First off, I’d like to apologize for my long absence. I haven’t forgotten about you, and actually, you’ve been on my mind a lot. I’ve been fully engrossed in the KickStarter campaign for my small leather accessories line, and haven’t had a chance to come up for air. More details to come soon.

Boy, am I ready to slide right into spring and  stay there. No more wavering back and forth from warm to cold, or sunny days that transform back into cloudy ones in a blink of the eye. I want the smell of jasmine to linger for days, the sun to be a constant in my life, and the weather warm and balmy. Just the kind of days ideal for wearing this Spring’s “it” shoe – the slide!

I’ve curated a selection of the best ten slides available now. My personal favorites are Jenni Kayne’s buckle fringe mules. I plan on living in them this spring! I’ve also got my eye on x Revolve’s Sari slides in corn flower blue velvet, and Gucci’s neon pink suede mid-heel slides — both ideal for showing off the spring’s trendiest hues in nail polish!

November came and went before I even had a chance to think about Christmas/Chanukah. But, now that we are settling into December, I can’t ignore that the holidays will be here in the blink of an eye. Gift giving can be as consuming as a full-time job, but one way to lessen the stress level is great planning and starting your shopping early.

My curated list of incredible gifts for the beauty lover in your life (we all have one) can help on both accounts (with more varied lists to come). I can vouch for Hourglass’ Ambient Lighting set and brush – it gives me a glow that comes in handy when my face is in need of a pick-me-up! What I have added to my Santa list is the ZIIP Nano current device. The brainchild of “electrical esthetician” Melanie Simon, ZIIP uses nano-current technology to stimulate elastin and collagen production to produce luminous and lifted skin after one treatment!!  Sounds good to me!!

Beauty Gifts – From Stocking Stuffers To Full Blown WOW Them Gifts


Mirror mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all? You don’t need to be a wicked queen to fall a little on the vain side when it comes to looking great. What woman doesn’t love a little help when it comes to her beauty regime (no one we know)?

We have curated a selection of delectables – from stocking stuffers to the ultimate at-home beauty tools that will WOW even the most ardent beauty obsessed consumer. Many of these goodies are our own personal favorites and the others are on our list for Santa.  The YSL make-up kit contains the Touche Eclat, the beauty secret of the world’s top makeup artists and models. This magic pen eliminates dark circles and signs of fatigue, and illuminates your skin resulting in a fresh, younger looking you. We don’t walk out the door with out a quick swipe under our eyes. For our lashes, Almay’s One Coat Dial Up mascara for $8 rivals any of the designer mascara that retails for 3 times the price.

We’ve been extra good these past few months, hoping Santa will notice and drop down our chimney the new Quasar MD – more powerful and 3x stronger than the prestigious Baby Quasar, you’ll be able to achieve professional quality spa results in half the time. This baby has been proven effective to fight signs of aging, damage (including loss of tone), firmness, color, enlarged pores, and wrinkles. Until now this technology was available only to medical professionals.

These gifts are perfect for girlfriends, sisters and moms who know a little extra help can go a long way, but while you are out buying for them don’t forget to pick up one or two of them for you!
