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 42 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.

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)

Tinsley Mortimer is the newest blonde on the Real Housewives of New York City. The onjocialite and NYC staple must have some kind of Benjamin Button disease because despite being born 8/11/75 (she’s 42!) she somehow still looks like she’s in her 20s.
Tinsley has a classic, clean, chic, preppy style and is definitely not into change. One reason the Tinsley Mortimer always looks on point- she used to be a beauty editor at Vogue (source)!
“My Southern mother taught me to never be ashamed to wear a full face of makeup at all times. She started putting lip gloss on me in fourth grade. So it’s just sort of built in.” (source)
I’ve been a huge fan of Southern Charm since the very first season and Cameran Eubanks consistently has absolutely amazing hair and makeup that look natural and effortless.
Since a lot of people have questions about her age- Cameran Eubanks aka Cameran Wimberly’s birthday is 11/21/83 making her currently 34 years old. One of Cameran’s biggest beauty secrets and the reason why she always looks so flawless- she used to be a makeup artist! (Source)
Cameran Eubanks Skin Care
Cameran usesOLE HENRIKSEN Truth Serum ($48). This is a collagen boosting serum with vitamin C for brightening and all-day hydration. As we age we lose collagen so it helps keep things right and tight. It’s like a multi-vitamin for the skin and is oil-free. (Source)
At night Cameran uses the Caudalie Vine[Activ] Overnight Detox Night Oil ($50). She says it wakes you up a new person. Umm that sounds amazing and I need to try this immediately. This oil helps to address skin damage caused by daytime external aggressors. Sonia Morgan is also a big fan of Caudalie skin care.
Cameran also loves the SkinCeuticals C + AHA Exfoliating Antioxidant Treatment ($135) which she said helped fade dark spots on her face after only 3 weeks! Impressive! This potent formula protects against damaging UVA/UVB rays, prevents premature signs of aging, and stimulates collagen production. The hydroxy acids exfoliate to smooth the skin and create a more youthful appearance. C+AHA uses both glycolic acid and lactic acid to slough off the rough outer layer of the skin revealing newer, youthful skin under the surface. Sonja Morgan also uses the C E + Feurulic from SkinCeuticals.

Ok time for a refresher- Sephora’s loyalty program has 3 different levels or tiers. There’s a few things that are true for all 3 tiers:

My friend Spencer Scott who is a perfume collector told me on Valentine’s Day 2016 that she had been wearing a perfume that guys love. I smelled it and really liked it’s feminine, sweet scent and then kind of forgot about it. When the Sephora VIB Sale came around I purchased a perfume sampler that included this perfume and I started wearing it. She was not kidding about guys liking it- I ALWAYS get compliments on it from dates and Uber drivers as soon as I get in their car. I don’t know if it’s because it’s strong when you first apply it, but they almost all immediately say “you smell good.” It’s almost comical at this point! I haven’t had guy pinpoint exactly what they like about it, but I’m guessing it’s just nice, feminine, luxurious, and clean smelling. My hunch was even confirmed on a quick Google search where it was mentioned on this message board. And the perfume is… Continue reading Men Love This Perfume on Women→
Ms. Cynthia Bailey the supermodel entrepreneur on Real Housewives of Atlanta just turned 50. Fifty years old ladies and gentleman! She looks absolutely incredible so I just HAD to do some research and find out what her beauty secrets are. I’ve even seen Cynthia in passing at the Grove in Los Angeles and she was absolutely stunning just like a supermodel should be.
“The thing that modeling has taught me about beauty is that it’s really individual. I work with so many different types of beauties, as a model. It’s not so much traditional. It’s about working with what you have and owning it. Confidence is so much of a part of being beautiful. I’ve met so many women who weren’t model-beautiful. Their confidence and everything about them is so beautiful to me.” – Cynthia Bailey (Source)
It also comes with a collectible bag and a paper with tips and tricks for every product.
The Sephora PLAY! Box also comes with a card you can bring into your local store and it will score you 50 Beauty Insider points with any purchase. Beauty Insider points can be used like Chuck-E-Cheese tickets to get more deluxe samples. Typically you’d have to spend $50 to get 50 points and 100 points gets you a deluxe sample. You do not have to purchase something in the box to get the points, but you do have to make a purchase.
When I see that little black and white striped box in my mailbox it is the highlight of my day every damn time.
