Gillette Venus "Step Up and Step Out" Miami Tour Stop


When Venus invited me to a summer glam experience to benefit Step Up Women's Network, what could I possibly say (but yes, please)?  The Gillette Venus "Step Up and Step Out" tour stopped in Miami last week on Lincoln Road, encouraging women to show off their look on the "blue carpet."  For every step taken on the “blue carpet,” Venus donated $1 to Step Up Women’s Network.  

As a philanthropist myself, I am always down to support any cause that empowers women.  Step Up Women's Network is an organization dedicated to igniting women and girls to fulfill their potential, so Gillette Venus invited all of the ladies in Miami out to bring out their inner "Goddess" for this lavish event.

Women were invited to enjoy a luxurious shaving experience, have access to hair and makeup touchup stations, try on the latest spring and summer fashions from Rent the Runway, and strut their personal look on the “blue carpet.”  I had so much fun trying on various high-end designer items from Rent the Runway and walking the "blue carpet."

The shaving experience was luxurious, as I tried out the Gillette Venus & Olay Sugarberry razor



Touchup stations were complete with CoverGirl products for days!

For those who couldn't attend, you could simply tweet with the hashtag #StepUp and $1 would be donated in your honor.  Other tour stops included New York City, Atlanta, and Los Angeles. 

What I'm Rocking:

Beauty Tutorial: CoverGirl Natural Summer Look

Have you ever been outside on a hot, summer day and your makeup feels as though it's falling off your face?  Oh, me too.  One of the most tried and true methods for keeping summertime makeup light is to either apply a tinted moisturizer or simply wear a thin based foundation with SPF.  In this beauty tutorial, I am featuring CoverGirl's Simply Ageless Foundation with SPF along with a few other high and low end cosmetic items to complete a natural look that is perfect for a warm summer day.

This look would pair well with a light-toned summer dress or a bright maxi skirt and a loose fitting graphic t-shirt.

New Video: Holiday Makeup Tutorial

After a week of being sick, I finally had the energy to film a new beauty tutorial.  I'm sorry for the hiatus, as I didn't update my blog or my YouTube channel but I'm back ladies and gentlemen!  I'm not quite sure if it's the fact that my son is older now, but I have been in the holiday spirit this year and I've been looking forward to spending Christmas with my family and friends.  Therefore, my latest video is a holiday beauty tutorial that's perfect for a Christmas party with friends or even a family get together.  It would also be great for a New Year's glamorous look as well.  Enjoy ;)

What's in my August myGlam Bag?

Happy Monday ladies (and gentlemen)!  I don't know about you, but I love receiving packages in the mail.  It's almost as if it's Christmas via the FedEx man.  Over the weekend I received my August myGlam Bag, which I absolutely love because it's filled with summer beauty goodies that I can't wait to try out!  The myGlam Bag is a great way to try out new beauty products that you might not normally go out and purchase yourself.  The products are chosen by other beauty experts as well, so it's a win-win.  In this month's myGlam Bag, I receive the following:

eclos Moisture Therapy Regenerative Cream
eclos Cellular Activator Facial Serum
Demeter Roll on Perfume Oil
Salty Glama-ZODI Eye Shadow
Circus by Andrea's Choice Nail Polish (hot pink <3)

So far, I've tried out the eclos products and I love the way they make my skin feel.  I'm looking forward to testing out the others as well.

What's in my May Glam Bag?

Happy Monday everyone!  After working out early this morning, I'm feeling refreshed and ready to conquer the upcoming week.  One of my greatest tips is to work out in the morning because it gives you more energy for the rest of the day and you have it "out of the way."  Over the weekend, I had so much to do but I managed to squeeze in some time for me to relax with my baby boy.

I'm not sure if you recall, but last month I created a post about my April MyGlam Bag and what I received.  If you missed it, check it out here.  It's a monthly subscription where you receive various high quality beauty products.  It's quite a deal for the pricing that they offer considering the brands included in each bag and the quality of product.  This month's items are pretty good.  I love incorporating a bold red lip to certain looks so I can't wait to try out the red lipstick. 

What's in my April MyGlam Bag?
Theme: Love is in the Air

Philosophy Love Sweet Love Spray Fragrance
Studio Gear Complete Color Lipstick
Miss Beauty Nail Bling
MyGlam Concealer Brush & Defining Eyeliner Brush
