Spring For Florals

Spring For Florals

I like Flowers in a garden, in a vase, even in a painting. In a Spring 2018 fashion season of bright, bold, in-your-face flowers, I opt instead, for more subtle blooms. You won’t feel frumpy in these florals, or look like you’re wearing your Grandmother’s curtains. These are […]

Maye’s Season

Maye’s Season

Maye Musk just celebrated her 70th birthday on April 19. But Maye is #JustGettingStarted. Famously the mother of Tesla and SpaceX founder, Elon Musk, Maye is basking in her own limelight. She covers the May issue of Harper’s Bazaar and her modelling career has taken flight. I’m optimistic, […]

Stripes Spotted

Stripes Spotted

Glow On

I’ve upped the ante on acids, moving from gentle to extra-strength daily Peel Pads by Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare. I was inspired to do so after watching a Sali Hughes YouTube video with the dermotologist and his wife, Carrie Gross. She’s the highly engaging CEO of […]

Beauty Bits

Beauty Bits

I am constantly on the hunt for the perfect facial cleanser. It’s the foundation of any skincare routine. There are some that say it doesn’t matter what you use to wash your face; it is in contact too briefly to be significant. I don’t subscribe […]

Easter

Easter

Happy Easter! So, what are you cooking? Ham? Turkey? Lamb? Or are you just going out for sushi? Maple-glazed ham graced our Easter table. Although there are many main course options, there’s one thing we can all agree upon—Chocolate. My teenagers demonstrated a willing suspension of […]
