I’m the ultimate product queen. I have so many potions and lotions in my bathroom I guy I once dated told me he almost broke up with me early on because of it. He thought it was SPOOKY. Well…fuck him! I’m beautiful!

With today’s Gift Guide I present to you my selects for the beauty lover in your life – personally tested and loved not just by moi, but by many a beauty lover out there. The lady or guy in your life who loves a product as much as me will get down on their knees and thank you for your keen generosity. To the list!


Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial

This is my absolute favorite facial right now. It’s a mini-peel and can only be left on for 15-20 minutes, but when washed off, your skin really is soft and smooth like a baby.

Byredo ROSE OF NO MAN’S LAND

Those in the know go to Byredo for their scentsational spritzes, candles, and room sprays. One of my new favorites is the sexy, subtle “Rose of No Man’s Land”. I imagine every bougie Burner in the world would like it too.

OUAI Smooth Spray by Jen Atkin

One of my fave PR companies sent me some OUAI goodies recently so I could finally sample all the goodness that is Jen Atkin. My thoughts on the Smooth Spray? It’s a must-have, kick-ass addition to my hair routine that leaves my hair smooth and touchable after it’s been blow-dryed. It’s a MUST now, not just a WANT.

Urban Decay NAKED SKIN Concealer

I thought I had concealer all figured out until Urban Decay’s NAKED SKIN Concealer came along. Holy fucking shit, y’all. This is the best thing I’ve ever put on my face to hide what ails me. Whenever I wear it everyone comments on how fab I’m looking “without make-up” and trust me, I don’t correct them.

Girl Undiscovered Stumbled Across Paradise Face Mask

A nice addition to my line-up, I’m a fan of this newish brand’s “Stumbled Across Paradise” Face Mask. After my family’s Thanksgiving dinner I offered up a face mask party to my relatives and at least 8 of us walked around with this hydrating, skin-smoothing, yellow mask on our faces. Good times.

OUAI Memory Mist

Another newbie that I love from Jen Atkin! Her Memory Mist is sprayed onto dry hair and does magical things like give it shine, make it feel smooth in your hands, and keep your style in place. It smells great too. I always cough up for expensive hair products because really – they just work better.

SkinMedica Total Defense + Repair Sunscreen

This is the only sunscreen I use on my face. Why? Because it’s one of the ONLY ones on the market that also protects from infrared rays in addition to the usual UVA/UVB protection. Get this for everyone you love.

Joanna Vargas Daily Serum

This daily serum, along with JV’s Vitamin C serum, rank high on my list of skincare loves. It smells like a green grass salad, y’all. It’s hydrating, brightening, and I don’t leave home without putting it on in the morning.

H2O+ Beauty Lip Stain

It may look orange in the tube, but it comes out light pink and super shiny on the lips! This stuff is dope! It just kind of melts onto your mouth in the prettiest shade. Hyper-moisturizing too. Love.

Oribe Gold Lust Pre Shampoo Treatment

OHMAGODDDD do I love this product. It’s essentially a mask for your hair and leaves it so smooth, soft, and shiny. You apply when your hair is dry, before you shampoo. I like to mask my hair and face simultaneously (with a different product of course) for a bit, then step into a spa-like shower for the ultimate pampering treatment. Your friend’s hair will thank you.

Mason Pearson Boar Bristle Brush in White

For the guy or girl with everything, get them a Mason Pearson in white. This is one of the best hairbrushes EVER and leaves hair looking smooth and soft.

  1. Did you have a boyfriend who thought it was "weird" that you had beauty products? uffff, all or most women use and love beauty products. A woman who uses the products is because she wants to, feels good, sign of self-esteem, it seems superficial what I say but it is not so. I’m sorry to tell you, but your ex is an asshole…..

Easy Work Hair-Do: Gorgeous Waves Without Hot Tools!

Spring has officially sprung, friends and that means it’s time to take a good look at my hair and make the necessary changes to express a new style and of course, to keep my color bright and lovely. BTW – did I mention I’ll be at Ulta Beauty in Brentwood, California (in Northern California) on June 29th to hang out with y’all and chat all things hair with my partner Frédéric Fekkai? My look will be on point that day, inspired by the season! 🙂 I’ve been feeling serious un-done vibes when it comes to my hair lately, and with Earth Day just behind us and the flowers in my yard coming in to full-bloom I’m feeling very much like a woman looking to embrace natural beauty inspired by the season.

Why I Fast on Mondays

Monday: oh, the duality of it. I love Monday and I also hate it with a deep passion. I hate that it will take a full 5 days for the weekend/nachos to arrive. I hate that I have to answer my emails. I hate that my alarm goes off and wakes me from my Sunday slumber. Yet, once I’m conscious I remember that I love waking up early on a summer Monday, hitting the streets before 8am when the city is still sleepy and heading out for a slow sweat at SLT. I love hitting the re-set button and having another chance to do and be. I also love fasting on Mondays, my chosen day of the week to detox until dinnertime (if you’re forced to begin your week, you may as well dive in head first).
