The team of Motives Mavens have created some incredible looks for you to create yourself. Every girl deserves to look her very best with some makeup.

With motives cosmetics you can be sure that you are wearing hypo-allergenic and paraben free makeup. Some of those over the counter makeups, contain some harsh chemicals that do not belong in your makeup, yet alone on your skin.

Not only are motives cosmetics made with the highest quality of ingredients, the price point is right there with MAC’s price point. Oh and some of MAC’s makeup contains these harmful ingredients. Just how does Motives do it?

Well, for one Motives does not spend money on advertising nor do they spend to have their product displayed in shelves. They rely on Motives consultants across the globe to promote and sell the products, paying a very generous commission as well. Therefore, Motives has more money spent on the product research than they do on advertising.

Looking for some extra income and love makeup? Contact me to find out more on becoming a Motives Cosmetics, we have free trial programs starting very soon ๐Ÿ™‚

Some Healthy Snack Ideas

Snacking can either break your healthy eating plan or help you along the way. Choosing the right snack is not always an easy thing to do when keeping in mind eating healthy, as some snacks can be high in fat, sugar or carbs or all of the above! Here are some of my favorite Healthy snacks that I enjoy throughout my day:

Hummus and PIta hummus-549420-s. This one I like to call my go to snack or “snack staple” as I have it often and love it! Hummus is a great alternative to other dips like ranch or even peanut butter, which are both fattening and high in calories. Hummus on the other hand as a delicious texture, yummy taste and goes well with anything! or I think so! haha!

Celery and peanut butter

Okay, even though peanut butter is high in fat, sometimes we crave it and having the same thing over and over, will get us sick of that something. So if you want some peanut butter, have it with some celery. Celery is actually negative calories since it has less calories in the food than it takes you to chew it (it takes more calories to chew it in other words). Its a delicious, easy and cheap snack as well

Almonds or another type of legume

nuts-fancy-mixed-nuts-1013tm-pic-1569Almonds are essential for your health, containing a high amount of Omega-3 in them. It’s a heart healthy snack in your hand. Feel like something small that you can just pick up? Instead of reaching for those chips, choose the nuts!! In fact go nutty for the nuts!! They’re good for you, plus low calorie.


If you are in the mood for some dairy, choose an organic nonfat greek yogurt. It has a nice creamy texture and sweet enough to satisfy your sweet tooth. I usually go for the yogurt in the morning vs. afternoon though, that’s just me.

What is your favorite snack to snack on during the day?

Eating Healthy doesn’t have to Cost $$$

There is a Social Media rant by an Overweight woman claiming “she does not have the funds to eat healthy and go to the gym”. She goes on saying gym memberships are expensive and healthy food is out of her budget.

I call BS on this! (excuse my language), but really, eating healthy IS affordable and there is no need to go to the gym in order to lose weight. If you really want to lose weight you will find a way. This is just another excuse by someone trying to get more tax dollars.

Besides, buying produce at the Grocery store is cheaper than buying junk food sold on the “aisles” . Heck even cookies, candies and cakes get expensive. It is all about budgeting and being smart. Making excuses by saying “you don’t have money to eat healthy” is just bogus and will never help you lose weight..

Losing weight starts with your mind, if a person really wants to live healthier they will. They will obtain free advice to eat healthier on a budget. There is plenty of information out there on how to do so, especially with the web being free.

Eating junk food should be the “luxury”ย  any way. Its the junk food that causes the Health problems which cause your costs to increase. Eating Healthy on a Budget is actually really easy to do. Here’s an example of some “low cost” healthy meals:

Breakfast: Nonfat or soy yogurt (usually on sale for $1 or less each), but in bulk, even less, Have a Banana with it as well. Less than $2 for 6 of them

Lunch: Bread (bought from the “reduced” aisle is still fresh, especially if you keep in fridge) and lunchmeat

Dinner: Chicken with vegetables (or wheat pasta and vegetables)

Its doable to eat healthy on a budget, if you put your mind to it.

Do you agree with me on this?


Secret to Sexy Lips

Almost every girl wants to have sexy lips, and every guy wants their girl to have sexy lips.

If you are looking for the one thing you can do to get sexy lips, I am sorry but there is not just one magical thing you can do to have those sexy lips ๐Ÿ™‚ Like with most things in life , there are several factors that will give you Sexy , healthy and full lips ๐Ÿ™‚

One of them being, of course Nutrition! Yes eating a diet rich in Omega-3’s can help you achieve fuller sexier lips! So cut up that Avocado and cook that salmon, get that Omega-3 girl!

You will also need a nice lip treatment to help keep the moisture in your lips. I absolutely love Motives’ 40fy Lip Treatment!

Motives Cosmetics 40fy Lip treatment. Moisture and plump your lips! :)

This lip treatment even tastes like Peppermint!! Your man will love it! ๐Ÿ™‚ This amazing treatment will re-plump your lips as well as nourish and moisturise your pout, giving your a full and sexy pout ๐Ÿ™‚


Once you moisturise your lips, you want to add some color to your lips (and what woman doesn’t want to a little color on her lips). The problem with most lipsticks, is your lips become dried after awhile and the color rubs off within seconds. With Motives lip colors you will be sure to have a long-lasting color for all day if you want! Here are some Sexy lip looks to try:

For a “Natural” look try this one:

Even though we want to go “all Natural” we still want some color, this look is achieved with Motives Cosmetics Rich Formula Lipstick in “Natural”

If you have a little darker skin, you want a little darker of a color, try this look:

How to have beautiful skin


Looking beautiful is not all about how we apply our make-up . It all starts from within our bodies, as well as taking care of our skin. Our skin is make up with a ton of little cells that are so delicate, we must take care of . It is important to wash your face twice a day, once when you wake up in the morning and once before you go to sleep.

There are many different skincare lines out there on the market, of course like all things, not all of them are created equally. We are all different and have different needs, which is why there are so many different kinds of lines out there. I will start with one that is Luxurious yetย  comes from All Natural materials. It is called Lumiรจre De Vie, which was created by Amber Ridinger. She created this line because she was so frustrated that none of the other skincare lines were good for her skin. She would need to mix that product with another one from another line, so she created her own line, with the help of her mom Loren Ridinger. ๐Ÿ™‚

The products of Lumiรจre De vie Include a Facial Cleanser, facial toner, an Intense Rejuvenation crรจme, hand & body crรจme, Illuminating fading fluid, serum concentrate, volcanic ex-foliating mask , Needle-free serum (this like botox in a bottle) and an eye balm.

As you can see there are quite a few Products in the line. All magnificent and designed for different purposes.

A basic routine with Lumiรจre de Vie would be used like this:

1. Start with the Lumiere de Vie Cleanser. Wet your hands with water and add the cleanser to your fingertips and massage your face in a circular motion. (this shall be done morning and night)

2. Next use the Toner to help balance the moisture in your skin.

3. Detoxify your face with the Lumiรจre de Vie Volcanic ex foliating mask,using a thin layer and letting it to sit for 10 minutes.

4. Next step is to treat your skin. The order of products depends on texture of product, start with the lightest going to the most dense.

5. Apply the eye balm around your eye area to avoid those dark circles and wrinkles around the eye. With Lumiere de vie you will watch them go away!! ๐Ÿ™‚

6. Use the Hand & body creme to keep your hand and body moisturised just like your face ๐Ÿ™‚
