NEW OBSESSION: Greek Fro-Yo

15 Feb

GoGreek kids

I know I don’t cover much in the way of dining… let’s just say my food palate isn’t as colorful as my shadow palettes! In any case, frozen yogurt is totally a meal in my book.

Having admitted that, I am obsessed (no, really!) with the latest fro-yo spot to hit Beverly Hills: GoGreek Yogurt.

I won’t go into all the nutritional aspects. You can check out the site for that stuff. But I will say that it’s ah-mazing! Their farm-to-table toppings are the ones we’ve been waiting for. Can you say Chia seeds, cacao chips, flaxseed?!

You can choose from traditional Greek Yogurt or their Greek Frozen Yogurts aka my latest loves. All are flown in directly from Greece.

Each of the 4 (or 5?) flavors is uniquely delectable, but both the Honey and Chocolate are to-die-for. I’ve actually driven far outta my way to pick some up after work – and that speaks volumes in Los Angeles.

Grab some this holiday weekend!

Hair Today, Hair Tomorrow

1 Apr

Usually I babble on about makeup and skincare. Now I’m told I’ve been remiss in my hair care suggestions and discussion – or lack thereof.  I don’t really have any excuse, save to say color products are more fun.

In any case, I am not without my opinions on the subject.

So here are my Top 7 lesser-known services and products in Los Angeles…

 

1. Not only does Oscar Blandi’s Cleo de Jasmine oil serum help get rid of frizz, add life to dull hair and minimize fly-aways, but the scent is kinda intoxicating. You’ll only need one or two drops. Find it at Sephora.

 

2. Rossano Ferretti Hair Spa

Just as we learned in kindergarten not to judge a book by its cover—don’t judge this salon by a certain receptionist. Once you get past the robe room, it’s smooth sailing. I saw Michael Petrelli for color, an absolute doll who truly wanted to make sure I left with my exact desired hue. For cut and style, it’s hard not to fall in love with the artistry of young Michele Finessi. He will tell it like it is, even if it means holding off a few weeks for a specific cut.

3. Say goodbye to dry and cranky weather-hair with Yoshi’s Magic Water. I don’t know what’s in this stuff, but it works! Just follow the directions or stop by Yoshi’s Beverly Hills studio and have him break it down for you. And hey, while you’re there, indulge in a cut or blowout.

4.       Rita Hazan Root Concealer New York-based master hair colorist Rita Hazan has spent more than three years developing a root cover up spray that would stand up to her high 5th Avenue expectations. The Root Concealer is water-and sweat-resistant, plus won’t stain the face or bed linens. Available in a four different shades, we suggest going with the Blonde/Golden Blonde to mask those pesky grays. Exclusively at Sephora.

 

5.  Justin Surh | Michael John Salon Go Beverly Hills old school-style with Justin Surh at the Michael John salon. Just don’t be swayed by the unimpressive salon itself – Justin in on his game. He’s known for his customized color, hair extensions and having an exceptional eye for serving up flattering cuts. Plus, in a city known for straightening and smoothing every tress, Justin is a total curly hair expert.

6.  Shu Uemura Fiber Lift, Essence Absolue, Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil Shampoo…well, why don’t we just chalk #6 up to any of Mr. Uemura’s hair products… they’re all pretty addictive.

7. L’Oreal Paris Professionel Absolut Repair Expert—these are only sold in salons, so just ask for ‘em at your next appointment. There’s an Absolut treatment and cleanser for every type of mane. These are really great—and we’d have never known about the line if L’Oreal Paris hadn’t sent some over. So big thanks to the brand’s PR peeps. Good job!

 

 

 

2012 Golden Globes: Best of the Red Carpet

15 Jan

To be honest, 75% of the reason I watch any award show is for the red carpet arrivals. With the exception of a few candid jokes and inappropriate commentary, the red carpet is really the best part of the show. And the fashion & beauty of the 2012 Golden Globe Awards did not disappoint!

Some of the evening’s most gorgeous looks included: Piper Perabo in Olivier Theyskens for Theory, Dianna Agron in Giles Deacon, Kate Beckinsale in Roberto Cavalli, Shailene Woodley in Marchesa, Zooey Deschanel in Prada, Rooney Mara in Nina Ricci, Elle Macpherson in Zac Posen, Sarah Hyland in vintage Dolce & Gabbana, and Amanda Peet in Marc Jacobs.

Beauty trends: high pony tails, red lips, dark smoky glam eyes.
