Hello, friends! I hope all of you had a great Easter, and are having a great week!

Beauty tutorial
Once again, many thanks to Jessica Alba for her recent informative beauty tutorial on Instagram. Needless to say, on that day, I was able to learn about two beauty products that I already cannot live
without: the Everything Cream Foundation, that I already reviewed last week, and the product I will quickly review today: the Anti-Wrinkle Eye Mask. I purchased this product on Amazon for a very reasonable price. I love not spending a fortune on beauty products.

I have been using this Anti-Wrinkle Eye Mask for about two weeks now, and I already noticed a decrease in puffiness under my eyes. As many of you already know, I suffer from severe allergies all year round. As a result, my eyes are constantly red and puffy. So, finding a product that helps blur out the puffiness means the world to me. This eye mask is travel-friendly, soft on your fingers, and designed to fit perfectly under your eyes, anywhere and anytime. I highly recommend it.


As for Claudio, I am still trying to teach some new tricks. This week, we have been learning the words “stop” and “sit.” Around his nap time, when I ask my furry baby to sit, he happily runs off. Have a great week! XO, Nunzia 

Hello, everyone!

Last week, I was on my Instagram page when I noticed that Jessica Alba was doing a live makeup tutorial before attending a birthday party. Thanks to Jessica, I learned about this amazing product that I already cannot live without: the Everything Cream Foundation.

The Search

Many of you who have been following my blog are well aware that I have been searching for that perfect foundation. I could write a thesis on how difficult it is to find your perfect brand and shade. I hear
you clearly. Finding that perfect foundation can be daunting for your skin and your wallet. Needless to say, after searching for almost two years, that precious and unforgettable moment has finally arrived.

Yes, many of my readers know that I get overly excited if I find a great beauty product for a great price. I am always on the lookout for a product that really works.

How it Feels on your Skin

I know it sounds too good to be true! This mess-free, travel-friendly foundation provides exactly what I need: even coverage and a youthful, refreshing look. It has become a part of my daily makeup routine. 

This soft, comfy, creamy formula comes in 14 flattering shades. The Honest Beauty company did a super job creating a product formulated to deliver coverage that stays on all day long. The creamy texture blends like a dream. 

What really sold me is the flawless look that lasts all day. It goes on smoothly, and you do not look like your are wearing a thick vale or mask over your face.

How to Apply

1. Moisture is the key! Wait 2-3 minutes after applying moisturizer, until it is absorbed well into the skin

2. Use a primer that will help blur the dry fine lines

3. Starting at the center of your cheeks, apply the creamy foundation. Buff well with a brush in circular motions. I use a large brush, like the one Jessica used during her live makeup tutorial

With this product, the circular and buff techniques are very important to achieve that perfect/impeccable finished look. Please don’t hesitate to build it up. Trust me on this one, because I have already tested this repeatedly on my skin, and I am very pleased with the results.

I give this product 5 out of 5 stars.

Hello, friends! As many of you already know, I love to take great care of myself. I often wonder: when did I become this psychotically obsessed with health and beauty

Okay, some of us are naturally blessed with beautiful skin. So, why not take a few steps to keep that beautiful skin glowing as long as possible? After all, it is the largest organ in our body, so let’s keep in mind that it is important to pay attention to all the skin products that we apply.
I have severe food allergies. Therefore, I need to pay extra attention when I read labels to ensure that the products do not have any ingredients that can cause an allergic reaction. Just in the past month, an Ipsy bag I received had a facial cleanser with almonds in it. That can be dangerous for someone like me who suffers from tree nut allergies. We need to always read the labels to identify those not-so-great ingredients that can make us sick.

Keep in mind, even if a facial cream says “organic,” that does not mean that you will not get a reaction. Back in 2017, I was using this organic line. Right before I left for Italy that summer, I ended up having red skin patches under my eyes and cheekbones. My skin was screaming desperately for help. Thankfully, my allergist was able to identify what was causing the reaction and treat it.
Since that reaction, typically, before I shop for a skin product, I like to do research to learn as much as possible about the product. Within the past couple of months, I have been super focused on the ingredients of products that I choose for my beauty routine. 



Best,
Nunzia

Shall I remind you that spring has sprung, and summer time is almost here? Now that the warm months are getting closer, and some of us travel a lot during the summer, it is the perfect time for me to be more casual.

We don’t have to worry about those heavy, long coats hiding our pretty clothing. We can hang our lovely winter jackets in the closet, and say arrivederci/goodbye to them until next year. One of my favorite things about spring is that we can throw on a cute casual dress without much effort and call it a day.

Every spring, I get this urge to clean my closet. I like to remove things that I have not worn in awhile. If you do not wear it, remove it!
If you do clean your closet for spring, please take the time to give all your old clothing items to Goodwill or a charity of your choice. There are so many people who are in need. 

Finally, this week, try to fit some “me” time into your schedule. We get so busy taking care of our families that we get lost, feeling overwhelmed and stressed out. You can prevent that from happening. Also, don’t forget to do your Yoga. It can bring us peace in a stressful world. 🙌

Namaste,

Nunzia

Hello, my friends! It has been a while since my last update. As you know, I have multiple projects that I’m currently working on for Thrive Global, but I have honestly missed blogging. 

On that note, I would like to ask you a question: what would you like to see more of on my blog? Feel free to share your thoughts and ideas. 

Winter is still here. Why? Where is the sun?

In many areas of the country, we are still tackling Old Man Winter. In South Texas, the sun has disappeared, making us feel nostalgic for summer and tired of the clouds. Last year, right around this time, while I was recovering from a knee surgery, I wrote an article called “What is SAD?” I had the honor of having my dear friend and psychologist, Dennis Ramos, to share his thoughts on this type of depression that affects many people during the winter months.

Make time to shop! 


A girl needs to shop, especially on the weekend. It does not matter if we are shopping at the mall or online, shopping makes us happy. When I feel down or stressed out, retail therapy works the best. Our brain adapts, and my brain has adapted to shopping to feel happy and relaxed.Studies show that shopping reduces stress and, besides practicing yoga and exercising, shopping remains the best and most effective way for me to minimize sadness and beat the winter blues. I just scroll and scroll through the pages on Chiara Ferragni’s website, Ulta, and Sephora, until I find that product that I need and love!

Does shopping make you feel better? Share you thoughts, ladies. 

As for me, I will be logging off. I will chat with all of you soon. Please remember to let me know what you would like to see on my blog.

Xo Xo,

Nunzia
