Facial 101 with Divante Medspa + esthetician approved acne products


Last Self-care Sunday was a good one.  Not only was it our date night, I also got my seasonal facial with Divante Med Spa in Studio City.  I just could't pass up the opportunity to get a little pampered but I was more than blown away at the knowledge and service by their dedicated staff.  I was given some serious tips on acne prone skin so If you're like me and you suffer from blemishes, you won't want to miss this Facial 101 below.  But first, lets take a look at my new skin without any foundation or facial cover up.

A Vintage wedding // Photo journal

A Vintage wedding // Photo journal


I haven't done one of these photo journals since 2015!  When I got asked by my Uncle if I could model this Alfred Angelo vintage dress, I couldn't say no.  Adorned with Chantilly lace, balloon sleeves and a train that would make a peacock envious, it encompassed all that is vintage.  We decided shooting it in a wooded area would show great contrast while also adding a dreamy nostalgia.  What do you think?

7 Mom-approved ways to limit illness this season

7 Mom-approved ways to limit illness this season


This post has been sponsored by GOJO Industries, the makers of PURELL® hand sanitizer. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Target has a $1 off coupon and a 20% off coupons for you to save on your bottle of PURELL® 80z and larger!

The MOMthly column: 9 goals this year


Mom Jeans & Mimosas

I can get behind optimism, goal setting and resolution making.  I mean, what a great way to over shadow the lingering depression of Christmas ending?  As the holidays pass and we come back to BEING our true selves, we are able to articulate our own boundaries, dreams and authentic goals. We experience a heightened sense of possibility.  For myself, a fresh new start is exactly what I need.  Here, in no particular order, are my goals because resolutions are weird.
