metallicnailsfw14I love that dark and mysterious metallics are back.

You can look and feel current with very little effort.

I am especially digging this striking dark meteorite gray metallic by Zoya, called Claudine, as seen at Timo Weiland.

As I head for a mani/pedi this week, I do believe this will be my chic color of choice!

Wardrobe therapy.

From your own closet.

At the beginning of each season, I get back into my clients' closets to take inventory and edit items that no longer serve them. It's the easiest way to determine what is needed for the season at hand.

Not only is this important for my clients, but also for me. I find it incredibly therapeutic. 

Year to year, we make slight adjustments to our style. Our style naturally evolves. And that's healthy. That's not to say it's the norm to make major changes. However, little corrections over time help fine-tune one's wardrobe, and one's self expression.

Your closet should be a delightful place to enter. It should provide opportunities to express every mood. But more importantly, it should speak to your individual style. 

If this is not your closet, call me! You could certainly benefit from a little (or a lot) of purging. It's life changing.

From one day to the next, the weather changes.

Super hot. Cold and wet. Muggy.

That's what layers are for. So, I'm okay with it. Even if that means wearing denim cutoffs with a fabulous poncho sweater. And sweaters. Yes, sweaters are big this season. Warm. Fuzzy. Goodness.

Over the past several weeks, I can attest that sweaters have made almost every client shopping list. In addition to mine. It's an easy form of self expression

braidedhairBraids are back.

I'm not going to lie. I'm glad.

It's an easy way to look on trend and spend very little time on your hair.  It's almost a cheat move. Too easy. Something you don't have to think about.

However, it's not for everyone.

I did braids three years ago when they first made an appearance. But I'm not sure I can pull it off this go around.

I will try. Though, it will have to be disheveled like this. This may be the only way you see a braid out of me this season.

Hair trends are meant to experiment with. However, always go with what is most authentic for you based on your individual style.

Trim lashes? For shame.

Well, when your lashes grow so long that they nearly touch your eyebrows, it's not so much a sin to trim them. It may sound like I'm bragging. However, this stuff works! That's why this review gets an exclusive feature!

Pam Dalpiaz introduced me to EYEsthetics Eyelash Enhancing Serum from the makers of Babydoll Lashes. Not only do I love the whole process of lifting and tinting my eyelashes every 6-7 weeks (hence, Babydoll Lashes), but now my lashes are super long and lush. This brand new to market lash lengthening formula is all natural. No chemicals involved.

I began using it twice a day, across the upper lash line. By week 3, I felt like my lashes were on the verge of a growth spurt. By week 4, my lashes took off! There was no holding them back. In fact, my lashes grew so quickly that the tips were bumping into my eyebrows, causing them to bend backwards. After I trimmed the tips, I decreased to once a day, and then to every 3rd night. 

In addition to lengthening, the serum claims to thicken and darken lashes. While I cannot attest to thicker lashes yet, I will say I noticed that my translucent lashes have become visible without mascara. That is quite a feat!

You will want this product. Especially at the price point ($65)! Look for Pam Dalpiaz's contact information on the top left of the page to reach out via phone or email to order. And then share your experience with us after a month. You will love your lashes!
