THE COVET LIST (04/17)

As much as I love the thought of 'spring cleaning', the actual chore is a definite bore unless of course it entails digging into my make-up drawer at the beginning of every season, tossing what needs to be tossed and picking up what's being buzzed about! A visit to Sephora is always on the agenda, I love to check out the 'Just Arrived' section and see what is new in the beauty world.
Nail polish in a pastel spring shade, a airy new scent and a blush glaze that will produce a rosy cheek reminiscent of a teenager are just a few of my new best friends this spring!
If your budget allows you to indulge in only one thing this season, hear me now and let it be this life saver for winter-beaten hair.
Gave me the hair of a goddess for five days straight (not an easy task, trust me!)

'INSTA'-WEEK: A Life in Pictures (02/08)

It's been one heck of a frosty week but I've kept busy, playing in the snow, blowing out my birthday candles and sneaking in a 'snow day' to settle in with a fabulous new book!
And if that wasn't enough to keep my calendar buzzing, I kicked off my newest Twitter campaign, #kickstartkindness, devoted to reminding all of us that any act of kindness, big or small will make all the difference in the world!

HOW TO BEHAVE HERE, THERE AND EVERYWHERE: Help Others In Need


To the group of high school girls walking through the parking lot.

I can tell by the way your jackets were left unzipped that you probably don't find it so cold out but it is, very cold in fact for the little old lady struggling ahead of you to push her cart through the slush of the parking lot.

I know that you could see her struggle too since I could hear the bunch of you making jokes at the lady's expense, only stopping when granny almost slipped as she was trying to control her overloaded cart. One of you even glanced backwards as you passed her, a sliver of concern on your face as you watched the lady, trying her best to place the heavy groceries into her trunk as quickly as, what I imagined must have been at least 80 year old hands could go in the biting cold. You probably had enough time to glance a second or even third time since the old woman, arms bent and trembling, lifted the heavy grocery bags into her trunk, continuing to hold onto her scarf and hat as the wind had picked up speed at this time. But no one glanced back and definitely did not think twice of the lady.
I get it girls, we all get it. One of the rites of passage into 'teenage-hood' is the ability to be completely oblivious to life around them but had any one of you stopped for a moment and thought about showing a little courtesy to this old woman (or any person in need really) you would have been greeted with a world of appreciation. I know this because I was shown this genuine appreciation when I helped her. Sure I had my own groceries to put away and control my children in the parking lot but I threw the groceries (and kiddies!) in the car, locked the doors and offered a hand to the woman whose smile of thanks lit up my grey day.
Remember, youth is fleeting but kindness is forever.
