The Winning Korean Sheet Face Mask!

After landing in Atlanta the other weekend, my face was looking pretty rough.  I'm talking about dry skin with more apparent and sad looking wrinkles. :(((

During a trip to the ginormous Mall of Georgia (no seriously, its retail floor area is 1.786 million square feet), I stopped by Sephora to get a sheet mask so my poor skin could drink in some moisture. I asked a worker there what she recommended, and she couldn't gush enough about the Korean Farmacy brand masks.  Their masks are made of naturally derived ingredients and free of parabens, formaldehyde, and artificial coloring.  Bonus: They don't test on animals.  Meow.

Since I was looking for moisture, I went for the DEEP MOISTURE hydrating coconut gel mask with echinacea greenenvy. According to the box, this super echinacea ingredient "contains the highest known concentration of Cichoric Acid, a natural photo-essence that provides the plant restorative properties".  HELLO, antioxidants and anti-inflammatories! And the coconut gel is supposed to provide INTENSE hydration and restore your skin's balance. I was sold.

Beyond the beautiful packaging, the fresh cucumber smell was so delightful! It was light and relaxing.

How to Keep That Summer Glow Year Round

As I sit here in New York looking outside my window at the dreary, gray day, one thing keeps running through my mind.  Yup, the tagline to the ever binge-worthy show Game of Thrones:

And with winter comes scaly, pale, dry-as-bone (not unlike that guy above) skin.  

BUT that doesn't have to be the case. 

Here are my tips for keeping your face looking healthy and radiant.

Rooftop Fashion

Throwback to a past photoshoot

I picked the wardrobe...all from H&M. 

My husband hates these pants.  They got that high waisted thing going on that he thinks flattens my butt. I try to explain to him:  I just have a flat butt.
