What To Wear For a Fashion Interview in the Fall

Fashion September 18, 2016

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!

It was love at first sight the minute I applied Bobbi Brown luxe lip color in Almost Bare. After one use, my lips felt ultra soft and looked naturally healthy. It’s both highly pigmented and creamy. My lips looked more plumped. The result was flawless, I had to research what were in the ingredients. Sure enough, I read it’s infused with vitamins C, E and MaxiLip, a powerful peptide. Brilliant idea, It’s the perfect nude color for an everyday look!

NYC Organic Facial Spa

Lifestyle August 24, 2016

I’ve had facials that contained harmful chemicals. I loved how I looked in the mirror but little did I know it could harm my skin down the line. Our skin is the largest external organ. Therefore, we must have the proper skincare routine. What we place on our skin is absorbed into our bloodstream. This piece of valuable information stuck with me ever since. That’s when I decided to go organic and get a healthy Vitamin C Glow treatment  by this lovely place called, Savor Spa.  It’s a little cute chic spa located in West Village. It’s all about the glow vs. dull. My skin is precious and it deserves the upmost luxurious touch. Ever heard the saying, Sometimes you need space from your loved one, it’s healthy? Well, same applies to you and your makeup. Treat your skin with love,  have a healthy diet, exercise, sleep well, let it breath and it’ll love you right back. After your little time off from makeup and you’ve basically detoxed, watch how more beautifully your face will look with makeup on. It makes a difference, I promise! Here’s an after treatment photo. My experience went splendid. The products had a pleasant scent that made my facial that much enjoyable. I made sure to schedule my next appointment for a Power Peel, so excited for that day to arrive!FullSizeRender-3

Essie’s New Nail Trend Obsession!!!

Beauty August 23, 2016

After years of getting shellac manicures, I noticed my nails became very brittle and weak. I had to break up with Shellac and avoid harmful UV lights for good. Perfect timing to make room for these fabulous new shades. Essie has launched a Gel Couture collection with 42 luxurious colors to choose from. The polishes caught my attention when I first walked in my nail salon, Cindy’s Healing Hands. I was intrigued by the distinct and edgy twist the bottle design had. This innovative formula is a 14 day wear, two-step system. You apply the color and the top coat for a final glossy sealed look. I’ve always loved Essie’s polishes but my nails wouldn’t last 2 days without getting chipped. It was frustrating because I honestly was lazy to fix it after I just got them done. My other option was to remove it all and go natural for another week. But really, who doesn’t like colors  and shine on their nails? So thank you Essie for creating a revolutionary gel collection, it’s a life changer!

Age-Defying Snail Face Mask

Beauty August 22, 2016

It is no secret that Asian women have flawless complexion like a porcelain doll. Why is that? Korean beauty industries are way more advanced than the U.S. They are booming with new and innovative products. Such as the Tony Moly Intense Care Snail Hydro Gel Mask. It’s enriched with unique ingredients like seaweed, sea algae extract, and Korean herbs. My first application felt refreshing and didn’t drip like some sheet face mask. This one actually adhere to my face the entire time. The consistency is slimy because of the snail mucin. I assumed the mask didn’t have a unpleasant smell, requiring it needs to stay on the face for 20-30 minutes. Who could bare a foul smell? The end result was neutral, I didn’t see a difference. Although, my face did feel ultra hydrated. But what other face mask wouldn’t do the same? I will just have to see and apply it to my weekly face routine.

Cool Fact: Snails are hermaphrodites which means they can produce themselves. They don’t need another snail to reproduce. How cool is that?

Quench Your Skin With Green And White Tea

Beauty August 21, 2016

A cup of tea is one of the methods for a youthful and healthy skin. It’s a life changer, that is, if you pick the right tea. My favorite organic teas that work effectively are green and white. Both teas have high antioxidants that are great for anti aging. It also helps with improving skins elasticity and complexion. I make sure to drink green tea twice a day. Once I finish the box, I move on to the white tea and follow the same routine as previous. I personally feel like I need to stay consistent with one tea flavor before moving on to the next.  Stay consistent and gradually you’ll see results!

Skincare is a necessity not a luxury!

Beauty August 7, 2016

I’ve used products with a lot of chemicals and fragrances that would dry out my skin after getting out the shower. I couldn’t stand having cracked skin like the cracked pavement floors. I decided to go organic and test it out. Sure enough, I became addicted and never turned back. Nubian Goat’s Milk & Chai body wash gave me hope. My skin felt well nourished and it is healthier than ever. Lathers well, smell is pleasant, not strong, not spicy even if it says chai. Washes off easily and leaves skin soft and clean. Not drying, it won’t strip off your natural oils. It’s a cleanser and moisturizer all in one bottle. I love it!

There’s no better feeling than opening up your makeup bag and being able to find your eyeliner.
