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

Laura Mercier Master Class: Makeup Bag Must-Haves in Your 30s


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

Posted on by daneen in Event | Leave a comment

tyra antm Tyra Looking For Some Shorties For Americas Next Top Model, Cycle 13The number 13 may be considered unlucky to some…but for aspiring short models, it may just be a blessing.

For the first time in America’s Next Top Model history, Tyra Banks announces that girls must be 5’7″ and under to qualify for cycle 13 of the hit reality show.

Typically, ANTM requires that contestants meet a minimum height requirement of 5’7” – matching the industry standard. But next time around, Tyra is searching for shorties, ages 18 to 27, of diverse backgrounds, shapes and sizes.

“There have been top supermodels in the past that weren’t as tall as the industry demands, like fashion icon Kate Moss,” said Tyra. “So we are changing up Top Model for cycle 13 and making it a year for the shorter model!”

MAC and Hello Kitty In The Big City

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities, Event, Fashion | Leave a comment

hello+kitty+collection MAC and Hello Kitty In The Big City

As you’ve probably heard, MAC Cosmetics has teamed up with the international pop culture phenomenon Hello Kitty, to create a color story that takes its cue from both the fantastical world of Hello Kitty and the glamorous fashion scene.

Somewhere between a coy girl and sexy siren, MAC Hello Kitty represents the desire in all of us to be both innocent and mischievous. More Angelina Jolie than Shirley Temple, the feisty new color collection takes its inspiration from the complex, yet elegantly feminine sensibility.

In celebration of the partnership, MAC has taken it to the stylish next level and tapped into its fashion reservoir of friends and assembled a team of 30 internationally renowned designers, to create one-of-a-kind pieces that are inspired by the Hello Kitty collection.

 MAC and Hello Kitty In The Big CityMAC asked designers to work within the color palette of the Hello Kitty collection of black, grey, white and pink and posed the question, “What would MAC Hello Kitty wear if she were a fashionista?” Designers were given creative freedom to create pieces in their own aesthetic and on February 5th in New York, MAC unveiled the exclusive designs to the world with a global Hello Kitty cocktail party and fashion exhibit showcasing the ensembles.

It was MAC Hello Kitty Commotion! My bestie, Amber, was in attendance. Click here to get the inside scoop (and see a pic of her encounter with a certain celeb from MTV’s The City).

The MAC Hello Kitty fashion designer team includes the very talented; Blugirl, Catherine Malandrino, Charlotte Ronson, Dress33, Elie Saab, Emanuel Ungaro, General Idea – Bum Suk Choi, Giles, Hervé Léger by Max Azria, Kai Kühne, Kate Sylvester, Katy England, Manish Arora, Marchesa, Miro, Opening Ceremony, Qiu Hao, Rosa Cha, Ruffian, Sang Beg Ha, Shu-Chi Huang, Sinha Stanic, Tadashi Shoji, The Blonds, threeasFOUR, Vicente Villarin, Yigal Azrouel, Zac Posen, and Zimmermann.

 MAC and Hello Kitty In The Big City

The MAC Hello Kitty designs will be auctioned off on eBay, with all proceeds benefiting The Museum at The Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in New York. On Monday February 9, 2009 at 10:00pm EST, the MAC Hello Kitty charity auction will go live on eBay. To bid on these exclusive designer creations, please visit ebay.com/machellokitty. Bidding will be open internationally and will remain live for ten days. Payment will be accepted through major credit cards only, via PayPal. The auction will close on February 19, 2009 at the same time it began.

The MAC Hello Kitty color and accessory collection will launch on February 12, 2009.

Superbowl Spa Day at Bliss

Posted on by daneen in Event, Nails | Leave a comment

superbown+nail+decals Superbowl Spa Day at Bliss
On Sunday, the Arizona Cardinals and Pittsburgh Steelers will meet in Tampa Bay for Superbowl XLIII.

If you’re a fan of either team, you could wear your team pride on your fingernails – with fun nail decals like these. Or you could take a page from this uber-fan’s playbook – and take the “tramp stamp” to a whole nuther level.

classy+steelers+fan Superbowl Spa Day at Bliss
Classy.

If you’re bitter – like me – because your team won’t play on Sunday (my Philadelphia Eagles choked in the NFC Championship Game*) or don’t give a kitty about football at all, Bliss has some great alternative activities planned

*Though I’m upset that my Eagles won’t represent in Sunday’s game, I still have much love for: Donovan McNabb, Brian Westbrook and Brian Dawkins. I ain’t mad at ya, boys!
