NO MATCHY, MATCHY! Tiff’s 5 Style Rules

Hey Sassy Pants,

Thanks to Real Housewives of Dallas and Twitter, we have several new style sistas in the sisterhood! Welcome to my hood! A few ladies have mentioned going back through the old blog posts and videos. It’s so fulfilling knowing that all the content I’ve shared over the past 5 years is still empowering women. Someone asked what my personal style rules and I thought “I must have a video for that” and voila, I sure do! Even though this was filmed in 2012, these rules still apply:

STYLE RULE #1:  Never leave the house without a little sparkle or bling around your face!

If I’m heading to a workout or running to the grocery store, I always add a diamond CZ stud earring.  This just adds a little life around your beautiful face! 

FOR MORE, WATCH THE WEBISODE:

Make sure to share this with your girlfriends!

Love + Lipgloss,

Tiff

TOP 5 KITCHEN ITEMS FOR EVERY SKIN TYPE By Guest Blogger- Asia DeMarcos aka BEAUTASIA

Hi Superhero’s in-training!

I’ve had a few clients text me today with skincare emergencies. One wanted a hydrating mask, the other had just burned herself. So I got to thinking. Why not blog about this to share with you. Here are my top 5 kitchen collaborators for every skin condition.

AVOCADO-hass

1. Avocados- Skin Types: Dry, dehydrated, red, inflamed or rosasea. I love having plenty of these on hand. They contain a rich natural oil that’s great to condition your skin and hair. It also contains niacin, which has been great for inflammation. Perfect for rosacea. Mash it up and put it on you face for 10-15 minutes. Rinse with luke warm water. Beautasia note: Rinse off in kitchen sink where there’s a garbage disposal. 

honey

2. Honey- Skin Types: Dry, dehydrated, Sun Damaged, Acne, Aging. This sweet tea compadre is also good for dry skin. It’s a humectant. Which means it will draw moisture into the skin. This amber colored delight is also an anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial and anti-microbial so its also perfect for aging and acneic skin types. Take 1 tablespoon of honey and apply to face. Leave on 15-20 minutes. Rinse with luke warm water.

3. LemonSkin Types: Oily, Acneic, Sun Damaged, Non Sensitive. This amazing liquid is a natural antiseptic and contains natural acids that will exfoliate the face.  These acids will also naturally brighten sun damaged skin. It can be a little drying, so don’t use it if you have super sensitive skin. The acid and antiseptic will also kill those zits! Apply directly from the fruit of squeeze in a bowl and apply with cotton ball or round leave on skin. Beautasia note: Best to sleep on face overnight.

4. Apple Cider VinegarSkin Types: Oily, Enlarged Pores, Acneic and burned skin. Apple cider vinegar or ACV as it’s known on the streets is great for balancing the body’s ph inside and out! Pour it on a burn and it will draw out the sting. Apply to acne or oily skin so the malic acids and lactic acids with gently exfoliate and kill bacteria. Apply directly on areas with cotton round.

organic-olive-oil

5. Olive Oil- Skin Types: Dry and Aging. This favorite cooking companion is a nice bath counterpart too. Add a few tablespoon in your bath and watch the dry scaly legs go bye bye. Olive oil is rich in anti-oxidants that will protect you skin from further environmental damage. Mix a little of this with avocado or honey for SUPER hydrating mask. Leave on face as a moisturizer or blot with paper towel. I personally love it as an eye makeup remover. Watch this video I made on how to properly remove it.

Try and mix some of these ingredients together for multiple skin issue. My all time favorites that make my skin soft and bright is 1/4 mashed avocado and 1 teaspoon honey. Please share some of your kitchen favorites in the comment section below. Happy mixing!

BE FAB FRIDAY: A Must Share Testimonial

Happy Friday Fierce Friends,

This is a beautiful message I had to share with you all from one of our sistas in Australia! When I receive messages like this, it always reaffirms that regardless of where we live, our age or profession- women face the same battle of “losing or giving up on themselves”. Sista, if this is you today, please make yourself a priority and be inspired by this story: 

I just wanted to send you a note to say THANK YOU!  We have never met but I feel as if you have given me some of the best advice I have had in years. For the last 10 years, I have been battling illness to which took over my body, my mind, my dreams and my sense of self. I did not realize how much it had taken from me until I was standing in a fitting room unable to pull on a size 20 jeans, size 20!! I was lost and didn’t know what to do.

It was a rainy day, I came home crawled onto the couch with my packet of chocolate biscuits and started watching YouTube. I came across your channel by accident and was hooked. I watched episode after episode. You were different to the other girls, not out there to show off your designer bags, makeup and labels or how to put on eye shadow a 100 different ways. You had substance! You teach women how to love ourselves, respect our bodies and be the best we can be. Thank you!

I am a wedding photographer who had a very successful business however it was failing badly and I couldn’t work out why. I was looking at my competition and could not figure out why they were getting the work over myself. I was well priced, qualified and producing the highest quality. Then, I watched your closest organization episode. It hit me like a brick when you said our wardrobes should be a creative space, a place of expression. I looked at my clothing and I cringe as I tell you this, I was wearing a cardigan that was coming away at the collar, wide legged mid wash jeans and black flats. I was no longer coloring or styling my hair and had given up on wearing makeup. It was in that moment I realized I had given up on myself and if this is how I present myself to the world why would I expect a couple to trust me creatively with the most important photos of their life. It was me telling clients not to invest in me by the way I was presenting myself without even knowing.

I went to my wardrobe and pulled everything onto the bed. Piece by piece I worked out what made me the best version of me and got rid of everything else. I made my health a priority and gave my body the right food. I am now loosing the weight and have a new confidence in myself and slowly but surely I am finding the real me again. My relationships have improved particularly with my husband and I find that people treat me with more respect and kindness because I value myself. Again thank you, keep up the great work, you are making a wonderful difference to people’s lives without even knowing.

With love,

Miss Never Looking Back

BE FAB FRIDAY! It’s All About The F’s {New Webisode}

Tiff_Fall_closet

HAPPY FRIDAY FASHIONISTAS! 

I know what you are all thinking…“It’s about time Tiff!”  All good things come to those who wait.. patiently! LOL.  Trust me, I have missed making videos as much as you have missed seeing them. BUT, it’s been for good reason! Not only has my husband (cameraman) been traveling and crazy busy working on his own amazing projects, I have been focused on becoming a long-distant surrogate mama to a remarkable young woman, plus I’ve been working more with private clients. It’s been an art to keeping it all running smoothly and not to get spread too thin. I’ve been taking my own advice and taking regular “me” time!  That being said, the hard work is paying off and my SOS webseries (my baby) has officially become a toddler and TURNED 3 this month! {{{HAPPY DANCE}}} 

I feel like rambling so bear with me…

I’ve been reminiscing about this journey and wanted to encourage any of you who have the dream of starting a business out of a passion. Perhaps you have a message and want to share your voice with the world on a blog, but you are afraid. PLEASE start today! Whatever your passion or message is.. someone in the world needs it and we are all here to help the world in some way or another. Trust me, I was shakin’ in my wedge sandals when I posted my first rinky dink blog. It was about my fave mascara, Voluminous by Loreal. I crack up when I think of it now because I had soooooo much more in my spirit to share than just makeup tips. I still have much more to share! Look how fast 3 years has gone by. Don’t wait another day. I made a business plan, wrote a mission statement and just DID IT! Have I wanted to quit? A million times. What fuels me is YOU…..and the many women all over the world who may need a simple style tip or something deeper that reconnects them to Spirit. All of it is extremely important to me. Have I made mistakes? Heck yea! Ya dust yourself off and keep on keepin’ on. What is inside you that needs to be birthed? Every day that goes by, think of all the people missing out on your gifts.

Ok, back to FASHION! In the latest webisode, I share a handful of styles I think we can all incorporate into our Fall wardrobe without breaking the budget. Check it out:

 

 

Here’s a list of the items in the webisode. For under $200, I added these fresh new items from places like H & M, Forever 21,  Nordstrom Rack, Marshall’s + TJ Maxx. All other items are from my closet:
