Jewelry’s Crossover To Makeup: Melmacz Oyster Pearl Powder

We’ve heard about using precious materials in beauty routines—there was the gold facial (or the crazies who just drink gold). Problem is, all that pretty stuff just gets washed off. Now here’s something indulgent meant to be shown off—Melmacz’s Oyster Pearl Powder. Made from real ground pearls, you dust the powder on eyelids as a highlighter, or all over to give your skin a glowy finish. The rose-scented product may pack a luxurious price, but … it’s probably cheaper than a pearl necklace. Or a gold facial for that matter. [$50, Barneys.com]

Beauty Test Drive: Frederic Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Cream

Winter does horrible things to our hair, so we splurged on some Frederic Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Cream in the hopes that the gods of hair care would favor us with good results if we spent $27. Wishful thinking. While the stuff does, in fact, tame some of the fly-aways and add a bit of shine, it’s a tad more slick and goopy than we’d like it to be, often looking more icky-oily than pretty-shiny. Defeated with an almost-full tube of not-so-Brilliant Glossing Cream in hand, we decided to do the unthinkable and try the drugstore version, instead. Keep reading »

Check This Out: Les Néréides Necklaces

It’s hard to embrace chic Parisian style without seeming cliche (hint: skip the beret and don’t even go near that Eiffel Tower-print bag in the Louvre souvenir shop). That’s why we love the necklaces from Les Néréides, which feature tiny Paris scenes on pendants. On the Café des Poètes necklace, you see a chic woman in front of a typical metro stop. The Scooter style shows a classy girl on a Vespa. And while the signature Eiffel Tower design does have France’s famous landmark worked in, it somehow manages to come off as completely … how you say … sophistiqué. [Colette.fr] Keep reading »

BDG Long Sleeve Printed Thermal One Piece

You know we’re big fans of jumpsuits here at The Frisky, but even we’ll admit that wearing one in public can be hazardous, especially when you have to tinkle. So for now we’re wearing our one-pieces at home, where we can be cute and cozy at the same time. And don’t have to worry about any unfortunate bathroom mishaps.

Cheapskate: Newport News

Newport News is one of those not so hip stores that sometimes manages to get featured in hipper magazines like Lucky, but still remains off people’s radar. It’s kind of a Forever 21 for women in their late 30s and older. But! You can always find something that’s on trend that isn’t a blatant designer knockoff, especially sweaters, tunics, and sheath dresses. Also, it’s way cheap. See what inexpensive items I found after the jump.

What’s The Best Holiday Dish You Chowed Down On?

Ah, the holiday season! It’s full of presents, family, and best of all food, lots and lots of food. And it’s not your average fare. At parties people really bust out their best recipes. Fat intake flies out the window, and my diet becomes basically, cream, butter, sugar, and pork. Mmm! Although I can’t really cook, I can really eat. While I thought I had basically conquered deliciousness with the yummy stuff I’d eaten to date, this year I ate my way to the peak of perfect mouthfuls. A family friend brought over her honey scallops wrapped in bacon. There are no words in the English language to describe the crispy flavor explosion that those bites brought. Heck, I’d probs give up sex in exchange for a lifetime supply. Is that crazy? Honey, if loving bacon is wrong, I don’t wanna be right! Now, what was the most mind-blowingly awesome thing you ate during the holidays this year? Keep reading »

Quick Tip Of The Day: DIY Your Own Wrapping Paper

Working in fashion, my apartment is constantly overrun with magazines. I’ve found every little nook and cranny to hide my favorites for storage, but sometimes, a few have to be sent down the trash chute. I’ll rip out choice editorials and shove them in scrapbooks or paste them on my inspiration board so as not to feel as though I’m completely abandoning an old friend. When the holidays or birthdays come around, I’ve found it’s the perfect time to recycle. You see, instead of buying wrapping paper (which I see as a huge waste of money), I carefully tear off magazine covers and use the glossy page as a present covering. Here’s a hint — W works best for larger books based on it’s size, while the international magazines are better choices in terms of aesthetics. My little DIY project is not only a innovative and decorative way of covering gifts, but a great way to re-use those beloved magazines. Or, if you’re not a magazine junkie like me, here are gorgeous, yet creative wrapping paper options for the holiday season. Keep reading »

Get Rid Of Holiday Stress With A Spiked Eggnog Latte

These last few days have just been a wee bit stressful, trudging from store to store as I started and finished my holiday shopping in mere days. So, now that I’ve wrapped my last gift, it’s time to relax with a spiked beverage. Warm drinks like eggnog usually put me to sleep, but this variation on the classic drink from Tanuki Tavern in New York City includes a shot of espresso, so Christmas caroling, here I come!

The Japanese Super Snuggie Will Turn You Into A Human Larva

The Japanese two-legged sleeping bag is amazing, not because it’s a revolutionary design, but because someone thought people would actually want it. There’s no way any infomercial spokesperson would touch this thing. [Impact Lab] Keep reading »
