Red Door Spa Union Square

I went to New York to bring you some beauty street style during the glitz of Fashion Week, but at the end of it all I thought I deserved a little time out. Whether you’re travelling for work, play or purpose it’s important to take some “me” time because even holidays can be stressful. It’s in these situations that I love to head to a spa and get a relaxing treatment. For this trip to New York I wanted to tick off a very important spa that has been on my bucket list for a few years, the Red Door Spa.

The Red Door Spa by Elizabeth Arden is the iconic gem in the empire. If you didn’t already know, Elizabeth Arden was a pioneer in the day spa industry having opened her first on Fifth Avenue in 1910. Now there is over 30 Red Door Spa locations in the USA but their newest is located at Union Square, New York. While it’s new and shiny, I had to go give it a good run through to see if it’s up to scratch.  Continue Reading

I hadn’t been to New York since 2010 and having gone vegan in 2013 means that I was yet to venture to the big apple with my new lifestyle. I was keen to see which vegan delights I would uncover and thankfully NYC didn’t disappoint me. Unfortunately I was limited in time to discover everything on offer in New York but even with my time & location restrictions there were lots of delicious treats to enjoy. Here are some of my favourites. Continue Reading

Fashion Week NYC Street Style Nails

Fashion Week NYC Street Style makeup

Everybody generally cares about the fashion at Fashion Week but beauty is just as relevant. It’s where trends are made and modelled – whether it be fashion or beauty. But where things differ is that the fashion world is obsessed with street style, while the beauty world seems to focus on the catwalk. I believe the tables should be turned because it’s the real people, out on the streets, who are bringing beauty looks to life. This is why I flew to New York Fashion Week to bring you this special series of Street Style Beauty.

I discovered some gorgeous looks and some key trends from the most fashionable people. In the first post of this 3-part series I showed you hair street style, and now I’m going to show you the makeup I saw at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, New York. Continue Reading

New York Fashion Week 2014

We’ve seen the incredible outfits worn to New York Fashion Week thanks to the many talented street style photographers that now rule the fashion world. It’s a topic that interests me but I always find myself asking, “why don’t you snap her nails?” or “where are the cool hairstyles?”. I questioned whether anyone who attends fashion ever did anything with their beauty look so I took it upon myself to go to New York Fashion Week and get the answers myself. This is the result ….. street style beauty.

I’m sure I’m not the first person to ever take a focus on street style beauty but it’s definitely lacking in the blog arena. Yes, the majority of the fashion crowd don’t brush their hair and they don’t really wear makeup but not all of them are like that. I discovered some gorgeous looks and some key trends from the most fashionable people. In the first post of this 3-part series I’m going to show you the cool hair colours and styles I saw at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, New York. Continue Reading
