Hi Everyone,

We have a new Conspirator: Jay! Everyone still seems really excited about this segment which is awesome. Are you guys checking out what everyone’s using? I know I’ve jotted down a few mud masks I need to pick up.

Meet Jay: PR professional, music aficionado, and world- traveler. I met Jay and his husband Adam a few years ago through a mutual friend. Any given night you can find us at their apartment with Jay DJing amazing songs you haven’t heard in 100+ years. He’ll know every fact about them too; he’s honestly a wealth of knowledge, it’s incredible. Jay is loyal, kind, and if you tell him a secret he can keep it. If I am going to gossip I say “VAULT!” right before hoping it goes nowhere. But when I talk to Jay, I don’t even need to preface. He’s that trustworthy.

So take a look, check out the links, check out Jay tips (he uses fantastic products and always looks debonair), and enjoy!

Who: Jay Martin Williams, 31

Hometown: Upper Brooksville, NY

Currently resides: Murray Hill, NY

Style Icon: “Harry Styles. He has the perfect combo of today’s youth and yesterday’s influences. Always willing to try something unique, but with thoughtful restraint.”

Beauty Icon: “Alex Loomans. Alex honestly has that perfect model mix of boy and man with his entire look. His body is youthful, but athletic, masculine, yet not overworked. Skin that looks like he was born on a planet without UV rays.”

Go-To Beauty secret/ quick fix: “Laser hair removal— people with curly hair can break out, but it’s not about acne secondarily. I’ve always been a fan of a smooth look, so encourage the investment in any area you typically shave or want to avoid ingrown hairs. Your skin will smooth out like magic— your face, chest…other area’s…Couple this with routine microdermabrasian and it’s the perfect combo to take everything ten years back.”
