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.

Obey Your Body

Buffer Obey Your Body
Thanks to a tip from the Beauty Blogging Junkie, I took a trip to a kiosk at the Montgomery Mall, outside of Philadelphia. This stand sells Obey Your Body, a complete line of skin care and spa products that are made in Israel using original Dead Sea minerals, water, and mud.

If you’re in the Philly area, I highly recommend that you pay this kiosk a visit. But don’t plan on drive-buy (your visit will take 10-15 minutes) – because the salesman is all about showmanship. He’s going to do demonstrations, tell jokes, and enlighten you about the healing powers of the Dead Sea. The routine almost takes on a magic show-esque quality. But trust me, it’s all worth it…because when you get the products home and try them for yourself, that’s when the real magic happens.

camera+12.11+160 Obey Your BodyMy mom, sister, and I all purchased The Ultimate Nail Care Kit, which contains a nail file, buffer, cuticle oil, and hand & body lotion. But the standout of the bunch is the nail buffer – which is unlike any other I have ever used. In the time that it usually takes for me to locate my bottle of clear polish, I buffed my way to super-shiny nails.

Don’t live anywhere near Philadelphia? No problem. You can still Obey Your Body by visiting the website.

Can’t Help It

Posted on by daneen in Nail Polish, Nails, Video | Leave a comment

I’ve been singing Fergie’s new song, Clumsy, for two days straight. It’s so infectious – I can’t get it out of my brain. The equally addictive video is below. Dean and Dan Caten (of Dsquared) make an appearance, as do some well-placed MAC products. Apparently, the new Viva Glam spokeswoman doesn’t waste any time assuming her duties.

And how fantabulous is the inky nail situation she’s got going on?

Ugg?

Posted on by daneen in Nail Polish, Nails, Pedicure | 1 Comment

Picture it…it’s January in Jersey and your toes are looking jacked up. What to do? You could get a pedicure, but afterwards, you risk ruining your perfect polish by putting your socks and shoes back on. So what’s the solution? You could take up residence in the nail salon until your toenails are completely dry (tip: bring a book, it could be a while), or brave the freezing cold and winds in flip flops.

Now, there’s a third option. A few years ago, three sisters longed for a solution to the age-old problem of how to enjoy their favorite spa service in winter – and not freeze their tootsies off. Bootie Pies is their brainchild.

 Ugg?Bootie Pies are suede boots have a patent leather toe that flips up when you get your toes painted, keeping the rest of your foot toasty and warm. They are currently offered in four colors, and come in women’s whole sizes 5-11.

Bootie Pies have been featured on the TODAY Show, in In Touch Magazine, and in the 2007 Grammy Celebrity Gift Basket . They have been embraced by celebrities, including Mary J. Blige, Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Hudson, Fergie, The Pussycat Dolls, and Trish McEvoy.

Bootie Pies seem to have a lot of fans. Are you one? Would you pay $128 for a pair?

Breakup Makeup

When we get our hearts broken, emotions run the gamut. We heal ourselves through tears, fill our iPods with sad love songs, and use Häagen-Dazs as an analgesic. But when things are going bad, sometimes the best revenge is looking good.

Polished, But A Bit Rough Around The Edges

Posted on by daneen in Nails, Tools | Leave a comment

sehorabuffer Polished, But A Bit Rough Around The EdgesI’m a woman who likes to look polished, but never seems to have the time to pull it off. So on a trip to Sephora last week, I picked up their Professionnel Electrical Buffer. This battery-operated, nail buffer promises professional, salon quality results at home. It includes three detachable buffing pads: a heavier grit for shaping, a super-fine grit for smoothing, and a foam pad for adding luster.

This gadget is ideal for smoothing nails in preparation for polish, and for creating a natural buffed shine. Unfortunately, the filing attachment leaves much to be desired; with this tool, it might take you all day to file down a snagged nail – so don’t throw out your trusty emery board just yet.

All things considered, it was $20 well spent…and used in tandem with my OPI Ridge Filler, my nail routine is going to be smooth sailing.
