My secret to smooth, soft FEET

We all love pedicures I know. Sometimes, depending on the season feet can become more dryer than other times. To be honest I do not get pedicures anymore or atleast not as much as I used to. I keep toe nails and cuticles trim and I scrub my heels weekly in the shower. 
My secret is which I am sure many people know, before I go to bed I dump a big amount of vaseline all over my feet, then put socks on, as soon as you wake up in the morning your feet looks and feel GLORIOUS! If you don't know then it is time to know! What are you waiting for? Try it and come back and leave me a comment :)

Benefit of vaseline:

It forms an occlusive barrier to the natural water loss of our skin. So skin that is dry and chapped is protected from drying elements, enabling skin-softening moisture to build up naturally from inside the skin itself. Vaseline is a mixture of mineral oils, paraffin when blended together, it create something remarkable - a smooth jelly that has a melting point just above body temperature. The result - it literally melts into skin, flowing into the spaces between cells and the gaps in our lipid barrier. Once there, it re-solidifies, locking itself in place.  So it locks all moisture in!

Ballet Pearl Cream Review

Pearl cream makes your skin feel more younger looking. It contains in pearl like capsules, many kinds of amino acids, trace elements, and proteins which are indispensable to the human body and can be absorbed through your skin's epidermal cells. Ballet Brand Pearl Cream is made from precious Tai Lake pearl powder and other specially selected high quality materials and then mixed with natural essence. Frequent application leaves your skin delicate and satiny smooth. Pearl cream prevents your skin from getting coarse and aged, it also removes dark spots and diminishes wrinkles while keeping your skin lubricious and snowy white with a healthy glow.

Directions: Wash your face in warm water, then apply this cream lighty on your face with a gentle massage. Twice a day. Bedtime application specially recommended to enable full absorption.

*Personally I saw a glowing effect after the third day of use and the lotion itself is a thicker feel so not much is needed on skin. A little goes along way. A very inexpensive lotion for all beauties out there.

Ingridients: Stearic Acid, Cetanol Lanolin, Glyceryl Monostearate, Isopropyl Myristate, Sulfur, Perfume, Ion Exchange Water, Glycerine, Potassium Hydroxide and Pearl Powder.

How do you check for breast cancer? With the rapid increase of women who are affected by the disease, it is imperative that women become advocates for their own health. You must become proactive in your health examinations. Monthly self-breast examinations should be apart of your healthy health checkups. If you are unclear as to how to conduct a breast examination, here is how to check for breast cancer and also you can ask your gyno doctor for steps at home check up.

  • stand naked infront of a mirror. Get to know your tatas. Feel them and look for any changes from month to month.
  • check your nipples and even squeeze lightly for any discharge of any kind.
  • make sure you check from the armpit area and sides of the breasts.
  • It is important to know, if you find something early it is a better chance to survive this.
  • Pass the word not only we save our tatas, but we save our mothers, daughters, nieces, aunts and grandmothers.
I lost a very dear family member years ago, let me inspire you and check up asap!

Let's fight this and find a cure!

Thank you so much for reading!

Mix sugar and oil to a medium texture. Not to runny. Like the picture below. Add cinammon, you can make it as light or dark as you desire. Keep reading for more info

not too runny.

Sugar scrubs all old, dead skin of your body. So you can keep having younger looking skin.

Oil is perfect for dry skin.

Cinnamon has many benefits such as brings blood to the surface of skin, good for dry skin, and works good on acne skin. Also read the artlicle below from a magazine called Beauty mag.

Strong values and morals and a mentally strong..I am a christian, Im not perfect but I have a relationship with God don't take my kindness for weakess. I play dumb little do u know I am 10 steps ahead of u.. "I can be as cute and cuddlely as a lil cub but mess with the lion u get the CLAWS"-

Krystle: On Jerseylicious you show so much passion for doing makeup. How did you get into this career?
Im obsessed with makeup it has become quite an addiction, true life I'm addicted to makeup mtv come find me :):) when I was 3 I pretended to use my moms makeup and would stare at her mesmorized when she got ready.  When I was 12 I was looking through magazines wanting to look like the girls on the cover id go to sephora and buy it all..I enrolled in Barbizon modeling school went to nyc everyweekend with my dad, there he bought me my first set of makeup brushes in jr high id leave math class and do my makup all period in the bathroom, girls would soon follow me and id be glamin them up ontop of bathroom  counter and sinks! The day I turned 18 mac hired me.

If you had to go into business with one member from the Jerseylicious staff who would it be and why?

If I had to go into business with any member it would have to be Gayle or Tracy! Gayle is a smart business woman who's accomplished so much and a beautiful person inside and out, I know I could trust her..Tracy wants to open up her own runway makup hair thing and I think we would make a fab team.. put my makeup skills on someone hair she teased and we got americas next top model lmao

Let’s talk Hair…

Your hair is never lacking in shine; something many women want to achieve daily. What products do you use at home in the morning?

I wash my hair every 3 or 4 days but don't call me dirty! I use dry shampoo and shower with a shower cap..the natural oils in our hair keep it conditioned better then any 200 dollar hair mask ..I should bottle my hair oils lol jk that's gross..after a shower I let my hair fully airdry before blow drying,i hav an obession with morracan oil and my bf can't stop smelling my head check out

How do you stay tan or is it natural?

I don't tan in beds i'm petrified of wrinkles,girls your skin can't rejuvitate itself or grow back like ur hair n nails can..the skin ur born w is the skin u die ,and u wear it forever so treat it kind. I am 24 years old snd I know 18 year olds who need botox NOT NORMAL, use spf in foudation and lotion. Suns rays go threw windows.. self tanner st tropez, fakebake.

Ever think of creating your own line of makeup, if so what would you name it?

I have my own makeup line just workin on branding, it will be availabe at

You come off as having major confidence, which we love! Where do you think that confidence comes from?

why thank u..I think my confidence comes from being happy with who i am on the INSIDE, I love the person I am and it shows outwardly, i am not jealous or threatened by anyone because I know what I have been BLESSED with.. the only time people are insecure is when there not happy with WHO they are so do some soul seaching and learn to love youselves..when it comes to appearence I try to take care of my skin, hair and body. My bf keeps me workin out and healthy he's a personal trainer

What’s the best beauty advice anyone’s given you?

best beauty advice: get facials atleast once every 3months if your skin is crappy. It doent matter how much cover up you wear u still wont look flawless, also focus the most on your makeup..I spend more money on makeup cuz if my hairs in a bun and i am wearing a juicy jumpsuit but my makeup is done and your face looks beautiful your hot no matter wat you are wearing lolll oh and heat your lash curler w ith a blow dryer!

I can't live without anastacia and dior brow pencil, foundation, and bronzer .I also love a good contour.

Have you had the opportunity to work with celebrities, if not, who would you like to work with?

if I had a chance to work with a celeb it would be Kim Kardashian if she hired me to do her makeup then id truly believe I was the MAKEUP GODESS,client tell me i am

How do you define beauty?

define beauty I think everyone is beautiful in some way maybe someone has a face that's not concidered beautiful I bet that person still has the most gorgeous lips you've ever seen, or the longest eyelashes or the perfect brows, also" there's no point in having a PRETTY FACE if you got an UGLY SPIRIT" it takes away from your beauty..someone not good looking can have a sweet way about them that it actually makes me more attracted to them!

Who inspires you?

my mother inspires me everyday to be a better person then I was yesterday makeup wize...JLO, Kim K, Mario De Divanovic, and Alexis Vogel

That's all folks sorry for my novel. Stay GORGEOUS
