From time to time the good folks from various brands, PR companies, and marketing firms graciously provide product to ThisThatBeauty for editorial consideration. Much appreciated! However, ThisThatBeauty readers can take comfort in knowing that gratis product has never nor will it ever guarantee a mention on my little old blog. Simply put, I write about whatever I darn well please. Thank you very much!

ThisThatBaby: Phoebe Discovers Pippa & Julie

Phoebe and ThisThatBaby

As a new mom, I am all about all of the ‘Mother/ Daughter’ things. I absolutely love having a daughter and doing precious little girly things with her make me so happy.

Bergdorf Goodman Beauty Files: How To Choose Perfume For Someone Else

Oud Ispahan

With the holiday season upon us, I can’t help but get my into a gift-giving state of mind and, inevitably, fragrance is part of the equation. But pairing the right scent to the right individual can prove challenging…and even downright disastrous.  Luckily I’ve got friends in fragrant places. I recently sat down with Roberto Adolfo Vargas, Northeast Regional Educator for Maison Francis Kurkdjian, [...]

#TTBToursLA: Le Trench Coat

Le Trench and ThisThatBeauty

The entire time I was in LA during #TTBToursLA, I sort of lived in Le Trench Coat. The shape, the fit, the texture, the fabric — everything about it is 100% my style and pitch perfect for travel. Upon un-boxing Le Trench Coat, I was totally taken with the look and feel of the fabric. It felt so [...]

#TTBToursLA: My Quick Day to Night Face with CoverFX

#TTBToursLA with CoverFX

Beauty in a hurry is sort of my thing now. Between being a working mother/ new mom and a beauty entrepreneur dead-set on world domination (joking…a little) — lately I’m finding it more and more challenging to dive into a 45-minute beautification session. I mean, I love being able to take that sort of time [...]

Crest 3D White Whitestrips Promises 2 Weeks To Your Whitest Smile


If you want bright, white sparkly teeth it is ill-advised to consume coffee and red wine on a regular basis. This basically leaves me up a creek without out a paddle  for two reasons: I love wine and absolutely love a nice glass after a pressing day. I’m the mom of a 14-month old….which basically [...]

The goal of my participation is to help spread awareness about the the alarming fact that many families, on a regular basis, are going without meals. Even more shocking, much of this is happenng right there in the US…and yes, very [...]

#GiveGreatGifts This Holiday Season

Levis Cropped Pullover in Fairisle 3

Call me corny or a Miss Goody Two Shoes — but I sincerely believe it’s better to give than receive. For me, there’s a magical feeling that stirs my soul when I give something that makes the recipient light up. And, obviously, giving a great gift need not be expensive…it just has to be something [...]

#TTBToursLA – The Recap

Le Trench and ThisThatBeauty

No wonder it’s called La La Land … When I think back to Team ThisThatBeauty’s time in LA…. la la la la la comes to mind. What a dreamy town! The weather, the food, the people…and the vibe! Yes, the vibe! And at the risk of sounding unoriginal — I simply love La La Land. [...]

Bergdorf Goodman Beauty Files: Patchology Energizing Eye Patches Review

Patchology Energizing Eye Patches

They look a little weird…there’s no denying that. But think of Patchology Energizing Eye Patches as little press on recharging stations for overworked eyes. Feeling fatigued? Try Patchology. Excess under eye baggage? Patchology! Looking a little dull? Yep, Patchology! For every aging concern of the eye, there’s a patch for that…actually, two patches. Intrigued?  Click below to read my review on the Bergdorf Goodman blog. [...]
