Fun Read...

Author, Gisele Scanlon, has compiled her favorite goddess-worthy tips from her very own personal adventures, as well as, encounters with your favorite designers and fashion mavens into the hot pink and black velvet covered book, THE GODDESS GUIDE.

THE GODDESS GUIDE covers topics from "Style" to "Travel" to "Joie de Vivre." Inside these deliciously bound pages are tips like what underwear you can wear without worrying about icky panty-lines, what clothes to pack if you're headed to Paris, and how to keep your home spick and span in style. Gisele has even included interview questions and answers with your faves, like Christian Louboutin and Laura Mercier, who answer questions like "So, what's the secret to finding the perfect foundation?"

Breakfast at Tiffany's anyone...

This was an absolute "Must" post or me...It seems as though anaml company, China Glaze, has produced a Limited Edition Tiffany hued nail polish called, For Audrey... This color will definitely hit my toes this weekend!

Destination Space...

The UK based Space.NK Apothecary has opened a store on Greene Street in Soho.

Kelly Clarkson looks amazing on the cover of Elle's July issue...

Exclusively at Saks...dVb...

Looks like The Beckhams are taking over Saks for the time being via Victoria Beckham's new clothing and accessory line...

The label, dVb, currently features both denim and sunglasses collections, and the pieces were actually cute.
For now, they are exclusively at Saks...


Calling all Fashionista's!!!
Girls, hold onto your Credit Cards because as of July 1st all city sales tax on clothing and shoes has been ELIMINATED.

The law goes into effect on July 1, which is fifteen days away.
So, be patient and those Christian Louboutin's that you've been salivating over will no longer have that hefty sales tax attached....

Tried & True..

Hey Ladies,

If you are looking for a mascara that will lengthen your lashes and add volume then this is it. I Love, love, love this Mascara by Too-Faced...It's called Lash Injection...I use this mascara everyday and it doesn't give me a raccoon look at the end of the night and washes off perfectly without you having to scrub your eyelids

Lash Injection/Too-Faced
Available at Sephora & Macy's - $19.50

Tocca's new scent designed after there cream moisturizer smells heavenly with the fresh scent of grapefruit and cucumber. It's called Cleopatra...It you can't wait for next season's Tocca Sample Sale then hit up Sephora now!

Beauty is in its lunar phase...

I recently had the opportunity to check out Mac's new line of limited-edition colors called Moonbathe. The colors are vibrant with Pale, phosphorescent Eye Shadows, Glimmershimmers of white gold, Lipsticks and Lipglass of rich lunar metal, blazing golden peaches and radiant pearled plums.
I tried the following colors in the shadows and lipglass and they are sure fire winners...
Eye Shadow-Cosmic & Firespot

Dresses and coats and bags, oh my!

While shopping in Soho, I wandered into the Bloomie's on Broadway and stumbled upon the Tracy Reese Spring 2007 Handbag Line. I can't say that all the bags were hits but this is one of my favorites. The Cecily Flap Satchel kinda has a lot going on with this bag but somehow it still looks clean and sleek. This fully lined-satchel has goldtone hardware everywhere, including the protective feet. The only thing that detracts from the beauty of this bag is the somewhat clunky hardware on the turn-lock closure but other than that , it's a winner.

And the nominees are...

I have to say that Smartwater ranks up there in my top three of favorite bottled water now they've added one of my favorite's to be the face of the Brand. Jennifer Aniston will now be the spokesperson for Smartwater and has even co-created a limited-edition Smartwater label for the bottles associated with her campaign.
