As much as I love to talk about my passions and things that are going on in my life, it's super important to me that you guys get the content you want. It seems you're all interested in beauty a lot of more than any other content on my blog & I want to give you everything you want! The good news is, I LOVE beauty content too & I have a TON of tips for you.

I have some really exciting posts coming ALL about the latest technology in skincare, anti-aging, botox, lasers, fillers etc. I'm even going to be getting really personal with some details about my "flaws". You know, the ones we don't share on those insta-worthy photos, the not so picture perfect side of, blogging. Skin problems... the real shit. We ALL have them, despite what our social profiles show. 

Bottom line - the reason I started The Haute Brunette is to bring you info that you want and need to know. I want to show you where I got the best deal on a jacket & embarrassing stuff like I how I put essential oils where the sun don't shine (catch up on that here... it's a must read). I'm an open book. 

weekly B12 shot from the Expert Injector @parkavenueshanti @parkaveskin // Here's the 4-1-1 on B12 : it's an intramuscular injection that increases energy levels, builds immunity, elevates mood & they even have a special formula that can help you lose weight. I've been getting them for years & I love the way they make me feel!


Anyway, if you have a skincare issue these days it CAN be fixed, it's all about getting to the experts. I had an amazing meeting with the NYC skincare guru herself, the Expert Injector, Lauren Abramowitz from Park Avenue Skin Solutions. Seriously, she knows it all! She is a frequent contributor and clinical expert in the field of cosmetic dermatology to Elle, New York Post, New York Times, Refinery29, American Spa, Gotham, Hamptons and InStyle.com, among many others. Not to mention, she's basically a walking advertisement, her skin is #flawless. 

I actually learned about the godsend, Lumeca IPL from an InStyle blurb that she was quoted in before I ever moved to New York. So, I've been a fan for years and my skin thanks me for it.

In the next few weeks I'll be talking about the Lumeca IPL. Here's a preview : it treats conditions ranging from facial pigmentation, skin texture and/or photo-damage. It reduces age spots, broken capillaries, scarring, and an overall improvement in skin complexion, plus shrinks pores. 

Oh & NO DOWN TIME!

I am going to do a full series on that with way more details. That is something you don't want to miss, trust me, it sort of changed my life.

I'll be sharing major details on all you need to know, my skincare mistakes, my successes, things I've learned and the facts from the expert.

I filmed a few snippets from this weekend, including my meeting at Park Avenue Skin Solutions, sipping on a whiskey cold brew at iPic, running around the city & brunching at the cutest place - Antique Garage. The food was insane! Mediterranean, my favorite. The space is so me, "rough around the edges". I use that term a lot to describe Sergio, penny and I. It's like the perfect blend between edgy and sophisticated... like when I'm in an evening gown saying fuck every 5 seconds, does that make sense? Anyway, I really recommend it if you are in the city, it's in SoHo.


You'll see my style is SUPER casual on the weekends. I like to wear comfy shoes because I like to walk as much as I can, weather permitting. I'm all about comfort & style.

Here are some of my favorite weekend casual basics...
