Move Over Gold Grills, Diamond-Studded Teeth are Here

July 30th, 2012

{That’s adorbs Jill at Jugo Fresh}

When amiga Electric Blogarella told me about the juicy goodness that is Jugo Fresh juice bar, I listened, natch. I now find myself driving there tri-weekly for my cold-pressed almond milk, cashew milk, green juice or whatever my body is telling me it wants. My Jugo Fresh obsession is bordering on Doctor Drew Celebrity Rehab-esque levels, but I suppose being addicted to kale instead of crack is a decidedly different ballgame, right? Um, yes.

So then Ginger tells me that my girl Jill at the Jugo Fresh counter rocks a DIAMOND-STUDDED TOOTH and I’m like, “What? I already have a girl crush on her. Now THIS?” Here’s a closeup of Jill’s blink-and-you’ll-miss-it tooth bling, which is the illest shit I’ve seen in a loooong time…

{A diamond tooth! Um, NEED.}

Jill tells me her dentist/daddy in Illinois glued the sparkly fleck on with glue (the kind used for braces, obvi) two years ago. Dazzling yet dainty at the same time, would you rock this extra sparkly smile?

Flower Power

July 26th, 2012

{Peace and love, peace and love}

I love bumping into newbie Miami designers with a head-turning product and such was the case last week when I spotted these free spirited children. Yep, a That Madonna Girl flower head band ($30 and up) will have you eating mushrooms granola, belting a Janis Joplin tune or two and dreaming of Woodstock. Peace and love, kids.

How To Rock A Turban in 5 Ways

July 24th, 2012

I was recently asked to shoot a Refinery29 story on how to rock a turban — a trend I find extremely adorable yet hard to pull off with panache. So I enlisted the help of turband creator and designer David Jon Acosta who taught me how to werk a turban in not one but FIVE ways. All turbands can be found on David’s websites which are Our Prince of Peace and Gold Saturn. Also, big ups to Rachel Loren for my fab hair and makeup. Without further ado, here’s how to do the turban twist…{Wet ‘n Wild}

“Put your hair down, and place the turband under your hair. This look is perfect for wet hair and this particular patriotic turband is waterproof!” David says.

{Side Pony}

“After giving your hair a ponytail, fishtail or classic braid, place the turband over your head for a finishing touch,” David says.

{Take Cover}

“Come winter, opt for a velvet turband and place it over your ears. It’s the perfect earmuff substitute!” David adds.
{Double Duty}

“Place two turbands on top of one another, at different angles, to create a layered effect,” David says.
{Classic}

“The most obvious way to rock a turband is over your loose, wavy locks,” David says.
