For the Mother’s Day issue of Pristeen Magazine, I was asked to model with my daughter, Celestina. You can read the behind-the-sceens look at what happens for a magazine shoot HERE. The issue just came out and it’s beautiful!
In today’s world of selfies, snapchat – where the photos literally disappear, and your kids having more active social lives than you do…..it’s nice to have beautiful photos of just you and your daughter. Bonus that it appears in a magazine where you got to spend the day with your friends, have your photos shot by a brilliant photographer, styled by an amazing stylist, and hair and makeup were done by a fabulous duo.
The moms were asked to give our best beauty advice. Here’s mine:
Hair: Love what you’ve got, and yet, don’t be afraid to improve it….especially if you can do things that aren’t permanent. Try a hair color that washes out. Or try temporary hair extensions that you can put on and remove for a specific event.
Skin: “Beauty Juice” is the BEST for glowing skin from the inside out. Blend carrots, spinach, tomatoes, celery and blueberries with water for a juice that keeps your skin radiant and will have all of your friends asking what you’ve done.
Makeup: No matter what the trend, wear colors that flatter your skin-tone. And look like the prettiest version of you. It’s not about looking like someone else. Work with your best features so YOU are the standout (not your makeup).

Well, one thing that is always true for construction is it takes longer than you expect. Even when your rockstar contractor has everything (and everyone) coordinated to the minute….things happen.
Like your stove having specific instructions from the manufacturer as to where to put the gas line….and when the stove arrives….well, let’s just say the stove didn’t follow it’s own guidelines of where the gas was supposed to be located. Naturally you find all of this out on a Friday, so you can’t do anything until Monday. *sigh*
So the current state of our kitchen is our stove is “living” in our living room. But it’s so close I can practically taste it. Seriously I’m jonesing for a healthy home cooked meal like crazy right now. And when we get it finished, I’ll share some of my favorite recipes with you!
At least I got to get all dressed up for the bridal shower of one of my BFF’s. And show you that you can still look like YOU are totally organized even when your house is not totally organized. LOL! At least my legs are nice and smooth (thanks to Venus).
Wishing you a beautiful week my friend.
*I’ve been using Venus razors exclusively for almost 20 years, so I’ve always been a huge fan of smooth, sexy legs. Thank you Venus for sending me your fabulous NEW Gilette Venus Swirl to try! Love it! (And so does my daughter who took mine for herself). #choosetosmooth #gotitfree

Now that hubby is healing from his 3 back-to-back surgeries from Oct, Nov, & Dec, we are able to get out and do more. Add to that the kitchen will be done in a few days, which means date night is a great excuse to go out to eat. (But we are all anxious to eat REAL food from our home soon! Gosh, we miss home cooked food.)
For this perfect weather I felt like showing off my legs and my shoulders. *PLEASE accentuate your favorite body part – especially when you are going out with your red-blooded man. Feeling sexy for yourself – and your relationship – is a healthy thing! It doesn’t matter what size you are. It doesn’t matter how old you are. You deserve to feel va-va-voom. 😉
PS – Here are a few other off-the-shoulder date night dresses you may like too.
