Tatcha, I'm So Glad I Gotcha


I'm home on maternity leave, so I spend an inordinate amount of time nursing my daughter, burping her and changing her diapers - all the while, watching hours of QVC. I don't know what it is, but I am mesmerized by QVC demonstrations. If I'm channel surfing and I happen to land on QVC, it's damn near impossible for CONTINUE READING

Bath & Body Works Cooling Gel Lotion Needs A New Name

When I entered the store, I was greeted my a really nice saleswoman who asked me what I was CONTINUE READING

How To Get Hot Hair Like Kim Kardashian

kim+kardashian+hair How To Get Hot Hair Like Kim Kardashian
Having a bad hair day? Week? Year? Lifetime?!?!?!? Don’t worry…Kim Kardashian is “here to help.” Below are some tips she recently shared on her website:

Kat asks:
If you are ever free from your busy schedule, can you do a tutorial on how you do your daily hair style? It’s so GORGEOUS!!!

Kim answers:
Thank you, Kat! I try not to wash or style my hair everyday because that is just too much stress on anyone’s hair.

Celeste asks:
I absolutely love your hair! It always looks beautiful and healthy! I especially love it in the episode, where you told your family you were posing in PLAYBOY. In that episode your hair has these great curls that are tight but loose at the same time. How were you able to make it look like that?

Kim answers:
I am not the greatest at curling my hair myself, so when you see mine curly it’s probably been done by my hair stylist. My hair holds curls really well, so it usually lasts a few days. If yours holds curl well, then you can keep that style and maybe add a new curl or two (or maybe just an extra dash of product) the next day to freshen up the look! For the Playboy shoot, my hair was curled with a curling iron and I think I did it the day before, so it fell out nicely.

Curly Q asks:
Hey Kim, I admire your hair a lot! It’s dark, long, and gorgeous. How do you style it when you wake up, go hang out, or even go to events? I have dark, long curly hair, and whether I straighten or “curl” it, it never turns out like yours.

Kim answers:
Hey, Curly Q! My hair is bone straight, but I can pass along some useful information: If you can get an ionic straightener, that may help your hair a lot to flat iron the curls out. They say the ionic straighteners and curlers are the best!

Fallon asks:
How do you do your hair? It always looks so gorgeous!

Kim answers:
I always put volumizers and thickening spray in my hair and blow dry it. I love fully, sexy hair! I also always tease the top part of my hair by the crown of my head to give it more of a lift!

Moraqy asks:
Hey Kim, I just wanna say that you look absolutely gorgeous without makeup. I want to know if it’s possible for you to post a video showing us how you curl ur hair? Because me and my older sister LOVE how you do your hair. We always Google pictures of you because we tried many times to do it like you but unfortunately it never turns out like your hair, so if you could do that I would REALLY appreciate it!

Kim answers:
I will definitely do a hair video blog as well! Maybe I can recruit my hair dresser Clyde to teach me on camera. Stay tuned!

Liz asks:
Kim, my hair is dark like yours and I wanted to know what you thought about adding color to your hair as in highlights? I would love to know what you think.

Kim answers:
I have thought about it so many times but haven’t done it. I think dark hair is pretty so I am sticking with it like this for now. My sister Khloe did all-over highlights recently, though, and it looks great!

Stacy asks:
Hi Kim, I am a huge fan and I watch your show and even the reruns. I would love to know how you get your hair so shiny and healthy looking. Is it hair extensions and, if so, how long is your real hair? I know you have given us your makeup tips but could you please give us your hair tips? I have long brown hair but get lots of split ends. Thank you. icon smile How To Get Hot Hair Like Kim Kardashian

Kim answers:
I always change up my shampoos and conditioners to kind of shock the hair. If you use the same stuff every day, your hair gets used to it and doesn’t give the same bounce and shiny affect. So I switch products every other day. I also don’t wash my hair everyday. It strips the hair of it’s natural oils and can prevent it from growing longer. I also make sure to use an oil at the bottom of my hair every time I shower; like Biosilk or some split end mender. It really helps! If you are also laying out in the sun or going to be in the pool, condition your hair while you are laying out. It looks wet like you were just in the pool but moisturizes it and protects it from the sun!

Kim Kardashian – The Perfume

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities, Fragrance, Kim Kardashian, Perfume | 2 Comments

kim+kardashian+perfume Kim Kardashian – The Perfume
Ever wonder what Kim Kardashian smells like? You’ll soon find out because a Kim K fragrance is currently in the works. She recently wrote on her blog:

It has always been a dream of mine to start my own perfume business, since I love to mix fragrances together and come up with new and different scents! I hope you understand my total excitement as I let you, the readers of my blog, become the first to know that I am creating my own fragrance!!!

I have decided to work with New Wave Fragrances, who also distribute Ed Hardy and True Religions fragrances.

It all started when my mom introduced me to famous perfumer Caroline Sabas from Gras, France. She and I have been working together to create a scent that is uniquely me that I can share with everyone!

I have also hired local designer Scott Oshry to help me create the perfect bottle for my fragrance.

It is in the development stages, but we hope to have it in stores by next May – Mother’s Day! It will be available in the U.S., Germany, England, Australia and Japan.

I hope you LOVE what I come up with!

P Diddy Does Bikini Waxes?

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities, Waxing | 1 Comment

p+diddy P Diddy Does Bikini Waxes?
Think it takes you a long time getting ready to go out? You probably don’t primp as long as Sean “P Diddy” Combs. But considering he’s one of the most well-groomed gents in the business, it should come as no surprise. The media mogul recently sat down with the UK’s Daily Mail for a piece entitled, How to… Party like P Diddy. Here’s an excerpt:

I have my own particular ritual for getting ready, which takes about two hours, but before I settle on an outfit, I like to try on lots of different ones, and I’ll have a long bath beforehand.
I may change twice in an evening and I’ll always have a spare outfit on hand if something happens to the one I’m wearing.

The dress code for the Hollywood party was ‘sexy formal’, and I loved the outfit I eventually wore, which was a vintage white tuxedo jacket. I had a real ‘black Sinatra’ look going on. Otherwise, I like to wear things from my Sean John line.

My clothing line is like fashion Viagra. While I’m getting ready I like to relax with a drink – vodka and lemonade – and listen to my music, usually some James Brown.

Then I’ll have a manicure and pedicure – and yes, I wax as well. Grooming’s very important and men owe it to women to make sure they’re well groomed.

I wax my privates. I’ll also wear my fragrance, Unforgivable Black. You can tell a lot by a man’s fragrance, and either you have good taste or you can smell like your grandfather. In everything I do, I visualise myself either putting clothes on or taking them off.

Kim Kardashian’s Favorite Bronzer

kim kardashian Kim Kardashians Favorite Bronzer
Yesterday on her blog, Kim Kardashian answered some tanning questions. Here’s an excerpt, for all of you Kim fans…

Mona asks:

Hey Kim! I’d really love your “sun-kissed” look, what is your favorite make-up bronzer to use on your face/body??

Kim answers:
I love MAC bronzers! I try to use a darker pressed powder like NC45, instead of bronzers with shimmer, because it tends to look to shiny sometimes.

Rihanna is a ray of sunshine in a Giambattista Valli gown. Her eye makeup is perfection, but I can’t say that I’m loving the matte metlot shade on her lips.

First Comes Love, Then Comes Marriage, Then Comes Luscious Pink

luscious+pink First Comes Love, Then Comes Marriage, Then Comes Luscious Pink
This August, Mariah Carey will unveil Luscious Pink, her second fragrance with Elizabeth Arden.

“This scent is feminine, flirtatious and fun, and truly reflects where I am in my life now, after an incredible year,” Mariah says. “The response from my fans with my debut scent was overwhelming, and I can’t wait to see what happens with my second Luscious fragrance.”

Luscious Pink, a sparkling floral, has top notes of Sicilian bergamot, Ocean Breeze accord and sparkling Bellini accord; a heart of Tahitian Tiare petals, lily of the valley and pink peony, and a drydown of bright blond woods, creamy sandalwood and white musk, which has been described as “a floral melody that is as enveloping as Mariah’s voice.”

The collection includes eau de parfum sprays in three sizes: 1 oz. ($39.50), 1.7 oz. ($55) and 3.3 oz. ($65) — as well as a 6.8-oz. body lotion ($28). Luscious Pink will be sold in 2,000 U.S, department stores, and will also be available in Japan.

I’m a big fan of M, Mariah’s first fragrance – so I’m anxious to get a whiff of her sophmore scent.
