Beauty On the Go: Adidas Fruity Rhythm | Deep Energy

One of my best friends is extremely sporty. She’s a vivacious middle school teacher, active cheerleading coach, mommy to two giant dogs and all-around fabulous Phi Mu!

With Christmas just around the corner the idea of what to get her was daunting. What do you get the girl who has pretty much everything, who likes pink, wears pearls and can run a Tough Mudder better than some men I know?

“Eating foods rich in antioxidants, such as pomegranates, can be beneficial in boosting your skins’ natural sun protection and are a great source of structured water, giving your body a two-in-one benefit.

Try to eat foods that are rich in color and take internal supplements that contain pure pomegranate extract and Vitamins C & E, to help boost the SPF of your sunscreen and neutralize free radical damage that may occur even while you’re wearing sunscreen.” – Howard Murad M.D., Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine at UCLA and founder of Murad Inc.

Recently, I had the chance to sit down and chat with the Dr. Murad team about getting beach-ready and staying safe in the sun.

{Beautirati} Butter London: Disco Biscuit [Swatches + Pics]

Hello Spring! and Hello Summer!

This is “Disco Biscuit,” part of Butter London’s SS12 line of polishes, and it makes me want to say “Disco my biscuit.”

Don’t ask me why, but if I were Cher, and this was “Clueless,” I kind of feel like that would be something that would slip off of my tongue with ease.

Backstage at New York Fashion Week FW12: Style at Tracy Reese

For Fall/Winter 2012 Tracy Reese’s collection oozed a natural street-inspired style with strong shoulders, bold tones and a variety of textures, embellishments and patterns.

A sponsor of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, TRESemmé was on hand with stylist Jeanie Syfu who created a textured bed-head look meant to compliment and mimic the style of the clothing.

“The hair is inspired by the mood of the collection – an accessible look that reflects a natural street style.

The clothes are meant to be worn by normal people and when the complete look comes together, it sends a head-to-toe message.”

– Tracy Reese

Backstage at New York Fashion Week FW12: Carlos Miele’s Redken Hair

Brazilian born Carlos Miele is one of my favourite designers and I was in absolute awe at his Fall/Winter 2012 show this season at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

For his collection, inspired by the south winds of Rio, Miele enlisted Rodney Cutler of Redken to style his models with feminine and casual elegance.

To be quite honest, the entire show had me singing Paula Fernandes’ “Canções do vento Sul.”

… and I adore Fernandes, so I was a very happy girl during Miele’s entire runway presentation.

The final product was to vie for!
