So, head over there and check it all about me, like what I do in my spare time, what I do in my real life and how I started & came up with the name of this site!
Remember when I told you that one of my resolutions this year was that I wanted to find my perfect foundation? Well, the search is on.
Now, I was naive and really thought it was going to be as simple as just finding my correct shade. Really, that is just one piece of the puzzle for me. In reality, this is more of a lifestyle change for this tinted moisturizer gal. This is making realize that it takes me more time to get ready since I have to wait for all of my layers of moisturizer & primer to “set” before I get the next layer on before I can get to the foundation, instead of just slathering on my TM. It also isn’t as forgiving about slacking skin maintenance. Since it is tends to be thicker/more opaque than my TM’s, it doesn’t do well with unexfoliated skin, no matter how many layers of potions I have put on prior.
And the variety. Oh gawd, it is freaking overwhelming. Drugstore? Department store? Matte? Illuminating? Mineral? 3in1/Multitasking? Or, finding a color match, but the product is discontinued now? Like, really, so much to choose from – this pic is just a sampling of what I am trying.
So, I’m just getting started. I’m trying to wear one at a time for a couple of weeks, but sometimes it’s just a matter of what is within arms reach, ya know?
Tell me – what foundations to I need to make sure are on my “try me” list?

This week as been all about Fashion Week in New York. Lots of pretty young things getting all dolled up to walk down the runways in the latest, and greatest, styles. Sometimes it’s easy to forget that there are amazingly stylish folks that are older than the runway models and I have found a list that is chock full of 40+ wonderfulness! Thanks to “The Citizen Rosebud” who has put together an amazing list of Fashion bloggers who are over the age of 40:
Seriously, I want to be as awesome as so many of the folks on this list when I grow up!
It’s that time of year again – Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York City. I won’t be going this season because my child turns 16 on Sunday, smack dab right in the middle of the week & I can’t miss that. But, have no doubt, I have told him how inconsiderate it was for him to decide to be born 3 weeks early, to conflict with MBFW 16 years from then. He should have known better.
So, I will be back here, enjoying all of the coverage online. I was happy to hear that starting tomorrow, February 7th thru February 14th, IMG Fashion has teamed up with Rightster to show a live stream from every fashion show at Lincoln Center this season. The streams will be available on the MB Fashion Week website and on their Facebook page. I’m honestly thrilled by this, since I’m going to have a better view from my couch, with my laptop, than I probably would have had inside the show.
Start looking at the schedule now to plan out your viewing strategy for the upcoming season!
