Restorsea has been featured on Beauty Snob

As Tina Craig puts it, "It’s truly an amazing cream, I’ve even turned my close friends on to it– including celebrity stylist/designer Jeanne Yang who is now as obsessed as I am!"

Check out the article: here!

Last week Restorsea took over Bergdorf Goodman’s Beauty Level in a stampede of beauty, cocktails and skincare education. 

Co-hosted by our dear friends Kelley Lilien (Mrs. Lilien), Kristin Ess (The Beauty Departmentand Tina Craig and Kelly Cook (Snob Essentials), Patti’s appearance was a great way to introduce Restorsea's new, full line to the world (the macaroons didn't hurt either!).

Patti, Joanne and the rest of the Restorsea team were on deck to answer questions, welcome old friends ( Aliza Licht, Keren Craig, Cannon Hodge, etc) and new, and help celebrate just how far we've come in such a little time.  

See the photos and some familiar faces below!

Patti's Picks - A Natural Way to Ageless Beauty

Hermès Trilogy

Monday, June 3, 2013 4:00:52 AM America/New_York

My friendship with Tina Craig and Kelly Cook of Bag Snob is of no coincidence; I’ve always been a fine admirer of high quality purses, and my closet can attest to that!

However, while Tina and Kelly look to the runways for their inspiration, I go directly to my mom. Here I present to you the holy grail of handbags, the trifecta of sophistication: my collected (and inherited) Hermès trilogy.

1. First up is my Kelly Bag with alligator skin, custom made for my mom in 2000.  At that time I was working in Paris, and it took three trips to have the bag produced.  This first time Hermès turned me down until they realized it was for my MOTHER and not for ME—in true French fashion, “But Patti, why didn’t you say so?” The second time, we had to pick the alligator skin, and, well, what I don’t know about alligator hide could fill a book. The third and final time was to pick the hardware— “But Patti, the workshop refuses to make the bag with chrome hardware, they insist on using gold!” The best part was that in customs, afterward, we realized that the alligator was actually born and raised in Mississippi! I think he must be happy to have come home.

2. Trim Bag in amazonian rubber. Again, custom made for my mom. Alas, the rubber is CRACKING! Argh! Can someone please help?

3. Lastly, another Kelly Bag, this time in black calfskin. It was inspired by the bag Gwyneth Paltrow carried in the film, “A Perfect Murder” and one of the few pieces Hermès deigned to make with chrome hardware.
 

XOX,

Patti

Tina Craig + Kelly Cook

Who Are They: Tina Craig and Kelly Cook are the fabulous founders/chief editors of Bagsnob.com. If you’re a connoisseur of all things fashion like we are—this is the place to get all the best information.  Tina and Kelly are some seriously fashionable and business savvy mothers, being pioneers of fashion related social media platforms.

 

Restorsea: What is the craziest beauty remedy, product or service that you have tried?

Tina: I've tried lots of really crazy treatments and products. Sitting in a pool with tiny fish that nibble off the dead layer of your skin, digital acupuncture needle treatments where your face is punctured by electronic acupuncture needles 2,000 times and eating chicken butts because my grandmother told me it would make me pretty when I grew up. 

Kelly: The ODonna skin treatment uses ground up sea urchin spikes to cut through the surface so that the very powerful ingredients, Ultraquin LC, KojiLac acid, and copper peptides, will penetrate the skin. You leave this mask on all day, so you look like a freak with this yellow paste on. When you wash it off in the evening, the stinging and the abrasion is so severe you will cry. Then comes the aftermath, for 3-5 days, your entire face will peel and your face is flaming red. But once all that is done, you have baby soft skin that is so incredible you will, for a moment, feel that all of it was worth it.

 

R: What was the inspiration for your website?

T: Our love of bags of course!

K: A lifelong obsession with bags and fashion that needed an outlet before I drove my husband crazy with incessant talk about subjects he cared nothing about.

 

R: Who are your personal style and/or beauty icons?

T: Tilda Swinton. Whenever I see her in structured Haider Ackermann suits, I want to marry her.

K: I love Jennifer Lopez even though my personal style is totally different; I'm very casual and sporty. I like women who are not afraid to show their personalities.

 

R: What would you be doing if you weren’t creating content for your site?

T: I'd be creating content and shopping for my friends. I've been curating things for friends since the 3rd grade and telling people what to buy. The blog is just an extension of what I've always done, except now I'm doing it for hundreds of thousands of women (and men!) around the world. 

K: I would pretty much be doing the same thing, the only difference would that none of it would be published. I think what our readers relate to the most is the fact that we are living our lives and sharing the style, fashion and lifestyle we are actually experiencing.
 

R: What are your favorite magazines or other online publications?

T: Who What Wear, Business of Fashion, Fashionista and Style.com, Vanity Fair, Vogue, & Bazaar

K: I love reading gossip sites for the snarky writing and fashion clad celebrities. It is highly entertaining on different levels

 

R: What are you most looking forward to over the next couple of months?

T: Summer vacation with my son! We have plans for Mexico, Taiwan, China, Hawaii and Europe!

K: We have so many exciting projects in store. We are launching our new site, Snob Essentials, at the end of the month. It will be all of our channels on one aggregated site. The layout and look is amazing and will be the platform for even more exciting things to come.

 

R: What would your readers be surprised to find out about you?

T: That I'm a total bookworm and homebody (I only go out when I have to attend events or traveling. At home it's movies, videos or legos with my son most weekend nights). I don't watch TV in real time and only watch Hulu.com about once a month to catch up on what my friends tell me I'm missing out on. I much prefer curling up with a good book and a glass of champagne.

K: I am an excellent cook and even though I sound awful, I love to sing.
