This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

Fitness Glam

May, 19, 2015

Fitness instructor Caroline Wagner is a gym goddess. When she pulls out her mat and strikes a yoga pose heads snap. It’s no wonder that she has appeared on NBC and in several commercials for her fitness expertise. This alone is impressive, but what astonishes me is that her face always looks red-carpet ready—even at the end of a long work day starting at 5 am and ending at 8 pm! That was the case when we took this picture. So what’s Caroline’s beauty regimen?

“I exfoliate and wash my face with a Clarisonic Mia 2,” she confided. This is followed by Lancôme moisturizer and mascara. Lancôme features a variety of moisturizers for a variety of skin types. Like Caroline, I’ve relied on it, particularly when traveling for work between places with wildly varying weather conditions. And I love that their moisturizers are hydrating without feeling heavy—meaning that they’re ideal for putting on and running off to the gym. Tomorrow, Caroline and I are bringing you a yoga series that can be done at home – or if you’re traveling, in a hotel – whenever you want to squeeze in a workout.

Of course, the ideal is to have Caroline’s expertise in person and all to yourself. If you’re lucky enough to live in the Seattle area, you can reach her at for private yoga instruction and personal training.
