Cheffin’ up with @TheArtisanal Kitchen

I’ve been trying to say no to toasted bagels and cheese for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and saying yes to making a nice home cooked meal instead. This is why I was pleased to receive the Three Olives Olive Oil by The Artisanal Kitchen, as I had no choice but to cook if I wanted to try it out. So far I’ve made fried rice, drizzled some over my spaghetti, and more!

Join the FiXIT Street Team

FiXiT Foundation Builds “Street Teams” In U.S. to Save Animals
Volunteers needed in Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angeles and Phoenix to promote spay/neuter


we are both fixed!

To help bring spay and neuter to everyone, FiXIT Foundation, an organization dedicated to eliminating the use of euthanasia due to pet overpopulation, is recruiting volunteers in four major U.S. markets to help with its initiative,

“We are thrilled to expand our volunteer network to save the lives of more dogs and cats around the country,” said Kellie Heckman, executive director, FiXiT Foundation. “Our volunteers are the foundation of our efforts to save the lives of the four million animals that are killed by euthanasia each year due to companion animal overpopulation.”

The FiXiT Foundation is launching Street Teams in Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angeles and Phoenix to reduce the high rates of euthanasia in these cities. Initially, volunteers will promote as a resource for people that need help with the expense of spay and neuter, and they will help the animals in their communities by building relationships among surgery sponsors, volunteers, veterinary clinics and pet owners. To participate in the Street Team network, volunteers must commit to a minimum of 15 hours per month for a minimum of six-months.

For those interested in joining a Street Team, FiXIT Foundation is hosting an orientation via webinar on Saturday, March 24 at 12 p.m. EST. Registration for the webinar is available online at For more information about the FiXiT Foundation and their Street Team volunteer opportunities with, please visit


Evelyn Lozada Launches “E” by Evelyn Lozada


The gorgeous @EvelynLozada has announced the launch of her new cosmetics line called “E” by Evelyn Lozada. The reality star of Basketball Wives and the newest upcoming VH1 show called Ev and Ocho has created a high performance line at affordable prices. The cosmetics line is based on the classic look Evelyn is known for; her shimmery eyes. Fans will be able to purchase eye shadows, powder pigments, blushes, bronzers, lipwear, lipgloss and nail polish from the collection to recreate looks that Evelyn would normally wear.


“I have always been a risk taker when it comes to my personal style and the opportunity to leave my creative mark on the cosmetics world is beyond thrilling and a huge dream,” Lozada said. “I wanted to create a trendy high-quality product that didn’t need to come with high costs for that savvy beauty consumer.”

Below are a few pieces from her collection.






“E” by Evelyn Lozada is available for purchase online now on her website and will be available in retailers in the near future. If you’re a fan of the beautiful reality star and the creator of the infamous phrase “you are a non-mother f*cking factor” then you should definitely pick up one of her palettes.

Get that New New @lushcosmetics

I have always loved LUSH and walked by 10000 times in Toronto on Queen Street and then in New York on 14th Street. This place is fantastic and also Canadian!  I have received their multi-tier soaps and sizzling bath bombs as Christmas presents but I have yet to be an avid user… That is until now!

Maybe this one little tin will replace everything in my bathroom…

My girl Fatema keeps her top hair secrets ‘under wraps’ but I have no doubt in my mind when she told me about the NEW shampoo that makes your hair grow beautifully.


There’s nothing new about our stimulating cinnamon and clove shampoo bar. But, it is incredibly effective at giving you thicker, shinier hair and invigorating your scalp. When stress or life goes to your head, our shampoo will encourage hair growth and motivated tired scalps with spice and mint oils. It’s intense, (in the best possible way), but works wonders on irritated scalps or hair that’s thinning. Rosemary and nettle herbs rejuvenate, and make your hair shiny and soft as a feather. All of this, in one little beautifully fragranced spice bar; are you ready for a NEW shampoo?
  • Bar on top: Customer and staff favorite, NEW is perfectly suited to all hair types, not just those who are feeling follicly challenged.
  • A force to be reckoned with: Herbs and spice, and everything minty and nice for shiny, healthy hair and scalps.
  • Spice up your life: We use cinnamon leaf oil to stimulate your follicles and encourage healthy hair growth.

I totally can’t wait to try this!!

@BariBeauty – Pure Ice in All Night Long



Here for my 4th @BariBeauty Pure Ice post. Just in time for the bone chilling cold weather we’ve been having in LA, I decided to try out All Night Long, a dark royal blue.


Base coat. Two coats of All Night Long. Top Coat.

How pretty does this look? Love the Pure Ice line because of how impeccably fast they dry. Give this color a try, won’t you?
