It sure seems to be the season of long wear makeup and Sisley Paris has introduced four new shades to its line of long lasting lipsticks. Now, as I mentioned before, long wear tends scares me because I immediately recall the impossible-to-remove stains and drying products from yesteryear. Sisley’s Hydrating Long-Lasting Lipstick is neither: the wear is light and silky but doesn’t fade and the formulation is super hydrating without feeling weighted down on the lips. When I wear lipsticks, I usually prep my lips with balm- but with this product, I feel confident applying on its own and it keeps my lips feeling comfortable throughout the entire day. (more…)
When I first saw that celebrity hair stylist and extension expert Tina Dizon charged up to four figures for hair extensions, my eyes almost fell out of my head. But after meeting her and experiencing her Beverly Hills salon, The Private Room, I quickly got why people go out of their way to see her. Not only is she a former top stylist and lead educator at the legendary Umberto Beverly Hills, she is incredibly fun, stylish and down-to-earth. Those qualities are reflected not only in her staff but also in the salon’s chic black and white interior (Tina has a penchant for interior design). Here are her latest obsessions: (more…)
Sarah Vickers is one creative and stylish gal! As a partner in accessories company, Kiel James Patrick, Sarah acts as the the designer and inspiration behind the women’s assortment.

Neon. Is there any other color range getting more play this season? You don’t have to be a trend forecaster to know that it will be all over spring break, the streets, and Coachella style slideshows. Smart retailers like Victoria’s Secret have clearly picked up on it and the super saturated hues are featured prominently all over their Spring offerings for PINK. Last month, I visited their design headquarters in midtown to check out the new line and meet Elsa Hosk, former professional basketball player turned Victoria’s Secret model. We talked about her favorites for the new line, what Spring Break is like in her native Sweden, and her thoughts on Knicks phenomenon, Jeremy Lin. And this being an interview with a Victoria’ Secret model, I naturally had to ask her about her workout/diet regimen too. Read on:
The Daily Obsession: I know exactly one word in Swedish. One of my friends had a Swedish pen pal in high school, who is now her husband.
Really? What is it!
TDO: tack så mycket(means thank you)
That’s a good one to know! You should also know hej (means hello.) My favorite word is bageri, which means bakery.
What’s Spring Break like in Sweden? Is there an equivalent? (more…)
We love Cecilia Wong’s brand of gentle yet effective skincare and her holistic approach to health and beauty. After experiencing one of her amazing custom facials and trying her products, we were curious to learn more about the lady behind the brand. Read on below as we get the scoop on her latest obsessions!
ONE. Herbalism. Growing up, my family practiced Traditional Chinese Medicine. We used herbs in every way possible. You could say this rubbed off on me, as I now incorporate my knowledge of herbs into my products. I’m really into studying the benefits and effectiveness of herbs and how they affect the aging process. It’s fascinating!
TWO. Cecilia Wong Skincare Black Currant Serum. Inspired by my love of juicing and the signature product in my natural skincare line, this divinely rich serum is packed with vitamins and nutrients. It only takes a few drops of this serum applied daily to my face and neck to hydrate and fight off fine lines and wrinkles. My skin glows instantly!
THREE. The Barnes and Noble Nook Color. I love to read and collect books, but life in the city means space is limited. The Nook allows me to own and read as many books as I want at a time, without cluttering my home – or handbag!
FOUR. Andrea Bocelli’s Music. His voice is like an angel and it calms my mind and soul. My morning ritual is to burn aromatherapy candle, turn on his music and meditate. My all time favorite song of his is “Caruso”.
FIVE. Hong Kong. Hong Kong is my favorite place to be. It truly is a city that never sleeps! There is so much energy, great shopping, food, surroundings (that rivals NYC) and people.
