Van Gogh's Ear Rockefeller Center Art

I could sit and watch all the tourists pass and stare and comment at this art installation at the entrance of Rockefeller Center and Fifth Avenue in New York City. Funded by Public Art Fund created by Elmgreen and Dragset this depiction of Van Gogh's Ear which is a pool on the side is catching lots of attention. I have heard "Only in New York" comments and also heard and watched people stare at the pool like it is a fascinating painting and studying it's angles. I love it. One can say Van Gogh was insane cutting off his ear and one can also say it is insane to see an upright pool on Fifth Avenue! The Art Installation will be up from April 13, 2016 to June 3, 2016 at Fifth Avenue between 49th & 50th Streets. 

Van Gogh's Ear or an  Upright Pool?

Easter Bonnet Parade in NYC

Warning this post picture heavy:

Easter Sunday on New York City's Fifth Avenue was filled with lots of bright colors and interesting "Bonnets". It was the Annual Easter Bonnet Parade from 49th Street to 56th Street. It is not your normal parade with floats and marchers and bands but it is as colorful and as fun. The streets are closed off to traffic at this time and everyone walks around wearing their fabulously decorated bonnets and others acting like the paparazzi trying to get a picture of the masterpieces (ME). Fifth Avenue seems magical on this day as the doors of St. Patrick's Cathedral swing open after mass and parishioners in their Easter finest come out into the parade of bonnets. Rockefeller Center is decorated with a giant topiary bunny balancing an Easter Egg on his nose and a big bush tail that seemed to wiggle with glee. Lining Chanel Gardens on both sides were big colorful adorned Eggs. If you are ever in NYC during Easter it is a must to see and participate in. I hope you have fun looking at the pictures xoox

Eye Lift Without the Surgery - Contours RX

I am turning 50 in May and wow seems like every beauty product color wise is geared for young people and all creams and lotions for the more mature woman. So I am on this Journey to 50 I am trying different "help" me products. Flipping the channel one day I saw eyes and miracle on HSN (Home Shopping Channel) and stopped. I stood there mesmerized by the happenings of this product called Lids By Design by Contours RX. They are medical grade instant eyelid correcting strips. Instant eye lift without getting cut up. They are easy to apply. You can put makeup on top of it and seriously do not see any mark or any hint anything is there, These Strips come in different mm sizes so if you need them for every day use you can use a lower number and for special events you can use a higher mm. Below are some places you can purchase them. Love love love them! I am looking towards 50 with my eyes wide open. xoox

Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Mask - Journey to 50

Hi all! Sorry I have been M.I.A lots going on and trying to restructure my life. I turn 50 in May and I am noticing so many changes in my mood, skin very dry, ok everything is very dry, my hair used to get oily after 2 days but now dry....wait I said dry all over already! Did I mention my weight? Well it seems that as I get stressed at work, I gain weight so much faster. So I am going to visit this Blog much more often and hope you join me and please write with any of your tips for make-up, oils, special diets tricks, motivations and make-up that will not smudge crack or make me look like I am applying to the Clown School for the Solid Gold Dancers! (not funny I know) Ok Hold my hand and lets jump together,,,,,

I ordered from QVC this Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Kit that came with a wonderful cosmetics bag. I am trying to find products for my changing skin and hope that every Season in New York it will keep working or that I find lots of great products. What You do: First cleanse your face with the 24K Gold Pure Luxury Cleansing Butter, pat dry then apply the luxurious 24K Gold Mask all over your face. Keep the Gold Mask on for 15to 20 minutes then rinse off with warm water. Truthfully I bought this kit because it was "Gold" and perfect for my Journey to 50 post but I have to admit I used it for 3 weeks and it was "solid gold". Corny I know. This is not only for older women I believe that you should start taking care of your skin early oh and it helps having great genes. 

I am trying different eyeliners and having not a good time with it. What do you use? See you soon. xoox

Peter Thomas Roth can be found at the following:
