Jada Pinkett Smith – You Are Not Rihanna

JadaPinkett CrazyHair Jada Pinkett Smith   You Are Not Rihanna
Jada Pinkett Smith unveiled this new hairstyle (I don’t know what else to call it) at Victoria Beckham’s 34th star-studded birthday party. This Salt-N-Pepa throwback just isn’t working for me. I love me some Jada, but someone needs to point out that not everyone can pull off the edgy hair. That’s Rihanna’s schtick. I say, unless you can do it better – don’t do it at all.

It’s like being a contestant on American Idol and choosing to sing I Will Always Love You. Crackhead or not, Whitney’s got that song on lock – so don’t even go there.

Shower For The Shelter

Last month, my mom asked me to contribute to Shower for the Shelter, a drive she was organizing – to benefit a Philadelphia shelter for victims of domestic violence/abuse.

I immediately jumped at the idea, then reached out to my fellow beauty bloggers to help. Marina and Kitiya answered with a resounding “YES” and both stepped up big.

Johnson’s Baby Cologne

By the weekend, my rash had gotten so bad that I had to go back to the doc’s office. Afterwards, I took my new prescription to CVS – then browsed around the store, waiting for my Rx to be filled. While searching for the magazines, I took a wrong turn down the baby aisle…and guess what I saw? Johnson’s Baby Cologne. Yes, you heard me right. Baby cologne.

Here’s the 411 on this shameful new product:

babycologne Johnsons Baby CologneJohnson’s Baby Cologne has a gentle, fresh fragrance with a pleasant combination of floral and citrus hints. It leaves your baby smelling clean and fresh. This clinically proven mild formula is alcohol free, making it just right for your baby’s delicate skin.

What is this world coming to? What kind of parent is thinking, “Damn, my baby really reeks. Maybe Johnson’s is onto something with this baby cologne!”

I actually smelled this stuff, and it’s truly awful. Don’t get me wrong – I do not condone spritzing cologne on infants. But if your target consumer is still in diapers, wouldn’t powdery notes be more appropriate than floral and citrus scents?

I think that if any parent attempts to purchase Johnson’s Baby Cologne, they should be met at the register by Child Protective Services. Just a thought.
