A woman having her hair done and coming out feeling beautiful and attractive. Does that come with age?
When did my makeup routine become more about wrinkle and acne products than makeup products?
Basically I use BB cream foundation, a smattering of blush, mascara and Burts Bees lip color. I’m done. Take it or leave it.

My baby boy came home to visit me from college. It’s been an unusually stressful week and semester for us all.
What a great way to spend the evening, listening to jazz and eating sushi. Appreciate your women, men!!!

Skin cancer

If you follow my blog, you’ll know that I went to the dermatologist to have a tattoo checked out that had failed to heal due to a red ink allergy. While there, I pointed out and itchy, flaky spot that looked like an infected mosquito bite or a pimple. I can’t recall when it appeared but I do recall my clothing and seat belt irritating it this summer. The dermatologist looked at it quickly and believed, as I did, that it was simply an Actinic kerotosis (AK) ( or anAge spot hm mmm!) . She removed it and sent it in for a biopsy since I’m not a child of the sunscreen generation. Suspecting a possible pre-cancerous Basel cell, it surprisingly came back as squamous cell, a more severe form of skin cancer but not as serious as melanoma. Luckily, it was caught early and though I wear sunscreen on my face regularly, the spot on my collar bone may have been caused by sun reflected by my car window. We can never know. Childhood exposure, I was a spring board diver, and later exposure on areas missed by sunscreen. It happens. Please be checked out. Ask your regular physician and follow any referrals to a dermatologist if needed. I’d recommend a plastic surgeon for any larger biopsies, because that’s what they do. And do well! I follow up next week for a final freeze, I hope, and then will see the derm every 6 months for the next year. Not too bad, but I could live without it.
