Ladies and gentleman (at the request of some of my male friends) I just had to let you know that Nordstrom’s is currently running a gift with purchase promotion. You will recive a yellow tote with 18 different beauty samples inside when you purchase any fragrance for $85 or more. If you don’t know what scent to buy, then reference my fragrance list in my “This Is What Love Smells Like” post from December 2008. Most of them on the list run $75 and up, and they are all available at Nordstrom (generally the only place I purchase scents).
Its only while supplies last, so don’t hesitate to call your local Nordstrom counter ahead of time to see how many they have left. Here is a short list of what you can find inside the bag. For a complete list please visiti the website.
- Shiseido Facial Cotton
- Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel
- L’Occitane Ultra Rich Body Cream
- Origins ‘No Puffery’ Cooling Mask for Puffy Eyes
- Clinique High Impact Mascara
- 3 different fragrance samples
And the winner is…..
Eva Longoria Parker took the red carpet for me in this very classy Reem Acra gown. With this red gown that seems to be an extension of the already red carpet she still stands out. If someone just said to me a gown that is strapless, has a v-neck and has scalloped trim, I would probably say its ugly and how does that work. But it works! I love it head to toe. She’s my winner of the night.
Beyonce was a runner up in this Elie Saab gown. Always minimizing her waist, exaggerating her curves and giving you a peek-a-boo thigh she knows what works for her body.
Eva Mendes looked stunning in Dior. The white dress against her olive skin matched with the jewelry was a hit for me. Classy and elegant but still chic and didn’t play it too safe.
Ana Pacquin (left) and Hayden Panettiere (right) both looked stunning and gave it up for the 25 and under crowd. Hair, make up and gowns were both on point for the up and coming stars who are holding their own on the small screen. I would also like to give a very big congratulations to Ms. Pacquin who received an award last night for her role as Sookie Stackhouse on the critically acclaimed HBO Series True Blood. I absolutely adore this show and so glad that she won.
Last night’s Golden Globe awards was full of fresh faced make up with a smokey eye here and there. I saw a lot of one shoulder gowns or strapless that were form fitting through the torso with free flowing bottoms. I was pleased for the most part but there were definitely some women that did not stand up to the evening…more on those who missed later.
