It’s time for a #sweatyselfie post Body Beast! I did not feel like working out today for some reason, but I knew my challenge group was counting on me, so I did Beast Cardio & Beast Abs anyway! So glad I did! πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ Did you know if you post a #sweatyselfie (using that hashtag) and tag @beachbodyhq, you could win a prize pack including the 3-Day Refresh (how I lost 6.5lbs in 3 days - bye bye bloat!), Shakeology, a workout program, & recovery formula?! Yes, please! XOXO, Mandie

About a month and a half ago, I did makeup for a photoshoot in an incredible mansion near my house - about a half mile away. It was AMAZING. I did hair and makeup for two models, and then modeled myself. It was for the portfolios of the models, as well as a vintage clothier and wardrobe stylist here in Milwaukee. The house had TONS of outrageous authentic art pieces and was impeccably decorated. Here are the first few shots! The model was Nancy Matteson. Photographer was James Conway, and wardrobe was by Heidi Calaway. As I said, I did hair and makeup. More images coming soon!Β

My quest to do a selfie with everyone I do hair and makeup on for photoshoots has about a 42% success rate. Yesterday, I upped it to 50%.  Aren’t they gorgeous? Well, except for the creepy joker… Looking forward to two more days of shooting this Thursday and Friday, though I doubt it will be this glamorous! πŸ˜‰ (at Milwaukee Athletic Club)

This… SO much this. I feel like I am STILL figuring out who I am, and coming to terms with it. People older than me - does it ever stop, or are we always learning about ourselves? xoxo,Mandie

Remember back in January when I was a @bexnewyork  Bex Kitten (Click on that link & scroll down if you don’t)? Well, I am so proud of Bex, because Beyonce’s dancers were wearing her bras at the VMAs on Sunday! She’s going places! Love it! xoxo, Mandie

I seriously began posting this like ten hours ago, but then models started showing up at my shoot and I didn’t have time to get back to it! πŸ’œπŸ’œ What was the highlight of your weekend? I would have to say that highlights for me were a sweet message from one of my challengers, spending time with friends I rarely see, and giving @kdbridges her birthday gift! πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ It’s funny, because I wanted to explain to her that the sparkly headbands on top of her wine 🍷 bottle were for her to wear while doing Turbo, and that the purple bobby pins were to have her favorite color involved, so I asked her to open the gift before I left, but she understood perfectly without my explanation - it happened in a very “you had to be there” hilarious way! Looking forward to a great & busy week! I’ll show some pics from today’s shoot tomorrow!  (at Ugly’s)

Want a few great exercises you can do in just a few minutes a day to work on that booty or your tummy? These are great, and they are parts of many of the Beachbody programs I do or have done. =) xoxo, Mandie

If I had to pick one that I think might be holding me back, it’d be #4. Everything needs to be PERFECT before I can start a project! I need to get moving, and stop planning! What about you? xoxo, MandieP.S. Project in the works, obviously.
