During the first leg of my trip to China, I hit Guangzhou staying at the White Swan Hotel on Shimian Island. Previously controlled by the French, the Island is true to the French architectural nature that resembles streets of Paris. Resonating with the French feel, I decided to pamper myself with the new Aveeno Positively Radiant collection to make my stay luxurious. 

Included in the collection is:

  • Positively Radiant Exfoliating Body Wash
  • Positively Radiant Body Lotion
  • Positively Radiant Targeted Tone Corrector

…all delightfully amazing on the skin.

Each product provides a nourishing set of benefits to the skin that can instantly transform dry dull skin to be radiant and hydrating. The lotion offers 24-hours of moisturization for softer and smoother skin. The body wash leaves the skin healthy, smoother and smoother thanks to the scrub beads in the wash. The targeted dark spot corrector improves the look of dark spots and discoloration for uneven skin in as little as one week!

Picture Worth a Thousand Words

Now I am still using the dark spot corrector for my troublesome stretch marks and will report back on them. However, I can say that the body wash and lotion are incredible! My partner suffers from severe dry skin and yet because of psoriasis normal lotions don’t work. Super sensitive lotions are required to calm the skin and nourish the cells. Thankfully Aveeno’s products are chock full of Soy and active natural ingredients, the body wash and lotion is safe for the hypoallergenic dry skin!

It’s safe to say that my skin is grateful to have Aveeno on this trip! Most hotels body wash and lotion are actually hydration stripping. So being able to bring this with me while traveling Asia was AMAZING!

TL;DR

Go give it a try, you may discover Aveeno’s new radiant collection to be just the thing you need for your home or travel! I know it helped on my trip to absolutely give me the ‘spa resort’ feeling I needed away from home!


How Important is Daily Lotion?

So Aveeno’s daily moisturizer is clinically proven to even tone and texture in just 4 weeks to reveal naturally radiant skin. With Total Soy Complex and natural light diffusers, it helps improve the look of brown spots, leaving your skin looking luminous. It’s oil-free, hypoallergenic and noncomedogenic, but why does that matter? Why is lotion so important for the body?

The most important times to use moisturizer are after a bath, shave or exfoliation. For some, this might be twice a day. Moisturizing after a shower is very important because hot water strips all the moisture and oils out of your skin, leaving it parched and dry. While hot water may be relaxing, it also wreaks havoc on your skin. Never skip the moisturizer.

-The University of Tennessee Medical Center 

If you have never used lotion before, you may not know that it can help combat acne.  The skin on your face, ears, neck and chest are very sensitive to environmental changes and are the most frequent areas of the body known to develop skin cancer. These areas of skin also shed cells more rapidly than other parts of the body and therefore need moisture to repair itself, which allows for younger skin cells to rise to the surface. Moisturizing every day can reduce the chance of developing extreme dryness or oiliness. Both extremes are harmful to the skin and cause common skin conditions like acne.

If you do suffer from acne and these tips do not help, do see a dermatologist as it can be a more serious form of skin abnormality that needs medical treatment.

Aveeno + White Swan Hotel

My trip is this hotel was indeed complete thanks to Aveeno for giving me this collection to use on my journey. A special thank you to the team from Asia!

Sure, my trip may have been just as nice without Aveeno but it did give me the exceptional luxurious spa treatment I so desperately needed in the hot and humid city of Guangzhou.

MAC Cosmetics X Patrick Starr Makeup Collection Premier Party

#MACPATRICKSTARR

You know what truly inspires the broken dreams, broken hearts, disdained, lost, and depressed to pursue their dreams? Success stories from people like Patrick Starr; a diligently positive, passionate, and humble MUA from Florida turned YouTube’s biggest makeup star. How did Patrick Starr get his start in makeup before turning into the biggest name in makeup? To be frank, it wasn’t something you think from movies like The Devil Wears Prada, no this was more humbling. A MAC Cosmetics manager in a Florida mall gave a young hardworking creative soul a job. An opportunity. A chance.

These days, we find ourselves striving for more in life, to make it to the top and sometimes forget to throw the rope back down. Or maybe we just don’t want to. But not Patrick. Nope. Patrick Starr is an angel. It was no wonder he came out on stage in wings covered in silver glitter and white diamonds. It’s no wonder that as Patrick spoke about his past, his pains, and his love for his fans that the whole room turned into sobs, cheers, “YASSS”, and snaps. Coming full circle, starting from the bottom, working at a MAC Cosmetics store and now being the first ever influencer to work with MAC Cosmetics for a whole new makeup collection speaks volumes of the road Patrick has taken to this point.

This premier party was not in celebration to the makeup line, though that is part of it. No, the real celebration was the belief that success does happen. It can happen to anyone, you just cannot give up. You Cannot Give Up.  As Patrick showcased his new products, the words he spoke gave a solemn understanding of a critical realization,  “I can’t believe this is happening. If I can do it, you can do it. You can do anything.”

Congrats to PS, you deserve this and much more darling. Check out Patrck Starr X MACCosmetics collab collection here.

It’s Official. I’m Twitch Affiliate.

I have been on Twitch for over 4 1/2 years and never could I have imagined I could get affiliate. Honestly, recent changes to their partnership programs have made it easier to understand what I needed to do to qualify. Now as an affiliate, I am super motivated to work harder (with my best buddy Cresta Star) to get partnered!

What does it mean to be Twitch Affiliate?

An affiliate is someone who has been invited by the live streaming platform Twitch to monetize their live streams. Affiliates can start earning revenue on their channels via Bits or subs. Affiliates can also earn revenue from the sale of games and in-game items that originate from their channel page. The next step for an Affiliate is to get partnered which increases the percentage of profits received from all revenue sources mentioned above.

I will still be on YouTube for my non-gaming stuff, vlogs, and more! Everything will come together to create a really awesome branding package where I can execute some exciting events very soon!
