DeVita Natural Skin Care: Lipstick Without the Ick

I’m not big on New Year’s resolutions. I figure if you want to do something…don’t wait…change it now! That said I couldn’t help but make a few. In 2013 I want to start running outdoors, I want to make it to a 9pm Barry’s Bootcamp class (I’m just curious to see the kind of crowd […]

Sometimes good things can come out of bad situations. On a recent weekend trip, I was annoyed to find that I had forgotten my moisturizer. After rummaging furiously through my cosmetic pouch, I found a sample of this serum. The little jar just said Immaculate Complexion Serum on it, so I wasn’t really sure what […]

Neither were they, but they know which products work. Tatcha will help you obtain perfect skin with the secrets of the geisha. I am now addicted to Tatcha […]

Arcona Magic Pink Ice and Estée Lauder Perfectionist Wrinkle Lifting/Firming Serum: Face the Fight

This week, one of my best friends was diagnosed with Stage 2 breast cancer. I was with her a couple of days ago, and she told me feel the lump, so I would know what to look for when I do my monthly self-exams. She is a beautiful woman with two kids and a devoted […]

Chanel Spring/Summer 2013 Show: From Lagerfeld’s Floor to the Grand Palais

When offering up inspiration to Peter Philips, the Creative Director of Chanel Makeup, for the Spring/Summer 2013 Ready-To-Wear Show, Karl Lagerfeld said only one word: shine. With that, Philips created a fresh-faced look for his models, whose eyes and lips were boldly brought out with shimmering color and texture. “The inspiration was actually the floor […]
