Get Motivated Through Music with Best Buy and yurbuds!

 **The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free**

It's a new year with new goals, challenges, and resolutions. This year, my resolution has been to #GetMotivated, eat healthier, and take my health more seriously. By cutting out gluten and dairy from my diet as well as taking over 10,000 steps a day, I plan on keeping my resolution and reaching my goals. I use my Fitbit to track my steps throughout the day and while I'm on the treadmill. My Fitbit allows me to keep track of how many steps I've taken while counting calories burned. At the end of the day, I just sync my Fitbit up to my computer/online app and check out my results. The online app allows me to see my progress, what I need to work on, connect with other friends, and journal my struggles, food intake, and goals. So far this year, I've lost 8 pounds by sticking to this regimen.

Getting motivated and staying that way would be next to impossible if I didn't have some great upbeat tunes to keep me going. Studies have shown that music can increase the intensity and duration of a workout by as much as 15%. Unfortunately, most of us miss out on those benefits because our earphones hurt and fall out during workouts. I've never had a problem with painful earphones but I always have issues with earphones that stay in place, have good sound quality, and don't get tangled up in everything. Nothing stinks more than a pair of earphones that fall out, cut out, or get tangled during a treadmill workout! 

Keep those earphones in and cut cords with the Inspire Limited Edition Wireless Sport Earphones by yurbuds. These Stereo-Bluetooth earphones lock in place comfortably so they don't hurt and never fall out. The 15mm drivers provide the biggest and best sound available, providing the motivation you need to #neverstop. yurbud's sweat and water resistant earphones feature full track and call control with a wind-blocking microphone designed for call clarity. The athlete tested battery lasts up to 6 hours and provides visual and audible indicators when running low. This is quality sound with no strings attached!

Herbal Essence Naked Volume Collection

**I received this item for the purpose of a review. I was in no way compensated for my opinion as they are my own. Your opinion may vary from mine.**

Herbal Essence has a new collection out called the Naked Collection Volume. Obviously I was intrigued by this because naked to me means no crazy chemicals and my hair loves products like those. I used to have very thick and healthy hair but it has thinned out dramatically since I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease over 5 years ago. Nowadays, my hair is very picky about the products I use. I wouldn't say it's damaged, it actually looks and feels pretty healthy, but it goes flat and becomes greasy quick because of how thin it is. Because of the autoimmune disease I have, I like to watch what kind of chemicals my body comes in contact with. Anything is mess up the balance in a compromised immune system. Needless to say, I was excited to learn more about the Naked Volume Collection by Herbal Essence. 

The naked Naked Volume Collection by Herbal Essence can be purchased as a kit straight through Walmart.com for $12.99. This Limited Edition Naked Collection Volume Kit comes fully stocked with Naked Volume Shampoo, Conditioner, Volumizing Soufflé Styler, and Dry Shampoo. Everything you need to achieve amazing volume can be found right here!

The Naked Volume Collection Shampoo and Conditioner by Herbal Essence is made with ZERO dyes, parabens, and heavy residues which when combined, helps to restore the hair's natural body. This light-weight shampoo provides the perfect balance of clean hair and an exquisite bounce while the Conditioner helps to keep hair nourished and detangled while maintaining full volume. The scent of the Naked Volume Collection Shampoo and Conditioner is described as grapefruit and mint but I think they make my hair smell like Sweet Tarts. I've never smelled a shampoo like this and I absolutely love it! The scent combined with the way the Naked Volume Collection Shampoo and Conditioner leaves my hair feeling, makes me feel fabulous.
The Naked Volume Dry Shampoo by Herbal Essence is made from a natural tapioca formula that helps to absorb excess oils while transforming lifeless, oily hair into fresh, clean hair. 
this Naked Volume Dry Shampoo is perfect for days when you don't have time to wash your hair. It even works great on hair that has been washed daily to refresh oily hair that has been exposed to dirtier or more humid conditions. I actually love to use the Naked Volume Dry Shampoo half way through the day to help absorb oils that normally would make my hair look greasy by the end of the day. It works great! The Naked Volume Dry Shampoo's scent has the perfect combination of citrus and mint which leaves your hair smelling freshly washed and fantastic! To use the Naked Volume Dry Shampoo, just gently spray and work into roots then brush out; Simple as that!

The Naked Volume Collection Volumizing Soufflé by Herbal Essence is a weightless volumizing styler that gives you a full lift meant to last, and it does just that. The Volumizing Soufflé has the same scent of the Shampoo and Conditioner and is very easy to use. All you need to do it gently work the Naked Volumizing Soufflé mousse through your wet hair and style as normal. 

The Naked Volume Collection by Herbal Essence has left my hair feeling soft, healthy, and clean. I will be recommending it to all of my friends and to you, my readers. The purchase the Naked Volume Collection Kit by Herbal Essence for $12.99, just follow this link to Walmart.com. Hurry though, supplies are limited!
