To get your lipstick to stay on, try this product.
How to use:

1. Apply lipstick as usual and blot lightly with a tissue.

2. Apply Colorfix over your entire mouth. Avoid overlapping strokes. Wipe brush on tissue before reinserting in the bottle.

3. Do not touch lips together for 10-15 seconds while Colorfix dries or you will break the seal.

4. Lick both lips to "set" Colorfix.

Caution: You may feel a tingling sensation when first applied. Do not apply to chapped lips.



Pack Summer Away.  Make sure the items you store are laundered or dry cleaned. Even if clothing appears clean, invisible stains --especially in light colored linen and cotton -- can turn into permanent spots by the time you take them out to wear for vacation or next summer. Moths are drawn by deodorant, perfume and body odor. Invisible stains from clear soda or white wine will turn yellow over time and can become impossible to remove. And be sure to remove all dry-cleaning bags from your closet to air out fumes and prevent fabrics from becoming discolored. 

When possible, store off-season clothing in canvas bags which allow the fibers to breathe. Or drape a clean cotton sheet over hanging clothes, making sure the shoulders and sleeves are covered. You can also put shoulder covers over your hanging clothing to protect the shoulders year -round; I do.

Sweaters can be zipped into sweater bags. If using plastic boxes, line them with a clean, unbleached sheet folded over the garments to help absorb any potential moisture. However, always put fur and leather garments in canvas bags. 

No matter how you store your clothing, it should be in a cool, dry area.


If the job of sorting through your closet seems overwhelming, let me know. I am told I am a gifted "closet surgeon." The goal of "closet surgery" is that your every day options should be in your most becoming colors, should fit and should be somewhat in style. I will pull together outfits you never dreamed of wearing together by shopping right in your own closet using your own clothing and accessories. Pictures of the newly constituted and accessorized outfits are taken. And I will leave you with a list of items you might consider purchasing to update your wardrobe. Either you can buy them or hire me to do it. The process is fun as well as extremely useful. Before you run out for something new, you will know what you really need. Makes sense; doesn't it? So let me know if I can help you.

Update your wardrobe each season with something new. But remember to wear only what flatters you, not just because it is "in." 


When in the process of losing weight, do not buy something you will "shrink" into; invest in a couple of things that fit now. And anything with lycra or spandex should hold its shape if you lose (or gain) a few pounds. And once you have lost the weight, do not invest in a whole new wardrobe until you have kept it off for at least six months.


Please remember to let me know if you have a new e-mail or home address.
