Beauty Buzz: Overnight Celebrity
Written by: WhyDid | Beauty Buzz

kirsten smith smittyAs women of the twenty first century, our responsibilities span far beyond those of merely managing a manor or being ladies in waiting sausaged in organ crushing corsets and starched petticoats on our front porches, sweet tea in delicate gloved hands.  We hold down high powered jobs, raise families, nurture romantic and platonic friendships, lead fruitful social lives and are expected to do so all while keeping up with societal (and sometimes completely unrealistic) beauty standards.  We barely have enough time to squeeze in a workout before fighting our way through our monotonous morning commutes, let alone pamper ourselves the way we definitely deserve having survived a 55 hour work week, complete with tyrant boss and tuna fish eating cube mate.  Since we are so great at multitasking all day long, why wouldn’t we craft up clever ways to put our beauty products to work while we cash in on those six holy hours of sleep before that dreaded alarm sounds and we do it all over again?  Along with slathering my eyelashes and lips with Aquaphor before bed every night (except when I’ve slipped into a wine induced coma), I also have discovered a slew of products designed specifically for all of us sleeping beauties.  And wouldn’t you know?  Sleep happens to be the perfect time to refresh, rehydrate, and recharge both inside and out.

Smart Is the New Pretty: It’s Getting Hairy

cat bad hair dayI love animals.  I could spend hours upon hours watching cute animal videos on YouTube.  I have even been told that I should probably just be dropped off at a farm or petting zoo and stay there.  And if Fido shared my love for Fendi, I’d say that’s probably true.

It’s a hairy scary world out there.

Beauty Buzz: I Don’t Want No Scrub
Written by: WhyDid | Beauty Buzz

Now that it’s 2012, let’s go ahead and slough off all of what’s left of 2011.  Winter weather has a tendency to wreak havoc on our delicate dermis. At some point during the darkest (and coldest) season of the year, you will come to the realization that moisturizer just isn’t going to cut it.  Rather than go on looking like the alligator from a Lubriderm commercial, why not rid yourself of those frisky skin flakes?  Take matters (literally) into your own hands by exfoliating everything from your face to your feet.  Here are a few of my favorites to get you off to a smooth start:

1.Bliss Super Slough Scrub, $34, 2. StriVectin Instant Retexturizing Scrub, $29, 3. Fresh Brown Sugar Lip Polish, $22.50, 4. Deborah Lippmann Soul Mission Grapefruit Foot Scrub, $38, 5. Homedics Massaging Shower Loofah, $9.99

Don’t forget to moisturize your newfound glow with a thick nourishing moisturizer.  Don’t you look fresh?

Gift Guide: Beauty Buff
Written by: WhyDid | Gift Guide

I don’t know a girl who doesn’t love receiving something not only beautiful, but also beautifying.  While we’ve outgrown the ol’ Bath & Body Works gift sets, it’s still wonderful to give (and receive!) the gift of beauty.  I could have listed a hundred products that would make more than stellar gifts, but I have whittled it down to ten as to not overwhelm you.  Maybe these gifts didn’t tickle your fancy, but they did get you thinking about buying someone special something from the beauty department.  Here are a few tips to keep in mind while shopping:

  1. Don’t give something offensive like a waxing kit (even if she does have a hairy upper lip).
  2. Perfume is way too personal (unless recipient has told you EXACTLY which fragrance she’s wishing for).
  3.  When in doubt, go for something with lots of options, like a kit where she can mix and match to make the perfect shade.

1. Bliss Glow Ho Ho Gift Set, $75, 2. Fresh Sake Ritual Bath Set, $95, 3. Laura Mercier Creme Brulee Trio, $60, 4. Philosophy Holiday Bundle Ornament Set, $15, 5. NARS Kudoki Kabuki Lip Set, $125, 6.  Urban Decay 24/7 Travel Size Pencil Set, $32, 7. Red Carpet Manicure Starter Kit with Portable Light, $59.99, 8. NARS Kuroko Kabuki Mini Nail Polish Coffret, $359. Benefit I’m Glam Therefore I Am Gift Set, $36, 10. Estee Lauder Good Fortune Compact, $125

Why Don’t You Take a Vacation?
Written by: WhyDid | Beauty Buzz

I know that last weekend was Memorial Day, but come on.  The weather hasn’t gotten nearly nice enough here in the Bay to even sorta kinda feel like summer. Hell, I had on a sweater yesterday!  As I longingly look at snapshots on Facebook of friends by the beach and pan through emails from Gilt JetSetter, I mentally transport myself to a chaise lounge chair in Honolulu (sipping a mai tai, of course).  I can hear the waves, feel the sun, and even smell the suntan lotion on my sunkissed skin- can you feel it?  Then I hear that oh so familiar email “ding” and am brought right back to reality.  Oh, that’s right.  I’m in an office.  wearing glasses and not the sun protective type.

Well, until I get a little time to hop a flight to Hawaii, I’ve come up with a temporary mood boosting, mind tricking fix.  I’m going to smell like vacation.  That’s right.  Don’t underestimate the power of scent.  Slathering on a few of these products in the morning can transport you from even the dreariest climate to your dream destination.  Hey… it’s cheaper than a vacation.

1. St. Ives Naturally Indulgent Advanced Body Moisturizer, $5.49 2. Organix Nourishing Coconut Milk Shampoo, $6.99, 3. Escada Taj Sunset Eau de Toilette, $55, 4. Beach Sexy Tan Enhancing Shimmer Lotion with Tint, $12, 5. Bliss Blood Orange + White Pepper Sugar Scrub, $36, 6. Philosophy Melon Daiquiri Lip Shine, $10

Bon voyage!
