Brand Focus: Antipodes

Hey guys & gals! I hope you have had a great week so far! Today I wanted to share with you a brand focus video on a lesser-known brand called Antipodes. Originating from New Zealand, this eco-friendly company uses natural and organic products to formulate what I’ve found to be really nice skincare that helps the skin. And smells delicious.

Fellow Houstonians: I’d love to meet you! Come to my meet-and-greet Friday, April 18th (that’s Good Friday so you might be off work!) between 2pm and 6pm at Walmart in the Health & Beauty section located at 111 Yale St, Houston, TX 77007. There will be prizes and goodie bags as well as pampering refreshments and photo opportunities for you and your friends. I hope you can make it! When Texans do meet-and-greets, we go big or we go home. Am I right? Hope to see you there!

Empties #1 – Products I’ve Used Up!


This is my first time ever doing an “Empties” video – also known as a video about the products I’ve used up and what I thought about them. I laughingly call these videos “What’s In My Trash?” videos because really…that’s what it is. If you were wondering, yes, I did keep a Neiman Marcus shopping bag next to the trash can in my bathroom to toss my empty products into. Yes, my husband was bewildered. It’s okay if you are too.

Let’s get on with the video! (Also, if you want to see my videos before anyone else, make sure you’re subscribed! New videos out usually every Monday, Wednesday, Friday!)Please Click To View The Full Post →

What’s In My Céline?


Happy Monday guys and gals! I hope you are having a great start to your week. Mine definitely looks busy, but luckily I’ve got some great content lined up for you this week, so be sure to check back every day!

Today I’m sharing with you my new baby: my Céline Luggage tote in the “Micro” size and black drummed leather. The drummed leather comes with silver hardware and the smooth leather comes with gold hardware, which I do feel looks better on black, but smooth leather scratches easily and loses its shape faster than drummed leather. (A comparison between the drummed and smooth leather can be made with the Chanel caviar vs lambskin leathers, if you’re familiar with Chanel). Although the bag is pricey, it’s by far the most well-made bag I’ve ever owned (yes, even compared to my Chanel). Nothing compares to the feeling of sturdiness and craftsmanship, in my opinion. Céline definitely has a new fan for life.

If you’d like to watch the video about my thoughts on the bag and the contents of my bag (which have actually changed quite a bit since my last video, so it won’t be as boring, I promise), or to see a photo of all the contents laid out neatly, then just click on!

So click on over to my luvocracy collection to find all the goodies! Hope you enjoy the video – making it a little snazzier every time! And I’m back to the old background again, yay!

Leave a comment with your favorite thing this month (doesn’t have to be beauty) – let’s start a conversation! I love chatting with you all! xx

My Husband Does My Makeup


As a blogger, one becomes quite used to anticipating milestones. One I’ve been looking forward to since forever has been hitting 10,000 subscribers on my YouTube channel. My husband promised me about 6 months ago, that when I hit 10k on YouTube, he would do the video I’ve been dying to film for a very long time: the “Husband/Boyfriend Does My Makeup” tag video. Believe it or not, I hit that milestone sometime last week. Thank you so much. Seriously, I cannot believe that ten thousand of you subscribe to my videos. Crazy. Anyway, this is what we filmed.
