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
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
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

For her Fall 2008 collection, Jenni Kayne was inspired by the 90’s grunge scene and styles from the 30’s and 40’s. For the hair, she wanted the models to look “real,” so hairstylist Oscar Blandi created sophisticated, bed-head hairstyles to compliment the designs.
Creating these “very organic and very earthy” dos is a little more involved that one might think – just as a nude makeup look requires more than taupe shadow and a swipe of lip balm. I mean, does anyone really wake up looking this chic?
Though not used at Jenni Kaye’s presentation, worth a mention is Oscar Blandi’s Olio di Jasmine Shine Spray, a convenient new version of Oscar’s Jasmine Oil Serum. This spray moisturizes and controls frizz, and makes locks lustrous. I especially appreciate the light formula, which doesn’t build-up or weight down my fine hair.
Remember Salon Selectives? The popular brand of the ‘80s and ‘90s that made women feel like they just stepped out of a salon? Well, Salon Selectives is hoping to capitalize on nostalgia and get back into the hair grooming game.
“The re-introduction of Salon Selectives represents a great opportunity for our company,” said Dr. Eugene Zeffren, CEO of SSB, the company that distributes and markets Salon Selectives. “Our research shows that the brand still has over 80 percent awareness among our target consumers. These women don’t just remember the Salon Selectives name, they retain a host of other positive associations, including the apple scent and the customized hair care message – they can even sing the jingle.”
Starting in March 2008, Salon Selectives will be returning to the shelves with updated packaging and new formulas – but will retain trademarks such as pink bottles, apple fragrance, and customization.
There are 18 items in the line, with three shampoos, five conditioners and 10 styling and treatment products – ten of which are now available for purchase on drugstore.com. And according to Women’s Wear Daily, the marketing plan includes TV and print ads that will run startng beginning in April.
I so hope they resurrect the old jingle. Speaking of which, check out this old-school Salon Selectives commercial I dug up on YouTube. Perhaps this will jog your memory…
So without having heard anything about Ojon’s new Rare Harvest Tunu Elastik Hair Tamer, I picked it up on a whim during a recent trip to Sephora. Ojon has yet to disappoint me, so I took a chance on this $25 leave-in hair relaxer/de-frizzing balm.
Here’s what the package promised: * imparts a soft, flexible smoothness to all hair types * naturally seals the cuticle to stay sleek * eliminates frizz caused by humidity * provides a moisture barrier * formulated without alcohol and silicone * perfect for all hair types – straight, curly, permed, or relaxed
Does it deliver? You betcha! I took the bottle to Erik, my hairstylist, when I went to the salon yesterday evening. We were both surprised by how smooth and glossy my hair was after blowdrying – and its gel/mousse hybrid texture doesn’t weigh my fine hair down. Best of all, it’s snowing/sleeting/freezing raining here in Philly – but you wouldn’t know it to look at my hair. Even one of my co-workers remarked this morning. My hair has been looking seriously jacked up for weeks…so I was super excited to get a compliment – you don’t even know. I was doing the happy dance. And I have Ojon (and Erik) to thank.
Bottom line: Go get this stuff right now. It’s $23.50 on QVC, but if you buy it at Sephora and you don’t like it for whatever reason, returning it is a breeze. But chances are you won’t return it, cuz I know you’re gonna love it!
Do you have curly hair? Do you suffer from frizz, tangles, breakage, and split ends? Maybe it’s time you quit abusing your tender tendrils with terry cloth towels.
