Georgia NY Salon & Boutique Review

Hey guys 
Before Georgia
Last time we met, I had natural hair  However,  as an actress, my look must change often for certain roles, so this time my hair is back to relaxed. Now let's get to my review. It can be challenging work to find the perfect product for your hair. And if your hair is curly, wavy, or kinky there is a store catered to fit your needs. Yes this gem of a boutique located in soho should be called curl girl heaven, but instead it is named delightfully Georgia! Like “Great Georgia My, my hair is fabulous!!

Georgia is a curly girls Sephora. No more going from store to store trying to decide which label will truthfully bring less frizz to your locks or which brand will give you springier curls, now a whole store just for you, whether you are all natural or relaxed this store will literally quench your hair needs! And also another great perk of going to this store is that Georgia has there own yummy lines of moisturizers and fun bath stuff for your skin. This place is a one stop shop for your head to your toes, and you may even see a unique purse or jewerly that no one else in the world could have. I love Georgia for that!! You can buy the coolest and unique items for your body and your home!
But there is more! Georgia also has an amazing salon, and so you know yours truly had to test it out, and Im not surprised that I left looking awesome! Their beuticians are hair mixologist! They feel and look at your hair and apply a mix of different products so your hair can achieve ultimate shine and softness! And while your getting your hair done, listen to cool relaxing music from Stevie Wonder, India Ari to Maxwell and on top of it all they give you complimentary wine, you see, I told you it was heaven!!

Sharntai, was the beautiful woman to style my hair, I knew from the moment I saw her, she would do some magic on my hair. She used a mixture of products from Lanza Healing Strength “Silk Serum”, Lanza Straight Line Smoothing ShampooLanza Healing Color Care Trauma Treatment, PhtoSpecific Vital force Crème Bath and Jane Carter Wrap and Roll. This was the first time I ever had Lanza products used on my hair, and I must say my hair has never felt so silky. Sharntai, used two different sized flat irons, and made my hair curl like Dorothy Dandrige.

After Georgia worked their magic
If you're in Soho, or if you are far away, stop by, call, email do what you must for your curly locks. The wonderful boutique of Georgia is waiting to unlock happy days and nights for your curls!

The Water Secret by Dr. Murad

I recently had the great pleasure of meeting Dr. Murad.
Yes thee Dr. Murad!
The man who brought Alpha Hydrox to the market.
The man whose products are sold everywhere.
And can I just say, what a wonderful guy.
He reminds me of my Dad 
without the Latin accent. 
But anyway, let’s talk his new book The Water Secret
Which is one of the most informative and amazing books I've ever read
As you girls know I’m trying to
Stay looking 21 forever. 
And this book is teaching me ways on how
to not only stay looking young, but 
be my healthiest as well.
The book is based on Dr. Murad’s years of research and experience with his thousands of patients.
What he noticed was that his patients that looked the youngest and were the healthiest,
Had something in common.
They retained water in their cells.
So their cells stayed youthful, and were able to fight stress, and aging.
As you get older, your cell membranes become thinner, due to stress and, and other life hazards like pollution, sun exposure, sleeplessness etc. 
Causing you to age, get sick, and not be at your healthiest.
In this book Dr. Murad teaches you how  to keep your cells at their best state. 
Now you may think with a title like The Water Secret, he wants you to drink as many cups of water a day, but that’s not the case at all.. He actually thinks  it’s better to eat your water, than drink your water.
Yes I said Eat.
By eating fruits, and vegetables which are mostly water anyway, as well as powerful antioxidants.
Foods such as cucumbers which contain roughage, that helps with digestion, and fruits and vegetables, will help your cells maintain it’s optimal state and will reduce the damage to the cell membrane.
Your cell membrane is made of amino acids and lipids as well.
And foods like Eggs, seeds, nuts,  will also make your cell membranes stronger.
Did you know that there are many people who drink 8 glasses of water who still are dehydrated. Yes! Because if the water is not absorbed by your cells, guess where it goes, to the toilet. That’s why by  by eating fruits and vegetables, which not only contain mostly water but antioxidants as well,  your cells will strengthen.
This book is loaded with so much great information. Including a new word that Dr. Murad coined “Cultural Stress” which I am full of and  teaches you how to deal with it a little better.
Once your cells are at their optimum state, you will look much more youthful, have a lot more energy and look 21 forever (well not really, but it will kick aging’s butt)
He also teaches you about the importance of sleep. 
Here's something interesting. When you only sleep four hours a night for two nights, 
your appetite increase by 24%. No wonder I'm always hungry. Usually the most I'm sleeping is four hours a night. Anyway this book  is loaded with so much useful information including what you should look for in your cosmetic ingredients, I couldn't put it down.

I loved it!

Collective WellBeing Hair Care Is a Win!

With lil man, it’s so hard to take Linette out to get done.
If you don’t know who Linette is,
 it’s the name I gave my hair.
Yes I named my hair! 
Stop looking at me that way.
Around 2 weeks ago,
I tried to get Linette all dolled up
By taking her to a salon.
I had no other choice but to take
Lil Man
and let’s just say
by the end of the three hours,
And Lil Man screaming Bloody Murder for two and a half  hours,
The salon was more than happy to see me go.
So lately I’ve been taking care of Linette myself.
                                                Me at home taking care of Linette 

I actually am pretty good at making her look fabulous on my own.
I think I do a better job than the salons.
You know that I only like to use the best products on her.
Recently I got my hands on Collective Well Being Hair Care
The shampoo is called Right to Shine Moisturizing Shampoo.
This contains ingredients like Aloe Vera, LLipe Nut, and other vitamins for the hair.
Of Course No Sulfates, Yuke!
The conditioner which I think is the real stand out of the two is called Quick Fix
I love this conditioner and Linette does too. It contains Camelia Oil, Amino Acids , Vitamin B5, really nourishing ingredients for  Linette. It detangles like crazy, and leaves my hair incredibly smooth, and oh so shiny. I’m obsessed with the conditioner.
I love the fact that a portion of the proceeds of Collective Wellbeing go to making our world more beautiful.

L'ORAC Real Life To Red Carpet Close Up Eye Tutorial Is the Business!

My makeup skills are pretty good. At least I think so. I’m no makeupbyrenren. (I’ve seen that girl change the average woman to Halle Berry dupes with her makeup skills.) But, I am ok. I am always down for learning any new technique and skill, and saving money is my life story. 

So when I heard about L’Orac’s Close  Up Eye Tutorial which contains the full size Behind the Scenes Eye Primer, The Special Effects Mascara and eyelash primer, their amazing eyeliner, and a beautiful Movie Star Eyeshadow, oh and the brush to apply, and a tutorial on how you can apply all of this including a day to night look, you know I had to get my hands on this. 

All this for $36 Bucks! If sold separately you would have to pay $110. This is a steal. I especially love the tutorial which really explains in depth exactly how you should apply. FYI, the mascara and eyeliner are amazing. The eyeshadow is great too. My only qualm with this product was the brush. Although I used it, I would prefer to use my own tools, as this brush was a little flimsy and didn't blend as well as I would have like. Other than that, this is a true steal. 

 Have you tried Lorac Products? 

Are you getting this?

Glowology Opulent Body Butter & Winners of Giveaway!

I’m always on the hunt for a good body moisturizer. Because I’m a brown woman, when my skin is less than moisturized the dryness is very noticeable, especially on my legs.  I remember around three weeks ago I was going to an event. I had on this gorgeous yellow dress,  4 inch stiletos, I thought I looked pretty good, until my girlfriend remarked that my legs were so ashy it looked as if I had just finished kicking flour. (whatever!) Nothing is unsexier than a woman whose legs are so dry that ash is clearly present.   I’ve tried tons of lotions, creams, body butters that claim they leave you with soft moisturized skin throughout the day. Most of them are Lies! Three hours later, I’m reapplying because my skin is obviously dry again. Recently I got my hands on Glowology’s Opulent Body Butter. 

This is a wonderfully thick body lotion that is scented with hints of coconut and loaded with ingredients like Coconut oil (my personal fave) shea butter, honey, camellia oil, all of these are very nourishing and moisturing ingredients for the skin. The best part about this, is after using, I’m pretty much good to go throughout the day. Loving this.

Have you tried this?

I know I’m super late with the  crest winners but hey you know how it goes.

Nigel Barker's Beauty Equation=Must Read!

Although I’m a reality show addict, I’ve never been a big fan of America’s  Next Top Model. The show wasn’t really my thing at all. I’ll tell you, I probably only watched it just to get a look at Nigel Barker.  (Talk about a cutie!) When I was asked to review his book, I was honestly really skeptical, but let me tell you, this book is the business. Nigel writes this book in a fun, conversational and honest way, almost  as if he’s your big brother trying to give you advice. Nigel hopes to give you 10 essential qualities that add up to inner beauty. He says once you unveil these, you will find yourself uncovering your outer beauty as well. Throughout the book, he’s giving you some really great advice about loving yourself, stop comparing yourself to others, because it’s destructive, ways of taking care of yourself and some really helpful exercises that he wants you to do on yourself in order to build a more secure and positive you. He also teaches you what certain body languages mean like, arms crossed across the chest=disinterest, arms unfolded=openness, and other helpful tips.  I truly loved this book.

 Here are some really great tidbits from the book:

Be sexual and be sexy! It’s sensation. It’s Sexational. But the trend of being a hoochie needs to stop.
Don’t try to play a role that you’re not right for. Accept who you are and make it work.
Doing things others want you to do is fueling their ambitions not yours.
Also he tells you to eat certain super foods and you will see an amazing improvement in your hair skin and nails. Foods like Almonds, apples, avocados, baked tortilla/pita chips, barley, blueberries, brocooli, brusel sprouts, cantaloupe, chicken (skinless), garlic, green teak, hummus, kidney beans mackerel, oatmeal, olive oil, etc

Another great chapter comes at the end, where he teaches you how to take great photographs.

I’m kind of obsessed with this book, and highly recommend it to all women! This will be one of my rereads. 

Order it Here

Love it.

Welcome BeautyLogic's New Co-Editor and Crest 3D Whitestrips Giveaway for 2 Readers!

Hey there guys, 

BeautyLogic has been my baby for the last three years, but now with my new real life baby he  takes up a lot of my time and I’m not able to review as many things as I’d like. So I decided to take on a new co-editor, one of my trusted friends Cassandra Freeman. I figured Cassie would be perfect for the job for a few reasons. She’s very into beauty like I am. She’s amazingly smart, sweet, and also my part time therapist as well, lol. Cassie is also a dreamer. She believes in her dreams and goes full force after them. She’s an actress by trade and can you believe her first acting role was playing Denzel Washington’s wife in Spike Lee’s most successful movie Inside Man which grossed over 180 million dollars around the world. Cassie believes anything is possible, and we love that here on Beautylogic. Cassie recently finished shooting a movie in Africa, and immediately after that  she was inspired to start her own non-profit organization. It’s called The Kassandra Project which hopes to bring the arts to disadvantage youth around the world. With the first benefit, Cassie hopes to bring an arts school to Rwanda for the surviving orphans and youth of the genocide. The first benefit will be held on October at Tenjune in NYC on October 20.  So let’s welcome Cassie to BeautyLogic the right away. In honor of Cassie, we’re giving away two Crest White strips packs to two lucky readers.

You saw the difference they  made in my choppers. If you didn't see that post, click here. They really work. Just leave a comment here, write anything you want. Maybe you want to tell Cassie about your dreams. Write Whatever you want. Winners will get announced Thursday.

To RSVP to Cassie’s Benefit call 716-201-0527.
Hope you can join us.

Now leave a comment and enter for a chance to win one of the Crest White strips.



CellCeuticals CellGenesis

Keeping up with the Kardashians is one of my favorite shows. I don’t know what it is about that family. I absolutely love them. Having met Kim, (interviewed her this year when she had the fashion show for her clothing line. You can click for that here). I can tell you that she truly is a sweet person and one of the most beautiful women I’ve ever seen. But yesterday watching the episode I was a little saddened. Kim is not much older than I am, and got botox. If you saw Kim during those botox months, she looked horrible. Her face looked pulled back and just fake. I don’t know why she messed with perfection. As you guys know, I’m trying to prevent myself from aging, and although there is no fountain of youth, I refuse to resort to something like Botox any time soon. Lately I’ve been using Cell Ceuticals Cell Genesis at night. 

This was actually created by the Doctor that fixed Bruce Jenner’s horrible plastic surgery. This has seriously left my skin looking amazing. The product is a gel consistency, and I only use it night. What I noticed with this the last three weeks is that my skin seemed a lot more radiant, really soft and glowing. It contains something called GFP Cellular Complex technology, that supposed to encourage the regeneration of new surface cells for younger skin. It also contains retinol and antioxidants. Powerful ingredients against aging. Maybe Kim should have tried this before hitting the needle.  All in all,  I’m loving this.
FYI-yesterday I went to buy some wine at a new wine shop, and the guy asked me if I was over 21. When I said yes, he said just to make sure he needed to check my id.Haha!
If you’re 21 and over, start antiaging!

My Fashion's Night Out a Night to Remember

My Fashion’s Night out was a lot of fun. 
My friend Cassie and I began our night by meeting at Lincoln Center.- the New Home of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.

 We headed out to Diane Von Furstenberg and there was a huge party going on. 

Drinks were being passed around delicious hors d'oeuvres , and great music. 

Mrs. Furstenberg arrived and looked amazing!

Just a lot of fun.
We then headed to Georgia NY. We’ll be posting a review on Georgia in the weeks to come.
I got my makeup done by one of makeup extraordinaire’s Cynde Watson's team. 

They were offering minx mani’s as well, but Cassie and  I had to go see Halle Berry at Rag & Bone. 
Cassie met this great girl at Georgia NY who sells some really cool glasses. Her website is She was really sweet. Here's Cassie with one of her glasses. 

We then headed to Rag &Bone.
The line was insane.
 Here was the scene inside.
Halle walked in a short time later, and although no one was allowed to take a pic with her, we managed to snag some.

We then ended the night at Ideya, which I reviewed before.

All in all, a good night.

Crest 3D White Strips Professional Effects Are Amazing!

Growing up, I had braces from 3rd grade to 8thgrade. Yea, that was hell. But what was even worse was after my braces came off, although my teeth were straight, they were not white at all. Years of metal on my teeth, had left them just a slight shade above brown (yes that's how bad it was). I got teased endlessly due to the color of my teeth, and it was during my freshman year in high school when I discovered a tooth whitener that changed my yellow choppers to movie star white ones. I used that whitener for close to seven years. After the seven years, my teeth were insanely white and I constantly got compliments on my smile. However for the last few years, I haven’t really been using teeth whiteners on a regular basis. The last few months, I haven’t been using them at all which isn’t a good thing considering, I subsist on coffee because of my lil man’s sleeping patterns. 

                                 Before Crest White Strips

Recently, I needed my teeth to be WHITE, movie star White because of an important meeting (yes the same meeting I've been talking about my last few posts). I looked up my old tooth whitener, and it’s no longer being manufactured. I had seen those Crest White Strip commercials with that gorgeous bride about to get married who needed her teeth whitened, and the other commercial she did where she’s getting set up on a date and needed her teeth whitened, and when she needed to go on an audition and needed her teeth whitened.  Although I normally don’t follow commercials, when I began reading the reviews on websites about the Crest White Strips, I was convinced. So I decided to give it a try. OMG, this stuff works. First of all, the convenience of this product is amazing. It’s two gel strips one for the bottom teeth and the top teeth. You apply them to your teeth and leave them on for 30 minutes.  I can still talk, drink,  do pretty much everything with this stuff on. I began using this on Monday, by Thursday my teeth were a remarkably different shade. These are my choppers the day of my event after only three days.  I’m talking major white. Just in time for that important day. 

For $50.00 you’re getting dentist strength teeth whitening for less. This is a must have.
My only problem with this item is the bottom strip is way too short. It should be the same size as the top strip. Otherwise, I'm loving this. 

Do I recommend it?

I love you girls.
Not only because you take time out of your busy schedules to read me, but because you girls help me just as much as I help you.
When I reviewed the It’s a 10 Miracle Serum, you girls left comments and emails telling me I needed to try the It's a 10 Miracle Leave In Product.

I’m always iffy about leave ins.
Sometimes they leave my hair too greasy with no bounce at all. 
But after receiving over twenty emails about the leave in, I knew I had to get my hands on it, and I did.
I used it the day of a huge event.
I washed my hair, sprayed the leave in, in my hair, and then put some rollers on.
I sat under the dryer watching Desperate Housewives on Lifetime while it dried.
I love that show.
When I took the rollers out, Holy Shining!
Hair was shining, seriously vibrant, not greasy at all. I loved it. After I blew dry my hair to a style, it just looked beautiful. I should have taken a pic of my hair only but I was in a rush. Hubby took this pic of me though as I was leaving the house. I hope you can still see the fabulousness of my hair that day. 

I needed my hair to look perfect that day because I had a very important meeting, and it sure did. I've never gotten so many compliments on my hair. It’s a ten is no joke. I’m obsessed with the leave in, and the serum, and because of that, I’m having a giveaway. You can win all of It’s a ten products on my site.
