If You Have Hair, The Wet Brush is a Must Have


For years, I have used an oversized wide-tooth comb to detangle my notoriously impossible to detangle post-shampoo hair. The amount of hair that would get caught in the teeth was somewhat alarming. But I chalked it up to the fact that I only wash my hair once a week - so maybe the hair loss really wasn't all that CONTINUE READING

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Cover April Issue of Vogue


Welp, folks, it looks like Kanye finally wore Anna Wintour down and got his baby mama a coveted Vogue cover. So the rumors were true. There was buzz a few months back that Kim would cover the fashion bible, but then everyone assumed it would be a foreign Vogue - given Anna's alleged aversion to all things Kardashian. I CONTINUE READING

links jewelry bracelet Giveaway: Links Jewelry Rose Gold Chain Bracelet!

After beauty products, handbags and jewelry are my secondary addictions. Obviously, this site is chock full of makeup reviews and you’ll also find a good amount of purse posts. But I don’t write very often about jewelry. Maybe it’s that I have such discriminating taste that I only come across a need-to-have piece once in a while. Or perhaps it’s because jewelry is such a personal thing…you find a piece you love and you want to be the only one wearing it.

Anyway, I’m writing my first jewelry post in a long time because I recently discovered some jewelry that made me swoon. And you know that when something is swoon-inducing, my natural instinct is to gab about it and spread the news far and wide.

Links Jewelry is a jewelry brand that manufactures the most gorge necklaces and bracelets – for both ladies and men. The jewelry features a patented chain and leather design that is handmade in America by American artisans. The Classic Line is finished in 14kt yellow gold, white gold, rose gold or sterling silver. The Sport Line features copper oxide, carbon microfiber and black steel treatments. Bracelet prices range from $129.00 to $559.00. Each piece is beautifully unique…like the kind that makes other women day, “OMG…that is so cute! Where did you get that?” Yeah, that kind.

But beyond creating cuteness, Links Jewelry is a socially conscious company that instills their “Look Good, Do Good, Feel Good” message in each piece they create. 10% of sales go directly towards Sean Penn’s J/P Haitian Relief Organization.  Knowing that rose gold is my metal soulmate, Links sent me some bracelets to review and they are amazeballs. Just take a look.

Check Out My New Arm Candy: Rebecca Minkoff Swing Bag

Posted on by daneen in Featured, Handbags, Jewelry | 3 Comments

rebecca minkoff swing1 Check Out My New Arm Candy: Rebecca Minkoff Swing BagAfter beauty products, handbags are my secondary addiction. But when it comes to arm candy, I have discriminating taste. For me, the perfect handbag seamlessly marries fashion with function, is handcrafted from high-quality materials, has really unique hardware and is classic but edgy – all at the same time. I don’t like to carry the of-the-moment “it” bag. I actually like to be somewhat of a tease…I get a kick out when strangers approach me to ask about my bag and who designed it. Nine times out of ten, the answer to that question is Rebecca Minkoff.

Rebecca Minkoff’s handbags are my dreams made reality. I don’t know how she does it, but she must have a window into my soul – because every time I’m in the market for a new purse, I find that she’s designed exactly what I’m looking for. She also seems extremely cool and down to earth, plus she’s a new-ish mom, like me…so we’re totally BFIMH (Best Friends in My Head) – along with Kerry Washington, Kathy Griffin and Wendy Williams.

Anyway, so I’ve been rocking my Lodis Dahlia Joelle Hobo since December. But now that it’s spring, I’ve been itching for a brighter bag. Something that’s work appropriate but that I can also work on the weekends. And it’s gotta be crossbody because my hands are always full. My search lead me to the Rebecca Minkoff Swing Bag (in Sunny), which I just purchased (if my husband is reading this, don’t worry – I used a gift card).

rebecca minkoff swing3 Check Out My New Arm Candy: Rebecca Minkoff Swing BagPolished hardware accents the soft pebbled leather of this Rebecca Minkoff handbag. A zip pocket details the exterior, and the gusseted sides unzip to expand the silhouette. Metal studs rest at the base, while the snap top opens to a divided 4-pocket interior. The leather-laced chain strap can be doubled, singled, or tucked inside for 3 stylish options: cross-body, shoulder bag, or clutch.

Gorgeous, no? I CAN’T WAIT for the Shopbop stork to drop this baby on my doorstep. And here’s what else is coming with it (I had a little extra $ on my gift card):
