Starting the New Year off with a Full Years Resolution to Live Well
December 28, 2017

The New Year is coming. and I've been thinking about change.  I have many exciting changes ahead of me this year, including a big move to Arizona.  With that said, I need to be aware of my wellbeing.  Moving can be stressful.  I've sort of let myself go at the end of this year for many reasons.  I find myself grabbing a bag of chips for a snack rather than my usual granola and yogurt.  Or I forget to remove my makeup at night.  I've cut down on getting my pedicures because I'm working too much.  I still have a gift card that my husband bought for me three years ago on Mother's Day for Massage Envy.  I've cut down on my water intake.  …

My Top 5 Cruelty Free and Vegan Beauty Products
October 2, 2017

Lately, I have seen so much interest in vegan and cruelty free products.  There are so many products out there that have harsh chemicals, that are right under our noses. When I was younger, ignorance was bliss and I indulged in many things that were not good for me. It's not hard to lure someone in with non-toxic ingredients. Who wouldn't want to put something completely free of chemicals and toxins on their skin? Of course no one would deliberately buy makeup that was tested on animals, but are they really aware of what they are buying and what they are inadvertently supporting.  I worked in the cosmetics industry for 10 years, and I tell you that just because it is cruelty free does not mean …

Glow Beyond With Dr. Lancer's The Method Skincare Kit
September 21, 2017

This is a Sponsored Post for Lancer with Influenster.  All opinions are my own. There are affiliate links in this post. I remember when Lancer was coming to the retailer I was working for years ago, before the kids were born.  I was working at the luxury skincare counter.  We hadn't even received it yet and the phones were ringing off the hook with people ordering it like it was gold.  I have sold so many luxury skincare items; La Mer, La Prairie, Revive, Cle De Peau, SK-II, Dr. Brandt, and many more. So, when I received The Method 3-step skin care kit I was beyond excited! I have tried almost everything. But I have never tried Lancer.   Lancer The Method: Polish AntiAging Exfoliator The first step in …

The Importance of Self-Care
August 24, 2017

I was reminded about self-care recently by a friend.  I forget how important it is to take time out for myself to nurture myself so the I can be he mother and wife I want to be. Self care comes in all forms. For me, one of them is the beach and using body products that are aroma therapeutic. I've always loved Crabtree and Evelyn. When my mom goes to England she brings back my favorite Lavender hand cream. It's sold here in the U.S. but there's something about her bringing it back to me. Again, self-care straight from the woman who brought me into this world. So, here in Florida Summer is year-round. I always have travel size items in my bag and Crabtree & …

Swissvita Skincare With AC-11®
August 2, 2017

  Lately, I have been more selective with reviewing skincare products.  It seems like everyone out there claims to have "the one."  I'm not looking for drastic results, especially at forty six-years-old.  But now is the time more than ever to take care of my skin.  Gone are the days when I could get by with just a face lotion. Now I have other concerns like wrinkles around my eyes, sun spots, and all around a less youthful appearance.  I even have new concerns such as dark circles under my eyes.  This happened after kids of course.  But some people struggle with dark circles because it's hereditary. This is why I chose to try Swissvita.  Europe has some amazing, high quality products that the States does not offer.  …

Trader Joe's Enrich Moisturizing Face Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 15
June 25, 2017

When I worked in Cosmetics I was often asked, "What is the best anti-wrinkle cream you would recommend?"  I've sold skincare products by Doctors and over the counter skincare products from La Mer to Lancôme.  My answer today would be SUNBLOCK. Period. End of story.  If you had to choose between a serum and a moisturizer according to your budget, I would buy a great serum (they work deeper into the skin) and buy a good moisturizer with sunblock. You can buy all the wrinkles creams you want.  None of them will work if you're not protecting your skin with sunblock. The sunspots will come back with a vengeance.  Your skin will become blotchy and you would have wasted money of wrinkle creams that promise …

Lips MD by Jess Introduces me to LipSense
April 16, 2017

Surprised sexy housewife I've tried a million long wearing lipsticks. This is not an understatement. My lips have gone through the wringer. I've sold the most luxurious of makeup with promises of smoothing wrinkles and plumping lips. But when I tried the over the counter long wearing lipsticks, it didn't matter how expensive, or what the brand was, they dried out my lips. So "surprised" is an understatement of how I felt when I was given LipSense by Lips MD by Jess.  I had no faith.  I'd given up wearing long lasting lipstick for good.  I thought it was just another gimmick.  But I was shocked when it fulfilled all its claims of staying on and lasting for hours.  More importantly, it did not dry out my …

Wake Up to Makeup and Check Out The Balm Cosmetics!
April 11, 2017

I've tried a lot of make up in my cosmetic retail days, but I've never tried The Balm.  the bomb!  Priced reasonable and packaged using a vintage inspired theme, it really blew me away.  Oh yes, big bonus; it's talc free, paraben free, and cruelty free! I got some products from Wakeup To Makeup's Melissa Freed. She is a makeup artist and aesthetician.  She picked out the colors for me based upon my needs and shipped them right to me.  I didn't have to walk into a department store and get bombarded or overwhelmed.  How many of us go into the cosmetics department looking for an eyeliner and leaving with a whole skincare regimen?  We are all guilty of it mainly because of our weakness for …

Red Apple Lipstick Comes Out With Blush and Bronzer!
February 12, 2017

I've been waiting for this day... I have enjoyed wearing Red Apple Lipstick products for two years now.  I thought I'd lose it when they came out with their mascara.  But now they have added blush and bronzer!  Woohoo! Blush and bronzer are so important.  They create balance and illusion.  They give you a fresh, contoured glow.  I used to be able to get that at the beach, lol.  Not now.  That sun kissed look can only be achieved by makeup and I don't suggest getting it from the sun.  As you age, the damage will show up.  Trust me! I now know that I deserve better for my skin.  I love using toxin free makeup products.  That's why I love Red Apple Lipstick products.  This blush has …
