Some Favs

I've really been into body products lately, especially bath scrubs and salts.  I think as I age,
I worry much more about my overall skin feeling soft and looking supple! I've always
taken good care of it, but I find that it needs a little more pampering since I had baby glam!

I've really been loving Orly's Polynesian Hot Lava Hand Mask.  I use it while I'm in the bath and 
it feels so amazing! The heat and silky feeling it leaves I can't resist!

Palmer's Organics Cocoa Butter lotion smells like heaven.  I started using it while I was pregnant 
and I just love it so I never stopped! I never got stretch marks either! Genetics or not, this stuff works!

Another great organic product it OrganicSkincare Doctor Virgin Olive Oil Face Scrub and Body Scrub. I use both up to
4 times a week to keep my skin feeling fresh and renewed. Plus they are packed with
so many goodies it's a must have.

I've only been using this Physicians Formula CC+ Cream for a few weeks, but I am in love with it!
I will do a review soon.  I like it better than their BB cream by far.  It has sunscreen, moisturizer, etc. and a great coverage!


NYC Sparkle Eye Dust is amaze!! And thrifty! It has a little sponge applicator and it takes a second
to apply to your eyes for an instant pretty eye look. It's very pigmented and doesn't crease for me.  Perfect for a morning quick routine or glam moms on the go!

Wet n' Wild Megaslicks Balm Stain
Another amazing product for around $2! These are a dupe for Tarte Balms and even Revlon balms.
I love the selection of colors, the glossy feel and lasting power they have. Great buy!


Caudalie Hand and Nail Creme. I found this at Sephora and I keep it beside my bed to slather on right
before I go to sleep. I love it's light scent and anti-aging properties.


It's a 10 Miracle Leave-in Plus Keratin
I cannot live without this! I have seen a huge transformation in my hair since
I started using this. After I wash my hair I apply and it does some major magic.  I think Target usually carries this brand.  

Infusium Miracle Therapy with Moringa Oil
I'm noticing a trend here! Miracles are needed on my hair! 
I love this treatment, easy to spray on my hair and I usually pop it up into a bun on these days. Repairs
any damage I have, especially for me with all the coloring I do! Love!


Lastly, The Naked3 palette
I just love it! The colors are so, so pretty and pigmented! It's perfect for travel and pretty 
much any look you might wear. It is a little on the shimmery side with the colors, but I don't mind. 
 It's been my go to palette for spring so far. 
Those are my current favorites! Please tag me with your favs posts!!

Mini Bar and New Wall Color


I am in love with this paint color in my dinning area! My home is inspired by the
beach, so most of the colors on my walls are variations of that atmosphere. Before, 
the walls were a sandy color and I didn't like the way the paint looked on the walls once it 
was up.  So I went with this color and I am so happy I did! We've got clouds
this week in LA so the lighting is a little off, excusie!  The color is Caribbean Green by Behr and
I found it at Home Depot.  I chose a Semi-gloss and it really made everything pop in the room.


I made a little mini bar in one corner with a fab table I already had.
I've contemplated buying a mini bar cart, but I actually love this little
table and it adds to my beachy, but glam decor.  It fits just perfect in this corner, plus, I haven' t really seen a cart that I just can't live without yet. I do keep an eye out in my thrifting hunts though!





I Placed a cool little picnic basket under the table that I found for less than $5!
It just gives a little extra charm to the area.

Loving these Oh Joy for Target goblets that add a pretty pop of color!


Have you made a mini bar yet? Please share, I would love to see! xo - Taj

Coral Crush

(Top: Marshalls, Pants: H&M, Purse: Glameratti, Shoes: c/o Ami Club Wear)

I'm so excited it's Spring and time to wear bright pretty colors again! 
Living in Cali the weather is pretty much always nice and sunny, but I still feel like
I have to follow the seasons a little bit with colors! Crazy right! Just keeps things spicy for me!
Are you wearing your spring colors too? 



I'm obsessed with these coral shoes from Ami Club Wear! I want to wear them 
with everything! I love how they glam up any outfit! xoxo -Taj

Table Makeover


I finally got around to getting the finishing touches done on this
table that I found at the thrift store.  I believe it was $5! Yep, a super deal. But let 
me tell you, it was in way worse shape than this photo lets on! For one, it was
so dusty and grimy I had to sand it down twice! But I could see the potential of this little 
gem and just had to have it.  
At first I was going to paint it a bright color, but I decided that since my casa is pretty
colorful paint wise, I would keep it simple and chic with white. I absolutely love how it turned out
and it is a perfect little table in my living room in between two chairs (that I still need to re-upholster!! It's never ending!)  It's a a perfect little nook for tea or reading a book.

I gave this little guy a heavy duty wipe down and sanded twice.
I removed the tarnished, black handles and thought about
replacing them all together but, I just thought they had so much charm
so I tried several ways to clean them up from tarnish and grime.

I found this Brasso at Walmart and it was the only thing that worked. I read 
about vinegar and baking soda etc. online but none of that worked for me.
This was the simplest, quickest way to remove them.  They turned out sparkling!

Overall, it was an easy project, and I'm glad I kept the original handles!
I love it's charm and Shabby Chic appeal! Can't beat that makeover
for less than $10!!

DIY: Pastel Glitter Shell Wreath


It's raining cats and dogs here in LA and that gives me time to share my
latest DIY! I would say my house decor is somewhat beach glam, as my favorite place 
on earth is always a trip to any beach! (especially Hawaii!!) I'm a big
believer in decorating your house with what you love and what makes you happy
to look at! 
So here I've got a pretty Spring pastel colored shell wreath. Super easy to make, and
a lot of fun too! 


What you'll need:
A glue gun & glue sticks
Wreath
Pastel Glitters
Shells: I found mine at Marshall's
Modge podge
a sponge brush or paint brush
Pretty Ribbon


First, layout some newspaper, as the glitter and glue gets messy.
Then, start gluing your shells around the wreath in whatever pattern you fancy. 
Let the glue set and dry.


Next, apply with a brush or sponge brush a light layer of Modge podge on select shells
and sprinkle your pretty glitters.  This part is fun! 
Let the glitter set and dry.


Finally, I added some faux pearls around the areas where there
was spaces or glue showing.  I found a package at Walmart 
for around $2!
I added this gorgeous sequins ribbon that I found after Christmas on clearance!
I always stock up on ribbon after the holidays, it's the best time to score pretty
designs that you don't see in regular stock.  
Just tie a pretty bow around the wreath in a area where the shells
won't break off and hang wherever you like!


We've got clouds so the pics are a little dark, but the shimmer is so pretty in person! 
With spring and Easter coming up, these pastels are a beautiful touch!
Hope you try it out and tag me with your own versions!! Happy DIY -ing!

Loving this weather we are having in Cali right now, it's cool enough to wear a light

Le Meow

(Dress: H&M, Shoes: Sam Edelman, Ring: Betsey Johnson, Purse: Kirna Zabete)

Bonjour amores! Hope you are having a loved filled week.  
Quick OOTD post with this dress that had me at first sight from H&M!! 
I'm going thru a major black and white phase again with my clothing.  It started when I was eight 
and I haven't grown out of it! Sorry mom! Anyway, this month is flying by, I've
been in the studio getting my spring collection together for Glameratti.  I'm super excited to 
share it with you guys! 
I've got an amiga coming into town this weekend, so I've
got to get the guest bedroom freshened up, I'm thinking a lovely vase of assorted
pink tulips will be a nice touch too by her bedside! Maybe some chocolates on her pillow? 
Do you have anything special you do for your guests? I would love to hear!
Happy Valentine's! Besos - Taj

DIY: Glam Heart Chalkboard

Love is is the air these days around my house! I can't get enough of anything hearts, lips and pink!
I found this cute little heart chalk board at Target in the dollar section and I decided to pretty 
it up a bit with pearls, sequins and beads.  What do you think? Not bad for a $1!! 
I think I will switch out the red rope with a pretty pink ribbon instead. Have you done
any Valentine crafts yet? Please share if you do! xo -Taj
