Hair Care – How To Beat The Winter Doldrums!

#StrongIsBeautiful Pantene Pro-V Repair & Protect

New York City Winters are no joke.  Thankfully, this one has been pretty mild so far.  I know it is coming though.  Things are going smoothly and then of a sudden it’s below zero, there are 20 inches of snow on the ground, I can’t find one my gloves, I realize I don’t own a shovel and we have run out of milk.  At the end of the day, I always survive though…even if it means paying neighborhood kids to dig out this shovel-less girl’s car.   Continue reading

Beach Body Prep #SimplySmooth

Even though it took it’s sweet time arriving, Summer is officially in full swing and the weather in NYC has been gorgeous!  Our weekends have been packed so I have not made it to the beach just yet but we are heading there next weekend for a little mini-break.  I spent some time this past weekend prepping for it and I figured I would share the process with you guys.   Continue reading

Real Techniques Bold Metals Line Review {+ a GIVEAWAY!}

Square Insta Picture

Good morning loves!  I hope you all kept warm during the snowstorm! Thankfully, we didn’t get the massive amount of snow that was predicted!  Don’t get me wrong, we still got a bunch but I was pretty happy that I didn’t have to dig our cars out of two feet or more!  

One lovely side effect of the storm was a day off from work.  After I finished shoveling, I was able to drink a glass of wine and play around with the Real Techniques Bold Metals brushes I received at the launch party a few weeks ago.  While I have been using them since the event, I got the chance yesterday to watch a few tutorials and really get a feel for them (instead of just rushing to put my makeup on at 6 am).

They are sleek and luxurious and they work great.  The tapered bristles hold the product so well and I love the weighted feel of the brush.  They make applying makeup feel very fancy!

The Bold Metals Collection uses a color-coded system that corresponds to the key steps of makeup application: gold = base; platinum = eye; rose gold = finish.  I have chosen my favorite brush from each color category and the sweet team over at Real Techniques is going to give away a set to one lucky ALG reader!  The winner will receive:
