Because my hair is over-processed, dry and damaged, I only wash it about once a week. Which means that when I “do” it, I better do it right – or else my hair will look jacked for the next seven days. Forget a bad hair day; it’s more like a bad hair week for me. So when I’m offered CONTINUE READING
This weekend, grab your girlfriends and go see The Best Man Holiday – which hits theaters today.
On Tuesday, I attended a screening with Mama Spoiled Pretty and her BFF, Estelle – and we had so much fun. We laughed hard and cried harder (this rom-com is also a tearjerker - so bring some tissues). In fact, I got so CONTINUE READING

As you probably know, I am a marketing professional by day, a beauty blogger by night and a mom/wife 24/7. But what you may not know is that, after graduating from college, I attended law school. Ultimately, I chose a different path - which makes me much happier. What doesn't make me happy, however, are the school loans I've CONTINUE READING

Last Friday, I was scheduled to be backstage at Sean John*. I was super excited to be attending the closing show of New York Fashion Week.
I fantasized that Diddy and I would meet, he’d be captivated by my charm, and then whisk me away to the star-studded soiree.
It would play out like that R. Kelly/Jay Z collabo:
After the show it’s the after party and After the party is the hotel lobby and After the Belve then it’s probably Cris…
But that didn’t happen. In fact, the closest I got to the Sean John show was a pizzeria on the corner of 22nd Street & 6th Ave. I was grabbing a bite there when I got a call from MAC telling me that there were no female models in the show, and therefore no need for MAC makeup. I was bummed, but also exhausted from my travels; so I caught an early train back to Philly.
So sorry, beauties. I know you were anxious for me to dish the Diddy dirt. C’est la vie.
If you absolutely need a Puffy fix, Glamour.com has an article entitled “Diddy knows pretty,” in which the hip-hop mogul/designer shares his observations on what makes a woman irresistible. Here’s an excerpt:
Why he named his perfume Unforgivable Woman: “It’s about being unapologetic. It’s about having swagger. Confidence is such a sexy, sexy quality.”
Makeup trend he’s so over: “Red lipstick just isn’t working for me. It might be good for an awards show, but it’s not hot to kiss. I love natural lip color—that’s always a good look!”
Biggest beauty obsession: “Sugar Bath Cubes by Fresh. I take a bath every night. I love the way they make my skin feel. I have very soft skin—go ahead, touch it!”
