beauty iconsCharlotte Tilbury has gorgeous makeup that I’ve absolutely fallen in love with.  The Limited Edition Beauty Icons Gift Box will be adored by women everywhere this holiday season. It’s packed with her best-selling mini products that are wonderful. Start out with the Mini Magic Cream, a great moisturizing  favorite of models and celebrities. I am not a lipstick wearing kind of gal, but the Mini K.I.S.S.I.N.G Penelope Pink is the exception to my rule.  The shade is pretty and neutral, adding just the right amount of color to your lips.  It’s hydrating and doesn’t dry out your lips, which is important to me, and you can layer it with a lip gloss for extra shine.  I love the beautiful complementing  Lip Cheat Pillow Talk lip liner.  I adore the Wonder Glow cream which adds just the right shimmer to light up your face, perfect for going out this holiday season.  Included in the box is also the Mini Full Fat Lashes, which finishes off a perfected, pulled together look, flawlessly.  I love every single product in this collection.

In addition to gorgeous cosmetics, Charlotte Tilbury also has my new favorite evening fragrance, Scent of a Dream.  This perfume smells delicious and like the holidays to me. Created for the moods of positivity, love, light, power, and sex, this scent is seductive and rich.

I never cared about purses before I was introduced to Kate Spade.  It was love at first sight.  My biggest splurges all seem to involve Kate Spade.  So, it would be fitting that once I smelled Walk on Air eau de perfume, I would instantly love it.  This soft scent featuring lily of the valley, magnolia and lily is perfect for every day, giving off a very clean and fresh aroma, perfect for daytime.  I love the bottle, too, that completely carries on the look I love about her products.  You can purchase this fragrance at Nordstrom.




simplehuman mirror

For perfect makeup application in any setting, I absolutely adore Simplehuman’s Sensor Mirror Pro.  This mirror is so much more than just a mirror.  Imagine being able to see yourself in 50 different light settings, being able to magnify your image to perform beauty tasks, and even be able to use an app or Alexa to control it.  The app in and of itself is incredible to help you look your best, wherever you are.   You get all of that in the Sensor Mirror Pro. You will wonder how you ever lived without it before. You’ll feel like a million bucks because you will know you always look your best.




When applying makeup, I’ve learned the hard way that having the right tools for application is crucial.  I’ve found the greatest foundation brush that I want to share with you.  The Sigma F80 Flat Kabuki brush is a must-have for a clean and smooth finish. It doesn’t absorb the product, either, which is great.  The bristles are incredibly soft, with a dense and flat surface.  Who would have guessed that the tools are just as important as the product you put on your face?  You can pick up your  own brush at Nordstrom.


butter London


Painting the town red during the holiday season looks best when you’ve literally painted your fingers and toes red with butter London nail polish. Smooth and gorgeous finish, with a shine unmatched anywhere else, wearing it is the perfect finishing touch to any outfit.







Oh, what I wish I would have paid attention to when I was younger and had flawless skin.  My 40-year-old self now regrets spending a little too much time in the sun and has felt the effects of many nights going to bed with my makeup on and not being as kind to my skin as I could have been.  Thankfully, there are products that can help rectify what I have done. Check out  Robin McGraw Revelation products : welcome back youth retinol serum, foaming joy, purifying facial cleanser, hydra quench moisturizing night cream. These are literally heaven in a bottle!

For big results in a little package, check out Bed Head’s Attitude Overhaul, the 1 inch Pinkaholic Mini ceramic straightener, perfect to fill stockings this holiday season.  I love this straightener, as it eliminates frizz, giving my hair extra shiny and straight hair.  I love that this straightener is perfect for travel since it has such a small profile.
