A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting the beautiful Sara Goldfine who is the owner and creator of SBG Designs. SBG Designs is stunning fashion jewelry line that has been seen worn on many celebrities and in fashion magazines.
I am a huge jewelry lover and Sara’s designs immediately captured my attention because they are unique and captivatingly beautiful! She uses vintage stones in many designs, and creates one of a kind pieces for each season. You can find SBG designs at specialty boutiques throughout the country and on the website www.sbgdesigns.com .
I got to model a few of her designs in some photos I had taken with Nina Francine Photography. Here are a few of the photos below.
Go check out the jewelry on the SBG Designs website, and photography by Nina Francine. Both women are both extremely talented and beautiful!

I have been using a new powder I discovered recently called the, Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder. I have one word for this powder; perfect.
So, maybe you have heard about highlighting and contouring in makeup. Highlighting brings something out, makes it pop, or makes it glow. I have used dozens of highlighting powders and I honestly haven’t found one I don’t like. Anything that will make my skin have that youthful glow is awesome in my book. But, if you’re unsure of what highlighter to get, and you want to make sure you get one that isn’t TOO much for you…a good starting place is the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder..it’s perfect.
This product comes in 6 different shades and retails for $45. It’s definitely a pricy product, but honestly…you will use it everyday and love the way your skin looks with it on. My favorite shade for my skintone is “diffused light”. It is a soft, warm pale yellow highlighter, there are several darker shades and also one lighter.
I use mine only on the tops of my cheekbones and under my eyes to help brighten and illuminate my skin. They say that these make you look like you are in the perfect lighting-that is definitely true. They photograph beautiful and make my cheekbones pop when I use this!
What makes this different than other highlighters? You can’t overdo it with this product. It is super smooth and beautiful on the skin no matter how much is applied.
I picked up one of these NEW Baby Lips Dr Rescue Medicated Balm’s the other day totally on a whim. My lips were dry and chapped and just the name alone , DR RESCUE made me say, “for $2.99″ I need to try that. Well, I can tell you it was one of the best $2.99 I ever spent!
These new medicated lip balms by Maybelline have Menthol in them to quicky soothe , comfort and hydrate your lips. They come in a variety of tinted colors.
I ended up going back to Walgreens and picking up two other shades. My favorites so far are the colors Berry Soft which is a light plum/pink color and Soothing Sorbet which is a light/medium pink. They provide the perfect amount of sheer tint to your lips and hydrate and soothe as well.
For the past week I have used nothing but these Baby Lips medicated balms and my lips are completely healed from the dryness I was experiencing.
Look for them in Ulta stores and Walgreens!
