Lifestyle & Fashion Guide No 5

Dolls!  Who knew we had a celebrity-status beauty guru right here in Virginia?! 

Today on the Lifestyle & Fashion Guide on CBS6 Virginia This Morning, I introduced Toks Ajayi, the hard working woman behind Skôt Beauté.  Her organic skin and lip care products have been featured in Glamour, Vogue, and Brides, and she has a heart of gold.  

When I met Toks, I was immediately drawn to her upbeat spirit and her desire for women of all ages to look and feel beautiful.  

“We believe in celebrating natural beauty and that each and every woman should love, love, love the skin they’re in and embrace their individual uniqueness,” Toks says.  She believes a good skincare routine will yield a natural, beautiful healthy glow that will boost anyone’s confidence, regardless of their age. 

Skôt Beauté focuses on skin care and lip care. Did you notice my lip color during the show?  I’m wearing one of their gorgeous lip care products in PINK BLUSH, and I’m obsessed!  If you missed the episode this morning, check it out below!

My other faves from Skôt Beauté?  A Hydrating Mist — it’s a must-have when I travel!  This mist from Skôt Beauté can be used as a toner to remove impurities after cleansing or simply to reenergize, moisten, or rehydrate the skin for a velvety smooth feel.

Green Market at Stonefield

Okay, before we talk about some incredible fashion infused events happening THIS weekend (and where you can find me around RVA!) I am so excited to introduce an exciting event taking place in Charlottesville, VA at The Shops At Stonefield...

The Green Market at Stonefield is much more than your average farmer's market —  it’s a luxury farmer’s market!

Starting in May on Thursdays and Saturdays, dozens of local vendors will be selling everything from seasonal fruits, veggies, and herbs to beautiful fresh-cut flowers and potted plants, homemade breads and pastries, and even handcrafted items by local artists.

Along with incredible community partners like: Country Club Prep + Townsend Landscape, Stonefield Green Market will prove to be the best market for area chefs in search of quality produce, families with children looking for an eventful outing, and health-conscious individuals stocking up on weekly provisions!
