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

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
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
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is in full swing. July 18th through August 3rd, shoppers nationwide will participate in what has been an annual ritual since the 1960’s. Vacation days are planned around it, lines form in anticipation of it – and it’s not only for the pre-season savings on fall fashion and accessories.

Happy Friday, all! Today couldn’t have come sooner – I am in serious need of some R&R. I don’t know about you, but it’s felt like a lifetime has lapsed since Monday. And I know I’m not the only one..those of you who entered the Victoria’s Secret PINK Giveaway are probably especially anxious.
Suspense isn’t my forte (I’m more adept and comedy and sarcasm), so I’ll just get on with it.
Monday’s are rough. I know. Half of you are wishing it was still Sunday, because you didn’t accomplish half the things you’d planned on this past weekend. The other half has accepted that it’s a new week, but you’re mentally counting down the days til your next attempt at some R&R.
Kinda off topic, but you know who’s probably having a particularly manic Monday? Miss USA. For the second year in a row, Miss USA tripped during the evening gown competition. In 2007, Rachel Smith took a little tumble and landed on her tailbone. This year, Crystle Stewart followed in her predecessor’s awkward footsteps. Girlfriend’s hair was looking on-point, though.
So what I guess I’m getting at is that today may be difficult for you…but at least the universe isn’t making fun of your fine motor skills. And on that note, I’ll announce the winner of the Amazing Grace giveaway.
Cynthia Anne Peyson is the winner!!! She will receive an Amazing Grace gift set, which includes Perfumed Buffing Wash, Perfumed Shave Gel, and Perfumed Body Spritz.
Thanks to Philosophy for making this giveaway possible! Check back later today for the next contest announcement.
