The Spring Trench

People always ask me what is the best type of coat to wear during this crazy time of year. The calendar says it’s spring but the thermostat is all over the place, right? How many days have you all left your house in a puffer coat and by lunchtime, you are sweating and regretting you didn’t wear a denim jacket?

Makeup in Minutes

I am a creature of habit with just about everything in my life, especially when it comes to my makeup ! I have learned over the years (and with the help of many professionals) what works for me. What better way to share the love than to show you how you too can conquer your morning makeup routine in under 5 minutes! The older we get, it seems as if we need to wear more makeup but I am going to show you that less is more! Cover what you need to cover and highlight what needs to be highlighted and you will be good to go!

Here are my favorite staple products that I have been using for years –

I was recently in Miami and wore this cardigan pretty much everywhere I went; on the airplane, at lunch, out with friends to dinner…you name it, my cardigan came with me.
