Don’t ya just love a good deal?  I love finding products that are equal in quality of those very expensive ones – yet a fraction of the cost.  And it’s icing on the cake when you can get them at a local pharmacy or market.  If you’re like me, I live a long way from a Sephora!  Here are some great beauty products that SheFINDS found.  Enjoy!   *Don’t forget to add your name to the email list in the upper right...

OK, there’s always a little down time after a holiday.  Whether the big day lives up to expectations or just was a total flop, one always has a little jet lag afterwards.  I don’t know if your Mother’s Day was off the chart wonderful and you had one of those Norman Rockwell Sundays or you just got through it—for what ever reason.  BTW, you’d be surprised at the numbers of parents’s who are estranged from their offspring.  Here is one of many articles on the subject of parent/children non existent relationships. My favorite is #4—don’t get me started.  That’s a whole different article.  But back to recouping.  I thought this would be a wonderful time to share some of the natural beauty secrets and treatments that I’ve run across.  There are some that are...

This has promise!  Target, who put the zing in designer clothes at real people prices, has added luxury beauty products to their stores.  I’m talking real luxury goodies that usually have high dollar prices—as in Borghese and Vichy among others.  If you look closely, you’ll recognize the product containers.  For instance, that lipstick case looks a lot like the Chanel lipstick case.  I can’t wait to try them.  Click here to see the high-end products that SheFinds touts.  Let me know if you do—I’d love to get feedback.  By the way, you have added your name to the email list.  Right?  No?  Then look in the upper right hand corner and put your name on the list so you’ll get more insider tips! Here is the direct link to the Target luxury...

I was so excited when I saw the title, Hot Older Women, in StyleCaster.  Because I work on the theory, safety in numbers, I constantly look for articles about women my age.  Yes, I know all the cute little ways to say it, women who have matured, it’s only a number, sixty is the new forty, cougar (or like someone told me, a snow leopard)— but let’s face it it happens to us all.  It’s called aging.  So, as I was ooooing and ahhhhhing over Jessica Lange (64), Linda Rodin (65), Lauren Hutton (69), and Catherine Deneuve (70), it dawned on me I had been sucked in again.  I was comparing myself to women who are exceptional.  Exceptional.  E-X-C-E-P-T-I-O-N-A-L.  I looked up the definition and I quote “forming an exception or rare instance; unusually excellent”.  I...

More bang for the buck…

“Nobody should go broke to have good skin” says Dr. Jaliman in Daily Makeover.  I like how she thinks and I really like the convenience of picking up beauty products at the local Walgreens or even HEB.  Click here to read the article and see the everyday products she recommends.  Why spend a lot of money on department store products when you can get the same results for less money?  Y.M.T.M.L. (You may thank me later!) FYI-Since writing this life altering report, my friend Sandy told me about a friend of her’s that uses Lava soap for an exfoliator—-on his face!  Twice a day!  Sandy said his face has NO wrinkles and he is well over 60.  I’m going to try it first as a body exfoliator. BTW, I got on the internet and...
