Sponsored - Aveeno's Beautiful Change Challenge: Part 1

While beautifying our bodies with blushes, bronzers and other cosmetics is fun and makes us feel and look good on the outside, it's what goes inside our bodies that's the most important. That's why lately I've been approaching the grocery aisles like I do makeup counters – the bolder the color of the product or produce the better! Whether it's a ripe cantaloupe, crisp cucumber, or a pretty coral nail polish, I  enjoy shopping for vibrant fruits and vegetables just as much as I do for beauty products.

Fueling our bodies with fresh produce and lean proteins is imperative to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Plus, eating well contributes to improving our skin, hair, and nails. So if you feel good and energized, you're going to radiate from within no matter what makeup, body or haircare products you use. But, if you can find products that give you the best of both worlds like Aveeno's Active Naturals by incorporating quality ingredients such as oats, seaweed extract, soy, and shiitake mushrooms into their products it's a win-win!

Bottom-line, stocking up on with richly-hued produce and products made with naturally enriching ingredients is always a good look.

New AVEENO® PURE RENEWAL™ lets you renew your hair to its naturally balanced state daily. Unlike ordinary shampoos, these sulphate-free formulas have Balancing Seaweed Extract; bringing hair back to its naturally healthy, most balanced state with each wash, for beautifully healthy-looking hair.

Hey Antithesis!! I used to be addicted to Wendy's when I was pregnant. I would literally eat that several times a week and the other remaining days it would be Chipotle!

But after having Ava I stopped eating so much fast-food. I will still have an occasional Five Guys burger, but I try to stay away from fast-food and processed foods. Your body feels so much better when you put good stuff in it. Just like a car, you put in cheap gas it's probably more sluggish. Well, I don't know because I've never owned a car, but you know what I mean.

I'm glad this post helped motivate you!! Good luck!! :-)
