Because my hair is over-processed, dry and damaged, I only wash it about once a week. Which means that when I “do” it, I better do it right – or else my hair will look jacked for the next seven days. Forget a bad hair day; it’s more like a bad hair week for me. So when I’m offered CONTINUE READING
This weekend, grab your girlfriends and go see The Best Man Holiday – which hits theaters today.
On Tuesday, I attended a screening with Mama Spoiled Pretty and her BFF, Estelle – and we had so much fun. We laughed hard and cried harder (this rom-com is also a tearjerker - so bring some tissues). In fact, I got so CONTINUE READING

As you probably know, I am a marketing professional by day, a beauty blogger by night and a mom/wife 24/7. But what you may not know is that, after graduating from college, I attended law school. Ultimately, I chose a different path - which makes me much happier. What doesn't make me happy, however, are the school loans I've CONTINUE READING

As a city built on water, Venice was a source of great intrigue for Gabrielle Chanel. She saw it as simultaneously dramatic and fragile – qualities she herself possessed. With the imagination of the Chanel Makeup Studio, Venice comes to life in a palette reflective of the city’s shimmering facades and mosaics, and the sparkling aquatic colours of its lagoons.
As seen in the runway looks created by Peter Philips, Global Creative Director of Chanel Makeup, at the 2009/10 Cruise Collection show, held on the beaches of Venice, Italy, rich sienna and deep rose tones, and dusky greys and greens combine for a modern look that can be softened for day or emboldened come evening.
EXCLUSIVE CREATION:Eye Gloss Luminous Cream Quadra Eye Shadow is a quartet of gel-cream shades – pearl, gold, black and red black – delivers a subtle luminous sheen that blends beautifully, from sheer to intense.
While “a kiss on the hand can be quite continental,” a modern girl does the kissing now, knowing she has the drop-dead drama of these hot new Dazzleglass shades.
In the very latest violet, coral and pink passion hues, to add the sheen, the sparkle, and the ooh-la-la that never fails to entertain. They’re the “something extra” we’ve added to the lipstick and Dazzleglass collection Euristocrats can’t get enough of.
More, More, More!

Let’s be honest. Most Valentine’s Day gift sets are a little gimmicky. We’re in a recession – so buying a bunch of products that you’re not in love with doesn’t make much sense. If it wouldn’t set your pulse racing a month from now, set it down. Am I right?
Which brings me to The Love Set by NARS – a gift set so loveable, you don’t need a commercialized holiday to justify this purchase. This assortment of flirtatious hues help you achieve that coveted after-glow:
Pillow Talk Lip Gloss The unique, semi-sheer formulation provides serious shine and imparts a warm azalea pink hue. May be worn alone or atop any lipstick for a perfectly sexy pout.
Sex Machine Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Combining the convenience of a pencil with the application of a lipstick, this rich, pink-mauve lip pencil provides a matte, creamy finish that will last for hours.
Orgasm Blush This cult classic makes cheeks blush a perfect pinky-peach flush and subtly highlights with accents of golden shimmer.
Available exclusively at Sephora, this limited edition set is $49 (a $73 value).
Double desire. Love-me-two-times lips. A clever girl carries the conversation by making you believe in both sides of her story: Creamy, quixotic colour, and hard-line, super-sexy shine.
