I recently became familiar with the work of Sophia Gushee and instantly wanted to know more about her. As a healthy living expert, she helps people detox their homes! Cool, right? In her new book, The A to Z of D-Toxing, she proves that a healthy lifestyle goes beyond eating right and exercising. Here, she talks detoxing steps, her favorite clean beauty buys and how toxic exposure in the home can lead to hormone disruption.
Last week I was in LA for work and a little play and couldn't have felt more alive. I just love it out there. I was so happy about the gig I was working on, so happy to take a break with Joe and so incredibly happy to be in the sunshine. And now, back to the grind in NYC. Reality sets in. I once read that there's a formula to our happiness by Deepak Chopra, MD. Here's how it works.
Recently, I had the privilege of attending a makeup master class hosted by Colgate Optic White with Celebrity Makeup Artist, Mario Dedivanovic. Mario's most notable clientele includes Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, Katy Perry, Priyanka Chopra, Chrissy Teigan and Christina Aguilera to name a few. Mario disclosed a few of his favorite makeup tips and demoed looks to mirror some of this year's Oscar faves. Inspired by the master class, here are some new beauty tips and tricks.
There's something to be said when I've had a staple in my medicine cabinet for about 10 years. That's right, despite the fact that I try and test everything (especially if it promises to get rid of pimples), I always revert back to this one product – Mario Badescu Drying Lotion. I'm sure if you haven't already fallen in love with it yourself, you know someone who has. As the brand celebrates 50 years in business, I felt it was proper to pay tribute to the one product I can't live without.
Last week I was out in LA shooting a campaign and was fortunate enough to have a glam squad that were not only talented, but also truly understood who I was and it was beyond refreshing. As soon as I walked into the trailer for hair and makeup, they both asked about my likes and dislikes and really listened in order to create my look. For the record – likes include bangs, texture and clean makeup; dislikes are slick hair and anything pink on my face). It was a fitness inspired shoot so a texturized pony and minimal makeup were brought to life and I couldn't have felt any more like myself, which is important when doing spokesperson work.
