With all the trends coming off the runway this year, one of the hottest trends was the pop bun. Easy to do and very chic, this haute-do makes the list for some of the hottest designers for a trend that is a must. This stylish bun is sure to stick around longer than summer. We LOVE it!
Please don’t mind the mess in the background, I had a beyond hectic week and my guest bed has become my office:)

Nothing is sexier than red rougey lips, and designers clearly agree! At Hervé Léger, United Bamboo, Karen Walker, Vivienne Tam, and Prabal Gurung shows at NYFW this past weekend, the popular designers used MAC’s Lady Danger (the matte orange-red lipstick). Makeup-artist, Stevie Huynh descibes the look as a “strong lip from a minimal standpoint”. This trend is sure to hit from runway to realway, take note diva!
Studies have shown, unlike any other nut, walnuts have a significant amount of alpha-linolenic acid, omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E that all contribute to beautiful skin and hair. This is why many articles on hair loss have recommended eating walnuts to reverse the process–by maintaining healthy hair, preventing hair from falling and actually increasing hair growth. Furthermore, these power nuts are also rich in protein, fiber, vitamin B, and magnesium which all contribute to healthier blood and bones.
The FDA released the following statement in March 2004 to further emphasize the benefits of walnuts:
“Supportive but not conclusive research shows that eating 1.5 oz of walnuts per day, as part of a low saturated fat and low cholesterol diet, and not resulting in increased caloric intake may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.”
Boy I thought I was born lucky! I had skin that no matter what, never broke out–well until I hit my late-teens, early-twenties. Who wants to have acne when everyone else is getting over it? I ended up with craters all over my face at the worst of moments, right before my beau would come into town, the day before a photo shoot, the night before my best friend who I hadn’t seen in a year would visit! Yes, I know, acne is evil! After trying every beauty product in Sephora, Aveda, Lush and the like, I thought my only option would be something severe like Acutane. Enter Ole Henriksen.
As a young boy Henrikson studied natural remedies in countries from Indonesia to London to understand their reaction with skin. Some odd years later and he is now the preferred brand of A-listers including Naomi Campbell, Charlize Theron, and Linda Evangelista.
What it did for me, made my skin more even toned, tighter, and brighter. Ever since using this product, I am constantly asked what is my secret to beautiful skin. My secret? Good product! Looks like I may be lucky after all!
