Because Shaving is the Pits: DERMAdoctor Gorilla Warfare Antiperspirant Giveaway!


My hair grows like a weed. Unfortunately, the hair of which I speak is not on my head. My legs and underarms give my razor a workout. If I shave in the morning, by afternoon, I've got stubble. And forget about skipping days...unless I want to look like Sasquatch. Getting rid of the hair is not only expensive (I CONTINUE READING

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: BlowPro Perfect Shower Cap


The shower and my chemically-straightened hair are frenemies. Every seventh day when I wash my hair, they get along great in a shampoo Shangri-la. But the rest of the week, I employ a shower cap to keep the steam from undoing the silky straightness. I have been wearing shower caps since I was a child, and I’ve tried them CONTINUE READING

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

ysl+All+For+Eyes+set Dont Forget About The Nordstrom Anniversary Beauty Exclusives Event
The Nordstrom Anniversary Beauty Exclusives Event doesn’t officially kick off until July 17th, but you can get a head start on your shopping now. Beat the crowds and pre-order now so you won’t miss out on the limited-edition sets and beauty bargains available only at Nordstrom during this decades-old annual ritual.

I recently got my hands on a sneak preview of Yves Saint Laurent ‘All Fore Eyes’ Set, one of this year’s exclusive offerings.

All For Eyes includes a full-size Touché Éclat Radiant Touch No. 1 Luminous Radiance, a travel-size Instant Eye Makeup Remover, and a full-size Volume Effet Faux Cils Luxurious Mascara No. 1 in Black – which is responsible for the impossibly lush lashes I’ve been sporting as of late (True Blood-sucker Jessica, eat your heart out!)
