I am an actress, animal lover, foodie and love all things beauty! Fitness and clean eating are a huge part of my daily life but I also believe everything in moderation.
When I was a little girl, I used to love to watch my mom put on Makeup. She and I would spend hours going through the beauty section of the local drug store, testing and trying out as many products as we could. She would always buy me at least one thing, even if we couldn’t afford it. (and most of the time we couldn’t) She never left the house without make up on and a pair of 5 inch stilettos. She was always into fashion and playing dress up in her closet was a constant. I always thought she was so glamorous and put together. I think every woman knows that no matter how you’re feeling on the inside, a little lipstick, a curling iron and a great pair of shoes can turn that right around!
I came out to LA initially as a model with Elite and I would start to pick up tips from every makeup artist and stylist I worked with. This grew into a horrible beauty product addiction!! I am a self proclaimed “product whore” and I never leave a movie or TV set without a new list of products and tips from the artists I work with. I also can never step into a beauty supply store and leave in under an hour! (Just ask my fiancé who wants to kill me every time I say “I just need to run in and return one quick thing” and leave with 5!)
A couple of years ago I met a woman who had started a line of all natural, organic products. She was a breast cancer survivor and learned that Parabens are a huge contributor to breast cancer specifically. I started learning about all the ingredients that go into our products and wanted to aim towards cleaner, more natural, organic lines. I do believe that you need to pick your poison and can’t always go the all natural route but I do try to as often as I can. I wanted to start a blog so I can share all of my findings with you, what I Iove and what works for me and hopefully save you the countless hours and money that I have spent “trying” out every new thing on the market.
As for health and fitness, there isn’t a workout or fad I haven’t tried! I do get bored super easily so am constantly changing it up and trying new things. (both with my diet and exercise) I do believe a good workout can set the tone for your entire day so I do my best to incorporate it as often as I can. I also love to cook and have seen such a difference in the way I feel when I eat cleaner. I am constantly discovering new amazing recipes so eating right never gets boring.
It just happens to be the names of 2 of the most beautiful faces out there...
