Hello Everyone!

I just wanted to pop in and give you an update on what I've been up to lately.

I'm organizing and hosting a conference! Yes, a conference and it's all about using Facebook Live, Periscope and Youtube Live/Connect.

Guess what?
If you're a blogger, social media influencer, a small business owner or a brand you should be using at least Facebook Live right now!

If you sell Jamberry, Norwex, doTerra etc, etc, etc you should be using these apps. I mean it, right now! These apps are a new way to connect with your true potential readers and customers in an authentic and very effective way.

I just watched a girl on periscope last night who was talking about her Jamberry business. I asked her if she was using Facebook Live in her Jamberry Facebook group and she said she just started using it and it totally changed her business and she can't wait to do more Facebook Live parties!

If you you're not sure where to start with Facebook Live, Periscope or Youtube Live/Connect you should join us at the HELLO LIVE Conference. We'll teach you how to use these apps from how to login and the features of the apps to more advanced ways of using them.

LANEIGE “Power of 7” K-Beauty Regimen

This post was created in partnership with LANEIGE as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review, but all opinions within are my own

Summer in Utah means lots of sun and dry dry air. This can take a toll on your skin. Did you know that Korean skin care products are becoming very popular? LANEIGE which means the snow is one of the biggest beauty brands in Korea. Over the past 2 weeks I've been using the LANEIGE patented Advanced Water Science “Power of 7” K-beauty regimen.  I love how fresh and hydrated my skin has been since starting this skin care regimen. 
  • Cleanse
  • Clarify
  • Balance
  • Treat
  • Moisturize
  • Revive 
  • Protect
The regimen starts with the Multi Action Cleaner that include an exfoliator and a makeup remover. I love this because you can take off your makeup and cleans together. It has a mild lather. Second is the Power Essential Skin Toner. It helps purify the skin with mineral water. Then you Balance your skin with the Water Bank Serum. This 24-hour hydrating serum is infused with hydro ionized mineral water. After treat your skin with the Water Bank Gel Cream. This cream acts to cool and hydrate the skin. Next add your Balancing Emulsion moisturizer. For broad spectrum 50+ spf protection and some nice coverage use the 5- in -one BB Cushion. The BB Cushion is like a BB cream in a cushion with a chamois try applicator sponge that glides onto your skin to even skin tone in a light buildable formula and protect your skin from the harmful rays of the sun. One of the things I like about the BB Cushion is it doesn't have that gross sun block smell you get in other facial products with spf protection.

One a week add the Water Sleeping Mask to your routine. It's infused with apricot and chestnut extracts that over time help exfoliate and brighten your skin.

Bonus the packaging for LANEIGE products are beautiful. I display mine on a pretty pink glass cake plate on my vanity.

Double bonus the LANEIGE products are affordable and exclusively available at Target, both online and in stores.

Easy No Bake Strawberry Key Lime Mini Pies

Post sponsored by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #EffortlessPies #CollectiveBias

Pie is one of my all time favorite desserts. Cream pies are the best of all. I have a super easy pie recipe for you and my friends who don't cook or bake. It requires simply layering a few ingredients and the results are so so delicious. These little mini key lime pies will become a family favorite. They are perfect for a wedding shower, birthday luncheon with friends or any occasion really! You only need 4 ingredients and there is no stirring, mixing or baking required. Kids will love to help you make these pies and the clean up is a breeze.
Are you ready for this!?!

Gather your supplies. Have you seen those cute mini graham cracker crusts from Keebler®? They are in the baking supplies lane. Get a 4 pack of Oikos® Key Lime Greek Yogurt and a can of original Reddi-wip® whipped cream both in the dairy lane. They add a pint of fresh strawberries and a lime to your cart. I got all these items at my local Walmart.

Easy Mini Key Lime Pies

  • Keebler® Ready Crust® Mini Graham Cracker Pie Crust-6 pack
  • 4 Pack of Oikos® Key Lime Greek Yogurt
  • Reddi-wip® original 13 oz
  • 1 pint of fresh strawberries
  • 1 lime

In each pie crust add a swirl of Reddi-wip® whipped cream then fill the rest of the pie crust with the Oikos® Key Lime Greek Yogurt.

Slice strawberries and layer on top of pie.

Add another dollop of Reddi-wip® on top of the strawberries. Garnish with a thin slice of lime
