How I Stay Active Living Overseas

LaCasabloga-Rome Stretch3

Leading up to the months I would be heading overseas, I was thinking of options on how I could continue my active lifestyle in another country. I was so spoiled on having a gym in our apartment community literally steps away from where I lived, so that made it easy to work out and also have access to all the equipment I needed.

Since leaving South Florida, I have had to get creative with my work out routine since I no longer have access to a gym or a plentiful selection of free weights, treadmills, and stair masters galore. Sure, I like to explore new cities by running every now and then but I didn’t want to rely solely on running to help keep me in shape.

This is when I saw that Fit & Thick had monthly workout subscriptions where I could download 20 new workouts per month and workout from literally anywhere. For me, one of my biggest challenges, is knowing WHAT workouts to do. So the fact that F&T pretty much gives you the exact workouts you need to do in the right order in the palm of my hands is what sold me. I love that no matter where I go, I can still take the exercises with me so I don’t have any excuses as to why I shouldn’t do it. The next few months for me will have quite a bit of traveling, but I’m not worried about my morning workouts as I know I will have them available right on my phone.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation

Urban Decay Naked Skin

Just as most of us experience, I am currently going through my occasional breakout stage right now and as much as I’d like to wish for it to disappear overnight, all I can do is continue to be faithful to ye’ old skincare regimen.

In the meantime, in between time, I need makeup to cover up my blemishes without looking to heavy on my skin. I had heard good things about the Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation and after browsing Sephora and doing my own research, I decided to give it a go. I had never tried Urban Decay foundation before (although I am a big fan of the Naked palette) and love trying new brands, so didn’t think I could go wrong. After all, Urban Decay is one of the holy grail makeup brands, can we all agree with that?!
