Just in time for Valentine’s Day, facialist-extraordinnaire Gia, from Gia Skin Care, shares her Red Velvet Mask. It looks and smells so good, you may find yourself nibbling on it while applying it to your face.
How do you enjoy this do-it-yourself process at home?
All you’ll need is a food processor or blender and the following ingredients:
1/4 Cup of Fresh Organic Raspberries
1 Tablespoon Manuka or Raw Local Honey
1 Teaspoon of powdered Cocoa
1-2 Tablespoons Organic Almond Milk
Blend all the ingredients until it becomes a smooth velvety consistency.
Apply your mask from a bowl with either an applicator or facial brush making sure you avoid the eye area.
Leave on 10 minutes and simply Breathe and Relax.
With the amazing power of antioxidants from the raspberries and the medicinal antibacterial healing qualities from the honey, this is the ideal indulging mask without any calories!
It’s a nice way to pamper yourself, while getting ready for your next cyber-date.

It’s with great enthusiasm to announce that I’m teaming up with Bloomingdales for an exciting event called, Beauty 101: Meet Your Match. The event will be held in their Los Angeles – Century City store on Saturday, October 20th from 1pm – 2pm and 4pm – 5pm.
We all know that getting ready for a date requires a bit of effort. With so many beauty lines to choose from, how do you know which is best for you? Should you lean in for the important first kiss wearing pink lipstick or red?
If you’ve heard of speed dating, the concept is similar. How it works is 30 participants will be seated at individual tables for each session. Every five minutes, you’ll switch tables and meet experts from Bloomingdales’ prestigious cosmetics lines who will show you the best products for you. I’ll be on hand providing dating and relationship advice for each participant, so get your questions ready.
Your $25 ticket will be redeemable for purchases in the Cosmetics department. We’ll have light refreshments, free samples, and the chance to win one of the many luxurious Cosmetics baskets. You’ll leave looking perfect for your date night.
Tickets are limited and are available in advance at any cosmetics counter at the Century City store or by calling 310-772-2144.

Going out with the girls is something I always look forward to. The power of the “girlfriend network” is something that I cherish on a daily basis. Girlfriends help you get ready for a date, plan your wedding, hold your hand during a break up, and tell you the truth if your outfit looks good on your or not.
This week, grab your favorite girlfriends and head over to the annual Shecky’s Girls Night Out at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium in Santa Monica, CA. You’ll have 5 hours to sip on wonderful cocktails, see the latest in fashion and beauty trends, receive dating advice, and go home with the famous Shecky’s VIP Goody Bag, worth over $100.
Tickets can be purchased for $25 in advance and $35 at the door. As a Shecky’s Socialista, I will be coordinating a group of stylish Los Angeles ladies on Thursday, May 20, 2010.

Every one in a while I come across a new lip gloss that’s guaranteed to stay on your lips throughout the day. When I found the double-ended mix-and match lipgloss from tarte, which claimed to be a moisture-rich gloss duo to hydrate the lips, it was worth trying.
Of course, the quote on the box got my attention, which said “Breaking up’s not hard to do when you’ve got a gloss that splits in two!”
Tarte supergloss comes in colors such as Pip & Estella, along with the associated and flirty quote, “Estella always kept her admirer guessing with her patented pout. Exceed expectations, one kiss at a time.”
Other famous duos include Fred & Ginger, Romeo & Juliet, Luke & Laura, Rhett & Scarlet, and Anthony & Cleopatra.
It’s worth the purchase to perk up your spirit along with your lips. Added bonus: You can break apart the duo and mix and match the colors while you’re dreaming about your next kiss.

Nothing is sexier than long luscious lashes. These days there are so many products and mascara choices to make, however now all of my friends are appearing with extra long lashes, and they are their very own. Why? Because several products have been created lately which are FDA approved to actually help your lashes grow. All you need to do is put a thin liner on your eyelid once a day and within thirty days, your eye lashes will have lengthened. It’s the talk of the town, so go to your local beauty supply shop or your dermatologist’s office and request one of the many brands that are available. You’ll have more fun after being “winked” on your next cyber-date.
