in Potpourri by

One of the best ways to refresh your point of view is to refresh your look, and makeup can be an amazingly fun way to creatively change your appearance.

Video: Missed it? Interview with Daire St. Denis and Sweet Seduction (Harlequin Blaze)

in Romance by

All it takes is one sweet taste…  Daisy Sinclair knows how to make a guy moan with raw pleasure. She should, as owner of the best damn bakery in Chicago. Her cinnamon buns are borderline orgasmic! Of course, standing in front of the city’s biggest (and sexy-as-hell) food critic in her skivvies isn’t the most professional first impression. Especially when he has a wicked glint in his eye… Jamie Forsythe isn’t exactly a food critic; his twin brother is. One look at Daisy’s mouthwatering curves, and Jamie knows only that he wants to have his cake and Daisy, too. Attraction mixed with deception is a recipe for disaster—the naughtiest, hottest kind imaginable. And there’s no way Jamie can resist being…

in Non-Fiction by

I looked at my reflection and despaired. As an exhausted young mother I felt ugly and saw that a new dress or face cream would never help. I was at risk of passing on a habit of feeling miserable about my looks to my baby girl—if nothing changed. Soon afterward Phoebe Baker Hyde made a vow: to give up new clothes, makeup, haircuts, and jewelry in hopes of revealing something she had always paid lip service to but never quite believed in—her inner beauty. The Beauty Experiment chronicles Hyde’s quest for self-acceptance in nothing but her own skin. In thoughtful, exquisite prose, Hyde holds up a mirror to all women and shows how perfectionism can keep us from achieving what…

Hollywood Makeup Artist: makeup counter to Oscars

in Potpourri by

Do you ever stay for the credits at the end of a film? Most don’t, but I do. And for one very good reason. My younger sister, LuAnn Claps. When she was a young girl, and unbeknownst to me at the time, she would go into my bathroom after I had left for a date and play with my makeup, which I sloppily left spread out on the vanity. She was, and is still very neat and organized, so I never had a clue that those sweet little fingers of hers where actually making their way into my private stash and on to her beautiful face while I was out for the evening. I should have realized something was up…
