Who am I?

Hi!  My name is Susie, and I'm a product whore. (Sounds a bit like an introduction at a AA meeting!)  Welcome to my little corner of the web. So glad you stopped by!

I have been a licensed Esthetician working in a medical spa for over 10 years.  However my love affair with skin care started at least 10 years before I had my license.  My anti-aging quest began when I was 28 and had my very first chemical peel.  That peel changed the texture and tone of my skin.  It left my skin glowing and fresh....I was hooked!  A skin care junkie was born.

There is a lot of misleading information out there about skin care products and anti-aging treatments.  Therefore, I hope by sharing with you what I have learned and experienced first hand it will help you become more informed about your own skin.  Think of me as your personal skin care guru!

Fun facts
My best friend Kathy and I have been friends since before kindergarten.  In fact, our grandmas were best friends.  We text each other everyday!(I'm texting her as I write this page!) 
My best girl and me!

I have something chocolate everyday.....everyday!!
If there were a camera on me eating chocolate it would look something like this.

Many moons ago I lived in Japan for a year.

I love lifting weights!

I am longing to move to a warmer climate.

I really believe someday I will win the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes.  Sure, you're laughing now, but mark my words!  One day you WILL see a picture of me holding one of their giant checks!    
Insert my picture here.

I have 3 boys who are young men now but I will forever refer to them as: my oldest baby, my middle baby, and my youngest baby.

I am married to the handsomest, sweetest, coolest, smartest, funniest, and any other 'est' there is, man ever!
