It’s about to get really personal in here. I’m ready to let you go where I’ve never let anyone go before—all up in my pores. Yes, my pores! Neutrogena sent me their Pore Refining collection and I wanted to test it out. For seven days straight, I used it daily. Did my pores get smaller? Did my skin get any smoother?
I love the saying “Go big or go home.” It really is a testament to the measures we are willing to go to, to achieve what we want. You either do what you have to do, or just go home. It’s that simple. And that can pretty much go for anything in your life. But, what about your hair?
I love when an actress stands out among the crowd. One who doesn’t follow the rules of Hollywood. And doesn’t fit the mold that the entertainment industry sets out for them. Zoe Saldana is that person to me. It makes perfect sense that L’Oreal Paris would name her their newest international spokesperson.
Makeup should never be about covering things up. It should be about highlighting and celebrating the beautiful face you have. Is that a little too cheery for you on this spring day? Sorry, but I’m a in a very bright place right now— well, when it comes to my makeup I am. And thanks to some products Bobbi Brown sent me, it’s very easy to brighten things up when it comes to your makeup.
You can ask professional and celebrity makeup artist Luis Casco, I’m not a very good assistant. He’ll probably say I did a good job, only because he loves me. Truth is, I was way too distracted by his talent to even do much assisting! I was so busy taking photos and tweeting, as you’ll see below. Never mind that fact, that I can barely do my own makeup.
I will admit right off the bat that I don’t necessarily deal with sensitive skin on a daily basis. But, I know a lot of you live with sensitivity to skincare products, red patches on your skin, itchy skin, dryness, and blemishes (to name a few). And if I can offer you any relief, I will try! Simple Skincare sent me two of their latest moisturizers that were made for you and your sensitive skin.
This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Mary Kay®, People en Espanol and Latina Bloggers Connect.
Who’s officially ready for all things spring? I know my loves in the colder parts of the country are! Believe me, I feel your pain! I used to live in North Dakota and Germany, and although I enjoyed my winter, I couldn’t wait for sunny days and blooming flowers. This is the perfect season to wake things up a little. And the best way I know how is with a fresh spring makeup look, like the Mary Kay Pretty in Pastels look. And guess what? I have a giveaway valued at $300 just for you!
Normally, when I conduct a “5 Questions” interview it’s all done through email. But, with Mariela Bagnato, I actually got to interview this talented celebrity makeup artist face-to-face while I was in the Dominican Republic. I thought you should get to know a little more about her and her philosophy on beauty .
There was a time when all I could do was just sit, cry, and pray that the pimples on my face would go away. It was pimple on top of pimple. I was in my early 20’s, not a teenager! I had no idea why I was going though it. It really was a painful time. I’ve realized, in my old age, that our skin has a mind of it’s own. And even today I have skincare concerns that need addressing.
The other day, I made an announcement on Instagram stating that I was a Lubriderm Blogger Ambassador. This pretty much means that I will get the inside scoop on all things in the Lubriderm world, get to try out their latest products, then share with you! Which I’m super excited to do, since I live and die by moisturizers. Which you should all know by now. With that being said, I’m super excited to announce that I’ll be co-hosting a very special Twitter party on Wednesday 2/26!
Hello Sunshine! Yes, I’m talking to you! Can you believe that spring is almost here? Are you ready? OK, it might still be a little chilly around some parts, but that doesn’t mean you can think about it. I’m going to go ahead and do that with “Hello Sunshine” the Mary Kay limited edition spring collection they sent me.
New York Fashion Week has come and gone. Almost in an instant it seems. I was busy dealing with family issues, when BAM!—it was over. I did catch a few shows online, which was pretty awesome by the way. I’m always so inspired when I see the fashion hit the runway. And the trends just don’t stop at the clothes they’re wearing—you can’t forget the beauty side! Morgan Taylor Lacquer‘s nail team knows a thing or two about that. They were on hand (no pun intended) for a ton of shows!
