Holiday Fashion Triple Play
Well darling girls, the countdown has begun! It is a mere 7 days till the biggest shopping day of the entire year — Black Friday, and just 10 days till Cyber Monday, the biggest online shopping day of the year. I have been in training for this event for the past several weeks, building my endurance by running stairs at the gym so I can avoid time-consuming elevators and escalators. Perfecting my shouldering-people-out-of-the-way skilz to insure maximum access to awesome sales items. And last but not least, working on my snatch-and-grab speed to enable me to reach over the shoulders of slower shoppers to snap up that purple patent clutch I've had my eye on for weeks.
But a chic and stylish fashionista must be prepared mentally as well as physically. That's why my fabulous posse of fashionista friends and I hold our annual Black Friday Planning and Reconnaissance Party. We do this every year — we talk turns hosting, and everyone comes armed with glossy mags and sales fliers from all the major department stores, as well as their list of must-have items. We order in pizza and then we lay out a plan of action for achieving maximum success at the Black Friday sales. We decide which sales would be better to shop en masse, and when it would be better to divide and conquer. Practical, sensible and a great excuse to get together with friends!
This year, since the economy is taking its time making the predicted upswing, it is more important than ever to make the most of those Black Friday sales. Which is why I've decided to focus on a few key pieces which can be mixed, matched and paired with items already in my closet, enabling me to stretch my fashion dollar as well as flaunt my style sense! One key piece worn three different ways — a Holiday Triple Play!
Sleek sweater dress. Look for something that skims the body and flatters your figure. Not too short, perhaps a couple of inches above the knee.
Ultra Feminine Blouse. Look for a blouse with ultra feminine details like ruffles or pleats.
Embellished Jeans. A great pair of jeans will take you anywhere, but these gorgeous denim jeans with rhinestone studs are to-die for!
Well darling girls, I think that's a pretty good start. It will at least give me a reference point for all the bargains I am bound to find in my Black Friday shopping adventures!
Ta ta for now!,

If I could go back in time and have a do-over, the first thing I would do is go back to my teenage years where I spent countless hours lying in the sun, broiling my fair skin in an attempt at the perfect tan…and I would NOT do it! How I wish now that I would have listened to my grandmother, who was always warning me to stay out of the sun. Or at least wear sunscreen. Because I am paying for it now with fine lines and wrinkles. Lucky for me my dermatologist introduced me to Renova, to help reduce the signs of sun exposure.
The fountain of youth is a myth, but so is the idea that you can do nothing about your aging skin. The majority of the skin changes we think of as aging are actually caused by sun exposure. As part of a comprehensive skin care and sun avoidance program, RENOVA 0.02% can reduce the signs of photodamage, helping to smooth out fine facial wrinkles.
While I may not be able to time travel, I can start treating my skin better by using Renova at night, and an excellent moisturizer and sunscreen during the day. I'll keep you posted on my progress!

Return to Beauty
Are you looking for the perfect gift for all the girly girls in your life - mom, sister, best friend? I suggest a festively wrapped copy of the fabulous new book, Return to Beauty; Old-World Recipes for Great Radiant Skin, by Narine Nikogosian.
This informative book offers beauty and skin regimens made from fresh ingredients that can be found right in your kitchen. With recipes for winter, spring, summer, and fall, you can look beautiful throughout the year. Narine Nikogosian's natural and inexpensive products can be whipped up in less than ten minutes.

There are even recipes for snacks, smoothies and more, all beneficial to your health and well being. (My favorite is The Lioness Snack!) Narine also provides recipes based on astrological signs, such as for Scorpio, a Gracious Grapefruit Mask made of grapefruit,egg yolk, and soothing honey to rejuvenate your skin even after a late night.
Narine is from a long line of Armenian women who have been harnessing the powers of nature to create everlasting beauty. For the first time, she reveals her secrets so that you can have star-worthy skin.
