Don’t Give Up

   When my sister and I went shopping the other day, she suggested that we stop into Forever 21. I was very hesitant, but agreed to go in. I browsed around the store feeling, well, old. I am 30 now, which is far away from being 21 and my lifestyle and body has changed quite… Read more »

Stuffed Zuccini 

Being creative with little time to prep for dinner is pretty difficult. I’m a big fan of buying bulk protein to freeze so I always have something on hand to make for dinners.

Brace Yourself

I’m sure you’ve heard of “stacking” or the term “arm party”. This phenomenon has been around for a few years now and the possibilities are endless.

Spice Up Your Loaf

I cook with ground turkey a ton! It’s lean, healthy and easy to use in recipes. I’m a huge fan of anything I can prepare earlier in the day and pop into the oven later on, that’s why meatloaf is so appealing. I’ve made my mom’s meatloaf many times and it’s always a good choice… Read more »

The makeup game changer 

Women are always complaining about the same issues when it comes to eyeshadow application. How long will my eyeshadow last and will it crease?     I had the same issues when I first started wearing makeup. I loved the look but hated the wear. That’s until I started using M.A.C’s ‘Pro Longwear’ Paint Pot in ‘Painterly’…. Read more »

I am fortunate enough to work for my family’s publishing business doing advertising coordination and styling photo shoots for product and fashion as well.  My family publishes a local magazine in Scottsdale, Arizona called So… Read more »

Rules Are Meant to Be Broken 

Who says you can’t wear white after Labor Day?! I believe that’s an old fashion myth to get all consumers to start the fall fashion hoarding. Here in Arizona it usually doesn’t start to cool down until the end of October, making it hard to start buying for fall so early in the year. This… Read more »
