How To Apply Eye Care

Eye’s are beautiful and come in so many different shapes, sizes and colors. They’re the most fragile part of your face. I remember learning this the hard way at an early age. I was 16 and just started as a Beauty Adviser. We had the opportunity to try all of the old and new beauty products from all sorts of brands. Cheap to luxury, all natural to anti-aging.. any brand you can think of, I’ve most likely tried it. One day after work we went to a seminar for NeoStrata. I love their products and know that there is no other like it. The fact that they state the percentage of Glycolic Acid it contains and that you can purchase it from a drug store is a bonus! (Let me know if you want me to do a post about Glycolic Acid in the comments below) Everyone who attended the…

How to Prevent The First Signs of Aging

Wouldn’t you love to just walk out the door sans make up? Let your skin breath, touch your face without make up coming off…ah the possibilities. And there you have it! The first step to preventing the first signs of aging is giving your skin a break. Toss your make up for a day and just give your skin a treat. I remember the day I started giving my skin a break schedule. My cosmetics manager at the time had told me about a story she read.There was a lady in her 40’s who went for plastic surgery and the surgeon found foundation under her skin. Whether it’s true or not- UGH! Gross. You know all those days where you were too tired to take off your make up before bed? Thought it transferred to your pillow only? It didn’t. It lives under your skin and stops oxygen from getting…

Instagram for beginners: How To

You’ve decided to jump on the Instagram bandwagon and don’t know where to start. You’re wondering alright, another application to add to the rest. I’m sure you’ve come across at least one Insta picture without actually downloading the app or even knowing it. It’s everywhere! Your Instagram account can be whatever you want it to be. Just put in thought to your posts and you’ll see your followers grow. If you’re not sure what to post on Instagram, try doing A/B testing. Post different pictures and see what your fans prefer. Whichever images get the most likes, that is your category to target. Keep in mind not everyone on Instagram has the goal to gain followers or likes. Some are on Instagram to promote their products, brand, post their opinions, speak out for a cause or a place to be recognized for their awesome food pictures. What ever it may…

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

My obsession for chocolate chip banana bread believe it or not was purchasing a loaf from the Forest Hill Shoppers Drug Mart. It was the perfect balance of sweet, yet salty and moist. My advice for this recipe is tweak it where you need to in order to get to perfection. Your perfection could differ from mine by a 1/2 teaspoon of more salt or less. On that note, take risks and enjoy! :”) Prep Time: 2hrs Ingredients 1 cup of granulated sugar (or regular sugar) 8 tablespoons unsalted butter (or salted based on your preference. I used salted once.) 2 large eggs 3 ripe bananas (1 cup of mashed bananas) 1 tablespoon milk 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 2 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon salt 1/3 cup buttermilk 1/2 cup of chopped pecans (optional) Semi-sweet chocolate chips (as many as desired or…
