4 Beautiful Ways to Survive Hurricane Irene

The hurricane wreaking havoc along the East coast and reportedly heading for New York City.  This weekend the NYC subway system has been shut down; according to the New York Times all 468 subway stations and 840 miles of tracks. C'mon Irene!

Since it seems we'll be spending a lot of time indoors, it's the perfect time to finish that novel, catch up on work you've been avoiding, watch a Lifetime movie marathon, or better yet, try out some new beauty products.

Here's what's on Everything She Wants' hurricane weekend beauty agenda:

1) Condition my hair with Philip Kingsley Elasticizer.  This award-winning, pre-shampoo treatment was originally created for Audrey Hepburn and promises to deliver elasticity, bounce and shine to hair.

2) Wash my hair using Shea Butter Curl Activating Shampoo by Beautiful Curls.  This organic, fair trade shampoo is best for curly to tightly coiled hair types. The sulfate-free blend of shea butter soap and plant extracts gently cleans the scalp and hair without stripping natural oils. It's infused with virgin coconut oil for maximum curl retention and comfrey leaf extract to improve hair strength and to soften coarse and extra curly hair.  The shampoo is naturally scented with raspberry fruit and ylang ylang flower extracts.

3) Give myself an at-home facial with Queen Helene's tried-and-true Mint Julep Masque and Queen Helene's new Pomegranate & Raspberry Natural Facial Scrub.

4) If my darling kitty cat Gracie will allow me and we still have electricity and running water, I'll attempt her first shampoo with Furminator's Deshedding Shampoo and Conditioner for Dogs and Cats.  I'm not sure how successful that will be.  But if you have a dog, another new product worth trying is Honest Clean's Organic Dog Shampoo by Honest Pet Products.  This gentle castile soap is free of synthetic preservatives and dyes.
