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

Peep My Polish: Revlon Top Speed Nail Enamel in Superstitious


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

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

I’m "It"

Posted on by daneen in I Digress | 4 Comments

Daneen   Paris Im "It"
I’ve been tagged by Diva In A Carry On. Now that I’m “it,” I have to write 7 random facts about myself, then tag 7 other bloggers. So without further pomp and circumstance, here’s a lil’ sumthin’ sumthin’ you probably didn’t know about your resident beauty know-it-all:

1) Besides Philly, my favorite city is Madrid, Spain. I had my purse stolen there, but who can hold a grudge against a place with such fantastic shopping, architecture, food, and culture? Sometimes, during an especially tiring day, I take a mental siesta and imagine that I’m at a tapas bar eating gambas al ajillo and red wine sangria.

2) My favorite television show is Project Runway (I’ve seen every episode at least 10 times). My favorite movie? It’s a tie between The Sound of Music and Pulp Fiction…yes, I know I’m weird.

3) I memorized the Hail Mary, in French, when I was in the first grade – and I can still recite it to this day.

4) My dream job would be to perform on Broadway. In undergrad, I majored in Communications and Theater – and I wrote my senior thesis on the Pulitzer Prize-winning musical Rent.

5) My favorite musicians are Jeff Buckley and Otis Redding.

6) Although I work in marketing and public relations, I attended law school – where I met my husband, on the first day of orientation.

7) My favorite word is facetious (did you know that facetiously is one of only two English words with all five vowels and the semivowel y in alphabetical order?)

The End Of The (Real) World As We Know It?

Posted on by daneen in I Digress | Leave a comment

trw The End Of The (Real) World As We Know It?There’s no beauty-related element to this post, but humor me for a second. I just saw a commercial for next week’s episode of The Real World: Sydney. Apparently, Parisa and Trisha are gonna get into it again. But this time, one of them will “cross the line and be sent home”, which means that three of the seven strangers will have left early (Shauvon returned to her controlling boyfriend two weeks ago, and Isaac took off yesterday after having acid-trip flashbacks of blackbirds). Three down – and they haven’t even gone on their vacation yet!

I thought that this might spell the end of an era…but Wikipedia has informed me that season 20 is already in production. The location? Hollywood, California – cuz it doesn’t get any more real than Hollywood.

This post isn’t about about beauty, but I had to share. How entertaining is this new McDonald’s commercial? I get excited everytime it comes on TV. Too cute…

Does L.C. Live at Les Deux?

 Does L.C. Live at Les Deux?
From People.com: Sexy sailor Lauren Conrad reports for duty at L.A. hot spot Les Deux, where she joined her Hills pal Audrina Partridge for a Hpnotiq-sponsored Halloween party on Tuesday.

Spoiled Pretty’s take: It’s a little spooky how much L.C. looks like Marcia Brady, right? Maybe that should have been her costume, instead of this shipwreck of an outfit.
