I'm so excited that I have TWO great giveaways this week in celebration of Valentines Day and how much I love you all!

Today I've teamed up with one of my favorite skincare brands Korres to share with you the most delicious line of winter face products. (You may remember my review of their Black Pine Firming Line last year, read here) The Greek brand has produced a line of Wild Rose based creams and serums that work just as wonderfully as they smell. Paraben and sulfate free, the Wild Rose Vitamin C oil, cream, and sleeping mask works to increase the skin's absorption of vitamin C by as much as 1,000%! This effect helps your skin achieve that luminous dewy glow, even in the driest coldest depths of winter. With this immense boost of vitamin C, these Korres products dramatically improve the brightness and tone of the skin, and really reduce the presence of fine lines. And that winter dullness? Well it truly disappears. After just 2 wks of using the wild rose vitamin c active oil my skin is infinitely softer and noticeably smoother. I love that I've seen my hyper pigmentation spots starting to fade and my overall skin tone is so much more uniform (i.e. no blotchy red or irritated spots). And opening up the serum infused with real wild rose petals is the most luxurious and relaxing part of my winter night routine. 

So because I am such a fan, Korres and I want YOU to experience the amazing effects of these Wild Rose products. We are giving away 5 Wild Rose Vitamin C Active Brightening Oils to 5 lucky winners!

How to Enter:
1. Log onto your Instagram and follow @korresusa & @thesuppermodel ; you must follow both accounts as we will be checking
2. Like the photo of the product (will be one of the ones you see above) AND comment telling us the one skincare essential that you cannot live without in winter. Don't forget to include the hashtag #KorresWildRose so we can track your entry!

Open to U.S. residents only. One entry per person. Contest entry ends Friday February 12th at midnight EST !

Visit for more and get 15% off your first purchase!
Happy Valentines Day and Good Luck

In Search of Your Signature Scent? Try Scentbird Perfume Subscription

scentbird perfume subscription the supper model holiday sale coupon code

It's already starting to smell like the holidays isn't it! I've received a load of emails these past two weeks from you all, asking me what to get the girl/sister/girlfriend who seems to have everything. Always the hardest person on the list right? Well, if she's a fashion forward woman whose always on trend and the first to have the newest hot item, then she's also a lady who knows what she wants. Or at least she always thinks she knows what she wants.

So rather than spend hours pulling out your hair and sleepless nights combing the internet for something you think she hasn't discovered, why not try giving her the gift of choice? Let me explain...

For as long as I can remember, my grandmother always received a bottle of Chanel No 5 for Christmas. Whether from my grandfather, my mother, or uncle, her favorite signature perfume was always under the tree and ready for her to open with delight on Christmas morning. Perfume is one of the most luxurious indulgent treasures a woman can possess, and having a signature scent is something all elegant and hard-to-buy-for women seem to have mastered. The slightest whiff of Chanel No 5 never ceases to trigger the thought of my grandmother's closet or make me whip around to see if she's walked in the room. But my grandmother didn't always wear Chanel No 5. In fact it took her many years of experimenting, trying out various perfumes only to find that they either dissipated after only a few minutes on her skin, or made her feel like a walking sachet no matter how many times she bathed. Too sweet, too strong, too floral, too light, too musky: bottle after bottle, at a rather large expense, to finally get to the one that was just right for her.

A woman's taste in perfume, like men, is entirely personal. A spritz on a card at the department store, much like reading a dating site profile, is hardly an efficient way to know what you really think of the perfume, or the person for that matter.

So why can't we date perfumes before we marry them?

Well, now you can. Scentbird is the new perfume subscription service that sends you a personalized 30-day supply scent sample every month. Rather than spend upwards of $100 dollars on a perfume you've smelled for minutes in the overheated circulated air of a store, Scentbird allows you take your scent home with you. See how it smells throughout the day, introduce it to your family and friends and see what they think, and take it for a spin around town, a night out, or a weekend away to see how it holds up, makes you feel, and if it is in fact the right one for you.

Through Scentbird you can in a matter of minutes generate a comprehensive personal scent profile that matches you with perfumes via their TruScent Recommender, a trademarked process that accesses a huge database of detailed scent profiles, reviews by real people, and matching technology based on occasion, mood, taste, and personality to name a few.

I decided to put Scentbird to the real test as see what recommendations my profile would generate. Now to let you know I was not in the market for a new perfume. I have a signature scent that I spent my late teenage years finding, but after a decade in the same scent was curious to see if maybe I needed a change, or mix it up a bit.

The old "am I starting to go stale" thought did cross my mind...

Through a short, but truly interesting Q and A session, my scent profile was revealed and my recommended 6 month selection was laid out for me to choose which month I wanted each scent sample to arrive. And there it was. My automatic month one = my long time signature scent, Hermes Eau des Merveilles.

scentbird perfume subscription the supper model holiday sale coupon code hermes perfume

"Ok...yep, this works. In fact, this is revolutionary!"
And then I started to read, to explore, and to further understand my "scent profile." Woody, Fresh, Floral, or not so floral (fine line) a hint of pepper: it was like learning about fine wine. In minutes I knew why I like what I like, the history and the science behind my signature Hermes scent and it's creation, and now I have an entirely new lexicon with which to evaluate other perfumes that might fit my profile.... And the best part is I don't have to invest to know if I like having it around me all the time. I'll meet another one next month, this Tom Ford Beauty is January, and another the month after that.

At under $15 a month you get a smash proof, travel and spill proof Scentbird spray bottle that contains 50% more perfume than those darn roller balls. The spray allows the scent to aerate as it hits your skin, something that is important for activating the perfume's various notes which doesn't happen with those test tube style samples FYI. And maybe that is why I tend to totally over do it when I use them...

As I learned from grandmother long ago, fragrance is supposed to be fun, magical, and a very special luxury. It's a highly personal choice that shouldn't have to take infinite amounts of money and several years to get right. And yet, we've done it that way for years, decades even.

So this holiday I encourage you to break the tired trend. Have some fun exploring Scentbird for yourself, and for that wonderful woman who may not in fact have everything, give her the gift of a Scentbird subscription using coupon code TSM25 to receive 25% off your purchase!

Finding the Perfect Fall Pout with Bobbi Brown & Neiman Marcus

There is nothing more fun to shop for in autumn than beautiful fall makeup, and my go to Palm Beach beauty pit stop is always the ground floor of Worth Avenue's Neiman Marcus. On my latest visit to Palm Beach beauty bastion, I spent some time gushing over the Limited Edition Bobbi Brown collection for Neiman Marcus, and truly believe I've found the ultimate lipstick trio for any and every fall face. Including shades of Salmon, Soft Rose, and Pale Mauve, this trio provides a dose of pigment paired with the perfect amount of moisturizing shine. The texture is wonderfully weightless and each tube is ideally sized to fit hidden in even the smallest of evening bags.

I must admit that I'm traditionally a nudist. 

When it comes to makeup, that it is! I've always, maybe rather lazily, fallen into the easy nude lip trap unless it's a holiday party or I'm in the mood for a wild winter red. But somehow these 3 Bobbi Brown shades give me every bit of what I love about nude shades and lacquers, and upgrade it with just enough color that I feel comfortable, yet more sophisticated with my perfect new pout. 

In order to let your lips... well, do the talking... concentrate on balancing the lip with a strong and long brow. I love this eyebrow shadow duo from Bobbi Brown I've in fact been using since I was 18! This season I like to create a strong but flirty 60s upper lash line with a dark black liner and then apply shimmering bronze and rose tones on the lid, with a champagne color shadow underneath the lower lash line: this palette is perfect for highlighting cheeks, but I actually also use it as eye shadow and shine- it really does it all. It's then all about a matte finish face with contouring to provide a fall-proof foundation to let those lips shine shine shine.

Summer Hair Care with Living Proof

Hope you all are good and ready for the summer weekend ahead! And, yes I know it's only Wednesday but by midweek during the dog days of summer I am already planning what to pack for Friday's escape! But before jetting off to the beach, there is one product combination your weekend bag should not be without. It's Living Proof's fab frizz humidity shield and nourishing styling cream! This duo is just amazing: I have been using it all June and July to protect my long blonde locks from sun damage, dryness from styling, and to keep my hair from frizzing out of control in the summer humidity and heat. 
I use a nickel size amount of Living Proof's styling cream on wet hair to protect my hair from the blow dryer heat and help keep those baby hairs around my face from taking flight... Once dry and styled I use the Living Proof humidity shield as a finishing spray. It has a wonderful light styling hold as well as a UV protectant which helps increase the life and vibrancy of my highlights and lowlights. This product is especially good for blondes who want to ward against the total platinum fade we are so prone to every time we hit the water or step into the strong summer sun. I would also recommend it for those of you who balayage as it will protect that great dimension you worked so hard to achieve. I keep the Humidity Sheild in my purse at all times during the dog days of summer in case my hair needs a little refresher or extra protection.

Check out Living Proof's full frizz line bellow and a few of my other can't-live-without Living Proof hair essentials.

Don't Leave the House Before Reading This Festival Flash-Post

That's right, it's a Festival Beauty Bag Spill just in time for weekend one of Festival Season! What's in my purse you ask? A very personal question, but because it's also a very important one, I'm spilling my cross-body fringe bag guts direct from Tortuga Fest (follow me today and tomorrow on Instagram for an all access pass live from Florida's ultimate country music festival)

Easy rule to follow: only the most important essentials to help you get through the day/day into night because you never know where this crazy festival road may take you.

Think travel sized, think light, think hands free. This way you can be free to dance, free to sing, free your mind... you know and the rest will follow...

And so the 10 Festival Essentials in my bag today
(you can shop all the items in SHOP THE POST bellow) 

1. Fringe Cross-Body Purse
Lightweight and small which helps me limit what I can bring and keep my load light easy and breezy. A cross-body strap also allows for constant hands free festival going which means, yep more time taking pics and video, and of course those selfies... 

2. SPF, Shades, Sun Protecting Hat
Need I say more? Keep reapplying lightweight sun protection, I like a cover-up based tinted moisturizer with SPF, try one that offers full coverage but that doesn't feel too heavy or cake like. You can find my favorites in "Shop the Post" bellow. Sunnies protect your eyes along with that delicate skin beneath your eyes. And a hat is the must-have festival accessory of the year. Don't ask, just do.

3. Flash Tattoos
My friends and I love playing around with temporary tattoos, like the ones from Flash Tattoos, on the ride to the stage and mixing and matching our body jewelry with one another. It is a great activity when the ride gets long or traffic hits, and all you need is a wet paper towel or cloth to apply.

4. Make Up Setting Spray and Moisturizing Mist 
Keep it all in place, in the first place, and then provide your skin with a refresher! A two in one, I love the makeup setting spray from Urban Decay because it really works at waterproofing your makeup and making sure you don't suffer from creases or running. Find in "Shop the Post", bellow.

5. Pigment Pens
These are great for creative face painting (another car time-killer), eyeliner, and a touch up on your eye lid when day turns to night and you need a little more shadow coverage. I love the pigment pens from Ellis Faab, which you can discover in "Shop the Post" bellow.

6. Travel Sized Dry Shampoo
Essential to anyone with any length or style hair. Greasy hair just doesn't feel good, and looks even worse. Try the one from Drybar Products, in "Shop the Post" bellow.

7. Bikini Top
Because it gets super hot dancing around in the sun with tons of people, and you might want an easy quick change without having to go to the bathroom for an outfit switch. Why not bring the full bikini if you have room.

8. Hair Ties
It gets hot, you get sweaty, always bring one to pull up your hair into a top knot to avoid creasing when you want to let your hair back down in the cooler evening. Or try my 15 second Festival Hair Hack here.

9. Carry Cash
Making sure you have cash on hand is essential. It's a safe and easy way to navigate traveling too and from the festival and also insuring you can buy what you need when you want to and not have to stand in long ATM lines...serious buzz kill.

10. Sustenance
Carrying a Protein bar or snack pack around with you is so vital just in case you get hit with an unexpected long walk or especially if you have food allergies or are prone to low blood sugar. Remember you will get hot, sweat, and dehydrate so try to plan for it. I love these Chia Bars from Health Warrior.

The Lazy Girl's Way to Get Ready-to-Rock Festival Hair

Let's be honest, festival weekends are exhausting on the body and light on beauty rest. Getting up after a night, or several nights, of dancing, drinking, sun and fun can really test anyone's physical strength. And then there's the mental pressure to look festival fabulous from head toe... grrrr

But wait!

Don't let that sunrise sunshine put you into a festival funk: us lazy ladies and non-morning music mavens can still get ready-to-rock festival style hair in no time. Here's how: my "15 seconds to festival fabulous hair" tutorial is as easy as it looks and sounds. I only require day old hair, a healthy dose of dry shampoo, and a large cup of coffee while you prep your locks. Take a long tie headband, string, or thin fabric belt or scarf will even work, then tie, twist, tuck, and you're ready to rock and roll with a bohemian bob that will keep you cool, and looking cool, throughout the day and into the night.

Study the infographic above, or simply watch the 15 second video bellow to learn this lifesaving style hack.

Here's to happier & easier festival mornings!

Truself Organics Detoxifying Mask

Today I'm taking you with me on a 10 minute trip to the spa with Truself Organics Detoxifying Mask!
When it comes to skin care there is truly nothing more important than treating your skin as well as you do you the rest of your body: we exercise to increase blood flow, rev our metabolisms, and keep weight down. We eat healthy, chia seeds to lower cholesterol, leafy greens to pump out bodies with energy producing fiber and nutrition, and hydrate to keep our muscles and organs working at their best. We do this all to stay fit and to feel more fabulous, and of course to defy age as much as possible. And then there is our face: the ultimate time calculator or the mirror for everything that is going on inside of us.

So when it comes to skin care we need to take that same Organic-Only, Whole Foods, Plant Based approach to keep our skin looking as youthful as our insides. 

That is why I love Truself Organics, the brand that promotes lovingly treating your skin from within, knowing that what "goes onto your body, goes into your body." Truself Organic's line of purely organic and effective artisan products work with your skin to treat, heal, and regenerate your skin. And it is there incredible Detoxifying Facial Mask that is changing the way I treat my face. It is like a juice cleanse for my skin that I can do in just 10 minutes, and emerge with tighter brighter and glowing skin. 

The mask contains no parabens, synthetic fragrances or artificial dyes but instead includes a blend of organic clays that work to naturally detoxify the skin by drawing out impurities and blemish causing bacteria. After this quick at home treatment, you'll see skin with deeply cleansed and shrunken pores, a more even skin tone and a reduction in fine lines and scars. Try doing the mask 2 times a week for a month followed by a hydrating water based serum and moisturizer for amazing results. Get your glow back just in time for Spring, learn to #loveyourself and love the skin you have.

Happy Masking and thank you to Truself Organics for introducing me to the Loveyourself Lifestyle!
