#EyeHeartNY Twitter Party 4/24 #ad

This summer I'll be 40. Wrinkles and fine lines know their way around my face like a road map. I wish what I know now about anti-aging, I knew 20 years ago so that I could take better care of my skin. However, since I can't literally turn back Read more

Beauty Benefits of Lime

It may sound silly, but even though I don't drink, those Corona commercials snag my attention every time. Sounds of the ocean, the sense of relaxation and the refreshing lime placed perfectly in the bottle neck. It's that lime that calls out to me saying, "Let me quench your Read more

Easy Nail Art Tutorial

Super Easy Nail Art How To Using Dental Floss

Honestly, the easy button was made for people like me. There are just some things I have no patience for, and nail art is one of them. I wish I could tell you that as a beauty blogger I am super creative and uber crafty and create endless nail looks to swoon over, but the truth is, my nails go bare most of the time.

It’s a tragedy really. For some reason, ever since I wore shellac back in 2011, my nails have never grown to any substantial length. But that’s not my only excuse. I simply lack the skill required to paint cool scenes on my tiny nails. Then Pinterest to my rescue! I came across an amazingly easy nail art tutorial, and I was pretty excited to be able to recreate it with some modifications.

Garnier’s Clean + Balancing Daily Exfoliator Review

Garnier Balancing Exfoliator #review #skincare

I’m all over the place when it comes to skin care. I’ve been brand loyal with my daily moisturizer since I was 12, (my mom’s favorite is still my favorite,) but when it comes to face wash, I can safely say I’ve tried every product on the shelf at least once. After years of experimenting with pretty much every face cleanser under the sun, I can safely say Garnier’s new  Clean + Balancing Daily Exfoliator was the most pleasant morning pick me up (besides coffee) I’ve ever had the pleasure of experiencing.

There’s lots of exciting stuff coming from Garnier for Spring 2014. I think they are trying to target a young buyer with their new collection and I’m all about it. The new Garnier Clean + Skincare Collection is available with newly launched cleansers, a new moisturizer and a facial primer. Read more
