The Perfect “Everyday Lip”

I’ve always been obsessed with lipsticks, lip glosses, lip stains, etc. and have developed quite the collection of them over the years. But it wasn’t until recently that I discovered my personal favorite “go-to” mix of lip products.

Healthy Snacks by Miss La Mesa 2014

There are many ways I like to prepare to compete in a pageant, especially physically. Being “in shape” for a pageant does not mean you have to lose a bunch of weight or barely eat. It just means that you take care of yourself and live a happy and healthy lifestyle. Being a Nutrition major at SDSU, I have learned many healthy recipes that taste amazing and are also good for you! Here are a… Read more »
