Eye Makeup Remover - Using one is your best bet for keeping the skin around your eye area looking its best. You won't believe how often I see women applying their facial cleanser to their eyelids and around their eyes. Generally, facial cleansers are not meant to be used in that area. Remember, the skin around your eyes is extremely delicate and it will show age quicker than any other facial feature. Invest in a good oil-free type of eye makeup remover and believe me, your eyes will thank you!

Shop Til You Drop! Wow! Yesterday I had a couple of appointments in the morning and after that my husband told me to get in the car and that he was taking me shopping. We drove through the beautiful countryside all the way out to Charlottesville, VA stopping at all the motorcycle dealerships along the way of course, like Waugh Harley-Davidson, Virginia Power Motor Sports, Jarman's Sportcycles, and even a trip to the Fashion Square Mall. We ended up needing to buy dog food before we got home so we stopped in at the PetSmart located at Short Pump Town Center in the West End of Richmond. I was floored! I used to live in the Wellesely apartments right near there and it was nothing but woods when I lived there! Amazing. It's a huge outdoor mall, which works REAL well in San Diego, like at Horton Plaza. In Virginia, though, it doesn't work quite as well. It was freezing cold and windy with some raindrops falling and an outdoor mall was just not where I wanted to be.

Whew! What a Busy Week I had! I'm so glad I can have a day with no appointments to sit back and take a little breather, especially on a day like today. Above average temperatures for late November and a lot of bright sunshine. Maybe I'll be able to finally get to this book I ordered so I can post of a review of it here on the blog.

Lip Gloss Tips, a quick hip lipgloss tip.

Lip gloss can be worn over your favorite lipstick for added shine or alone for natural and healthy looking lips. Women over 40 should wear lip gloss to help them achieve a more youthful look. A natural lip gloss color is the best when you want to keep the color you have but want some extra shine.
If you'll be applying a lip gloss over lipstick, you should pick a lip gloss color close to the lipstick color. Do not apply lip gloss over the entire lips or your lips may appear to be heavy and fake. By putting a small amount of lip gloss just on the center of both the top and lower lips you'll have the perfect slightly pouty look with just a hint of shine.

Went to a Fashion Show on Saturday. Helped the models with their makeup and then got to sit back and enjoy the show. Scarves will be big for the season. Click here for a cool scarf tying guide. Chain belts and big necklaces are also in. My favorite part of the show was a reversible skirt with a hem that was ruched all around the edge and longer in the back than it was in the front. Very cool.

I did something new and different yesterday. I worked at a polling station for the elections in Maryland. A 13-hour shift! Our station had good representation from the campaigns of Collins Bailey, Jay Bala, Peter Murphy, Mike Lukas, Steve Warner and a few others.
Many thanks to the people who worked there with me! We had a fun time and kept each other laughing despite the rain that began falling around 2pm and the temperatures in the mid-50's.
Boy was I ready for a nice home pedicure and footbath after all that time on my feet!

Acne Treatment Comparison from this morning's episode of NBC's Today show revealed that all the effective treatments contained benzoyl peroxide. I have received great feedback on this treatment and that's the one I recommend.

Trick-or-Treater Total from last night: 6

We had a skeleton, angel, Tony Stewart with a boy dressed as a girl, and then two older boys dressed as girls. Wow, I wish they had called me ahead of time for makeup advice...
