Makeup Monday’s Vol 22. – 10 steps to a fabulous you!

Hello Ladies!!

Today I will giving you all a few pointers that everyone, and I mean Everyone should do! Consider this your guide to feeling even more fabulous!

1 – Drink 6-8 glasses of water a day

2 – I understand that we all love our fried fatty foods, but fresh fruits and vegetables will surely make you feel a lot better in the long run. Would you rather feel good for roughly fifteen minutes (while your eating fried fatty foods) or for the whole day (while and after eating a healthier choice)?

3 – Wake up a little bit earlier to workout at least 30 minutes 4 times a week.

4 – Use fabric softener on facecloth for gentle cleaning care.

5 – Try to moisturize the skin under your eyes more often.

6 – I know you’ve heard it many times before, WEAR SUNSCREEN!! well, I’ll say it again, ALWAYS WEAR SUNSCREEN! As much as we all love the bronzed look, do you really want to damage your skin?  If you really want a summer glow type of look, there are always other alternatives,such as, bronzers and spray tan!

7 – Try to get at least 7 hours of sleep every night

8 – Something that many people don’t know is, you should always moisturize your skin before airplane travel, which will prevent in-flight dryness to your skin.

9 – I’m sure this will be the best number yet, Try to devote at least one day a week to a total beauty day. Which should consist of facial sauna and facial mask, hair conditioning , and our favorites…. Manicure & Pedicure!

10 – Laugh, giggle and smile! Laughter helps you stay emotionally healthy and it makes you feel good!

After reading my pointers, your ONE step CLOSER to feeling even more FABULOUS!

Why we heart Yoga so much!


I remember the first time I tried yoga! Such an amazing feeling! Lying on the floor with my eyes closed, hearing my heart pulsate and listening to myself breath. Felling harmony between my body and soul. I felt like I was sinking in the ground!!

Yoga is a wellness practiced for centuries. It has a lot of health benefits. Yoga reinforces the mental aspect of our being while sculpting our bodies. Try the power yoga!! And you’ll know what mean J

Not only does yoga help you ease tensions and sleep better, it energizes your muscles softens joint and stimulates your inner organs. It helps the oxygen of your entire body accelerate, boots energy and eliminates toxins.

Try this every morning! The Salutation of the Sun! This is the fist thing I learned J Enjoy!!

Stand straight with your palms together near your chest, raise your arms as high as you can over your head and bring them down. Inhale deeply.

Keeping your legs straight, bend forward (at your waist) and place your hands on the floor, next to your feet. Your head should now be near your knees. Exhale.

Always keeping your hands on the floor move your left leg behind you making sure your foot and your knee touch the floor.

Then move your other foot behind you, always making sure your foot is touching the floor. Knees straight, arms straight and hands on the floor. Your spine should be straight now. Inhale.

Bend your elbows bringing your chest, knees and toes to the ground (like your about to do a push up) Exhale.

Now lift your head, your upper body and straighten your arms, leaving your lower body, knees and foot still touching the floor. Curve your back. Inhale.

Go back down, and get into a triangular position, having your hand and feet on the ground, but this time your knees and but are in the air. Move your left leg forward.

Bring your right leg forward this time and straighten you legs to standing keeping your hands on the floor and your head near your knees.

Slowly return to standing position. Exhale.

Makeup Monday’s Vol. 7 – Do your skin and you some good, relax in a bath!


I’ve always loved taking baths. When I was young I used to play for hours in the tub till the water got cold and my hands got all wrinkly but that didn’t stop me!! I would empty the bath tub and fill it up again with worm water! It was the best place to play with my toys and let my imagination run.

Now I love taking baths to relax, soothe aches and pains and to clear my mind. Sometime I use Essential oils! Have you tried it?? Depending on what kind of essential oil you use, it can distress, energize, slim or purify you. The best thing about essential oils is that they penetrate in your pores.

The best way to take a bath is to make sure the water is not too hot; the maximum temperature should be 97 degree F. Water that is too hot can seriously damage your skin, your circulation, the elasticity and is very dangerous for the veins in your legs.  Taking a bath lowers your body’s temperature so it is best to take one before going to bed.  Bath time is also a perfect timing for body/face exfoliation and masks, since the steam open ups the pores. Always finish your bath with a cool shower and limit your bath time to a maximum of 20 minute.

For a super relaxing ambiance try this!!!

  • Light up scented candles, grab a good book and listen to some soft music.
  • If your bath tub is uncomfortable you can always buy those inflammable pillows!!!
  • Lift your legs, relax your knees, and clear your thoughts.

Enjoy bath time everyone!!!
