site a warm and cozy couch and let me share all of the tips,
tricks, & tools that I have with you.

We’ve all accepted it: shampoo first, conditioner second…But in recent years one step “cleansing conditioners” have popped up on the market (led by Wen, followed by others at the drugstore). If you still haven’t wrapped your head around that concept, then you’ll want to sit down for this one There’s an emerging trend called reverse washing, where you condition FIRST and shampoo SECOND. A popular topic amongst beauty bloggers, and now a product line from Kerastase, fans of the routine say it’s great for fine and/or greasy hair because you get a dose of healthy moisture via rich conditioner, but little residue thanks to the follow-up shampoo.

These days, I count my blessings for so many reasons and yesterday was humbled yet again by my TODAY show family who threw me an adorable “Blue is the New Pink” shower for my baby-boy-to-be. The one and only Kathie Lee Gifford was beyond gracious, offering to have us party at her place, and the folks at minted provided the loveliest decorations I could have imagined. We all had a fantastic time and I couldn’t feel luckier than I do to have such great people helping me welcome my little man into the world.

Trendsetters like Blake Lively (in Coco Flamingo Rose Gold pumps by Sophia Webster) have been rocking the statement shoes recently because they are a great way to add instant polish to a simple outfit, or as a substitute for your jewelry.

One handbag that changes colors to match your mood/wardrobe, charges your phone, and lights up to alert you to phone calls (and more) may sound too good to be true, yet the folks at VanDerWaals have recently introduced exactly this. The built-in patented technology gives you control over customizing your bag however you see fit, all through their free app. The bags are a bit pricey, but definitely a conversation piece. xx

Last night, many of the world’s biggest stars and designers convened at the 2015 Met Gala in New York City under the theme “China, Through the Looking Glass”. While everyone had their eyes on the gowns gracing the carpet, I found my interest piqued by the polished pants some of my fave ladies chose to wear.
Take a peek at these masculine-influenced ensembles:
• Diane Kruger in a two piece embroidered Chanel
• Sienna Miller in a custom, sequined Thakoon tuxedo
• Cara Delevingne looking edgy in a cut-out Stella McCartney jumpsuit, paired with the addition of body art.

In honor of UV awareness month (and specifically today, Melanoma Monday) I wanted to share a smart beauty collection called Scalisi Skincare. The founder, Jill Scalisi, is a friend of a friend who worked on Wall Street for 20 years before receiving a frightening skin cancer diagnosis. After treatment, Jill noticed that a dependable anti-aging moisturizer with SPF 30 didn’t exist, so she partnered with scientists to create one (and in the process earned herself a CEW “Cosmetic Executive Women” award nomination Check it out here — and please stay safe in the sun! xx
