If your New Year’s resolution was to get/stay in shape – how’s that going? I know for me, I strive to maintain my daily workout routine but some days it’s just too hard to get to the gym! So I found few simple ways to workout at home that only require minimal and affordable equipment.
The winter months can not only leave your bones shaking but leave your skin feeling dry and flaky. Even here in sunny California where we escaped the Polar Vortex but not the Santa Ana winds (which can feel like walking into hairdryer) the weather can take every bit of moisture out of your skin. So put some back in! Here are some of my favorite moisturizers* for the winter – and year round!
Lancôme High Résolution Night Refill-3X™
Let your skin repair itself as you sleep, this rich cream drenches you face in triple anti-aging ingredients to improve softness, elasticity and reduce fine lines.
Lancôme High Résolution Eye Refill-3X™
My all-time favorite eye cream! This rich moisturizer stays dewy all night and quenches the delicate skin around your eyes, gently plumps skin to reduce fine lines and improves the appearance of dark circles.
Jouer Cosmetics Lip Enhancer
Go beyond the everyday lip balm to this lip nourishing moisture cream. Leaves lips super soft, with a light pink tint and offers a gentle plumping action that reduces fine lines that can cause lipstick feathering.
Soap & Glory Heel Genius™ Amazing Foot Cream
Just because your feet are covered in warm sock isn’t a reason to let them go. This specialized formula just for dryness-prone skin on your feet will fix them right up and leave them with a sweet floral scent.
The New Girl Expo opened its doors in LA this past weekend to allow us girls to do some serious holiday gift shopping. Taking place at the California Mart Downtown, there were vendors filling the floorspace with shopping opportunities from makeup to purses, jewelry, clothes and hair extensions. There were also several makeup demos and even a pole dancing demo from X-Pole.
There were also beauty and fashion blogger panels, hosted by Roxy Limon talking about what it takes to be a blogger and what inspires them to share their looks and product finds. (See blogger list below.)
And when it all became too much, you could step over to the Tasting Lounge for free drinks and treats.
New Girl Expo was founded by Ashley Leon as a way to help her find her fashion style and help others too. The Expo is held in Los Angeles twice a year.

The holiday season is upon us and for many of you, that means travel time. Whether you are taking some time off to visit an exotic location or going to visit family, packing is always a daunting task. I’ve been lucky enough to have done a lot of traveling domestically and in Europe, so I’ve learned a few packing tricks – especially for all those beauty products! – to make the experience a little smoother. Check out my video of packing tips:
If you dye your hair, you know the constant race to keep up with your roots coming in. With our busy lives, sometimes we just don’t have time to hit the salon or do an at-home dye job every six weeks, which is usually when your roots start to make themselves obvious.
So here are some quick and easy ways to cover them up!
Health and fitness play a big role in my life. I have a pretty active schedule and I can’t do it if I don’t take care of myself. Plus, you wanna look good, right? I recently went through a little transformation of my workout routine (which I’ll share in a future blog) and my diet. I wanted to share a bit of what I learned and some good snacking options if you are looking for healthy alternatives or are on a low carb /low sugar /high protein diet like me.
