Exciting News and a Chance to Win a Trip for Two to NYC!

I am so excited to announce that I was selected to be a Spokesperson for Almay! Even more exciting is that the Almay Makeup Moments with Mom campaign is featuring the gorgeous Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson! I love these beautiful, fun, and inspiring women!

almay Now my mother has actually never worn makeup. Not even special occasions. Not only that but through most of her life she hasn’t even used skincare. More often than not you can’t even find a body lotion in her house. Frustrating when you are visiting and have something as simple as dry hands and need some relief! I really have no idea where my love/obsession with makeup and skincare came from. It was just part of my DNA. Now as a mother I can see my daughter being influenced by my passion for makeup. At 5 years old she has already found a young girl on YouTube who’s makeup tutorials she loves to watch. She even wants to do her OWN videos and heck even I don’t do videos! I’m not sure whether to be excited or terrified about this blossoming beauty aficionado. Right now I am looking forward to all the makeup secrets I can share with my daughter as she grows up and hopefully steer her clear of some of the mistakes I made along the way. Almay happens to be such a wonderful line for young girls since it is made for sensitive skin. Just maybe not 5 year old girls…

    Oh this is so adorable! I wish my daughter was a little more girly. She’ll be 14 in June and couldn’t care less about makeup. I myself started to wear makeup late, around 19/20 but was always into it. *sigh*

      Thank you Marcia! xo Do you and your sister ever wonder where it came from? I really think it has just always been part of me. I started wearing full on makeup in public school! Maybe it was a self esteem thing? But I don’t think so. I think it was kore a love of colour and the art.
