Pretty | Valentia Review

Thank you Valentia for sending products to help make me pretty.
These lovely people generously sent over their Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask as well as the True Glow Eye Cream. My sensitive skin requires a lot of attention, so I always appreciate Valentia's combination of natural, organic ingredients (alcohol and paraben free) and could not have been happier to nourish my skin with both the Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask and True Glow Eye Cream.

First things first, the packaging is gorgeous. Sleek. Modern. Love it. Moreover, you're getting great products too. I used the Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask and True Glow Eye Cream in conjunction (although not required) and neither product irritated my sensitive skin. The consistency of the True Glow Eye Cream is ideal, plus the amber pharmacy jar and a fresh citrus aroma make the experience all the better.

I would have preferred a thicker formula with the Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask but the 'sweet tart' fragrance and easy application make for yet another wonderful Valentia product. They just never disappoint. Don't be alarmed with the tingling, which as noted on the product is a normal sensation. While I received this at a discount for my honest and unbiased review, there is nothing about them that I don't continuously appreciate.

Discover what Valentia can do for your skin. 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…
