Nail Talk

Hello my lovely readers!

Well, things have been quite busy for me with all my travels and work, but I managed to make some delightful friends, some of whom are the team over at Bio Seaweed Gel Nails. The girls were so gracious and they did my nails in #242 Pink Sky ! I absolutely love them! It is actually the only gel nail experience that I can ever write about because not only do they look and feel so beautiful, but the benefits are awesome:
LED and UV light cured

No sanding, primers or bonders

ZERO dehydrated, stained or weakened nails

Safe industry record soak off removal in 5 minutes

Formaldehyde, toluene, DPB, BHA and solvent FREE


Ideal for nail art 😉

Here are the talented ladies behind the brand 🙂

bioseaweedgel2And I love my nails! They did some cute flower nail art on my “statement finger” as its called. This is latest trend and oh so fun! They used their specialized UNITY All-in-One Gel Polish.


Since nail art is the latest thing, this polish looks beautiful and is perfect for it!

Stay classy



Kim Sears Fashion

Hello lovely readers!
In case you didn’t know, Andy Murray is the new Wimbledon champion! Yay! However, it’s his girlfriend, Kim Sears, who has also been getting a lot of attention. And for good reason. I think it’s so wonderful to see her rocking such stylish, ladylike looks! She looks fabulous and is a great role model for fashion!

Brow Talk

Greetings lovely readers!

I had the pleasure of being in the company of the famous Anastasia Soare of Anastasia Beverly Hills. She is the go-to woman for eyebrows for everyone! Her philosophy is simple–that your eyebrows shape and frame your face. And yes, she is right. I got to watch her in action, up close with this lovely young lady….

anastasiapasadena1And this is the result (thank you sweetie for letting me take your photo!) 🙂

anastasiapasadena2You see? Having your eyebrows correctly shaped, clean, and natural looking literally transforms your face. I prefer eyebrows to be on the thicker side and clean. When you have them done right, like Oprah says, “it’s like a facelift that takes 10 years off your face!”. For her show where Anastasia was a guest, Oprah had these results for one of her viewers:


Not only is she a gracious lady, but Anastasia knows her stuff!


Here is the general rule of thumb in addition to the above tutorial for using her eyebrow kit…

anastasia1So let those eyebrows grow out, stop over-plucking, and then have them shaped the right way and continue with what shape is right for you. It will make all the difference and you generally wear less makeup!


….and I just couldn’t resist showing you my brows right now 😉 Just keep your makeup simple like mine and keep your eyebrows full and natural…

anastasia6I love anything that Anastasia has but I also use Too Faced Brow-nie Eyebrow pencil in Blondie. I use it regularly to brush my brows. I highly recommend it too!

So my lovely readers, grow those brows out!

Have a beautiful weekend!
