Cosmeticare – Coolsculpting for Upper Arms Update

Post written by me for Cosmeticare. All opinions are my own.  I’ve mentioned a few times that I was considering more body-sculpting. An area that has been bothering me are the back of my arms. I have been covering them up with sleeves, and would like to wear sleeveless again if possible. I’ve had consultations at Cosmeticare, and a few weeks ago, I DID IT! I tried Coolsculpting®! I picked this procedure because it is non-surgical, FDA-cleared, effective, and the results are long-term. Coolsculpting works by delivering controlled cooling to target the fat cells underneath the skin. The fat cells are frozen then die. Over time, your body naturally processes … READ MORE

Valvoline Instant Oil Change: Wipe Out Breast Cancer with Pink Wipers!

I partnered with Valvoline Instant Oil Change (VIOC) for this project, however, opinions here are my own. If you’re starting to see pink wipers on vehicles, it’s all for Breast Cancer Awareness month. Every year in October, we start to see a lot of pink to remind us that it affects a lot of women, and we ourselves need to do routine check-ups. Some men get it too. They are saying every 2 minutes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer AND 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. With alarming numbers like that, we all know at least one person battling breast cancer. My one … READ MORE

prAna Sustainable Clothing Movement – Why Organic Cotton Matters

This post is written by me for prAna. All opinions are my own. It’s a gorgeous morning in Newport Beach, California. It was a little chilly in the morning so I brought out my new fall gear from prAna. Did you know that they only use Organic Cotton? Before prAna, I didn’t even know what that means. prAna cares about where their cotton comes from, because they not only care about the environment, they care about the farmers and their makers. Organic cotton is not only better for the environment in so many ways, the farmers are not exposed to harmful pesticides and chemicals, but the cotton also drinks less … READ MORE

Cosmeticare: Why Choose Coolsculpting

Post written by me for Cosmeticare. All opinions are my own.  Now that I’m in my forties, I’ve been thinking a lot about self-care and ways to look my best.

Just because I’m a mom doesn’t mean I have to look frumpy or like I just rolled out of bed. I want to feel pretty and I want to feel attractive. My kids are older now and I can’t use … READ MORE

Cosmeticare – When Is The Right Time To Start BOTOX?

I think most people know about BOTOX injections and what it is. It has been available for a long time, and when we think about aging, we think about BOTOX, but when is the right time to start? It will be different for everyone, and what I have learned recently from visiting Cosmeticare Medspa in Corona Del Mar is that you can start young or whenever you feel comfortable especially if you know crows feet, deep lines, or wrinkles runs in your family. It is a temporary procedure that slows down aging. When I was younger, I thought it was cool I could make facial expressions my friends couldn’t do. … READ MORE
