Heroes and Zeros

I really try to stay on the sunny side of life, and when I encounter something I don’t like I simply chalk it up as a lesson learned, make a note of it, and move on.  In that vein I try not villify products on this blog because sometimes just because it doesn’t work for YOU doesn’t … Continue reading

How not to look like a lizard

This time of year when it starts to get colder and colder and colder still, my skin really starts to dry out and look a little my friend Chuck here – It’s not the end of the world but it is annoying.  Lizards are cute but I don’t want to look like one.  So, here are … Continue reading

Back in the saddle again

Hey folks! Sorry I have been missing in action the last month but please be assured that this blog is still alive and kicking. I have been writing, I just haven’t had chance to post much what with a new job, the holidays, getting sick and a bonus trip to Las Vegas. It’s been a crazy two months, but now that is … Continue reading

I have been hunting around for a new moisturizer to replace my Kiehl’s Ulta Facial moisturizer.  I love me some Kiehl’s but I think it’s a good idea to mix it up every once in a while. The criteria – I like my moisturizers to be lightly scented or unscented and pretty basic.  I am just looking for something to moisturize and not break … Continue reading

Awesome Product Alert!

Awesome Product Alert!

Revlon came out with a product this year that I think is noteworthy and amazing – the Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain. Traditional lip stains usually leave me a little cold, probably because I find them to be drying and that I might possibly have a lip balm addiction.  I just can’t believe lip balm … Continue reading

Businessladytime!

This week is total businessladytime (a phrase my friend Molly likes to use and that she got from Aliya Bonar) because I am preparing to go down to San Antonio for client meetings.  I have been plotting all week what to wear on my trip and which sort of beauty products to bring that will be not only professional … Continue reading

DIY Manicures

DIY Manicures

Manicures are not really my thing.  I could get a pedicure every day for the rest of my life but for me manicures go on the “meh” list.  Once in a blue moon I will get a manicure but they  never last more than a few days. I am also spectacularly untalented at putting nail polish on myself, so I have … Continue reading
