Sonja Morgan’s Beauty Secrets – Skincare, Botox, Facials, and More

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!

Cynthia Bailey’s Beauty Secrets

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”

Sephora Play Box February 2017

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”

Kyle Richards’ Beauty Secrets

Since I’ve already done Lisa Vanderpump (twice for LVP actually) and Erika Jayne aka Erika Girardi I figured the next Real Housewife of Beverly Hills whose beauty secrets we all want to know is obviously Kyle Richards aka Kyle Richards Umansky. Again I have scoured the internet for any and all interviews with Kyle about her fave beauty products, makeup, hair care, skin care, etc. and have put them all together for your enjoyment here!

Holiday Gift Ideas for Her 2016

I recently attended a Nordstrom Morning Beauty Event and they had TONS of awesome gift ideas I had to share! If you didn’t know, Nordstrom regularly holds great (free!) beauty events in store where you usually get some really great samples and freebies! They had tons of raffles at mine and I even won a Nest home diffuser! You can see if your store is having any Nordstrom events here. The Nordstrom at the Grove is even having Mr. Francois Nars in store on December 10th from 2-4pm for a book signing.

Also don’t forget to use Ebates because Nordstrom currently has 6% cash back.

My top pick for a gift is either of these: Continue reading “Holiday Gift Ideas for Her 2016”
