Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: BlowPro Perfect Shower Cap


The shower and my chemically-straightened hair are frenemies. Every seventh day when I wash my hair, they get along great in a shampoo Shangri-la. But the rest of the week, I employ a shower cap to keep the steam from undoing the silky straightness. I have been wearing shower caps since I was a child, and I’ve tried them CONTINUE READING

Get Catty With Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses

Tatcha, I'm So Glad I Gotcha


I'm home on maternity leave, so I spend an inordinate amount of time nursing my daughter, burping her and changing her diapers - all the while, watching hours of QVC. I don't know what it is, but I am mesmerized by QVC demonstrations. If I'm channel surfing and I happen to land on QVC, it's damn near impossible for CONTINUE READING

 Grooming Guru To Visit DCTony Sosnick, the grooming guru behind Anthony Logistics for Men, is coming to Washington, DC on Friday, November 16th to share his shaving expertise and give skin consultations at the Blue Mercury store in Dupont Circle.

Grooming Gifts for the Holidays – With holiday season approaching, subtle ways the ladies can be a positive influence without offending.

How to Winter-ize Your Skin Routine – Tips on switching over everything from your moisturizer and general routine from the hot humidity of summer to the cold and dry days of winter.

5 Steps to the Perfect Shave – From the temperature of the water to the direction of your blade, what every guy needs to know.

Shaving Tips for Girls, from a Grooming Guru – Just because shorts and miniskirts have gone into hibernation doesn’t mean your razor should follow suit; Tony will share his expertise on the steps to get a super smooth shave.

The Dupont Circle Blue Mercury store is located at 1619 Connecticut Avenue NW. For more information about this event, call 202.462.1300.

Taking It All Off

sleeping+in+makeup Taking It All Off
You’ve been told time and time again – don’t sleep in your makeup. But we’ve all done it. I can’t even begin to count the number of times I’ve stumbled home from a long day at work (okay, okay…more like a long night at the club/bar) and passed out on my bed without removing my makeup.

But the truth is that sleeping in your makeup is a major beauty faux pas. Skin repairs and renews itself while you’re asleep, which is why it’s so important to wash off your makeup (as well as the daily dirt and grime that builds up on the skin) before your pretty head hits the pillow. Going to sleep with makeup on increases your odds of waking up with clogged pores, or worse – a pimple! Doesn’t it make sense to take 2 minutes to wash your face at night, rather than spend 2 or more days treating a blemish?

If you don’t trust yourself to be responsible, make it easy on yourself. Wear mineral makeup, like Bare Minerals or Sheer Cover. Or use makeup remover wipes; Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes dissolve all traces of dirt, oil, and make-up – even waterproof mascara – but are gentle enough for contact lens wearers and those with sensitive skin.
