Makeup: Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara

Sep 24, 2012 by

Finding the right mascara can be a pain in the butt! Considering there are thousands of brands on the market. Each one promising you something amazing but later, flakes or leaves you with raccoon eyes. Imagine testing them all? Sounds like an eye infection waiting to happen. Fortunately, there’s Giorgio Armani’s “Eyes to Kill Mascara!”  This mascara contains fine, fluid Micro-fil™ technology that dramatically enhances the texture of your lashes. The micro-wax technology allows for quick, smooth, and easy application. Eyes to Kill is great for those individuals who like volume, length and drama. Trust me, I’ve tried this on so many women with with short lashes, fine lashes, straight lashes… You name it! Not one single complaint. If you can fork out $30+ for a tube, I totally know you’ll love it.

HAIRCARE: MY REVIEW OF OBLIPHICA HAIRCARE

Sep 7, 2012 by

Celebrity hairstylist John Blaine, also Creative Director and co-owner of professional hair company Obliphica recently sent me a package of 2 professional Obliphica products to review. Honestly, I’ve tried so many hair products on the market! And once upon a time, yours truly had long lovely locks that were shiny and bouncy. The maintenance was just too much! So one day I decided to chop it all off. My curls still remain but the length is now only about 3 inches long, whereas back then it was shoulder length or even longer. You can imagine how much product I went through!

The 2 Obliphica products I got to try were: Professional Treatment Shampoo and Professional Treatment Hair Mask. At first glance, the packaging was decent… I’m totally about presentation. I opened up the shampoo, and the smelled the aroma; wasn’t too strong–a soft sweet scent. The treatment mask had a slightly stronger scent but both were pleasant and not too overpowering. My hair was ready for a test-drive!

Living in LA, you get lots of build up on scalp and hair (Pollution, Dust, Products, etc.). So when it comes to a shampoo, I’d prefer it to lather. The first product was the Treatment Shampoo; a gel-like consistency had me question if it would leave my hair dry. After the 1-2 minute test-drive, my hair felt smooth after the rinse. Not bad. Next was the Treatment Hair Mask; a creamy texture, and the aroma smelled even better when applied to hair and scalp. For a while now, I’ve been using the L’Oreal Professional Intense Repair. But after the rinse (3 minutes later), my hair felt unbelievably soft-silky and smooth!

After 1 week of use, my hair has been much easier to manage and the curls are definitely shinier. Overall, I say these 2 products are winners! Unfortunately, I have parted ways with L’Oreal Professional Intense Repair and have now found my new current favorite. Now I see why so many celebrities are ranting and raving about this line. It really works!

So what makes Obliphica so Amazing? Well here’s a list of the Benefits:

1. Sea Buckthorn Extract, farmed 14 thousand feet in the Himalaya Mountains and Siberia, this fruit contains chemicals that cure certain diseases, and western doctors like Dr. Oz is calling it the “New Miracle Fruit”, all its full properties are just being discovered now by the west. But its been used in the East for centuries to heal many illnesses and improve health.

2. Hair at its most healthy state contains 19 amino acids… Obliphica has 18 of them in concentrated form.

3. The vitamin count in Obliphica products is through the roof!.. Vitamin C alone is at 14 times of an orange.

4. Obliphica promotes and repairs damaged hair back as far as nature will allow. There is no true fountain of youth.. But for hair, Obliphica comes as close to that as possible so.

John Blaine writes says, “Macy Gray, Dita Von Teese, Lucy Liu, and many other celebrities are fans of Obliphica!” Here’s a video of some of the clients:

FASHION’S NIGHT OUT!

Sep 7, 2012 by

For those of you who don’t know what “FASHION’S NIGHT OUT” is… It’s an amazing celebration of fashion! Every year this event happens, and the most stylish fashionistas all come out to celebrate with champagne, music, delectable delights, and lots of shopping. Because I reside in Beverly Hills, I’m very fortunate to get invited to all the Fashion’s Night Out parties in the Golden Triangle 😉

This year I attended Neiman Marcus’ and Saks Fashion’s Night Out event. Two words, “Absolutely Amazing!” Many of the socialites and celebs came out to play. Last year Paula Abdul and a few other Starlets attended the Saks F.N.O., and that was sure memorable. This year I was right next to Larry King shopping at Neiman Marcus! I also ran into one of my favorite Swedish models, AnnaMaria Mostrom. Stores had models strutting the runway, stairway, you name it. And Dj’s played great music to enhance the shopping experience for all! Fun Fun Fun!

HEALTH TIP: BENEFITS OF SILVER

Sep 6, 2012 by

The benefits of Silver has long been known by ancient cultures all around the world. Till this day, people still eat with Silver utensils out of Silver bowls, and drink out of Silver vessels. But why Silver? This amazing metal is actually a natural killer of germs. Notice how when you are shopping at a health food store, you’ll find Silver in the Cold/Flu section. When germs are exposed to Silver, they die within 2-6 minutes depending on the strand. So pretty much, this wonder metal is a NATURAL anti-biotic.

Silver (Colloidal Silver) can also be applied topically to prevent wounds from getting infected. Acne-Prone skin also benefits with topical application—Mine sure did. When certain poisons come into contact with Silver, the metal oxidizes allowing you to know if it’s a toxic substance you’re consuming (Royalty and the Ancients knew this).  Silver coins can also be used to destroy germs on hands as well as dropped into milk or liquids to extend shelf-life. There are so many benefits and uses for silver and I can attest because I use Silverware, Silver Pitchers, Silver Chopsticks, and Coins… Just a little Ancient Wisdom.
