Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Cover April Issue of Vogue


Welp, folks, it looks like Kanye finally wore Anna Wintour down and got his baby mama a coveted Vogue cover. So the rumors were true. There was buzz a few months back that Kim would cover the fashion bible, but then everyone assumed it would be a foreign Vogue - given Anna's alleged aversion to all things Kardashian. I CONTINUE READING

Find Your New Fragrance With Scentmap

scentmap Find Your New Fragrance With Scentmap
Think it’s impossible to find a new fragrance? Never dream of buying perfume as a gift? Scentmap.com is about to change your tune, Negative Nelly.

Based on your current fragrance, Scentmap will recommend new perfumes with similar notes and personality. A ‘remote control’ on the sidebar allows users to fine-tune selection criteria by choosing simple characteristics (i.e. warm or fresh, extroverted or intimate, classic or new, rare or star).

prada+iris Find Your New Fragrance With ScentmapThe site boasts a library of fragrances from 59 brands, though I wouldn’t go so far as to compare it to Google…the press page likens the site to “the Google of Perfumes.” For example, Scentmap doesn’t have two of my favorites on file, Philosophy Amazing Grace and Hanae Mori Butterfly.

But if I click on Prada Infusion d’Iris (one of the top five fragrances on the market right now…and my current obsession), Scentmap will suggest Calvin Klein Obsession Night, Fendi Palazzo, YSL Cinema, Guerlain L’Heure Bleue and Stella McCartney Sheer Stella.

And coming soon to Scentmap.com: a forum where you can converse with other fragrance fans, as well as a masculine component so that you can shop for your man.

Paris Hilton Fairy Dust Giveaway!

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities, Contest, Fragrance, Giveaway, Perfume | 10 Comments

paris+hilton+fairy+dust Paris Hilton Fairy Dust Giveaway!
This month, Paris Hilton adds another perfume to her fragrance resume. Fairy Dust, her collaboration with Parlux Fragrances, is described as “an essence of enchantment, a sensual, seductive floral, which is bright, effervescent and inviting.”

 Paris Hilton Fairy Dust Giveaway!“The scent is magical,” says Paris. “It’s delicate in the morning, sensual during the day and seductive in the evening. When I wear Fairy Dust, I feel as whimsical and free as a dazzling fairy.”

At first twinkling, Fairy Dust by Paris Hilton is sprinkled with floral notes of Pink Peony and Orange Blossom. These bright, fresh essences shine over the radiant effervescence of sparkling Prosecco Accord, becoming a warm, inviting toast to the powers of enchantment. At the Heart, a bouquet of spring Gardenia and Water Lily presents itself and Peach Nectar adds warmth to this cool entic-ing expression of playful femininity. Lingering on the skin is an alluring blend of Vanilla Créme and Cashmere Musk wrapped around a rich and woody Sueded Patchouli. The scent of the forest where fairies linger, deep, smooth and tantalizing.

The Fairy Dust by Paris Hilton Fragrance Collection consists of a 3.4 oz. Eau de Parfum Spray ($55.00), 1.7 oz. Eau de Parfum Spray ($45.00) and a 6.7 oz. Body Lotion ($28.00).

Thanks to Parlux, four readers will win a 3.4 oz Eau de Parfum Spray!

Danielle Fishel Dishes On Her Shampoo Commercial Hair: Grape Children’s Conditioner?

Posted on by daneen in Conditioner, Fragrance, Hair, Interview, Perfume | 6 Comments

danielle+fishel Danielle Fishel Dishes On Her Shampoo Commercial Hair: Grape Children’s Conditioner?
I am obsessed with The Dish.

thedish nav 260 Danielle Fishel Dishes On Her Shampoo Commercial Hair: Grape Children’s Conditioner?The Style Network’s new weekly wrap-up of red carpet trends, celebrity gossip and reality TV ridiculousness has quickly become one of my guilty pleasures. Since its August debut, I haven’t missed an episode. And I don’t have TiVo or DVR or any of that new-fangled technology, which attests to the addictive nature of The Dish.

Recently, I had the opportunity to interview the show’s saucy host, Danielle Fishel. Danielle is best known for her role as Topanga on Boy Meets World. But after watching one eppy of The Dish, you’ll be so impressed by this snarkstress’ sass and comic timing, the farthest thing from your mind will be Topanga’s saccharinely sweet romance with one Cory Matthews.

SP: If I opened up your handbag right now, what beauty products would I find inside?
DF: 42 types of lip balm! My favorite is Victoria’s Secret called “Balmy Night” because its really moisturizing. I also love Bobbi Brown for some color and MAC Plushglass. I dont need the plumping effect per se, but I love the tingling sensation and it doesnt ever leave that white film in the corners of your mouth! YUCK!

SP: What is your signature scent?
DF: I can’t really say that I have a signature scent because I LOVE perfume and have a large glass tray with over 30 kinds of perfume, ranging from clean to sweet to spicy. Sometimes I wear a different one every day of the week and other times, I stick with one for days on end. Some regular favorites are the original Bvlgari Omnia, Tiffany, and Juicy Couture.

SP: You’ve grown up on television, so surely you must have picked up afew makeup tricks/secrets. Care to share?
DF: No. Just kidding…I think my favorite trick is to do your eye makeup first, especially when doing a smoky eye, so that any loose powder that falls on your cheeks can be washed off without ruining the work you’ve done with your foundation!

SP: Danielle, you have shampoo commercial hair…I need to know what hair products you use.
loreal+grape+conditioner Danielle Fishel Dishes On Her Shampoo Commercial Hair: Grape Children’s Conditioner?DF: First of all, THANK YOU, and secondly, I wish there were some great secret I could tell you! I have never stuck with one product for very long although if you must know my longest lasting favorite it was whatever shampoo was on sale combined with Suave Go-Go Grape Children’s Conditioner!!! It has a detangler in it and smells delicious! L’Oreal Kids also makes a grape conditioner with a detangler but it doesn’t have a cool name like Go-Go Grape. icon smile Danielle Fishel Dishes On Her Shampoo Commercial Hair: Grape Children’s Conditioner? Outside of that, I do not use any products. I hate hairspray and serums and all of that. It just makes my hair feel heavy and weighed-down. I wash my hair and blow dry it with a metal round brush (I only wash and dry my hair once every 4-5 days which is why it is still healthy, but I’m lucky that I dont get greasy hair!) and then I go. I usually don’t even brush it again until it’s time to wash it.

Thanks, Danielle! See you Saturday night.

Now back to your regularly scheduled programming…

Amazing Grace is Simply Irresistible

Posted on by daneen in Fragrance | 1 Comment

amazing+grace Amazing Grace is Simply IrresistibleLast night, my sister and I took a cab to the Walish Gooshe Spring/Summer 2009 fashion show (more on that later). And the driver was so intoxicated by our choice of fragrance, Philosophy Amazing Grace Perfumed Body Spritz, that he made me repeat the name at least six or seven times, so that he wouldn’t forget. He told me that his sister would love the scent and wanted to know where he could purchase it. What a thoughtful brother, right? I told him Sephora, which he repeated over and over so that he wouldn’t forget that either.

It’s no wonder Amazing Grace Perfumed Body Spritz was awarded the gold medal in the 2008 Summer Beauty Olympics. The scent is simply irresistible.

Take it away, Robert and fierce fembots…
