Changing Up Your Purse

How often do you change your handbag? Daily, weekly, seasonally, when it wears out? We each have our own preferences as to when it’s time for a new one. Part of it depends on what type of handbag you carry. If you tend to carry a classic, you are probably less tempted to change it […]

Feeding Picky Eaters At A Dinner Party

Whether the difficulties are by choice (vegetarian or vegan), restriction (gluten or lactose intolerance), or simply that finicky friend who doesn’t like anything, hosting a dinner party doesn’t have to be a mine field when it comes to navigating the menu options.  As long as you know in advance which things to avoid, you can […]

When Is ‘Too Much’ Skin Care?

Couple in front of the mirror

I’m not referring to the 12-step skincare regimens, although that does seem like a lot.  I’m referring to how much of each product you use with each application.  Typically we use too much of each product which can result in going through the bottle too fast, spending more money, and even potentially causing negative effects […]

Do you have deep set eyes?  One quick way to find out is to use a pencil and hold it flat against your eyebrow.  If it rests against your cheek without touching any other part of your eye, you indeed have deep-set eyes. While this particular eye shape is great for eye makeup because it […]

A night out at the theater usually means dressing up and carrying that tiny black satin clutch that we never get to use any other time.  It also usually means the black eyeliner and the red lipstick to round out that fancy outfit.

Sometimes we get caught up in the ‘bigger’ parts of our makeup routine, and forget to double-check the little things.  But if you make them a part of your regular routine, they really won’t add too much time to your morning.  Here are a few quick things that I try to pay attention to: Lip […]

Build a Better Salad

Salads sound like the perfect “healthy” meal – a base of colorful vegetables accented with flavor.  But there are landmines everywhere at a salad bar.  I mean, the macaroni salad alone would set you back a day’s worth of fat and calories (and probably sodium too). But don’t worry, you can still get all the […]

How to Take Care of Yourself

It seems that so many women are caretakers by nature, from bosses and coworkers to spouses and children to friends and family.  And while we enjoy taking care of the ones we care about, sometimes we forget to take care of the caretaker – ourselves.  When we take care of ourselves, we are in better […]

It’s hard to believe that with the temperatures still soaring, fall is right around the corner.  All the stores in my area are already running back-to-school sales and the tax-free weekend is coming up.  While your shopping list may contain colored pencils and spiral notebooks, I’m curious what else it contains…  for you! A new […]
