Beauty Talk with Olympic Figure Skater Gracie Gold


It’s not every day you wake up with an opportunity to interview an Olympic figure skater. Gracie Gold is Sochi bound, but not without her must-have COVERGIRL products. I chatted with the figure skater about when she realized she wanted to compete, her long days on the ice and of course, her beauty routine. She deserves a gold medal for following such a great skin care and beauty regimen! Head on over to Glitter Guide to read the entire Q&A.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Politics of Pretty Mother's Day

This post is dedicated to my favorite beauty muse: my mom (that’s her above, circa 1970… something). My best beauty memories with her include frequenting Lord & Taylor during my “tween” years getting makeovers at the Estee Lauder and Clinique counters with her; watching her do her makeup in the morning before she dropped me off at school, and of course, schmoozing my way to get her to buy me every Bonne Bell Lip Smackers flavored balm possible.

While her products may have changed, her beauty style hasn’t (except for maybe the way she used to iron her hair… with an actual iron in case you were wondering). There are still days where I find myself sifting through her red makeup bag when she’s not home, looking for the latest Chanel lipstick or eye cream in hopes I’ll discover a new product (or two) to borrow. Love you mom!

Wishing you and yours a Happy Mother’s Day!
