I’m a food-obsessed woman in her late thirties who is also nuts about cosmetics and skincare.  I’ve found that a lot of skincare and makeup advice is geared toward the ingenue set, and while there’s nothing wrong with that, at 39, I am well past the fresh-faced ingenue stage in my life.  I’m glad you’re reading and I hope you get something out of it.

To help you understand why I use the products and services I use:


  • Black
  • shiny
  • straight with a hint of wave
  • fine and medium-textured with coarse grays sprinkled in
  • oily scalp
  • rarely heat-styled


  • Dark brown
  • monolidded (no crease in eyelids)
  • brows are sparse and grow all over the place


  • So oily it puts the Exxon Valdez to shame
  • acne-prone
  • yellow undertones
  • medium-light skin color


  • dry as the Sahara
  • Keratosis pilaris (chicken skin)
