So I know I told you I was going to take you on my journey with me. As soon as the weather changes, my skin begins to get dryer to the point of some rough patches. There is nothing more awkard and embarrassing than shaking hands and being self-conscious about the texture of your hands. This fall and winter I wanted to be proactive about reducing this problem. So I started with Eucerin’s Intense Repair Extra-Enriched Hand Creme. I was amazed at just how soft my hands were. Which got me to thinking, “what will the Smoothing Repair Lotion do for my body?” … (Read More)
So I was doing a bit of beauty shopping, when I fell in love (again). This time it was Laura Mercier’s Cocoa Suede nail lacquer! This is a bottle of chocolatey goodness to feast your eyes on (and I couldn’t take my eyes off of it). It’s a rich brown, and even on my brown skin it stood out. Perfect for fall, I’m hoping to pair it with a bold shade of blue (maybe Blue Boy from Chanel’s limited edition last year). Don’t you just love wearing two totally different polishes and still looking, well…polished!
This is weekend motivation for sure! An 81 year-old model, Carmen Dell’Orefice, strutted down the catwalk twice—yes, twice—during NY Fashion Week. Oh, to look this fabulous at 81! Check out her story in the video below. The fact that she still struts her stuff with poise and confidence at that age is enough for me. Aaliyah said it best, “Age ain’t nothing but a number.” I want to be like her when I grow up!
Hear Carmen’s story and watch her take the runway inside! … (Read More)
This fall a part of my personal journey is to commit to a skin care regimen. I’ve blogged a lot about setting goals and creating a playbook for success in my Monday Mojo series. So I decided it was time to share a part of my personal journey with you. I’ve been going to the dermatologist for many years and I have to admit that sometimes skincare can feel like a part time job. What I really want to do is get back to basics-I’m talking healthy, smooth, skin. To help me get that all-over glow I’m choosing Eucerin. This time around I not only wanted to develop a regimen but actually do some research and learn about the best practices and products to get healthy, glowing, smooth skin.
I reached out to Dr. Rosemarie Ingleton of Ingleton Dermatology in New York. Dr. Ingleton is a member of the Eucerin Skin First Council. Her unique approach to skincare has not only made her the go-to authority on general and cosmetic dermatology for the media, but has also earned her a devoted list of clients in the fashion, beauty and music industries. She took time out of her busy schedule to answer a few of my questions about developing a good skincare regimen, caring for the health of your skin, and the products that can help us achieve that overall glow.
September is in full swing! Even though my school days are long over there something about this time of year that gets me get up for learning something new and getting back to business. As boring as it sounds, there is something about structure and routine that really does make life easier. The best part about it, is seeing the results. So be determined to get your mojo going by shaking off those carefree, lazy days of summer and get back to business! … (Read More)
Fashion’s Night Out is upon us once again! Since it’s beginning four years ago, I’ve eagerly trekked into the city to take in the latest fashions, meet designers, sip cocktails, and take in the sights. But after last year-as much fun as it was-I was pretty sure this year I’d do something different.
It was right around the time that a Kardashian (not sure which one or how many) showed up on the same block that I was strolling along. That’s when the, already mob-sized, crowd in Soho quadrupled and got out of hand. Yikes! Suddenly this wasn’t so fashionable.
Venus and Serena posing for the NYTimes is pure fitness envy. The two of them could convince me to buy water in a can! In fact, I might even get a little work out hustle in before the day is out. … (Read More)
This past weekend I caught the remake of the ’70′s classic, Sparkle. This movie touches on so many of the issues that we face in relationships with our family, lovers and ourselves. But most notably, it’s the youngest sister, Sparkle (Jordin Sparks), that has trouble living up to her name. … (Read More)
