Every season I find myself changing more than a few products in my everyday makeup routine. During summer my skin tends to get more oily so I typically switch over to a shine-free matte foundation and peachier hues for blush, bronzer, lip etc. In the winter, my skin is more dry so I opt in for a more creamy/dewy foundation and warmer colors to accessorize the face ;). The one thing I try to achieve in every season (regardless of the weather conditions) is flawless skin that looks healthy, radiant and natural.

Before you go out and buy an entire …

I can’t believe I’ve been living in Los Angeles for almost 5 years. I was driving through Hollywood Boulevard the other day (to get to an appointment) and I had one of those flash back moments from when I first visited LA. I was 18 or so and remember REALLY wanting to see as much as I can. From the Hollywood Walk of Fame and Beverly Hills sign to walking down Rodeo Drive pretending I was Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. When you visit a city like LA, there’s so much you want to see while soaking everything in.

Back to life. Back to reality. I find it crazy how one day I am in one part of the world and the next day I’m on the opposite side. The minute I arrived in Dubai last week, I knew it was going to be a trip of a lifetime. I mentioned in this morning’s newsletter that this trip was so memorable and for so many reasons. I was there for the FIRST Simply Stylist Dubai conference which gave me the opportunity to speak to a room filled with young women about my career in digital and even some personal …

Stevie and I decided we were going book a trip to Alaska after talking about the things we wanted to do before we have kids (nothing cooking in the belly yet, just thinking ahead here!). I’m always distracted with something, whether it’s Sweetie or work projects, so  I knew if this trip was going to happen, Stevie would need to make it happen for the both of us. Stevie started researching things and decided to surprise me with an Alaskan Adventure! The best part? I told him not to tell me anything we were going to do, because for once …

6 Tips For Packing Makeup

Beauty Travel | August 11, 2016

Summer is almost over, but that doesn’t mean the traveling has to stop! Stevie and I are going out of town today for 2 weeks, but before we go I have to share a fun fact about me when I’m traveling.

One of the toughest things about traveling is condensing my makeup down to JUST one bag. I instantly go into sudden panic mode.

I’m not a diva when I travel, so I for me it’s the thought of forgetting something I might need so I over-pack. I think most girls can relate with me there. After countless trips and …

During our West Coast adventure, we stopped in San Francisco to explore and take pictures for the day! If you’re a subscriber to my newsletter, then you saw yesterday’s talking about the crazy weather and blooper moments we had. When I finally found the perfect little spot to hang out and snap some pictures, I was too nervous to take my leather jacket off because it was so windy! (I was not wearing a bra!)

I love San Francisco but…..A serious Note to self: Always layer up when you’re in the bay area.

Here’s how to Get the Look:
