Wow…FACT: Why are lips so quick to age? Lips are at their fullest at 14 years of age: after that, the upper lip starts to thin out. The skin of the lips is thinner than the rest of the skin on your body. Lip skin only consists of three to five cellular layers instead of up to sixteen layers elsewhere. In fact, it’s this thin skin that accounts for the pinkish color we see in the picture above.
Use Lip-Lift Lip Conditioner (regularly $18.50 on sale this month for $15) for super soft and hydrated lips and your lipstick (regularly $20 on sale this month for $16) will glide on smoothly and last longer. With the power of hyaluronic acid, Lip Lift keeps lips clinically hydrated to avoid “dry lip syndrome”, the tendency to draw moisturizing ingredients from your lipstick, leaving dry pigment sitting on the lips looking older and uneven.Lip-Lift Tint in Gold, Petal (warm) and Blush and Blackberry (cool) give lips an alluring pout and veil of color. They feature the same advanced lip conditioning complex found in Lip-Lift but with a hint of natural looking color. (usually $18.50 on sale this month for $15.)Lip Pencils are usually $16 on sale this month for $13.Lip Gloss usually $18 on sale this monthfor $15.

Acquiring a couple of new pieces each season that work with what you already own is a great way to freshen your wardrobe without breaking the bank. If you haven’t overhauled your closet in a while, the new year is a great time to do that. Partnering with a skilled stylist that knows what should stay and what should go is a wise investment. A fresh set of expert eyes can also help you save time and money shopping as adding just the right things is easier when you have a focused shopping list that matches your style and budget. I am happy to assist you.

February 2015 Special Offer Details


Okay, ladies! The cold, wintry weather continues to wreak havoc on our skin. Consider “upping” your skincare regimen. I recommend the following –all discounted if ordered during the month of February.

Super Rich Moisture Cream: Lower humidity, cold and wind can cause skin irritation disrupting normal skin balance. A creamier moisturizer can help restore your skin. This product positively quenches dry skin. Usually $28.50 on sale for $25.

Daily Defense Rich Moisturizer: a heavy, rich moisturizer that also superhydrates. Usually $26.50 on sale for $23.50.

Lip-Lift: This product fills in and minimizes lip lines with collagen blended with Vitamin E. Your lips feel plumper, smoother and well-hydrated. It also contains sunblock. Usually $17 on sale for $15.

Adrien Arpel Eye Perfection Cream: This product reduces puffiness, dark circles and wrinkles. Usually $28 on sale for $25.

Exfoliators: Your skin needs to be exfoliated more in winter months because your skin cells build up more quickly, making skin look dull. I recommend once or twice a week. Try Papaya Scrub for a highly effective sloughing treatment. Usually $27 on sale for $24. Or the Honey Almond Scrub provides a deep pore cleansing. Usually $27 on sale for $24.

May 2014 Special Offer Details


Spring has arrived — at last!! It is always fun to get a few new things each season, or perhaps you have a special occasion to shop for, or maybe you have been thinking about adding just the right accessories to update or complete an outfit or two. Or maybe you would like to give a gift to someone very special to you for Mother’s Day or graduation. 

Whatever your scenario may be, I am discounting my personal shopping service by 15%.  So instead of $100 per hour it will cost you $85 per hour if you make your appointment or request a gift certificate during the month of May, even if your appointment isn’t until June or July.

For those of you who do not know how my personal shopping service works, let me explain.

Wearing beautiful clothes is a great feeling — shopping for them can be pure torture. Hire me to shop for your clothing and accessories, whether for every day as a professional or as a stay at home mom, for weekends, for a job interview, for that special date, because you have lost weight, gained weight or for a special occasion.  

I begin by creating a no-cost personal profile to help determine your lifestyle, the image you wish to project, your clothing preferences, and budget. With this information, I develop a focused shopping strategy that will best meet your needs and budget.

I make shopping cost-effective by saving you time, helping you avoid mistakes, and maximizing the use of each article of clothing. I explain why I select each item and why I reject others so it also becomes a learning experience. And because I am budget conscious, I can possibly save you more than the cost of my personal shopping service.

April 2014 Special Offers

Spring has finally arrived!! To celebrate and because I think it is important to review what you own so you know what you have and what you need before you head out to purchase anew, I am discounting my closet surgery service by 20%!! So instead of $100 per hour it will cost you $80 per hour if you make your appointment during the month of April.


For those of you who do not know what closet surgery is let me explain. Too many of us have closets jam-packed with clothing we never (or shouldn’t) wear. When I perform surgery on your closet, I make sure that all items you wear close to your face are in colors that become you, and that everything fits, is somewhat in style and easily accessible.


I sort through your clothing and eliminate (with your permission) those items that are dated, in unbecoming colors and do not fit. I then “shop” in your closet and create outfits by pulling together pieces you may never have thought about wearing together including accessories. Most clients take pictures of the multiple newly constituted outfits and refer to them when getting dressed.


My goal is for clients to open their closets and feel like they have many options as opposed to feeling like they have nothing to wear. I also make a list of items clients may consider purchasing to update and complete their wardrobe.


I also provide tips for organizing, so it is easy to find what you are looking for. Either you can donate the items we eliminate or I can take them to an organization representing the homeless and get you a tax deduction, or if the items are appropriate, to a consignment store.


You can see a demonstration of me performing closet surgery or read testimonies from clients who have had me do closet surgery for them on my website.  E-mail me with any questions or if you wish to make an appointment.
