Well isn’t this a fun little spin: today I’m interviewing my hot little sister, Faye Evarts.

Sista, sista!

But before I introduce her, can we talk about THAT hair?! She’s done nothing to it- it’s AMAZING. So, so, so thick &
luscious. Rubber bands don’t even reach around her ponytail it’s so damn thick…super jeal, right?!

Not only is my sissy-poo bangin’, but she’s also a new blogger. Check out her accessory blog, Evillarts here ( << get it? It’s a play our last name, Evarts ). Mine & Erica’s blog design company, Blog-Doo built it- it’s super cute/sassy/vampy.

Ok, so anyway I’m super excited to introduce you to Faye ( BTW: I’m making the kale salad recipe she shares for dinzy tonight ).Enjoy:

+ Introduce yourself, ya little sex kitten:

Faye Evarts: Hiii! I’m Faye Evarts & I’m twenty one years old and I live in Newport Beach. I’m a San Diego native  & also Lauryn’s little sister. I am just venturing into the blogging world & it’s absolutely amazing! My sister inspired me with TSConf & Blog-Doo.

My blog, Evillarts, is focused on accessories. My main goal is to help you find “saves” ( inexpensive items ) for all those high fashion pieces you’re dying over! I’ve always been inspired with the fashion world and the artistic aspects of it; it’s a huge passion of mine…but it can be very pricey! Over the years, I have mastered my own style with incorporating less expensive accessories into my everyday wardrobe. Because money can’t buy style! Anyway I’m so excited to share all my saves & craves with everyone.

When it comes to health, just recently I’ve realized the real importance of taking good care of yourself & living a healthy lifestyle. I always ate whatever I wanted & was never happy with the results, but never had the willingness to change it. Now that I see the rewards, there is no other way to do it!

Changing my thoughts & behaviors has led me to an all around healthier lifestyle. I hardly EVER used to go to the gym or watch what I ate. Today, I feel so much better about myself! Exercise & diet change make all the difference- the more consistent you are the better!

+ Quick skinny tips or tricks?

FE: Cut bread out of your diet. Period. It seems obvious, but it’s not easy! I used to eat a lot of bagels, cereal etc. & once I exchanged it for fruit and veggies, I toned up FAST. I eat way smaller portions now too. Just satisfying my craving in a small way is enough.

Never deprive yourself, but less is more, so just have a bite or two. You’ll enjoy it more too!

Drink A LOT of fresh juice. Try to fill up on that throughout the day. At my favorite market, Mothers, I have them blend my favorite mixture: spinach, kale, pineapple, pear, & beets. It craves a sweet tooth & leaves me feeling rejuvenated the remainder of the day.

+ Weekly workout schedule?

FE: I work out every single day at the gym; I also walk/ride my bike everywhere because I’m a big believer in exercising outside. At the gym, I hit the treadmill first, then work on abs, & several variations of crunches. I also do squats & lunges before hitting the weights. I usually do fifty pound leg weights in sets & then work on my arms last with forty pound weights.

+ Favorite go-to healthy food?

FE: My favorite healthy snack is beet chips or a ‘Vega One’ smoothie ( with two bananas ). If I am in a rush I’ll grab a pear or a handful of green grapes.

+ Motivation to stay in shape?

FE: It boots my confidence & self esteem. It makes me an overall happier person & I know it’s good for my health. Occasionally, it is a nightmare when I am super busy/tired, but the hard work really pays off! Plus, it motivates me to motivate others!

+ World’s best beauty product?

FE: Crest Whitestrips. I’m obsessed with white teeth & nothing works better & faster than those bad boys! Plus, they’re cheap & you don’t have to spend a fortune at the dentist!

+ Natural beauty remedy?

FE: I love baby oil. I put it on religiously- it keeps my skin extra soft & glowing.

+ Quick, easy recipe?

+ Faye’s Favorite Kale Salad ( recipe by Sprouted Kitchen ):

2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

1/4 teaspoon sea salt & fresh ground pepper

3 tablespoons of fresh dill &/or mint

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

1 teaspoon mustard

Pinch of red pepper flakes

2-3 ounces sheep’s milk feta

Chill the F Out With Cucumber Slices!

Lauryn Evarts, lifestyle blogger, health blogger, and diet blogger talks skinny tips and tricks for weight loss.

Since my stress levels have been ridic lately with work, moving, more work, more moving, working out, cleansing, blog consulting, cooking, cleaning, blah, blah, blah, I’ve really been embracing anything that’s relaxing.

And cucumbers represent pure relaxation.

Doesn’t it make you think of a spa?

Ya know, ya know: cucumber water, cucumber eye pads, cucumber cocktails ( LOLZ ).

Anyway, I betcha didn’t know that cucumbers have tons of badass benefits. Check it:

>> Swelling be-gone! Cucumber slices help reduce swelling around the eyes. Have allergies? Try a few slices on the eyes ASAP for instant relief.

>> Buh-bye, sickie dark circles. No one likes dark eye circles- so use cucumber slices to reduce their appearance.

>> Make your skin glow! Dying for smooth, healthy skin? Try a cucumber mask. Directions: blend four to five leaves of fresh mint. Peel & de-seed the cucumber. Add mint leaves to the cucumber to make a puree. Beat egg white & keep it separate, then add this egg white to the cucumber mixture. Apply this evenly on your face for twenty minutes & then rinse it with water and pat it dry. Voilà! This mask will make your skin soft & dewey.

>> De-stress…Chill the F out. Throw some cucumber slices on your eyes, put on some Sade, & mediate for a few minutes. Mediating is the absolute best for de-stressing & cucumbers are known to help relieve frazzled nerves. Basically they’re the most fantastic natural eye pads out there.

>> Juice it up. Cucumber juice helps control blood pressure, it’s a powerful tonic for skin/hair/nails, aids in digestions, reduces the risk of cancers, promotes weight loss ( because they’re a water fruit & helps cleanse toxins ), & helps strengthen connective tissue.

>> Forget the carbs! Use cucumbers for dip— cucumber slices taste amazing with hummus, salsa, & guacamole. Cucumbers= no chips/crackers/bread.

So. Don’t neglect this wiener-shaped, ugly fruit ( yes, they’re a fruit, not a veggie! )– make sure to add it to your organic grocery list!

xx.L

P.S. I use this tool to make sure they’re sliced perfectly for eye pads.

I know I haven’t posted much on the blog about makeup— BUT! I have tons of tips to share so I’ll post them slowly over the next couple months.

My first little tipster: the Sonia Kashuk Limited Edition Brush Couture Kabuki Brush.

And guess what guys?! It’s from Target.

Rad, right?

This baby is amazing for blending any face makeup. The best part: it rolls down & up. I like that- I’m not a fan of my brush getting random shit all over it from sickie, MU case residue. Rolling the brush downward is super convenient & in my opinion kinda fun-!! I’m also a real fan of the hottie, 70′s print too.

I use this brush for blending any type of powder, bronzer, highlighter, blah, blah. Kabuki brushes are amaze; just ask any makeup artist ( see here for a professional MUA’s opinion ).

Oh, & got pimples? Don’t forget to clean your makeup brushes!!! PLEASE! It immediately washes off nasty-ass bacteria. My favie all-natural brush cleaner can be found here. It’s the bomb.com.

BT DUBS: the isn’t a product review- I really F-ing love this brush.

For realsies.

Anyway, what’s your can’t-live-without-or-I-won’t-leave-the-house-makeup product?

Tell, tell.

P.S. & turquoise polish can be found here.

All Natural Makeup Remover— Throw Away Your Store-Bought Shit

Lauryn Evarts, fitness blogger, health blogger, & diet blogger talks skinny tips and tricks for weight loss.

F store-bought makeup removers.

So over them.

Here’s a little story: a couple years ago I went to a holistic skin specialist. I asked her why there were small white dots under my eyes. Even though they were teeny-tiny- they were so annoyinggggg!!

Turns out the dots were from using store-bought makeup remover.

Yuck.Sick.Disgusting.Bye.

So she recommended all natural grapeseed oil instead of MU remover…hmmm.

Guess what? It works. Not only does it work, it works way better than the chemical-filled shit from CVS. Seriously, serious- I’ve been using it to remove all my face MU for the past two years everyday.

Other benefits? The oil helps to prevent pesky acne, sun spots, certain cancers, wrinkles ( <<< yay! ), diabetics, rheumatoid arthritis, stretch marks, & high blood pressure. Oh…& hemorrhoids too.

TMI? Whatever.

Try it out & LMK your thoughts. More au naturel grapeseed oil info can be found here.
