THE BEAUTE BOARD

JANUARY 2013

NEW BEGINNINGS…Everyone gets a second chance. Forrest Gump is one of my favorite movies – and the New Year’s Eve scene, one of the girls (Carla or Lenore?) voices the sentiment and I think its one of the most truthful moments in the film. I think everyday offers a new beginning, a fresh start, a second chance. What will you do with your second chance?

BLISS THAT'S INCREDI-'PEEL' SPA STRENGTH GLYCOLIC RESURFACING PADSBliss That’s Incredi-‘Peel!’ ($49, blissworld.com). Give skin a fresh start every week by adding in a gentle but effective acid peel to your routine. I use these pads 2x a week for amazing results. →

Take your resolutions to a new level. Instead of vowing to lose weight – get healthy. Instead of simply saving money – donate more to charity. Instead of working harder – play (with your kids) more. Elevating your resolution’s intent will help give it meaning – and make success more likely. And start now – if you haven’t already. Its so easy to push things onto tomorrow, when the moment you’re in is what really counts.

Happy New Year to you all.

Happy Faces!

FIVE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS

ESTEE LAUDER DOUBLE WEAR FOUNDATIONCONJU PRINCESS SOAP1. ESTEE LAUDER DOUBLE WEAR FOUNDATION ($36, esteelauder.com). I never realized how long I’ve been using this bullet-proof foundation. The new formulation is thinner and the color selection has changed – but overall, its still my go-to for long lasting flawless skin.

2. CONJU SOAP ($20, custom purchase). [READ MY REVIEW] Still my #1 favorite cleanser with unsurpassed results.

RIB AND HULL HEIRLOOM TOTE IN OXBLOOD 3. SHEILA G’S BROWNIE BRITTLE ($12.95, browniebrittle.com). Evil. In a good way. In a SHEILA G'S BROWNIE BRITTLEcrispy-caramelized-chocolate-brownie-the-size-of-a-cracker way. Once you crack open this bag – its hard to put down.

4. RIB & HULL HEIRLOOM TOTE IN OXBLOOD ($285, ribandhull.com). I obsessed with this bag. The immaculately deconstructed shape and absence of hardware make this my holy grail of handbags. Before 2013 is out – it will be mine.

5. ALL STATE MAYHEM COMMERCIALS. Whoever thought of this campaign is a genius. When I saw this kid version of their commercials – I couldn’t stop laughing because that’s exactly how my little one acts sometimes!

COSMETIC LEMMINGS

SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE 10.1Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 ($499, samsung.com) It’s not a cosmetic, but this incredible tablet would make updating media and research for Cosmetic Monster more efficient. Since I am already sold (and use) the mobile version of the Note, the ability to customize, S-Pen (which is wonderful for those like me who like pen-to-paper) and new split screen option make this a no-brainer.

I’ll be patiently waiting for the updated version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (10.2?) and hopefully with 4G for total portability.
