Guerlain’s Bullet #futuretrendpretiction

Not yet a trend but likely to be in the future. The Guerlain lipstick is customized for you.
Something that has likely not shown up yet on your social media feed caught my attention the other day when a friend showed me her lipstick. The tube was an unusual shape, almost looked like a large bullet. When I asked her about it she told me that it was by the company Guerlain and she customized the tube in the store. I knew I had to check it out more.
On the Guerlain website you can choose between 30 different shades and 15 different cases of the Rouge G De Guerlain, also known as “The Bullet”. All cases have a double mirror that allows for easy application anywhere. The lipstick itself is made up of plant-based polymers and silver microcrystals that create a luminous, long-lasting color. The lipstick will not dry out your lips thanks to the jojoba, a southwestern North American nut, and mango butt er that nourish your lips throughout the day. The first of it’s kind, the customizable Roug…

Post Workout Habits

While working out is always on trend, lately what you do before and after your workout has become even more popular. There are many ways that people have been taking care of their bodies outside of working out but lately there are two ways that have been trending over Instagram.
First, Cryofeul located in TriBeca on Colby street. Cryotherapy chambers rapidly cool the body, accelerating muscle recovery and skin rejuvenation. Cryogenically chilled air reduces inflammation and stimulates collagen production. The reduction of inflammation helps to accelerate injury recovery. Collagen helps reduce signs of aging and cellulite. You can see these chambers on the Instagrams of super models such as Karlie Kloss and GiGi Hadid who calls it her beauty “secret weapon” according to NYC & PT. Cryo Skin 2.0 is a new form of Cryotherapy that naturally destroys fat cells, remove cellulite, and reduce signs of aging. CryoSkin 2.o is $350 per session and full body Cryotherapy is $75 per session.

James Harden Inspires Y3 Designer in New Collaberation

Y3 teams up with basketball player James Harden to create a line that the ladies and gents can love.

There have been many celebrity collaborations over the years of fashion; Rosie H-W for Paige, GiGi Hadid for Tommy Hilfiger, Victoria Beckham for Target and many more. Last Friday, a new contender hit the shelves at the self proclaimed, sport style pioneers, Y3. According to GQ, this isn't your average collaberation. Y3 brand designer, Yohji Yamamoto, not only worked with Harden while creating his newest line, he inspired Yamamoto. The collection, which includes an oversized bomber jacket, socks, tailored shirt, cropped pants, and sneakers is mostly stark black with a bright pink flower seen throughout. There is also a t-shirt and a tank top that come in a navy and white pattern, which stick out from the rest of the collection. Known as "The King of Flowers", the Botan flower symbolizes honor, respect, good fortune, bravery and nobility in Japanese culture.

(Ou)R House

As I'm sure not many of you know, I am in two long distance relationships. Two of my favorite people live in Baltimore, Maryland. One is my boyfriend who plays basketball for Loyola Maryland and the other is my longtime manager. Due to these long distance relationships I have been able to experience a lot of the Baltimore cuisine. One of my favorite places that I have been to with both of these lovely people is R House. R House began with 10 different chefs coming together and launching their restaurants in a warehouse-like building. A large seating area is surrounded by nine more pernimate restaurants and one popup restaurant that is always changing around. Their vendors include Ground & Griddled, a breakfast sandwich and coffee shop. Amano Taco offers tacos and taco bowls. Be.bim which is Korean BBQ. Arba is a mediterranean street food restaurant. BRD offers fried chicken sandwiches and wings. White Envelope offers venezuelan arepas, which if you're like me and have no i…

Jumpin' Jumpin'

This was honestly one of the hardest workouts I have ever done. Aerospace's areojump class is one that is hard to beat. It was (almost) a full class of jump roping (the silent killer of cardio) coupled with a few toning exercises. 

Aerospace is know for training many of the Victoria's Secret models including Adriana Lima. Located in the heart of Chelsea, it is easy to get to from almost anywhere in Manhattan. They offer eight different classes along with a "Training Camp". Their classes include ThinkFast, AeroBox, Aero3, AeroBarre, AeroJump (the one I took), AreoImpact, AeroPower and AeroFly. Aerospace's website descrbes it's training camp as,"Every muscle in the body battles against gravity in this ultimate fitness class designed to enhance endurance, speed, stamina, power, coordination, recall, tone and muscle strength." Sounds like my next Aerospace workout will be taking this training camp challenge!

Make Chickpeas

One of my new favorite snacks to make at home are chickpeas. Yes, I know, you don’t “make” chickpeas but the way I have them you do.Trust me once you give them a try you’re going to be making them all the time!



All you need is a can of chickpeas, a baking pan and whatever seasonings you’d like. First, you want to get the chickpeas as dry as possible. Lay them out on a paper towel until you feel that they are pretty dry. Next, spread them out onto a baking pan. Then add whatever seasonings you are in the mood for! I usually use salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and cumin. If you don’t feel like you put the spices on evenly throughout the pan, mix them together with a spoon but make sure you spread them out again before putting them in the oven.For the first 15 mins, set the oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Then turn it down to 250 and let them sit for about 2 hours or until crunchy. Then just take them out of the oven and let them cool. Let me know what you think!
