Gearing up for ‘snow-pocalypse’

Gearing up for ‘snow-pocalypse’

Yesterday, Washington, DC saw a high of 37 degrees. It’s only early December so I can imagine what the rest of the winter has in store. Today I wore two scarves to work in order to bear the cold weather. Jackie suggested that I buy a parka, or some may call a puffy coat. She suggested I try Macy’s and I found a really cute Nine West jacket that I like (shown below). So, maybe I’ll pick up one before “snow-pocalypse” happens again. If you have a great winter coat, let me know where you bought it. Comments are welcome! Thanks people

Testing One of the Latest, Greatest Innovations in Skincare Technology: The Vi Peel

Last week, I met with Dr. Peter Klainer, a board certified plastic surgeon with one primary goal: providing top-of-the-line patient care that produces stunning results.

Based in Sterling, Virginia, Dr. Klainer founded Chrysalis Plastic Surgery in 2000. He is the son of a doctor who specialized in infectious diseases and ultimately served in the military. Dr. Klainer graduated from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York City. Thereafter, he completed his residency in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at St. Louis University, as well as a Fellowship in Aesthetic Surgery in Indianapolis.

I confess that, at first, I thought I'd come across a little known Northern Virginia secret, but I soon realized my error. Indeed, Dr. Klainer has been performing injections since 1997, and he was voted one of "America's Top Surgeons" by the Consumer's Research Council.
