Intelligent beauty and fashion for today's woman

About Us

Knowledge is Power

All facets of beauty should be about smart and educated choices. Beckie and Jamie, a mother-daughter team, are passionate about helping women navigate the Web of beauty and fashion.


Because this isn't your typical beauty blog, in addition to independent and unbiased reviews of products, you will discover weekly health and wellness articles, weekly giveaways, an economic beauty and fashion survival guide, as well as fitness tips from Jamie, a certified personal trainer.


This is brains on real beauty -- from the inside out.
