One of the most important gifts you can give a young woman today is the gift of self-esteem. I think it’s much harder growing up a young woman these days as information about everything moves fast and I think it can be confusing.

About 3 years ago I became a mentor to an 8th grader who lives in a tough part of Los Angeles. She just started her junior year in high school and is starting to think about college. She comes from a low-income family and is a first-generation American. I totally lucked out with her as she has a really good head on her shoulders. She actually dreams about going to Harvard, and she probably could as she has the grades.

Score a #PersonalCareWin with Unilever this Season

Dove Men+Care AXE Degree products at Target

I’ve pretty much avoided fall's college football season, but since my boyfriend and I moved in together, my house has become football central on Saturdays! And I must say, I don’t really mind it. Since my SO went to UCLA, the UCLA Bruins are our team. We’ve only gone to a few parties so far this fall but I feel like ours will be the best house parties out of our group of friends. We have a great space to entertain and I just love getting the house all ready for company.

Since I can only take so much viewing of the actual games, I look forward to spending some “me time” by heading over to Target to get my weekly shopping done or I just kick my feet up and shop @ target.com. Yes, girls, take advantage of getting some shopping done! Not only do we get our football food shopping done at Target when it’s our turn to host, but my boyfriend has been super open to me making suggestions in the grooming department.

Going Tropical with Malie

Malie-Body-Gloss-Body-Polish-Beauty-Oil-Soap-in-Plumeria-2
How do you choose your body products? Scent? Price? Ingredients? I pick mine based on all four of those premises and if you do too, then need to know about MALIE (pronounced may-lee-ay). It’s a luxury aromatherapy line from the Hawaiian island of Kauai. Highlighting their natural resources is their inspiration and they include them in every product, more specifically, hydrosols, which are the by-products of oil infused water collected during the steam distillation process. You won’t find a lot of strange words in the ingredient list and every product is cruelty-free. Besides the body products I’m focusing on here, they also offer candles and skin care. Read more about the different lines on their site @ malie.com.

Self-Tanning with Isle of Paradise

Isle-of-Paradise-Self-Tanning-products
I think the summer of 2018 has been the season of the self-tanner. I have tried a lot of them, and some were ok and others blah! One new line that scored high on the list and that adds a little something different is ISLE OF PARADISE. By now, we’ve all heard of color-correcting makeup but have you heard of color-correcting self-tanner? Throwing all the one-shade-fits-all thinking out the window, they’ve put out a 6-product strong line and it’s rolling out in the US at Sephora and when Sephora adds a brand to their line-up, I pay attention!

Thanks for the Added Confidence Dove! #FreshForSunFun

Disclosure: Post sponsored by Mirum but all opinions are my own. Please see below for additional disclosure.

Kauai-2018
I’ve never been one for heights so this year I decided it would be the year for me to get out of my comfort zone and conquer it. You may recall me mentioning in my different social media platforms that I went to Kauai 2 months ago and when my friend and I were looking for activities to do outside, she brought up zip lining. Are you familiar? It’s where you are suspended by a pulley in the air (usually quite high up!) and propelled from one platform to the other, which are usually attached to trees, and you zip from one tree to the other.

It was probably one of the better options to choose to help with my fear or heights as it wasn’t too jarring. We had been really looking forward to doing some awesome outdoor activities on this trip and this was one I really wanted to do.

You know when you go to a summer party and you see that one girl that just seems to have it all together? She has on the right summery dress, the hair that falls perfectly into place, and they just have that glow about them? Well, Olay Cleansing Infusions wants to help you be that girl at your next outing.

I don't know about you but summer is my favorite fashion season and as soon as we have a day that hits 80 degrees, all my cute dresses come out, especially the ones with the bold prints! I have this one I bought in the dead of winter that I've been dying to wear and I finally did this past weekend. It's a green and white polka dot dress and was perfect for a Kentucky Derby party I attended.

And to get my glow on, I used Olay Cleansing Infusion Hydrating Glow Body Wash (made with deep sea kelp) and Olay Cleansing Infusion Hydrating Glow Facial Cleanser (this one contains deep sea kelp and aloe extract). Both the facial cleanser and the body wash come in Crushed Ginger with Citrus Extract, too!

3 Ways to Turn Up Your Beauty Look

You have an event coming up and you want to find the perfect dress, the highest heels, a good blowout, and oh, what should you do with your makeup for it? While you decide, here are a few products that can add a nice touch to your look that you might not have thought about.

No matter what trait you are looking to show off, I have some suggestions that have totally worked for me below.

Votre-Vu-Silk-Stockings-and-NARS-Monoi-Glow
*LEGS*

Make legs look silky smooth – temps will be warming up soon so skirts will be getting shorter again. Give legs and extra extra with one of these. It makes you look like you are wearing stockings when you’re not. VOTRE VU Silk Stockings in Classic Bronze ($38/3.38oz @ votrevu.com) or NARS Monoi Body Glow I ($59/2.5oz @ narscosmetics.com, sephora.com).

Dove DermaSeries Repairing Balm 30-Day Challenge Results!

Disclosure: Post sponsored by Mirum but all opinions are my own. Please see below for additional disclosure.

Dove-DermaSeries-Repairing-Balm
I’ve been testing the Dove DermaSeries Repairing Balm for the past 30-days and really giving this one a challenge on the dry parts of my body. Most in need were the hands, and two dry spots, one on my ankle and the other on my elbow. Have you been following my updates on Instagram?

What I like about this Dove DermaSeries Repairing Balm is how thick and emollient it is. That’s because of the unique petroleum jelly blend this contains. Regular lotion is fine but this liniment is more for those areas that might not respond enough to a cream and need something a little tougher, so to speak. It’s specifically made for those with dry skin, eczema, psoriasis, and it also a proven itch reliever. #fromblahtodermaspa

#TakeANewLook18 at Spring!

Disclosure: Post sponsored by Mirum but all opinions are my own. Please see below for additional disclosure.

Nexxus-TRESemme-and-Vaseline-in-my-bathroom
Spring is here, finally, and though we here in Los Angeles certainly did not get the brunt of the storms this past season; I’m still hankering for the warmth and mega sunshine. Each year my family and I designate a specific March weekend day to do what we call, the “change over,” where we each go through our own clothes, shoes, etc. and pull the winter items out we want to store. Each of us puts our items in the hallway and my husband comes by with a huge bin (sometimes two) marked 'winter' where everything goes in and it goes downstairs for the season.

Do you do something like this? After the clothes are taken care of, I immediately visit the beauty closet to change up my products for the season. You should always change in your beauty routine and products based on the time of year. In the colder months, heavier creams are great and also darker nails colors, etc., whereas with the warmer times of year like spring and summer, body oils, fruity-smelling products and pastel shadows are my thing.
