…to have jewels on your fingers!

 

Keyword: jewel tones, nail polish

I’ve always loved things that shine and glitter…what girl doesn’t? I was very happy to find out that jewel toned nail polishes would be very popular this season. While I am a sucker for hot pinks and neon colors in the summer time, I’ve always found that come fall I am pulled into wearing browns and deep oranges that seem to get kind of boring for my rock-star-like personality. (Yeah, I like to pretend I’m a rockstar…I’m even known to bust out a tune while cutting my clients hair sometimes….a girl can dream!)  This is the perfect solution to keeping your nails from feeling drab.  Choose something that glitters if you are feeling funky, or something with a simple shimmer if you want to be a little more classy. And if you are feeling more sophisticated, stick to a creamy texture. Colors like Sally Hansen’s Ruby Rush, YSL’s Moonlight Blue, or SpaRitual’s Rhythm of Life make me much more excited for the autumn season!

Seriously, what’s with their wardrobes over there?

Keyword: apple, steve jobs, tim cook, iphone 5

uhhhhhhhhhh is anyone else sensing a pattern here?  And i’m not talking about the phones.

Apple finally released word that on Tuesday, Oct. 4, newly appointed CEO Tim Cook will make his first lengthy public appearance to unveil the upcoming iPhone 5. Quickly, i’ll just say that I am first in line for the iphone 5, I have been a Blackberry and Droid user for the past 4 years and I’m finally making the switch. I’m ecstatic about the news and anxious to hear what else is discussed.

With that being said- let’s talk about Fashion!    Seriously, am I the only one who read this news and instantly thought “oh my god, Tim Cook wears almost the same exact outfits that Steve Jobs did.  Old school classic jeans, (optional) belt, and some sort of dark colored shirt on top.   One of the most profitable companies in the world, and they send their CEO’s out on stage dressed like they’re working behind the scenes at some high  school theatre performance.

Don’t worry Tim, don’t worry Steve, you’re allowed to dress up nicely when you are presenting the world with a product they have been begging for.  I am all for keeping it neat and conservative, but come on guys, atleast throw a little color in there to let me know you’re alive!

Now, give us an iPhone 5 … NOW!!!  We have been waiting foreeeeever.  My Blackberry freezes and resets itself like 14 times a day for no reason and I can’t take it anymore!

An appropriate article for today!

When I turned 20 I was told how important it is to use products that will keep your skin looking young.  When I tured 25, I actually started to listen to this advice!  Now that I am 30, I am so glad I took this advice and still keep a great routine today!

 

While out to dinner this weekend with my family, my mom had mentioned it was my birthday (yes, they all sang to me!). Well, apparently the kid working the front thought I was a teenager! The staff had to ask how old I was turning and they didn’t believe me!  How’s that for a confidence booster?!  I know I have my genes to thanks, but I also know the importance of following a daily beauty schedule!

 

So what do I do to keep my skin looking as young as possible? Well, I’m glad you asked because I was going to tell you anyway ;)

 

 

-Never go to sleep with makeup on!! Ever!!!  Always wash your face before you go to bed. Make sure to get ALL your eye makeup off!  Find that eye makeup removers are too rough or greasy? Take a little moisturizer on a q-tip and use it to get all that extra liner and mascara off!

 

-Wash your face twice a day. Once in the morning, once before bed.  Too many washings can dry your skin out.

 

-Find the perfect moisturizer for your am routine and one for your pm routine (sometimes they can be the same one).

 

 

- Use an exfoliant at least once a week.  I actually use a light one every day. It’s not too rough on my skin and I feel it gets right down to my pores. You have to find what works for you!

 

-Try not to over-use your makeup.  If you don’t have anything to cover, why cover it? Don’t load your face up with foundations if it is  not needed.  Wear the least amount of daily makeup as you can!  I am abe to get away with just a mineral powder with an occasional spot treatment of concealer.

 

-SPF!! I use a moisturizer that has an SPF in it already. Tanning beds are a no no!  In the summer I am guilty of sitting on a beach all day. I do like to get a little color, but I never over-do it!

 

 

-Sleep!! This one is most important and my favorite!  Make sure you get yourself enough beauty sleep! You don’t want to look tired and worn out!

 

There are plenty more things you can do to help keep your skin feeling great at 30, 40, 50, even 60!  You just have to take care of it!  Don’t abuse your body. Treat it with care.
