Congrats, Ferosch!

In my haste, I totes forgot to mention how excited I am that my fave reality TV show character EVER won this season’s Project Runway competition! Even though I actually wasn’t too impressed with his final collection (I thought Rami’s was way better), I still think he thoroughly deserved the win as he consistently wowed me in every single other competition. Christian, you’re FIERCE, babe.


$10 Jaqua Products!

Daneen over at Spoiled Pretty is one of my favorite fellow Philadelphians. (Did you enjoy that alliteration as much as I did?)

Per Daneen:
* The amazing Pink Palace Kit (regularly $39.50) is only $10!
* The brand spanking new Pink Champagne Guilt-Free Kit (regularly $30) is just $10.
* The Body Butter Trio and Shower Crème Trio (regularly $24) are $10!

Who’s the Resident Botoxer on the Island?

Because I can’t imagine how Harper’s managed to have so much work done. Explain that mystery to me, Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse.

Other than the phantom Botox, last night’s LOST episode was PHENOM. It was one of my favorites of the season. First: I love the title’s quadruple entendre:
It references that fact that Juliet is:
1. “The other woman” whom Goodwin is seeing;
2. “The other woman” aside from Kate, whom Jack has feelings for;
3. A woman who was one of the Others; and
4. “The other woman” for Ben, referencing the woman whom she looks just like (Harper says to her, “You look just like her.” I’m thinking maybe this refers to Annie?)

Nobody Puts YOU in a Corner When You Wear La Mer The SPF 18 Fluid Tint

Did you hear the sad news about Patrick Swayze? He was just diagnosed with cancer and may only have weeks to live. How awful, right?

In his honor, I think it’s only right to recommend a product that gives you a “That was the summer we went to Kellerman’s” glow while shielding your skin from damaging rays. La Mer SPF 18 Fluid Tint $65 captures beneficial light while diverting potentially damaging light. It brings a touch of color to the skin for a smooth, even finish. I’ve been using it over a light moisturizer and it actually provides coverage as well. If you need light-to-medium coverage, I totes recommend it.
