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

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

Anyone Here Watch The Bachelor?

final6 Anyone Here Watch The Bachelor?
Does anyone else watch The Bachelor: London Calling? It’s okay to admit it. This is a safe place.

shayne Anyone Here Watch The Bachelor?How funny was it last night when Shayne snowboarded down the mountain, sat on a mound of snow, then produced like eight beauty products from her parka to touch up her makeup? I was rolling! Even more hilarious was the revelation that Lorenzo Lamas is her dad.

Shayne was kinda working my nerves before. But we beauty addicts have to stick together. I predict she’ll make it to the final two – along with Amanda.

Okay, okay. Enough reality TV talk. Back to your regularly-scheduled beauty programming…

Nina Garcia, I’m Sorry…But You’re Out

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities, I Digress, Project Runway | 1 Comment

nina Nina Garcia, Im Sorry...But Youre OutJust days after Project Runway said “Auf Wiedersehen” to Bravo, Elle Magazine tells PR judge Nina Garcia she’s out.

Nina, who has served as Elle’s fashion director since 2000, “was in the office on Friday morning, but by the afternoon, sources close to the building say Hachette’s Midtown offices were abuzz about the rumor.”

This story continues to unfold – so though no official reason has been given for Nina’s departure, I’m sure more salacious details will be forthcoming.

It remains to be seen if/how this breakup will affect her position as Project Runway’s resident style guru.

From Edward Scissorhands To Salute Your Shorts

wino From Edward Scissorhands To Salute Your Shorts
I know this isn’t beauty related, but I felt the need to share. So even though I could care less about Winona Ryder – when I saw this pic of her boyfriend, Blake Soper, I thought he looked vaguely familiar. Turns out he was on that Nickelodeon show Salute Your Shorts back in the day.

Remember that show? Don’t pretend you don’t know what I’m talking about.

OMG, Winona! One day she’s got the hottest Hollywood bachelors in her little black book (remember when she dated Matt Damon?)…next thing you know, she’s (allegedly) betrothed to Salute Your Shorts kid.

Lesson learned: Winona should have used her sticky fingers to hold onto Johnny Depp, rather than shoplift at Saks.

Michael Kors Is Just Like Us

michael kors Michael Kors Is Just Like UsFashion genius Michael Kors shares his Wednesday morning ritual with Style.com. Like me, he’s addicted to tabloid magazines. Just when I thought I couldn’t love MK more, he gives me one more reason to add to the lengthy list. Don’t you just wanna put Michael in your purse and carry him around with you all day? Or is it just me?

It’s A Lipstick Jungle, But The Shades Are All The Same

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities, I Digress | 3 Comments

lj2 Its A Lipstick Jungle, But The Shades Are All The Same
Lipstick Jungle, the new primetime series based on the 2005 Candace Bushnell novel of the same name, premiers tonight at 10pm. This highly-anticipated show about has drawn comparisons to Sex and The City. And its stars (Brooke Shields, Lindsay Price, and Kim Raver) have been on quite the media blitz lately, including several promotional appearances at Fashion Week’s hottest runway shows.

How many of you will be watching? I’m still on the fence. On the one hand, SATC is one of my all-time faves, and I’m hoping that Lipstick will be a satisfactory successor. But at the same time, why is it that this genre always seems so white-washed?

Yeah, I am aware that Lindsay Price (whose mom is Korean) is on the show, and Cashmere Mafia’s got Lucy Liu…but how come there’s never a brown girl on any of these programs? News flash, TV execs: an African-American socialite/fashionista/successful career-woman is not an oxymoron.

I mean, damn – give me a pair of Jimmy Choo’s and I’ll represent!
