BE Beverly Hills Launch Party

Last night Cid from Cid Style File and I attended the BE Beverly Hills Launch Party at the SLS Hotel Beverly Hills. Very posh! BE Beverly Hills was introducing their new Eco-luxury line. Celebrity hair stylist Frankie Payne, who styles Kim Kardashian’s gorgeous locks, was on hand. There was an open SVEDKA bar, some celebs, yummy food, free copies of Angeleno and New Beauty magazines, and delicious cupcakes. Cid and I loved our VIP gift bags which had a bottle of their BE Inspired Shine and Repair Serum with Argan Oil. Some claim it’s a miracle product, I can’t wait to try it. I’m wearing a Spense sweater dress (Ross), Assets tights (Target), and plum round toe pumps (Kohls). 

Beauty Buzz: China Glaze Holiday Collection

China Glaze has been gracing nails like yours for 13 years and now your holiday can be a little more festive with their 2010 holiday collection.

With colors like Naughty and Nice, Jolly Holly, and Little Drummer Boy, these 16 holiday shades will pretty much go with any of your party dresses. Personally, I love Ms. Claus. I’m a sucker for red and glitter.

Made with China Clay as a nail hardener and a 400 strand brush, I don’t think nail polish lovers will be disappointed. I have a bottle of the No Chip Top Coat and it’s awesome!

These little nail kits (top and right) would make a great stocking stuffer!

Don’t know what the color will look like on you? Check out their Virtual Nail Studio. You get to adjust the skin tone and nail length that closely resembles your hand. So which color will you be trying?

Dolce Vita Inspiration

Last night Cid from Cid’s Style File and I were talking about where our inspiration to blog comes from. Personally, I’m inspired by everything around me. In fact, this post is inspired by this Dolce Vita image. They sent me an email about a sale and this Tammy Printed Sweater ($220) caught my eye. How could it not? I want this sweater, but my bargainista instincts say NO! When this happens, I look for substitutions. And f course ASOS Curve has this Pattern Wrap Blanket Cardigan ($74.21) that I want. Just another reason to love them!
