A childhood interest for art and design grew into a passion for all things beauty. Currently, I’m still smitten.


Wage War against Winter Skin

If you're struggling with irritated skin, simplify your skincare routine for maximum results. A few things I stock at home to win the battle are:

VASELINE PETROLEUM JELLY: Tried and true, it heals everything from chapped lips, cracked cuticles, chaffed cheeks, softens feet and removes stubborn eye makeup. It has to be one of the cheapest dual treatments around/$5.00 at local drugstore. Psst! New mommies: LANSINOH LANOLIN works just as well for cuticles and lips! About $9.00 at BabiesRUs.

DOVE GENTLE EXFOLIATING NOURISHING BODY WASH with NUTRIUM MOISTURE SENSITIVE SKIN: Why not start moisturizing with your cleanser? Contains rich ingredients like soybean and sunflower oil which penetrate the skin deep down to replenish moisture and it rinses clean without stripping skin of natural oils/$9.00 at

PALMERS COCOA BUTTER: Although their lotion was the winner of the 2010 Cosmopolitan Beauty Award and the 2010 You & Your Wedding Bridal Beauty Award, I prefer the Cocoa Butter Formula in the jar. Loaded with Vitamin E, it softens dry skin, smooths scars and tones skin. It's a family favorite for avoiding stretch marks too. After a bath, I mix it with my lotion to seal in softness. Feels delicious after shaving my legs!

Let me know what's your favorite remedy to combat dry itchy winter skin.

    I have a lipgloss recco... NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss. My favorite shade right now is 129. It looks like a bright pink in the tube but it comes on very light and smooth. LOVE IT...
