I Got The-Where-Did-My-Life-Go-Wrong Blues

I need to share a confession – I’m not a fan of summertime. I dislike the heat and humidity, see little reason to invest in summer clothing (since they’re practically disposable), and always feel let down by the beauty offerings summer serves up. Seriously – how many seasons must we […]

Talk Back Tuesday: In Living Gray

14 months ago I decided to let my gray (as in hair) grow in. Historically I possessed dark brunette hair, which, in my youth, some described as black. Not a warm tone to be found in it! One of the many joys of aging reveals itself in the ‘de-coloring’ of […]

How to Write a Useful Review for Online Purchases

Are you an online shopper?  Do you read reviews before you purchase?  How many of them are actually helpful?  More and more we are relying on those who have purchased items before we do to help us make informed decisions, but reading that “I wore the dress to my sister’s […]

EoT’s Favorite Things: The 6AM Flight Make-Up Essentials

Recently, I flew out on a 6 AM flight into New York for a lunch meeting. Years ago, I perfected this trip because, for several months, it served as my ‘commute’ to work on Mondays and back home on Fridays.  The alarm went off at 3:45 AM and I needed […]

Time to Hang Up My Mighty Mouse Cape

The last few weeks have been a shit show — plain and simple. Loss, last minute travel, and illness, layered on top of life’s everyday demands adds up. And, not in a good way, but in a way that harshly reminds me that I’m human and posses all the imperfections […]

EoT’s Favorite Things: Dolce&Gabbana Lipgloss Intense

I readily admit I possess an unhealthy relationship with lipstick — and to be more precise . . . . lipgloss.  I love the stuff. Red, pink, nude, tangerine, makes no difference to me, as long as I own a new one every week, or two. Insane? I know. Let’s just […]

The Fashion of Travel

As I sat at the airport today waiting for my flight back to Chicago, I did what I love to do in public places, people watch.  And, as I observed fellow passengers I was once again amazed at the variety of dress that I saw. When I grew up, taking […]

Let’s Face Mondays: The Dove Patch Test Sucks

Historically, I like to beat up on beauty and ‘lifestyle’ brands who purport to rally a gal’s self-confidence by crafting advertising messages under the guise of ‘research.’ Dove, Special K, and a handful of others developed an uncanny knack for ingratiating themselves to women by conducting ‘research’ on the very […]

Let’s Face Mondays: Self-Tanner

Last week on Let’s Face Monday, I hopped on my SPF +30 soapbox just in time to take the wind out of everyone’s spring-time sails. So, this week I wanted to offer a safer alternative, so you appear sun-kissed without actually exposing your skin to the damaging UVA and UVB […]
