On the 10th day of Christmas

My true love gave to me, a Luxe Link Purse Holder, the perfect accessory for a woman on the go and a great way to show off that Gucci Bag while dining out. Ladies, finally a solution to secure your purse while you’re out dining with the girls or your significant other. No more bunching your bag on the floor or any other compromising place for that matter. They come in several designs, so your sure to find a design that fits; your "pursenality".

The Perfect Red Lip

"I love red lipstick, but I just can't wear it!" This is a statement I hear over and over again from my clients. Au Contraire! Anybody can wear red lipstick, it just depends on the shade that is right for you. Reds com in so many combinations, it is almost impossible not to find on to fit you. Orangey reds, brown reds, pink reds and blue, all reds have an undertone. The trick is to find the one that is right for your skintone. You must take into consideration you hair color and pay attention to the amount of color you have in your lips. Be sure to use a lipliner so that your lipstick does not bleed. Make sure it is a perfect match or slightly deeper (not darker) so that it blends easily. Most of all, have fun! Go to your favorite beauty hang out and seek the help of a professionall artist. If you have to try on a hundred lipsticks to find the perfect one, then so be it! That is what they are there for.
Until next time Beauties, You've Been Marked!

On the 4th day of Christmas

My true love gave to me, a Cole Hann Leather Convertible Tote Bag, that comes in 4 different colors.

Leather Totes and oversized bags are multi-functional. They look great on your arm, and they can hold everything a woman can think of for a day at the office, a busy day of traveling, or for a laid back Saturday hanging out with the grils. They make a great gift for women of all ages, and will last several fashion lifetimes.

So Fresh and So Clean, Clean...

I love fragrance and I love long, hot showers. My favorite scents tend to have a spicier flavor to them, but I quickly added this clean, crisp fragrance to my arsonal. Bath by Bobbi Brown smells fresh, giving you that squeaky, clean feeling. Featuring notes of Water Hyacinth, Neroli, Orange Flower, White Lily, Aromatic Sage and Sandalwood with hints of Patchouli, Bath definitely stands up to its namesake.

Bobbi has extended this experience with the introduction of Bath Moisturizing Mist. This fine mist absorbs quickly and leaves a light scent on the skin while moisturizing agents Shea Butter and Olive Oil Extract, soften the skin and keep the body hydrated. I would definitely recommend adding these products to your Winterize Your Skin routine.

Brooklyn Beads Boutique

Do something a little more meaningful this holiday by making a gift instead of just giving one. This weekend my good friend asked me to join her in making Christmas gifts. We decided to go to the Brooklyn Beads Boutique located in Cobble Hill. The boutique has a variety of different beads to choose from in various colors. Brooklyn beads not only has beads but charms and semi-precious stones can also be used to make necklaces and bracelets. Once you have chosen your beads, you sit at a table and make your jewelry. While stringing your beads you can view the trendy neighborhood of Brooklyn through the boutique’s panoramic windows while listening to soft jazz. This jewelry making experience was very therapeutic and relaxing. Brooklyn Beads offers jewelry making classes on necklaces, rings, earrings and bracelets.

Winterize Your Skin: The Body

Okay Beauties! Last week we covered winterizing your face. This week let's cover the body. There are three things you can do to keep that body soft and supple during the chilly weather.

Every night after you bathe, it is a must that you apply body lotion. A few months back I wrote about my new obsession Vasiline Cocoa Butter Vitalizing Gel Body Oil. This gel oil will leave your body soft and silky. Dare someone to touch you and then try to leave! Once a week, it is a great idea to exfoliate the body. You can go old school and use a loofah sponge, but my recommendation is a great body scrub. Take the time to relax and apply all over body to remove the dead skin and lack luster that comes along with the harsh weather. To give your body some extra care, a detoxifying mask for the body will give you a true spa treatment at home. Last but not least, protect your skin when you leave the house. From coats, to gloves and hats, not only is it imperative to cover up to protect you from catching a cold, but the elements can reak havoc on your skin. Daily care from head to toe will keep your skin beautiful, fight the signs of aging and create a natural glow that you can find in any bottle! Until next time Beauties! You've been marked!

Jackline has been marked!

Jackline has been marked she is the recipient of my recommended Hair Care Regimen, complete with Sap Moss Nourishing Concentrate, Sap Moss Shampoo & Conditioner, Brilliant Damage Control, Phomollient, Brilliant Anti- Humectant, Brilliant Emollient Gloss, & Brilliant Medium Hold Hair Spray.
Jackline asked.....
Q. What products (exactly) can I use to keep my hair hydrated for this winter?
A. I recommend Sap Moss Nourishing Concentrate it is a pre-shampoo treatment, Sap Moss Shampoo & Conditioner, which will nourish and restore health to your hair. The active ingredient is Iceland Moss which heals, protects and provides moisture, as well as the Sap will supply additional nutrients for the hair. What makes this collection unique is the Sap Moss Moisture Concentrate. It is used as a healing treatment prior to shampooing and helps to repair dry, damages hair, which will restore its smoothness and shine. The Sap Moss Shampoo is unique because not only does it cleanse the hair you find most of the nourishment and it is recommended to leave in a few minutes setting it apart from traditional shampoo. Sap Moss Conditioning Detangler eliminates frizz and retains moisture.
Q: I need something cheap for my tight budget. I want to be able to walk into target, Sally’s, or any hair care beauty supply and find that product.
A: Their are many products available just like most things, you get what you pay for. I want to empower you with the necessary information to shop responsibly. When shopping you’re looking for ingredients that support the benefits you need from the product. The first ingredient to the last is listed in order of concentration, so the ingredients should support the benefit. Because you said you need hydration the product Ingredient that supports moisture: http://www.sunsethair.com/ingredients.htm Product Ingredients to avoid: http://www.aubrey-organics.com/about/treat_10synth.cfm
Q . How often should I clip my ends?
A. Ends should be trimmed every 4 to six weeks!
Q. My hair grows to a certain length and then it seems like it stays there. What should I do to ensure that it continues to grow, while still being healthy? Do you have any tips?
A. Because you said your hair reaches a certain length then stops, I recommend drinking plenty of water and the required amounts of vitamins from animal sources, red, yellow, and orange fruits, green leafy vegetables, whole grains, eggs, seafood, nuts and yeast. These nutrients will provide the protein, B vitamins, iron, zinc, and biotin of the daily requirements of a healthy diet. Which will give you beautiful healthy, vibrant hair.

Winterize Your Skin: The Face

Winter is fast approaching and it is time to change our skin care routine to reflect the change in the weather. It is important to treat you skin according to what it is doing now. I have oily skin, however when the weather changes to cooler tempatures, I become dehydrated. So I still need to take care of the oily factor, as well as the lack of hydration. Putting together a daily regime is easy. Once you determined your skin type, be sure to use the following products: cleanser, treatment, moisturizer, eye cream and what I call a "binder". You must also remember to take care of the neck and d├ęcolletage as...read more>>

We're Thankful!

Thank you to everyone who visits our blog daily, thank you for spreading the word, sharing your thoughts and sending emails, we hope that you enjoy your Thanksgiving Holiday.

5 tips to help you stay Fab during Holiday Festivities:

1. Wear cloths that are slightly tight on you. This should help you feel full faster, and keep you from eating too much food.

2.Keep your portions small. Try to load up on salad and vegetables, and take just tiny amounts of anything else.

3. Don't let yourself get too hungry. If you go to a party and you're starving, everything will look even more tasty than normal.

4. Walking around the shopping mall and stores is great exercise, and so is cleaning the house. In addition to those activities, decorating can be quite intensive workout as well.

5. Allow yourself one small serving of a cookie or piece of candy at holiday events during the holiday season. Just remember to kick your workout up a notch later.

Happy Thanksgiving Beauties!

Must Have Trends

“Yeah, but its Ghetto Gold”! Carrie explained it best when describing the difference between gold and Ghetto Gold to Miranda. Ghetto gold such as Rope chains, Bamboo earrings and Name Plates keep coming back. My mother hates it and thinks its ghetto, but I love it. Whether it is in style or not, I will never abandon my ghetto gold jewelry. Usually it can be found in your local pawn shop, but for an expensive price. If you plan on participating in this obnoxious jewelry trend just for the season and do not want to spend a lot of money on the accessory, it can also be found in retail stores such as Forever21. Also, if you are in the City, local street vendors in Soho are always selling this golden trend...read more>>

Packing 101

The plans have been made and now it is time to pack. This formula works for any trip, no matter the length. Use it to determine how many outfits you will truely need and to make the task of packing stress free.

Number of days of trip divided by 2 (for bottoms) x 1.5 (for tops) + 1 for (going out dress/skirt), an all weather jacket, 2 pairs of everyday shoes, 1 pair of stilettos, a handful of jewelry, 1 clutch, 1 everyday bag. Your travel day outfit can be the same for each day your on the road. Your math should look like this:

6 days of travel /2 = 3 bottoms x 2 = 4 to 5 tops + 1 going out dress/skirt, etc. etc. and of course, don't forget to pack your underwear, pajamas and hoisery.

What ever the kind, I'm sure you remember when you learned how to tell time on your first watch. My first watch was a Mickey Mouse watch, with a brown leather wrist band and gold dial.

What's Hot

Mary Jane...No, I'm not talking about the 80's hit song with the subliminal message about getting high, but... the shoes. History always repeats itself and this season Mary Janes are back again. Miss Tish introduced us to the LegWork DVD, so it only seemed right to talk about heels. Thanks to the fabulous team at LegWork, they showed us how to walk correctly in a pair of heels. Now that we know how to walk properly in a pair of fabulous shoes, it's time to make a purchase of this season's hottest trend...Mary Janes. You ask, "What makes a Mary Jane shoe?" Usually, it's the buckled strap on the front of the shoe. Every designer is incorporating Mary Janes in their collection. They come in many designs such as patent leather, suede and animal prints.

Love Addiction!

A guest came in Friday for her salon visit and began telling me about the affair she was having. We already know how damaging affairs can be, even if we don’t see it in the beginning. She is soooo in love, we all know that feeling! She went on and on about how in love she was, how they met this summer, how often they were involved, how she couldn’t see herself living without…… She said as she looked me in the eye, “I know I need to give this up, but I can’t!" I was very candid with her. I simply told her she needs to quit having this affair, it was affecting everything she had worked so hard to build. It was a hard sale, but she said she was going to do it. She was going to have an affair one last time, before saying goodbye. Because she came to me for advice I didn’t budge. I told her, "I know you are in love, I know everything looks good and it makes you happy, but enough is enough; let it go, just let it go!" Finally, she agreed to...read more>>

Get Hooded Out

Get hooded out in some of this season’s hottest hoodies. Hoodies are great for the fall season when the temperature begins to drop but it is still not cold enough for a winter coat. As a fashionista you can dress your hoodie up or down. For the casual look you can rock a hot pair of Uptowns, skinny jeans and a hoodie. If you like to dress things up you can combine your hoodie with skinny jeans and stilettos. Hoodies can range from $20 to over $200. Some of my favorite designs are by Christian Audigier and Heatherette. Pictures>>

So you've gotten your materials together and are ready to take the next step to Nirvana. It's time to decide how many categories you want in your book and what they are going to be. For example, I am a makeup artist that works with corporate clients, may shoot inside a studio, outside in the woods or attend an event involving my industry. Not only that, I have a personal life to dress for as well. My categories are: Fool Proof, Dressy, Casual Chic and Outdoor. Fool Proof is the VIP section of the book. You just can't let any outfit cross the velvet rope! Fool Proof outfits are outfits that everytime you wear them, you have at least one person compliment you on it. I definitely believe every look book needs to have this section. So brainstorm and decide what your sections are going to be, label your dividers, put them in your notebook and join me Friday as we begin to put our book together... Until then, You've Been Marked!
