Makeup 101: "Because You're Fabulous" Before & After

My before picture.  Good morning sunshine
GOOD MORNING LOVELIES!

So I am sure some of you are wondering what is this company "Because You're Fabulous" is about.  If you don't know now, you are about to find out.  "Because You're Fabulous" is not only a skin care line but it caters to us ladies feeling fabulous.

So what makes us girls feel fabulous but to look fabulous with amazing all-natural, all-organic makeup.  Sounds great right?  Why would you want dyes, ALUMINUM, or any harsh chemicals so close in proximity to sensitive areas like your eyes and mouth.  If you think about it this way...those chemicals can so easily seep into your skin or be consumed.  Scary...I KNOW!  That is why this revolutionary product line has changed and second-guessed the way I think when it comes to my skin regime or anything that I apply to my body.

I have to say that this is my first "before" and "after mini
makeup tutorial I have ever done so please bare with me. So I guess without further ado, let's get started :D



Step 1: Cleanse
My YUMMY delicious face scrub.  Definitely wakes you
up in the morning.  Exfoliate my skin cells.

Step 2: Moisturize & Hydrate
Green Tea Lotion to hydrate my skin after a good scrubbing.  Time to
TONE & TIGHTEN!!! 

Step 3: Foundation Coverage

Onto Mineral Foundation for the next step with my cute little travel brush. All
natural and healthy for your skin.  
 Step 4: Volume to Lips & Eyes
My fav lip gloss in LG104 and BYF Black Mascara 

Here is the final look.  

You don't need a lot of makeup to look & feel fabulous.  Enhance those eyes...Fill in those lips and you are ready to rock the world.  

WHY?

Are You a Prime Suspect of Any of These Offenses?

There once was a girl who living in a shoe....or wait that's another story.  Okay okay okay.  

There once was a girl who was overweight *points to chest.  She lived in a land where she thought everything was hunky dory.  She would eat, and eat and eat to her hearts content.  She didn't even think to workout.  Working out was tiring she thought.  She never once thought of the consequences of this behavior.  

She woke up one morning, looked at herself in the mirror and thought "WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU?" 


Well the truth of the matter is SHE was unhealthy because of the self-sabotaging things she errrr I WOULD do to myself.

Here is just a couple of funny/sad/gross scenarios from the past.  I just thought you, my readers, would get a kick out of the insane things I did to satisfy my hunger.  HUNGRY HUNGRY KIMMY!  SO let the embarrassing memories begin.

  • Spraying air freshener in the kitchen so the parents wouldn't know I had just cooked popcorn.  Because we all know that popcorn smell doesn't go away quickly.  
  • Using the microwave oven instead of the microwave to cook pizza pops or to warm anything BAD just to not wake anyone up with the beeping sound.  
  • Hiding my own personal stash of junk food in an office filing cabinet in my room  YUP! 
  • Folding up empty bags of chips or any junk food wrappers that I didn't want seen in paper towels If they didn't see the wrappers it just means I didn't eat it (me trying to convince myself).  
  • No cheese?  If there were crackers, the most damaging thing I would eat with them would be condiments like MAYO or BUTTER/MARGARINE.  SO gross...I KNOW!!!
  • No hotdog buns?  That's okay!  Just eating the wieners with a whole lot of ketchup was good enough for me.  
  • If my mother bought a loaf of garlic bread, it would be consumed in a couple of hours time..
  • Two bags of chips...maybe even three would be the normal for me on any day of the week.
  • I was one of those people who thought juice was healthy.  Drinking a whole jug at "good for me".  
  • Eating processed cheese would be a last resort snack.
  • Chef Boyardee was a friend of mine...cans at a time :S
  • Eating ice cream daily just because I wanted it.
  • Going out to the store/bakery to get yourself a BIG ol' piece of cake ALL TO YOURSELF.  

These were just some of the things I would do...probably did a combination of some of the ones listed above in one sitting.  NEVER AGAIN.  To think of all the time wasted on these extremely bad habits is just exhausting.

Looking back on some of the bad habits is quite funny to both Sam and I now but some of you may still be fighting the urges and temptations.  The journey will be hard.  There will also be setbacks but it will all be well-worth it in the end.  Stay strong.  I know you can do it.  Just look at me...now a Fitness Model.  Never in my dreams would I imagine that happening.   ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE.  

Question:  Are you a prime suspect of any of these offenses?  

What are some of the bad food habits you have had in the past?  

Please share in the comment section below.  

THANKS!

Reflection

When you look into the mirror, what do you see?  The answer is and always should be someone who you love both on the inside and out.

Some days I still struggle with this notion.  Being overweight, it is one of those mind/mentality things that creeps up from the past...my "chubby girl" mindset says "you need to lose fat there, there and there." or "you are not good enough."

Slowly weed out that awful voice in your head and replace it with something positive.  My mantra, in which I still use to this day....

"I am beautiful just the way I am. Love me for me."    

If there is ever a day you are feeling down in the dumps about your body image or you are just mentality tired, write up your own mantra or find one online.  Once you start saying it, you will start to believe it.

What an AMAZING day it was for myself and many other Canadians to come all this way to National level at the 2012 IFBB World Qualifiers on April 28th at the McPhillips Casino.  The physiques were just outstanding.  Way to go Canada!

Just looking back on how far I've come...the whole enduring and sometimes pain staking journey to get to where I am today is just astounding to me.  Many body composition changes took place by taking the time off (a whole year for those you don't know) from competing and coming in with my best body to date when I hit that big stage a couple of weeks ago.


I, Kimberly Ho, am very proud of myself.  6th place out of 11 girls out of Canada is pretty darn good to me.  It was a great experience as it always is when competing.  I was honored to meet some of the best in Canada...some who are now Pros.  In fact, to even grace the stage with them was a true honor already.  I hope in the sometime near future to meet each & every one of you again at Nationals.  

Here are some snapshots from the day.

One Life

With the recent passing of my boyfriends 35-year-old half sister, I have come to the realization this life we have on this earth is so very short.

There is absolutely no room for negativity. No room for not doing something you are passionate about. AND absolutely no time to waste.

Be grateful. Be thankful. Be aware of the impact you make in this lifetime.
You are important. You are the creator of the story of your life.

Now go write it.
