Every year I generally stick to the same goals, eat better and workout more. Now don’t get me wrong one of my 2016 resolutions is to be more healthy but I also have a few beauty resolutions to add this year.

Which leads me to my first beauty resolution...

Had Too Much Fun Last Night? 5 Steps To Jump Start Your Beauty Recovery

It happens to the best of us, one after work cocktail at happy hour leads to crawling into bed at 2am. Usually for me it's when I am catching up with a close girlfriend and we get caught up in the convo before realizing it is 1am and we have had more than just a glass of wine each.

Fashion Magazine: Transitioning Your Makeup Into Fall

Fall makeup often consists of smokey eyes and dark lips but for me it is sometimes hard to jump straight into fall mode after my ultra easy summer makeup routine.  Actually, who am I kidding? I am ALWAYS a fan of a quick beauty routine.  Typically, in the summer, my makeup ritual consists of tinted moisturizer, bronzer, mascara and a coral or pink lip.  Since by October my tan has faded and I need a bit more makeup to bring out my features, I like to add a few products for my transition into fall...
