It's the most wonderful time of the year in the most wonderful city on earth…And we are lucky enough to be here every single day! New York City transforms into a winter wonderland each year with Christmas trees, holiday window displays and amazing lights. Since this is our home, we have created a NYC Holiday 2014 guide with must-see sights & activities!

- Kick off your NYC holiday tour at Radio City Music Hall! Watch the famous Rockettes in their annual and incredible Radio City Christmas Spectacular. With lots of high-kicks and holiday cheer, it's a fun performance for all ages. 


-Thousands of people converge on Rockefeller Plaza to visit and snap photos of the awe-inspiring beauty of this 80-foot-tall Christmas tree, beautifully decorated with 45,000 LED lights. We promise it is worth fighting the crowds to see! 


- Half the fun of holiday shopping in New York is strolling down Fifth Avenue and gazing at the truly incredible window displays that coincide with this time of the year!


- Let the dancers of the New York City Ballet mesmerize you with their annual performance of George Balanchine's The Nutcracker. The performance runs until January 4th!


- A visit to NYC wouldn’t be complete without making a stop at Serendipity 3! If it’s too cold for you to sample the famous frozen hot chocolate, you can always try their Serendipitous Hot Chocolate or Cinnamon Sticks, an espresso with a cinnamon stirrer!


- During the holidays in Bryant Park more than 100 boutique shops help transform the popular park into a winter wonderland. The Holiday Shops at Bryant Park sell everything from jewelry to food.


- And last but not least, you can always join 1 million people in Times Square to ring in the New Year as the ball drops! (link to Times Square NYE)

Our Four Festival Beauty Essentials
Posted by Laura on Apr 16,2014

With spring here and summer fast approaching, festivals are becoming more and more popular!


Festivals are all about good times with friends and making amazing memories! We love the make-up, fashion and accessories, also! Self-expression and creativity is half the fun of going to a festival!


Here are our four festival beauty essentials.


1. Photo Ready Face

Create a flawless, photo ready face and protect your beautiful skin with SPF (after all, you’re going to be outside for a while!)


Our all-in-one beauty balm multitasks to the max! Creamy yet lightweight formula combines six skin-perfecting products in one tube: moisturizer, broad spectrum SPF, water-resistant foundation, anti-aging complex, antioxidant protection and complexion brightener. Contains antioxidants Ginseng Root and Ginkgo Biloba Extracts, Vitamins A and E, plus a Multi-Mineral Complex rich in Magnesium, Potassium and Zinc—all of which condition and protect skin from environmental damage. Optical brighteners instantly diffuse light and diminish the appearance of fine lines and blemishes, while Licorice Root brightens and helps even-out skin tone over time. Mineral oil-free, non-comedogenic and dermatologist-tested.

A juicy way to love your lips! Infused with Vitamin E, Love Me Dew features an ultra-hydrating, healing formula with a luxurious balm-like texture. Shiny color wears comfortably—never dry or sticky! This convenient chubby stick never needs sharpening and is perfect for touch-ups on the go.

4. Faux Glow:

Create a sun-kissed glow that all festival-goers seem to have!


Baked Body Frosting is for whenever you want to show a little skin, and your skin deserves to be polished to perfection. A moisturizing, silky smooth powder that adds the warmth of bronze, or pearly luminosity, to the body.  Thanks to the buildable coverage, and wet-or-dry application, Baked Body Frosting can smooth on a subtle hint of luminosity, or build up in layers to a satin-sleek radiance. When applied wet, it will give your skin a diamond-like sheen.
