Last week, I had my first hygiene visit with Rochelle at The Washington Center for Dentistry. When you arrive at their practice, you immediately sense that this is no ordinary dental office. The office melds a luxurious, pristine, comfortable environment with the most […]

Sephora Classic Pointed Eyeliner Brush #17

I took in so much great makeup advice from makeup artist Alice Lane when I had my makeup done for my photo shoot with photographer Patric Shaw for a SK-II advertising campaign a few years ago. As with much in life, less is more. That said, what […]

I feel badly for women who are not in-the-know. There are so many products out there which claim to do make a difference, and they just don’t. For instance, all the new products sold at department store beauty counters, or even at the drug store claiming to give you longer, thicker, darker lashes. Don’t […]

Miss A’s Fave: Chanel’s LÈVRES SCINTILLANTES Lip Gloss


Some women have a weakness for shoes. Other women have a weakness for handbags. I have a weakness for lip gloss, and have tried every major brand of lip gloss out there. I have become a bit of a lip gloss connoisseur, so I wanted to share my all time personal favorite with my […]

Miss A’s Fave: Nailtiques


Acrylic nails like hair extensions and so many other beauty innovations were once just for the wealthy, models or celebrities. When I say very wealthy, I think we all know I mean the Nouveau Riche. There is no way Old Money is running around with fake nails and a weave. Anyhow, I digress. Acrylic […]

Women my age and younger frequently ask me what I’ve done to keep my skin looking so young. For those who don’t know, I’ll be 39 this August. I think the main thing that has helped my skin is that I have been wearing sunblock on daily basis since my mid-twenties. I wear […]

Miss A’s Fave: Giorgio Armani Sheer Blush #10

Giorgio Armani Sheer Blush

I had a great response to my first “Miss A’s Fave” which I shared with you a few weeks ago. I plan to continue this as a series of my favorite things. The items will range from inexpensive to expensive, but the common thread will be great value.

Today, I’d like to share with […]
