This oughta hold you over for the weekend:

We love Freebies
Calling all vegetarians, animal lovers and freebie fans!

Surfer Girl in the City
If you love sun-streaks in your hair, but a trip to Maui to for the real deal is a little…improbable, fake it at Minardi Salon, which if offering a pre-summer deal (25%off) on highlights with their top colorists Paula and Myrian, plus free consultation by Beth Minardi.

A Trip to CA Without Having to Board a Plane
When I have the chance to fly to LA, I tend to go a little credit card crazy with those super-hip, indie labels that us New Yorkers have little access too. The Golden State has their own rules when it comes to fashion and now, upper east side boutique, G.C. William teaches The Big Apple how to play the game. With hard-to-find designers, such as Evolve, Emerge, Bulga and Casting, this is worth the subway ride uptown, a destination travel bargain especially compared to the economical prices of Jet Blue!

1137 Madison Ave @ 85th Street

Hot Hair, Hot Party
On Monday, April 18th, Warren Tricomi, purveyors of beautiful hair, are celebrating the launch of their PureStrength hair care line at trendy meatpacking nightclub, AER. Enjoy complementary cocktails (8-10pm), a fashion show featuring the latest hair trends (9pm) and learn why good things happen in threes, per Tricomi’s 3-C system.
