Neutrogena Back-To-School Autumn Makeup

My back-to-school planning consists of a morning routine that involves doing multiple things at once to save time! I currently live in Nashville, and the traffic congestion seems to triple as soon as all the schools are back in session! I’ve been out of Uni for a few years but I still have a back-to-school routine to ensure I look and feel my best before rushing out the door to get to the office on time! My sensitive skin needs constant TLC, so skipping my skin care products before applying makeup is a no-no, even if I’m in a rush! Thank goodness for Neutrogena® SkinClearing® makeup! I’m able to apply my foundation, concealer and setting powder while nourishing my skin with dermatologist developed formula that boosts the power of salicylic acid by breaking through oil and unclogging pores for fast acne relief. Having clear skin gives me confidence, and when I feel confident, I look my best!

As Summer ends, and school is back in session, I’m always moved by the beautiful jewel tones of the changing Fall leaves! The tutorial I’m showing you today is my fail-proof, wear-to-school-or-work, Autumn-inspired makeup look!

How I Do 10 Minute Non-Surgical Face Lifts AT HOME!

10 Minute DIY Face Lift Tutorial // Facial Cupping

I’m a natural skeptic. I’ve lived a little too long to believe in miracle ‘creams,’ ‘treatments’ and ‘pills’… I believe real results are achieved through hard work and science. There’s a reason some things work and others don’t. When you give your body what it needs you can expect it to respond in a pleasing way! Eat a balanced diet, don’t starve yourself, get some exercise, make sure you have healthy blood flow — all of this is common sense. All that being said, I’m still not sure why I was surprised when this thousands of years old technique WORKED on ME! What I’m about to show you is something I’ve been doing 2x per week, 10 minutes each time, for the last 5 weeks. All you need to do is scroll back through some of my older posts and see the difference in my facial structure between then and now. It’s ridiculous. I haven’t gained or lost any weight. I haven’t changed my eating or exercise habits. The only change is this simple, $30, at-home FACE LIFTING technique!

4 Time-Saving Kitchen Gadgets Under $25!

My dream life consists of getting up at 6am and having a good hour to make, sit down, and eat a beautiful breakfast, sip my coffee and read the paper, all while still in my dressing gown.

I will probably never reach my nirvana bliss, but that doesn’t mean I can’t still have breakfast, a healthy lunch prepped for mid-day, and my morning coffee before arriving at the office! Today I’m sharing with you 4 (cheap!) kitchen appliances that make make busy mornings feel more productive and efficient!

Trying a $700 Lifting Cream?!


It seems natural to have high expectations for a product with a high price tag, so needless to say, my hopes were through the roof after accepting an offer from D’or 24K to test their Non-Surgical Lifting Innovation Syringe! At $700 for 0.5 oz. this is something one hopes to see immediate results from using — and good heavens is that what I got! While I personally cannot justify spending that amount on a face cream with my (still young!) 29 year old skin, I can definitely see the benefit for someone who is nearing 40 or 50 and considering alternatives to that impending first face lift or botox injection! The most magical part about this cream was the IMMEDIATE effect. It’s almost worth the price just to experience watching your face Benjamin Button 10 years! For me, that meant seeing my 17 year old face again, and lord was it trippy! You can see from the photo below the obvious difference in the before and after appearance of my skin. Read More
