Fashion Week is back around the corner – means get ready for style inspiration coming at you from every angle. I personally love the hair and makeup walking down the catwalk. How they want to make the girls get noticed for their beauty yet must keep eyes on the prize of the new collection. Let’s see if this new take on the braid (which I personally refer to as a plait in the english manor!) hits to paparazzi snaps next week!?
We all know pink & red are the ways to play it safe with our luscious lips… and I don’t know about you, but the bright crayola colored lips are a bit too way-out-there for me to jump on that current trend bandwagon!
Needless to say I found a happy medium solution today!
So extra fitting, this soft creamsilce orange shade keeps the final lingering days of summer at the forefront of my smile.

Beads aren’t just for dresses anymore, treat your nails. Bring beaded sophistication to your nail beads, don’t they deserve it?
Let’s embrace the natural beauty we all behold – and when better to present our fresh faces to the world during the warm (and often sweat endured!) days of summer… add a simple touch of rosy cheek & lips and you’re set to show off your goddess glow!
A picture says a thousand words – write your own story and present it to the world one hand at a time!
Boy it sure is summertime outside these days! The heat has arrived.
And if you’re like me, there are more “up-do” days when the temps are this high… so it’s time to get playfully creative!
Here’s a take on the average at-ease bun: dig into the bottom of your make-up bag and grab a few of those bobbin pins to accessorize a light and easy fresh look for your day!
Step 1: Fresh clean hair always feels and looks best. Use your typical lotions and potions, dry hair smooth with a paddle brush for a smooth base.
Step 2: Pull hair back from the face and secure into a low side ponytail. Wrap ends up and around, creating a loose, twisted bun. Secure with bobby pins.
Step 3: Use a contrasting color of bobby pins to make a row of chevrons (learn something new everyday, I had no clue that’s what this design is called!). Black pins are a good choice for blondes; silver would be better for dark strands. Slide one pin in on a diagonal, then a second pin through the first to create a stable v shape. Repeat until desired pattern is created.
Step 4: Step back, glance yourself in the mirror, smile at the beautiful you.
New York seemed a touch less stylish this last week – oh yes that’s as the who’s who of the fashionable ladies hit the west for a proper warm up to spring!

My name is Diane Williams. I am a grandmum, and an executive with NuSkin Enterprises. We help people feel healthier and look younger, and empower them to build financial security. This makes me very happy.
I recently went on a wonderful Mediterranean cruise, and I took my Sienna Ray bag with me. It was the perfect companion – next to my husband. I typically carry everything in my bag – phone, makeup, notebook, wallet, brush, breathspray, and business planner. And while travelling, of course, I needed to add a camera, passport, map and hand sanitizer.
Everything fits neatly into my wonderful bag. And it looks slim, trim and beautiful. I absolutely love my Sienna Ray bag!

Hey ladies, fall is here and it is coming to that time of the year- put those bathing suits away and pull out the sweaters. No more beach doesn’t have to mean no more tan! A healthy sun kissed glow goes perfectly with every outfit no natter what season you are in. I wonder if someone told Snooki that UV exposure can causes dry leathery skin. Not only does it look bad-but it’s essentially melanoma waiting to happen. There are 100’s of sunless tanning products out there, and these days that orange look is a thing of the past. Bye-bye carrot and hello beautiful! One great option is a spray tan- if you can’t afford personal application by a professional, try the booths. The west way to go is self-tanning -beauty experts have now perfect these products to provide the most natural look. After much research and personal options from fellow women, the best products on the market right now are: Aveeno Continuous Radiance Moisturizing lotion, Clarins Self Tanning Instant Gel, Jergens Natural Glow Express, and L’Occitane Sunshine Lotion. Remember pale is stale and tan is trendy.
It’s important for women to take care of skin in order for it to age “gracefully”. According to the healthy skin bible, sunscreen must be put on every day and reapplied every so often through out the day. The most overlooked rule is definitely moisturization. It is an quick and easy step that makes a huge significant difference on the complexion of your skin.
Rodin Olio Lusso here makes oil products for the face, body, and hair. Luxurious ingrediants like jasmine, rose hip seed, sweet almond, jojoba, calendula, and many more are used in the products. Even the packaging looks luxurious and expensive.
Don’t these celebrities look great with their maltese? They’re so small, fluffy, and loving!
Good make up can totally change your look and appearance. I for one have an issue with dark circles. They make you look tired and unhealthy. Your appearance is important because your co-workers or friends’ view of you matters. To awaken your look try putting on concealer where necessary, mascara on the lashes, and blush on the cheeks. See pictures below what a difference make up does!
So with bikini season approaching very fast I came across these excellent classes that are getting rid of the extra winter baggage…
Word on the street is that this Core Fusion programs beats all others around with their modern ballet infused aerobics PLUS the bonus toosh clencher is that the instructor on Friday mornings at their Gansevoort Meat Packing location looks, sounds and acts just like Matthew McConaughey! Maybe even a little better looking, if that’s even possible.
More info on Exhale Spa classes, locations etc. can be found here.
One often faces a lot of questions in life. A question that I often ponder is whether to save or to splurge. Well ponder no more because Fresh has two great facial offers- they’re so good you’ll just have to get them both!
Save: Make the most of your buying power with sample products from the quick, five minute facial that is done on the selling floor. The Refresh Spa Express treatment is available at most Fresh locations*, convenient to pop in on an afternoon stroll or even pre-evening out with your ladies.
Splurge: the full service, Refresh Spa will leave you feeling like a million bucks. The full value of your spa experience – from facials to full body massages to makeup lessons – can be redeemed for products of your choice. There really is no catch to this great deal. How can you not justify a “free” spa experience because you know you want to buy all their yummy products anyways!
