I was at a party recently, when a handsome young gentleman smiled broadly at me and remarked that it was “nice to see a woman eat and drink.” I must confess, I was holding a slice of pizza in one hand, a Vampire’s Delight (a wickedly delicious vodka concoction) in the other. Looking around the […]

I don’t mind spending the big bucks on shoes or purses, but I draw the line when it comes to skin care. Of course, I’m not about to sacrifice having dewy, soft skin, but I’d like to think you don’t have to break the bank to get it. I always had a passion for cleansers […]

When I was a little girl I used to love playing with my dad’s glasses, pretending I was my third grade teacher or a high powered executive.

My obsession with beauty and skin care came to fruition while watching my mom wash with this and slather with that.

In a few short months I have a birthday coming up. No, it’s not the big one. But, I’m getting so close I can almost feel it’s hot breath whispering in my ear. I am holding onto my 40’s by a thread. When the day comes that I do turn 50 – I mean 49+1 […]
