In a nutshell, I spent New Year’s Eve at dinner with my brothers at DISH, then some time with my best friend, and danced the night away with Jonathan Tyler and the Northern Lights at the Granada. Read the rest of this entry »

Chanel has an uncanny ability to produce the most unique and eye-catching colors that not only make men fawn, but also spur nail polish lovers into a fingernail frenzy. This past Cruise Collection 2010/2011 season in St. Tropez, Karl Lagerfeld sent Bardot-esque babes with down the runway with Riva, the palest of pastels which looks literally like a breath of fresh air. The newest nail craze will set to begin when Riva drops into CHANEL stores for a limited time on December 1st, 2010 for $25.
The pure and natural baby aqua blue shade with micro-shimmer is a welcomed change from all the sheer pinks. Peter Philips, Global Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup, wanted to create a playful collection that flirts with the sun: “a sprinkle of sand clinging to golden skin, a little pout under a straw hat, ready to break into a childish laugh”. The Côte d’azur Collection takes inspiration from summertime on the Riviera back in the 70s where “luxury indulges in nonchalance under the saint tropez sun.”
Carefree elegance with effortless free spirit beauty is what the Chanel Riva Vernis evokes. If you fell in love with Nouvelle Vague earlier in the year, don’t worry this shade is a delicate, oceanic hue with a world of difference.

Dallas is known for our bevy of blondes, yet we’re always welcoming new additions to town like Victoria’s Secret beauties: Candice Swanepole and Erin Heatherton. The lithe supermodels visited Northpark Mall to promote the debut of Victoria’s Secret new fragrance, Bombshell, an aromatic and flirtatious mix of fruity and floral notes. Dallas composed the last stop on their four-city media tour made of Los Angeles, New York, and Miami.
To celebrate the launch, the Northpark store was decked out in a plethora of their signature Victoria’s Secret pink stripes and ever-so-matching peonies that accented the BOMBSHELL fragrance. DJ Locklear spun some top beats to amp up the crowd while onlookers watched the VS Makeup Supermodel Artist Team do their makeover magic on attendees. Shoppers that indulged in VS purchases over $40 received special BOMBSHELL t-shirts and the opportunity to meet-and-greet autograph session with the VS Angels: Candice and Erin. To really encompass the whole supermodel BOMBSHELL experience, a famed fashion photographer was also on-hand snapping cover portraits of guests for their own keepsake photo. The energy and enthusiasm of all the attendees, employees, and Angels was truly electrifying and contagious. Ten lucky winners were brimming with excitement for their personalized Angel experience, one of which could not stop squealing with schoolgirl excitement. I must say, I do indeed I have a major girl crush on both Candice and Erin after the opportunity of meeting and interviewing the both of them.
BOMBSHELL is described as a fruity, floral and aromatic fragrance collection includes notes purple passion fruit, Moscato d’Asti Tuscan grapes, Shangri-la yellow peonies and Vanilla Orchid that combine with the stunning aroma of Italian Sunstruck Pine for a sexy, glamorous and ultra-feminine scent. The collection includes Eau De Parfum, Body Mist, Body Lotion and Luminous Body Powder ($20-$45), available now at Victoria’s Secret stores nationwide and online at VictoriasSecret.com.
Upon review of the new scent, BOMBSHELL reminds me of many limited edition Escada fragrances I had fallen in love with over the years (i.e. Sexy Grafitti, Sentiment, Tropical Punch). Reminiscent of all my past favorites, this scent is cleaner, yet with a complexity from the Italian Pine note. The fragrance wears down well with my chemistry and has long-lasting wear to my surprise. If you’re in search of florals and bouquets with a touch of fruitiness that wears down to a sexy earthiness with an all around fresh and clean smell, then BOMBSHELL is right on the money. Head to your closest Victoria’s Secret and give it a spritz, channel your inner bombshell babe, and report back!

Whenever I think of Chanel nail polishes, I imagine a little Chanel mad scientist mixing up colors for upcoming seasons and the Wicked Witch of the West, maniacally laughing and thinking, “Oh I’ll get you my pretties.” Oh you got me alright, completely hooked on these neutral nails for Fall and as if my Chanel obsession wasn’t bad enough already.
Anyways, how drool worthy are Khaki Rose and Khaki Vert? As with all coveted Chanel polishes, these are limited edition in honor of Fashion Night Out and will be available at Chanel boutiques and chanel.com starting September 10th. Hopefully I can get my paws on these before then ’cause you know these babies won’t last long at the counters.
