At first I was afraid, I was petrified…

I remember seeing something like this in my grandfather’s bathroom, and being afraid of it. It was a sign of danger. Years later when I stared shaving, based on the amount of irritation I got from modern-day razors, I was petrified to go near it because I thought it would be double maybe even triple the …

Goodbye dry hands.

A friend of mine, Inanna, turned me onto Hand Food by Soap & Glory. Being that we are both hairdressers, our hands are constantly being washed or in water. Before each client, while shampooing, and after applying products. Our hands are always dry and look like scaly old lady lizard hands! The greatest thing about Hand …

How can your face can be oily and dry at the same time?

Winter is here, and our skin can do some weird things. My skin tends to be on the oily side, but I do get a dry patches. So the hunt for the perfect moisturizer, for me, took a really long time, like years. Oily skin products made my dry areas look like Eczema. Normal skin moisturizers …

Unsure about your nail salon?

Let’s face it, some of us just love a dicey nail salon. They’re quick, cheap, and you never need an appointment. The one thing I do not like is the risk of getting a nail fungus from using the jet spa foot bath. Just to be clear, to properly clean out the foot bath you …

The new new for travel comfort.

Being bicoastal mean that I tend to be sitting on a 6 hour flight, and not get up and move around, often. I recently read, online, that can cause fatigued legs, and Varicose Veins. Neither of them, do I want anything to do with. My bestie Sonya told me her husband was having leg issues whilst …

That perfect healthy nail color.

When it comes to that sheer, nude pink Mademoiselle. It is one of Essie’s most popular colors, but I personally feel there is a little more white in it than I like to see. Being a colorist a slight off annoys me, so I decided to actually find that ‘Perfect” healthy nail color. That is …

The Ferrari of beard trimmers.

Not all trimmers are created equal. The Babyliss Pro Volare X1 is proof of that! This bad boy does not only look like a Ferrari, it is a Ferrari. Babyliss designed this with Ferrari engineers. The Babyliss Pro Volare X1 is pricey, about $150, but it will be the last clipper you buy. Well, that is until you drop it …
