Classy & Fabulous…


A woman should be two things: classy and fabulous.  Coco Chanel

I agree with Coco Chanel and could write volumes about being classy and fabulous from varying viewpoints to include self-confidence.

I like to feel put together regardless of whether I am at a country club or Walmart.  I don’t wear clothes that are ill-fitting, shoes that are scuffed or nail polish that is chipped. Yet, I am a busy person so I have routines and products that help me look my best.  Here are some of my favorite products.    

  1. Perfect Fig lipstick by Lancôme.  This has been my “go to”lipstick for years as it works with any outfit or colors.
  2. Baby oil mixed with bath gel…keeps my skin soft without having to apply oil or lotion afterwards.  I use a ratio of 1:4 oil to bath gel. This allows for viscosity and keeps the shower floor from getting too slippery! I am always careful with oil in the bathroom.
  3. G.M. Collin spray mist for when my face feels dry.  I spritz it over makeup during the day as needed.  I use Kiehl’s In-Flight Refreshing Facial Mist 2.5 oz for air travel.
  4. Shellac nail polish in Rubble.  It is a greyish, brown color with a lavender undertone. Sounds weird but it goes with everything.  I receive lots of compliments on this color. My shellac manicure lasts from 2-3 weeks.  Shellac looks natural and is easy to repair between appointments by having a bottle of regular color in the same or very close shade.
  5. No.27 Rue de Marli hand cream which smells divine and is so hydrating. I apply a light coat to my hands just before I go to bed.
  6. Cellophane  wrapped toothpicks because spinach in my teeth is neither classy nor fabulous!
  7. L’Occitane en Provence skincare is gentle and effective.
  8. Aquage silkening oil foam tames my curly hair leaving it shiny and soft.  I spritz water on my hair during the day to revive the curl if needed.
  9. I plan to try the Nars Base Makeup Two Base Updates written about in the Lipsticks and Biscuits blog .  Check this blog out for lots of fun, useful posts. I appreciate consumer reviews as they save me time and money.
  10. Finally, my best beauty tools are drinking lots of water, a good night’s sleep, a healthy diet, sunscreen and a big smile (seriously!).

If you have a favorite beauty product, please share below.  Thanks!

  1. Lots of good ideas but I think I’ll start with the toothpicks, LOL! Thank goodness I work from home but Allan should’t have to look at greens in my teeth and if I need it at home, I probably need it when we go out for dinner! 🙂


  2. Instant Light Complexion Illuminating Base from Clarins! 😀 (I know, it’s a mouthful lol) Best product I have ever used! It corrects your skin tone and you get that fresh, natural look. A little goes a long way. I swear by it! 🙂


      1. Thank you so much Lori! Your blog has some great content as well! I feel like I’m finally getting the hang of the blogging community. I enjoy visiting just as much as I do writing.
