On Wednesdays We Wear Pink-packaged Body Souffle

This post is sponsored by Avon, but all opinions herein are my own.If this lacy-racy jar of skin-smoothing softly scented MADNESS isn't EXACTLY what Will & Grace's Karen Walker would wear when she's masquerading about town as Anastasia Beaverhausen, then I don't know what is. It's a fruity scent with the gravitas of sultry amber that evokes all the cunning sexiness of this fictional character's channeling of her very own fictional character. Too much? Well, so is Anastasia Beaverhausen. Behold: Karen Continue Reading [...]

Avon Beaded Escape Toe Loop Sandal

This post is sponsored by Avon, but all opinions herein are my own. Guys. Are we watching Netflix original Orange Is The New Black? It's everything. I binge-watched this weekend when I was desperately due for a people cleanse. I watched all 13 episodes in a row from 11am to 1am. I'm not proud of this behavior. The show is two parts Shawshank Redemption, one part Just The Ten Of Us, one part The L Word and one part Friends.  There was a moment when I wanted to reach into my screen and help Continue Reading [...]

Avon Mega Lash Mascara Review

This post is sponsored by Avon, but all opinions here in are my own. For real, guys. Mascara brush technology has evolved to a point where you can just imagine a casual time traveler from the '80s arriving in 2013 and being like, WHAT IS THIS? when you pulled out your mascara wand. Much like Jenna Marbles' curious dog Kermit says about everything in this video. Excuse his dog grammar, of course, as he hasn't yet mastered subject-verb agreement. Before you start stuffing your head into its wild Continue Reading [...]

Eff Off, AARP. Slash Pass The Avon.

This post is sponsored by Avon, but all opinons are my own. Yesterday was not the best. Some of its gems include: I was at an event yesterday thrown by my friend Yuli (whose wedding I'm attending in Greece next week--YAY for that) and was talking about the festivities when her business partner came over and started asking me all about my impending nuptials... because somehow he'd misheard that we were talking about YULI'S wedding. Whom he works with every day. Did I mention that my birthday is Continue Reading [...]
