Looking Your Best With Morphe



For awhile now I have been looking for a make-up brand I could count on. The bases I tried were thick, heavy, never the right color and didn’t make my skin glow. Then I was introduced to Morphe. First I tried their Lightform Extended Hydration Foundation ($20), weightless, long lasting and corrects imperfections instantly with undetectable coverage. My skin also stayed hydrated and radiant.
I also use the Jumbo Bake & Set Soft Focus Setting Powder ($19). This sets my makeup with a soft, natural finish, that lasts.

Their makeup brushes apply everything with a smooth texture and the base. I love the Lightform Dual Ended Complexion Brush ($15) which just makes my life a lot easier. Also the Three-In-One Brow Sculpting Brush ($9)

Another great item is the Continuous Prep & Set Mist+ ($19) and Continuous Setting Mist ($17). What these products do is prime and keep your make-up lasting all day. Infused with vitamin E, vitamin B5, and fruit extracts—sets liquid and powder makeup, enhancing its look and performance all day.

If you are looking for great make-up that doesn’t cost a fortune Morphe is the one to try.

Guests dined on the fare by Chef Kimberley Vega , which was really well done. My Table had the sliders which were plump juicy and plentiful.

Fashion icon Iris Apfel Brings Her Style To Heaven



Portrait of Iris by

Iris Apfel was born August 29, 1921 in Astoria, Queens. I had the pleasure of meeting Iris, through Errol Rappaport. His mother Francesca had been one of the first people to bring Iris to recognition and had at one time had a lot of her work in her houses. The two of them had been friends for over 70 years.

Iris at 90, she began teaching at the University of Texas at Austin. At 94, she was the subject of a documentary by Albert Maysles, simply titled “Iris”. At 97, she became a model and modeled for Vogue Italia, Kate Spade, M.A.C. and many others.  Iris was also the oldest person to have had a Barbie doll made by Mattel in her image. In addition to modeling, she also designed her own clothing and accessories line for HSN and published a book in 2018. It was then she became a fashion icon and self-proclaimed “geriatric starlet”, at the age of 102. Sadly she passed away on Friday in her Palm Beach, Florida, home.

Apfel was known for chunky bracelets, layers of necklaces, and those iconic heavy-framed glasses – she nicknamed eyebobs. She came to worldwide attention in 2005 when the Metropolitan Museum of Art showed an exhibition focusing on her fashion sense titled Rara Avis (Rare Bird).
