*Always hold the nozzle of the blow dryer parallel to the hair, not pointing directly at it, which can cause over-heating and damage.

When I attended the New York Fashion Week Blogger Mixer put together by Paul Baranda (Beyond Beauty Basics) and Lianne Farbes (TheMakeupGirl) I snagged some great interviews (including Ted Gibson and Jason Backe!) Have a look!
I am a fan of all natural skincare products and I try to use ones with organic based ingredients in my daily cleansing regime. I am always searching for an excellent milky cleanser that goes on quickly and gets the job done without drying my skin. I recently found the Buttermilk Cleanser from Organic Apoteke and I am hooked. The cleanser has the faint scent of roses (Damask rose oil) and the silky smooth texture is pure luxury. I often cleanse my face with the Buttermilk Cleanser in the late afternoon when I need a little pick-me-up. It leaves me feeling refreshed and ready for an evening out. My face feels amazingly clean and smooth afterwards and most traces of makeup are removed. I do need to use a bit of Shu Uemura cleansing oil to remove my mascara though.
This past Sunday, on behalf of A Girl’s Gotta Spa! I went to see a runway show sponsored by Oral B at Hatchette’s Style360 that featured Caravan boutique looks from designers such as Rich & Skinny, Tart, Maxey, Bobi and was hosted by Maria Menounos. While there I spotted Chris Noth (he sat directly across from me!), Shanae Grimes from 90210 and Teresa from the Real Housewives of New Jersey.
