Dr. Kenneth Mark Skincare

Great skincare is the foundation of any effective beauty regimen. While I love experimenting and having fun with all manner of makeup, skincare is my jam and I don’t play any games. I’ve always been a fan of skincare lines created by doctors and though I have my favorites, I stay open to new discoveries. Earlier this year, I was introduced to the recently launched Dr. Kenneth Mark skincare line and I’ve been giving it a whirl for a few weeks to see how it performs.…

Keeping my skin soft and supple is high on my list of priorities all year long.

Body positivity. We hear the term a lot lately and I wonder, what comes up for you when you hear it. I automatically imagine plus-sized women marching through the clothing aisle, gleefully flinging skimpy outfits to the side as they sing an ’embrace your curves’ medley. OK, maybe that’s the musical theater version of it (which is odd because I don’t like musicals) but whatever the image in my head is, it’s definitely comprised of women who are all plus-sized.…

Hair removal, or deforestation as I like to call it, is a constant struggle. I hate to say it but sometimes I have to devote half a day to my deforestation and the results don’t last nearly as long as I’d like. Of course, during the cooler months, staying smooth isn’t as a big a priority as it is during the summer but there are still times when only buttery smooth skin will do. Luckily, the folks at Shaveworks sent me a few of their luxurious shaving products to try and there is a must-have in the mix!…
