Wedding planning can be, well – a nightmare. It can leave you looking like one too! Between tastings and fittings and favors, the stress of wedding planning can manifest itself all over a bride’s face (trust me, I know). Acting like bride-zilla is bad enough; there is no need to look like her too. As […]
Although I like to dole out beauty advice, I must admit I have a few bad beauty habits of my own. It’s shameful, I know, but nobody’s perfect! Besides not removing my make-up sometimes after a long night, I'm also a frequent offender of forgetting to prep my hair before bed. If I’m really tired after a busy […]
A Glam Mommy with natural beauty, Garcelle Beauvais never disappoints with her red carpet looks. Her naturally flawless, carmel-toned skin, and long, shiny tresses make the perfect palette for almost any look. With side-swept hair, she rocks a clean, simplistic, yet glam look. This is a great look for a busy but Glam Mom who wants […]
I have acne scaring. Every now and then I want to cover those acne scars up… COMPLETELY. Not all foundations are created equally when it comes to covering up acne scars. Some foundations are too sheer and don’t come close to getting the job done. Then you have the other end of the spectrum, the […]
The 2011 ESPY Awards took place this past Wednesday night. While I did not have the pleasure of watching it on TV (I don't have time nowadays it seems), I was able to see the various looks on some of my favorite blogs. Obviously it would be wrong of me to gush my infatuation with […]

Eye cream is a close contender to my number one skin care necessity—exfoliators. I have them stashed everywhere—purse, bedroom, bathroom, travel bag—and use them religiously. And if you are a year over 20, you should be using one too. There is an eye cream for any and every eye issue you may have— fine lines, […]

I am addicted to lip color. It has to be either lip balm, red lipstick or the perfect consistency of lipgloss. And there is a little niche category of lipsticks that feel and look like a lip balm that is genius. Recently CoverGirl introduced NatureLuxe, a new line that exchanges age-old ingredients for more up-to-date […]
Waking up in the morning at the the ripe old age of 23 with another acne breakout? Seems to be the norm these days. What ever happened to the whole “Oh, you’ll grow out of that”, fable? We can ask questions all day, OR…. Try using Coral Actives Retinol Exfoliating Cleanser and Penetrating Acne Serum. […]
Every woman needs a go to fur (faux) and moisturizer for these winter months. It’s cold outside. We wrap up, blast the heat and even stoke the fire to keep warm. But the fact is that indoor heat as well as outdoor cold can all wreak havoc with our skin. Protect your skin from the […]
