Dedicated my last day in Vegas to the spa and started with trying out a pedi at @GarraLasVegas This spot was a lot more fun & low-key than I expected & the fish were as good at their job as they are said to be. The customer service was worth mentioning; The girls who work the spa inject their fun & youthfulness into the business as they prep and inform you about everything you need & want to know. Not only are they kind, but incredibly informed about their job.

Blush and Eyeshadow Palette by @NARSissist
These pallets are one of my absolute favorite purchases of all time. I’m not great with makeup, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to use it. The palettes gave me a bit of variety to work with while I was learning, providing most of the tones I would ever need.
24K Gold, Gel Eye Masks by @UltaBeauty
I like to put my eye patches on and literally continue living my life. They take about 15-20 minutes to dry completely, so you can do the dishes, vacuum or catch up on whatever you’re binging at the moment. The weird part about the eye patches is that I feel like I’m neglecting the rest of my face. I love to use my onyx roller to spread the leftover oils and end with a mini face massage.
The “Try-Me: Face Primer Mini Set” by @Smashbox
While I was in Costa Rica with my homegirls, I sweated my entire face off while some of the other girls looks like they weren’t phased at all by the 11 zip lines we had just ridden through the jungle. “How do you keep you face like that?” we all started to ask, as we had gotten comfortable enough to risk our lives, so spring make up tips seemed like nothing at this point. “Setting spray,” she replied with a soft shrug 🤷🏽 and that’s where I started my search.
Rose Quartz & Amethyst Stone Pairing via @NuzingaArts
I was told to pair my rose quartz with an amethyst stone because the amethyst provides protection from negative energy. This purple stone helps protect you from the ulterior motives that might come along with the rose quartz. While you want to attract love with the rose quartz, “you don’t just want anyone’s love,” I was reminded. Pairing these stones helps keep the positive & negative energies balance. You’ll want to pair your rose quartz stone with a stone meant for protection.
Marker Lipgloss by @Moshnio x @Sephora
I came up on the cutest lipgloss set at Sephora. The Moschino collaboration features maker shaped, clear glass lipgloss tubes filled to the brim in a high pigment lipgloss. I find that lip gloss sets are the best way to push your boundaries and try new things. The set cost $34.99, but I use my homegirl’s email for 15% off during VIP days — I’ll be shopping her account so that we can make it up to 20% off! While I am always admittedly skeptical about colored lipsticks, I like to have the opportunity to play with them.
Overnight Face Duo by @Kiehl’s
This is my favorite overnight pair; after a long week or a drying mask, the Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment w/ Avocado helps with the circles under my eyes and the Midnight Recovery Concentrate restores the moisture I’ve lost from makeup and makeup remover. It also helps after drying masks or peels.
My Individual Lash Extensions by @TouchedbyRocsay
Got my first set of lash extensions done by @TouchedByRocsay it was the best decision I could have made. I didn’t want to wear make up in the jungle/beach/heat, but I still wanted to be pretty! As I had correctly guessed, we spent most of our time taking pictures & I needed to make sure I loved them. I used a bit of cover up, but I really could have left all my make up at home!
Curly Hair Routine w/ Mousse
This hair recipe is perfect if you’re low on products. All you need after your wash routine is mousse! When i’m a rush or (on vacation and decided to pack light), this is how I set prep my hair for the day. It’s also great for colder days when you don’t want to go heavy on the gel and want you hair to be drier (don’t catch a cold!).
Hair Wash Routine (VIDEO)
What’s the secret to defined, bouncy, natural curls? It starts with how you wash your hair. In order for curls to be defined, they need to be detangled. To achieve that perfect bounce, your curls need moisture. This wash routine video will help explain my personal routine and maybe answer some of your questions.
