MLB THE ROYALS WORLD SERIES HAT

Readers,

Just got my hat in and I love love love it. Go Royals!


Clear Skin-Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Deep Pore Cleansing

Tuesday, November 17, 2015

Readers,

Have I told you I love this stuff? Don't mind the broccoli, I was fitting in this facial during my work lunch break :) I usually leave it on for approximately 20 minutes.  I mix just a little spoonful of the Aztec Clay with another 1 1/2 spoonfuls of Apple Vinegar and then use a foundation brush to mix + smooth onto my skin. I leave it on for about 20 minutes. Don't worry afterwards if your face is a little red, that means it worked! Let me know how it worked for you. I bought my Aztec Clay from my local Nature's Own but you can purchase it online too. The product lasts FOREVER so it should be a staple in your beauty closet for you.

























PS-I was having my lunch break at my house + making this mask. MULTITASKING TO THE RESCUE!

KC Royals Parade Celebration!

Friday, November 6, 2015

GUYS!

So, if you read my blog at all you know I live in Kansas City. I LOVE THIS TOWN. It's the best kept secret in the US, and I love that my team The Royals won The World Series!   (I mean we did wait 30 years for it) My hubby found my amazing vintage 1985 jacket on Ebay for a great price of $50.00 + $10.00 shipping. I wanted to borrow these photos from my wonderful friend Samantha Levi Photography  / Samantha Levi Photography FB  We had such a great day seeing the iconic parade with differing reports of over 400,000 people crammed into our crossroads + downtown KC areas. Thanks for the follow. Expect more posts soon.

Boulevardia KC 2015

Friday, June 19, 2015

Readers!

OMG. I have so many new posts coming soon; thanks for those that are still following my blog. I am still trying to get into a better rhythm on posting more often plus adding enough quantity. I just wanted to do a throwback to #boulevardia last year! I plan to attend this weekend too, so I'll post more pictures soon! (You can tell this was last year because my hair it white now ;)

Small country, big ambition.

Because a desirable society stands on principle and aspires higher, Boulevardia is no everyday experience. It’s a gathering unlike any other, one that elevates and combines the best aspects of beer, food and music festivals to relentlessly reward all who cross over our borders. It honors the rich past of our grounds while setting the agenda for future celebrations and sharing our commitment to important causes. It also highlights our good fortune to be able to regularly drink from our fountain of youth and truth: Boulevard Brewery. So come share it all with us and be a part of local history in the making.

Oscars 2015-Style Inspiration

Thursday, February 26, 2015

Hi friends!

I watched the Oscars last Sunday, so my friend decided to do a fun photo shoot during them. I had so much fun while our make-up artist friend was visiting from LA. I mean free awesome fashion shoots plus getting my makeup done. SIGN ME UP. I have lots of editing to do soon, but wanted to get something up in the meantime. My leather jacket is from The Kooples and my fur pink coat is from Zara. I was lucky to get the pink coat last minute sale during my Miami vacation this month.

Pinch Provisions-Emergency Kit

Thursday, January 15, 2015

READERS!

I received this cute gift from my friend Emily for Christmas and I have to say it's a lifesaver. For those ladies that have bottomless pits for purses, ahem, me, this is so organized for the lady on the go. I did my hair today and forgot to Hairspray it which would've been a disaster because of the Missouri wind, but my kit had a little Hairspray in it. SAVED. This kit is by Pinch Provisions and you can purchase yours a bunch of different places. If you wanted my leopard print one you can buy it directly from Pinch Provisions website. I have a few pictures of my kit as well as a picture of what all fits inside. Pretty amazing for such a small pouch!
