Beauty is in the eye of the beholder...and those of us holding the mascara wand.

After two decades of covering the beauty industry, I've come to learn what makes it so alluring. Finding the perfect shade of makeup to match your skin tone, adding a swipe of eyeliner to give your tired eyes a lift, discovering an innovative new product line, or indulging in a totally luxurious spa treatment. My experiences have been documented in magazines, newspapers and websites worldwide. I've tested newly formulated products in the lab, explored hair removal options, shopped for lipstick, added shine to my hair and succumbed to massage marathons--all in the name of beauty. I've written press releases, hosted makeover events and co-authored a Do-It-Yourself Beauty book (Alloy). On this blog, I write about products and services that I come across every day as well as those that have been provided by publicists or the companies that make them. Either way, I write what I think. I hope to share some of my insights--and bring you the latest, greatest beauty news right here. Join me in the quest to find all things pretty.

fashion week: getting around town

The best way to beat the traffic at New York Fashion Week? Hop into one of the specially designated pedicabs hired to take you from one amazing event to another. I took a pedicab from Lincoln Center to the Bing Lounge in the Mandarin Hotel. The space was a welcome retreat for fashion week attendees in need of a quick bit or a quiet place to file a story. And you could get a great latte there too. After meeting up with fellow journalists, we moved on to a slew of other great fashion week events.
