My Pantene Beautiful Lengths Experience

Disclosure: This is a sponsored and heartfelt collaboration with Pantene.

The relationship with our hair is a funny thing. We love it one minute, then we’re hating it the next—especially when it won’t do what we want it to do. In the end, it’s love that wins, because when you ask people to cut their luscious locks they’re pretty hesitant to do it. Or when someone loses it, beyond their own control, it can be devastating. That’s why I was more than happy to donate 10-inches of my own hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths on National Donate Your Hair Day (NDYHD). Read more

New Video! My Dove Hair Affair

Yesterday, Dove invited me to come out and get a little pampering at their Dove Hair Affair event. Of course I said yes! I joined them over at The Grove here in Los Angeles. I met with Dove celebrity stylist Matt Fugate, who was super sweet in between all the hustle and bustle of the event. I even had time to take a little video for a new edition of Curves and Chaos T.V. Watch below! Read more

Jergens Crema Party Recap & Giveaway

Here’s a little something you might not know about me. I’m very happy being a behind-the-scenes kind of person, but I also love to plan parties. That’s why I was pretty excited and nervous at the same time when Latina Bloggers Connect asked me to host one of their Jergens Crema Live parties.  Read more

Lucky FABB Snapshots: Day One

Lucky FABB has come and gone. Just like that. It was a whirlwind of fashion and beauty blogging at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills. I’m not going to lie, I was a little intimidated attending this conference. Yeah, I attend blogging conferences all of the time, but this was one where I knew everyone was going to look amazing!

In Photos: Mary Kay’s Beauty Bar

Hello my loves! I hope you’re having an amazing week! I wanted to share a few pictures of the Mary Kay Beauty Bar we had at the Top Latina Blogger conference in Washington D.C.  We were allowed to try on any lip liner, lipstick, and lip gloss we wanted and in any color! It was like “Hi, what can I get you today?” Lip gloss please! LOL!

I’m really impressed with their products! Especially, the Mary Kay® Creme Lipstick in Sunny Citrus. It’s my favorite right now. If you’re a Mary Kay fan, then you know what I’m talking about. Make sure you also check out their new Botanical Effects™ Skin Care line. Everyone loved their NouriShine Plus™ Lip Gloss in Mango Tango too!

Getting Red Carpet Ready with L’Oreal Paris & Giveaway!!

Who’s going to watch the Golden Globes on Sunday? We are now officially in award season and that means lots of gifting suites. I was invited to the L’Oreal Paris beauty suite inside the HBO Luxury Lounge at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills. It was a day of pampering, which I really needed. And I got to hang out with my friend Lisann, who’s in town for the weekend.

L’Oreal Paris is celebrating 40 years of beauty, so it only seemed fit that the room was designed with gold touches everywhere! My makeup was done by celebrity makeup artist April. She gave me some helpful tips while using some of L’Oreal’s hottest products. Connie gave me one of the best manicures I’ve had in a long time…Thank goodness! This is my first time trying out their nail polish, and so far so good with their new line Colour Riche. Then the funny and talented Romero styled my hair. He had us cracking up! He gave me a very Bridget Bardot-inspired hair style.

This weekend celebrities will be get all primped and pampered courtesy of L’Oreal Paris, just like me for Sunday’s award show. I can’t wait to see the red carpet and what my favorite actresses are wearing and how they’re styled.

L’Oreal Paris wants to help get you “red carpet ready” for award season, with an awesome giveaway! Find out how you can enter to win an amazing package after the photos below!

Beauty Buzz: VS Fantasies & Dinner with an Angel

Where are all my Victoria’s Secret Beauty fans? Are you in love with Secret Garden too? The smells are intoxicating… aren’t they?

Did you know your favorite fragrances of Secret Garden have been reinvented. It’s now VS Fantasies and they’ve even added five new scents.

I was lucky enough to be invited to an intimate dinner at the Chateau Marmont Hotel in Hollywood with Victoria’s Secret Angel Candace Swanepoel. Now, I didn’t know how intimate this dinner was going to be and I had never been to the legendary hotel. I had no idea what to expect.

As you can see in the pics below, it was very intimate. I met great people, had insightful conversation, and ate delicious food. I ate creme brulee for the first time!

I did get the Sheer love collection and I can honestly tell you it smells sweet and sexy, without being too overbearing. I have a sensitive nose when it comes to fragrances and this is delish! I’m dying over over the body butter!! Stay tuned…I have the entire collection you’ll be able to win soon!

And as for my dress, I bought it from my friend Crystal Rene at Haute CurVture. It was comfy and long! Just the way I like my maxi dresses. xoxo
