Okay everyone, I need your help. I am gathering toiletries, gently used toys, shoes and used or new clothes for children. I will wash, box and wrap them, I just need help collecting. The items will be given to children in the community that are in dire need of the basic daily elements. I can pick them up, just let me know. Inbox me (or text me) to coordinate any pick up times. This will allow children to have some items for Christmas, but more importantly, to start off the new year. #sharelove

Jean Paul Gaultier & Coke

In April, Jean Paul Gaultier teamed up with Coke to produce possibly the most provocative Coca-Cola bottles ever known to caffeine fans world wide. The bottles are a direct salute to great design and a woman’s curves. The bottles were introduced at the Crazy Horse club, where great innovators such as Christian Louboutin, have released creativity to another level. [Image courtesy of Jean Paul Gaultier]

Chanel Makes it Quite Clear


In light of the recent Hermès scandal that was uncovered in France, the House of Chanel politely reminds all individuals that allow the name Chanel to roll off of their tongue, or leak from their ink pens (or be typed on their MacBook), that the house should only be referenced in one way: authentically. Please do not get it confused and think that it is being taken lightly. I thought it was quite clever to place this ad on the back of the Women’s Wear Daily Edition that provides front page coverage of the $22 million loss that Hermès suffered. Enough said.

Shellac vs. Gel Nail Polish

As nail color continues to appear season after season, I have been wearing polish of various colors, and I’ve found that the new generation of gel polish is the way to go for longevity.  The brand Shellac has been my choice for months until Ms.Tarrica Madison of Paint Nail and Beauty Bar in Mobile, Alabama informed me to leave the Shellac alone!  I have committed to only use gel polish (Geleration, Gellish, Orly, OPI), which infuses the nail with vitamins and supports healthy growth and lasts for weeks at a time.  

Target Does It Again

Target Brands, Inc. is known for its partnerships with top designers, chic appeal and amazing price points.  As one of the ultimate mass merchandisers, Target finds a way to marry price, quality and trendiness for the ultimate union.  E.L.F (eyes, lips, face), is one of Target’s newer product lines, a make-up line that offers a variety of beauty solutions at unbelievable prices.  Believe it or not, the caliber of the product is worth a try.  The hypershine lipgloss retails for $1, while the holiday mascara set is on the shelf for $3.  The lip gloss provides significant shine, and remains on the lips without numerous applications within a few hours.  From nail polish to eye-make up remover pads, E.L.F provides full size and miniature items that are perfect for travel and daily use.
