Dangene Skincare Program: Three’s Company

I’ve always adhered to a 7-10 step skincare routine, but now I’ve found a way to get by on just 3! For a recent two-day trip to NYC, I wanted only carry-on products.

Mesmerizing performance aside, I was fixated on one of the props on stage: an opulent vanity trunk that opens […]

Jessica Alba: Have Color Will Travel

Jessica Alba was at Charles de Gaulle airport recently looking airport-chic as usual with a teal Sportmax coat, skinny jeans, Rag and Bone booties and a purple Jimmy Choo Crossbody bag. This bag is the perfect go-anywhere/stash anything bag for travelling or even everyday use. With pebbled leather and an always convenient crossbody, you have […]
