GLOWING LAYERS

Finding the right foundation can be tough, especially when you want one that will last the whole day without feeling like you are wearing a mask. It seems like every couple of weeks, the research done behind foundations is evolving – you have foundations that are hydrating, illuminating, providing maximum coverage and so forth making it hard to keep up. Every time I visit the mall and stop by the makeup counter, there is a new type of foundation with a complex method of application making it daunting and scary. I like foundation that’s simple, light, and easy to apply. If it…

My first thought, what was I thinking when I bought it in a…

Also, what quickly sneaked up on me was the fact that nothing fits me in my closet. Thankfully, I found two amazing pieces at Banana Republic from their fall/winter 2016 collection. When I think of tweed, I think of a heritage high-fashion material that’s associated with haute designers like Chanel, Prada, and Dolce Gabbana.

GAME SET MATCH

When I was in high school, the furthest thing from my mind was looking stylish when I was on the tennis court. I would throw on some old tee shirt and gym shorts – whatever I could find that was clean. Fast forward a few years later and things have changed a great deal! Back then I dreamed about owning anything from Lacoste. It was a brand I associated with helping me look good when I played the game and also allow me to move easily and gracefully across the court. Today I have a deeper appreciation for the fabric Lacoste…
