Style Icon: Sophia Loren

Before Sophia Vergara, there was Sophia Loren.  Sophia Loren is one of the most beautiful women in the world. She has a beautiful face, wonderful bone structure,perfectly arched eyebrows, full lips and curves for days.
Men obviously love her too. She placed sixth in Playboy's 100 Sexiest Women Of The Century feature! 
I first saw Sophia in the 1995 movie, Grumpier Old Men where she played Walter Mattheus love interest, Maria Sophia Coletta Ragetti. And ever since then, she's been my style icon. From the glamorous dresses, sexy body fitting dresses, to the over sized floppy hats, and to her sky high heels. 
At the age of 80, she is still just as beautiful as ever.

Everything you see I owe to spaghetti. -Sophia Loren

 You have to enjoy life. Always be surrounded by people that you like, people who have a nice conversation. There are so many positive things to think about. -Sophia Loren
 Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical.
-Sophia Loren

 You have to be born a sex symbol. You don't become one. If you're born with it, you'll have it even when you're 100 years old. -Sophia Loren
 Sex appeal is fifty percent what you've got and fifty percent what people think you've got. -Sophia Loren

 I think the quality of sexiness comes from within. It is something that is in you or it isn't and it really doesn't have much to do with breasts or thighs or the pout of your lips. -Sophia Loren

 A woman's dress should be like a barbed-wire fence: serving its purpose without obstructing the view. -Sophia Loren
 There is a Fountain of Youth: It is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of the people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age. -Sophia Loren

Of course I have many other classic Hollywood stars that I adore and consider style icons, Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly and Vivien Leigh. 
Who do you consider your classic Hollywood style icon?

Bare Minerals Beauty and the Beach Review

Last week I cashed in my beauty points on for this lovely sample set by bare minerals. The set is called Beauty and the Beach and it includes 5 pieces for a summer look. The set included marvelous moxie lip gloss in party starter, ready bronzer in the skinny dip, bare minerals ready blush in the natural high, all over face color in pure radiance and a sample of their lash domination mascara. So here is my take on the set: Here it is ladies!
Marvelous Moxie lipgloss in Party Starter- this is a darker, coral and peach color. It was very sticky but it lasted for a few hours. It matched the blush perfectly.
Ready Blush in The Natural High: This blush is a nice peachy pink color, it looks really shimmery in the package but looks more matte when applied. I loved that the color matched the gloss!
Ready Bronzer in The Skinny Dip- I used this to contour and sculpt my face and it turned out beautiful. It matched my skin tone very nicely. Its very similar to the too faced bronzers.

Review: Too Faced Teddy Bear Brush Set

By request, here is my very first beauty product review.

This lovely brush set is the Teddy Bear Hair Brush Set by Too Faced Cosmetics, $65 on I've always been a fan of Too Faced, there products are great and I love how they package and market their products. So of course I was very excited to receive this brush set. This set comes with 5 makeup brushes and a bag to carry them. I love tge bag, I see myself using it for something else; i dont like tge idea of makeup brushes being loose in a bag. The set includes a large powder brush and 4 brushes for the eyes, contour, blender, all over shadow and liner.

The brushes as expected, are super soft. They really feel like a soft teddy bear! I also loved that they printed the name of the brush on the handle, so you could always know what each brush is for. So after using the brushes to apply my makeup here are my thoughts:

Powder Brush: This is my new favorite big brush! I don't wear powder but I used it for a blush brus…
