I try to start off every new year fresh and vow to take good care of myself by exercising more, eating right, and getting more sleep (the usual stuff). And when it comes to fashion and beauty, I want to look my best and never “get caught” in an bad outfit or without a …
One appointment I never miss is my hair color and cut at Sassoon Chicago. It seems like yesterday but Lauren and I have both been going to Sassoon for hair color and cuts for over 11 years – back when we first started Second City Style! Read about Lauren’s #SassooonStyle at Sassoon in New York. …
Chances you or at least one of your friends and family members is addicted to Instagram, Twitter, Vine or generally loves to post pictures of themselves and anyone they happen to be with on various social media sites.

My perfume preferences, especially when it comes to the warmer months, are light florals, clean greens and fruits. Oh and I’m a sucker for roses, which you will see by my selections. Hopefully at least one of these picks will be of interest.
Believe it or not I’ve actually been asked what I carry in my makeup bag. Probably because it’s usually jam packed or it could just be idle curiosity.

Who really wants to go under the knife in the name of maintaining a youthful appearance? Not me. It’s not to say I wouldn’t consider it, but fillers have come such a long way, I don’t feel the need to run out and do anything drastic, painful and expensive. At least not yet. So when I heard of the non-surgical BaseLift developed and perfected by Dr. Bracci at Verve Medical Cosmetics I had to learn everything about it!
