About Us

This blog is about how the world is viewed by the visual and the visually impaired. The intent of this blog is to bring the two worlds together. It is administered by two fabulous sisters, Toni, who is sighted and Robin, who became visually impaired in 2002 at the age of 18 due to misdiagnosis.

Yesterday we went to the oh so fabulous MAC Cosmetics counter to try out the new spring colors. All I can say is DELISH ladies!!! Purples, pinks, golds so many choices...which do I choose!!! Luckily my makeup guy knows his stuff and can always point me into the right direction as to which color compliments my skin and knows exactly what I will and will not wear...Robin has her favorite guy that she goes to as well. I decided to try the purples, Robin stuck to the neutrals. Robin has great resources to help her stay divalicious...me of course (smile), her makeup guy at MAC...he tells her what looks good on her and explains how to apply the makeup in a very detailed and descriptive manner, and her hair stylist who keeps her hair tight and brows tamed (thank goodness! You've heard about the eyebrow incident...Robin tried to arched them herself! Good thing they grew back!) Blind/visually impaired individuals are no different than the sighted, just because they can't see doesn't mean that they do not care about their appearance. Robin and I had a discussion about this and she said if she had not been previously sighted or had people to ask about fashion/style how would she know what to was in style or what looked good? She said that there is nothing out there that helps. My suggestions would be if you are blind/visually impaired ask some of your sighted friends who have the same taste as you or know you pretty well to know what you will or will not wear, or go to an image consultant who specializes in looking at the shape of your face to let you know what hairstyles look good on you; what colors compliment your skin tone and what clothes work best with your lifestyle. Image consultants can be a benefit to everyone, sighted or not, and can work with every budget. Joy Love of Joy Love's Hair and Image Studio Inc. is FABULOUS!!!! Check her page out on Facebook.
Until next time....stay beautiful!
