It seems like New York Fashion Week FW 2015 wrapped months ago…it’s only been a week. While the fashion is always something to behold, I’m usually more excited about the beauty…because, well…ThisThatBeauty.

NYFW 15 Get The Look: Hair, Hair and More Hair with Viviscal


All week I’ve been covering shows and sharing how Viviscal can help achieve the enviable lengths we’re seeing on the runway this season. I’ve never been super into length, but with Viviscal — game on! I suddenly find myself day dreaming about mid early summer and how awesome my hair will be (it takes about [...]

SHOW: Carmen Marc Valvo BEST BEAUTY: Schoolgirl Americana 2.0 GET THE LOOK: Ted Gibson describes this looks as “perfect for the girl who hasn’t had a shampoo in a couple of days and wants to do something other than a ponytail or a braid.” I’m a huge fan of protective styling as well as styles [...]

Rebecca Minkoff AW 15

SHOW: Rebecca Minkoff FW 15 BEST BEAUTY: Night-before eyes and shaggy bangs GET THE LOOK: I’m still stuck on the runway look for Rebecca Minkoff.

NYFW Get The Look: Rachel Comey AW 15


SHOW: Rachel Comey AW 15 BEST BEAUTY: Skin and hair ruled at Rachel Comey. GET THE LOOK: Leave it to NARS (Lead Artist Maud Laceppe) to create skin so effortlessly fresh and dewy.

Elixir Charnel Gourmand Coquin is THE Perfect Valentine’s Day Scent

Guerlain Elixir Charnel Gourmand Coquin

I’ve never wanted to smell edible until Elixir Charnel Gourmand Coquin by Guerlain. I’m not really a yummy fragrance kind of girl. That’s never been my scene. Even as a preteen, those bubblegum-y Bonnie Belle scents were wasted on the kid. And as an adult, my fragrance picks generally lean toward masculine choices. I’m an [...]
