Awesome Vintage Jewelry

Hello Again, Beautiful People!

I adored this beautiful vintage jewelry piece I modeled for world renowned, and North America’s premier Jewelry collector, Carole Tanenbaum.  Carole, recently held a show Downtown, Toronto, and the event was absolutely remarkable! The bright, eye-catching, canary yellow piece I am wearing is definitely an exquisite work of art, made for a woman who dares to be bold and beautiful.

Carole’s collection includes, Victorian period, designers, limited edition, and one-of-a-kind pieces. You can also enjoy jewelry by Chanel, Schiapparelli, Hobe, and Miriam Haskell, and a vast collection of Bakelite, resin, Scottish and Czech items.

Carole has been collecting vintage jewelry for over 25 years and has over 30,000 exquisite pieces.

If it’s vintage……It is fabulous!

I am a vintage woman, and I have an appreciation for the beauty, quality and exquisite craftsmanship of yesteryear.  I came across an elegant, vintage, Royal Doulton “Yorkshire Rose,” china set at  Antiques on QueenDowntown Port Hope, ON; I absolutely fell in love with it.

This high quality Royal Doulton set has 12 dinner plates, 12 dessert plates, 12 bread and butter plates, 12 cups and saucers, 4 fruit bowls, a tea pot, a platter, an oval vegetable dish and a cream and sugar set.

I also came across a beautiful hand made lace table cloth, circa 1940, and the labour of love along with the intricate details were stunning. Additionally, I added  a gorgeous linen napkin set, circa 1937, and decided to do an informal table setting  – the results were beautiful!

Here are some great tips for setting an informal dinner table for your family Mother’s Day brunch or any other special occasion.

  1.  Place your forks and napkins on the left of your service plate and your salad plate.  The salad fork should be placed on the outside, followed by the dinner fork, which is placed next to your plates.
  2. On the right side of your plates, place your soup spoon on the outer end, followed by your teaspoon and your dinner knife, which is placed near to the plates.
  3. Your cup and saucer, your water and wine glasses are placed on the right hand side of your plate settings. The water glass is placed to the upper right, followed by your red wine and white wine glasses.

I completed my table décor with a signed Waterford crystal vase, and two crystal candleholders, circa, 1920.

There you have it Beautiful People!  Happy table setting.

I truly appreciate your continued support and love for the blog.  Wishing you all a Happy Mother’s Day filled with love, joy and laughter.

No fuss….just clean and simple

Hello Beautiful People!

I like the two for one coverage I get when I apply the MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation, in addition to the impressive matte finish that creates an attractive, flawless face. MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation contains both silica – which absorbs the oils, and talc which absorbs the moisture (and prevents caking).  My face maintains a fresh, clean, vibrant and flawless look throughout the day, and lasts at least eight hours before a touch up is necessary. This is definitely a product I would recommend for your beauty bag!

I use the latex sponge which comes in the packaging; it is soft and flexible and can pick up a generous amount of product with one swipe. I also use my MAC brush #134, to apply the Studio Fix when I want a sparse amount of product on my brush for a natural, radiant, flawless finish.  I was so pleased with the results of the MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation – NW45 I was wearing, as it complimented my neutral, understated makeup… and kept it on point!

 On Saturday my husband and I went out for a date night; it was such a beautiful evening! The food was extraordinary, and the service was impeccable. The Italian restaurant is tucked away by the harbor side, and is possibly one of the best kept secrets in this quaint town 60 minutes east of Toronto.

A Noteworthy Birthday!

Hello Beautiful People!

This year’s birthday was pretty special for me, I ended a decade of an amazing journey of true womanhood. Overall, life has been good! I have had to make a lot of lemonades with the lemons life served, but I was blessed in that decade, I accomplished so much, and more importantly, I did not have to spend one day in a hospital bed.

So, I celebrated the beauty of life, the hope of a bright future, the discovery of the fountain of youth and the blessing of good health with my husband, Kelvin; our birthdays are only two days a part. We went high in the skies of Toronto, which is symbolic of how we intend to soar in the next decade of our lives.

The “Say What?!” Moment

Hello Again Beautiful People!

My husband and I recently dined at a cozy family owned restaurant in the trendy Ossington Ave and Queen St. West neighbourhood, Toronto, named Soos. The staff were warm and welcoming, the atmosphere was relaxed, the décor was vibrant and the music was energetic. Soos restaurant conceptualizes the “modern interpretation of Malaysian street food”; and with that said, we had the “Say What?!” moment – the deer staring in the headlight kind a look.  We were not familiar with the menu choices, nor how to pronounce the names; however, the server did an excellent job informing us what to expect in taste, texture and she also gave us a quick pronunciation tutorial.

The food was bursting with flavours and textures! We started with Keropok (kerr-OH-pock): this is a house made prawn crackers, complimented with the Soos peanut sauce.  My husband’s main course was Laksa, (lag-sa), which is chicken, prawn, tofu ball, falangal, mee, vermicelli and curry broth.  I feasted on the Char Kway Teow (char-way-ow): this is tiger prawns, chives, sambal, beansprout, egg drop and charred rice fettuccine.

Toronto’s Entrepreneurs – The Makeup Artist & The Closet Maven

Hello Beautiful People!

I have had the pleasure of spending time with a talented young Entrepreneur, Marie Mercurius, who is the proprietor of The Closet Maven.  I attended one of Marie’s seminars on space organization: it was an informative session, and her presentation was lively and interactive.  If your closet is overran with too many bags, shoes, dresses, skirts, shirts, pants, sweaters and hats, I would encourage you to follow Marie on social media or book an appointment for a session with her to become organized.

 Marie was involved in the creative arts from a young age, where she played the flute and drums in high school and pursued performing as a singer and dancer.

She hosted a weekly radio show for eight years, which gave her a good taste of broadcasting, an industry she never inspired to work in but found a love for. She would love to parlay that into TV hosting her own edutainment show.  Marie says being creative is what fulfills her and her business allows her to do that. She helps to de-clutter and organize closets for women so that getting dressed is an enjoyable experience. A wardrobe that is properly stored and well-cared for ensures a great return on your investment.

Here are five great tips Marie would like to leave with you, on how to store your out of season clothing:

1. Place all of your summer clothes in a pile so you can conduct an end of season audit. Anything that no longer fits, is uncomfortable to wear or you don’t feel confident in should be donated.

2.  Make sure everything that will be stored is clean. Check for stains (stains sitting for an extended period of time may be more difficult to remove), missing buttons, loose hems and broken zippers.

3.  Places to store your clothes:

  • Under the bed – use low totes preferably made of cotton or canvas with lids as they allow your clothes to breathe better than plastic totes. You need at least 6” of space under your bed.
  • Back of the closets – breathable garment bags, cotton, bamboo are your best bet. Again, try to avoid plastic or nylon. These are ideal for dresses or items that you’d like to keep wrinkle free.
  • On closet shelf – storage boxes with lids, preferably fabric lined ones. These can be labeled on the front to find things quickly and can be stacked.
  • Under a dresser – if you have room.

4. Be sure to add lavender scented sachets or cedar balls to stave off any unwanted guests and to keep everything smelling fresh.

5.  When it comes to footwear, check heels for missing lifts and soles to make sure they are in good shape. Anything that needs to be repaired can go in a separate pile.

  • Make sure they are clean before storing.
  • You can use plastic, acrylic shoe boxes or the original shoe boxes to store them. If using plastic, I suggest lining them with tissue paper for added protection. Label boxes for visibility and store under your bed or on shelves in your closet.
  • Under bed canvas shoe organizers are another option.

I was a guest of Mayor John Tory, at a special breakfast on July 10, as part of The International Economic Forum of The Americas – Toronto Global Forum. The formal portion of the breakfast was a discussion between Mayor Tory and three guest panelists regarding business development, investment and trade, and opportunities to build further relationships between Toronto and the Americas. The guest panelists were Alexander Mora, Foreign Trade Minister to Costa Rica,  Hans Schulz, Vice-President for the Private Sector and Non-Sovereign Guaranteed Operations, Inter-American Development Bank, and  Romaine Seguin, President of UPS Americas Region.

At the venue where The International Economic Forum of The Americas – Toronto Global Forum was held, it presented a unique opportunity to network and grow your professional base.  I am sure more than 50% of the persons attending the forum had their business cards with them – not a bad idea. However, when it comes to you and your business cards, exhibiting good business card etiquette usually serves well.

Here are some  tips for business card etiquette:

  • Do not go up to a senior executive and ask for a business card; you wait until they give you one.
  • Give your card with your name facing the person, without your thumb covering your name.
  • Do not take a business card that is soiled and present it to someone, even if it is your last card.
  • Do not pass out your business cards during a meal.
  • Always have your cards with you because you never know!

Thank you for stopping by the blog; you’ve been good company.

Business Ready

Hello Beautiful People!

When it comes to being business ready, your deportment, attire and makeup is just as important as being qualified and confident. For my business attire, I wore a clean cut Club Monaco pant and jacket, makeup that was vibrant but not overbearing and offensive and minimal accessories.

I was “Business Ready” when I met Billionaire/Philanthropist Michael Lee-Chin;  I was feeling confident, self-assured and “knowing my value” as  Mika Brzezinski shares with women.

Kelvin I. Kellman, Vanessa Ferguson Kellman and Michael Lee-Chin

I am coming with 10+ years experience in the financial industry and there are three key principles of wealth creation I took from Mr. Lee-Chin as it relates to investing.

1.  A sound intellectual framework for making decisions.

2. Control of emotions especially during times of adversity.

3. Access to the highest quality of private and public offerings.

Well, there you have it Beautiful People! Invest in being “Business Ready,” as you’ll never know who your next photo op will be with.  Thanks for stopping by the blog and for your wonderful support. xox

There is a delicate balance when applying makeup to mature skin; to achieve a fresh, glowing, vibrant face, it requires patience, the right products and skills.  Here are the steps I follow to create that polished finish for mature makeup.

1.  PREPARE THE SKIN:

  • Mature skin needs to be hydrated because it tends to be drier and dehydrated.  The areas to hydrate are the eyes and the nose as this will improve the overall makeup application.

2.  CONCEALER:

  • Choose a concealer that has a moisturizing formula, apply it to the inner sockets, the inner lids, the marionette lines (lines that run from the corners of the mouth, down along the chin) and to the deep chin creases.
  • Avoid putting concealer on eye bags or on crows feet; however, you may conceal underneath the eye bag if there is a pronounced dark circle.
  • Do stipple (blend out), the concealer over dark shadows on the face to get a smooth even canvas.

3.  FOUNDATION:

  • Great foundation gives a youthful appearance, soften lines and sets a velvety finish. If you have not achieved this outcome, you have either chosen the incorrect makeup formula: Oil free, oil absorbing or powder foundation, which are too drying for the skin; or you have applied too much foundation or the foundation formula is too thick.
  • Remove excess oil from the skin by blotting it with a tissue to avoid using too much powder.

4.  POWDER:

  • Powder should be applied sparingly to mature skin; overuse will bring attention to fine lines, which will have a cakey finish. For a beautiful finish, go over the skin with a clean powder puff, as this will blend together the powder and foundation nicely.

5.  EYESHADOW:

  • It’s all about colour selection! Choose high contrast colours for an attractive, eye catching look.
  • Select medium light colours, they help mature eyes look lively and vibrant.  Matte medium dark eye contour on puffy creases works fabulous! It lessens the puffiness and gives the eye a younger, lighter look.
  • Rich colours like red and violet will appear as a black eye or bruises, also pearly colours and intense iridescence textures on mature creases ages the skin.
  • Drawing crease and adding eye contour can be tricky when it comes to mature skin. By lifting the crease at the centre it allows you to draw the crease in higher.

6.  EYELINER:

  • Eyeliner is important for defining the eye and giving it new life.  When lining mature eyes, gently pull the skin taut and release as you deposit the product. When the skin is pulled taut, it allows the product to be deposited nearer to the lash line; however, when the skin is released, it shows the artist  how the line will appear on the eye.

7.  EYEBROWS:

  • Focus on the mid and the upper portion of the brow when filling in the colour, you will end up with classic looking brows. When you fill in the remaining lower portion of the brow, you will create amazing looking brows.

8.  CHEEKS:

  • The zygomatic area of a mature face tends to lose its firm, plump appearance.  Be cautious when countering this area.
  • Mature skin tends to have broken capillaries on the cheeks, so help diminish the redness from surfacing through the concealer in this area, do not use red hued cheek blushes.

9.  LIPS:

  • To create a neat and straight lip line on mature lips, a slight smile is required; this allows the corrective lip line to be drawn effortlessly. A smile will taut the skin around the mouth making it easier to draw a defined line.

Well, that’s it for now beautiful people. Thanks for stopping in and reading about “Mature & Looking Fabulous!” Don’t forget to like and share my blog with your friends and family. Your support is greatly appreciated. xox
