The Airplane Kit

New York City was a tundra disaster. Before we left, the streets were a mess. Walking to work took everything out of me. Everything was covered with ice, and manhole fires were rampant. Steam from beneath the pavement burned my eyes. No one knew where to walk and pedestrians were running into one another because neither were able to commit to a clear path. Because there wasn’t one. It was a modern day Gotham City, where the villain was ice rather than the Joker.
These are the reasons we left the frozen tundra for sunnier climates east. Welcome to Tel Aviv. (more…)

10 Drug Store Favorites

Drug Store Beauty 3

One of my favorite pastimes is reading magazines. It always has been. Something about all the beautiful models in beautiful clothes page after page has always given me such inspiration. Magazines give me hair inspiration, makeup inspiration, fashion inspiration, and much more. I still buy the hard copies of magazines vs. reading them on the internet which I am sure seems prehistoric at this point, however there is something to turning the pages… But, not much. (more…)

Eye on the Prize


My feelings for eyeliner are still going strong. Looking forward to testing out some new looks during Fashion Week. Luckily, the snow has me trapped inside with plenty of time to practice. Have a great weekend & stay warm!


Acceptance vs. Denial: Fall Favorites

Fall Beauty Favorites

For Noa,

Because she doesn’t have to live in denial…
So I am trying to live in acceptance!!!

Denial. Denial is a wonderful condition in which to live… not always, but sometimes. Labor Day weekend marks the end of summer. However, given the industry that I work in, directly after Labor Day weekend I am thrust (and not a good type of thrust) into New York Fashion Week. By the time all of this slows down and I have a second to accept that Summer is in fact over, reality hits me first. Hits me right up against the face when I look in the mirror. Everything I worked on over the last four months is fading fast. The color of my skin, the clear complexion, my natural highlights, my summer glow (if you will) is slowly but surely going to shit. Every morning. Right in front of my very own eyes. I wish I could live in denial.


The Same Ole Story

Chuck and BlaireFor my Beach Bitches,

Because Athena & Nayla are super summer fun…

So get the weekend party started!!!

It’s the same story over and over again. The outsider looking in… Romeo was a Montague and longed to be a Capulet. He Literally died to be part of their world for the love of his life. Nick was always wandering around tying to convince the world he belonged at the grand Gatsby parties. Dan Humphrey was so in love with the lives of privilege and wealth that when he knew he could never truly be a part of it he wrote himself into their story… Holden Caulifield didn’t realize how much he wanted to be part of their world until he was gone. He warns readers that telling others about your own experiences will lead to miss the people who shared them.


Mascara On The Run

For Everyday Life,
Because we are always on the run..
So not everything should be!


Away We Went

For Time Away,

Because everyone deserves some…
So what to take along!


The Right Note

For Justin Bieber,
Because he is eye candy…
So you can have eyes that sing beauty!
As told to Behind the Mirror by Kerry McCarthy.
