My New Skin Care Regimen

My New Skin Care Regimen  I turn 50 next year – eek! – and have been noticing more redness, periodic breakouts, stubborn brown spots, and the overall discoloration of my aging skin and I’d like to do something about these issues, preferably before the big 5-0!. So when my friend Karen Borgfeldt, clinical esthetician and owner of Hello Beautiful Skin in Santa Rosa, asked me to review her Face Fitness program earlier this fall, I was eager to…

Around Here Lately

I had hoped to have a fashion post for you today but with the continuous and rather heavy rains (hooray!), all I’ve been wearing lately are jeans, long-sleeved tees, my wellies and a raincoat. Not very interesting! Sunnier weather is in the forecast starting today so it won’t be long before I’ve got some spring fashion posts for you. Until then, I thought I’d take this opportunity to tell you what’s been happening around here lately. You may or…

I brought so many pretty things home with me, I couldn’t wait to…

Eyelash Extensions

Before I get into my post today, I want to acknowledge what a tragic last few weeks it has been. The Paris and Beirut attacks, as well as the Russian jetliner explosion, have left many of us feeling sad, confused and lacking hope for peace.

Voloom Hair Volumizing Iron

If there is one thing about my appearance I get a lot of comments about, aside from my height, it’s my hair. With the exception of a Madonna-inspired chin-length bob in the 1980s, I have always sported long locks. I am grateful to have thick, healthy hair with body. But because of its thickness and length, my hair is very heavy. Creating and maintaining volume above my chin-line is not easy. The weight of my hair…
