Because Shaving is the Pits: DERMAdoctor Gorilla Warfare Antiperspirant Giveaway!


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

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: BlowPro Perfect Shower Cap


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

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

Peep My Polish: Revlon Top Speed Nail Enamel in Superstitious


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

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

Recessional2 About Time: Coming to Theaters on November 8

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 been paying off for the past 10 years…and I still have a ways to go. Every month, it pains me to pay off an education that I’m not even using.

I’ve often fantasized about how awesome it would be if I had discovered my talents for marketing and communications a few years earlier, so that I could have bypassed law school and saved myself a lot of money. And I’ve sometimes wished that I could go back and make some different decisions – knowing what I know now.

The only snafu with this fantasy is that I met Graham – aka Mr. Spoiled Pretty –  on the first day of law school. We became best friends our first year, started dating the second year and we’ve been together ever since (12 years and going strong). So while I sometimes regret going to law school and incurring all of that student loan debt, the truth is that the amazing life I’ve built with Graham is invaluable and I wouldn’t want to change a thing about it.

New From Urban Decay: Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder for Face and Body

Posted on by daneen in Featured, Highlighter, Powder | Leave a comment

Urban Decay Naked Illuminated Powder Face Body New From Urban Decay: Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder for Face and Body There’s a new member of the Urban Decay Naked family: Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder for Face and Body.

This smooth, silky powder contains a sophisticated, microfine shimmer and light-reflecting particles that give skin a luminous, radiant look. You really have to see it to appreciate how insanely beautiful it is! This lightweight, shimmering powder is baked on a terra cotta disc for 24 hours and then hand-finished, just like our popular Baked Bronzer. Baking the formula gives Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder a high level of just-perfect shimmer (without the metallic look of cheaper formulas). It also provides the color payoff of a loose powder, with the convenience of a pressed powder.

The perfect way to get (or give) Naked, this shimmering powder comes in a gorgeous rose-gold box and makes the perfect gift for any Naked fan. Includes a generous mirror and a brush (housed in a separate compartment underneath the powder).

Tory Burch Launches Fragrance and Beauty Collection

Tory Burch Fragrance and Beauty Collection Tory Burch Launches Fragrance and Beauty CollectionLast week, Tory Burch added a new fragrance and beauty collection to her stylish empire.

Tory describes her eponymous fragrance as “a balance of femininity and tomboy, citrus and floral, grounded and graceful.” Floral peony and tuberose blend with crisp citrus notes of grapefruit and neroli — anchored by earthy vetiver.

Back in 2009, I interviewed my fellow Philadelphian and she named Vetiver by Guerlain as her signature scent. So I’m not surprised that vetiver (which her dad, Buddy, also wore) became the signature note for her first fragrance. CONTINUE READING
