Keep Calm and Stay Blonde!

Last week, I received the most lovely email from the team at Patrice Vinci Salon (91 Newbury St.) inviting me in to experience their award winning color services! How could I say no?

So, on Wednesday afternoon, I found myself in her sunny salon above Ralph Lauren on Newbury, being greeted by the friendliest staff imaginable. My hair was in dire need of some love but Patrice wasn't intimidated or overwhelmed by my lion's mane! She's worked with some major celebrities (like Ellen Pompeo and Kevin Bacon) but she's so warm and down to earth that you'd never know it. In fact, Patrice and her staff seem to treat every person who stops in as a VIP.

Blonde hair is an undertaking that requires a lot of waiting for the color to lift so I was able to watch a lot of clients on their way out. Consistently, every woman, no matter who their stylist was, seemed to glow. Sure, any talented stylist can make a woman look good but I think it's the positive vibes and warm atmosphere at Patrice Vinci that really makes a woman feel good too.

Around Town in Athleta's City Pants Collection

It's no secret that I'm always running late so when it comes to clothes I love any piece that can double as something else. So Athleta's La Viva Capri (from their City Pants collection) are perfect since they took me directly from the gym to brunch this weekend just by swapping my sneakers for heels. Okay, so there is a chance that I didn't actually make it to the gym but I was super comfortable running around town!

My Journey to Michael Kors Glam Jasmine

Boston Fashion, Boston Fashion Blog, beauty, beauty products, Michael Kors Glam Jasmine, Fragrance stories, Michael Kors Glam Jasmine Review,

At some point in my childhood, I managed to acquire quite the collection of perfumes. CK One and Tommy Girl maintained prominent positions on my vanity (it was the 90s after all) along with various body splashes from Bath & Bodyworks and, the epitome of middle school awesomeness, Gap's Dream. I sprayed and splashed them liberally, often dancing through a curtain of mist to ensure that every inch of myself carried the scent all day. I imagined myself to be a lot like Elizabeth Taylor entering a room with a cloud of glamour and leaving a seductive trail in my wake.

I must have stunk.
