Hollywood Gets Juicy

Nicole Richie @ Pressed Juicery

Pressed Juicery is helping Hollywood starlets and La La Land residents get back to their ‘roots.’  The relatively new juice bar offers 3 levels of cleansing with delicious concoctions , all neatly packaged up and ready to be delivered to your front door.  This makes life a lot easier on those pressed for time, including celebrity fans like Nicole Richie. Richie recently tweeted,  “I took a weekend job at Pressed Juicery! Who can deny this face?” as she served up fresh cold-pressed juices to Santa Monica customers.  It would be wonderful if the slick juice bar finds its way to other cities so the rest of us can all get juiced up too.

The Magic of Morrocanoil

I often receive compliments on my hair being soft and shiny.  I think that a lot of it has to do with my East Indian heritage so I’m pretty lucky!  Nevertheless, I do take good care of my tresses with regular trims and minimal coloring.  My latest love is the Montreal-based Morrocanoil line of products which contain argan oil, a expensive oil derived from the berries of the argan tree in Morocco. After using the Moisture Repair shampoo and conditioner, I simply apply a few drops of the Moroccanoil Oil Treatment before styling. It’s absorbed super-fast for being an oil and doesn’t leave a sticky feeling in the hair at all.  During our cold Canadian winters, I periodically use the Moroccanoil Dry No More Scalp Treatment which provides that extra dose of nourishment.

Even Fergie is raving about Moroccanoil in this month’s People magazine,  “I brush it through my hair and let it soak all night.”

Ask your stylist for a sample and you’ll soon want more!

Eat Pray Love RIDE


I’ve always been a fan of the Electra Bicycle Co., and  Julia Roberts is shown here riding the Electra Amsterdam in her latest film, Eat Pray Love.  The movie, based on the book by Elizabeth Gilbert, opens in theatres today.

As far as myself, I have my eyes on this beauty. Electra - Women's Ticino 8D - Wintermint (Electra Ticino 8D in Wintermint)
