Golden Potion: Valentia Even Glow Vitamin C Serum

I make no secret to the fact that I fully advocate trying various beauty products, and as I get older, this necessary enthusiasm continues its boisterous skincare journey. Our hair, skin and nails are sometimes among the first things people notice so ensuring their well-being is super important. Plus, I have sensitive skin that requires a lot of attention, so the bathroom countertop has become a makeshift sanctuary of cosmetic promises and vitamins alongside my Broad Spectrum SPF 70 daily regimen. Yes, always sunscreen. No excuses. But with so many products on the market claiming this, that and the other, the quest for the perfect age-defying, anti-gravity, wrinkle-reducing, fine line-eliminating, nutrient-building, super-hydrating, organic anti-aging serum can be daunting and really exhausting. 

Devoid of vanity, there are times when the state of my complexion can impinge upon my entire day, I'm sorry to say. So, when given the opportunity to review Valentia's Even Glow Vitamin C Serum, I couldn't have been happier to nourish my skin with its results driven formulation, devised to enhance antioxidant protection, repair damaged tissue cells, and boost skin's radiance. Utilizing a combination of natural ingredients, Valentia has conjured a luxurious army to defend my skin without any harmful side effects or harsh chemicals. 

This product contains no parabens & phosphates = AWESOME! I also love that I'm getting each of these natural ingredients in one powerful serum.
 Vitamin C: Protects and Promotes the Skin’s Natural Processes 
Sea Buckthorn Oil: Potent Healing Antioxidant 
Rosehip Seed Oil: Renowned for Anti-Aging and Skin Rejuvenation 
Resistem: Reduces Inflammation and Regenerates Skin Tissue Faster 
Hyaluronic Acid: Protects and Helps Retain Moisture 

First things first, Valentia Even Glow Serum didn't irritate my sensitive skin. The consistency of the serum is ideal for easy application, and after cleansing my skin it's become the first thing I reach for every morning. The amber pharmacy jar factor and a fresh citrus aroma makes the experience all the better... and so far, my skin is noticeably smoother. 

Discover what Valentia can do for your skin & grab a bottle. Totally worth it.

When life gives you lemons... add Patron

Yesterday's climax was hell-bent in every conceivable way, but even as I framed the scope of persuasive language, I'm grateful for silver-linings and unfathomably small miracles. During the course of this picture-taking calamity, I (in retrospect) remorsefully set my clutch on top of the truck and then proceeded to drive off only to remember this ill-constructed act an hour later. So there I am, set deep in the valley of the shadows of horror while driving back to the scene of the crime... where of course, the clutch had turned Houdini and magically disappeared.

But the long and short of it is that when I finally got home, a welcomed voice on the answering machine said they had my belongings safe and sound... minus the cash that had been removed during its prior abduction. So thank you Jessica for finding it, driving 60 miles out of your way so that I could retrieve it, and for saving me unwarranted amounts of angst. And in a sigh of reprieve and raw contentment, I've come …

Designs by Bella: Vintage Lollipops x Magazzini del Sale Capsule Collection

Last year, Italian designer Graziano Moro of Magazzini Del Sale contacted me about collaborating and designing a five-piece Limited Edition capsule collection for their SS 11 Love Can Change the World t-shirt line. Having never been given such an incredibly surreal opportunity before, you can imagine my absolute surprise... followed by some sort of psychotic jubilation. At the time, I'd only been drawing for about a month, which means the designs you're seeing are some of my very first artworks! Brainstorming endless possibilities, the process began with a series of sketches, clipart graphics, and silhouette collages until I further conceptualized the vision by deciding to submit only my illustrations.  After presenting numerous options, Graziano and the team exclusively selected their top picks... and after several months of diligence, reworking, and constant communication, my artwork was transformed into a beautiful line of ecru shirts forever deemed, Vintage Lollipops x M…
