Skincare line: Fresh Visage Please

It's been a tough year for most of the people I know. In many ways. I'm not immune to it; I've had a bit of a wild ride so far this year. That, paired with a glance at iCal and a milestone birthday just down the road, and I decided to take some action. As a creator of a skincare line, I know there's only so much a bottle of product can do. For preventative as well as immediate results, you need to see a dermatologist. And so I did. I wanted to check in with my skin and re-assess my routine looking for things that should be done differently as I age. Mostly, though, I wanted to look fresher and less tired with less makeup. Two hours later, after a microdermabrasion session and 14 some odd little Botox pokes and I have achieved just that.

I wanted a confidence booster and a fresher look and am happy to report that it worked wonders. The microdermabrasion technician used a wand with a light, sandpapery tip that simultaneously scrubbed and sucked up the debris. Didn't hurt at all and my skin was instantly vibrant. The Botox was to stave off the vertical lines between my eyes and subdue my forehead lines back to what they were like when I was in my 20s. Dr. Ruggero from Marianna's in Boulder was a Botox artist. After taking an extended amount of time to assess my health and needs we agreed on a light treatment that only needs to be done 1-2x/year.

I love the results in both outward appearance of smoother, more even skin and in myself--feeling some extra confidence everywhere I go.

Are you a proud shopaholic?

How old were you when you realised you were a shopaholic?To be honest I have only recently realised just how bad I am! I have always loved pretty shiny things even as a young girl but only in the last few years since I started blogging and my make up career have I really noticed how much I spend time looking at products!
How do you feel after shopping, and do you have any weird habits you do after shopping?I feel fantastic after a shopping trip although sometimes a little guilty if I've overspent! I usually bring the products home and show family or friends what I have bought. I also tend to keep them in the packaging or wrapping in my drawers until I use them for some reason.What are your top 5 favourite stores to shop at and why?For clothing I love Topshop and Miss selfridge because I can buy both basics and going out clothing there. My favourite beauty store is Space NK and any department store beauty hall such as Selfridges! I also love Liberty for browsing expensive products …

Feel of the les beiges Chanel foundation Review

So i've put myself on a beauty spending ban. This might seem easy but for a beauty addict like myself it is proving very hard! I have decided to try and use up my existing products before buying things I don't actually NEED. So far I have managed a week without spending which is quite an achievement for me! But this doesn't stop me from window shopping and I have created a wishlist of things I would love to treat myself to when I feel that  I have managed to save up some money and won't feel so guilty about!Here is my beauty wishlist for this Spring:1. Makeupforever HD foundation - Guru makeup/PAM approx £30
I have been desperate to try this for many years but because it is only available in select stores in the UK I haven't had the chance to find my perfect colour and am too nervous ordering a shade online without seeing it first. I think I may be #127 which is a yellow medium tone but am keen to go to the makeup shops in Fulham/Shepherds Bush which stock it. I lo…

Handbag Answer from the Style Coach

Question came in: I have a Juicy bag with torn piping. I have had a really hard time trying to get it fixed. Nordstrom said that they can't do it and all the leather repair places here in Salt Lake say they can't do it. Artbag.com wants $150 to repair it, but it's only a $200 bag. The article says it's easy to do. Where can I get it fixed without breaking the bank?Answer: I've done some investigating on this one. Find a reputable shoe repair place and ask them, they often do handbag work and are really good at leather and detail work. Additionally, you can ask where Nordstrom or Saks (depends on where you live) send their bags for repair, and go there yourself. Nordstrom is probably quoting you so much because they don't want to do it and accept the liability of it not turning out perfectly. Be open to a creative solution from your repair place of choice.Another option is to take a picture of the bag and send it to someone pretty senior at Juicy and see if they…
