Feeling festive! Back in LA for a minute and love coming home to this @birchandbone wreath 🎄❤️
Today’s set up for mini @luzernlabs eye treatments at @canyonranch Las Vegas! Our new Nuit Collection is front and center. If you haven’t tried it yet, you really need to! I’m in love with EVERY single product from this collection ❤️
CYBER MONDAY DEAL ALERT!!!!
Use code ORGANIC to get a FREE @carterandjane body oil (totally obsessed! This stuff is amazing) when you purchase a 30ml Everything Oil 🙌🏻 (a $52 value!) Just add both items to your cart and enter the code 👍🏻
By now you all know this is one of my all time favorite facial oils. Prickly Pear Seed Oil is great for all skin types with all skin concerns. It’s a little miracle in a bottle. Their new body oil is equally amazing! And with a blend of organic sweet orange + neroli + bergamot + ylang ylang + frankincense, it smells heavenly! 😻
Today I am thankful for so very much - my friends and family, the people I love, my career and the use of my hands...
As some of you know, my hands have been through a lot the past few years. I developed a repetitive motion injury (cubital tunnel syndrome and Thoracic Outlet Syndrome) while working at a very high volume luxury spa, which left me without the use of my hands for nearly two years. And while physical therapy and surgery were helpful, they didn’t fix me and I was still in constant pain.
Enter Rena Haley @aneedleaday , an acupuncturist at Lotus Center for Integrative Medicine @lotus_center , a magical healer (and by magic I mean incredibly knowledgeable practitioner, she also teaches acupuncture) and most inspiring and lovely human being. I’ve been seeing Rena for most of this year and I’m amazed at what I’m now able to do.
Last week I did 13 facials and nearly 20 oxygen infusions 😳 I had thought my esthetics career was over and now I feel like it’s only just begun. The gratitude I have for her and what she does knows no ends.
Now that I’m traveling so much I also get treated for a myriad of other things, including immunity and something I like to call “party voice” (the result of talking 10 hrs a day multiple days in a row). Ultimately, acupuncture fixed me and is keeping me going. If there’s something you’re battling and you live in LA, I HIGHLY recommend going to see Rena!
A good skincare routine includes lots of options.
Our skin is constantly changing due to hormonal fluctuations, lifestyle and environmental stressors. Having various tools, to handle the different things your skin needs day to day, is the best way to step up your skincare routine.
This is a look at how @skinbytatum set up their @luzernlabs facial bar for our event last week. I walked clients through a thorough skincare routine and got to watch how they’d apply products at home. This glimpse into their home care routine allowed me to give customized tips and pointers to get the most out of what they’re already doing. Such a cool idea for an event and incredibly useful!
✨Post facial glow✨
This was after an 11 hour day, I look exhausted BUT my skin doesn’t! Thank you @skinbytatum for introducing me to @coolifting and giving me the prettiest glowy-est skin for the end of my trip! Everyone mentioned it ☺️ I think it’ll serve me well when I get back to smoky California.
Big thank you to #sailfishcountryclub #marisolcountryclub #skinbytatum #joycetomica and #canyonranchspa for making my trip to Florida beyond memorable!! Hope to see you all soon ❤️ ____________________________________________
PS... My @irisandwest set lasted me through Florida’s rain and humidity + copious amounts of @carterandjane oil. Fluffy lashes are always the best compliment to glowing skin! 😻
Sadly, this integral piece of identification didn’t originally make it with me to Florida. In a moment of panic and lots of tears, I realized this yesterday morning - one day before I needed it. With the help of @fedex Same Day (I really didn’t know this was a thing), the most AMAZING support back home in LA ❤️ and a really great courier, I had this bad boy in my hands by midnight this morning!! While a very expensive mistake, it’s a lesson learned and one I won’t make again anytime soon.
If I could, I’d be in this bed all day. Really enjoying my stay with @sonderstays They make traveling feel like home 💙
Stacks on stacks of Nuit!!! 😳🤗🙌🏻
If you’re in Miami, you have to stop by @skinbytatum Their facials are unlike anything I’ve ever experienced and the results are incredible!
I’m making a ridiculous face but in case you’re wondering about my new favorite lip color... it’s @rmsbeauty Rebound over @hourglasscosmetics Icon 💋 and my go to base is @luzernlabs BB mixed with a tiny bit of @janeiredale BB to bump up the coverage 👉🏻 makes for super glowy skin!
Sometimes all it takes is a few products to jumpstart your skin. I love this little selection and display from The Spa at Sailfish Point Country Club. I had the honor of training them earlier this week and am so excited for their members to start experiencing @luzernlabs facials!
____________________________________________ •Cleansing Creme and Hydrating Essence work together to gently but effectively cleanse the skin, balancing its pH and barrier function to prevent future irritation and dehydration. It’s the foundation all other products build from. •WE3 is an anti-wrinkle serum packed with clinically proven neurotransmitter peptides which actually interfere with your facial muscles ability to contract (I call this our Botox in a bottle), relaxing any furrows and smoothing out the skin. Simply spot treat any lines you’d like to address. It works wonders!! •V15 is a 15% L Ascorbic Acid Vitamin infusion. This incredibly potent evening (use this at nighttime only) Vitamin C serum helps to brighten skin by inhibiting the formation of melanin, firms it from the inside-out by increasing collagen production and protects the skin from free radical damage with a myriad of antioxidants!
I’m still dreaming about the new @qyksonic #zoeluxe and #zoeplus 💕 I’m pretty sure I absolutely NEED both!
Until I get my hands on them, here’s one more picture from last week’s launch party event #zoesquad
A little glimpse at the NEW @qyksonic Zoe Plus! Let’s just say, I’m very impressed!
Made with the highest grade of medical silicone, it now works with 9,000 sonic pulses per minute and, now heavier than the original, feels like a very substantial device. The bottom of the device allows for interchangeable attachments (LED coming soon!!) such as this amazing attachment I’m showing you here that can be used for facial massage (that means your Gua Sha stone is now in your Cleansing device). There are two sensors on the back of the device that will connect to an app on your phone and can be used to monitor your skin’s hydration on a day to day basis. Plus, Zoe’s charge now lasts for a whole year!
This is one of three new devices from @qyksonic . So very excited to show you all more as they come!
@travelgnome and I had the best time at last night’s @qyksonic launch party. I’m so excited for their THREE new ZOE’s! There’s now a mini baby Zoe, a Zoe Plus and a gorgeous Zoe Luxe! Pretty sure I need them all!
Hope you all had a fun Halloween!
——————————————————- I got a little crafty this year 🎃
Pretty excited about these new @aunaturalelife Lip Glosses and Stains! 💋The pigments are rich and the ingredients v clean!
Left to right: Tickled Pink Lip Gloss, Kauai su/Stain, Ultra Lip Gloss.
Thank you @aunaturalelife and @bmbshell_tx for sending me goodies!! Can’t wait to wear them! Kauai is such a fun vampy autumn color 🖤
Also, I’m loving this nail color... Blood Red vampiness! (Can you tell I have a theme going for October?) It’s P60 from #nailtotoerescue in Silverlake - my all time favorite nail spot! Have you been?
I left @canyonranch Tucson with a few new goodies... I’ve been wanting to try @hourglasscosmetics Opaque Rouge Liquid Lip for such a long time and when I saw the spa carried it (and @rmsbeauty 🙌🏻), it seemed it was meant to be. Icon is my new fall color! It’s a dark berry red that can be worn blotted as a stain or worn as a bold lip. It has major staying power and a velvety matte finish. In love! ❤️
Their Scattered Light eyeshadows are SO GORGEOUS too! It’s a glitter shadow with a cream to powder consistency that can be built up for more intensity. I started with Smoke but am fairly certain I’ll end up buying them all 😉
Twinning with @heckinp1ssed #nofilter
Here’s a peak into this week’s travel bag.
I love having travel sizes so I don’t have to pack the products I use daily at home. This bag lives in my suitcase and is ready at a moments notice.... because these days, I’m pretty jet set ✈️✈️✈️ ____________________________________________
Pro tip: don’t skimp on the skincare while you’re traveling! It’s easier to pack less but, during these times, your skin needs more due to changing climates, lack of sleep and dehydration. 👍🏻
New cut 💇🏻♀️ Same but different.
Thank you @corey.k.churchill for the color and @ritamariejohnson for my sleek #bluntbob 💕

I desperately wanted to slap a filter on this. ( @bellthroughthenight I think of you every time I want to do this) But instead you guys get the real me, tired eyes and all.
Maybe @vanessalee_rn can help me look a little more rested in the future 😝
