What's in the Bag: NYFW Edition

Posted by Assunta on Wed, 09/05/2012 - 5:38 PM

Tomorrow is officially the first day of New York Fashion Week for the Spring/Summer 2013 season. We are beyond excited to be attending shows, from Nicholas K (the opening show) to Jill Stuart, Vivenne Tam, and Nanette Lepore and giving you a sneak peak of the fashion & beauty trends to come! Before we get to all that good stuff, (be sure to follow us on Twitter for live Tweeting from the shows and backstage behind the scenes), we needed to pack our bag and be prepared for those 12 hour days of fashion, friends, and sky high heels!

Check out what we've got in our bag for the first day of New York Fashion Week....did we forget anything? Let us know!

 

Goodies that we got in our bag are:

Hammer Nutrition Anti-Fatigue Caps, for obvious reasons, we're all about natural supplements and we're going to need them after 12 hour days

To go along with the fatigue, we want to be sure to stay replenished with those energizing electrolytes! That's why we'll be carrying Hammer's Endurolytes Fizz tablets in Lemon Lime flavor, yum!

While we're sitting there looking pretty at the fabulous fashions strutting down the runway, we would not dare be without Helena Rubinsetin's Lash Queen feline black mascara in black black....plus the packaging is too cute for words!

Talk about class, we're bring Yves Saint Laurent's tinted matte moisturizer and plum colored lip gloss for the classiest, yet comfortable ladylike look. This tinted moisturizer is heaven for your face and the lip color, perfect for the start of fall! Talk about keeping up with the trends!

Angel by Thierry Mugler hand lotion, because how could we go anywhere without smelling like so?

FragranceNet.com pen....represent with lots of love!

And lastly....for now, until we throw a ton of other things in...is Plane Defense inhalation pouches. With long days, the change of the weather, and the definite chance of rain, we want to keep our immune system up. These inhalation pouches will help fight airborne offenders and keep our immune system kickin' til we can kick back and relax...on the last day of fashion week. 

 

 

How To: Ballerina Bun

Posted by Assunta on Fri, 08/31/2012 - 3:30 PM

This is one of our favorite looks right now, and for some pretty awesome reasons! It's classy, it's quick, and the best part about it, you can wear this style with almost anything! Shall we get started! Let's go...

First, you'll want to use a 1-inch curling iron to curl all of your hair under. This definitely does not need to be perfect, so this is a pretty fairly quick step #1.

Next, flip your hair (back and forth) and gather all of your hair into a nice, high ponytail, brushing and smoothing your hair to rid any bumps and lumps

Now with that smoothing brush, back comb and slightly tease your hair in the ponytail for a more voluminous bun look.

Now onto the bun!

Twist your hair and wrap it around the base to create your bun shape. This is an easy step, think spiral.

Now, make sure this look stays with bobby pins securing the cute bun to your head

Spray with some finishing spray and smooth down any fly-aways.

When will you try this classy, ballerina-esque look?
