Quote du Jour: Anna Wintour

You either know fashion or you don't.

It's always about timing. If it's too soon, no one understands. If it's too late, everyone's forgotten. 

Create your own style...let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable for others.

K√©rastase Nutritive Nectar Thermique Protect- Work this leave-in cream through towel-dried hair to repair damage from chemical processing and protect your strands from the effects of heat styling.

ModelCo Berry Pink SHINE Ultra Lip Gloss- This Australian brand's winning gloss coats lips with subtle color. Plus, the built-in mirror allows for easy on-the-go application.

Thymes Naia Body Lotion- Lemon pulp and yerba mate extract give this lightweight moisturizer its delightful, energizing scent. For an instant pick-me-up, smooth it on after your morning shower.

Beauty Extra: Thymes Lotus Santal Body LotionWe love this shea-enriched hydrator for its calming woodsy scent and truly non-greasy feel. Smooth it on post-shower while skin is slightly damp.
