Absence

4 May

keep-calm-were-back-online-we-missed-you-2

HI dolls so I want to take a little quick post as to first apologize for our lack of posts and absence here. I know it has been a while and we might have lost quite a few amount of followers, but for those who continue to stick around thank you! I, Dirtyrichhh, the blogger behind the three glamour girls got a new job about 3 weeks ago and it has totally taken up a lot of my time. I am working Monday through friday 9am to 6pm and it has been a complete change compared to where I used to work. I used to work for the city of Los Angeles and now I am working in a national law firm which is #5 in the whole country. I used to work whatever hours I wanted to honestly and was home by 5 on a regular day unless events or overtime was needed then that changed but it wasn’t too often. In my new job, the first week I work 9 hours of overtime due to huge litigation events and I am in charge of catering/hospitality/events so I was working 12 hour days 3 days in my first week. I was coming home tired with blisters on my feet and just so exhausted but I love my new job so I knew that this is going to be worth it soon. I left my previous job because of lack of promotions/raises. I had been there for 3 years and as much as I tried to move up, it was not happening because of federal budget cuts, now with this job, they are already paying me more and talking about promoting me in 6 months. I’m so glad I made this change, and on top of that I am actually working with one of my best friends since 4th grade.

However, it has not been all sunshine and flowers… just 2 weeks ago my cousin went in for an emergency c-section and had twins (2 boys) . If you follow my IG you might have seen a post about it, but if not well here it goes…

Friday my cousin went in for an emergency c section and on saturday morning my family and I went to go see her and the family. We had heard there was troubles with one of the babies and were praying for him. We stayed there on saturday for about 7 hours and right before we left the doctors told us my cousin needed to go see the babies in NICU and we decided to leave then… right after we left I had a bad feeling in my guts but thought I was just over reacting so I ignored it, once my family and I got home an ate dinner I called my cousin and found out that the baby who was struggling had passed in her arms. I immediately broke down because I just thought this can’t happen to such an innocent little being. Well, it did and on Sunday we went to go see her again and were greeted with tears of despair and broken hearts. Since then I just haven’t been feeling myself, I have stopped working out, stopped taking care of my nails, and blogging. However, now we have realized that all that happened is that we gained an angel watching over us and over his brother. His brother that is still here with us is 2 weeks and 2 days strong and although has had his ups and downs, we know he is here to fight and live a long healthy life. I thought for a while about giving up on the blog, but honestly it is like my therapy for me, doing my nails is me time, I don’t think about anything else, just focus on my nails and I knew that I just needed time. I’m sorry I left abruptly and didn’t post or say anything, I just know I can’t give up and will continue posting!!

With that said I will have some posts up for you guys this week… Hopefully first one starting tomorrow. Thanks for your continued support

Love,

TTGG

Teeth whitening

20 Mar

Hi dolls so tonight I have a box sent to me from influenster …. it is the Colgate brush whiten and go system. It comes with a tooth brush, mini toothpaste, and a teeth whitening pen that is awesome attached to the toothbrush. I want to tell you guys what I think. The following are my opinions and are not biased , they never are.

The toothbrush is great, the bristles were a little tough to get used to but nothing out of the ordinary. I’m sorry I didn’t take photos of the exact products, as usual, I used it before I even took pictures. I used the mini toothpaste with the tooth brush and after I used the whitening  pen. now the whitening pen is a gel, I am getting to the results but, first I need to tell you that the gel kind of annoyed me, especially with my bottom teeth. I was able to apply the gel to my top teeth, it was easy but to my bottom teeth I felt as though my mouth and drool would take it off. With my top teeth I just applied and held a smile for a few minutes to let it dry but with my bottom teeth I couldn’t let it dry. Since I couldn’t find a way to let my bottom teeth dry without drooling everywhere I jusT focused on my top row. And well… here are my results after 2 weeks… it says whiter teeth in 2 days but because I wasn’t using it as directed here are the results… no filter!

I think it worked great and definitely see a change… usually pink makes my teeth look super yellow but look at how white they are!!! Yay! Thank you to influenster for the package !!

Skincare Routine- ALL NATURAL SKINCARE SECRET INSIDE!!!

26 Feb

Hey dolls,

So today is my most requested skincare routine. I will not be posting pictures of some of the products since I have already used them and are inside my shower so labels are torn off, but I will try to use the vendors photos if available. First, I want to give you a background to my skin. As a little girl, I have always had sensitive skin. Anything would set it off into rashes and dry patches. When summer would hit, I would get heat rashes on my arms and neck and during winter my skin would feel so dry and cracked. Fast forward to my teenage years… I learned how to protect my skin from rashes and dryness but I started to get zits and pimples here and there, never acne, it was more like I didn’t know I needed to wash my face at night or in the morning before and after makeup, as well as after doing P.E class and other athletic/outdoor activities so my skin would on occasion break out around my cheeks and chin. Fast forward to now… I feel that at 25 years old  (yes I’m 25) I finally know how to take care of my skin and protect it. So here is what I do:

Morning:

Brush my teeth

use my lip scrub of Julep sugar smooch lip scrub which smells and tastes so yummy (don’ eat it!!) Its so amazing!!!!

julep lib srub

I use a face cleansing oil by Julep which I also use at night to remove anything my other makeup remover left behind.

face oik
Tone and refreshen my face with Juice Beauty hydrating mist. It doesn’t smell great but it works greatto lightly hydrate my face

Then I also spray this yummy face mist that smells sooooo delicious as an added moisture by C booth which is “Honey almond Nourishing dry oil mist”c booth

Then I use my eclos eye creameye cream

Next I moisturize with Lancome Bienfait Multi-vital which has spf 3o so it is perfect because even though it isn’t summer or sunny, you can still damage your skin even on a cloudy day.

img-thing_50e51b626675bThen I prime my face, depending on the weather and what I am doing for the day, I will use whichever primer is perfect. My Next post will be on the primers I use. Keep an eye out for that!

Then I apply my makeup

Ok Night time!!!!

I remove my eye makeup first with Nars oil-free eye makeup removernars eyemakeup remover

Then I remove my Facial makeup using Hain Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, its gentle yet effective and leaves your skin hydrated

coco oil

Once a week (usually on a sunday) before I shower I use Julep Mask Noir. Its a black mask that takes a little work to apply because it starts drying in seconds and must be applied evenly. Then when completely dried in aboout 15-20 minutes peels off completely. julep mask

Also once a week I use these Freeman Beauty products. I alternate between them. When my skin feels dirty or I have a zit or blackhead I use:avocado

When my skin feels on the dry side I use:
cucumber  (usually on a Wednesday or Thursday)

OK HERE IS MY ALL NATURAL SKINCARE SECRET THAT HAS REALLY HELPED ACTIVATE THESE PRODUCTS AND HELPED MY SKIN BE SO SMOOTH THAT I GET TONS OF COMPLIMENTS ON:

Before I shower and after I use the products above I make an all-over face and body scrub that smells good and works so well with everyone. It doesn’t clog my pores, doesn’t break me out, and is gentle and all-natural.  IT’S GENTLE ENOUGH FOR DAILY USE BUT I WOULD FIRST RECOMMEND MAYBE EVERY OTHER DAY FOR THE FIRST WEEK FOR FASTER RESULTS AND AFTER SO, SLOW IT DOWN EACH WEEK, TO THEN ONLY DO IT ONCE OR TWICE A WEEK ONCE YOU HAVE ARE HAPPY WITH YOUR PROGRESS. YOU WANT TO GIVE YOUR SKIN A DAY OR TWO TO BREATHE.

HERE IS WHAT I DO:

IN A COFFEE MUG

1/2- 3/4 OF A CUP OF 100% NATURAL CANOLA OIL

1/3-1/2 CUP OF RAW BROWN SUGAR

1/4 CUP OF 100% NATURAL VITAMIN E SKIN OIL

MIX THE INGREDIENTS WITH A SPOON AND RIGHT BEFORE I SHOWER (WHILE IN THE SHOWER, NO WATER RUNNING) I GET THE MIX IN MY HANDS AND SCRUB DOWN MY WHOLE BODY AND FACE. FROM MY FOREHEAD DOWN TO MY HEELS OF MY FEET.I SCRUB MY SKIN WITH IT REALLY WELL, ALL MY FACE, NECK, ARMS, LEGS, EVERYTHING AND THEN TURN ON THE WATER AND WASH IT OFF. IT WORKS AS A NATURAL EXFOLIANT FOR YOUR SKIN AND YOU DON’T NEED TO USE A BODY WASH (WHICH DRIES OUT YOUR SKIN) IN THE SHOWER AFTERWARDS. I STILL CONTINUE WITH MY FACIAL ROUTINE BUT AFTER EXFOLIATING MY BODY WITH THIS I DO NOT USE A BODY WASH. IT LEAVES YOUR SKIN SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO SMOOTH YOU WILL LOVE THIS. I HAVE GIVEN A FEW OF MY CLOSEST FRIENDS THIS SECRET AND THEY LOVE IT AND DO THIS EVERYTIME. THIS HAS MADE PEOPLE “JEALOUS” OF MY SKIN AND MAKES ME LOVE MY SKIN.

Then its showertime (my favorite time)

I first start off with Michael Todd Charcoal Facial scrub. This scrub is amazing!! I dont use this everyday usually just every couple of days because it is so potent and effective that if I do it everyday my skin would feel so sensitive so I find that usually 3 times a week is perfect. Michael-Todd-Jojoba-Charcoal-Facial-Scrub-Made-In-USA__01420779_1After this or if its a “skip this scrub” day then I use Disturbed Potions Black soap with apricot seeds facial scrub or the Tea Tree facial scrub. I use one day the black soap and the next day the Tea tree. Let me tell you, I love love love these scrubs, they have single handedly helped my skin. They work so amazingly and I highly recommend any and all their products. You will see why!  I dont have any photos as I said before they are pretty beaten up lol and they are out of stock so there are no photos up yet. But trust me they are amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok next I use Freeman beauty Creamy scrub: Apricot. OMG it smells soooooooooooooooooo good and it makes my skin feel soooo smooth too. This is a great scrub to draw out those impurities like dry skin flakes.

l4d63f54178119Next I use another Freeman Beauty Face scrub which is the Facial Refining Cleanser: Pear  with my Olay Pro-x brush which both together makes my skin so darn smooth and soft like a babies butt! lol

pear cleanserolay

I highly recommend freeman beauty as well. To be honest, I love all their products and experiment with them all. I even bought their face scrubs, masks, and cleanser sampler pack and have found that these products work best but I still see results with most of their stuff.

Ok then Out of the shower

Then I use my e clos eye cream again


I moisturize with the Hain organic extra virgin coconut oil. I usually use about half a tablespoon and rub it into my hands and rub it all over my face.

On my lower body (waist to knees) I moisturize with Disturbed Potions Dimply Butt Butter which is a great treatment for getting those mean cellulite parts of your body and makes your skin so soft, it is also great for cuticles btw!

dbb

You can read more info on this amazing product here !! It sells out super quick when it goes back into stock so I recommend following @playwanet on IG (annette from Disturbed Potions) so that you can know when the next restock is. I have suggested this to many people, they have purchased it and loved it! Its a highly sought after product. I highly recommend all their products!!! You’ll love them!

The rest of my body I just use my fave Bath and Body works lotions.

And That’s it. I know it may seem like a lot but these have become so effective in giving me the results I need. I have become used to this routine and like I said a few of these products are not used on a daily basis and some are once a week.

IF YOU USE ANY OF THESE PRODUCTS PLEASE ADVISE THAT THIS IS ONLY MY RESULTS AND THE RESULTS OF SOME I HAVE PASSED THESE TIPS TO. EVERYONE’S SKIN IS DIFFERENT AND SOME RESULTS MAY VARY. IF YOU START TO USE ANY OF THESE PRODUCTS PLEASE TRY A SMALL AMOUNT AND TEST IT OUT GENTLY FIRST AND SEE YOUR RESULTS FROM TESTING FIRST. HOWEVER, THE ALL NATURAL PRODUCTS SHOULD BE OK WITH MOST PEOPLES SKIN. IF YOU DO USE THESE PRODUCTS OR PURCHASE THEM PLEASE COMMENT BELOW AND KEEP ME UPDATED WITH YOUR ROAD TO SOFT SKIN.

A FEW ITEMS I BELIEVE EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE AS A SKINCARE ROUTINE ARE THESE:

OIL FREE EYE MAKEUP REMOVER

AN ALL NATURAL MAKEUP REMOVER FOR FACE

A WEEKLY FACE MASK

MY SECRET FACE AND BODY EXFOLIANT

A CHARCOAL FACIAL SCRUB

DRY SKIN: TEA TREE SCRUB

NORMAL/COMBO SKIN:BLACK SOAP OR A ZIT CLEARING SCRUB

A ROTATING/PULSING FACE BRUSH
