After years of describing who I am & what I do, I had to boil it
down to "Professional Girlfriend". I hope you'll consider this
site a warm and cozy couch and let me share all of the tips,
tricks, & tools that I have with you.
Love Bobbie, #progirl

I’ve been sitting on this summer secret for a few months, which means I’ve had the time to really test-drive Tide & Whirlpool’s latest collaboration, Swash. One step closer to Judy Jetson’s futuristic life, the ‘express clothing care system’ is almost like having a mini dry cleaner in your house. The unit is slim enough to slide into a closet, the corner of your bedroom, laundry room, etc. aims to ‘swash’ your clothes in just 10 minutes. It’s pretty simple, you hang a garment inside, pop in a single use pod , and with occasional exceptions, it really did restore the fit, remove odors and wrinkles. I was impressed (especially with my delicates- knits, embellished items, denim) and fyi… although I was sent the system, I was not paid to endorse it, nor asked to. It would be an investment at $499 (swash.com), but ideal for someone who wants to extend the wear of items between washes or dry-cleaning.
Cult favorite Kerastase has recently unveiled a new regime, one that goes beyond the surface and aims to also change how your hair moves and behaves. To develop the new collection, appropriately called Discipline, researchers took rapid images of strands in motion and measured their every movement. While the formula promotes a faster drying time and anti-frizz benefits, the results also offer bounce, volume along with smoothness – a rare combo. ($39 & up, kerastase.com).
This morning Kathie Lee Gifford mentioned on air at the TODAY show that she liked the perfume I wear, so I wanted to make sure to get the info out there for any interested parties! It’s Perfect Veil, by Sarah Horowitz, characterized as “clean, subtle and provocative.”
Cult favorite haircare line Oribe is releasing two perfumes inspired the signature scent of their products. Co-founder Tev Finger said he heard “more about the fragrance almost more than everything else,” so the jump was a no brainer. Available in September at Cote d’Azur salons for $85.
To be honest, at first I was just intrigued by the container this yogurt came in, but now I’m a little obsessed. The Australian style snack (yes, another “country” yogurt) is actually a really good treat to help you get through the day. Filled with protein, creamy in texture and tastes SO good.
For those who can never find the exact right blend to suit their hair needs, Concoction.co.uk may be able to help. Pick a base shampoo & conditioner, then choose superserum shots to add in (straighting, volume, scents, boosters for brunettes, redheads, etc). Then they’ll mix it all up and mail it to you. Genius, right?

Like fruit roll-ups for adults without a bunch of ingredients I can’t pronounce, Matt’s Munchies are probably the most commonly eaten snack in my office right now. The flat, thin fruit pieces are pretty low in calories for those counting (35-90 per pack), and they’re very chewy, so they keep you busy for a while. A helpful treat to help you curb that desire to eat a can of Funfetti frosting, box of cookies or pint of Ben & Jerry’s.

Women always seem to ask what lipstick I’m wearing, and since there’s no such thing as a “beauty secret” in my opinion, I’m happy to spread the buzz about what I use! In a pinch, I dab concealer on my lips for a nude base and then apply whatever basic pink gloss I can find first. Recently, however, I found a lip color that eliminates the layering step: gloMinerals gloss in Pink Blossom (bonus: proceeds from sales go to the National Breast Cancer Foundation!). Kathie Lee Gifford has become a fan of the shade as well, and lately I even find myself passing the tubes around the makeup room at TODAY. So there you have it!
