The Beauty of NYC

IMG_7733r Candy Girl Collection…Is that there are all kinds of people,food and a fun fast paced life. I love the electric energy and hustle back home in NYC.

Last weekend New York got even more beautiful when the ladies and gentlemen in the business of beauty came from all over the globe for the one and only International Beauty Show (hair and nails with a touch of makeup),The International Esthetics, Cosmetics and Spa Conference (skin, makeup and wellness) They came to see …What’s New, What’s Hot and What’s Next. I was asked to guest speak again. What a great class. Seeing spa and salon owners sitting at the edge of their seat ready to learn something new and to hear what I have to say too is wonderful. I so love teaching business owners and professionals like these.

The hair show is a step on the wild side. Fantasy meets fun equals latest trends. The spa and wellness side is filled with latest skin care, skin tech tools, anti-aging and wellness.

This Spring 2013 is an anything goes kinda season. COLOR is everywhere! Color in hair with dye and with hair chalk like we played with chalk on the sidewalk when we were kids the hair is chalked with fantasy colors that wash out. Colorful shades to dye for!

SKIN IS SO IN and skin care is #1 if you want your makeup to look flawless…try skin care products with new ingredients like pearl power,bamboo,caffeine,argon oil,shea butter and jojoba to name a few. Clarisonic sonic cleanser is still rocking the skin care industry.

Nails, fingers and toes take center stage! Choose from shades like cotton candy, lovely lilac,light gray,pure white,goldfinger,silver,coral and all shades of green to blue! There are beads,stones and crystals added. The nails are like works of art. Truly NOT your grandma’s nail polish!

MAKEUP is both pretty and pretty wild!There are a rainbow of shades to choose from to brighten up your eyes and define them too.Eyeliner comes in all forms from gerl liners, to liquid pen liners.The smoky eye is more colorful and not only black and the cat eye is colorful too.

Want long rapidly growing lashes? Try Rapid Lash they say you’ll have lush lashes in no time.

Mascara TUBES are still in and give a soft and natural lash look.Not spider girl eyes.

Paint your pout with HAPPY shades of all things pink and flirty coral shades.LIPSTICK has never been hotter.Gloss is still shiny fun and Lip Tars with rich pigments add mega rich color to the lips. Lip stains rule!

Speaking of lips…you can’t have a supersmile and sexy lips without Supersmile toothpaste. It whitens and brightens your teeth to let your gorgeous lipstick shine through.Dental care is just as important as your lipstick!

COLOR is alive and kicking in fashion too! I shopped till I dropped and window shopped the famous Barney’s New York, Henri Bendel,Bloomingdale’s,Macys,Saks Fifth Avenue,Bergdorf’s and the small sweet boutiques all over the city. If you haven’t been to NYC and only watched the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade on TV…you MUST add it to your list of things to do and places to see!

Well, what are you waiting for? Grab your purse and get going.Shop on and color your faces,fingers and toes with some FUN! Find something fashionable in a new mint,coral or blue sea shades and ENJOY!

I’m back from NYC and on WordPress!

I’m sorry I have been up to my lips in beauty and FUN. Not in the sun but in the one and only Manhattan.My home, my playground,my work and time with my family.
It’s been on a whirlwind of beauty and fashion. one of the reasons I went to attend a beauty event for women and men in the cosmetics industry. I sniffed,sprayed,lathered and played in beauty.The cocktails,cosmetics and edible beauty cookies all tickled my tongue and made me swoon.There are so many new beauties out there!

I also was on a buying trip for my candy shoppe of fashion,beauty and unique gifts! Not an easy task! Especially since the snow came down,turned to slush and I got soaking wet and it was freezing.

I shopped until I dropped in the one and only Macy’s 34th Street Herald Square where I once worked I fell in love with the Marilyn Monroe fashions and tribute to all things Marilyn! See the windows I peeked at? TOO sexy! LOVE window shopping too.

Bloomingdales,Henri Bendel,Barney’s, Saks Fifth Avenue,the Container Store and more…New York City is far from a bore. I have so much more to share with you. Stay tuned.

Tomorrow I am a guest chef at the Salvation Army Celebrity Chef Tasting Luncheon here in Jacksonville Florida. Can’t wait to serve my chosen side dish to hundreds of people coming out for a beautiful cause.I love to cook and make-up! If you live in Jacksonville tickets are available at the door.

I’ll continue the above and so much more. Bear with me…I’m kinda exhausted~
