New York Fashion Week is always such a crazy busy time making it difficult to keep up with writing about all of it as it unfolds! When you attend so many shows you are bombarded with images and sounds and a super fast-paced feeling inside. It is the best feeling ever! I find it to be my high, a really safe and very cool one to attain! It is so exhilarating, I just love it!

Therefore I am not going to delude myself by believing I can cover it all – nor even come close to that. While I am viewing collections I really want to take it in and not worry about getting the perfect shot. What I do is video the finale of each show to share. You can find my videos all over social media so you don’t have to miss a thing. (check them out here and click subscribe while you are there! https://www.youtube.com/robinavidor)

Think Naturally: Why You Should Pay Attention to Skincare Ingredients

Think Naturally: Why You Should Pay Attention to Skincare Ingredients

Taking care of your skin is about your health as well as your appearance. Nowadays, we scrutinize labels on food packages, avoiding trans fats, corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, GMOs, and gluten— so why aren’t we doing the same when it comes to our skin? If you’re not already reading the tiny font on the back of your skincare products, then here are some compelling reasons to start:

Your body absorbs what goes on your skin
Ask yourself: do I want this in my body? Your skin is your first line of defense against illnesses and toxins, but it can only do so much when you’re applying toxins to the most delicate areas of your skin twice a day. Skincare products tend to be far less regulated than food, so it’s your job to investigate what exactly is in that little bottle. You’ll be better off with products that use natural, tested ingredients and are transparent about what those ingredients can do.

Some brands will mislead you
Many skincare products try to lure in buyers with psychological attractions such as fragrance, packaging, and brand strength, while downplaying the ingredients. Sometimes a company will even promote a certain natural ingredient, when in reality, their products don’t contain enough of the ingredient to actually be effective.

Dermatologist-tested isn’t the same as dermatologist-endorsed
A product always feels a little safer when it says “dermatologist-tested,” but as we’ve already pointed out, labels can be tricky. Just because a dermatologist has tested a skincare product doesn’t necessarily mean they would recommend it to you. Always look for dermatologist-endorsed products!

Care for your skin like you would the rest of your body— take the time to read the label closely for natural, effective ingredients that have been thoroughly tested and dermatologist recommended!

I hope you enjoyed this guest post from:

Chuda Brand – Fit For A Princess!

I have been using Chuda Sheer Hydrating Lotion with Broad Spectrum SPF30 for about one month now. It has been a pleasure! In addition to protecting my skin from the harmful rays of the sun and environment, it is perfectly hydrating and leaves my skin feeling soft and comfortable. If you have ever used a sunscreen that feels like you are wearing a sticky mask, you understand how important this is! It is so important to protect our skin and the fact that this product is doing double duty is a wonderful bonus! I feel really happy with the positive results I have benefited from by using Chuda. I am one happy fan of theirs now. 🙂
The fact that it has a pump dispenser is a real plus for me. One pump-ful covers my face and neck. I add another pump for my décolleté, or upper chest area, where skin is also very sensitive and vulnerable to the sun’s rays.

It sinks in to your skin quite quickly and leaves it feeling soft and velvety. I love that feeling!

Learn About the Brand From the Brand…

THE STORY OF CHUDA BEGAN CENTURIES AGO, WHEN PRINCESS MEDEA OF COLCHIS LEARNED OF THE REMARKABLE MEDICINAL BENEFITS OF FLOWERS AND HERBS AND ADMINISTERED THEM TO THOSE FALLING ILL.

INSPIRED BY THE CREATIONS OF MEDEA, THE TURMANIDZE FAMILY OF GEORGIA CONTINUED THE PRACTICE OF NATURAL HEALING AND CREATED THEIR OWN INDIGENOUS REMEDIES, INCLUDING A POWERFUL MEDICINAL COMPOUND THAT RAPIDLY HEALED WOUNDED SKIN.

THE COMPOUND’S INGREDIENTS WERE HARVESTED FROM THE PEAKS OF THE PICTURESQUE GEORGIAN MOUNTAINS. THEIR POTENCY WAS ENHANCED BY THE MINERAL-RICH WATERS THAT RAN THROUGH THE ROCKY CAVERNS. THE COMPOUND’S EXACT METHOD OF FORMULATION BECAME A GUARDED FAMILY SECRET—AND REMAINS SO TODAY.

THE EXTRAORDINARY HEALING POWER OF THE COMPOUND SPREAD. GEORGIAN ROYALS CALLED ON THE TURMANIDZE FAMILY TO CURE THEIR AILMENTS. IN THE MID-1800’S, ITALIAN HERO GIUSEPPE GARIBALDI TURNED TO THE FAMILY TO SAVE HIS WOUNDED LEG. HE CALLED THE TREATMENT “MIRACULOUS.”

OVER THE CENTURIES, DEMAND GREW FOR THE MIRACLE COMPOUND, LATER TO BE CALLED THE REMEDEA COMPOUND. DOCTORS IN GEORGIA AND RUSSIA USED IT IN PRACTICE, AS DID MILITARY MEDICS TO HEAL WOUNDED SOLDIERS WITH GREAT SUCCESS. IN TIME, THE KETEVAN TURMANIDZE FAMILY DEVELOPED A PRODUCT LINE FEATURING THE COMPOUND WITH DISTRIBUTION IN GEORGIA AND RUSSIA.

FOUNDATION ~ HOW TO PICK THE PERFECT ONE!

How to pick a perfect liquid foundation for your skin

A Guest Post

Choosing the right foundation of your skin is a time-consuming and daunting task because they are available in several formulas and countless shades. It is essential to know that liquid foundations are one of the trickiest makeup items to use because they will either bring you that flawless, dreamy complexion or they will have the opposite results if you choose it wrong.  If you want to avoid the inappropriate one, you need to know about different kinds of liquid foundations available for your individual skin type. The skin type will vary from one individual to another individual, so the liquid foundation now available for all types of skin. When you decide to choose a one, you can understand your skin type. After that, you can look at the products ideal for your skin type. These are major considerations that aid you in selecting the right product quickly and easily. If you have oily skin, you can opt for a good liquid foundation for oily skin sephora.

Important aspects to check

Choosing a suitable foundation for oily skin is a time-consuming and daunting task.  If you love to wear makeup, you will recognition simply applying blush and concealer will not bring you the desired finish. Using one is essential even though if you opt for a very light or medium coverage foundation.  It is always helpful to try various makeup products offered by various brands before choosing one.  The useful process helps you to find out an ideal foundation according to your individual skin type.  Here are few vital aspects to check:

  • Coverage

You can consider both the tone differences and spots of your skin before choosing any foundation. If you come with lots of freckles and spots, you can opt for a complete coverage. You can utilize light coverage if you own a clean skin.  This kind of foundation brings you an illuminated and excellent finish for the skin.

It is also important to opt for a non-transferable and long-lasting foundation. The smart selection helps you to get better results.

FOUNDATION, MAKEUP, GUEST POST, EYE SHADOW

  • Undertone:

Most of the people fail to consider this aspect while buying liquid foundation. In fact, the final look and finish are completely based on the undertone, so you can consider this aspect carefully. Looking at the veins is a right way to find the undertone. If your veins appear green or olive green, you have a proper underdone. If you have purplish veins, you have an extremely warm understand. Dark blue and blight blue means neutral ones.

  • Type of your skin

Skin type plays the most significant role in buying a liquid foundation. If you come with oily skin, you can look for one designed especially for oily skin. Otherwise, it will break out your skin and also does not give you the desired look. If you want to keep your skin shiny, you can select one based on the skin type. The proper pick ensures that you are having the desired results soon.

I hope you enjoyed this post and I would like to bring you more guest posts in the near future! xoxoxo #rockinrobin

NeoStrata – A Few of My Favorite Products!

I have been using this NeoStrata Ultra Brightening Cleanser for about 1 month now. First of all the creamy, light lemony scent is such a treat! I love the experience of washing my face with it. It leaves my skin feeling clean and moisturized, but never like it has a film on it. I must include that considering my age and look of my skin, #NeoStrata products have done their job! I also love how they are created to all work together. Ingenious!

Trust me as your elder (LOL) that once your neck goes, you look 10 years older! This Triple Firming Neck Cream has helped prevent that and I couldn’t be happier about it! This rich, awesome lightly scented cream is a pleasure to use. It smells so good! It is silky and glides into your skin leaving it looking and feeling moisturized but not greasy. One pump is all it takes, once a day. Check out my picture, I am 58. I believe NeoStrata has kept my skin looking youthful! Thank you for that!

I am so happy NeoStrata came out with a sun screen that compliments their other skin brightening products. Using them together is really working for me. This Skin Brightener with sunscreen has a slight beachy fragrance and sinks into your skin completely. I was out in the blistering sun for hours and I did not burn! It’s yet another fine example of what the chardonnay grape seed can do for us! The extract is in it!!  😉
I received these products free from NeoStrata. The opinions expressed in this review are my own. Powered by @BrandBacker

New Orleans / About NOLA

New Orleans / About NOLA

I’ve just returned from my first summer vacation of 2018. Being a brand ambassador for ShoeDazzle and JustFab brought me and my sole sistas to New Orleans for our annual summit. What an adventure it was! It is always such a huge treat to meet up with friends that you spend virtual time with daily but see in person only once annually. It is so amazing to hug each and everyone of them and spend real time together.

Kelli Saulny of Style and Taste @thestyleandtaste / Cymande Ford of Ugly Betty Boy Crush @uglybettyboycrush and @plusisaplus / Samjah Iman of Style and Energy @samjahiman

At the summit we had 3 inspirational speakers and got some inside peeks into what is up and coming for sale on the websites. This year we got to hear and learn from spectacular women whose stories empower us! You should check them all out!

New Orleans

Aside from all of that fabulousness we get to explore a new city! I stayed at the Bourbon Orleans Hotel. Although it claims to be one of the most haunted hotels in the world, I did not see a ghost. I will admit though that after the hotel’s complimentary ghost tour, I was scared to get up and go to the bathroom in the middle of the night! The location of the hotel was great, being right at the beginning or end of the chaos. It was clean and elegant with a ton of charm. And like a child, I loved the pool!

During this trip I gathered a few tips about New Orleans that you may already know. 1) the FOOD is amazing and there is no shortage of new things to try 2) everyone is drunk on Bourbon Street, all of the time 3) there is SO MUCH more to see than just Bourbon Street! 4) Frenchman Street is the place to be and I wish I knew that sooner 5) the Garden District and Magazine Street is gorgeous 6) I was able to eat breaded and fried fish in many restaurants because they are breaded with corn flour!! Gluten free friendly town yahoo! 7) the swamp we air boated on was totally awesome! So lush and full of nature, I loved it there!

 

Look! There’s okra in my Bloody Mary! I had no idea I liked pickled okra but I do love it now!

I had never heard of shrimp and grits before in my life. OMG it was so delicious.

I was born and bred on an island eating a lot of seafood. But the food at Superior Sea Food really was just that LOL! Some of the best I’ve ever had. Just look at those scallops – they were luscious. I have to admit the oysters were a little bit too large for my taste and the waiter said a lot of people tend to say that. But the grilled ones were amazing.

Pat O’Briens

For a girl with as many food restrictions as myself to find seafood cooked with corn flour and no wheat nor gluten was one of the most amazing things ever LOL. Thank you so much Pat O’Briens for this feast of catfish and oysters.

Marigny Brassiere

Even though I could not eat the seafood there my husband said it was scrumptious. I thoroughly enjoyed the red beans and rice that night!

I could go on forever but rather I will end the food section with this collage! But I must also mention Cafe Dumonde even if I couldn’t eat the beignets 😒 the chicory coffee was delish!

Frenchman Street

I loved it here. So much bluesy jazz and art!

The Swamp

I will finish off with some photos of my solesistas! The whole reason for my trip! Thank you to my husband for always sharing these adventures with me with a big smile on his face!

One Last Thing…

We lost Anthony Bourdain while we were in New Orleans. May he RIP 🙁

I’m crying. I didn’t even realize how much He was a hero to me. He gave me hope. He was The face of recovery. This is Devastating news. May he find Peace ✌. Man, I think a lot of us felt we knew him. You never know, do ya 😢😢😢 Hug your loved ones a little tighter today. ❤💕❤
