Get Catty With Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses


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

Tatcha, I'm So Glad I Gotcha


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

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

What were you doing ten years ago?
Ten years ago, I had just wrapped up my sophomore at Ursinus College. I remember being pretty impressed with myself for successfully making a case to drop my dreaded bio major, but keep my pre-med full scholarship (hooray…no more messing with icky Drosophila!)

mazda+rx 7 Tag...Im ItThat summer, I answered a help wanted ad in the paper, announcing an immediate opening in publishing; that opportunity turned out to be a receptionist position at a newspaper covering the exciting world of construction equipment. I got my first car that year, a 1984 Mazda RX-7 that I called Scarlett, thanks to her red leather interior.

* Make an appointment to join new gym
* Catch up on some overdue product reviews

* Avoid outdoors as much as possible (it’s 98 degrees and humid in Philly)

funyuns1 Tag...Im ItSnacks you enjoy?
I try not to snack. But when I do, I enjoy Doritos, pretzels, popcorn, bananas, and peanuts (especially the ones still in the shells)…I like having to work for it.

I also have a weakness for Funyuns.

Philadelphia, PA
Glenside, PA
Collegeville, PA

* Start my own non-profit organization in Philadelphia

This British actress sure has transformed herself over the years. She’s barely recognizable in this photo from 1993, the year she got her big-screen big break. Can you guess who she is?

Lil Kim, BIG Problem

lil+kim Lil Kim, BIG Problem
Allow me to digress for a second…

Lil Kim walked the pink carpet at the NYC premiere of Sex And The City: The Movie.

More shocking than the fact that she was fully clothed was the condition of her face. Look at Lil Kim’s face, people! She looks like the lost member of The Chipettes.

Let this be a lesson to us all. Makeup is for a moment. This hot mess is forever.

When Did You Fall In Love With Beauty?

Posted on by daneen in I Digress | 6 Comments

barbiehead When Did You Fall In Love With Beauty?
Most beauty addicts can pinpoint a moment in their life when they fell in love with hair and makeup.

For me, it was my Barbie Styling Head. Back in the day, I would spend hours trying to replicate the exaggerated 1980’s beauty trends on my Barbie Head. I braided and teased her hair within an inch of its life. At one point, I remember filling my mini hands full of Eucerin lotion and slicking Barbie’s hair back – a la Robert Palmer’s Addicted to Love. And in the 80’s, the head came with powder and cream “makeup” that was probably only meant for Barbie’s plastic face…but inevitably ended up all over my highly sensitive one. They didn’t worry as much about toxicity and choking hazards back then. Ah…those were the days.

When did your love of beauty begin?
