The Compassionate Chick's Guide to DIY Beauty by Sunny Subramanian & Chrystle Fiedler

Hi ya Gorgeous,
Say hello to the last day of August. Wow.

I read alot and received a sample book of  The Compassionate Chick's Guide to DIY Beauty and let's just say I love it.

I have tried a few of the recipes and enjoyed them and think that these recipes will make for the most amazing holiday gifts...that is if I can get them made in time!

The book is full of 125 recipes for vegan, gluten free, cruelty free makeup, skin and hair products and many - I mean many of the ingredients are in your kitchen right now!

It could be a lil bit of an investment of time and money to gather your containers, but other than that, these recipes can help heal you through some health issues or sensitivities.

I really enjoyed the book and I think you might too!

Labor Day weekend perfume - Katy Perry Mad Love - exclusively at Kohl's

Hi ya Gorgeous,
Whoa. I literally catch myself saying "whoa" outloud, like Neo in the Matrix. Or maybe more like Bill from the excellent adventure because I can hardly believe the month is over and the year is near the end.


So Labor Day weekend is here and I was going to travel and now I may work an event. Geez.

While I get ready for that, here is a fragrance recommendation for the holiday weekend.

Have you tried the new Katy Perry scent, Mad Love? I prefer the Killer Queen fragrance though this is a nice light scent, that is a bit warm and toasty in my opinion and a great weekend scent and way to transition into the Fall season and heavier, spicier more exotic scents for the holiday season and cooler weather.

 It's about $30 and exclusively at Kohl's. Here is a more detailed review from

Successor of last year’s edition Katy Perry's Mad Potion arrive son the market in June 2016 in pale pink flacon with a ball-shaped cap in white marble. Outer carton is designed in the same style, combining pastel pink with elegant white marble. The second Mad edition was announced as a perfume whose power we won’t be able to resist!
Katy Perry's Mad Potion is the first fragrance presented since Katy Perry has been collaborating with Coty, created a a new ‘pillar’ of her perfume line. The new edition Mad Love raised a lot of dust in the media because it is speculated that its name was actually inspired by verses of the song by Taylor Swift Bad Blood, "You know it used to be mad love".
Unlike last year’s edition where the accent was on a combination of vanilla, musk and orchid, the new fragrance KATY PERRY'S MAD LOVE highlights juicy fruity notes of lady apple sorbet, mara strawberry and pink grapefruit, established as key notes of the composition. The heart is composed of bleeding heart flower, peony and jasmine. Sensuality and warmth is provided by velvety musk while precious woody notes of sandalwood and coconut contribute to depth and longevity of the composition.
Exclusively presented and available at Kohl, fragrance Mad Love attracts attention with its design and details. A love arrow is illustrated on the neck of the bottle, while a relief ehart with inscribed name of the fragrance decorates the body of the bottle. Mad Love can be obtained as a 30ml Eau de Parfum.
Perfume rating: 3.09 out of 5 with 34 votes.

Biore Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub review

Hi ya Gorgeous!

If you haven't seen today's video on the Makeup University channel for "Love it or Leave it" you need too!

 Sideways thought: last night was the Mtv VMA's (video music awards) and it was such a non-thing, like - for me, nothing stood out as wow enough to write or create a look video about.

It was nice that Brittney Spears came back to perform after 10 years, and I have a press post coming up for that, but that's about it for me.

Curious, what about you? Any thoughts on the MTV VMA's?

So next up is a more in depth review of the Biore Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub.

You can find it at Ulta Beauty, Amazon and Walmart for about $10. It's 4.5 ounces and a little bit goes a long way. I find that on me, it doesn't rinse very well, like my face feels a bit slimy and someone else could interpret that feeling as being "smooth" or soft.

I think my biggest hang up on this product is that it's baking soda, silica to make it slippery and menthol to add a tingle to the wash which can mimic a "clean" feeling.

I'm a fan of the Biore brand, I think that this just isn't a favorite for me. You could get just as good an exfoliation treatment and cleansing of the skin using plain baking soda and a plain washcloth it just wouldn't be foamy.

It's worth a try if you have a coupon or find it on sale or you like gimmicky skincare.

Amazon  (This is an affiliate link and I get a penny if you click it, so please, click it)

About the Product
  • Activates with water for a deep clean and gentle exfoliation
  • Concentrated powder scrub cleanses and exfoliates pores 2.9x better without over scrubbing
  • Powder scrub removes oil from your T-zone while also exfoliating dry, flaky skin just by adding water
  • Great for Combination Skin

What does tired summer skin need? CerumWORX Retinol & Resveratrol in Microsponge by Dermworx

Hi ya Gorgeous!
 In Arizona, it feels like summer will never end. Or it's heat. Or it's searing of my flesh the moment I open the back door to let the dog out at "pee o'clock" in the morning.

Back to School season is underway, football tailgating season is starting, and then you and I both know the very vast and short and all too slippery slope into holiday.

So how's a gal to keep herself photo ready?

Try the capsules from Dermworx in the CerumWORX line. It's portable and easy to travel with and you can take them easily in a gym bag, as well as have bed side for a final ditch effort at skincare before you turn out the light when you are beyond tired.

 Ok my personal experience is that these little goodies are awesome. I do not experience stinging or tingle even. They are smooth and I apply before my moisturizer. One note though: call it a big face or a fat head, I personally have to use 2-3 to cover my face and neck. One per side of face, one on the neck.

Worth it? I think so! Here are some details from the website, be sure and visit!

Product Description

This nighttime rejuvenation formula combines both Retinol + Resveratrol in time-release Microsponge® delivery technology for a gentle long-lasting application.

Labor Day Weekend sunglasses style with

Hi ya Gorgeous!
I recently had the chance to test run and try out a pair of sunglasses from the online retailer,
Thank you very much for the sample and chance to review.

I live in Arizona and it's hot and sunny 363 days a year-the other 2 days it's partly cloudy. Or at least that is what it feels like in this 115 degree day!

Each pair of glasses comes in a sturdy case for protecting your glasses and a lens cleaning wipe. ( Which I have also used to clean my phone and now I'm concerned of what it may have picked up and now that funk is sitting on my glasses next to my eye...)

There is a wide selection and filling a prescription in your choice of frames is a simple process. The glasses will arrive in a secure and protective mailing tube.

I like the pair I chose, I just wish that they were bigger and more bug eye like my normal pairs to protect the delicate skin around the eye.

So you don't make the same boo boo that I did, when selecting your glasses, look for the mm size to be sure they are as large as you like.

 There are so many choices to choose from and if you shop today, you can get them in time for some chic Labor Day Weekend selfies in some big bug eye'd styling sunglasses!

MANUVERSITY: Part 2 - Meet Schulz & Malley with model Austin Buchanan

Hi ya Gorgeous!

To continue my MANUVERSITY series, this blog post  features an amazing "MAN" made for men skincare line.  I think it would be perfect for guys going back to school (BTS) or even some Labor Day weekend travel (LDW) and man gifts too!

Special thanks to my model Austin Buchanan for letting me demo the product on him.

Austin is an actor, writer, producer, model and all around talent in Arizona.

You should check out his channel here:

Now meet Schulz&Malley!

Here's a little more about their story:
" This is no fly-by attempt to look like a men’s brand.  This is a men’s brand.

Our competition says that “male shoppers like to see the words ‘For Men’ on the label.”  By contrast, our products are for men simply because men like them and men use them.

Our competition may tell you that some product is, for example, an “Ultimate Men’s Skin Routine.”  We just say to you that, when you try our products, you will know it’s your routine.

We did not create our brand because of some marketing study that says it sounds familiar or because it sounds like some fictitious dudes you might like to have a beer with.  Our brand is who we are.  You are going to remember us because you will like the quality and performance of our products.

We are Schulz and Malley Trading Company.  It’s that simple. "

It's available here: or the main website

Get some for back to school, Labor day weekend travel or think ahead to the holidays and consider it for a gift!

TGIF with hangover skin tips from Dr Kaleroy Papantoniou

Hi ya Gorgeous!

TGIF! Woo hoo! Shabbat Shalom starts in 10 short hours...sort of...I'm working on set and the hours are long. No worries, I love it.

 Photo courtesy of Firafly Photography

 So while I am out busy as a bee...enjoy this guest blog post and it's very timely tips as the Labor Day Weekend and mass bbq'ing and libations may happen!


What to Do When Libations Take a Toll on Your Skin

Before stepping out for that weekly happy hour think about how those libations may impact your skin. What many people don’t realize is that drinking alcohol in excess can have a negative impact on our appearance. Alcohol dehydrates your body including the skin, your body’s largest organ. This happens every time you drink. Extra cocktails can be adding years to your face in the form of wrinkles, poor texture and lack of radiance.

Dr. Kaleroy Papantoniou, Board Certified Dermatologist from New York explains that frequent alcohol consumption is also thought to deprive the skin of vital vitamins and nutrients. “Over time, drinking heavily can have other, more permanent, detrimental effects on your skin. Rosacea, a skin disorder that starts with a tendency to blush and flush easily and can eventually lead to facial disfigurement, is linked to alcohol. Since alcohol increases your blood flow, it often causes blood vessels in your face to dilate (sometimes permanently) and often burst, leaving behind broken capillaries and red spots that are difficult to get rid of,” offers Dr. Papantoniou.  

Here’s a look at what alcohol can do to wreak havoc on your appearance.
Brittle hair.
What's worse, drinking too much doesn't only affect the appearance of your skin; it will dehydrate your hair, making it more prone to breaking and split ends. Weak, brittle hair in addition to premature wrinkling, can easily add 10 years to someone’s appearance.

Dark circles, bloodshot eyes and even blindness.
In much the same way that alcohol causes broken capillaries on your face, it irritates and enlarges the tiny blood vessels on the surface of your eye (the sclera) causing a "bloodshot" appearance. If vanity doesn’t get your attention, how about blindness? “Because excessive drinking robs the body of some nutrients required to maintain eye health, it can lead to a condition called alcoholic optic neuritis, which impairs eyesight and, over time, can result in blindness,” cautions Dr. Papantoniou.

Some tips to avoid a “skin hangover” include…

1. Stay hydrated.
Aside from giving up booze altogether, Dr. Papantoniou says it is possible to minimize the unwanted effects of alcohol by constantly staying hydrated. “That means drinking a full glass of water for every cocktail you have. Drink even more water before you go to bed to flush the alcohol out of your system so you wake up less dehydrated, puffy and flushed,” she advises.

2. Take care of your skin before bed.
Taking care of your skin before hitting the sack is also crucial. Dr. Papantoniou advises fully washing your face and then applying a moisturizer, like a hydrating serum before getting into bed. “Sleeping with dirty skin makes it prone to clogged pores and acne.”

3. Prop pillows and use tea.
One of the best ways to minimize the eye and face puffiness is to sleep on two pillows, slightly propped up. In the morning, rubbing ice cubes all over your face helps, too. “One of the best ways to deflate eye puffiness and reduce the redness is to place cold tea bags over the eyes. The tannins in the tea help constrict blood vessels,” adds Dr. Papantoniou.

4. Cover up what you can’t cure.
To camouflage the redness in the face, use a green-tinted primer before applying makeup, which should help neutralize any redness. If you must use foundation, look for a lightweight, moisturizing formula.  Avoid powders, as they are often more drying. 

5. Consider lasers.
When at-home remedies aren’t making much of a difference. There are pricier measures you can take to minimize the effects of alcohol. “Certain laser treatments can reduce redness and spider veins on the face. It’s important to see someone who is well trained to administer the laser treatment,” suggests Dr. Papantoniou.

6. Choose your booze wisely.
If you are going to consume alcohol know that different alcohols have different effects on the skin, but as a general rule, the clearer, the better. Vodka, gin, and tequila leave your system quicker. “If you’re going to drink anything, drink vodka that doesn’t have a grain in it, like potato vodka. It’s a lot clearer and smoother, so it gets in and out of your body quickly,” says Dr. Papantoniou. Most dermatologists agree that although everyone metabolizes alcohol differently, if you can remember to drink in moderation and stay hydrated, you can save your skin.

7 Quick Fixes That Reverse the Aging Process

Hi ya Gorgeous!
TGIF! Today I share a quick guest blog post from Maya over at Sebamed for the Moms who are stressed out and finally have a moment to themselves now that the kids are back in school!

Enjoy the post and remember to pick up some of your favorite Sebamed products!

Many women dread the aging process, panicking as soon as they spot a fine line or a gray hair. While it can be nerve-wracking, especially when it comes to braving the anti-aging products section at the drugstore, there are easy changes you can make to stop aging in its tracks. These seven quick fixes will keep you looking more youthful and vibrant longer, and surprise! They don’t involve any injections or invasive surgeries!
Wash Your Face
Washing your face before bed is a must. Even if you’re past your acne years, aren’t feeling particularly greasy, or haven’t done anything all day, it doesn’t mean that your face is perfectly clean. There’s a possibility that pollutants in the air can become trapped in your pores. If you don’t wash your face often, those harmful chemicals can speed up the aging process. Besides, it’s always nice to feel refreshed before you hit the hay.
Put Your Stunna Shades On
I for one love a good pair of sunglasses. They take my look to the next level all while protecting my eyes. The skin around our eyes is particularly thin, so it’s more prone to fine lines earlier in life. Keep the wrinkles at bay by throwing on your favorite shades in addition to applying sunscreen. The bigger and darker, the better.
Don’t Worry, Be Happy
Between working, spending time with family, and trying to find the time to take care of ourselves, it’s no wonder that worry lines can find their way onto our foreheads. So, find what makes you happy, whether it’s brunching with the girls, jogs in the park, or a trip to the beach, and do more of it, while wearing sunscreen of course.
Go Strawless
Drinking from a straw is easy, especially at restaurants or coffee shops where your drink already has a straw in it. But, straws cause you to purse your lips repeatedly, which can cause fine lines and wrinkles around your mouth. Instead, opt to drink directly from the glass, cup, or bottle. No repetitive motion, less chance of wrinkles.
Make a Smoothie
We’ve all seen those Instagram pictures of gorgeous smoothies that make us hungry and a little envious. Turns out that jumping on the smoothie bandwagon can have anti-aging benefits. Berries are rich in antioxidants, which help slow the aging process. Smoothies also let you work other superfoods, like leafy greens or nuts seamlessly into your diet. It’s a delicious way to improve your overall health.
Keep Tension Out of Your Neck
While exercising, it’s easy to clench your neck without realizing it. Tightening up your muscles like that can pull your facial features down, making you look saggy and intensifying the appearance of the veins in your neck. So, next time you hit the gym, relax a little. It’s only a workout.
Get Some Zs
Everyone sings the praises of sleep, and for a good reason. Besides helping to decrease the appearance of dark under-eye circles, getting your 8 hours keeps your skin dewy and firm. Bonus points if you opt for a satin pillowcase and sleep on your back to prevent the skin on your face from being pulled in your sleep.
