At this hectic time of year, you may find yourself needing to go from office to dressy party without having enough time to change. By adding just a few essentials to your repertoire, you can make the transition quickly and without much fuss. The key is polishing your look: think in terms of refreshing your face, adding standout jewelry pieces, and switching to a dressier shoe and handbag.
I started my work day with a velvet-textured WhoWhatWear for Target dress and a pair of booties. Later in the day, I went from work to play when I …
- converted to a dressier shoe
- added statement tassel earrings
- switched out my necklace for a choker
- replaced my handbag with a metallic-inspired clutch
- prepped my skin with a hydrating treatment mist
- refreshed my eyeshadow, lipstick, and manicure
That’s it! These additions not only upgraded my daytime look but did even more for my attitude. In an instant, I felt glamorous. Be your best self! Happy Glamour-days!

My super power: red lipsticck
On a typical day, I wake up my face every few hours by applying fresh lipstick. It is my own personal super-power. When I am feeling a bit tired, a moment of insecurity or stress – or both – I grab my lipstick and reclaim myself. It is that simple. Lipstick is the easiest way to find the super power within each of us. And there is a reason that red has always been the iconic symbol of beauty and power. It is perfect. You just need to find the red that works for you, and that has to do with your skin’s undertones – the second layer of skin underneath the top skin. You are either a cool (pink), neutral, or warm (yellow) undertone. I look best in a red with blue undertones.
I use Josie Maran Argan Balm to first moisturize my lips and then add my favorite lipstick, Cover Girl Tempt 455.
Who knew superpowers come in the form of lipstick?

My secret weapon against dry skin: Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil
It’s funny how by the time October rolls in my skin starts to feel dry. It’s almost like everything in my system is on a time clock. One of my secrets to combatting dry skin is Argan Oil. In fact, it has become my trusted skincare ritual. I discovered Josie Maran’s 100% Pure Argan Oil over a year ago on QVC. I use it on my face (after applying a facial serum), my body, and my hands. I even add drops to my cuticles. And my skin feels softer, more supple, and well-hydrated – immediately.
Native Californian Josie Maran is a model-turned-entrepreneur who started her own signature brand, Josie Maran Cosmetics, to “make cosmetics that are top-quality and healthy for people and for the planet.” The key ingredient in everything in the line is 100% Pure Argan Oil. About 10 years ago, on a modeling trip in the South of France, Josie met a French woman with beautiful, healthy, glowing skin – who turned out to be 70 years old! She asked the woman her secret and she told her, “Argan Oil.” Josie then researched Argan Oil and created her line of cosmetics,
They call it liquid gold and I believe it: Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil. I’m buying it!
Ever since I discovered Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil on QVC I have been a fan. Josie Maran believes in luxury with a conscience and has created a cosmetic line with the best ingredients, including 100% pure argan oil. I have heard Josie describe argan oil as liquid gold; when I rub it on my face and my skin I feel like I found a treasure.
Now I have discovered a new favorite: Josie Maran Argan Infused Creamy Chubby Concealer. Continue reading
