A Delightful Day With Dove

I have been a big fan of Dove for as long as I can remember.
Not only do they make products that both work – and work within everyone’s budget – but they also are big supporters of women looking and feeling their best, while appreciating the differences that make them unique.
Now, that’s a brand I can stand beside.

Recently, I had the honor of spending a whole day with Dove. And, I have to be honest with you guys – it was one of those events where I feel very lucky to be doing what I do.

Before I got to join my fellow “Trendsetters” for a day of Dove fun, I had a few other events to hit first. Thankfully, Dove had sent me their Beauty Finish Dry Spray Deodorant to keep me fresh and dry throughout the day.

My best discovery about this deodorant? Um, it’s magical.

MAGICAL.

You can spray it on and immediately put on your prettiest fashion pieces, with zero residue ruining your look.

And, that’s exactly what I did. Nothing – nada – on my Joie silk blouse and Rebecca Taylor vest.

As for Dove Day?

Well, we started the day with a ladies lunch at Viviane, one of my favorite brunch spots in town.

I had time o catch up with my peers – who are  more friends than “coworkers” in this industry – and discuss our picks for fashion and beauty trends. My picks? For fashion – Easter pastel hues, faux fur and pops of gold, and for beauty – shimmering eyes, dewy skin and glossy nude and baby pink lips.

Dessert, Dove Dry Spray Deodorant (in my fave, Beauty Finish),  my picks for beauty and fashion trends and a glass of bubbly, of course...

Next, we were off to my neighborhood nail salon, where everybody knows your name: Enamel Diction.

Famous for their fabulous nail art, they are equally known for their oh-so-cool ColorAstrology sessions with Rose Theodora.

Can you say FUN!??! And, verrrry enlightening.

After supplying Rose with my date of birth, time of birth and city of birth, she gave me my whole chart, along with all of my power colors. For me, she suggested flirty pastel pinks and soft lavenders to open up my romantic possibilities, because while everything else seems to be in my favor, my love life might want to perk up a bit.

NO KIDDING.

She told me to steer clear of red, because while it’s a power color, it also can frighten off suitors. Oh! Point taken. Lilacy pink it is!

Bring on the romance! Rose Theodora of Enamel Diction says that pastels shades will welcome love into my life! Ooh la la!

Before we headed off to our next stop, we experienced the full fragrance variety of Dove Dry Spray Deodorants by doing a bit of a bell jar test. Rose had also written down on our chart which deodorant scent would appeal to our senses best, based on our ColorAstrology chart. SO fun!

Lastly, we headed over to Satine Boutique, where we had a mini shopping spree. Little sets of accessories were all grouped together on a table, and we each got to pick which one suited our style best…kind of the same way, we got to pick our Dove Dry Spray Deodorants!

After a dream of a day, I was off to two more events that evening. And, honest to God, Dove kept me dry all night long. No wonder since it promises 48-hour protection! It’s now a staple on my dressing table, and it is a life-saver!

Whatcha’ Wearin’ Wednesday, Milissa S.? Stila Color Balm Lipstick in Betsey at Joie

A few weeks ago, I had a doozy of a day. Don’t get me wrong it was an amaaaaazing, unbelievably productive day – what with a shoot and 3 events to attend that evening.

The stage for the evening was set with the first event I attended at the oh-so-fashionable Joie on Melrose. The champagne was flowing, chocolate delicacies were being passed around and – lucky for me -there were Stila makeup touchups and Kristie Streicher feathered brow shapings going on!

Getting the "feathered brow" from the Kristie Streicher brow goddesses

Perfect to prep me pretty for a busy fun – yet working – evening out!

In the midst of all this, I spotted this gorgeous girl with perfectly shaped, feathered brows wearing the perfect summer raspberry lipcolor. A double Whatcha’ Wearin’ Wednesday opportunity!!

Actress - and our WWW girl - Milissa S. sporting a sweet summer raspberry lip - the perfect pop for a Hollywood summer night

So you know what I had to ask!!

BF: I love your lipcolor! I love your brows! I’m Dawn by the way. What’s your name?

WWW: Milissa S.

BF: Well, Milissa S., I gotta ask ya – Whatcha’ Wearin’? And who did your brows?

WWW:Kristie Streicher and her team did my brows, of course! And the lipcolor is Stila Color Balm Lipstick in Betsey. I love it!

BF: Well, we do too! I can’t wait to try Stila Color Balm Lipstick for myself! And after hearing who shaped her gorgeous brows, I sat right down for a feathered brow shape-up with the Kristie Streicher brow goddesses! And I was pleased as punch with the results!

And – I have to add – I just barely avoided going home with this new friend.

Coveting: This Joie Kennedy Tote handbag in Daphne blue

I tried to be responsible, beauties. I really did. But I keep dreaming about this Joie Kennedy Tote handbag ($158). Oh, what to do!? Looks like it’s time to start a very important letter.

Dear Santa….
