Winter is just around the corner and Christmas will soon arrive. Whether you’ve been naughty or nice, you simply won’t have to think twice about this most-wanted intoxicating gift. So get ready, make a list and sit this one right on top of it. You never know, Santa may sneak it under your tree or you can purchase and gift it to someone else for free.
I’m so in love with the the new BVLGARI Wood Essence so much that I stole it from my husband. The fragrance is so fresh, bold yet daringly sensual: blending Italian citrus with woody, earthy notes. I am completely enamored by the luxurious notes of this fragrance. It also makes the perfect mens gift for Christmas, Valentine’s Day and birthdays. The scent is very long lasting, addicting and tolerable. Ladies, have you ever wore men’s fragrance? If not, what features would you look for in a mens fragrance you’re willing to try? Happy Holidays Everyone! Don’t forget to shop this fragrance and my look below.

I’m back! 🙂
I decided to take a break from my blog once I was diagnosed with the flu back in December, right before Christmas Eve. I literally needed that break and it was so overdue. Most of all, I’m really glad to finally get over the flu in the past couple weeks because darling it was awful. Its great to take a break for self once in a while so you can focus on just you and reevaluate, meditate and re prioritize things.
Last weekend, I started a new series on my instagram #SkinLoveSaturday which I will be posting there and here about all my skincare essentials, while providing you skincare tips and natural remedies to facilitate with improving your skin/skin conditions such as acne etc. I’m super excited about this because I love taking care of my skin from the inside out. Speaking of skin, one of the most FAQ’s that people ask me is what is my skincare regime? I’ve spoken about this exact same question two years ago so I think its time to revisit and let my new supporters know my number one skincare line.
I’ve been using Dermalogica for 15 years and it has always kept my skin looking flawless. Dermalogica is literally my holy grail. I was first introduced to it by one of my best friends, Adoria, and I haven’t stopped using it till this day. It’s one of the best things that ever happened to my skin. What I really love about their products is that they aren’t tested on animals, and you can see results as immediately following the first use. I remember when I first tried it and I recall telling Adoria: “Omg! I can’t believe how amazing my skin feels right now… it’s so soft.” It felt hydrated and within the first week I threw out all the other stuff I was using and replaced it with all Dermalogica Skincare products.
The special cleansing gel, skin prep scrub, multi-active toner and skin smoothing cream are my main go to daily essentials. I love how calming and refreshing the gel is on my skin which is very soothing. The toner is like a great moisturizer prep. It hydrates my skin so good and the skin smoothing cream asborbs so much better once you apply this. Lastly, the skin smoothing cream has great antioxidants, promotes elasticity and leaves my skin feeling smooth and looking flawless. Keep in mind that their are so many different skin types out there, so you might need something different from me. No problem there because dermalogica also carries different lines for your skin needs. Skin can also change depending on the season. My skin type is “combination” but mostly dry in the winter. Check out all the amazing products they carry on their website to fit your skin type.
I will talk about more of their products that I use in other upcoming posts; like the gentle cream exfoliant, one of my absolute favs-I use it once a week. I’m really picky when it comes to testing out new skincare from other brands but I have tried others some works, some don’t. Dermalogica have never failed me and it will always be my number one. Remember, take care of your skin from within. Eating healthy, drinking plethora of water, exercising and eating loads of tomatoes makes taking care of your skin on the outside so much easier. Have a great weekend my loves.
#SkinLoveSaturday Tip : Eating Watermelon can help reduce acne breakouts and keep skin healthier.

I’m back with some of my favorite, luxurious, beauty must-haves and they’re definitely worth the splurge. Givenchy Beauty is one of my favorite beauty brands and their products are of great quality. They recently gifted me with Rose Ardente which is a fiery and provocative floral spicy fragrance with a sanguine and fearless allure. I am literally obsessed! It smells incredibly amazing. This will also make a wonderful gift to someone special. The packaging is so feminine and stunning. It is available at Barney’s, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Sephora.
On the other hand, Hubby is obsessed with His Gentlemen Only Absolute Fragrance. This is definitely the fragrance for the refined man of today. The Gentlemen Only Absolute man is the epitome of uncompromised class and style. This woody, spicy oriental scent has notes of sophisticated bergamot and a warm trio of incandescent spices topped with sensual vanilla and sandalwood.

As promised on my Instagram a few weeks ago, I’m here to give you my review after using Tula’s Products.
Tula products combine probiotics with other skin friendly superfoods to naturally balance and boost the health of your skin. What I love most about these products is they’re so gentle and did not dry my skin out. I loved using the exfoliating treatment mask the most. It’s so good to be honest and felt amazing against my skin. It left a smooth finish and the texture is perfection personified. I used it 2x a week. Since I’m very picky with my skin and rarely use anything other than my main skincare products I shared with you all, I am elated to have tried Tula Products and extremely satisfied with the texture and hydration effect it had on my skin. If you are looking to balance and hydrate your skin, this skincare line is a great start.

Happy Tuesday babes.
So I’m back at it again with another series of my beauty favorites right now. I’m always being asked what lipstick I’m wearing. That is the most FAQ I always get so I will answer in this post. First, let me round up a few of my lipstick favorites for you all. My signature lip color is a classic bold red that is sexy yet chic. I’ve always been into the vintage-esque lip colors and hairstyles so thats no surprise there.. well, to those of you who know me. 😉
I love Chanel Lipsticks. They’re soft, moisturizing and classic. Dior matte colors looks great on me. Dark and bold red colors mainly. I’m a Dior addict for sure. They make me stand out more. YSL beauty is another one of my favorite high end products. Their lipsticks are juicy, refined and long lasting. I recently started using some of Tom Ford beauty (not pictured) so I will let you know my thoughts on that in other future beauty post. As far as reds, I mostly wear this Chanel lip color (pictured), YSL lip color (pictured), Mac Ruby Woo and Lady Danger; Anastasia Beverly Hills Strawberry Liquid Lipstick (online), Violet Grey’s Velvet Rope Lipstick and Maybelline’s Siren In Scarlet (available online and in stores).

Just thought I’d share a few of my “must haves” in my bag. Keep in mind everything is not pictured. I’m also sharing a couple of my fall must have’s right now like these two Essie Polish colors. They’re so beautiful and remind me of the pretty leaves of the season. Colors are: maki me happy and playing koi. I always bring my Laura Mercier Smoky-the-go. It’s the perfect fit for your bag, no matter the size. I love smelling amazing wherever I go so I never leave home without one of my favorite perfume . On this post you’ll see Dolce & Gabbana -rose the one. You guys know I never leave home without my red lipstick. The red color I choose to bring each day depends on my mood. NYX Cosmetics matte perfect red is pictured on this post.
I always have a charger with me and of coarse my phone:) Sunglasses are always in my bag, sometimes two lol seriously. My Black Tom Ford is my main squeeze so I take them out more often than my other ones. 😉 This NYX Cosmetics go-to- palette is definitely a fall must have. By the way, my phone case is Kate Spade and my wallet here is Betsey Johnson. What you won’t find in my bag is half eaten lollipops even though I have two little girls. lol I simply don’t promote candy eating in my household. #healthyteethmatter
Have a wonderful weekend!:)

Sharing a few of my beauty favs for transitioning from summer to fall. These are on trend makeup that won’t bust your budget. You know Fall is right around the corner when you can almost smell Starbucks Pumpkin spice latte before its officially placed on the menu. Some of us may have already started cleaning out our closet to make room for oversized sweaters, chunky knits and our favorite hunter boots. I’m one of those people. I honestly can’t wait for fall because it’s my favorite season and by now you already learn my favorite fall drink and fall favs. 🙂
I always go for nude palette and warm tones when it comes to transitioning to Fall. I try to think of pretty fall leaves for my eyeshadow colors. For fall and winter I go a little darker with my makeup. I love using the dream catcher palette. it’s great for all seasons. The Maybeline sandstone shimmer palette is perfect for fall.
I would also like to share a couple of my favorite products to use in my nine year old daughter’s hair. This hair milk is my favorite part when doing her hair. It softens, moisturizes and promote hair growth. This entire line is so good and it smells amazing!:) Thank me later!
TIP: Lemon juice with a pinch of salt (warm) every morning lowers cholesterol levels and brings down your weight.
