In recent years, I used and refined these skills while working as a volunteer fashion consultant at Bloom in San Rafael that gives personally curated two week wardrobes of quality donated clothes to those in need.It was my great delight to show our clients how to accentuate their best features with color and cut and how to mix and match separates for a complete coordinated wardrobe capsule to fit their lifestyle, whether corporate or casual. I think my own wardrobe benefited in turn from working with clients on their wardrobe needs.
Also I am a good packer.I can pack carry on only for three weeks in Europe with no problem.DO YOU HAVE A STYLE MUSE?
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE BEAUTY PRODUCTS AND WHY CAN YOU NOT LIVE WITHOUT THEM?
You are too polite to ask but first let me say that I am not a big fan of Botox, fillers, etc. I have experimented with them a little but at this stage of the game, they are not worth the physical and pocketbook pain as the gain, if any, is minimal and transitory. But to each, their own in such matters.
For skincare, in the evening I wash with a gentle cream cleanser, Pacifica Seafoam, right now, and twice a week use exfoliation of some kind followed by night cream.Currently I am using Drunk Elephant F Balm or Lala Retro Whipped Cream at night with an extra addition of their A- Passioni retinol cream a few times a week.I also use GrandeLASH MD to keep some eyelashes onboard. Mornings, a quick splash of water is followed by a serum ( I am loving Mermaid skin by Tarte for the name(!) light scent and silky feel and then sunscreen.My favorite new find in that department is a light tinted gel from Bare Minerals called “Complexion Rescue”, SPF 30.Also I like the powder sunscreen wands for easy top offs during the day. I am currently using Mineral Fusion’s.I spend a lot of time outside and have sun damage from my early unprotected years so I try to minimize new damage or anything more serious.
I find it important to mix up the exercise menu so as not to over stress any particular muscle group.
