I had the honor to work with some pretty awesome talents including make-up artist Rashad Taylor (of YSL) and photographer Jacqueline Iannacone at this recent Brooklyn rooftop photo shoot. We entered the first picture in the REVOLVEclothing Fashion Spring Style + Chictopia: Fresh Looks, Fresh Faces Contest and were named a top entry as well as voted a top favorite! We were also awarded with a Revolve Spring Style Award: Best Suited for Everyday. Congrats and thanks to all that were involved!
Last night's grand opening event for Soho's newest, and by farrrrrrr hottest salon, Lali Lali, was an absolute blast! I hadn't seen the space since it was under construction when we conducted our photo shoot there back in December, but WOW, WOW, WOW did it turn out aaaamazzzzingggggg! Lali Lali entertained us with a fashion show that was broadcasted live on NYCLiveRock.com, and for good reason. Partnered up with LF boutiques, the runway show, which featured their to-die-for spring/summer 2010 collection, was true to LF's brand: young, ahead of the curve trend-wise, and superrrrrrr fun! We were served deliciously decadent hor d'oeuvres, classic red and white wines, and were even treated to massages! Bravo, Lali Lali, bravo for an out-of-this-world party! And honestly, I cannot think of a more sick or tottttttallly chic place to go for hair and make-up styling. Not only does the salon boast that it will be the home to some world renowned hair stylist, but overall, let's be serious (you'll see from the pictures below), this place is clearly the epitome of what you'd expect from a real salon in NYC. It's beyond compare.
In conjunction with the Lali Lali Salon Gallery Opening this week, we decide to spoil you with another giveaway (you can still enter our SATC Tour giveaway, which will run until May 24!

Thanks to Misikko, a company that specializes in both Professional Flat Irons and Hair Dryers (two things that are absolute necessities for alllllll girls), we were lucky enough to test out the Hana Elite. As one of their top selling premier products it seriously, we kid you not, worked wonders. Our Belle, B, who frequently complains about her extremely thick and wavy hair named it "thebest iron I have ever used...and I have used A LOT of hair irons!" She further commented, "it heats up quickly, was gentle on my hair, and best of all did not leave a trace of that awful burning hair stench! I definitely recommend the Hana Elite and will certainly be using it as my flat iron from here on out."
