There have been more scorching hot days this Summer of 2019 than I can count! And I believe I read in the news that this past May and July had some of the hottest days in history. That's why I had to do THIS BEAUTY REPORT on WGN TV Chicago Midday News.
I say it in the video below, which I hope you'll watch [ JUST CLICK IT ] but I'll say it again here: WHERE THERE'S A WILL FOR BEAUTY THERE'S ALWAYS A WAY! These are my tips for the worst beauty blunders of summer.
Problem #1: Your hair is prone to frizz.
Listen, I feel you on this one because I've spent a lifetime coping. My best solution, and it's one that works really well, is GKHair's THE BEST TREATMENT. It smoothes, hydrates and conditions your hair for the entire summer, making it frizz-free and easy to style. I get this treatment done at my salon in New York City called Gemini 14 Salon (ask for Christian Sanchez) and I won't lie, it's expensive: $400!!! But it's worth it to me in every way as...
Are you surprised that I've gone and tried yet another controversial skincare treatment? Don't be. This is what I do...
It's called the "Vampire Facial" because some skincare practioners go to the extreme of making your face all bloody, but it really doesn't have to be that way and I'm glad mine was NOT. The real name for this rejuvenating facial treatment is Platelet Rich Plasma Injection Therapy with Microneedling. I went to Youth Corridor for it, and sat down with Dr. Gerald Imber before and after my treatment to understand it better.
WATCH MY VIDEO BELOW TO SEE!
I will admit that my initial interest stemmed from watching Kim Kardashian receive it. She has the most beautiful skin and the best access to skincare trends, so how could I not be intrigued by it? As you can see from my video above, the Vampire Facial I got was very different than hers. It was a lot less dramatic. Still slightly painful but nothing I couldn't handle.
Welcome to Stagecoach Inn! I hope you enjoy this review of mine as much as I enjoyed the 2 days I spent here at Stagecoach Inn in Goshen, New York. You're probably wondering, where on earth is Goshen? At least that was my first question when I heard about the little town. I've spent 17 years in New York state but had never heard of it. Goshen is a town nestled in the Hudson Valley region of many inns. It has a quiet and relaxed vibe but don't underestimate it because it's got a lot of history to it! Goshen is a wonderful place to retreat to in the coldest of winters or the warmest of summers! I personally loved it because it was a short drive from New York City for me to reach: a whopping 30 minutes without traffic. I was drawn to Stagecoach Inn on January 10th of 2019 because the holidays had just passed and the idea of going somewhere quiet, cozy and charming was a dream. I rented a car and before I knew it, I was driving into the curved driveway of 268 Main Street....
It’s the day after Christmas. You know what that’s like. You’re basically throwing out all the torn wrapping paper, running the last load of dishes used to host your guests and thinking about the next few days ahead before the New Year.
It’s A LOT. There’s so much excitement around the holidays and leading up to Christmas that we forget about everything post-holidays. Especially the act of getting our life back in order and stabilized. Is there even time for goal setting? I did a little of that myself in early December but really need to finish my list. It has to be more than just a mental list. If you don’t write it down (or type it out), well…you know how that goes.
I find that gaining my balance post-holidays starts with establishing my morning routine for the year. Believe it or not, there was a time when I didn’t make my own coffee or my bed. I was a mess. I would throw all my sheets and pillows on top of my bed in a pile and just pick up my coffee...
This gift guide is for anyone shopping for a 30-something woman this holiday season. As a 30-something myself, I know a lot about what we like! We love anything that helps us take care of our bodies, feel and look more youthful and that puts sass & edge in our personal style. At this point in our lives, we know who we are from the inside out, so we enjoy unwrapping presents that back up that notion. These are my TOP TEN gifting suggestions and they all come at a reasonable price!

Oh, and guess what?! I have eczema and I’m 100% comfortable shouting that across the world wide web (can we still call it that?)! I feel the need to shout because it’s October, which happens to be Eczema Awareness Month. I’ve partnered with Aveeno for the 2nd year in a row (that’s how much I love them) to talk about how eczema has affected my life.
First of all, a lot of people might ask, why is such a holiday so important? Hmm, I’ll...
