Because my hair is over-processed, dry and damaged, I only wash it about once a week. Which means that when I “do” it, I better do it right – or else my hair will look jacked for the next seven days. Forget a bad hair day; it’s more like a bad hair week for me. So when I’m offered CONTINUE READING
This weekend, grab your girlfriends and go see The Best Man Holiday – which hits theaters today.
On Tuesday, I attended a screening with Mama Spoiled Pretty and her BFF, Estelle – and we had so much fun. We laughed hard and cried harder (this rom-com is also a tearjerker - so bring some tissues). In fact, I got so CONTINUE READING

As you probably know, I am a marketing professional by day, a beauty blogger by night and a mom/wife 24/7. But what you may not know is that, after graduating from college, I attended law school. Ultimately, I chose a different path - which makes me much happier. What doesn't make me happy, however, are the school loans I've CONTINUE READING

OMG…stop the presses. After weeks of answering questions about her beauty secrets and favorite products, Kim Kardashian did a very smart thing…with the help of her makeup artist, Stephen Moleski, she taped a how-to video and posted it to her blog.

And pay attention…Stephen has a great tip for extending the life of your makeup brushes.
Last Thursday, nail trendsetter Rihanna got a white hot mani/pedi at the 8th Street Dashing Diva nail salon. Girlfriend is a gal on the go – as you can see, she dashed out of Dashing Diva with wet toenails.
Who’s responsible for Eva Longoria’s short new do? Her husband, Tony Parker!
“Tony cut my hair!” says Longoria. “I had to cut my hair for the show because Gabrielle has short hair,” she says. “I wore a wig in the last episode, but I didn’t want to wear a wig this whole season, so I was like, ‘I’m going to cut it!’”
She says her hairstylist, Ken Paves, forced Parker to make the first move. “He said, ‘Tony, you’re going to do the first cut, so she can’t be mad at me,’” she says. “Tony did the first snip. He did more and then he did more and then Kenny cleaned it up.”
Blake Lively, Alexis Bledel, America Ferrera and Amber Tamblyn at the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 premiere.
I have a total girl crush on America…usually, she can do no wrong in my eyes. But I must admit that I’m not loving the Amy Winehouse-inspired makeup and hair. However, she redeemed herself with a stunning strapless Brian Reyes dress and Christian Louboutin stilettos. America said, “I’m not sure if people recognized me, but I definitely got some strange looks!”
Blake is resplendent in a tangerine Gucci gown. I’m totally digging the microbraids.
Amber shocked me – and not in a good way – by wearing pants. From the photos, it looks like someone took an old bridesmaids dress and fashioned it into a jumpsuit-esque ensemble. The makeup is meh. And the hair is so boring, I’m falling asleep just looking at it. I mean, I’m sporting the same hairstyle right now…but I’m not at a Hollywood premiere standing next to Serena VanderWoodsen.
Alexis absolutely blew me away with her glowing skin and punchy lip color. This Gilmore girl certainly grew up! Her hair was pulled back in a simple (yet chic) bun, allowing her gorgeous face to take center stage. Check out those baby blues! Alexis gets my vote for best-dressed – she paired her black ribbon-trimmed dress by Mischen with strappy gladiator heels.
Kim recently rocked MAC 35 Lash for her Jimmy Kimmel appearance. She says, “When I answered questions before about fake lashes, I mentioned I wore a company called Red Cherry, which I still love, but these new MAC ones I really am into!”
