My new Teen Esteem column in Bellaboo Magazine

Hey beauties! Today I am very excited to announce my new Teen Esteem Column with Bellaboo Magazine. As I have mentioned on this blog before, I started interning with Bellaboo about two months ago. Bellaboo is a skincare company and a brand within a brand that works with teenagers and pre-teens on self esteem. Our mission is to change the world one person at a time, and help them to learn to love themselves just the way they are! There are a ton of us on the Bellaboo Team- we're called Chatterchicks and each chatter chick is assigned a job, and a place in the Bellaboo Magazine. The girls are amazing, and their talent and skills amaze me all the time.

I applied to be the Teen Esteem editor of Bellaboo Magazine and I got the job! I am so excited because I'm super passionate about Pro- Self Esteem and this is my chance for my voice to be heard every month and spread a positive message.

Check out my first monthly column here:

I hope you enjoy reading, and check out the rest of the magazine too for beauty tips, celebrity access, style tips and more!!!!!!!!

I love being a part of the Bellaboo Family.

Review- Lioele Blackhead Zero Nose Patch

We're all familiar with these guys. You'd be surprised how much gunk is hiding in your nose pores. It's actually quite shocking. I recently picked up these Lioele Blackheadzero Nose Patch's from Pretty and Cute, hoping they would be the answer to my blackhead problems. Was I right? You'll have to keep reading !

These nose strips claim to
  • Quickly remove dead cells and debris that clog pores and cause skin problems.
  • This nose patch can effectively soften keratin, maintain oil balance, and reduce the apperance of large pores.
  • For best result, use Lioele Pore Clean & Tightening Pack afterward to reduce excessive oil and tighten pores.
  • Continuous use can control oil balance and prevent blackheads from forming.

                              Here is a look at my 'Before' Nose Strip

    The top of the nose strip is made of a fabric like material, and the side that is photographed is the side that goes on your skin. It is a shiny and smooth texture, and I think it may be charcoal, which is well known to draw out impurities, and charcoal is a big thing in asian skincare (especially nose strips).

    The AFTER photograph is really gross! 

    Now that the disclaimer has been made, let me show you the final result.

    EWWWWWWW...... I could not believe all of that came out of my nose! 

    My final conclusion on the Lioele Blackhead Zero Nose Patch is that it does the job! I like these and will definitely pick up more. 

    I hope this review was helpful to you, and if you'd like to pick these up for yourself just head over to

Review: EssentiallyBella

When it comes to body scrubs, I don't suffer fools gladly. It's so hard to find the perfect scrub- they're either too runny, to abrasive, the scrub disappears as soon as water hits it, you know what I'm talking about girls.... So I took a chance when I purchased from a little store on etsy called 'EssentiallyBella'.

Essentially Bella body scrubs are made by Jami and her products are free
of Sulfates and Parabens. Instead, she uses Organic coconut oil, and essential oils, and other natural products. And EssentiallyBella NEVER tests on animals- I love that!

First of all, let me say that all of Jami's products smell absolutely GORGEOUS.


This body scrub does a great job at exfoliating and I LOVE the way it leaves my skin soft and hydrated- you can feel the coconut oil on your skin even after washing the scrub off, and it feels so nourishing.

I rate this product 5 stars on a scale of 1-5 and I recommend you give it a try if you're searching for a new scrub. Prices range from $5-$14 depending on the size.

Find EssentiallyBella on etsy.

In addition to the body scrub, I also picked up the lavender bath and shower oil.


This oil comes with the option of a spray pump or normal pump- I use the spray pump and it distributes the oil very well- and a little goes a long way! This oil is VERY hydrating and soothing. I love to spray a few spritz in my bath, and I use it directly on my body when I've stepped out of the shower. You don't need lotion anymore after using this!

Purchasing a product from a etsy seller can be tricky- since it's not a 'brand name', you never know if it will be hit or miss- but these two products are definitely a HIT and when I run out, i'll be back for more!

Definitely check out EssentiallyBella on Etsy CLICK HERE TO GO TO ESSENTIALLYBELLA STORE and if you have any questions, send a message to Jami. She is so sweet and very helpful!

Enjoy, beauties!
