Molton Brown Orange Bergamot Eau de Toilette, $65,

I don’t know what summer is like where you live, but this summer in Florida is the hottest ever on record. (Disclaimer: No records were checked in the writing of this blog post, but my personal wilt-o-meter has confirmed that it’s a bajillion degrees. At least. Which is pretty hot). Because it’s so hot, you’d […]

Best Skincare Products You’ve Never Heard Of

January 15th, 2016 by

Why are so many of my favorite products packaged in lavender boxes and bottles? I mean, my beauty product collection is legendary, but could companies actually be packaging their products to match my Art Deco bathroom? Thank you, world, for allowing my hoarding to look like decorating. Now let’s talk about skincare, which is a favorite subject of mine, because, […]

7 Simple Ways to Look Younger Overnight

September 6th, 2015 by

I’m not going to lie. I could use a little extra beauty sleep. Okay, a lot. Hours and hours, actually. Since that’s not going to happen, I need to take advantage of the precious few hours I do have, and make them count, beauty-wise. And that means so much more than just taking my makeup off before […]

How to Turn Back the Clock (without surgery!)

August 7th, 2015 by

Until now, my approach to aging could be compared to that bird that hides its head in the sand. Or a little kid plugging his ears and saying: “I can’t hear you I can’t hear you!” I ignored it. (But in a mature way.) If I felt young and looked young, I reasoned, then the […]

August 4th, 2015 by

I hear you loud and clear. Aging stinks, and you want answers. I feel your pain. Not literally, of course. Aging is years away for me. I’m a spring chicken. Okay, just a chicken then. Fine. I have chicken legs. Anyway, to fight the signs of aging I’ve developed a patented three-pronged anti-aging technique. For the […]

3 Fast Ways to Look Younger: Anti-Aging Week

August 3rd, 2015 by

Tonight, I had a chance to catch up with a dear friend, and we talked about how everything and nothing had changed since we met at 12 years old. Growing up as neighbors, we spent many hours discussing the princes we would marry (literal princes, with titles and castles) and the trips we would take. Now, […]

Great Legs in 5 Easy Steps

July 20th, 2015 by

My legs occupy about 5’ of my 5’2 ¼” frame. The rest is hair. That’s why I’m a little preoccupied with both. (I’ll be posting my cheap, quick curly hair routine soon – it’s groundbreaking!) Looking through my mom’s stash of photo albums recently, I came across a picture of myself before a dance recital. […]

5 Summer Beauty Hacks to Try Now

July 17th, 2015 by

Let me tell you a little thing about effortless beauty. It isn’t. All of those “easy” braids and “undone” hairstyles and natural glows flooding your Instagram feeds take work. Serious work. Looking gorgeous doesn’t just happen. Trust me, I know. Without regular maintenance, I’d look like one of those troll dolls at the end of […]

10 Best Safe Sunscreens for Kids

July 15th, 2015 by

Moment of silence: There are no longer any lazy ways left to apply sunscreen to your kids. With sprays considered dangerous and towelettes ineffective, the only method left to parents is an old fashioned lotion or cream. Sticks are effective and handy for the face, but, as Dr. Prystowsky mentioned in my recent post, The New […]
