Beautified: Anastasia Beverly Hills

Who canย 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 uponย a handful of fabulous goodsย 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 fromย 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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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!
