Amazon’s latest product is the Echo Look which has all of the voice activated features of the Amazon Echo, but now is equipped with a special camera to capture outfits. The camera is hands-free, has built-in LED lighting, has a depth-sensing capabilities, and is able to blur the background automatically. It can also take videos and it looks like it makes little Boomerang videos as well. Now you can ask Alexa what the weather will be and then have her take a selfie in whichever outfit she has decided looks best on you.

I was ecstatic when I heard that Queen Erika Jayne aka Erika Girardi was going to be on one of my favorite shows Dancing With the Stars. I knew she was really going to bring it with the hair, makeup, costumes, and over the top performances. Then they pair her up with Gleb Savchenko aka my boyfriend in my head!? YAS! Erika is a such a laser-focused fierce goal-oriented person I also knew that she would bring it in the competition.

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”
Sonja Morgan is the hilarious gorgeous star of Real Housewives of New York City. She always has a super-natural look about her that’s light, radiant, and youthful, and probably helps her get all of those younger guys when she’s out at Beautique. Sonja looks so incredibly beautiful no matter how frazzled the other ladies on the show try to make her. Lucky for us in December 2016 she Instagrammed her beauty routine so we can try to emulate her amazing looks. I still can’t believe Sonja is in her fifties she looks incredible! I did all the research to let you know what skin care and beauty regimen keeps her looking fabulous as she jet sets all over the world. I will have another post coming up all about her makeup, hair, and other beauty secrets as well!

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)
Cynthia Bailey’s Skin Care
Vaseline: “Don’t rule out Vaseline,” she advises. It’s the pristine-skinned model’s go-to moisturizer in a pinch. Elbows, knees, lip balm — she even carries a little pot of it in her purse everywhere she goes. (Source) Continue reading “Cynthia Bailey’s Beauty Secrets”
I am still LOVING the Sephora PLAY! Box. If you’re not familiar with it, here’s a quick rundown:
- It’s a monthly subscription box that costs $11/month and comes with 5 deluxe samples of products (only ones sold at Sephora!) and a perfume sample (so 6 products total).
- The products are a mix of hair, skin care and makeup and are semi determined by your preferences, but mostly they’re just products that everyone can use.
- You can sign up and get on a wait list to get it here.
- 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.
- If you have more questions check out Sephora’s PLAY Box FAQ.
Here’s what we got this month: Continue reading “Sephora Play Box February 2017”
