About Me


Welcome to my little piece of the net! My name is Nancy Valentino and I’m a vlogger/ blogger, mom and a loser….of 100+ lbs!  On this website you’ll find all things pertaining to beauty, makeup, and personal style. Read on to find out a little bit more about me and some of the things I’m passionate about…

In addition to being an avid makeup and fashion enthusiast,  education is something that is very important to me! I proudly earned a Master’s Degree in Psychology while raising my daughter and on a weight loss journey. I am the author of three eBooks, “Embracing the Change” (which outlines my 109 lb. weight loss journey) and “Maintaining the Change” (followup to Embracing the Change).

I run and maintain two YouTube channels, my beauty channel, StylishlySurreal  is a channel dedicated to all things beauty & makeup. Since I’m an Old Hollywood and Silent Film fan, I often incorporate vintage influences into both my makeup and personal style. My beauty channel is truly a unique and interesting blend of vintage & modern.

 In addition to my beauty channel, I run a healthy living channel, The Figure Friendly Foodie. This channel is focused on weight loss motivation and healthy (“figure friendly”) recipes. On this channel, you will find  my tips and tricks on eating delicious food that’s healthy and satisfying. I also, have a complete weight loss series dealing with topics such as loose skin and motivation during a weight loss journey.

In my spare time, I enjoy Pilates, reading and spending time with my husband, daughter and two dogs, a Labrabull named Kaylee & a Mal-Chi, named Oliver.
