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 CONTINUE READING

So I needed to buy 12 gifts to show my appreciation, without breaking the bank. $10 each seemed doable, except CONTINUE READING
As a beauty expert, I’m embarrassed by how late I am to the BB Cream party. In the past year, so many friends and colleagues have asked me about BB Creams—what’s the buzz, which brands are the best, etc. —and they would look at me funny when I admitted to not having tried BB Creams yet.

The Eco-Friendly Handbag Giveaway was inspired by my BFF Jill, who is a vegan and all-around friend of the earth. And when buying food, clothing, accessories and cosmetics, she is very careful that her purchases are in line with her beliefs.

So when I decided to do the In The Bag Summer Beauty Giveaway Week, I knew I had to throw some eco-friendly fabulousness in there, for good karmic measure.
