Colgate Beauty Bar Golden Globes 2015

Jennie Garth looked chic as she got primped by a Priv stylist at the Colgate Optic White Beauty Bar sponsored by Naturade and Rowenta at the Selma House on Friday in LA.

Jennie Garth looked chic as she got primped by a Priv stylist at the Colgate Optic White Beauty Bar sponsored by Naturade and Rowenta at the Selma House  in LA.

Last weekend Colgate sponsored a beauty suite before the Golden Globes at Chateau Marmont’s Selma House.  Celebrities and bloggers were invited in to get glamorous with stylists from Priv , an on-demand beauty and wellness app.  The event was sponsored by Colgate and their Optic White brand.  The Optic white toothpastes and mouthwash (with brightening formula) are a good way to whiten your smile before any special event.  I was so impressed with the Colgate products and the folks from Priv.   They not only made stars like Jennie Garth look glam, but bloggers like me.  Continue reading »

This year’s Golden Globes pageant of fashion wasn’t exactly a color parade. Although Mr. Joe Zee of Yahoo Style had predicted we’d see a lot of yellow, lace and romantic styles, what we actually saw was very different.  This year’s pageant of style was full of shimmering metallics, bright reds, and thigh high slits (too high in some cases). From J Lo to Reese Witherspoon to Kate Hudson shades of cream and white dominated the evening.  Here’s what caught our eye and our eye for the cheap  & chic. Continue reading »

Prince George in a sold-out Cath Kidston sweater.

We all know that Princess Katherine, the Duchess of Cambridge or simply Kate Middleton is a trendsetter, but who knew that her son Prince George is a fashion trendsetter too? According to eBay statistics  published by Women’s Wear Daily, eBay users purchased more than 107,000 Cath Kidston pieces in the past 12 months, making the independent brand one of the most popular fashion labels on eBay. According the  Daily Mail, Prince George’s style is more popular among eBay shoppers than Kim Kardashian’s style.  That’s not a surprise to me.  Kim dresses for media impact in low cut blouses and clinging skirts, not a style most people can wear.   The adorable Prince George dresses for style & comfort.  Most babies would look adorable in his fashion choices.  If you like George’s very English style, check out the Cath Kidston sale on now and over 1,000 the listings for Cath Kidston items on eBay.
