There is a good chance, a solid chunk of you reading this right now saw the headline, rolled your eyes and were like, Duhhhhhh. Apparently, wrapping your wet hair in a T-shirt instead of a towel has been a curly girl’s trick since forever, but I only recently learned that doing so would give me the beachy waves of my dreams. My hair is naturally fine, but I have a lot of it, which means it can tend to get kind of bushy. There’s also a slight wave to it; in order to get it completely straight I have to use a flatiron, but to emphasize the waves, I’ve always had to rely on a curling iron, or more recently, a diffuser. But it’s summer, it’s muggy out, and the last thing I want to do is aim a hot blow dryer at my head. What I would love is to be able to air dry my hair and get the waves I desire. When I visited my friend Lisa in California earlier this month, I asked her how she gets her hair — which is very similar to mine — to look so effortlessly wavy. That’s when she told me about using a T-shirt instead of a towel. Keep reading »
I love silver and I love gold, but I rose gold is my absolute favorite. There’s something so elegant and princess-like about the pinkish metallic hue that’s not too flashy, but is still classically pretty. When I heard about Bite Beauty’s new Agave Lip Mask Champagne which has a rose gold pearl tint, I had no idea what that actually was, but couldn’t wait to give it a good old Beauty Test Drive. After all, I’ve given Bite’s products a try before and love them! Keep reading »
The neutral nail color trend, AKA mannequin hands, is returning this fall. Marc Jacobs’ Enamored Hi-Shine Lacquer in 9 to 5 is part of Marc’s exclusive runway nail polish collection and promises opaque coverage and high shine. Last weekend, I attended a wedding and didn’t want my nail polish to compete with my brightly-colored, graphic-patterned dress, so I opted to Beauty Test Drive this sophisticated shade. Let’s see how it turned out… Keep reading »
I loooove the smell of coconuts. Just a whiff takes me back to the beach where sunscreen and pina coladas are plentiful. So when I heard that Yes To launched a line of Yes To Coconut products, I couldn’t wait to try their lip balm and lip oil that would (hopefully) leave me tasting coconut flavors all the live long day.

Choupette, the fluffy, gorgeous princess kept by Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld, is getting her own coffee table book and a makeup line. And why shouldn’t she? There are more than enough photos of Choupette to fill the 128-page Choupette: The Private Life Of A High-Flying Fashion Cat, which will include advice from her personal vet and her “favorite maid” — one of two, d’accord. We’ll have to wait until September 15 for her (ghostwriter’s) take on beauty, healthcare, fashion tips, “secret loves and pet hates.” And then we have to wait until the holidays, when the makeup brand Shu Uemura will debut a “Shupette” makeup line under their Shupette by Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura label. Daddy Lagerfeld has, of course, photographed Choupette for the campaign. All we know to expect are furry false eyelashes and perhaps some blue eyeshadow — blue being the color of lovely Choupette’s eyes. This might just be the first ever major fashion campaign fronted by someone’s pet … although considering she has already modeled for V alongside Laetitia Casta, Choupette is not just any feline.
