You know the story—you go through a rough breakup, you start to move on, put away the ice cream, go out again and…run into your ex. There’s almost nothing worse. But while you can’t really prepare emotionally for seeing him, you can look—for lack of a better word— really… READ MORE
It’s the end of summer—so sad—and my garden is totally overflowing with delicious, sun-ripe tomatoes. What to do with all of them? I love an easy summer gazpacho. It couldn’t be simpler to make, it’s super healthy and of course it tastes so good. Here’s… READ MORE
The third in a recurring series about how to use the tools in your makeup kit like a pro. A few simple tips can make all the difference in getting the most out of your products—and of course, looking your best.
Before You Start
Make sure your brushes are in good condition and clean—a good set of brushes should last several… READ MORE
There’s a fine line between Beach Beauty—think sun-kissed skin, tousled hair—and Beach Disaster—splotchy sunburn, dry hair. Here are some essentials that I pack in my beach bag to guarantee I have a gorgeous day at the beach.
Before You Go
Lisa Curran Bathing Suit: I love this classic, simple tank bikini that offers a little more coverage than a normal two-piece, but feels just as comfortable.
Buffing Grains: Made from Adzuki Beans, this natural exfoliant combines perfectly with a foaming cleanser to make my skin glow.
Protective Face Base SPF 50: When I’m preparing to spend a day in the sun, I like to apply sunblock as I would moisturizer. This way, it has time to absorb and I rarely miss a spot.
Sunscreen: This should be a no-brainer. I love Bullfrog sunscreen because it absorbs quickly and stays put all day—I put it on my hands and chest twice, since those areas burn easily. Again, apply before you go to avoid missing hard-to-reach spots.

I really believe that our places of work matter—I don’t feel productive unless I’m in a space that’s well-lit, comfortable and inspiring. I thought a lot about these qualities when setting up Bobbi Brown Headquarters in Soho. I wanted a space that would… READ MORE
What feels better than a great workout? Lately, I’ve been loving the classes at my local gym, Adventure Health & Fitness, which was started by fitness gurus Michael Smith and Laura Powell. It’s super-challenging, incredibly fun and makes me feel strong and confident. We sat down with half of the AHF… READ MORE
I love shoes. In particular, I love shoes that give me some extra height (I’m short, in case you haven’t noticed). And while I adore my YSL Tributes, my current obsession are platform sneakers and sandals—in other words, really comfy shoes that still add an extra inch, or… READ MORE
I’ve worked really hard to cut sugary, processed food out of my diet—but I still love a delicious, healthful dessert. The summer is my favorite time for making healthy desserts because there’s so much amazing fresh fruit available—things like watermelon, ripe strawberries and… READ MORE
As a young makeup artist in New York City, I was always on the lookout for lipstick that looked like lips—I wanted something that was pretty and natural, that would make women feel comfortable in their own skin. After years of frustrated searching, I… READ MORE
I love summer, for a lot of reasons, but one big one is that I get to start eating from my garden again. It feels so good to get my hands dirty planting, weeding and picking delicious, clean food that goes straight to my dinner table. The more I learn… READ MORE
My hair obsession started with Cher in the 1970s—long, thick and super shiny. I could never figure out how she got it like that—in retrospect, clearly a case of nature over nurture. Still, I slept with my hair rolled around orange juice… READ MORE
People who know me know I’m crazy for organization. Maybe because (like most of us) I’m so busy and the creative mind gets quite cluttered. I have a need for simplicity. I’m always looking for new ideas and longingly stare at the Container Store… READ MORE
