Sarah McNamara Skin Miracle

First & foremost don't forget to enter my Jazzybox Giveaway!

From Bremenn Research Lab's Hylexin, to numerous concealers & nasal sprays I have tried everything in an attempt to camouflage these beautiful raccoon circles I was blessed with at very young age (allergies are NOT my friend). Some products show slim results, or just cost an arm and a leg or I don't want to rebuy because it's claim to fame was false.  When I saw this FAB giveaway, I had to give it a shot.

Special THANK YOU, to GoodBadAndFab for an awesome giveaway.

Here is what I won:

Sarah McNamara Miracle Skin Transformer Treat & Conceal, Eye & Face ($36)
Sarah McNamara Miracle Skin Transformer with 20spf ($48)

The Skin Transformer & What it is formulated to do:

In one easy step, this product hydrates, protects, and transforms the complexion for a luminous, airbrushed effect. Formulated with naturally derived silicone, it minimizes the appearance of fine lines and pores instantly. Antiaging properties reduce uneven pigmentation over time while sunscreen ingredients provide protection from a broad spectrum of UVA/UVB rays.

What else you need to know:
The M3 Complex, a unique combination of natural antioxidants and vitamins, hydrates, enhances, and protects the skin. The product's unique delivery system encapsulates enzyme Q10 and vitamins A, K, and E into tiny beads that burst on contact with your skin, improving cellular renewal, skin firmness, and circulation.
Here is the color of the Skin Transformer in Medium.
You can look on Sephora to see all the different shades.
Miracle Skin™ Transformer Treat & Conceal Eye & Face

What it is:
A tinted serum that conceals skin imperfections while treating acne, redness, and aging concerns.

What it is formulated to do:
This product both conceals and treats skin to create a flawless, airbrushed effect. Its concealing properties transform the appearance of skin, covering dark circles, blemishes, and other imperfections with a matte tinted effect. The appearance of fine lines, pigmentation spots, areas of surface redness, and scarring are diminished immediately. Its treatment properties address many skin concerns, including aging, acne, redness, and irritation.

What else you need to know:
This product contains plant-derived collagen and vitamin F help minimize signs of aging and improve skin's resilience and tone. Salicylic acid helps treat blemishes without drying the skin. Powerful vitamin K treats vascular conditions like dark circles and broken capillaries. White rose and chamomile extracts act as natural skin-calming agents with anti-inflammatory properties. The addition of ceramides keeps your skin smooth and glowing.

So what are you new favorite products? Have you tried Miracle Skin? If so, what are your thoughts?
I'll be sure to review this product in the future as well.

Mid-Week HOORAH!

Glory By JayZ a song for Blue Ivy

Beautiful song written for his first born baby girl. Makes you happy for the couple!

A New Year, A New Day

So typically this time of the year, we are trying to stick to our "resolutions" that
will be soon forgot probably by February 2nd.... Well at least that's how I roll! LOL
This year I didn't entertain the thought of a resolution.
I'm just trying to evolve even more as a person, with out losing who I truly am.
Daily, I read more and more and am constantly hungry for knowledge.
With that being said, I wish you a VERY PROSPEROUS year, with
An abundance of whatever it is that you truly desire.


When I think of Belmont Shore, located in Long Beach also known as "The Shore", I always think of my Uncle Billy. He used to live in the 'hood' part of LB, but would always tell everyone he stayed in 'Belmont Shore'. One of his many funny antics that he left behind that I'll always remember.

2nd Street in Belmont Shore, is nestled along the coast in a charming beach side community with over 250 businesses. The surrounding neighborhood is hugged by beautiful Spanish Style homes from the 1920's and 30's. After a delightful lunch, we had to take an extra stroll through the surrounding streets, to take a quick peak.

We stumbled upon this alluring little Bohemian Cafe that had a cute little patio adorned with smiley faces, champagne flutes & palatable dishes suitable for our little hearts desires.

Le Creperie Cafe Bohemian Bistro & Bar
4911 E. 2nd Street
Long Beach, CA

Not big on trying escargot for the first time, we went for a more common French dish for our appetizer.

Crepe Vendome
Two savory crepes filled with chicken, melted brie cheese, apples, caramelized onions, topped with mango chutney & sour cream.

I decided to go lite for my main dish & ordered a salad with fish.

Salmon Salad Nicoise
Fresh pan seared salmon, baby greens, haricot verts, red onions, eggs, potatoes, kalamata olives and anchovies dressed in a Dijon vinaigrette

Coupled with mango & peach mimosas, joined by a toast to another blessed year.
My salad was good, but the next time I go I will definitely get the Al Mare.
The lobster basil sauce was heavenly!!!

Al Mare
Jumbo shrimp, sun-dried & plum tomatoes, wild mushrooms, shallots & mozzarella cheese in a lobster basil cream sauce

Wishing all my Jazzy readers a FAB New Year.
Stay Tuned because I have a Giveaway coming later today!

Much Love in 2012,
