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 was awesome! I had the chance to chat with a fellow bloggers and enjoy the amazing view from the suite’s patio; all while hosting my first ever Twitter Party!

I made my way over to the amazing make up artist Toby Fleischman. Not only was she crazy talented, she was so nice! She used the new NatureLuxe Silk Foundation, COVERGIRL and Olay Simply Ageless Corrector, COVERGIRL and Olay Simply Ageless Sculpting Blush, LashBlast Fusion Mascara, Eye Enhancers 1-Kit Shadow, and new COVERGIRL Lip Perfection Lipstick on me. I was in love with my look of the night! I honestly didn’t even feel like I was wearing makeup. It was all so light, but it had great coverage and the lipstick was “perfection.”

After the “primping” was over, we made our way to BOA for the party! I was nervous! It was my first red carpet and I don’t think I’ve ever been around so many celebrities. The venue was stunning and the free Godiva chocolate didn’t hurt. Neither did getting greeted at the door with a glass of champagne!

Celebrities on hand were Queen Latifah, Dania Ramirez, Drew Barrymore, Ellen DeGeneres, Taylor Swift, Selena Gonzalez, Mario Lopez, Sofia Vergara, Amber Riley, Ana de la Reguera, Cory Monteith, Kendra Wilkinson, Lauren Conrad, Niki Taylor, Portia De Rossi, Rachel Hunter, Sam Ronson, Sophia Bush, and Whitney Port…to name a few. I even bumped into a few celebs unknowingly.

I definitely felt like a true COVERGIRL!

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 curl only the top of hair, starting mid-shaft.

Step 4 Flip hair upside down and toss hair with fingers to loosen curls. Spray a fine layer of hairspray and flip back. Use fingers to “tame” down any wild strands. Beautiful!

    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, I have to learn how to position myself, otherwise the boning presses into my guts! It can really hurt those internal organs! I have this little war wound—a blister from wearing a garter the other day for 17 hours.

    Look at Glee’s Amber Riley! She’s way too cute.
    And don’t get me started on this red Dalia MacPhee gown, it has left me speechless!!
    Out of all the looks, I really love her with the bangs. I especially love the fact that she doesn’t over accessorize.

    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

    Radio 1's Big Weekend - Day 1

    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 I’ll be a happy camper. Oh…FYI…I want all of these pairs below!

    What is the one thing you don’t mind spending money on?

    I have always been a fan of Queen Latifah…so I’m wondering…Why haven’t I taken my butt to see “Just Wright” yet? Man! I’m so slow when it comes to movies.

    These movie stills continue to prove how curvalicious the Queen is and always will be!

    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!

    TIME/CNN/People/Fortune 2010 White House Correspondents' Dinner Pre-Party


    Chopard Celebrates 150 Years Of Excellence - Arrivals

    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 a cardigan or wrap. Simple, easy, and cheap.


    Kate & Louis Vuitton

    Killer Inside Me Hits NYC

    Wowza!!
    Love Love Love this Louis Vuitton poncho that Kate Hudson is wearing! She wore it to the Killer Inside Me premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, over her Louis Vuitton dress. Oh, the tedious lives celebrities live…….{I’m being sarcastic btw!}

    Celeb Curves: Beyonce & Christina

    Look at these lovely ladies!! Beyonce and Christina Hendricks! So gorgeous!

    Of course I was reading my daily dose of JustJared.com and I saw this pic of Beyonce! She looks fab and she is rockin’ Alexander McQueen Cuffed Lace-Up Ankle Boots ($1,085)!! Are you loving them?


    Here you have Christina gracing the current cover of Esquire…too beautiful!

    What the…?

    I have loved Madonna, ever since I can remember.

    Here she is with her daughter Lourdes…OH! What is that she’s carrying in her right hand? A handbag? A Jimmy Choo handbag? 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…? I am sitting here trying to convince myself that maybe it was given to her as a gift. But, after doing some research, I found out these handbags were a limited edition line and only 12 samples were available in the U.S.

    Guess when you’re a worldwide pop star…price is not an issue!
