  1. This whole blogger/social media thing has been around long enough, some of us have been following each other for the better part of a decade. For me, photo sharing apps were my drug of choice, and when I was deep in the rabbit hole of building my + Beauty + board on Pinterest I found manyyyyyy …

  2. With spring rounding the corner into summer everyone at the studio is talking about how to freshen up their look and achieve that sought after summer glow. I’ve been traveling a lot recently and couldn’t agree more with wanting to freshen up my skin. I sat down with the W&D team last week and gathered up our …

  3. When I was “finding myself” after college (and a little lost and lonely), I bought a book called Living a Beautiful Life. I sat on my combination futon/bed (which did a horrible job at both of its primary tasks) in my overpriced, aging apartment in the D.C. metro area and searched the pages. Author Alexandra Stoddard …

  4. Cleansing sticks. Have you heard of them? After reading this Allure article, I sent a note out to the W&D team to see if they wanted to test out the newest way to clean your skin. I think I was in a hotel when I read the article and so tired from the day, I’m almost …

  5. Minnesota friends! I am excited to share that we’re hosting a beauty & wellness pop-up event on Saturday, March 4, from 11am to 3pm at Studio 125. Those of us who work in the studio are always chatting about our favorite wellness tips or spots around Minnesota for a quick spa pick-me-up. With that, we decided to …

  7. Brought to you by Aveda

    Complimentary facials. Guided meditation. Scalp-to-Soul consultations. Aveda is betting on better with a new approach to the retail experience. Headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Aveda recently launched their newly designed Aveda Experience Center, the first retail store of its kind at Southdale Mall in Edina. I was thrilled when Aveda asked me to participate in an evening …

  8. One of my hopes this year is to learn to listen to my body and give it what it needs. Sometimes that means a big glass of water and other times it means driving across town to get that sprinkle doughnut and giant coffee. It’s not just about food intake; when I’m tired, I try and go to …

  9. With a newborn and demanding work schedule, making room for “me time” has dropped to the bottom of my priority list. While I don’t have the time for luxurious facials and massages these days, I do feel better and more confident when I’ve put a bit of time and effort into my appearance. As I type this …

  10. New mom, new me, new hair! I’m thinking I need a change this fall and here is what we’re seeing for trends: 1. Deep, sleek side part: This is an easy makeover. No cut needed. Super chic but still relaxed. A good balance, no? 2. Natural Root: I dyed my hair way, way back and I’d …

  11. Woof. We’re in the dog days of summer and the last thing I want is my hair sticking to the back of my neck. I’m also currently debating growing my hair out again, which means my lob is at a weird in-between phase with bangs that don’t really do much but curl in 17 different angles …

  12. They’re at it again! Warby Parker‘s new Windsor Spring Collection is full of fun 90s nostalgia and also completely on point for what I’m loving right now. Loving these colors; such a fun way to add a bit of whimsy to your basics. Since summer is just around the corner and some kind of frame will be …

  13. Oh, to live a life with dry skin. ‘Tis an itchy and flaky existence, and for me, it seems perpetual dryness is my white whale of a beauty problem. No matter how much green tea and water I drink, ladies behind the makeup counter shove ultra moisturizing masks my way unsolicited. Turns out I just need to do …
