When I travel, I can only pack so much, especially with the weight and baggage limits put upon us by the airlines.
So, I try to consolidate and bring things that will work universally - and that includes beauty products!
My perfume of choice this month for traveling is Victoria's Secret's Heavenly Perfume Scent.
It's soft and floral and simply smells heavenly!
It is great for day time as it's not overpowering, isn't oily - so it's not uncomfortable or staining in very intense heat like Read more [...]
As for me, I rarely ever get puffy eyes, unless I've been crying, so this is not an issue for me.
However, if I did, I would thinly slice up some cucumbers and relax with them on my eyes for about 30 minutes to get rid of them.
My problem often is that I get dark circles, mostly because I've been busy and not getting enough sleep.
As you age, the skin under your eyes becomes thinner and thinner, making your dark circles more noticeable.
Of course, you need a great eye wrinkle cream that Read more [...]
Over 90% of women are affected by cellulite at some level or another! Did you know that?
No doubt, if you're in the business of looking good, as a model or actress, you need to keep that celly at bay!
There is a great, new product on the market - that's not a pill, not a supplement, not an invasive treatment...

A bunch of my friends have started to ask me the question of how they can get into fitness modeling...
So, I figured they are a good cross section, especially of my readers here, and I wanted to share my answer that I've been "copying and pasting" to my friends as they contact me...
This is a 3 Part Series - So, please be sure to check out Part #2 and Part #3 too!
They often ask me if I'm a fitness model - I guess because they know I work out all the time, eat healthy and model too, Read more [...]
No word of a lie...
All week long, I've been somehow choosing to stand next to the people in the room with the WORST BREATH EVER!
What is going on people???
It is important to brush your teeth & YOUR TONGUE EVERYDAY! If you don't brush your tongue, you're missing most of the stink that accumulates in your mouth!
GUM toothbrushes are my favorite - they feel the best on my gums! :)
In fact, you should be doing this 3 times a day after you eat every meal. It would be even better Read more [...]
You wouldn't believe how often I'm asked what perfume I wear...
I own a lot of perfume, but stick to my few favorites that are "signature fragrances" for me!
I have my favorite inexpensive perfume, a mid-priced fave, and a high priced fave...
Today, I'll share with you the fragrance I've been wearing since I was a pre-teen, and all of my old friends will tell you it reminds them of me...
I love Wild Musk by Coty - Now, before you go getting your knickers in a knot, it doesn't smell Read more [...]
No doubt, if you're pregnant, you're being especially careful as to what you put in and on your body.
That goes for beauty products as well. You may not have been so careful before you were pregnant, but now you've got another person inside of you that you are exceptionally attached to and in charge of protecting.
Have you been searching for safe beauty products and treatments, but to no avail?
Here is the solution to your problem...
The Pregnant Woman's Beauty Book is a fabulous Read more [...]

My cousin sent me this photo of her at our Grandmother and Grandfather's house...
Apparently, as the story goes, she got into my mother's lipstick and voilà...Instant cute!
She says she didn't get into trouble either...since it was so adorable!
My mother says she remembers this all too well! LOL...

Whenever I am about to recycle bottles from beauty products that I finished using, they go next to my computer to remind me to tell you what I think about them.
I tried the Coryse Salomé Performance Or Refining Eye Contour Gel.
Did I Like It?
Sure, I think it's a solid eye cream that you are able to use day or night to moisturize those eyes.
It's nice and thick, but not greasy.
I feel it has done a nice job...
* Tip: I often like to moisten my fingertips with water before I apply Read more [...]

Jenny D, my hair stylist, gave me a tip so as not to dry out your hair in the shower.
Most of us take warm or hot showers, and most of us probably wash our hair first before you do anything else.
You probably also condition your hair lastly!

Wow...It never ceases to amaze me how many nail salons try to dupe their customers into thinking that the acrylic nails are actually gel nails...
This is a serious problem because not only are you getting charged for more expensive "solar gel" or "bio gel" nails, the acrylic nails are not good for your health, unlike the gel nails.
So, How Do You Know The Difference?
If the product applied to your nails is in any kind of powder form, that you witness, before being put on your nails, they Read more [...]
Let's face it...There are a lot of things many of us would change about their bodies if we could. Am I correct?
As a woman, for example, we have to shave constantly...It gets old quickly! Laser Hair Removal or Reduction is a new craze...rightfully so! It's often a permanent solution to this womanly dilemma!
Hair removal is not just for ladies anymore...Men are becoming more self-conscious about their body hair too...
What about that crazy tattoo many people get when they are a teen or in Read more [...]
Alright...Who else is sick of the smell of sunless tanning lotions?
Those "natural glow" moisturizers that boast to give you a radiant glow all year long, gently...Still Stink!!!
You might be able to tolerate it, or maybe not even smell it for the 1st few days you wear it, but it will come...
Not only that, even the light formulations for lighter skin, which I don't have, are too dark and can create streaks and dark spots around your joints when used everyday!
What Do I Do?
