I am all about my skin and keeping it tight so I was thrilled to try out the Neutrogena Rapid Repair product line, which promises to deliver #RapidResults! I would like to call out that I do not necessarily have wrinkles so the products were used for improving skin appearance and minimizing fine lines. I was gifted the full line, however I used the eye cream and night time moisturizer the most.
Rapid Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream: This lightweight eye cream contains Retinol SA and is clinically proven to fade the look of crows feet, brighten and even under eye area, reduce the look of dark circles and smooth fine lines. I could feel the product working the moment I put it on and after a few days I noticed that the skin under my eyes was brighter and looked tighter.
Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Moisturizer: This moisturizer has the highest concentration of Retinol SA and proven to fade the look of deep wrinkles, brighten skin tone and smooth fine lines. The moisturize causes skin flaking or exfoliation which annoyed me a bit because I hate when my skin peels but I knew that it was going to happen as a sign the product is working. After a week of use I did feel that my skins overall appearance looked a lot better. My skin is brighter and more even.
I would definitely recommend this line if you are looking for affordable anti-aging products!

If I told you how long it has been since I got a new pair of glasses you might be scared to know what the heck I have been wearing. Thankfully, I was asked by Firmoo.com to do a product/service review. Woo-hoo! I selected these rectangular frame eyeglasses, which come in both black and tortoise.
- Really affordable prices
- Quick turnaround time
- Glasses are nice quality
- The virtual try-on is very helpful
- Comes with a hard case, cleaning cloth and an additional fabric carrying case
- Would have liked more fashion-forward options
- The lenses I chose were supposed to help with the way that my eyes appear smaller due to my prescription but I did not notice a difference.
If you are in the market for a new pair of specs I definitely recommend checking Firmoo out. They have a First Pair Free Program for new customers where all you have to pay for is the lens and shipping costs. They also promise a full refund if you are not satisfied with the product. There is no excuse for rocking played out glasses anymore, so get to shopping! ;-)
Do you wear glasses?
I am finally back with my current beauty favorites! I don’t normally wear much makeup in the summer, but when I do I have really been loving these products, especially the lippies! Here are my thoughts on each.
One of my fav beauty vloggers Amanda Ensing influenced this purchase and I loveee it. The staying power is insane and I love the beautiful shimmery bronze color. The product is very buildable and it’s exactly what I needed for when I want to glam up my natural/brown makeup look.
NYX Pin-Up Tease Mascara, $5.99
I have super long and unruly lashes especially the ones at the outer corners of my eyelids and the wand on this mascara does exactly as it promises. It’s designed to separate and curl your lashes. The brush size is smaller than I am used to but it works so good. My only complaint is that it is hard to fully take off without the use of makeup remover.
Milani Lipstick- Nude Creme, $5.99
This shade is like my lips but BETTER! The color is a nude/pink shade that delivers true instant coverage with just one swipe and moisturizes with vitamins A & C. Its the perfect shade for me to wear on the daily and I feel like a grown up when I rock it.
This is probably the best $4 bucks I have spent on a beauty product. I can’t believe such an awesome lippie exists at such a great price. This lipstick is very pigmented, super creamy and has great staying power without bleeding. If you want a beautiful bright pink shade then I highly recommend this one!
Murad Oil-Control Mattifier, $39.50
I received a sample size of this product from my girl Kimberlee and I have been using it as a primer under my foundation for oil control and so far so good! It blends nicely even though it feels a bit thick and heavy and definitely keeps me shine free for hours.
This is another goodie from Kim and it just might be my favorite! It’s a matte bronzer that’s so perfect for contouring and to make it even better it smells like chocolate! It puts me in a good mood every time I use it. The medium/deep color shade is beautiful and perfect for my medium skin tone.

My first official lookbook for MyTee B.A.D. Clothing is here and I am excited to share it with you all! The ‘Live Free Stay Young‘ lookbook is all about enjoying life, being fearless, being present and living in the moment. It’s so easy to get caught up in negativity and the everyday hustle, but we have to remember that life is good and it’s up to us to make the best of it.
I can’t tell you how many people and more specifically elderly people have commented on my “Live Free Stay Young” tee. They told me that I was spot on. That living life freely, meaning doing and being true to your authentic self is the best way to lead a happy and fulfilling life. So follow your dreams and do what makes you happy. It’s the secret to staying young. ;-)
How do you live free?

So, who are you, really? I’m not talking about the persona who has been created via social media. I want to know who you are when the world isn’t watching. I am talking about the authentic you who was there before the experiences of life (and Instagram) started shifting things for you. It is our personal responsibility to find that person and open her up to the world so that she can be reconnected with who you present to the world everyday. That is when the magic happens and lasting success starts making its way into your life.
Here are my tips for living authentically:
Skip the social media feeds every once in a while. It will allow you to focus on yourself and not what everybody else is doing.
2. Alone Time.
Spend some quality time getting to know who you are at this time of your life. Are you happy?
3. Do More Happy.
Make an effort to do more things that genuinely make you feel good. Who cares if its not what the cool kids are doing. Do it anyway.
4. Be Fearless.
I truly believe life begins at the end of our comfort zone. If you find yourself in a rut its time to do something fearless. Book a trip and just GO.

I am currently in the process of giving my office space a makeover and I FINALLY got a functioning laptop (thanks babe!). So I will have some new posts for you starting this week!
Hope you have all been doing amaze!
