My first ever makeup tutorial

This is the final look from my first ever “proper” makeup tutorial! I never realized how hard it is to give directions and do my makeup at the same time. Now that I know what it takes, the next look will be much more polished, I promise!

I went with a soft pink glam for spring. You can see the tutorial in my highlights on my Instagram (@saltxashes).

Oh My Glow

Okay! Here’s the deal. I’m not an ambassador Love Wellness, this is not a sponsored post or anything of the sort. I just stumbled upon these products on Ulta’s website and WOW! I am obsessed. I’ve had issues with metabolism supplements in the past. They made me feel wicked speedy and anxious and it was so unpleasant. The Metabo Love is the polar opposite. It gives me the energy I need to get my butt off the couch and be productive. It doesn’t leave a bad taste in my mouth or make me feel painfully empty and hungry. It curbs my appetite (not the reason I purchased it, but for sure a plus) and even helps me focus a bit. I am not a morning person by any means and these give me the push I need to get going.

And the Good To Glow? Forget about it! It’s amazing! After a week of use my skin was literally glowing from within and I haven’t been able to find any skin product or supplement that has given me such immediate and satisfactory results. As with the MetaboLove, it leaves no bad taste in my mouth and doesn’t upset my stomach. I haven’t broken out at all which I have with other supplements in the past.

I 27/10 recommend these products for anyone interested. I purchased these from Ulta and I will definitely be checking out other products from Love Wellness.



Sometimes bed is just the right medicine, and that’s okay! Take one of these days for yourself once in a while. Just lay in bed and really, really enjoy it.


That’s amore

Wishing I was back in Italy eating the freshest of the fresh. There really is nothing else like it in the world! But maybe I’m biased. My mom is Puerto Rican and Cuban and my dad is Italian. I had been raised primarily in an Italian household. My grandmother is a very small Italian woman born and raised in Brooklyn. Italian culture, food, and soul flow through my veins and I truly felt like I was home here.

Fino a quando ci incontreremo di nuovo, amore mio.


Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mamas and mama figures and even papas out there. Anybody anywhere who has had to play the roll of mother, this day is for you!

This night was my cousin’s wedding. My first big event after coming home from living in Scotland and it was so fun. We were all a little too drunk having a blast. My mom and I stayed the game in these glam looks.
