Isler on her great wish:

Isler on her fresh makeup:

“MAC Cosmetics Face and Body Foundation in C2 isn’t heavy, so you can still see my freckles.”

I love the NYX Cosmetics Wonder Pencil. This one pencil has so many used – concealing flaws & blemishes, lip liner to prevent bleeding & fading, highlight under the brow – but my favorite is to use it on the inner corner of my eye. This brightens the eyes & can give the illusion that they are bigger.

Simply Stylist’s Fashion & Beauty Conference returns to NY on October 25th!

Catt Sadler of E! News will be hosting the Fashion and Beauty Panel, which includes speakers such as actress & fashion blogger Jamie Chung who will be giving her expert advice on the fashion industry. This will be a real treat as Jamie Chung grabs your attention with her Keynote presentation and showcasing her fashion blog “What the Chung”. Joe Zee, Editor in Chief of Yahoo Style, will also be speaking about his dynamic career path in the publishing world. NY’s own, Hannah Bronfman, Co-founder of Beautified app, will be speaking about her entrepreneurial success alongside being an influential DJ and beauty enthusiast.

This year Simply Stylist is teaming up with an inspiring charity, The Farley Project. The Farley Project shows a perspective of bullying through the eyes of the bullied victims. The fashion industry can be very cut throat which is why Simply Stylist chose a charity that highlights kindness and to show that the fashion and beauty industry is more than a crude and callous environment

As an (unofficial) certified wino, I love discovering & trying out new brands. I had the pleasure of being introduced to Stack Wines through NYC’s BeautyCon this past May. I remember walking up to the bar and seeing what first appeared to be a tall, thin bottle of wine. But I was wrong – what really was under that packaging was 4 individually packaged STACKED wines.

I instantly ordered one (obviously) and when the bartender popped a straw into it – I almost fainted. I’ve never seen portable, individual wine before but I was hooked. I got to try all 4 types of wine they offer and each one was so flavorful and delicious in its own way.

Stack Wines is a set of four 187-ml stemless cups that are individually sealed and stacked on top of one another.

One of my biggest wine pet peeves is having to open a bottle of wine for just 1 glass. Then the rest of the bottle sits in the fridge and when you pour yourself another glass the following week the taste is totally different. The crispness & freshness is GONE.

Stack Wines eliminates that issue.  They are perfect for your trips to the beach and camping or to just keep in your fridge and snap one off to enjoy at anytime.

Here are some snap shots of Stack Wines on the go:
