Anybody that knows me, knows that I am the "Queen of Stuff". My friends all trip out on all the beauty products that I have acquired over the years. I could literally open up a beauty supply store with all the stuff that I have in my bathroom.
I can save you the hassle of wasting your money on worthless products because I've tried a zillion things over the years. I've even added links to my favorite products that REALLY WORK! Here are my tips for taking care of yourself and keeping a youthful look for as long as possible...
I never tan my face. I use sunscreen AND always put a towel over my face when I am in the tanning bed. I swear by Mystic Tan (www.MysticTan.com for a location near you) the day before photoshoots and appearances. I try to limit my tanning to once or twice a week.
I wear sunscreen on my face (SPF 35) every day. I like Vanicream ($11.00) which is free of dyes, fragrance & masking fragrance, parabens, lanolin, & formaldehyde.
I only wear makeup if I am going out at night or when I am doing a photoshoot. Never ever during the day. I feel that this gives your skin a break from foundations and powders which can clog your skin.
I drink lots of water. I recommend my favorites, Penta or VOSS. I mix one packet of Borba Skin Balance with 16 oz. of cold water twice a day. One packet of the Replenishing - Lychee for Dry/Dehydrated Skin ($100) in the morning & one packet of the Age Defying - Acai ($100) at night.
I try to get lots of "beauty sleep" whenever possible.
I swear by the Skin and Total Body Nutritional Supplements from N.V. Perricone ($120 for a one month supply). They are expensive but worth every penny.
These are the beauty products that I recommend:
Fresh - Lotus Eye Gel ($45) in the morning.
Fresh - Eye Balm Repair and Restore ($65) at night.
Clinique - All About Lips ($20)
Philosophy Purity One-Step Facial Cleanser ($20 or $32 depending on size)
Peter Thomas Roth - Botanical Buffing Beads ($30)
Peter Thomas Roth - Glycolic Acid Clarifying Tonic ($30)
DDF Ultra-Lite Oil-Free Moisturizing Dew ($31)
Fresh - Rose Marigold Tonic Water ($30)
Anti Aging Treatment:
Skin Medica - TNS Recovery Complex ($123.50)
Another expensive product but this stuff is amazing! It is the first skin care product in the world to contain naturally found proteins, amino acids, and antioxidants that our bodies use to help stimulate the skin to repair itself when damaged by the sun. Twice daily application improves the appearance of the skin, makes fine lines appear less visible, and gives the skin a healthier look.
Peter Thomas Roth - Oxygen Detoxifying Masque ($50) Once a week.
And to think that some people think that being a model isn't tough work!

This combination works well, provided the Aries partner can adjust to the Sagittarian's easy-going attitude to life. At times, this couple may seem to be more like a couple of friends than a pair of lovers. However, provided Sagittarius feels sufficiently committed to the relationship, the prospects are good.
If this relationship works, it is more because of the differences between the two partners than because of their similarities. The solidity of Taurus will contrast sharply with the slightly playful approach of Sagittarius. Problems may arise if Sagittarius becomes bored and needs more freedom than is possible with Taurus.
This can be a very active partnership: both Sagittarius and Gemini are dynamic people, who are constantly "on the go". At times, the relationship may appear to lack depth. It is important that they resolve any difficulties as soon as they crop up, rather than leaving them to get worse.
This relationship can work, but it may require a little more determination than some other combinations. The Sagittarian is a little too flighty for Cancer, who could become very insecure. The Cancerian, on the other hand, may respond to this by becoming even more clingy.
In some ways, these two are quite similar. They are both very extrovert, and will have a great deal of fun together. The Leo partner may find the Sagittarian a little unreliable, however: he will be very committed himself, and will want to feel that his opposite number feels the same way.
If this combination works it is probably because of the differences between the two partners, rather than their similarities. The Sagittarian is much more outward-going, and may seem a little wayward to the Virgoan. Virgo must try hard to understand his partner's need for freedom, since constant criticisms will only drive the Sagittarian away.
This is a good combination. They are both easy-going, and should be positive enough to rise above any disagreements. They are both the kind of people who enjoy the good things in life, and do not take themselves too seriously. They must be careful not to waste money, however, since both have an extravagant streak.
Sagittarians are not really serious enough for Scorpios. They can form a good balance to Scorpios' intensity, but this may not be appreciated, especially if the Sagittarian partner seems to be less than totally committed to the relationship. The Scorpion may also be a little too emotional at times.
Like all relationships between people with the same Sun-sign, this combination will either work very well, or not at all. Whatever happens romantically, however, these two are likely to have enough in common to be good friends. Dangers may arise if they are not careful with money; but, provided at least one partner is sensible in this area, and the other is not too extravagant, there should not be any serious problems.
If this works - and it certainly can - it will be an attraction of opposites. The Capricorn partner will be much more down-to-earth and negative than the Sagittarian: this will give some much-needed stability to the Sagittarian, while, at the same time, giving the Capricornian partner some inspiration. The physical aspect to this relationship is usually very good.
This combination will work, provided both partners have the same degree of commitment. Problems will arise if the Sagittarian's need for freedom is too great. Despite his flighty nature, the Sagittarian is warm-hearted, and may feel that the Aquarian is a little too distant at times. A great deal will depend upon other astrological factors in these people's charts.
This can be a workable combination, although there are important differences between the two sides. The Sagittarian will be attracted to Pisces' romantic nature, but may be a little too brash for his sensitive disposition. He will also have to become more dependable than usual. Pisceans can be very insecure, and need a lot of reassuring. The Piscean, on the other hand, must try not to be too clingy.
How do you attract a Sagittarius woman?
Although Sagittarian women are generally very capable and independent, they appreciate some chivalry from their male friends. Open doors for her and buy her flowers, unless she specifically objects to this. Don't let her practical manner fool you into thinking that she is not romantic.
Sagittarians are not particularly impressed by social status. Because Sagittarian woman are so good in business, it is quite possible that she will be earning more money than you.
After marriage, they can become surprisingly bossy. They know that they have good judgement of financial matters, and may well want to run the household finances. They can be trusted to make intelligent decisions.

By the way, I am blonde again. I dyed my hair back to blonde because I heard that Italians love blondes. I found out first hand *giggle*! All I kept hearing down there was, "Bobbi Bee-lard! Bella! Bella!". LOL! :)
Here's one of my last brunette pics. I didn't have a chance to take that many with my brown hair. I will definitely miss it! I shot this with the talented model and photographer Lisa Boyle.

If you haven't already heard during my camshows, I've been letting everyone know that I will be away most of June for a BIG gig over in Italy. I got hired as a valet by Nu Wrestling, which is a TV show over there. If you are in Europe, or if you feel like taking a vacation and meeting me in the process (woohoo! you never know!), then this is my very next live appearance. For more info, please visit:
And don't ask me what the hell it says there! LOL! I don't speak Italian, but I downloaded a few "Learn Italian Quickie 101" tapes online so at least I can ask where the bathroom is. Hehehe! If I like it out there and they like me, I just might very well move there. Who knows? I'm getting pretty friggin' sick of Cali!
If you need translation assistance, please visit:
AltaVista's Babelfish Translator
I know I did, but I am still a little bit confused. Your guess is as good as mine!
Anyway, I really hope to see you there! And if you do go, bring signs, and yell your head off when I come out... PLEASE! :) I want to knock these people dead when I'm out there so that they hire me back AGAIN and AGAIN! From what I hear, this will be a pretty good gig. I will also be selling BB merchandise at the shows, so if you want any of that good stuff from me, then here's your chance! :)
So take care and I will miss you when I am gone. Be good! And... see you when I get back. I am sure that I will have lots of interesting stories for you. :)
