Summer is upon us, with longer days , more time spent outdoors (if you live in the Northeast!), which includes time in the sun and at the beach. Should you switch up your skincare routine? I’ve got all the details! Here’s the post on Silk Therapeutics’ website!    Switch to a Serum As the air gets warmer and more humid, the moisturizer that sustained you during the dry winter months may be too heavy for summertime. Consider switching to a hydrating serum instead of a cream to wear under your sunscreen for day and over your corrective serums at night. Stay in the Shade (andRead More →

“…I’ve made it my business to observe fathers and daughters. And I’ve seen some incredible, beautiful things. Like the little girl who’s not very cute – her teeth are funny, and her hair doesn’t grow right, and she’s got on thick glasses – but her father holds her hand and walks with her like she’s a tiny angel that no one can touch. He gives her the best gift a woman can get in this world: protection. And the little girl learns to trust the man in her life. And all the things that the world expects from women – to be beautiful, to sootheRead More →

Want to know what’s on skincare guru and founder of Rhonda Allison skincare line’s shelf? She’s shared with me! Rhonda: “I use the Minus 10 Collection, and for cleansing I use the Foaming Peptide Cleanser and the Pumpkin Cleanser. I used to use just the Pumpkin cleanser and now that I am in my late 60’s I’ve added the Foaming Peptide. I’m almost 70 now… and your skin changes with every decade. I don’t peel my skin as often as I did in my 30’s and 40’s. During those decades I focused on correcting my skin and rejuvenating it and now that I am almost intoRead More →

  When considering breast reconstruction, a big concern for many patients is post-operative pain. Implant vs DIEP flap: Which is less painful? Many women believe breast reconstruction with implants is less painful since the procedure is less invasive and has a shorter operative time, but studies have shown this is not the case. Although the DIEP flap procedure is more invasive and takes longer than traditional implant reconstruction, DIEP flap patients experience less pain. The DIEP flap minimizes muscle trauma and preserves all the patient’s abdominal and chest muscles. Most implant-based breast reconstruction involves placing the implant under the chest (pectoral) muscle. This requires releasingRead More →

Happy Monday beauties!!! I had the opportunity to review a product called “MONQ” and I wanted to share my thoughts with you! What MONQ is: MONQ is a personal essential oil diffuser that you inhale from through your mouth and exhale through your nose. When you exhale through your nose as opposed to your mouth, molecules pass the olfactory nerve endings in your upper nasal passageway. This action is the first step to noticeable therapeutic effects. While the aromatherapy effect from the olfactory nerves starts immediately, it usually does not peak for at least a few minutes. The company recommends that you take a gentle breath or twoRead More →

    Happy Thursday loves! I have something so special in store for you today. When asked to describe my friend Gabrielle Brick, a force comes to mind.
