How to visit your kids at college: keep it short and sweet!

How to visit your kids at college

I visited my sons at college this weekend. They are kids numbers three and four who fortunately go to the same university. Kid number one is out college, and number two will graduate in May, so I think I’ve finally got the method down. It’s my opinion that keeping the visit short and sweet is the way to go!

How to Look Younger: Lips

How to look younger with a rosy lip color

I am always on the hunt for the perfect nude lip color. Using satiny rosy nudes on your lips gives you a youthful glow while severe matte lip colors are aging.  My most recent purchase and current fav is Clinique Chubby Stick (could they not call it “chubby?”) in Bountiful Blush. I like a swipe of natural color on my lips when I’m going to the gym or running an early morning errand so that I don’t look dead.   This one has a smooth texture and rosy hue without any offensive taste and it’s light enough to look natural if you’re not wearing full makeup. Try it with a lip liner and a smoky eye for evening.

What are your favorite nude shades for lips?
