Beauty Review: Beauty Society Skin Care

Woo-hoo for my 1st Beauty Review!

I like to consider myself a product junkie. Whenever I see the newest thing in a magazine or online, I am on the way to the store buying it. Did I need it? No. Will I use it? Not always. But I have to have it. So when Beauty Society followed me on Twitter, I had to know what it was all about. A few days later, Beauty Society was at my doorstep.

So lemme break it down for ya


Since this is an all natural product, the smell isn’t daisies and sunflowers. It resembles more of a Tea Tree Oil, and since I’ve used Tea Tree Oil for zits before, it doesn’t bother me. However, don’t be scared by it, it is not a strong scent at all. Out of the 3, this is the only one that actually had a scent to it. So how did I like it? I love it. After the first (and I mean very first time ever) use, I could tell a difference in the texture of my skin. It was soooooo soft. What I love most about this facial cleanser is that the pump pours out just enough for each use. (I tend to use TOO much so this was perfect for me). Also, it doesn’t dry out your skin like most acne products, so that was another bonus! After two weeks of using this cleanser, I noticed not only softer skin, but a MUCH clearer complexion. The old zits were clearing up quicker than usual and my skin tone was starting to become more even.

A+ for this baby.


LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS PRODUCT. I love exfoliating, and I try to do it as much as often. Because who wants nasty old dead skin cells sitting on your face forever? I sure as hell don’t. Unfortunately, my addiction obsession with exfoliating tends to dry my face out even more when used with harsh cleansers. This little guy is an exception. The itty-bitty-teeny-weeny beads gently scrub off any gross-nasty-dead-things hanging out on your face without drying it out. The recommended use is only 1-2 times per week and to my own shock, I found myself only needing it once a week.



The name says it all. It really does make your complexion immaculate. I must warn you, read the directions before use. Miss Big Shot over here decided to rub this alllllll over her entire face the first time she used it. Yeah, don’t make that mistake. But if you read the directions and only apply to trouble spots – you will fall in love with this serum just as much as I did. Just like the other two, it is not harsh [unless used incorrectly like I did] and it dries up all pimps over night. And just like the wash, the pretty little pump pours out just enough for each use.


So my take? Great line that I definitely recommend to anyone who is looking for a new skin care routine. If you suffer from acne like myself, the line I used works great. I would recommend purchasing a moisturizer as well. I didn’t and now I wish I had. Make sure to check them out here. For the hustlers out there, they do offer business opportunities –  CHA – CHING

Have you tried Beauty Society? What line did you try? What’s your take?

Food Review: Tucker Dukes Lunchbox


I am so excited to share Tucker Dukes Lunchbox with you! If you live in South Florida – this place is a MUST try! The chef, Brian Cartendo, has perfected southern comfort food, with a modern twist. He was also the winner of Food Network’s Cutthroat Kitchen! I stumbled upon this gem when they followed ME (@emilyahlbum) on Instagram and knew right away that I had to try it out. The bf & I decided to stop in for date night last Friday and we fell in love! Everything from the decor, to the service, to the food was spot on – surprising for a brand new restaurant. So when my parents asked me to come with them last night, there was no way I was turning down that offer!

Thankfully, this time I was able to get some pictures of their amazing food, meet co-owner, Jay Oakes, andddd learn the story behind Tucker Duke and his lunchbox! However, it’s not really his lunchbox…but Tucker Duke is Chef Brian’s 110-pound Great Dane Lab (and apparently, looks just like the dog in the lunchbox on their logo). Cute, right?

Now…the food!

For starters (or “snacks” as they call them), we had the Fried Pickles & Portabella Fries. I only tried the Fried Pickles, and they truly live up to their hype. Unlike most Fried Pickles, these were served spear style to keep the juice & flavor of the pickle, and boy did it! Sooooo good. If you love pickles, you’ll die for these…I’m not joking. (Side note – I have also tried the Mini Corn Dogs, which did not disappoint either)

Next came the burger – and I do not mean just any ol’ meat-cheese-ketchup-boring-blah burger. I had the Fido, which was topped with American & Cheddar cheese, pickles, fried onions, tucker sauce, and the house made ketchup. This was  the 2nd time I tried this one, and it will continue to stay my go-to burger. I absolutely love it. Not too greasy, not too big, and cooked to perfection. You can’t go wrong. For sides, the three of us split the regular Mac & Cheese, the Jalapeno Bacon Mac & Cheese and the Sweet Potato Fries. None of them let any of us down! I was very weary of trying the Jalapeno Bacon Mac & Cheese, because I don’t like to complicate simple things and the regular Mac & Cheese is amazing as is! But Owner Jay convinced me otherwise. It really was perfect. If you are scared of spice – do not be scared of this Mac & Cheese. It won’t hurt you, I pinky promise. The Sweet Potato Fries are topped with a cinnamon-sugar-salt mixture that is just perfect.
