Question Yourself.

Amongst all the madness we encounter on a daily basis, we must always find time to unwind or take care of ourselves and only ourselves for just a second. At least that’s what I tell myself…does it happen? More or less.
Like giving up your childhood and moving away from your family to train for the Olympics, the things we want so badly that we can feel its passion under our skin and in our bones, don’t seem to come easily. We all have experienced what that feels like—going to the gym everyday and not seeing a six pack in the mirror, doing the extra credit assignment and still not getting the “A,” going on a million auditions and not booking the part when you’ve spent hours breaking down the script….Yup, I’ve had some experience with that. We like to think we put our hearts into everything we do because it feels good and is damn reassuring when the moment is right and it all pays off! But what about those moments where things don’t go the way we wanted, or expected…what do we do then? People always say, “get back up again” or “don’t give up,” which is definitely true to an extent. But I’m doing this new thing where I try to give less energy and importance to those moments that don’t work out. Instead of allowing those moments to fuel our anger and frustration, we have to try to recognize what isn’t working and re-approach whatever we are doing to MAKE IT WORK! We are in control of our lives and we have the power to lead ourselves in a specific direction every single day. I can’t say that I have the answer or have necessarily figured it out, but Im trying to find the beauty in the mistakes and imperfections, and most of all I’m trying to learn from what brings me down, baffles me, and makes me question all my hard work, passion and heart. I think it’s healthy to question ourselves and our surroundings because we are the only person who can truly look out for “I.” So allow the frustration and dissatisfaction to fuel your spirit.

Much love to all of you,

I was in a “food for thought” kinda mood.

XOXO LIZZY

I don't even know why I'm smiling.

Might as well face it.. your addicted

Might as well face it..us women are addicted to skin care. Am I right? We are always striving to find the next best thing to help rid us of those pesky age spots, wrinkles etc. to help reveal the youthful skin underneath! On top of that with being on the go all the time, getting to spend time in a spa is just not on the schedule. Now you no longer have to worry about fitting the spa into your schedule when you get the Kelley West Microderm360.

Kelley West, a licensed medical aesthetician recently created her at-home head to toe microderm tool to help give you beautiful skin without the salon price. Believe it or not using Kelley’s Microderm360 will save you $289 over the course of 6 months. WOW!!!! But what exactly is the Microderm360 all about? The Microderm360 is like it says… An at-home microdermabrasion system that uses the power of diamond tips and suction to lift off all dead skin cells, unclog pores, smooth out wrinkles, reduce dark spots and it helps exfoliate the skin and evens out your skin tone. It’s even great if you tend to have some very stubborn stretch marks. It’s like a magic wand.

Microderm360

Having extremely oily, acne prone skin myself, I have had many people tell me to get a microdermabrasion treatment but have never had time. Now I can get a quick treatment and help get rid of unwanted ugly skin. Even at 24, it’s essential to get rid of dead skin to keep skin looking fresh.

So what are you waiting for?! Get on over to www.microderm360.com now and get your own “magic wand”. Take some time for yourself today because like I said, might as well face it.. You’re addicted to skincare.

I was not there to witness these amazing works but one look at the photos and I was blown away! The creativity, the thought and just the overall appearance of these creations reminds me of something you would see in fashion magazines, T.V. and movies. I swear every mannequin had a theme. A complete makeover. Everything from hair, makeup and even accessories were included. Honestly, I had to remind myself that they are students! I cannot wait to see who wins and am very excited for Gina. This is going to be an awesome event! I will keep everyone updated with info on the event and more!

PanOxyl Advanced Acne Treatment worked for me and will work for you too!

Unknown-1

As a teenager prone to getting acne, I find myself getting blemishes a lot. And being 18 years old I’ve struggled with having acne prone skin for years. I’ve tried many over the counter products but nothing seemed to ever work for me. But with PanOxyl advanced acne spot treatment I don’t have to worry about my skin nearly as much as I used to. Within just a few days of using this product, I noticed that the bumps reduced and so did the redness. And its all thanks to the main acne fighting ingredient Benzoyl peroxide. It works to dry the blemish out which reduces then size and soon leaves you with clearer skin. If you ever find yourself using products on your acne that don’t seem to be working, you should give PanOxyl Advanced acne treatment a chance.

Top 5 Valentine’s Day Beauty Tips

unnamed-3

Whether it’s a hot date planned with your beau or a girls’ night out, this Valentine’s Day make sure to make a statement with these top five beauty tips. Celebrity makeup artist; who has worked with Meghan Trainor, Brooklyn Decker, Angie Harmon, among others and top fashion brands Oscar de la Renta, Ralph Lauren, Laura Ashley, Perry Ellis, to name a few; provides these tips to create the perfect Valentine’s Day beauty look.

1. Kiss and makeup…

Ditch the traditional “red” lip and go for a more kissable look like a delicious nude color. Try: Philosophy’s lip shine in Coconut Frosting it gives a hint of shimmer with a mild sweet taste.

2. Run your fingers through my hair or maybe not…

Loose the hair spray for the night. Nothing is more un-sexy than hard mane. Touchable, soft hair is always a “do”. Try: Garnier’s Texture Spray for body and bounce without the crunch.

3. Give it a glow…

For a quick J-Lo glow add a few drops of liquid luminizer to your moisturizer. Try: Stila’s All Over Shimmer liquid

4. Got a private beach…

Nothing says red-hot like bronzed skin. Use along the perimeter of your face & jaw bone for a more realistic application. Also pick a brand that doesn’t have too much shimmer. Try: Benefit’s Hoola Bronzer

5. It started with a wink…

Seduction begins with a good mascara! Give your eyes a bambi-like fringe using lash fibers. It coats & builds on the ends of your natural lashes, giving the appearance of falsies. Try: Loreal’s False Fiber Lash Mascara
