Beauty: New Year, New You

DHC Deep Cleansing OilGLAMGLOW YOUTHMUD TreatmentCAUDALÍE ‘Premier Cru’ Eye Cream / iS Clinical Eye Youth Complex

You only get one chance to make a first impression, so put your best face forward. It’s the new year and it’s time to get gorgeous, camera-ready skin with a just a few products that guarantee a glow. To begin your skin regimen, first start with DHC Deep Cleansing Oil which is also a makeup remover, that completely dissolves all traces of dirt and cosmetics—even waterproof mascara and eyeliner—while nourishing your complexion with antioxidant-rich olive oil. Using dry hands, massage it onto your dry face, and it immediately goes to work. Add water and it transforms to a milky, vitamin-rich emulsion that rinses clean, leaving your skin feeling soft and nurtured; never dry or greasy. One try and you’ll understand why it’s the ultimate cleanser.

Next, I lightly layer on GLAMGLOW YOUTHMUD Treatment that is designed as a 10-minute anti-aging ‘facial in a jar’ for behind-the-scenes use in Hollywood and immediate camera-ready, glowing skin. I am definitely one of the faithful “GLAMAHOLICS“. I use this mask a couple of times a week or simply when I need ‘glam-tastic’ skin.

Of course, your eyes should get special treatment. The delicate eye area takes special care to keep it looking smooth and youthful so I pick an eye treatment that moisturizes and combats puffiness for a bright-eyed look. I love the celebrity favorites iS Clinical Eye Youth Complex and CAUDALÍE ‘Premier Cru’ Eye Cream. In the morning I gently pat the CAUDALÍE ‘Premier Cru’ Eye Cream under my eyes. My main concerns are dark concerns and anti-aging and this helps combat both. My under eye area is instantly brightened, smooth and youthful. In the evening I use the iS Clinical Eye Youth Complex. I have tried many eye creams but this super hydrating, thick and creamy but not oily. Helps with dark circles and gives a younger look to your whole face.

California Dreamin’ at Nate Berkus x Target Spring 2015

If you need me…..I’ll be at Target! Nate Berkus has done it again with his latest collection for Target. The designer’s Spring 2015 line is seriously inspired by a Southern California breezy beachside home. A little bit retro (macrame wall hangings!), a little bit glam (brass accents!), and a whole lot of relaxed, easy-to-live-with elements.
While I love a pouf and a wall hanging, I especially loving the modern take on an Edison bulb. Use it as a small accent light or group them together for a light installation with impact. While most products won’t be available until spring, some of Berkus‘ delights will be in Target stores on December 28th!

She is the latest star to become an internet sensation, after a picture of her getting emotional at the Golden Globes went viral.
And Chrissy Teigen must be thrilled with her unexpected turn as an internet meme, as she was seen getting on a flight out of Los Angeles the day after the awards show with a huge smile on her face.
The stunning model looked super stylish as she made her way through the terminal on Monday, in the perfect jet-set chic look.

Fashion Inspiration: Damsel In Dior

As we make our way into Januaryy, the necessity becomes obvious. I’m talking about winter accessories: scarves, hats, gloves, and all things cozy to cover the extremities. Although I live in a place that doesn’t get subzero, plenty of places that I travel to do…and I know the celebrities and my readers in the North are in the full throws of winter. The good news is that winter accessories are trendier than ever, and are a fantastic way to spruce up last season’s winter coat or fall jacket.

Go Behind the Scenes of InStyle’s February Cover Shoot with Jennifer Aniston

People talk about Jennifer Aniston a lot, but in the February issue of InStyle, available on newsstands and for digital download Jan. 9, Aniston is the one doing the talking.

“I realize they need to sell magazines,” the 46-year-old tells InStyle’s Amy Synnott of the tabloid press that loves her so, “but it’s really getting old. What kills me is when friends send me pictures they’ve taken at a newsstand. One magazine says, ‘Desperate and alone,’ and the other one says, ‘She’s eloped!’ I mean, at least consult.”

For InStyle‘s conversation at the Bel-Aire home she shares with fiancé Justin Theroux, we consulted her on many things: how she’s aged so gracefully (and yes, without Botox), how she first met Theroux, and how she maintains her oft-coveted sleek physique. As it turns out, it’s a regimen that now—cue headline here—includes pasta. “Blasphemy, I know,” she says from the gray cashmere couch in her living room while sipping passion fruit iced tea. “I never ate pasta. I’ve been allowing myself a lot more in the past few years. Which does make it harder to lose those last few pounds. But you have to live. And so what? You go up a size. What’s the big deal?”

Guest Editor: Olivia Palermo

Olivia Palermo’s style resolutions for the new year: “2015 is all about investing in new essentials, like tailored trousers and a patterned bag”

When a style icon of Olivia Palermo’s stature doles out fashion advice, you know it’s worthwhile. Palermo’s sartorial words of wisdom came in the form of a feature interview with Flare Magazine, in which she discusses everything from her take on social media at fashion shows (put your phones away and focus!), to her long-term goal of owning a skiwear brand. When the interview turned to the topic of head-to-toe runway looks, Palermo proclaimed, “how boring!”

Though Palermo is part of the elite crowd with both the access and funds to afford the most sought-after high-end items, it’s refreshing to hear her eschew the notion of dressing exclusively in designer duds. We happen to agree with her that no matter how much money you have, there’s nothing interesting about dressing in dollar signs. We much prefer Palermo’s artful, signature mixing of high and low items.

Here are the must have pieces Olivia will be seen wearing in the new year:
