Fitness Friday: Healthy Ice Cream for Weight Loss?! Arctic Zero Review

Friends & Frozen Treats on a Friday!

arcticz-26

There’s a reason why we college students love Fridays so much *ahem* #icecreamfridays!

However, all that richness and creaminess does not come cheap when it comes to calories. If you are a fellow ice cream enthusiast as myself and refuse to give up your frozen treats, I have AMAZING NEWS there is an alternative, healthier option that will have you indulging without the guilt!

There’s a funny story behind receiving my Arctic Zero yummy package! I was on my way to chapel service and as I walked through the receptionist’s office I noticed a huge box that was labeled with Arctic Zero branding all over it. Immediately I knew it was for me and was a bit too excited for being 10 a.m.!  I signed for it and made my way to church with this giant UPS box! However, I had completely forgotten that because of the safety precautions I could not enter the main auditorium with my package (I was already coming up with ideas for this blog post!) Needless to say I was stopped by the security guard and long story short my box full of goodies had to be taken in to be inspected! LOL

It didn’t really help that the box was full of dry ice and subtle smoke was coming out of it! XD Thankfully, my reputation was redeemed when the guard opened it up and found nothing hazardous!

Here are some first impression quick video clips of how it all came wrapped up! The packaging though guys!! Super Impressed!

I’m sorry did you say 35 calories per serving?!

SIGN ME UP!

I was able to try all their new flavors and by far my favorite was the Poppin’ Pomegranate!

35 calories, 0 grams of fat, 5 grams of sugar, and a whole lot of yummy! I prefer the more “fruity” types of ice cream and this pint was a little tart, a little sweet and tasted the best in my opinion!

I can totally see this ice cream as an aide to help lose weight, especially for those late night cravings! Go ahead and indulge without the guilt. I did notice that you may need to leave it out longer to thaw out since it is a more solid form of ice cream. But it’s totally worth it!

Good things come to those that wait 😉 arcticz-28

I had my friends come along on this shoot with me and dress up as the 50’s! We had a blast shooting at Rocket Fizz, a retro soda pop and candy store in Lancaster! Thank you for allowing us to take over your store for an hour to shoot! Y’all are the sweetest! @Rocketfizzlancaster

 Final Thoughts?

Honestly still mind blown over here that I can freely indulge in my favorite sweets without the extra calories, fat, and sugar! I’ve tasted some low-fat ice creams that just didn’t make the cut, but Arctic Zero has made healthy eating delicious and satisfying!

Random Shopping Haul! Ross,Rue 21, H&M, Dollar Tree & Bath & Body Works!

Hello Lovelies!!

It’s Friday and everyone knows Fridays are for shopping! (& Saturday and Sunday aaaand Monday . lol)

I could not get a hold of myself this month of the amazing sales everyone is having! I mean Semi- Annual Sale Galore is happening in just about every store!

I honestly don’t even know where to begin!

IMG_2482

Let’s start off with my online orders!

So I’m always shopping off of Poshmark as you all know, and I found the cutest red and white polka dot heels!

So retro chic! They were originally listed for $30 but I offered $25 and the buyer accepted it. But I did not actually pay $25 because I had a couple of posh credits in my accounts meaning that I was only charged $14 to my card total!

IMG_2486                           I had a super happy mail day when my Cents of Style fashion tees came in the mail!

I love my ”Let it Go” graphic tee so much that I INSTANTLY bought three when they were on Jane.com!

It was so hard choosing what shirts to get but I decided on the , ”Stay Classy”,”Bless her Heart (<3)” and ”As If!”

(Excuse the wrinkles they’ve been in the mailing parcel til I wear them!)

IMG_2496                           So I was at my local mall and I always make sure to check Ross (especially on Tuesdays and Wednesdays when they add new stock) to see what new stuff they had!

*Hint hint* these next items may or may not be for you! 😉 (cough* future giveaway*)

IMG_2489

Now I love shopping in the mornings as soon as the mall opens because there is no hassle of lines,but I had to get to work! I actually returned to the mall after work when I saw everyone walking out with bath and body works bags, but not just any bags, they were the special,”Semi-Annual Sale” kind of shopping bags!

EEK! So of course I was going to stock up on yummy fragrances for myself and my home!

IMG_2478

They were also having a ”Flashback Fragrances” sale for just $3.50 each!

IMG_2479

The sale was CRAZY! I scored $22.50 3 wick candles for just $5! And oh my ! Look what I found!

Nautical Inspired Candles?!! You know I had to snatch a couple up!

IMG_2477

IMG_2497

IMG_2500

IMG_2499

Speaking about nautical I went into Icing and they were having all their necklaces on sale for just $5! So I picked up this nautical necklace with these adorable nautical charms!

The super nice girl at the store saw how anchor crazed I was and she brought out from the backroom the most amazing sandals ever!!

They were navy and white striped anchor sandals!! YASS!!!!

IMG_2487

Next stop is of course Rue 21 my go to place for dirt cheap (almost free) clothes!!

So I loved my blush tulle skirt so much that I went in and bought the black version !
I also scored these adorable patriotic sandals! (Which I’ve already worn like 5 times lol shhh dont tell!)

IMG_2493

IMG_2494

”She wore an itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polkadot.”.. cardigan?!

Hahaha yes I just had to! Plus it was really inexpensive!

IMG_2491

IMG_2492

Last but certainly not least is Dollar Tree!

Ever since I was a little kid I have had a love for shopping at Dollar Tree! (I mean come on everything’s a buck!)

So I picked up these cute anchor duct tapes!

I know you guys!!!! I have a problem!!

I ‘m not sure what exactly I’ll use them for but I’ll get back to ya!

IMG_2490

So that wraps up today’s haul!!

God Bless You!

XOXO,

The Classy Closet Series: Spring SHOE Haul!

Hello Lovelies!!

Happy Shoesday Tuesday!

IMG_1791

I am starting a new series on the blog; The Classy Closet Series!

Take a look inside my closet and my fashion finds that I’m currently loving!

This will be a very easy going and random series!! Pretty much I will be posting my opinion on fashion topics, current trends, clothing and shoe hauls, closet organization tips etc.!

Well since today is Shoesday Tuesday I decided that doing a Spring Shoe Haul would totally be fitting!

For the past couple of months I have been pretty good at my shoe impulsive buys! I just was not excited about any of the new styles on the market.

Until big shoe companies started to come out with these bad boys!

IMG_1724-0

I know right?!! Now its pretty obvious that these were inspired on the infamous Valentino Rockstud pumps!

But for a third of the price! Yes please!

I just love how these heels just add such a bold statement to any outfits! Naturally after owning one pair I needed to keep building my collection with more of these fab heels!

So as I was doing some night owl shopping on GoJane  they were having a 60% OFF sale off all shoes! Plus I had an additional 10% OFF coupon from Retail Me Not! (More savings=more shoes! )

And that very morning my goodies were on their way!

Their shipping is wicked fast! There’s nothing better than coming home to a big box of new shoes!!

IMG_1588

Totally made my day!! When I opened the box the first pair of shoes were these gorgeous black studded pumps!

I knew I had to have the black ones since they would go with every outfit and I would totally get my money’s worth! (I’ve already worn them with 4 outfits!)

IMG_1769

IMG_1768

My next pair of shoes were these Tiffany Blue/Turquoise Heels!! Aaah!!! The color is so right on for Spring/Summer!

I was kind of hesitant of purchasing them since the color is very bold and would probably be worn only around Spring, but they actually go with a lot of outfits especially for adding a fun pop pf color!

IMG_1770                          IMG_1771                           Two words: Hot Pink and Studs!

Of course I had to get them!! HAD TO!! I’ve given these shoes alot of wear already! haha! Am I the only one who beats up their shoes much too quickly?!!

IMG_1774                           IMG_1775                          I’m not sure if I should share this story because you might think I’m a bit of a compulsive shopper but here goes anyways!

I ordered the hot pink heels on Monday and received them on Wednesday morning, tried them on (more like danced around and jumped around with them lol ) and fell in love how awesome the fit was and how comfortable they are!

So I went on GoJane’s website and I pulled the trigger and bought these leopard ones all without a second thought!

I just couldn’t help it! Also I think i was pressured into buying these because it said they were the last ones in my size! (I blame it on GoJane honestly lol)

I decided on going to Rue 21 just to see what deals they had! And lo and behold I see the sign that every girl loves to see!

Um hello there 50%OFF!

IMG_1587

EEK!!! look at those floral studded flats!! Yes Yes yes!

Get in my cart!!!! lol okay I am totally freaking you guys out and I apologize! Lol

Rue 21 was having 50% Off all their clearance items!!!

IMG_1783

Mint? Floral? Studded?

Oh of course I was not going to walk out of the store without these!

IMG_1782

They were on clearance for $24 but i scored them for just $12!

I found its little sister in the flats section!! Now they didn’t have my size but I bought the next size up which will totally wok since they are closed toe.

IMG_1780                           IMG_1781                          How cute are they together?!!

You know what they say! ”If the shoe fits, buy it in every color!”

IMG_1609-0                           IMG_1790                          I hope you girls enjoyed this random shoe haul!

I’ll chat with you girlys later!

God Bless You,

XOXO,

Ashley
