National day(s) of complete diet obliteration ...also known as "the holidays," is almost upon us.
As much as I am looking forward to unlimited pumpkin pie and stuffing, I know that beginning the day after Thanksgiving, all I am going to want to do is detox.
This year I am one Read more
I partnered with AVEENO® on this post. All opinions are 100% my own. I participated in the #AveenoDailyChallenge for three weeks.
For the last three weeks I participated in the #AveenoDailyChallenge using both AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Body Wash + AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Lotion. The goal was to follow a daily Read more
I'll be honest, I was not very familiar with the world of cosmetic ultrasound treatments when I decided to try the Mira-Skin Ultrasound device.
Upon doing my research, I learned that ultrasound is a non-surgical/non-invasive treatment that counteracts the effects of time and gravity on your skin. Ultrasound uses the body's Read more
Although I absolutely love this time of the year with the brightly colored leaves and crisp fall air, I dread it at the same time. It seems all of my time is spent trying to prep all the livestock for the winter, insulating the house, cooking and freezing all Read more
Toner is one of the biggest misunderstood skin care products out there.
And to be honest, at one point when I was younger, I also believed some of these myths. What about you?
1. Toner is a cleanser.
This one bugs me the most. I've read blogger reviews where the person clearly Read more

Fusion of Color Cosmetics is a mineral makeup line of products aimed at leaving your skin looking flawless without appearing like you are trying too hard. And I think you know what I mean…call it ghosts of pancake makeup past.
They offer a wide variety of mineral makeup from concealers and correctors to finishing powders, eye shadows, blush, etc. I also loved that for some of us still set in our ways of press powder and cream concealers…they offer that too. Their fall palette of colors are gorgeous!Â Working Girl and Too Cool are beautiful.
Yesterday I had the pleasure of going backstage at the Chris Benz fashion show to talk with him and Daniel Martin regarding their collaboration for Lancome‘s 5th lipstick in their POUT-A-PORTER series aptly named “Chris & Tell.” This coral colored lipstick will be available Spring 2010, but Lancome is already accepting names for the waiting list at their upper west side boutique.
CHANEL has a new liquid lipstick coming out in October called Rouge Allure Luminous Satin Lip Lacquer ($32). It is said to be highly pigmented and provide a patent-like shine. As soon as I saw this lipstick, Robert Palmer’s video “Addicted to Love” popped into my head…
It will be available in eight shades: Santal (Nude), Ming (Nude Rose), Phoenix (Candy Pink), Mandarin (Coral), Dynastie (Pink), Coromandel (Red), Dragon (True Red), Imperial (Deep Rose)
Available at www.CHANEL.com, select CHANEL boutiques, and department and specialty stores.
I very rarely, if ever post a press release in its entirety on my blog. However, I know many of you are Mad Men enthusiasts (all I have to do is watch my Twitter-stream on a Sunday night!) and I felt this interview with Mad Men Makeup Department Head, Lana Horochowski, who uses MAC Cosmetics on the set, was a really fantastic read.
Q: Youâ€™re the new department head at Mad Men for Season 3, will you be making any changes to any characters makeup?
As I sit here on this August afternoon shivering my behind off because it is only 59 degrees (!) I am reminded that in the next few weeks it’ll be time to start wearing fall colors. I was looking at Prescriptives website today and found some great products to give you a jump start on fall makeup. So enjoy and sip some hot chocolate along with me!
With Rimmelâ€™sGlamâ€™Eyes Lash Flirt Mascara, I felt like I had the longest lashes! I probably only swiped each set of eyelashes two or three times and I could already feel a difference. I went away on vacation for about a week and this mascara was great for touch-ups and it was nice to have it with me on the airplane, too. I could just whip it right out, apply a few swipes of this mascara and it felt good as new.
You know, my lashes felt so flirty, you could almost feel the wind they were making every time I blinked. Theyâ€™re like fans! Read more
Stila Mango Crush Lip & Cheek Stain has become my latest Summer beauty crush, and I think you’ll discover the same when you decide to try it for yourself– trust me, this is a must-have!
A little confession: I’m a full-face makeup girl (primer, foundation, powder, blush, multiple eye shadows, liner, mascara– you get the idea). Yes, everyday I go through my routine, and it’s just a habit to apply everything. In my defense, during the Summer months I choose more season-friendly colors that will withstand the heat, and never, ever do I look like I just stepped out of a Vegas stage show.
As we all know eyebrows can dramatically change your look and enhance your appearance when shaped correctly. Ideally it is best to have your brows professionally shaped. But on a daily basis your brows need to be kept up in between waxing and shaping sessions. The best way to do this is with a brow kit. There are plenty of brow kits out there. Our favorite kits include some kind of gel or shaping wax, a highlighter, and also a powder or pencil to fill in the shape… Read more
I’ve tried out the original LashBlast when it first came out, and while I wasn’t too impressed at first, I eventually warmed up to it. If you are anything like me, then you are endlessly searching for “the one,” that holy grail of mascara. Is CoverGirl LashBlast Length the one? Read more
