NYC (AND BEYOND): SHAMELESS SELF-PROMOTION

By Nora Zelevansky / June 24th, 2011

S-HH-BAGELS-large300

So, in addition to "Fit Like Us" for self.com, I've been working on a thing or two about a thing or two.  (I don't even know what that means.)

But anyway, I wanted to share this link to my recent essay about H&H Bagels closing its Upper West Side location.  If you've already seen it, my apologies.

Also, check out this story about brand new amazing clothing line ELKIN out of Downtown LA in C Magazine.

Happy weekend!

LA (AND BEYOND): SHAMELESS SELF PROMOTION [Supermodels/Angels]

By Nora Zelevansky / May 13th, 2011

Vs-bombshell-la_miranda-kerr_3

Rumor has it that "talking to an angel is like trying to catch a falling star.”  Still, I didn’t find the task quite so challenging at the exclusive Victoria’s Secret “Bombshell Summer” kick-off event on Wednesday afternoon.

Standing next to a supermodel?  Now, that’s daunting.  In fact, a picture exists of Miranda Kerr above and me, but I'm hoping it will never see the light of day (for the love of all things good!).

Anyway, I took the self-esteem lumps for Style.com, chatting up the fresh-faced, Balenciaga-clad VS “Angel” (a.k.a. Mrs. Orlando Bloom) between manicures, hand massages and makeovers at LA’s notorious SkyBar.

Read all about it and Victoria's Secret events – that you can attend – all over the country in the next few weeks!

Persephenie

Just wanted to post links to a few of my latest on-line stories, as they may be of interest (or at least, it may be of interest to me for you all to read, re-tweet, FB etc.).

Yeah.  I said it.

Impressed?  I'm working with my therapist to make my needs known.  And, by therapist, I mean facialist.

So, here goes:

Persephenie (formerly of natural perfume shop Blunda) just launched her inaugural beauty product line and, at the end of May, will launch her first signature fragrances.  Style.com

Chloe Sevigny and Michael C. Hall teamed up with Kiehl's to create special labels for a new white clay masque to raise money for charity!  Style.com

Maya Yogev (creator of Grai) just launched her new bag line, MK Totem.  Daily Candy

I'm clumsy.  Are you?  Read my essay on being athletically-challenged. MyDaily.com [AOL]

LA (BEVERLY HILLS): SHAMELESS SELF-PROMOTION [FOUR SEASONS ULTRA FACIAL]

By Nora Zelevansky / February 3rd, 2011

20110202_bevhillsfourseasons

I have big hopes for fashion and The Oscars.

"Why?" you might ask, since the Golden Globes was a disaster of shoulder pads, champagne evening gowns fit for eighty-year-olds and unsightly flower appendages (ahem, Natalie and Michelle).  Well, I'm an optomist.  And I believe that even Hollywood can be redeemed.

Hallelujah.

Regardless of the dresses though, every awards season brings new red carpet skin treatments to help celebrities get that elusive glow.  So, I covered The Four Seasons Beverly Hills' newest service, The ULTRA Facial for Mondette.

I'd like thank my cats and you all for, well, just being you.

So, I've decided to take time out of my busy beach lolling schedule to actually write a post.

What?  There may be a hurricane coming.  I need to take what sun and Atlantic Ocean swimming I can get, mofos.

ANYWAY … Travel + Leisure posted my story about the bestest Top Chef restaurants today, so thought you all might like to check it out.

Tune in next week, when I'm back in black.  (That means in LA and writing the blog again, if you didn't understand.)

Oh and top off that nose job with a cup of tea, as today's Daily Candy about Marcelita L'Art et Le Thé's new tea salon is also my story.  Cheers!
