The Price of Beauty

I have discovered a new staple to my week and that is to watch Jessica Simpson's show: The Price of Beauty.
To hear what it's all about, follow this link:

Jessica is someone I admire SO much! I love this girl and feel she is a shining example of beauty inside and out. I was fortunate enough to meet her in 2008 which was the start of her roughest time, I only wish I could meet her again to tell her how strong I think she is and how much I admire her for what she has overcome.

Beauty Tip: MOISTURIZE

I know it's been a while...school and work are kicking my butt and making me busier than I have ever been!
I have been learning SO much and wanted to share a beauty tip with you...
MOISTURIZE, MOISTURIZE, MOISTURIZE!
As soon as you get out of the shower you have exactly 3 minutes for your skin to penetrate the moisturizer you put on top of it most so hurry, hurry, hurry and dry off once you are out of the shower so that you can quickly apply: eye cream, facial lotion, and body lotion-in that order!

Esthetic School


Tomorrow I start Esthetic School and at The California Academy through the Skin Academy program and am SO excited! Going to esthetic school was already living my dream but going to a Paul Mitchell school is the greatest surprise! I am so grateful for everything that lead me to choose this particular school because two weeks ago I had no idea where I would be attending school or if I would even be able to go at all...it's a long story but the moral is that sometimes when obstacles are placed before you and you can't seem to make it through them it's God's way of saying "This is not right." In my case the decision to start school was right but the place was all wrong, I am just thrilled that the right place for me is a place that always seemed out of reach and yet it's where I'm meant to go...it's crazy!

Happy Birthday to me!

Those of you who know me know how much I adore Barbies. And others of you may also know that I am a sucker for Project Runway and Heidi Klum. I think Heidi Klum and Barbie may be the two most beautiful women ever!
This is the birthday gift I bought myself tonight...

Heidi Klum as Barbie...you can't get much better than that!

A Girl's Gotta Have Mascara...

...No matter what the age!





My friend's baby got into her mascara the other day and I just thought this was so funny!

Quote of the Week:

It is my birthday today and unfortunately I am sick so will be celebrating tomorrow...crossing my fingers that I feel better! But on this day, my birthday I was given a special card from the women in my church along with this quote:

"The only way to get through life is to laugh your way through it. You either have to laugh or cry. I prefer to laugh. Crying gives me a headache."
-Margorie Pay Hinckley
