The finale of my trip to Barcelona was a gala with Grammy winner Shakira. Held at a beautiful mansion just outside the city, the evening began with cocktails and appetizers overlooking the gardens. We then went inside for a question and answer session that was moderated by hilarious celebrity stylist Robert Verdi. Read More

It took an afternoon of hair, makeup and a shopping spree at Ann Taylor to create my final look. The whole experience was documented should you want to do it yourself.
I started the beautification at Anthony Cristiano Salon located in the Trump Hotel.
First was hair. I wanted an effortless style with a bit of edge for daytime. We decided a messy bun was the perfect fit.
The stylist spritzed in Klorane Dry Shampoo to give my locks more oomph and hold. Then she pulled my hair into a pony and organically wrapped the tail into a bun securing with bobbi pins.
Next was makeup. To achieve “daytime chic” we went for fresh skin, light lips and defined but not heavy lashes. We did cheat a little adding a few individual lashes for the photos.
Here’s a list of the products used to create the look:
Benefit They’re Real mascara; IT Cosmetics Brow Pencil; By Terry Light Perfecting Foundation Brush; Pur Minerals CC Cream; Benefit Fakeup; Nuxe Oil; By Terry Baume de Rose; Naked Princess Gloss. P.S. These are some of the brands in the latest Birchbox.
The final stop was Ann Taylor. I perused the racks looking for the perfect outfit. I ended up pairing this high-low skirt with the leopard print cap sleeve knit tee. The tortoise necklace added brightness and texture and the cage black booties kept the vibe cool and youthful
Here’s the final look!

I had so much fun appearing on The Style network’s Chicagolicious last night. I watch a lot of reality TV, so getting to be in an episode and seeing what really goes on behind-the-scenes was a treat. I have to say, there are a ton of cameras. Surprisingly, they’re not in your face. Sure, you know they’re there (always behind you), but they’re easy to forget about at the same time. Another interesting fact: You’ll never hear the word “action” called by the director like you do on movie sets. Instead the director lets you know when the cameras are rolling. Apparently this detail is meant to seem like they’re simply capturing the situation that’s happening at that moment rather than filming a scene for a TV show. For this episode I participated in three days of filming and wanted to share some photos I took during my experience. P.S. If you missed it, click here to see when my episode (Chicagolicious: Hair Battle Royale) will air again. Read More
