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
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

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
Even if you already own every single one of Urban Decay’s cult classic 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils (like me), I insist that you purchase their new 24/7 Super Stash. Why? Well, if you’re addicted to these eye pencils like I am, you won’t be able to live one more day without the four NEW shades included in this set.
24/7 Super Stash includes nine mini-sized 24/7 Eye Pencils:
Zero (black) Oil Slick* (black sparkle) Corrupt* (brown sparkle) Eldorado* (a new gold) Graffiti (bright medium green with silver sparkle) Binge* (navy) Ransom (bright iridescent purple) Rockstar (darkest eggplant) Stash (dark green/gold)
The Oil Slick pencil, alone, is worth the price of admission. I’ve been rocking it every single day since I got this kit.
Urban Decay wasn’t lying when they said, “Any UD junkie will pee their pants at the sight of this amazing set.”

Yesterday, I visited my local Bath & Body Works store to replenish my Japanese Cherry Blossom Creamy Body Wash stock…and I almost started twitching. Not only was it nowhere to be found, there were no Creamy Body Washes to speak of.
I made a beeline for a helpful saleswoman, who calmed me down and assured me that they would be back on shelves soon.
Totally jonesing for my my beloved body wash and unsatisfied with the vague timeline given for its re-release, I emailed my contact at the company. She informed me that they are being reformulated with a triple moisture complex moisturizes skin all day and also shows visible improvement in skin’s radiance and feel. While the old stock is still available on bathandbodyworks.com, the new batch will hit stores around October 15th.
Thank heavens for small miracles. You’re welcome, fellow Creamy Body Wash fiends.
Congrats to Suriyati Barnes and Faith Perfecto, winners of the DERMAdoctor giveaway. These ladies have won the best body scrub ever, DERMAdoctor’s KP Duty Body Scrub. This amazing exfoliator acts as a chemical peel and microdermabrasion session in one – leaving skin resurfaced, retexturized, soft, smooth and radiant. I am 100% confident that Suriyati and Faith will love it as much as I do!
Many thanks to DERMAdoctor for spoiling these readers pretty. Stay tuned for your next chance to win. The contest I have cooked up for later this week is hot like fiya!
