A Few Of My Favorite Things...

Philosophy- Turbo Booster C Powder

"A topical vitamin c powder
Turbo Booster C Poweder is a 99.8% high potency topical vitamin c powder that helps prevent premature aging, by acting as an antioxidant and promoting collagen synthesis which helps improve the skin's overall tone and texture. science has proven that the daily application of topical vitamin c will help retard the aging process by neutralizing the effects of environmental attack. use alone or mixed with any of your favorite products to instantly convert them into a state-of-the-art vitamin c formula.
you need this product if...
you want the highest potency, best vitamin c product on the market ." - I love topical vitamin C powders, I first learned about the wonders of vitamin C while in beauty school where we used Murad. My favorite mask of theirs is the vitamin C mask which was orange colored and 'citrisy' and perfectly tingly. When that mask came off my skin (and every client I used it on) was glowing and flawless! I thought even better to get straight to the source and get a almost 100% vitamin C powder!
You can use this product alone or mix with moisturizer to get its wonderful brightening effects! This is not just to aging skin, if you have any sun damage, or acne scars this will help lighten them and make them less noticeable! Notice: If you do mix with a moisturizer use that batch of moisturizer with in the next few days because the vitamin c will oxidize and go bad with left in the air too long!
You would like this product if:
you want a convertible vitamin c that can be mixed in with your favorite moisturizer
you want to protect against free radical damage, the cause of 99% of all aging
you want brighter, cleaner, younger looking skin
you want to retard the aging process

Robindira Unsworth "Nest Egg" Rings-

"The lush beauty of the Fijian Islands infuses this collection. Our rough hewn nuggets are reminicent of ocean pearls--magically recreated in gold and paired with stones and beads. Nest Eggs available in 22k gold vermeil and sterling silver."

I love the look of these little rings and they do look like little eggs! They are beautiful and simplistic with out being to heavy even considering the size of the stone! This is the perfect alternative to the overly large cocktail rings we are seeing everywhere! I happen to love cocktail rings (the bigger the better) but I am aware that not everyone shares my "big ring" passion! Another alternative is a line named Pomelatto (these are much more expensive) but gorgeous!!! I will post with details and info on these later along with David Yurman (my ABSOLUTE favorite jewelry!!!)--now if only I could afford it...

To purchase go to

Francesco Biasia- Annie Rose Hobo

Francesco Biasia makes absolutly beautiful bags! This one is my favorite right now! They are a bit pricey...but not compared to a Prada or a Balenciaga bag! These run between $400 and $600 and come in a variety of styles! You can purchase them at Macys or Nordstroms, Neimans or Saks! They also come in the most beautiful colors and the leather is probably the softest thing you have ever felt! LOVE THEM!

Take The Pledge!!

Jergens Glow In The Dark Pledge
Being an Aestetician I am very consciouse of sun exposure and damaging my skin...ever since going through school I feel tres guilty going to the tanning beds! Last time I went (long time ago...) the whole time (15 mins or so) all I could think about was my skin disinegrating off my body....bad bad things. So Instead I have been spray tanning to maintain a bit of color because lets face it...everybody looks better with a bit of a healthy glow.
The other day on E! I saw that Kristen Bell is pledging to only get "safe sun" through Jergens sunless tanning products. She is beautiful and I thought what a wonderful way to make a commitment to health. For every pledge Jergens will donate $1 to the Skin Care Foundation (up to $20,000). I just pledged today and am planning on buying this Jergens Soft Shimmer lotion to add to my spray tanning, which I try and do every few weeks. Once I try the product I will post with a review; in the meantime I suggest that anyone who doesn't want wrinkles or sunspots in the future (oh the things we get to look forward to) should pledge at because seeing as how your skin is your body's largest organ maybe you should take care of of the best ways to do that is staying out of the sun!
Pledge On!

Bobbi Brown -- Tips and Tricks

First off, I love Bobbi Brown cosmetics...I have not tried all of her products but there are quite a few I have my eye on! One of the many lovely things about Bobbi Brown online is that you can submit any questions regarding makeup looks or tricks etc. and a professional artist will get back to you with a full personalized answer as well as a step by step run through of how to atchieve the look in question. I have done this twice and received wonderful and promp responses! The site is wonderful all together, however my favorite (BEST THING EVER!) part is the video guides that Bobbi does for a new collection or for general applications like foundation, concealer or mascara! These videos are extremely helpful and Bobbi is such a talented artist and visionary that they are very inspiring also! Hope their artists and videos can help you with any questions you might have about makeup!!!

Stila Convertable Color--

Probably my favorite beauty look is a beautiful flushed cheek. With clean healthy don't need much and Stila Convertable Color gives the most beautiful natural flush with a good variety of colors. At first I tried to swirl my finger in the color (which is like a compacted cream formula) and then to blot and blend it onto my face. However I found that patting my finger against the color then onto my cheek worked better. You do not need a lot of this product to see results!!! I use Poppy which looks a little dark in the compact but creates a lovely "just got out of the cold" kind of effect.
You can buy Stila Convertable Color at Sephora or at their website.
Let me know what you think!!!

Favorite Perfume

Isn't it the life long (or seamingly) search to find the perfect parfume! There are so many out there...and so little time. I'm sure there are many beautiful frangrances that I have yet to find...but for the moment (and for many more I'm sure!) I'm IN LOVE with Lolita Lempicka origieonal fragrance! It comes in the most beautiful little glass bottle that looks like a purple apple, with gold vines running around it, the sprayer like the top of an apple in gold as well as the logo scrolled across the bottle! They also have a new fragrance called Lolita Lempicka "L" the bottle is equally beautiful, however I have yet to try it. I will post again when I do!

You can buy Lolita Lempicka at many stores...but also at Sephora!

Let me know what you think of Lolita or what the parfume is that you can't live with out!

I think I might just shower in the stuff if I could.......that might not end well though....

Osea Skin Care!

I am an Aestetician and blossoming makeup artist on California's Central Coast! I have recently started using Osea Skin Care at my work and at home and LOVE LOVE LOVE it! As will you! It is the only "all natural" marine based skin care line on the market; it is wonderfully effective and simple. There are options to mix and match products for different effects and there is a line for dry-sensitive-and-oily skin types.
I myself use the Ocean Cleansing Mudd, the Sea Minerals, Essential Corrective Complex, Red Algae Mask and the Atmosphere Protection Cream. However the other masks are amazing especially the White Algae Mask (which is extremely calming and brightens the skin).

The scent of the product is beautifully light as well. There are no added fragrances to the products, the smell is just based on what's inside.

You will LOVE these products as much as I do I promise!

Go to their website to find more information, the spas where they can be found and to ORDER!
