Kérastase launched a few new products recently, and one of them is a pre-shampoo – more or less the last product I’d ever think I’d become obsessed with. Who has time for a pre-shampoo, I thought to myself?? It sounds annoying and useless, but it’s far from it.
We always hear about dry shampoo, but Serge Normant is the first luxury brand (at least that I’ve come across) to come out with both a dry shampoo AND a dry conditioner. It’s basically one of those products you never knew you needed, and then once you have it you wonder how you ever lived without it.
There is only one thing to do when it’s freezing cold outside for days on end…go blonder! Well, that and book a trip to Miami, but that isn’t always feasible so a few weeks ago I went to Oscar Blandi to get my highlights touched up and brightened. Amy did an amazing job, and I also had the chance to meet Gina Guercia, a very well-known editorial stylist who heads up the brand’s product development.
I have anxiety issues leaving my Chelsea gym because it’s located within arm’s length of where about 1,000,000,000 people I know work. There is not one day – no matter how cold, rainy, or snowy it is – that I don’t leave that gym wearing sunglasses. Why? Because for me to look presentable it takes a good 30 minutes, and I don’t feel like fighting for the blow driers and counter space at my gym…
Ahh the lengths we go to for a perfect head of curls! While my girlfriends with naturally curly hair spend a fortune straightening it, I prefer to do the opposite, testing out curler after curler in the hopes of finding one that will give me gorgeous waves. Here’s what I discovered in my search…
With a name like The Gnarly Whale you know this brand has to be eco-friendly and vegan…am I right!? And I don’t mean that in a bad way…am totally loving the name and the fact that the brand focuses on using as few ingredients as possible in their all-natural bath and body line-up.
Girl got style! I had the chance to see supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio up close backstage at the Victoria’s Secret taping a few weeks ago and wow…legs for days!! But what really caught my eye was how effortlessly she carried herself. You can see it in the above image where she looks casual, but undeniably sexy AT THE AIRPORT!
Half pony, half updo…I’m going to call this the pony-do! The hairstyle is the perfect blend of fun and formal. You’d be as likely to see it on the street as you would on the runway, making it a lifesaver on days when you’re rushing between work, home, and an evening event.
