In a large part of the US, when the seasons change from winter to spring, most cars are covered with a thin layer of salt and packed with shovels, snow brushes and extra blankets in case of the unexpected snow storm. Even in California, while we haven’t had quite the amount of snow, there’s been a lot of rain and wind. Now that we’ve gotten a little taste of spring, it’s time to start thinking about getting your car ready for any upcoming travel. One of the best things you can do is make an appointment for a multi-point inspection to assure yourself that your car is in tiptop shape for spring and summer driving. Given the cost of airfare these days, while gas is fairly expensive in the major metro centers of San Francisco, New York and Los Angeles, most every place else, it’s less expensive. Given that road trips often do not the distance of most flights, you can cut corners by driving to see some destinations you haven’t seen at all or have not visited in quite a while. If you rent something with a kitchenette, you can cook at least 1-2 meals per day.
Even in California, there’s a lot we can see just by packing up the car and driving maybe 4-6 hours and voila, something new to see and do.

Just like the changes I am seeing in various stores and collections, I am seeing a shift in the mainstream beauty brands– thank heavens!! Bobbi Brown (and Bobbi Brown Cosmetics) has been slowly making that shift but how amazing is it that you can see Bobbi Brown talking about bold colors and not just neutrals; featuring glittery lip gloss and not just subtle shimmers.
