Toast This Morning

Tuesday,July 28, 2015
Toast for "yours truly"this Tuesday…  Breakfast is one of my favorite meals of the day… Diet is not just important for your body, but for your skin’s health as well.

Thank Goodness It's Friday: Time To Tan!

Friday,July 24, 2015
SUN TANNING TIPS HEY EVERYONE, With this heat you know where I'll be this weekend! Will all this talk about self-tanners... It's time to suntan and get my natural glow! Many have been asking,  "How do I get the look of suntan glowing skin this summer without damaging the skin"..?  You are probably thinking…  "SAMELIA you are all ready tan, what do you know about tanning"? LMAO :) There is no doubt the lying in the sun makes you look and feel better! But we all must remember that the sunlight breaks down collagen, elastin fibers and damages the skin cells, so people like yours truly with olive skin have less of a risk for skin damage. Those of you with pale of less olive should totally invest in skin protection…  "SUNSCREEN" is a must! Nothing better then keeping a healthy glow without having to damage your skin by baking in the sun, although I know some of you will go in the sun anyway! There are so many options for tanning now days without setting foot in the sun as I expressed in my previous blogs. Sometimes appearing even better on the skin than regular "SUN TANNING"!

GREAT SUMMER PRODUCTS Hey guys! Hope all of you had a wonderful weekend..? Definitly  can say yours truy was thrown off by the rain this weekend. Talk about global warming...   On another note, a lot of people have been asking me to share a few the summer beauty products I love.  This Glosser by color edge I really like that it’s "NOT" greasy like most and can be used on all hair types.  Give the hair an amazing shine.  Tarte cosmetics Amazonian clay waterproof bronzer is still one of my favorites.

Cornrows Are Back

Wednesday,July 15, 2015
CORNROWS ARE BACK!!!  Yours truly has been trying to figure out the next hairstyle... After all the votes on my Instagram I had to go with the sexy corn rows/braids. So of course I had to call up one of the best braiders in town celebrity hairstylist friend "Aliky", (a.k.a @aliikyw). I'm "FEELING MYSELF" this Woman crush Wednesday in this sexy hot look! Yours truly was hesitant at first, as I do cornrows almost every summer... And, not everyone can wear them. But, I love how it brings out my face, jaw line and helps instantly give your face a lift!LOL. It not only is a sexy hairstyle... But it is also great when working out in the summer heat, and just a low maintenance hair do. Take a look at some of these braid stylist has done SAMELIA, Travis Scott, Miley Cyrus Braids    

Makeup for the heat!!!

Monday,July 13, 2015
The heat is definitely on! It's funny, but I keep getting asked, "What style of makeup should I wear in the heat?" Well, I can relate to both East and West Coast. As, you all know yours truly is from Miami, FL where humidity, heat and rain at times can be unbearable, to LA, where you have the dessert, dry and sunny California environment.  There's one key to makeup in the heat: WATERPROOF!  Makeup that is water resistant will help you be able to create looks during these high summer temperatures. No smudges throughout the day whether you are on the beach or in the hot muggy city. Depending on the humidity in your city... Try choosing products oil-free, using powder or tinted moisturizers, and this will let your skin perspire naturally. Yours truly uses this lightweight NARS All Day Luminous Powder Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 24.
