Ev turns 40!



The end of an era, yet the beginning of a totally new chapter: I finally turned 40 today! That's four decades of trials and tribulations, and although I still don't show signs of any aging (truly surgery and procedure free....NEVER any Botox either), I definitely have the scars to last me four lifetimes. I embrace them as they  only made me all the more fiery, fierce, focused and full of life!


So what are my skincare secrets? Genetics is clearly one (dad had no wrinkles at 62 when he passed away), and it's no secret that I sleep like a bear - nine to 11 hours a night - and drink about two gallons of water. Product-wise, I've used Noxzema Classic ever since I was ten years old (yep, 30 years strong), coupled with Dove Beauty Bar. I may use an arsenal of beauty products, but these two are my go-to for flawless skin. Plenty of smiles hasn't broken my face or faith. If anything, it gives me a more youthful glow. Here's the next 40! 💋

Bandelettes Thigh Bands


Listen up ladies, if your thighs rub (big or small, thigh chafing is a real problem, unless you have a thigh gap, which in that case I offer you my condolences: Why?, Google it: team "tight and right!"), allow me to introduce to you my favorite fashion accessory, especially when wearing maxi or summer dresses: Bandelettes Thigh Bands. What are they? The anti-chafing stretching bands with silicone backing, that wraps around the tights and end skin to skin rubbing. Available in lace or solid bands, from size 2 to 24 in an array of colors ($14.99 - $15.99). If you play sports - think tennis shorts - then the solid bands are perfect for you! 


I attended an event with the brand two weeks ago where I was measured, given a size B Bandelette band (in Black Onyx and Dolce Beige), and even had the chance to chat with and meet Project Runway season 14 winner Ashley Nell Tipton. I'm telling you that after wearing short tights under all my maxis for years, I will never go back. I believe in Bandelettes. True Tip: you should NOT apply lotions prior to putting them on (don't do it). Otherwise they will slip and slide, totally defeating the purpose of the silicone bands. My second day wearing my Bandelettes - lotion-free - they stood up and on for 12+ hours, no complaints here. 


I love Bandelettes because aside from staying put all day long, they protect my thighs from chafing, are super comfortable and they may even come in handy for some sexy play (so I've heard, lol.) Get yours now, by visiting www.Bandelettes.com

It's a 10 Haircare


When it comes to my hair, I've learned that a great leave-in is crucial, and despite the many leave-in products I own, only one is the absolute "main for my mane." It's a 10 Miracle Leave-in, perfect for maintaining a strong, shiny mane. I love it because if doesn't require commitment, zero expensive monthly hair appointments and my curls feel silky smooth. You can imagine my joy when the brand sent me their Silk Express Miracle Leave-in (10 oz. $43.26), Miracle Defrizzing Gel (5 oz. $17.48) and Miracle Repair Hair Mask (8 oz., $38.10). My curls looked and felt absolutely amazing all day long.👍
