My hair grows like a weed. Unfortunately, the hair of which I speak is not on my head. My legs and underarms give my razor a workout. If I shave in the morning, by afternoon, I've got stubble. And forget about skipping days...unless I want to look like Sasquatch. Getting rid of the hair is not only expensive (I CONTINUE READING
The shower and my chemically-straightened hair are frenemies. Every seventh day when I wash my hair, they get along great in a shampoo Shangri-la. But the rest of the week, I employ a shower cap to keep the steam from undoing the silky straightness. I have been wearing shower caps since I was a child, and I’ve tried them CONTINUE READING

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
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
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
Today, Avon announced it has signed actress Zoë Saldana to be the spokeswoman for the brand’s new fragrance, Eternal Magic, debuting April 2010. In addition to supporting Eternal Magic, Saldana will also be featured in the company’s brochure as a face of Avon’s color cosmetics category in the coming months.
“I’m very proud to be working with Avon and to be the face of Eternal Magic,” says Saldana. “It means so much to me to be associated with a company that shares my values and believes in empowering women.”
“We are thrilled to have Zoë as the spokesperson for Eternal Magic. Every woman wants to be unforgettable and Zoë perfectly embodies that feeling. She’s a rising star in Hollywood – and has built a strong reputation for playing empowering characters that leave a lasting impression,” says Geralyn Breig, Senior Vice President and President of Avon North America. “We were drawn to her inner and outer beauty, and feel she represents the perfect combination of strength and femininity.”
An unforgettable fragrance that leaves an indelible impression, Eternal Magic creates everlasting memories with a fragrance signature that lingers in the air. The artfully crafted fragrance takes inspiration from the rare Princess Monaco Rose. The enchanting scent is the embodiment of the unique magic that surrounds mysterious, alluring women everywhere.
Though you can’t buy Kim Kardashian’s new fragrance until February, you can get a sneak peek at Sephora.com and be notified when it’s available for purchase.
The essence evokes Kim’s sultry style with crisp top notes, lush mid notes, and a sexy drydown. Gorgeous, voluptuous florals reflect her allure, while soft jasmine, tuberose, and gardenia mirror her femininity. Tonka bean, jacaranda wood, and sandalwood add a warm, sensual base.
The Kim Kardashian fragrance collection includes: 1 oz Eau de Parfum Spray ($35), 1.7 oz Eau de Parfum Spray ($50), 3.4 oz Eau de Parfum Spray ($65), and .33 oz Eau de Parfum Rollerball ($16).
Glam Princess is “for the boldly brilliant girl who is ready to celebrate and rule the world in the most glamorous way. She introduces herself with guava and juicy pear, reveals her beautiful heart with liquid honey and vanilla orchid, and offers sweet depth with marshmallow accord and cedarwood.”
Zoe Kravitz has succeeded Camila Belle as the new face of Vera Wang Princess. Descended from rock/celeb royalty (her parents are Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet), I think she’s a great choice to usher Princess into the a new decade.
So, does Glam Princess rule? I actually haven’t sniffed Glam Princess yet, but I own – and adore – the other Princess incarnations (Flower Princess, Rock Princess and the original Princess, which I wore on my wedding day)…so I plan to stop by Sephora this week and get a whiff. I’ll let you know what my nose thinks soon.
Vera Wang Glam Princess comes in 1 oz Eau de Toilette Spray ($45), 3.4 oz Eau de Toilette Spray ($72), and 5 oz Satiny Body Lotion ($32).
Last year, I wanted to buy my sister, Lauren (an Amazing Grace newbie), a gift set. I searched all over the Internet and in stores to find the most comprehensive collection at a low price point…and nothing even came close to this one. Lauren loved it, and I was so happy to share one of my favorite scents with my lil sis.
The Gift of Grace or Love 4-Piece Fragrance Collection (available in Amazing Grace, Pure Grace, and Falling in Love) features Philosophy’s highest-concentrated eau de parfum fragrance plus hand cream, body lotion, and 3-in-1 shower gel or shower cream – all in full sizes! It also includes a bonus bar soap. Perfectly packaged, the set is ready for giving.
Purchased separately, the products would cost you $119. But on QVC.com, it’s only $71. And today, it’s on sale for the low, low price of $58.74!
