After the summer, I am always looking to make my skin glow again. My face is filled with lots of extra sun and pigmentation after spending time outdoors. Beaute Oblige clinic opened on Madison Avenue and became the secret of chic New Yorkers, fashion editors, designers, and celebrities. Clients have included “Modern Family” actress Sofia Vergara, “Real Housewife of New York” LuAnn de Lesseps, and many fashion designers, stylists, and influencers. Aesthetician Camille Obadia says, “[My] skincare line battles pollution, increases oxygenation, and maintains good quality collagen, to keep skin healthy and fight the anti-aging process.”

Who doesn’t love beautiful jewels? Aurora Lopez Mejia creates wearable reminders and sculptures that are meant to document one’s personal history and journey. All pieces are to be one day passed on and shared with loved ones as modern-day heirlooms. Her craftsmanship and devout respect of ancient civilizations have led her to create unique talismans that embrace the power and etymology of words. Always in collaboration with her patrons, these commissioned, one-of-a-kind pieces are created to inspire one’s personal empowerment and transcendence.
I personally love her one-of-a-kind rings that you can have engraved with your children’s names and life beads. You can have your favorite inspirations and words handcrafted onto each piece, and as your family grows, your life beads can grow.

New York City mom Amanda Sanders, an image consultant, launched a men’s pocket square company: Well Suited NYC. As a stylist, she discovered a need and a demand for a pocket square that was easy for a man to use. These are pre-folded and fused together, as opposed to the traditional pocket square that most men don’t know how to fold — which ends up bulky in their suit pockets. DivaDads will look FabULyss sporting these pocket squares for work and for dressing up.
Happy back-to-school time, parents and kids!
