Beauty Talk

I hope you all are having a wonderful week. I thought I would share what I am loving lately as far as skin care goes. I am obsessed with doing anything I can to help my skin stay young and wrinkle free.

Replenix Antioxidant Sunscreen Moisturizer SPF 50 Plus 4 oz.

Sunscreen

This sunscreen was recommended by: The Skinny Confidential and like Lauryn, I believe Sunscreen is key to looking young and saving your skin from the sun. I preach all the time about wearing hats while your hanging outside or by the pool or whatever. Wear your sunscreen and wear a hat. You can find all the details for this swimsuit and hat here Bombshell Bikini .

Little Black Mask

Lately I have been obsessed with doing masks. I usually do them right when I get out of the shower, probably twice a week. I noticed my makeup just lays better on my face, it brightens the face, makes everything smooth and the best part is this is only $4 and I can usually get 3 applications out of this.

Details

“Yes to Tomato Charcoal Mud Mask, a super-rich, decadent mud mask with just the right amount of moisture. Perfect for acne-prone skin, this mask is formulated with charcoal and salicylic acid to detoxify and rid skin of nasty impurities while helping to keep skin clear. Kicking breakouts to the curb with your LBM little black mask has never been easier.”
InstaNatural Organic Rosehip Seed Oil - 100% Pure & Unrefined Virgin Oil - Natural Moisturizer for Face, Skin, Hair, Stretch Marks, Scars, Wrinkles & Fine Lines - Omega 6, Vitamin A & C - 4 Oz
I put this on after I wash and Tone my face. This is my HOLY GRAIL product. It has saved my skin and the wrinkle I use to have in my forehead has been minimized completely to almost non-existent.

Drugstore Makeup Favorites

I love my high end makeup products but sometimes I don’t always want to spend a fortune for them. So I was on a mission to find products that would help me achieve the same results I am used to with my high end products.

Trust me I love my Estee Lauder Foundation more than anything but I found a new gem that does an amazing job. It has a beautiful matte finish that feels like velvety soft on your skin and finishes without looking “cakey”.  It actually does what it says, and stayed on 24 hours with separating and falling off your face.

L’Oreal Makeup Here

Ardell Lashes

My absolute favorite eyelashes. Eyelashes just change your entire look. The Real Housewives love them, I love them, I try and stock up so I can have them anytime I go out. They just open up your face so much.

Highlighter

This highlighter completely surprised me in a good way. Start your highlighter from the apple of your cheek and along the top of your cheek bone all the way up to help create a glow and this will help define your bone structure.

Burt’s Bees matte lipstick

Of course you can’t leave the store without grabbing the newest product from Burt’s Bees. Any product of theirs I am a huge fan of.

Blanc - Snow White Sheer Nail Polish by Essie - Perfect for a French Manicure

Favorite White Nail Polish

No Drugstore run would be complete without getting some nail polish. I am hooked on white nail polish. It looks so clean and crisp anytime of the year but especially during the summer, it makes everything pop. You can see it in the picture I posted above. The eyelashes and White nails just change your whole look.

I hope you ladies enjoy  my drugstore finds.

Hope your having a wonderful week! Thank you for stopping by.

Tiffany Blue + My Fave Tanning Product

img_3217  img_3206 img_2105

Outfit details:

Tiffany Blue Express Sweater , JCrew Denim Shorts , Chambray Romper , Kendra Scott Necklace

Now that summer is fast approaching and your wearing short shorts, tanks, exposing more skin; there is nothing better than finding the perfect tanning product to feel like a Sun Goddess. Not to mention the emotional effects it has on the brain. You instantly feel like you lost 10 pounds, you look healthy and at no cost to your health you can have the perfect tan.

I love this quote, it went something like: “You should always be tan as if you will run into your ex.” LOL

The tanning product I am absolutely obsessed with right now is St. Tropez mousse self tanner. I haven’t made the purchase before because I didn’t want to spend the money. Since I was happy with the results from the other tanning products I love but now that I have, it will be so hard not to buy this everytime. I bought the 1.69oz and have gotten 2 overall body applications and there is still a little left. Costing $18.00 I think this is well worth every penny. I used the MIT below , just put the tanner directly on the MIT and apply in circular motions. It is effortless to apply, streak free, odorless, it dries soooo fast and looks so natural. Can’t stress enough how amazing this product is.

St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse, 8 fl. oz.

St. Tropez Tanning Mousse

St. Tropez Applicator Mitt

Mit Applicator

Jergens Natural Glow + Firming Moisturizer, Fair to Medium Skin Tones, 7.5 Ounce

Jergens Natural Glow Tanner

I have been using this for years. I like the firming lotion one, I’ll take any help I can get, haha. But there isn’t a scent to this, thank goodness and you get that nice glowy tan look. Again, inexpensive.

Loreal Tanning Towelettes

These towelettes are inexpensive, easy to apply and have vitamin E and other oils that won’t dry out your skin.

Have a fabulous weekend! As always, Thank you so much for stopping by. Any questions or things you would like to see or for me to research let me know.

10_oz_beauty_green_-_base

Beauty Greens Here

I got a lot of feedback on this swimsuit and wanted to throw it up on the blog for you all quickly. I ordered a size Large for size reference, the fit is great , the texture feels rich , not thin and cheap. It has a very 60’s vibe to it. Which I love, think Bridgette Bardot.  It’s from Target and for a steal of $40. Yes, please add to cart. Haha.

I am going on a cruise soon with my girlfriends and I can not wait to rock this swimsuit there, throw on some cute jean shorts and a floppy hat and you are good to go!

In addition to buying swimsuits I have put a lot of effort into becoming bikini ready by hitting the gym hard using the This workout app, I can not say enough good things about it. When I go to the gym (or home, outside) I have a plan and it will kick your butt and you will start to see a difference in your body. The app is incredible. Every week a new workout plan, A meal plan (with a grocery list) i highly recommend it.

Also the Flat Tummy Tea I drink daily and use the cleanse 2x a week. Plus all of my normal vitamin regimen. Also added drinking the Beauty greens daily. Check those out, amazing stuff.

Have a great Friday and wonderful weekend!

January Favorites for Beauty

Hi Ladies, How are you? How was your weekend?

Mine was a blur…..literally. Had too much fun with my girlfriend Emily. Dancing, Brunching, hitting up our gym hot tub. Tough life right? Ha.

Speaking of friends, my girlfriends and I have been talking a lot about makeup and so naturally I wanted to share all of my makeup favorites right now with you. Half of my ideas are from talking to my girlfriends, it helps me know what women want to talk about, see and read, they are my very own inspiration. Below are links to all of my January favorites.



  img_0746 

Eye Shadow Palette Here

I think I am such a sucker for cute packaging and this tartelette in bloom palette does not disappoint. So cute right? It’s more Golds, Browns and soft pinks, Light eyes or Dark Eyes this palette works for every girl. The eyeshadows themselves are so soft and pigmented, I use a paint pot primer from MAC before I apply eye shadow and this will help it last all day.

MAC Bronzer: Give Me SUN

On my last visit to NYC the girls at the MAC store on 5th Ave suggested this bronzer and now I’m obsessed. The perfect golden tone. I will be using this for a long time. It goes on so smooth and lasts!!!!

Best Cat Eye – Eyeliner

What it is:
A dual-ended eyeliner with waterproof liquid and pencil eyeliners

What it does:
“Define eyes like a pro with this triple-black, 12-hour eyeliner. It features two versatile formulas for a flawless, sculpted stare. Tightly line and contour eyes with the velvety smooth, twist-up pencil liner, powered by Amazonian clay to glide on like silk but wear like iron™. It perfectly traces along the lash line and inner rim, filling in spaces and enhancing the appearance of lash volume instantly. The long-wearing liquid liner on the opposite end has a precision tarteist tip and hydrating, quick-dry formula that paints on pigment and creates a crisp or dramatic wing. The double-ended formulas can be paired together for a sleek, sexy, smoky eye look that lasts.”

Under Eye Brightener

I kept reading from a ton of fashion and beauty bloggers about the miracle concealer / brightener formula. I bought it, LOVE IT. Will never use anything else. Once you apply it those dark circles and purple veins disappear. It brightens everything and makes your eye look soooo smooth.

MAC Foundation

The weather here in Virginia made me have to rethink my foundation. I usually wear DoubleWear by Estee Lauder and I will once the summer comes but my skin need hydration. This foundation is gel based so it doesn’t sink into your skin and leave you dry it does the opposite. It has a satin like finish and leaves you feeling hydrated.

Primer Mascara , Mascara

I put on two coats of primer and then use the Better Than Sex by Too Faced Mascara and your lashes will love you. Just do it. I promise you won’t regret it. I learned this trick from my favorite beauty blogger.

BEST Highlighter

Allure Magazine and Vogue both said this was the best face highlighter in makeup right now and they weren’t lying. It’s so pigmented, light, velvety like texture that makes you shine like fairies sprinkled pixie dust on you, but in a sexy way, ha.

Urban Decay Setting Spray

Once you have applied all your beautiful makeup use this spray to set it in place. Think Hairspray but hydrating and helps your makeup stay in place. I love it.

Rosehip Oil

You can apply this Anti-Aging oil every night before bed. I am fine with getting older, I quite like it actually. But I don’t want my body or skin to show it. This oil I use every night to help combat wrinkles, fine lines, smoothing out your skin tone. It does wonders. Also, use a dab of it under your makeup on your forehead and cheeks to get a dewy, hydrated look under makeup (not a lot, just a dab, goes a long way)

Don’t forget that the best way to look your best is how you feel on the inside. Be KIND to yourself. Talk to yourself like you would your friends. Change that narrative in your head to be positive. Your allowed to tell yourself I love the way this looks and makes me feel. Don’t forget that. Lead with love and the world will be a much better place and you’ll have a kick ass Cat Eye while doing it too.

Thanks for stopping by.

XOXO

From The Inside Out


As I was eating my spinach salad this afternoon and thinking how much I love eating healthy because it makes me feel so GOOD! You know when you go to the gym it makes you want to eat better because you just worked your butt off and you don’t want to ruin it. I love that feeling.

How you feel on the inside will reflect on the outside. Just as in the picture above happiness will always find you by taking care of your body. I believe a big part of that comes from what we eat. It fuels our bodies to LIVE to do the things we love.

So I did a little research on the  Health Benefits of Spinach and let’s just say I now want spinach on the daily and hopefully you will too!

So here are the Benefits:

Low in fat and even lower in cholesterol, spinach is high in niacin and zinc, as well as protein, fiber, vitamins A, C, E and K, thiamin, vitamin B6, folate, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, copper, and manganese. In other word, it’s loaded with good things for every part of your body!

Abundant flavonoids in spinach act as antioxidants to keep cholesterol from oxidizing and protect your body from free radicals, particularly in the colon. The folate in spinach is good for your healthy cardiovascular system, and magnesium helps lower high blood pressure. Studies also have shown that spinach helps maintain your vigorous brain function, memory and mental clarity.

I started with Spinach, Avocado (half), cucumber, tuna, balsamic and olive oil. With  Red pepper chili flakes, turmeric powder, Chia seeds! So Filling, so good for you.

You have to get in the mind set that your body will carry you through to your last breath so you need to fuel it properly. Take care of it, give your body the things it needs to do the things you love. Plus stacking the odds in your favor doesn’t hurt anyone. It’s better to pay now for preventive care than to pay when you get diagnosed with some type of cancer.

Ok, enough with the heavy…….I just get so passionate about this subject. GET your greens in peeps.

 

 Chia Seeds ,Turmeric Powder , Red Pepper Flakes

 Read This for All Benefits of Turmeric – It’s God’s Gift to earth, it’s anti-aging properties, immune boosting , antioxidants power is unlike anything else.

As always Thank You for taking the time to stop by and reading my page, which I hope provides a few good tips for being the BEST you can be.

Target Favorites

I hope you all are having a great week.

I am currently working on post for a morning routine. My new goal is to get up earlier than I currently do for work to help me accomplish more in the morning and feel ready for the day. I’ve been reading the Miracle Morning – Click Here and it has completely changed the way I used to feel about waking up. More to come on this topic.

For now a couple of things that I am loving and have incorporated into my morning routine of getting ready. All available at TARGET, I’ve always said, “if you can’t find me just go look in Target.” haha.

So let’s get to it:

 

 

Click Here for Vitamins

I love these gummie vitamins for Hair, Skin and Nails (HSN). I love that you don’t have to eat anything before or after taking them and they have a light hint of a grapefruit flavor. I don’t usually like grapefruit but this taste soooo good. So while I’m doing my makeup I take two of these and as you can see my hair is getting Long, I contribute that to these vitamins. Please note that any vitamin takes a least a month to get into your system to see results. So stick with them.

c4

This stuff is AMAZING! I take it 30 minutes before I workout and when I’m at the gym my energy just doesn’t stop. It makes me want to do more. Usually towards the end of my workouts I’m ready to go but not when I take this.  I get the fruit punch kind it taste so good. 1 scoop to 6oz  of water and you are good to go. Trust me! Buy it!

C4 Pre Workout Powder Here

eos shaving cream

Click Here for Shaving Cream

So I used to not care about shaving cream that much. I mean you put it on for less than a minute and then shave your legs why pay anything more than what is on sale. But I decided to pay the extra 1.50 to get this shaving cream and well, I just won’t buy anything else again but this. I feel like my shave last longer and my legs feel so moisturized and smoother.

lip blam eos

Click Here for Lip Balm

I have this on my night stand, in my purse, at my desk at work. I LOVE this lip balm. And it’s cute right?

lip color revoln

Click Here for Lip Color

 I follow Kylie Jenner on Snap Chat and she was showcasing her new line of lipstick colors and because I can never seem to get one I found this shade at target that is so close to the one she just debuted: the peach one. Revlon shade in Embrace #640. I love the peach/pink tone and this formula feels like you bought an expensive lipstick but you pay so much less. And it stays on for a while you don’t have to reapply to often. I love that!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Have a fabulous day!

Sephora Favorites

I hope everyone had a great weekend. On Saturday friends of mine helped take some photos for an upcoming fashion post I’m working on and I can’t wait to share that with you. Until then I wanted to share some of my favorite products that I picked up at Sephora this weekend. I was inspired by this photo of Blake Lively to find the perfect Red Lipstick and I think I did.

 

 

Dior Lips

Dior Lip Maximizer

I choose the lip enhancer because it does not STING when you put it on. The girls in the Sephora store also mentioned after 15 days you will start to notice a difference in your pout. It was a no brainier for me.

eyebrows Anastasia Beverly Hills Pomade

To get a good Eyebrow you need Anastasia! Kim Kardashian gets her eyebrows done by the one and only everyday, but for the rest of us picking up the miracle for eyebrows in the bottle at the store will have to do for now. Waterproof and Smudge-free formula that I am obsessed with. The color I have is called: Taupe.

red lips

American Doll Red Lipstick

The Best RED Lipstick you’ll ever buy. Especially for Blondes. It has a blue under tone formula that gives you the BEST red you’ll ever buy and it’s so pigmented.

altitude-attitude

Essie Nail Polish

 We all know and Love Essie and I’m sucker for REDS. They just make you look empowered, put together an confident. Plus everyone looks good in RED.

Essie Nail Polish in: Attitude Attitude

Happy Monday! I hope you all are having a great week and as always Thank you so much for reading and stopping by!

I Don’t Do Wrinkles

night time products

Here’s to staying Young, Wild and Free!

One of my girlfriends called me recently and said, “Tiff, did you do Botox?” I said, “I would love to but not yet.” I’m trying to do everything I can before I turn to Botox.

Below is a list of tricks I do everyday to try and keep wrinkles at bay and take care of my skin from the inside out.

Easy, budget friendly items that you can get off of amazon or your local grocery store.

  1. Drink Water – I use this water bottle that I picked up from Kayla Itsines website   Click here  – Kayla has an amazing app that you can download onto your smartphone and workout at home or anywhere without a gym and she is amazing. This water bottle is equal to 1 Liter. I make a point to take it everywhere and drink 1 of these in the morning and again in the afternoon. (notice the Rose` in the background, everything in moderation right?) ha 🙂

water bottle

2. Peppermint Tea – Click here to purchase on amazon. The health benefits of peppermint tea are insane. If you suffer from IBS you need this daily. I usually drink one cup every night after dinner or laying in bed watching BravoTV Housewives.

3. Sleep – Never underestimate the power of getting your sleep on. “If you sleep better, you can certainly live better. It’s pretty clear.” You need at least 8 hours. Your body does all it’s magic while you sleep.

4. Apple Cider Vinegar is LIFE CHANGING. I add 2 Tablespoons with the juice of a lemon wedge to in an 8oz glass of water EVERY MORNING and you can do it after dinner too. I drink this every morning now while I’m making my egg sandwich on an whole wheat English muffin, fried hard egg, tomato slice and american cheese.

Apple cider vinegar UNFILTERED benefits are amazing. 1) It helps break down fats. 2) Balances Blood Sugar Levels. 3) Good for getting rid of colds 3) Improve Energy levels, extreme stress or strenuous exercise can lead to the buildup of lactic acid that makes you feel tired. Apple cider vinegar contains certain amino acids, potassium and other enzymes that help treat fatigue. 4.)Good for digestion 5.) Help with leg cramps. There are so many benefits. Just buy and thank me later! 🙂 Spectrum Organic Apple Cider Vinegar 473 Olive Oil

5. Cold Pressed Olive Oil – why is that a good thing: When the manufacturer is making the Olive Oil the temperature must not go over 120°F . By maintaining a lower temperature during production, the oil retains all its aroma, flavor and nutrients.

Turmeric Powder: I sprinkle this on everything!!!!!! Salads, Avocado Toast (which I also add red pepper flakes to), Smoothies, Everything! Turmeric is known for aiding in: Arthritis Management, Anti-Depressant, Cancer Prevention, Skin Protection and Brain Health and Memory Promotion. You need this in your life!

6. Self-Tanning Towelettes Click here                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          I don’t know about you but I always feel better when I am tan. Your clothes just look better on you! You look and feel Skinny! These are just too easy to use and at a great price point. Easy to travel with too!

7. Click here for the Oil that will change your life Rosehip seed oil I put this on my face every night before I go to bed. This is Heaven on Earth in a bottle. Plus I think it’s around $20.00! You can’t beat that!

8. Exercise and Mindfulness you must do this daily or at least 5 times a week. Let’s be honest if I can workout 3 to 4 days a week I’m doing good. But I aim to break a sweat everyday. Kate Hudson brought mindfulness to my attention. I linked the book below. I use it as my bible now for feeling and looking your best without putting too many expectations on yourself.

9. Stay out of the SUN except when you find a Duck Float at the pool, ha 🙂 But seriously, you will never find me laying by the pool, out in the sun without my BIG floppy hats or a baseball hat. The sun feels nice but not on your face, let alone your whole body. A little bit of Vitamin D is good for your overall well being but keep it limited.

10. Eat your greens Click here for greens

  • Premium natural blend for a beautiful glow that begins from within
  • Nourishing elixir combines marine collagen peptides with raw organic greens, hyaluronic acid, and probiotics
  • Offers a natural coconut flavor made from organic coconut water and the finest Madagascar vanilla beans
  • Improves skin’s moisture, smoothness, and tone

your greens

Lastly, I learned so much from reading Kate Hudson’s Book. I bought the actual paper book and the Audio Version. Her voice is so calming and I listen to it whenever i want to refer back to something quickly. I listen to it at the gym, in my car or getting ready.  YOU WILL LOVE IT!

Click here for Kate Hudson’s Book

pretty happy book

I hope you all enjoyed this post. Please comment and let me know what you think and if you would like more on this subject. Also let me know what products you try and like.
