Oh, Sunday, Sunday, Sunday... how did you get here so fast? I simply cannot believe that this week is OVER. I also cannot believe that we just 63 days away from Christmas. I know that not everyone reading celebrates Christmas, but it simply means that the holiday season is upon us. And soon.

I have been writing holiday gift guides already. I am in full-on holiday mode and have been pulling out some holiday decorations. I want to decorate the house already. But with temperatures (in Massachusetts) in the upper 70's most of the time, it doesn't even seem like it is fall, let alone just two months away from Christmas. 

 Holiday Makeup Preview 2017

Enough holiday talk; there has been a lot of other great things going on that deserves a lot of our attention. Most notably, aging in the beauty industry. 

Caroline Hirons wrote this eye-opening post about the beauty industry. It is one that my friends and I talk about often. Thank YOU, Caroline, for speaking up and bring it to light so eloquently. If you read anything this week, let it be this.  

Great advice if you've considered Botox but haven't made the plunge yet.

I swear on everything that I know; this eye cream has done more for my crow's feet and undereye wrinkles than ANYTHING else that I have tried. I've used it for years.

There are some must-have new skincare products on this list!

You can always depend on Clarins to help with any of your skincare woes. 

The right cleanser can get your skincare routine off to the right start.

I'm Teri, your resident beauty expert. While I'm not playing with beauty products, painting my nails or shopping for makeup with my daughter who loves trying products with me, you will probably find me sneaking off to Florida with my husband of over 25 years or cheering on one of my three sons. I like baking, re-decorating, drinking tea, fussing with my flowers and facials.
