2012 is days away — what better time than now to find a signature scent for the new year?

On my quest for my next favorite fragrance, I linked up with Laurence Bouard, the newly appointed Director of Mauboussin on New York City’s Madison Avenue. This was my first trip to their recently renovated five-story townhouse. The store is elegant and whimsical with a touch of 1900’s Paris. At Mauboussin, they boast that “luxury should be the universal language.” The French jewelry house manages to make luxury affordable with a broad range of inspired fragrances, hand-crafted by master perfumers.

“I grew up in Minnesota but then I went to school out in San Francisco. Um. . . I moved to New York and when I started at Refinery I was maybe the third editor they had. I was number six on their staff, now we’ve grown to maybe fifty people with a huge team. I’m the Global Editor, so I manage everything that shows up on the homepage for Refinery. I source freelancers and contributors that have really niche interests and I also write stories and trend reports.”

“I’ve been modeling for like ten years so I don’t really need to work with an agency anymore which is cool. I still have one in Tokyo, Seoul, and Stockholm but not in New York. I also have a blog where I write about interesting things; mostly it all revolves around myself and people that I meet. When I was living in Tokyo I found writing to be much easier since everything felt new and different compared to New York. I’m actually going to be in Tokyo for all of January and blogging for Milk Made.”

New York lawyer turned fashion assistant, Preetma Singh, is a rare combination of quirky, smart and beautiful. I went for a stroll through Central Park with the Canadian native and got her to spill all her beauty secrets. Enjoy!

Like most ladies, I am always on the quest for the perfect mascara—the one that is simultaneously clump free and will make you look like you just threw on the best set of falsies effortlessly. I tend to keep a few of my favorite mascaras on deck and the most recent addition to my arsenal is Givenchy’s Phenomen’Eyes Effet Extension.

“I’m an online editor at Women’s Wear Daily so I help manage WWD.com, updating online content and making sure that it looks good and fresh; it’s a really fast-paced environment. I also do some party reporting and feature writing. I’d say writing is my strongest suit. Before WWD, I was working for the jewelry designer Tom Binns – I helped with the launch of their shop in the West Village and with some PR stuff. And before that, I was at New York Magazine working for their fashion blog, The Cut.”

There weren’t many people on the streets of SoHo this afternoon, but the cold didn’t stop Brazilian beauty Tassara Vilaca from bundling up and heading outside. The Trump model hit the streets sporting a natural look in Maybelline concealer and Chanel blush.

During Art Basel I came across Christina Steinbrecher, Art Director of Art Moscow. Decked in blue Celine from head to toe and sporting a bold red lip, she was hard to miss. During her last thirty minutes in Miami we chatted briefly about the only two beauty products she brought with her overseas.

Chicago-based artist Dzine takes grooming very seriously, so much so that he has turned the traditional manicure on its head and into a work of art. He teamed up with Standard Press to launch —“Nailed” a comprehensive history of nail art and culture from around the world. To celebrate the book’s release Dzine and Societe Perrier transformed a hotel room at The Standard, Miami Beach into a makeshift nail salon, “Dzine’s Imperial Nails.”

“I didn’t always want to model my whole life; When I was younger I would actually always pray to get taller. My dad’s 6’3” and my mom’s 5’8” so I was always hoping to be at least 5’9”. I grew like three inches during my freshman year of high school. I just started modeling a little bit in Miami and then, I came during a school break, to New York and fell into it. I got the idea to model when I was nine, I was in Whole Foods and there was this former model who came up to me and told me that I should try it because I have a good look and this little skinny body. So I got the idea in my head then and when I finally was tall enough I tried it out.”
