As many of you know, Mother’s Day was this past Sunday. I must say, I feel so very fortunate to still have my mother in my life, and to also be a mother myself. As I write this, I remember a moment I had with Daniel last week while taking him to school. He asked me, “Mom, did you always know you wanted a child?” I told him, “Yes,” to which he replied, “At what age did you know?” I answered, “I knew I wanted to have a child since I was 12 years old.” His questions didn’t stop there, but it was at that moment that I realized how lucky I am to have Daniel in my life. For the last 10 years, my life seems to have more of a purpose. Having Daniel was the best gift I could have ever given myself. The unconditional love one receives from her child is irreplaceable, just as the unconditional love we receive from our mothers.
Every day, I make sure to talk with my Mom. Our conversations are priceless, and ever since the loss of my Father, I know to never take our talks and time together for granted. My Mother is the only person who still cares about everything that is happening in my life, even if it is as simple as going shopping. I can remember being 15-years-old, and having my Mom sit at the edge of my bed as we both listened to each other’s stories. It is a tradition that I have still kept alive with Daniel as I put him to bed (and also because that seems to be the time when he is the most talkative).
I also wanted to take the time out to thank everyone who took part in my Beautiful Like Mom contest on Facebook. Your stories were extremely touching and I will forever keep them in my heart. Picking the top three entries was extremely difficult, so I wanted to make sure I let you all know that each and every one of you is a winner!
Sending much love to all of the moms out there.
Many of you braved the heat and humidity this past Saturday to stop by the NYC Studio for Mini-Makeovers, champagne and snacks - and what a blast we all had! I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed spending time with all of you, hearing your stores and getting to know you. We had some Makeover event veterans, first-timers and even very dedicated husbands and fathers who wanted to see what all of the buzz was about! Check out the video below for some fun footage from the day. I am so looking forward to the next event!

This past weekend was QVC’s annual Beauty Bash – what a blast! For those of you who aren’t familiar with it, Beauty Bash is an annual beauty event that brings together some of QVC’s most popular on-air personalities to meet, greet and share products, tips (and makeovers) with fans. I look forward to Beauty Bash every year, as I love to hang with the Beauty Bash veterans and meet the first-timers! I had such a wonderful time this past weekend and hope you all did as well.
I will soon be updating my Facebook fan page with some of the wonderful shots I took from the event. Click here to be taken to my facebook page!

I am often asked how to make sparse eyebrows look more natural. My solution would be my Brow Marker Long Lasting Brow Color. It is an innovative, soft, flexible-tipped brow marker that helps brows look lush and natural. This long-lasting formula goes on easily, dries quickly, lasts all day, and is easily removed with soap and water. Apply directly to clean, makeup and moisturizer-free skin in short strokes. Brow Marker can also be used to "color in" stray gray hairs in the brow.
When you are done using your Brow Marker, make sure to store it with the cap on, facing down, so the product flows evenly through the brush and on to the brows.
Spring is here. And while you’re lightening up your wardrobe, lighten up your Spring “look” as well. Here are my top 5 essentials that will help you achieve your fresh Spring face for 2010. Take a “look” below:
My Spackle Tinted Under Makeup Primer – use my Spackle alone all over your face for a radiant complexion, or wear under foundation to increase the longevity and durability of your makeup.
My Ethereal Balance Baked Radiance Powder and Color Correcting Foundation - using a brush, make sure to swirl both sides together or use them separately for a luminous glow.
My Mini Shine & Shield SPF 15 Lip Gloss Trio – try layering different shades of glosses to create a great color combination.
My Sugared Baked Pearl Eye shadow – using an eye shadow brush, sweep over your Sugared Baked Pearl Eye shadow and stroke it over your entire eyelid. It also makes for a great highlighter for under the brown bone!
My I-Care Eyeliner Waterproof Pencil Trio – to keep the liner moist and creamy, remember to close the cap tightly after each use.
Please always remember to wear sunscreen!
As a Spring treat, receive a FREE Eye Stay in Lilac/Orchid until April 13th with your next purchase.
