UBUNTU OILS FROM AFRICA™ are a new generation of oils for targeted haircare. ‘Ubuntu’ means kindness and these oils will leave hair pampered, repaired, restored and full of juicy goodness once again. Living in a dry climate like SoCal, where I’m either flat ironing, curling or subjecting my hair to Brazilian Blowouts makes me an ideal candidate for their products. These high quality, vitamin enriched oils are sourced using fair trade principles and capture traditional African beauty regimes. The range comprises 4 targeted oils for specific hair types: Baobab oil for dry hair, Mafura oil for the repair of coarse/damaged, […]
I have a great hairdresser named Kiko who has a wonderful line of amazing haircare products called Leeya. I love his conditioner, serum and his texturizing hair wax is sublime. I think hair wax is great for those with short hair, but Kiko’s line is so versatile, this wax is great for fly away hairs. Kiko has been in the salon industry for over 26 years and is still inspired by all areas of hair designing. At the age of 13 his grandfather bought his first pair of scissors and clippers. And from that point on he found his true […]
I was introduced to the wonderful cruelty and paraben-free Youngblood Cosmetics line years ago. I especially wear Youngblood when I do my own makeup as it’s really easy to use. One brutally hot day in October, I had two events to attend and my makeup stayed put! Thanks so much Youngblood. My favorite products in the line are the mineral primer and the mineral blush in blossom as well as the pressed eyeshadow in pink diamond. More info at http://www.ybskin.com

During Emmy week, I got to check out The DPA pre-Emmy awards gifting suite September that was hosted by Nathalie Dubois-Sissoko and DPA at the penthouse terrace of the super swanky LUXE Hotel on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills.

I love, love, love Youngblood products! I purchased some products years ago at a charity event in Hollywood at the Supper Club and still have loyalty to what I’ve used in the line. What I loved about my intro to this great line was that the proceeds from the package that I bought were donated to the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation for breast cancer research. Pauline Youngblood is the founder and CEO of this wonderful cruelty and paraben-free line and is a breast cancer survivor herself and supports many cancer related causes. In addition to all of this amazingness, […]
I went to the Plaque HD event at LA Optometric that was hosted by Dr. Sherri Worth, who has a thriving dental practice in swanky Newport Beach. Guests sipped on refreshing coconut cocktails courtesy of Zico and sinfully delicious Georgetown Cupcakes. PLAQUE HD with Targetol Technology is the First Professional Plaque-Identifying Toothpaste. This advanced technology contains disclosing agents to color and identify plaque build-up on teeth. This allows the patient to target any areas of plaque build-up that may have been missed during brushing to completely remove plaque from teeth. I also enjoyed my all-natural wood Woodzee toothbrush. I felt like […]
I had a great time at the ESPY’s Celebrity Connected Gifting Suite at the swanky JW Marriott. Well worth the trek downtown, especially since I got to meet Jiffpom, the cutest dog ever! Too cute!
In the hulabaloo of my commendation at the West Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce the week before, I decided to check out the BET week Pre-Beauty & Brains Fashion Show and Gifting Suite at the California Market Center, a true mecca of West Coast fashion. It was great to run into my friends Phillip Delacruz from Dama Tequila and BJ from Hula Girl.
I checked out the Gilt City Wearhouse Sale right when it opened at Siren Studios in Hollywood and boy am I glad I did. While I swooned over Valentino, Reem Acra, and other haute couture designers, I was all about the bargains. I picked up a great jacket for $15 (!) and a nice Sam Edelman coat for a song. I spied some great stuff there. Couture hounds beware! Reem Acra gowns that are worn by A listers at the Oscar. A box shaped jewelry encrusted Judith Leiber clutch and some other great bags. Other coveted designer brands featured at […]
