Augusta recommends the POND'S Clean Sweep Original Clean Wet Cleansing Towelettes. She adds that they are also great for removing the festival and fair face paint from your kid's faces. 
Brooke recommends Maybelline Fit Me Foundation. She writes..."My favorite item...and I have a one that I found by accident. One day a while back, I had to go to dinner that evening and I was out of foundation with no time to run to Sephora, so I went to CVS and pi…

A Condominium Update

My client, Sydney, recently purchased her first home. Look at the fabulous transformation she has made with  a little paint, furniture and artwork. It really shows what staging can do!
