THE BIGGEST TRENDS IN BEAUTY/WELL-BEING HABITS

ED: “Green juice! We all love our Vitamix blenders! And gel manicures.”

RM:
“Vampire facials, saturated hair colour and red lips.”

JP:
“Everyone I know is obsessed with the Tracy Anderson Method - which has been made famous by celebs such as Gwyneth Paltrow. Friends are even organizing small groups to meet in parks as the weather gets nicer to do her routines together. I haven't tried it yet, but it sounds fun. Aside from this, during the summer, it's all about outrageous colours for nails and toes. Especially blues and neons.”
