Meal Prep: Chicken Stir Fry

For the past two months I have been meal prepping. It is a life saver! I do it every week for my lunch for work. It’s easy and nice not to have to worry about food each day. It is also great for trying to get in/stay in shape.

I have fun coming up with different meals each week.

What I do:

Every Sunday is meal prep day. I do meat and veggies at the very least. This past week was chicken stir fry.

I made the chicken stir fry with chicken tenderloins, broccoli, mushrooms, and peppers. I cooked rice and I eat fruit with every meal prep. Depending on my work week I do prep for three or four days.

I add fruit or apple sauce and I’m set for the week! I reach in the fridge each morning pull out lunch and hit the road. This is so easy and stress free plus it’s fun coming up with a new recipe every week!

Love it. Live it. Eat it.

I Have to Have it: Tarte Cosmetics

The first I Have to Have it goes to Tarte Cosmetics!

Tarte describes their cosmetics as high performance naturals. They are a cruelty free and vegan cosmetic line, always formulated without parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, triclosan, sodium lauryl sulfate, and gluten.

However the thing that I find the most awesome about Tarte is that it was founded by Maureen Kelly, a beauty obsessed girl who wanted better healthier products both in ingredients and packaging. Tarte strives to be eco-friendly and glamorous at the same time and I believe they have achieved their goal.

A few Tarte products I can personally attest to are:

  1. be MATTEnificent colored clay eye and cheek palette
  2. colored clay CC primer
  3. clean slate flawless 12 hr. brightening primer
  4. clean slate 360 creaseless 12 hr. smoothing eye primer
  5. Amazonian butter lipsticks
  6. park ave princess matte bronzer

First I would like to discuss the packaging. I am a sucker for pretty packaging. Tarte does a fabulous job with packaging my most recent favorite would be the be MATTEnificent palette. Packaging is the first thing you see and it draws you to a product or a brand therefore I deem packaging most important. Well done Tarte!

Second the formulation of the products are amazing. The primers prep the skin well and really assist in making the look last throughout the day. The eye shadows are not powdery and have great color payoff. My all time favorite is the colored clay CC primer I have it in medium and I use it as a foundation. It makes my skin look absolutely flawless which is the point of applying makeup. The coverage, the skin match, the color correction, and the application are all top-notch. The lipsticks are like the name suggests BUTTER! They are moisturizing, creamy, and just the right amount of color. The shade selection is amazing as well. This cosmetic line is great for all skin tones and types.

Lastly I would like to mention again the fact that Tarte is a healthy makeup line. These cosmetics are formulated with good ingredients and not tested on animals. It kind of makes you feel good to use a brands that is health conscious, eco-friendly, and still super glam!
