Ok, so I was introduced to Gilded Cells about 2 weeks ago when I was attending an event that they were promoting at.  I left with a full size sample of the Under Eye Multi-Complex Serum and I am officially obsessed.  I saw immediate results in an area I’ve battled most of my life…under-eye bags and dark circles.  I can’t wait to try the rest of their line!




GILDED CELLS is a clinical skincare brand delivering anti-aging innovation that utilizes the cells own molecular machinery to not only stop aging but to reverse it as well.  GILDED CELLS was born from a group of scientists at the California Institute of Quantitative Biosciences (qb3) in San Francisco, California, USA.


Utilizing compounds implicated in inhibiting cell signaling pathways that regulate cell aging and senescence, we developed enhanced formulations that not only increase skin vitality, repair age associated damage and skin texture but our formulations initiate the processes that reverse aging.   Our biotechnology delivers unprecedented, scientifically validated anti-aging benefits to the skin and can be used by the most sensitive of skin types.

GILDED CELLS is a member of the California Institute of Quantitative Biosciences (qb3) and the Janssen Innovator Labs.  Proudly made in the USA.

Sea Of Pearls

unnamed (1)

I has the incredible opportunity to interview, Geneveive Cruz, designer of Sea Of Pearls. I am in love with the casual and laid back feel of her designs.  They are the perfect essentials that you will want to wear everyday.  You can dress them up or down without compromising your comfort.  ;-)  Here’s the interview!

Q:  Why did you decide to become a fashion designer? Fashion runs in my family.

A:  My whole family from my mother to my father to my aunts and uncles are in the fashion industry.  My parents owned a clothing factory and I always tell people as a joke that I was born in a Factory.  So long story short, it’s kind of in my blood…  LOL

Q:  What does fashion mean to you?

A:  It’s all I breathe…  I wake up thinking fashion and go to sleep thinking fashion.  I believe that fashion is what you make of it. I don’t feel there should be rules.  I believe fashion trends fade and true fashion is what you make of it and should make you feel GREAT!

Q:  What is your favorite part about being a fashion designer?

A:  The creation process.  I love starting all my collections with a theme and everything just ­flows from color, styles, all the way to the way we style it.

Q:  Where does your inspiration come from for the designs you create?

A:  Inspiration is everywhere.  Music, movies, family, people in the streets, but the true inspiration is my daughter.  She has always been my toughest customer, LOL!

Q:  What sets your designs apart from the rest of the industry?

A:  PASSION, but again everyone should have that.  I believe that every brand is unique.

Q:  How do you select the materials you use?

A:  Made in the USA with the biggest knitters around fabric must be soft and super comfortable.

Q:  What do you do to ensure the durability of your products?

A:  We garment dye every piece to assure softness and wear.

Q:  What advice would you give somebody who wants to work as a fashion designer in the future?

A:  Experience.  Always try to intern and work with someone who can really teach you and guide you before you try to branch out on your own.  And if you are sensitive and soft spoken, this is FOR sure the wrong industry for you.

Q:  How would you describe your personal style?

A:  Super Casual with a edge.  I’m the most happiest with a Tee, jeans and great pair of shoes.

Q:  What are your plans for the future?

A:  Everyday is a another goal.  I set short term goals all the day, so when I accomplish them I feel like I’m doing something right.  Plans are for Every Woman to feel like a PEARL!  :)

It’s like I got this music in my mind…


, , ,


My dad is a woodworking genius and has built tons of amazing things, such as furniture, toys, wine racks, decorative pieces, etc…  But, this one of my faves!  It’s a stand and acoustic speaker for your iPhone!  It has amazing sound amplification with no electricity necessary.  This handcrafted dock is the perfect accessory for home, office or wherever.  The sound from the iPhone’s built-in speakers gets sent through channels in the wood and out through two large holes in the front.  It is a completely power-free amplifier that can be endlessly customized to suit your style.  So cool and I’m so obsessed!!!  ;-)

This outfit made me feel like dancing, so I did!  haha….  ;-)

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.


Caudalie Vinexpert Firming Serum – $89.00

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


ARCONA Wine Hydrating Mask – $40.00

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


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!!!  ;-)
