Sorry Fitness Friday took a little break last week, but that migraine lasted for an entire week! Ugh.
Anywho, we are back!
This week we are talking ZUMBA! you guys, I have been doing Zumba for over a year now and holy moly do I love it!

Not only do you have SO much fun doing it! {ok maybe you look kind of ridiculous} But seriously its fun! You can burn up to 500 calories or more in ONE work out! 

Uh who wouldn't want to have fun while burning calories!?

I know I know, when I heard it was on the Wii I laughed too. But I bought it anyways, and I kid you not, I get just as good of a work out as at class!!

Summer Must Haves VIA Lauren...the other Lauren that is! :)

Hey there again lovelies! 
Hope your Monday was kick A. Incase it wasn't here is the guest post I was talking about earlier!
The Oh.So.Lovely. Lauren read my mind and wrote up this guest post for me without even knowing I needed one this weekend! ...We decided it's because we have the same name! Anyways, she is awesome and here tonight to let you in on some of her summer must haves! Check out her blog! You will Loooove it!
And I am off to watch some bachelorette and then get to my own bed! You know, sometimes you just really miss your own bed when you aren't in it for a few nights!



Hello lovely readers!
I am Lauren from Pink on the Cheek, or POTC for short. 

I wanted to share some of my favorite makeup must-haves for the summer months!
It's important to find items that are quick and easy to apply and won't sweat off your face. These items below will last you all summer and having you look fresh for any occasion!

 First off:
Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream

This cream is a 5 in 1 secret. 
It is a moisturizer, primer, concealer, foundation, and even has SPF 35. 
This is my go to item on my days off from work when I need some quick cover up.

The next item is a bright lipstick.

I am wearing Electric Pink by Smashbox.
I have good luck with matte lipsticks. When you find a great one like Smashbox, it just glides on easy and just sticks. No smudges, no check ups during the day, you are good to go!

Next is a great lotion.You are going to be wearing shorts and skirts most of the summer.
With shaving your legs constantly, you want to keep them smooth but not have that sweaty feeling.

I am in love with this lotion because it goes on quickly and it not sticky.
You feel moisturized the whole day PLUS  it smells great!

So those are my summer must haves. You shouldn't be doing too much makeup while you are in the sun because the most important thing to wear is sunscreen!
Plus having lots of makeup sweat off your face is not a good look.

I hope you stop by my blog after reading this, I would love to have you!


Long weekend!

Hello my lovelies!! Shoot I miss you guys! I've been away all weekend {it's the long weekend over here in good ol Canada! I did not bring my lap top because I'm silly! So I have been M.I.A! I had a great guest post all lined up for today and am blogging from my phone soooo it won't work! So look forward to that later this week instead! I hope you are all having a wonderful Monday and that your weekend was the best! See you again tomorrow for some photo a day may lovin!! Xoxo

I'm Wishin&Hopin&Thinkin&Dreamin

I WISH to forewarn you that I am straight up grouchy today!

I WISH there was no such thing as migraines that take away your vision and make you nauseous. This rotten thing has just started to let up. Rude.

I WISH I could have a good look into the future and see what my life is like in 5 years or something. Would make decisions a little be easier!

I WISH I had 12 ME's so that I could go in all the directions I feel pulled into and still get everything done! 

I WISH sleep wasn't necessary! Such a waste of time. But yet so lovely and so so so so so so necessary!

I WISH my laundry would do itself. Yes that would be the same laundry I wished to do itself last Wednesday.. you think it would get the message by now!

I WISH you all the best Wednesday ever! 

Now I am headed back to the dark dark room to shove my face in my pillow and wish this headache all the way away. Productive I know!

Link up if you have some wishes you would like to get off your chest!
