Glossier. Over the weekend I stopped by the Glossier Showroom in NYC & picked up two of their lip colors: Jam & Crush. The store is as simply elegant as the rest of their campaign. I love these lipsticks because the color adapts to your own pigment, so each color looks different on every person. It has a creamier feel to it but appears matte after application. The lipstick itself appears more natural than a lot of other lipsticks I own, which is great when going for a less “done-up” look. I also cannot wait to try their other products!
This week, for the first time, I dropped into Pink Soda, a great new blowout bar & full beauty salon in Stamford. I got their signature blowout which took only 45 minutes & lasted the whole weekend! Highly recommend.
It’s no secret I love a good sweet treat. I contacted Hayleycakes and Cookies for these incredible Beyonce themed bachelorette cookies. Just following their Instagram makes me want to become a baker- though I could never even fathom having that much icing talent. Spoiler alert: the cookies taste even better than they look.
To be quite honest, today is my Friday as tomorrow I’m heading south to celebrate my cousin and her fiancée’s wedding. Very exciting.
My first thrill this week is an INCREDIBLE event I attended at M.C. Hair: absolute favorite salon, ever. The salon hosted an event with THE Wendy Iles. If you’re unsure of the name, all it takes is a quick Google to see that you’ve probably ooh’ed and ahh’ed over hair she’s styled (cough cough Heidi Klum!) She was so fabulous and as always, M.C. Hair really knows how to throw a party. Here are a few photos from the event:
My second thrill is an article in Vanity Fair about hostess gifts. Recently, I showed up to a friend’s poolside soirée with freshly made guacamole and was greeted by guests who couldn’t believe I brought a “gift.” Isn’t it standard etiquette to show up with a little something? This gift guide will help you pick the right gift for the right occasion.
My final thrill this week is Ariana Grande’s appearance on Jimmy Fallon. I love to hate her but her impressions are pretty incredible.
Looking forward to being back in action!
Today I want to take a quick second to highlight M.C. Hair Consultants. I posted about them last week after my bestie, Alex and I attended an event at their studio. That night, I booked an appointment for this past Friday and I am still raving. Located in Cuyahoga Falls, M.C. Hair offers a range of different services and their Instagram and Facebook keep followers updated from cuts and color to ombre to balayage- plus amazing events they host. My hair’s been long and layered for sometime now and I was just looking for a quick trim and refresh. Sarah was my stylist and she did an incredible job finished with a blowout for the books. It was so good, I even took a selfie. The other stylists were working on some amazing color while I was there if that’s your preference. Definitely recommend booking your next appointment here!
Seriously, this may be the best my hair has ever looked.
Here’s to hoping today brings you a good hair day… and if not, call M.C. Hair- you won’t be disappointed!
