Finds for Guys
Comfort and fashion in a shoe…a dress shoe? Yes! That’s why you need to check out Geox. We love the Sergio, $200,
The ultralight, waterproof and breathable rubber sole makes this shoe debonair and discreet design elevating any attire.


For pretty hair, we asked award-winning Master Colorist and Hair Expert Vasken Demirjian for his tips on DIY holiday accessories tips for NYE! Demirjian suggests transforming a signature necklace: every gal probably has an intricate and sparkly necklace that is a favorite...why not incorporate this into your party 'do? Simply part hair on the side, and pin with bobby pins along the party - don't be shy of the pendants of the necklace hanging down over your ear, Gatsby-style - it's incredibly and unexpectedly beautiful!

All you need is something fabulous in your hair combined with your LBD and some heels and you have an insta-party look.


New for Holiday 2010 we love Kiss Nail Artist Nail Paint and Stencil Kit $6.99, available at CVS. With more concentrated color than nail enamel and faster drying time this new package is perfect for the season. The holiday themed stencil designs make anyone an instant nail artist; peel and stick, paint with nail paint provided, gently peel off to reveal a perfect design! For more info


Health Tip: How to Avoid Injury Falling on the Ice

Dr. Ronald Grelsamer, a leading surgeon and an Associate Professor of
Orthopaedic Surgery at New York's Mount Sinai Hospital, as a hip and knee specialist, Dr. Grelsamer is familiar with injuries associated with winter weather and shared his expert advice on how to prevent them. Here is some useful advice from Dr. Grelsamer about how to avoid injury during the winter season on slippery sidewalks and roads.
  1. Move your feet ever so slightly apart as you walk. This will give you better balance. If the street is really slippery, bend your knees a little bit. You may feel that you look funny, but it’s worth it.
  2. When going down an incline, consider turning sideways. Do NOT cross one foot over the other, as you will have no balance while your feet are crossed. If the ground is steep, bend your knees (this is where those annoying ski lessons can pay off)
  3. Protect your dominant arm. That would be the right if you are a righty, the left one if you are a lefty. Since a fall occurs very quickly, you have no time to plan for that. One recommendation is to hold your coat with your dominant hand, which instinctively leaves the other one to break your fall. If you are carrying something, do so with the dominant hand. Again, instinctively you will then use the weaker hand to brace yourself, should you fall.
