Even as a natural blonde, bi-monthly coloring is a must for my ashy roots. After my regular visits to the Serge Normant at John Frieda Salon in Chelsea, is top of mind. When you spend the money and time on color treatments, maintaining that long-lasting vibrancy is a priority. With over thirteen years of color care product testing under my belt, I can recommend these products with confidence!
On Thursday night, I partnered with Lucky Magazine to host the grand opening of the new PANDORA store in SoHo alongside Lucky’s Accessories Editor, Melissa Lum and fellow blogger, Helena Glazer of Brooklyn Blonde. It was a charmed night, filled with bubbly, shopping and some of the most delectable cupcakes I’ve had to date. (Note to self, next time I’m in Williamsburg, stop by Sips & Bites).
PANDORA I’m huge into customizing and personalizing your own looks so imagine how much fun it was to host an event where guests literally had hundreds of charms to choose from. Plus, much like me PANDORA is all about mixing and stacking jewelry from rings, to bracelets to necklaces so I had a blast helping fans play dress up. And then there was the stories… one customer was telling me how every year for her birthday her boyfriend buys her a new charm. Another had been collecting them since High School and was almost done with her bracelet.
Naturally, I have a few PANDORA favorites — which PANDORA created tent cards throughout the store to note our Lucky Picks! My first and foremost is the Royal Crown necklace
I’m so excited! Yesterday, my feature went up on Kmart’s blog. Check it out my interview with the mega-retailer and the behind-the-scene images from my upcoming video shoot: kmrt.us/Q2LEXH
