Kisses ๐Ÿ’‹ from Las Vegas!

Iโ€™m in beautiful and always fabulous Vegas! The heat is on. The other day it was 116 degrees.

Have you ever been?

Today I guest spoke at the International Esthetics Cosmetics and Spa Conference show. I had a sold out crowd! I so LOVE what I do!


Anyone who is anyone in beauty and hair is here! It is so exciting. I have missed guest speaking since Covid. But itโ€™s beginning to look like a sense of normalcy and happiness!

The show floor was filled to the brim with so many booths. I attended a few classes and shopped and explored. Iโ€™m exhausted.

Tonight we had dinner at a delicious place called Orchids Gardens. They serve all kinds of Dim Sum ๐ŸฅŸ all day. I have been going to this place for years.

Iโ€™m taking notes ๐Ÿ“ and checking out all that I can and that is trending!

So please โ€ฆ Stay tuned. The time zone for me is a 3 hour difference and Iโ€™m starting to fade. Im going to take a bubble bath ๐Ÿ›€ and relax.

Then, Iโ€™m joining my husband for a cocktail ๐Ÿธ and eating a box of chocolates together in bed.

Sweet Dreams!

How To Celebrate Cinco De Mayo At Home With A Virtual Fiesta โ€” StyleCaster

Sharing is caring. I love a good party. Even if it is for one. And even if we are not going to be able to celebrate like years gone by. Check out this fun blog post from one of my fave bloggers. Get shopping it is just days away.

While Cinco de Mayo officially celebrates the 1862 Mexican armyโ€™s victory over the French, itโ€™s become a holiday that people across the world celebrate. Typically, most people would spend the day eating at Mexican restaurants, downing margaritas and throwing partiesโ€”but in these unprecedented times, weโ€™re having to adjust how we celebrate. Luckily, there are soย manyโ€ฆ

The Best Beauty Organizers to Give Your Vanity The Ultimate Instagrammable Makeover โ€” StyleCaster

Some beauty inspiration while social distancing…


We all love the Instagrammable shelfie and vanity posts on social media, proudly showcasing the impressive (and impressively organized) beauty collection of our favorite influencers and editors. And while I too am fortunate enough to have a studio with a 1920s built-in vanity table, along with a semi-overflowing beauty closet, I find the challengeย ofโ€ฆ

Nailed It!

The latest trend that snuk up on me is one a client told me about! I just had a nail party with my fingers and toes in my hotel room with a thing called Nail Strips. The Brand name is Color Street nails. What fun!

Here are the deets:

Dry Nail Polish Strips ๐Ÿ’… Who Knew?

๐Ÿ’ฏReal nail Polish

No dry time, no smudges or streaks!

They come in glitter,solid hues and fun nail art designs too. Also available for pedicures.

They are like applying a sticker.

Lasts up to 10 days!

Removes easy with nail polish remover. Preferably with moisturizers.

My absolute favorite is “Tokyo Lights” which is like a rose gold on steroids. So sparkling and gorgeous! I also am in love with Charmed and Dangerous which is a lip ๐Ÿ’‹ theme and pink polish nail strip. So ME!

It took a 5 minute learning curve for me.๐Ÿ˜œ But I did it and it was so fast and pure fun!!!

I hope one day you’ll explore and get all dolled up with them!

Travel and Explore!

I just spent an amazing time in Arizona! One of my stays was at the JW Marriott Star โญ๏ธ Pass Resort & Spa. It is an amazzzing place! And the spa was beautiful too.ย 

It was so refreshing to be back to Arizona again! The history and the food with a bit of heat ๐Ÿ”ฅ some things more spicy ๐ŸŒถ than others. It is an awesome place to visit.

The highlights from my trip were visiting the city of De Tubac where arts and history and foodies are alive and kicking. I happened to be there when they had a festival going on. So many creatives in one place!

My fav’ place to eat was at Elvira’s. So delicious and the wait staff was awesome. The restaurant was Eye ๐Ÿ‘ candy in itself. All the color from the moment you arrive. The art ๐Ÿ–ผ and even using the powder room was a religious experience.

Connected to this place is a fabulous decor & gift shop! From angels, to hearts to art to glassware. I found a hand blown heart โค๏ธ piece I had to have. I’m going to place it in a gold ribbon and hang it from one of my chandeliers. I used to buy mugs, pot holders and tea towels when visiting places. Now when I travel I got smarter! I buy things that make me ๐Ÿ˜Š happy and that decor adorns my home or office. A daily reminder of my wonderful trips!

Also in this town there was a fabulous kitchen store Tumacookery I could have shopped there ALL day. If you’re a foodie or chef. What a fabulous and fun place!

Everywhere you travel ๐ŸŒต cactus of all kinds follow you. And they have skin care and cocktails ๐Ÿน and other edible cacti treats too! The weather was amazing! ๐ŸŒž

The people were charming and the sunsets were breathtaking! As I always say…explore beyond your door. Life is even more wonderful if you just get out the door and travel.

Have you ever been? Share with me.

Sometimes less is more!

FALL is definitely here maybe not so much in Florida ๐ŸŒด๐ŸŒž where I now live but it is here.

As we choose a new look in makeup for fall… I think sometimes less is better!  I love to do a soft and pretty makeup look.  And I love to make up my clients in a soft kiss of color way. Yes, a deeper lipstick is always a good idea.

But you don’t have to go over the top with your makeup!  Now, if you love a lot of it and like it on your face all at one time … I get you.

I am a beauty lover too!!!

But if you are intimidated with makeup and applying it…Don’t be. Just apply a lipstick ๐Ÿ’„ and eye ๐Ÿ‘ liner.

I have met so many women in my career who say they are so frightened and tell me they suffer with makeup. You don’t have to suffer with it EVER!

It’s OK to apply your makeup softly and not wear it all! Really!
