Kid Friendly, Mother Approved

Celeb endorsed jewelry typically makes one think of the customary Fred Leighton, Bvulgari, Cartier trimmings, not usually cute kitschy Hello Kitty and Wizard of Oz adorned beaded jewels. Tarina Tarantino is changing all that with her contemporary line of accessories ranging in price from $30 bucks a pop and up. Noteworthy clients include Katy Perry, Cameron Diaz and Paris Hilton (who is perhaps not so noteworthy). Her collection changes every few seasons but maintains best sellers like her profile enamel rings and glittering charm earrings along with a few outlandish yet incredible impressive baubles. Visit to get your shop on.

A Love Story?

All of you pseudo conservative nuts say what you want about Michael Moore and what is so kindly referred to as his “disgusting socialist outlook on American culture and life”, but you have to admit his work inspires an intellectual thought progression that is often lost on society today. His new film, Capitalism: A Love Story examines the “disastrous impact of corporate dominance on the everyday lives of Americans (and by default, the rest of the world).” I think that although many people may not agree 100% with Moore’s views, this film is exploring the foundation of the recession that our country is currently attempting to pull itself out of. Therefore, regardless of the politics that clearly surround the economic situation, the public should learn as much as we can even if it comes from a source that is not exactly considered America’s sweetheart.

360 Hobo

Game Face

Coerced in part by Scarlett Johansson’s flawless advertisements, the recent launch of the Dolce & Gabbana make-up boutique in Saks Fifth Avenue (Houston Galleria) called to an astonishing number of makeup-aholics such as myself to view the entire collection which happens to be both amazing and also aesthetically pleasing. In the tiny boutique dripping with chandeliers and gleaming gold embellishments, I had the opportunity to become a tester (thanks to the artistic talents of J.C) for the True Red lipstick and Stromboli nail laquer. Walked out of there a whole new woman…but not quite Scarlett.
