Recently, I had the chance to visit the Sisley Spa in the Carlyle Hotel in midtown Manhattan to try out their Brightening Facial. Little did I know, that it was going to be the most relaxing hour and a half that I've had all year.
Earlier this week I had the pleasure of attending a media launch party for Deepak Chopra and Kimberly Snyder's new book, Radical Beauty. As an avid follower of both, the spiritual leader and nutritionist, I was excited to hear what they had to say and cannot get enough of the book. It's by far the most scientifically comprehensive beauty book that's landed on my desk (and trust me, I've seen a ton). Here, Kimberly dishes on her inspiration behind the book, food diary and finding balance.
What started as a 10-minute spot on QVC has landed its rightful place as a leading brand in the cosmetics industry. IT Cosmetics is on fire and to prove this it has recently been purchased by L'Oreal for 1.2 million dollars. They're bringing a brand new, legendary collection to Sephora called Color Infused Skincare. Here's a peek into the line and some of our favorites.
As someone who's always trying to see the world through a compassionate, optimistic lens, I'm excited to start a new series showcasing random acts of kindness featuring heart warming stories that show the love and kindness in the world. I don't know about you, but I despise watching the news. The mainstream media typically likes to exaggerate and exhaust any story that showcases sadness, violence and horror just to get people to tune in for ratings. It's sickening. Living in a world of terror, it's important to remember, that we're also still living in a world of love. I invite you, my readers, to also submit your random acts of kindness stories via email as I'd love to spread the word!
Whenever Joe and I attend a party, I always bring guac. One, because it's healthy and two, because it's the only app I know how to make. I've been playing with different recipes and used to blend it in my Ninja, but have been smashing it instead and like the consistency better. Here's my super healthy guac recipe. Enjoy!
On a recent trip to Italy with Joe, we encountered something that I had to talk about. Of course, I planned on coming home to write a blog post on my travel beauty must-haves (like this one), but never imagined witnessing something that affected me so deeply I haven't stopped thinking about it. It's not sitting well with me, and while I can't do much about the situation, I can raise awareness and try. So here you go...
