Today I shared on RIVER CITY LIVE TV in sunny Jacksonville Florida some beautiful products that I discovered in NYC and some fashionable delights too. I love spring in NYC even though it isn’t acting like it nor showing signs of all it’s splendor. It is hard to believe there is yet another NorEaster TODAY! Mother Nature up north does not quite know what to do let the flowers bloom or just freeze.

Color Your World,GORGEOUS with color filled hues this Spring in beauty,fashion accessories and lifestyle trends.

Hot hues are really on trend in makeup,fashion and even food.

It is going to be quite an amazing and pretty SPRING.

NYC was filled with color from home decor,makeup and all things fashion. I so love window shopping and actual shopping on the streets of the city that never sleeps!

  • Makeup takes an even more color rich twist.SO MANY COLORS so little time!!!Even the finger nails. The new trend is wearing a different shade of nail polish on each finger. So fun!
  • Skin Care takes on a whimsical packaging and ingredients that offer instant skin glam.
  • Jewelry is stunning and color rich. Think rose gold,gemstones and pearls. Handbags are conversation pieces. Tassels take center stage in earrings,bracelets and necklaces.
  • Food is filled with color and I devoured the new and yummy ice cream hues and rainbow trend in bagels. My fav’ The Bagel Store. They ship yummy to your door!
  • So go ahead,get out of a rut and treat yourself to something new.Step outside your comfort zone and explore some new HUES. You might just discover a new and other side of  YOU!  COLOR outside the lines!photo RCL

Not Your Mama’s Eyewear

mom 3

I’m ALWAYS losing or breaking my glasses. I came across this chic line of quality eye wear AKA reading glasses and want to share. Inspired by the runways of Gucci,Valentino, Oscar de la renta and Dolce and Gabbana the styles are chic and on point.The brand touts they are not your mama’s reading glasses but they should be.

Meet Flutter Eyewear

The fun factor part about selecting and buying them is the paper doll template you cut out and get to try on your face  to test drive the style you are interested in. They also have a section where you select a style based on your face shape.

I love the reader style Clarice Little Black Dress with a red lipstick!

And don’t ya just love the darling names?

Oh and they even make sunnies! My fave is the style named Ayla sun Cognac Kyoto.

Now, I CAN take a walk on the beach looking for seashells or read a magazine and SEE yet protect my eyes and say no to wrinkles around my eyes from squinting too.

Oh and I almost forgot to tell you they come packaged in a gorgeous red box with a  carrying case and note card.

Check them out…oh and it just may be a great gift for MOM or Glamma this year.








Green is the new black

Sometimes you have to go to the basics and as I continue down the path of eating more clean,care even more about what I put on my face and BODY and love Mother Earth by recycling as much as I can.

I wanted a reminder to women that going green is beautiful. So, I am about to come out with a green lipstick hue to remind them.This fun hue stains the lips and puts you in a good mood too.

Whatever your emotion is…it will tell a story of your mood from deep pinkish rose to soft violet. Counting down to Earth day I think this lipstick is a perfect fit. GREEN LIPS photo 3-2017.JPGTake a walk on the green side. If you liked the mood ring …this is your thing!

PHOTO TAXI While window shopping back home on my way to meet friends for lunch I could not resist what caught my eye! Low on a shelf at a Fifth Avenue store I came across this sparkling cab find.

Window shopping is the BEST! Don’t even know the price just thought the purse was unique and nice. In New York you have to look up and down and all around. Not just straight ahead.

Thought you’d get a kick out of it too.

Tips Before You KISS Under that Mistletoe!

Red lips New years Eve

Getting ready to kiss tonight? Guys and Gals …Make sure it works out right.

Prep your lips for kissing with my sweet recipe!

  • Wash your lips with a warm washcloth.
  • Use a Honey & Almond scrub that you can find in the store. Or D.I.Y. and make one.if you don’t have the ingredients. Run your lips with organic brown sugar and coconut oil.Rub on your lips back and forth with your finger and leave on at least 3 minutes. Rinse well.
  • Brush your teeth with Supersmile toothpaste (A celebrity fave) or any other whitening toothpaste.
  • Floss your teeth yes floss and brush your tongue with a soft tooth brush.Bacteria does the Cha Cha on your tongue throughout the day.Keep your breath and gums fresh.You wanna be kissed and kissable don’t you?
  • Guys: Place a lip conditioner or lip balm on your lips guys. Hours before kissing so it starts to make your lips softer and look good.
  • Gals: If you want to kick it up a notch.Don’t just do a lip balm WEAR SOME COLOR.

Paint the town red. Bring out your sexiest outfit even if it is blue jeans and a sexy sparkly top.

You’re ready to toast the new year Hello and kiss under the Kisstletoe!

This is a unisex recipe.My husband loves it too.
