This weekend, grab your girlfriends and go see The Best Man Holiday – which hits theaters today.
On Tuesday, I attended a screening with Mama Spoiled Pretty and her BFF, Estelle – and we had so much fun. We laughed hard and cried harder (this rom-com is also a tearjerker - so bring some tissues). In fact, I got so CONTINUE READING

As you probably know, I am a marketing professional by day, a beauty blogger by night and a mom/wife 24/7. But what you may not know is that, after graduating from college, I attended law school. Ultimately, I chose a different path - which makes me much happier. What doesn't make me happy, however, are the school loans I've CONTINUE READING

Just had to share that I made a killing this week at Ann Taylor, and you can too!
Right now, all sale merchandise at Ann Taylor is 25% off. Then, if you use the Friends & Family coupon in-store (or use the promo code FRIENDS) online, you get an extra 30% off.
Yesterday, I went to my local Ann Taylor store and spent way too much money. But considering how much I saved ($160) and how cute my future outfits are gonna be (super cute), I’m feeling pretty proud of myself. Then, today, I went to the Ann Taylor website to see what else I could snatch up – and I really lucked out. I picked up six of these v-neck long sleeved tees (originally $28 each) in a myriad of shades and guess how much I ended up paying after the discounts?
Can you believe it? Six tops for $37…and that includes the $9.99 shipping charge.
Damn, I’m good.
PS – the Friends & Family discount also applies at LOFT.

Help me, Mario. I have super dry skin and no matter what I do or how much moisturizer I use, my skin always looks flaky when I wear foundation. What am I doing wrong? If anyone can help me, I know it’s you!
Flaky skin can be a result of a skin condition such as eczema. If you haven’t already done so, please have your skin checked by a dermatologist to determine what the problem is – if any – and the appropriate treatment you may need.
I find that with very dry skin, it’s good to use a tinted moisturizer. Stay away from setting powders which will absorb all the skin’s moisture and bring attention to flaky, dry areas.
Okay, okay. I realize that I’m on a wallet kick lately. Even though I already bought an uber cute leopard print Felix Rey wallet, I just couldn’t resist this one from Urban Expressions that I discovered at my local DSW. For only about $20, I picked up a dead ringer for the $395 Be & D Garbo Stud Wallet (seen below)!
Last month, I bought this Felix Rey leopard print wallet at Gilt.com. I was gonna tell you…but by the time it arrived and I fell truly, madly and deeply in love with my new purchase, the sale was already over and the wallet was no longer available.
But now the Felix Rey Bow Pochette Wallet is back up for grabs. It’s currently on sale at HauteLook.com for 60% off!
Snatch it up, and act fast. Your cute wallet window of opportunity ends at 7pm ET today!
When it comes to taking off my makeup, well, I’d rather leave it on. By bedtime, I’m usually so exhausted that I’d rather sleep in whatever makeup I put on that day (and risk the inevitable breakouts) than wash my face. Luckily, some genius (who’s also probably a fellow lazy gal) invented makeup remover wipes. And the wipes that I’m currently digging are from Noxzema.
Back in junior high, I begged Mama Spoiled Pretty to buy me a tub of their Original Deep Cleansing Cream, hoping it would give me flawless skin (and my pick of hot boyfriends) like Rebecca Gayheart. After weeks of telling me no, my mom finally relented during a trip to Drug Emporium (does anyone else remember this store?). I remember how impatient I was on the ride home – I couldn’t wait to try it out and see how it compared to the boring ole bar of Cetaphil that my dermatologist had recommended.
Fast forward 17 or so years (I’m showin’ my age now) and I’m back on the Noxzema bandwagon. The Clean Moisture Makeup Removal Cloths are, basically, Noxzema’s Original Deep Cleansing Cream in wipe form. The pre-moistened wipes remove dirt, oil, and makeup so effectively, you really only need one for your entire face.
The Clean Moisture Makeup Removal Cloths have the same smell and tingle as the Original Deep Cleansing Cream, so I was initially hesitant about using them around my eyes. But as it turns out, even when I used the wipes to remove stubborn mascara, I experienced no waterworks whatsoever. Personally, I could do without the menthol-y fragrance (I get that it’s kind of Noxzema’s signature thang), but it’s not a deal-breaker for me.
What I like most about Clean Moisture Makeup Removal Cloths is how my skin feels after I’m done using one. My face doesn’t feel tight and stripped – and it doesn’t feel like there’s still sticky residue sitting on my skin…there’s just a nice, clean feeling.
Noxzema Clean Moisture Makeup Removal Cloths ($4.50) are available at mass market retailers nationwide.
