Tomorrow morning, I’ll make my second appearance on the NBC 10! Show. In honor of Earth Day, I’ll be sharing my top five eco-friendly beauty finds.
I’m a lot less nervous than last time, but I caught a cold from my sister – so I’ve been nursing a sore throat today and willing myself to get better. Sheer will didn’t work, so I resorted to Tylenol Cold medicine, which has me feeling a bit loopy.
So cross your fingers for me, and pray that tomorrow’s segment doesn’t turn into a Vitameatavegamin type situation. Though that would be absolutely hilarious.
Watch what happens: NBC 10 at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, April 21st.
How sick are these flats? Yesterday, my sister and I met up with Amber (home for the holidays) at the Willow Grove Mall – and we all fell in love with these Whitney Patent Flats at Banana Republic. They’re very Michelle Obama, no?
I’m also jonesing for these blinged-out J. Crew Metallic Mesh Flip-Flops. I’ve eyed them up during my last two trips to the store. Next time, I’m bringing them home with me.
Yesterday, I paid a little visit to my friend J. Crew. The purveyor of preppy has a store at the Philadelphia Premium Outlets – and I was absolutely shocked by the inventory. Many of the items in stock are still in J. Crew’s regular stores and on the website…but in the outlet store, the prices were so ridiculously low that I was pinching myself to make sure this wasn’t one of my ‘everything I want is on the clearance rack’ dreams.
Take this Convertible Swing Dress, for example. On jcrew.com, it’s listed as a new arrival and is priced at $78. But I picked it up today at the outlet store for less than half the price! The tag was marked $49.50, but it was my lucky day because all lounge dresses were an extra 30% off. So I scooped up the Swing Dress for just $34.65, which is an unbelievable steal because it’s actually three dresses in one!
I don’t typically buy summer dresses this early in the year; my head’s just not in the game yet. But then I thought about how scorching and sticky the summers can get in Philly – and how I complain, every year, that I wish I had more comfy sundresses. So I snatched this up, wishing they also stocked the dress in more colors. Unfort, they only had black.

When it comes to a MAC products, my sister and I are drawn to them like moths to a flame. So when we visited the Willow Grove Mall a few days ago with Mama Spoiled Pretty, it was no surprise that we couldn’t escape without a visit to the MAC counter at Bloomingdale’s. What was supposed to be swift stopover ended up being a half-hour spending spree.
While Lauren let the makeup artist paint her eyes in hues of blue, I made a beeline for the lip glosses – swatching at least a dozen on my inner arm. And my low-maintenance mom looked on in awe, wondering how she birthed such product-addicted daughters. When Lauren’s makeover was complete, she joined me in playing with the glosses. I asked for her opinion of MAC Plushglass in Fulfilled, which I was seriously considering adding to my collection. “It’s sick,” she exclaimed. So I decided to buy it…and so did she.
Though it’s described as ‘full-blush creamy pink,’ I think that cantaloupe-y cream pink would be more accurate. As you can see in the photo, it wears super sheer – and inflates the lips without the burning sting that accompanies many lip plumpers.
I love this formula and adore this shade. And while my lip gloss collection is incalculable, I definitely feel like a void has been filled by Fulfilled. It will be my go-to non-shimmery gloss when I’m playing up my eyes, but I still want a come-hither kisser.
