What You Should Know About The Vampire Facial

Have you heard of the Vampire Facial aka PRP (platelet rich plasma) Facial? I had heard about it from my Esthetician, Audrey from Trilogy Medical Center, but my only reference to this treatment before that was seeing a bloody-faced picture of Kim Kardashian floating around the internet. Which had me thinking “Um, no thank you.” […]

The torso’s aren’t long enough so you are spilling out the top or […]

My 8 Year Trick To Staying Wrinkle-Free

A couple years ago during a birthday dinner with a few of my girlfriends, we got talking and I realized they didn’t know how old I was turning. Naturally, I asked them how old they thought I was turning (this could’ve gone either way) and they guesses younger. The guesses ranged from age 23-25, their […]

Black Floral and Denim//Mommy and Me

Jade has been watching me very closely over the past three-and-a-half years and she loves doing and imitating everything I do. It’s not so cute when I catch her coloring over her eyelids with bright red lipstick, but when we wear matching jewelry I can’t get enough. I love outfits that are fast and easy to put together because I like looking ready […]

30 Day Makeup Challenge

We all know those women that always look put together. Like their hair and makeup are always done, ALWAYS. Yeah, thats not me, and I don’t know if I’ll ever be that way which I’m fine with. What I do know is I feel 100% better about my appearance when I actually wear makeup, funny how that […]

Tarte Cosmetics

I’d bet most new moms could totally relate to this: It felt like a huge part of myself was lost when I started staying home with my daughter. Because I wasn’t going out into the world as often, I didn’t need to get “ready” as often. I started dressing more comfortably and getting lash extensions to save […]

Barbie Lash-Extentions

  When I saw these initially, I thought they were so weird looking. So weird that surely they wouldn’t work or work very well.

Brazilian Blowout

    Every wonder why Brazilian Blowouts are so expensive? Well its because they take about 3 hours to do (for my length of hair) and they work! Here is a picture of my hair air-dried before getting my treatment. It looks pretty sad to say the least, thank goodness for the inventor of the […]

How Professionals Shape Eyebrows

   Shaping eyebrows isn’t a one size/shape fits all deal, you can only work with what you have. Eyebrows are like sisters, they will look very similar but are rarely identical.      First, use an imaginary line (or pencil) to measure from the inner corner of your eye down the side of your nose […]

Image Skincare
