New Fashion Crush

Beauty, Fashion, Lifestyle

yI know I’ve been M.I.A for a few weeks, there has been a lot going on and hope you’ve all been doing well.

The truth is I haven’t really found anything exciting, not much is going on in terms of beauty and fashion inspiration, at least in my opinion.

But today I found inspiration and I have a new crush, Jeanne Damas, she’s a model, fashion blogger and photographer.

I love her effortless style and her belief that a swipe of crimson not only works with everything in our closets, but adds instant glamor to a not so glamorous day.

Beauty Deals On Black Friday!

Lifestyle

Screen Shot 2014-11-21 at 19.05.39[1]Hi Ladies! So, an amazing Black Friday special came to my attention this morning.

Now, I haven’t tried all of the brands under the umbrella but I can assure you that Fountain Beauty is worth every penny and right now you can save on a bundle of three beauty related molecules for $40.

Today was the first day I added my Beauty Molecule to distilled water and it didn’t taste bad, it was very drinkable and healthy for my skin.

I also brought some Organic Apple Cider Vinegar to work with me to add it to my water throughout the day, as it’s supposed to help curb your appetite and it works!

Happy Turkey Day!

The Beauty Molecule by Fountain Beauty

Beauty, Lifestyle, Skincare

Fountain BeautyYou guys know by now that if a vitamin or potion promises to give me healthy skin, that I’m going to drink it, right?

I recently started taking 1 Tsp of The Beauty Molecule by Fountain Beauty.  I mix it into my morning smoothie which consists of: 1/2 banana, 3 large organic frozen strawberries, a handful or organic mixed berries and a cup of organic orange juice.  I also mix in 2 Tsp of Collagen, and some filtered water.  It doesn’t taste fattening, but the benefits in a few weeks are going to be worth it.

I’ve been drinking this concoction every morning since the beauty molecule arrived.

It’s only been a few days, but I’m in it for the long-haul.

So, what’s your beauty beverage of choice?

P.s I did lose weight drinking the Apple Cider Vinegar we talked about several posts back…it curbs your appetite and I need to go back to drinking it every morning.

The Importance of Healthy Skin

Ladies never under estimate the power of healthy skin.  Caroline Issa, Sofia Sanchez Barrenechea and Julia Restoin Roitfeld are living examples I try my best to emulate.

Why? Because as we get older we would rather be out and about exploring the world and end up shifting our priorities. Demanding careers, motherhood and the pressures of family and relationships come into play.  Not to mention self-confidence, it’s just another perk.

These thoughts came to mind today because although I’ve seen pictures of Sofia and Julia all dolled out, I rarely see photos of Caroline Issa in well applied full-blown makeup, come to think of it not many exist or get published in my online media searches.

Carolina shows us that it’s okay to walk out of our door bare-faced, or with a light BB cream and touch of crimson and not much else.

Remember that makeup is supposed to enhance our features, not cover our skin like a mask.

Personally since I had been dealing with eye issues, I’ve become accustomed to skipping mascara, I’m okay now if I’m running late and I just skip it entirely every so often.

What about you?

Red Red by Butter London

City Girl in Red Lipstick – Paloma Picasso, Jewelry Designer

Lifestyle

23_picasso-theredlistI found two articles online today on the WSJ.com and  both had to do with Pablo Picasso and that caused my mind to wander.

I’ve always been an admirer of Paloma and remember having owned her signature red lipstick, known as Mon Rouge.  I decided to Google her and found this quote:

“Red lips have become my signature, so when I don’t want to be recognized, I don’t wear it.” – Paloma Picasso

I actually find myself doing the same thing, only I also wear my Giants baseball hat.
