Well, my skincare elimination diet worked, I have found the culprit for my allergic reaction and it's a serum I have been using for two months. The rest of the products from the line are just fine, it's just an ingredient in this serum. So glad to know so I can move forward! Last year, my mom moved from my childhood home to a townhouse. A major downsizing. She's still…

In Direct Sunlight

Lifestyle

Gosh I used to hate when Karl would take photos of me in direct sunlight. You could see every roll, and often the seams of my Spanx. Karl took this while I was waiting for my Uber to take me to the Washington Post to see Robin Givhan interview Derek Lam.

Lifestyle

Last weekend I was in Rehoboth Beach and got a rash on my neck. I thought it was the hotel's feather pillow and got a non-feather one but it didn't go away. In fact, it got worse and today (Friday) It's from my bust up to my chin, on my cheeks, around my ears, and a bit on my scalp. My doc thinks it's an allergic reaction to my skincare…
