Just Another Day at the Office


A week or two ago, I was standing with two co-workers hotly debating some of the intricacies of healthcare reform.  Specifically, pharmacy benefit management.

Hot, right?

We came to a standstill in our conversation and one co-worker blurted out, "You have the most beautiful skin."

And I think I turned about eight shades of purple as my second co-worker agreed with her.

I'm not trying to brag, but the word "radiant" came up.  Oh, and "peaches and cream complexion."

Now, in an office where I desperately strive to over come the fact that I am not yet 30 (ugh!) and want people to take me seriously when I am talking Part D formularies (policy wonks, you feel me.), I was at a loss for words.

So, the first thing I thought of was to tell them that I was trying the new Olay Professional Pro-X skin care line.

The kit comes with the Age Repair Lotion with SPF 30, the Eye Restoration Complex, and the Wrinkle Smoothing Cream for nighttime.

The lotion is nice and light, and who doesn't love a little SPF?  The eye cream is nice, but I overdid it the first few weeks by putting it on both morning and night.  

Hey, I've never used an eye cream before!  I'm not even 30!  Cut me some beauty slack!

I can't say that I love the night cream, but the rest is pretty sweet.

So, I guess if you plan on erasing some of the stress lines caused by the call to finish a massive healthcare reform by the end of the year (what now?) get yourself some anti-aging goo!

When I turned 30 (3 kids, 2 dogs and a jumbo mortgage ago) my mother said, "Happy Birthday," and handed me some eye cream. Nowadays I'm all about the "40 is the new 30," and off tomorrow to get some ProX. Savor every compliment. Your first "Ma'am" comes way too soon.

I've been eyeing (hehe eyeing) the Olay ProX for a while, but I've always been a little skeeved out by the original "Olay cream" smell from days of yore. Does the ProX formulation have the classic Olay scent?

When it comes to metallic high heels, Christian Louboutin Flatsmany women only think of evening shoes. It's understandable, given that gold, silver, pewter, and bronze are all great choices for making an entrance at a more formal event. But, if you love metallic shoes and tend to save Jimmy Choo Shoesthem only for special occasions, then you may want to rethink your strategy: metallic high heel sandalsJimmy Choo Boots can work as well for day wear as they do for evenings. Of course, there are some caveats. For one thing, evening shoes are still evening shoes -- too glamorous, and they'll be out of place for most daylight events. Save those red-carpet-type picks for real special occasions. On the other hand, if you come across a pairJimmy Choo Pumps of high heel sandals that, in any other color, you'd wear with your favorite shorts, jeans, skirts or dresses, and those shoes happen to be offered in metallic finishes, then don't shy away from them.
