I love the sexy beach waves that off-duty models always seem to be sporting. Is it because they’re coming from a job where some genius hairdresser carefully crafted the look? Do they live on the beach?? I’ve been trying for years to learn the secret, only to realize that the appearance of effortlessness actually requires a pretty serious effort
With so many chic women cutting their hair into pixies or bobs, the desire to chop off our locks is stronger than ever. But when I cut my waist length hair into a straight bob on whim in my twenties (I cried for hours!), I vowed to never go that short again. My hair now falls a few inches below my shoulders, and tempted though I may be for a quick change, I’m not willing to make the cut again.

There are a lot of crazy mythical cures out there, and oil pulling sounds like one of them. But it does in fact have its merits and benefits. It is an ancient practice, ancient as in it was written about in Ayurvedic books thousands of years ago. So why are we only hearing about this now?
Legend has it that Cleopatra bathed in milk and honey…if it was good enough for Cleopatra, reason dictates that there must be some fantastic beauty benefits to honey. Honey, in fact, is a natural humectant meaning it draws water to the skin so it’s awesome this time of year when skin tends to be dry.
When it comes to applying eye makeup, we might choose a color based on our skin tone or hair color, and we might try to contour the shadow to flatter, but have you ever done makeup thinking about the shape of your eyes? Just like we dress for our body types, we should contour for our eye types!
When I was in Thailand I had my first experiences with dry brushing at a spa. I was told it would help not only exfoliate, but stimulate circulation. Makes sense! That’s why I use “rough” scrubs on my body. In speaking with my therapist, however, she also said it was one of the most effective ways to fight cellulite.
