I wanted to take a moment to share with you what I've learned about geisha in my time with them. Like many, I read the fictional novel that miscasts geisha as prostitutes.

Traveling as much as we do from the West Coast to the East Coast and back again can be quite the transition, especially during winter. From wearing shorts and sandals in sunny California to being bundled up in front of a fireplace in Pennsylvania, the WEN by Chaz Dean team always spends the better part of December, January, and February eagerly awaiting the warmer weather of spring.
This year, I wanted to create a new seasonal formulation that captures the fresh scents of spring. Inspired by my childhood, WEN Spring Orange Blossom reminds me of days spent racing past the orange groves in Simi... Continue Reading

Everyone is gearing up for the biggest Red Carpet event of the year. We are in L.A. for our broadcast on Friday night. There is also a segment on bethenny this Thursday that talks about Red Carpet Glamour. One of the most important places in L.A. right now is the Kate Somerville Mediskin Clinic.
