{Your New Best Friend-Eye Cream}

Eye Cream


It is never too early to take care of the skin around your eyes. Those pesky little fine lines will creep up on you when you aren’t looking….TRUST ME ON THIS. I have earned every one of these lines with many years of laughter and big toothy grins but that does not mean I want to be besties with them. And I will kick them to curb as hard as I can with the help of these eye creams that we’ve gathered for you. Now, lest you think these are going to banish them forever let’s be clear here, this is not Botox but they will hydrate and nourish the skin and diminish the appearance while also making you feel pampered like a baby.

The Framed&Focused Top Pick for this group is the Olé Henriksen Ultimate Eye Lift with it’s roller ball application. The best is keeping this in the fridge so you get a double dose of cold and creamy. Great for tightening tired skin.

Tell us which eye cream is your favorite!


{Your New Best Friend-Eyelash Curler}



My sister made the statement a few weeks ago that she hates to wear sunglasses because her lashes are so long, they hit the lens. ( I wish I could insert a bug eyed emoticon right here) I know, tough problem to have right? But she’s right. I bet there are a lot of ladies out there who don’t put on mascara when they wear their glasses because of the exact same problem. Well, meet “You New Best Friend”-The Eyelash Curler.

I’m sure most of you are familiar with this medieval looking beauty tool but let me tell you how important it is to have in your arsenal. A little upward curl of the lash goes a long way. First it’s going to open up your eyes and make them look bigger. Second, it’s going to lift them up instead of out, so no more lash against the lens problem. This also means for those ladies with shorter lashes, you can use lengthening mascara to get those long lashes my sister brags about.

As you can see they come in an array of colors and shapes and sizes. There are even some that heat up for a better curl. Let us know if you’ve tried that! Our favorite so far is the compact travel curler. It tucks into our makeup bag and is easy to wrangle. Perfect for those bleary eyed mornings when we are trying to get to work.

{Fashion Friday-Old Man Winter}

Old Man Winter

We are by no means alluding to you being an Old Man, it’s just a phrase, really. And it IS Winter. Have you been outside lately! WOW! SO you need to layer up and break out the puffer coat and the gloves and the beanies. Don’t forget to cover those peepers with these Dita Condor Frames so you don’t have tears streaming down your face from the cold.

People will stare, trust us.

{Fashion Friday-Baby It’s Cold Outside}

Baby It's Cold Outside

Yes, yes it is! Winter has arrived and with it a dusting of snow all across the Northeast.
It’s such a catch 22. The City looks amazing with it’s new blanket of white but it’s so cold out, all you want to do is hunker down under a blanket and not leave the house!

Come on brave souls! It’s a New Year! Get out there and have a little fun! Just layer up, throw on a stylish fedora and top your look with these great Karen Walker Harvest Gold Sunnies to protect your peepers from the arctic wind that causes immediate watery eyes and you are good to go! Get out there and throw a snowball at someone, just for FUN!
