Julia of "Fashion Pulse Daily"

•••
I've known Julia DiNardo of FashionPulseDaily.com for about as long as I've been in New York, and she's always been a great positive energy. We've worked together on a few projects, and it's always a pleasure catching up. Recently we met in between shows at Lincoln Center for some photos, and I thought I'd share a few.

Osis+ Dust It

•••
Looking for a boost of volume and a touch of texture? Osis+ Dust It should be your product of choice. This is great for all hair lengths -- I've used it when I had longer bangs, and I also use now and think it's even better with my shorter hair. This kind of product is one of the fashion week secrets backstage — it can help transform greasy, limp, lifeles[...]

Tata Harper Hydrating Floral Essence

•••
Before I moved to NYC and started working in beauty, I really didn’t know anything about grooming. I was supposed to wash my face and that was it, right? Oh, how much we learn. As I’ve been introduced to a variety of products over the last few years, there are some that I never thought I would like that have become my absolute favorites. One of those is Tata[...]

Lebon Toothpaste

•••
For me, luxury is in the details. I don’t think everything needs to be over the top or expensive, but a well placed splurge is one of my strategies for living life a little more luxe. One thing I do like splurging on is toothpaste, which admittedly isn’t something you usually think about as a luxury item, but hear me out. First thing in the morning, what [...]

BiothermHomme AQUAPOWER Moisturizer

•••
The BiothermHomme AQUAPOWER is one of my favorite moisturizers out there. I found it while travelling — hey Duty Free, you’re looking cute today — and I make it a ritual when I travel to head over to the sample counter when I'm traveling and pay it a visit. This is technically a gel moisturizer, and I love the texture and finish of this. It has a jelly-li[...]

American Crew Daily Shampoo

•••
With all of the pomades, creams, and styling agents out there, it’s easy for your hair and scalp to get neglected. While I have been a fan of the “no poo’ movement, where you totally forgo shampoo of any kind, my styling habits have changed, so I’m back on the lookout for a good shampoo. The team at American Crew sent over their Daily Shampoo, which has b[...]

Korres Yoghurt Instant Soothing Gel

•••
Korres Yoghurt Cooling Gel is one of my summertime favorites, but now that it’s winter and everyone seems to be jetting off to tropical locales, I feel like it’s as good a time as ever to tell you guys about this one. This moisturizer is perfect for using right after sun exposure, and the yogurt hydrates the skin instantly, while helping to remove excessi[...]

Paludan Bogcafé

•••
When I was little I was either lost in my own imagination, or in the pages of a book. I still love slipping away into another world, page by page. As I’ve gotten older my love of food has grown to rival that of reading, so when I was told to go to Paludan Bogcafé, I was there in a heartbeat. When I was in Copenhagen my friend up in Stockholm gave me a lis[...]

Hanz de Fuko Quicksand

•••
Now that my hair is the shortest it’s ever been, my hair styling needs have drastically changed. With super straight and unruly hair, I’m always looking for products that will add texture, hold, and a bit of volume. But not make me look like I'm over-gelled or have a greasy mop. My newest go-to product is Quicksand from the guys at Hanz de Fuko. The offic[...]
