Top Fashion, Fitness & Vegas Beauty Bloggers, Designers, Journalists, Influencers & Stylists
Beauty tips, fitness and fashion from the women experts in these areas. For the anniversary episode of the Glamour & Gains lifestyle and beauty podcast and in honor of International Women’s Day, I got together the top experts I could find on fitness, fashion and beauty. The Vegas beauty bloggers and business owners who are also the most inspiring, successful and fun.
I had them plan their #1 fitness, fashion and beauty tips in advance and made sure they were practical, realistic and helpful.
Normally my Glamour & Gains podcast episodes are 10-15 minutes long and audio only, but to get as many tips as possible and to share these amazing women with you we went live for almost an hour!
Why the name Glamour & Gains?
I’m all about the most feminine and flattering styles, highest heels, eyelashes, glamorous looks and lipstick. I’m also about always trying to grow and make personal gains in all areas of my life. So Gains is about fitness, personal growth, success, reaching and maintaining goals.
If you’re not growing, you’re dying!
Don’t worry if you missed the live edition and aren’t a reader. You can play the video above during your lunch break if anyone take those anymore? Or throw on the lifestyle and beauty podcast while doing your makeup, in the car, or at the gym.
We had a blast at the Vegas studio, as you’ll see or hear on the podcast. When women work together, magic happens.

Ali Eather @alieather alieather.com
Lawyer, Avid Traveler, 1st Bikini Ms Fitness Aus. 2019,Top 5 WBFF Fitness, Maxim Calendar Girl.
I met Ali when she reached out to me about being her WBFF and fitness competition posing coach. She’s one of the most self-motivated, dedicated fitness competitors I know. It’s not just about competitions and winning to her, ok, we all like to win but it’s about the journey and it’s a lifestyle for her.
Competing’s a complete head fxxk for want of better words and keeping your head in the game is as hard as the training and dieting itself. You’re hungry, hormonal, comparing yourself to everyone else, worried you’re not good enough, pretty enough, young enough…!
But a champions mindset and mental health applies to everyone and all areas of life not just athletes.
Mental Health Tip: Ali’s talking about the importance of and how to prioritize mindset and mental health, including a couple of her favorite books which I’m now in line to borrow to read:
The Champion’s Mind by Jim Afremow | Amazon
Amanda May @amandamaybeauty | AmandaMayBeauty
Permanent makeup, microblading, advanced skincare and training courses in Las Vegas, NV
Amanda and I met on the gram when she reached out to me about facials. It was Amanda who introduced me to the BB Glow treatment (watch the BB facial video). This facial gives you an instantly more even complexion, firmer skin texture and a brighter glow.
If you read my blog regularly, you know how many skincare treatments I’ve been trying recently as I refuse to age gracefully but I also don’t want to look like a science project.
Her beauty tip on this Glamour & Gains Podcast episode is all about getting the perfect eyebrows and her favorite products and tools to do it with.
She’ll be back on the podcast at the end of the month…I’m not sure what our topic is yet but check back to hear more from her.
Marcella Williams @thejuicestandard | Juicestandard.com
COO & Co-Founder of The Juice Standard
I’ve been a fan of the Juice Standard for a while (especially the fact that they use glass bottles and not plastic) and it’s pretty much the only way I can get my husband to ingest his greens.
Marcella is one of the 2020 ‘Top 40 Under 40’ Honorees and shares the benefits of juicing, a couple of her favorites juices, which ingredients will give you that glow from within and which will alkalize your body. Which I definitely needed the day after the podcast after cake and champagne, thanks Marcella for hooking me up!
Lisa Song Sutton @lisasongsutton lisa4congress.com
Congressional Candidate NV-04 | Entrepreneur | Forbes Writer | TEDx Speaker | Miss Nevada US 2014
Lisa’s actually one of my sister queens and has been a close friend for several years so you’ve probably seen lots of photos of her before either on here or Instagram as we’re always out together, supporting each others endeavors. That is, if you haven’t seen her on TEDx, Forbes, or one of her many TV interviews.
Oh and I did mention she has her Juris Doctor degree from University of Miami School of Law, started Sin City Cupcakes and is also co-founder of Ship Las Vegas, Elite Homes – Christie’s International Real Estate, and Liquid & Lace swimwear.
The way she approaches business, helping others and life is truly inspirational! Plus, she’s a ton of fun! The name for the blog and podcast came from one evening in my kitchen sat drinking French 75’s and business together as I wanted to revamp what was then ‘Fitness By Eve’ to be more than just fitness as that didn’t feel like me.
Her tip today is based on how to get the right mindset to frame your day, she explains more on the podcast and video.
I highly recommend checking out how she intends to make sure everyone has a fair chance to succeed and to fulfill their individual dreams.
Sarah Jenkins @blondabouttown | Blond About Town YouTube
TV Host | Model | SAG-AFTRA | NBC Evening Anchor | KSNB: 2017-2019 Morning Show Host
Sarah’s another friend from Instagram! She’s a pro when it comes to hosting and dressing for on-camera and events, so I knew she’d be great to have as a guest on the show to talk about fashion. Her styles always elegant, on-trend, flattering and feminine…a woman after my own heart.
She shares her fashion tips on finding your own style and more…
Nikolina Ivanova @glamsophisticated | Glam Sophisticated
Licensed Makeup Artistry Instructor | Glam Sophisticated Makeup Academy Las Vegas
Nikolina and I have recorded together before for my Vegas beauty blogger segment on Spill the Tea Live and once for this podcast and blog (10 Minutes To Better Skin). With everything she has going on right now, with the opening of her new Beauty Academy and being a makeup and beauty educator, who better to get some beauty tips from?
Equally impressive is how successful and business minded she is for someone so young (she’s under 30) and how humble and kind she is.
Nikolina’s sharing her top cruelty-free makeup, beauty and skincare tips for Spring with us.
Debbie Carroll @debbiecarrolldesigns debbiecarrolldesigns
Where do I start with this one?! Another great friend that I met over champagne at my house planning a charity gala. Debbie has the hugest heart when it comes to philanthropy and a huge passion for fashion. It’s not just any fashion, but ultra feminine, fitted, flattering styles.
Debbie’s designs are always super distinctive, you know when someone’s wearing a Debbie Carroll (normally me, that I’ve pinched from her wardrobe or custom ordered). The blue sequin jumpsuit I’m wearing for this episode is Debbie Carroll as is the white dress below.
Debbie’s sharing her fashion tips on styles, trends, colors and fits; she’s like me and talks fast so she’s giving you a ton of tips as well as sharing with us first what she’s going to be releasing next…
Stacey Gualandi @staceygualandi | staceygualandi
Emmy-winning television/radio host | Correspondent | Producer | Editor Deluxe Version Magazine
I’ve tried to condense her credits but you really need to go and read Stacey’s ‘About’ section on her website to really understand how accomplished she is and what a diverse career she’s had! It was reading that that I realized we have Y.A.S in common; we’re both certified Yoga and Spin instructors. I did my certification at Y.A.S Venice and taught in Downtown LA and she helped raise thousands for the YAS Spin-a-Thon for Think Cure…small World!
Stacey’s one of ‘the’ women about town; always attending and covering events. When you’re on the go as much as Stacey, well pretty much all of these women, and always need to look camera ready and fresh even after late nights and sodium, nutrition is the only thing that’s going to save you. Makeup’s great but it can only do so much. So what’s Stacey’s beauty secret?
Stacey’s sharing her top health and beauty tip: Celery juice! The what, why, when and how…
Andeen Rose Clark @hairbyandeen | ADD Hair and Makeup
I met Andeen about 7 years ago when I first started doing pageants. One of my friends referred me to her for hairstyling and she created fabulous styles for my pageants and pageant interviews.
We served together last year, fundraising as part of the Power in Purple group, which is a group of community leaders who are committed to raising awareness and funds for the American Cancer Society in Las Vegas and both won awards for our kicking cancer fundraising achievements. This woman knows how to fundraise and inspired all of us!
We also collaborate together in business with the Bridal hair, makeup and custom lipstick experiences we offer to bridal parties in Las Vegas.
Andeen’s cruelty-free haircare tips on the podcast revolve around hydrating your hair and maintaining color.
