My Other Jobs

In addition to loving fashion, I have a few other things that I love to do.  Check them out!

I teach people how to make fun greeting cards and paper crafts.

I sell subscription boxes of greeting cards so you can always have a card on-hand when you need one. No more running to the store at the last minute just to buy a card!

I help run Cosmetics for a Cause, a non-profit that collects and donates makeup to women in need. (You’d be surprised at how many women don’t use the “free gift with purchase” they receive.  We are thankful that they donate the items so we can give them to women who need them.)

I’ve often thought of focusing on just one and letting the others fall by the wayside, but I love them all too much to do that.

What do you love to do?

Relief from Menopause with Equelle

#ad I’ve always loved fashion and making bold statements with my outfits through color and shape.  When I was in my twenties and early thirties, I wore whatever I liked. Everything always fit perfectly and I didn’t consciously make selections to hide flaws or worry about getting too hot.  I never anticipated that one day I would have to make adjustments to my outfit choices to compensate for the “change” in my body shape and temperature. Thanks, menopause.  Because of you, now when I make fashion choices, my priorities are completely different.

I’ve been enduring menopause symptoms ever since I had a hysterectomy twenty years ago, when I was 35.  I live in sunny south Florida, where the weather is always hot and humid.  Add hot flashes into the mix, and sometimes it’s just unbearable.  I know that hormone replacement therapy is one choice many women make to alleviate hot flashes and other menopause symptoms.  However, I have never taken hormones because I don’t think they are the right choice for me.

I love the idea of a supplement to help me get some relief from the hot flashes I’ve been suffering for so long. EQUELLE® is a hormone-free‡, non-prescription dietary supplement that helps address several symptoms of menopause.† Thanks to @EquelleOfficial, I can choose a non-hormonal‡ remedy over choosing to just live with these menopause symptoms. You can, too. We can enjoy life despite hot flashes, and I can finally enjoy the warm Florida weather!  Help me and EQUELLE® empower women in menopause by sharing your own story using the hashtag #LiveHotStayCool. Learn more about the Live Hot, Stay Cool campaign by visiting

‡Free from human or animal hormones. Contains trace amounts of isoflavones, a type of naturally occurring plant hormone.

Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer

Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer:

Friends!  I have TWO WORDS to say about the Revlon One-Step Hair DryerIT WORKS.  I knew immediately when I dried the first section of my hair that this product was life-changing. If you’ve been following my hair journey on Instagram, you’ll know that I’ve finally grown out my hair and as it stands right now, it is actually very long for me!  I still have about two to four months to go to get it to the exact style I want, and in the meantime, I’ve been struggling with how to manage and style it.

My hair is naturally thick and wavy, which is a disaster in the Florida humidity.  That’s one of the reasons why I’ve always worn it short.  If the hair isn’t there, there is nothing to style and manage, right? 🙂 It was always so easy!

A short and dramatic cut was perfect when I worked as a runway model. However, now that I’ve ventured into the world of lifestyle modeling, I have found that I need to tame down my attitude just a bit.  I work in the Miami market, and most of the jobs are for pharmaceutical companies, cruise lines, and hospitals.  Let’s just say the market isn’t the high-fashion capitol of the world.  (If I lived in the northeast, I would definitely still rock a pixie cut, but I need to blend so I can work in the market where I live.  And my hair is still considered “short”!)

All of that background info brings me to the purpose of today’s post.  With my longer hair came a ton of frustration.  I’m not used to using products and I don’t have any styling talents.

Enter my new best friend….the

Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer

When I tell you it is amazing, believe me.  It’s amazing.  It dries, straightens, and lifts your hair all with one brush stroke.  I styled my entire hair in under five minutes.  UNDER FIVE MINUTES. And the result is straight hair with NO FRIZZ.  None!

Styling Products are a Must

The hair dryer gets very hot.  I don’t think it gets any hotter than any other blow dryer or curling iron, but when you consider the fact that the powerful heat is blowing and straightening your hair at the same time, directly on the hair, you will definitely need to use styling products to protect your hair from the heat of the dryer.

My Process

First, I vigorously towel dry my hair.

Next, I use my regular blow dryer to get rid of a majority of the dampness.

Third, I apply Rusk’s Get Str8 leave-in conditioner to my entire hair from roots to ends.

Finally, before using the Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer, I apply Redken High Rise Volume Duo Volumizer only to the roots of my hair.

After I’m finished drying, instead of hair spray, I use Redken’s Wax Blast to lift, separate, and style individual pieces of hair.  This product adds the final styling touch.

And that’s it!  For an investment of under $100, you can have a salon in your own home.  WIn!

I searched for the lowest prices on all of the products I used, and I linked them all in my Amazon Store. (And FREE SHIPPING with Amazon Prime!) Treat yourself!!  One small investment will save you so many trips to the salon for a blow-out. You’re worth it!!

Explosion Cake

      Comments Off on Explosion Cake

Explosion Cake –

I first discovered Amirah Kassem and her incredible rainbow explosion cake on Instagram.  Her cakes are amazing and I’m a HUGE fan of her personal style!  Amirah now has a line of cooking supplies and a kit to make her explosion cake at William Sonoma.  Naturally, her products came out after purchased the ingredients to attempt to make an explosion cake on my own.  I think my cake came out pretty good for a first try. However, now that I know I can purchase all of Amirah’s authentic ingredients, that’s what I’ll be doing the next time I make an explosion cake.  And believe me, there will be a next time.  This was so fun and so easy to make!


To make the cake on your own, you’ll need:

6 cakes (three boxes of cake mix, dye the mixes any color you’d like)

3 containers of frosting

1 bag of M&M candies and various sprinkles for the inside of the cake

Lots of sprinkles!  (you’ll be adding some sprinkles to the inside and you’ll need sprinkles to decorate the outside of the cake, too.)

Step-by-Step Photos

three of the six layers are ready to go!

use the lid of the sprinkles as a guide to cut a circle out of each cake layer BUT DO NOT CUT A CIRCLE IN THE TOP LAYER (so only cut circles out of five layers, and leave the sixth layer whole)

put a thin layer of frosting on each layer to hold the layers together

keep adding layers | layer, frosting, layer frosting

add all the layers

before you add the final layer (the one without the hole) fill the center of the cake with your candy and some sprinkles

put the top layer on (the one without the center cut out) and start icing the entire cake

don’t let the centers go to waste! use the leftover frosting and sprinkles to decorate those, too!

decorate for any occasion or holiday

how fun is this????!!!!!

Let me say I HATE the kitchen because whenever I attempt to cook or bake, something always goes wrong.  This cake was effortless!!! If I can do it, YOU can do it!

Now, let’s take a look at the best part!!  Cutting the cake!!!

Here is a look at Amirah’s cake.  (All photos are copyright Williams Sonoma)
