Chanel Channeling My Mind!

I have always had a little thing for Chanel makeup. Something about it just makes me happy (well, besides how much it costs!). But, the Chanel Spring 2010 line definitely has me excited! The lipsticks look so smooth and creamy, the face powder packaging and "print" is to die for, and why am I suddenly compelled to purchase nail polish from a department store?

When makeup lines, such as Chanel, come out with new collections only once every 4-6 months.. it is just THAT much more exciting when the line actually comes out!! Anyone else agree with that? I adore MAC, but all of their collections have me confused on which items I really really want. There are so many- too many- to choose from!

But, Chanel has a short and sweet line coming out that doesn't boggle my mind.
The Chanel Les Impressions Makeup Collection by Chanel for Spring 2010
Face: Radiant Glowing Highlightning Powder Empreinte de Chanel, $65
note to readers: thought I think this looks beautiful, I highly doubt I'd be able to justify paying that much for a face powder! :( 

Lips: Rouge Allure Lipstick. $32
Colors: Delicieuse, Apricot (the one I want, it's the last lipstick in this row of four)
              Insouciante, Mauve
              Incognito, Rosewood
              Impertinente, Brown

Lips: Glossimers. $27 ( i love the name "Glossimers")
Colors: Futile, pink
             Maline, gold (I want this one, it's on the left)

Nails: Le Vernis Nail Colour $23
Colors: 505, Particuliere
             506, Tendresse
             503, Inattendu
(I want them all! I love pale nail colors.)

Eyes: Les 4 Ombres $56
Colors: Kaska Beige = warm, natural palette of beiges and browns. beige, brown, plum brown.
(I think this looks like a perfect palette for myself. I love neutrals with a touch of purple, always! And that, is exactly what this palette is!)
Chanel Les Impressions de Chanel Collection for Spring 2010

Healthy and Fast Lunches From: The Freezer!!

Dedicated to DeePulley: I hope this helps and can be useful in the meantime while I make new videos!!

Now first and foremost, the healthiest lunch of all (in my opinion) does NOT come from the freezer but, I'd like to mention it anyway! This is what I have been eating for five years, and is what helped me stay fit through college. Hey, we all know that can be tough!! It's..

TUNA! Solid white albacore: made with light tuna (go easy on the mayo!), and relish, chopped white onions, or mustard-whichever you prefer. I pair it with 3 Bistro crackers from Tollhouse. They are delish. (picture below)
-Also, a great sub for mayo is mustard! Try using half the mayo, and put some mustard in to take the place of the missing mayo. 
-Topping your cracker with tuna...and swiss cheese.. is a great way to make tuna a fun meal to eat!

Onto the Frozen Goods: If you're concerned about the health value of eating foods that come frozen, read this excerpt from amys.com: 
Frozen foods help people diet
Dietician, Jill Nussinow suggested that many of our unhealthy eating habits arise from “eating patterns”. Diets can help break those patterns.

Prevention Magazine recently reported that one value of eating frozen foods lies in helping you to learn about portion sizes. “I often advise patients to eat frozen meals for a week or two and then keep the little trays and use them while making dinner as an easy way to eyeball portions,” says Madelyn Fernstrom, PhD, director of The Weight Management Center at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. 

Amys.com: is a great resource! Not only is it the site featuring the food brand, Amy's (which can be found in grocery stores), but also, it provides different types of diet plans. For example, gluten-free diet plan, vegan diet plan, diet plans for allergy, weightloss, and those with sodium concerns! However, keep in mind that a lot of the items and meal choices are somewhat high in carbs! If you are someone who watches calorie intake and not carb count.. these items and this website would suit you the best.

1. Cheese Pizza Toaster Pops. Filled with organic tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese. 

2. Amy's Light in Sodium Brown Rice & Veggies Bowl. Made with organic tofu, brown rice, and vegetables. This bowl contains only 250 mg. of sodium.. compared to Amy's regular Brown Rice Bowl, which contains 510 mg. Most soups also carry around 350 mg. 

3. MorningStar Farms Grillers, Chik'n Veggie Patties. Put in the micro for 1 minute. Flip over, pop with a slice of cheese, and continue to cook for 1 more minute. After, dress your naked chicken burger however you please. How do I? I top mine with some small tomatoes cut in half, 2 small pieces of avocado, and perhaps some white onion for crunch value. Use some healthy option balsamic vinaigrette to dip and you can eat right off the plate. Or, place 1 piece of toasted wheat bread underneath for an open sandwich! 

4. Morningstar Farms Original Chik'n Tenders. Great to top a salad with, or just eat with ketchup! These also come buffalo style. 

5. Morningstar Farms Tomato & Basil Pizza Burger. These are a favorite of mine. The Morningstar burgers come in all different flavors; mushroom lovers, vegan veggie, original, veggie burgers, chipotle black bean, spicy black bean, and asian veggie. I have tried them all, but the Tomato & Basil is my favorite. Topped with a splice of cheese, it definitely helps me curb any craving I have for pizza. What I love most about these, they are so fast! Also, can be paired with an array of sauces (ketchup to mustard to balsamic vinaigrette.. to even cauliflower and cheese!). 

6. Campbell's Select Harvest Light Soup. All flavors are great, but my favorites also happen to be the ones that are the best for in regards to calorie and carb count! Here they are: Minestrone with Whole Grain Pasta, Light Roasted Chicken with Italian Herbs, and Light Southwestern-Style Vegetable.

A tip about reading soup labels is to always remember that most often.. the amount of servings in the can is 2.

So what does that mean? It means for the whole can... you have to double each number to see how many cals, carbs, fat, etc. is really in the can of soup! Best way to avoid having to deal with that is to only eat half or three quarters of the can! It's filling so it shouldn't be a problem. :)

I hope that this post helped! Please stay tuned, as this post will often be updated with more ideas! I am always finding new things and ways to stay healthy.

Thanks for following, and if you don't yet... please do! Happy Holidays
