Why I stopped wearing makeup

Podcast available on all platforms! XOXO



Okay, I just want to take a minute to talk about something that has been on my mind and all over the media as of late… What’s with this “human growth hormone” thing!? I actually think I’m a little behind the craze, but lately, I’ve been seeing the infomercial for the SeroVital HGH Liquid Concentrate which promises a miracle cure for aging. This product promises wrinkle reduction, increased fat burning, improved mood, better sleep, and even a heightened sex drive. I kid you not, every time I turn on the TV, I see this risk free, fountain of youth, miracle supplement flashing in front of my face, and I’ll admit I had the same thought that I’m sure every woman above the age of 25 thinks when they see the ad… “Maybe I’ll try it for 30 days and see if I notice a difference.” Right? But here’s the thing… I’m not sold. There were so many questions running through my mind, just as there are before I try a new supplement of any kind. It got me thinking… Read more

The REAL Fountain of Youth?


For any and all of us who have gone to extremes or spent countless hours in search of a magical solution to turn back the hands of time, guess what? I’m going to let you in on a little secret… Shhhh… There is a solution, and it’s not a hidden ancient mystery or a magical potion you can consume and instantly transform into a younger version of yourself. It is however a technique that people have been using for countless generations. It’s a little thing called “strength training.” Read more

For any and all ladies out there who have struggled with finding the perfect mascara, let me start by saying I feel your pain! My lashes are blonde and therefore nonexistent without mascara. To add insult to injury, they curl naturally making it almost impossible to get most mascara to apply without globs and clumps. I usually have to stick with the Maybelline and Covergirl mascara with the rubber brushes which comb out the clumps. If I have some extra cash I also really like Benefit “They’re Real” mascara which has a similar rubber applicator brush. I have to say, though that my lashes definitely still look “real” with that mascara. Which brings me to my next point… When it comes to our lashes, the bigger the better! I have always been obsessed with that big butterfly voluptuous lash look. I usually fall back on falsies if I have a special occasion to attend or go out for a night on the town with my girls. That is if I have time to apply them because let’s be honest, that’s a chore in itself. Read more

Seven Days of Samples

Summer is finally here and with the weather changing to hotter and more humid temperatures, I thought what better time to look into some different makeup options. I had been debating on changing my foundation for some time since I was going back and forth between products and my morning routine had just gotten way too dang complicated. I just could not seem to find one that worked on super humid days. A girl has needs, ya know!? Like the need for full coverage, a matte finish, and most importantly it has to last through my workouts. On most days, I’m working out at lunch and going back to my professional job the second half of the day, so I simply cannot have my makeup melting off my face. Especially considering I’m not talking minor workouts here. There are days when I’m running several miles at lunch. Intense workouts mixed with the change in weather had me up in arms. It was time for a change. So, I set out to find THE BEST foundation for humid months and girls that sweat! Continue to read what I discovered… Read more

Virgin Blogger

Well, I did it. I finally started my lifestyle blog. Aside from the desperate need to escape all of the drama and stupidity associated with that little thing called Facebook, I wanted to start a blog to share some of the knowledge I’ve picked up over the years. Because you know, like most women, when I’m right- I’m right. And when it comes to Fitness, Health, Beauty, and Lifestyle tips, I’m always right. Right? Mhmmmm smile and nod! 😉

But in all seriousness, the truth of the matter is that with the modern woman’s busy schedule in today’s society, it’s hard to juggle a career, family, social life, and stay mentally and physically healthy, fit and glamorous! Hell it’s hard enough trying to find time to wash our hair! But on top of that, we’re supposed to find healthy food alternatives, maintain impossibly youthful radiant skin, have perfect hair, get enough sleep, and find time to exercise enough so that our asses don’t hit the ground! Let’s face it ladies, we’re not getting any younger!

That’s why I decided to share some of my tricks of the trade with all of the fellow busy modern women out there.

First, let me give you a little background about yours truly:

My 8-5 career is in Marketing & Client Services for the largest Commercial Real Estate Company in the world, so I understand the pressures of a demanding job. I commute roughly 3 hours a day total, so I understand the “lack of free time” problem that a lot of people face. I’m a huge animal lover, which resulted in my choice to go vegan in 2011 and I’ve never looked back. I’m also learning more and more every day about the health benefits of that choice. My passion is Fitness (working out 6-7 days a week), and I’m always looking for the latest craze in the way of Beauty Products.

The goal of this blog is to post my latest beauty finds, since sadly the Fountain of Youth isn’t a real thing *sigh* … Share some of my delicious vegan recipes, and update all of the fitness enthusiasts out there with the best health and fitness tips to stay forever fab!

Follow me and receive all of my latest updates!

Until next time!
