Watch Haute Market LIVE!

Haute Market shopping party is just a half day away and I've finally (I think) figured out this web streaming stuff. Old dog, new tricks.

Watch the event via our live streaming web cam Sunday, Feb. 21st from 1 to 3pm central time.

Honestly, I'm not sure what will happen. Hopefully we'll interview some fashionistas, spot great styles and maybe even get a few to confess their fashion sins. You know out of a room of hundreds of women, someone wears a scrunchie, or beige hose, or crocs.

Tune and and let's have some fun!

Fashion Week -spring trends

It's Fall Fashion Week in New York City but most of us are still feeling the smack down of the recent winter storms and can just barely manage looking at what's coming for spring.
As an attempt to inspire and give hope that spring will eventually arrive, here are a few of my faves from Spring 2010 fashion week are posted on the Haute Weekly facebook fan page

E.M.U.lator - the Emu Oil

Recently I was given a sample of E.M.U.lator, Emu Oil, by Giella.
I've only been using it about a week but I do like the way it feels on my skin and look forward to seeing improvements!

The 411 from E.M.U.lator creator Giella
Ingredients: Pure emu oil and Vitamin E oil

Price: $38.00 or $55.00 depending on the size 1/3 oz or 1 oz.

Benefits of Emu Oil
It is quickly and easily absorbed into the skin, rather than simply "sitting" on the top layer of your skin cells, as most other oils and lotions do. It travels deep in your epidermis.

Emu oil is
· non-comodogenic, so it will not clog pores or cause acne or other skin ailments
· anti-inflammatory as emu oil contains linolenic and oleic acids; the essential fatty acids your body needs to nourish its cells
· a deep, penetrative moisturizer; a cell nourishment with essential fatty acids
· helpful in combating the effects of the aging process. Research has shown that emu oil can thicken the skin, which reduces the appearance of aging. It also regenerates collagen which helps keep our skin supple, elastic and smooth.
· Healing. It can be used for scars, burns, arthritis, & muscle aches. In fact, many people use 100% pure emu oil for relief of symptoms related to numerous conditions, including eczema, rosacea, psoriasis, rheumatism, and hair loss.
It also helps soften stretch marks.

Surviving Fashion Week, Parties and Platforms

New York Fashion Week is just a few days away and every smart fashionista will have an arsenal of style survival tools.

My bag includes:

Foot Petals products.
This Stiletto Survival Kit: Tip Toes, Heavenly Heelz, Strappy Strips and Killer Kushionz, plus Sole Stopperz will help you strut safely on realway or runway and help preserve the soles of your new shoes.

These come in handy for a day of setting up and strolling around Haute Market shopping party and for braving the tents at Bryant Park.
On sale now!
Thanks to the generous contribution of Atkins Bars to the Haute Market goodie bags, I am addicted to the Endulge bars and need to buy them by the case.
I keep one or two in my purse for those times when I dash out the door to get to a meeting on time, or to catch the subway at fashion week. Quiets that rumble in your tummy in a sweet way!

Once my morning coffees are emptied (or after a long night of Fashion Week after parties) Green Machine by Naked juices helps me get my mojo back and stop me from dragging through the morning.

Yes, the green color is weird, and reading the label knowing you'll be drinking broccoli, spinach and other salad ingredients is a bit concerning...but trust's my magic in a bottle!

Of course I have the beauty bag stocked full of face refreshers and eye brighteners...but that comes later.
