    A/W Trend Guide: Velvet 

    One of the biggest trends for the cool weather season this year is velvet. Not only is it warm, it’s also incredibly luxe. Adding a few simple accessories or one statement piece (like a blazer) turns a simplistic outfit into a street style worthy ensemble in seconds. Basic black is always a good option, but deep jewel tones and pretty blush shades are some of the must have colors for the season. Think - royal blue ankle boot or a blush pink clutch!”- Faith

    My Favorite Winter Moisturizer 

     

    During the colder winter months it is essential to change up your skincare routine to avoid dry and irritated skin. I like to use a humidifier to keep moisture in the air and I always apply a moisturizer immediately after cleansing to lock in moisture. It's also a good idea in the winter months to switch to a thicker cream or ointment. I like to use Creme de la Mer in the winter because it luxurious and my skin instantly feels hydrated, soft, and well nourished. I use this all year but in the winter months I use it much more regularly. I also like to use the La Mer eye concentrate every night as well.

    What's your favorite winter moisturizer?

    Redbook Beauty Box Review 

    This month, as a contributor of the Redbook network, I am reviewing a few new beauty products. The products include the Dove Dry Oil Body Wash, Ogx Bamboo Root Boost Spray, and the Skinfix Hand Repair Cream

    This was my first time using a root booster so I was curious to give the OGX Strength + Body Bamboo Fiber Full Thickening Root Booster a try.  Usually my hair is a little flatter and weighed down on "second day hair" so I thought this would be the perfect time to give this a go. I just sprayed it right onto my dry hair focusing mainly on the roots.   After using the root booster my hair seemed to have more lift and more volume at the roots. Also I liked that the scent is light and pleasant. I will have to give it a try on damp hair and see what the results look like. It's also nice that this product doesn't contain any silicones, alcohol, or oil-all of which can damage or make hair flat. 

    To Use- lightly mist onto clean, damp hair, focusing spray nozzle directly on roots. For extra volume flip head upside down and blow dry with a round brush. Do not rinse. Can also be sprayed on dry hair for touch-ups throughout the day. 

    Dove Dry Oil Moisturizing Body Wash is new and it's deeply hydrating and gentle cleanser. Infused with argan oil, it is specifically formulated to address one of women's biggest concerns-dry skin. This thick white body wash cream with tiny gold bubbles in it has a light and soft floral scent. Personally I like using body wash over soap because it is way more hydrating and this one is even more so with the addition of the argan oil. So if you're like me and you like a body wash that lathers up and leaves your skin smooth and soft then this one is worth a try! 

    I have been using the Skinfix Hand cream daily since I received it and love it. This product is designed for dry, cracked and irritated hands and delivers healing benefits beyond the average hand cream. I keep it next to the sink and use it after I wash the dishes. The cream comes in a squeeze tube with a flip-top cap that makes it easy to apply. the cream is thick but it rubs in nicely and absorbs into the skin.  I also like this cream because it is free of heavy fragrance and doesn't feel oily at all. 

    Skinfix Hand Repair Cream contains 1% colloidal oatmeal and oatmeal is a proven anti-irritant shown to soothe redness and itchiness-which is often associated with eczema and dry skin.  It is also packed with soothing botanicals, rich natural butters, and emollient oils-all which help calm redness and itching. 

    I would definitely buy this and recommend it. It has even won several beauty awards by Allure, Shape, and Redbook.

    What I Wore: Washingtonian Top Doc Party 

    Congratulations to Aneesh for being named a Top Doctor by Washingtonian magazine! This is the second year Aneesh is being recognized for his excellence as a practicing physician here in the DC area. It was a fun evening celebrating last night at City Center DC and I got to see so many of Aneesh's colleagues and friends who were also being recognized for their dedication to the well being  and health of patients. 

    I decided to keep my look simple and elegant and wore a little black dress with gold pumps.  This spot sleeve mini dress by Karen Millen was the perfect dress for the occasion and the spot-mesh sleeves and v-shaped scoop in the front and back elevated this classic LBD. And best of all this dress was super comfortable to wear!
