Got Frizzy Hair? Get Milk — Carol’s Daughter Hair Milk That Is

I have a love/hate relationship with my hair.  It seems that I love to abuse it and then hate it when it reacts to the abuse.  Well, between sun, sand and salt water, various home coloring ventures and an omnipresent pony tail, my hair sustained some serious damage this summer.  I seem to enjoy taking my hair to […]

Really:  Keeping it Real—How Much Photoshop is too Much?

You know, Photoshop just doesn't do everyone justice.  Yea sure, the major fashion magazines feel compelled to make stick-thin models even thinner than they are.  It's a great tool for getting rid of bags and sags — just ask Tyra who has shown her Photoshopped legs, before and after.  Or even more recently Kim Kardashian, […]

Purple Reign – Purple Eyeshadow 2 Ways

Fall Trend 2009 Thick Eyebrows — The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Groucho Marx Who comes to mind when you think of thick eyebrows? Sade?  Brooke Shields?  Groucho Marx? I think of all the them– the good, the bad and the ugly. Sade  (the good), one of my all-time fashion favorites rocked the thick brows back in the day with a vengence.  I of course tried to […]

Circumspect Sundays: 84 years of Marriage is a Thing of Beauty

I think that sitting on the porch with your husband of 84 years who is a sweet guy has got to be one of the most beautiful things in the world. Even if "he wasn't much to look at".  I have a goal now.  Hmm, 52 (me) + 84 (marriage) = Eternity. I can do […]

Words of Beauty by Audrey Hepburn with a Touch of Bling
