Lisa Kudrow's Dos and Don'ts

November 30, 2014

While reading my December issue of Glamour I was so excited to see Lisa Kudrow reveal her Dos and Don'ts. My love for Lisa began while watching Friends — my favorite TV show. I love Phoebe's quirkiness and how she never takes herself too seriously. (Cue the episode when she jogs with Rachel). I think there is a little bit of a Phoebe in all of us. I love what she says about not trying Botox and her friendship with Courtney Cox and Jennifer Aniston.

I am also loving Lisa in HBO's The Comeback. I remember when this show premiered ten years ago and thinking that a show like this had never been done before. But now the show is back and Valerie Cherish is causing mayhem in Hollywood. Can't wait to see what kind of situations she gets herself into in this season. Take a look at Lisa in Glamour above.

Are you watching The Comeback?

Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm

November 19, 2014

After leaving my internship for the day I decided to stop by my nearest Duane Reade to purchase some things that I needed. Suddenly something caught my eye — a small table filled with Nuxe products. I've heard great things about this brand. It's French and I am obsessed with French beauty products. One product in particular that seems to be a cult favorite among women is Nuxe's Reve de Miel Lip Balm.

I wanted to try this lip balm so bad but the $19 price tag didn't sound so inviting. Either way I gave in and bought it. I left the drugstore feeling regret for spending the money but excited to open it and try it on. One of the main things that I've read in online reviews about this lip balm is how thick it really is. They're not lying. The texture is thick and creamy but can easily be applied to the lips. I actually like that it is thick because it feels very moisturizing. 

This stuff also smells amazing. It smells just like lemon! The dark yellow color may seem a little off-putting but it does get the job done. The package even indicates that it's been tested for effectiveness in Canada's extreme cold. Made with honey, plant oils, and shea butter, this balm is a no-brainer. It also doesn't hurt to know that one of these bad boys is sold every 28 seconds throughout the world. Nuts!

This is my first Nuxe product and I'm already eager to try some of their other stuff. The salesperson in Duane Reade kindly offered me a sample of Nuxe's signature fragrance, Prodigieux. It smells beautiful! And now I'll be adding that to my beauty wishlist.

Have you tried any products by Nuxe?

Now Playing: Leighton Meester's Heartstrings

November 1, 2014

As a huge Gossip Girl and Blair Waldorf fan it seemed about right to check out Leighton Meester's debut album, Heartstrings. And what a wonderful surprise it is. Her nine track album is a great departure from her "Somebody to Love" and "Good Girls Go Bad" days. Don't get me wrong pop suits her well but this...this is so much better! Filled with smooth hooks, soft melodies, and Meester's delicate but good-sounding voice, Heartstrings is a winner.

The first single coyly named after the album is powerfully written. "Had to save my own self from all of your evil games and now it ain't the same." Is it too soon to say the song does indeed tug at my heartstrings? Something about this song and the rest of the album really relaxes me and makes me feel cozy. To me it sounds folky, acoustic, and like an instant classic. I applaud Leighton for releasing such a great quality album in the days where booties and "I've been drinking" is all people are listening to. What a breath of fresh air! Take a look at Leighton's video for Heartstrings below:

Any fans of Leighton Meester's music?
