DREAM Event 2015

I was invited to attend and cover the DREAM Event at the 40/40 Club on Thursday, November 12th. Many influential Dominicans gathered together in support of DREAM. The DREAM Project is a non-profit organization that helps more than 6,000 children in the Dominican Republic have a quality education. DREAM has become a major success run by a paid local staff of more than 40 Dominicans, four expatriates and numerous volunteers from all over the globe. 

The DREAM event was hosted by Dominican bachata stars Henry Santos and Leslie Grace. The guest of honor was baseball player Robinson Cano, second baseman for the Seattle Mariners. Cano is well-known for his generous contributions to the Dominican Republic. The event was sponsored by Jet Blue and UBS. Guests enjoyed cocktails courtesy of Brugal.

Below are some photos from the event. If you would like to learn more about the DREAM Project and make a donation to the cause, you can click HERE to visit the DREAM website.

Dark, Sultry FOTD

Hello everyone! Today's post features a look that is fairly simple but great for the Fall season. I did a soft, brown smokey eye and paired it with a brown lip. I wanted to keep my eyes looking bright so I skipped the eyeliner and rounded out the eye shadow in the outer corner of my eyes.

For the face, I kept it fairly simple with a warm-toned blush and a touch of highlighter. I contoured the sides of my face to give my face a more sculpted look. Keep reading for product details.

Hell Notes For Beauty

Jessica from Hell Notes For Beauty was kind enough to send me a few items from her shop for me to review. She has a website that focuses on natural beauty and spirituality. I will admit that there are times that I will neglect my mind and spirit because I will be too busy with life overall. I have learned that it is important to practice soothing the mind and the spirit in order to create more harmony with my life.
