Patti Plantier’s Best Motherhood Lessons—What I’ve Learned from My Mom

If you’ve met my mom, Patti, chances are you get the idea that my brother and I were born with a pretty sensational model for parenthood. She was not only a generous, caring mother to the two of us, but she also provided a blueprint for being a dedicated and hard worker, for giving our best effort to our careers, and for loving our family and friends with every fiber of our being.

Brotox is All Right With Me

Looking Up to the Women in My Life

Looking Up to the Women in My Life

I noticed something as I was scrolling through social media last week: The women in my life are killing it right now. I’d zip through my feed or poke through Instagram, and I’d see dozens of pictures and posts, all adding up to the fact that so many of my female family members, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and clients are lighting it up.

They’re going out and getting it done.

What’s In Your Bag?

IV vitamin drips deliver minerals, amino acids, and (of course) vitamins to the body in the most direct method, avoiding the gut and, therefore, the digestive system altogether. It allows medical providers to deliver larger doses of nutrients that aren’t tolerated orally. That’s why we decided to offer IV vitamin treatments at Glo Derma—because we understand that the benefits are so widespread and allow us to be proactive about keeping ourselves healthy, improving mood, decreasing stress and anxiety, and promoting our overall wellness.

Reclaiming Our Confidence in 2017

Reclaiming Our Confidence in 2017

Working in aesthetics and helping so many people achieve the look they want has taught me one thing for sure. We are all plagued by insecurities, even the most “beautiful” among us. Even if our skin is pristine and our stomachs are flat and our hair is thick and shiny, there’s a little voice in our heads that tells us something else doesn’t quite measure up.
