Soap Spotting: The Good Stuff

Love these bars.

Some bar soaps, however, have a friendlier carbon footprint and can leave our skin silky smooth, healthy, and yearning to be touched. 1. Tocca’s Grapefruit Cucumber Bar. This bad boy is chock full of vitamin E to... More...

Who knew streaks were going to be hot for a while? Not me!

I recently asked NYC hair guru (and stylist to the stars), Paul Labrecque, what he thought the hottest trends in hair are for this season. I sort of assumed he’d say the flat, ironed look that seems to be popping up all over… but he always surprises me. Instead, he confessed that colorful streaks are totally here to stay for more than just a minute, and they can actually be done without chem... More...
