Cayli Cavaco Reck's shop
After I posted Going Organic about my search for natural beauty products, I popped into Cayli Cavaco Reck’s shop Knockout Beauty on the Upper East Side. Daughter of the ex-creative director of Allure magazine Paul Cavaco, Cayli’s interest in beauty and skincare started in her early teens and is now not only her passion, it’s a growing business. Following the success of a seasonal shop in the Hamptons last summer, the Lexington location is now a permanent address.
Packed with beautifully packaged natural products, the best part of the visit to the shop was the consultation with Cayli herself. I left with a slew of samples and detailed instructions on how to apply them and realized that an important part of buying beauty products are the recommendations from someone knowledgable. Then you can order refills online.

Beauty is not my forte, but after I posted on the Shigeta collaboration I decided that it’s high time to get out of my comfort zone and try something new. I’m really interested in organic products, so I emailed a beauty editor to see if she would share her current favorites–and, voilà! That lip exfoliator has my name on it, this winter has taken it’s toll.

I read in February Vogue Paris that Ms. C is a fan of the organic beauty brand Shigeta and has partnered with them on a travel kit. Sadly, it’s only available at the Shigeta showroom in Paris, for now.

Rose is one of my signature scents and I’ll try any that come down the pike. When I spied this Diptyque roll-on I didn’t even hesitate–I’ll leave a review in the comments.
After seeing myself in a bunch of holiday snaps, I decided it’s time that I became a bit more makeup savvy. These kits from Charlotte Tilbury would be a good place to start considering that I already love her products–just wish she came with them for a tutorial…
I completely messed up on the date for Sam’s book signing in NYC last evening, but, I’m still going to pick up his new book to see if there are any images that we worked on together.
I feel like I’ve been running from one event to the next since Thanksgiving and it’s starting to take its toll on my skin. A rose mask could be the answer- I’m a rose fanatic.
Other suggestions welcome.

Self Service Issue #45
This holiday season I’m inspired by the matte, red lip color in this picture from Self Service issue #45—it just looks so right.

I still get Advent calendars for my girls, but have not considered one for myself until I came across this product-filled book-like version from Diptyque. This would certainly start off the holiday season with a bang.
I’ve been hunting for a new scent. The WSJ listed five chic women who wear Chanel N°5—perhaps, a classic fragrance is the way to go.
