bbbrowgelI am always seeking ways to improve my skimpy eyebrows. Keeping them in place is equally as important.

Last year, I thought I found the best brow gel — until I came across Bobbi Brown's Brow Shaper in clear. This product rocks! I love the small size brush. It really makes a difference in defining brows. The cream-gel formula locks brows into place, while the powder dry down allows for a natural look that’s never stiff. Super impressive.

This brow shaper comes in beautiful shades, too, which means I can amp up my look whenever I want. Some days just call for more brows.

I could not live without this amazing brow tool in my arsenal!



As I pull together a few last minute items for my upcoming photo shoot, I am reminded of just how blessed I am to work with amazing companies and talented people, all very trusting of my ability and skill.

Supporting a client's vision is always the guiding principle. Yet, I am continually surprised by the amount of creative leeway I am afforded. It's awesome in every sense of the word.

In the same way I tout self expression in shoots, the importance of understanding one's individual style is also placed upon my clients' shoulders. And the 'why' of it all. Lightbulb moments.

So here's to a week of personality. Let it out!

If this doesn't bring a smile to your face, I don't know what will.

In these cold temps, a little cheer goes a long way. As I am packing my clients for resort season, pulling their spring shopping strategies together and styling photo shoots, I have to stop and ponder the awe moments of the upcoming season.

While always impeccable, Victoria Beckham's designs get better and better each season. The pre-spring and spring/summer 2015 collections are gorgeous — touting the best in shape and color. The whole line up makes me giddy!

Even though we have a ways to go before we feel the warmth of the sun, day dreaming (and planning) will get you through.


diamondextremeSkin care addict, I am. And I'm not ashamed to admit it.

There are many of us out there who find it impossible to resist certain products. Natura Bissé is one of those lines that I can't find any flaws in. Therefore, I can't get enough of the products.

The Diamond collection is special (though truly, all the NB lines rock). This particular formula triggers your skin's own defense mechanisms in order to repair your skin and protect it from harmful aggressors. I love a rich, luxurious cream that hydrates impeccably, regenerates, fights wrinkles and provides elasticity. And who doesn't like to wake up to amazing skin?

The best part about this moisturizer, it's not heavy. It feels wonderfully soft on the skin. Your skin will eat it up. And the compliments will ensue.

Spring teaser!

On this gorgeous day, it got me thinking about my spring shopping strategies for my clients. I love planning wardrobes, knowing the existing inventory and introducing new pieces that will play nicely, based on personal style.

While this gorgeous Antonio Berardi draped silk crepe de chine dress won't make many of my clients' spring shopping lists, take notice of the flowy nature. It's one easy foundation piece. It doesn't take much to accessorize (hello fabulous shoes). And it's all about spring!

So whether you go big, like this, or mimic the feeling in either a top or a long skirt, you will channel the essence of spring 2015.
