From the desk of the b-glowing beauty concierge, I am here to tell you about my latest and greatest beauty find!

When talking about traveling from New York City to Paris, Carrie Bradshaw said she wanted to arrive “stunning and impossibly fresh,” which perfectly sums up our goals for airline travel. That can sometimes be a challenge though, thanks to recirculated, dry air that parches skin and being packed in so close to your neighbors you can feel a little sweaty. These carry-on necessities are just as important as your passport, and won't get nabbed by TSA (each one is under the 3.4oz-maximum rule still in effect for liquids, aerosols, gels, and creams). They may be small in size, but they pack a major punch.Read More »
Ladies, it is “tea time” at b-glowing, and I’m not talking about an afternoon cuppa. By Terry’s TEA to TAN is an all-over sunless tan product that gives a transparent bronze wherever it is applied. Unlike powder and cream, this see-through liquid lays seamlessly over the skin, and looks totally natural. You’ll never experience that shady orange sheen that some other products leave behind. Like a lip stain, it is built to last, but unlike a fake tan, it washes off so your skin can breathe and start fresh the next day.Read More »
This Bastille Day, we're celebrating the smoldering, sexy, glamour of French It-Girls—think Brigitte Bardot's voluminous hair, smudgy black eyeliner, and perfect skin. Or the effortless style of Marion Cotillard, Catherine Deneuve, and Inès de La Fressange. The look is incredibly self-assured, come-hither, and never high-maintenance, the kind of beauty that seems like you just woke up after the best night of your life. We combed the coolest French companies for authentic products to get the style stateside. Here's how to put together a chic, classic French look—a baguette jauntily poking out of your bicycle basket is optional.Read More »
Acne, dryness and wrinkles, oh my! Ever wonder what causes our skin to misbehave even with the use of high-end skincare?
Just like our lives, our skin requires a certain balance to function properly. When the acid mantle (the top layer of the epidermis) is disturbed, our pH level changes, which can cause skin conditions such as dermatitis, eczema and rosacea . Our skin is naturally designed to fight infection and environmental stresses and its ability to do so is affected by its pH level.Read More »
Be it in the arts, music, food, beauty, or somewhere in-between, our She Glows features celebrate women who are carving out a niche for themselves, and doing it fearlessly. We caught up with the bad-ass and amazingly humble Jenn Louis, owner of two Portland hot-spots, Lincoln Restaurant and Sunshine Tavern. Recognized by Food & Wine Magazine as one of the Best New Chefs of 2012 and author of new cookbook, Pasta By Hand (with a glowing forward by the one and only Mario Batali), our conversation touched on the necessary evolution of feminism, what it’s like to be a female chef, and the value of lifelong learning and positivity. Jenn is an outstanding example of a successful and thoughtful human actualizing her dreams. Read on, and be inspired!Read More »
It's undeniable: the salon blowout is a heavenly (and addictive) experience. Walk in with lackluster locks, walk out with bombshell tresses.

And we at b-glowing are ALL about luxurious self care!Read More »

We can learn a lot from the partnership of Susanne Pruitt and Shelley Callaghan, founders of the Seattle-based home fragrance brand Antica Farmacista. They have not only built a leading brand that’s expanded into bath and body products, candles, personal perfume, bubble bath and bath salts—but they’ve done so as best friends. When Susanne and Shelley first forged their business relationship in 2003, they made a pact that their friendship was number one. They agreed that if they ever felt discord with one another, they would close the business.Read More »
