HOW I HANDLE AGING IN MY 30’s

Hi! I wanted to get candid about being in my 30’s and how I feel about aging, taking care of my skin, and how to stay looking young. I don’t do many posts like this because my beauty and skin routine has always been pretty minimal and simple. I have said on here and on Instagram that I have never gotten any plastic surgery, or have anything fake- even down to my hair and nails. I of course have no issues and there is no judgment whatsoever for those who have done those things. Whatever empowers and makes you feel beautiful I think is a good thing, as long as you are doing it for yourself and no one else I fully support it. I always said I want to age gracefully, and never want to alter or change the way God made me, and I still intend to do that. I remember in my 20’s my friends would look at me crazy for never doing botox and I always said I would wait until …

SKINCARE ROUTINE WITH JOANNA VARGAS

Along with my exercise, makeup, and hair routine,  I get asked about my skincare routine just as much, if not more than anything else. A lot of my followers know I don’t wear much makeup, if any at all, so having good skin is really important to me. I’ve been blessed to never have gotten pimples or acne in my life- nor do I have any sun spots or blemishes on my face. I’ve always kept my skin care routine simple. I make sure to wash my face and moisturize every night, and in the morning I lightly rinse my face and moisturize with SPF usually. I’ve previously blogged about my daily skincare routine using a few of my favorite products, and I wanted to share what I’ve been using recently. I’ve been using Joanna Vargas skincare products for the past couple months and have been really liking them. I am on a one month long trip in Europe at the moment and brought her products along with me to continue my at-home daily skincare routine. Below …

MY SKINCARE ROUTINE- SKIN CEUTICALS

With all the traveling I do, I am constantly in the sun, on airplanes and pretty much have 24/7 jetlag-it’s not the most ideal for my skin, and it definitely takes a wear and tear. Fortunately up until this point, I have been extremely lucky to have had great skin- I’ve never had pimples or break outs in my life, and barely any sunspots, lines or wrinkles (thank you mom & dad), but I realized it’s time now to start taking it seriously and take care of my skin before it’s too late. Aging is a b*tch! When I got invited to an event recently held by SkinCeuticals, I was excited to attend and learn about their skin care products. People have always asked me my skin routine and what products I use, and I never had the answers because I honestly never did anything but soap and water. Attending this brunch was life changing for my skin- it was the first step in inspiring my new skin routine and now I can proudly say …

BEAUTY OBSESSION: SALLY HANSEN AIRBRUSH LEGS

I had a huge shoot recently for something really exciting. (Can’t wait to show you guys what its for!). I have been working really hard preparing for it and wanted to feel my best. I discovered the Priv app where you can book beauty services straight to your door which is super convenient for me because I hate driving around to a million appointments on the day of a photoshoot. I wanted to have a tan and glowy look for my shoot, so decided to try out the Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs spray to give me an even golden glow. I booked someone to come to my house and airbrush my legs with the new Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs spray. I am obsessed with this product. It covers any imperfections such as bruises, veins, cellulite, scars, etc. and gives you a natural golden tan. It’s not sticky or thick either- it’s light and dries quickly leaving your skin feeling soft and smooth. It’s been hard to find body makeup products that match my exact skin tone, and …

2015 SAG AWARDS RED CARPET

Hey everyone! Wanted to share my favorite looks from the SAG Awards last night. I was kind of underwhelmed by the carpet- there was no one that really “WOW’ED” me. Everyone played it safe and looked nice, but nothing was exciting. I liked Julianne Moore’s emerald gown. I love emerald green on a red head lol- it looked exquisite on her. The beading in person looked so rich and beautiful, pictures didn’t do it justice. I also thought Emma Stone nailed it, which she always does. I absolutely love the menswear look on a woman. She is so fashion forward and kills it every time. Felicity Jones, (who happens to be my obsession right now), wore a soft pink Balenciaga gown and looked stunning. What are your thoughts on the SAG looks? Do you agree with my favorites?
