What up EM fam! It’s been a while since I’ve posted here, but if you’re around LA this Saturday here are some happenings we can hang at. Although the Keith Haring exhibit and Big City Forum look really great, there’s a Secondhand Sureshots Art Installation Opening Party (dublab) at Turntable Lab and there’s going to be a Fairfax Artwalk going on that evening too, so it should be pretty tight. Earlier in the day I’ll be djing in Los Feliz at the Steven Alan Outpost for the precious Les Morceaux accessory line. So should be fun times all around. Neato! Full info at link -> →
The Bloggomist: Three Times a Trend
When I was younger I wanted to be an actress. A full-blown Hollywood star. I’d have nice cars, a couple of houses, maybe a boat and most important of all: a closet that would be the envy of every girl from New York to New Zealand. In other words, I wanted to be an actress because of the clothes. Don’t get me wrong I had a love for acting too, →
The Bloggomist: Three Times a Trend
Weight is a tricky subject no matter which way you approach it. Everyone knows that the fashion industry is notorious for it’s promotion of the rail thin, emaciated body type. There is no secret that it has been under immense pressure for years from watch groups and current and former fashion insiders to steer away from advocating the dangerously skinny aesthetic. →
Brad and Angelina. Tom and Katie. Posh and Becks. We residents of La-la land are suckers for a dazzling dynamic duo. Luckily, Valerie Cosmetics knows how to craft a mighty fine team. Her pair of magical mascaras, Foreplay and Happy Ending, can be worn alone, but together leave you with a glam, bam, thank you m’am wink. Like any good A-List lead, Foreplay sets the tone—this time by adding length, while Happy Ending amps up the feeding frenzy with spectacularly lush lashes. The red-carpet ready look may fool the town into thinking you’re fixed on falsies, yet you won’t have to blink twice when flashbulbs ask if real. We wish we could say the same regarding the assets of all our favorite twosomes. Instead, we’ll just keep our lash-tastic eyes out for the stalkerazzi.
LBD’S. Eyeliner. Making out with reckless abandonment under the mistletoe. We all know what the season of soirees is really about. And we like it. Except when the combination of all three leads you to wake up with sex-kitten-turned-raccoon eyes. Luckily, there’s Bionova Eye Make-Up Remover which removes all traces of your smoky eye without feeling sticky. The vitamin infused remover nourishes and hydrates your skin to ensure you wake up feeling fresh-faced and clean. So even if that extra shot of eggnog means the sheets you’re under don’t look familiar, well…at least they won’t be covered in last’s night kohl. →
The last time you topically applied something from your liquor cabinet, you woke up in a stranger’s hotel room smelling of tequila (don’t worry, not judging). Luckily, Jan Marini has taken the nights you wish had never happened and put them to good use—allowing you to actually forget them. Her Age Intervention Regeneration Facial Mask is full of secret ingredients like resveratrol, a polyphenol from red wine that reduces wrinkles and has been proven to modulate genetic expression (yeah…we already knew a couple glasses of Cab could do that). →
Freelance. Babysitting. The oldest profession there is (waiting tables, of course!). Desperate times call for desperate measures. Luckily, La Bella Donna is here to make moonlighting the highlight of your day. Their mineral pigment Moonlight Highlighting Cream Colour is a multi-purpose blush that also has lip and eye shimmer listed as special skills. We recommend dabbing some on your collarbone in your off-hours to draw out even more of your inherent sparkle. Because everyone should have a chance to shine on these taxing (or, ahem, untaxed) times.
Although you don’t see it around as much, pinup art has an irreplaceable style and form of its own that has inspired many to get these sexy and beautiful girls tattooed on their body. One of the most inspirational and curvy pin-ups are those of George Petty, who was known as one of the top “cheesecake” illustrators of the 30s and 40s. He began his career with a series of cartoons featuring beautiful girls with their far from handsome beaus. →
Injections. Surgery. Fat grafts (ew!). There’s a plethora of ways to plump your lips by going under the knife. Luckily La Bella Donna has made a mighty mineral gloss to rescue you from any sharp objects. Their Baci Baci Lip Sheer adds high shine with a click of a silver pen. Sodium hyaluronate creates a barrier for lips so they condition over time and the presence of collagen aids in anti-aging. So your lips will be glossy, full, and kissable-y smooth. We’ll chalk that up to the power of the pen. In two new colors: Sweet Pea and Nude.
