Skin Authority on HSN Beauty Report 10/30 + $138 Giveaway

[ 21 ] October 24, 2014 |

Celeste Hilling, Skin Authority CEO featured on

10/30 on HSN Beauty Report 7 & 8 pm EST

Skin Authority Firm & Fit Duo

Skin Authority Firm & Fit Duo will be featured on HSN Beauty Report on 10/30 (reg. $138, special HSN: $79

I have been a Skin Authority Ambassador for almost 5 years. I have tried a wide range of Skin Authority products featuring many in individual reviews on my blog. I was interested when Skin Authority wanted to send along to me their Firm & Fit Duo that will be the featured star on HSN Beauty Report 10/30. Most Skin Authority products that I tried, I loved, and 7 of them are still part of my beauty routine daily or weekly!

Skin Authority Firm & Fit Duo

Firm & Fit Duo from Skin Authority

The Firm & Fit Duo consists of two of my all time favorite Skin Authority products! You can learn more about each of them when they are featured on the HSN Beauty Report on 10/30 7 & 8 PM EST. Celeste Hilling, Skin Authority CEO and (BLONDE…you know that’s important on this blog) woman over 45, has been invited to present Fit & Firm Duo for an unheard of HSN special price of $79 (normally $138).

Celeste Hilling Skin Authority CEO

I have been using both of the Fit & Firm Duo products for 4 years. They are normally sold separately, but it’s brilliant to pair them in my opinion. I have always used them together (along with the Skin Authority Daily Cleanser)

The first product in the DUO is the Skin Authority Resurfacing Accelerator. Resurfacing Accelerator is a gentle leave-on peel that transforms the appearance of your skin as you sleep. I love that it works without making my uber-sensitive skin feel red and raw. Clinical results show: 29% improvement in moisture levels; 24% increase in firmness; 33% reduction in fine lines; 5% increase in skin firmness.

The second product in the DUO is the Tri-Power Peptide Hydrator. The Tri-Power Peptide formula is the triple threat in the fight against aging. It firms, evens tone, and hydrates. This is the only moisturizer I currently use. My skin always feel smooth and plump when I apply it. Clinical studies show: 550% increase in collagen, 60% reduction in fine lines; 44% reduction in deep wrinkles, 14% reduction in roughness, 19.5% increase in tone, 10% reduction in age spots.

Shelley Zurek Skin Authority Ambassador

At 53, I think my skin still looks fairly awesome! I attribute it to good genes, staying out of the sun and Skin Authority.

Think Pink with Pattern LA

Pattern LA Signature Pink Bag PINK Tiffany Lehrman

The Chief Blonde is wearing Pattern LA Signature pink bag– Leather c/o ($250); 3/4 Sleeve denim jacket (similar); Sterling Forever bracelet ($25) and necklace ($39); Nine West Pumps (similar),  Forever 21 Skirt (similar), Made in Detroit Bog Seger Tee ($25)

Fall is settling in around here, as my deck will tell you (leaves everywhere)! I love adding a pop of bright fuschia with this Pattern LA Signature Pink bag that they sent along to us. As much as I love pink, I don’t own a pink bag…imagine. I am fairly sure that in all my 53 years I have never owned a pink bag. Well, whoot…today’s the day.

Pattern LA Signature Pink Bag PINK Tiffany Lehrman

A mid-size tote like this truly a great size, just big enough but not too big. Don’t you adore the Signature Pattern Laser cut design of this bag. It’s a logo without being a logo! The material is a soft pebble leather so this bag is like butter! I can see this bag making a lot of blog appearances!

NYC Inspired: Elie Tahari for DesigNation, Kohl’s,

[ 106 ] October 22, 2014 |

Look who’s Modeling Elie Tahari for DesigNation…Elle Tahari for DesigNation

The Chief Blonde is wearing the Elie Tahari for DesigNation NYC Skyline Fit & Flare Dress , Kohl’s($84, Sale $58), Simply Vera Vera Wang Opaque Control-Top Tights, Kohl’s ($14, Sale $10), Tiffany Atlas Collection Bracelet and Earrings, Gold and O-ring Ring (Swiss made), Glass Necklace (similar).  All Photos: R. Jolly

Kohl’s just brought out the Elie Tahari for DesigNation line. With iconic cityscape prints and a cosmopolitan color palette, the Elie Tahari for DesigNation collection captures the fresh, unabashed attitude of the city that never sleeps. They sent me along a few pieces to feature. I think you will enjoy this video where Elie Tahari discusses his design philosophy for the collection.

While this line is featured on a younger crowd in the video, I think it translates well across age groups.

Elie Tahari for DesigNation Scuba Mixed-Media Bomber Jacket ($120, Sale $84) 

I wore this outfit when I went with my 4 sister-in-laws for lunch at Buon Gusto in Brighton, MI. A lady in the restaurant came over, out of the blue, and asked me where I got my jacket. I let her try it on and she turned to her mom and said, “We’re going to Kohl’s after lunch.” Another cute story about this outfit, I asked in a facebook blogging group for a little photo help with the main photo for this post.  The blogger who helped me fix my issue, loved the dress so much she went out that night and bought it for herself!

What do you think of the the new Elie Tahari for DesigNation line?
