Summertime Shine #LuminousSkin

I’m switching up my look and enjoying more skin bearing outfits. Last week I remixed one of my favorite skirts for Saturday lunch with Robert.

 I bought this shirt for $6 Here and this skirt for $73 Here

I’ve also been trying different moisturizers to make sure I don’t get a “lizard legs” situation.

Lizard legs = when your shins get really dry.

For me, creamy lotions work well, but when I jump out of the shower, I like to let my skin absorb that water with a with an oil or gel moisturizer. This week I’ve been testing out Jergens Shea Beauty Oil, which is supposed to give skin six times more radiance, sheen and hydration. I like it because its an oil that doesn’t make me look/feel greasy and my skin feels moisturized through the day, so I’m not looking down in the middle of the day and seeing ashy legs!

The oil comes in a bottle that pumps. I’ve spilled baby oil before, so this is a good thing for me. A few pumps of the oil goes a long way and it absorbs really quickly. You can find this Shea Beauty Oil in grocery and drug stores in your area for $9.99. For more info about Jergens

Dating & Van Gogh Vodka with Perez Hilton & Patti Stanger

One of the first lessons I learned when moving to NYC is that you don’t gush over celebs when you see them, so I kept my composure when I walked into Toshi’s livingroom and saw Perez Hilton and Patti from Millionaire Matchmaker. Dating is one of my favorite subjects and I loved sitting back and listening to them dish about dating and go over the results of the Singles in America study. Some interesting things I learned from the event are:

1.) Women like to text during the day/at work, men don’t

2.) The issues/red flags you see by date three will not go away as the relationship progresses

3.) Men tend to imagine a future with their date faster than women d0

Now that I have a proper camera, I can take you guys with me to events like this:

I think the vodka cocktails definitely freed people up to ask questions and air their dating dirty laundry which made for a hilarious afternoon. The giftbags from this event included bottles of Van Gogh Vodka and a cocktail recipe book. I’m not going to lie, I tested alllllll the cocktails. Now that I have a couple of bottles at home, the recipe I’ll probably try tonight is the “My Honey Valentine”

My Honey Valentine

1-1/2 oz. Van Gogh Pomegranate Vodka

3/4 oz. pomegranate juice

1/2 oz. fresh lemon juice

1/4 oz. honey syrup (equal parts honey and hot water stirred until the honey dissolves)

Shake ingredients very well with ice and strain into martini glass or over ice into a rocks glass. Garnish with a lime wheel.
