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
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

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
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
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
While most of you are aware that New York Fashion Week kicks off today, you might not know that February 1st is also National Wear Red Day. To commemorate the occasion, The Heart Truth is hosting the Red Dress Collection runway show, which will feature celebrity women (including Heidi Klum, Jenna Fischer, and Leighton Meester) donning one-of-a-kind red dresses by America’s top designers for women’s heart health. Participating designers include Badgley Mischka, Carmen Marc Valvo, Carolina Herrera, Catherine Malandrino, L.A.M.B., Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Monique Lhuillier, Narciso Rodriguez, and Zac Posen.
Beauty is also on board, as Red Dress sponsor Bobbi Brown has created a Limited-Edition Lip Palette ($40) – which includes a universally flattering range of medium to deep hues: Mauve Lip Shimmer, Kir Lip Shimmer, Cranberry Lip Sheer and Slopes Lip Color-and a mini Lip Brush.
“I am thrilled to be a part of the Heart Truth Show for a third year in a row. It’s important to educate and empower women with the knowledge they need to make smart lifestyle choices and Heart Truth does a great job of getting the word out,” says Bobbi.
The most amazing thing has happened! I have been invited to cover New York Fashion Week, as a beauty correspondent! Can you believe it? This time last year, I didn’t really know what a blog was; now I have my own, and I’m going to Fashion Week. I’m ecstatic!
I have been invited backstage – by MAC Cosmetics – to interview the MAC Makeup Artists and MAC Product Development Executives. I will be behind the scenes at Alexandre Herchcovitch, Tadashi Shoji, Carmen Marc Valvo, and Donna Karan. Additionally, I will be having cocktails and dinner at Koi with other members of the Total Beauty family; and the next night, I will attend a dinner at Indochine – organized by MAC – for a select group of beauty bloggers.
I will be chronicling my Fashion Week experience for Spoiled Pretty – so stay tuned for breaking news, tips, trends, interviews, and ridiculously fabulous giveaways!
Details continue to unfold – so I may have more great news to share before I jet off (actually, I’ll be riding Amtrak) to NYC on Friday.
The only thing that could make this better is if, while I’m in NYC, someone mistakes me for Kerry Washington. Fat chance, I know – but a girl can dream.
