Dear 15-Year-Old Me: You’re Okay

This is hanging on my dad’s office wall. Me at 15. I saw this picture at my dad’s house, and it broke my heart.

Me at 15.

I saw a gorgeous 15-year-old girl, but that’s not the 15-year-old girl I remembered.

The 15-year-old I rememberer was chubby, with braces, looked like a boy, and was much too much.

Too much, physically.

Too much curly hair.

Too much love to give.

Too much of a talker.

Too much of a singer.

Too much of an actor.

Too much of a kiss-up.

Too much for her parents.

Too much for her brother.

Too much for boys.

Too much for herself.

Too much everything.

That is not who I see now. I see someone who was just enough.

I see this picture and see a gorgeous 15-year-old, with a big personality, who was painfully insecure. More than anything, I wish I could go back and tell myself: “Embrace your curves. You’re never going to be a size 0, so stop fighting it so hard. You’re only wasting time and energy. Embrace your talents and loving spirit. You don’t need to be your big brother, best friend, or anyone else for that matter. You just need to be you. It’s enough. Don’t be afraid of being different. It’s the very thing that will change your life for the better. You’re enough. You’re special. Life is going to be so sweet. And, lastly, you’re okay, you’re okay, you’re okay, you’re okay.”

I dedicate this post to all girls in middle school and high school out there, and their parents. I promise it’s going to get better. YOU’RE okay, you’re okay, you’re okay, you’re okay, you’re okay.

Dawn

Coachella 2015: Lowchella

Coachella 2015 in a nutshell?

Lowchella.

 Stayed in a beautiful home of a beautiful friend, got to wear the most delicious pieces and jewels, met some of my fashion heroes, drank champagne, attended fashion shows, went nightswimming, and clinked glasses at Liberace’s Palm Springs home. 

Shoes off & twirling, whilst channeling my inner wood nymph, at Coachella parties.

This year’s Coachella was a little different. As many of you know, I lost my beloved Uncle AV last week. So I decided to do a MiniChella or LowChella, as I was calling it.

I left on Saturday morning, and arrived at my talented designer friend, Christopher Kennedy’s, home in Palm Springs, which he shares with his husband, David.

Christopher Kennedy's Living Room - just a taste of how gorgeous this place is!

I literally couldn’t have stayed in a nicer home or hotel. Christopher’s house is the ultimate in livable luxury. In fact, it was just featured as the Christopher Kennedy Showcase Home during Modernism Week in Palm Springs. And while it’s a home – with a backyard that doubles as a golf course, and a pool in the front yard – I definitely felt like I was at the chicest of Palm Springs resorts.

This is Christopher & David's backyard!! HEAVEN.

On Saturday, Christopher and I headed over to the Pandora Jewelry #PandoraStyle VIP house at  Le Parker Meridien Palm Springs.

See how happy this Free People pantsuit makes me? SO happy!

First up? We sat front row at the Plenty by Tracy Reese fashion show at Le Parker Meridien (my fave!!!), and had the pleasure of checking out her tropical getaway-inspired collection. Then, we picked up some Hawaiian Tropic sunscreen, mingled with friends, and chillaxed with some delicious popsicles with Minnetonka.

Next up? A wardrobe change, of course! Into the ultimate bohemian Coachella Cinderella dress – Enak Tiered Maxi Dress ($268) and Heather Gardner jewels- and off into the sunset, I went.

This beautiful boho dress is currently available at Anthropologie. Enak Tiered Maxi Dress ($268)

Wee headed over to the PopSugar party at The Viceroy, where I got to catch up with one of my favorite ladies, Mara Ferreira of M Loves M.

Always good to see this girl!

And, then there was a surprise! Christopher, being the BRILLIANT and in-demand designer that he is, told me had re-designed Piazza Di Liberace – LIBERACE’S HOUSE!! I kid you not. And, ohhh, the owners just happened to be throwing a fabulous fête that night. I gathered up my girls, Shana Honeyman and Mad Men costume designer & Shoes Of Prey designer, Janie Bryant, and headed on over.

It was everything and MORE than we had hoped. Christopher – and the owners – had maintained the Liberace luxury we all adore, while transforming the space into the epitome of Christopher’s signature livable luxury.

We were so in awe, that we didn’t want to leave. So we didn’t.

Oh, y'know…just Janie, Shana and I posing with the Statue of Liberty in Liberace's backyard…like ya do.

It’s no surprise that the highlights of Coachella for me were all fashion-related this year.

Ask anyone who was at this year’s Coachella, and they’ll all tell you the same thing: Coachella has become the new Fashion Week of spring. When I spoke to Tracy Reese and Nanette Lepore at the Pandora brunch on Sunday, at Le Parker Meridien, they both said that “festival season” is a whole new season of design for them to create.

Dishing with Tracy Reese & Nanette Lepore about festival style

And, then the day got even more fashionable and sweeter, when I got to spend the afternoon with fashion icon & Sex & The City costume designer, Patricia Field, and one of my favorite folks, Lara Eudolian of Pretty Connected.

We had a ball sitting front row, while watching the Whit fashion show.

And then the sweetness all got stirred together, when Tracy Reese headed over to our row.

What had started as a very sad week ended up being one of my favorite weekends – what  with staying with a good friend, making new friends, and getting to meet 4 of my fashion heroes. I couldn’t have wished for better.

Although, I will say that it sounds like a dream I may have once had.

The Lowchella mood *that cuff is Heather Gardner

So long, Palm Springs. I’ll be seeing you again, soon. After all…you know I can’t stay too far away from you…lover.

Bye-bye, Palm Springs…for now

Ken Paves Made Me A Coachella Cinderella!

I met Ken Paves in December, and it was friendship at first sight!

Fast friends!

He really listened to me, as he transformed my hair into Jaclyn Smith and Priscilla Presley’s lovechild.

I do believe I manifested this moment. I used to dream of having Ken Paves cut my hair!

All while dancing, and with no voice, due to a pesky case of laryngitis.

Charlie's Angels? I don't think so. I'm one of KEN'S Angels!!

Even without speaking, the man is a master communicator. He makes everyone feel valued, respected, important and beautiful. And he’s THE celebrity hairstylist, y’all!

He literally wrote the book. (*pictured here with Ken's book is all Heather Gardner jewelry)

So, when Ken and I decided that I should come in to his Ken Paves Salon in West Hollywood, before I headed out for Coachella, I could barely contain my excitement. The week had been quite a sad one, with having to say goodbye to my beloved Uncle A.V., and my heart just wasn’t into Coachella…and neither was my hair.

Before Ken Paves

Ken perked me right up. Once in my “Hairy Godmother’s” chair, we came up with the idea for “Coachella Cinderella,” complete with s-waves, his clip-inextensions, and lots of volume, thanks to his line, You Are Beautiful, available now at Walmart. Big fan of this line, guys. BIG fan. I recommend it to everyone.

Ken Paves' You Are Beautiful line - my go-to shampoo, that always leaves me with full, bouncy, voluminous hair that lasts for daaaaays

After a few hours, some bubbly and some even more bubbling conversation (interview to come on FabFitFun & here), I left with a ‘do that was definitely made for dancing.

Coachella Cinderella in her groove at Le Parker Meridien Palm Springs

But the best part? You can’t leave Ken’s chair, without him making you feel just the most beautiful you’ve ever felt. And when you use his products, he wants you to feel the same way. As much as the hair he creates is second to none and is, indeed, BEAUTIFUL, Ken himself is just one of the most beautiful, kindest, funniest, and most inspiring people I’ve ever met.

Ken Paves, You Are Beautiful, Ken Paves You Are Beautiful, Dawn McCoy, Ken Paves Salon

He actually makes me want to be a better person.

Ken working his magic

So, off I went to Coachella, with a killer head of Coachella Cinderella hair and my “Hairy Godfather” Ken’s words in my heart.

Coachella or Bust.

Thank you, Ken.

This Cinderella will never forget it.

Lulu DK For Clinique Launch Luncheon

Spring in a basket.

Spring in a basket. The Lulu DK for Clinique Launch Luncheon

Yep, that’s what Clinique is giving us with the new launch of their Lulu DK collaboration.

I was lucky enough attend an influencers’ lunch at the home of Lulu DK designer, Lulu deKwiatkowski, celebrating the seasonal collab. Inspired by the Bahamian flowers that adorned her straw tote as a child, Lulu’s free-spirited and playful design shines through on the cosmetics bag and clutch, drenched in sunny yellow with bursts of bright pink.

The Lulu DK for Clinique cosmetics bag and clutch

With catering by Joan’s on 3rd, a freely-flowing bar and comely companions, it was the perfect kickoff for spring.

Oh, Joan's on 3rd…you NEVER disappoint!

 

The girls with Lulu, celebrating the loveliest of launches

To bring the spirit of that perfect spring day home, head to Macy’s (where it’s exclusively sold) and pick up the limited edition cosmetics bag and mini clutch, compliments of Clinique, with any Clinique purchase of $27 or more.

 After making the difficult decision of palette (pinks or nudes?), look inside to see it filled with your favorites from Clinique. Which ones? Oh, how about Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief, High Impact Mascara, Clinique Colour Compact, Dual-ended Long Last Glosswear and Different Lipstick, and Lulu’s favorite product, Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion.  Lulu says of the cult classic, “This is the first moisturizer I ever bought. My mother introduced me to it. I still carry it around everywhere.” 

The situation for spring. Get it while you still can!

And it’s all yours, compliments of Clinique (with $27 purchase).

So, go get your spring on, girls!

I’M LOVING: Estee Lauder Double Wear All-Day Glow BB Moisture Makeup

All-day Glow? More like All-Day GORGEOUS!!!

I love this new little secret potion of mine SO much that I even made a video! Check it out:

A BB cream that wears all-day long, imparts a healthy glow AND gives you SPF 30? “We’ll see about that,” I cynically said to myself as I tried my new Estee Lauder Double Wear All-Day Glow BB Moisture Makeup ($38) on for size for a big Oscars party, here in LA. And, see I did! Here are all the ways I know my latest secret potion can work for you.

 

Partytime: Double Wear BB made me feel like a star for entertainment’s biggest night of the year – The Oscars! From snapping selfies in the limo, to walking the red carpet, my skin glowed, without a smidgeon of shine in sight. I was in awe of how flawless my skin looked in photos from the early afternoon red carpet to the late night party pics!

My latest secret potion? Estee Lauder Double Wear All Day Glow BB Moisture Makeup

Dependable & Multi-tasks just like us! Double Wear Makeup is dependable, just like you. It won’t move, won’t run and won’t rub off. It brightens, smoothes and perfects my skin tone, all while offering that SPF 30 protection we all need everyday in our busy lives. A makeup that multitasks like I do? Yes, please.

Side shot. Flawless coverage. Gorgeous jewelry. Color me a happy girl.

Glowing on with Leeza Gibbons and Estee Lauder Double Wear All-Day Glow BB Moisture Makeup

 

As Lionel Richie once sang, All Night Long: With just a small amount, I was left with lightweight coverage and glowing skin, that lasted all day & night, from 1 pm ’til midnight. It brightened my skin, while also making it look flawless and smooth. Double wear, you say? I think it might be more of a double agent!

All-night long: Estee Lauder Double Wear All-Day Glow BB Moisture Makeup

Hey, Brides! It can give you that glow you’re looking for, without getting shiny or greasy. NO bride, bridesmaid or wedding guest wants that! On your wedding day, you should be your most beautiful version of yourself. It’s that simple. This makeup helps you do just that.

No-Blues Traveler: Estee Lauder Double Wear All-Day Glow BB is perfect for the traveler who wants to look polished and put together, without looking made up. Think of it as the makeup that Audrey Hepburn or Grace Kelly would have worn on their world travels. You get the light, natural coverage, while also getting your SPF in that’s so imperative on those adventures travel can bring!

Try it for yourself, and let me know how much you love it!!

Eye See You & Eye Raise You: Physician’s Formula Eye Booster Instant Lash Extension Kit

Yesterday, my eye makeup was all dressed up and ready to go, but something was…ummmm…missing. Oh yeah, LASHES!!

Something's missing here…MY LASHES ARE NAKED!!

With a bold, bronze-eyed look like this one, I needed equally bold and dramatic lashes STAT! No falsies? Nooooo problem.

Enter Physician’s Formula Eye Booster Instant Lash Extension Kit ($14.95).

The hero? Physician's Formula Eye Booster Instant Lash Extension Kit ($14.95 at your favorite drugstores)

So how does it work?

Just like The Jackson 5 once said, "Easy as 1-2-3"

Step 1 – Mascara: Sweep Lash Boosting Mascara to prep for fibers and layer on lash boosting ingredients.
Step 2 – Extensions: Brush-on extensions to upper lashes while mascara is still wet to instantly build lashes.
Step 3 – Mascara: Reapply Lash Boosting Mascara to seal and set extensions.
Repeat Steps 2 & 3: Layer extensions and mascara again. Apply mascara to bottom lashes and brush off any stray extensions on face.

With fiber mascaras all the rage, I was dying to see if the results were as dramatic as I had heard.

Welllll….THEY WERE!!!

My lashes were pumped up - ohhhh, just about 200%!!!!

My lashes were pumped up by about 200%!! I’m talking instant glam in just 2 minutes flat.

Pumped-up lashes without falsies? Eye see you and I raise you. And, Physician’s Formula – you, my friends, have raised the bar!

And it’s not just me seeing results! In fact, check out these proven stats:

  • 100% of women saw enhanced lashes instantly
  • 100% of women prefer the results over false lashes
  • 100% of women were amazed that their natural lashes could look so amazing
  • Instant Results: 100% saw the most dramatic lash effect ever experienced with a mascara*
  • Long-Term Effects: 100% saw thicker, fuller, longer more dramatic lashes after three weeks*

Full lashes make this girl happy!

Gone From The Peripheral Vision Of Our Everyday Lives

So sad that oftentimes it takes beloved city institutions going out of business to make us yearn for how good we had it. Such is the case with Sunday’s closing of Jan’s Restaurant on Beverly Boulevard in Los Angeles for me.

Jan's Restaurant in Los Angeles

Jan’s was one of the first places I ever went to in Los Angeles when I moved out from Texas to pursue a career in entertainment, following my college graduation in the summer of 2000. My college professor mom had accompanied me on my road trip out here from Dallas, and we had the mission of finding me an apartment as quickly as possible, before her fall semester commenced. Every morning, we would start the day, fueling up on my dreams and diner grub at Jan’s, a restaurant reminiscent of the diner on Alice, that was eternally and delightfully stuck in a 70s time warp. There, I would order their deliciously unhealthy powdered sugar-slathered French toast (back when I was still able to eat carbs with abandon), and Mom would order their signature spinach salad, even in those early hours of the morning.

The epic spinach salad at Jan's Restaurant

Upon Mom’s last day in LA, after 3 weeks of being out here setting up my first real apartment, before returning to Dallas – and leaving her baby for good in Los Angeles – our regular waitress at Jan’s, named Ann, helped ease the transition for us. As we sat in our regular booth, Mom and I were tearful, and a bit shaky, as I could already feel the homesickness creeping up in my throat. Ann came over to our booth and patted me on the back. She told my mom, “Don’t worry, Mommy. I’ll take care of her.” She turned to me, “Whenever you are homesick, honey, you come here and see me!” She then took out a pen from her apron and wrote down some words on the back of our check.  It was a Buddhist chant that she felt had changed her life, and she told me to say it to myself whenever I needed help falling asleep at night or when I felt homesick, lonely and far from home: Nam-Myo-Ho-Renge-Kyo.

Mother & Daughter in 2000

I think of how many things have changed since those days so long ago at Jan’s as I set out on this new adventure in a new city as a new adult – I’ve had different boyfriends and different jobs, I’ve moved to Nashville and moved back from Nashville, I’ve made two records, lived in four different houses, fallen in love a few times, broken up with those same loves, started a blog, been the voiceover for numerous national commercials, and have achieved my own little corner of sweet success out here in Los Angeles. Yet, one of the constants in my life is that I still say that chant that Ann gave me in times of unrest, when I need calming.

On the next to last day that it would be open, before it becomes a Chipotle, I went to Jan’s. I asked to sit in Ann’s section (there was a wait of course, due to her popularity), ordered the spinach salad, quietly watched her work, and observed the other patrons, who looked as though they were feeling as sad and nostalgic as I was.

I saw elderly men arguing about the bill, an offbeat, artistic-looking mother and daughter team taking in the menu, groups of friends reminiscing in the corner booths, lots of 40-something parents who had brought their little kids to give them one last sip of their own lost youth, and a young man upset that the oatmeal and iced tea had run out. After all, no need to order more when you’re closing up shop the next day.

But, mostly, I saw folks like me – people visiting their memories of yesteryear, housed in this family diner – and trying to taste that last bittersweet bite of nostalgia before every morsel was gone. In the booth across from me, sat a little old lady, armed with a parked walker and a smile. She was eating an Egg Beaters omelet, drowning in picante sauce. She told me that she had come to Jan’s every Saturday and Sunday. When I asked her how long she had been coming, she replied, “Too many years to count!” I have a feeling she’s one of many who would have had that same answer.

As much as it warmed my heart to see all of these patrons who loved Jan’s there, I couldn’t help but think how annoyed the owners and employees must be with us - “If you guys had been loyal and turned out like this all along, we wouldn’t be going out of business.” Sure, I can head over to their sister restaurant, Astro in the valley, for that spinach salad, or to splurge on french toast when the craving hits me, but it’s less about the food and establishment; it’s more about the people who fill the space, run it every day, give it its soul, and make it feel alive…people like Ann.

Ann.

While it hurts us as individual patrons – and our whole society – that institutions like Jan’s are closing in droves and will be no more, it hurts even more that the figures at the heart center of these institutions will no longer be living in the peripheral vision of our everyday lives. Whenever I went there, it felt like home – as much as anything did, and now the time has come to bid adieu to another home I knew. Another home I loved.

Before I left today, I shared with Ann, that I still have that check with her handwritten chant on it, and have been repeating that chant, almost nightly, for 15 years now. She remembered me, and inquired as to how my mom was. I told her that Mom was fine, but she would sorely miss those spinach salads.

Then, I asked Ann what she would be doing now that Jan’s was closing. She said that after 31 years there, she won’t be relocating to the Astro location. Instead, she’ll be retiring, and then hopefully, moving back to her native Thailand. I can only hope that she gets as much peace in her retirement, as she has given me these past 15 years. I hugged Ann, gave her my business card, she gave me her address in that same familiar handwriting, and said,  “Maybe you can come visit me in Thailand!” I left her a $50 tip on a $12 bill.

Somehow, it still doesn’t feel like enough.

Celeb Beauty Collection Curator Corner: Classic BeautyFrosting Faves Sure To Make Any Woman Feel More Feminine

Look what I've got in store for you! My Classic Product Picks at Beauty Collection this month!

Beauty Collection asked me to pick my favorites as their first Celebrity Beauty Curator. But how did I decide?

Pick my beauty FAVORITES, Beauty Collection? How's a girl to decide?

It was no easy feat. After all, I have a slew of favorite beauty products I’ve accrued over the years, as a former makeup artist, celeb shopper, entertainer and beauty junkie. I decided to choose my crop of “Classic Favorites” by narrowing the scope down to the shades that correspond to my BeautyFrosting signature colors: candy pink and mint green.

Classic Faves. Pink and green. Feminine and Serene

These products are among my faves already for the sheer product quality and efficacy, but add in the beautiful packaging, and they’ve earned a lifelong favorite status in my heart, on my face…and on my vanity.

1) Darphin 8-Flower Nectar Elixir ($150): No time for a facial? Keep this guy around. I know, I know. It’s not cheap. But an oil this luxurious just can’t be cheap! From one of my favorite French beauty companies – Darphin – who never does me wrong, this oil is worth every cent. A rich elixir that revitalizes dull skin, while smoothing, firming and renewing it – it does it all while imparting a deep natural glow.  For my dry skin, I like to put a few drops on every night, prior to applying my eye cream and a rich night cream.

2) Fusion Beauty – Lip Fusion Infatuation – La Lip Jolie ($29): My favorite lipgloss of all time. Yes, seriously. This gloss plumps, fattens and moisturizes lips, all while leaving you with a sexy, supple, Victoria’s Secret model-like, baby pink-meets-nude pout. As for that dreadful tingle that most plumping glosses torture us with? Not this pretty thing. All you’re left with is a mild pepperminty tingle, that goes right along with the peppermint taste. Don’t wanna get kissed? Don’t wear this gloss, then. I’m afraid that your guy will want to kiss you, guaranteed. This is the only gloss you ever need. Oh, you might want other ones, but this one? You need.

3) Creed – Spring Flower ($175-$290):  Romance in a bottle. Rumor has it, that this fragrance was created for the enchanting Audrey Hepburn. So, it’s no surprise I love it! I have a pink-on-pink, Warhol-style painting of her hanging on my foyer wall at home. But let’s talk about that scent. This little lady is unapologetically feminine. Celebrating all that is fun about being a girl, the prominent notes of peach, melon, apple and jasmine, let you leave the house feeling like a strong and beautiful woman, as you prepare to take on the world. On the days I spray it on my pulse points, I always hear Peggy Lee’s “I’m A Woman” play in my head as I walk down the street. Coincidence? I think not.

4) Philosophy Pink Frosted Animal Cracker 3-in-1 Bath Gel ($18): Remember those pink-frosted animal cookies from your preschool years? I sure do. They had a spicy molasses shortbread with sweet, candied frosting on top. As much as I love them – and the nostalgia they elicit – alas, my 37-year-old figure doesn’t love them, quite as much. So thank goodness for Philosophy for bringing my taboo treats to tubtime! This 3-in-1 product gives you shampoo, body wash and bubble bath, all in one. So why not splurge a little? A “Dawn Do?” This makes an EXCELLENT choice for wedding or baby shower favors, without breaking the bank.

5) Voluspa – Maison Blanc 2 wick Candle in Pink Citron ($16): I love this candle because it smells like my favorite brunch cocktail – the pamplemosa. What’s a “pamplemosa?” Well, it’s my recipe for equal parts fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice and champagne. And it’s exactly the scent you get here, housed in this beautiful tin. Another “Dawn Do?” I love gifting this oh-so-chic, pink and gold-packaged candle to my friends, as housewarming and birthday gifts. It’s a sweet steal at only $16 as it has a burn time of over 50 hours! It’s the ultimate luxe gift for less.

6. Caudalie Beauty Elixir ($18-$49): This has long been a celebrity makeup artist favorite! I’m not a big fan of toners, but I love using this in lieu of a toner. It wakes up the skin, while tightening pores and giving a spritz of radiance and glow to the complexion. With its star ingredients of rosemary & peppermint, I love using it when I’m not quite awake in the morning, or after I’ve been writing all day and need to pep up for a busy social night ahead of hosting or entertaining. A “Dawn Do?” Apply it after applying makeup to set makeup, keep skin perfectly dewy, stay fresh and keep you revitalized!

Hope y’all have a great week! And I’ll be back next week with my trendy product picks!

What-oh-what will my favorite trending Beauty Collection products be next week?
