It’s a mission looking for the right nail salon with the right nail technicians. Well ladies, you can stop your brakes. I found a gem that I’ve been going to for the past 7 years. Mind you, I only go to nail salons where they’re hygienic, have a good team of nail technicians and most importantly great customer service. Cindy’s Healing Hands is located in the UWS. Pay a visit if you’re around the area or don’t care about the transportation. I highly recommend Tania, Maria and Amy. They understand the essence of having perfect well polished nails. I love the consistency from every visit. They thoroughly clean my nails and meticulously paint my nails with out polish on the ridge of the nails. I have eyes like a telescope, if I see a micro dot of polish on my skin, I make sure to point it out. They handle my hands with care as if it’s their own. I never have to underestimate their work. I can sleep or daydream through the session and totally be satisfied in the end. It’s crucial to find a nail technician who understands your nail vision, otherwise it’ll be a disaster. They have to look perfect. After all, I am paying for the service and I should leave the salon satisfied.

“Hand your nails to the wrong nail technician, you’re up for a rude awakening”- Jennifer Reyes
Toss your black slacks and white collar shirts. Be classy and feminine. First impression is everything, you must be well polished from head to toe. The dress I wore is by Rebecca Minkoff. I fell in love with the self-tie neck sash and how it cinched my waistline. I felt like a modern Audrey Hepburn strolling the city. I wanted to add a pop of color so I wore Jessica Simpsons heels, brought life to my outfit. I’m obsessed with my Tom Ford cateye sunglasses, it gives it a retro glamour feel. Last but not least, to complete this look, you must have your nails painted nude. It’s classier and acceptable in any job interview. The worst you can do is go on a interview and have chipped nails. Makeup must look natural and neutral, not like you’re entering the circus for an interview. Be the whole enchilada, brains and beauty. Good luck beauties!

“Do what you love and you’ll never have a manic Monday.”
Did you know that cell turnover works faster when we sleep? This is why we must wash our face thoroughly every single night. Even if you haven’t worn makeup at all that day. There are so many pollutants in the air that gets trapped into our skin. A consistent and a proper night time skincare routine will help reverse years from our face. It can improve your skin tone and reduce blemishes. The image above shows the 9 essential products I use to prep my skin right before going to bed. Mind you, I don’t use exfoliation or face mask every single day, only used as directed. First, I use Aveeno makeup removal wipes only when I wear makeup. I use this to remove the dirt, excess oil and makeup off my face. Second, I lather my face wash in circular motion with Om Aroma Champagne Cleanser. Third, I exfoliate my face in a gentle matter. My favorite one is Joanna Vargas Exfoliating Mask, it leaves my face hydrated and radiant. I leave it on for 10 minutes or overnight. I let the fruit enzymes and vitamin c work its magic. Fourth, I apply a layer of Eminence Strawberry Rhubarb Masque and let it sit on my face for about 5-10 minutes. I rinse off with lukewarm water. Hot water will dry your skin. I pat dry my face with a towel. Then I apply Clarins Toning Lotion with Chamomile. My obsession! It leaves your skin soft and hydrated. I find a toner very useful because the moisturizer glides on easily. Fifth, I use Joanna Vargas Rejuvenating Serum as my moisturizer. The oil penetrates into my skin and leaves a nice lasting moisture shield. I also dot on the rejuvenating serum then eye apply eye cream for an extra dose of moisture. Sixth, Algenist Complete Eye Renewal Balm. It’s a multitasking product that diminishes wrinkles, fine lines, dark circles and puffiness. Don’t tug and pull while applying around the eye, gently dab the product on. Last but not least, drink a glass of water an hour before going to bed. You wouldn’t want to wake up in the middle of the night to use the restroom. Voilà, next morning your face will look healthier, radiant and rejuvenated. Stay consistent and you will see better results. Pick out products that will work for your skin type, don’t get discouraged if you don’t see drastic results the next morning. No product will work overnight, you’ll start seeing results within a few weeks or 2 months.
I don’t want to smell the funk, I want to smell the roses! I Introduce to you, Degree Motionsense Antiperspirant Sexy Intrigue Deodorant. It’s formulated with breakthrough motionsense technology. Every move you take, the fresher it smells as it releases the extra bursts of fragrance. Sounds like melodies to the ears, because it’s really accurate. It’s lightweight and lasts all day. It’s tough enough even through a long workout session. I love how it kills off the funk instead of masking over it. The scent remains the same, if not better. I’ve tried numerous of deodorants throughout my life, from drugstores to organic. Some worked for a while but it failed on me. My theory is, you have to change deodorants like you need to change your skincare routine each season. Well, I hope my theory is false. It’s a headache looking for the right deodorant. I want to commit to just one that will work efficiently. So far I’m intrigued!
