Olay 28-Day Challenge: Results

It has been said that it takes at least three weeks to form a habit, and I've learned that with consistency comes results. I've teamed up with Olay to complete the 28-Day Challenge using only two products. Therefore, over the course of 28 days I replaced all facial moisturizers and eye creams with the following two-step regimen:

Step 1: AM apply the Olay Total Effects Moisturizer with SPF 15
Step 2: AM and PM apply Olay Eyes Deep Hydrating Eye Gel


BEFORE // Day 1: My skin had many imperfections and blemishes, with oily residue.

When I first began this journey, I honestly wasn't expecting to achieve results so early in the process. However, by day 7 my skin was already visibly healthier looking. My skin appearance began looking more even and I looked less tired throughout the day.




By day 14, my skin felt moisturized and hydrated throughout the day. Aside from that, both products made my skin feel cared for and I really looked forward to putting them on each day. It was almost like a therapeutic ritual that I enjoyed each morning and night.



AFTER // Day 28

 At the end  the 28 days, my skin looked and felt much healthier to say the least. It's incredible how integrating one daily habit into my life was seemingly so easy and effective. What I noticed about the Olay Total Effects Moisturizer with SPF 15 is that it evened my skin tone and appearance, and brought out a brighter glow. I also noticed a difference in minimizing my pores and reducing dark spots on my face. I don't know about you guys, but I don't get enough sleep each night. Being a busy mom, I receive about five hours of sleep per night if I'm lucky enough. Hence, the skin under my eyes is often dry and puffy. By using the Olay Eyes Deep Hydrating Eye Gel each morning and night, the skin under my eyes were hydrated and the delicate skin plumped. The cooling formula also helped fight visible signs of fatigue and under eye dehydration lines.

Therefore, I encourage you to join the journey with a visit to an Olay Skin Advisor so that you can experience the easy no-brainer skin regimen too. An Olay Skin Advisor is the most precise skin diagnosis known to public (after using Skin Advisor, 95% of women agreed that product recommendations felt "right for her") and can provide you with a personalized skincare regimen. The first 15 readers to visit will receive $40 off their purchase of recommended products!

New Video: How to Pamper Yourself with a DIY Girl's Night In

Every girl needs a little R&R (rest and relaxation) once in awhile.  Am I right or am I right?  On those Sunday nights when I just want to stay at home and relax, I enjoy creating my own little "DIY Girl's Night In" by making my home a spa in itself.  This would also be a great idea to try out with your closest girl friends by inviting them over for a cozy night in.

No "Girl's Night In" would be complete without:

Check out my "How to Pamper Yourself: DIY "Girl's Night In" video and let me know if you try it out!

Tribal.

One of my favorite fashion trends for the summer is showing off a little abdomen, and Miami has the perfect weather for such an outfit.  Actually, the weather is so hot that wearing no clothes at all would seem perfectly normal in my mind (although my body would not agree).  For today's look of the day I paired a cropped bustier from the Spring 2013 "Forever LA" collection with a pair of high-waisted, lightweight pants from H&M's Conscious Collection.  Although I have not been shopping as much at Forever 21 lately, this particular collection caught my eye with its bold and alluring pieces which feature a mix of graphic tribal prints.



According to Grazia Daily, "The Forever LA collection has two parts, the West Side and the East Side. The East Side is inspired by 90s urban Los Angeles style with vintage and alternative style pieces—think Fresh Prince of Bel Air. While the West Side embodies the laid-back vibe of LA with abstract prints, vibrant sneakers and crop tops.”  The face of the Forever LA collection is the timeless beauty, Cassie.

What I'm Rocking:
Cropped Bustier by F21 (Forever LA)
Pants by H&M Conscious Collection
Shoes by Steve Madden
Bracelet by Kate Spade
Bangles by Boutique
Sunglasses by F21
2-Finger Ring by ALDO














Forever 21 Global BV

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:

The Perfect Casual Look for the Summer

One of my favorite items for the summer is my floral shorts, which can be dressed up or down.  In today's look of the day, I put together a casual outfit that I wore over the weekend.  An alternative to dressing these shorts down would be to pair them with a sheer black blouse or peplum top along with some strappy sandal heels or lucite pumps.  Since I was just out running some errands and having brunch, I decided to go for a more casual look that allowed me to stay pretty comfortable.


 What I'm Rocking:
Bag (Gifted from Italy)
Mossimo shoes by Target
Shorts by ZARA
Chambray blouse
Cuff by H&M
