton Son out by the pool to order anything from Thai to Italian and American. You can also head over there for before-dinner drinks where they offer classic cocktails as well as tropical/Thai cocktails. One of my favorite things at the hotel was the energizing shots they had at breakfast. Every morning they had a couple different kinds to really get your body working and wake you up. My favorite was the watermelon-chili shot which was just to die for. And what’s a trip to the beach without some relaxing time at the spa? Le Spa offers different treatments from massages to scrubs and facials, all beach and tropical themed. Our time at Le Meridien is always made even better by the super friendly and helpful staff. We absolutely LOVE staying at Le Meridien and cannot wait to spend more nights there.

Food:

Like I mentioned above, the food at the hotel is not like any others. It’s very different and authentic, but still really good. However, I love spending time around Patong and Karon exploring other places to have meals. One of our all time favorites is Eat. Bar & Grill in Karon. Priding themselves on incredible service and hearty, rustic food, the little bar/restaurant serves burgers, steaks and other unique dishes. After going there four times over our past two trips, I’ve had some of my favorite dishes there. Some that I would recommend are the burger and fries, the chateaubriand (steak), the beef tartare, the lobster cappuccino, and most importantly the mojito bucket (5 servings of a mojito in one big bucket, photo below). This year we also went to Baan Rim Pa, which is one of the only “fine dining” restaurants in Phuket serving authentic Thai food. We had the chicken and crab Thai dumplings, grilled eggplant salad, minced pork with noodle crackers, green curry with chicken and stir-fried morning glory, and a really good passion fruit mojito. The food was all really good and some of the best Thai food I’d ever had (and I’ve had a lot of Thai food). Other than those two places, we also love going to different seafood restaurants along the water front and trying different dishes. As most of you know, my family LOVES food and one reason we love going back to Phuket so often is because of the huge variety of amazing restaurants to chose from.

Getting Around:

While you can have your hotel arrange a car/transport for you, one way I love to get around is by taking a tuk-tuk. A tuk-tuk is motorcycle powered vehicle with seating for passengers attached to it. They’re commonly found around South East Asia and are open air. I love driving back to our hotel at night after dinner with the wind blowing through my hair and the sound of the waves crashing on the shore in the background. Depending on where you flag one down, a 10-15 minute drive can be anywhere from 10-12 SGD, which may seem a bit pricy but is normally much less than having your hotel arrange transport for you. If you are around Patong or Kata beach, it’s really easy to walk around. Whether you’re beach hopping or looking around the market, I always say that walking around is one of the best ways to explore a new destination. And the excitement of Phuket nightlife makes the evening a lot more fun and interesting.

What I Wore:

When I go to the beach, my absolute must-have is a ton of bikinis. I love mixing solids with solids and solids with prints from different brands. Some of my favorites for bikinis are Cotton On, Victoria’s Secret (now Pink), She In and Hollister (and Jolyn for suits that won’t budge). I don’t like wearing the same suit more than once a trip (I know, I’m a snob), so I love having variety in my suitcase. In addition to suits, I wear all different kinds of cover-ups and summery rompers and dresses that work at both the beach and a casual meal out. For sunglasses, I personally don’t love wearing nice/high-end glasses at the beach because I love spending time in the water and body surfing waves so I’m always paranoid that I’m going to lose a nice pair. I typically have a couple cheap pairs of Cotton On sunglasses that are perfect for the setting and look bomb in all those insta photos. For a more in-depth look, check out my summer beauty post (linked below)!

I always love a good beach getaway, and Phuket is the perfect destination for a stress-free and relaxing weekend away. Have you been to Phuket? If so, what’s your favorite thing to do there? If you haven’t what’s your favorite beach getaway destination? Comment down below!

I hope you all enjoyed this post, and I will talk to you soon!

Live Life Colorfully- Kate Spade Lookbook

With the sad news of Kate Spade coming out, people have been sharing the stories of their “firsts”. Their first Kate Spade wallet, their first Kate Spade purchase that marked the transition from adolescence to adulthood. My very first Kate Spade present was a white and orange wallet. It was bright and shiny, the way all of her designs were. 3 years ago, I made my own first big purchase; a beige and pastel yellow Kate Spade handbag. For years, Kate Spade has brought me true joy through her colorful and lively designs. I will be forever grateful for all of the memories she has allowed me to create and for allowing me to express myself through fashion and beauty. In honor of her beautiful life, I have put together a few of my favorite KS pieces.

My Newest Adventure- The Beach Bum Lifestyle Program

For those of you who follow me on Instagram (@swimeatlove), I announced a couple of weeks ago that I had joined the Beach Bum Lifestyle Program team as their newest ambassador. After discovering their Instagram account and website, I immediately fell in love. I was amazed at how similar their goals and passions are to mine. The BB Program isn’t a crash course on dieting or a 10 day fix to get your ideal body, but it truly is a community of amazing, inspiring ladies who are all striving to become the best versions of themselves they can possible be.

The Beach Bum Mission:

“You’ve tried every cleanse, fitness, and nutrition program out there and have come up short in being able to maintain your results. Look no further babe, we’ve got you covered! We’re here to provide you with the tools you need to feel and look your best for life! Re-energize, get fit, show yourself so much love, and stay accountable… in a way that feels easy, and oh-so-good!
This program encompasses the nutrition, beauty, friendship, inspiration, joy, and all of the things that give you an unmistakable glow!”

Looking to take what I do to the next level, I thought that joining the team would be the perfect next step. With my goal to inspire and motivate as many people as possible to live a happier and healthier life, I felt that Beach Bum gave me the perfect platform to connect with so many more amazing people. As time goes on, I hope working with Beach Bum gives me the platform to reach out and connect with so many different people.

One of the cool parts about this program is their partnership with Usana. Usana makes everything from shakes and supplements, to an amazing skincare line (Celavie). I’ve started on the Beach Bum Kit, consisting of cellsentials (supplements) and their Nutrimeal shakes, along with the Celavie skincare products. I have loved everything about using the products and the way it makes me feel. It’s a great way to supplement the life I am living.
