I really enjoyed watching the Acadamy Awards Sunday night!! Most of all , I loved watching the celebrities on the Red Carpet. Here were the people the stood out to me the most as far as their overall look .
Michelle Williams was my absolute favorite! I loved her Louis Vuitton red dress and her classic make up look and cute pixie hair. She looked perfectly put together and absolutely stunning!!

My next favorite overall look was Stacy Keibler. Although she was not up for any awards, and only came as George Cloony’s date, she did everything right as far as her dress, hair and make up. I couldn’t take my eyes of her dress. I loved the draping and how shiny it was. She wore a Marchesa gown (from the Fall 2012 collection).Photo from Trend 911.com
My final favorite was Milla Jovovich. I heard her say “she wanted to look like a bride”. She looked absolutely gorgeous!! This was an Elie Saab dress. I also loved her bold red lips.
Who were your favorites from the Oscar’s this year??

The winter has taken a toll on my hair. The last couple months, it has felt super dry. So, for the last couple weeks I have been on the hunt for shampoo and conditioner that could revive my hair and bring it back to its silky smooth days…
I have two sets of shampoo and conditioner, both are my current favorites because they have left my hair softer, silkier and more manageable.
The first is Philip Kingsley’s Moisture Extreme Shampoo and Conditioner. This stuff is serious business. I can tell almost immediately that it is helping to mend my split ends and dry strands. The conditioner makes my hair immediately silky. I leave the conditioner on for an extra 5 minutes or so to make my hair super soft. Both shampoo and conditioner are in the $20 range.

The other brand is John Frieda’s new Root Awakening Purify and Nourish Shampoo and Conditioner. This shampoo and conditioner smell amazing and make my scalp and hair feel hydrated, refreshed, clean and silky. I am super picky when it comes to my conditioner. And, usually I don’t like a shampoo unless the conditioner that goes with it is amazing. This duo is fantastic, and I would definitely buy this again at my local Target. Here’s what the John Frieda website says about this product,
- “Invigorates and feeds from root to tip with a fresh tingle for bouncy, shiny, radiant hair that’s noticeably more resilient with every use.
- With natural Eucalyptus and peppermint oil, this formula stimulates the scalp with a cool, tingling sensation. Massaging your scalp encourages circulation, which will wake-up healthier-looking new growth.
- Gently cleans without stripping.”

Hope this helps if you are also looking for a really good moisture rich shampoo and conditioning duo. Thanks for reading!!

FTC -some of these products were sent from PR for consideration. I was not paid for this post and I only write about products I am 100 % in love with.
Just wanted to take a few moments to share a trend I am seeing for spring 2012 and one that I love! NEON and NEUTRAL. I like the idea of wearing all tan’s, khaki’s or cream colors and accessorizing with neon green, pink, yellow or blue!
Check out a few of these photos I pulled as inspiration of the neon and neutral trend from Pinterest.com.
Hope everyone is having a great Tuesday!!! If you have not found me on Pinterest- here is my link !!! I’d love to see you over there. http://pinterest.com/leolucky777/

I have so many fun beauty products and spring posts planned and can’t wait to keep sharing with you guys all of my amazing beauty finds!!! How was everyone’s weekend?? I had a birthday along with my adorable niece McKinley, we share a birthday on the 17th. Here is a photo of us I took with my phone. It was a really enjoyable weekend.
I have a few beauty items that are new recent found LOVES that I want to tell you guys about. The first is a foundation. I don’t stray from my MAC studio Fix Fluid or BRTC Jasmine Water BB cream too often, but Rain Cosmetics has a new foundation called,
“Conceal and Reveal.” It is a new silky foundation that is lightweight and has medium to full coverage.
To me it almost feels whipped, kind of like a mousse, but with INCREDIBLE coverage while feeling soft and light on your skin. It has an SPF 15 and comes in 6 shades. For me the Baby Doll Bisque is the perfect shade.
It is oil free, hypoallergenic and for made for all skin types.
I also want to point out that the packaging is very convenient. It’s a squeeze tube that allows you to really use all the foundation up. It also would be easy to throw in a purse or travel with , since it is not glass, you don’t have to worry about it breaking open.
I am also really loving the Maybelline Baby Lips in Fruit Punch!!! I have written about the baby lips before , which are only $2.99 in your local drugstore or Target, but the fruit punch one is amazing. Right now, baby pink lips are really in!! At the Grammy’s there were so many celebrities in a light soft baby pink lip color.
This lip product gives pretty good color for only $2.99 , plus it is working to protect and hydrate your lips!
Talk to you all soon.Have a wonderful day everyone!!

It’s my 25th Birthday today!! February 17th.
I feel so fortunate to have such a wonderful family. A family who has always believed in every dream and every wish I have ever had. They have always supported me through the crazy ups and downs that life takes. I am very happy to be surrounded by amazing people and married to my best friend.
In my 25 years, I feel lucky to have gained strength and maturity while living in New York City for 3 years, spending half a year in Vancouver, BC as a newlywed, and traveling to Kenya on a mission trip last year. I want to see more, do more and most of all just try to enjoy each day one by one.
I have gained large amounts of courage and learned a lot in the past year. I am happy to say that I am now proud owner of my own company Lovelo Beauty LLC. I am so grateful to all of you that have been supporting my beauty endeavors, and creative ventures over the years and I ask this one thing of you today on my birthday…
