Get Catty With Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses


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

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.

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

SJP+Marie+Claire+Cover Can’t Get Enough Sex? Pick Up Marie Claire
The movie’s only been out for a week, and you’ve seen it multiple times. The film made you nostalgic, so you broke out your SATC box set and have taking a trip down memory lane with Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda. You downloaded the soundtrack and memorized all of the words to Fergie’s “Labels Or Love.” But you’re still hungry from more Sex. How do you satiate your appetite? Marie Claire has you covered, literally.

The magazine dabbled in some four-play for its July 2008 cover. At the newsstands, Sarah Jessica Parker will be the face you see. Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis, and Cynthia Nixon will be randomly sent to the mailboxes of Marie Claire subscribers.

"What Not To Wear" Takes Show On The Road

Posted on by daneen in Featured | Leave a comment

what+not+to+wear "What Not To Wear" Takes Show On The Road
You may find this hard to believe, but a few years ago, Mama Spoiled Pretty nominated me for What Not To Wear. Being publicly humiliated on national TV would likely push the average woman to commit matricide. But my mom knows that I’m not your typical gal. She understood that I would be more than willing to embarrass myself in exchange for an all-expense paid trip to NYC, a fashion consultation with Stacey London and Clinton Kelly, $5,000 worth of clothes and accessories, and a complete hair and make-up transformation courtesy of Nick Arrojo and Carmindy.

But alas, it wasn’t meant to be. I had been one of the finalists, my mom later revealed…but I was beat out by another local woman who was even more tore-up looking than me. You should have seen me then. Though, it’s probably a good thing that you didn’t…you might have turned to stone, or be a pillar of salt right now.

Anyway, What Not to Wear is coming back to Philadelphia – and they’re also making stops in Chicago, New York City, New Orleans, and St. Louis areas. Do you know someone who is a walking fashion/beauty disaster? Secretly nominate them to appear on the show. Click here to apply online or email the show directly at: WhatNotToWear@bbcnyproduction.com.

*You MUST include her name AND the nearest major city (i.e. Philadelphia, New Orleans, etc.) in the subject line.

*In the email, include her name, age, size, height, occupation, marital status, children if any, location. Describe her personality, her style, and why you feel that she is a fashion disaster.

*Include any interesting anecdotes, stories or facts about your nominee.

*Include any information about upcoming events, parties, promotions, or celebrations that would require her to look her best.

*Include 2 pictures that illustrate her pitiful fashion sense.

*Be sure to include all pertinent contact information, including phone numbers, emails, etc.

Hosting any Sex And The City festivities this weekend? Serving cosmos? Oh, no! Cosmopolitans are so last season. There’s a new pink drink in town.
