Let’s Go To South Beach

Let's Go To South Beach
Sorry I have been out of touch.
As you know I had a big birthday this month.
4-0
It wasn’t as painful as I thought, enjoyed a great day with family and friends.
We had a beautiful bonfire on the beach, watched the sunset and ate smores.

What more could a girl ask for?
Well…How about a girl’s trip to South Beach!
The last of my birthday celebration is this weekend and we are heading to Miami!
Lots of sun, cocktails, good food and of course dancing!
When packing I try to keep in mind packing items that can be used more than once.
Picking colors and shoes that you can mix and match.
My TKEES for easy airport traveling will be perfect by the pool.
My jewelry can go day or night as well as easy to wear sundresses.
So here you have it, my packing list! You can click on the image above to get more details.
I’ll take lots of pictures and I can’t wait to tell you all about it!

Mirror Mirror on the Wall… by fashionablechicks on polyvore.com

I don’t know about you but about this time every winter I look in the mirror and feel 5 years older. My skin looks dry, pale and ughhhh wrinkly! 
I try to get a regular facial in the winter but somehow I can’t quite squeeze it in. So instead, here are a few products I love that help with the winter blahs.
I use an exfoliator everyday, yes everyday, along with my Clarisonic. If you do not own a Clarisonic, they are a great investment. A little pricey but worth every penny. I think they are around $250 but I have had mine for three years and it is still working great.  I like Clinique and YSL, they are not very strong so perfectly safe to use everyday. The Bobbi Brown body scrub is great and I can not live without this one.  

When I feel really dry and dull, I add a retinoid product. To get one that really works- you need to get it from your dermatologist.
A great addition all year, is the Kate Sumerville Face Tanning Pads. I try to not get sun on my face and these do not smell soooooo incredibly bad like most sunless tanners do.
Hope this helps a tad, I’ve added a moisturizer (Bobbi Brown) and Aquaphor for the lips. I’m addicted to this stuff. I even put it under my eyes with and without makeup on. With makeup, I add it to the top of my cheekbones and it gives you a dewy look. Try it and see, not too much- you don’t want to look greasy.

Bye Bye Winter Blahs…..
