The Latest from #ShareYourBeauty + Your Chance to win over $2,000 in Beauty Products!


It’s been a very inspiring couple of days. As some of you know I started the Share Your Beauty program last February through the non-profit, Family-to-Family, giving brands, editors, bloggers and beauty hoarders the opportunity to donate their unopened beauty products to homeless, and battered women’s shelters and those in need.

This is what being buried under 145 LeSportsac bags filled with beauty products looks like

After hosting several drives our friends at LeSportsac offered their headquarters in Times Square as a drop off location in NYC so we could accept products year round. With the holidays approaching we decided for November to partner with Good Shepherd Services, a youth and family development agency whose programs include foster care. So we sent out an email to our awesome list of bloggers and brands and I’m so excited to announce that we were able to fill 130 LeSportsac bags for the full occupancy of teens (85 bags for the girls, 45 for the boys) in the Family Foster Care program in the Bronx (and had a whole lot of product to spare to send off to their staff and volunteers).

To give you some idea on how amazing the beauty community is, that with just one email we received over 2,500 beauty products (which is like over $30k+ worth of goods!) and I’d like to take a moment to personally thank Henri Bendel, L’Occitane, Aveeno, bareMinerals, Buxom, Knock Out nail polish, Redken, Pureology, DNA PR, Ashley Kalinske of amfAR, Elizabeth Kennedy of Stadiumred, Amanda Brown/, Amber Katz/, Vicky Sullivan/, Kristin Booker/, JM/, Lauren Dimet Waters/, Megan Zeitz/, Pamela Pekerman/, Candice Sabatini/, my In His Clothes and Pretty Connected team and of course LeSportsac for being my amazing partners in crime, err good!

HELP US SPREAD THE WORD! And you could win…

We had so much left over product (that’s after we filled the 145 bags, plus two huge boxes of product to the staff!) we decided to fill one of LeSportsac’s Extra Large Weekender bags with over $2,000 worth of beauty products and are giving it away to one lucky winner who helps us spread the word!
