Finish The Dream

When Gary Vaynerchuk was a little boy, he dreamed of being incredibly rich. Actually, for him it wasn't a dream as much as it was a foregone conclusion. It was just something he KNEW was going to happen. Last month I had the opportunity to hear Gary speak, and not surprisingly, his dream came true. He took his family wine business from $3 million to $60 million a year by leveraging his abilities and the never-ending marketing tools the internet creates to reach customers - email, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, etc. He has since parlayed his success into a venture capital firm and a social media agency of 500 employees.

Vow to be Chic

I have been in more weddings than I can count as a bridesmaid. The dresses from each wedding sit deep in the back of my closet never to be worn again after that day.

They have designer bridesmaid dress rentals. (Think Rent the Runway but JUST for bridesmaid dresses!) Basically, bridesmaids pay one flat price.

DIY : Eye Makeup Remover

This is probably the easiest DIY in the world. It is safe and works like magic to remove ever inch of eye make up, even stubborn black liner. It is important to buy expeller cold pressed organic coconut oil. I scoop a little into my palm to let it warm up and melt. Then I take a cotton ball and dip it in the oil to absorb it all. Swipe over eyes gently a few times and you will see the make up wipe right off. It leaves lashes conditioned and eyelids moisturized. Simple and effective.

Epic Beauty

Denise and I are constantly on the search for natural "good for you" beauty products. Whenever I go into big department stores and look at makeup the majority have parabens along with a list of other ingredients that are horrible for our body.
