Went to the Orioles / Sox game in Baltimore yesterday. It was a stifling 96 degrees at game time and the game lasted just over 3 hours. We had great seats though, so I didn't mind that much.
I'll be adding more nail care tips to the site today! One of my own fingernails is almost all the way grown back in from a nail trauma injury I suffered back in May. They had to remove the fingernail completely, so my finger looked pretty scary there for a while.

Whew, it's a hot one today. Much nicer to saty inside and work on the computer. Here's an article I wrote recently. Enjoy!
Skin Care and Beauty Routines – How Does Yours Measure Up?

Good skin care and beauty are easier to achieve than you might imagine. And since we only get one face per lifetime, it’s much better (and cheaper) to invest in good skin care rather than a facelift.

When choosing a skin care regimen, it is important to use all of the steps from the same brand because they are formulated to work together. Don’t use a piece of this set and a piece of that set. Also, be sure to use ALL the steps in a skin care set. You wouldn’t bake a cake and leave out the flour, would you?

Wash your face thoroughly before applying makeup and glamour cosmetics. Give yourself a nice facial. An artist wouldn’t paint a masterpiece on a stained or dingy canvas, right?

When applying your facial skin care cleanser, use light strokes so as not to tug on your skin. Mask should not be applied too close to the mouth or the eye area. Toner and moisturizer round out the facial and now you’re ready for foundation and color cosmetics.

True beauty comes from within, and makeup and cosmetics simply enhance that. If your skin care and beauty routine doesn’t involve a lot of glamour makeup, don’t worry. A few shades of neutral or sheer cosmetics will give you that special glow and look of natural beauty. Pay attention to your manicure and pedicure as well.

For goodness sakes, don’t fall asleep with makeup or cosmetics on. It’s estimated that for every night you do, your skin ages by 12 days! Give yourself a quick facial before you hit the sheets. It’s called skin CARE for a reason.

I am in the process of adding a Bridal section to the site. I've done numerous glamour makeovers for brides. One was naturally tan and she just wanted some lipstick and mascara. Stunning! I also have gift sets for bridesmaids/attendants presents.
OK, gotta get some sleep and be fresh for when Chargers tickets go on sale in the morning. Can't wait to see them play again!

It's my birthday and I've gotten lots of flowers and cake. My best present (so far!) was that my website is up and running. Yeah! I already have a laundry list of things to tweak, so I'll go get to it.

Hi and welcome to my first-ever blog which will cover all things beauty: skin care, glamour, makeup, cosmetics, makeovers, facials and all that other good stuff. It's Tuesday, July 25th, the day before my birthday. I just finished work on my website called and it is uploading for the first time this very minute! That site has an "Ask the Expert" section where you can do just that, for whatever beauty-related questions you might have. It also has links to some very cool stores. I'll post again tomorrow with more news.
