Las Vegas IS always fabulous!

Been so busy since I came back from Las Vegas I finally had a moment to tell you about my beauty filled and foodie trip. I got to go with my sweetie so that’s always good. It wasn’t as hot this year as it usally is in the 100 degree and more mark. I never get tired of Las Vegas and go a few times a year.

I guest spoke at the International Esthetics Cosmetics and Spa Conference.

My class went well and I love the eager to learn audience of makeup artists,estheticans,plastic surgeons and Boss Babes.IMG_5302

I enjoyed and sat in on some other classes TO LEARN too but my fave part of any beauty conference is always  discovering what is on the show floor! Shopped til I dropped. I discovered a few new brands and tools I will share with you in the next few blog posts too.

Healthier Looking SKIN is still in! And so are all kinds of beauty devices and facial tools for anti-aging but they are sold to beauty professionals in the spa or plastic surgeons and dermatologists offices. Where they need to be. I think sometimes these at home machines and pro devices are best used by the PROFESSIONAL. Putting the wrong device in the consumers hands can harm you especially if you don’t know what you are doing.

ūüíĄ Makeup is sparkling with all things glam and glitter.

Lash and hair extensions reign supreme.

I enjoyed my usual foodie spots for food away from the strip where the locals like to go. And at the top of that food list is the infamous In & Out Burger and animal fries too!

I stayed on an extra day to RELAX¬† and to join Las Vegas¬†Now’s¬† host Courtney Perna again. So happy to join her again as she’s always fun to work with and quite a show host… loaded with personality! This time my segment was¬† Asian Beauty Secrets Revealed. Having just been to Korea and China I had a few unique things to share with their TV viewers. The best part of the segment was rolling an Asian Skin Smoothing and Relaxing face roller with her for fun on Boomerang.IMG_5450

This cool little tool is still on a roll in China and now the USA. Using it is so cool and refreshing and the beauty benefits surely beats a face lift… any day!

Asian Royalty used it for centuries now it has made it to main stream from China. Great for those of you who love all things anti-aging. Revs up circulation and they do so much.

Have you ever seen unusual fruit at an Asian market and wondered what they are?

Dragon fruit and Durian are delightful to eat or add in a smoothie for younger looking skin and overall good health. Don’t be afraid to explore what’s not familiar to you and taste what you never tried before.

Asian women I interviewed on the streets of Hong Kong also shared with me that infamous Pearl Powder. Sold by the box in little vials you almost think you are buying something white powdery and illegal. But it is not. It is a powder when mixed with water makes an amazing skin brightening and tightening face mask. The women use this beauty find that is handed down from generations.

Wishing¬† I were back in the Orient I had a craving for Dim Sum (Chinese Brunch) that is in some places served all day. I adore the owner,staff and food at Orchids Garden. So, authentic and delightful! About 8 MINUTES from the Las Vegas strip. They serve it on hot oven carts. So delicious and you won’t break the bank.DIM SUM IMG_5278

Shopping in Las Vegas is always fun. You can shop on the strip or go out and drive half an hour to an outlet mall called in Prim. They have a Tommy Bahama Outlet my husband so loves. I enjoy the H & M outlet and other discount shops.

By the airport there is also fabulous shopping experience (not just on the strip) and since I am addicted to all things containers and tidying up… The Container Store is also there! I don’t have one in my city so I try and shop one when I travel. After you’re done stop at the center and have a cocktail or go to grab a bite at The Lazy Dog restaurant. The first time I ever had sweet potato tater tots. Everything made from scratch and from the farm! Food …so fresh.

And by the way, if you’re into cannabis. They have licensed recreational dispensaries there now. It is legal.

Next time you travel ‚úąÔłŹ to Las Vegas check out some of these spots. You don’t need a ton of money or gamble to enjoy Las Vegas. I can’t wait to go back in a few months.

I’ve always had a beautiful experience!

Bat Those Lashes…Sexy!

…I can’t wait to paint the town with these!!!SCOTT BARNES LASHES

If you like the look of JLO and the way her skin shimmers and her lashes.!

Scott Barnes should be your go to for his lashes and his product called BODY BLING!

He is handsome,talented and a wonderful celebrity makeup artist.Wish you could meet him.

Get ready for spreading some LOVE and do lots of lash batting and kissing.

This mascara is the bomb!

Cherry Blooms

Unlike me it seems every single girl or woman I meet love WEARING mascara. And many I meet are on the hunt for it!
Constantly on a quest for flirty,fabulous,longer lashed eyes!

The reason I say unlike me is that due to allergies I cannot wear many brand mascaras as well as enjoy fake eyelashes as the glue (no matter what brand) annoys my eyes. So, my go to fave product has always been lipstick!

However, if you are seeking that mascara of all mascaras! I received a package in the mail and had to share with you.

It is called Cherry Blooms…and like a cherry tree blooms from tiny flowers to cherries your lashes will bloom.There used to be a large cherry tree in the backyard of my grandmother’s home and I always admired their beautiful journey and blooms.
So, getting back to the mascara there is this saucy Aussie woman who loves to invent things and she came out with this mascara.
They call them lash extensions that you BRUSH ON. no fuss,no glue, no mess.
The mascara is a two step process which I first thought might be a long task especially on the go.
First you apply the gel from a wand, then you apply the black fibers (which are the lash magic to me) and then a coat of the gel to set.

On clean eyelashes with (no other mascara necessary) I couldn’t wait to try and see what volume of lashes I would see as my eyelashes have never been long looking nor defined. My husband’s lashes are what women would envy and he doesn’t even use an eyelash curler not fair.I also waited a few hours to see if my eyes would be allergic or puff up or itch after a coat of the mascara set.
Well, everything went well no swell,no itch no whining on my part.

Longer lashes in less than 60 seconds! My lashes looked AMAZING! I never had such full and beautiful lashes. Best of all they did not crunch. Do you know what I mean by that? You know the feel when you put on several coats of mascara and the layers feel like they are mini tree branches that will snap off? This mascara does not do that.

Great for ladies with allergies,who wear contacts and who want to look good without a TON of time and layered application. It is a really fast process.

The benefits of this product I read online are:

All non-toxic ingredients.Stimulates lash growth,as a good quality beeswax helps cells regenerate faster.Anti-bacterial properties so it doesn’t breed bacteria and has a longer shelf life. Moisturizes those lashes.Lasts longer then other pop up copy cat brands!
LASH LOVERS UNITE!
If you want to look like yourself only better and like the look of fuller,longer or false lashes…you NEED this! It is the bomb!

OPI nail lacquer, shiny luscious lips,purple & lime green hair and lashes to die for~

Just came back from  guest speaking at the Premiere Beauty show in sunshine filled Orlando. I found so much beauty and beautiful women took over the Convention Center. Some stylists created  hair with a futuristic and a tribal twist and some made it hot. All the hot educators in hair, skin and makeup were there.

COLOR was everywhere…from fun nail lacquer shades, bold lipstick & eye shadows ¬†to wild hair color and gorgeous ¬†lashes.

My makeup class went well and I enjoyed the faces of the PRO’s as well as¬†students sitting at the edge of their seats to learn was most welcoming. I attended some classes and loved makeup artist Dynessa Myricks class on eyes.¬†

Oh and if you have sensitive skin…I found the most amazing educational class and company that sells all things lashes. What they are famous for is a hypo-allergenic eyelash adhesive they are La Shae FINALLY a no burn,no irritation,easy to remove eyelash adhesive. The devotees I spoke with swear by it. I never had any sensitivities and then one day they arrived. I am so happy to find this adhesive. Ask for it at your fav’ salon or spa.

No time to go to Disney but I found the closest thing…the Minnie Mouse inspired collection at the OPI nail lacquer booth. I found girls dressed with mouse ears and adorable and sexy shades of nail colors. I bought dozens.¬†

Next stop Viva Las Vegas at the International Beauty Show and International, Esthetics, Cosmetics and Spa conference. We will take you behind the scenes of our beauty booth, my makeup classes,famous spas and the parties & fun of Las Vegas.
