I was honored to find out this week that TheBeautyGirl.com has been named one of the 50 top beauty blogs! Thanks to you guys, I can do what I love, and I hope you’ve gained something (a laugh, inspiration, product recommendation…) along the way.
I’m honored to have been featured in The New York Times. I was included in a story about the trend of personal beauty shoppers in last week’s Thursday Styles section. Here’s a snippet!
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
P.S. Outdoor Hands is offering an exclusive 20% discount when you enter the code “windy city live.” Happy shopping!
Also, we ran out of time for my last solution (such is the reality of live TV), so if you’re in Chicago and need to book a last-minute beauty treatment like a haircut or mani, you can go to prettyquick.com. You enter the service you want and within 5 minutes they’ll send you about 10 different salons and spas that have availability, and you pick the appointment you want to book. How cool!

I was back at the TODAY show this week, but this time around I was on the 4th hour with Hoda and Kathie Lee. I had a blast with them and even got my own jingle! They are like the aunt or friend we’d all love to have — fun, supportive and a little bit cuckoo in the best way. Here’s the segment in case you missed it along with some behind-the-scenes photos.

The night before the segment I stopped by the studio to set up the products with the prop stylist. Here I am sitting on the famous TODAY show couch.

Loved chatting with TODAY show style editor Bobbie Thomas.
I’m back in Chicago after a whirlwind work trip (3 cities in 3 days)! Here’s the TV segment I did this morning in St. Louis. And I had an hour to kill before my flight so I put on my tourist hat and went to the top of the arch. The structure really is breathtaking as is the view from the top. I have the photos to prove it. See below.
