Get Swoon Over!

How many times have you did everything in the world to get that last bit of lip gloss out of the tube? Cut the tube in half , looking to find a slim object to get your lip gloss, or just throwing it away? Well I am about to get you Swooned up!

I remember seeing this wonderful lip gloss gadget a couple of years ago and thought it was a neat idea but also kind of gimmicky, I wont lie there are so many cosmetics nicks and nacks out there  on the market that you just don't know. 

So when I was offered to try Swoon for myself I just had to try it out for you guys.  I have to say its not gimmicky, it does what it says and it simple to use. 

Its simple, its a long wand with a rubber tip that you use when your down to your last bit of lip gloss, just stick it into your lip gloss bottle and you can easily get every last bit! How amazing right?

It comes with it own cap to keep it covered, of course these are not made to fit  any particular size of lip gloss so you keep your original tops! One thing that can be a pain is that  you do have to clean it after every time you use ( soap and water is recommended) . Other then that your good to go!

It retails for $12.00 and be bought at  or at other local beauty retailers. 

I chose to take pics of it being used in a long and tall lip gloss as I wanted you to see how far t really goes and to show it can really be used on your lip glosses. 

What do you guys think? Is this a tool worth using for you?

Check out the pics and the Interview below!



1.      What inspired your to build the brand Flex It Pink

Anna and I are childhood friends and we reconnected after having children. We found each other in the middle of our fitness journeys. We started a small group for support and encouragement with our fellow mommy friends on Facebook. The group was having so much success in changing their lifestyles and gaining so much motivation and daily inspiration that we decided to grow the group and open it to all women. We wanted to help as many women as possible and found that empowered women, empower women! It’s a chain reaction that bleeds positivity and success.

2.      Beauty is not only makeup its physical as well, yet what are some beauty products you can’t live without?

Mascara we are all about the muscles and mascara. We strongly believe that in whatever makes you feel beautiful rock it, there is no wrong way to rock confidence.

3.      What is your all time go to healthy meal?


I love this meal because it’s quick, easy, and I can shred as much veggies as I want into the dish and the kids don’t bat an eye.

– 2lbs of Lean Ground Turkey

– 2 Shredded Zucchini (I use the cheese grater)

– 1 cup of milk or almond milk

– 2 eggs

– 1 cup of seasoned bread crumbs of your choice

– Add salt and pepper if needed

– Optional – Add cubes of 2% cheese to make cheesy loaf

Mix in a large mixing bowl, spread into large baking dish (optional add thin layer of ketchup to the top) and bake at 350 for 45-60 minutes.



I love this recipe because it’s quick, easy, healthy, and delicious.

– 4 red bell pepper cut in half and deseeded

– 1lbs extra lean ground turkey

– 1 cup of cooked brown rice

– 1 shredded zucchini

– Grated up broccoli

– Minced garlic

– Mushroom diced

– 1 can of tomato sauce

– Optional – Cheese (feta or sharp cheddar cheese)

Cook up meat and season with whatever you like (I used salt free seasonings) and add minced garlic. Once turkey meat is cooked add veggies and cook a little longer on medium heat. Once you let that cook for a couple minutes add can of tomato sauce and cooked brown rice (I cooked mine in the rice cooker) mix all together. Add heaping spoon full of mixture into bell peppers and top with cheese or your liking. Cook at 400 degrees for 20 mins or so or until cheese is melted and browned. Enjoy!

4.      What inspired the Flex It Pink Virtual 5k ?

It was Elisha’s 31st Birthday and we invited our community to complete 3.1 miles of their choice for 31 years. We had some awesome women join us in very creative ways, and the Flex it Pink Virtual 5K was born. Why not keep doing this and complete 3.1 miles for some amazing charities and earn some sweet bling.

5.      For a woman to get started in her weight loss  & over all healthy lifestyle, what are some tips you can offer to help her start out to be successful?

1.      Set GOALS

These goals are going to be small achievable goals. For example your first goal could be to commit to exercising 3 days a week, or walking for 30 minutes after work every other day. Write your goals down somewhere you will see them every day. For example post them on the bathroom mirror or refrigerator so you will be reminded that you made a commitment to yourself to better yourself. Every month review your small goals and if you completed them reward yourself with something that is fun but gets you further in your goals, for example new walking shoes or workout clothes. We heard that has some wonderful motivational apparel to keep you working towards your goals.


2.      Consistent

This is where you schedule in time for yourself every day. You need to pick a time that works best for you. This will be different for everyone. For example I wake up at 5am every morning to finish my work out before my kids wake up for school. Anna gets her “me” time in before she picks her kids up from school. Just make sure you make that time a priority and stick with it.


3.      Find an Activity You Love

There are so many fun and exciting ways to get healthy and fit. Anna like to lift weights, I on the other hand love the outdoors, anything from hiking, running, biking. Anything that gets my heart pumping outdoors, I love to do. There is something out there that you love. You will just have to try new things until you find it. Remember there is NO WRONG WAY TO SWEAT.

4.      Nutrition

Your food is FUEL! To start we recommend keeping track of everything you put into your body. There are some awesome free apps out there that make it very easy to track your daily food intake. I like to use MyFitnessPal.  You can then review daily log and see what foods are empty calories, for example sodas and sugary drinks. These have no nutritional value to your body. Try to replace these empty calories with water. Eliminate fast foods completely from your diet. If you do need to grab something fast try to plan ahead and bring fruits, nuts, health bars, etc with you. There are also fast healthy options out there just remember to try to stay away from places that have fried food on their menu.


5.      Find a Support System

This is very hard for most people and we know because we started Flex it Pink for this exact reason. Having someone support you in your goals will take you very far in your journey. Just know that if no one else will cheer for you or encourage you in this journey all you need to do is come to Flex it Pink. Post a photo on Instagram with hashtag #FlexitPink, or in our Facebook group or timeline and we are right there cheering for you, alongside all the amazing women who are in our community. We have had great online fitness friendships grow into real life friendships from meeting likeminded people within our Flex it Pink community. Know that you are not alone, it’s a long HARD journey, but you are absolutely 100% WORTH IT!

6.      What inspired making the Flex It Pink apparel line?

We feel having motivating workout wear not only gets you pumped up for a workout but makes you feel stronger and more proud of the journey you are on. The more you are reminded that you are strong and capable of this awesome journey the more you will continue on this positive path.





7.      Do you have any summer healthy living tips?

Drink lots of water, don’t get upset if you miss workouts because of the mixed up routines due to vacation and hot weather. Enjoy your time you work hard for.

8.      Do you have a favorite quote that helps you ladies keep going even on the hard days?

Hard Work Pays Off. We find ourselves reminding ourselves that weekly. In business and in health it gets tough but we are tougher.

Palmers Olive Oil Formula Shampoo & Conditioner

We all know that Olive Oil is a good oil for skin and hair.  So trying it in a shampoo is no big deal. 

So for the first time in probably like 3 or so years, I actually had to go and buy shampoo and conditioner. I know crazy right? But why you may ask? Well because of blogging, I get so many products that I don't really have to buy that stuff.  ( funny thing is, when I came home I got a surprise package from Dove Hair care full of shampoo and conditioner) 

I went to Target my fave place to get household goodies, etc.  I swear I love that store.  I don't like paying an arm and leg for hair products, more so for shampoo and conditioner.  Its stupid to me. 

I came across Palmers Olive Oil Shampoo & Conditioner which retails for about $4.94 , Price is awesome right? I know.  I thought why not give it a try I just need to clean my hair. 

I was impressed that for the price it actually cleans my hair well, and doesn't strip. The conditioner does a nice job of adding moisture, it has great slip to comb through and there were times I used it lightly for a leave in.  I didn't experience any flakes which is great or stiffness. 

if your looking for a very inexpensive shampoo & conditioner for your locks, try Palmers Olive Oil shampoo & conditioner.

Kiss Fantasy Nails - My New/Old Obsession

I remember when I was younger like in my middle age years and well into my high school years, I loved getting my nails done. Heck I still do,  i would more specfically love doing the what we called "Lee Press Ons" because thats what you did, you would use the little adhesve tabs or glue and "press them on" . I was addicted, I would love going to the stores like Kmart & Target, Drugstores and the first aisle I would go to was the nail asile.  Not to mention for a few years we had a neighbor  2 doors down who did nails for a living (Score!) Yes i was a refgular. 


Fast forward many years ( im not that old though!)  and this chica still loves getting her nails done.  But lately I haven't had the funds nor the want to go the salon.  So I looked in my Bloggers Overstock drawer and found a nail set from KISS, that i was sent over a year ago.  I was also inspired by my coworker who enjoys getting them & doing them herself. 

So there I sat and about 10- 20 mins later my nails were done & looked the BOMB. I fell in love all over again.  I used glue, I feel I get much better & longer lasting results.  They stayed on for a little over a week , then went out and bout a couple more packs, plus a value size pack of over 100 nails so I can paint them my own. 


I've been obsessed, KISS now has these sets where they are already designed ( called Fantasy Nails)  like those pictures, they retail for about $6-7.00 and come with both the glue & adhesive tabs . I like to get the really short length and the med length ( like in the picture below) . I love these styles! I mean, for under $25 bucks I can get like a few sets of these nails and under 20 mins I have fresh nails that I get so many compliments on.  I don't have nay issue with them, they are sturdy and last, I also keep my glue around when times I over work my hands ( like typing constantly, washing dishes, cooking, cleaning)  and glue that puppy right back on!

Yes I'm addicted.  

So tell me ladies, what do you think? Are you obsessed yet with these nails?
