In My Beauty Bag. Burt's Bees Coconut Foot Creme

Many of us grew up using vaseline to combat dry skin and to keep our feet from looking like we just ran through a field dusted in flour.
I discovered Burt's Bees Coconut Foot Creme a few years ago after reading about it in a magazine. I love just about anything with coconut, so I was instantly intrigued. After purchase, I took it with me to the nail salon for a pedicure appointment and was hooked. When not having my feet done, I put it on after a shower, bath or when needed.
Apply the the foot creme after a relaxing bath at night and slip on a pair of white socks to sleep in. It's not sexy but you really see results over time in conquering dry and cracked heels.

Chanel Sparkles. Spring Summer 2011 Haute Couture

I absolutely adore this collection. Classic silhouettes in black and white with just enough beads and sparkle really give this Chanel collection an unexpected bit of flair.  I'll be having the black sequined pants recreated.

Notes. About Nails

Style. Miu Miu Leopard Clutch

Miu Miu

I'm a fan of small purses. Animal print remains a classic staple in style.

Jeffrey Williams Has The Ultimate Collection.

Congratulations to the uniquely voiced Jeffrey Williams who triumphed over Calvin Tran and Dominique Pearl David to win Bravo's "The Fashion Show - The Ultimate Collection". I really liked something about each designer's finale presentations.  The rude, brash and unlikeable Calvin's black asymmetrical pared down runway show was his best. I wanted the first dress he sent out.
Jeffrey's collection had many pieces I'd wear as well, especially his winning beautifully draped red goddess gown. It was waterworks for me along with him as he spoke lovingly of his mother who'd passed away from cancer and of his desire to dedicate the collection to her.
Each designer succeeded in presenting cohesive fashion forward collections, though I felt Williams' was indeed the ultimate.

"Project Runway" should pay attention because it seems "The Fashion Show" has raised the bar.

Beautiful Brushes.

Keep your brushes and puffs clean and fresh, your skin will appreciate it.  I generally add a small cap of fabric softener to a mild unscented detergent or brush cleaner.
