Mascara Cocktailing with Revlon® Mascara

April 30, 2017, this coming Sunday, is Revlon® Mascara Day at Walgreens, so mark your calendar ladies! What does that mean for you and I? It means that when you visit your local Walgreens store, you can BOGO for 50% any Revlon product!

As some of you may already know, I don’t wear make-up on a daily basis. If anything, I would wear a light foundation or BB Cream, powder, a little bit of blush and mascara for a natural fresh look.

I have a slightly long eyelashes and I love enhancing it with a mascara. For me, that’s the easiest, most natural and prettiest way to go. My eyes don’t work quite well with false eyelashes over a long period of time.

4 Refreshing Products That I Took With Me To Honeymoon

As you all know, I just got married a couple of weeks ago and it was the best day ever! But planning my own wedding wasn’t as easy as I thought. There were lots of details that I wanted to put in the wedding and it was pretty stressful to say the least. There were lots of last minute things that popped up, even the day of the wedding. However, the day still turned out to be very special for us and our guests.

The honeymoon part was also something that my husband and I both looked forward to. And it was such a refreshing time. We enjoyed the beach, the activities, the food and drinks, and the people. I will share more of that on another post.

While traveling to another country that’s unfamiliar to you is fun and exciting, it can also be stressful, especially when you don’t know what to expect, right? But being quite ready and fully-packed up with the right products to take with you can be key, especially if you don’t know where to get the products you normally use in a foreign country where there’s no Walmart or Walgreens.

Oooh La La, Sexy Hair!

I’ve always had long hair for as long as I can remember and sometimes caring for it and maintaining healthy, shiny hair can be quite challenging.

There’s just so many products out there to choose from but unless you are aware of the ingredients in hair care products that are harmful for your hair and health in general, you probably will just grab anything that you think “will work for you” or what you think already works for you. I know I do.

However, chemicals such as sulfates, gluten, and paraben are pretty common in hair care products that are readily available at our local pharmacies and grocery stores. Sulfates are basically a mild detergent that is used to create suds. The issue with it though is that it strips your hair of its natural essential oils and weakens your hair follicle and strands over time. Parabens, on the other hand, are known to cause cancer. And while glutens have no direct correlation to the health of your hair, having no gluten in hair care products helps those who have sensitivity to it.

What’s In My Travel Bag? Beauty Bar Edition

Happy Friday Guys! I’m currently in Dallas, Texas for the weekend with some blogger babes, touring what the city has to offer in fashion and otherwise. Although I’ve been to Dallas quite a few times, I don’t think that I’ve really explored it and being the big city that it is, I’m sure it has a lot to offer! I took a mini 4-hour road trip yesterday and today I’m sharing with you what I have in my travel bag. 

I don’t always get to do this kind of post so thought it’d be fun to show you what’s in my travel bag this time. FYI, I literally took this from my hotel room at Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek so this is legitimately what I have in my Barrington Gift St. Anne Tote travel bag! We will be everywhere in Dallas – from strolling at the park to visiting museums to shopping, makeovers, and nightouts so what you will see are my must-haves!

5 “Must Haves” For Fall

In just a few days, we will all officially say “goodbye” to summer. Sigh. I am already dreading the cold weather. My body is always tensed and stiff during cold season and I just hated it. This tropical girl can tolerate a 90 degree weather anytime versus a 50 degree. I get cold in my house at 79 degrees for goodness’ sake. So you can imagine why I absolutely dread the cold season.

So with the change of season, comes the change in temperatures, as well as a few things in our closet and daily rituals, to adopt to the weather  – from skin care to wardrobe, here are my 5 “must have” suggestions for you.

Power to the Period and How You Can Make a Difference

Over the years, as I’ve grown older and more mature, I learn to put a lot of things in perspective. Looking at what others don’t have versus what I don’t have helps me accomplish that and makes me just grateful for the things in life and be content with what I have. 

It’s amazing to know that the things that are easily accessible to us aren’t as always accessible to the less fortunate ones. Sadly, as little and seemingly insignificant as sanitary napkins aren’t readily available to the women in homeless shelters. 

I must admit, there have been countless times when I’ve seen my individually-packed unused sanitary napkins just lying around on my bed or left in the pockets of my totes and different purses. I wouldn’t be surprised if I even have some extra in my trunk organizer! Makes me feel guilty that I have these too many unused and clean sanitary napkins while there are women in homeless shelters who lack what I obviously quite have in abundance of!

How to Defy Aging and Hair Loss

I have to be honest: Aging scares me. I’m a late bloomer and people always think I’m 10-15 years younger than my real age. Actually, I never used to tell anyone my age and only my family and a few close friends know it.

But the thought of looking in the mirror with wrinkled skin and thinning gray hair is pretty scary for me. I guess I enjoy the fact that people usually think I’m younger than my age and I’ve been enjoying that since I was in my 20’s. Imagine being 25 and people thought, I was 16.
