The packaging for the Mally lipsticks is a thing a beauty. Encased in metallic gold tubes and shaped like crayons, so chic and cute at the same time! This a lipstick I’m proud to whip out in public.  The formula contains vitamin E, mango butter and almond oil, leaving lips feeling moisturized, buttery and smooth– not at all dry or sticky. Really lovely!

The Secret to Youthful Skin in a Flash

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

Have you noticed your skin doesn’t look as youthful as it did before? Do you wish you could turn back the clock? I’m here to tell you that you can! Anybody can turn back the clock, and best of all, it doesn’t need to take very long at all! If you want to know the secret to youthful skin in a flash, read on…

Get Plenty of Sleep

Sleep plays a massive part in how youthful your skin looks. If you don’t get a good, quality night’s sleep regularly, it will take its toll on your skin. You’ll get premature wrinkles, your skin will look dull, and you’ll have dark circles to top it off. Make sure you get at least 7 hours of sleep a night. Some people need a little more or less than others, but it all depends on the person. 7 is the average and a good number to aim for.

Keep Yourself Hydrated

Hydrated skin is happy skin! Not only is water good for your skin, it’s good for the rest of your body too. Drinking 2 litres of water a day will ensure your skin glows and flushes out toxins. If you commit to drinking a big bottle every day, you should soon notice the difference.

 

Fill Up on Natural Foods

Natural food is so much better for the skin than processed junk. Sugary food can make the skin spotty and aged too, so make sure you keep sugary foods low (even fruit!). Eat plenty of vegetables, and make sure you get enough healthy fats in your diet. Avocado, egg yolk, nut butters, seeds, and similar healthy fats are great for skin.

 

Use Special Products

There are a few special products out there that people swear by when it comes to youthful looking skin. Pure emu oil has many uses, and one of them is to make the skin look more youthful. There are a number of face creams and serums that are said to work wonders too. The key is to do a little research and know your skin type, so you can select the perfect product for your skin.

 

Book in for a Beauty Treatment

Certain beauty treatments can help you to turn back the years. Prescription facials are specifically designed for your skin, so after a course of treatments you should notice younger looking skin. There’s also microdermabrasion, which polishes off the top layer of skin to reveal smoother, younger looking skin. Treat yourself and you won’t regret it!

 

Exercise

Exercise is a brilliant yet natural way to get more youthful looking skin. If you take a look at somebody who exercises and somebody who doesn’t, you’ll notice that the one who exercises looks much younger. Exercise has many different benefits, but more youthful skin is definitely one of the best.

It shouldn’t be long before you start noticing a difference in your skin with these tips. If you have any tips of your own, leave a comment below. Thanks for reading!

So Nick Jonas, Keith Urban and Pitbull Walk into a Bar…

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

Actually, they didn’t walk into any bar. They walked into Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC for the first ever PlentiTogether LIVE show, on behalf of the new Plenti Credit Card from Amex

I have to be honest, this was probably the most unique compilation of artists I’ve seen at a show. This includes the time I was 16 and went to Bamboozle to see Snoop Dog play after my favorite emo band, Say Anything perform. Black eyeliner, Motorola flip phones and Myspace!

Regardless, this was an AMAZING concert. The folks over at Plenti and Amex sure know how to throw a concert. Nick Jonas came on first and melted hearts as he popped up in a white t shirt, guns ablazin and belting out “Jealous” and “Chains”.

The crowd went crazy as he performed, and I think I may have even spotted Kevin Jonas up in the bleachers somewhere. Probably most surprising to me was Keith Urban. I’ve never been to a country concert before, but he disappeared from the stage at one point and magically appeared in THE MIDDLE OF THE CROWD shredding his guitar and converting every single person in there into a country music fan. Props to you Mr. Urban. I get why Nicole Kidman is married to you.

Finally, Pitbull, or MR.WORLDWIDE came on stage and threw the most explosive performance wrought with dancers, confetti, exaggerated hip thrusts and over the top amazingness. (Is that a word?)   Thanks so much to the folks over at Plenti and Amex for throwing this amazing concert!

And just to let you guys know..Plenti is a new loyalty program from Amex. It combines major brands like AT&T, Exxon, Macy’s, Rite Aid, Enterprise Rent – A Car and Hulu so that when you shop from any of these brands you can combine all your points into one place. That’s practical thinking! If you’re interested take a look at the new Plenti Credit Card from Amex by clicking here.

SUNSET AT INDUSTRY KITCHEN; NYC’s Newest Hotspot

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

South Street Seaport, NYC

As a native NYer, and foodie, and wannabe mixologist, and frequent user of the word, “and”,  I have to tell you, it is hard to find a great restaurant in the city with a view of the water. With the whole Williamsburg movement, it seemed for a while that all the great restaurants were opening over there in bearded hipster land. So you can imagine my surprise when I came to find that NYC’s newest hot spot is nowhere to be found in the flowing, thick rimmed, plaid button down land of Williamsburg, but just across the East River right in the South Street Seaport. Executive Chef Marc Arnold takes the helm on this beautiful, waterfront bar/restaurant and offers up the most exquisite and unadulterated views of the water. Perfect for a date or a dinner catch up sesh with friends, INDUSTRY KITCHEN will impress not just your friends, but your tastebuds as well!

I joined Industry Kitchen for their Sunset launch party as  free flowing red and white sangrias, signature mojitos and cocktails whizzed right by my head. An after work crowd of fashionable folks popped by as well to enjoy the delicious samplers like grilled peaches with ricotta cheese, fresh salmon cucumber bites and freshly made pizzas. Directly in front of the restaurant, runners sped by and couples took romantic walks with their dogs. Besides the romantic setting, the architecture of the place itself is very industrial and cool. Angled, florescent lights decorate the open bar, and a theme of reclaimed wood makes it’s presence amongst the ceiling and floors.  Really great design and architecture. Delicious foods. Amazing cocktails and wine list. This is a very romantic and hip place friends, if you go on a date, please don’t go grab a drink at any what bar…this is the perfect spot.
