Serena, don’t be sad.
Your nail polish looks fab.
For the last 24+ hours, I have been obsessing over Serena’s nail polish from the May 12th eppy of Gossip Girl. Check out the following pics and drink in the frosty golden mauvelousness.
To replicate the look, I rifled through my lacquer arsenal, and found three that were just about spot-on.
Essie Tea & Crumpets is a subtle, ladylike frosted beige.
Essie Mambo is a frosty mocha.
Boys in the Bottle is a shimmery pink/purple nude.
I just about hit the nail on the head, right? Get it? Nail…on…the…never mind.

You spin me right round baby, right round,

Since posting my review of SPINLASH, I have been inundated with comments and emails from you all. Does it really work? Is it worth the money? How fast does the brush actually spin? Should you be afraid of putting it near your eyes?
Instead of dedicating an entire post to answering your queries, I thought I would do something a bit more fun. And fabulous. How ’bout a SPINLASH giveaway?!?!
This week, we’re giving you the chance to win a SPINLASH of your very own. Five of you will get spoiled pretty with this genius gadget that separates, curls, coats, volumizes, and lengthens your lashes.

Winners will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Monday, May 19th, I’ll announce the winners’ names.

This past weekend, I took a trip to the mall…shout-out to KOP (you Philly gals know what I’m talkin’ about). I was in Nordstrom’s cosmetics department for, literally, three minutes before a salesperson had me sold on a bottle of Hanae Mori Butterfly Eau Fraîche.
I usually spend weeks hemming and hawing over a new fragrance, and only break down and buy it once I’ve decided that my pulse points can’t live without it. Well, with Eau Fraîche, it took me approximately 180 seconds to come to this conclusion.
As I reported a few months ago, the latest incarnation of my favorite fragrance is the lightest formulation yet; this variation is airier and perfect for warmer weather. The new top notes of sparking tangerine and grapefruit lend a summery kick, but the fragrance dries down to the familiar notes of red fruits, wild berries and summer woods.
Besides the intoxicating scent, what really convinced me to swipe the plastic was the price tag. A 3.4 oz bottle of this limited-edition fragrance is only $65.
Hanae Mori Butterfly Eau Fraîche is now available at Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom*, Bloomingdale’s, select Macy’s and Sephora.
*Receive a Butterfly Body Lotion (0.2 oz.) and deluxe mini Eau de Toilette (0.04 oz.) with any $65 Hanae Mori purchase – online and in-store.
