I had so much fun working with new models at Popomomo, and it’s exciting to see them make it big. Athena Wilson, my Spring 12 model, recently got her own Elle spread! She’s been walking in great shows recently, like Marni, Mulberry, Missoni and Theysken’s Theory, but i think this is her first big spread.
Here’s are some of my favorite shots from the Elle editorial.
So happy for her!! Here’s some of my favorite shots with Athena in popomomo.
I first met Athena when Kristina Dechter (then-editor of Foam) picked her to model Popomomo when the line was featured. She had such a great look that I couldn’t wait to work with her again. I’m sure this is just the first of big things for Athena!
The Cut has a great piece about where Dove’s new ad campaign falls short. If you haven’t seen it, you should watch the video, then read their post.
I totally agree with The Cut, but also feel the ad was near perfect, but went too far. The point literally illustrated in the ad is much better and more positive than the more narrow one it tries to hit you over the head with towards the end.
My friend (and hair-stylist extraordinaire) Courtney Rice’s salon, Sunday Morning Hair, is featured in Refinery’s round up of the best salons in LA!
i got a manicure a while ago before my trip to NYC, and I went with Shellac polish because I’m hard on my nails and i had to be presentable at the start and end of my week and a half long trip…
honestly they were great and lasted the whole time; but now I feel like my nails have been brutalized and are dry and not nice….
it’s funny to me that people think LA is a cultural or intellectual hinterland when so many cool things keep happening. Maybe those people just watch too much cable?
Case in point: Slake Magazine is now on it’s 3rd issue (as in printed, heavy and hold in your hands issue), featuring writers such as

- Local legend C. R. Stecyk III, who was included in MOCA’s recent Art in the Streets, has contributed a few photo essays
and young artists like
- Anne McCaddon (we will actually be posting images of anne’s beautiful work and studio this week)
- Michael Dopp
- and illustrators like Dan Peterka (work is shown below)
and they throw pretty good parties too.
Haven’t checked it out yet?

Rimmel just sent me a bunch of new product: and while, as always, I’m really into their eyeshadows, I’ve become a recent convert to something I never thought i would try: Primer.
Traditionally meant to go under foundation or powder, the primer smooths out your skin a bit, and feels light and not at all oily while on. The Rimmel one, Fix & Perfect Pro 002 is seriously great: you feel like you aren’t wearing anything while you look like you aren’t wearing anything but you look a bit better:)
However, now that I’m obsessed with it: I need to get a primer with SPF: unfortunately, Rimmel doesn’t make one.
Other options are from Makeup Forever (SPF 50!)
or NARS (SPF 30)
both at Sephora.
