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.

Jet setting for Beauty & Food

I am ready to share my recent finds in WONDERFUL Chicago. Guest speaking at the International Esthetics Cosmetics and Spa show is always an honor and my pleasure. But playing in a city I travel to is always a JOY. I love to discover new hot spots and to visit my fave places I continue to go back to.STAN'S

Welcome to Donut Heaven! Stan’s Donuts is an awesome donut place I fell in love with. While I love Do-Rite donuts and will never stop. Stan’s Donuts and staff  was the best! For almost 50 years Stan has crafted some of the world’s best donuts and started in Los Angeles. So many choices so little time!!! And they are ginormous!Don’t let the name fool you they have bagels and so many other yummies too.Including a Dirty Chai Tea! I love the name. Don’t you?

Next I had to stop at Ming Hin in Chinatown for DIM SUM …I ordered an array of fabulous delights from dumplings, to shrimp to Chow Fun. I did not order the tough bird staring at me on the menu. Although it was tempting to TRY.

I PIGEON

I always go back to Merz Apothecary for old time pharmacy and beauty finds and for a drink at the Palmer House.So tres chic.

I adore shopping the Magnificent Mile with all the amazing stores but  I love to go downtown on State Street that great street with mom and pop shops and eateries. I love a store called Agaci for fashionable finds.Nordstrom Racks there too.

The beauty show was filled with energy and mystical crystals. I got a Chakra reading by the master Linda Bertaut. She said I am SUPER-CHARGED with lots of energy!!! But warned me to watch out for burn out.I guess it is all about moderation isn’t it? Visit: http://www.chakralicious.com for more info.

Korean beauty is still trending and there is beauty from the sea with Repechage skin care.

I discovered some more fun beauty things. Stay tuned for my posts.

Oh and its almost time for MY Spring Beauty Giveaway! Come back and see how you might win and score.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How to …Clean Your skin!

Who doesn’t want gorgeous healthier looking skin in the new year? 

This week on my beauty & lifestyle report on TV on NBC 12’s The Chat  at First Coast news station (see my video) I  shared with the viewers a  simple skin care routine. I find women use far too many products on the face and that can cause a traffic jam on the skin…with not so pretty results. 

Chat logo3

Here is what you really need to do to jump start your way to the skin you've dreamed of!
 
By a starter kit,try a free sample from inside a magazine,buy small sizes to TEST drive products first!
Keep it simple! Using expensive skin care doesn't make it any better. Experiment and see what brands
work for you!
 Daily AM and PM
  • Clean
  • Toner/ skin Freshener
  • Hydrate
  • Protect/sunscreen (daytime)

For your eye area:

  • Eye gel or cream

For Your Face (not eye area) this is a MUST.

    • EXFOLIATION is key and is essential to refresh,plump up and renew collagen! 
      This is THE most important thing you can do for your skin at least every 7 -10 days.

    • Sometimes that may be 2 different types of masks. 
    • One for the T-zone which is the forehead,chin and nose and one for dry cheeks!
    • Lastly NEVER go to sleep with makeup on! 
    • It ages your skin faster and you will wake up a hot mess!

A Pretty Yummy D.I.Y….

So can I mention how truly crazy busy I am especially this time of year? I know you are too…

I so wanted to post but my retail business has us helping Santa 8-10 hour days!!!

We are shipping glam galore. But I wanted to post something on my blog timely that you might want to make or do with your daughter,grand daughter or sister.

I truly LOVE  to D.I.Y. over the holidays especially. They make perfect gifts for YOU or for someone else! This Candy Cane Kisses lip gloss recipe can be made with traditional candy canes and with Jelly Belly flavored candy canes.They are so colorful and yummy!

What you will need is:

1 CANDY CANE

1/4 cup of fresh organic coconut oil (Or you can use Vaseline)

Simply smash the candy cane on the kitchen counter.

Put the above a few pieces of candy and a scoop of coconut oil in a microwaveable bowl.

Place in a microwave and melt them both.

Stir well.

Pull out and let it cool on the counter but before it hardens…

Scoop the two up and place in a small  jar.

What you’ll have is an awesome yummy candy cane FLAVORED lip gloss.

*FYI if you prefer to make a peppermint balm infused with a stronger flavor of peppermint add a drop of food grade peppermint oil.I love adding a few of the smashed pieces inside.Fun to look at and festive.

The coconut oil feels amazing on the lips.And softens the lips. The delicious refreshing mint or Jelly belly flavors and colors make it even more fun!

Enjoy!

I hope you are enjoying the beauty of the HOLIDAY season. Take time to have some fun!
