HSN Alice Through the Looking Glass Collection

This post is brought to you by CJ Affiliate’s VIP Content Service. Thank you HSN for sponsoring this post. While this was a sponsored opportunity from HSN, all content and opinions expressed here are my own.

Ever since I saw Beetlejuice as a little kid, I’ve been fascinated with the look of Tim Burton’s films. As Cameron Crowe foreshadowed in Singles when he referred to Burton, in a cameo as Brian the “Expect the Best” dating service director, as “the next Martin Scorseeeeze,” the man knows how to create a phenomenal visual experience.

He certainly achieved that in the whimsical fantasy, Disney’s Alice in Wonderland, and the new director carried that vision into Alice Through the Looking Glass. It’s no wonder that HSN would tap their best designers, artisans and makers to create a collection of products based on the film. The collection includes clothing, jewelry, housewares and beauty products from brands like OPI, Urban Decay, Heidi Daus, Giuliana Rancic and Vince Camuto.

I’ve partnered with HSN to share some of my favorite pieces from the collection, paired with the OPI Alice Through the Looking Glass nail polishes.

PicoWay Laser and SkinMedica Peel for Hyperpigmentation

New Skin Care Products for Hyperpigmentation and Anti-Aging

If there’s one beauty lesson I wish I would have learned as a young girl, it would be to apply ALL THE SUNSCREEN and STAY OUT OF THE TANNING BED. As I get older, I am constantly reminded of those mistakes when I look in the mirror. I remember having great skin, you guys. Then, my 30s hit and cystic acne and sun spots/hyperpigmentation started to appear. How did I get through my teems with barely a breakout only to be cursed as an adult? Oh, hormones!

Until this point, I’ve tried a ton of affordable skin care options to get things under control, but it’s time to get serious. We only get one skin and I want to do what I can to erase my mistakes and prevent any further damage. Enter, SkinDeep Medi Spa. This Cleveland-based skin care clinic has the latest in laser technology, including the only PicoWay Laser in Ohio. This revolutionary laser is a miracle for both tattoo removal, hyperpigmentation, and anti-aging. Thanks to SkinDeep I have begun a series of laser, SkinMedica Vitalize Peel treatments, added a host of new products to my life, and I’m taking you along for the ride to see how my skin improves.

Easy Spring Makeup Tutorial

When it comes to makeup, I’m all about neutrals and keeping things simple, but I’m loving all the bold lip colors that are trending this spring. If you follow me on Instagram or SnapChat, you know I can’t get enough of the new Burt’s Bees® 100% Natural Lipstick in Magenta Rush (been wearing it non-stop), so I’m working with Burt’s Bees® and EcoTools® to create a fresh spring makeup look around that shade.
