Tatcha, I'm So Glad I Gotcha


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

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 Featured | Leave a comment

mac+love+lace MAC Love LaceEvery couturier has forever had a fascination with the mysterious and alluring qualities of Lace.

From Evita to Marlene Dietrich to some of the best-dressed of our red-carpet modern screen stars, it’s a long love affair.

Beauty Bloggerati Spotlight: Holiday Beauty Gift Guide

Beauty+Bloggerati+Spotlight Beauty Bloggerati Spotlight: Holiday Beauty Gift Guide
‘Tis the season of giving…so if you haven’t done so already, I highly suggest you check out Spoiled Pretty’s Holiday Beauty Gift Guide.

beauty+stocking+stuffers Beauty Bloggerati Spotlight: Holiday Beauty Gift GuideTo supplement my gift picks, I recently asked my fellow Daily Makeover Beauty Bloggerati to weigh in on their favorite stocking stuffers under $15, and this is what they had to say:

I love the L’Oreal Clean Artiste Makeup Remover Pen ($11). It cleans up all liquid liner mishaps in a flash and doesn’t irritate my eye area. Best of all, the fact that it’s called Clean Artiste, as opposed to simply Clean Artist, is so Hollywood Montrose from Mannequin. -Beauty Blogging Junkie

I love anything from E.L.F. (Eyes Lips Face) for stocking stuffers, because they have entire kits of makeup (for example, a standard/waterproof mascara, eye liner, and eye brightening pencil) for $3. Their individual products are only $1 each, so you could literally fill a stocking with products, without having to go over $10. Is there anything better than that? -Makeover Momma

I love the mini Sephora palettes. They offer such incredible value – this one has 8 eyeshadows, four glosses and a blush for $15! -The Jet Set Girls

I love to give essential beauty items to my step-daughter to stock her up. Yes to Carrots Lip Butter ($3.69), Gillette Venus razor and refill cartridges ($10.99-15), Neutrogena Body Oil ($13) and Pantene Pro-V 5 Minute Strengthening Mask ($4.50) are a few of my favorite stocking stuffers. -A Mom in Red High Heels

Everyone in my family loves the single note essential oils from Aveda ($13) especially the eucalyptus. There are so many ways to use them; but we keep them by the bedside and dab a few drops between our hands and inhale before bedtime. It’s part of our relaxation ritual. -The Jet Set Girls

Nude Lips is an adorable stocking stuffer for all lips – this organic cupuacu and Tahitian vanilla monoi lip balm melts at body temperature ($14) for the prettiest gloss and most kissable lips. -Talking Makeup

What are some of your go-to beauty stocking stuffers?

Starbucks Caramel Brulee Latte

starbucks+caramel+brulee+latte Starbucks Caramel Brulee LatteDear fellow Starbucks addicts,

Just thought you’d like to know that our favorite coffee joint just added a new caffeine concoction to their holiday drink lineup: the Caramel Brulee Latte.

They combined Starbucks espresso and steamed milk with a rich caramel sauce and topped it with whipped cream and shimmery pieces of caramel topping.

xoxo,

Update: I just tried it and it is delish!
