Triana Miami Review*

I received Triana Miami’s Vitamin C+ Cream and Blended Seaweed and Rose Hip Cleanser to try out for you guys and let you know what I thought so here we go!

What they say: our skincare line has a few simple rules.  We use naturally derived ingredients that are tried and true and processed as little as possible to remain rich in nutrients, vitamins and antioxidants.  Alpha hydroxys, peptides, squalane, seaweed extract, vitamins and arnica have been proven to reduce fine lines and inflammation, leaving skin looking healthy, youthful and radiant. They also do not test on animals.

Triana Miami is the sponsor of tonight’s #USblogger chat on Twitter that I host every Tuesday at 8:00 PM EST! Tonight you will have the chance to win both of these products by participating in the chat! Set your alarms and I hope to see you on Twitter tonight! Check out our invitation below!

I actually only got this a few days ago but I’m thinking of trying out the Vitamin C+ cream on my stretch marks so I will for sure keep you updated on that part but I have to start out by saying both of these products and I assume the rest of the line seem like very high end spa products to me which I love! All of the products are extremely affordable but really give you spa quality. But now onto the products!
The Vitamin C+ Cream I feel like is the perfect everyday moisturizer, not only does it moisturize it also helps repair damaged skin, improves texture, firms and tones skin. It’s like an all in one product and seriously when you get that many benefits you cant go wrong. It also smells so light and fresh and isn’t overwhelming which is one of my biggest things when it comes to face products so this and the cleanser are perfect for me!
The Blended Seaweed and Rose Hip Cleanser is the perfect everyday cleanser! I would highly recommend this for anyone looking for a high quality cleanser at an amazing price. My favorite thing about this was that you could actually feel it working; you know its getting sudsy and actually cleaning your skin where some cleansers aren’t like that. This is just the perfect everyday cleanser and that’s all I can say, its just perfect!

I would highly recommend both of these products for everyone! Every skin type, every age, basically just everyone and for my #USbloggers you have the chance to win both of these products tonight at the chat! DON’T FORGET!

Anything You Can Do We Can Do Better!

Ever since my blog redesign I have had tons of questions as to whether I was still on Blogger or if I changed over to something else so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to write why I am still Blogger and why I love it.

Lets just start this off by saying, started from the bottom now I’m here. I started out with the simple basic blogger template, basic settings and nothing super fancy and look where I have come. Not only does design tremendously help your blog but I have found it’s gotten me motivated to improve my writing and photography to go along with my beautiful design. Myself and many other bloggers are firm believers in the fact that if you are starting a blog why would you not consider Blogger? Is it because Wordpress or other platforms are more popular? Do you think other platforms have more to offer? In my opinion I could not be more pleased with not only Blogger overall, all of the Google tools to help you manage your blog, and the amazing customization factor. I have now been blogging on Blogger for over two years and have never once had a single issue with ANYTHING! I also got some of my Blogger bloggy friends to comment on why they love Blogger and just some overall thoughts they have so here they are!

"With Blogger, all income I make stays in my pocket!" - Kathe

"On Blogger I don't have to worry about my site being down or updates messing up my site." - Hilda of

"As a designer I like that I can have more control over the coding and customizing than installing plugins to do the work for me. I enjoy the nitty gritty and satisfaction of action and result of working directly with the code." - Rebekah

"I like that I am not nickeled and dimed for everything, I have more control and there is less that can go wrong so my site is reliably available to readers." - Melissa of

"Plugin's crash. I work for a marketing company and we have a girl that manages websites for our clients. I see more issues arise with updates and changes. Luckily, she is smart about it and SHE IS getting paid, to stay up to date. These constant updates and changes are hard to keep up with for a busy person like myself." - Barbie

"I'm cheap and terrible at coding. I'm also a control freak and extremely impatient. All that adds up to needing a platform I can tweak at will myself." - Lisa

"Blogger means I have more time for actual blogging since I spend less time arguing with my host, updating plugins and I know my readers won't get any downtime. It also means I make a much higher profit." - Kristy of ‪

"It was free and easy...sorta like me" - Kirby

"Blogger allows me to focus on my readers and what they want to learn, instead of on the technicalities of maintenance of a blog. Blogger lets me be free to write." - Kristy of

"Someone offered me a year's free hosting if I switched. I gave it serious thought - *would* I switch if it were free? I ended up saying that it wasn't worth it. I have zero downtime, never even have to think about hackers because the smartest people in the world handle my security, everything integrates seamlessly with all the other Google apps, I've never once had to "update my plugins" or have one crash and destroy my site, and I would just love to have so much traffic that I crash Google's servers. Blogging is easy and I just have to worry about writing my best content. Best hosting in the world, and the fact that it's free is a bonus. I'd pay to use Blogger, if it came to that." - Marie

These are just a few comments I have received from friends who use Blogger. Not only have I met an amazing community of bloggers on Blogger I have never once faced an issue, I have managed to start off my blog very simple and work hard to get it to where it is today and I could not be happier! If you ever consider starting a blog I would put Blogger on your list of platforms to check out for sure, I am also more then happy to help any friends who are just starting out and need help! And one more thing, PEACE LOVE BLOGGER!

PS I have a very exciting Twitter chat and matching blog post happening both on Tuesday, so be sure to be following me on Twitter and check back here on Tuesday for my blog post! See you then beauties!
