Pur Attitude Anti-aging Skincare Review

My first taste of Pur Attitude's skincare collection came about when I received their Face Lift Gel in a New Beauty TestTube mailing (I've been a subscriber for years). I loved the packaging because you can actually see the product inside and know how much you start off with and how much is left as you use it. I'm picky about things like this when it comes to skincare because it seems like a lot of brands try to hide their product behind fancy packaging. It's the product that should be speaking for itself, right? I emailed Pur Attitude and asked if they'd send me a few of their products I was most curious about. As you know, I'm always looking out for the best wellness products for you, especially when it comes to my Quarterly Box mailings, which ALWAYS include fit skincare. I really love how the Face Lift Gel I got from New Beauty's TestTube (great for applying before you do your makeup) made my face feel really tight upon application but I wanted to try some of their other...

Don't Want To Look Frozen? This Filler Is For You!

A lot of people are scared of getting dermal fillers in their face and I don't blame them. We've seen enough celebrities who look frozen with very little movement in their forehead and mouth areas. Additionally, I've had a lot of friends tell me they hated their results after dabbling in fillers. They felt like they looked "different" afterwards. There were certain things about the way they charicteristically moved their face that were now gone. While I have to say I've never experienced this problem myself, I can totally understand how this would be extremely frustrating. I talk for a living so it would bug me if mobility in my face was limited or not believable. But at the same time, I want to look great for my age so when I feel I need a little help or plumping, I turn to injectables. I heard whisperings about a new type of filler to combat the frozen face look. I was eager to learn about it and then in perfect timing I got invited to this event by Galderma! The...

Cellfina Banished My Dimples: Watch me get treated!

It takes guts to post your bare ass on the internet. The "before" picture is definitely where my vulnerability lies. My mission has always been to offer up the best advice I could possibly give and to provide my readers with honest feedback on everything I try. So here it is: my experience receiving the much talked about Cellfina treatment. Viewer discretion is advised as I do show parts of the actual procedure. Don't worry, nothing is bloody or disgusting, or anything like that! But, I know some people are sensitive when it comes to needles. I know I am! Watch the video below... Cellfina is intended for long-term improvement in the appearance of cellulite in the buttocks and thigh areas of women. I only had my butt treated because there was no dimpling on my thighs. I do have some wavy cellulite-ish lines on my back thighs but I'm hoping to get that treated with laser later on. A lot of people have asked me 1) how much Cellfina costs and 2) what kind of pain level is...

How I Treated My Frown Lines!

Yup, you may have never noticed but I had frown lines, and you better believe I had them taken care of and continue to do so. I won’t play coy with you and pretend like I’m above it because my looks matter to me. I always want to look my best for my self-esteem and for all the Instagram pictures I take! Just kidding! It’s not something I do for social media although I like looking good for my followers...who doesn’t? It comes from a desire to look as youthful as I feel. I’ve always been an energetic, on-the-go type of person, even during my advertising days when I used to write and art direct TV commercials. That’s actually when my frown lines started to appear, around 29 years old. At the time, I was working very long hours. Sometimes until 4am! I was working for the best advertising agency in the world so there was no other option than giving 500%.  I was definitely stressed and my work hours were aging me. Staring into a computer screen designing...

Dermal Lip Fillers Tutorial

I'm going to be absolutely candid here. I got filler put in my lips and I love it. And I'd be lying if I said it was the first time. But really, I have nothing to hide. I'm always open and honest about all the health to esthetic treatments I try. It's what I do! I'm sure a lot of you who are considering lip injectables have questions about it. This is the place to ask so feel free to leave your questions in the comments section below once you watch the video I made about my dermal fillers treatment with Lisa Hartman, PA. Lisa Hartman is a wonderful practitioner and friend, and someone I feel very comfortable going to for my facial chemical peels, high performing topical creams and anything else I splurge on related to preserving my skin and maintaining a youthful appearance. She's basically a walking billboard for her services. She believes in a natural and fresh look, so you'll never see anyone overdone walking out of her office. I have worked extensively...

Yoga in a Salt Room. Win This Experience!

I tried yoga in a salt therapy room and loved it! Watch the video above by clicking the "Is Salt Healthy Or Not?" image. You can win the experience I had by reading this post and leaving a comment at the bottom. I'm picking 3-5 winners by November 1st, 2016. Unique workouts are my thing, but doing yoga in a room covered in salt from floor to ceiling was definitely a first for me. I had no idea how it was going to play out until Ellen Patrick explained that we would be doing traditional poses on a thick layer of Pink Himalayan salt at a pace that's much slower and less balanced than we're used to. It would take extra focus and lots of deep breathing, but once we surrendered to the salt and it's uneven surface, we would be in a state of relaxation like no other. All I can say is that I have an entirely new view of SALT! For years I thought salt was my enemy. I had no idea that it could help alleviate my eczema, regulate my sleep schedule, clear up my congestion and just...
