B.A.D. Girl Review: The Katy Hearn 8 Week Fitness Challenge

On January 19th I started an 8 week fitness challenge hosted by the amazing Katy Hearn. She is an insta-famous fitness trainer well known for her amazing glutes that she built on her own in the gym! I have always been relatively slim but thanks to college living and alcohol I put on a solid 30 pounds. Since college I have been trying to lose the same 10/15 pounds for what feels like forever. I know 10 pounds isn’t a huge number but it does make a drastic difference for someone my size. I’ve cleaned up my eating over the years but I have not been consistent in the gym. Signing up for this challenge was exactly what I needed to get into a routine at the gym and finally make a consistent effort. Winter Challenge Overview:  The challenge ran from January 19th -March 16th and consisted of an 8 week training plan customized to either home or gym with email and social media support for the entire 8 weeks. The fitness plan incorporated weight and …

Update! A Year For Changes & Happiness

Hey B.A.D. Girls! Wow! I really had to dust off the cobwebs on my WordPress account. They have made a ton of changes since I posted last year. Yikes! I’ve been MIA from not only the blog but real life too. I made the decision to make 2015 more about ME. I needed to take a time out and really focus on what I could do to feel good about myself and where I am at in life at the moment. So I’ve decided to make changes and I thought I would share some of them with you all. 1. Hair. I chopped it short last September and then decided to add in some color. So I went with purple over my usual caramel/blonde highlight color. I’ve always been a plain jane when it comes to my hair so it being purple makes me so damn happy. 2. Travel. I always say I want to see the world, but then it never happens. This year I am finally crossing off a travel destination from my …

MyTee B.A.D. Clothing Winter 14 Accessory Collection

I am very excited to launch my new winter 14 collection of handmade turbands and beanies for my fashion brand MyTee B.A.D. Clothing  just in time for the holidays! I wanted this collection to be a bit more girly but still have that tough edge so embellishing classic beanies with pretty rhinestones made perfect sense. I decided on leopard, plaid, stripe and solid black patterns for the turbands because I find that these prints can be used very frequently as a neutral to pair with your everyday outfits. All of the pieces in this collection can be dressed up or down and will make perfect holiday outfit accessories and gifts! Peep the full collection here. Which new piece is your favorite? xoxo Nicole P.S. Don’t forget you can shop the collection and save 20% with my exclusive reader discount code SMB20.

B.A.D. Girl Tip: Eat, Drink and Feel Happy

It’s that time of year where there will be plenty of opportunities to indulge.  My secret for enjoying the holiday season and all the guilty pleasures that come along with it is easy. I do whatever is going to make me feel good and I focus my energy on the positive versus the negative. I feel good about that piece of pie because it was exactly what I wanted. I don’t shame myself for having seconds on Thanksgiving but instead practice gratitude for being lucky enough to have a meal to enjoy. I also make it a point to not participate in those after holiday discussions where people share all that they ate and how bad they feel about it. I don’t need to feel guilt because I am doing nothing wrong. When you feel good about your decisions you are rewarded with an equally good outcome (i.e. no increase on that scale). It has worked for me thus far so I challenge you to do the same this year! What is your favorite holiday indulgence?  xoxo …

B.A.D. Girl Review: Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair #RapidResults

I am all about my skin and keeping it tight so I was thrilled to try out the Neutrogena Rapid Repair product line, which promises to deliver #RapidResults! I would like to call out that I do not necessarily have wrinkles so the products were used for improving skin appearance and minimizing fine lines. I was gifted the full line, however I used the eye cream and night time moisturizer the most. Rapid Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream: This lightweight eye cream contains Retinol SA and is clinically proven to fade the look of crows feet, brighten and even under eye area, reduce the look of dark circles and smooth fine lines.  I could feel the product working the moment I put it on and after a few days I noticed that the skin under my eyes was brighter and looked tighter. Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Moisturizer: This moisturizer has the highest concentration of Retinol SA and proven to fade the look of deep wrinkles, brighten skin tone and smooth fine lines. The moisturize causes skin …

B.A.D. Girl Review: Eyewear from Firmoo

If I told you how long it has been since I got a new pair of glasses you might be scared to know what the heck I have been wearing. Thankfully, I was asked by Firmoo.com to do a product/service review. Woo-hoo! I selected these rectangular frame eyeglasses, which come in both black and tortoise. Pros: Really affordable prices Quick turnaround time Glasses are nice quality The virtual try-on is very helpful Comes with a hard case, cleaning cloth and an additional fabric carrying case Cons: Would have liked more fashion-forward options The lenses I chose were supposed to help with the way that my eyes appear smaller due to my prescription but I did not notice a difference. If you are in the market for a new pair of specs I definitely recommend checking Firmoo out. They have a First Pair Free Program for new customers where all you have to pay for is the lens and shipping costs. They also promise a full refund if you are not satisfied with the product. There …

B.A.D. Girl Beauty: August 2014 Favorites

I am finally back with my current beauty favorites! I don’t normally wear much makeup in the summer, but when I do I have really been loving these products, especially the lippies! Here are my thoughts on each. EYES: Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow – Bad To The Bronze, $6.99 One of my fav beauty vloggers Amanda Ensing influenced this purchase and I loveee it. The staying power is insane and I love the beautiful shimmery bronze color. The product is very buildable and it’s exactly what I needed for when I want to glam up my natural/brown makeup look. NYX Pin-Up Tease Mascara, $5.99 I have super long and unruly lashes especially the ones at the outer corners of my eyelids and the wand on this mascara does exactly as it promises. It’s designed to separate and curl your lashes. The brush size is smaller than I am used to but it works so good. My only complaint is that it is hard to fully take off without the use of makeup remover. LIPS: Milani Lipstick- …
