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.

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

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.

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. ❤💕❤

Nymeria Avidor just got a beautiful new dog collar from PetTastic to try! Doesn’t it look great on her! I love the vibrant colors on this dog collar and the high quality of the clasp and fabric. PetTastic has a huge variety of styles and colors for your pet. Their website is awesome, easy to navigate and has a large selection. PetTastic ships quick too! Nymeria gets so excited when a package comes in the mail, seriously, she always thinks it is for her and sometimes it is.


It has a special place to put her dog tag which is fantastic! I like that it is separate from the leash D ring, this way the tag will stay put! We are loving it!
