My Face and Body Beauty Routine


I hope you all are well on this rainy day!  I’ve been asked recently about what I use on my skin so I thought I would pull back the curtain! I have sensitive skin so I tend to use products that are gentle.

For my face wash I use Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Wash

Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Wash

I make sure that I exfoliate at least twice a week with Noxzema Clean Blemish Control Daily Scrub because it’s important as we age to help out the natural process which begins to slow down.  This removes all the dead skin and leaves you with soft skin!

I use Neutrogena Healthy Skin Moisturizer as the follow up and final product on my face.  I love it, it seals in moisture in my skin and leaves it looking radiant.

For the body, I love MAC Volcanic Ash Exfoliant.  A highly effective, dual-purpose foaming, cleansing and exfoliating scrub blending natural volcanic ash with fine sugar crystals. Refines and unclogs the skin, adds instant moisture, leaves skin feeling soft and comfortably clean.

After I exfoliate, I shave. I love Bic Soleil Razors and Skintimate Shaving Cream.  I know, so much pink!  I am a girly girl!

The last product I use before I get out of the shower is the Vaseline Cocoa Butter Body Oil.  This stuff is fantastic! Leaves you smooth, not greasy.

After all of that, I know, it’s a lot, I use Bath and Body Works Jasmine Vanilla Body Lotion

Last but not least, I have a treat for tired feet!  Barefoot Lemon and Sage foot balm is great because it doesn’t leave your feet slippery and leaves them soft!

Tell me what you use for your beauty routine!

The Truth About Style with The Fantastic Stacy London!


I had the distinct pleasure of attending Stacy London’s book signing at Muleh, last Friday evening. We mingled, shopped and listened to Stacy’s great style advice.  All of the Style for Hire Stylists (Stacy’s National Stylist Company) got a chance to get together and chat about what we had all been doing.  Muleh is a fantastic boutique on 14th street which you need to visit ASAP!

All Access Tysons 2012


While I’m not a big fan of the fall, I am a big fan of All Access Tysons that happens every year at the end of September.  It’s a 3 day event that encompasses a panel discussion, a fantastic fashion show and after party followed by a full day of retail stores showing off their new fall fashions.  This year one of my favorite designers was featured, Elie Tahari.  It featured fun colors, fur and fabulous shoes!  Take a peek and let me know what you think!
