keys to the new apartment

 

this past weekend, I’ve been trying to get my life together in my new apartment. My main issue is finding and creating storage. With only ONE closet in the entire apartment, I’ve been forced to entertain the idea of minimizing. My apartment is overflowing with vintage clothes, jewelry, make up, and hair care products. After working in the beauty industry for 7 years, I’ve accumulated enough product to open my own beauty supply store. It’s low key scary.

Maybe I’ll have a sidewalk sale when all signs of snow and chilling temperatures are gone.

winter beauty essentials

beauty essentials

 

Winter has officially arrived, and while you’re buying new winter coats and hats, don’t forget to purchase new beauty essentials as well. The winter weather will surely do a number on your skin, and hair. But, here are my favorite products to fight the winter weather. Also, I added a few essentials that I am OBSESSED with, and use year round.

 

The Progressive Peel by Beauty RX

About 6 months ago, I was introduced to the PEEL BAR. It’s a glycolic peel, that literally takes 10 minutes. Immediately after the service, you will notice glowing, smoother skin, and there is no redness or irritation afterwards. After completing the service, you must purchase The Progressive Peel. It’s an at home glycolic system that maintains the glow, in between peels. It’s a 3 step process, that lasts 6 weeks, including a nightly serum, exfoliating pads, and exfoliating cream.

 

Fresh- Hesperides Grapefruit, Eau De Parfum

This product is one of my year round essentials that I swear by, especially during the winter months. FRESH Parfum, is super light and lasts all day. For me, I wear a lighter fragrance during the winter months for several reasons. The #1 reason, is the close contact with New Yorkers on the train. My morning commute is crazy. Sometimes I’m standing face to face with another commuter, and the last thing I want to think about or smell is their overpowering perfume or cologne. So, I guess you could say, I’m being considerate of my fellow Rush Hour Commuters by wearing a light frangrance perfume.

 

ALOHA- The Foundation Supplements

I swear, I try to be healthy, but let’s be real. It is HARD to focus in New York City. Everyday there’s a new restaurant opening, a donut being shoved down your throat, or a co worker making you rice and beans with curry chicken. But, ALOHA, The Foundation pouch of nutrients is the perfect boost. These 5 supplements will increase energy, enhance focus, and improve your skin.

 

Burt’s Bees

The best lip balm…. EVER. The End.

the KEY to perfect bangs

I don’t care what purse is “IN” this season, or what Jennifer Fisher bracelet you’re obsessing over. The best accessory will always be the “perfect bangs.” Having your bangs cut is the most important haircut you will ever have. So, please please please, DO NOT cut your own bangs. I’ve tried it years ago, and it was a disaster.

After having bangs for over 10 years of my life, I think I’ve learned a few tricks.There are certain ways you have to maintain bangs. The best way is to use great products. My go to product for oily or limp bangs, is Oribe’s Dry Texturizing Spray. Spray a little at the root, and BAM… Life! This product can be used for giving texture and volume to hair as well.

 

the BANG product-- ORIBE, Dry Texture Spray

Even if you DON’T have bangs, you need this product- ORIBE, Dry Texture Spray
