I See You

Have you ever been to a Warby Parker store?  Well there’s one near my house and I ventured over to check it out.  They really have a great selection of glasses.  Serious, fun and a little wild!  The prices are really good as well.

Warby Parker just did a collaboration with Justin Timberlake.  Coming off of his awesome Super Bowl show and his upcoming tour (he’s coming to Lexington!) Timberlake is a hot commodity.  And the good news is that none of the glasses have that cammo look that he wore during the Super Bowl! Ha!

The collection is really nice,  and you can even take home several pairs and try them in private at your convenience.  Don’t you just hate standing in the store and trying on glasses? I always feel so silly.

Warby Parker will make a donation to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for every sale made. Shopping with a purpose makes purchasing even better!

Everybody knows that collagen is key for anti-aging.  Dr. Oz discussed this on his show recently. But how do you get it?  Collagen is created naturally but there are ways to increase production.  I have been using this product and it’s awesome.

I can tell a big difference in the moisture in my skin and the elasticity.  Both are desirable in order to make your skin look as good as it can.  Just mix it up in your morning water, juice or coffee.  There’s no taste and it’s a simple way to look better naturally.

According to Wikipedia collagen is defined as:

AcCollagen /ˈkɒlədʒɪn/ is the main structural protein in the extracellular space in the various connective tissues in animal bodies. As the main component of connective tissue, it is the most abundant protein in mammals,[1] making up from 25% to 35% of the whole-body protein content. Collagen consists of amino acids wound together to form triple-helices to form of elongated fibrils.[2] It is mostly found in fibrous tissues such as tendons, ligaments and skin.
Depending upon the degree of mineralization, collagen tissues may be rigid (bone), compliant (tendon), or have a gradient from rigid to compliant (cartilage). It is also abundant in corneas, cartilage, bones, blood vessels, the gut, intervertebral discs, and the dentin in teeth.[3] In muscle tissue, it serves as a major component of the endomysium. Collagen constitutes one to two percent of muscle tissue, and accounts for 6% of the weight of strong, tendinous muscles.[4] The fibroblast is the most common cell that creates collagen. Gelatin, which is used in food and industry, is collagen that has been irreversibly hydrolyzed.[5] Collagen also has many medical uses in treating complications of the bones and skin.
The name collagen comes from the Greek κόλλα (kólla), meaning “glue”, and suffix -γέν, -gen, denoting “producing”.[6][7] This refers to the compound’s early use in the process of boiling the skin and tendons of horses and other animals to obtain glue.cording to

Spring in your Step

I’m loving all the new block heels that are currently in style.  They are far more comfortable and easier to walk in than those with thinner heels.  You can even go a little higher than normal.  I bought a pair of silver Gucci mules last summer and wore them a lot.  They were super sassy and really fun.

When I was shopping online recently I found these fun shoes.  Feathers- check, pink- check, block heels- check.  What’s not to like?  These Charlotte Russe faux suede sandals were regularly $32.99 but they are currently on sale for $15.99! Spring is right around the corner. xoxox

New Furrier in Town

New Furrier in Town

I received an invitation to a grand opening for a new business in town.  Yudofsky Fur and Leather has recently opened in the Summit Shops in Lexington

You may know that I grew up in Frankfort.  Some of my fondest memories were family shopping trips to Louisville.  You see poor Frankfort didn’t have any shopping.  Mom and Dad loved to shop so we would travel to Louisville on the weekend.  Our destination was Oxmoor Mall, about an hour away from our house.  Yudofsky Furriers began in 1925 in Louisville.  My mother purchased her coats from there and that’s also where mine came from.  So needless to say, I’ve got a little history with the store.  I’ll never forget seeing Mr. and Mrs. Yudofsky being in the store and paying attention to every detail.  They were truly experts.

When I walked in I couldn’t believe how fabulous it was.  Light walls, light floors and gleaming stainless steel racks hanging from the ceiling made this store look very modern and fresh.  A friendly gentleman greeted everyone at the door with a coat check. Stylish patrons were admiring both the coats and clothing.  You see, Yudofsky not only has fur and leather coats, but also ready to wear.  Models were walking throughout the store wearing lovely dresses and coats.  Prosecco with berries and white wine was served along delicious appetizers.  Ladies and gentlemen, these folks know how to host a lovely party!

Wouldn’t the dresses below be fantastic for Keeneland and Derby?

Along with beautiful dresses are a selection of coats that will suit everyone.  Fur, leather and coats of luxurious material can be found in the store.  If you don’t wear fur, don’t worry, they have something for you.  Yudofsky also offers restyling and repair of coats on site as well as a fur vault for storing coats in summer months.

Yudofsky Fur and Leather is a great new addition to Lexington.  I know you will love it! xoxo

Elf Shoes for You?

Elf Shoes for You?

Recently I was reading Vogue magazine and they were reviewing trends that they saw on recent fashion runways.  These Moroccan pointy-toe shoes were seen in both men’s and women’s styles at the recent 2018 Lowe Fashion Show.  I can’t wait to see these walking down Main Street USA this year!  xoxo

Couture Liquor

Couture Liquor

I’m sure that you’ve seen and probably tasted all the flavored liquors that are on the market.  Cinnamon, honey and vanilla are just some of the flavors you can find.  UncommonGoods is a great catalog that I received.  You may remember the Himalyian salt tequila glasses that I posted several weeks ago.  Very unique items and this is no exception!

Check out this kit to make your own flavored liquor.  Forget about home brew beer, this is much better! xoxo

Winter time brings all sorts of skin issues.  Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!  However, sometimes your feet get all crackly and rough and it’s really hard to get rid of, not to mention it looks awful.  I’ve been using this foot peel for several years and it’s really good! You can find Baby Feet at many spas and medical spas as well as online at places like Amazon.  Looks like Overstock. com is having a sale!  Here’s to smooth sailing for you xoxo.
