I have always been a fan of actress Drew Barrymore. Maybe it’s her free spirit…or the fact that’s she’s a great actress. So, when she debuted her beauty line Flower a few year’s ago, I was really excited. I use her Kiss Stick Velvet Lip Color in ‘Get to the Poinsettia’ religiously. I’m still experimenting with some of the other products. I did get my hands on one of the mascaras. Check out this Zoom-In Ultimate Mascara review.

OK…so we’ve already established that 2015 is going to be an awesome year…right? Of course it will! Because it’s all about loving your self inside and out. And if you’re anything like me, you’re definitely into trying a few new beauty products too. When I was contacted and asked if I wanted to offer you guys a giveaway of new products from Neutrogena that will launch in 2015—I had to say yes! Read more

Yes, I am that person who deals with dry skin every winter. I’ve discussed it here before. Whenever the colder weather hits I suffer. Even though I live in Los Angeles, it still gets chilly and my skin feels it. I couldn’t imagine living in colder weather. When I’m dealing with dry winter skin, I look a little something like this.

When I was younger, I was that girl who always fell asleep with her makeup on…always. As I got older, I learned about how important it is to take off that makeup before heading to bed. Today, I not only take off my makeup, but I have a nightly beauty routine before I get those much needed zzzzzzzz’s. I not only sleep better, but I wake up with more radiant and refreshed skin. Pond’s sent me a few products to add my already existing routine and they fit in quite nicely! Read more

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
Since the crazy, mad busy, and stressful holidays are here, you’re bound to have some sleepless nights. And what comes with lack of sleep? Puffy eyes! Sorry for the reminder. I’ve been all about my eyes lately. Trying this and that, but I came across the Mary Kay Indulge Soothing Eye Gel recently and I wanted to share it with you. Read more

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you know how adamant I am about being proud of who you are. This means inside and out my loves. There are so many different things that make me who I am and being Latina is one of my favorites. I come from a long line of amazing and strong women—like my mom. Growing up, she not only inspired me to be whatever I wanted, but even today she continues to support me no matter what I do. Read more

I know I’ve said a million times how much I love colder weather. Of course, there are some downsides to it. One that I honestly can not stand is what it does to my hands. I am that person who is tortured with dry, cracking, and itchy hands in the winter. Yup, that’s me. My big ol’ paws (courtesy of my dad and I wouldn’t have it any other way) are not happy when dealing with chilly weather. I can happily say goodbye to the torture because I’ve discovered Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream and took their 7-day challenge. Read more
Are you a fan of Shea Moisture? I know there are a lot of you out there who are! I’ve heard the buzz about this brand, but I’ve never tried it. Just so you know, if you aren’t interested in soft and vibrant hair, you might as well just stop reading this post right now. I was sent a few pieces from the Shea Moisture Superfruit Complex 10-in-1 Renewal System to try out. And I can say I’m impressed with how great it works…I can’t stop touching my hair. Read more
It’s no secret that I’m not a makeup professional. I wasn’t even allowed to wear makeup until I was 17, although that didn’t stop me from wearing it at school and taking it off before I got home. My mom never showed me how to wear it and what not to do. In fact, my makeup life has been one stumbling block after another. Learning as I go. Read more
By now you’ve seen a lot of people painting their faces like sugar skulls in honor of Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). These calaveras de azúcar are sweets that are normally sold in Mexico in the days and weeks leading up to the Mexican holiday—November 1-2. Urban Decay sent me some a few of their products to help create my own simple sugar skull makeup look. Read more
