I love finding the best new beauty products and chic fashion items from season to season! As Founder and Chief Creative Officer of PageDaily, wife, mother of two children (and an adorable Shih-tzu), my days are action packed from morning to night, seven days a week. I find myself more and more turning to the internet for my market research and online purchasing. The daily overload of information combined with too many choices and places to shop, and countless items to buy can be overwhelming at times. I am so excited to have found a solution and can’t wait to share my latest best-kept secret and go-to online shopping destination: StyleUnited. The new online hub is a streamlined and efficient one-stop destination for the most cutting edge beauty and fashion news. They also pick items that are specially tailored just for you!
It is so easy to shop their personalized head to toe recommendations by taking the Style 360 quiz. All you have to do is answer a few fun questions about the looks you like, pattern combinations you prefer, create your own outfit out of styles provided and in a matter of seconds you have your very own customized picks! The Style quiz is highly adept and super smart at selecting the best skincare, haircare, cosmetics and fashion for you. I love how user friendly it is–in fact, my Style quiz continues to be spot on in the “looks I’d love!”
StyleUnited also features exclusive articles, slideshows, blog posts and helpful how-to videos from the industry’s leading experts. Want to create loose sexy waves and top hair styles to do with a curling iron? Check. Want to learn how to do a colorful smokey eye or waterproof your look? Check. Log on and score some of the best beauty and fashion information from influential stylists, top bloggers and online editors. Providing insider tricks, tips and product picks is my motto and I think StyleUnited is an amazing resource.
StyleUnited’s one-on-one live webcam consultations with professional beauty experts give you a department store shopping experience without ever having to leave your own home (which saves you time)! I enjoy chatting with the live consultants because they give you real time recommendations and advice. This is perfect for preemptive shopping or any last minute help you need before heading out the door.
StyleUnited gives you direct access to purchase your recommended beauty and fashion finds with the click of a button. I can shop my picks straight from their site and don’t have to spend hours, or even minutes searching for things. Some of their retailers include CVS, Amazon.com, Walgreens, Target, Soap.com, Walmart, Drugstore.com, Ulta and P&G’s own eStore.
StyleUnited helped me to select the stylish items and products that I truly need and love…I’m addicted! And, with a limited amount of free time each day, it’s not always easy to make the best shopping decisions. Be sure to check out this fabulous new site and take your very own Style 360 quiz–it’s fun and you will be impressed by the results.

Ideal for busy days out on the go, here are our picks for the best multitasking products guaranteed to keep you covered.
Cut the medicine cabinet clutter with Dr. Bronner’s Magic All-One soap, a great 18-in-one cleaning solution that works on body, hair, teeth, clothes, countertops… if you think it, it can clean it! The Dr. Bronner’s website has helpful tips on how to best dilute the solution to fit your washing needs.

If you want to get the celebrity red-carpet look of glistening skin, O.N.E. olive oil is the trick. It smells great so you can skip perfume, and it’s perfect for the summer months when skin is most prone to drying out. O.N.E.’s combination of vitamin E and organic olive oil can work to revitalize a wide spectrum of skin types and can be used as a cleanser; refreshing or soothing as need be. We love it for its organic, enriching formula that’s just as effective on hair: Apply to damaged or frizzy ends for a smooth texture and increased shine. Great to use on dry cuticles, too!

Clean skin is beautiful skin, which is why AHAVA 3-In-1 Mineral Toning Cleanser is rapidly becoming one of our favorite beauty bets. It’s no longer necessary to have multiple cleansers for face makeup, eye makeup, and facial wash: Remove and reinvigorate with one lightweight, 8.5-oz. bottle. AHAVA’s cleanser not only cleans and tones, it comes specially formulated to act as an anti-ager.

Multitask the fight against aging on multiple fronts with Olay 7-in-1 Anti-Aging Cream. Dark circles, fine lines, puffy eyes, loss of firmness, uneven texture, uneven tone, and dryness are no match for the line-and-dark-circle minimizing brush, which is gentle enough for daily application. Olay is a trusted name in anti-aging, and this cream is the perfect complement to its over-night products that work to leave you with firmer – i.e. younger-looking – skin. The tinted moisturizer works particularly well in achieving an ideal smooth coverage.

Keeping your skin soft in the summer heat is one of the season’s most important concerns… as is staying safe from pesky bugs. Hitting two of our most pressing needs is why we love Avon’s Skin So Soft Original Dry Oil Body Spray. Containing citronella that leaves behind a lemony scent and helps repel mosquitoes, this spray is best applied to post-shower damp skin for long-lasting effectiveness. It can also be used as a summer perfume that will keep those buzzing friends far and away.

We love the all-in-one, multi-use NARS stick called “The Multiple.” One stick for cheeks, eyes, body, and lips, the creamy tip goes on as powder to whichever area is most in need of sheer coverage. This product is available in a variety of great colors for all skin tones. Our recommended color, of course, is Orgasm, the wildly popular NARS-addict favorite.

It’s no secret that getting your hair to look great in the summer can be a big challenge. Sun, sand, salt, chlorine, and humidity take a toll on our hair, and that can lead to a less-than-desirable look. In order to get those gorgeous summer locks, we put these (and so many more) products to the test and did the lathering, rinsing, and repeating for you. We might even have the cleanest hair in New York City! Read on for our favorite picks for summer hair care, including the old stand-bys as well as the hottest new products available. Tip: It is important to switch off between at least two shampoos, conditioners, and styling products to get the best results.

Dry shampoo is great to use between washes because it removes the oils that build up at the roots, especially during the summer. We also like to use it when styling for added texture (like when we create a fishtail braid).
