sandy_leong

Sandy Leong, of eponymous luxury jewelry line Sandy Leong Jewelry, isn’t just a talented designer–she’s a fabulous woman. When we first met her at a press preview months ago, we knew we’d be gawking at her line of modern structural jewels (just take a look at this statement topaz ring and twist bangle with diamonds)–what we did not expect was to end up chatting and laughing with her for an hour! Naturally, we needed to know what all her obsessions were…so we can add them to our own list!

ONE. Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara — Look beyond the catchy name; this mascara is my go to daily secret for keeping my peepers looking peppy.

TWO. Sunday Riley Good Genes Treatment — In love with this skin treament – it really does add a daily glow to the face  – no secret about it! 

THREE. Sandy Leong Origin Mesh Bracelet — Part of my classic collection and still a favorite- this 18K gold bracelet lays nicely flat against the wrist- perfect for anyone with an active lifestyle.  I even wear it while playing tennis!

FOUR.  Case Mate iPhone5 ID Case — This cover with room for my ID, metro card and Visa — great for those days when I’m walking the dogs, running errands, picking up groceries and oh, wait, what are those cute jeans doing in the window?

FIVE.  Dark denim by IRO  — I love the way these jeans fit.  They are super flattering and have been my go to denim brand lately.

Insider's Obsessions: Ashley Wagner

The torch is off to its first spacewalk and we are three months away from the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi! To ramp up for the big event, let’s see what Olympic figure skater and brand new COVERGIRL Ashley Wagner is obsessed with right now:

ONE. Lorde — “She’s only 16 years old and she looks wise beyond her years. Her look is almost like a fortune-teller and her music is the perfect combination of moody and edgy.” (Lorde’s 17th birthday was yesterday, just after this interview.)

TWO. Finding the perfect big chunky turtleneck — “I need to get this staple into my wardrobe. Even though I live in California, I’ll be in Boston for Nationals and I want to be prepared.” Our budget-friendly recommendation: H&M’s Knit Turtleneck Sweater.

THREE. Olay Fresh Effects (S’Wipe Out!) Refreshing Make-up Removal Cloths — “I need to make sure that I keep my skin nice and clean. I take so much pride in my skin and even when I’m wearing lots of makeup for competitions, these take it right off.”

FOUR. All Saints winter line — “It is super comfy casual, but at the same time it’s nice and edgy and can be dressed up or dressed down. I should probably look for a turtleneck from them.” Oh hey, here’s one!

FIVE. COVERGIRL Flamed Out Mascara — “I love how it goes on so thick, which gives me a ton of volume and fullness.” Tip: COVERGIRL recommends applying more of this curling mascara on your outer lashes for a winged look.
