Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 9 premiers on 2/12/19 and I thought it was time to do a beauty secrets post on Lisa Rinna! In case you missed it I’ve done beauty secrets posts for Lisa Rinna’s Real Housewives costars Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards, and Erika Jayne already.
I found these photos of her wearing the same dress in 2005 and 2018 so fascinating and great proof that what she is doing is working!!
Stassi was born on 6/24/88 making her 30 years old.
On this video from Bravo Stassi shared a few of her favorite makeup products. Stassi carries a Henri Bendel makeup bag because it reminds her of Blaire Waldorf from Gossip Girl.

The foundation Stassi swears by is Sephora Collection Perfection Mist Airbrush Foundation in Medium. You can spray this right onto your face or onto a foundation brush or beauty blender to apply. Stassi loves it because it will stay on through all day even through crying or swimming. I’m dying to try this foundation because Ive heard great things about it.
I’ve been posting this peppermint hot chocolate concoction on Instagram and people have been loving it so I wanted to make a longer instructional video about how to make peppermint hot chocolate on YouTube! This is part of my Trader Joe’s Tuesday series on YouTube.
Hello everyone! I thought it would be fun to give a rundown of the top 10 products that you all purchased from Blushing in Hollywood this year! I’m always so curious what piques everyone’s interest and who can inspire them to actually hit the checkout button! All of the items were from my Real Housewives/Bravolebrities Beauty Secrets series so I will include which star rocks each product!
Disclosure:This post was sponsored by Nordstrom (omg YAY!!). This post contains affiliate links. Read more about what that means and how it works on my Disclosure page. Thank you so much for your support!! I could never get to work with a brand as amazing as Nordstrom if it wasn’t for you all!!!
Hello friends! It’s the most wonderful time of the year! And if you’re like my family then the holidays are a time to put on some soft clothes, get under cozy blankets on the couch, and watch all of the Christmas episodes of the Office together. As we get older the holiday season becomes so much more than just giving and receiving stuff. I wanted to share some ideas that will help you create awesome memories. I want you to relax, recharge, laugh, and enjoy some quality time with your family this year!
My sister, my brother-in-law, and myself all live in California and the rest of our family is still in Florida. This will be our first #ChristmasInCalifornia together and we want to celebrate with new traditions. I figured new coordinating cozy pajamas would be the first step!
Nordstrom has been my go-to for holiday shopping for YEARS. Their selection is incredible, the free shipping is amazing, they have incredible unique gifts at all different price points, and they have a great return policy if the recipient thinks the gift isn’t quite right. I even send my family my Nordstrom wish list when they ask what I want for Christmas.
Nordstrom is also known for their quality and premium brands so you know the gift you’re giving won’t disappoint. This is why I was ecstatic that Nordstrom wanted to partner with me on this post this holiday season!
I live for a Nordstrom sale. I can sit on a couch clicking through all 800 of the pages lol. I tried to make sure these items were available in most sizes, but if you’ve shopped a Nordstrom sale before you know things go FAST so if you’re even thinking of buying it, just grab it. If you don’t have time to search through every page or just want to see my top picks for the Nordstrom Fall Sale 2018 then here we go!
Tory Burch Brooke Knee High Boot $333.66 I love the placement of the little Tory Burch logo on these!! These boots are chic and classic you’d get YEARs of use out of them.
From the bachelorette party to the dress, the venue to the catering, planning a wedding is enough to drive anyone mad. A bride-to-be must learn how to let go of some things, knowing she can only control so much. But there’s one domain where she has complete control and ought to take the reins sooner than later. Every bride wants to look her absolute best on her wedding day. The event itself takes a lot of planning, but your skin should be a priority. Be kind to yourself and invest in that picture-perfect skin you’ve always wanted.
The air is getting colder and the desire to spend Sunday afternoons snuggled on the couch with someone is increasing rapidly. This can only mean one thing, we are now approaching Cuffing Season. Summer is a great time to hang out with friends, spend your days at the beach and embrace your single self. However, once the temperature drops, you’re on the hunt for a cuddle buddy to cuff for the winter months. The truth is, you don’t know if this relationship will survive the snowy season, but you also don’t want to be the only person without a date to your friend’s NYE party. Keep reading for tips on what you can do to ensure you cuff the person you want to spend your “Netflix and chill” time with.
So I’ve been reading through lots of Reddit posts on r/dating and r/dating_advice to look for some patterns. One that keeps popping up is guys think the only way for them to be more attractive is by working out. Or making more money. Other then that it’s all genetics and they have absolutely no control.
As a woman I’m bombarded with ads of products that will make me more attractive. Advertising tells me there’s billions of ways for me to improve my beauty. I guess men haven’t had that same message their entire lives. So here you go men (all humans really), here’s all the secrets to being more attractive.
Be More Attractive Physically
First I want to clarify something. Women are not as obsessed with looks as men are. We really and truly are looking at more than your face, body, and bank account. We see the whole picture. You do not have to have a 6 pack or a perfect beach body to be successful on a dating app or dating online.
In fact, there are some women that are turned OFF by chiseled bodies because they feel intimidated or like they would be judged. I don’t want to date a huge body builder because if a man is eating and working out all day, how is he going to give me as much attention as I need??
Want to look more attractive physically? Try these:
Update your hair cut
Change your facial hair
Improve your skin – wash it every morning and night with a gentle cleanser. I like the CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser. Use sunscreenon your face every day. Use a retinol at night. Start slow with 1-2 times a week and work up to nightly. Just like most good things in life, consistency is important. If you have lots of acne scars or acne start getting facials regularly.
Improve your smile – Brush and floss your teeth regularly. Use Crest Whitestrips to whiten your teeth (this is my best tip for looking more attractive immediately, looking better in photos, and looking younger). Straighten your teeth with braces or Invisalign. Always brush your teeth before leaving the house. Carry gum and/or mints on you.
Eat healthy – Feed yourself like a grown up. Know how to make simple meals. Show that you are capable of taking care of yourself and that you care about your appearance.
Workout – This will improve your mood, give you more energy, increase your confidence, and get you more in touch with and more comfortable with your body.
Have impeccable hygiene – Daily or twice a day showers (omg what a dream to not have to wash/blow dry your hair… I would take so many more showers)
Clean up your hands and feet – Short, clean nails. No crazy calluses. Get a manicure and pedicure if you have to (you’ll enjoy it trust me).
Moisturize your skin – If it’s dry or flakey make sure you’re not using a soap that’s striping all of the oils out of your skin. Switch to a moisturizing body wash and put lotion on after you get out of the shower will your skin is still damp.
Posture – If yours is not good, work on it. Practice. Stand tall.
Get new clothes – Ones that fit you well, are good quality, and can be worn on dates.
Kelly Dodd from Real Housewives of Orange County can be pretty polarizing, but I think we can all agree that she’s absolutely gorgeous and may be aging in reverse. Kelly Dodd was born September 26, 1975 making her 43 years old. Kelly Meza-Dodd is originally from Arizona and has also lived in San Francisco before ending up in Orange County. She is also a Latina and part Mexican.
Kellys tagline this season is “Call animal control, ’cause there’s a cougar on the loose in the OC.” She is recently divorced from her ex Michael Dodd. Kelly is single and on the prowl and looking better than ever! Kelly and Michael Dodd have one daughter together named Jolie.
When do you feel most beautiful? Everyday, when I eat healthy and exercise. (Source)
Kelly Dodd’s Skin Care
As you’ve gotten older, how has your beauty routine changed? When I was younger I use to just wash my face and call it a night. Now I wash, tone, brighten, retin A, moisturize. I believe beauty starts from the inside out, so I am more mindful now about nutrition, exercise and getting enough sleep. (Source)
