Something clever to make you scream.

But I can't seem to top my story from last year,
Check it out here.

Do you have any plans for Halloween?

The Beauty Loft in Beverly Hills

Head on over to The Beauty Loft in Beverly Hills and put your best face forward! If you live in Beverly Hills or nearby, or even if you are in town visiting, I highly recommend Sandra Dee at The Beauty Loft for your all your beauty needs. She is a true artist when it comes to makeup and waxing, and creating perfect eyebrows and eyelashes. She will also do your makeup for everyday, special events and weddings. With the Holidays coming up and lots of parties, you'll want to look your best! You won't want to hide behind a mask at Halloween! So please give Sandra a call and check out her website for more info here.

Sandra used to work at Umberto's Salon on Canon Drive in Beverly Hills for many years, but has moved on to a new location. She has set up her new place down the street at the Joseph Martin Salon in their light and airy loft upstairs.

Sandra does the makeup for quite a number of celebrities, including Natalie Cole, but always makes everybody feel like a star! I have been going to Sandra for years and can't say enough positive things about her work. I am a natural redhead, and actually have blond eyelashes and eyebrows which make me look rather faded away. She dyes or "tints" my eyelashes black using a very natural dye that is not harmful. It doesn't hurt to have it done. She shapes my eyebrows perfectly, and tints them ever so slightly too. I always feel I look better afterwards. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to see her in quite some time due to an eye injury but I can't wait to go back.

A glowing review from another fan:
"The Beauty Loft, upstairs at Peter Ishkhans at Joseph Martin Salon is LA’s version of New York loft beauty. In this bright airy space you can’t help but feel beautiful. The lighting is exceptional for make-up and trust me, Sandra Dee will not miss a hair on your face. The salon's vibe is fresh, easygoing and is all about making our clients feel exactly what they deserve, “the best.”

Call and make an appointment today!
You'll be delighted with the results!

Behind Our Mask

The time is near for Halloween,
will you join in the party scene?

Wear a mask and costume,
or ride around on a broom?

Take the children door to door,
gathering trick or treats galore?

Just be sure to put on your best face,
so you'll arrive with grace.

Going, Going... Almost Sold....

Just a quick post to tell you about an Ebay auction I just stumbled across. It's for a "Vintage Hollywood Regency Gold Faux Bamboo Flatware Set" that could make a chic and glamorous table setting. It reminds me of days gone by, out by the pool, with decor in the manner of Kelly Wearstler, Joe Nye, Mary McDonald, Woodson & Rummerfield, and so on.

I don't normally post things I discover that are up for auction but this looks so pretty. There are only about 11 hours until the auction ends and there are already a lot of bids. It's a set of 10 complete servings stainless steel and gold electroplated by Supreme. What do you think of it?

Colors of the Night

Don't you just wanna wear that and lye on that bed!
Charcoal grey and peachy mauve look pretty together
and the patterns and textures are amazing.

Time and Time Again

Happy 10-10-10
at 10:10:10 am & 10:10:10 pm

Only once in a hundred years,
will this time ever pass us by again.

Yet each moment comes only once in our lives,
then forever passes us by.

Thinking about where Ive been,
Wondering... should I go down that path again?

Whats around the other corner?
Better pause a moment to wonder...

and ponder...
before I just wander.

More of the same?
Humm... I think it's time to change.

Hello October

Fall has changed the leaves,

and there's a slight breeze.

All is a glow in amber golden light,

telling me every thing's gonna be alright.

Wishing everybody a beautiful weekend.

A little poem by me :)
