Sunday Splurge: Mason Pearson Hairbrush

I know it may seem excessive to put a hairbrush that could cost up to $190.00 (of course the one I want only costs $170.00) on your holiday wish list, but does soft, silky hair really have a price?  All blowout-crazy beauty junkies know Mason Pearson brushes are the gold standard of hair tools, lauded by celeb stylists, […]

Sunday Splurge: Eve Lom Travel Essentials

With the holiday season in full swing, I’ve decided to dedicate the rest of my Sunday Splurge posts until Christmas to the art of gluttonous gift-giving (or getting).  These items you will read about in the coming weeks all have two things in common — 1) I don’t own them 2) I would like to […]

Sunday Splurge: Bobbi Brown Party Collection Travel Kit

With the holiday season in full swing, I’ve decided to dedicate the rest of my Sunday Splurge posts until Christmas to the art of gluttonous gift-giving (or getting).  These items you will read about in the coming weeks all have two things in common — 1) I don’t own them 2) I would like to […]

Sunday Splurge: Tarte The Starlet Limited Edition Makeup Vanity

I chose the Tarte The Starlet Limited Edition Makeup Vanity as my Sunday Splurge, not because it’s expensive (actually the opposite; $52 for $505 worth of makeup), but because buying it for yourself (and not a gift) is a “splurge”.  It’s not like I am running low on eye shadow.  Plus, I know I won’t use the […]

Sunday Splurge: Gift-with-Purchase MANIA!

 If you read my Sunday Splurge last week, you know I’m a whore for free samples, especially deluxe samples.  Every year, the only thing that takes away my sorrow of Halloween being over is the new Gift with Purchase (GwP) offers from all my favorite sites for the holidays. Pathetic? Perhaps. I’m the first to admit it. […]

Sunday Splurge: Bloom.com

When I read about Bloom.com on GWP Addict (which is a URL that should be on every beauty addict’s favorites) I felt like one of the kids on the Wonka factory tour, seeing the Chocolate Room for the first time.  Someone queue the music: This is a new beauty shopping web site, they call themselves a “Social Beauty Store.” […]

Sunday Splurge: SK-II Facial Treatment Mask

In honor of Halloween, I thought I would give you the SK-II Facial Treatment Mask for my Sunday Splurge.  Not only does the mask make me look like Jason from Friday the 13th, but I actually need it after having a decadent Halloween party last night when I consumed a few too many glasses of witches brew. For a mask, it’s […]

Sunday Splurge: Shu Uemura Essence Absolue Hair Oil

I need to write this quickly since my husband is currently waiting for the Chelsea vs. Queenspark Rangers soccer game to begin and I want to be ready to publish as soon as it does. I didn’t want to have to wait until American football starts to get you your Sunday Splurge, and since the […]

Sunday Splurge: Amore Pacific Time Response Skin Renewal Foundation SPF 18

I figure it makes the most sense to share my splurges with you on Sundays since the chances of my husband tearing himself away from football to read this are about as good as La Mer  going on sale. So for my inaugural Sunday Splurge post I am sharing Amore Pacific Time Response Skin Renewal Foundation SPF 18 ($90) because […]

3 Most Coveted Beauty Products Sent By Publicists

We all know I’m spoiled… I get tons of products sent to me by publicists for consideration.  I test them all — hating some, liking others, and coveting a select few. When I say “covet” we’re talking about products that will permanently become part of my personal regimen and be re-bought again and again. People […]
