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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

EoT’s Favorite Things: Radical Skincare Revitalizing Mask

A few weeks ago a box arrived on my doorstep with two skincare products from Radical Skincare. I’m a sucker for a great presentation, so I delighted in opening the box to find a lovely handwritten note from the two founders of the brand, Liz and Rachel Edlich (yes, they’re sisters). Their message […]

Is Anti-Aging a Bad Message?

A few weeks ago I ran across a YouTube excerpt from Oprah Winfrey’s Prime show featuring Oprah and Cameron Diaz.  The topic centered on our plight as women aging in America.  It seems since Cameron turned 40 she needed to adjust some of her lifestyle choices — watching her diet, getting enough […]

Let’s Face Mondays: Safe Sun Time

Warmer weather finally arrived, so we scramble to get outside for some sunshine and fresh air. Our pathetically low Vitamin D levels delight in the sun exposure. Our moods perk up, life becomes easier, and we embrace all that the universe offers us. (Well…perhaps I exaggerate, but I had acupuncture […]

EoT’s Favorite Things: Dolce & Gabbana Intenseyes Black Intensity Mascara

Last week I spent a frenetic four days in Manhattan where I managed to squeeze in some (beauty) shopping time. I spent a LOT of time in Manhattan over the years, so I couldn’t wait to hit the streets in search of my new favorite thing. But, it’s a big city […]
