Javita & National Coffee Day

Happy National Coffee day everyone!!! As its this special day for caffeine lovers in the USA I thought I'd blog to you all about my new favorite caffeinated treat... So with my call times for work often starting at disgusting o'clock it's a must have,  especially if it's a filming day where a typical shoot can last over 15 hours.   Having  coffee will wake me up but too much gives me shakey hands which is no Bueno when trying to do makeup... Recently I was introduced to Javita coffee by my friend Joyce Santiago and hellllooooo early mornings I'm ready for you.  The coffee not only gives me the right jolt of energy but it has a natural of garcina cambogia which is a natural fat burner.  Now I was hesitant at first as I'm a coffee snob ( I'm that person who buys beans at a specialty shop and grinds her own). But for an instant coffee, Javita is delicious and I always carry a packet in my makeup kit to go now.  Find out more on

illuMask

Hey Blog readers sorry its been a long time since my last post but I have a very good reason.. I got engaged!  But now I'm back on the beauty blogging vibe focusing on my new top skin savior in preparation for the wedding!

 I've recently been sent a couple of  illuMask's.  One for anti- acne and the other for anti-aging. They are light therapy masks you can easily do at home.. which is awesome. I used to pay a lotta- wonga to have light therapy treatments added on to my professional facials so the fact I can do this at home and for not a lot of cash is music to my ears. In a nutshell red and infrared light go deep into skin tissue and stimulate the enzymes that boost skin cells.  All I know is that I've been doing my best Jason from Halloween impression for 15 minutes a pop once a week along with my regular skin care routine and my complexion has never looked better.  

Each mask comes with an attached wand that gives you 30 treatments. It's so relaxing too to just  shut off and take that time to just breathe and be still while the mask does all the work.

Dermalogica

Traveling on planes, early call times and long working hours is an occupational hazard for me but  It's my complexion that really takes the beating.  Dark circles, blemishes and dry patches seem to appear like badges of honor the harder I work.   So when a facial treatment was offered to me from the Dermalogica Spa in Soho last week I couldn't run there fast enough.   Www.dermalogica.com

I received an hour of pure bliss in their space age pod like room.  Color therapy lights and chilled out music tickled my senses while my therapist steamed, extracted, massaged and masked my skin into a gleaming glow. 

The result was my flaky faces texture was transformed to appear silky smooth and clear.  But  the best part yet was when this box of awesome delights arrived at my door to maintain my now flawless face.

Dermalogicas Daily Microfoliant & Daily Resurfacer are total hero products to help fight fatigued skin.    

And their Multivitamin Power Recovery Masque and skin hydrating booster are awesome to maintain hydration.  

 

 

If your skin  is looking a little laclusture Id recommend making an appointment to see one of their therapists.,  you can thank me later xoxo

A good chunk of what I do is make people look polished, pretty or "camera ready".  So, when given the chance to head to the Nevada desert and create beautiful imagery with a kick ass team including fashion stylist Ise White & the incredible photographer Reka Nyari & sponsored by Robot Hearts- Further Future.. I jumped on the plane!   Here's a sneak peak shot of  awesome things to come-
