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.

Hair oil product with LED accelerator Colour sustain shampoo Elixir Ultime hair

I can't believe its April already! As a new month begins, I have suddenly run out of some essentials so I thought I would post my empties and whether I will be repurchasing or not! I have included some skincare, haircare and general grooming products. Luckily I haven't run out of any makeup pieces as I have been stocking up on mascaras and powders just in case of emergency ;)

Here are my empties! L-R Dermalogica soothing eye makeup remover, Blanx white shock toothpaste with LED accelerator, Mitchum advanced control deodorant stick, Xen Tan dark lotion, Ojon Colour sustain shampoo, Kerastase Elixir Ultime hair oil.

I have had some of these over a year whilst others have been recent finds so here is a run down of what I won't be repurchasing and why!

Mitchum advanced control - Again this is not a bad product by any means but running around at work I was not kept completely dry with this product so I am still on the hunt for the perfect deodorant! The mitchum brand has impre…

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…
