Nature's Beauty. Leeks

You might walk past leeks in the produce section, but I'd consider adding them to your list. Use them as you would onions, scallions, shallots or garlic. Slice thin, and soak in a bowl of water to remove any dirt or residue before cooking.
I enjoy roasting a whole chicken or tri-tip roast with lots of vegatables and leeks, as well as adding to homemade soups or stock. Try it.

Eclectic. Meadham Kirchoff LFW Spring 2011

I like it; the delicate dress, rainbow hair and the floral tiara! The eye make-up is reminiscent of the Stanley Kubrick film classic 'A Clockwork Orange'.

Channel Your Inner Wonder Woman With MAC

In beauty news this week I'm excited to know that MAC will be releasing a limited edition cosmetics line featuring fictional DC comic icon Wonder Woman.
Look for these fun must-haves in March with everything from lipstick, eyeliner, nail polish, brushes to bronzer with artwork by Micheal Allred. I can't wait to add a bit of Wonder Woman pizazz to my makeup collection and with names like 'Lady's Justice', 'Defiant', 'Valiant' and 'Spinning Transformation" who can resist?

I Like Those Shoes. Prada

Prada Spring/Summer 2011

Nail Art. Sally Hansen's Salon Effects

The affordable drug store brand Sally Hansen will launch two new products this spring. One of which will be 'Salon Effects' nail polish strips coming in March, which I can't wait to try. With all of the options (24 to be exact) this should be a beauty must have to keep on hand for those who can't get in for those 'minx' manicures or simply save more than a few dollars.  The strips will retail for $9.99. Another addition will be new colors with names like 'Runway Red', 'Casting Call' and 'Model Behavior' by designer Prabal Gurung whose models wore custom Hansen colors to compliment his  2011 Spring/Summer Women's Collection.

Beauty Makeover. Chanel Spring 2011

The price might be steep for some with the Spring 2011 Les Perles Collection, but the colors in the new Ombres Perlees de Chanel palette are versatile. Whether creating a luminous understated look or something with more drama, it's all there. Flatter your eyes with just enough shimmer. Chanel shadows always have nice pigment and stay put once applied.
I just tossed out countless old shadows at the top of this new year, ready to make way for new fresh colors.


Dream big today (and everyday)! Work to make your dreams come true.
