Silky Smooth Skin

How often do you moisturize? For me, I do every time I shower. Immediately after drying off, I lather on the lotion all over and it makes my skin feel great, and I feel clean and serene. If I I don’t use lotion right after the shower, I go crazy. My skin feels dry, itchy and thirsty! I’ve used a variety of lotions over the years, and I thought I’d share a few with you.

There are some that smell delicious, some that are creamy and some that are great for irritable skin. I don’t know about you, but I have super sensitive skin. I get razor burn easily, and I always have to make sure I don’t leave cheap earrings in long, otherwise my ears turn red and itchy. I love to indulge with the smell good lotions, but I use sensitive skin lotions on a daily basis to keep my skin calm.


Body butters are great if you feel like you really need to quench your skin’s thirst, but they can feel very heavy.

Red on the Red Carpet

I’m absolutely loving this vivacious red Donna Karan dress worn by Nina Dobrev at the Emmys tonight.

Sofia Vergara also knocked it out of the park in this coral Vera Wang gown.

Missoni Madness & Other Things

Yes, I’m hopping on the Missoni bandwagon – but really, how can you not? All fashionistas have been anxiously awaiting this moment!

When I first tried to catch a glimpse on the Target site, it was down! I just entered the site and the first thing I see, I love (and it is already out of stock).

Missoni is known for its prints and one can definitely see why. All I’m thinkin’ is GROOVY BABY!

In other news, (my own little world news) I just purchased a new book to read entitled Valley of the Dolls by Jacqueline Susann. Published in the 1960s, the book is essentially about a group of girls living in NYC trying to make it in the entertainment industry, while riding the wild ride of pill popping. Being that I love Hunter S. Thomspon novels, I tend to like the drug-induced, intense and mind-boggling books. The cover intrigued me, probably due to my latest obsession with all things retro-chic.

As it turns out, the author won the Best Dressed Woman in Television award four times.

 Hey, check out that print! 😉
