She was beautiful, mysterious, voluptuous, a sex icon, a hopeless romantic, overtly sexual for her time and most importantly gone to way to soon. Almost fifty years after her death, Marilyn Monroe has never been more present in our lives. We were given a glimpse at a part of her life that was made into film, My Week With Marilyn, played by Michelle Williams; her signature red lip and pin curls are constantly seen throughout one fashion spread after another, and in a wonderful show of respect, Marilyn Monroe was named the face of the Cannes Film Festival for their 65th anniversary. She is truly timeless and her great taste in skincare has not been forgotten either…

Skincare brand Erno Laszlo has been taking care of the skin of classic Hollywood dating all the way back to 1939. Dr. Erno Laszlo, a Budapest cosmetologist treated Greta Garbo, Katharine Hepburn, and basically all the glamour girls of that era entrusted him to keep their skin silver screen worthy. Perhaps none more so than Miss Monroe who after her death, an Erno Laszlo skin cream was found on her night stand. 

With the history of the skincare brand now transcending current times, it's only befitting it pay homage to it's old Hollywood history and Marilyn by bringing out the Erno Laszlo Hollywood Collection. With 5 items in the range tailor made and specifically formulated to address the signs of premature aging, a person can wear it and feel just a little bit closer to these screen sirens who wore it before us. With 85 years of experience behind it and a timeless legacy that continues to this day, we're thrilled to offer our clients a little piece of Hollywood with the Erno Laszlo Hollywood Collection

And to Marilyn.....we're so glad you're back.

RGB Cosmetics Dew Nail Lacquer

Posted on 03/05/2012

RGB Cosmetics latest nail lacquer, Dew, is sure to get some pastel lovers hearts a flutter. I've always loved and am on the lookout for the perfect "Tiffany and Co" robin's egg shade and never know if it's more blue or green. Surely it has to be somewhere in between but Dew is kind of similar, just more of a muted version. It's a very pale, mint green that is so popular right now and surely one of the perfect shades to rock this spring. If the color reminds you of an Easter egg you decorated as a child, then it's on trend for this season. As winter slowly starts to fade away, it's time to slowly add in pops of color to your nails like this one!

Tanda Pearl Ionic Teeth Whitening

Posted on 03/05/2012

Tanda light therapy has revolutionized how we fight off signs of aging and eliminate acne but their latest product targets a part of the body that is known to be one of the first things that a person notices, their smile, and the unfortunate discoloration of teeth in that smile, that is less than appealing. The Tanda Pearl Ionic Teeth Whitening System is revolutionary in that it uses ionic technology to give you professionally whiter teeth in just five to ten treatments. Many teeth whitening systems that use light such as Zoom has to be done under the supervision of a dental professional, whereas the Tanda Pearl is enamel safe, built for at home use and has zero sensitivity or irritation. Dental whitening can take many hours of discomfort while this treatment only needs to be done for 5 minutes a day in the comfort of your own home and on your own schedule.

Les Tai Tai Compact MirrorIf we had to pick just one beauty tool to bring in our purse on a deserted island, we’d choose the Model Mirror by Les Tai Tai.

What to Look for in a Quality Hair Dryer

Posted on 03/05/2012

T3 Featherweight LuxeThe right hair dryer can mean the difference between smooth, sleek locks and dried, damaged tresses. The more often you use a hair dryer, the more the quality of your styling tool matters. The logic follows – the better the dryer, the healthier your hair. A quality hair dryer such as those made by T3 reduces the amount of heat your hair is exposed to and saves you from constantly buying expensive conditioning treatments.

Here are some essential features to look for in a quality hair dryer from T3 or any other high-end brand:

Ionic technology. Your hair carries a natural positive charge; ions have a negative charge. When you use a hair dryer with ionic technology, the charge in your hair becomes neutral. The result is smooth hair that has less frizz.
