Off all the industries in the world, I really feel that probeauty is one of the best at giving back---between cut-a-thons, makeovers and even nationwide company fundraisers, you guys really rock!
So Launchpad felt that the least we could do to give back recently was by donating beauty products to be gifted/auctioned at the Nataline Sarkisyan Foundation Fashion Legacy event.
As my wedding day nears, it's time to tie down those odds and ends--one of those being my makeup.
Don't get me wrong, I know well-done makeup for the day-of is very important. Every bride wants to feel beautiful on her special day, PLUS, pictures--both good and bad--last forever!
Yesterday, the LP team (Executive Editor Amy Dodds, Senior Associate Editor Alyson Osterman, Associate Publisher Danielle Timsit and yours truly) ventured out of the office and into beautiful Santa Monica. The purpose of our field trip? To experience luxurious nourishing treatments courtesy of Kérastase at Luxelab salon. Now, I've had my share of moisture/reparative/shine enhancing treatments, and I have to say that this was definitely one of the best yet.
Wedding bells are just around the corner for me! Luckily, I had the privilege of getting my hair coiffed by superstylist Mohammad Rahebi over the weekend to get a couple ideas of how I want my hair to look for the big day!
I laughed, my mom cried (tears of joy, I assure you!), and Mohammad made the entire experience wonderful.
So yesterday I was blessed to be a guest at the Angus Mitchell Salon in Beverly Hills for a color with Christopher Enlow and a cut with none other than the owner himself! First, let me begin by telling you what a well thought out salon this is. Upon my walking in, I was greeted by Elisa Bennett, the salon business manager, who gave me a quick tour of the two-story, 12-chair salon. She pointed out the artwork hanging upstairs (courtesy of Angus, natch) that can close to protect celeb privacy as it adds Angus' stamp to the salon.
Me and Oribe
I'm still winding down from this weekend's Oribe Backstage event, where I was whisked away to Las Vegas' Hard Rock Hotel and Casino to celebrate the annual education/inspiration spectacle.
