PARIS FASHION WEEK, A PREVIEW

Part of what’s so fun about living in London is how easy it is to pop into Paris.  A night or long weekend?  No problem!  Be there in a few hours.  Life is crazy, fleeting, and feels like a dream at the moment.  I just hope no one wakes me up 🙂 Although I’ll be back in Paris in just a few days, I got to spend a night there last week with some friends for a quick work trip. …

SUMMER IN LONDON

Ok guys on the real, summer in London has been a DREAM. There are a few things contributing to this, which I’ve listed below 🙂 1. The weather lately!!! We all know about London weather – grey and at times dreary. BUT, this summer we’ve had tons of sunshine. Let’s just say, morale is particularly high as of late, and I’m not complaining one bit. 2.

LONDON RECOMMENDATIONS FROM AN AMERICAN GIRL PART I.

In the last few months, I’ve received a ton of DM’s and emails asking for London recommendations! Seeing as your girl is going on living ONE YEAR (yep, crazy right?) in this city, I think it’s high time to get you guys a London guide. It also makes things a lot more exciting when I can pass along a blog post instead of an ugly email draft I have sitting in gmail, you feel me? Over my first year living…

BLONDES HAVE MORE FUN

The start of Spring always signals a little hair refresh, ya feel me? And for us blondes out there, this usually means lighter LOCKS.  I was in the states last week, so the timing worked out perfectly to pop in and see my hair stylist (Nacar at Laicale in NYC).  Below are before and after shots of my hair – needless to say, I was in need of some major TLC – cut, color, the whole shabang! After opting for…

SPRING DRESSING

Hi my beauties!  Thank the good lord, spring is finally HERE.  Did this not feel like the longest winter of all time?  Although I missed out on a northeast winter  in the states (which I am not complaining about) I finally got what people said about London weather.  Let’s just say, the grey can, well, get to you.  After one too many days of cloud covered skies, a girl can use some sunshine. With the onset of spring, you instantly…

Now, to judge whether or not hair oil is for you, let me start by telling you that I have fine hair.  My issue with a lot of hair oils that I’ve used in the past, is that they had a tendency to weigh my hair down.  So mainly, I’d refrain from including in my hair routine. Recently,…
