Lemon-Ade Exfoliant for Body and Face

There are so many exfoliants on the market, some better than others, but ladies, trust me when I tell you, you really only need one. And it's probably already in your kitchen. Take half a lemon and while you are in the shower or bath (certainly in a tub because it can get messy) rub the lemon half along your limbs. Follow up with a liberal sprinkling of sugar and rub.
Use this exfoliant all over your body, even your face. Try to let exfoliant sit on your skin for about ten minutes. It will become slightly sticky as the lemon-sugar mix forms a simple syrup.After  you rinse off, your skin will be soft as silk.
Fresh lemon juice contains naturally occurring alpha-hydroxy in the form ascorbic acid and is excellent at eliminating fine lines, age spots, and dry patches of skin. Sugar contains glycolic acid, another naturally occuring alpha-hydroxy and the granules are the perfect size to deliver a smooth polish. Even better, the sugar dissolves in water, so this DIY scrub will not require a messy clean-up. Just rinse away and follow up with your favorite moisturizer.

Lady Like Elegance at Zac Posen Pre-Fall 2014

Zac Posen Dials 'M' for Drama in his remarkable pre-fall collection that marries 50's ladylike elegance, with Hollywood grandeur. Posen's ability to create opulent shapes with minimal seams is unparalleled.  His gorgeous fabric choices, duchess satin, organza, and lace, seem barely touched, belying the hours of labor required to craft each piece. I love this collection! Give me a fur stole, a fierce red lip and black hosiery any day!
