Reminds me of my first bathroom in my first apartment.
God, I love Richmond.

I have just learned that one of my favorite authors has passed away.
Gabriel Garcia Margquez made my heart soar while reading One Hundred Years of Solitude. I remember I could barely contain myself when I reached the end of the book. It was as if the world as I knew it was over and I gained a new perspective on how life is truly amazing, mysterious. His writing changed how I looked at myself and the world around me. It made me cherish my family more than I ever thought I could. I looked at them all differently after that book and realized that we’re all here to fulfill our roles in a greater story, the Greatest Story.
Thank you for your brilliance Mr. Marquez. You will be greatly missed and I thank God that I can visit you again and again through the great works you created as well as the life you painted.
Thank you also for the quote above. No matter what, there is always something left to love and to me that is what life is all about, Love.

Spring Break has begun and I intend to do a lot of walking and photographing my surroundings. A week all to myself! Yes! A day trip to NYC is in order, perhaps? On verra!
Everything is in bloom right now and I couldn’t be happier. It’s absolutely stunning in Richmond right now and I’m going to enjoy every single minute of it. Time to break out the whites, the chinos, the sandals and a great blazer. Ready for anything.

Lately people have been curious as to what my skincare regimen is. They’ve said that my skin is glowing and that Virginia really agrees with me. Thanks! I am usually a happy person (this helps a great deal)but I have a confession to make. I’ve discovered an amazing at home retexturizing peel: Avon’s Anew Clinical Retexturizing Peel!. I’ve tried it for a week now and my skin is officially ready for the summer. Pores are clean and tiny, skin is brighter and smoother. I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! It’s easy to use and very affordable.
I also use Aesop’s Fabulous Facial Oil. from time to time. This winter was very harsh and this kept me from looking like I had the Mojave Desert on my face. Mornings after I apply this oil, I just splash with water, pat dry and apply a moisturizer from Mario Bedescu and I’m ready for the world. Bedescu’s products are simple, good for my skin and are easy to travel with. What’s better than that?
What’s your skincare regimen?
