“Masochism is a valuable work trait” – Chuck Palahniuk
Today, I’ve written a 10 page paper and created my first Youtube video. Holy smokes. That was hardwork.
Anyways, have a go and I hope you enjoy it. Thought I’d share my secrets because everyone deserves to have great skin. (Fake or not – like boobs! Hahaha.)
It’s been awhile since the SF Beauty pages have been graced with a beauty-junkaholic shopping list. Honestly,nothing has really caught the watchful beauty junkie eye of mine this past week. No “gottahaveits” or “gimmedats” – I, sadly, have doled out more cash for loot at Trader Joe’s ( $5.00 Champagne and Blueberries are in season! ) than I have at any department store this month. But lo and behold, this morning has dusted me with a few exciting new additions to my bottomless caboodle and never-ending desire for more beauty rockin’ booty.
1. Urban Decay’s Stoned Poison Ring – She who does not get sparked with even the slightest bit of interest by this ring has a fashion style of capital B-oring or is nowhere near a city that boasts fashionista advocacy. How can someone not think that this is just plain gorge!? And I know, that we’ve all seen our fair share of lipgloss rings dating back from the early 90’s but, come on, Urban Decay’s Stoned Poison Ring wins the International Lipgloss Beauty Pageant hands down. It has three interchangeable lipgloss colors and comes in the cutes – cutest! – satin purple box, which makes it almost worthy for a one knee proposal. I said “almost.”
3. Sephora by OPI Nail Candy collection or “GO GIANTS!” nails.
Sephora and OPI came out with a fabulous bright, candy-inspired nail collection. Perfect for summer and all the sunnery days that we, here in San Francisco, will be enjoying in September to October. Haha!
Also, If you didn’t know that I was a huge GIANTS fan, now you do. I’ve been goin to the home games off and on, and I thought – since we’re doing pretty great with our ace pitchers – next game I was going to dawn an orange and black tiger stripes manicure. Fun, right? Here’s the tutorial, just in case you’d like to do it for your team, too or just think the tiger-stripe look is freaking cool.
Still working on a 3. – Will update soon. xoxo
Free facials, free music, and sunshine! Life is good…
Wouldn’t we rather arrive at our destination glowing, rather than washed out from a dehydrating six hour flight? On July 16, those of us headed out of San Francisco, via SFO Airport, can defy the air travel dooms and enjoy a free facial at Harmony Pharmacy by the Repechage team.
Repêchage will celebrate the opening with a special skincare event at Harmony Pharmacy and Health Center where customers will receive free skin consultations and express treatments with Repêchage licensed estheticians and meet Repêchage founder and CEO Lydia Sarfati.
What: Harmony Skincare Specialist Event
With Lydia Sarfati
When: Thursday, July 16, 2009
Where: Harmony Pharmacy & Health Center
San Francisco International Airport
Terminal 3, Boarding Area F, HUB, Location F.2.012
San Francisco, CA 94128
The fabulous thing about Repechage, aside from the luxurious seaweed-based ingredients and superior results, is that all of their assorted products are TSA-approved sizes. Which allows ladies and gents to stock up on skin care, body care, and cosmetics that will get through security, and onboard an aircraft, with no problem.
And fear not loves and lads that won’t be at the SFO this July. Still enjoy the summer from the comforts of home, cubicle, or out for a jog with a few little extra vibes and boogies from Nylon Magazine and their free Summer Playlist 2009. Which can be downloaded FOR FREE from their website (via Itunes.) Just click here. It’s 22 magnificent indie pop and rock songs from the Plastiscines, Anjulie and many more.
You’re welcome and enjoy the summer! 🙂

I’ve been in over my head thinking of the perfect name of thee blog that will coincide with my examiner.com column and was stumped a million, billion times until it hit me – Makeup and Chocolate. I couldn’t imagine a world living without either. They are my most self-indulgent, gorgeous, happy, drug-like inducing, man-made products that I constantly covet.
Will it stick? Put on the back burner like my many other domain names that I tired of all too soon? Who knows. But it is worth a shot. No one’s bought the domain name yet and if it works out well,maybe, I’ll commit. Here is the mock site
Feast your eyes and stay tuned. Looking up images for chocolate on Google felt almost like culinary porn.
