The Recap: Oxie Affordable Optical

I have always worn glasses (Since about 1st grade) and I always loved going to pick out new ones! That hasn’t changed AT ALL!

Which one do you think I picked?

I had the opportunity to pop into Oxie Affordable Optical and get my yearly eye exam and pick out some beautiful new glasses! Following all Covid-19 procedures I called when I arrived and was let into the very cute and cozy store!( Masks on of course)

Checking in

I was greeted by Mia, who is one of the owners and super sweet! She took me through the whole process and it was super quick! After getting my paperwork filled out, I went to get a test done to see where my eyesight was at the moment.

Once that was done it was time to go into my eye Exam with Dr. McGee! He got me together! ( I can’t see anything without my glasses lol) A few laughs and some jokes later, my eye exam was done.

Drops being added to my eye for the pressure test!

Next up was the part I love,picking out my glasses!

I am so happy with my selections ( I got them both,yay) and I was glad to be able to get a new fresh look!

Mia was so helpful with pointing me in the right direction of which frames complimented my face and the different options for lenses! ( They even have Bluelight options!)

Oxie Affordable Optical is located in Downtown Aurora and if you are in the area stop in. If you do tell them I sent you!

Traffic Secrets: 30 Day Challenge

This is a sponsored post by Arella on behalf of Traffic Secrets: The Underground Playbook for Filling Your Websites and Funnels with Your Dream Customers

Recently I started a 30 day challenge with Russell Brunson’s book, Traffic secrets! At first I wasn’t sure how this book would apply to me as I am a Social Media Creative! I do blogging, social media management etc.

As I’ve gotten to explore, read and apply the book on the challenge I’ve learned so much information about myself, my business and what is missing. This quote by Russell Brunson (He is the mastermind behind it all) really explained it well!

“The biggest problem that most entrepreneurs have isn’t creating an amazing product or service; it’s getting their future customers to discover that they even exist. Every year, tens of thousands of businesses start and fail because the entrepreneurs don’t understand this one essential skill: the art and science of getting consumers to find you.”

This is it! ( I see this all the time) How many people know someone with a good product or service but they don’t have the right exposure and they aren’t reaching their full potential?! This is where Traffic Secrets lays it all out and breaks down what is most important! I realized that not only do I need to dig deeper but I need to focus and zone in on bringing more traffic to my site and business!

“In his new book Traffic Secrets: The Underground Playbook for Filling Your Websites and Funnels with Your Dream Customers, entrepreneur Russell Brunson reveals the classic and foundational direct marketing techniques that will allow you to be at the front of new trends and see opportunities that are invisible to everyone else. Russell can share how to master evergreen traffic strategies in order to fill your website and funnels with your dream customers.”

So far I’ve learned who my Dream 100 is and how this will be my foundation for everything else that I need to do to grow!

You all can follow along on Instagram for all my updates as I complete the 30 day Traffic Secrets challenge below! If you want to also go check out the book for yourself do so here!

Always Eat After 7pm Week 4

This post is brought to you by our sponsor, “Always Eat After 7 PM”. The opinions expressed below are my own.

Omg guys! This is my final update!

I can’t believe it’s gone by so fast. If you are new here check out my 3 previous posts about my journey with Always Eat After 7pm!

“Joel Marion’s Always Eat After 7PM program makes dieting easy and eliminates 90% of reasons for resistance.” This is HALF the battle and why this was so easy to stick with!

See how the whole 4 weeks went here,Post 1,Post 2, Post 3

I can’t believe a month has come and gone! I’m so happy that I was able to take part in this plan and learn so  much more not only about myself but also food and how you can truly eat after 7pm! When I started this I was very unsure because we always hear all these myths about trying out diets or plans. My goals all along were to create healthier habits and curate a routine of eating! 

Following the guidelines  has given me better eating habits by having me  eat more of the RIGHT foods at the right time.  One of my favorite tools that Joel lays out for you is the morning routine!

Egg Muffins were bomb, and a life saver for on the go days!

“One of the simplest 3-Minute Fat-Burning Morning Rituals, lemon water is a glass of water mixed with the juice of one half of a lemon. This drink provides all the benefits of regular drinking water, which supports weight loss, digestive health, physical performance, and cognitive function.”

Following the schedule that was displayed throughout the plan has been good for overall success even after this plan. I now can plan out my meals and can really tackle my to do list knowing one less thing I have to do!

 I’m really excited to take all the gems I’ve gotten from this challenge and book into my next phase of healthy habits! Did you grab your copy yet? What are you waiting on?  To learn more about the book and where to purchase,click here.

Always Eat After 7pm Week 3

This post is brought to you by our sponsor, “Always Eat After 7 PM”. The opinions expressed below are my own.

Hey guys! If you all have been keeping up with the latest challenge I am back with an update!( I’m so excited)   If you missed out, don’t worry you can always catch up! Here are posts 1 and 2.

 I stated in my first post that my goal from this whole thing was to get back on my healthy habits and curate a routine for myself!  I’ve for sure accomplished that. I have a new routine of eating and I am eating after 7pm, which I told you guys is usually when I am up a lot of the nights as a creative! 

The awesome thing about “Always Eat After 7 PM” by Joel Marion is that while this is a lifestyle change it’s very easy to follow with all of the meal planning as well as  the recipes!  ( The No bake Salted Caramel bars are sooo sooo good) 

Yummy!

I also liked that my eating isn’t aligned with the everyday way of eating. “Going without breakfast is part of intermittent fasting (IF), also called time-restricted feeding (TRF). IF is a pattern of food consumption that cycles between fasting and eating in specific time periods. There are various ways to do it; one of the most common is the 16/8 protocol, which involves 16 hours of fasting—typically done overnight—with an 8-hour window in which to eat each day.”

This has  for sure helped me keep my weight controlled and since I’m only eating the foods laid out in the book, I can see a difference in my overall feeling. I’m more aware of net garbs, good fats and how each type of food controls my hormones.  I’ve also liked how the book gives options for going out to eat because they know that at some point we will still take part in the social gatherings and outings we love! 

Fat Burning Drink!

“The most challenging times to curb hunger are just before bed and in the morning. By following the Always Eat After 7PM program, you have the most willpower to stay on the diet because you are eating during the hours when you are most hungry. This also puts you into both intermittent fasting increasing testosterone and your metabolism, while putting you into ketosis.”  Learn more about the book and how to purchase here.
