HAPPY THANKSGIVING | 5 THINGS I’M THANKFUL FOR

Happy Thanksgiving!  As I get older, I’ve learned to love thanksgiving over other holidays. A day where we gather with our loved ones and focus on what we are thankful for. Food and love, who doesn’t want that?  This time last year, my mom had recovered enough to visit our new apartment for Thanksgiving. I was so excited for my mom to see our tiny new place, which we quickly moved out of two months later. Chris and I killed…

2017 FALL FASHION LOOKBOOK | POSITIVE BODY IMAGE

My blog and YouTube channel started off as Dress Yourself Happy. Because when I was going through a pretty rough time in my life, I found the blogging world that reminded me all the work I was doing on the inside wasn’t enough, I had to dress myself happy too. While I’ve always loved beauty and skincare, I LOVED fashion. Playing with different trends and finding things that worked for my body was always fun. Dealing with some body image…

HUSBAND DOES MY MAKEUP | 100K GIVEAWAY

We did it! 100,000 subscribers on YouTube. It’s incredibly surreal to me that we have hit this milestone together. My channel didn’t grow overnight. I don’t have a viral video that sent my views skyrocketing. There were a few collaborations and shout outs from friends and channels I’ve always respected which helped give me a boost, but this has been a three year journey. I’m so excited and overwhelmed. Today’s post is a HUGE THANK YOU to my subscribers. As…

GENETIC HAIR LOSS OR BAD HAIRCUT?

Will I start to have hair loss? This is a question I ask myself frequently. My mom dealt with hair loss. In fact my entire extended family has hair loss. My uncles are thinning if not bald and I don’t remember my grandparents having much hair either. Genetic hair loss is a concern of mine and I want to share it with you today. I’ve partnered with Rogaine to open up and talk about the subject. So many people deal…

RELAX and TAKING A BREATH MID WEEK

In my last post, I shared how I struggle finding balance between work life and personal life. This is a challenge because I love what I do. Also being on social media, blurs the line between work life and personal life. So it’s always a blessing when work forces me to stop, breath, and look around. Last week I was invited to Derma•E’s Zen In The Bu 2. A Malibu retreat hosted by Derma•E which encouraged us to take a breath…

DOG GROOMING IN PASADENA SPLASH AND DASH

Dolly and Cooper are my children. I know many who do not have dogs or pets, can’t grasp the concept of fur babies, but it’s a real thing. I’ve had Dolly and Cooper for seven years and cannot imagine life without them. Dolly can sense when I’m upset and will stay by my side to comfort me for hours. Cooper is usually a neurotic mess because he takes after me personality wise. In fact he looks like me too. Dolly…
