Simon & Cohen's 1st Birthday!!

... At last. My little ones first birthday has come to an end! I have been looking forward to this party since before they were born, and have basically been planning it since then too! I saw the idea of a Lorax party and absolutely fell in love with it. It was so much fun to finally get to see the ideas I had in my head come to life! Which is why I love party planning so much! 
I think I also tend to over-plan and over-do things a little bit. And when that happens, things always tend to not go so smoothly. 
The morning of their party didn't start out too swell. Cohen had a fever of 101.3 for the first 8 hours of the day and right before the party started, it finally broke! But of course, Simon then got one! (you can never win with twins!) ;) 
Once guests started to arrive and babies started getting passed from person to person, we lost track of who was where and the next thing we know, Cohen fell all the way down the hardwood stairs! Ahhh! Me and my husband were a little bit freaked out! He instantly had a black eye and bruises all over his little body. :( At this point I was thinking nothing else could possibly go wrong! 
Nothing else traumatic happened (thank goodness) and the rest of the party was SO much fun! We played games like "pin the mustache on the Lorax," "Throw marshmallows through the Brown-Bar-Ba-Loots" and we had a super fun photo booth with some props! The party favors weren't your average little take home treat bag. Instead, I made some lorax pots for everyone to "plant their own truffula tree!" 
The first little segment of pictures are the (little) details which ironically were the most time consuming on my part! I know they will never remember this party, but it's the thought that counts, right!?

The difference between Simon...

And Cohen. He wouldn't even look at his cake! haha

Cohen cried and cried so mommy had to hold him!

Good picture of Cohens shiner!

We are "One-Der-Ful!!"

What a fun day we had!! The second the guests were gone, my exhaustion kicked in and I literally fell asleep sitting down on the floor. I woke up to my husband throwing me over his shoulder like a sack of potatoes. (how romantic!) haha

Thank you to EVERYONE who came and made this a special day for our little twinners!! We have the most thoughtful family and friends!!

{"IT WORKS" Frequently Asked Questions}

How does it work?
 Everyone is born with as many fat cells as they will ever have. BUT, your fat cells can grow 1000x the size they naturally are. That is what causes us to gain weight and get that lovely cottage cheese. Cellulite is caused by fat cells bloated with toxins. The Ultimate Applicator works by tightening, toning and firming. Daily, toxins are naturally removed from the body by your stool, urine and the air you breathe out. The ingredients continue to work for 72 hours after you have applied the Ultimate Applicator, so you may continue to see progressive results over this time period.The botanical blend in our wraps penetrate the skin and enter into the deeper skin layers, getting straight to the fat cell where it releases the toxins out of them. Those toxins are then picked up by the blood stream, filtered through the kidneys and are essentially eliminated through your urine. 
All you need to do is wear the wrap for 45 minutes and drink lots of water! 
(Drinking water will flush the toxins out of your system quicker!)

What is the Ultimate Applicator?

The Ultimate Body Applicator is a non-woven cloth wrap that has been infused with a powerful, botanically-based formula to deliver maximum tightening, toning, and firming results when applied to the skin. It continuously hydrates for firmer, smoother, more youthful-looking skin and reduces the appearance of cellulite and skin slackening. See results in 45 minutes.

How Much are they?
Each wrap is $25.00. If you become a loyal customer, they are $15.00

How do you become a loyal customer?
Normally, there is a $50 sign up fee but they are waiving that fee if you commit to buying a product off their website for 3 months! They have a TON of other product like fat burners, multi-vitamins or even weight loss/protein bars! So it's not a hard thing to commit to because they have inexpensive products AND you're getting everything at the same price distributors get them for! Another thing you can do if you buy a bunch of wraps and don't want to use them all, you can sell them and make a profit!
visit my website HERE to sign up! 

Can anyone use the Ultimate Applicator?

The Ultimate Applicators are formulated for adults. They are not recommended for children. While our products are safe and effective, we do not recommend that pregnant or nursing moms use the Ultimate Body Applicator or the Chin and Neck Applicators.

How often can I use the Ultimate Applicators?
The Ultimate Applicators can be used every 72 hours and should not be used closer than that since they are continuing to work during that time.

How long should I leave the Ultimate Applicator on?
If it is your first time using an Ultimate Body Applicator, we recommend that you only leave the Applicator on for 45 minutes to test your skin sensitivity to the natural ingredients. For best results, use Defining Gel twice a day in between your Applicator uses.

Can I use more than one Applicator at a time?
We encourage you to use only one Ultimate Body Applicator wrap at a time because it will give you the most dramatic results when targeting one area at a time. The Ultimate Body Applicator targets the specific area where you have applied it and will continue to work for 72 hours.

What about for arms and legs, is it okay to wrap them at the same time?
For leg and arm applications, it is safe to either cut one Applicator in half and use half on each limb, or, if necessary, use one Ultimate Body Applicator on each limb to promote symmetry.

If I have personal medical issues, can I use The Applicators?
If you have concerns about whether or not the It Works! products are right for you, we strongly recommend that you print off the ingredients of the products you are interested in and then consult with your physician.

you can find the ingredients lists for any of our products by browsing through our Products section. Simply click on the product you are interested in, and then click on "View Ingredients" on that product's page.

Will the Applicators interfere with the medications I am currently taking?
If you have a medical concern, allergies or sensitivities, we suggest that you consult with your physician or personal pharmacist to help you answer those questions. Just print the ingredients lists by clicking on the actual product page and then click on "Ingredients". You can have your physician review the ingredients pertaining to your personal health situation.

What are the sizes of the Applicators?
Each Ultimate Body Applicator is approximately 13" X 21" and comes in a versatile shape that can be applied wherever you choose to see results, such as the stomach, sides, back, upper arms, thighs, or lower legs.

When I used the Ultimate Body Applicator, I noticed a small rash on my skin afterward. What would cause this?
Very rarely, some people develop a rash from the Ultimate Applicator. Occasionally, someone may find they have an allergy to an ingredient that could produce a rash and this is why we always encourage new customers to consult the ingredient lists before using our products. If you have a persistent rash, we recommend that you consult your physician.

How long do the results last from the Ultimate Body Applicator?
The results you see from the Ultimate Body Applicator are not temporary, as you may have experienced or heard about with many body wraps that simply cause water loss. The Ultimate Body Applicator helps tighten, tone, and firm in a manner that produces lasting results—without water loss.

As is true with any weight loss or body slimming, you can reverse the results you see from the Ultimate Body Applicator with poor eating habits and lack of exercise. This is why we say, depending on your eating habits and level of daily activity, you can expect your results to last approximately anywhere from 2 - 6 months.

Using Defining Gel daily can help you make sure that you improve and maintain your results from the Ultimate Body Applicators. Continued use of the Ultimate Body Applicators will also help you achieve continued results and maintain results you may be reversing with eating and lifestyle 

I didn't notice instant results, what went wrong?

The Ultimate Body Applicator is working to detox so, there are several questions I would have for someone who is having a difficult time losing.

1. Are you regular? If someone is not regular, there is probably a lot of gunk stuck in their system that needs to be released. The toxins that are getting stirred up have nowhere to go!

2. Do they have stretchmark’s? When someone has stretch marks the wrap works to heal the stretch marks first and the inch loss might come later.
3. How much water are you drinking? Because the toxins are getting stirred up, the water helps to flush them out of the system. If someone is dehydrated, the water they drink is absorbed as their "normal water intake" and they need to drink even more!!! They do want to drink water for 3 days after wearing the wrap.
4. Everyone's body is different. Things like pore size, toxicity level, smoking, water intake, etc. all can impact the speed at which the applicator works. Sometimes helps to open up pores with a warm wash cloth...
5. The applicator is putting GOOD nutrition into the skin. So, even if they are not losing a ton of inches right away, they typically see toning and tightening of the skin, and moisturizing of the skin
6. Is the client on any medications or have thyroid issues? Sometimes that impacts things as well as some meds make the body retain water, etc.

{"IT WORKS" body wraps}

I am THEEEE most skeptical person you'll ever meet. So when I heard you could potentially lose between 1 and a few inches in 45 minutes I laughed at the thought! I was shown pictures of before/after which made me believe it a little more but I still had to try it for myself. SO, I met up with a distributor, gave her my $25, took some pictures and measurements and then tried this puppy on.

(these photos are completely untouched)

Once I put the pictures side by side I was SHOCKED!! This looks like weeks of hard work!!
Summer is right around the corner, and I know most of you men and women would love to just tighten in certain areas! Who wouldn't love to throw on a wrap one hour before heading off to the pool and get some amazing quick results! Don't like your thighs or arms? these work on any body part!

How it works
Maybe your doubting that it's possible to loose inches or look better in 45 minutes, but there is science behind this wrap thing! 
Did you know: Everyone is born with as many fat cells as they will ever have? BUT, your fat cells can grow 1000x the size they naturally are. That is what causes us to gain weight and get that lovely cottage cheese. Cellulite is caused by fat cells bloated with toxins.

Here is a picture showing the difference between healthy and bloated fat cells

So how does this work?
 The botanical blend in our wraps penetrate the skin and enter into the deeper skin layers, getting straight to the fat cell where it releases the toxins out of them! Those toxins are then picked up by the blood stream, filtered through the kidneys and are essentially eliminated through your urine. 

All you need to do is wear the wrap for 45 minutes and drink lots of water! 
(Drinking water will flush the toxins out of your system quicker!)

How often can you wrap?
You can wrap again within 72 hours!

Is this permanent?
The results are guaranteed for 30-60 days, but they have been permanent for many customers!

Take a look at a few other stories!

The picture below is after only 6 wraps!!


Wrap: $25.00 each
($15.00 each for loyal customers!)

Wrap parties- Throw your very own wrap party and receive a $25 credit for your own wrap OR one 
of the other amazing products we have!

Wondering what a wrap party is? All you do is find some friends who would be interested in trying the wrap and we can host a little get together at your place or mine! I come in, take your measurements and wrap everyone! I then talk about what the product does while we wait for 45 minutes (Oh, and make sure there are water bottles a plenty for everyone to be guzzling during the 45 minutes!)
 Once it's time to take the wraps off, I re-measure everyone and get to see everyones excitement as they see themselves tighter and thinner!
