This morning on NBC's New York Live, I had the pleasure of working with Sara Gore and Lauren Scala. I originally pitched a general "New Beauty Gadgets" piece, but the producer (my friend Jess) gave me the challenge of finding new beauty gadgets that were all under $100. A hard task, but I was super impressed by all I found. Check out the segment here.
At 18 weeks, I went to book a massage and then realized I could no longer lay flat on my stomach and that it was time to book the prenatal. I immediately got nervous and began Googling how prenatal massages are done. I was intimidated to feel uncomfortable on the table with my changing body and didn't want to put myself in an awkward position. Here's everything I learned from my first prenatal massage.
Each time I go to Trader Joe's I find new thing I must try. As a gluten-free, vegan, they have so many options for me at great prices. I've been posting my hauls on InstaStories and have many of you asking about my shopping list so here's info on what I buy every single time.
As I go through new product mailings, I keep products that intrigue or impress me to the side and begin creating categories for round ups like these. Lately, I've received a ton of cool tech-y skincare gadgets that range from $20 - $160 and promise to help reduce the appearance of crows feet, keep your tweezers in check and even act as well as a derma-planing facial.
Back when I was 20 weeks pregnant, I had to supply The Bar Method Hoboken with a doctors note stating that I was able to keep up the work out. I didn't announce the news publicly yet and was still able to hide my little bump, but according to studio rules, I needed to start modifying certain exercises. I wasn't ready for that!
Even though I get a ton of luxury beauty products to test out, most of what I use is actually from the drugstore. This new exfoliator, razor, masking kit, highlighter and skincare are all in my vanity or shower right now.
