How would sum up your experience of being a Head Judge on Britain’s Next Top Model?
It was incredible, such an honor and a bit of a dream to be honest. It's where my career started and I learnt a few things on the show that I have carried with me and been able to apply throughout my career.

When the last few months have been spent hiding your pins underneath trousers and tights and your Winter getaway is soon approaching, it's time to fight any unwanted fur and get yourself feeling beach confident. For most women that signifies the dreaded chore of shaving or maybe even an hour of pain for a meticulously smooth bikini line - but for Ministry of Waxing expert and head trainer Chloe Scriminger, prepping your body for the beach should be about as pain-free as your blow dry and mani-pedi. Having specialised in advanced hair removal techniques for the last 7 years - if there's anyone to give the lowdown and do's and don'ts of waxing - It's Chloe!

Every now and then, our complexions, bodies and skin all need a pick me up - especially when we've all enjoyed a good dose of sunshine; and when Melissa need's hers, she looks to an expert in non-invasive dermatology, Dr. Rita Rakus.

If we could name one beauty routine that Melissa frequents, it would be Dry Brushing.
She has been an avid dry brusher long before its recent popularity.
It seems as though Kale, Kombucha, and Dry Brushes have all been using the same publicist lately!
All jokes aside, we are feeling a bit gloomy with the realization that summer has hastily escaped us, but why not enter this transition with a graceful 'shedding' ?

We're feeling a bit Bittersweet this morning.
Bitter because other than a few more brands that are showing today, New York Fashion Week has officially wrapped.
The Kardashians will soon be catching their flights to LA, Anna Dello Russo will be heading back to Milan, statuesque model sightings on the streets of NYC will be less frequent, and the hottest after-parties that have kept the city exceptionally buzzing all week will come to a halt.
Don't feel bad just yet, some of us locals are feeling pretty sweet. Sweet because we are less stressed-out about what to wear. Looking good during fashion week is crucial as you never know where you will end up after work! Not to mention we have more yellow cabs for the hailing now that NYFW is over. What a relief!
After carefully scanning the runways of Lincoln Center, we've selected a few stand-out trends that we think are worth writing home about.
NYFW always pushes the envelope, and we are delighted to share our recap with you!
Keep scrolling to see what trends hit NYFW SS2016 in the Big Apple this year!

As we enter our 2nd week of September, the last of us are returning to our desks from our holidays, escorting our little ones on their first day of school, and re-adjusting to our daily routines while daydreaming about the coconut cocktails we had in St. Barts just last week. We find remnants of sand in our beach totes and ask ourselves, how long will my tan last? Would I be able to re-create that fresh-caught ceviche we had on our boat that day? And how on earth am I going to get my hair back to normal after all that sun & salt-water? We've got the ticket for your hair qualms, and with a name like 'Hair After the Sun', what else could you need? Besides, Melissa is all for the sexy and easy beach-hair look, but all in moderation. Our hair needs sunblock, and soothing cream after a burn just like our skin does, ladies! A little T.L.C. for your locks never hurt anyone.

They say that the face is the 'Entryway to the Self'. Well ladies, that's a LOT of pressure on our hands(and cheeks).
Being that our face is the first thing people see and the last thing they remember, it has always been a priority here at Odabash HQ to discover and share the latest on how to keep our 'Entryway to the Self' looking fresh & pampered. Melissa, being the beauty & skincare maven that she is, resides on the front lines when it comes to the newest potions, and we get to hear it from her first. Her latest obsession? The exfoliate foaming cleanser, by suki® skincare.

Are you ladies as fond of the Birchbox craze as much as we are?
Developed by two fierce, female Harvard Business School entrepreneurs Katia Beauchamp and Hayley Barna, the idea for a monthly subscription box full of sample-sized beauty products was born. For those of us that do most of our shopping online and don't have the time to hit the nearest Sephora (our favorite) to test something out, this box full of luxe products is the answer. They even go as far as customizing the goods, based on your beauty profile. Whether you have curly or straight locks, dry or combo skin, they select the best for you and only you. We absolutely love that. Because let's face it, beauty comes in so many facets.
