My Night as a COVERGIRL

COVERGIRL encompasses beauty and glamour on the inside and out! And as they celebrate their 50th Anniversary, they want you to know that “Every woman is a COVERGIRL!”I found out exactly what it means to be a true COVERGIRL. All thanks to an exclusive invite to their star studded 50th Anniversary party at BOA in Los Angeles! And there’s no better way to get red carpet ready, other than an exclusive “primping party” at The London hotel.With a glass of champagne in hand, Besma from Frederic Fekkai Salon styled my hair with products from the Fekkai luxury product line. She…

Beauty Buzz: Beach Tousled Waves

Do you want those beach tousled waves without going to the beach? This is one of my favorite hairstyles. It’s a simple style and it’s the classic “California Girl” look. There are even products out there specifically made for “beach waves.” Doesn’t Jessica Simpson look lovely?I found this easy tutorial on eHow:Step 1 Wash and condition hair – don’t over condition! Step 2 Apply hair product, such as Frederick Fekkai Summer Hair Beach Waves all over hair. Blow dry hair using fingers only, scrunching as your dry.Step 3 If you need extra curl, take a medium barrel curling iron and…

Celeb Beauty: Christina Hendricks

Stunner Alert!!Look at the gorgeous Christina Hendricks as she’s featured in the recent Los Angeles Times Magazine.We don’t get to see her glorious curves, but we do get a peek at these five retro glam beauty looks. Here’s a little peek from the interview.As a woman, I have to say the retro underwear on Mad Men actresses looks like utter torture. Am I wrong?No, you’re not wrong. We’re so used to it now, but those undergarments really aren’t made for relaxing. If I get my entire costume on, and I have to wait a few hours for my next scene,…

Daring Fashionistas: Beth Ditto

There’s nothing I love more than a daring fashionista! One who doesn’t care about the so-called “rules of fashion.” That’s why I admire Beth Ditto from the indie rock band Gossip! She wears what she wants and she kills it every time! Here are a couple of pics from events held in the last few months. I am head-over-heels for the black and white striped dress! I want it!

Alicia and Kryptonite

After seeing these pics of the gorgeous Alicia Keys, I started yearning for a hot pair of sunglasses. Not just any sunglasses, but a pair of square-ish shaped sunglasses. I don’t know what it is about me and this awesomely amazing accessory! This is the one item, that I don’t mind $pending money on. The pair of Coach sunglasses I have now are almost 3 years old. And they are still in great shape. I love them! I guess you can say that sunglasses are my kryptonite. Now, if only I can figure out what brand Alicia is wearing and…

Go Short?

Looks like Hollywood got the short-hair memo. I might follow. With summer right around the corner, I am definitely considering a major hair chop-off. I’ve had my hair short before. So, it wouldn’t be anything too drastic for me. But, I’m trying to decide which short hair style to go with. The hubby isn’t too happy about this, he loves my hair long. I tell him it’s only hair, it’ll grow back.Are you loving the short hair trend?

Brighten it Up!

These lovely ladies have definitely inspired me to get some color back into my wardrobe! Jessica Simpson and Gabourey Sidibe simply glowed at the TIME/CNN/People/Fortune 2010 White House Correspondents’ Dinner Pre-Party. While Christina Ricci made me green with envy at Chopard Celebrates 150 Years Of Excellence party. But, you’re not going to find me running around L.A. in a cocktail dress or fancy gown. Sorry. I’m going to stay closer to my price range…like Old Navy! One of my favorite stores to shop at. Here are three spring/summer alternatives, all under $40! And if the weather gets chilly, throw on…

The $30,000 Jimmy Choo “Blythe” handbag!!!!Yes, you read that right. Well, according to JustJared.com, it is. And they’re pretty reliable.I know she’s a millionaire and I know she can buy whatever crocodile handbag her little heart desires.But, seriously? What the…?
