Hi, guys!! Hope you all are having an incredible summer! It has been a while since my last post because I have been crazzzzzzzzy busy!! Over the past month I went on a 3 week vacation to the Philippines, and was blessed to work for Nintendo, Corona, & Modelo! With many thanks to Lead Detectors, it is my third blessed year working for Nintendo, and I just cannot believe how fast the time is flying!! Many, many thanks as well to Affinity Artists for booking me with Corona & Modelo! ❤ ❤ The days are flying by so fast lately that I have not had a split second to blog or shoot YouTube videos. So sorry my loves!! So today I thought I would share my latest fashion photos, photographed by Patrick Massou. If you are following me on Twitter, Instagram, & Facebook, I am posting daily on those socials. Hope you guys are all having a beautiful week! Much love!!!! XO ~Kelle
A few newbies from my photo shoot this past weekend with Patrick Massou! Shooting with Patrick makes my job so much easier than it looks! He has such an eye for artistic details!! A photography master, he captures the essence of the character in the most precise moment. May we all be free to be who we desire to be. Whomever. Whenever. And in whatever wig 🙂 Much love. XO ~Kelle
One of my favorite ways to boost my skin is by soaking raw almonds. Soaking raw almonds removes the tannins from the shell, which allows the nutrients to absorb better in your body. It takes only minutes to do and soaking them makes enough to last as a daily snack for a few days.
What you will need: a handful of raw almonds, filtered water, and a bowl with securable lid.
First, place handful of almonds in bowl. Then add 1/2 cup of filtered water. If using more than a handful of almonds, simply adjust the amount of water, ensuring that all almonds are submersed in the water. Secure the lid to your bowl.
Then let the almonds sit for 8+ hours. Once they have soaked, it’s time to peel them. Simply peel off the brown peel and then eat. I like to prepare mine at night so that they are ready to peel and eat when I wake up. I love adding them to my oatmeal!
Soaked almonds are an awesome way to get your protein, fiber, & omega nutrients while also giving you glowing skin while on the go. Enjoy and have a beautiful weekend! XOXO ~Kelle

Hello, my lovelies!! Today is a 90 degree day in L.A. which brings me to the real hot topic of foundations. There are always so many options to choose from at the drugstore! My love for Rimmel’s Match Perfection medium coverage foundation is still going strong as my fave foundation, thanks to its skin-like qualities!! However, when it comes to shooting I like to wear a full coverage foundation. That said, I decided to put Rimmel’s 25 Hour Lasting Foundation with Comfort Serum to the test, in my photo shoot this week with photographer, Patrick Massou. He is one of my favorite photographers and it is always such a pleasure to create with him! It was a perfect sunny day for us in Hollywood! While the weather was mid-70’s during the day of the shoot, my skin felt like it reached 90 degrees; in part due to working up a sweat from time to time. A great thing about Rimmel’s 25 Hour foundation is that it does have sunscreen in it, with a spf of 20. Generally, for shooting it is best to go with a high-definition HD foundation. But since our shoot took place outside, I needed the spf and super appreciate that it helped protect my skin. All in all, I give this foundation an A++!!! I love the smell! The scent is exactly the same as my Rimmel Match Perfection foundation that I adore. 25 Hour applied evenly and left me with a lovely dewy finish; with just the right amount of coverage for the shoot. This beautiful skin-in-a-bottle foundation also claims to be heat and sweat proof! The foundation did live up to its claims and lasted all day AND night! Well into the 12th hour of wear, it looked just as good as when I had put it on in the morning! 25 Hour will be my summer skin go-to foundation for sure! Last summer was a hot one in L.A. and this sweat and heat proof foundation will be just the trick for keeping it from melting away 🙂 Also, my face felt moisturized all day, and I am guessing that is because of the Comfort Serum in which it comes equipped. I heart serums, so this is the bonus plus in the A++ I give to this all-around excellent foundation! Bravo!
In my review video, I discussed Rimmel’s Stay Matte Powder. This powder is now a new favorite! The shade I wear is Sandstorm and I’ve been wearing this powder nearly every day. Since I am a lover of the dewy look, a little goes a long way for me and I like to use it sparingly in my t-zone. It is also a great shade for the under eye area! I applied the powder only once in the morning and once towards the end of my shoot, to soak up some sweat beads from the calories I was burning in the sun. This is an outstanding powder and one that I will use over and over again!
Lastly, I am LAAAAAAA-VING Rimmel’s 3D lippie in the shade Popcorn for 2! This lippie is a dream-sicle on a doe-foot stick! Seriously, this color is an indescribable-iridescent-y duo-chrome shade that makes for the purrrrr-fect pout when smack-er-dabbed in the center of your bottom lip. I hope they come out with oodles more of these 3D duo-chrome shades. If this lippie had some fe-nomme lip venom in it, then it would be the super duper ultimate for pout perfection. Just saying! 😉 Hands down, this lippie in this shade is SO gorgeous! RIMMEL REVIEW & PHOTO SHOOT WITH PATRICK MASSOU! In this vid, I put Rimmel’s 25 Hour Lasting Finish Foundation to the test in my photoshoot! Enjoy! xoxoxo
