Estée Lauder has teamed up with Harper’s Bazaar for the second year for their Fabulous At Every Age contest!

The two brands have teamed up to find five of America’s chicest women, ages 20-60+, in the second-annual Fabulous at Every Age search. Inspired by one of the magazine’s most popular features, it showcases how trends can be transformed into great, age-appropriate looks, highlighting the distinctive personal style of the world’s most revered fashion icons.

To enter the contest, readers can nominate themselves or other fabulous women at or at all-day casting calls at select Estée Lauder counters at Saks Fifth Avenue stores.

Lancôme Declares Friday, October 22nd Genes Day!


This is a great initiative that I just had to share!

WHO: Lancôme joins forces with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

WHAT: Genes Day: Lancôme will donate $7 from each bottle of Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

DATE: ONE DAY ONLY: October 22nd


In a celebration of the beauty of scientific research, Lancôme will donate $7 from each bottle of their latest skin care breakthrough Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to aid with scientific research.

Internationally recognized for its pioneering work in finding cures and saving children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases, St. Jude is the first and only pediatric cancer center to be designated as a Comprehensive Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute. St. Jude is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance. No child is ever denied treatment because of the family's inability to pay. St. Jude is financially supported by ALSAC, its fundraising organization.

Coveted by celebrities like Julia Roberts and Christina Hendricks, Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate is the product of ten years of research and recipient of seven international patents. To learn more about Génifique, here is the link to my original post about it.
