In-Flight Hydration Arsenal: Reaching High Altitudes of Moisture

I have been non stop traveling since this year started. From Florence to Las Vegas to New York to Florida (and next month Cancun!), saying that my skin and everything else for that matter, is dehydrated is an understatement. I am completely tapped out!  While on a flight, I drink water like crazy, but I … Continue reading In-Flight Hydration Arsenal: Reaching High Altitudes of Moisture

Macadamia Healing Oil Spray: I’m Nuts For It

It’s the battle of the hair oils: Tina is loving her Moroccanoil, but my oil of choice comes from the macadamia nut. While the nuts themselves are high in fat, macadamia oil is the new “healthy” oil – for eating, that is. It has less saturated fat than olive oil, but it is much harder … Continue reading Macadamia Healing Oil Spray: I’m Nuts For It

Eye Cream vs. Moisturizer: Renée’s Keeping an Eye Out for Us

When I got back from Florence, my skin was so dehydrated I decided to “treat it” with eye cream all over my face. Little did I know, this is a big no-no.

Face by Bobbi Brown: A Good Kind of New Year’s Drama

Participating in Bobbi Brown’s Pretty Powerful campaign was such an incredible experience! I was featured on Bobbi’s site, but I had no idea she put me on her brochure for “Dramatic” makeup tips! I walked into her office last month and there I was, on her inspiration board. She told me she looks at me … Continue reading Face by Bobbi Brown: A Good Kind of New Year’s Drama

TRESemme FreshStart Dry Shampoo

As much as I would like to have two hours to get ready before I go out, the reality is I have about 30 minutes on a good day. So with few precious minutes, hair washing is out of the question. At the risk of sounding gross, yes, I do sometimes leave the house with … Continue reading TRESemme FreshStart Dry Shampoo

Talika Takes Care of My Lashes: Back to Nature

As much as I love my mink lashes, I don’t think I will do it again. They are starting to shed (a normal process for lashes) and I am worried my lashes are going to be damaged when this is all over. I decided to start on a lash-conditioning regime as recommended by Talika for … Continue reading Talika Takes Care of My Lashes: Back to Nature

Bodycomfort Trance Head Massager: A Real Head Case

Did I mention I am easily bullied into buying things? I’m still scarred by the Oro Gold debacle, but Black Friday proved not to be a complete bomb. It’s all thanks to three French guys at a kiosk in Century City Shopping Center who convinced me I could not live another day without a “trance” … Continue reading Bodycomfort Trance Head Massager: A Real Head Case
