Bronzing Mousse: St. Tropez Spray Tan Keeps It Real

Posted on 03/28/2012

St. Tropez Everyday Gradual Tan Mousse In the world of tanning creams and lotions, the latest is the St. Tropez spray tan in the form of a mousse. There are two types of mousse products from this line to give you a perfect, natural glow – the Everyday Gradual Tan Mousse and the Self Tan Bronzing Mousse. The foam is so simple to use that the hottest celebrities (like Penelope Cruz and Kim Kardashian) wear it before hitting the red carpet. The price is so affordable you don’t have to get a second job just to nab a bottle for yourself.

How to Use St. Tropez Spray Tan Mousse

To get your own celebrity-like tan, take a shower in the evening and exfoliate your skin. Don’t forget about your knees, elbows, feet and ankles because the skin in those areas is particularly rough. When you’re completely dry, pull up your hair. (If you have light-colored hair, dab some moisturizer along your eyebrows and hairline.)

Free Your Mane: Pomade Reigns in Your Wild and Curly Hair

Posted on 03/30/2012

Free Your Mane The days of sleek, super-straight hair are out, and natural hair is in. So go ahead and Free Your Mane. The red carpet is full of your favorite celebs unleashing their naturally curly and wavy tresses. But here’s the caveat: While wild and natural is in, the f-word (frizz) is still a big no-no.

Naturally curly and wavy locks can seem like a nightmare to maintain because they are generally drier and more fragile than “normal” hair types. To help control the frizz and flyaways, you need to give your hair what it craves – moisture. Free Your Mane pomade delivers the moisture your tresses desire as well as the hold you seek. Plus, it’s perfect for smoothing down those unruly little hairs that always seem to escape your do.

Burberry Perfume

Posted on 05/14/2012

If there's one brand whose signature pattern can immediately spark a fashion reference it's Burberry. Their distinctive tartan pattern is synonymous with this British luxury fashion house, and it not only graces the handbags but also many of their fragrances. Just like their classic trench coats, Burberry perfumes are a prestigious extension of their lifestyle and accessory collections. 

One of the most popular scents is Burberry's Brit. Enclosed in a glass bottle with signature tartan design, it's a delicate and fresh scent of crisp green almond, icy pear and italian lime. Although crisp, it also has a bit of warmth due to hints of amber and mahogany. The ideal scent for fall, pair this with a trenchcoat (any will do) and you're styling for the season.

Burberry's Body is a 'full bodied' and eclectic combination of creamy vanilla, warm sandalwood, and illuminating peach notes that make a woman feel effortlessly sensual and feminine. Wear this scent when you want that little extra sex appeal. Confidence in a bottle and also one of my personal favorites!
