*Disclaimer: I have not been paid or received anything in return for promoting this company. I simply like the company’s product and its business model.
Lagoa swimwear is a women’s swimwear brand that offers invisible zipper pockets to keep your valuables safe at the beach, pool party, or just out and about! The patent pending pocket swimsuits are designed by seasoned fashion wholesale representative, Lauren Carkhuff. The inspiration for the swimwear line began in 2012 while she was living in Brazil. “I found myself wanting to go in the ocean with all of my friends, but nervous to leave my keys, money, and credit card unattended on the beach. I searched everywhere and could not find a swimsuit that allowed me to carry my valuables with me while in the water,” says Carkhuff.

Multi-Masking: The Customized Facial Learn How to Spot-Treat Your Face
Multi-Masking is a newer trend that has emerged with which I am totally on board. It is a customized facial that you can do right at home and specially spot-treat your face. Essentially, you place a different mask on a different part of your face according to its specific needs at the time. Whether you are treating acne, dryness, oiliness, or are just looking for a calming mask for certain areas of your face, multi-masking will allow you to treat the areas with specificity.
My 5-Step Nightly Beauty Routine My Quest to Stay Looking Young
My nightly beauty routine is fairly extensive, but it’s worth it if it keeps me looking young and vibrant. I devised this beauty routine after years of trial and error. I’ve also done quite a bit of research into the recommendations of dermatologists and aestheticians. This particular routine that I follow was recommended by an aesthetician from NYC. When I tried the five step process, my face, neck, and decolletage felt fantastic! I knew this was the beauty regimen for me.
If you have any questions about the products, let me know in the comments, and I’ll reply! Also, please let me know about your beauty routines – how does yours differ from mine?

Valentino Fall Couture Collection 2016 Coverage of the Departure of Designer Maria Grazia Chiuri
I don’t cover many, if any at all, of the major couture or RTW fashion shows because the major fashion magazines and blogs do an excellent job in their coverage. However, there is one fashion house that I’ve always found to be truly inspiring. Their designs stir up the senses and, ultimately, go straight to your heart. That design house is Valentino. I have posted about my Valentino handbag before. You can check out my blog post here.
Wednesday evening, July 6th, in Paris, lucky attendees of Valentino’s couture show were treated to designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli’s Elizabethan vision that traveled back to Shakespearean times. The runway was filled with pearl-embellished bodices, architectural puffed sleeves and a bevy of (presumably detachable) Elizabethan ruffs. Personally, I loved it. I would wear these outfits everyday if it wear practical!
