SUNINA x ALLY LOVE: 20 MINUTES OF BEAUTY

IMG_0041 Here is Part II of Ally Love and I’s beauty post; Part I can be found here. Ally know’s the importance of putting her mind and body at ease to achieve beauty seemingly effortlessly. She jets around New York on modeling shoots as a Wilhelmina model, is a Brooklyn Nets Host, and passionate devotee of all things wellness, so its no wonder she is also founder of ALLYLOVEBLOG.COM; It is all about empowering yourself and other women in the game, hence #LOVESQUAD – check it out!

I was so thrilled to have spent the day with her for all things beauty, we took our time to meditate (as seen on our last post), and to do a mini spa facial as well. We are both constantly on the go, so it is great to share with you a 20-minute self-care ritual that you can do for yourself at anytime. It’s about that glow on the go! Here’s what we did to achieve a quick glow while we were both on the go:

Step 1: Hello Kitty Narikiri Face Mask – these are so fun. I picked these up in Japan at a stopover in Narita Airport. It’s a super simple mask that contains water, soybean extracts, collagen, and other ingredients for brightening – perfect for a quick glow. Keep this on for just 15 Minutes.

Step 2: A nice mist after the mask to serve as a toner: Whamisa Olive Leaf Mist – This is one of my favorites to keep around with me at all times. I take them around the city with me and even spritz while teaching, after working out, or anytime i just need a little pick me up or glow in the skin.

Step 3J.One Hana Cream – These little capsules are just the right amount to give you full moisturizing coverage. It is a dramatic anti-aging cream. Use this after you pat your mist dry. Use gentle circular motions.

And, don’t forget your SPF if you are headed outside while the sun is still out! And you’re done!

xx love & light.

SELF-CARE SUNDAY VIDEO: RUBBER MASKING

Written by , Posted in Beauty, Self-Care, Skin Glow

For skincare sunday this week I wanted to highlight the amazing benefits of the quick and easy rubber masking! Super popular in skin spas in South Korea that is now available outside of the spa. This is very exciting as I’ve had rubber masking done several times in spas to end a facial, but now it can be done at home. Thank you Glow Recipe (www.glowrecipe.com) for bringing this product to the US.

Enjoy!

MY DREAM WEDDING: 30-DAY MIND BODY BEAUTY PLAN

Written by , Posted in Beauty, Body, Love, Mind, Sunina

When I first started wedding planning I knew exactly how I wanted it to be, and what my dream wedding would look like: stress-free! Which is why the first vendor I hired was a wedding planner. I could care less about the ‘dream dress’ the ‘dream flowers’ the ‘dream etc etc etc’. All I knew is that I had my dream man, and that is all that counts 😉 I kept my expectations very low, but was very decisive and selective about quality within the choices I had. My planner would say, “You are the most zen bride- – that requests all the most fabulous things”. Precisely..

Day of the wedding, I kept telling myself to be in the moment, be present. I am glad I did because there were some amazing moments I was able to take in fully.

Here is what I did to get my mind, body, beauty as best as it could possibly be. (I did not change much in what I usually do, however I was definitely way more careful and conscious of what I was doing, making sure I was getting enough sleep, etc.)

30-Day Wedding Preparation:

  1. Mind
    Meditation daily with affirmations
    A Course In Miracles Reading twice a week + Yoga once a week – self practice.
  2. Body
    SLT twice, just twice within the month- why only twice? Because SLT really works. And it works instantly. So I knew I had to keep it at a minimum as I like my shape a specific way. I don’t like to look too ‘cut’.
    Green Juice + Watermelon Juice and/or Acai Bowl everyday.
    Frank Bod Body Scrub – twice a week.
    Korean Spa + Scrub – once every 2 weeks.
  3. Beauty
    Affirmations every other day.
    Eye Mask + Sheet Mask everyday Leaders InSolution
    Gel Manicure every 10 days.
    Eyelash Extensions one week before the wedding
    Glycolic + Enzyme Facial Peel (Triple Peel Facial) 10 days before the wedding
    IPL Treatment – 2 days before the wedding

Morning of Wedding Preparation:

  1. Mind
    Group meditation with bridesmaids + I led a prayer.
  2. Body
    Body Scrub (not a group effort 🙂 )
  3. Beauty
    Leaders Insolution Sheet Masks for all of us before hair & makeup.
