Happy National Hydration Day!

Today is national hydration day, which means it’s time to hydrate yourself from head to toe. While hydration may start on the inside, it’s important to hydrate externally too – and now you can with these essentials! 

Burt's Bees Complete Nourishment Facial Oil

This powerful blend of some of nature’s most powerful oils and extracts work to moisturize all-day, nourish and rebalance the skin, and help fight the signs of premature aging. The fast-absorbing, lightweight formula cares for skin with moisture-rich Jojoba Oil, high in essential fatty acids, as well as antioxidant-rich Evening Primrose Oil, known for its hydrating properties. 


This hydrating combo replenishes moisture, repairs damage, reduces breakage and helps restore hair’s natural protective coating. When paired together these products work to detangle, improve elasticity and manageability of hair with lactic acid and conditioning cetrimonium chloride. 

Senteurs d’Orient Almond Bath Soap 

Handcrafted and inspired by the calming scents of the Middle East and South Asia. The pure almond ‘rough cut’ bath bar is infused with grains of crushed raw Oats and Wheat that exfoliates, while Shea Butter, Glycerin and Olive Oil deeply moisturize. 

Goldwell Kerasilk Restorative Balm  

Formulated with Keratin, lightweight silk and the protective skincare ingredient Hyaloveil™, this 
nourishing, healing balm improves hair elasticity while also protecting it from breakage, dryness and other common forms of damage. Apply to either towel-dried or dry hair, and leave in.

“Meet Cathleen” - First Film Released from Dove & Shonda Rhimes Inspired by Body-Positive Dancer

I am awestruck and inspired by the talent and confidence of this amazing woman - Cathleen Meredith.  Dove & Shonda Rhimes have released the first film today titled “Meet Cathleen.”

The film follows Cathleen Meredith on her journey to realizing her own beauty through her love of dance. Cathleen has hopes of encouraging women to take on challenges and be fearless to find self-love and real beauty through the celebration of their passions. Her experience powerfully brings to light an inspiring message for all women – you know real beauty when you see it for yourself. Through her body-positive modern dance movement, Fat Girls Dance, Cathleen has found a renewed confidence in watching herself perform fearlessly and fell in love with her body and beauty with every move.  – and through the process, unknowingly encouraging others watching to do the same.

The three-minute film was produced by an all-female crew (including award-winning documentary filmmaker Liz Garbus who was selected by Shonda and Dove to lead the project). Together with these women, Shonda and Dove put power of storytelling directly into the hands of real women and girls to truly represent who they are as beautiful and confident individuals.

Celebrate World Fair Trade Day - May 13th

In today's consumer driven society, it is easy to lose sight of responsible buying practices, and this important day serves to remind conscious consumers that with fair trade, the money spent on day-to-day goods can improve an entire community's day-to-day lives.
Why buy Fair Trade?

  • Helps farmers and factory workers in 30 countries work in safe conditions, earn extra money to invest in their communities and improve the lives of their families;
  • Creates jobs in the developing world;
  • Ensures that children are not forced into labor;
  • Gives women an opportunity for independence, and a way out of an abusive or unsafe environment.

This is where the first Fair Trade organization in North America, Ten Thousand Villages steps in. A non-profit retail organization, Ten Thousand Villages operates with the mission to create income-earning opportunities for artisans in developing countries by establishing a sustainable market for handmade products in North America.

By building long-term buying relationships in places where skilled artisan partners lack opportunities for stable income, Ten Thousand Villages provides artisans with opportunities to pay for food, education, healthcare, housing and more. Since its founding in 1946, the company has worked with makers who would otherwise be unemployed or underemployed to earn $140 million in sustainable income.

Check out a few of our favorite handmade items from the artisans at Ten Thousand Villages:

Sally Hansen x Madeline Poole May Trend: Negative Space

When it comes to nail trends, Sally Hansen Global Color Ambassador Madeline Poole is the expert on what's hot. This season, she reports that Negative Space is the trendiest and easiest nail art look you can create at home with Sally Hansen nail polish. 

"Fashion week Spring 2017 saw tons of nails in this style on the runway" reported Madeline, "such was the case at Proenza Schoeler and Vera Wang." Negative Space design makes a feature of empty space and asymmetry, something seen not only on nails this season, but also in the collections of designers like Christopher Kane, who showed sheer paneled negative space dresses.

The Negative Space trend is simple to create yourself. All you need is a regular bobby pin, Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in Creme de la Creme and Miracle Gel Top Coat. The #1 no light gel system, Miracle Gel will make your nails on-trend for up to 14 days of color and shine. See below for an easy step-by-step! 

Step 1: Starting with clean nails, apply the "Negative Space" design with Miracle Gel in Creme de la Creme to your nails using the bobby pin. 

Step 2: Apply a coat of Miracle Gel Top Coat to seal your mani. It's that easy!

Spring Clean Your Look with T-fal's Steam Iron

We are well into Spring my dears, (even if temps don't quite feel like it yet), and I have taken advantage of a handful of rainy days to tackle that pesky spring cleaning. And now that the house is looking clutter-free and totally fantastic, it is time to take it to the next level and refresh my wardrobe!

This season I have invested in quite a few crisp linen and summer-weight cottons, which under normal circumstances might be cause for concern. I mean seriously, rumpled and crumpled is not a good look for any fashionista. Which is where my new  T-fal PowerGlide Steam Iron comes to the rescue! It removes stubborn wrinkles with ease, and its two layer T-fal Durilium Ceramic Technology Coating outperforms competition in "glidability."

I love how the wrinkles just disappear with a single swipe! The iron has enough heft to deftly press out wrinkles but is lightweight enough to make the task of ironing a breeze. With a first-of-its-kind calc collector, the iron removes hard water deposits and ensures elite performance and lasting quality. And bonus!! This unique steam iron is also a 2-in-1 product, allowing for vertical steaming for hanging drapes and delicate garments! Definitely a great investment for keeping my wardrobe fresh and fabulous!

April is Rosacea Awareness Month!

DID YOU KNOW? The National Rosacea Society (NRS) reports that at least 16 million Americans currently suffer from rosacea, and that 95% of those sufferers have little to no knowledge about the condition’s signs or symptoms before being diagnosed. 

THE CHALLENGE: While rosacea is a common condition, it’s typically tough to treat because it causes a number of different symptoms, many of which are addressed separately. In fact, according to a recent NRS survey, nearly 80% of rosacea patients claim they have to use more than one medication to manage their condition. 

THE SOLUTION: New from ZO® Skin Health, Inc., ZO® Medical Rozatrol™ is a breakthrough, multi-modal method of action for treating, preventing, and stabilizing the visible symptoms associated with rosacea – all in one tube. 

WHY IT’S DIFFERENT: ZO® Medical Rozatrol™ simultaneously attacks the five key symptoms of rosacea – inflammation, decreased cellular renewal, excess oil, vascular degeneration (the appearance of blood vessels on the skin), and neuro-aging. It features an advanced, patent-pending complex of technologies and ingredients that are specially designed to address each these major symptoms:
Inflammation: ZO® Medical Rozatrol’s™ Inflammation Modulation Complex helps reduce visible signs of redness, allow cells to resume their normal proliferation, aid in the reduction of skin sensitivity, help restore the skin barrier function, and deliver defense against UV-induced inflammation.
Decreased cellular renewal: ZO® Medical Rozatrol’s™ formula contains an innovative, ultra-mild Enzymatic Exfoliator, which gently exfoliates dry skin to reduce redness and trigger cell renewal and alleviate the appearance of papules and pustules, thickened skin and localized areas of pigmentation.
Excess Oil: Skin is normalized by ZO® Medical Rozatrol’s™ Triple Blend Sebum Controller, which not only reduces oil production but also contains antibacterial properties that limit the microorganism activity that can lead to inflammation.
Vascular degeneration: New blood vessels are formed as a result of potent amino acids, which also help skin combat moisture loss and promote microcirculation to even skin tone and restore a radiant complexion.
Neuro-aging: Hydrolyzed algin, a soothing and restorative compound derived from algae, which reenergizes derma cells, restores and stabilizes normal cellular regeneration to improve skin texture, and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

ZO® Medical Rozatrol’s™ multi-targeted complex addresses all of the irritating, unsightly, and uncomfortable symptoms of rosacea directly and effectively, so you can finally have the problem-free complexion you’ve dreamed of, without having to manage multiple treatments.

Founded by world-renowned dermatologist and skincare expert Dr. Zein Obagi, ZO® Skin Health harnesses the latest skincare science to deliver at-home products with in-office strength. Widely recognized as the founder of the science of skin health, Dr. Obagi is a leader in the field of dermatology, and has led the industry with innovative treatments designed to create and maintain healthy skin. His line of solution-focused products has helped clients around the country achieve healthy, flawless skin, and is a top choice of physicians and dermatologists nationwide. 

WHERE TO GET IT: Available in January 2017 for $88 at and through physicians and dermatologists worldwide.

-          After shampooing, apply the Sheer Blonde Brilliantly Brighter Blonde Perfecting Treatment to revitalize and harmonize your blonde, adding an overlay of stunning shimmer that moves naturally in the light. Apply first to the underside sections of the hair, followed by the top and back sections. Then add one all-over, full coat to the hair. Wait five minutes, then rinse thoroughly. Wash hands after use and allow three washes between each treatment.
-          Finally, apply Sheer Blonde Brilliantly Brighter Ultra Illuminating Conditioner. This weightless conditioner will moisturize, nourish and smooth hair, while leaving behind the shimmery, pearlescent finish.

Celebrate International Women's Day

Celebrate International Women's Day with the latest trends created by entrepreneurial, inspiring women.

Lavanila Laboratories, founded by Danielle Raynor is a pioneer in naturals. Made from the purest, natural and organic ingredients and completely free of harsh chemicals, they are committed to breakthrough products that deliver beautiful, long-lasting results. Danielle started Lavanila because she believed in a new generation of healthy beauty products that were better, safer and smarter. As a mother with two small children, she wanted products made from skin-loving, vitamin rich ingredients and products free of harsh, potentially toxic chemicals that seemed dangerous to the body and the planet.

Cuvee Beauty, founded by Rachel Katzman is a haircare line that offers six high-performance, unisex haircare essentials – from shampoo and conditioner to styling balm and the signature Champagne spray –all containing the brand’s proprietary Cuvée Complex™ —a unique blend of champagne, white truffle, and platinum ferment extracts combined with resveratrol, ceramides, plant proteins, and botanicals. Rachel discovered serendipitously that champagne creates amazing results for hair. On her 21st birthday party in Vegas, she was sprayed with 21 bottles of champagne, and loved the way her hair felt afterwards.

Violent Lips, founded in 2011 by Isabella and Sophia Haddad is the first ever temporary lip tattoo company. At just 13 and 9 years old, the sisters were playing around with temporary tattoos. As a joke, they affixed them onto their lips and just like that the idea for temporary lip art was born. Fast forward 5 years later and their company, Violent Lips, is one of the fastest growing trends in beauty - being hailed as the “Future of Lipstick” by Allure Magazine.

Josie Maran Cosmetics, founded by Josie Maran, is a cosmetic line made with 100% Pure Argan Oil. Today, JMC is a global brand with the motto, "Luxury With a Conscience." They use pure, Fair Trade Argan Oil, grown and harvested responsibly by co-ops of Moroccan women who earn a living wage.
