Tatcha, I'm So Glad I Gotcha


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

Bath & Body Works Cooling Gel Lotion Needs A New Name


A few weeks ago, I paid a visit to my local Bath & Body Works store. I was on the hunt for a tropical-smelling body wash that wouldn't break the bank, and B&BW seemed like a good place to search. When I entered the store, I was greeted my a really nice saleswoman who asked me what I was CONTINUE READING

Laura Mercier Master Class: Makeup Bag Must-Haves in Your 30s


Every month, my girlfriends from college and I get together for dinner in the Philadelphia area. We started this tradition about two years ago, and - of course - we have a great time catching up and reminiscing!  Most of them are product-obsessed (like me), and most have been through some sort of make-up introductory when we became "of age" to wear it.  Now CONTINUE READING

The Project Runway Season 4 winner has teamed up with the O-Cel-O brand on new scrub sponges inspired by his 2011 spring collection. Launching now at retail locations nationwide, the scrub sponges offer fun and unexpected style for the sink – perfect for cleaning up your hot mess of dirty dishes.

“African, Indian and Asian influences served as the inspiration for my first-ever sponge designs,” said Siriano. “Both patterns, Leopard and Muse, are meant to captivate the eye through the use of color and the latest trends.”

The limited edition O-Cel-O™ No-Scratch Scrub Sponges are ideal for cleaning delicate surfaces from glassware and china to counters and stainless steel cookware. The scrub sponges are available in a 2-pack for a suggested retail price of $2.59 or a 3-pack for $3.60.

Project Runway All-Star Challenge!

Posted on by daneen in Project Runway | Leave a comment

Project+Runway+All+Star+Challenge Project Runway All Star Challenge!

For the first time in Project Runway history, eight former fan favorites and Project Runway superstars are returning to the catwalk to compete against one another in the two-hour special, Project Runway: All-Star Challenge. The spirited competition premieres Thursday, August 20, at 8PM ET/PT and will be followed by the highly anticipated premiere of the sixth season of Project Runway at 10PM ET/PT and the debut of the all-new companion series, Models of the Runway, at 11PM ET/PT.

At stake for the designers are not only the ultimate bragging rights, but also a $100,000 cash prize. Will the designers be up to the challenge of returning to the workroom, working under the “Gunn” (as in Tim Gunn) to create a successful fashion line? Are they ready to, once again, face the critiques of Heidi Klum, Michael Kors and Nina Garcia, as they showcase their creations?

The designers competing in Project Runway: All-Star Challenge are:

Daniel Vosovic, Season 2
Santino Rice, Season 2
Jeffrey Sebelia, Season 3
Uli Herzner, Season 3
Mychael Knight, Season 3
Chris March, Season 4
Sweet P, Season 4
Korto Momolu, Season 5

I’m rooting for Mychael (my favorite PR alumnus) to redeem himself and take it all. Who will you be cheering for?


First Look: Project Runway Season Six

Posted on by daneen in Project Runway | Leave a comment

The BS knockoff that is Bravo’s The Fashion Show (they booted Reco in part 1 of the finale, but let James Paul and his trash bag creations stay…discuss amongst yourselves) just makes me appreciate Project Runway all the more. And I’m so excited that season six will make its much-anticipated debut on Lifetime Television on Thursday, August 20 at 10 PM ET/PT.

Heidi Klum, Tim Gunn, Michael Kors and Nina Garcia will guide sixteen contestants as they showcase their design skills to see who makes the cut for Fashion Week. Filmed in Los Angeles and New York City, this season will feature influential guest judges from the worlds of fashion, music, film and television.

Can’t wait? Me neither. The Project Runway blog is pretty entertaining, and should keep me from twitching until the August premiere.

Project Runway Returns On August 20th

project+runway+season+six+cast Project Runway Returns On August 20th

Mark your calendars and set your DVR. Project Runway returns to television on August 20th.

But starting this season, you’ll have to tune into Lifetime instead of Bravo to see who makes the cut and who gets auf’ed. Rumor has it that season six will be steeped in controversy. Tim Gunn dishes to the Miami Herald, “There’s a big time shocker, some purported cheating….the blogs will be clogged. They won’t be able to vent enough about it.”

Visit the Project Runway section of mylifetime.com for more information about the designers and the new season. There’s enough tasty morsels to tide you over until the premiere.
