Here’s what I’m obsessed with this week…

1. Well-Conditioned Hair.  Frizzy hair can be such a problem in warm weather.  Lately my stylist has been using L’Oreal Fiberceutic conditioner on my hair, making a significant difference.  As I pay a flat monthly rate (yes, I really am that high maintenance), I’m not sure how much the treatment costs separately.  It  is helping make my hair look softer, smoother and healthier.

2. Michelle Obama wore a dress from Target.  I so admire Michelle Obama, and never more so than when she visited an air station in Virginia wearing this little Merona number from Tar-jay.  Even better, this dress is something that we’ve seen before.  Some style icons know how to keep it real.  Belt by Sacai.

 3.  Nars website re-design.  NARS completely reconfigured the website.  Beautifully done. It’s clean, it’s easy, it’s intuitive.  Plus, they have $20 off/$100 order with the code NEWWEBSITE.  I think it’s finally time to pick up a Yachiyo…

Some of the links take you in the company’s history.  Under “World of Nars,” I found pages that explained the names of his products:

 In the meantime, Liz and I are continuing to organize items for our upcoming MAC Blogsale. We’ve taken your suggestion to heart, and have been busy gathering bubble wrap for the sale to come. You’ll find the sale at the “MAC Blogsale” link at the top of the page.

Here’s what my fellow beauty bloggers are obsessed with this week….

  1. Thanks for pointing out the Nars site! I am delighted to see that they now ship to Canada! Hopefully other high end brands will follow suit in the future offering shipping from their official websites instead of just department stores. Nudge, nudge Chanel! :)

  2. Thank you for the Nars code. Just used it to get two of the Fall matte lipsticks, the Oasis gloss and a Yachiyo brush. Perfect time to get that brush. Thanks once again!

  3. I love the new NARS website! It has a wonderfully done background section on Nars, including some of the back stories behind the product names. I love this, because I don’t get the references on all of them, though I try to. It also has a ridiculously cute montage of Marcel Nars (the frenchie) pictures dressed up in various costumes.

    On a side note… I think the code is for $20 off 100, not 20%. Essentially the same thing, though if you’re spending ~$100!

    • Hi Dovey–thank you for the update on the promotion. I’ve edited to reflect your comment. :) Do you know how long the promotion goes?

  4. I feel your pain as far as the frizzy hair is concerned. My hair is curly & prematurely gray so the roots get touched up about every 2 wks. I use Orofluido oil on it after washing it and mix coconut oil with my shampoo every time I wash it. It’s imperfect but it helps.
    BTW, thanks for bringing back the blog.

    D.

  5. The new Nars website is pretty amazing. I say get the Yachiyo brush. I bought it a while ago, and now I wonder how I lived without it. It’s an investment, but it’s totally worth it.
