Hello, November! What is it about fall that makes everyone happy? Maybe it is because the holiday season is not that far away.
This cozy season brings us so much fun, and Thanksgiving holiday, is just around the corner. Then, right after Turkey Day, a new Holiday season begins. I love Laura Vitale’s Pumpkin Spice Latte during this time of year.
I purchased this adorable scarecrow for Halloween. When I brought it home, Claudio welcomed this cute little doll to our house with a bark and a gentle push to the floor. I’m sharing some cute pictures taken on Halloween.🎃🎃 I will be back for my next blog update soon. Please be sure to comment below. ❤️
year, a year after my first knee surgery, I was inspired to write an
article called Doctor
and Patient to encourage people to communicate with their
physicians. These dedicated and caring professionals are there to
assist us 24/7. When it comes to any type of trauma, flu, broken
bones, you name it, these amazing human beings, with their
overwhelming and exhausting schedules, are always ready to take care
of us! These men and women deserve the highest credit for the
brilliant work they do for us.
Friday, I had my second knee
arthroscopy, which is a surgical procedure for diagnosing and
treating many problems around the knee joints. My knee was fixed for
the second time by a wonderful orthopedic surgeon.
shortly after the surgery, the doctor informed my family that running
can be detrimental to my knees. So, to avoid further problems and
surgeries, I should avoid running. My doctor did, however, suggest
swimming and biking as replacement exercises. I decided that, if a
sports doctor advises his patient not to run, I need to take that
The love, the help, and support from my whole family has been unwavering. Now I am on the road to recovery, and I am looking forward to starting a new cardiovascular program that will keep me in shape. As for now, I miss running, but let’s take it one day at a time.
will chat with you on a new blog post coming soon. XO!
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
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.
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.
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.
