Sports Research Sweet Sweat: Feel the Burn

My spin class is no joke. Serious riders are kicking serious ass. When I feel like dialing back I look at the girls with the tight ass bums and flat tummies, and I bear down and keep pushing (always take one of the bikes in the back of the room). I found out a slim-down […]

Julep Reveal Nail Growth Revitalizing Serum: Long and Strong

I have the world’s strongest nails. I’ve even used them as a screwdriver to open battery compartments on my son’s toys. It’s a blessing and a curse, though. They grow faster than weeds. I know I shouldn’t complain, but if I don’t get manicures every week and half, they grow so much that you see […]

Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv Eye Cream: Just in the Neck of Time

A good eye cream is one of the most important anti-aging essentials – that and sunscreen! The skin around our eyes is very delicate and requires extra special attention, so Estee Lauder’s Re-Nutriv Replenishing Comfort eye cream is a staple in my beauty regime. It uses an Omega3 Phyto Complex (sounds intense, but it’s derived […]

Yes, you can use Bumble and Bumble’s Color Minded polish as a heat protectant when styling, but I have a better use for it. While your hair is air drying, slick a little of this serum on the ends. Then pull down on them to make the hair really silky and sleek. It’s like the […]

Travel Snob Essentials: Fly Girl

I’m on a plane almost weekly, and there are a few essential products that I always bring with me. On long haul trips to Europe or Asia, I don’t wear any makeup. Why clog your pores when the people around you are probably sleeping anyway? In spite of its deceptively appropriate shape, the aisle in a plane is not a runway…

Best Hair Trends of 2012: Fair-Haired

The High Bun: You can take this look in many directions – ballerina bun, futuristic (like how Olivia Wilde styled hers – with a large choker), etc. But it’s always very feminine and classy. Just remember not to tie it up messy, or else you’ll look like you have a huge nest resting on your […]

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream: First Line of Defense

Sometimes basic moisturizers are just not enough. Our skin is an organ, so it can require more TLC that we normally remember to give it. I have a friend who couldn’t get rid of a rough patch on her forehead for almost 6 months. She tried out at least half a dozen moisturizers before she […]

Pink Lipstick Trend: I’m a Barbie Girl

Kristen Stewart has been coming out in full-force on the red carpet lately wearing a lot of sheer, sexy pieces, and her newest sheer style is Barbie pink lipstick. For her On the Road premiere, the starlet went sexy ‘60s with cat-eyes and Chanel’s Rouge Coco lipshine in parfait (at Neiman Marcus for $32.50). This […]
