Mine is the face you see on AM Style on Saturday mornings, but “it takes a village” to make our show! I am fortunate to work with a dedicated and talented group of people who help make my job easier and infinitely, more fun.
If you watch AM Style on a regular basis, you’ve likely heard me refer to, and mention the name, Anil. She’s been the Fashion Stylist for the show for ... well ... many years and I ADORE her!!!
When you see the models put together head-to-toe in perfectly coordinated looks, that doesn’t just happen by accident. It’s the job of the st... Continue Reading

Getting out of an uncomfortable bra at the end of a long day is sweet relief for many of us. That’s part of the reason Stella Riches created the Genie Bra. She just knew there had to be something more comfortable. She also wanted to create a bra that gave seamless support and a flattering shape.
I don’t mind sharing that I’m a 38DD and my “girls” need support. There are definitely times when I want the structure of an underwire, but when I want comfort and soft support, the Genie Bra is great.
Since its debut, over four million Genie Bras have been ordered fro... Continue Reading

I think we have all been there. You catch a glimpse of yourself in natural light and realize the foundation you thought was your perfect shade wasn’t a match at all, and I am no different.
I’ve tried foundations that made me look orange, made me look like a ghost, made me look dusty and like I needed a good scrub. When it comes to getting the color right, I’ve been told to match my chin, my cheeks, even the inside of my arm.
Over the years, I’ve even had a few people suggest I go a shade lighter than my complexion--still, others said to go a shade darker than my com... Continue Reading

It hits me every year, right around this time... the vacation itch! That longing to travel someplace relaxing, peaceful and definitely near water. It never really dawned on me that every getaway I’ve taken over the last several years has been somewhere near a spectacular water site. Sometimes it’s an incredible man-made water display like the fountains at the Bellagio in Las Vegas:
Sometimes it’s the charm of the beach at Martha’s Vineyard:
There’s just something about water that helps “make” a vacation for me. I’m currently planning this... Continue Reading

Raise your hand if you love shopping! Now, raise your hand is you love swimsuit shopping! If you snatched your hand down faster than a turkey in November, you’re not alone. Swimsuit shopping can cause fear and dread in even the most confident women.
A few years back there was a study that found that women would rather walk on hot coals than wear a swimsuit. But swimsuit season doesn’t have to be an ordeal. There are a few simple things to keep in mind. Play up your assets -- draw attention to the body parts that you like, and divert attention from the ones that y... Continue Reading

I was very deliberate when I put my outfit together for lunch with girlfriends this week. I knew I wanted to wear a necklace I got at "Send The Trend".
Like most of us, I understand the power of accessories. They communicate so much more than our personal style. They can define an occasion -- casual vs. dressy. They can create a mood -- pearls for “classic”, studded leather for “rock and roll”. Accessories can capture a trend, convey a level of status, evoke an era, and transform and outfit into a “look”. What’s a “look”? A “look&r... Continue Reading

I didn’t know there was a name for it at the time, but in the early 90s, I worked with a “stylist”. Someone whose job it was to choose the clothes I would wear -- “put me together” so-to-speak, to make me look my best.
I had been selected for a make-over for a local television show, and that meant, make-up, a new hair-do, and an outfit selected for me by a “style professional”. I remember enjoying the process tremendously. The clothes were fancier and of better quality than I was used to wearing. It was the era of the “power suit”, and if ... Continue Reading

So I needed a way to try out the new Starbucks Verismo coffee machine...
It’s coming up as a Today’s Special Value and they sent me a sample to see how I liked it. Now, it’s no secret I’m not a coffee drinker. I’ll have an occasional cup every once in a blue moon, but I’m no connoisseur. I needed the opinion of coffee drinkers -- and to be specific, Starbucks coffee drinkers.
So, I decided to set it up and use it for a club meeting at my house.
I belong to a women’s civic and social organization and our local chapter holds... Continue Reading

Tracy Turnblad! You know the name if you’re a fan of musical theater, movie musicals, or campy 80's films. Tracy is the lead character in “Hairspray”.
Being known for a heavy-duty hairspray helmet hair-do is fine for a 60's era fictional character, but in “real life 2013” -- undetectable hairspray is a must.
I was given Alterna Hairspray to try this week. I had never used it before. I had the can in my hand walking through the Host Lounge when Pat James-Dementri saw me and said, “I LOVE Alterna hair products”. We chatted for a bit and then I continue... Continue Reading
