The Verdict: I really loved Mile High Glam! It’s the perfect bright bubble gum shade for this summer. It wore really well and, as with most NCLA polishes, I was very impressed with how well the color on my nails matched with the color in the bottle. Seen in the images here are two coats. This is definitely one of my favorite shades for this spring and summer.

Tone It Up Bikini Series – Week Two Recap

Tone It Up Bikini Series – Week Two Recap

I’m now on the second week of the Tone It Up bikini series and still going strong! As I mentioned last week, I wanted to share my recaps here. I know that a lot of Logical Harmony readers are interested in fitness. Plus, it’s also a good way to hold myself accountable. I also do daily check-ins on Instagram for this.

Here’s what I accomplished in the second week of this challenge:

  • Monday – Love Your Body with HIIT (for 2 miles), 3 additional miles of cardio, Best Ab Workout x 1, Stretch & Release x 1
  • Tuesday – Love Your Body with HIIT (for 2 miles), 4 additional miles of cardio, Bikini Booty x 1, Surfers Paradise x 1, Sunrise Stretch
  • Wednesday – Love Your Body with Kettlebells, 3 additional miles of cardio, Surfers Paradise x 3
  • Thursday – 3 miles of cardio
  • Friday – Making Waves Cardio (for 4 miles), Ab playlist one time through (Itty Bitty Bikini x 1, Sleek and Slender Abs x 1, To w Up The Lower Abs x 1, Love Your Abs with Katrina x 1)
  • Saturday – 6 miles of cardio, Beach Yoga with Karena
  • Sunday – Beach Yoga with Karena

This week I added on 27 miles, bringing me to a total of 53 miles towards #150bysummer!! It’s clear that Thursday was a weaker day for me. I had a very long day at the office and when I finally got home for the night, I opted to relax instead of working out. I think that it’s completely fine to take it easy on some days if you really need it. Are you doing the Bikini Series challenge? How is it going for you so far? I’d love to hear about your experiences with the program!

Raspberry Tangerine Kimosa (Kombucha Mimosa) Recipe

Raspberry Tangerine Kimosa (Kombucha Mimosa) Recipe

There are two drinks that I absolutely love – kombucha and mimosas. This recipe combines them into a great drink that makes a great cocktail or mocktail. It’s perfect for weekend brunches (especially with some pancakes to go with it!). I love adding in fun straws and umbrellas to make it feel even more special.

What you will need to make a Raspberry Tangerine Kimosa (Kombucha Mimosa):

  • Tangerine juice
  • Kombucha
  • Fresh or frozen raspberries
  • Champagne (optional)

Raspberry Tangerine Kimosa (Kombucha Mimosa) Recipe

How to make a Raspberry Tangerine Kimosa (Kombucha Mimosa):

  1. Mix equal parts kombucha and tangerine juice. You can use regular orange juice if you like, but I love that tangerine juice is just a little more unique.
  2. Want to make yours a cocktail? Sub out half the kombucha for champagne!
  3. Add in fresh or frozen raspberries. I like to use frozen because it keeps the drink chilled. Want an extra bonus? Muddle a couple fresh raspberries in the bottom of the glass as well.
  4. Enjoy!

If you try this recipe, please let me know. I love getting comments on the recipe posts and please tag me on Instagram or Twitter if you share a picture.

Vegan Cuts April Beauty Box Review

Vegan Cuts April Beauty Box Review

The April Beauty Box from Vegan Cuts had a good variety of items. It included skin care, hair care, nail care, lip gloss, and even a mens skincare item. The Vegan Cuts Beauty Box is a monthly subscription service that delivers 4-7 cruelty free and vegan items directly to your door. It can also be shipped worldwide! It’s a great way to try new brands and new products without the commitment of buying the full-size version.

Included in the April Beauty Box that I received was:

  • GlamNatural Lip Cream – As the name implies, this is a creamy and soft lip color. I like that it applied like a gloss but had the color of a lipstick. I’ve tried other GlamNatural products in the past and have been happy with them (read my review of their hydrating foundation). The shade I received was Poco Loco. I liked that this color was neutral and something everyone could wear. You can buy this lip cream directly from Vegan Cuts.
  • Orico London Rush Hour Vibrant Dry Body Oil – This moisturizing body oil contains rosehip, macadamie and baobab oil to hydrate your skin without leaving it greasy. It has a light natural citrus scent, which is nice and not too strong.
  • Jane Carter Solutions Curl Defining Cream – This was the largest sample in the beauty box. As someone with natural very fine and straight hair, this product doesn’t work for me. But I can see it being a great addition to the hair care routine of many out there. The packaging does not include an ingredients list, so you will need to double check online to see if the ingredients will work for you.
  • Jane Carter Solutions Nourish & Shine – This product does double duty and works for your hair and skin. It’s a blend of different butters – shea butter, kokum butter, illippe butter, and mango butter with essential oils and soy oil. Again, the packaging does not include ingredients so check online to be sure it will work for you.
  • Dazzle Dry Top Coat – I have heard of Dazzle Dry before, but have never tried their items. The biggest claim of this line is that that polishes are quick drying. This quick dry topcoat also offers UV protection to keep your polish from changing color. I always love trying new top coats, so I’m excited to test this one out.
  • Montagne Jeunesse Green Tea Peel Off Face Mask and Dead Sea Mud Face Mask – While either mask can be used for anyone, I did like that one was marked towards men. Mud masks are some of my favorites because they really help to deep clean your pores while moisturizing at the same time. The Peel Off Mask says that it helps to detox your pores, so I am excited to try this one as well.

Vegan Cuts April Beauty Box Review

I love seeing new products and almost all of the items in the April beauty box were items I had never tried before. This is one of the great things about these box services – you get to try lots of new brands and new items.

POPSUGAR Must Have Snacks by NatureBox

POPSUGAR Must Have Snacks by NatureBox

Being busy and on the go a lot means that I’m always looking for snacks to have on hand. While I typically reach for fresh veggies or fruit, it’s nice to have some back-up non-perishable items as well. When POPSUGAR sent me their Must Have Snacks by NatureBox, I was very curious to see what items were included.

Looking at the NatureBox website it appeared that they would have a lot of vegan friendly items. They even label them as such. While not all items available from NatureBox are vegan, all items in the POPSUGAR Must Have Snacks box are vegan! This box contains:

  • Dried California Peaches
  • Seaweed Rice Pops
  • Lemon Pucker Pistachios
  • Blueberry Almond Bites
  • POPSUGAR Must Have Mix

Overall, I was really pleased with this box. It had a variety of items and flavors. For a limited time, you can purchase this box for only $19.95. I can see it being great for people who need quick and easy snacks that are also relatively health. It would also be great to have delivered to your office.
