Beauty Post: Make up free and unretouched skin w/ Eve Lom...

My Skin Make Up Free and Un-retouched
Going make up free for any woman over the age of 28 can be a challenge.  That just seems to be the year when all sorts of issues start to surface.  Hyper-pigmentation, the beginnings of tiny fine lines, dark circles under our eyes, the dreaded laugh lines, and the surfacing of all that sun damage we did through out our teens and early twenties.  I know I was one of those gals continuously baking in the sun in the hopes of achieving that golden glow and I for one suffer from all these problems and more.

A lot of you may think I have completely gone off my rocker for posting a raw make up free un-retouched close up of myself  but Like most women I am not perfect and like most women I am on the constant quest to correct or to at least slow down the skin issues I have. I purposely took this photo in natural flat light so you can see everything that is going on.

Clogged, dull, uneven skin is out......and .....Fresh bright even clear skin is in..

I was in bed one an early Sunday morning fully thinking I was going to sleep in when an urge came over me.  I hopped up.. got dressed and headed over to my local Target to see the Peter Pilotto for target collection in person.  I am definitely the type of girl who needs to touch with my hands.. thus I mostly prefer in person shopping when possible.  Call me old fashion..

Anyhow.. it was 8 am .. and I have to say that the mad house that I thought I would encounter was pretty tame..  Mostly ladies in

By now we all know that brunch is something I absolutely adore.  In fact since I was a kid,  eating out was one of my favorite past times.. and my mom and I ate out a whole lot.  Probably where I got the itch from.

So when the folks over at one of my favorite Farmers Market  LA eateries invited me to try out their new brunch menu I could not say no..

I have to say that Chic is one of my favorite terms.  Chic is one of those words that embodies so many different qualities because chic is different for everyone.  For example I find as a rule that Parisian women are so very "Chic".    Modern, yet classic.  Understated yet vibrant.  Put together yet natural.  

Not to mention that the many iconic women of the world, present and past that are synonymous with the term chic all embody what I love about it.  Angelina Jolie, Jackie Kennedy, Eartha Kit, Lupita Nyongo and

Penny Chic does it again..  Walking in to the Penny Chic HQ last week I had no idea that I was walking in to a Penny Chic HQ closet filled with incredible finds curated by Shauna herself.  I was like a kid in a candy store.. or in my case a 5 year old at Toys R Us surrounded by barbies.

 A couple days ago a friend sent me this little triptych noting how on trend I was with the striped faux fur I wore for the Beverly Center Style challenge that I was a part of back in October 2013.  I didn't win any of the three spots that uber super bloggers Chriselle Lim,  Shea Marie and  Liz Cherkasova judged but the challenge was a blast!..

Anyhow this little pic from my dear friend got me thinking

I was once asked in a meeting with VP of development at CBS Television if I felt pressure to always leave the house "decked out".... and I have to say honestly that was the first time I had actually ever thought about that.  I mean of course no one wants to leave the house looking crazy.. but who on earth wants to feel like they have to spend hours getting ready just to leave the house.. NOT ME!

This is where today's look comes in.. Super casual..

BEAUTY POST.. My day at the Benjamin w/ Negin Zand Salon

 I have been dying to write this post and the day is finally here.  Whoo hoo!!!   I get so many questions about my hair.   Questions about my color, my texture, my cuts and most of all how on earth can I constantly keep changing it.  Ive said it before and I will say it again.   When it comes to my hair I have an itchy trigger finger.   Here's my philosophy.. Our hair is the only thing on our body that we can die, fry, cut, burn and mutilate (for lack of a better word) and in just a little bit of time it grows right back.  So why not have fun with it!

And fun is exactly what was had the minute I walked through the doors of  Benjamin w/ Negin Zand Salon in West Hollywood.  Not only is
