The Ageless Makeup Series: Look Less Tired

The Ageless Makeup Series is back and this time Veronica is helping us look less tired. As the wife of a firefighter, I know first hand what a poor night of sleep does to one’s appearance.

Tria Age-Defying Laser Review and a Giveaway!

Many of you have been following along with my progress while using the Tria Age-Defying Laser. It’s been a few months since I first told you about my initial Tria experience back in March, just a few weeks into the 12-week treatment, with this post. A few weeks later, I followed up with a Q & A post at the 8-week mark. I have since completed the 12-week Tria Age-Defying Laser treatment and am taking…
