One of my bucket list items is to attend the annual Kentucky Derby, gaudy hat and all. But, it’s not happening this year, so a homemade mint julep and a Samsung TV will have to suffice. Continue reading “Lavish Libations: A Mint Julep”
So I dipped into my inner-Rhoda for this outfit combo. If you have missed this series, you can catch up here, here, here and here. Continue reading “Cabi Outfit #4”
I am a firm believer in exfoliating daily. Not only does it take off the dead layer of skin, but also keeps pores clear and prevents ingrown hairs. It improves blood circulation and gives you a healthy glow. It also aids in helping products to efficiently penetrate skin and do their job properly. Continue reading “Favorite Exfoliants”
Okay, I have some GREAT, new things that I just HAD to share with ya’ll! Continue reading “What I’m Loving Lately”
Buenos Dias! I know it is still April, but May 5 is upon us before we know it. I thought it would be fun to do a Mexican fiesta theme. I toyed with doing a Kentucky Derby-themed bar cart. Consequently, it also on May 5 this year.
But, I just love the fun colors a fiesta entails. In fact, for Hayley’s graduation last May, we put on a fiesta of all fiestas. You can check it out here.
The ice bucket was a DIY project that you can check out here.Rourke keeps complaining about the fact that there is no liquor on our bar cart. So, I am gradually building a small arsenal. Of course, I had to include tequila for margaritas.My standard bar books and one of my favorite candles.Got to have flowers and margarita glasses, of course!! For an easy, delicious salsa to go with your ‘ritas, click here.
Hasta luego, amigos!
Who wants to go through surgery and the recovery to look a little bit younger? I definitely don’t!
Through a co-worker and with the help from Hayley, I have discovered the next best thing!
I also used this contour and blender sponge duo.
Start by applying foundation and concealer. Wet the larger blending sponge and blend in products.
Next, using the darker end of the WonderStick….
Draw lines..underneath cheekbones on both sides.Then draw…on forehead…
And for a “nose job”….draw down both sides of nose bone.Then for a “lip enhancement”…underneath lip.
Next, draw a line across jawbone.Now, using the lighter end of the stick, draw a line on chin, across forehead, down the center of nose, and down both sides of mouth from nose to lip.
Wet and squeeze excess water out of smaller blending sponge. Blend in all the lines, using small strokes.Now using the highlight cream with a small brush….Apply a small amount to top of cheekbones and middle of forehead. (Oops! I missed my forehead a bit, but end up blending it in when applying illuminator.)Now, apply powder, blush, eyeshadow, mascara, brow product and lip product.
I was a little intimidated by these products at first, but by playing around with them with the help of Hayley, there was nothing to it. I recommend you start out by using a little bit at a time until you achieve the look you are aiming for.
