EcoLuxe Lounge Celebrates Emmys while raising Awareness for Big Brothers Big Sisters LA

LaLaScoop

The highlight of my time at the EcoLuxe Lounge at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills was seeing legendary actor Elliott Gould, known for his roles in M.A.S.H, Ray Donovan, Ocean’s Eleven, Twelve, and Thirteen, Friends, and more. Also, we loved spending time with the host’s new pup, who acted as a personal smile maker and perfect accessory for picture taking in the snazzy white couch lounge. The luxury retreat was created to celebrate the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Nominees and Presenters while raising awareness and funds for Big Brothers Big Sisters Los Angeles. The penthouse suite offered a massive outdoor veranda with stunning views of Los Angeles.

Glowing green Queen skin mask

Through you tube,  Pinterest, and blogs I have come across many diy face mask recipes .Some with honey,oats,green tea ect . Very rarely do I come across face masks with Spirulina . This is a super food that comes from fresh water spirulina is a sea algae with a deep green color. I could go on and on about the health and beauty benefits of this super food but for now I will save all of us some time and just touch base on the beauty benefits .Spirulina is filled with vitamin and nutrients and does an excellent job of hydrating and nourishing the skin . Spirulina also helps to speed up cell turnover . Vegetable glycerin is a natural humectant that brings moisture to the skin and also helps to soften it . Vitamin E oil acts like an antioxidant to the skin as well as reducing scars and helping with the anti aging process .

UP by Jawbone Review

images (2)1. What is it ? UP by Jawbone is a modern fitness tracking band. The Up band claims to be a system that takes a holistic approach to a healthy lifestyle. The wristband tracks your movement and sleep in the background. The app displays your data, lets you add things like meals and mood, and delivers insights that keep you moving forward. I found this information on https://jawbone.com/.

2. How does it help improve your health and lifestyle?

After using the UP band by Jawbone for one month I feel I can give my insight and an honest review. The Up band works by tracking what you do daily. When you are sleeping and when you are active it’s tracking, you can also include your mood and what you are eating. If you are like me and you have a desk job or simply a lifestyle that does does not require you to move often you will love Up by Jawbone. It gives off a gentle buzz when you are not active for a long period of time. This kind reminder often forces me to get up and get moving. I suppose you could say the band keeps you on your toes.

The band also tracks your sleep patterns, this has been very helpful for me personally, I tend to be horrible when it comes to getting quality sleep. My Up band reminds me when I need to go to bed, it also has a wonderful alarm feature that helps me wake up feeling refreshed. Imagine a friend gently nudging you every few minutes until you come out of a deep sleep, the UP band does just that

I am also very happy with the activity and calorie tracker- it is very easy to sync my band with my phone and see how many steps I have taken and how many active and none active calories I have burned.

This really helps keep me on track.

3.Given the chance would I purchase this again?

Yes UP by Jawbone has been a wonderful investment in my health and well being. Many of the ladies I work with
also use this product its fantastic!

4. How much is it and how do I purchase- The UP band can be purchased on https://jawbone.com/
They range from $79.99- $149.99 this depends on the version you would prefer. They have both wired and wireless I have the wired one and I’m very happy with it.

5. Experience – Overall I am very happy with this product, I have lost a few pounds and my quality of live has improved. I sleep much better and I find my self going the extra mile literally. You can can also share and encourage each other if your friends have an UP band.

Disclaimer- I purchased this product with my own money this is my honest review and experience. All opinions expressed are my own. I was not asked to do this review and I was not compensated or given free product for doing so.images (1)
