My Summer Sun Essentials

Summer Sun EssentialsI love summer and spending time by the pool…in the shade, lol! I do actually get in the water and lay out later in the afternoon when the sun’s burning rays aren’t quite as strong. However, I have very fair skin and burn easily, so I have to be vigilant when it comes to sun protection. I wear sunscreen on my face daily but if I’m going to be spending extended periods of time outside, I never leave the house without my sunscreen … MORE

Product Review: GlamGlow FLASHMUD Brightening Treatment

GlamGlow FLASHMUD Brightening TreatmentI started getting medical grade facial peels last year and I love the results. However, I’m not a huge fan of the expense and down time. Right now I’m extremely busy with events and such so I simply don’t have time to “hide out” for a week while my face recovers. So I began researching some “at home” treatments that promised to deliver similar results and this one kept showing up as a top pick. At $59 I decided to give it a try…. MORE

Turn Up The Volume

IMG_4823I went to have my color touched up today and my hairstylist used a product to style my hair that prompted me to write this post. I have extremely fine, naturally wavy hair and the summer heat and humidity really makes styling it, and keeping it styled, a challenge. Usually the less products I use the better off I am but I still end up using at least 2-3 products when I straighten it; a heat protectant, … MORE

How Integrative Medicine Changed My Life

Recently I ran into one of the executives in my company that I hadn’t seen in over a year. I had referred his wife and daughter to the integrative health practice I go to in Winston-Salem about 2 years ago after he told me about some health issues they were having. He was ecstatic when he began telling me about how well they were doing and said they still make the 100+ mile trek to Winston-Salem … MORE

Casual Chic Date Night Outfit

Casual Chic Date Night OutfitI love simple, classic pieces in neutral colors that I can dress up or down simply by adding a couple of trendy accessories. The majority of my wardrobe consists of basic, seasonless pieces that I can mix and match and will take me effortlessly from day to night. I generally stay away from extremely trendy pieces but will update my looks with a few on trend accessories. From time to time I’ll buy a top, shoes or bag in a pretty, bright hue to add a pop of color. … MORE

Sun Hats – More Than Just A Fashion Statement
