Bath & Body Works Cooling Gel Lotion Needs A New Name


A few weeks ago, I paid a visit to my local Bath & Body Works store. I was on the hunt for a tropical-smelling body wash that wouldn't break the bank, and B&BW seemed like a good place to search. When I entered the store, I was greeted my a really nice saleswoman who asked me what I was CONTINUE READING

Laura Mercier Master Class: Makeup Bag Must-Haves in Your 30s


Every month, my girlfriends from college and I get together for dinner in the Philadelphia area. We started this tradition about two years ago, and - of course - we have a great time catching up and reminiscing!  Most of them are product-obsessed (like me), and most have been through some sort of make-up introductory when we became "of age" to wear it.  Now CONTINUE READING

Dermadoctor Physical Chemistry


One of my all-time favorite products is Dermadoctor KP Duty, a dual action body exfoliator that combines the benefits of a chemical peel and microdermabrasion. It was developed to treat chicken skin - those little red bumps that many people get on their upper arms. But, for years, I've been using it to exfoliate my legs pre-shave.  There's really no body exfoliator CONTINUE READING

Jason Wu Calls Michelle Obama’s Choice of His Dress "Thrilling, Emotional and Inspiring"

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities, Fashion, Fashion Week | 5 Comments

michelle+obama+inauguration Jason Wu Calls Michelle Obamas Choice of His Dress "Thrilling, Emotional and Inspiring"Jason Wu hit the fashion lottery tonight. In December, the 26-year old Tawainese-American designer submitted three dresses to Michelle Obama for consideration, but considered himself a long-shot. Wu had no idea that Michelle Obama had chosen his one-shouldered, embellished, off-white gown until the President and First Lady took the stage at the Neighborhood Ball. “I found out tonight…along with the rest of the world,” Wu told CNN.

“It’s thrilling, it’s emotional and it’s inspiring. For a young designer, I couldn’t ask for anything more than this. It’s my dream come true.”

michelle+obama+jason+wu Jason Wu Calls Michelle Obamas Choice of His Dress "Thrilling, Emotional and Inspiring"Wu said he created the dress to reflect the first couple and the new administration. He wanted to give Michelle a gown with a “dream-like quality.”

On inauguration night, Wu won’t be celebrating his newfound celebrity. He doesn’t have time. With New York Fashion Week only three weeks away, he will be burning the midnight oil – working on his Fall 2009 collection.

When asked his thoughts about Michelle Obama’s status as an emerging style icon, Wu said, “She’s versatile. She can do it all. She is amazing. She has her own sense of style and there’s nothing better than that.”

Take A Brow, Michelle Obama: Your Softer Arches Are Just The Change You Needed

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities, Eyebrows, Fashion Week | 1 Comment

michelle+obama Take A Brow, Michelle Obama: Your Softer Arches Are Just The Change You NeededIf you’re like me, you can’t get enough of Michelle Obama. Her fashion and beauty choices keep me entertained, on my toes, and taking copious notes.

Last Fall, while at New York Fashion Week, I got to talking with the Bobbi Brown. Bobbi was sporting an Obama ’08 pin, so we started chatting about Michelle’s makeup and favorite Bobbi Brown products. Towards the end of the conversation, I asked Bobbi her opinion of Michelle’s eyebrows; I told Bobbi that, though Michelle can do no wrong in my eyes, her arches could use some softening. Bobbi smiled and nodded, adding that if she was Michelle’s makeup artist, she would give Michelle a less angular arch.

Around the same time, Michelle Obama’s actual makeup artist, Chicago-based makeup artist Ingrid Grimes-Myles, was getting the same criticism about Michelle’s brows.

“When she started getting that feedback—I have a rule: When three or more people give you feedback, that means hundreds are talking about it—then what I began to do is bring them down and train them down,” Grimes-Myles said.

If you take a close look at Michelle’s current brows and compare them the ones she sported at the Democratic National Convention, you’ll notice that the arch is less exaggerated.

The Chicago Tribune has a great article about Michelle’s brow evolution, which includes some tasty beauty tidbits (Michelle loves MAC lip pencils and gloss).
