Kiehl’s Since 1851’s 4th Annual LifeRide for amfAR Finale in LA!

life ride

If you’re in the LA area today, you need to stop by The Grove from 12-3pm.  Kiehl’s (one of my favorite brands ever) has embarked on a nine-day philanthropic motorcycle ride from Seattle to Los Angeles, to raise funds and awareness for amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research.

The finale (at The Grove) will include a celebrity ride up, a check presentation ceremony with Global Fundraising Chairman Sharon Stone (!), performances by Kelis and DJ Spinderella, an interactive photo booth with Harley-Davidson, temporary tattoo artists and more. The event is free and open to the public.

Kiehl’s will also offer a Celebration Discount of 15% off all purchases, with the exception of charitable products and value sets, all day TODAY, and will donate that 15% difference to amfAR, up to the $125,000 total donation.  Take advantage of the discount, guys!  Check out some of my favorite Kiehl’s products HERE.


New Yorkers in LA at The Grove (and a giveaway!)

It’s crazy to think that I’ve been living in LA for almost FOUR years now (in September!), right?  Well, believe it or not, there’s quite a few of us out here on the west coast now…so a dinner was in order.  Whisper Lounge at The Grove was gracious enough to host us girls, and guys, the dinner was AMAZING.  We were all freaking out about how good the food was and there are plenty of Instagrams to prove it.

The attendees (all former New Yorkers in the beauty world, mind you): me, Nadine Jolie, Emily Kate Warren, Erin Wolf, Erin Kelly, Meg Young, Ning Chao, Roopika Malhotra
