Bath & Body Works Cooling Gel Lotion Needs A New Name


A few weeks ago, I paid a visit to my local Bath & Body Works store. I was on the hunt for a tropical-smelling body wash that wouldn't break the bank, and B&BW seemed like a good place to search. When I entered the store, I was greeted my a really nice saleswoman who asked me what I was CONTINUE READING

Laura Mercier Master Class: Makeup Bag Must-Haves in Your 30s


Every month, my girlfriends from college and I get together for dinner in the Philadelphia area. We started this tradition about two years ago, and - of course - we have a great time catching up and reminiscing!  Most of them are product-obsessed (like me), and most have been through some sort of make-up introductory when we became "of age" to wear it.  Now CONTINUE READING

Dermadoctor Physical Chemistry


One of my all-time favorite products is Dermadoctor KP Duty, a dual action body exfoliator that combines the benefits of a chemical peel and microdermabrasion. It was developed to treat chicken skin - those little red bumps that many people get on their upper arms. But, for years, I've been using it to exfoliate my legs pre-shave.  There's really no body exfoliator CONTINUE READING

What A Doll!

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities, I Digress | 9 Comments

Artist Noel Cruz took an ordinary doll, removed the factory paint and repainted the figurine using acrylics after he was inspired by the ‘enigmatic beauty’ of Angelina Jolie. What resulted is, perhaps, one of the most lifelike and creepy dolls I’ve ever seen.

angelina+doll2 What A Doll!The doll is missing Angie’s signature tattoos. But Cruz, who specializes in painting dolls to resemble celebrities, says that they can be added for an extra cost of between £10 and £20, depending on the complexity of the design. And the doll can don different wigs for a variety of looks.

So how much will one of these doppelganger dolls run you? A private bidder recently paid £2,000 for his/her own mini Angelina.

I’d bet cash money that the anonymous buyer is none other Jennifer Aniston, and that she’s sticking pins in that thing like it’s her J-O-B.

Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger

handcuff Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger
I’m a beauty addict with a nasty little habit. I don’t like to play by the rules.

If a face mask says to leave it on for a half hour, I’m watching an entire episode of Project Runway before I take it off. When a product recommends using a dime-sized amount, I squeeze out a silver dollar. And if a conditioner says to rinse after 3-5 minutes, you best believe I’m letting it marinate like a mutha.

Why am I compelled to rebel? Perhaps it’s because I think that by using more product or leaving it on longer, I’ll be more happy with the results. Silly, I realize…but I’ve been behaving this way for so long, I can’t help myself.

Does anyone else do this? I can’t be the only rule breaker.

The Bodega Lady Outed Me

Posted on by daneen in I Digress | 6 Comments

bag+head The Bodega Lady Outed Me
So yesterday, I met up with Amber, who was in town visiting the parental units. Before heading to St. Stephen’s Green – a little brasserie around the corner from my apartment (they have the yummiest hummus) – we stopped at my neighborhood bodega so that I could hit up the ATM (or MAC machine, as we say in these parts). As we’re walking out of the store, the owner looks at me strangely before saying, “Something’s different about you. Oh, I know…you’re wearing makeup.” OMG! I’d been outed by the bodega lady…and in front of a fellow beauty blogger, to boot. Amber thought it was HILAR.

You see – like many beauty editors, I’m too busy (lazy) to wear a full face of makeup on the regular. So 9 times out of 10, I’m walking around with a nekkid face, save for mascara and lipgloss. But when I do wear makeup, I get the most wide-eyed stares and confusion ensues…like it’s the big reveal at the end of an eppy of Extreme Makeover.

Makes me wonder just how busted I must look 90 percent of the time. Ugh…I shudder to think.

Any other lazy makeup lovers out there?

Get In Shape Girl

rhythmic+gymnastics Get In Shape Girl
Are rhythmic gymnastics Olympic sports anymore? I’m feeling too lazy to do the research. But if trampoline is a sport, someone needs to bust out some balls, hoola hoops and ribbons right quick.

As a child, I remember tirelessly training for the Olympics with my Get In Shape Girl equipment. And I know I wasn’t the only one…
