Hello from cold Chicago! A few months back I had the pleasure of chatting with one of my favorite women, Susan Yara. Susan has had a very exciting career working as a beauty host for some major companies. (She was actually the first beauty host I watched and subsequently met in person…and then stalked obsessively over the years…) Her most exciting new venture is the launch of her new company/YouTube channel called Mixed Makeup. You NEED to check it out. The quality and content is perfection AND she has big names like Catt Sadler with segments on her channel. I was so flattered when she asked little old me to share some tips on how to grow your youtube channel. We had a blast filming the fun and informative video below. Enjoy!
On the most recent episode of Mommy and Me the ladies and I do a baby product haul where we share our number one must have for the month. For me it was the wubbanubb, aka a pacifier with an animal on it. I love that lil Reesey can hold onto the animal while he’s soothing himself with his paci. He actually snuggles with it now too, which melts my heart, basically I can NOT leave home without it. Watch the episode below to see what the other mama’s are loving. Happy Friday!
Guess what? I have another easy fall makeup tutorial for you. Literally the day after labor day I said goodbye to pinky lips and hello to my fall colors. I love a strong lip and a neutral eye. I think it looks so polished and sexy. The look below is super easy to recreate and will look fabulous on any skin color. Happy Fall Beauties!
Get the look!
I’m thrilled that I can add detective to my resume. In my latest adventure I’m a K.I.D (Kid Interrogation Detective) aka Detective Sharzad. It’s not an easy job but this new mama is trying to find out what kids love by interrogating them. Enjoy!

Hello and happy Friday beauties! Here is my latest face of the day. I have a smokey bronze eye makeup tutorial below along with all the products I used to create the look. It’s easy, and will look good on any skin tone. Go out there and try it this weekend. Cheerio!
This past Saturday I headed to San Diego to film an easy, quick mom and baby workout with two of my besties. IFBB Figure Pro Victoria Adelus, (aka one of my besties) demonstrated how to workout our upper body with three easy moves, the best part it, we use our babies as weights! In the video you will notice I’m wearing some awesome yoga pants, well they are from YogaOutlet.com. YogaOutlet.com is offering my readers 15% off their first purchase, just use the code “bridgepose” when checking out. There are tons of great deals on the site. Enjoy the video below.
I truly can’t believe it’s been three years since I started my online journey! When I began my blog my makeup career was in a transitional place and I knew I no longer wanted to do it professionally. I longed for something more exciting….but I wasn’t sure what or how or when. In high school I wanted to host a show (specifically one like Wild on E!) and somehow along the way that dream seemed like it would never come to fruition. Doing makeup allowed me to be part of the exciting world of entertainment without really putting myself out there… but it wasn’t my true passion. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the beauty industry, but I wanted to be on camera! It took me a really long time to admit that to myself.
I am so thankful EVERYDAY that I started chasing my dreams when I did. I can’t imagine not doing what I do. It’s opened up doors and opportunities I truly only dreamed about. I’m not trying to toot my own horn, I’m trying to encourage people to go after what they want. There is a saying in farsi “Whenever you get the fish out of the water, it’s fresh” basically to me that means that no matter where you are in your life, it’s not to late to start something new and go after what you want.
I love my job and have worked harder than ever. I have no clue where I will be next year or in five years and that’s what is so exciting about what I do. There are endless possibilities and the sky truly is the limit.
I want to take a minute to say a sincere THANK YOU to everyone who has followed my online journey with me. Without your support I wouldn’t be able to do what I do.
Last thing before I end my rant- I am giving away ONE ticket to come hear me speak on October 7th in LA with a ton of other major movers and shakers online. To qualify, just send me an email telling me what your dream job is and why you want the ticket. It’s that simple. I will pick a winner by Friday!

*Must be able to get to Los Angeles! I can’t fly anyone in yet… sorry! One day!
Last night I was invited to a press preview dinner at The NICE GUY LA, which officially opens to the public today. Woohoo! This sexy new spot has a total modern 60’s vibe… I know that sounds like it wouldn’t make sense, but just trust me on it. It’s the newest spot from the H.Wood group, who also own Bootsy Bellows and Shore Bar to name a few. The NICE GUY, located on La Cienega in the center of West Hollywood, serves up fantastic food like pizza topped with figs, caramelized onions, gorgonzola and thyme. In addition to their killer food they have TONS of specialty cocktails and live music on most nights. It’s reservation only, even for the bar (which I love) so it won’t ever feel packed or too crowded. Enjoy the photos below and make a ressie ASAP for a ritzy night out.
Get my look!

After a recent selfie many of you asked about my makeup so I figured I would share my “Face of the day” and what I used to create it. Today’s look is all about summery golden bronze. I want my eyes to stand out so I used a bold copper shade on my lid followed by a pop of gold right in the center. I rimmed under my eyes with one of my all time favorite liners, Golden Bronze from Nyx, applied several coats of my fav mascara (Voluminous #duh) and kept everything else pretty neutral. All the products are below and you can purchase them straight from my site! Yippee! Happy Thursday kitties. Meow.
