Happy Sunday, all! Though, it being Sunday, you’re probably not so happy (the weekend's over, let's face it, we’re not). Avoid all the doom and gloom of the last dwindling free weekend hours and recover from your Friday/Saturday, sans-moping. Let's get proactive about this.
Recommended watching: Charade. Why? If Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant aren’t enough (and who are you kidding if Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant aren’t enough), the 1963 film is all romance and suspense à Paris, with a host of murderous crooks and Audrey’s insane, insane, you-will-want-all-of-it- forever Givenchy wardrobe. It’s about as “feel good” as a crime thriller can get, and Cary Grant is such a babe, even in his silver-fox years. The whole film just makes you want to fly to France, wear a lot of great hats and head scarves, and be very gamine about the whole thing, to which we say: No shame in it—us, too.
Recommended primping: Channel your inner Isabelle Bellis and massage a few drops of the good Dr. Alkaitis’ Organic Nourishing Treatment Oil into your scalp and hair and rest for twenty minutes before shampooing out. You can use the same oil to soothe your bod, too, post-shower—they call it a ‘miracle in a bottle,’ and not for nothing. It smells like heaven, can be used literally all over, and improves skin elasticity while it nourishes. Wait and marinate with the film while the oil absorbs. Isn’t it great you don’t have to rush off anywhere?
Now, onto your face.Audrey is so bright and charming. You can get that pore-less skin thing happening with a clarifying cleansing oil (we like Shu Uemura Cleansing Beauty Oil Premium A/I), and some spritzes of Tammy Fender Bulgarian Rose Water (a product we feel Audrey probably had, in some incarnation). Then, seal the deal by delicately patting an Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Daily Youth Restoring Serum Capsule on your face, because we love these gold suckers for their smoothing, firming magical powers—plus, they look elegant, much like Miss Hepburn. Sadly, leopard pill-box hat not included.
For a little bit of a kick, do an at-home mani/pedi with the Deborah Lippmann Santa Baby Nail Lacquer Set. We think the multi-dimensional vibe of the ultra-glossy, chrome hues (The First Noel, a hyper-purple, This Christmas, a burgundy patina, and the shimmery cerulean Sleigh Bells) fits right in with the twists and turns of Charade, don’t you? (You will by the end of the movie and the manicure, we swear.)
