Personalized tees and sweats for the fabulous only!

 Posted by Hello
Put your own personalized message on any of Neighborhoodies cute tees or sweatshirts. You pick the colors, typeface, and the message. This is the most brilliant thing! (Now you know that you won't run into some one wearing the same shirt, because you both decide to shop at the Gap.) I'm thinking I'll have to get one touting the neighborhood I grew up in w/ a South Side, A-Town sweatshirt (which sounds better than a Little Mexico, A-Town sweatshirt!) (For those of you actually from A-town, you'll, hopefully get the joke in those last lines!) For all of you Ohio folks, they've got a store in Cincinnati, which I'm sure is worth checking out, if you're ever in the neighborhood!

great single note scents

Demeter has got the market on single note scents. Their Sex on the Beach smells just like the fruity cocktail, as does their Orange Dreamsicle. I'm also a fan of the Chocolate Chip Cookie scent, which, again smells just like fresh baked morsels. These are very well priced $10-$18 and a lot of fun to add into your scent collection. (Granted I won't be smelling like a cookie or a fruity drink everyday, but it's fun to have something different every once in awhile.)

fab because of what it is, not whose name is on it

Pricey but worth it, this is from Jessica Simpson's Dessert line. I'd be more inclined to avoid this product, becasue it is celebrity endorsed, but this one's actually got the goods! The gloss comes in a ton of flavors, (I prefer the juicy-tinged Slip)and it smells great, too! It's also got a bit of that tingly thing going on to make your lips look and feel fuller. (Think Lip Venom w/ a fruity flavor and scent.)

Lip Venom to the rescue

I love Lip Venom. Very tingly and fun, and it gives you the perfect bee stung look for lips.

Caudalie: smells good and works too!

Love this line from Paris! It's made w/ grape seed and smells very clean and fresh. I've never been one to go out and buy such expensive beauty products, so instead, everytime I go to the mall, I hit up Sephora for some samples. Now I've got a stockpile of little tubes of Caudalie's entire skin care line.

Caudalie Cleanser $10-$25 Posted by Hello

The cleanser smells just as fab as the rest of the line, and is 2 products in one, cleanser and toner. Definitely worth a try. The small bottle is only $10 and lasted a good 3 weeks.

Caudalie Gentle Buffing Cream, $34 Posted by Hello

The Gentle Buffing Cream is perfect for the face. (Think St. Ives Peach Scrub, acheiving the same results, but much less abrasive.)

Caualie Eye Cream $48 Posted by Hello

The eye cream is to die for. After 2 weeks of using it, I could definitely tell a difference in the puffiness around my eyes.

This mag is fabulous, and most the time pretty funny. The premise of the mag came from the idea of collecting interesting found notes and pictures together and publishing them for everyone to enjoy. The website gives you a pretty good idea of what to expect from the print edition. I got a kick out of the find of the week, below, from Nov 14-20 2004.
