PolkaSpot is serving a month-long internship as a BendelGirl for the legendary Henri Bendel. Check back here for all of the majorly important things she’s Spotted this week.
PolkaSpot’s iPhone is full of fabulous people who know a thing or two about a thing or two. They’ve all asked her for beauty tips in the past and now she’s making them return the favor to YOU. She’s generous that way.*
Sonja is one of the stars of The Real Housewives of New York on Bravo. She says, “I have a taste for luxury and luxury has a taste for ME.” Having grown up in upstate NY, she’s also a country girl. She and Polkie get along fabulously.
PS: What was the most important beauty llesson your mother taught you?

PS: What is the one thing you’ve done in the name of beauty in the past that you willll NEVER do again?
STM: Iodine and baby oil tanning with a foil reflector screen. “Sun-in” hair lightening. What were we thinking?
PS: What is the one product that you use every singlle day and why?
STM: Caudalie premier la creme comes in a gorgeous silver pump. Smells delicious, goes on like silk, looks luminous, has the Caudalie fab ingredients your skin needs.
PS: What is the beauty secret you willll pass allong to your daughter?
STM: Eat healthy, sleep well, stay active, tell the truth, believe in a higher being, love love! Oh… And bubble baths with Molton Brown oils! “Me” time, meditation or reading a good book is essential for the soul. Take time for yourself so you can be there for others when needed. That’s inner beauty.
