Wine Beauty

Ok, ok…  So, dabbing wine directly on your face may not produce the ideal results.  However, I recently went in for a “Wine Detox” facial and had amazing results!  Since there’s nothing I love more than enjoying a nice glass of wine (or bottle ;-)) with friends & family, I thought, I must try it.  After all, if it does the same thing for my skin as it does for my spirit, it’s a total win!  I left my wine facial with glowing skin, so I decided to seek out products that I could use at home that produce similar results.  Here’s what I found…

PÜRMINERALS Wine Exfoliating Mask – $29.00

Watch lines, dark spots and uneven skin fade from sight as ingredients work to reveal a visibly more youthful glow.

WineMask

Caudalie Vinexpert Firming Serum – $89.00

Visibly restructures skin so that it regains its firmness and elasticity, while visibly diminishing fine lines and wrinkles.

Caudalie

ARCONA Wine Hydrating Mask – $40.00

Moisture-binding mask to nourish and replenish dry, dehydrated, depleted skin.

_6182149

Lastly, I found a really amazing recipe for an at home wine facial that left my skin feeling tight, soft & glowing.  Here it is!

1 tbsp raw organic honey

1 tbsp greek yogurt

1 tbsp red wine

Mix and  leave on your face for 5 minutes.

Wa…La….  Beautiful, glowing skin!!!  ;-)

This is hands down one of my favorite collaborations yet!  Like most women, I am obsessed with Victoria’s Secret.  I was able to put their “Incredible” sports bra and “Knockout” cropped bottoms to the test.  They definitely passed the test!  I have never experienced support, comfort or kept cool like this before with any other workout wear.

As you know, a proper fitting sports bra is the most essential part of your workout wardrobe and this one is designed for performance perfection.  VS sports bras are designed to be true to size, which means that you will wear the same size sports bra as you do in lingerie.  As always, you can stop into any Victoria’s Secret shop for a free bra fitting!

As for the cropped workout pant, all I can say is, “AMAZING”!  They feel like a second skin and kept me cool an dry throughout my workout.  They also give a little lift in the butt area for some added confidence while working out.  I’m in love!  ;-)

Happy Labor Day loves!!  ;-)

For me, today was a day of relaxation and rejuvenation with a focus on my health, my career and my beloved boo.  Of course with a little fashion inspiration!  Everything here is vintage, except for the Steve Madden sandals.  I love this pink lace mini paired with the army green jacket and peace sign scarf.  The pink lace definitely softens the rough & tough army jacket and the peace sign scarf adds a little edge into the mix.  Along with the gold chain embellished sandals, this was a match made in fashion heaven.  ;-)

I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend celebration!

Have a great week!

The Milwaukee-born, Brooklyn-based singer is about to debut her second album titled, “The Refinery”, which is out October 7.  If you didn’t know, now you know (and you should ;-))…  She is often labeled as an “Old Soul” and for good reason.  Grace’s music is grounded in powerful soul, roots and gospel sounds, with her voice and songwriting as the centerpiece.  I can’t wait to see her on the 14th of October in LA!!!!

Never Grow Sober

, , , ,

I’ve always had a thirst for life, adventure, and good wine shared with good people.  I am obsessed with these new accessories!  Perfect for the #thirstygirl I am!  ;-)

swell_bottle

This is the ultimate #thirstygirl accessory.  The sophisticated 25 oz. bottle keeps your drinks cold for 24 hours and hot for 12 hours.  The wide mouth allows for ice cubes and drip-free sipping.  Most importantly though, this #thirstygirl bottle also conveniently holds an entire bottle of wine!

wine_tote

The Borracha Decanter features a measurement table to ensure you pour the perfect glass every time.  Hmm…  I think test tube wine glasses would compliment this very nicely.  ;-)

wine-wipes-compact

My new best friend!  These teeth protecting Wine Wipes come with a mirrored compact.  The stain red wine leaves on your teeth is notably unattractive.  With these wipes, you’ll never be called “tannin’ teeth” again!  Wine Wipes’ orange blossom flavor also ensures that you won’t ruin your next sip.  So, wipe that wine off your smile.  ;-)

You can get yours here!

Cheers!

Alan McCune’s Book Release Party

Tags

, , ,

On Tuesday July 29th, 2014 at the Riviera 31 inside the Sofitel Hotel in Beverly Hills, author, Alan McCune, celebrated the launch of his anticipated debut novel, “Annabella and the Secret of the Mirrors”.  I left with a copy of the book in hand and I could not put it down once I started reading it.  A definite MUST READ!

the essence of it

Annabella and the Secret of the Mirrors is a tale set in another world where society is divided by the color of your eyes and the Ministry rules with a promise of Coneyesion – but only if you serve with loyalty, dedication and commitment to their ways.  In this world, mirrors are banned because of their dangerous secret properties, but yet the wind brings whispers of their existence and untold powers.  Annabella’s life seemed normal until she was forced into a journey of self- discovery.  On this journey – one that few girls her age could survive – she is thrust into a world of pain and solitude, yet it is her courage and curiosity that will lead Annabella towards an unimaginable future.  Along the way, Annabella learns that faith, hope and fear are what can kill you, and yet these emotions also keep you alive. She faces demons she never knew existed, and even some within herself that haven’t yet bared their teeth.  This is a story that will make you fall in love with a warrior in the making – or maybe a demon slowly being unleashed.

annabella

In addition to a book signing by the author, Alan McCune, there was a live fashion exhibit featuring Sue Wong’s Fall 2014 Edwardian Romance Collection and Vilaiwan Fine Jewelry.  DJ Pickel was in charge of the music, Tarot readings by celebrity psychic Julie Rose from Live.Love.Tarot and Magic by Paul Fegen from America’s Got Talent.  Christopher Grant, the artist behind the cover of “Annabella and the Secret of the Mirrors”, also made an appearance.  Starlooks Makeup was there for red carpet touch-ups and they handed out goody bags, which included a beautiful green eye liner that I am now obsessed with.

It was a night to remember and Alan is one amazing person!  Purchase your copy of “Annabella and the Secret of the Mirrors” HERE.

Here are pics from that fabulous night, enjoy!

This time of year, we all want to feel confident in our bikini’s!  This great tasting water will help just that by easing digestion and alleviating that bloated feeling.  It’s super easy and so yummy you’ll be craving it all summer long!

Here’s the recipe!

Combine 6 cups of water, 1 tablespoon of grated ginger, 1 sliced cucumber, 1 thinly sliced lemon, and ½ cup of mint leaves.  Let the water fuse overnight and sip your “skinny water” all day to slim your tummy.

Cheers to a bloat free summer!  ;-)
