February Ipsy Bag Review 

I am LOVING everything about this month’s Ipsy Bag! From the products to the bag this is a first where I have liked every single item! 

Here is what I received:

• Luxie Beauty 514 blush brush •

I love Luxie brushes. They are so soft, blend beautifully and are built to last. I love how this brush is dual fiber and I may use it for more than just blush. 

Luxie Beauty $18

• Briogeo Rosarco Blow dry perfection & heat protectant creme •

This is good blow dry cream for all hair types. It will enhance shine, tame frizz and offer heat protection for tools at 425^F. 

Briogeo $24

• Elizabeth Mott Whatup Beaches matte bronzer •
I love a highlight, but most bronzers that have shimmer are too glittery for me. This bronzer offers that natural sun kissed look. 

Elizabeth Mott $25
•Winky Lux Diamond Powder •

A powder foundation that contains crushed diamonds that will give you the ultimate coverage and glow. That makes me excited to try it lol! 

Winky Lux $20

New Edition


I have been MIA from blogging and am so excited to share the reason why. On December 5, 2016 I gave birth to the most amazing little boy Luciano. He has been keeping me busy these past two months, but I am excited to add mommy to my list of titles. 

Luciano is my rainbow baby. For those that do not know what that means a rainbow baby is a baby born after a miscarriage or other loss. The term comes from the saying “after every storm comes a rainbow.” And he rings true to that name. I had a miscarriage in January 2016 and it was one of the hardest days of my life. You never know how much you want something when it is taken from you. However, I am a firm believer in that the Lord works in mysterious ways and that everything happens for a reason. And now I am so thankful and happy to say I am a mommy to an amazing baby boy. 


It’s crazy how life changes once you become a mother. People talk about it, but it’s even more surreal when you experience. Not only do you go through intense hormonal imbalances for nine months while you are pregnant, but it continues after you give birth. Then the physical changes put you through a whirl. In my case I had a c-section birth so that came with some recovery and healing, but it wasn’t as bad as the horror stories that people told me. Once you get home you get to experience the psychological and emotional changes of your new role in life, balancing out who you were to how you will be now, how you will be as a girlfriend/wife, going back to work and al while trying to get sleep. It’s been a roller coaster ride, but one I am so happy to be on. 

So I am happy to make this announcement to you guys and will intergrate my glam mom role into the blog so please stay tuned for those features as well some other fun ideas I have been working on. 

Here’s to a new year with new experiences with my new edition!

Expert Tips & Tricks to Remedy a Nasty Sunburn


Summer is in full swing and with that comes the occasional sunburn. emerginC’s Training Director, Kimberly Sampson shares some tips and tricks on how to avoid inflammation, redness and soreness associated with sunburn below:

Skin redness during sun exposure is our body’s natural immune system response to skin cell’s excess exposure to ultra-violet sun rays. Skin redness occurs when there is an increase of capillary blood flow and skin is burned. Our body’s natural immune defense, or histamines, are released which helps calm skin inflammation – resulting in skin sensitivity and warmth from sunburn. 

 Kimberly’s Sunburn Remedies:

1. When addressing sunburn look for calming, soothing, and healing ingredients in skin care such as aloe, seaweed, tea extracts, hyaluronic acid, ceramides, botanical oils and extracts. Choose a nourishing body butter such as emerginC’s grape stem cell, white tea, and seaweed body butter that will help moisturize and reduce skin redness.

2. Taking a cool shower and applying a post-sun skin care product such as emerginC’s grape stem cell, white tea, and seaweed body butter and/or hydra-repair capsules to face, neck, and chest area will help begin the healing process from sunburn. 

3. A good natural remedy: Soak a soft fabric cloth in milk or collodial oatmeal and apply to areas of redness to help calm skin. Both milk and collodial oatmeal contain healing and natural anti-inflammatory ingredients to help address sunburn relief. 

Kimberly’s Recommended Products for Sunburn Relief:

active hydrating complex

A unique gel-base moisturizer containing aloe, glycerin, vitamin B, sodium PCA, matricaria extract creates a natural cooling sensation which helps hydrate, soothe, and protect sun- parched skin. ($53)

grape stem cell, white tea + seaweed body butter

The grape stem cell, white tea, and seaweed body butter contains antioxidant rich kombucha, green and white teas, spirulina, anti-aging grape stem cells, soothing and moisturizing aloe and glycerin and seaweed to help moisturize and nourish sunburn while helping to prevent sun damage. ($45)

hydra-repair capsules

Liquid gel capsules containing avocado oil, ceramides, vitamins E and A helps restore skin’s natural moisture balance, providing instant hydration and nourishing relief to dry, sun burned skin. Apply daily prior to moisturizer/sunscreen or directly after sun exposure for sun relief. ($92.50)


SPF 30+

A physical sunscreen containing anti-oxidant rich vitamins and botanicals to help protect skin against UVA/UVB rays while helping to reduce redness and skin sensitivity. Bonus, the SPF 30+ is formulated for face and body and can be used all year long. ($38)

May Ipsy Glam Bag Review


I received my May Ipsy glam bag this weekend and as always I’m going to show you what goodies I received.

The makeup brush is from Slmissglam. I got the W07 small contour brush. I have not heard of this brush company so I am excited to try a new brush. The bristles are very soft. I couldn’t find the exact price of this brush on the website but the brushes listed range from $13.50 to $16.50. Check out their site at Slmissglam

I love hair oils and I am looking forward to trying the Eva NYC Hungry Hair Oil Treatment. This is a nourishing hair oil that offers hear protection and shine. It’s retails for $20. For more information check out their site Eva NYC.

Is it just me or can a girl never have enough lip balms? And I love she’s butter which is the main ingredient in this product. The Organic Pharmacy Antioxidant Lip Balm retails for $21.50 and for more information check out their site The Organic Pharmacy

I’m convinced that these glam bags always know when I need something and this time it’s mascara. I’ve heard great things about Smashbox’s X-Rated mascara so I can’t wait to use it. You can purchase online at Smashbox for $22.

I am loving the last item which is the bellapierre no. 2 Nude Gel Lip liner. It is a gorgeous nude that will make my lip glosses pop! The pencil is very creamy which will make for a smooth application. You can check out more shades on their website Bellapierre for $18 each.

What I am most excited to try is ACV by DP HUE. It is a vinegar-based rinse that gives the hair a deep clean. Apple cider vinegar is found in most cleanses and I’m excited to try a new hair clarifying treatment. It retails for $35 at http://www.dphue.com

I love Macadamia Professional products! They are so moisturizing and luxurious for the hair. They now have an ultra rich moisture cleansing conditioner that gently removes build up while softening and defrizzing. This is perfect for curly hair girls!

I have been a long time member of Julep Maven and I’m so happy to see their products in the Allure box. A major cleansing game changer is their Kojac Cleansing Face Sponge. This is an all natural exfoliating sponge made with charcoal so it unclogs pores. Sold at http://www.qvc.com for $12.

Makeup Forever HD Microfinish powder is one of the best powders on the market. It is a loose, transcultural finishing powder. Sold at Sephora for $34.

Very interested in trying the Nunzio Saviano Anti-Frizz Sheets. They are oil infused hair smoothing sheets. They take frizz as they are passed in your hair and leave no residue. Sold on http://www.folica.com and a box of 12 is $18.
