Oh Baby!

24 Apr


Beaumont Children’s Hospital in Michigan hosts the best Baby Fairs. Last week the site was Royal Oak, Mich. where more than 500 new parents or parent-to-be attended mini-classes and educational forums on everything baby.  Danialle Karmanos, of the Karmanos Center for Natural Birth, inspired many new moms talking about natural childbirth.I had the opportunity to highlight the event on Fox2. If you live in the Detroit area, visit this week’s fair at Beaumont Hospital Troy on April 25 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

I was treated to a make-up event at Saks Fifth Avenue in Troy, Mich. by my friend Randie Levin. Randie bid on the event at a local charity auction. About a dozen women watched Randie get a new look from the Bobbi Brown make-up artist. Here are the 12 easy steps to for a natural look.

1. Toner

2. Eye Cream Repair

3. Hydrating moisturizer cream

4. Concealer under the eyes

5. Foundation

6. Bronzer and illuminating powder

7. Lip Liner

8. Lipstick

9. Eyebrows

10. Eye Shadow

11. Eye Liner

12. Mascara

Randie looked great. Everyone thought that the BB Cream product was  must-have as Randie’s skin glowed.  See Randie’s natural polished look.

50 Shades of Mac N’ Cheese

9 Mar

Start with the classic dish and then pile on the toppings. It’s everything from jalapeno peppers to dried cranberries to olives. Or just go for one of the specialties like Macho Nacho — hamburger, onions, olives, bell peppers, tomatoes, pepper jack and jalapenos. The extreme veggie with broccoli, mushrooms, onions, spinach, bell peppers, tomatoes, Swiss and cheddar is quite tasty.

It’s not your mom’s mac n’ cheese!
