Happy 4th of July

Lydia Hearst

The 4th of July is upon us! I am a proud American, and this year there are so many reasons to celebrate Independence Day with fervor.

  • The recent Supreme Court ruling in favor of same-sex marriage. #LoveWins
  • American tourists are allowed to visit Cuba and the reopening of the American embassy since its 1961 closure. #Travel
  • And, the Confederate flag which is regarded as a symbol of racism, will finally cease to fly over public buildings. #LoveNotHate

One flag, one land, one heart, one hand, One Nation evermore! Have a happy and safe 4th of July!!

Protect The Skin You’re In

Thursday, July 2, 2015

It is officially summer! It is my favorite time to be outdoors hiking and enjoying the colorful flowers in full bloom. I love being able to step outside and just breathe the fresh air. Summer is also bikini season, a good time to hit the beaches and get tanned. I wanted to remind everyone that as beautiful as the days are, it is important to protect the skin you’re in.

Life’s Limitless Possibilities…

Wednesday, July 1, 2015

   Every moment happening now makes up the present – right here and right now in your life doesn’t have to be enmeshed with your past. It’s entirely possible to start anew! Who hasn’t been hesitant at one time or another to “start over” and begin again with a new project, goal or relationship due to whatever occurred in the past? I know I have been before. The past is the past… That’s where it should stay. This moment here and now is entirely different and new, which gives you the choice to go in any direction you want.
   It’s unfortunate that for so many life and love can be dictated by fear. No one might ever fully understand what it truly is that makes you, you… But the way I see it, is that even if I end up crying I can’t help but remain hopeful and open myself up to the possibilities. Experiences and relationships are paramount – My relationships with people are what motivate and inspire me in my life. There is no passion to be found in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living. Why not embrace each moment?! Life isn’t meant to be lived in comfort-zones… Take chances and don’t be afraid of the results – If you don’t challenge yourself you may never truly know yourself or grow. “Playing it safe” really just means that you’re going to miss out on a lot.
   A way to bridge a relationship with friends, family and those you love (including yourself!!) is to be honest with the heart and not just face literal truths. In life, there will always be risks that cause vulnerability and can sometimes lead to pain… BUT, sometimes the most cataclysmic changes in life come from pain. It’s important to remember that life is composed of moments – You have to take those moments as they come… Impulsively.

Ant Man Premier

Paul Rudd is brilliantly cast as Marvel’s tiniest super hero (he’s Ant Man in case you don’t already know that). This film is hugely entertaining with no shortage of inventive action scenes as well as softer, more heartfelt moments. I think it is the BEST film of the summer and is a sensational and significant piece to the Marvel universe.
Also, be sure to stay through the end credits…!

5 Surprising Things That Are Aging Your Skin

Monday, June 22, 2015



Falling asleep with your makeup on

Not washing your face before bed can lead to bacterial infections, clogged pores and acne. And, continued cleansing neglect can cause your skin to age up to EIGHT days on one night.

Lydia Hearst


I love my morning coffee, I even enjoy a nice afternoon espresso now and again, but be aware that caffeine is a MAJOR culprit when is comes to dry skin and the magnification of wrinkles. If you are a fellow coffee lover, be sure to hydrate and quench your skin by drinking LOTS of water to counteract the superficial affects of caffeine.

Lydia Hearst

Not Hydrating

It’s always surprising to me when people say that they don’t drink water. As humans, your body is composed of over 60% water. We all NEED to drink water to maintain healthy digestion, absorption, circulation, creation of saliva, transportation of nutrients, body temperature and to fight off aging.

Lydia Hearst


Constant cleansing and “yo-yo diets” have MAJOR negative impacts on your skin. This can lead to the breakdown of the natural collagen and elasticity in your skin causing sagging and stretch marks.

Lydia Hearst

Lack of Exercise

It’s important to exercise, get your heart pumping and your blood flowing. Working out leads to perspiration (which may be “gross” but is important) that cleanses the body of toxins and promotes cellular growth.

What Your Lipstick Says About You

Tuesday, June 16, 2015

Lydia Hearst blog

Bright Pink

You are a giddy, easily excitable and free-spirited individual. People are naturally drawn to your bubbly personality and you welcome meeting and making new friends.


This look is classically chic. You love the era of the roaring 20’s and the old Hollywood glam styles – basically you love anything vintage and sleek. You’re passionate, ambitious and willing to take the lead in any situation.

Dark Plum

You are daring, direct and bold. You set yourself apart from the crowd with your unique, stand-out-style. You don’t bullshit people, subtlety is not your forte – you’re always straight-forward.

Natural, lip balm

You are “wise beyond your years,” ambitious and lead a well-balanced life. You don’t get caught up in high-school drama and gossip and refuse to engage in petty behavior. Always looking to acquire new skills, build new bonds and never waste time you live your life to the fullest are highly productive with your time.


You will never lose your childish enthusiasm for living and loving life. You don’t necessarily crave the limelight, but people do naturally gravitate toward you. You love fashion and don’t just follow but create trends, a true fashionista.


You are quiet and reserved – people who don’t know you may even call you shy. You pay close attention to detail, are very goal-oriented and are deeply compassionate and loyal to those you allow into close circle of friends.
