Sims, a former dancer and choreographer, is also the star of his own raucous reality show on Bravo, Invite Only Cabo.

1. The healthiest way of wearing your hair is embracing your natural texture without using any heat. Use styling products the got2b kinkier collection to add shine and bounce to you curls.
Product pick: Long-lasting curl definition doesn’t have to come at the expense of flirty, finger-twirl-able locks. got2b kinkier gloss ‘n define curling mousse gives moveable and weightless hold for touchable feel and shiny bouncy looking curls while helping to control unruly frizz. Give curls the ultimate boost with this luxurious mousse. Work into towel-dried hair for jaw-dropping ringlets.

2. Always use a good heat protectant if you have to use heat. Hot tools should also not surpass 375 degrees.
Product pick: In a world where women battle with heat styling appliances daily, it’s reassuring to know that divine intervention is now available from göt2b guardian angel flat iron balm. Developed with heavenly hair in mind, göt2b unlocks the secret to superior heat protection plus advanced styling support.

4.  Use shampoos with natural oils and keratin and don’t shampoo your hair on a daily basis, which can strip your hair of oil. If you have buildup, try to rinse and condition. 
Product picks: Long hair brushes against your shoulders or back leaving it weak: often breaking it. To keep hair soft and healthy-looking it needs intense care that deeply restores from length to tip.

Schwarzkopf Stylist Tip:
· Rinse with cool water to close the cuticle locking in the caring ingredients provided by this sublime repair conditioner.
· For a deeper treatment use GLISS™ Oil Nutritive Split-End Serum after conditioning.

5. Don’t go too long without trimming your split and dead ends. The quicker you let them go the healthier and fuller your hair will be.

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

Soak Up the Last Weeks of Summer Sun At The Rockaway Hotel

Summer is winding down, but there's still time to soak up the sun -- while wearing sunscreen, chic shades and a protective hat or sun visor, of course. If you're in New York City, The Pool at The Rockaway Hotel + Spa  is a cool place to swim, lounge and discreetly people watch while swaying to beat of ambient music.  It's a vibe! Day passes are available for non-hotel guests Monday through Thursday (excluding private events, 10 am -7 pm).  Located in the heart of the Rockaway Beach community in Queens, New York, the Rockaway Hotel is just a few short blocks from the sand and surf. Besides the outdoor pool,  the  newly built 84,000 square foot hotel offers around 60 guest rooms, a restaurant, a rooftop bar, and a large event space. And it's a nice addition to the area.  When my husband and I visited the popular pool, we enjoyed yummy sips and bites poolside. Lounging chairs are first come, first serve so the early bird gets the spot of their choice. After chilling at t

SEE Eyewear Opens a New Brooklyn Store

Whoever said guys don't make passes at girls who wear glasses hasn't  seen SEE Eyewear . The eclectic eyewear brand offers fashionable yet affordable prescription and non-prescription  eyeglasses  and sunglasses.  SEE stocks a limited quantity of each pair of its unique glasses (about 80), so you probably won't run  into another subway rider rocking the same specs.  Recently, SEE opened a new store in the hipster-hangout  Williamsburg  section of Brooklyn and  Everything She Wants  got a sneak peek.  The new Brooklyn store is located on Bedford Avenue and Everything She Wants readers will receive a 20 percent discount in-store with the code "BEDFORDAVE."  I was gifted my first pair of designer reading glasses with no-glare lenses to protect me from eye-straining computer use.  There are so many cool styles, it was hard to pick just one. But I narrowed my favorites down to three, and ultimately selected a chic pair of cat eye, tortoise shell frames. I can
