First Step: Toning the skin with Sunday Riley’s ‘Martian Mattifying Melting Water Gel Toner‘ to prep the skin and to keep the dewy look in the right places which are the high points of the face not the T-Zone.
Second Step: Sunday Riley’s ‘Good Genes‘. This step is amazing because it contains a lactic acid that gently helps exfoliate any dead skin and also consists of a pearl finish, which is crucial for that glow we all want.
Third Step: Sunday Riley’s ‘UFO Oil‘ for an additional glow and continued hydration. Not only does this oil help treat active breakouts but it also helps reduce pore sizes because of the salicylic acid and tea tree oil. It also balances any dryness with it’s milk thistle and cucumber ingredients.
Fourth Step: A few blemish/under eye touch ups with Nars ‘Vanilla Radiant Concealer‘. This concealer provides the perfect amount of coverage avoiding that caked on look that most concealers do.
Fifth Step: Glossier’s ‘Boy Brow‘ brow gel in brown. I have tried many brow pencils and gels, and this one is perfect giving you that natural brow look.
Sixth Step: Alexa used the Vapor Halo ‘Illuminator‘ on the high points of my cheeks, corner of the eyes, and nose to really finalize that dewy fresh face.
Final Step: Dinoplatz ‘Peach Melba Lipbalm‘ for that hydrated, and slightly tinted lip.
Second Look: Transitioning into a toned down evening look.
Step 1: Repeat Sunday Riley’s ‘Good Genes‘ adding luminosity and hydration.
Step 2: Tom Ford ‘Shade & Illuminate‘ this is the most fool proof sculptor the texture is so sheer that you can build up from a light chisel to a full contour.
Step 3: Charlotte Tilbury ‘Blush in Ecstasy‘ an extra glow.
Step 4: Charlotte Tilbury ‘Cara D‘ Brow Definition. This pencil is wonderful because it defines the brow without hiding the hairs to give you depth.
Step 5: Eyes that glitter provided by Lemonhead’s, ‘Adult Film’. This glitter is vegan and made with coconut oil unlike most harsh glitters that irritate the skin. This glitter looks so fresh, and is great because it’s translucent yet adds iridescence to the eyes.
Step 6: Dinoplatz ‘Escalator Mascara‘ this jet black mascara, thickens up the lashes extremely quickly and provides full volume!
Final Step: Charlotte Tilbury’s Matte Revolution Lipstick ‘Birkin Brown‘, Alexa chose brown for my lip to add a classic contrast to the fun glitter eye, and also a unique alternative color for Fall.
I can now officially check off my list that I swam with pigs!
What a crazy experience that was!! Thank you Exuma Water Sports for the fantastic adventure you took me on. These pigs are living the life on one of the beautiful islands located in the Bahamas. They get to roam the island, eat regular meals, and work on their beautiful piggy tans. It’s so refreshing to see these beings living cruelty free, and getting all the love in the World from the Tourists that come to the Bahamas.
I’m so thrilled to see that they are not living in captivity!
I arrived at the Grand Isle Resort and Spa, a few days ago, and it has forced me to do absolutely nothing, except chill and indulge in the aqua waters.
This “Oceanside” romper by Knot Sisters could not be better suited for this vacation. It’s the most perfect, relaxed, and laid back look to become a “Bahama Mama” out here.

I don’t know about you but I find most of my inspiration from nature as well as architecture.
I have never been to India but I am really itching for a bright, bold and beautiful excursion there, one day, in the nearest future.
It really seems like such a sacred, holy place to visit. The energy seems as vibrant as it’s majestic scenery, not to mention I definitely love the taste of Indian food. I’m going to start pinning away, and really taking notes and tips on where to visit in India.
Please do reach out if you’ve been, and share with me your favorite places to explore in this incredible Country!
