Super Cool DIY Box Subscription @MJProjectDIY

I am really excited about a small boxes of goodies that come in the mail.

Cold as Ice

The most beautiful one just arrived from my friends at M&J Trimming Project DIY. I received the starter kit that included 2 projects and all the material required to make the Crystal Clear Statement Necklace and the On the Rocks Bracelet Duo.IMG_0350 IMG_0353Since NYC is so cold recently, this collection is perfect way to spend an afternoon inside your cozy home.  The Project DIY Team created this project based on the seasonal iridescent colors and frosted textures of winter. Colorful crystals and sparkling metals that you can wear all year round.

Each to the packages come with all the tools and parts. You can get the instructions online or via their app Project DIY. The step by step instructions make it really clear and I laid out all the pieces as the shown.  There is a variation on how you can lay out the gems on the necklace.

It took me a little over 30 mins to finish both projects. Can’t wait to wear them on Thurs!

NUTRITIONISTE ULTRA-LIFT @GarnierCAN Transformer Anti-Aging Skin Corrector

My mom was so nice to test out a new Garnier product for me called the Ultra Lift Transformer.

She says, “it is not too oily, nor creamy. It has a trace of scent makes her feel good. Her skin immediately felt smooth and it is not sticky at all”


momMy mom has beautiful skin and even in her early 60’s she hardly needs makeup, foundation to look absolutely glamorous.  This moisturizer comes out white but adapts to your skin tone.  You can use it for daily transformation. Experience younger-looking skin from the 1st contact. Upon application, skin is more even, luminous, and fine lines look reduced. Our auto-adjusting formula, with Pro-Retinol and micro-pigments, works over time so that wrinkles look reduced, skin feels firmer, and younger-looking.  I hope my skin look great like my mom and grandma when I get to their age.

If you are looking for something lighter than a BB cream and less than foundation, give this new Garnier product a try!
