Dear Florida,

I’m having such a hard time trying to find the perfect lip shade for my coloring. I have a light medium skin tone with light warm undertones. I’ve been searching online but I need the name of a shade(s). Please help!


Shopping for new lip shades is one of my favorite activities, so you’ve come to the right source!

April, you cannot go wrong with the Lancôme Lip Lover line. It’s an amazing lipstick line and together, we’ll find you the perfect match. It was named Allure’s Best of for its award-winning balm hydration and the new 3 in 1 elixir formula. No sacrificing moisture for color or shine! This great lipstick comes in 18 show-stopping colors. Someone with your skin tone can wear many of the shades. However, if you have warm undertones your best colors tend to be earth tones, corals, mauves, light rose and wine shades. Here are my four favorite lipstick shades for you to wear to the office, running errands or for a night out on the town.

Say Goodbye to Dry: 6 Winter Skincare Products

Stay one step ahead of the winter wind and frost with the best beauty tips for glowing winter skin.

Beat the winter blues and get luminous skin at the same time with these 6 winter skin beauty products!

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6


Personally, I love the of changing seasons, but every season has its own set of skincare challenges. Whether you live in or travel to wintry climates, cold weather can wreak havoc on your skin. My secret to glowing winter skin is transforming your skin care regimen to keep your skin healthy and hydrated.

As November winds blow us toward dropping temperatures and snowflakes, the best skin care products should be on the top of your protective gear list. Skiing, ice skating, snowboarding, playing in the snow with your kids, running or just taking a brisk walk in the cold can cause your skin to flake and tighten right before your eyes. Nobody wants wrinkled skin, chapped cheeks and lips, so it’s time to kick off the winter season with a new skincare regimen and extra moisturizing.

Always Cleanse

If you are skipping out on a daily cleansing regimen, now is the time to start. Try Clinique’s 3-Step regimen to cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize your skin. Clinique’s line of skin care products are customized for different skin types. Customizing your regimen means finding the best products whether you have sensitive, dry or oily skin.

Manic Monday: “Thank” by John F. Kennedy

“We must find the time to stop and thank the people who make a difference in our lives.” – John F. Kennedy

In a few short days, we’ll be gathering around the table with our loved ones. Will we be tired after all the cooking? Yes. Will we be ravenous after smelling all the delicious treats all day long? Of course! And will we be thankful? We sure should be.

John F. Kennedy once said that we should take time out to thank the people that make a difference in our lives. What better time to not only be thankful for all your blessings but to personally thank all your loved ones for all they do and all they are? It’s only Manic Monday now, but I plan on spending the week telling my friends and family how grateful I am for them: my mom for her limitless patience, my dad for his know-how, my sisters for long chats and my best friend for bellyaching laughs. Cheers and a very happy (almost) Thanksgiving.
