Ahhh...The Mediterranean.

I am so jealous of my mother. I just picked her up from the airport, where she was coming back from a 10 day  Mediterranean Cruise. Can you imagine, basking in the beauty of the Mediterranean for over a week? She said it was incredible, and the pictures are amazing. And she looks so alive, refreshed, and amazing as well.

arden_spray_a.jpgWell, I didn't make the trip to the Mediterranean, but Elizabeth Arden has created a new perfume line that makes me think (even if just for a second) that I was there.

The line is simply called Mediterranean. And just by smelling the fragrance you become feeling radiant. Maybe a bit sensual and captivating. Yes - those are the words they use to describe the fragrance, and aptly so. Sensual florals combine with creamy woods to reflect the waters and rich texture of the Mediterranean.

The notes in the fragrance:
Peach Nectar Sorbet
Sicilian Mandarin
Damask Plum
Radiant Wisteria
Star Magnolia
Madagascar Orchid
Addictive Sandalwood
Fluid Skin Musk
Golden Amber Whisper

Along with the beautiful holographic design of the packaging, making it seem as if the blue sky is meeting thearden_a.jpg blue sea, the fragrance will make you forget where you are. It is dreamy and intoxicating.

Mediterranean - The Fragrance, the Collection:
Ead de Parfum Spray
1.7 fl oz $47.50
3.3 fl oz $57.50

Body Lotion $29.50
Shimmer Powder with Puff $35.00
Body Cream $40.00

I have been layering the body cream with the shimmer powder, and just one spray of the EDP. I swear that I smell and feel like I just stepped off the cruise with my mother.

Mediterranean just arrived at Elizabeth Arden, so be sure to stop by and take a whiff soon. I know you will want to bring it home too.

And how beautiful is Catherine Zeta Jones, anyway. She always looks like she just back from the Mediterranean, doesn't she?



This Just Made My Day!


Can you hear that?

That is me jumping up and down for joy.


One of my favorite mascaras, Tarte's Lights, Camera, Lashes is coming out with a new waterproof version. It will be called Lights, Camera, Splashes! How cool is that? And instead of the purple moc-croc skin, the tube is covered in waterproof blue denim, with a gold anchor emblem. So cute!


Look for Lights, Camera, Splashes! 3-in-1 Waterproof Mascara at Tarte Cosmetics soon.


Drew Barrymore Takes on New Role With CoverGirl

I just got this news release and had to share. I am so excited for both Drew and Cover Girl!

Barrymore.jpg     "This afternoon Drew Barrymore was ceremoniously unveiled as the newest face of CoverGirl Cosmetics. The star and filmmaker will not only find herself in front of the camera launching new products for the company, but also behind the camera as a co-creative director of her first TV commercial for the Brand.

     “I am honored to be associated with a brand that has been at the forefront of its industry for almost fifty years,” Barrymore said. “CoverGirl has managed to change with the times, yet stay in touch with women of all ages and backgrounds. To be chosen not only as the newest face of CoverGirl, but to be given the opportunity to be a co-creative director of my first TV commercial is truly amazing.”

     A beloved actress and gifted filmmaker, Drew emulates the iconic image of the CoverGirl brand with her fresh, natural beauty, and energetic yet authentic spirit. Her carefree, upbeat personality shines through in all that she does.

     “Drew is a wonderful addition to the CoverGirl family and her role – both in front of the camera and behind the scenes as co-creative director – is new and different for the cosmetics industry,” said Esi Eggleston Bracey, Vice President and General Manager, CoverGirl Cosmetics in North America . “We wanted to honor Drew’s passions as a filmmaker and are thrilled she is not only lending her beautiful face to CoverGirl but also lending her artistic talents as the co-creative director of the ad campaign.”

     Barrymore represents the CoverGirl ideals of both inner and outer beauty. She has been recognized for her sense of style, appearing on top magazine covers and is also an avid volunteer with the United Nations World Food Program.

     Barrymore’s national print and TV ad campaigns will break in January 2008. This is the first major beauty contract for the actress. She joins CoverGirl spokesmodels Queen Latifah , Christie Brinkley , Keri Russell , Molly Sims and Rihanna as the newest face of the Brand."

I think they made a wonderful choice. She is such a fresh face and natural beauty. Congratulations Drew!
