“St. Ives Facial Oil Scrub Coconut” is infused with pure grape seed oil and 100% natural coconut shell powder, to nourish and exfoliate in one step. Both the milk and the shell are used in formula to nourish skin and create a organic exfoliate. Smooth it on and scrub up to 3-4 times a week, I love to use this on the mornings before shoot days because it gets my skin smooth and soft for my MUA. Available at Target.
My family swears by Vicks VapoRub for colds, allergies and fevers. Simply because the medicated vapors begin to work fast to relieve your symptoms. Use on chest and throat; temporarily relieves cough due to common cold. On muscles and joints, temporarily relieves minor aches and pains. Under nose to relieve sinus pressure and mucus buildup. I had a new little beauty trick that I use vapor rub for. Available at Target.
Refreshed is a lightweight skin spritz that you won’t want to stop using—morning, noon and night. Hyaluronic Acid quenches dry skin and minimizes pores, while a wide array of natural extracts give your skin a noticeable perky and bright appearance. Need a quick pick me up? Cucumber, Kelp and Apple Enzymes refresh and re-hydrate. I love to spray “Refreshed” on my bare face or beat face. It keeps my face hydrates but not oily or greasy. I like to use it as a mist and set. Available at www.thisisfeel.com.
Cosmetic Sanitizer Mists removes bacteria and germs on powder-based products: eye-shadows, blushers, pressed powder, bronzers, cream-based products: compact foundation, concealers, cream blush/eye-shadows. Spray it on and let the sanitizer do the rest. I scored this mist at the Orlando Makeup Show. Mist is available at www.beautysoclean-us.com.

Woke up this morning feeling very inspired. I try and remind myself on my worst days why I started my blog in the first place. To inspire people to be themselves and embrace their personal style. I am taking advantage of the weather that has been warming up with a printed crop tank. Tank features tie neckline, cropped hem and stretch fabric. It felt nice freeing my arms from winter’s style layering.
I paired tank with pleated olive green skirt from Target Who. Wear. What Collection. Skirt features a comfortable stretch lining, sheer pleated overlay, midi length and stretch waistline. Skirt is very flattering on the waistline and hip. Pleated skirts are trending right now and they give off a very tailored and collected vibe no matter what it’s paired with. Have some fun with styling add a Moto jacket and boots for an edgy punk look. Or go the casual by pairing sneakers for a casual look or stay buttoned up for work in a oxford shirt and cardigan.
I accessorized look with Betsessories (Betsey Johnson Accessories). Lips shaped hand bag featured black linked chain handle, and top zipper closure. Gold Fox earrings feature green eyes and a silver circle encrusted in diamonds in their mouths. I completed the look with pointed toe faux leather ballet flats in a nude shade.
