I am so excited for the new H&M Beauty, set to debut this fall. The packaging looks super luxe, and the collection will be available in 900 stores worldwide. Is there such a thing as “fast beauty”? Maybe H&M will show us how it’s done.
Without divulging too much about the level of obsession I have for my guilty pleasure The Only Way is Essex, I’m having my roommate who is on a European vacation look for memorabilia for me. It’s hard being in the US when your obsession is only relevant in the UK. Am I right? Being the beauty focused person I am, I asked my loving roommate to look for Lauren Pope’s Hair Rehab London extensions for me at Superdrug. He asked me how he might match my hair being over in the UK and me being stateside. I told him I trusted in his judgement and resigned to be surprised. But I was lucky enough for him to send me pictures (that is a true friend) so I can choose a color. I am so excited for these hair extensions and I wish they had these products at US drugstores. Who knows, maybe that’s in the works for Walgreens.
It’s no secret that I love Jeremy Scott. He’s always been one of my favorite designers and now that he’s the Creative Director of Moschino, the house is another platform where we can see his work. His latest collection (Spring 2015 RTW) for Moschino showed last week in Milan. In true Jeremy Scott fashion, this collection was exciting, campy and a snap-shot of pop culture. After taking on McDonald’s last season, this collection was inspired by Barbie herself.
I am so in love with this collection, everything from the signature pink color to the models’ blonde wigs —the looks were perfectly Barbie. I’ve featured some of my favorite looks below:

I recently had the amazing opportunity to attend the US press debut of Tangle Teezer. I’m a huge fan of UK beauty blogs and I’ve been seeing the product for quite some time on their sites. I can’t tell you how jealous I’ve been that it hasn’t made its way to the US sooner.
Tangle Teezer is designed to get tangles out of hair, especially wet hair (miracle worker), and it does not cause damage or breakage. I met Shaun P the creator of Tangle Teezer, and his enthusiasm in the brush alone sold me. The event also had two amazing stylists Shane Michael Manieri and John Kovacs from Chris Chase Salon in Chelsea. And what is so great is that they use the product in the salon. Tangle Teezer is definitely doing something right to have the support of New York City salons (there is no tougher critic!). In addition to The Original (blue and pink brush seen below), Tangle Teezer also comes in other forms: Aqua splash, Compact Styler, and the Salon Elite.
The Original is perfect for all hair types, as all the Tangle Teezer products are, and works on wet and dry hair. The design of the teeth is what makes the brush glide through tangles without pulling and pain. For anyone who feels like they’re loosing hair when you try and brush it out after the shower, this product us for you. It will minimize hair loss because of it’s unique design and comb structure.
The Aqua Splash Tangle Teezer is designed to be used in the shower and is ideal for distributing conditioner or leave-in treatments into the hair. Not only does it detangle wet hair in the shower, it will help you use less hair product and minimize build-up. It also works on every type of hair: the toughest curls, real and synthetic extensions, and weaves.
The Compact Styler Tangle Teezer is my favorite product. It’s small and fits into your bag –perfect for on the go. Called the “mini-me” of The Origninal Tangle Teezer, the Compact Styler has the same teeth configuration to detangle, leaving hair with a soft and polished look. The stylists also demonstrated how the compact styler could be used to tease hair effortlessly. Just as simply as it creates a tease, it also brushes the tease out with no pain or pulling.
Tangle Teezer is a celebrity favorite of Victoria Beckham, Cara Delevingne, Alicia Keys, Emma Watson, Lara Stone and more.
Tangle Teezer can be found at Target, Ulta, Sally, SpaceNK, Urban Outfitters, Ricky’s and Amazon.com.
