Summer Beauty Bag: How I beat the heat…

Tresemme Split Remedy Shampoo Conditioner

Being a summer born baby, I love the beach, BBQs and all the outdoor activities the season has to offer.

Olivia Munn - Busy Phillips - Christina Hendreicks - Sarah Jessica Parker

The finale of my time at New York Fashion Week, turned out to be a momentous occasion. I attended a screening of “I Don’t Know How She Does It”, opening in theaters this weekend.

Sarah Jessica Parker plays finance executive, Kate Reddy, and does a wonderful job of portraying those moments when a busy working mom’s life becomes…
