Always Loved Garnier Fructis
I’ve always loved Garnier Fructis and now I’m even more happy to be using their hair care products. Garnier’s latest shampoo and conditioner set has nourishing marula oil to help my hair become stronger and healthier. I’ve enjoyed using the Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine system with argan oil for managing my hair, so I was quite excited to try this new Sleek & Shine version with marula oil.
Firstly, the scent is great! To me it smells kind of like candy, sugar cookies, a hint of gingerbread and fresh cucumber. It’s such a pleasant experience to relax in the shower with Garnier Fructis’ marula oil shampoo and conditioner set, and try to figure out what yummy scents they smell like!
Super Nourished Hair with Garnier Fructis
When I lather and condition my hair in the shower with Garnier’s marula oil shampoo and conditioner, I can feel the light yet nourishing qualities of the set. I’ve always enjoyed their Sleek & Shine products with argan oil, but I can feel the difference the marula oil makes, in terms of lightness and movement.
It’s wonderful because it does a fabulous job of nourishing and moisturizing my hair, but it leaves it feeling so lightweight and full of movement! It’s still shiny, in control and smoothed down nicely, like when I used the Garnier Fructis products with argan oil; but there’s an additional bounciness, wonderful movement and lightness to my hair texture. It also feels less thick, as though I’m able to take better control over it. It feels stronger too, easier to detangle, less hair in my brush and on the floor. It’s natural for all hair to “shed” when you’re detangling it, brushing it. However, Garnier Fructis with marula oil really does seem to give it that extra bit of strength to reduce shedding....less knots, easier to comb and brush through.
Garnier Fructis, Benefits of Marula Oil
The benefits of the marula oil in this wonderful Sleek & Shine shampoo and conditioner set by Garnier Fructis are really quite evident. Not only do the products smell delicious, they truly do what they purport...stronger, smoother, healthier hair with a lightweight feel.
I still enjoy using my Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Leave-in Conditioning Cream with argan oil. It works great with Garnier’s marula oil shampoo and conditioner! All of the Sleek & Shine products are fantastic. It’s just nice to have options. If I’d like a lighter feel, I can go with the marula oil products. They still do a wonderful job smoothing my hair and providing moisture. It’s just a different experience. I think it’s best to give the whole range of products a chance and use what you see fit for whatever your current hair needs are. Sometimes you just need that extra super duper moisture and sometimes you just want to take it light!
If you want a great hair care product regimen from a hair care line with an extensive range of products for pretty much every hair type, Garnier Fructis is the way to go! Plus the scent experience is amazing. Fresh, deliciously scented products to make your hair cleansing, conditioning and styling experiences even better!

Estée Lauder Foundation Infused with Serum
My make-up and skin care routine has been taken to an even more awesome level, thanks to Estée Lauder. I’ve been using Estée Lauder Perfectionist Foundation. It’s amazing because it has skin care serum infused right into it! It has SPF in it too, which is also great for skin care protection. However, the main highlight of this foundation is how it combines make-up and skin care repair in one.
I’ve been enjoying Estée Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair serum as a part of my Estée Lauder nighttime routine, so it’s so cool I can enjoy the pampering effects of Estée Lauder skin care serum in my foundation during the day. It’s like having a skin care treatment round the clock, just wonderful...
Beauty Plus Pampering with Estée Lauder
Estée Lauder Perfectionist Foundation leaves my skin looking very natural because it is such a perfect match for my skin tone. Estée Lauder does a great job providing an extensive range of natural-looking shades so it’s easy to find a perfect match for your skin.
When I apply just a tad bit of Estée Lauder Perfectionist, I barely look like I’m wearing make-up. It just looks like my skin has a healthy, radiant glow. If I want to amp it up, I just apply a bit more, build up the foundation, and I can get more glam! I’ve been enjoying applying Perfectionist with a foundation brush. It gives me great control. I just pump a small amount, or more if desired, onto the foundation brush and smooth easily onto my skin. I can use the foundation brush as a great blending tool, to either reduce the amount of foundation in certain areas of my face for a more natural look, or to blend in more for a more “made-up” look.
Estée Lauder for Radiant, Healthy Skin
It’s been so wonderful to tie in all of the amazing skin care benefits of Estée Lauder’s products, into every aspect of my daily and nightly skin care/make-up routines. Check out my other blog post, where I share how I’ve been pampering my skin at night with a fabulous array of Estée Lauder’s nighttime repair products. I’ve recently tied in another fantastic skin care product by Estée Lauder that works amazingly with my Perfectionist Foundation.
Estée Lauder Advanced Night Micro Cleansing Balm works perfectly in the evening, to assist me with gently removing my Perfectionist Foundation while soothing my skin. It has a pleasant, light scent and super rich texture that melts like butter! It feels so good on my skin, like I’m coating it with a thick, rich protective layer of skin care repair and treatment. It melts my Perfectionist Foundation right off and leaves my skin feeling so soft and moisturized.
Estée Lauder Advanced Night Micro Cleansing Balm is also a decadent treat on make-up free skin. It feels like a special pamper treatment that immediately provides intense hydration and a boost of skin care repair. It's perfect if you feel your skin is in need of moisture or a nice deep skin care treatment. Not only is it fabulous for thoroughly removing make-up; it’s also great for maintaining skin hydration and a beautiful, radiant texture.

Pampering My Skin with Estée Lauder
I've been pampering my skin with a wonderful nighttime skin care routine by Estée Lauder. It's so relaxing and enjoyable to take some time to treat my skin to a super hydrating, restorative system that pampers my skin while I drift off peacefully to sleep.
Estée Lauder has created highly effective products that ideally work at night while your skin repairs and rejuvenates itself. Estée Lauder's night repair products take advantage of this perfect time to further enhance the skin's repairative properties while you relax and enjoy a restful night.
Setting Aside Some Time to Indulge with Estée Lauder
I've really begun looking forward to my special time in the evening when I get to indulge in my Estée Lauder nighttime system. It's so great to have some time to yourself to care for your skin and feel good knowing you're treating yourself. It's important to set aside some time to enjoy little pleasures in life to create peace and relaxation.
I enjoy my Estée Lauder time sometimes right before bed, after I brush my teeth, or sometimes a little earlier in the evening. I may do my Estée Lauder beauty treatment, and then unwind with a little TV or something good to eat. If I enjoy my skin care treatment a little closer to bedtime; it's nice to get right into bed, nice and cozy, and smell the pleasant scent of my Estée Lauder rich luxurious night cream on my face and neck. It's a comforting feeling to smell that wonderful scent, as a reminder I took some time to pamper and care for my skin.
I've been enjoying stepping away into the bathroom, shutting the door and disappearing for a short time into an Estée Lauder get-away. These wonderful Estée Lauder products can be applied and enjoyed anywhere...in the bathroom, at a vanity table, in bed...wherever you enjoy your pamper time.
How I Apply My Estée Lauder Nighttime Products
I begin my Estée Lauder nighttime skin care routine by applying Estée Lauder Micro Essence, to create the perfect base for applying my other products. Micro Essence is a skin activating treatment lotion. I apply it after I've cleansed my skin, and it works great either applied with my fingertips or with a cotton pad. It feels very moisturizing yet lightweight, and as though it is creating a nice, smooth, clean palate to increase the effectiveness of the other products. They sink right into my skin quite well.
After I've created a good base with my Micro Essence, I apply my Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum (Synchronized Recovery Complex II). The serum is so rich and decadent, just a tiny drop goes a long way. All of the Estée Lauder nighttime skin care products are high-quality so you don't need very much to cover your skin. The repair serum, as well as the Micro Essence and eye repair are also lightly scented. The night cream has a more noticeable, pleasant, floral scent.
I like to smooth my Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum all over my face, neck and even a tad bit around my eyes. It's so moisturizing and leaves my skin feeling hydrated with a beautiful glow. It sinks into my skin wonderfully and leaves it with a lightweight finish. I can see the radiance but there is no heavy residue, just a nice, smooth feel.
I add some extra protection and pampering to my delicate eye area with my Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye (Synchronized Complex II). It has a super rich texture and creates a thick layer to treat, soothe and give the eye area some special attention. I take a tiny bit and apply it with my ring finger. It is so rich, you only need to lightly dab a small amount sparingly. It smooths into the skin well, creating a lightweight finish. It also leaves a beautiful radiance.
Finally, I like to seal in all of the protective and repairative benefits of my Estée Lauder nighttime routine with my Estée Lauder Resilience Lift Night (Firming/Sculpting Face and Neck Creme). It has a lovely, relaxing scent that's perfect for drifting off to sleep, while all of the products work together to repair, smooth and soften. It has a rich, thick texture that makes my skin feel hydrated, moisturized and comforted. It leaves a nourishing glow that compliments the radiance of the other products.
When I wake up in the morning, after using my Estée Lauder nighttime routine, and I cleanse my face, my skin feels amazing. It feels so soft and smooth. I feel so good knowing I took some time the previous evening or night to give my skin such a well-deserved treatment. We all deserve to take a little time to care for ourselves and enjoy some relaxation. It's wonderful Estée Lauder has created this effective yet super enjoyable, relaxing beauty treatment we can indulge in while we sleep. I'm looking forward to enjoying more Estée Lauder pamper time.

Hair Care Beauty Fave
I’ve been enjoying some really awesome beauty faves that have been making a difference in my hair, skin and make-up routines. I’m so happy I discovered an amazing hair mask beauty fave that is exactly the type of product I like to have for my particular hair care needs. I’m always open to trying products that will help add moisture to my hair and this hair mask by Marc Anthony goes over and beyond!
It was amazing what an immediate difference Marc Anthony’s argan oil deep hydrating treatment made on my hair, even after just one use. It really did impart intense hydration and moisture into my hair. I would highly recommend this beauty fave if you want a hair care product that will give you an immediate result you can see and feel.
It was perfect because I could feel my hair had been deeply quenched by the argan oil but it had no oily residue in it. It still had movement and a light feel to it. It didn’t feel weighed down by any sort of greasy aftereffects. This mask is awesome for those times you want to gain some control over your hair, make it more manageable, nourished with a healthier look and feel. It’s great for when you want to see an immediate difference; and even more wonderful for adding health, shine and a more beautiful look to your hair over time. The natural ingredients like argan oil, grape seed oil and keratin; do a great job conditioning, strengthening, protecting and restoring your hair to a healthier state. It even has vitamin e and bamboo shoot extract. How cool!
Check out this hair care beauty fave here, as well as some of Marc’s other fantastic argan oil products:
Beauty Fave for Healthy Skin
Another awesome beauty fave of mine also has natural ingredients. The Organic Pharmacy’s rose cleansing gel is such a treat to use! When I first felt it on my skin I was amazed because I felt like I was cleansing my face with rose petals. As soon as I applied it, I felt such a soft, smooth sensation and that delightful scent of rose petals. This beauty fave is a definite must-have if you want to feel like you’re truly pampering your skin and using something super delicate.
The mixture of the organic ingredients and gentle cleansing are ideal for healthy, soft, radiant skin. It also has healthy ingredients like shea butter, grapefruit seed extract, aloe, barley extract, sunflower seed oil, geranium oil and bilberry fruit extract.
Add this beautifully scented rose cleansing gel to your skin care routine and check out some of The Organic Pharmacy’s other amazing natural products here:
Beauty Faves, Make-up & Nails
I had a lot of fun creating a dramatic look with some of my beauty faves for make-up and nails. NYX has some cool illuminators if you want to add an extra glow to your skin. They’re great for brightening up your cheekbones, brow bones, nose, chin, cupid’s bow, collarbones….wherever you want to add a bit of dramatic highlight. The liquid illuminators are easy to apply and you only need a small amount for generous coverage. You can even add a bit to your legs and shoulders for a sun-kissed glow. In my picture I’m wearing this beauty fave in the Sunbeam shade.
I added more drama to my look with a cool eye shadow shade from theBalm. Meet Matt(e) Trimony is a great matte shade that can be worn naturally or built up for more intense color. The whole theme of theBalm eyeshadows is really cute and creative. The texture of the matte shadows is soft, smooth and applies easily. You can also use it wet to increase the intensity.
For a finishing touch, I added a fun beauty fave to my nails. LVX nail lacquers add a unique colorful accent to your look. I’m wearing a pretty blue shade in the color Serene. These nail lacquers have great pigment and a rich, thick consistency so you only have to apply one coat.
Have fun enjoying a creative look with some of my awesome beauty fave products. Pamper yourself, add some glow and pretty color with these make-up and nail treats:
Skin Care for Brightening
I’ve been testing out some skin care products and just loving them! The first awesome discovery I’ve made is Farmacy’s Brightening Sheet Masks. Farmacy uses exclusively farm-grown botanicals in their beauty products. They’re a company that truly cares about providing the highest quality, all natural ingredients in their skin care products.
Afterward, I could immediately feel a difference in my skin. It felt so soft, hydrated and smooth. I felt as though it had been nourished, pampered and I had done a little something special to help take care of it. I’ve been enjoying continuing to use Farmacy’s masks and put in that little extra pampering time to take care of my skin.
Here are Farmacy’s skin care products so you can check them out:
Skin Care for Firming
The next skin care product I recently tested out is GlamGlow’s mud mask firming treatment. It may be a mud mask, but it’s a really cool silver color! It has a unique pearlescent type of look to it. Very fun to use! It also has nourishing all natural ingredients like Marshmallow and Licorice Leaf for toning and firming.
I would advise that with this mask, you use a sparing amount. I could definitely feel the toning aspect and a bit of a tingle. I also felt as though, because it’s a mud mask, it was helping to extract any impurities in my skin. Afterward, I definitely did feel as though my skin was toned, firmed and quite smooth.
This mask seems like a great treatment to turn to if you would like a nice firmed, lifted, toned feeling to your skin. As well as, a good treatment if you feel you would like a good thorough cleansing to your skin, to clean deep down and extract any impurities. After using this mask, I now understand why the packaging is on the smaller side. You definitely only need a tiny amount to fully cover your face; and it’s best to be sparing due to the thorough cleansing and tingling effects. You wouldn’t want to over do it with this mask. A little goes a long way.
Here are GlamGlow’s skin care products for you to check them out:
Yummy Skin Care for Nourishing
A yummy skin care treat I’ve been enjoying is a lemony delicious hand and body lotion from Not Soap Radio. Not Soap Radio’s skin care products include inspiring phrases, as well as nourishing, all natural ingredients.
Their yummy lemony lotion definitely has that uplifting aromatherapy element their skin care products are known for. It also has soothing, softening ingredients like aloe, cucumber, green tea, sea kelp, grapefruit, sweet almond oil, bee pollen… just to name a few. It’s amazing the goodies you’ll find in their skin care products!
Not Soap Radio’s lemon lotion feels extremely light weight yet very nourishing and hydrating. A perfect balance. You only need a little bit for that silky, luxurious feel that leaves a radiant glow on your skin. I’m looking forward to continuing to enjoy that lemony lift and smooth silky feeling.
Check out Not Soap Radio’s skin care products:
I sure am having fun testing out new skin care products and treating my skin to some nice pampering. It’s great to have access to quality skin care products with all natural ingredients that are healthy for my skin, and also have delightful scents that make my relaxation time even better!
12 Benefits Shampoo
I’ve been enjoying adding moisture and nourishing my hair with 12 Benefits hair care products. 12 Benefits Love at First Lather shampoo is a light fluffy mousse that cleanses my hair gently without stripping. It has a lovely, natural fresh scent reminiscent of fresh flowers. It feels good knowing the all natural ingredients in 12 Benefits hair care products are helping to hydrate and rejuvenate my hair.
12 Benefits Love at First Lather shampoo has wonderful ingredients like coconut oil and sunflower seed extract to help restore my hair’s moisture balance. It’s also awesome 12 Benefits provides guidance and tells us exactly how many pumps of mousse to dispense. I think it’s great this provides a bit of control so you don’t use too much product and perhaps over wash your hair; although I doubt it would be too possible to over strip your hair with this product because it provides such gentle cleansing.
12 Benefits Conditioner
A light mist leaves a beautiful scent I can enjoy throughout the day. You can also freshen up with a nice spritz of 12 Benefits Hair Perfume into dry hair.
What a great way to add that extra aromatherapy element to hair care! 12 Benefits Love at First Lather shampoo and 12 Benefits Conditional Love hair moisturizer both smell so wonderful on their own, but adding that extra finishing touch of 12 Benefits Hair Perfume makes the whole experience even better!
12 Benefits Hair Perfume not only smells fabulous, it also includes nourishing essential oils to further moisturize your hair. Ginger, Papaya and Awapuhi oils are some of the delightful natural treats included in this wonderfully scented hair perfume.
I’m really enjoying using 12 Benefits hair care products to strengthen my hair; and restore my hair’s shine and moisture. 12 Benefits hair care does such an amazing job using all natural, healthy ingredients to rejuvenate, protect and seal in moisture. You can truly feel the products sinking right into your hair.
It’s so comforting to know 12 Benefits Love at First Lather is cleansing my hair in the most gentle way possible, and avoiding stripping vital moisture from my hair. The delicious candy scent of 12 Benefits Conditional Love is absolutely a lovely pampering treat to soothe my hair with rich oils that provide much needed moisture. It’s great to have the option to use it as a hair mask treat as well. The awesome finishing touch of a delightful spritz of 12 Benefits Hair Perfume ties everything beautifully together.

My Awesome Ipsy Items
My Ipsy glam bag arrived and it’s rockin! Just love the products I received and had so much fun trying them out. The brands and items included in my glam bag were really cool, high-quality in generous amounts.
I started my experience of my Ipsy products by relaxing and cleansing my face with the Rodial Stem Cell Cleansing Cream. It feels so rich, creamy and soothing. It can also be used as a mask. Just leave it on your skin for 15 minutes. My skin has felt so moisturized and hydrated after using it, that it kind of feels like I’ve also applied a moisturizer. That’s how hydrating it is. Ipsy definitely did a good job providing me an awesome skin care product based on my preferences. That’s the great thing about Ipsy. You just tell them what types of products you’d like to receive, and they tailor your bags just for you.
Just let Ipsy know a little about yourself (e.g. skin tone, hair color, hair type, skin type), and they’ll send you products based on what you would like for your skin and hair. You can also let them know what type of make-up looks you'd like to receive and how adventurous you are with make-up. I decided to get super adventurous and let them know I’m open to pretty much any type of make-up they’d like to send me. This has been such a fun experience and I’m really looking forward to receiving more cool, fun bags!
Each month Ipsy sends us a unique cool make-up bag we can store all of our goodies in.
Pampering My Hair & Skin with Ipsy
I really love how pampered I’m feeling enjoying my Ipsy products. My glam bag also had a luxurious hair mask by the renowned Celebrity Hair Stylist, Peter Lamas. It’s so cool getting to try all of these exceptionally high-quality products. Ipsy did such a great job sending me a hair care product that fit my preferences to a tee! I can’t wait to receive more awesome, high-end products to pamper my skin and hair. You can really feel and even smell the caliber of these products. They all have such a good-quality, fresh scent. So relaxing and enjoyable to use everything!
I enjoyed Peter’s 5 Oil Hair Treatment Mask during a relaxing shower and saw an amazing difference in my hair afterward. It felt so nourished, moisturized, smooth, silky, and of course smelled fabulous! I find it so helpful that Ipsy is leading me down the right path, and introducing me to products to help improve the health of my hair and skin. Such a great resource!
Beautiful Make-up From Ipsy
Right now while I’m writing this blog post, when you click on my link it mentions something to the effect of, “Thank Paula for not being on the Wait List”. Sometimes there’s a Wait List so get in on these bags as soon as possible. I’m not sure if you will have the opportunity to receive the same exact products I did, since each bag is individually tailored to your preferences. If you’d like to purchase these products individually, just check them out via this blog post, and bear in mind they're becoming increasingly popular so some may be sold out. I’ve included an array of products here so you can still have access to some of them.
Be A Bombshell
Shower Items for Relaxation
Suave has also designed a delicious line of shower items for pampering and indulging in a relaxing get-away during your shower time. It’s great to have a break and feel like you’re escaping into a tropical island or beautiful field of flowers. Another wonderful way I relax and enjoy a peaceful retreat is with Suave’s line of body washes. Here are a few I enjoy:
A great old standby are Dove beauty bars. They’re always gentle, soothing and great for nourishing my skin. I particularly like their shea butter bars.
Shower Items for Exfoliation
Scented shower items work even better when combined with items with exfoliating properties. They also help your body washes and beauty bars last longer. I just drizzle a few drops of my favorite products on a pampering puff, my awesome shower gloves or exfoliating face pad. They all help to distribute my items while exfoliating my skin. My skin feels even softer and smoother! Here are a few I love:
Great Shower Items for Grooming
Grooming is always key as a finishing touch, and there are so many awesome shower items out now that combine grooming and fabulous scents. Venus has made our shaving experience even better, by adding delightful aromas to their razors and shave gels. Not only can we enjoy smooth, well-groomed skin, but we can enjoy the process. Skintimate and Pure Silk also make some delectably-scented shave gels and creams. Here are a few I have a great time using:
Don’t forget those added little touches that tie the grooming experience together. I also keep some helpful shower items in reach that further pamper me and are quite effective. A handy shower comb helps with detangling and an effective pumice keeps my feet as soft as the rest of my skin. Here are some helpful ones:
I love shower time and discovering amazing shower items to make my shower experience even more enjoyable. Create a magical experience for yourself to enhance your feeling of peace and enjoying a fantastic get-away!
Natural Look Make-up
As you guys know, I usually like to rock a natural look. It’s pretty easy to create a look that makes you feel “put together” while still maintaining your natural appearance. This natural look is great for daytime activities like a fun outdoor date, catching a bite to eat with a friend or just running around town getting things done. Sometimes you feel like heading out with no make-up at all but this look comes pretty close to a no make-up look, while at the same time, giving you that extra bit of a polished appearance. To start off my look, I applied a simple, light pressed powder to my face. I used Cover Girl Tru Blend Pressed Powder in Translucent Honey #3
I like it because it provides great coverage and works similarly to a foundation. I feel it’s perfect on its own. If you want to add some foundation or concealer underneath, that’s fine but there really is no need. It covers smoothly, evenly and fully but does not look heavy. It still manages to maintain a natural look It creates a nice matte, smooth look. The accompanying sponge works wonderfully. You can add a facial moisturizer of your choice underneath, for a bit of a glow peering through, underneath the powder.
Accentuating your cheek bones with a blush stick is so convenient. You just dab it on with the stick, where you’d like that hint of color, and simply blend with a make-up sponge or your fingers.
I gave my lips a sweet natural look and glossy shine with Maybelline Baby Lips Crystal in Pink Quartz #140 This lip balm smells delicious and it gives your lips a beautiful color as well. They feel moisturized and nourished; but you also get the benefit of a sparkling shine and a generous amount of long-lasting color.
Natural Look for Nails
To create a natural look for my nails, I first created a protective base coat with Sally Hansen Hard As Nails, a great nail hardener that protects my nails from discoloration that might occur if I applied my nail color directly to my nails. Next I added a subtle, natural color to my nails, to pull together my overall natural look with
My Natural Look Hair
To finish off my natural look, I just rocked my usual fun natural hair. I really love using Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine shampoo, conditioner and leave-in conditioner The shampoo is nice and gentle so it doesn’t strip my hair of moisture, just leaves it feeling soft with the proper moisture balance. The conditioner is awesome because I don’t have to use too much, a little goes a long way because it’s jam packed with moisturizing ingredients. It helps to soften, smooth and detangle my hair while I comb it in the shower. Plus the products smell delicious!
When I hop out of the shower, I replenish my hair further with an added layer of protective ingredients in the Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Leave-in Conditioning Cream It ensures my hair is even softer, more manageable and easier to detangle with my brush. I pop it into a ponytail and let it dry by air to keep it orderly.
Try creating a similar natural look for yourself. I’m sure you’ll have fun and will find some of my tips helpful for creating your own unique look. In addition, the tank top I’m wearing is by Karen Scott Check her out. She makes quality, durable clothing at reasonable prices.
Total Life Changes Mindset
I feel thankful to be a part of Total Life Changes because it’s a company that actually cares about us becoming better people. Yes, it’s great to make money, but it’s also important to work on who you are, character-wise and health-wise. Making money is not as rewarding if you don’t feel like a good person who’s actually contributing to society. Money is also not that great when you don’t have your good health to properly enjoy it.
The overall mentality in Total Life Changes is that it’s important to improve yourself both mentally & physically. Progressing toward becoming a better person is just as important as progressing toward your goals and improving your finances.
I feel comfortable being a member of Total Life Changes because I know everything that is stressed by the company is in our best interest. Although things might get tough sometimes, I know it’s in order to help build our characters and strengthen our work ethic. Nothing worth having comes easy in life, so building a business isn’t exactly going to be a piece of cake, but it’s all worth it in the end.
The values and mindset emphasized in Total Life Changes are those of strength, good character, truly caring about the TLC family, staying goal-oriented, and working hard to build your business. Although things get hard sometimes, a person with a true business mindset knows you hang in there until things get better. You will never see me quit and my die-hard teammates will never quit either. We’re in it to the end because we know what awaits at the end of our journey. For those of you who dropped out before things even got started, sorry you won’t be with us when we reap the rewards of all the sacrifice. That’s not what loyalty and strength equate to. The struggle builds character. You should have hung in there…but I guess that’s how the weak are weeded out from the strong.
This team is about strength so if you have what it takes, come on board, otherwise, to be straightforward with you…don’t waste my time. It takes hard work to build a business and I’m going to be real with you about it. I’m not going to try to con you and tell you it’s a bed of roses. However, the hard work doesn’t last forever. Things eventually get a lot easier and more enjoyable once you get over the hump. If this were easy, everyone would be wealthy. There needs to be some sort of value associated with this, otherwise everyone would be doing it. Not everyone deserves it. I don’t think lazy people should just cash in on a valuable business like Total Life Changes without paying their dues, in terms of hard work.
Total Life Changes Personal Development

Total Life Changes, Like-Minded Friends

This Total Life Changes experience wouldn’t be the same without the valuable friendships and kind people I’m surrounded by. Loyal people who stick it out through the end are what makes the journey worthwhile.
Another important aspect in the Total Life Changes mentality is to truly value people and understand how much easier the road is when you have good people by your side, helping to lighten the load.

Total Life Changes Skin Care Benefits
Total Life Changes has a range of skin care products so diverse, there’s something for every skin type. Total Life Changes Skin Care is all natural and organic, so you can feel safe using it on your skin. You don’t have to worry about any harsh chemicals that actually end up doing more damage to your skin than benefiting it. Makes you wonder what the sense is in buying most of the skin care products in the drug stores or department stores.
I’ve been enjoying using my Total Life Changes Pomica. It’s an awesome face and body cleanser with nourishing ingredients that make my skin feel completely balanced. It has a light, natural fragrance and feels exceptionally soothing on my skin. It seems perfect for all skin types, because it’s so gentle and just leaves your skin feeling in its most ideal, natural state. It doesn’t leave your skin feeling dry, tight or oily, like the conventional products you might find in the average store. To me, my skin just feels perfectly balanced….and so smooth.
In my video about Total Life Changes Skin Care, I discuss just how awesome my skin feels after using Total Life Changes Pomica. I talk about how just a little drop goes a long way and how Pomica feels somewhat like aloe vera gel. The consistency spreads very easily, so you don’t need much to cover your face, neck, chest and the rest of your body. Pomica is great because it’s not only a facial cleanser; it’s also a gentle body wash, perfect for delicate, sensitive areas and maintaining the skin’s balance.
Total Life Changes Pomica includes vitamins A, C, E, as well as Pomegranate extract, Apple Fruit extract, Ganoderma Lucidum extract….just to name a few of this awesome product’s antioxidant ingredients.

For My Total Life Changes Team
I figured I’d write this post for my Total Life Changes team, to provide you with some motivation and direction you can follow. After you’ve signed up and started familiarizing yourself with your back office; it’s also good to keep in mind, what sort of game plan you’re going to have for yourself, to be successful in your Total Life Changes business.
I have determined, to be successful in this industry, you must do at least SOMETHING, every day. In this industry we have freedom. That’s why I’m here. I certainly don’t like to feel like I’m under the choke hold of an Employer, who does not have my best interest in mind, just their exploitative agenda. Anyway, in this industry, we are completely free. However, with that freedom, comes responsibility. Since you’re your own Boss, you’re responsible for "telling yourself what to do". If you don’t create a schedule and game plan for yourself, no one else is going to do it.
I feel it’s imperative in Total Life Changes, or any other business venture you undertake, to consistently work on your business. I don’t feel it’s beneficial to turn our lifestyle here into a miserable 9-5, where we start feeling bored and miserable, completing the same tasks day after day. I think it’s important to be creative and keep things interesting. Keep the fun and freedom alive! That’s why we’re here, to live life on our own terms. My terms certainly don’t include feeling miserable.
If this lifestyle were ever to start feeling miserable, I wouldn’t want it. This is the dream lifestyle I’m creating for myself, so for this enjoyment to last a lifetime, it should never feel like a "ho-hum existence", like a drone going to some miserable workplace every day. No way, not here. Here is where I can be happy and live life exactly as I like.
Mindset to be Successful in Total Life Changes
There’s really no excuse, not to do at least something every day, to have success in your Total Life Changes business. Devise a game plan for yourself. I think it’s incredibly simple, if you think of the game plan as consisting of doing at least one thing per day that will contribute to your success in Total Life Changes. It’s even more simple, if you consider it could be something as non-complicated as taking a bit of time to add positivity to your mindset.
In this industry, you may come across a lot of Haters, once you start your journey toward success. Don’t worry about it; to allow some skeptical people to stand between you and success would just be foolish. If you want time freedom and financial freedom; just go for it, and know you have a lot of us in this industry who are supportive of you. We’re all going after the same dreams and are here for you.
You can simply work on building a stronger, more positive mindset, by surrounding yourself with those of us who are also going after the same dreams, or spending some time enjoying content by other people on a similar path (e.g. a video, audio, blog). Just feed your mind with whatever will help you on the path to becoming the best person you can be, and having success in your business.
Daily Tasks to Have Success in Total Life Changes
As long as you’re doing at least something every day to work on your Total Life Changes business, you’ll feel a feeling of contentment and accomplishment. It can be something small that does not take up a lot of time, and can be done simultaneously with other things (like listening to motivational content); or it can be something that takes a little bit more time, but is definitely worth the effort.
For instance, write a blog post or shoot a video about your testimony using the Total Life Changes products. It’s something fun and creative you can do while enjoying awesome products; and it results in gaining team members and customers. When you think about how fun the way we make money is, it doesn’t really feel like work.
Break the work up a little, perhaps create the content one day, market the content on your social media profiles the next. Or maybe do it all the same day if you feel inspired. Just don’t ever let the process start feeling too much like "a job", because that pretty much defeats the whole purpose of being in this industry, to feel free and have fun. Work according to your own pace, since you’re your own Boss and can certainly do whatever you want.
Choose what fits your personality. If you prefer being more "behind the scenes", then choose ways to share your business that are more fitting for you, perhaps blogging. If you’re more outgoing, put yourself out there and shoot some videos.
Maybe you have preferred ways of processing information. Maybe you prefer working on your mindset by reading books or maybe you prefer watching videos. However you want to work on developing yourself as a person and strengthening your mind is great, as long as you’re doing it, that’s what matters.
You can also take into account, what type of marketing techniques suit you best. Maybe you like more technical stuff, you’re interested in SEO, ranking your content in the search engines, driving traffic. Or maybe you just like to do things in a more traditional way, talking to people or offline marketing. Just do what makes you happy and gets you closer to your overall goal.
As long as you’re working on the little steps each day, you’ll ultimately reach the greater goal. Just don’t let yourself miss out on the little opportunities each day to work toward your financial freedom. Even if you just go through a little bit of training each day or learning to use your tools, it all helps in the end. Just do something!
If you’d also like to get on board my Total Life Changes team, start by checking out my blog posts and YouTube videos about Total Life Changes. Pay particular attention to my post about the Total Life Changes Compensation Plan, as well as the detailed sign-up instructions in my post about My Total Life Changes Experience Look forward to having you join us in living a lifestyle of freedom and having fun!
Total Life Changes, Bettering Life in Every Aspect
Being a part of Total Life Changes has been beneficial to my life in every aspect. I highly suggest you get on board, because this company is truly changing lives in every conceivable way. If you want to get on board with Total Life Changes as a customer, you’ll reap the benefits in regard to your health. However, if you want to reap the rewards, in regard to your finances, you’d be smart to come on board as an IBO (Independent Business Owner). Why just stop at improving your health when you can also improve your pockets?
The Total Life Changes Staff is Awesome!
Total Life Changes is a company with nothing but the utmost moral fiber. Dealing with the Total Life Changes staff is a sheer pleasure, because they are so competent, efficient and kind. When you chat with a Total Life Changes Customer Service Rep, you feel nothing but a lack of aggravation, because you’re not dealing with the incompetence prevalent in other companies. The TLC Reps will have your issue dealt with and solved promptly; and treat you with the highest amount of courtesy while doing so.
Health and Wealth with Total Life Changes
I feel so content being a part of Total Life Changes because everything makes perfect sense. It makes sense to purchase the products I already need and use, from my own company that’s paying me. I no longer feel a need to frequent the health/vitamin store I used to purchase my vitamins from. They're not paying me, and their vitamins don't give me the same boost I feel when I take my Total Life Changes liquid vitamin, Nutra Burst. It's certainly easier to digest than taking vitamins in pill form. Plus, it absorbs more completely, has a 98% absorption rate, compared to vitamins in pill form. It’s also fun to come up with new ways to enjoy my Nutra Burst. In this picture, I’m enjoying my Nutra Burst in a delicious strawberry aloe vera drink. I added some refreshing raspberries too!
You can also have fun enjoying your Total Life Changes products. There’s a product for everyone! Whether you’re interested in losing weight or just being healthy, you’ll find something you love. We’ve got everything ranging from natural pain relief to skin care; and all of our products are natural, organic and good for you. Let’s not forget the coffee that I love! If you’re drinking coffee every day anyway, why not drink your own company’s coffee and get paid for it? Plus, our organic coffee has ganoderma, so it's good for your health. The average coffee in the supermarket can’t really compare to that.
Besides the benefit of good health, being an IBO with Total Life Changes is also healthy for your finances. In this economy, why not take matters into your own hands, rather than waiting for an Employer to help you? So many people are out of work or are struggling to make ends meet. Total Life Changes is a blessing, a ray of hope and a means to unlimited income. Total Life Changes has already created many Millionaires. What makes you think you’re not entitled to that better life? Those Millionaires are just fellow human beings. They're no better than you. The only difference is they went after their dreams. Are you coming with me, because I’m certainly going after the best life I can possibly have! I’m not scared to go after my dreams. I’m already seeing blessings flowing my way financially, by being a part of Total Life Changes, and I’m excited to see the additional blessings coming my way in the future.
Get on board my Total Life Changes team. You will be taken care of, in regard to training. It doesn’t even matter if you’re a Newbie. Yes, I love to have Seasoned Marketers on my team, but Newbies are welcome too. This is the type of company that even Newbies can thrive in. All you need is two personally sponsored people to become Binary Qualified, and we have a strong spillover leg that is contributing to the success of our team. You will get all of the training you need to be successful. You're welcome to deal with me on a one-on-one basis; or join our team training group and private chat. Whatever makes you feel comfortable. You even have the freedom to build your business on your own, if you’re a Seasoned Professional that does not feel you need training. I don’t tell people how to run their business. That defeats the whole purpose of us being in this industry, where we can feel free and be our own Boss.
Newbies, also keep in mind you can make money with Total Life Changes without recruiting anyone. For more information on how our compensation plan works, check out my Total Life Changes Compensation Plan blog, as well as my other blog posts about Total Life Changes. Subscribe to my YouTube channel for more info about Total Life Changes and to keep updated. I’ll be posting more videos to help my Total Life Changes team.
