When you are thinking about presenting the best YOU, whether that be for a job interview (which competing for a pageant title is, more or less) or simply to build a reputation of excellence, little details make up the BIG picture! When I give talks related to building a reputation of excellence, I always talk about the idea that it’s important to be the whole package, consistency is key. So, all you pageant girls listen...

The other day as I was shopping in one of my favorite go-to places for quick beauty supply pick-ups, Walgreens, I decided to finally test out the Sally Hansen Nail Polish Strips. Well, I probably should have gone with one of the all-in-one strips before I decided to get fancy, but I guess that wouldn’t be me! I absolutely love black nail polish so I decided to test out the black tips. It took some... Read more »
Fall into Fashion
I have to say that one of my favorite seasons, if not my favorite, is fall! I absolutely love everything about. There’s nothing quite like being outside on a crisp fall afternoon, admiring the beauty of the leaves changing with a warm apple cider…and hey football doesn’t make things all bad either. However, one of my favorite things about fall is the fashion! I’m a fan of a great oversized sweater, lots... Read more »
One of my favorite go-to makeup products is Make Up For Ever’s HD Microfinish Powder. This is one of the best translucent powders that I have come across. It’s made of 100 percent-mineral silica, softens the appearance of imperfections and pores while completely evening out the complexion for a glowing, smooth, and clean look. I absolutely love the finish it gives without looking caked on or powdery. Also, the container is spill proof so it... Read more »
I absolutely love super chic and classic jewelry that can go with almost anything. One of my loves is Alex and Ani. I first was introduced to Alex and Ani as I competed for Miss Earth United States in 2011 and haven’t stopped wearing them since! One of the things that I love most about Alex and Ani is their eco-friendly approach to design. Designer Carolyn Rafaelian believes that every individual has a positive message... Read more »
I will be the first one to admit I like my fair share of lounge worthy clothes. However, I don’t necessarily want to, in my terms, look a “hot mess” while lounging. I’ve been asked a lot about where I’ve purchased these items in particular…I absolutely love both JCLU Forever and Blogilates. Both offer great quality merchandise, amazing designs, and are relatively inexpensive.
Ahhh Sephora…I can get lost in that place for hours…on a recent visit to Sephora, you know that little bag you leave with where you spent over a $100 and have nothing to really show for it, I happened to get a pretty awesome freebie. Over the past couple of months I’ve been looking for a awesome highlighting tool that wasn’t powder..BINGO! Benefit’s Watts Up! is amazing. Goes on perfectly smooth with a little bit... Read more »
My go to nail colors always seem to be in the family of nude and pink. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE fun colors (especially black, yes black) but as far has flexibility with my wardrobe and out of pure ability to be chic, there is something so classic about the nudes/neutrals and pinks.
Also, when competing and attending go-sees/casting calls you will always catch me with one of these colors!
As a pageant girl and someone in the modeling industry, I would like to think that I know my make up pretty well. Now, of course, not everything works for everyone but I am absolutely loving the introduction and now craze of BB cream products that are now on the market. My normal morning prep time used to take me at least 15-20 minutes and I have to be frank and say it was a... Read more »
