Leave it to Nest to discover a purveyor of wicked cool audio gadgets that are both high performance and sexy. ShopTalk intern Margaux Anbouba found these Molami nappa leather knot earbuds on a recent trip to our beloved McKinney Avenue gift shop. Swedish Molami combines function and fashion in these Bight Knotted Earbuds that come with braided fabric cords, sizing pads, an adapter, and a protective pouch. Available in both white and black. Consider it musical eardrum jewelry. $150 at Nest.
Liz forwarded over a press release this morning with this tidbit:
Downsize Fitness is a Dallas gym that caters to those 50 pounds or more overweight until they ‘graduate’ to a goal weight of 220 lbs. It is a revolutionary concept that is capturing local and national attention… Each Downsize Fitness member has a coach that helps them each step of the way, with exercises and nutrition programs geared towards their members.
I don’t mean to sound out of the fitness loop–okay, I’m out of the fitness loop–but, I didn’t know this existed. I know there are gyms exclusively for ladies, but overweight-only fitness studios are news to me. I like the concept. The Dallas location of Downsize Fitness on Inwood Road is one of three, and it emphasizes three components: fitness, nutrition, and support. I wish more gyms offered a comprehensive program. (Having a juice bar doesn’t count.)
It’s Day 2 of our week of holiday makeovers.
This week, we’ve got five local makeup artists who are sharing their favorite festive makeup looks and the must-have tools. I’ve worked with or experienced first-hand the talent of each one of these beauty gurus, and I’m thrilled with each of the final selections.
Up next: a classic, winged eye with gold shadow and a pretty pink pout.
The Artist: Brandy Adams, celebrity hair and makeup artist (and owner of WAAS Gallery)
The Look: “Class in a Dash–Liquid Love that Dazzles,” glowing skin, highlighted eyes with gold/bronze sparkle shadow, warm blush with highlighter on cheek bones, classic liquid liner, and berry toned lipstick.
