Bumps Under Your Eyes?

www.ilonashine.comLately I’ve noticed strange white dots on my face! They’re called milia, and they’re more prevalent than you think. These small, benign keratin-filled cysts are very common on babies (half of all newborns are born with them), and they afflict the faces of many adults. “Think of them as pimples with no opening ,” says my personal Esthetisian Biba de Sousa. Unlike regular pimples and blemishes, the keratin in these tiny cysts is trapped without an opening, so you can’t pop them! Read More

Restaurant “Terroni”- Los Angeles, CA

First time i was introduced to “Terroni” restaurant was by an Italian wine maker Giorgio from Falernia/Chile. He is also one of their wine suppliers. He told me: “As an Italian let me take you to the best Italian restaurant in L.A.” Little did i know that I will end up in a loud, we don’t take reservations, off the beaten path music, bad service, little rustic place with the most delicious, authentic Italian food I have ever tasted. Their pizzas are out this world, due to the most balanced in every way red sauce they put on it. Pasta’s are amazing and so is their appetizers. If you want good Italian food for under $$ go to Terroni. You just can’t go wrong here. But remember if you want to have a conversation get a table outside. It’s very, very laud inside. Buon appetito Giorgio!!!!!

Dolce & Gabbana Khol Collection for Spring 2012

Did you see Felicity Jones as a new face of Dolce & Gabbana, she is  just perfect model for the brand. In my opinion only Monica Bellucci could do it even better and she’s perfection! The new Spring 2012 makeup collection is called Khol and includes eye quad, eye liners and nail polishes. All of them are beautiful but one thing stood out for me is their Green nail polish!!! Dolce and Gabbana put the dramatic nail hue back on the map again. No longer reserved just for cool climates, rich shades easily wearable in the spring. Check out Wild Green and Blackened Purple on the picture above. What not to love, D&G always do it right.

Dark Hair Color

Lately I have been feeling a bit too light, I mean with regards to my hair color. Looking through tons of pages of the magazines I came across this photo of Ashley and her deep, rich hair color. In an instant I knew this is what I wanted. I mean come on!!!! I don’t eat the same food every day and I certainly don’t want the same hair color for more that two years. I though about all the different colors of lipsticks and eye shadows I can wear with dark rich color as hers. A girl got to experiment with everything right?….shoes, clothes, perfume, makeup, men and even her haircolor. Variety-is what keeps the spirit young and alive for most of us.

So if you have any thoughts about this color, tell me what you think??
