Who would you like to hear speak?
For those who are unaware, I serve as Programming Chair for Fashion Group International, Seattle. This year, my idea to launch an Executives in Fashion Series came to life; bringing our members and non-members up close and personal with some of the most prestigious CEO's and VP's of Seattle-based fashion and retail companies. The series kicked off last week with Blue Nile CEO Harvey Kanter and will resume on May 21st with Julep CEO Jane Park.

When my dear friend Luba showed me her latest blog post on makeup brushes, I thought it had been a few years since I did a makeup post myself. Here are some of the products that I keep in my Henri Bendel makeup case at all times.

The same brightening lightweight concealer now in new shades and a clear tube so you know just how much is left before you run out. Features a doe-foot applicator for more precise application and controlled delivery under the eye. Instantly brightens shadows so you look refreshed and revived - perfect for touch-ups, too.

Mason Pearson Brush
As any stylist worth his or her salt will tell you, Mason Pearson brushes are the ultimate grooming tools. The patented pneumatic cushion conforms to the contours of the scalp, while the nylon and boar bristles glide smoothly through your locks, distributing natural oils, exfoliating the scalp and stimulating circulation. The result is gleaming, naturally conditioned, more manageable hair. All Mason Pearson brushes are handcrafted in England, using the same time-honored techniques established over 125 years ago.

Thanks to my dear friend Zac, I had the opportunity to watch the NFC Championship game between the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers in the Virginia Mason Medical Center suite.
