Thirsty Thursday: YouthH2O Age Defying Shot

I don’t know about you guys but from running a beauty & lifestyle blog, one thing is clear to me: we all want to look and feel as young and gorgeous as possible. No one likes admitting to this fact because, well, there’s A LOT more to life than that but still, the fact that beauty and fitness blogs are so popular is just more evidence of this.

That’s why I personally can’t wait to try YouthH2O Age Defying system shot of superfoods!

If it can help me look like Evelyn Lozada here, that CAN'T be a bad thing!

It says that by drinking this superfood-laden beverage, your skin will glow, your immune system will be stronger and you’ll gain more youthful energy. Um, okay, sign me up!

Plus, it’s caffeine-free, vegan, gluten-free and sugar-free! Free of all you don’t want and chock-full of fat-burners, vitamins and everything you do want!

Plus, it’s just become available in New York this month at Duane Reade stores!

BF Asks: Have you tried the superfood shot, YouthH2O, yet? What was your experience?


Whatcha’ Wearin’ Wednesday: MAC Styledriven Shadow – driven by nostalgia

I don’t know about you  - but all of this back-to-school talk on BeautyFrosting has got me thinking of my younger days.

Watching Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom this summer made me wax nostalgic for school days.

More like the summers of school days! All of the romantic pining and adventure seeking left me missing the 12-year-old version of myself. She was waaaaay cooler than she thought she was!

But, even with all of that, there was one thing in that delightful nugget of a movie, that I just couldn’t get out of my head: Suzy’s (Kara Hayward’s) BLUE eyeshadow.


It was that perfect blue that you used to try on, while playing dress up at your grandmother’s. I was smitten. Oh, who am I kidding? I loved it.
And I decided I needed to try it on for size. Like right now.

Luckily, I had just recently been introduced to MAC Styledriven Pro Longwear Eye Shadow.

It was just the ticket. So I wore it all day long and it wore all day strong.

Then I went across the street to hang out with the girls.

Out of that came the delightful photo shoot below shot by 5-year-old Nora and “styled” by  3-year-old Lucy.

I decided that when it comes to retro true-blue, MAC Styledriven is the perfect answer to my nostalgic pains.
And, as you can see above, it takes me back to the days of dress-up!

Let it take you back, too. And you just might discover that the 12-year-old you was a lot cooler than you thought!




BF Asks: What makeup takes you back to the days of dress-up?

BF QOD: Growing up…

BF: Growing up...

“Growing up is unavoidable, but never growing up is possible. I believe you can retain certain things from your childhood if you protect them – certain traits, certain places where you don’t let the world go.”

(Johnny Depp)
