Real talk: everyone looks better with a tan. @sunnygirlspraytanphx #Phoenix

If we’re being  honest, literally everyone looks better with a tan. Of course, there are boundaries where tasteful tan ends and Oompa Loompa begins. How to find the sweet spot without getting sun spots?

The answer lies in spray – but the right spray. Not all spray tans are created equal. Popular machine sprays can’t see your body, resulting in splotchy bits and odd coloration. And sometimes the pigment isn’t as natural looking, so unless you’re going for Carrot Top, it might not look too chic.

Every Gym Girl’s Best Kept Secret… @Goodwipes #ad

#ad Ladies, we’re getting super real today.  Faint-of-heart boys might want to cover their ears.

As women, we’re expected to look — and smell — great all the time, even at the gym (thanks to Instagram, where the fit-chicks look polished and fab hip-thrusting 200 pounds). Unfortunately, we can barely navigate the difficulties of life much less a HIIT workout while smelling like a rose. Things just.. aren’t always fresh, especially through a sweat sesh.

Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream is not only an anti-aging cream but is a moisturizing and plumping powerhouse; hydration is one of the key benefits for younger women seeking preventative anti-aging measures.

How I’m never getting older – or poorer. #Olay #ad #Ageless

#Olay #ad #Ageless  Youthfulness will always be in style, but I feel like lately it’s had even more of a resurgence. Just look at our recent music: the Chainsmokers bravely proclaim “we ain’t never getting older”, Troye Sivan’s aptly named “Youth” notes “we’ve no time for getting old”… are we in denial, or is this goal of permanent youth actually *gasp* achievable?

“Sure,” many of you smirk, “with the right surgeon.” Reality TV alone is proof that a youthful appearance can be bought, but the price tag is no joke. Or is it? Can we reverse the hands of time without taking out a home equity line of credit to foot the bill on poisonous injectables, irreversible surgical procedures or celeb-endorsed $300 ointments made of only the finest free-range bald eagle spit?

The answer is yes. Ladies, welcome to the future. Gone are the days when we had to step beyond the drugstore doors and shell out makeup-counter dollars to get a decent quality skincare product. It’s 2017,  and youth is now within your budget.

But don’t those pricey products work better? That’s what the snobby counter girl WANTS you to think, but the only real added benefits go on her commission check. Consider this: Good Housekeeping Institute did a study on 10 top prestige beauty creams (including one with a $440 price tag), and drugstore powerhouse Olay’s Regenerist Micro-sculpting Cream outperformed them ALL. Say what? Continue reading “How I’m never getting older – or poorer. #Olay #ad #Ageless” »

Look Better Naturally – Without Makeup #Olay #ad

Have you ever wanted to look better naturally – without the augment of makeup? I know I have. I made a goal awhile back of looking better fresh-faced, straight out of bed.

Improving one’s natural beauty is a multi-step process. For me, a big part of it was improving my health. I saw a TEDTalk that suggested our skin tones become inherently more attractive when we consume more fruits and vegetables. How fascinating is that?

Vitamin intake was also a big part of this process for me. You know how prenatal vitamins are supposed to improve your hair and nails? Well, there’s a reason. Better nutrition = better looks, period. I made a commitment to myself to take a multivitamin with minerals as well as a hair and nails supplement and Vitamin D3 daily.
