A work fashion blog offering fashion, lifestyle, and career advice for overachieving chicksI have NEVER been able to do false eyelashes, and taking the time to go get lash extensions is just not in the cards for me from a time/money perspective. (I am also mascara challenged. ) So this is my magnetic lashes review (specifically, One Two Cosmetics Magnetic Lashes ). This is what my prior attempts at false eyelashes were like: I would do my makeup, then try to apply false eyelashes. Perhaps ONE eye would stick, but the other eye wouldn t. I would get glue all over my second eye while I tried to figure how to match the first eye. Thirty minutes later, frustrated and annoyed, I would remove my eye makeup, start over, and go out with regular mascara and no fake eyelashes.Finding differences In pictures games for Girls
My experience with magnetic lashes has been a WORLD apart after playing around with them for about 85 minutes I was consistently getting them on my lashes, and they actually looked good. I m still perfecting my touch, but some notes: In general, I m really happy with my purchase. Readers, have you tried One Two Cosmetics or other magnetic lashes? Care to share a magnetic lashes review with us? I posted a bit late this morning, but need to switch to a new financial institution. A few posters recommended Vanguard or Fidelity. (thank you! ) I have an ira and investments/money. I have Vanguard for both IRA and individual investment accounts it s super easy to manage and to view my accounts independently or combined. Haven t tried direct deposit. I m very pleased with the customer service (and, for what it s worth, have never heard from anyone who s been seriously burned by Vanguard). Second everything said here. I have used direct deposit (in both directions into Vanguard and out of Vanguard / into my bank account), and have had no problems. I have an individual Investment account with Vanguard, and have been very Happy with the service. Fees for mutual funds are low, you can get a rep on the phone if you have questions and I have used direct deposit with now issues. I use Vanguard for investments. It s not the type of institution where I would have a regular checking account, though. My regular checking is at First Republic Bank. They are a private bank with location in areas with high population. I joined because they have cookies but I ve stayed because it s a really incredible bank. I ve also had checking accounts with credit unions and that s a great option too.
This made me laugh, because we re looking to change banks at work, and First Republic sent us cookies, which someone in charge actually mentioned as a reason to go with them (they are also going to cost significantly less than we re paying with our current bank). I told them that they sent over lunch at my last company, so we should hold out! For the OP, I use Fidelity for my investments and I m very happy with it! I d go with that or Vanguard. Thank you for this review! I m like you in the eyelash department and have been wanting to try these. I am with Kat. I could personaly NEVER wear fake lashes, and my own is what men find so allureing. So for the rest of the hive, see if you can get by w/o fake eyelashes, but if you need them, I say go for them b/c men get all bowled over if you can act demurely by stareing at them and batting your eyelashes like Rosa does (and I learned from her after she landed Ed). I wish the hive the best on this score, b/c we should all play up our assets to our own advantage, includeing eyelashes! YAY! ! Halp! My sister s wedding is in 65 days. My dress is sleeveless. I m chubby and my arms are roughly what you d think someone s arms would look like if they never lifted anything ever. I get that I m not suddenly going to have cut defined Michelle Obama arms and I m working to lose my layers of fat, but how do I start lifting? Assume I have no weights, no clue, but access to a gym with machines, and that I just want something easy that doesn t require me reading a book or blogs. Can any of you mysterious fit people provide guidance? I use an adjustable cable trainer at the gym. Hmmm hard to describe. Basically, it s a machine where you can adjust where the cable is coming from up and down (and sometimes in to out) and how much weight you re pulling with the cable.

There is a handle for each arm. I do some where I m pulling in at arm level, some where I m pushing out at arm level, where where I m pulling down and in and the cable starts up high, and some where I m pulling up and in and the cable starts low. You can start with a fairly low weight. The ones where you and rotate in and out look like this: http: //fitnessdealsusa. Com/lt-commercial-ext-dual-cable-cross. HtmlThe one at the gym where I currently work out (while my regular one is closed) looks this and it only adjusts up and down: http: //www. Inboxfitness. Com/xmark-fitness-x-mark-functional-trainer-cable-machine-with-dual-755-lb-weight-stacks. HtmI have had a trainer show me some different things to do with it, but you can look at the instructions on the machine and figure it out. Does your gym have classes? I would start there. If you want to work out privately, I mostly just do youtube videos at home. There are lots of videos out there Pop Sugar, Fitness Blender, Lauren Hefez. You can just search for arm workouts and try them out until you find what you like. Youtube videos or something like kayla itsines / lauren gleisberg / jamie eason middleton s programs. I really like fitnessblender videos on youtube but you can also use some of the free bodybuilding. Com programs that will give you a day by day calendar breakdown of what to do. People I know have had good results with Jamie Eason Middleton s livefit trainer and its available for free on bodybuilding.
Com. The kayla itsines app / lauren gleisberg programs have cost associated with them. Worth noting that eating for fat loss is an integral part of this as it takes (at least on my frame) a pretty lean state to see muscles but your mileage may vary depending on your build (mine is mack truck, hence the need to be at a deficit to get visible guns) but it sounds like you are already working towards this part of things. I know you said no blogs, but here s a really nice overview of how to strength train. Https: //www. Nerdfitness. Com/blog/strength-training-656-where-do-i-start/Ohhhh thank you! I just mean more please tell me exactly which one. I ve tried googling and there s just so much advice out there I find it really intimidating to sift through! A friend of mine has been using the beachbody program (I know, I initially rolled my eyes but she s been on it for about a week and a half and has already seen a difference! ). I m probably going to try it after her rave reviews because I ve been busting my butt for almost 6 months (both exercise and diet) and haven t seen much results. Pushups! If i could only do one set of arm exercises forever, it would be pushups. Plus they re bodyweight. For some simple dumbbell arm routines look up whitney simmons on yo utube. I like her videos, theyre straightforward and you can pick the appropriate weightstry fitness blender. Com videos, like this one: https: //www. Fitnessblender.
(They tend to involve a lot of push ups). So I like using dumbbells. Ok, I hope I don t come off as a troll, and I know this is not what you asked, but as a fellow chubby armed gal, here is my advice: weightlifting is awesome, but won t get you the arms you want in 65 days. You re better off focusing 85% on your diet and losing some weight, and lifting to supplement that improvement. Diet will make a bigger difference here than lifting here (I know, because I ve lifted forever, and you only see definition if you lose the fat otherwise, nada). Co-signing advice above about looking up videos for proper form for weighlifting, youtube has a lot of stuff you can watch and then replicate at the gym. I also LOVE this book for all things weightlifting: The New Rules of Lifting for Women. Good luck and you will look great no matter what! Oh no prob! I totally know that I just figure in addition to diet I may as well try adding some lifting. Not looking for perfection here just nudging a little better. Building on that, I ve found tracking my protein intake and focusing on post-workout protein-timing to be the only way to lose weight while maintaining/building muscle. (Your body isn t terribly discerning about where weight is lost from, if left to its own devices. ) Total protein: 6-6. 7 grams of protein per pound of body weight (some people say to base it off your goal weight, some some present weight) Consume 75gs of protein within 85 mins of a strength training workout. (This allegedly helps prevent your body from consuming energy from your existing muscles. ) Our bodies aren t as efficient at absorbing more than 85gs of proteins at a time. So, I try to consume protein-snacks between meals and have been obsessed with bone broth protein powder lately. So, keep your calories in the weight loss zone, but keep your protein high with a focus on the above rules if you want to reduce the layer of fat on your arms while simultaneously building the muscle tone that will eventually rise to the surface.
I just want something easy that doesn’t require me reading a book or blogs I mean this gently, but, many of us mysterious fit people are mysteriously fit because we 6) read a lot of books and blogs about fitness and 7) put time and energy into thinking about our workouts and how to optimize them in order to achieve the results we want. Reading those books and blogs (as well as trial and error) is how you learn. I encourage you to try the suggestions above, by all means, but you should know that you re going to have to think about it and learn some things if you want to get good results. Yeah, ok, or I could ask a bunch of people who already did that work what their answer is.
