i’m that annoying girl who says “one sec!” to my salon stylist as I rearrange flowers & magazines on the floor so I can take a music-inspired foot boomerang. cuz when you’re feeling it, you’re feeling it. thanks for your patience & magically delicious hair, @mysticilluzion, @thedrybar, @alliwebb! 💛💁🏻‍♀️💛💋🎉

my first love note from Mark was a math equation! some people say it with flowers. others say it with abstract algebra. (circa 2005) #happyvalentinesday

There comes a time in every woman’s life when her 5x mirror goes from friendly informant to abusive antagonist. Too bad we can’t sage smudge bad skin. But we *can* use the luxe products I wrote about for @Bergdorfs magazine. Check out their new Beauty Lab. Your skin will look so suspiciously good, your dermatologist will ask what you’ve been doing.

i had a nude awakening today. so fun playing with NARS Spring 2018 Color Collection, a range of buffs, nudes & neutrals. (CLOCKWISE FROM TOP: @narsissist Highlighting Powder in Free Soul - I ❤️LOVE IT! • Lip Cover in Summer Fire 🔥 • Lip Cover in Embrasse Moi 💋 • Lip Cover in Hell Gate 🔱 • Liquid Blush in Hot Tin Roof 🏠 • Lip Cover in Under Arrest 🔗 • Not shown: Velvet Shadow Sticks in Galice & Frioul...because I impulsively played with them before shooting this 😱)

monday ménage à trois. the fancy body oil edition. deets below.
.
take note✏️ .
.
1️⃣ Monoi Tiki Tahiti. I found this years ago in St. Barth’s & have ordered it online ever since. The ancient Polynesian formula requires soaking Tahitian gardenia petals (aka: tiare) in coconut oil. You can actually see petals in the bottle. To liquify before applying, I soak the bottle in warm water or just take it in the shower.
2️⃣ @LeonorGreyl Huile Secret de Beauté. This blends right into skin & leaves behind a fresh-from-the-Côte-d'Azur scent. I spritz my body & hair before heading to the beach. My friend @itsmatin uses it on swimsuit models before 📸 shoots. Remember @kateupton’s glowy bod 👙 on the @si_swimsuit cover?
3️⃣ @TomFord Soleil Blanc Body Oil. My go-to before dinner parties. Just a few drops on my arms & legs, never any grease or spots on silk clothing. Such a lovely white floral & amber scent, I can skip perfume entirely.

i thought i had LA figured out. until i found out that everyone needs Psychic Vampire Repellent Protection Mist. some vibes are too strong to cleanse with burning sage, tibetan salt & chakra bells. #pollywood

midday farmer’s market haul. if deadlines permit, i plan to sip hot lemon tea 🍋 in a fresh sage & rosemary bath 🛁. otherwise, you’ll find me binge-watching @bravotv 📺 with 🍕🍺. #dichotomy

somehow this year’s flu fairy skipped over my house. i’m chalking it up to the hidden arsenal of cold-fighting ammo in my @prada bag. i always slip in a few @ricola_usa drops (and pink lip glosses, obvi) for when i feel a cold 🤧coming on. #spon

It’s a *very* good day when master perfumer Frédéric Malle sends your favorite fragrance, Carnal Flower. If you’re not familiar, you must get a whiff. Dominique Ropion spent 18 months developing this scent for Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle. I fell in love with it during my InStyle editor days & spritzed it in my hair on my wedding day. The tuberose note is so rich and flower-shop fresh, I feel a little bit drunk on flowers (there are hints of gardenia and jasmine, too). And really, don’t we all deserve a bit of decadent extravagance from time to time? (Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle Carnal Flower parfum, $400 • Carnal Flower Body Butter, $230. • Carnal Flower After Sun Balm, $95. Available at @barneysny, @neimanmarcus & the @fredericmalle website)
