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.

For now, allow me to introduce you to my channel:

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

Friday Favorites: Beauty Tips

For today's Friday Favorites, I decided to do something a little different by showcasing some of my favorite products for the week but also how these products became some of my beauty secrets.  Plenty of ladies have items that they use as quick tips or shortcuts to achieving something convenient in terms of beauty.  These are items used on a consistent basis for me and I will explain why.

1) Toothpaste - Oddly enough, I dab a little toothpaste on a blemish when it surfaces because it helps dry it up quickly.

2) Scotch Tape - When I am creating a very dramatic smokey eye for an event or night time look, I achieve this by lining the edge of my brow bone with scotch tape to give it definition.

3) Baby Oil - When I need to clean up the edge of my eye makeup or any eyeshadow fall out from applying, I take a Q-tip and it quickly comes off with a small amount of baby oil.

4) 100% Acetone - Ever since the first time I used this, I won't ever go back to the typical nail polish remover.  This removes nail polish much quicker and more effectively.

5) Band-Aids - If I want to add detail or lining to my nails, I use these to create a nice clean line.

3D White Whitestrips by Crest - These are great for a quick touch-up on your pearly whites!

Friday Favorites: My Weekly Loves

As you may know, I bring you a display of my favorite items of the week for my Friday posts!  Anyway, here are my chosen products of the week.  Let me know what some of your favorites are.

Truvia - This natural calorie-free sweetener is the perfect substitute for your standard sugar, which is filled with calories

The Power by Rhonda Byrne Book - This book is full of powerful words and thoughts that help motivate me to create an affluent life

L'Oreal Magic Smooth Souffle Foundation - This BY FAR my favorite drugstore foundation because it applies so smoothly, it's lightweight, and requires no setting.  It's amazing!

Sally Hansen Smooth Perfect Nail Polish - These pastel colored nail polishes are perfect for the spring season!

Friday Favorites!

It's Friday, loves!  For this week's round of Friday Favorites, I have included some of my favorite beauty and fashion items.  I also added a few healthy lifestyle items.  I was not compensated for this blog post nor was I asked to write about the following brands.

This "Rich Girl" lipstick is one of my favorite beauty items.  I use this almost every day!  I received this particular one at a fashion show; however, I'm sure they carry it at Sephora or ULTA.

Since I am quite the "busy mama" lately, I thought that this planner was cute and keeps me organized.  I like to keep my life clean and organized so this can really help a lady out sometimes!

Although wearing heels is great, sometimes I need to rock some flats.  Therefore, I like to carry these flats around with me from time to time so I can just throw them on if necessary.

I've been using this Line Stiletto liquid eyeliner by Maybelline for quite some time now.  It's great if you are looking to create a nice cat eye.

This purse is the perfect daytime handbag, and I've been using it almost every day this week.  It was gifted from ALDO.

Last but not least, I received these inspirational books and affirmations yesterday!  I love positive literature.  As most of you know, I believe that whatever you desire can come to you as long as you remain positive about your life.  I hope you enjoyed Friday Favorites.  Enjoy your weekend!
