Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray

10.29.2013

It's a shit dry shampoo (they boast it's a great alternative to one -- lies!) but a fab 2nd day spray in the lengths.
(After I've used blow pro Faux Dry and Jonathan Green Rootine around my roots, of course.)

Catbird Tomboy and Classic Hammered Frist Knuckle Rings

10.28.2013

Knuckle rings make it hard to open my water bottle, but I'll suffer from dehydration for fashion.


I've been dying for some catbird stacking rings for years -- I've drooled at them in the flesh at their Brooklyn shop and spent way too much time pinning them late at night. But alas, I never took the plunge. I've always held back because A. they are pricey and B. I never know what sizes to get for knuckle rings. Problem solved. The rings went on sale recently, a rare occurrence, so I jumped at the opportunity. I threw caution to the wind and guessed at what sizes I would need (I was actually pretty accurate thanks to a googling website that allowed me to measure my Datter Industries knuckle ring for comparison). I ended up with 2 Tomboy First Knuckle Rings and 3 Classic Hammered First Knuckle Rings (plus a free tote!).

Protect Ya Neck: Physical Sunscreen

10.26.2013

Just because Summer is over doesn't mean you should quit with the SPF.


I'm all about "physical" sunscreens (Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide -- read up on difference from chemical sunscreens here.) These sunscreens are easily found at your local health food store, or even Sephora! I personally love the Clarins UV Plus HP Day Screen High Protection SPF 40 under makeup, the Lavanila The Healthy Sun Screen Face Cream on my face when I'm not wearing makeup, and will use any of the above creams on my body.

Any other sunscreen recs? I'm all ears!

The ASOS PETITE Exclusive Biker Coat* is a beauty. Why?

It's a simple formula really... faux leather sleeves + black = love.

Aesop Parsley Seed Cleansing Masque

10.06.2013

I first heard the gushings over Aesop's Parsley Seed Cleansing Masque from Anna... and like all her recommendations, this face mask that stands up to the hype. [ side note: my beauty trifecta team = Lisa Eldridge, Anna, and Caroline Hirons... they will NEVER steer you in the wrong direction. #blindfaith ]


Slap it on, rinse off after 10-15 minutes, and you're one mask application closer to gorgeous skin. The man at the Aesop store on Fillmore St. (San Francisco) told me this mask is so gentle that you could potentially use it every day. Now, I don't use it that frequently -- as I'm typically running a rotation of Biologique Recherche Masque Vivant, REN Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask, and Dermalogica Gentle Cream Exfoliant -- but it probably gets busted out of the medicine cabinet at least two times a week with happy results. However, when it comes to balancing my temperamental skin, I must say that the aforementioned Biologique Recherche Masque Vivant still holds the #1 place in my heart.
