Ovation Haircare – I SWEAR by this stuff! I originally started using Ovation after I had extensions and was trying to repair the damage they had caused. This was back in my days as a Dallas Mavericks Dancer. Since then I have tried numerous products but I ALWAYS come back to Ovation. I personally use the Color Protection Cell Therapy System since I have highlights in my hair. Skeptical? I don’t blame you! I was too. I tried it on a total whim and now I am a loyal customer. They offer trial sizes if you want to give it a go before committing. I promise you will not be disappointed. You can thank me later. 😉

Marc Jacobs coconut face primer – I will admit that when it comes to putting on makeup, I usually go with a faster is better attitude. That means I skip out on a lot of things that would actually make my makeup look better and more polished. I was recently turned onto a makeup artist named, Kandee Johnson, that I am totally fan girling over. I’m sure you’ve heard of her but if you haven’t, check her Youtube channel out HERE. In one of Kandee’s videos I watched (I watched probably 30 of them on the day I found her) she talked about this primer. I bought this primer and 3 other products she recommended in that video and I was not let down. This stuff is super hydrating and helps my makeup last longer. And… it feels amazing on my skin.

Finding the perfect blush can be exhausting. Whether you are looking to warm up your complexion, add a young and fresh glow or highlight your amazing cheekbones, there are a million colors and brands to choose from and it can become overwhelming. And bad blush is…. well… BAD. These are 3 of my favorite colors! I tend to wear more pink on my cheeks than peaches, reds or browns but these 3 shades will work with almost any skin-tone.
e.l.f. Baked Highlighter in Pink Diamonds // Bobbi Brown blush in Pale Pink // Amazonian Clay 12-Hour blush in paaarty
This e.l.f. Baked Highlighter is light and shimmery! I like to use it on top of my other blushes. It illuminates and highlights your skin. This little compact is infused with Vitamin E, Jojoba, Sunflower, Apricot and Grape. What?! Yep, you read that right. Apply this shimmering color wet or dry. I’ve even used it on the inner corners of my eyes, and as an eyeshadow. Win, win, win!
This blush is a bit more pigmented than the others I use. Bobbi Brown makes the silkiest and smoothest makeup. This blush gives your cheeks a natural-looking pop of PINK! I like to wear this color more in the summer when my skin tone is a bit darker. It has a matte finish and glides on smoothly for a long-lasting wear.
Truth be told… THIS blush is my all-time FAVE! I wear this color on my cheeks on most days. It is solar-baked and promises to last up to 12 hours. The name comes from the fact that this blush is infused with natural clay that has been harvested from the banks of the Amazon River and baked by the sun. Well, ok then! This color fits all skin types. Got oily skin? The clay in this blush minimizes oil in and around pores. Got dry skin? The clay in this blush has nourishing and hydrating properties which help restore skin’s moisture. Combo skin? Don’t worry, you can rely on its ability to restore your “complexion harmony.” Just trust me, this blush is the BOMB.
I am always up to try a new brand or color so send me your faves! I’d love to hear from you!

Hang in there hot stuff! One more day!
While most of us are undoubtedly filling our 4 day weekend with hot dogs, celebration and fun in the sun, don’t forget to take a moment to remember what Memorial Day is truly about. Today we must remember the courageous men and women who have payed the ultimate price for our freedoms. Memorial day is for those who have died during combat while serving this great nation. Today while you are drinking beer and floating in a pool, take notice at the flags that are flying at half staff… don’t forget to pause for a National Moment of Remembrance at 3pm local time… for this holiday is more than what we give it.
“I am oppressed with a sense of the impropriety of uttering words on this occasion […] If silence is ever golden, it must be beside the graves of fifteen-thousand men, whose lives were more significant than speech, and whose death was a poem the music of which can never be sung.”
James A. Garfield – Civil War General, Republican Congressman and 20th U.S. President
