Fitness Friday-10/12

Well I just realized I totally missed out on writing a post last Friday. I have been so busy with work, the family, and events. I did run the Race for the Cure 5k last Saturday and I was very proud of myself for crossing that finish line in a reasonable amount of time. I am on my 12th day of Paleo today was my second weigh in and I was exactly the same as last week's weigh in (4lbs down) however I did lose in inches so I am happy with that. I also feel wonderful my stomach has gone down quite a bit. No more feeling bloated or over stuffed after a meal.

Beauty COVERage by COVERGIRL - Taylor Swift

 



 

Taylor wanted her VMA makeup look to be inspired by her new CD, Red, and by the sophistication of the sleek ivory suit she wore on the red carpet. We knew that a strong red lip color would be perfect for the evening, but also wanted her eyes to stand out with bold liner.

Beauty COVERage by COVERGIRL - P!nk



Pink's choice for her red carpet dress went wonderfully with what I had in mind for her beauty look, which was creating soft metallic depth around the eyes and keeping the rest of her face soft, glowing and bronzed. Since we only had a short amount of time for a makeup change for her performance look, we both loved the idea of a red carpet look that I could quickly transform in one or two steps.

    Tuesday, August 14, 2012 — HUNT VALLEY, MD —The COVERGIRL brand believes in helping women tap into what's uniquely special about them and working it with confidence – celebrating a style that only they can rock. So it’s fitting that the beauty brand that’s all about “doing you” authentically is partnering with Janelle Monáe for an exciting new chapter of her life journey. The celebrated artist, once called a “different kind of diva” byVogue, just wrapped her first COVERGIRL advertising shoot, which is scheduled todebut in the September issue of that publication next week. Monáe, who is already a renowned style icon with her signature black-tie wardrobe and striking hairstyle known as a "Monae," becomes the newest COVERGIRL today, and she is on a unique mission to encourage women to use all their artistic powers to play, change, and transform.
    “I believe it’s time that women truly owned their superpowers and used their beauty and strength to change the world around them,” saidMonáe. “One of my core values is to help redefine what it means to be a strong and beautiful woman in the music and fashion worlds and to empower the wonderful things that make us unique. Becoming a COVERGIRL is truly an honor and a gift: it opens up a new platform for me to inspire women to feel stronger, braver and more beautiful inside and out.”

    Janelle Monáe has been widely lauded by the music industry for her energetic performances, dynamic voice, genre-bending artistic sensibility, and visionary approach to songwriting. Monáe’s debut concept album “The ArchAndroid” was released to widespread acclaim.

In addition to these accolades, Janelle Monáe was a recipient of the 2011 ASCAP Vanguard Award and included in the first-ever Women Who Rock exhibit in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year.

    Most recently, she made a guest vocal appearance on the hit song, “We Are Young” with the band Fun.

    ABOUT THE FILM
    Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the evil Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing government intimidation tactic, The Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains.
    Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
    THE HUNGER GAMES DVD releases Saturday, August 18

These baby bows are great for little ones like my daughter who has some hair but it is fine. I don't even have to use the head band so she is a happy baby.

    DOC MCSTUFFINS


    PRESCRIPTION FILLED FOR SECOND SEASON OF DISNEY JUNIOR'S HIT
    "DOC MCSTUFFINS," 2012 TO-DATE'S #1 CABLE TV SERIES AMONG KIDS 2-5

    The doctor is in -- "Doc McStuffins," TV's newest hit for kids age 2-7, has been ordered for a second season on both Disney Junior, the daily programming block that posted Disney Channel’s best fiscal second quarter ratings ever in the daypart, and the burgeoning 24 hour Disney Junior channel. The channel is available to Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Cablevision, Bright House Networks and Verizon subscribers and soon, via additional affiliates nationwide. The announcement was made today by Nancy Kanter, Senior Vice President, Original Programming and General Manager, Disney Junior Worldwide.
    The animated series about Doc, a little girl who can talk to and heal stuffed animals and toys out of her playhouse clinic, is 2012 to-date's #1 cable series among Kids 2-5 and the #1 preschool cable TV series among Total Viewers and Women 18-49. Its March premiere is the #1 preschool series launch in cable TV history among Adults 18-49. "Doc McStuffins" joins Disney Junior's other hit series "Jake and the Never Land Pirates" and "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse" which accounted for the Top 3 preschool cable telecasts of the quarter among Women 18-49.
    Based on parents feedback and retail demand, Disney will introduce "Doc McStuffins" books, apparel, party goods and role play toys, dolls and accessories, beginning this summer through early 2013, its quickest to market launch ever for a preschool property. A "Doc McStuffins" DVD will release on August 21.
    Kanter said, "The series is resonating with boys and girls across our demo kids ages 2-7. And we've heard that the show, particularly as parents watch with their kids, has opened up a family dialogue about the importance of good health and compassion. Importantly, we are also hearing that the show is helping to take the worry out of going to the doctor that so many young children experience. We are delighted that kids will now be able to extend their love of Doc and her toy friends beyond the screen and encourage their inherent, nurturing play patterns."
    Created and executive-produced by Humanitas Prize and Emmy Award-winning Chris Nee (writer on "Little Bill" and producer of "Deadliest Catch: Crab Fishing in Alaska") and directed by Emmy-winning Norton Virgien ("Rugrats"), "Doc McStuffins" is a production of Academy Award nominated Brown Bag Films in association with Disney Channel. The Hollywood Health & Society division of the USC Annenberg Norman Lear Center serves as the series' health and medical consultants, advising on basic health issues that are relevant to young kids and families. The series carries a TV-Y parental guideline.
    "Doc McStuffins" airs daily during the Disney Junior programming block on Disney Channel and on the 24-hour Disney Junior channel. The series stars Kiara Muhammad as Doc; Loretta Devine as Hallie; Lara Jill Miller as Lambie; Robbie Rist as Stuffy; Jess Harnell as Chilly; Jaden Betts as Donny McStuffins; Kim Brooks as Mom McStuffins; and Gary Anthony Williams as Dad McStuffins. The series' theme song is performed by the star of Disney Channel's hit series "A.N.T. Farm" and Hollywood Records recording artist, China Anne McClain.
    Disney Junior reflects the emotional connection generations of consumers have to Disney storytelling and Disney characters, both classic and contemporary. It invites mom and dad to join their child in the Disney experience of magical, musical and heartfelt stories and characters, while incorporating specific learning and development themes designed for kids age 2-7. Disney Junior’s series blend Disney’s unparalleled storytelling and characters kids love deeply with learning, including early math, language skills, healthy eating and lifestyles, and social skills. Disney Junior launched in February 2011 with a daily programming block on Disney Channel. In its first year, Disney Junior posted the network's biggest yearly audience in the daypart in Total Viewers, Kids 2-5, Boys 2-5 and Women 18-49, increasing by double-digit margins among preschooler demographics over year-ago levels. On March 23, 2012 Disney Junior added a cable and satellite channel in the U.S. bringing the total number of channels to 30 worldwide.
