Pinterest Anyone?

Took a weekend trip to DC and bought some jewelry at Eastern Market. 


I pinned this on my fledgling Pinterest board. Anyone else on Pinterest? :)

Dicaprio Looks Better Older

This is a text I received from my mom this morning.


So what do you think...is my mom right? Is middle-aged "Caprio" better?

Oh, Sunny Day!

Yellow Fever (not that kind)! I wore this shirt my mom got me from Marshall's to a casting. Another girl there was wearing a cute bright yellow blazer like this Matalan cropped one here. I ran into other fellow yellows on the train. All the Loehman's windows showcased yellow outfits. Yellow's in, and Taylor Swift agrees!

Beyonce: Her H&M Collection

Beyonce aka Mrs. Carter in her H&M promo video with new song "Standing in the Sun". I want to wipe off all the sand off of her when she is in her black fringe bikini (which I like). Everything else seems kind of ehhhh. Of course, she pulls them off with her GORG self! Do you like the collection?

Cross Design Craze

Yesterday I went shopping with my niece, and I noticed a lot of apparel with cross designs on them.


At first, I attributed this to the owner's Christian background when I was at Forever 21. (If you've ever noticed, "John 3:16" is printed on their iconic yellow shopping bags. Similarly, the yummy hamburger chain In-N-Out has Bible verses on the underside of soda cups and on wrappers.)

But I also saw cross design fashion at H & M, which I don't believe has any religious affiliations.

Out of curiosity, I searched online for more fashion items with the cross.

Review: Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Volumizing Mascara


image via sephora.com

I bought one of those Sephora holiday mascara kits, and one of my favorite mascaras from it is the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Volumizing Mascara (the other is the LancĂ´me Hypnose Drama Instant Full Body Volume Mascara).
 
I always preface my "before" and "after" photos of my eyelashes with this statement: I have really puny lashes. Therefore, if I am raving about a mascara, imagine what could be with ACTUAL lashes. And these photos don't do any justice to how much more volume and length my eyelashes experience when I use this Stila mascara.

Nail Art for Alicia Keys Concert


Hitting the Alicia Keys concert tonight and trying to get creative with my nails. Thinking musical notes or flames for rest of nails. Ideas? (I accidentally brought white crackle for my piano keys!)


A Chocolate-y Way to Suppress Your Unhealthy Cravings!


Eat chocolate to curb your cravings? Here's a tip from Robert Pagliarini of richerlife.com.

According to a new study from Denmark, researchers found that when certain participants were given 100g of dark chocolate (as opposed to milk chocolate), they were less interested in eating fatty, salty or sugary foods – even up to 2 hours after consuming the dark chocolate!

If you eat milk chocolate, try giving dark chocolate a go. Aim for brands that offer 70% or more cocoa (check the label). If you feel like some chocolate, aim for 2 small squares and this should satisfy.

Miracle Skin Transformer

I had the unique opportunity to test Miracle Skin Transformer and wanted to share my experience using the product.
image via miracleskintransformer.com

When I applied this silicone skin treatment, one of the first things I noticed was how soft my skin felt.  It had that velvety smooth primer texture to it.  The product is described as providing "weightless coverage", and I have to agree that I never felt any heaviness to my face...even when building the coverage with several applications.  I remember using the phrase "light and airy" to describe how this multi-tasking hybrid felt on my face and on my fingers.

Besides the silky smooth feeling, I loved how the treatment LOOKED on my face. Even after one application, my skin looked more evened out and gave an almost air-brushed, dewey quality to my face. It also minimized the appearance of my pores.

I think what was most striking about this product was just how CLEAN I felt using it. As I mentioned, there was no heaviness to it.  You know how you sometimes use foundation, and you feel like you have this caked, pore-clogging mess of chemicals on your skin? I didn't get this at all with the Miracle Skin Transformer. There wasn't even a scent.  I just felt like I had this healthy, hydrating formula hugging my skin.

So the above are merely my opinions about Miracle Skin Transformer. Allow me to add the extra goodies that benefit your skin:

*UVA/UVB SPF 20
*"MST Complex" - rich in natural active antioxidants and vitamins, including Saw Palmetto and Passion Fruit extracts
*organic certified Ecophysalis - natural plant extract that protects your skin from free radicals and provides anti-inflammatory and anti-photo aging protection
*contains all-natural active ingredients
*Vitamin K, Vitamin A, Vitamin E and CO Enzyme Q10 micro beads that promote cell renewal, skin firmness, and circulation
*free of petrochemicals, synthetic fragrance, parabens, dyes, wax, mineral oils and talc

Below is my before and after shot! I wanted to look up some product info for this review, and I saw my photos on their website! I wear Miracle Skin Transformer in Light.

I highly recommend Miracle Skin Transformer, especially for those of you who hate the weight of foundation on your face.  I tested out this product for the company, but I was not paid for my testimony. You can also check out the reviews from Sephora customers here!

Thank you for reading!

Update: Kiss Nail Dress


I had to pull off my Kiss Nail Dress due to an audition. But after 5 days, only the edges were a bit worn off. Pulling them off was easy! Quick swipes of cotton pads with nail polish remover were all I needed to get rid of excess adhesive. It felt so nice to cut my nails short again!
