The land of Oz and Emerald Green

The color for 2013?  Pantone the color guru has chosen Emerald green.  This bold, exciting color will be all the rage for 2013.  From nails and makeup to dresses and accessories, this color will find it’s way into wardrobes way past St Patrick’s Day.  You will see Emerald green being incorporated into decorating as well.  Maybe […]

The perfect brow (part 2)

After trying many different places to shape my sometimes unruly brows, I think I just struck gold!  Benefit Brow Bar is my new go to place to get my eyebrows waxed.  I’ve tried both waxing and threading and I have to say I really prefer waxing.  In NYC, the brow bar is set up within the makeup counters […]

How I got to take my vitamins (at over 40!!)

I never took to taking vitamins.  I don’t know why.  Maybe I’m a late bloomer?  I just never saw myself taking a pill (or pills) religiously every day forever.  But alas, that changed!  Someone introduced me to vitamin gummies.  Yes gummies.  No they’re not shaped like bears, but usually shaped and taste like fruit and […]

Quick polish tip for girls on the go

Don’t have time to go to the nail salon?  Then do it yourself and save time with quick dry top coat.  But what happens if you don’t even have 5 minutes to spare?  I often find I do my nails and then wait, wishing I could do my hair or makeup in the meantime, but don’t dare […]

At home tightening mask

I’m a huge fan of homemade all natural masks.  Don’t get me wrong, I love getting pampered at a spa and getting a professional facial, but it’s costly and time consuming.  This is a simple make at home mask that takes 10 minutes. Tablespoon of honey Coffee grounds. Yep, that’s it.  Honey makes your face […]

The power of a professionally shaped brow

The perfect brow.  Whether you choose waxing, threading or do it yourself plucking, everyone is looking for the perfectly shaped eyebrow. I’m a big believer in having your eyebrows shaped by a professional.  Even if you go once.  I go every couples of years and then have my local eyebrow threader just follow the shape. […]

Polish for Summer 2012

Summer 2012!!  Time for the mani’s (and especially pedi’s) to shine.  So what’s new for summer 2012?   Neon:  Yep, the 80’s are back and so are neon colors.  We’ve been seeing neon clothes creeping back here and there and it’s made it’s way into nail polish colors.  Bright yellow, greens and oranges, even blues. […]

Making your clothes (and shoes) look new again

As we rejoice in our summer wardrobes, we may find some of our favorite clothes are a little worse for the wear.  Instead of throwing out that favorite top, why not spruce it up instead? Many of my tops and dresses develop pills on the sides from my shoulder bag rubbing while I walk to […]

Getting ready for summer…

Yeah!!  Summer is just about here and I’m looking to get a head start.  I’ve tried bronzers before but only the powder type, never the spray tanners.  Afraid of looking like Snooki, I did my homework and found the perfect one. Sephora’s own Tinted Self-Tanning Body Mist.  It’s the easiest, most natural looking color.  One […]
