This fall it’s all about the burgundy

  I have a confession to make: if it didn’t make me look like a total vampire, I’d wear deep burgundy lipstick every day of the week.  In fact right this minute I’m wearing OPI’s super foxy Honk if you love OPI on my digits, a deep sultry burgundy if there ever was one.  I save the burgundy lips for serious rock and roll or a truly dark restaurant, but it’s time to bend the rules because this fall it’s…

Not your mom’s pregnancy style

  Let’s face it, pregnancy can make fashion a nightmare.  My first go-round I wore flower tunics with Peter Pan collars and weird, heavy Dr Marten sandals.  My second time at the pregnancy rodeo I alternated between my super stylin’ mu-mu and a hospital gown.  Sometimes I wore flip flop sandals when I got super fancy.  These days maternity fashion is a whole thing; sexy high end jeans have maternity lines, and designers have maternity pieces in addition to their…

DIY mist for beach + pool

DIY mist for pool & beach

I don’t know where you live but where I live, it’s summertime, Will Smith style.  I live for warm weather, pool time, dipping my toes in the ocean, hot sunny days outside and pedicured toes in the sand.  The trick with all this hot weather business is keeping your cool, at least a little with sunscreen, iced drinks, cool mists, sunhats, sunglasses, the works.  But I don’t want to get carried away and miss out on all the good stuff…

The secret to amazing looking skin

The secret to amazing skin

I don’t need to tell you I’m obsessed with facial care.  I whip up homemade beauty recipes at least once a week: yogurt face masks, carrot facials, you name it I’ve tried it.  I’ve also tried practically every product on the market promising to make me 17 again.  Hint: I’m not going to be 17 again. Ever. For a few years now I’ve had the Clarisonic in my sights thinking it’s exactly what I need, the secret to amazing looking…
