Elisabeth Johnson http://www.beautyblondie.com Beauty, Business and Babies Wed, 23 Aug 2017 04:02:26 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Healthy Shamrock Shake http://www.beautyblondie.com/healthy-shamrock-shake/ Fri, 17 Mar 2017 15:25:32 +0000 http://www.beautyblondie.com/?p=3703 First off let me be the first to say Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Is there anything better than waking up on St Patrick’s Day to a delicious and health “Shamrock Shake”? This is an amazing recipe that makes this protein packed smoothie taste just like a shamrock shake! It is so refreshing and it taste too good to be healthy!

You will need:

  • 8 oz Milk
  • 2 – 4 Scoops of Shaklee Vanilla Life Shake (Depending on if this is a snack or a meal for 2)
  • 1 Frozen Banana
  • 2 Hand fulls of Spinach or Kale (I usually like to buy it fresh and than freeze it. It blends so much better when it is frozen)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Peppermint Extract
  • Stevia to taste
  • Ice as needed (I usually use 4ish cubs)

Blend and enjoy! I usually blended the smoothie a few times to make sure that all of the spinach and kale is nice and smoothie without any little pieces! Makes 2 Servings *Homemade whip cream is just for show 🙂

I know that this smoothie is a staple around here because we all love it so much! I would love to know what you think of it? Does it past the taste test of a Shamrock Shake?

Protein Puppy Chow {Recipe} http://www.beautyblondie.com/protein-puppy-chow-recipe/ Thu, 02 Feb 2017 03:09:07 +0000 http://www.beautyblondie.com/?p=3677 I don’t know if you guys have the same problem as I do, but sometimes it is hard to find healthy snacks that kids will eat. My good friend Sarah Solomon came up with the idea about making puppy chow healthy. Which is pure genius! I loved her recipe, although I ended up tweaking the recipe just a bit! I am excited to say that we have perfected it!

Here is a quick Video showing you just how to make it! It takes less than 5 minutes to make and it taste amazing!

What you will need!

Ingredients for chocolate sauce:
1/4 Coconut Oil
1/4 Dark Chocolate
1/2 Peanut Butter
1 scoop Chocolate Life Shake

Ingredients for powdered topping:

1 scoop Chocolate Life Shake
2 scoops Bavarian Cocoa Meal Shake

In a saucepan combine the following ingredients and melt while stirring constantly until melted. Make sure you taste it first, just to make sure its child approved 😉

Than in a large bowl add 9 cups of Chex cereal.  Pour melted mixture over the cereal.

Stir until the cereal is evenly coated. Then, sprinkle 1 scoop of chocolate life shake over the chocolate covered cereal while stirring to spread evenly.

Do the same thing with the Bavarian Cocoa Meal Shake for 2 more scoops! Add more if desired!

This is seriously a delicious and healthy treat! Magdalena and Brandon love this! 

You can put them in little individual mason jars so they are ready for quick and convenient snacks! 

I know that we love this recipe, but I would love to hear from you guys? Have you tried it, do you like it?

It is kind of like a built in Family vacation in a different location every year. This year was in Orlando, Florida! To make sure that I don’t mix business and pleasure I like to extend our stay to have half vacation and half business.

Last month at conference we were able to schedule in a quick family photo session. I am so thankful that we were able to make time to take these pictures because Baby Steven came 3 week later. At the time I didn’t know that this was going to be my Maternity photo session, so I am glad that we took some pictures of my belly too.

Anyways, here are our family photos!

My Skin Summer Care Regimen http://www.beautyblondie.com/my-skin-summer-care-regimen/ Tue, 26 Jul 2016 17:30:03 +0000 http://www.beautyblondie.com/?p=3565 Hey everyone, I hope you are all having an amazing Summer! I can’t believe that July is almost over! Where has the time gone? I know we are all from different parts of the world but where I am it is summer, and it is HOT! The last 2 years we haven’t had AC, I am defiantly glad that we got if fixed this year!

One of the hardest things to do in the summer is keep ourselves cool and keep our skin from getting too oily! I thought it would be fun to share with all of you a video that I made a couple years back about my skin care routine! It hasn’t changed much and I still love the way it leaves my face feeling healthy and flawless.

This regimen has all the essential antioxidants and nutrients that your skin craves. Plus each step is formulated to do its part to nourish your skin and once all the steps are combined, it will leave your skin so radiant, you won’t believe your mirror lol.

Fun Facts:

In 28 short days, and just three minutes of Enfuselle Nutrition Therapy morning and night, you’ll notice your skin looking younger – guaranteed.  Clinical studies confirmed:

  • 665% increase in skin firmness
  • 421% reduction in the appearance of wrinkles
  • 88% reduction in the appearance of fine lines

It’s time for your skin to take its vitamins.

It turns out that the same nutrients that help keep you healthy on the inside also play a huge role on how you look on the outside. So it should come as no surprise that the answer to amazing skin comes not from a cosmetics company but from the foremost natural nutrition company.

We’ve applied 50 years of scientific research to develop the most advanced therapeutic skin care system around.

With just 3 minutes of Enfuselle Nutrition Therapy morning and night, in 28 short days, you’ll see your skin age 10 years in reverse – guaranteed.

Exclusive, triple-patented Vital Repair +® Complex

  • Vitamin E provides front line antioxidant defense and creates silky smoothness.
  • Vitamin C supports the body’s natural defenses against UV-induced collagen breakdown.
  • Vitamin A increases skin’s natural moisture rentention.
  • Panthenol (pro-vitamin B5) boosts skin’s suppleness and elasticity.
  • Grape Seed Extract interrupts enzyme reactions which break down skin-firming collagen.
  • Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) neutralizes the free radicals that visibly age skin the fastest.
  • Beta Glucan soothes environmental irritation.

Elsa’s French Braid {Hair Style Video} http://www.beautyblondie.com/elsas-french-braid-hair-style-video/ Tue, 23 Jun 2015 17:34:08 +0000 http://www.beautyblondie.com/?p=3159 I know in the past I have showed you how to do a basic braid, a french braid, a braided updo and a messy bun with braids! Today I am excited to share with you how to do the Elsa braid from frozen!

I love the idea of wearing my hair in a braid for so many occasions! You can make it look more casual or elegant depending on how you style it.

Elsa's Braided Hair

I know that Elsa is all the rage for little girls and so many of them are asking their moms to do their hair like that. Well I am here to help! Here is a video showing you an easy way to braid your hair just like Elsa!

Some of you might be asking yourself, “Isn’t this just a french braid?”. The answer is yes although there are a few things that we do different here that you will have to remember when trying to get you hair to look like Elsa!

1.  Start with your hair strait, smooth and thick (Add extensions if necessary).
2. Tease the top of your hair for extra body and fullness.
3. Make sure you take big sections of hair when adding it to your braid.
4. Don’t forget to maneuver the hair to the side as you are braiding it.
5. Secure the braid with a clear elastic.
6. Loosen the braid by pulling at each little sections, starting at the bottom and working your way to the top.
7. Curl any fly-a-ways with a large curing iron.
8. Once you have the braid exactly how you like it, spray it with a long lasting hairspray.

Elsa Inspired Hair Tutorial

This style is great for anyone at any age and for any occasion! It just depends on how clean or messy you make the braid. Personally I think that it would be awesome for summer because even if it gets a little messy, it looks like it should be that way!

See moms, it isn’t as hard as you thought, was it? Do you think that you will be able to achieve this style the next time some little one asks you? Or better yet the next time you want to try it on yourself?
