How to Pull off a Natural Makeup Look when Pushing 50
October 31, 2019

I received Giorgio Armani Beauty products to facilitate this article.  However, all opinions are my own. Ah, that big scary number "50" is no longer scary to me. These days 50 is the new 35ish.  I loved Giorgio Armani Beauty when I was 35 years-old and I love it now that I am 47 years-old. I'm not afraid of 50! But I am a firm believer that every woman over 40 should wear Giorgio Armani Beauty.  Because, let's face it; that youthful glow we took advantage of when we were younger slips away as we age.  It's just part of the process.  We can do all the masks and peels but in the end Giorgio Armani's signature "Armani Glow" brings it back.  For good. I am …

Back to School Beauty Essentials for Mommies
August 29, 2019

Written by Emily McDaniel Alright Mommies… So, I am not sure about you all, but we are a few weeks into school and I’m feeling a tad overwhelmed. The new schedule, homework, the food prep, and just getting used to being on the go 24/7 is making me feel crazy. So, I decided to take some time for myself… minimal time that is and practice a little self-care. I’ve always been into skin care so I decided to try a new exfoliator and a seaweed mask. As I was doing that; I noticed how yellow my teeth were so I couldn’t wait to try this amazing teeth whitener. And to top it off it’s been 110° here in Phoenix so I’ve decided to give a new deodorant …

BALLSY Premiers a "Keep Your Tools Clean" Box for Father's Day
June 6, 2019

So, this year I did not come up with a gift guide for dads.  I did, however come up with a DIY Father's Day Crafts post. That's the best I could do with 5 and 7 year-old boys.  At this point there's only so much fragrance, tool sets and BBQ paraphernalia you can give a man.  My father and my husband have everything they need.  We are down to giving hats for Father's Day. It's hot here in Arizona and we are hiding inside! You can always do with a hat. Right? Right......But, I found the most practical and hilarious gift to give them this year.  It will be a game changer and a great dinner conversation starter. How about a gift that sends a clear message? …

How to Get Rid of Grey Roots in 2 Seconds
April 18, 2019

This post was sponsored by Gray Away as part of an Influencer Activation and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. When did your hair start turning grey? I just turned 48 years-old and I have terrible grey roots.  But the truth is that I inherited my ashy grey roots from my Greek father many years ago; about 25 years-old.  He was fully grey at around the same age as me. So, I have had to battle with grey hair for many years until I found Gray Away.   My poor hair has been dyed and fried from all the salon appointments.  Recently,  I decided I was not going to put my hair through this anymore and letting my hair grow out a little would …

Why Christian Dior Lip Maximizer is the Best Lip Plumper on the Market
February 24, 2019

This post has affiliate links, however, all opinions are my own. Hello my name is Lucee and I'm a plumpaholic.  I am powerless over plumpers.  I can't stop. When I worked at the "store that takes back everything," customers would ask me what I was wearing on my lips. So I would sell them four items because a) that's what I was wearing and b) I was a great sales person.  But the Dior Lip Maximizer (collagen active lip-gloss) was the most important product. You see, along with the lip liner, the lipstick, and the gloss the Maximizer played a key role in the look of my fabulous lips.  It plumped out the little creases and made them look smooth and plump which also gave …

2 Weeks to Better Skin for the New Year
December 7, 2018

This is a Sponsored Post for Influence Central.  All opinions are my own. I love this time of year!  I'm one of the few people that don't mind the drop in temperature.  This kind of drop in temperature is never too big in Florida or Arizona!  Bring it on. As the weather changes, my skin feels drier.  That's the only downfall.  Dry skin is not a friend of women like me with mature skin.  So, not only do I have to worry about hydration, I have to think about antiaging.  Luckily, there is help out there. Have you ever been given a challenge to see if you could see changes over a period of time?  I just started challenging myself to lose some weight.  I want to start …

5 Ways to Create the Spa Experience in Your Bathtub
October 18, 2018

This post was sponsored by Neutrogena as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. Boy, has it been a long time since I went to a spa.  Seriously, I think we can all agree that most of us moms get to go to a spa either on vacation or when it's Mother's Day.  I still haven't redeemed my Mother's Day spa gift certificate from four years ago!  There's never enough time in the day.  There are lunches to be packed, laundry to be done, dinner to be made, pick-ups, drop-offs and the list goes on.  Oh yes, and work. But I am no stranger to creating the spa experience at home.  If I can't get to …

L’Oreal Pure-Sugar Scrubs at Walmart
October 17, 2018

This post was sponsored by L’Oreal Paris as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. I am an exfoliating pro.  I exfoliate at least three times a week.  It's so important to slough away those dead skin cells. It helps allow the other products you put on your skin to work better, like serums and oils. It allows them to get deeper into the skin and do what they are meant to do instead of sitting on top of dead skin. When looking for a skin scrub, I like to find something natural that is not abrasive on the skin. At least once a week I try to do something that unclogs my pores, like …
