Healthy Glow with 4 Products Only!

As I stated on my instagram page yesterday I was pretty inspired by our local Indianapolis Star reporter Leslie Bailey's short story on "Facing the World without Makeup". I also know a lot of ladies out there don't feel the need to have a single drop of makeup on (mum is one of them, she loves makeup to go out but doesn't even wear mascara on her daily life and teaching jobs). I instead am a self-proclaimed makeup addict and I blame my brows for it, or lack of! So I decided to film a quick video on wearing as few products as possible to achieve that healthy glow in the morning! You should most definitely think of your needs and pick the products to suit them. An important pick is a good tinted…

Nail Spring 2014 Trends

So I read an article in one of my mag subscriptions (couldn't find which one it was, sorry!) in which the reporter was describing how anxious she would get every time she had a chipped mani, well I must say I feel her pain even though I'm not exactly great at doing my nails, but I find it that a mani is the extension of my clothes, it has the same impact as a great bag or a nice pair of shoes! It truly is the period on a sentence. So, I put together some of my own photos taken from my Instagram account to share with you and thus give you a visual of the mani trends of Spring 2014. Keep in mind I d my own nails (can't bring myself to drop…

iTube: DIY – Brighter and Healthier Smile!

Hello gorgeous Ladies and Gents, I'm running a bit late on my videos this week due to school cancellations yet again...hello snow storm, we're all sick of you!!!!   What matters really is that I finally made a video on how to achieve and keep a beautiful and healthy smile.

So, if you are interested in knowing how I get my teeth bright and how I started to spend a lot less on dentist visits check out this video:   Full list of products I use everyday on my oral hygiene: DenTek…

Care for your Hair after Brazilian Blow-Dry! (Video in Portuguese)

Hello little ladies, today we're going to talk about hair care after a damaging chemical treatment. While in Brazil I couldn't resist and had a Brazilian Blow-Dry done. If you're not familiar with this beauty treatment it is a combination of formaldehyde and keratin that kills frizz and leaves hair straight for up to 4 months depending on how much you wash your hair - the less you wash, the longer it will last. Before considering such treatment though, beware of some side effects such as allergy to formaldehyde and take into account how damaged your hair already is as this can be pretty destructive alone. In my case, I was blessed with a head full of strong thick hair! This poor guys (my hairs) have survived a whole lot of craziness throughout the…
