There are few places so glamorous and close to home than the Yucatan in Mexico, commonly referred to as the Maya Riviera. And those who want to look their best and show off can get their picture taken in some of the most beautiful and interesting spots in the world. Get your picture taken with beautiful sandy beaches in the background, in the water surrounded by tropical fish and sea turtles or have a pyramid in the frame. You’ll look your best and be able to impress your friends just by visiting the great Maya Riviera.

Cancun is the place to start your exciting and fabulous vacation. The shopping, eating and night life are second to none. There are many stores to find you next great outfit and they, of course, specialize in summer wear. Come back home with the next great fashion. To impress your friends even more, go out at night to many of the world famous clubs that Cancun is known for. There are few places that can even rival the fun you can have with a night out on the town in Cancun.


After you’ve worn yourself out in Cancun and are looking for a place to relax, head south. You can take to the seas and visit Akumal. It’s the best place to go snorkeling in the Maya Riviera. Wear the bikini or swim suit you bought in Cancun and bring your camera. From the boat or even in the water you can get pictures of you with the many tropical fish and sea turtles that are all around this special spot in the ocean. Further out is great reef. It’s easy to find vendors who will set you up with a trip to these 2 great places.

Another great place to grab envious photos are at the ruins that are spread out throughout the Maya Riviera. The one you’ll definitely have to see is Chichen Itza. Get more photos of yourself in your new outfits from Cancun with this great pyramid in the background. With photos like these you’ll be able to show to your family and friends when you get back home.

But that’s not all. There are many other ruins that you can get pictures. If you’re more adventurous you can go out to Coba, another pyramid in Maya Riviera. And in addition to pyramids, there are many other structures and statues that are worth a visit.

Fashion is one of the great things about the Maya Riviera. Besides the photos you can take from any of the resorts in riviera maya mexico, you can also find new and interesting outfits in Cancun and then wear them when you take pictures on the great sandy beaches, in the ocean and at any of the many ruins that are part of this great area of the world.

Roses aren’t only beautiful to look at or good to smell, but they also hold secrets for healthier and smoother skin. So whenever you receive a bouquet, remember not to toss the dry petals away. Instead, keep them for your next facial session. You can definitely do this on your own at the comfort of your home. Here’s what you can do:

1. Boil a pot of water
2. Add 1 cup of dry rose petals in the boiled water and put your face above the pot to absorb the steam.
3. Do this for as long as you like, and just relax.

Afterwards you can regularly apply your facial rituals, like yoghurt or moisturizer. But I personally would let the steam stays for a while because I just love the natural scent.

The benefits you can get from rose petal facial:

4. Antibacterial.
Rose petals cleans and protects, soothes and moisturizes.

5. Sweet Fragrant.
Of course, we can’t forget the natural and sweet smelling roses. This will leave your skin not only fresh and young, but beautifully scented.

Do you have a passion for makeup and applying it in a way to make people look their absolute best? If so, then have you ever considered the possibility that you might be able to make a career out of it? Makeup artists and cosmetologists around the world are doing exactly that, day in and day out. Specifically, cosmetology refers to the practice of beautifying the hair, skin, and face. If you’re looking for a rewarding and creative career option, then you might want to consider enrolling in cosmetology school.

 Benefits of Beauty School
Cosmetology is one of those careers where you need to have not only experience, but licensing and/or certificates proving that you have the formal training and education necessary to perform your job successfully. Therefore, by completing beauty school, you can open up your career prospects to all kinds of new possibilities. From becoming a makeup artist to working as a dedicated hairstylist, the creative possibilities are endless. Plus, by enrolling in the right beauty school, you can enjoy focusing on the aspect of cosmetology that most draws your interest.

What to Expect
Of course, cosmetology school isn’t for everybody; there are some specific characteristics you’ll need to have in order to be successful. For starters, are you a self-driven person? You’ll need to be very self-motivated in order to do well in school and in your career, and you’ll also need to have a willingness to learn new things every day, making the absolute most out of your educational experience and studies. This may mean making sacrifices in other areas of your life with the knowledge that your hard work and dedication will pay off.

Furthermore, because beauty trends are constantly changing, you’ll also need to make sure that you’re adaptable and willing to continue your education—even after you’ve officially completed beauty school. By staying on top of the latest trends, you’ll have the best chances for success when it comes to impressing your clients down the road.

In terms of the logistics of cosmetology school, you should expect to spend between 1,500 and 2,100 in official training (depending on your state). Assuming you enroll in the program o a full-time basis, most cosmetology programs can be completed within just a year or two.


What You Can Do After School
One of the most popular jobs people end up with after finishing cosmetology school is that of working as a makeup artist; with such a position, you have the flexibility to decide whether you want to pursue a part- or full-time job with a salon, or if you want to work independently. Many cosmetologists eventually build up a large enough client base that they are able to work independently, finding their own clients and setting their own hours/schedule. As a makeup artist, the average salary is around $64,000, with the potential to make much more.

School Option
If you’re genuinely interested in a cosmetology program, the next step is to find the school that’ll be right for you. The best option is go with a school with a long history and track record of quality education. With Marinello’s cosmetology program, you’ll enjoy working in a hands-on environment and learn about everything from hair cutting and hair styling to makeup and nail care. At the end of the program, you’ll also go through salon management and state board training that’ll prepare you for a successful career in the field.

A career is cosmetology can be a very rewarding and lucrative, especially for creative types who love helping people look and feel their best. If you’re ready to take the next step, it’s time to consider enrolling in cosmetology school.
