New Year, New You: Healthy Hair Products at Whole Body

Let's start fresh in the new year by taking better care of ourselves from the inside out. And one of the best places to shop for natural and organic beauty, bath and hair products is at Whole Body by Whole Foods Market.

Everything She Wants recently perused the aisles at a Whole Body in New York City in search of new hair products and this is what we found:

WiseWays Herbals Goldilocks Hair Oil ($10): The great thing about Whole Body is that you'll discover products you've never seen before.  We were looking for a hair growth stimulating oil, and Voila, we found this one containing extracts of organic Basil, Nettle & Rosemary Leaf, Lavender Flower & Burdock Root, and Jojoba and Coconut oils.

Giovanni Eco Chic Hair Care ($8.99): Formulated especially for dry, damaged hair, the 2chic Avocado & Olive Oil Ultra-Moist Shampoo, Conditioner and Deep Deep Moisture Hair Mask will leave your hair feeling soft and silky smooth and looking healthier than ever.  We've tried the products and love 'em.

Avalon Organics Scalp Treatment Tea Tree ($10.50): This shampoo and conditioner are infused with Aloe and vitamins to soothe skin irritation for lasting scalp comfort and strong, shiny and nourished hair. We like to tingly feeling from the tea tree oil.  Try using the conditioner as a deep treatment and leave it on for 45 minutes under a shower cap.

Beautiful Curls Shea Butter Curl Activating products ($12 - $14): Beautiful Curls sulfate-free Shea Butter Curl Activating Shampoo and Curl Activating Cream have received rave reviews for use on curly to kinky hair types.  We have them in our beauty closet and they're next on our "to try" list.

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

It's the end of an era. Conway discount stores are closing . As of this weekend, a sign on the sole Herald Square location (34th Street btwn 7th and 8th Ave) says the store will close in "7 Days." Before I relocated to New York City, I was introduced to the discount chain while on a bus trip from Baltimore.  I recall the first time I saw Conway's signature pink bags carried by hurried shoppers in midtown. And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store. One regretful ensemble: Lime green and white checkered pants with a matching lime green

David's Bridal Has Fun, Flirty and Fab Party Dresses for Fall 2011

Everything She Wants wishes the David's Bridal store in Manhattan was open when I exchanged "I do's."  The budget-friendly brand offers a bevy of beautiful wedding dresses that start at $299 (with many on sale for under $100), and are available from size 0 to 16 and 16W to 26W for plus-size brides.  Designer gowns by Vera Wang (White by Vera Wang), Oleg Cassini and Galina are priced higher. Stylist  Nicole Brewer  works with David's Bridal and walked me through an exclusive blogger preview at the spacious, light-filled Chelsea store. New for fall 2011, David's Bridal introduced the modern DB Studio Collection inspired by the hottest looks from the red carpet and the biggest royal wedding in decades. So get your Kate and Pippa replicas online and at select DB stores. Me in dress pick #1 with stylist Nicole Brewer. The biggest surprise, however, is the brand's stylish selection of special occasion and party dresses that start at just $79.9

4 Travel Essentials for a Clean and Safe Trip

Travel takes a lot more planning and preparation these days.  If you're like me, in addition to packing versatile and comfy clothing, accessories and footwear, and essential toiletries and beauty products, your travel checklist also includes several PPE options. KN95 masks, hand sanitizer, antibacterial wipes and gloves. Check! To help you keep your PPE game on point, here are four new travel-sized sanitizing products that Everything She Wants recently discovered. Sanitizing Hand Wipe Mitts ($12.99 for a pack of ten) : Winter may be over, but here is a pair of mittens you might want to wear all year round. R eportedly the first wearable wipe that provides a protective liner between you and all surfaces you touch, this multi-use sanitizing mitt kills germs and 99.9% of bacteria on your hands. T his new mitt also reduces the number of wipes needed and makes it easy to keep hands safe and clean on the go – just think: no contact with hotel doorknobs, shopping carts, elevators, airport
