Celebrate the 1st Day of Summer

Shopping has always been one of my favorite ways to celebrate MANY different occasions and since tomorrow marks the first day of Summer, what better way to celebrate then to indulge in some
retail-therapy worthy resort wear!  
My "go-to" line for swimwear/ resort wear that keeps me stylish, cool and comfortable is 

Not only is the swimwear made with figure-flattering detail in a salivating selection of styles,  my favorite aspect of the BECCA line is that the cover ups are just as fabulous.  Many styles can be worn as resort wear by itself as seen on our last show taking it poolside at The Gaylord Texan.

The entire collection is available at Everything But Water and yes, I know the florescent lighting in those stores suck, but I promise if you shop this brand for bathing suits/ resort wear you won't leave empty handed or disappointed. :))

                               HAPPY SHOPPING!!  HAPPY SUMMER!!  HAPPY SHOPPING!!

Last Minute Father's Day Gift Ideas

Shopping for the metrosexual Dad this Father's Day but don't quite know the latest grooming trends for men?  No problem….here's some last minute ideas that he will be over the moon about…literally.


With it's new "space age" technology the popular Kiehl's line has developed a way to control oily skin for men with a space age material called Aerolite, an advanced material based on the science of Aerogel which has been used in space exploration.  All I know is it's a new frontier in men's skin care leaving the skin feeling rebalanced, pores minimized and shine begone.


Forget Old Spice- the metrosexual Dad wants the LATEST fragrances and will be thrilled you saved money purchasing them saving 20% or more from my favorite site  Every single fragrance you can think of, you will find it here and while your at it, don't forget to shop for yourself!

                                                 MIRACLE SKIN TRANSFORMER SPF 20


This product my own husband fell in love with!  It's 5 in 1 one product solution hydrates, protects the skin with antioxidants, and primes and airbrushes the skin with it's matte translucent satin finish.  Available at Nordstroms.

Father's Day Tribute

This past weekend's "Live Love Laugh Today with Linda Cooper & Susie McAuley Show" that just aired had special meaning to me-  Susie and I celebrated our Father's who are no longer with us and honored them for Father's Day.  Many of you can relate unfortunately to the loss of a parent, but I feel so fortunate to have my TV show as this wonderful platform to honor my Dad's memory.  In case you missed it- please click the picture to view.  The tribute is at the end....
For those lucky ones who's Father's is still with you, hug them a little tighter this Father's Day.

Summer Must Haves

Probably the biggest perk as a shopping expert is to try the latest products, potions and gadgets to hit the market.  My favorite finds are ones that make life a little Brighter..Easier..Better and of course Fun.
Here is the first installment of my Summer Must Haves~

                                                              1. UE BOOM SPEAKER

Ultimate Ears Boom Wireless Speaker  by Logitech adds instant life to the party on the go. Amazing sound and cool design make this an instant hit.  I love how many fun colors and patterns you can choose from which also makes it a FAB fashion accessory. $199 retail price available at Target.

I love this entire natural skincare line by dermatologist Dr. Gary Goldfaden.  It delivers physician strength results with no appointment required.  My favorite from the line is the SUN VISOR SPF 30 spray that can be applied over makeup.  Yes, that's right…..OVER makeup- because we all know now that SPF doesn't last more than 75 minutes while in direct sun and needs to be reapplied.  This spray on application is ultralight translucent, oil free and fragrance free. 
Available at Stanley Korshak- $45 retail price.


Yes, Laura Mercier has many wonderful products from her makeup line but this one is my personal favorite. It's clump proof, smear proof and sweat proof…..and even if your not going swimming this Laura Mercier waterproof mascara will stay put while the rest of your makeup drips off your face in our Texas heat. :)  Retail price: $20
