Have you met my friend Bianca? She’s the editorial director at Glam.com, and people think, I’m everywhere, well I’ve got nothing on her! (Although in all fairness I did see her pretty much everyday during New York Fashion Week).
The great part about following Miami Fashion Week for Swim is even though we’re talking about collections launching in 2014, the beauty looks are both achievable and relevant now. No surprise the big trend from Mara Hoffman to VIX Paula Hermanny to all over the runway was bronzed, luminous, pretty skin with eyes that are anything from dramatic and smokey to just a simple black pencil with light shimmer opposite big lashes and a nude lip.

That’s the overview; a healthy, well-balanced lifestyle and skincare regimin will do wonders for your skin. However, most of us don’t know what we’re looking for; so here are some common signs that your skin needs rescuing:

Coffee extraordinaires, Green Mountain Coffee recently launched Café Escapes, an indulgent line of sweet coffee alternatives that conveniently fits in their signature Keurig machine. Last night, I joined the brand and GLAM for a private tasting and sampled each of their delicious flavors, including Cafe Caramel, Cafe Vanilla, Dark Chocolate Hot Cocoa, Milk Chocolate Hot Cocoa, Chai Latte and Cafe Mocha.
