Spring is on its way.

Ciao bella,

Here I am to illuminate the beauty we all should possess.

Spring is on its way. The flowers will be blooming and so will you with just a few tricks of my trade.

So glamouramas, get ready for the spark. Start aiming high! Here we go…

Throw out or store those bulky winter clothes. Especially the one with the reindeers. Ugh! Don’t need those anymore. Start summerizing your wardrobe with spring in mind.

Go shopping and put some new colors with textures into your life. Pretty prints will make you shine this season. Find a style that will look great on you. Not just what your best friend is wearing.

Not sure of style? Then check out a store where a professional can tell you what looks best. Don’t be afraid to ask –it’s their job.

April Cornell on Brattle Street in Cambridge…specializing in the “pretty” stuff. They have always stocked wonderful prints and fabrics. You will find the Easter bonnets are designed in all sizes.

A pretty new dress or a flirty skirt –that’s what men want. Paint your nails to match your clothes. Paint your toes to match your nails. That’s my job. I can bring peeling, weak nails back to life! Try the French manicure on fingers and toes. Let me paint a flower and show off spring.

Hit the make-up counters. Schedule a free make-up consultation with one of my fav lines Benefit. This line can be found at any Sephora or Filene’s. For individualized customized care, see the girls at Filene’s Downtown Crossing. Also ask about a skin care analysis. A pretty clear mug with a great coiffure will get you anywhere.

Great haircuts are coming out of Safar, Newbury Street, Boston. Trendy shapes and styles that are designed just for you by talented hair technicians. Highlights and lowlights will bring out your crowning glory. Do check out a local salon and let them work out their creativity on you – a star will shine.

Buona Pasqua.
