Duped: Strapping Suede

This is another one of those ‘champagne taste on a beer budget’ situations where we desperately want the Gianvito Rossi Janis Suede Sandals but we also do not want to eat Trader Joe’s split pea soup for the foreseeable future. Lucky for us, our pals over at Gap heard our plea and created the beautiful suede sandal you […]

Facial Massage 101

You may be wondering-What is facial massage? Is it necessary? Where does one go to get a facial massage? I’m just a spring chicken, do I really need to be doing this? The answers to which were all answered at the CAP beauty event I attended on the very subject. Kerry and I are no […]

Teddy Up

Now that freezing temperatures are officially here to stay, I’m taking a note from one of my favorite style icons, Carine Roitfeld. Carine’s outerwear game is the best in the business, bar none. One particular style she sported has been piquing my interest as of late: teddy wear. Not to be confused with the polar opposite […]

How The Sun Sees You

My friends know me all too well-sending an email with the subject “what happens to your face when you wear sunscreen might shock you” was sure to hook me. I promptly watched the video attached and forwarded it along. It is an eye-opening reminder to thoroughly cover up during these last few weeks of summer {as well as […]

PSA: Jules Smith Americana Choker

Consider this your public shopping announcement – we thought why share these deals with each other and not let you guys in on the fun? In the first of hopefully many we present to you: this gem of a choker necklace. We’ve had our eyes on them and admired many but we were waiting for the price […]

Make It Count

About two months ago I was perusing Instagram and came across an invitation for a conversation being hosted by some consultants of BEAUTYCOUNTER at a store in NYC. I recalled seeing the name as well as gold embossed bottles numbered 1, 2, and 3 popping up around the green beauty blog circuit and visited the website. The three pillars that stuck out to […]

Beauty Wellness Wisdom: Part II

The second half of the Beauty Wellness Wisdom event was a melange of tips and treatments from some of the leaders in the holistic beauty industry. I caught some of these visionary entrepreneurs speaking in the second session and spent the remainder of the afternoon doing what I do best…learning about products. First to speak […]

Beauty Wellness Wisdom: Part I

A few weeks ago I attended Beauty, Wellness, Wisdom held at ABC Home. It was a day-long event celebrating holistic beauty, health, well-being, wisdom, and wonder. The morning opened with Lodro Rinzler, author of Walk Like a Buddha, leading us in how to set our intention for the day. This was different from the typical goal-setting […]

Spring Cleaning

“Your health means everything,” those words staring at me were a nice little reminder as I rode the subway to work one morning. It is something I often lose sight of when I’m stressing out over trivial things like beach cover-ups or what methods I need to make my skin have a flawless glow. In the past, I’ve read about […]

Carpe Dosha

“This is great for my Dosha!” I proclaimed as my friends muddled blueberries into the potion they were making for me on a recent Friday night. It was a phrase I continued to abuse throughout my entire weekend visit to DC. After a series of side stares and eye rolls my friends decided to finally […]
