My go-to hairstyle is a loose, soft wave, which is a touch more polished than beach hair. The style transitions seamlessly from day to night and the best part about these waves is that they look great on the first and second day. After experimenting with different curling irons and techniques, I’ve mastered an easy step-by-step routine that takes about 15 minutes.

My makeup routine stays pretty consistent, whether I’m headed to a meeting, a class, or a social event with friends. I get excellent results every time because I’ve picked products in soft, flattering shades. Here’s a look at my trusty go-tos:

California Wedding: Packing List

Caroline, one of our brand relationship managers, is currently in sunny California right now attending her brother’s wedding. We’re envious! Not only of the gorgeous weather, but of all the fun frolicking she’ll be doing with her family and all the delicious wedding cake she’ll be eating. Here’s what she brought with her:

The Non-Glam New Year’s Eve Trip: Packing List

I love New York 364 days of the year. The one day that I can’t stand being in the city? New Year’s Eve. This year, I’m escaping to sunny Los Angeles, where I have absolutely nothing planned, save for a trip to Flore Vegan for my new favorite salad and some quality time at the Silverlake Farmer’s Market. Here’s what I’m bringing for my low-key trip.

Nuxe Multi-Use Dry Oil with Golden Shimmer: My arms and legs are looking preeetty pasty these days, which is fine when you’re all bundled up in NYC, but not fine when you’re in palm tree land. This silky oil takes care of dryness instantly and gives skin a subtle sheen.

BY Terry Hyaluronic Face Glow: Lately, I’ve been skipping foundation in favor of this hydrating tinted primer. It has hyaluronic acid, one of my favorite skincare ingredients (it loads up your skin with moisture!), and light-reflecting particles that give your face a diffused glow. Oh yeah, and it smells amazing, too.

Packing List: Hollywood!

Who has packing tips for me? My overstuffed suitcase.

Ok, I’m not actually going to Hollywood. But I am going to L.A. (weather permitting, fingers crossed) for a video shoot with a few of our brand partners. Assuming I get off the ground (again, knock on wood), here’s what I’m bringing.

1. Amika mini hair dryer: This is part of Amika’s Giraffe Go Go Travel Set, which we’re adding to the shop in September. Besides the too-cute print, this little guy is powerful enough to dry my hair in under ten minutes.

2. New Balance 10: Part of New Balance’s new Minimus line, these trail sneaks are extremely light with a semi-stiff, flexi sole. I feel like Flash Gordon in them, even if I move more like a snail.

3. Tanya Anguiniga Studio Rope Bracelet: Katia ordered this amazingly oversize bracelet for me off Fab (not avail anymore, sorry!) and at first, I thought it was way too big. I was obviously wrong. It’s amazing. (Also amazing: Fab.)

4. TSA-compliant makeup bag: All of my current essentials, and then some: Dr. Jart Beauty Balm; One Love Organics Easy Does It Cleanser; Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint; and more.

5. Warby Parker Prestons: We had a fun trunk show/happy hour with the Warby Park kids last week and I swear the entire BB team now owns either Preston glasses or Everett sunnies. I feel smarter just wearing mine.

6. J. Crew belt: Can’t go anywhere without a skinny metallic belt.

P.S. Completely unrelated, but I’m loving Deborah Lippmann’s Lara’s Theme — a juicy orange that’s for the last few weeks of summer!
