I'm a mommy, who's also just a chick singer in a rock n roll band.... LOVE makeup, lotions, potions and anything related.... I'm especially fond of (aka: sucker for) certified organic ANYTHING and I (used to) knit... and read... A LOT.

|My Beauty Secret:||
I adore LaRochePosay, Purifying Cleanser, I also love Eucerin Sensitive Skin Redness Reducing Cleanser (in the winter). I am addicted to Burts Bees Serum (both of the new ones... i love love love em) and for night Autopalm ME cream. Another secret to looking & feeling great... lie about your age!! (yes i did, and no i'm not) I think the the Burts Bees Serums have truly brought my dry skin back from the sahara. I use the Serum w/out a moisturizer during the warmer months (just follow w/a sunscreen tho)
In the morning, getting ready to drop of the lil roxtar there's really not much I need to do and I'm a bare bones kinda gal... (unless the band is playing or we're going out) It's moisturizer, curled lashes, mascara (physicians formula organic wear JUMBO lash) and cover up (gerda spellman creme foundation in truffle...LOVE this stuff) if I need it (and we're not running late) and some gloss. This is the REQUIRED MINIMUM before I leave the house. Anything more is optional (and lets be honest.. rarely happens).
|My Horror Story:||
My over zealousness w/a tweezer in the 90's... I look startled and surprised in every photo from then... and my sparse eyebrows now need to be filled in (i usually use eyeshadow for this but have been known to dye them every so often). And bad dye jobs... ash brown becomes RED ROOT RUSTED in the wrong hands.
|My Celebrity Look-a-like:||
I often get Angelina Jolie (love when that happens) and now... Miley Cyrus (which I havta admit... isn't as glamorous but it makes me popular w/the neighborhood kids they call me the miley cyrus lady which cracks me up)
No Joke... this stuff has made my skin look (and feel) FANTASTIC. From a chronically dry skin'd girl... who's been on a moisturizer quest forEVER... these serums, w/a hyarulonic acid followed by a rich cream (autopalm mle or weleda rose night cream)... has been the COMBO i was searching for. it's the combo i think that's key... you're never going to get hydrated skin, w/just ONE thing.
Enough said! I'd also like to give a shout out to Weleda Lip Balm.... it's AMAZING... and it's $5 at drugstore.com, you're not beating it and it's seriously the only thing that healed my lips last winter when I was in the midst of breastfeeding (aka: having all the moisture sucked outta me lovingly) haha. It's got rose wax, so there's a waxy consistancy that lingers on your lip, w/out being sticky and w/out being tacky... its organic (sigh i love organic finds that are winners like this) and when i say it lingers... it soothes for quite a long time before you feel the need to reapply. there arent any tingly incredients (which i dont mind if my lips aren't irritated and i want to pretend i'm actually plumping them)
