So umm, yea! This happened today. While I was answering emails and desperately trying to finish my work, I took a little break and bought back my tee shirts.
Mother Nature and I have a weird relationship. I’m a girl who LOVES seasons. Like, my spirit depends on it. I get all rude and cranky when I am either too cold or too hot or I’ve been too cold or too hot for too long! I’m an East Coaster true and through. I love the spring breeze that brings the cherry blossoms just as much as I love the hot summer nights us New Yorkers spend rooftopin’ our summers away with.
But as I get older the air that Mother Nature provides is killing me softly. We can all blame technology for our lack of clean air. But because the Internet and public transportation are now must-haves we shall overcome. Honestly, New York might be the dirtiest place on Earth (I still stan for her though)! With winter happening like tomorrow, the weather will get colder and the air will get drier. The combination of that air, your thermostat turned to “on fleek” and your windows locked and sealed to hide from the hawk outside, it could be affecting your beauty routine. You might want to consider purchasing a humidifier (I’ve got mine).
The Internet knows me as DocFabulous (more on that later) and I could possibly be considered a travel junkie. I literally hear the ocean breeze and palms trees calling my name in my sleep! I’ve diagnosed myself as a perpetual summer chaser, and my path to getting my next fix always leads to the JFK airport here in New York. Last month I treated myself (I do this often) to a quick girl trip with my spirit twin, Leslie and we flew to the beautiful island of Grenada, affectionately known as the Spice Island!

Last week I gracefully arrived at the last year of my thirties. No breakdowns, I promise! But I did realize that it’s even more important for me to tell you that it gets better. That while I don’t have it all figured it out, I now believe that not having it all figured out is the joy and possibly the secret to what Oprah has coined as “how to live your best life”.
Hey beauties, Nicole here!
Colder, dryer temps have set in which means we need to take extra good care of our skin to avoid being ashy *gasp*! A great skin care regimen is necessary all year round, but especially in these cold months that we have ahead of us.
Moisture is great for not only our body, but especially our face. It’s the first thing people usually see so it’s important, right? We don’t wanna be flaky, we want to be FLAWLESS!
Keeping your skin hydrated is important in the long run as well. As the saying goes, “black don’t crack!” Here’s why: our skin typically produces oils that keep our skin in an elastic state as we age. But even though we might have the advantage, we cannot skip on moisturizing our face. It’s just like with our hair. If we don’t moisturize our hair it tends to break off and we don’t want that!
Because I love you…here are 5 facial moisturizers you need this winter to keep your skin “on fleek”.
