Hair: For those days when I want to rock my natural curl, I use Mixed Chicks Leave-In Conditioner . It’s curl defining and moisturizes just enough to leave my curls bouncing throughout the day.

Makeup: An absolute MUST in my make-up bag: Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner. The eyes say it all!

Skin care: For years I’ve struggled with acne & blemishes. From prescription products to home remedies, I’ve tried them all! My skin care regimen now works from the inside out. What I put in my body is just as important as what I put on my skin. (I have) hot water with lemon every morning and NO diary. To cleanse my skin I use Ambi Exfoliating Face Wash.

Nails: Nail polish for me is just as much of an accessory as a purse or a pair of earrings. If my nails aren’t painted, I just feel like I’m missing something. The color of my nails often reflects my mood and can be bright & bold one week and neutral the next. I’ll rock any brand lacquer as long as it is ‘3 free’ – free of toluene, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and formaldehyde!

Fragrance: Subtle yet alluring, soft & sweet, Chloe is my absolute favorite fragrance.

Beauty Indulgence: It is an absolute must for my monthly mani & pedi.
