This year, I am focusing on health, beauty, and getting my shit together. I feel that 2016 is a year of new adventures, new goals and, of course, a New Me. I compiled a list of my favorite product that I actually use. Each item is helping me to bring in the New Year right. Join me on my picks to start off 2016 with a New You! 

So without further ado, Here is Heavy on Fashion Presents: New Year New You 2016! 


Lush Cosmetics

Heavy on Fashion New Year New You 2016: Lush Cosmetics

Thanks to the lovelies at Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics, I had the chance to check out all these fabulous lifestyle products.You can not start off the New Year without some great cosmetics.  Lush Cosmetics is full of great products that are 100% Vegetarian, uses the least amount of packaging a.k.a Naked, Handmade, and buys may of the ingredients Ethical.

Fantasy is gold  eyeliner. Super pigment color and easy to use. I also love that Fantasy is quick dry, glittery, and does not smudge. I will be The Fantasy eyeliner cost $19.95 which is a great price for a Vegan eyeliner.

The Rough with the Smooth is a great body scrub. Made with granulated sugar and murumuru butter, The Rough with the Smooth is a great exfoliate. Though you can use it every day, because of it gentle nature, I would suggest using this twice a week. The Rough with the Smooth cost $9.95

Feeling Younger Skin Tint is shimmer skin tint. I love skin tints, especially in the winter. It adds a great luster to the skin in cold dry weather. The texture is super smooth. The jar is only 0.7 oz but you do not need much to achieve the illuminating look. Feeling Younger Skin Tint cost $19.95

Shades of Earl Grey is a massage bar and one of my favorite items to use during my self-care day. The Shades of Earl Grey smells great. The combination of lemon oil and bergamot is  so relaxing. Great for distressing from a long day. Shades of Earl Grey cost $10.95

I love a good Bath Bomb, especially from Lush. The Yoga Bomb Bath Bomb is a must for a relaxing bath time. The relaxing scents of sandalwood is another most for my self-care day. If you never experienced a Lush Bath Bomb, I would say pick up the Yoga Bah Bomb as your introduction into a  spa-like life. The Yoga Bath Bomb cost $8.95

The Cup O' Coffee Face & Body scrub is a true pick-me-up for the face. I have to say it woke my pores. The Cup of Coffee is made of organic agave syrup, ground coffee and tons more. The smell is truly of a fresh cup of Joe. This facial scrub is a morning wake-up call. Cup O' Coffee Face & Body scrub  cost $10.95

Buffy Body Butter is great for every day. Though it is considered a body butter, I would describe it as a nice marriage of an exfoliate meets a soap with a dash of a body butter. Yeah, the Buffy Body Butter is a trifecta of beauty products for the shower. The Buffy Body Butter cost $23.95

Lather AHA Hand Creme Evening Primrose

Heavy on Fashion New Year New You 2016: Lather AHA hand creme

Lather AHA Hand creme with evening primrose is a stable in my night beauty routine. I love the texture and the smell is minimum, which is a plus for me. My hands have a tendency to become dry a.k.a ashy, at the end of the day. With just a small amount, about a size of a quarter will have my hands moisturized and feeling fabulous. I keep my jar of Lather on my nightstand. It is one of the best hand I have used. My only request is that Lather would make a travel version. This creme can be used during the day and at night.

Hungry for Change

Heavy on Fashion New Year New You 2016 - Hungry for Change

Losing weight is the #1 New Years Resolutions one everyone's mind. I decided to change my view to change my eating habits instead of losing weight. Health is my goal not just for the year but also for life. I had the chance to really learn about food at The Seed and receiving this DVD in my goodie Bag. Hungry for Change is an eye-opening look at the food industry, how we should look at food, and looking at the power of food in society. This DVD is so good my hubby reviewed it on his blog BodyByIan as well. If you are really interested in changing your life for the better, pick up Hungry for Change at

The Modern Girl's Guide to Life

Heavy on Fashion New Year New You 2016: The Modern Girl's Guide to Life

I love books so when I was asked to review The Modern Girl's Guide To Life, I had to add this to my New Year New You. The Modern Girl's Guide To Life is a huge "getting your life together" guide. It covers everything from cooking (which I can not do, Thank goodness for my husband) to getting your career/business goals in check. This book is full of almost everything you need to know to survive this little game called life. I believe that getting good advice from someone who been through it, well Jane Buckingham is that person. This book is a great reference guide to life. Seriously, I am still reading it and finding some serious jewels of knowledge. Some points I already knew but I did receive some great tips as well.
