End of Summer Beauty Routine

Written by , Posted in New York

 

It’s the end of summer and I am not sad!  I am excited to transition into cozy sweaters and boots! While your closet is having a slight change, so should your beauty routine. For my hair, after my Keratin and Ombre treatments last 6 months – it is finally getting back to normal. I have been using restorative Aubrey Organics Green Tea Shampoo and then Frizz Ease Conditioner. Once the temperature drops, I will have to blow-dry my hair again.  The Dove Dry Oil is the perfect finish for any kind of heat treatment. It is easy to use and I put it on the ends of my ponytail or braids to keep it moisturized.

After the summer, I probably won’t use BB cream as much and will use a heavier type of concealer and foundation. The best way to keep your face clean is use a family favorite. I will never forget the smell of Pond’s Cold Cream my mom used to use when I was young. This Pond’s Exfoliating cleanser is helping my skin transition into fall!

DIY Flower Crowns for Your Puppy

Written by , Posted in New York

flower power pit bulls dog adoption photography sophie gamand 6 DIY Flower Crowns for Your Puppy

Pit bulls tend to get a bad rap in popular culture, usually being portrayed as ferocious and aggressive beasts. Sophie Gamand, a U.S.-based French photographer, has set out to change all that by photographing pitbulls posed with beautiful hippie flower crowns.

Her photo series, entitled, “Flower Power, Pit Bulls of the Revolution,” aims to show the sweeter side of these oft-misunderstood animals.

The models in Gamand’s photos are just a few of the dogs looking for homes at three rescue groups in New York. The proceeds from photo print sales will go to these shelters as well!

Inspired by Sophie Gamand, you can make your very own Flower Crown for your dog.

Step 1. Measure your dog’s head with a shoe lace, string or measuring tape.

Step 2. Create a circle with Floral Wire

Step 3. Fold the wire in half and twist each end so that you have a loop.
Step 4. Trim the flowers and wind the wire around the stems.  Secure the stems with a little piece of floral tape.
Step 5. Once you have all your flowers placed and taped to the wire, tie a piece of ribbon to each loop.  The ribbon doesn’t have to be that long – just long enough to tie the crown around your dog’s head or neck.
You can put it above or below the ears to secure it

The Incredible Beauty Secret @AmarteSkincare

Written by , Posted in New York

The latest trend in skin care is mushrooms. Long known for its healing properties in traditional Chinese and Korean medicine, the magical properties of mushrooms continue; and this time with exceeding skin care benefits. Mushrooms provide a natural overall healthy skin boost, ranging from anti-aging solutions to complexion toning and smoothing. Most importantly, they are touted for their anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties and have even been used for anticancer purposes.

Amarte, the premiere luxury skin care line that combines Korean skin care philosophy with the power of Western dermatology, offers a number of skin care and sun protection products pioneering the use of mushrooms, specifically meshima mushroom, aka Phellinus linteus extract. Called meshima mushroom or black hoof mushroom, Phellinus linteus extract has been shown to have antioxidant effects equivalent to Vitamin C and anti-tumor properties on skin, lung, breast and prostate cancer cells In Korean traditional medicine, this mushroom is consumed in the form of hot tea, often as an anti-tumor agent.  In recent years it has been the subject of significant clinical study because of its reasonably well documented anti-cancer properties.  Hispidin, a resveratrol-like compound, has recently been identified as the key antioxidant molecule in this extract. The British Journal of Cancer reported in 2008 that this extract could slow the growth of different types of cancer cells and improve the effects of anticancer drugs.

Amarte Aqua Veil® Pure Hydration Serum ($57, AmarteSkinCare.com): This deeply hydrating formula optimizes skin’s ability to absorb and retain moisture. A visible magic-water veil is formed immediately upon application with resultant coolness and softness.

**This serum has the most interesting texture. It goes on incredibly quickly and is absorbed into your skin. A little goes a long way and the very fresh ‘cucumber’ type scent transforms my bathroom into a spa for a split second!

Amarte Ultra Veil® ($45, AmarteSkinCare.com): This incredibly light facial sunscreen fluid delivers Broad Spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 50+ protection, creating a physical photo-protective veil to shield skin exposed to sunlight. It protects and conditions skin while offering antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that help promote positive collagen and elastin balance.

**I wear sunscreen even on cloudy days. This is extremely easy to wear because of the sheer quality of it. It is one of the best non irritating sunscreens I have worn on my face.

Amarte Wonder Cream® ($79, AmarteSkinCare.com): A refined skin treatment used to restore and nourish precious, delicate skin. Wonder Cream revitalizes the skin with minerals and protects against external factors such as UV rays, irritation, and environmental toxins.

**My new go-to moisturizer for everyday. I love the elegant packaging and how it locks in moisture. It is sheer enough for everyday summer wear for dewy skin without feeling too heavy after a hot steamy shower.

Aqua Cream® ($93, AmarteSkinCare.com): This brightening antioxidant facial moisturizer is rich in arbutin and 1% retinol that ramps up smoothness and softness while delivering a bright glow.

Amarte Aqua Mist® Toner ($67, AmarteSkinCare.com): An instant complexion boost, this hydrating spray features a brightening formula that uses botanical ActivExtracts® including arbutin to clarify and soften, all while toning and hydrating even the most sensitive skin.

New Essential Camping Apps @VZWNYMetro

Written by , Posted in New York

New York is the third most populous state in the U.S. with approximately 19.65 million residents according to the United States Census Bureau, but almost half of that population lives in the 300 bustling square miles of New York City. That leaves tens of thousands of square miles of virtually uninhabited natural landscape to enjoy the great outdoors.

Verizon Wireless, the nation’s largest and most reliable 4G LTE network, wants to encourage New Yorkers to venture outside of the city walls in a camping journey this summer. To make sure you’re well prepared, Verizon has compiled a list of must have apps to take with you, including:
