Head-to-Toe....and a finger

I'm pretty sure sharing amazing products is Girl Code 101...So today' I'm doing just that:

My friend Amanda from back home sent me the RE9 Arbonne package which included facial cleanser, toner, eye cream and day and night cream.

I've heard the name Arbonne floating around for awhile but definitely learned a lot from Amanda.
The Coolest thing:
Arbonne is 100% botanically based 
with the botanicals grown in Switzerland. They have over 750 products so if you're looking to go all-natural, they have you covered!

I'm recently loving more natural products and foods so I was very excited to try Arbonne. And I can say, I really liked the quality of these products. Not heavy or tingly feeling on your face and I felt very refreshed and clean-faced after using them. The cleanser and toner get my BIG THUMBS UP!

The package promised things like "supple skin," "renewed skin surface" and "visibly firms and lift".....empty promises? No way - this skin care line convinced me even more why natural is so much better - better for you and better when it comes to results.

If you are sold or want to try out Arbonne, do my girlfriend a favor and enter her member ID when ordering 91841366
And if you simply want more info, email me and I will you in contact with her!

To Toes Feet
It's already been a couple weeks since I've had my Nike Lunar Flys but several of you have asked me "How do you like them?

I'm glad I waited to post this because, had you asked me one week in, I would have cursed the Nike Lunar Flys. My heels got TORE UP ya'll. It looked like World Ware 2 took place on my Achilles.  

But one little box of bandaids and two weeks of breaking in later, and they are DREAMS

The toe box is roomy yet cozy. And the heel base? Perfecto!

So, they may take awhile to break in but, I'd recommend!

....and a Finger

I HAD TO say a special congratulations to my friend Shannon who got engaged this past weekend!! Look at her rock!! Amazing right? So happy for her and Fiance (eeeee!) They are going to make some amazing-looking bambinos one day!

Congrats Shannon!

I recently was given samples of Arbonne to try. I'm not completely sold yet. I like that they're botanically-based, but I don't see that my skin looks any better with it.

More power to you that you can wear Nikes. Nikes are murder on my shins. I just can't do it. However, my Asics? LOVE!

Jenna said...

Congrats to your friend, so exciting!

And thanks for the Arbonne tip, I've never tried them, but am looking for new facial products so may just have to give them a go!


Katie said...

I hate breaking in new shoes!! I always think I made a big mistake and all I want to do it put on my old shoes for the first few weeks!

Sandy a la Mode said...

Jamie said...

Love the shoes!

Kyndi said...

thanks for the shoe tip!

Ashley said...

congrats to your friend!! beautiful ring! :)

so, do you really like the Arbonne products?? i've been looking for some new skin care products. just seems everything i try doesn't work for me. i dispise that feeling. lol.

okay, so everyone is talking about those new nikes! did they really hurt that bad? ouch! i guess like some running shoes you gotta wear 'em out a bit. those shoes are sooo pretty!! love :)

I LOVE Arbonne! My best friends mother sells it, so of course I have just about everything from the makeup to the shampoo. The Re9 products are my favorite!

Brooke said...

Arbonne is my favorite. I love the make up. It's light, and airy but covers. Soooo good.

Ashley said...

I'm so so curious about Arbonne! I have seen it pop up everywhere, but I honestly don't know where to buy it here. I'm sure if I looked harder I could find it. If you could only use one of their products, which would it be?

Love the shoes btw - I was looking at Nike Frees for walking and stuff but I like the look of these too!

L.Voss said...

sorry the giant sparkly diamond must be addressed first! DAMN that is pretty!!!!

Alex said...

I loove the look of those Nikes, but I'm scared about the heel massacre I might encounter!

Shannon said...

Congrats to your friend.

Love the color of your sneaks!!

My latest shoes purchased were for Zumba, so they are pretty dorky looking, but I can Zumba my ass off like a mad woman now!

Ashley Slater said...

I would never last the two weeks of breaking in! I am such a whiner :) hahah glad they are perfect for you now! also, my mom used to use arbonne and loved it but since I started working for clinique she jumped ship and now my whole family uses clinique skincare :)


Tabitha Mahoney said...

I used to sell Arbonne LOVE IT.

I have those shoes too and I had the same problem but once they were worn in they are now FAB!

Love her ring, beautiful.
