Fitbit Review

Is it weird to say I feel naked without my Fitbit? I’ve been actively counting my steps for almost a year now and have become very aware of my daily physical activity.

When I first acquired my Fitbit as a gift last Christmas I never thought it would become part of my daily life. Keep reading to see what I love about my daily fitness accessory!

Tells time: Fitbit has become a popular way to tell time at a flick of a wrist. No need to keep pulling out the cell phone!

Counts steps: I have a set goal of 8,000 steps per day. I know that’s not a lot but I have a desk job (7am -6pm) and I don’t move around as much as I like. Since having the Fitbit I am more aware of my activity throughout the day.

Challenges: If you’re a competitive person then Fitbit is for you! I frequently challenge friends and family through the week or on weekends making both myself and my challenger aware of our daily activity while acting as a coach to keep each other active.

App: I sync my Fitbit to the Fitbit app daily it’s a great way to visually see your progress throughout the week, view milestones and be rewarded by Fitbit for moving and grooving.

What are you waiting for get up and get stepping!

Fall Trips: Nashoba Valley Winery

This past weekend my boyfriend and I took a mini trip 45 minutes north of Boston to Bolton, Massachusetts to Nashoba Valley Winery for some wine tasting and to enjoy the last bit of summer weather.

IMG_1098

Let me first start by saying this place is huge! Not only does Nashoba Valley produce a variety of award-winning wines but a wide selection of spirits and beers. If that’s not enough to keep your busy all day check out their gift shop, restaurant, or enjoy apple picking with over 10 different apples offered throughout their orchard. (I recommend packing a lunch and buying a bottle of wine and enjoying the picnic area which is situated on a hilltop overlooking Bolton.)

With the exception July 4th, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day Nashoba Valley is open every day for tastings; with tours offered to the public on Saturdays and Sundays. (No reservation required for either, however, I recommend going early as the winery fills up fast!)

Guest can sample either 5 or 10 wines or 5 wines and a full glass. We decided on sampling 10 of their 20+ wines. After tasting 10 wines from their extensive wine list here are the ones I highly recommend buying a bottle or two:

  1. Cranberry Apple
  2. Riesling
  3. Dry Pear

If wine’s not your thing Nashoba Vally brews a variety of handcrafted ciders,  flagship, fusion and seasonal beers (pumpkin lovers, no worries they got you covered too).

Nashoba Valley also offers a wonderful selection of distilled spirits. Combining their award-winning artistry of fermentation with years of experience in distillation, Nashoba Valley produces and sells some of the finest brandies and vodka (distilled from 100% apples).

Looking for the perfect fall activity? I highly recommend heading over to Nashoba Valley for a delectable brunch at their restaurant, apple picking, and wine tasting!

So, some people may ask, “with makeup consuming most of my life what are my favorites?” Keep reading to find out!

Explore Newport Cliff Walk

A short drive from Boston you’ll find Newport, Rhode Island, a quaint beach town filled with ice cream shops, fish joints, little buggy car rentals and the well-known Newport Cliff Walk. The Cliff Walk has been on my bucket list for awhile so I figured let’s take a mini road trip to cross it off the list!

The Newport Cliff Walk is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Rhode Island and is a combination of stunning ocean views and beautiful mansions. The 3.5-mile walk is the perfect getaway young couples looking for a relaxing afternoon from the city! I would advise everyone to wear toe-closed shoes as the trail is very rocky at points and can be challenging to keep your balance if not wearing appropriate shoes. (Also, bring a camera to snap some likable Instagram pics!)

Interested in doing a mansion tour? You can tour several homes including The Breakers, The Elms, Marble House, Rosecliff, Rough Point and more. Tickets can be purchased at the door or here!

 Check out some photos from our adventure below!

Favorite Skincare Products

We all want beautiful, young skin. I totally get it! I’ve been there, I’ve used that overnight mask from the drug store and all the Clean and Clear products in the book and was still left with poor results and skin looking worse than before.

When it comes to my skincare routine I take the process very seriously. Over the years I’ve found products I love and ones I hate. Now, I have oily skin, so if we’re on the same boat keep reading for some of my favorite skincare brands and products that get the job done and will leave you feeling refreshed and confident!

Clinique (Acne Solutions): I’ve been using Clinique Acne Solution the longest. As a teen- ager I struggled with acne and as an adult living a busy lifestyle I still struggle with acne from time to time. When I have those days where I’m like, “whoa I look 16” I take the time to wash with Clinique Acne Solution. After using Clinique twice a day for two consistent days the acne usually is reduced leaving me feeling confident and acne free! (Really struggling with acne? Try the full Clinique Acne Solution Kit) Clinique is also a great option for makeup and other face washes.  – $20 at Sephora

Sephora Coconut Water Cleansing Wipes: Taking off your makeup at the end of the day is incredibly important if you want to keep your skin healthy and happy. What’s great about the Sephora brand cleansing wipes is it doesn’t leave your skin feeling oily after. You can simply wipe off all your makeup and don’t feel as though you have to wash your face again like you do with other cleansing wipe products. I highly recommend picking up a pack or two. – $7.50 at Sephora 

Origins (Clear Improvements): I love the Origins skin care line! The brand has everything from makeup to body wash to masks to cleansers to scrubs and anti-aging lotions. Origins has a solution to fight any of your toughest skin problems from acne, dry skin, oily skin, wrinkles, redness and more. I’ll let you in on a secret…Origins can truly fix anything. Not sold? Give it a try! – $17 at Sephora 

First Aid Beauty (Face Cleanser)I know I said I love all these products, but I love this product! I use it every night in the shower to take off all the grease, grime, and makeup from the day making me feel clean and refreshed. First Aid Beauty’s Face Cleanser is great for any skin type and leaves skin feeling soft. ***HIGHLY RECCOMEND*** – $20 at Sephora
