I remember hearing about Drew Barrymore’s new makeup line when it first came out. Lucky for me, I had met the makeup artist who Drew worked with developing the line and was able to get info from her about the new products.

I’d say my signature fragrance over the past couple years has solidly been NEST Midnight Fleur – and I still continue to love it. But two new fragrances crossed my desk recently that might just move into the prime spot this winter. Those two are Bottega Veneta Knot Eau de Parfum and Estee Lauder Modern […]

I have to admit, I didn’t really know who Robin McGraw was (I googled it – Dr. Phil’s wife). But I did know one thing – I really liked this fragrance. Appears I am not alone, because it is currently sold out on HSN. I meant to tell you about the launch earlier this week, […]

As always, I am going to be perfectly honest. Before checking out the newest fragrance from Juicy Couture, I couldn’t help but cringe at the memories of my velour track suits circa 1999. Oh but how things have changed. I tested out this scent at a big event at the beginning of September and was […]

I’m having a moment. I get them every now and then. Thanks to my eight years living in California, occasionally the West Coast just calls my name.

I’m certainly not going to turn down a reason to relax. For some reason, this week I have been filled with sluggishness. I don’t know if it is the heat or just being a little worn down. Or the myriad of tech difficulties that plagued Monday and Tuesday. But either way, I am going to […]

By now, we all know how damaging the sun’s rays can be. But there is something about summertime that makes me crave a golden glow. Plus, skin-kissed skin disguises flaws. You can beat a little body makeup on the legs if you are wearing a cocktail dress. Or for that matter a bikini. Or shorts! […]

If there is one area of grooming that I am lacking in, it has to be body lotion. Embarrassingly enough, I remember an elementary school teacher reminding me to put lotion on my legs – definitely a requirement in my super dry childhood home of Denver, Colorado.

Now in the full swing of summer pool weather, I am guessing that most of us have bemoaned somewhat uneven skin and maybe some nasty cellulite. And if you are beauty/skin care buff like me, you also know that there is no permanent at-home treatment for this nasty little feature. There is good news though. […]
