My Top Beauty Resolutions for 2018

Hi ladies!
It’s 2018, and there is no better time to get in the full swing of skincare than now. I know its cold in most parts, but taking care of your skin should be a top priority to keep it healthy and beautiful. We all want that glowing, dewy skin, and with these resolutions, you will have the Best skin ever. Plus, isn’t it always fun to buy skin care products?
– 1. GET ENOUGH SLEEP- I can’t stress this enough. Sleep deprivation is one of the top reasons we don’t feel at the top of our game, but our skin takes a dive and a deep one. We tend to look tires, and our skin can actually look drab when we aren’t getting our zzz’s. It’s imperative that we strive each night for at least 7-8 hours of good sleep. Sleep helps our skin repair damage and remove toxins. It gives our skin a chance to breathe, and recover. If you need help falling asleep, sipping on warm tea or even taking a melatonin supplement has worked wonders for me. Try to avoid T.V. and alcohol before bed.
– 2. TRY ADDING SOME SUPER FOODS TO YOUR DIET FOR SUPER SKIN- We all know by now that what we put in our body reflects no only on the inside, but the outside. Drinking plenty of filtered water daily, and adding super foods to your diet such as apples, wheatgrass, kale, and spinach can make your skin glow like no other. These all have amazing benefits on your skin.
– 3. EXFOLIATE,EXFOLIATE,EXFOLIATE- Get rid of your old skin cells, and turn over good ones. Exfoliating your skin is marvelous for the skin and has shown to improve clarity and healthier- looking skin. Try doing it 2-3 days a week. This will truly improve the glow of your skin .
– 4. USE A GOOD NIGHT AND DAY CREAM- This is truly important when heading out into the environment. A good one traced with a good SPF will help skin protection against the pollution that we entail every day. I love Charlotte Tilbury Cream. It’s truly amazing. This will help nourish and rejuvenate your skin . Well there are my Top Resolutions for your skin for this year! Keep thriving and beautiful skin.pexels. com


SiO Beauty is the Full Package

SiO Beauty is the full package when wanting to look beautiful and even more feel beautiful. I recently reviewed some of their products and I was astounded at the results. It’s one thing to spend hundreds of dollars at the doctors office to tighten up areas such as the face and neck, and dissolve the wrinkles we so much want to get rid of, but with SiO Beauty you do not have to do that. The patches that they have come out with are medical grade silicone power patches that smooth existing wrinkles and prevent future creases in just one night. The patches are derived from two organic componets- silicone and oxygen . When I wore these patches, they were so comfortable . They are potent and they flex just like a second skin because they are so contoured. I know that you can buy masks in the beauty stores, but these aren’t your average masks. They are clinically proven, Dermatologist Approved, Clinically tested, and you get instant gratification just after one use. After one night of wearing these patches, your skin will be like brand new. I absolutely fell in love with these patches. I went to bed, and all night it felt as if I had nothing on my face. I slept well, and the patches didn’t slide off or move around. I liked the natural feel of the patches, but even more I loved what I seen the next morning. My skin looked amazing. My creases had diminished on my neck, and I couldn’t believe the results. I was so happy with the results that I started telling my friends and family. Are you looking for something quick, efficient, and amazing? Look no further, and get you SiO Beauty patches today.


Great ways to get those amazing eyelashes! 

Hi ladies! 

It seems these days , everyone and their sister are wearing fake eyelashes, and as glamorous as that sounds at times, who has the time , or better yet, who wants to make the time to apply those every day? Not me. There are so many amazing products out there to give yourself full , beautiful lashes that you love. 

Mascara is one item I just can’t live without. It would be the one item I would hope to have with me on a stranded island, among any other makeup item. One reason.. It adds so much to your eyes. Here are some great ways to achieve those to die for lashes! 

– always take mascara off every night before bed. I can’t tell you how bad it is for the growth of your eyelashes to keep that on. Take off with a good makeup remover. Even coconut oil is great. 

always use a good eye lash conditioner before applying your mascara. It helps with keeping the mascara on , and not coming off through the day. I love the dior conditioner. It’s the ultimate best. 

– curl your eyelashes twice before applying mascara. This will give your eyelashes a great shape . 

– always apply a good mascara. Try to stay away from the cheap ones, as they aren’t going to stay on as well, and they do smear off. Try to invest in even a loreal mascara , as they have some of the best. 

– do not use your mascara more than 2-3 months. It’s time to switch . The mascara dries out, leaving you with clumpy eyelashes. 

– for thicker lashes, always apply two coats of mascara. Once you have applied the first, wait a few minutes for it to dry, then apply the second coat. Applying to much , to quick will result in clumpiness. 

Watch your eyelashes turn into gorgeous full lashes after applying these steps! You will never use fake lashes again.  



Morning makeup routine.. Keep it simple

Hi ladies! 

Everyone loves putting make up on for huge events, or parties, but who really needs all that on regular days , when heading to work , or working out. I have been to multiple gyms where I see women in full makeup, and think to myself, ” what are you doing”? If they only knew what that makeup was doing to their pores as they are drenching themselves in sweat. Our skin needs to breathe, and you do not need a ton of makeup to feel done up. Here are some great tips on keeping your skin breathing, but yet looking refreshed. 

Ditch the foundation

Foundation is great when you are heading out to an event, and want a long lasting look, but a tinted moisturizer is wonderful. It gives your skin a glow, gives clarity to the skin, takes out redness, and helps cover up those pores. When I see some women wearing foundation, they have no right wearing it with the way it’s applied. Tinted moisturizer is perfect for those work days. It keeps your skin looking light and bright. 

Pick a good moisturizer

When using a tinted moisturizer, make sure you are using a good one. I love  moisturizers by Laura Mercier, who has amazing products. Some moisturizers can make your skin look worse, because some of them have a greasy feel. Check one out and try before using it on a daily basis.  

 Pick a good mascara 

For regular days, try to go a little heavier on the mascara , and lighter on the lipstick or gloss. I usually do it one way or the other. If I’m using more mascara, I’ll go lighter on the lip. If I go with a pop of color on the lip, I’ll go lighter on the mascara. I do not want to leave my house looking like Tammy baker, which I’ve seen on many women. Less is more . Remember that. 

Groomed eyebrows

Make sure your eyebrows are always polished. One thing that is annoying is seeing people with outgrown eyebrows. Make sure you use a good pencil to fill in, and a great eyebrow gel to hold them in place.  

 A nude lip always works

Nude gloss or lipstick is one of my favorites. It looks amazing. This always gives a more natural look to your makeup, without looking overdone. 

This is the simple look to everyday living. Remember the less you apply, the more natural you look. 


Youth ful for life

I wanted to do a post on youthful living, because Ive gotten a few emails from some older women wanting to know how to feel young, and why they feel too old to do certain things. I have to say that no matter what age you are, you are NEVER too old to do anything. Isnt that what keeps us feeling youthful in the first place? There isnt a set age or age requirement on living. We are on this earth to live, and do all the things that we want to do. I do not live life by any rules, and neither should you. We all know that aging is inevitable. We see our birthdays pass by, our older relatives pass into the next life, our kids get older, and we see everyone around us grow older, due to knowing them for so long. It is happening. The one thing to remember is living in the moment. You need to think about the now, and do in the now, instead of worrying what is to come. No one knows what that is. Its best to live in the moment,then to worry that moment away.

I have never lived by any age requirements because i believe there are none. The one thing that makes me feel younger is the fact I get out everyday and do the things I enjoy, be around the people that make me laugh, try new hobbies. That’s what makes us at our happiest, and there is no greater joy than laughing, and having fun. There are no limits on joy. If you are 60 years old, and want to go to Disney world, GO! Whats stopping you? Feeling youthful has everything in the world to do with actual living. When I say that, I mean getting out of your comfort zone. Try new things daily. Do the things that you never thought you could do, or picture yourself doing. The best thing that I tell my followers who email me on this subject, is write down a list of all the things you want to try. Start off by crossing each one off as you do them. If some of them are hard, start off slowly. One thing that I feel more and more people do, is sell themselves short, in the aspect of living. I hear so many older people say, well I’m too old for that, or my body wouldn’t be able to handle that. Says who? That’s the living part of feeling youthful. I recently just read a Time magazine, in which there was a 98 year old man that still ran in marathons. There is no age limit on living, and I don’t care what it is. For the part of looking youthful, that’s inevitable. We are all aging, but its about how we age , that matter most. You can only do so much before you say, ok, instead of worrying all the time about “how “young you look, you should worry about “how” young you feel. thats what it comes down to. Thats why its important to not let time pass you by, by putting restraints on life. Here are my tips of feeling youthful, and living a youthful life.

Surround yourself around fun, and positive people. They are the only ones that make you laugh, and bring you joy right? Why would you settle for anything less than that? I spend my time around people who do not require a lot of maintenence. Im always up for a good time, so people that have your back always .. are the ultimate !

Think positive all the time. Positive thinking is so powerful. You may think that you are having the worst day ever, or the worst month, but believe me when I say this.. for every thing that doesn’t go as planned, something amazingly good always comes out of it. Its the power of thinking.

No matter what you do, or are doing.. Always have fun!! It doesnt matter if you are cooking, writing, reading, or dancing.. Always have fun.. Life is way too short not to. You feel more youthful when you are having fun too.

Don’t give a damn what anyone thinks. You will be judged always no matter what by some, so just do whatever you want anyway. Live for you and no one else.

Don’t put an age limit on the events you want to try. Its pretty amazing when I see someone much older than me, doing hot yoga, so if anything, its inspiring.  Always inspire!!

Always live your best life. Travel , shop, dance, read.. whatever your heart desires, is exactly what you should be doing. img_8194
