Jewelry Heaven! The beautiful Karen Egren shares her line with us!

I had the most amazing fun girly day today! I got to spend a few hours with the amazing Karen Egren... jewelry accessorista! Karen's  jewelry line has the most beautiful pieces. Absolutely stunning! What I love is anyone can find something no matter their price point... her pieces start at $20 to luxury prices. I was slightly overwhelmed because every single thing she had laid out was one hundred percent my style. 
Something really exciting...look for her jewels in the October issue of Cosmo!!  Check out her out here: http://www.karenegren.com/   15% discount with coupon code 'SARDUN15' through 9-22-12.

My favorite make up look & OOTD

Hello, sweet beauties. It's been a while. I miss all of you. I've been extremely busy this summer with the kids and my new Body By Vi venture. I do have to say though I haven't been as much into beauty as I have been in the past but I feel the best I think I've ever felt. I want to share with you the make up I've been doing for the past few weeks and I think it's going to stick around for a while. It makes me feel confident. That's what we all want, right? Self tanner can always boots the confidence though. :) 

I think I need to start blogging again. What do you think?

Self tanner: Rodial Brazilian Tan in Dark (love!), Lancome Genifique as my base, Laura Mercier Secret concealer #1, Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder, Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation (Desert Beige), Bobbi Brown Bronzer #1, Benefit Coralista Blush, Smashbox Waterproof shadow liner in Starstruck (on top and bottom), CoverGirl Shimmering Sands e/s, the lightest all over the lid, Benefit Flatter me on lid up the crease, L'Oreal Voluminous mascara Carbon Black, MAC Cremesheen Glass in Double Dare (lovvveee this)
Shirt: Forever 21, Necklace: House of Harlow Resin, Earrings: Target


I like green. Could you tell? Hmmmm...Probably. My tank is just a simple cheapy tank from Forever 21, skirt is from Hot Miami Styles <---- I am loving this style and they have other colors that I MUST GET! I'm loving the peach color. Necklace is from House Of Harlow. This is one of my all time favorite necklaces. Shoes BCBG.

Hope all of you are having a fantastic summer! Stay cool!

Challenge update!

Hey hey! Sorry I haven't updated my blog in a while. May was a busy month! Birthdays (my oldest just turned 5 ahhh), field trips, and pre-school graduation!

I wanted to update you on my progress with the Body By Vi 90 Day challenge! When I first started this I had every intention of working out 3-5 days a week but that didn't happen as planned. I only worked out once. Once! Much to my surprise though... it looks as if I have been working out. With the Vi-shape I'm burning fat and building lean muscle at the same time so while it's SOOOO important to workout (and will get way better results) my body is working for me from actually getting all nutrition it so desperately needed!
This week though... I'm getting serious! My husband has lost 13 pounds (188 to 175lbs) and doesn't want to lose anymore and wants to get ripped. I'm good at the weight I am and want to get super toned so it's gym time, baby!!! :)

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at saritadunstan@hotmail.com  I'd love to help you get started on your fitness journey and feeling confident!! 

For more info visit http://sarahbella.bodybyvi.com make sure you watch the 2nd video called "What do I take"... this is what made me want to do this!

I've lost 1-2 more lbs since I took this photo... just depends on the day! :oP

Finally feel CONFIDENT in a form fitting dress like this! Whoo hoo! (dress from hotmiamistyles <--- link to dress)

Building lean muscle, baby! So excited... and like I said...I haven't worked out. :)

I'm so beyond excited about all of this!! Totally made my summer because I am ready to get my swimsuit on!! :)

She is on the challenge... that is my goal!! :)

I love green & I heart Target!

For the past 8 months I've had a mild ok out of control obsession with anything green. Kelly green, mint green, seafoam green, turquoise green.  My husband says if I had a can of mint green paint I'd paint everything in the house (and I sorta have). Good thing I ran out otherwise the kids would be next. Hmm, just kidding.  Maybe. :op

Surprisingly enough I've been able to find most of my lust-haves really cheap from good-old-never-let-ya-down Target! 

Green cardi- Target (still in stores). I could wear this everyday!
Necklace- Target (in stores now)
Tank- Target
Jeans- Target... yeah, I love Target. I'm not ashamed. 

Green scarf... you guessed it... Target.
Earrings from a local store called The Clothing Cove.

Funny story. So, today I was at Target buying that green cardigan (the one pictured is actually my bestfriends) and I had another green item on the checkout belt. The lady looked at me and then said "Huh, you must really like this color." (I was also wearing green... as I said, slightly obsessed). "Yeah, I love this color. It's my favorite". I said. "Yeah, I can tell. Gag. I hate this color. Yuck. I did mint when I was younger... been there, done that. I do not like mint". Ha ha ha!! I graciously smiled and told her that this color is really in style right now. I just couldn't help but laugh. 

Other mint loves I need in mi vida. 

Mint (and green variations) really is the new spring and summer color... it's everywhere, on everything. Are you as in love as I am?

Body by Vi 9 day update!

This is an update on the Body By Vi 90 Day Challenge... two words. Life changing! As I said before... I'm not doing this to lose weight or get skinny but HEALTH and toned up is the goal. What I didn't expect was to feel this amazing. I honestly feel like my fog has been lifted and I'm living again, happy again and excited about life. It's amazing what the right nutrition can do mentally (and of course physically, too!) I just wasn't expecting to feel this great. I don't feel like I'm Debbie Downer anymore... I feel like my brain is getting everything it needs so I can actually be ME! Who I truly am! This is awesome!!!
I am so passionate about this! I feel like for the past 3 1/2 years I've tried to help women feel good on the outside but helping women feel better on the insides first so they can radiate on the outside is 100 times more fulfilling!! 
I've been drinking my shakes one or two times a day and eating a healthy dinner. I've cut my cokes down from 3 to 1 a day...and don't reach for them when I'm hungry anymore! Taking vitamins. I'll be honest though... I've only worked out once. I had to recover for 3 days because I was so sore then I just haven't pushed myself to try again but I am getting the proper nutrition to help burn fat and build lean muscle mass... so I can't even imagine what will happen when I get serious about working out. It's exciting! 
I have lost 1 lbs (but I'm not really trying to lose anything...maybe 2 or 3 lbs MAX) and my husband has lost 9 lbs so far... in 10 days! So proud!!

So, this is my 9 day update picture. It's honestly not much of a change but my stomach does look leaner. It's not mind blowing or anything but I can see a change! 

I am so excited about this challenge! It's brought me back to life again! 
If you are feeling stuck and need hope visit my site and watch the videos! There is HOPE!!! 

See why this is so awesome!!

Current Obsession: Smith's Rosebud Salve

There are some classic products that you see all the time but don't give a second thought... but when you finally give it a try you think what took me so long! I love this stuff. One of the things I love the most is that it's been around since 1892! I love that even the tin looks antique. I've been a bit of a history geek lately. 
Aside from it being around for 120 years, this stuff is phenomenal! Probably why it's been around for so long!
This balm does everything! Most importantly... my lips are no longer dry and cracked. I apply this religiously. 

I love that the consistency is smooth as butter, however I'm not a fan of the scent. It smells like it was formulated 120 years ago but I can deal with it. Thank goodness you can't taste the scent. 

This is how you can use it: multi-purpose lip balm soothes dry lips, calms and heals irritation, and soothes the sting of minor burns. Try dabbing on dry elbows or knees to condition, and relieve dryness. Also an excellent remedy for the treatment of diaper rash.

Awesome! And it's only $7! Double awesome! :)

Do you love this stuff, too?
Hope you are having a great night!!
