Beauty and the BeatSarah James
I love looking at beauty products, reading about beauty products, experimenting with beauty products, making lists of beauty products that I need to investigate…ENOUGH ALREADY, SARAH. Really, it’s ridiculous. When my Sephora catalog comes in the mail? Hand me a glass of wine and don’t bother me for about 45 minutes.
Here’s the thing, though. I’m not some high fashion beauty maven. I don’t enjoy making my eyelids resemble a golden plum sunset nor do I claim to know the secrets of laser face rejuvenation. If you are looking to recreate a Hunger Games-inspired look, you probably need to move along. I’m all about approachable beauty. Healthy skin, “no-makeup” makeup, and fresh faces are my beat. And it’s not just cosmetics – taking care of ourselves from the inside out is huge. Health and wellness are very high priorities in my household. We mamas have enough on our plate, so feeling good is the ultimate key to looking good. As for the day-to-day grind, we need to easily transition from errand-running and soccer practice to work meetings and date night.
So, I hope you’ll join me in this new venture starting in April. I can promise lots of recommendations, lots of fun lists, and lots of questions (hopefully) answered. And yes, I am naming the column after one of my very favorite albums of all time, Beauty and the Beat. I mean, COME ON. It’s the Go-Gos. How could I not?
Do me a favor, though. I am keeping a running list of topics that I’d like to address, and I’d love to hear from you. Any beauty or wellness-related questions or topics that you’d like to see addressed? Let me know in the comments, and I’ll see you beauties next week!
