"You have WHAT in your gym bag?!"

Is what big daddy said after I told him the contents of my gym bag. We had gotten our next cycle of supplements in the mail the other day and with it came a free drawstring gym bag. His exact question was, "so what all do you have in your gym bag?" Let's extra pair of socks, my workout notebook, rubber bands for my hair, towel, mp3 player, a granola or cereal bar, and my Pond's cleansing towelettes. LOL.

A few weeks back I became involved with Pond's. They sent me a 30-day sample of their wet cleaning towelettes. According to Pond's, these towelettes are more effective at removing dirt and makeup than other leading brands--up to 40% more. I don't wear makeup, but figured it would totally benefit me because of how "dirty" and "oily" and just plain gross my face gets after I work out. Splashing water on my face and then wiping it off with my "gym" towel just wasn't doing anything for my face, besides drying it completely out.
This is definitely nothing like the Pond's products my grandmother used when I was growing up. The towelettes are wet but not sopping. Best thing is that they have vitamin E and chamomile in it, making them super gentle on my face. It was like using a baby wipe but way better. ;) They are super easy and fast to use. The cloths themselves are not scratchy like most other brands I've tried--they are really soft and gentle. One of the things I noticed right away was how after I wiped my face, I didn't get that soapy after-feeling. Just a fresh clean face.

It kinda made me wish I did wear know so I could wipe it off. :) So thats what I did. I put on some waterproof mascara and headed to the gym. Oh my word! Throughout my workout I sweated up a storm, as usual, mascara never even ran (great stuff). Headed to the bathroom to clean up and whipped out my cleansing cloths. Take the dirty sweat off my face, it did. Along with my mascara that didn't even run during my workout. No raccoon eyes for me (I know a lot of you out there know what I'm talking about). AWESOME!

Why do you (insert social media prefernce here)?

So I was asked this question yesterday. (Well I was actually asked why do I blog and why do I follow "celebities" on twitter). To date, I have: blogger, twitter, facebook, myspace, linked in, and this moment accounts. WOW!

Why do I blog? Simply put-->I love it! Great stress release. And my blog peeps are the best. I know that I am never "the only one" going through something. I love being a part of a "family" that misses hearing about my life when ever I'm away for a day, a week, or even a month. I love how we just all seem to get along and really are there for each other...happy, sad, surprising, and sometimes through devastating circumstances.

Why do I follow celebrities on twitter? Well, to those in the know (lol), twitter makes them seem a lot more human...real. They really do have regular lives. Except they get their picture taken almost all of their waking moments.

Facebook and myspace have actually linked me to my past. Friends from way back in the day...i'm talking like babysitter/preschool times here. Highschool...and even college. As you already know, I was born and raised in Hawaii. I attended private school my entire life! 12 years to be exact. Uniform and all, church and all. After I graduated from highschool I packed up and moved to Las Vegas for college (UNLV). How I ended up here in Louisiana really doesn't need to be relived but I'm here. I have found so many people along my life's journey that I have completely lost touch with. Now we are re-connected, re-forming bonds. Don't you love that?! I know I do.

My linked in account--> well I haven't really, really done anything with that just yet. I know I want to be able to network with other entrepreneurs and I believe that linked in would be great. I still need to learn more about it.

I was lucky to be a beta tester for this moment. I love the concept of breaking down a key moment in your life, to fill the world in on exactly how you were feeling at that time.

Simply put--why do I social media? Because its fun an addicting! I love how you can connect and relate with so many different people in all aspects of life...young and old, through tragedy and joy, personally or on a business level.
