Timeless Beauty

October! Growing up on the East coast, October was always my favorite month. This seems to be true for many people, as the vibrant fall colors are so beautiful, even sometimes spectacular, before finally letting go to the earth and the quietness of winter.

As You Age, You Do Not Become a Lesser Version of Who You Used to Be

When I talk of my experiences working at the makeup counter, when women would come to me, desperate for some relief from the pain of feeling like they were losing their value, as though I were their last hope to have any chance at happiness - well, I am sometimes met with blank stares, as though the person wants to say "uh, isn't it just lipstick you were selling?"

Who Defines Our Beauty?

As the new year begins, we may find ourselves contemplative about what we want in the year to come.  And often, this includes reflection about the person we are and the person we have been.  I believe that, for women, our relationship with our beauty is a big part of who we are, and I think that the new year is an ample opportunity to dig a little deeper into who and what define our beauty.
