Like most, my resolutions begin with health and fitness. Two items that I would say I’m pretty average range at. Tighten up my beauty routine in [...]
I have a confession to make: I am horrible about taking care of my teeth. Something which my dentist can attest to. My daily indulgences of caffeine are catching up to me and now the whole world can see, that yes, I am a coffee drinker. It is no longer that radiant smile that I [...]
Lately I’ve been under more stress than what I would like. Partly because it’s in my nature and partly because I have to find a new place to live – never a fun experience in Los Angeles. So I’ve been faking my way through the day by covering up my tired skin and those lovely [...]

Luckily for me the first weekend brought wonderful weather filled with rain, sunshine, a hologram, special guest appearances (like adorable Kimbra) and perfect temperatures.
