A sudden chill to the morning air. A few leaves falling from the trees. The enticing call of a cup of tea or hot bath. Yes, fall is right around the corner. And with the change of the seasons typically comes back to school and back to work rituals, including for many people, a focus on fall fitness. Which is what has inspired this month's post. I love to workout, and I especially love free workouts. So that's why I'm sharing some of my favorite YouTube workouts.
Blogilates Extreme Abs 3
Doing this without any weights is hard enough, but add some 5 lb ankle weights and then try this workout and I promise you will die (in a good way). Casey Ho's upbeat personality and chatty nature will at least help you forgot some of the pain. There's also Extreme Abs 1 and Extreme Abs 2 if you just want to keep going with it.
Action Jacquelyn Love Yourself HIIT
Jacquelyn Umof has a lot of video offerings to choose from, but this is one of my favorites. It's 20 minutes of HIIT (high intensity interval training) and it will get your heart rate pumping. Not too many bells and whistles here, but you're in, you're out, you're done.
Tone It Up Total Body Mermaid Toning
I love working out with Karena and Katrina of Tone It Up. They are always fun, energetic, and upbeat. One of my favorite workouts of theirs is this fun and effective mermaid-inspired toning routine.
Last year I published a post on unicorn beauty, because it was the perfect mix of one of my favorite magical creatures and some pretty cool beauty products. Fast forward to the present, and this month I'm hearing the siren song of another favorite mystical creature, the iconic mermaid. Who, just like unicorns, is having a major pop culture moment. Which is totally fine by me, because it means there's some pretty fun mermaid inspired products to select from. Here's a round up of some of my favorite mermaid inspired beauty products.
Tarte Mer-Mist Shimmer Spray
INC.redible In A Dream World Iridescent Sheer Gloss
The cutely titled, Mermaid on Land, is a glittering green lip gloss. Looks great alone or topped over lipstick. Not quite ready for green on the lips? They have some pretty awesome "mainstream" color options as well.
Too Faced La Creme Mystical Lipstick
Too Faced's La Creme Mystical Lipstick really is magical because it actually changes colors with your body chemistry. There are also unicorn, angel, and fairy colors to round out your fantasy creature options.
