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

Dermadoctor Physical Chemistry


One of my all-time favorite products is Dermadoctor KP Duty, a dual action body exfoliator that combines the benefits of a chemical peel and microdermabrasion. It was developed to treat chicken skin - those little red bumps that many people get on their upper arms. But, for years, I've been using it to exfoliate my legs pre-shave.  There's really no body exfoliator CONTINUE READING

Mother’s Day Gift Guide: Tory Burch Key Fobs

Posted on by daneen in Discounts, Fashion, Featured, Handbags, Sale | Leave a comment

mothers day Mothers Day Gift Guide: Tory Burch Key Fobs

For a long time, Mother’s Day was just another Hallmark holiday to me. Time to buy the obligatory bouquet and card, right? That is until I had my son, Westley. Only then did I understand what a difficult (and rewarding) job motherhood truly is. And now that Westley is 3.5-years-old and I’m 2 months shy of welcoming his little sister into the world, Mother’s Day holds even more meaning for me.

So do me a favor. This Mother’s Day, I want you to spoil the mothers in your life. It’s okay if your wallet is a little light. We moms appreciate a home-cooked meal, a thoughtful email/text message and – yes – the obligatory bouquet or card. But in case you’re feeling generous this year, I’ll be sharing some of my favorite Mother’s Day gift suggestions over the next 10 days or so.

Johnny Weir: Fashion Gold at the Sochi Olympics

Personally, I’ve found the Sochi Olympics to be underwhelming, so far. But you know what keeps me tuning in – at least on the figure skating days, anyway? Johnny Weir.

Honestly, the two-time Olympic skating champ turned commentator could be speaking Russian as he critiques the performances for NBC Sports Network. All anyone really wants to know is where they can buy his fierce fashions and accessories.

Susana Monaco Flutter Tube Dress

Posted on by daneen in Discounts, Fashion, Featured, Holy Grail, Sale | Leave a comment

susana monaco flutter tube dress 1 Susana Monaco Flutter Tube Dress

I just had to share how much I adore this Susana Monaco Flutter Tube Dress I just bought from Shopbop.com.  I’m usually very hesitant to buy clothing online because I’m short and curvy and I can’t be assured that something will look right until I try it on. And even when I do buy clothes off the Internet, they’re almost always petite clothes because the proportions on regular clothes make me look like I got dressed in front of a funhouse mirror. But I decided to take a chance on this dress because a) I don’t have any cute going out dresses in my closet, b) this dress is so cute it’s ridiculous and c) it’s on sale for 50% off.

Well, I’m glad I decided to live dangerously because the dress fits amazing and is the most flattering thing I’ve bought in a long time. The double-jersey knit hugs without being restrictive. Plus since it’s not thin, you don’t have to worry about it showing any lumps and bumps. The peplum on top of the skirt plays hide-and-seek with the areas I’m most self conscious about, and makes this body-con dress more wearable for those of us without model bodies. And the color just screams summer, right?

This dress is so hot, I’m building an entire girls’ night around it.

If you’re as enamored with this dress as I am, act quick…it’s going fast. But be sure to check out Susana Monaco’s other dresses Shopbop.com – she’s no one hit wonder.

PS – Gilt actually has a sale of Susana Monaco going on today. So check that out for more options.

 

Bust a Move On Over to Saturday.com

saturday is final1 Bust a Move On Over to Saturday.com

Earlier this month, Kate Spade (aka creator of cuteness and the reason why I can’t seem to keep money in my wallet), launched a brand new line called Kate Spade Saturday.

Kate Spade Saturday is a new global lifestyle brand created to channel the spirit of Saturday seven days a week. This younger, more accessible sister to kate spade new york shares the same DNA: it’s colorful, optimistic and bold, but it expresses these values in a more casual way. Saturday offers simple shapes and go-anywhere silhouettes. Functionality and utility are key. The collection is crafted with honest materials like crisp cotton, canvas and natural vachetta, brightened with bold colors and strong prints. The line includes apparel, handbags, accessories and items for the home.

After browsing around Saturday.com, I have to say that it’s everything I hoped it would be. The line is polished but fun – retaining Kate Spade’s cheekiness – but at a more affordable price point. Here are just a few of the fashionista-friendly items I’m eyeing up:
