Happy Monday, friends! Consider today a #NoMakeupMonday because I’m excited to share my latest beauty obsession. I had the chance to visit Modern Acupuncture in River Oaks Shopping Center for cosmetic acupuncture in celebration of National No Makeup Day on April 26. It’s no secret that I love finding the latest anti-aging trends to try, so I immediately jumped at the opportunity to get in the chair and “tingle.”
Let’s get real: beauty is more than makeup and outward appearances. I’ve always felt that our beauty lies in our health and natural qualities. Over the years, I’ve strived to find a skin routine that works for me and a hair regimen that makes my locks shine, but only recently did I realize that nourishing our body plays such an important role. Over the last six weeks, I’ve taken Ionicell® for Women and have dived into a deeper approach to health and beauty.
Smiling nervously, fidgeting my honors cords, holding onto my cap for dear life, and trying to focus on not trip on my royal blue gown, I anticipated the snap of the camera as my graduation announcer read my name. As I got off the stage steps and filed back into line with the rest of my classmates waiting to toss up our hats, I was riding a high. Underneath my wide smile and beaming eyes, I looked side to side at the other graduates and realized one thing: we all had no idea what the future would hold.
Florals for spring? Groundbreaking. While florals might be the most suspected pattern of the season, it’s also the most tried-and-true. First date? Florals. Sunday brunch? Florals. Meeting the parents? Well, duh, florals. Without fail, floral dresses continue to dominate the spring and summer season in the most darling of ways. This seasonal trend doesn’t have to break the bank and there are plenty of stunning floral dresses under $50.
Words matter. Whether we realize it or not, the way we speak to and treat others can have a tremendous effect on both our lives and theirs. As society gets more divided and our politics get more divisive, kindness is more crucial than ever before. The world is craving it, and it’s our time to deliver. I had the opportunity to connect with Natalie McKearin, founder of The Kind Coalition. Her clothing brand is a social good movement that not only promotes the importance of kindness but also donates 50% of the proceeds to anti-bullying organizations.
Many beauty goers are familiar with the HydraFacial and microdermabrasion, but dermalinfusion is giving the popular service a run for its money. I visited Bare Necessities Spa in Houston to try the dermalinfusion facial and learn more about the process.
