ILuminage Skin Rejuvenating Pillowcase ($60) – I’ve always heard silk sheets are better for your skin since they are less abrasive then cotton and after getting this pillowcase I don’t think I can ever go back. And it takes anti-aging while you sleep to a whole new level. Embedded with Copper Oxide, it acts like a night moisturizer on your skin, releasing copper ions into the skin’s surface which get released into skin to support it’s natural self-renewal mechanism and help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Plus since it’s a pillowcase it’s easily portable for anywhere you travel.
Happy Fridays! There’s two things I’m all about this summer, bright red lips and traveling so in the perfect marriage of the two, we’re giving away 10 sets of bareMinerals for Virgin America airlines, Pretty Amazing Lipcolor in shade ‘Upper Class Red‘. Considering the striking lip color is tough to get your hands (or lips on) — it’s only available exclusively at the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse Spat at Heathrow, Gatwick and JFK airports, we’re so excited to partnering with Virgin Atlantic to give 10 sets away!

While I have no immediate plan to have children (someday!), I’ve come to realize I have a something in my life, that gets more demanding with age, wants endless attention, exhausts me and brings me more joy then I ever expected at the same time — yes, I’m talking about my blog! (yes, it’s my baby.) And with that I have something very much relate to these busy moms that need no-nonsense beauty and fashion tips, electronics that save time and everyday advice to make life that much easier. So when the queen of mom blogs, Nicole Feliciano, founder of MomTrends hosted her annual beauty event filled with educational guests including Caryn Effron of GoGirl Finance and Beauty Director, Valerie Monroe of O, The Oprah Magazine, I was all in!
Hosted at Blow, the trendy salon and original pioneer of the blow dry bar in NYC’s Meatpacking District, we got full on makeovers using the QVC bareMinerals line as well as learned 3 easy-but-don’t-look-easy pro worthy hair styles that can be done at home: sophisticated ponytail, retro glam waves and a special-occasion updo?.

Seriously though, how great does the special-occasion updo look?
Pucker up Virgin Atlantic passengers, the airline is partnering with cosmetic brand, bareMinerals to produce an exclusive lip color shade “Upper Class”. The debut of this lip color will mark the launch of the airline’s redesigned Upper Class cabin which takes to the skies this month.
The airline has selected the award-winning makeup brand bareMinerals to develop the perfect lip product recreating the iconic ‘Virgin Atlantic Red’ – giving high-flying passengers the chance to experience the jet-set glamour and style synonymous with the airline’s distinctive cabin crew, who are known worldwide for their iconic red lips, suits and shoes.
“Red hot lips have always been a trademark of our cabin crew, signifying the strength and confidence they embody,” noted Rebecca Creer, Senior Spas and Grooming Manager at Virgin Atlantic Airways. “With the launch of ‘Upper Class Red’, one of Virgin Atlantic’s most iconic attributes is finally being made available to passengers. Meaning one swipe of this color is all you need to create a classic and timeless look – something our cabin crew can certainly vouch for!”
Now available, “Upper Class Red” will premiere on-board and in clubhouses at Heathrow, JFK and Gatwick and retail for $16.
