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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Very interesting facts on ingredients in all things Beauty!

I couldn’t have said it any better. Read on.

If there’s one thing beauty lovers know (and, who are we kidding—beauty lovers know approximately everything), it’s that there are huge (like, Grand-Canyon-levels huge) discrepancies between American beauty products and foreign beauty products—specifically, the vast number of ingredients allowed in US formulations compared to the incredibly restricted formulations of beauty products overseas. And when it…

Want to get a good nights sleep and wake up with better looking hair and skin too?

ME too! I discovered at a spa show an awesome pillowcase! It truly protects my hair and face.

Made of the highest quality 100% pure satin this luxe ultra-smooth for hair and anti-aging is my nightly beauty secret. I have always slept on a cotton pillowcase.BUT  not anymore!!!

Available in two sizes standard and king.It is like a SPA for your face!

Benefits of sleeping or napping on satin:

Soothing for the skin.

Protects delicate facial skin.

Dermatologist recommended.

Smoother than cotton.

Preserves hair breakage.

It even preserves blowouts.

I love the Wine Country Collection as I am in love with Napa Valley and all things wine Colors include:Vintage Rose,Pinot Greige, Zinfully Blue! All gorgeous hues.

Created by a woman of course. Dale Janee.

Another unique bonus is the built in secret pocket!!!

You can put some calming lavender,dried rose petals,a sweet treat or tuck in a LOVE note to your sweetie.Since I work on the road lots…I love leaving a message for my husband.

Quite unexpected and a lovely idea built into a pillowcase.Don’t you think?

Treat Yourself and Sweet Dreams darlings!

Dim Sum …tiny bites of exotic deliciousness!

photo DIM SUM 2016If you are looking for an exotic brunch in NYC this is it! Your new spot to dine!

It is called Joy Luck Palace and it is on 98 Mott Street in NYC.

Chicken feet,Beef short ribs,shrimp dumplings,pork steamed dumplings,taro root,Chinese like potatoes and more oh my. I had to try almost one of everything!

Ladies push metal carts around filled with tiny bites of exotic delights…including sweets.I’ll never forget the first time my husband experienced it. You should have seen the look on his face. If you haven’t been you point to what you want to try and eat and they serve it to you.Most do not speak English or speak broken English and it is hard to know what they are saying in Chinese.

Oh what a fabulous time I had (they seat you with other people not your own table) I was seated with women who were around 80 years young doing what we do best… Girl Talk but spoken all in Chinese.I don’t speak Chinese I speak English and Polish. They sipped hot tea like it was a great glass of wine!

After the meal they nodded goodbye and went on their merry way fed and happy.

It was a lovely sight to see…I will be there one day.

If you are ever in NYC look them up. they are fairly new and this location used to be The Grand Harmony but now has been renovated,new chefs and new and even better dim sum…which I did not even think was possible!

As I have told you before I love to cook,eat out and makeup! EAT up what the world has to offer and explore beyond your door,your town,your country.Life is a beautiful buffet of people,places,cultures and glorious things! Don’t you agree?

New York,New York

New York, New York … They loved it so much they named it twice.

Guest spoke at the beauty show,painting the city gorgeous and enjoyed yummy things along the way.

They were fabulous and exciting both beauty shows. I will do a blog on what trends I saw in time for the weekend.

Nothing like a hot dog from a street vendor. 2 slices of awesome thin crust pizza and a soda for only $2.75 and honey roasted peanuts for $1.00 if you are on the right street corner around town and in the right place to see their Nuts 4 follow the scent of hot sugary peanuts. They are so delicious!

The bakeries are too die for.Every where you go a giant muffin,bagel,pie,donut and cupcake are talking to you…saying “Come Eat Me”.The chefs in this the city are  are off the charts.

Yes, indeed it was a wonderful time.

The only thing is I am exhausted and I am usually a ball of energy! So, I WILL regroup and  get some beauty rest and write another blog soon.

Stay tuned…
