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…..

Every One Needs A Little Sparkle

Every One Needs A Little Sparkle



Since old man winter decided to come a little early, I thought we all needed a little SHINE to get us to the weekend! 

I have a party on Saturday and Im really wanting to find a sequin skirt to wear! Add a cute tuxedo jacket with it to dress it up or add a denim shirt tied in a knot with a cute pair of pumps and you are ready to hit the town with the girls!! 

Ignore the fact that this jacket cost a bazillion dollars, you can find them anywhere. Try your local vintage store. And remember what I always say about blazers, buy a size smaller. It will be a lot more sexy and feminine for sure!!

Muah,
