Winter Woes, WWD, and Me








Hi girls,
Fab news! In today's Women's Wear Daily, "Shake Your Beauty" is listed as one of their Top Ten Beauty Blogs! Isn't this exciting? Seriously, I owe it all to my faithful SYB Babes...as well as Matthew Evans and Michelle Edgar from WWD (drinks after Fashion Week?). And a heart-felt gracias to Lady Miss Julia Coney of "All About the Pretty" for citing me as her beauty influence (how darling is that?). Sigh. Today's a good day. I'd like to thank the Academy, my dog, and my mom, for instilling in me a passionate penchant for blush.













So, yesterday morning I went to the annual Bendels' Beauty Breakfast. This swanky event is a years-old tradition in the beauty industry, where editors--and now bloggers--learn all about the venerable boutique's new beauty offerings (and stuff oodles of samples in their shopping bags). Oh, the goods were endless. But I was particularly fascinated by the following two yummies:


1.) Laura Mercier Corner Faux Lashes ($18): These terribly delicate, easy-to-apply lashes are meant to be worn at the outer corner of each eye, which creates that sultry, swoony cat-eye effect. I love that they come with their own tiny tube of invisible lash glue, and if you carefully store the lashes back in the box, you can wear them again and again! I've said this before and I'll say it again--a good lash instantly makes EVERYONE look a zillion times better. Even the most looks-challenged. Give Dick Cheney a lash and see what happens.


2.) BeautyRehab Rose Salve ($12): This British import knocked my socks off (and I'm not alone--apparently, UK mayjas like Posh & Becks, Sophie Dahl and, oddly enough, Masi Oka, are obsessed with this stuff). Basically, it's a portable winter cure-all that you MUST keep in your bag at all times. The rose oil and shea butter-infused balm smooths chapped lips; softens cuticles; hydrates dry hands and elbows; tames split ends; and moisturizes flaky, flu-ravaged nostrils (how I loathe that word). And it's so much more glamorous than Vaseline! Veddy, veddy good.

Congrats, and feel better! You're definitely an inspiration to me as an African American woman in a business where women like us are so scarce. When I first started pursuing this field, I thought I'd be the only one, but I'm glad to be a part of a blog where there are so many fabulous beauty mavens who share the same passion as me!
