AHAVA Dead Sea Osmoter Concentrate Serum

AHAVA Dead Sea Osmoter Concentrate Serum

I actually came across AHAVA sort of backwards. Years ago, I was on a Birthright Israel trip and we spent one afternoon at the Dead Sea. It’s so funny how recent it feels when it was well over a decade ago. Anyway, I remember being blown away at how amazing my skin felt following our Dead Sea foray, and then — years before I was a beauty girl — I became obsessed with finding products that contain Dead Sea minerals, and came across AHAVA. Now, I’m a bit older, and have a bit more products in my arsenal, and I still love AHAVA, who have just released a serum that promises to recharge, rehydrate, and illuminate. I’ve been using the AHAVA Dead Sea Osmoter for about a week, it’s a unique concentrated serum helps rehydrate your skin...

Video: Learn How To Make Crock Pot Baked Potatoes! (And a giveaway!)

Video: Learn How To Make Crock Pot Baked Potatoes! (And a giveaway!)

You know that saying about if you can, do, and if you can’t, teach? The following video is something of an illustration of such. I’m at my parents for Rosh Hashonah, and as my mother has something like 8 burners going, cooking — I was assigned BAKED POTATOES. In a desperate attempt to make it seem a lot more epic than it actually is, I have illustrated my cooking process in the below video. Believe it or not, you don’t have to use the oven to make baked potatoes – you can make rather fabulous ones IN A CROCK POT. Truth is, I’m a Crock Pot junkie (I also can make a mean Crock Pot fried chicken if you want that to be my next video demo!), and Crock-Pot  is getting ready to launch its annual consumer contest — the Ultimate...

My Rain Bonnet Has Gone Modern

My Rain Bonnet Has Gone Modern

I don’t think it comes as any surprise that I’m immoderately obsessed with my hair. Blame my mom (my inspiration in most things), but I’ll risk life and limb to protect a blowout. True story: My mom once shattered an elbow running to beat out the rain. It’s her only broken bone ever. And while I’ve had many non-hair-related injuries, in the situation, I’d have done the same. Because of this — bones aren’t very easy to fix, you guys! — we’ve been trained to carry disposable shower caps with us at all times. And I do. They are in my purse. I take them out on a rainy day, in case a hotel bathroom has a shoddy shower cap situation, at a dentist office, on water rides…really, you never fully know when...

Sponsored Post: FiberChoice Challenge (and Giveaway)!

A few weeks ago, in the throes of a month that led to me having way too much travel in a short period of time, FiberChoice contacted me and asked me to take their 30-day challenge. They challenged me to “get picky” and switch to a Fiber Choice product for my daily fiber supplement. Most of us only get half the recommended daily amount of fiber, if that much. Even for the healthiest eaters, it can be a challenge to incorporate 25 to 30 grams of fiber each day to maintain one’s health and well being.  Add those of us who spend half their time on planes, in hotels, or at business dinners, and it’s probably even worse. Fiber is super important to our overall health because it keeps food moving through our systems. Fiber Choice® products...

Giveaway: Panasonic’s Fab Vintage-Style Monitor Stereo Headphones

Giveaway: Panasonic’s Fab Vintage-Style Monitor Stereo Headphones

I love people, but I also really love being alone with my music and my thoughts. You can say I just may be an introvert in a sociable world — and when I’m having those alone-with-my-music moments, it can very well be in a semi-public place. I spend many a Sunday in a local cafe with a latte and my laptop — and said great music, and this past weekend, I did so wearing a fun new pair of headphones. Panasonic has recently reintroduced their vintage-style Monitor Stereo Headphones into Urban Outfitters stores and online. These  are super cute and come in four colors that are the perfect accessory to any head to toe look. I love the retro styling: Inspired by old-school design, the RP-HTX7 provide a lightweight, comfortable listening experience...

Sponsored Post: Beano Plus Dairy Defense Challenge (And Giveaway!)

Throughout the month, I’ve been taking the Beano Plus Dairy Defense Challenge, and this week, it’s all coming to a conclusion. I have to say – I was hesitant to take the challenge at first. I write here about my exciting adventures and hair decisions — did I want to share the (not so sexy) realities of issues digesting the sugars in dairy? Not so much. But then again, I’m learning from your feedback that it’s far more common a difficulty than I realized. In fact, just last week, I was out to dinner with a friend and we shared the Queso appetizer. Also on the menu? These gorgeous elote-style mole chicken wings at left.  I had taken my Beano Plus Dairy Defense — she hadn’t. Lets just say the evening ended up way more...

Who Needs a Ride? Anywhere, Everywhere, I’m Here For You!

Who Needs a Ride? Anywhere, Everywhere, I’m Here For You!

I’m so excited. As the girl who doesn’t drive (it’s sad but true), and lives in the outer boroughs, I have always been grateful for the lift a kind friend can give me, especially on late tipsy nights that the subway doesn’t feel like the best idea ever. This week, with New York Fashion Week on the horizon and increased potential for said late nights, I have exciting news: I’ve partnered with Hailo, and I’m paying forward the favor to the masses! Starting right now, if you are a new user to Hailo and use my promo code — ALYFW20 — you will get $20 off any ride! If that ride is $20 or less, that means it’s free! Hailo is the world’s highest-rated taxi app, and available on ios and Android, and offer offer three...
