Setting the Mood: Golden Girls

By |June 10th, 2013|Setting the Mood|

On more than one occasion, read every time we’re discussing another traumatizing date or ex from hell over cocktails, my girlfriends and I revisit the idea of just going in on a townhouse and becoming the modern day Golden Girls… about thirty years early.  Anyone who knows me well, knows that I fall asleep nearly every evening listening to the witty banter between Blanche, Rose, Dorothy and Sophia.  I can’t wait to be a Golden Girl.  And in that spirit, I’m not going to wait– and neither should you.

I’m not suggesting you run to the closest American Apparel and purchase every item in gold lamé.  Not even close.  I am, however, suggesting you bring out your inner golden glow by wearing it right where everyone can see it.  Add some shimmer to your summer beauty routine with these shiny solutions.

Beauty Buzz: Nailed It!

By |March 4th, 2009|Beauty Buzz|


You may or may not be like me, but I have real issues keeping my nails looking presentable.  I think there is actually something wrong with my nails because without fail every time I paint them/get a manicure my nails are chipped within 48 hours.  Every single time.  Though sometimes I still walk around sporting my chipped nails, I realized that I don’t look like a grown up or professional with my wonky nails.  So what is a girl to do? Leave my nails au naturale? Yuck.  Go for tri-weekly manicures? No thanks. I’m far too impatient to sit and let the paint dry.

Ah-ha! I have found the solution to my problems. Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Fast Dry Nail Color.  It dries in 60 seconds (no lie, it does) and looks great with just one coat. The brush is big so it basically covers your nail in two strokes and it comes in 24 different shades (I chose Petal Pusher).  So now, when my nails chip in .45 seconds, I can just repaint them in 60 seconds 🙂

I also love these portable nail polish remover pads from Cutex.  Pack your nail polish and remover in your bag and you’ve got a manicure on the go.  Never again will I have ugly nails!
