This Is Not One Of My Favorite Things


Long before Oprah was making studio audiences squeal over Josh Groban CD’s and $4,000 refrigerators with TV’s on the door, my girl Fraulein Maria had a song about her favorite things.

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things


I’m pretty sure ColorOn EyeEnvy – Tinsel Kit wasn’t quite what the perky postulant had in mind.

I don’t know why anyone would actually spend $17 on this, but let’s say you do…when the dog bites and the bee stings and you’re feeling sad, thank your lucky stars that you didn’t pay full-price ($25) for this hot mess…and then you won’t feel so bad.

Cosmetic Confections: NARS Is Good Enough To Eat


How cute are these NARS-inspired cupcakes? BellaSugar tipped me off to these couture confections by Dots Treats in North Miami Beach, Florida. I’m a chocaholic with a serious sweet tooth – but oddly enough, this photo has me craving NARS Duo Eyeshadow in Rated R.

A few months ago, my sister reluctantly went shopping with me and I rewarded/bribed her with this duet of chartreuse and cobolt shimmer shadows. It looks so gorgeous on, it’s sick.

Now, looking at this pic, I’m green with envy. Perhaps my sister will read this post and return the favor. Lauren, are you listening? Help a sista out!

Award Winning FOTD


Last night, I attended the PRSA/Philadelphia Pepperpot Awards – a celebration of outstanding performance in public relations by practitioners in agencies, industry, government, and non-profit organizations. The American Cancer Society’s Marketing Department (of which I am a member) was nominated for our efforts to pass Clean Indoor Air (smoke-free) legislation in Pennsylvania.

The Pepperpot Award has grown into one of the most coveted awards in the field of public relations, so I pulled out the big guns and went all out with my makeup. It’s a good thing I did, because my team ended up winning first place in the Public Affairs category! Yay us!

And the icing on the cake? Charm City Cakes, the bakery featured in the Food Network series, Ace of Cakes, created a magnificent confection that looked just like an actual pepperpot!

Here are the products I used to create my award-winning look:
