    Skintastic

    It used to be easier, I suppose, way back when we only needed our Dove soap, Nivea Cream and Jolene Bleach. If you were fancy, you indulged in a home-made remedy such as a masque or mud-pack. I remember using egg whites for my masque and sometimes oatmeal. (It almost became lunch!)  Oh, and the famous Queen Helen Mint Julep Mask- a dark leafy green, muddy goop that you slathered over your entire face, whites of your eyes and teeth flashing, and head wrapped in an Egyptian cotton terry turban.

    Spring Cleaning – the other kind.

    One and Done

    Concierge & Personal Assistant Services The Ultimate Errand Fairy for the Holiday Season and Beyond I like juggling but would prefer it stays at the circus.  We all remember those vivid 2 a.m. moments of anxiety, especially during the holiday season. I always think, “Where is that elf to just whittle away these errands? Could the tooth fairy pitch in for a day or so?  How are we possibly going to do X-Y-Z?”  Now, these are not the chores of those youthful, college years of worry. I’m talking about the adult version of full-on stress, family obligations, life happens, joyous occasions, traumatic happenings that no one can predict or plan…
