Luminous Holiday Makeup Look with Estee Lauder

Beauty/ Makeup

Today I’ve partnered with Estee Lauder to show you a luminous holiday makeup look using all of my favorite products from Estee Lauder! I’m focusing more on my skin which is something I prefer to do as is and keep everything else a little more minimal. When you have great skin, why not capitalize on it and make that the focal point, right?!

Below are all the products used to get the look!

Foundation // Highlighter // Bronzer // Blush // Brow Gel
Eyeshadow // Lipgloss

Hope you guys enjoy!

I have to tell you guys, the day I shot these photos there was a slight wind storm going on in San Diego, so forgive the hair – it was wild, and cold! So here is a funny story – before this shoot, I was actually headed to the dentist for my regular check up/cleaning appointment and I of course wanted to be bundled up and cozy for the cold day and just overall comfortable. First thing my dentist said to me when he walked in and saw me laying on the chair was, “cute shoes!!” Either he was trying to butter me up OR he totally got the memo, right? I was pretty excited because I had just gotten these little booties the other day from Payless because I was looking for an affordable up to date pair. They were such a great value, I couldn’t leave without them! Which leads me to my next point. You guys have to give Payless a visit this holiday season since they offer amazing style, quality and comfort at a price that really won’t break the budget or holiday shopping list!

Can you believe the end of the year is upon us?! I surely can’t. I say this every year but I just don’t understand how the years fly by. It’s like summer hits and then poof it’s a new year! I have to admit though, I do love the holidays and I am loving the slightly cooler weather. I dressed up this faux suede skirt today with some cozy items up top and of course my classic Naturalizer Michelle pump that I’ve been wearing a lot this fall/winter! I think I just love them so much because of the heel height and how I can walk around in them all day and/or night and not feel pain which is amazing for me. Again, a good pair of nude pumps is a must for any gal since they go with virtually everything any time of the year so if you don’t have a pair its time to get some ASAP! Hope you guys enjoy the look!

Layered Up


Big thanks to Target for sponsoring this post. targetstyle vest Olia TargetStyle Layered targetstyle boots targetstyle outfit daniel wellington watch

Fall is all about layering, and that is exactly what I wanted to focus on with today’s post! With a variety of patterned tops, cozy sweaters, and fuzzy vests, scarves and ponchos, you can really layer in so many unique and stylish ways! Today, I took this simple turtleneck and wore it with this fuzzy vest from Target, which I love. I have to admit, I feel like everyone I walked by secretly wanted to snatch it off me—it’s that good. Plus, it’s so warm and an AMAZING layering piece over virtually anything.

As an accessory, I wanted to add a beanie to my look, which helps add warmth while also layering the look as well! Target has many different color options and a variety of styles for items like these as well!

To add even more layers to the look, I went for some boot socks, bunched them up and wore them above my jeans. That way, when I pulled my boots on, you could still see the socks peeking out, giving multiple layers to the look.

This fall and winter, I encourage you guys to try layering for yourself. Think outside the box, and don’t be afraid to try something new! Experiment with different materials, pieces and styles for dramatic yet stylish looks that keep you cozy-chic while sporting the trend!

Going Bare: Tria Hair Removal Laser 4x Review | Part 3


tria laser hair removal

The last of my  Tria Hair Removal Laser 4x 3 part series is here!! If you guys have been following along and reading the two previous posts then you’ve probably seen my transition of how I’ve incorporated the  Tria Hair Removal Laser 4x into my weekly/monthly routine and what I started the think about it.

Today I wanted to round up my last and final thoughts about the laser and the results I actually felt that I got from it!

So my first post was back on October 13th which means I’ve been using the laser a little over a month now. It’s given me ample time to try it out, get a feel for it and figure out what I like and don’t like about it however I will say, I do feel I need a little more time to see the long term effects of the hair growth or should I say the NON hair growth.

Catch my drift?

There really isn’t too much to say about what I don’t like about the device other than a few little zaps here and there. But what do you expect? No pain, no gain right?

As for the hair growth, I have to say I notice a dramatic difference in the growth of my hair! I mentioned, I have been focusing on my arms, bikini, upper lip and legs and I have seen an immediate difference in my arms and legs right off the bat. I’m not going to lie, I haven’t been AS consistent with my bikini area because it’s a bit more painful (but still tolerable) so I’ve been doing it every other time although I need just man up and get to it! I’m just like that, when it used to come to waxing, I’d wait until the last possible moment to wax as well – I mean, who likes any kind of wax or laser on the bikini area, you know?!

Regardless of my cowardliness — it works! And remember, you can turn the strength down so that it doesn’t hurt as much as well – each area just has a different kind of sensitivity. For example, my bikini area is much more sensitive than my arms and I can do a level 4 setting on my arms and maybe a level 1 or 2 setting on my bikini. Just see what works and stick with it and be consistent.

All in all, such a wonderful machine I would recommend to ANYONE thinking about laser hair removal! It’s a convenient at home way to achieve those results and something you can continue to maintain as well — plus it ACTUALLY works!

I also think it would make an amazing gift for the holidays so make sure to check it out here for more info and where to purchase!
