Weekend Beauty


I love the weekends. This is my time to relax from a long week and just enjoy my family and alone time. Nick is away at work most Saturdays but we always spend Sundays together. This Sunday for Father's Day, I have the absolute best surprise for him and I can't wait to show you!

If you saw my last video, I left out the products that I used. I am submitting this video for the Pacifica Muse contest so I wanted to be sure that I didn't speak of any products unless they were for that brand so I listed them below. I hope you understand.

St Ives Apricot Scrub

Dark brown pencil
Foundation True Match W7
Maybelline Big Lash Mascara
L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara
Milani Lipgloss in Mauve Fetish
Wet n' Wild Fergie To Reflect Shimmer Paletter

Apple Spice Whipped Shea Butter by Gypsy Moon Kisses (tell her Nina sent you!)

Be sure to watch the video and leave me a thumbs up! I really want to place for the next round in the contest. Thanks so much!



May Favorites


The faces I make when I film LOL.

BUT there is something about slick edges that just make a sleek bun look....sleek....

I decided to wash my hair and blow out my hair afterwards. I know my hair is growing because my ponytail gets fuller and fuller. Right on target for my hair goals!

If you saw my latest video, you know I showed how I get my baby hairs to lay down and I shared a few of my favorites for the month. Check out the products below!

Motions Shine Enhancing Pomade
Iaso Emu Oil
VS Pink Jasmine & Fluffy Vanilla Souffle & Spray
C. Booth Almond Dry Oil

How To Get Rid of Under Eye Bags


Sleep is so hard to come by these days with summer vastly approaching. I have been working, working and working some more. My skin has suffered from it and I have had dark circles under my eyes due to my lack of sleep. 
I guess that's what happens when you decide to be a working mom and wife then add in trips and business and you have a crazy mix of madness. BUT I won't complain because I am blessed to be able to live and live vicariously.
My newest video is up and I'm showing you how to get rid of those dark circles and under eye bags. I figured it was due time for me to get a video out after being gone so long. It actually felt good to be missed. 

Also, I'm using #cocoanina on social media. Let's connect. Show me your beauty and fashion favorites. 

You guys are the sweetest. XX
