Flexi-Me

A couple months ago, I got an email from DeBorah with the subject line Hair Secrets. I’m not going to lie, I was prepared to feel embarrassed before I even read her email. I was ashamed that I still don’t know how to master doing my own hair in its natural state… and that I’ve only really tried once and...

Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of the Perfect Pink Lipstick

The very first lip product (once my mother allowed me to move on from Wet N Wild’s clear lipstick) that I remember being obsessed over was a Chanel Glossimer called Pretty in Pink. A pale frosty pink that could be pretty if I blotted it on just so. I had to have been like 11 or 12? It matched my...

Say Goodbye to Ash with Aveeno

Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion is legit. Storytime, y’all. On Wednesday it was 50 degrees–or so my iPhone said–but coupled with the fact that there was a 30 degree wind chill and I had to be at Drybar at 8am, I was freezing. I immediately regretted the decision to not wear anything on my legs or a heavier jacket but if...

No Pants.

We’re about to get pretty personal here, FYI. This polar vortex is doing something bad to my skin. Like, really bad. My friends laugh at me because I just about (and have) refuse to wear pants. Pants depress me. Even in the chills of -8 degree weather–you read that right. Negative. Eight.  Wearing: Marc Bower Faux Fur Capelet, Forever 21...

Gettin’ Mysterious with Chanel

If we’re being truthful, and we are, I haven’t really been as on it as I used to be pre-New York when it comes to my nails. I could give you a whole bunch of excuses but I won’t. I remember when I complained in front of my now-defunct Brooklyn Boy that it was too soon for him to see...

Color Me, Sophisticated

Remember when Serena let me dye her hair?? Now is time for the big reveal! Because of Serena’s new sophisticated color hair, we decided that she could have an edgier style. Much easier to experiment with your clothes than your hair, right? Mixing prints, neon, studs, the whole embellished nine. We debuted this funky new look in Williamsburg, where someone...

Dye-ing for a New Look

I know everyone likes to consider their best friends the most amazing things since quilted Chanels, but I was really blessed with great ones. People who will send me photos from the fitting room to help pick out their outfits, allow me to accompany them as they update their wardrobes for fall and most recently, take their strands into my...

From the Desk of…

I never thought that I was cut out for a typical 9 to 5 job. I’m not complaining, I’m just saying.  I like that I’m passionate enough about my job that I want to do it after I’m technically off the clock. Even if that includes washing my face and a fresh application of makeup. I’m not the only one, you...

That’s the Smell of Cherry in the Air

Last Wednesday, wait, two Wednesdays ago now, kicked off one of those surreal moments for me. Let’s start at the beginning, shall we? Two Fridays ago, my itinerary was messaged to my office, (don’t judge, this is all shiny and new for me), letting me now that I was to be picked up and taken to New York Penn Station and...

I Love My Hair… Sometimes.

Sunday morning, I didn’t like my hair. I was bored and ready to cut it. The only thing stopping me was that I didn’t exactly narrow down how short–and I don’t have a hairstylist that I trust yet. I was so tired of my hair. I wanted change. Something that was more me. Or so I thought. I wanted something...
