Winter can be an adventurous season filled with skiing, snowboarding and hiking, but you don’t even have to do these extreme sports to get dry, chapped hands. Sometimes all it takes is forgetting to wear your gloves when you run errands and then you’re left to deal with flaky, rough hands. So how do you revive the skin on your hands overnight? More »
I learned of the Tweezerman Extractor while receiving a facial in Austin, Texas last year. For those who’ve never had an extraction facial, basically it involves the beautician removing any blackheads or blemishes from your skin in the least damaging way possible.
Here’s how it works: Cleanse your face with warm water (not hot…you don’t want to dry out or damage your skin, merely open up the pores). This could also be done right after you hop out of the shower. More »
I’m obsessed with things that look beautiful from the inside out, and it definitely shows in my bathroom. Even though I have too much makeup and hair products, I still organize them in stylish trays, baskets and bags. Not only does this make my life simple when I’m looking for my products, it also just makes me feel good to have adorable makeup bags to stash in my purse or take on trips. More »
For this week’s YouTube tutorial, I actually tried out the method being taught! Water marbling is how you can create a tie-dye sort of look on your nails, and it is actually a lot of fun to do! You can see my results above, which actually look a lot cooler in real life. It’s hard to take pictures without good lighting! I did two “accent” nails as the video suggests, because I didn’t have the time to do my full hands. More »

It’s no secret that Sephora is a leader (if not the leader) in beauty in the U.S. I’ve been shopping there for years, and I’ve always been impressed by the level of customer service that I received while shopping. My grandfather always used to say that when he was a newlywed shopping in department stores for my grandmother that the sales people would bring him a chair and a drink while they went to find the perfect gift — now that’s service!
Anyway, the sales people at Sephora aren’t pushy, but they know their stuff when you need them. Today, I was on a mission to find a new under eye concealer, and I was so happy when I walked out of the store, that I felt the need to share! More »
Proactive is one of those companies that does a really good job with their marketing campaigns. Clear, acne-free skin is something we all want when it comes to our beauty routines.

In addition to sporting a totally cool updo and a sexy gown that revealed a little peek of a lacy slip underneath, she also rocked some awesome forest green nail polish! More »
