Channeling my inner Christie Brinkley!

In the midst of cleaning and organizing the office in my makeup studio for a few weeks. It is hard to have an immaculate office and desk when you are doing beauty services and helping clients with their retail shopping needs. I discovered a box I had a hair piece in. I also reconnected with an old friend onmy desk …Timeless Beauty a book that I read and put down and read again. I think it is all about this book cover!

Who doesn’t want to look like Christie Brinkley when we turn her age!  Right? BLOG Christie Brinkley

I also noticed I opened the box but did not ever use what I bought from Hair2Wear. Christie’s ever poplular Wispy Hair Wrap. Doesn’t that sound sexy?

I eagerily dropped what I was doing to test drive the hair wrap like she uses on her own hair.  I tried it out 5 different ways and no matter what I did my Wispy Wrap

I said out loud…“Looked like CRAP”. and worse yet I ordered the wrong brown hair color!

So disappointed  I shot this photo and put it back in the box under my desk. I so wanted sexy effortless wispy hair like Christie. Then I remembered  when I and why I bought it… she demo’d on TV with the show host and made it seem so easy. But her next guest selling appearance she demo’d even more and started pulling out many (NOT just one to get her look) hair pieces that were strategically placed all through her hair. SHE is a MASTER at it.

It just goes to show you…don’t judge a book by it’s cover. This beauty really works it in more ways then one…with what appears to be effortless style. Maybe I’m missing something and I need to buy a pair of those to die for shimmery and blinged out high heels,a gold sweater and strike a pose ala Christie’s cover on the book.

Perhaps then THIS brunette will look like Christie Brinkley! (Wink…Wink)

I love Naples!

naples-photo

I recently had the pleasure of visiting a magical beautiful place…Naples.

I have been in Naples Italy  before but this time it was Naples in sunny Florida!

The beauty of shopping,drinking and browsing on 5th Avenue South!

  • Bob Baker Shoes is the most unique SHOE and accessory store I have ever seen!
  • Wind and Willow fabulous fashions and fun gifts
  • Skyline Chili for casual dining on the cheap
  • Best of Everything unique gifts,baubles,bangles and beads
  • T Michaels for fine dining!
  • Naples Grande Beach Resort THE BEST place to stay~

If you ever are out that way…it is so clean and beautiful and the gulf is at your feet.

Black Magic

NAY NAY lashes Easy Elegance
Wicked good ideas~ Not just for Halloween !!!

There is power in a black lipstick!
It’s not just for Halloween. I like to use it to deepen light lipsticks or change the color of other lipsticks.

Deepest  Black mascara accentutates your eyes and defines them even more.

A Black Cat liquid liner gives you a fine line and or makes a bold statement line. Use on top of the eyelid at lash line or underneath for definition.

Black dark eye shadow like the kit by Makeup Revolution USA/London’s kit HARD Day is a fun kit to play with you can turn your day eye shadows into deeper evening shades when used on the top of them. Blend well.Say Hello to a sexy kitten!

And the icing on the black cake…. is a set of sultry sexy strip eyelashes!

I love the collection collaboration with Vegas _Nay and Eylure London.

This gorgeous social media sensation Vegas_Nay AKA Naomi Giannopoulos has some fabulous NEW strip lashes to bat your eyelashes with too.

Black Nail polish… Not only for your fingers and toes! I like to use it for scuff marks on my black shoes. You know the wear and tare on the heel and how the color comes off. Do not try with your Christian Louboutin’s. Only with other less expensive shoes and heels. Works like a charm.

Go ahead…add some black magic to your life in more ways than one!

Kisses to you… Mr.Christian Louboutin!
