Make-Up Break Up!

I recently dropped my absolute favorite Laura Mercier eyeshadow on the tile floor and alas I thought she was gone for good. Gold Dust is a discontinued color… And then something happened that I consider to be a rarity these days –  I remembered something someone had told me. Yup. I did. My sister told… read more

Totally Chafed

The wind, the snow, the ice… It’s been one heck of a winter so far. My cuticles are cracked. The tips of my fingers are calloused. And the skin on my hands is perpetually dry and rough. I first heard about Weleda Skin Food on the beauty blog, Into the Gloss. It’s been a favorite of Tory… read more

Pearly Whites

Red Wine, Coffee, Chocolate, and Berries… All God’s gifts to our universe. Alas they sometimes leave a lasting impression where lasting impressions are very much unwanted. We all know the drill. A glass of red wine, and a top-off, and a top-off and a top-off… and voila! You have stained lips and tinted teeth. Eek!… read more

Wrinkles beware – Embryolisse has got their eye on you. This lightweight moisturizer absorbs quickly and smells heavenly. Its ever so subtle scent has just a hint of fresh flowers like gardenia and freesia. I swear by it, but don’t take my word for it. The hottest model around, Karlie Kloss says, “Embryolisse is where it’s at.”… read more

  With a new school year upon us Mama has to make sure she gets her face on in time for carpool. I keep it very simple during the day. Elixir, BB Cream, under-eye concealer, chubby stick, and blush. For nighttime I like to jazz it up a little bit more while still sticking to a… read more

Hot Lips

Lovin’ me some fuchsia lips these days… One can always blend into the crowd with subtle make-up and then *SHAZZAM* – you add pink lips and you become fabulous! Notice how I have selected images of women with different skin tones, different shades of hair, and different colored eyes. Truly this look can work on anyone…. read more

The Skin We’re In

We all remember those lazy summer days… I used to lube myself up in baby oil, get the Spindoctors cranking on my discman, and drag the folding lawn chair to the backyard. I baked under the hot sun while dreaming of how I was going to someday marry Luke Perry (aka Dylan McKay on Beverly… read more

Five Friday Favorites for Moms

y

To be a mother is to know great pride, disappointment, love, anxiety, and joy. It can be the best and hardest job on Earth. We try and toil – comparing ourselves to others – while also promising ourselves we will do it our own way. As I reflect on this Mother’s Day I realize my… read more
