Beauty: Summer Nails

I am not a manicure girl. I get way too upset when I chip my nails within 24 hours of getting them done. That being said I like to keep my nails short and every so often I splurge on a new bottle of nail polish and paint them myself. I do just one coat… read more

Every now and then we all need a little fashion inspiration… The Met Gala has become synonymous with the most important fashion event of the year.

All Natural Skincare Favorites

As the dry winds drift off to sea and the humidity returns I find my skin is completely schizophrenic. I know that in a few months I will be reaching for a lighter moisturizer but for now, on the tail of a week in the sun for spring break, my skin is flaky and dry…. read more

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

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
