The Truth about Vitamin D


There has been a lot of talk lately about the importance of Vitamin D. It is a vitamin that helps us maintain our bone strength and helps elevate your moods. These are two pretty important factors, so it is quite easy to see why there is so much discussion in regards to maintaining your vitamin D levels normal and even more so about how to get vitamin D.

For years we have heard that the best way to get vitamin D is through sun exposure. Yes, we all know that a little sun is very healthy for us. It elevates our mood, gets us out in the fresh air, and usually gets us involved in a little activity, which is a win-win all around. However, it can also be damaging to our skin, therefore sunbathing every day to get your daily dose of vitamin D may not be the best choice.

Lip Fillers


Ok, so about a month ago I went for my usual botox injections and decided to try lip fillers for the first time. This was a truly bold decision as I have heard they are extremely painful and was terrified that my lips would end up looking crazy like a duck.

So after about four hours of numbing cream all over my face, I took the dive and went for the lip fillers. I didn’t want to look like Angelina Jolie, as much as I love her I think that would be too much for me. All I wanted was a little more fullness, something barely noticeable but noticeable at the same time. Yes, my doctor does hate me!

Brazilian Blowout


As the summer heat starts to sizzle so does our hair. For many of us, this means a lot of unruly hair and a whole lot of frizz. Not very pretty and certainly not very attractive. This is why many of us are sprinting to get a Brazilian Blowout ASAP to help control our unruly hair and allow us to look beautiful throughout the summer months.

What is a Brazilian Blowout you may ask? There are so many forms of this treatment right now, but the answer is quite simple. A Brazilian Blowout is a keratin treatment that helps to tame your frizz and infuse your hair with shine. One of my favorite keratin treatments is the Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy Express Blowout. This is a professional use product, however I have used it at home as well. If you know what you are doing it turns out great (again if you know what you are doing, otherwise please visit your local salon).

What I love about this Brazilian Blowout product is that it leaves my hair smooth, stronger and truly resistant to frizz. I can actually walk out the door when it is raining and not fear that my hair is going to expand exponentially as it would without any keratin treatment.

Maintaining your Brazillian Blowout and keratin treatment is easy enough as well. All you need is a good keratin shampoo and conditioner to maintain your hair sleek and beautiful. Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy Keratin care Shampoo and Conditioner are really great at delivering moisture, shine, and maintaining your keratin treatment longer.

The way Brazilian Blowouts work is simple. They create a keratin bond around each hair strand. This bond protects your hair from humidity, heat damage and seals in shine and smoothness. Keratin bonds also fill in any gaps that you may have in your hair shaft creating stronger and healthier hair.

“The Rainbow Comes and Goes”, an Inspiration


I have always been a big fan of Anderson Cooper and have always been fascinated with the way he shies away from speaking of his family. For those of you who may not know (although I believe the whole world knows by now after reading, “The Rainbow Comes and Goes”), Cooper is the son of Gloria Vanderbilt. Yes, his mother is basically New York City Royalty !

Mother’s Day


With Mother’s Day just around the corner, most of us are running around shopping for that special mother, grandmother, teacher, stepmother, etc.…in our life. It is a day full of flowers, food, perfume, and celebration.

Having just experienced my first Mother’s Day just two years ago, I now have a new appreciation for what this day is really about. It is not about the gifts (although getting a fabulous pair of shoes or handbag on that day is always exciting). It is not about the food (however brunch at the Ritz is always great).
