Beautified: Anastasia Beverly Hills

Who can resist a stellar deal? I was hoping I’d say “ME!” but that boat sailed a long time ago… Earlier this week, my cousin was in town and squeezed me in her schedule before she took off to New Orleans for a few days. So, what better way to get in some quality bonding time than a little shopping and dining at the Somerset Collection. Let me start by saying that I had no intentions of buying ANYTHING during this trip. Little did I know that I would stumble upon a handful of fabulous goods at Macy’s.

Teaser: Pre-Shoot Makeup Fun

I had a blast testing out some new looks, colors and fashion fun with my dear friend and talented makeup artist David this GORGEOUS weekend! We got some fabulous photoshoots done that I’m dying to share with you… but until then, here’s a little teaser from behind-the-scenes. I’m so obsessed with this look! He even broke in his never-before-used MAC RiRi Ruby Woo red on me… channeling my inner Rihanna right now. Red lips = signature lips! I asked David, “Can you make me this perfect everyday, please?” Haha, if only. My skin was literally flawless — no photo editing necessary whatsoever. Ladies, he’s available for booking – if interested, let me know and I can get you in contact with him. 🙂

April Glam Bag: Beautifully Bohemian

It’s here, it’s finally here! My very first Ipsy glam bag came wrapped in soft, metallic pink packaging. After hearing everyone rave about their glam bags, I just had to try it for myself. I will admit, Ipsy made a very good first impression! Is it silly to say that I was most excited for the bag itself?! I’m heading to San Francisco next week and this will totally come in handy. The ‘beautifully bohemian’ theme this month is right up my alley. What a fabulous introductory bag to start off with!

My Favorite Things: Aveda Products

In college, I was a working girl. Restaurant, retail, marketing, promotions — I did it all. At one point, I was working three jobs to fund my lifestyle and pay for the necessities. One of my odd jobs was working for Douglas J’s event promotions team where I was introduced to Aveda products.Not only do these products have a ridiculously pleasant scent, they’re made with naturally derived ingredients — now that’s a bonus!

March Birchbox Review

It’s that time of the month again! Look what the mailman dropped off to me – a box fit for a beauty babe. The first thing I noticed was the playful spring prints on this month’s Birchbox. Too bad my reaction to what was inside wasn’t as pretty as the outside. There’s always a 50/50 chance to whether or not the curated box will be a hit or miss. So, of all the things that I got, what did I love, hate or find indifferent? Let’s take a closer look…

Sassy Lips & Saturday Shenanigans

The weekend is here and I’m ready to take it on with my gorgeous Cruella red lips, black lace top and a light-washed denim moto jacket. Oh, and my Tory Burch sunnies which I absolutely adore! Some of you have been wondering how I like them so far, so here’s a little food for thought…

Swoon-Worthy Color

After a long week of feeling a bit under the weather, it was time for me to redeem myself.It’s crazy how lethargic and ‘not myself’ I feel away from the gym and off my routine for a few days. Now that I’ve been back at it, I’m feeling close to 100% again. I’ve been catching up on the past week’s television shows and recharging myself with some tasty yet nutritious foods. Who can resist avocado toast especially when it’s topped with an egg? Not I! I swear, I’m not into the butters or jams and in my opinion, the mashed avocado is spot on. It makes a perfect post-workout meal or quick & easy brunch. Hours later, I made a veggie and black bean quesadilla topped with smokey chipotle Greek yogurt. I know, TOTALLY looks like a slice of pie!
