Sangria Sundays with [Yellow Tail] Wine – Simply Delicious

What better way to celebrate the new season than with a bottle of [Yellow Tail] Sangria.  Because it’s officially Spring, we can (now) say cheers to the warm sun by partaking in Sangria Sundays. The concept behind Sangria Sundays is for everyone to slow down, relax, and have a great glass of wine

I was super excited to receive my [Yellow Tail] Sangria package in the mail (by surprise) and eager to partake in a glass of wine. Aside from receiving a bottle of wine, the company also sent an official Yellow Tail candle, Sangria nail polish/decals, and a really cool booklet.


To make the experience worth while I chopped up a few apples and strawberries to put in my glass.  I also did a little “research” and found some delicious goodies to eat.

Overall, the [Yellow Tail] Sangria was delicious and I thoroughly enjoyed partaking in Sangria Sundays!  I’m looking forward to hosting a Girls Night In with a tasty glass of Sangria.

Joey Healy via “Veria Living Live” Mastering the Perfect Brow


Earlier this week on Veria Living Live (on the Veria Living TV Network) – a triple threat in the beauty industry, Joey Healy, made a special guest appearance to teach viewers how to master the art of the eyebrow in a special “Ask the Expert” segment. Lucky for you, we snagged his expert tips for you to share with your readers.

Joey Healy is a prominent eyebrow stylist, professional makeup artist and licensed esthetician. With a unique approach to creating the perfect brow, Joey’s methods are second to none. Utilizing his talents, Joey has become a favorite among celebrities and companies including Kyra Sedgwick, Aviva Drescher and Carole Radziwill of The Real Housewives of New York, Andy Cohen of Watch What Happens Live, Sean Young of Blade Runner, the New York City Ballet, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bravo!, Neiman Marcus, Dress for Success, MTV and many more.





Many women have flat eyebrows, which shorten their face. The goal is to elongate the face.

To do this, use your brow brush to hold against the bridge of your nose – this is where your eyebrow should start (also where you should start enhancing your brow with brow powder). Put your brow pencil diagonal towards your outer eye – this is the bare minimum of where your eyebrow should end. You should create an arch 2/3 of the way out.



You can use a brow powder or brow pencil for fixing gaps in the eyebrow.

TIP: Use a light hand, not a heavy hand, and color IN vs. OUT

TIP: NEVER WAX! Tweezing gives you better detail and less room for error



Joey’s “high rise” spotlight highlighter will take 10 years off your face. To use: Highlight the brow bone to give you a youthful radiance. Apply just below the arch of your brow for an instant eye-lift.

•TIP: highlighter can also be used under the eyes to camouflage dark shadows.

Angela Simmons: Photo of The Day


Style + Life + Fashion’s Photo of The Day goes to Angela Simmons. She’s “servin and werkin” wearing a cream suit (matching top, jacket, and skirt) while giving us a pop of color with purple pumps.

Angela has great style and in my opinion this was a very nice street photo. This “Simmons” girl likes to keep us on toes and guess what, it works!


Free Country Jackets for Spring and Fox 45 Morning News Segment

On Monday morning I had the opportunity to visit Fox 45 News, showing residents in the Maryland area jackets from FreeCountry.com

Free Country jackets are sporty and stylish but most importantly serve functional features such as being rain and water resistant. In addition, the windbreakers have a pouch that can hold a mobile device.  I enjoyed hosting this segment because I was able to wear the jacket and also have a little fun with the morning reporter Megan Gilliland.

Sienna Naturals Baobab Oil Moisturizing Collection Launch

Sienna Naturals 1

Winter was long but Spring is finally in the air! The seasons may be in transition, but that doesn’t mean your hair should be just as unpredictable. This Spring and Summer, let your hair down and flash your stems!  Allow me to introduce the Baobab Oil Moisturizing Collection from Sienna Naturals.

Sienna NaturalsMy name is Hannah and I am the founder of Sienna Naturals. I was raised in a multi-racial family that valued natural foods and natural living. However, when it came to my beauty regimen, I struggled to find natural products that met the needs of my hair and seasonally dry skin. My hair became a source of anxiety rather than a source of confidence. Despite the abundance of options in our beauty stores today, finding high quality natural products continues to be a challenge. The demand is there, so where are the products?

Enter Sienna Naturals. Our mission is to create highly effective natural products designed to improve the condition of your hair and skin while you use them. We source the globe for active ingredients that deliver trustworthy performance for all women.

Sienna Naturals

It all begins with the Baobab tree (Bah-oh-Bab or Bey-oh-Bab), the source of a key ingredient in our new moisturizing collection. Our Baobab Oil is derived from the oil rich seeds of the Baobab fruit, and we source it fair trade from Senegal, West Africa. Baobab oil helps repair skin damage, wrinkles from aging, and significantly improves skin elasticity, a treatment I’ve used during my own pregnancy to prevent stretch marks. At Sienna Naturals, Baobab oil is paired with nature’s most illustrious elements to leave your skin and hair feeling fresh and hydrated throughout the year.


Sienna Naturals never uses harsh chemicals such as fragrance, parabens, or harsh sulfates (SLS and SLES). Petroleum, mineral oil, silicones, or other “filler” ingredients are not in our repertoire.  You can also find more information about our products on our website: www.siennanaturals.com and vendor profiles at Birchbox and Amazon.
