Get Catty With Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses


I've been searching for some cat eye sunnies for forever. On a whim, I bought these Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses from Shopbop - hoping that they wouldn't look too cartoonish. Even though I was afraid they'd be too large, I'm digging the oversized frames. They make a statement without overwhelming my face. And the cat eye shape is subtle, so it's not CONTINUE READING

Peep My Polish: Revlon Top Speed Nail Enamel in Superstitious


Now that I have two kids - and the youngest being 6 weeks old - I needed to get better acquainted with quick-dry nail polish options. I hardly have time to do anything, let alone a DIY - so I needed to find some lacquers that fit my new lifestyle. Yesterday, while going my grocery shopping, I picked up Revlon CONTINUE READING

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


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.

Fall Beauty Forecast Class!

Posted on by daneen in Event, Philadelphia | Leave a comment
back+to+school Fall Beauty Forecast Class!

It’s time to go back to school!

As a beauty expert, I’ve been enlisted by Skillshare to teach a class on – you guessed it – beauty!

The class, Fall Beauty Forecast, is now listed on the Skillshare website – but it is currently in ‘Pilot’ mode. This means that, before I set a date/time/location, I’m waiting to gauge interest in the course.

So if you’re in the Philadelphia area and interested in attending, visit the page and click the eye icon. This lets me know that you want to learn – and will alert you once I’ve set the date.

Here’s the class description:

Want a fresh look for fall? Class is in session for those who, while still sporting shorts and flip flops, want to get a jump start on the upcoming season.

It might seem far away now, but Autumn is just around the corner – prime time to start stocking up on the season’s essential beauty gear. In Fall Beauty Forecast, beauty expert Daneen Baird will share the fiercest fall beauty trends and introduce you to new must-haves – from cosmetics, skin care, hair care, bath and body, fragrance and tools.

Test drive these fabulous fall products before the temperature drops. They’re so hot, these products are sure to raise the mercury a few degrees.

If your makeup bag is so last season, secure your spot at the head of this class.

Note: The Fall Beauty Forecast class will culminate with a beauty basket raffle!

Based on the response to this first class, I might make teaching a regular thing. So stay tuned for more announcements. That is all for now. Class is dismissed.
