Fashion, Beauty and Makeup #TargetStyle

OMG… Last night I attended the Ready, Set, Targetstyle event hosted by the awesome Zanna Roberts Rassi! Just in case you are not into fashion and beauty or you’ve have been depriving yourself from the latest issue of Marie Claire, before we get started, let me give you the beauty 411 on her so next time you will know! 🙂


Zanna is the Marie Claire Senior Fashion Editor, E! News Correspondent, Today Show Fashion Contributor and Project Runway All Stars Mentor! She’s styled A-list celebrities worked with major brands and has hosted a few fashion shows on TV. She is fashion! I could go on and on about how her jumpsuit was everything, how much I loved her on Project Runway and how she said she loved my necklace; but I’ll digress! This post isn’t about her so I’ll move on and get back on track. LOL


Ready, Set, Targetstyle was an event filled with fun, fashion and beauty; three of my favorite things!

The fun started with the emcee Courtney Kornegay creator of the blog Courtwalk. He gave us life and energy for days with his awesome personality. He and Zanna were the perfect fashion match!


The fashion was set with three fashion bloggers styling their muses with the classic item for the season, a white shirt. They had five minutes to make their muses fierce with host Zanna setting the scene for the look we were about to see. Yes, these girls were making it happen and pulling looks together to make us cheer them on and influence the judges to vote for them.


The beauty was on and popping with Pixi by Petra. Four makeup stations were available for anyone who wanted a 5-minute makeover, compliments of the Target Beauty Concierge! What’s a Target Beauty Concierge you ask? Oh my, have a seat and let me give you the beauty rundown.


It’s a fairly new program that started as a test and has now expanded in the higher volume stores. Target has hired and scheduled a beauty advisor to be present on key shopping days to answer your beauty questions and meet your beauty needs from skin consultations to makeovers. Mmm hmm, you better check your local Target to see if there is a Beauty Concierge and when they are scheduled. LOL


IMG_4589I had a chance to have a seat and get a quick 5-minute face beat by the amazing Dee Bastista a Beauty Concierge at the City Target on State Street. He touched up my makeup by enhancing my eyes, shinning my lips and highlighting my cheeks! I loved my look and I can’t wait to purchase some Pixi by Petra products soon!


This was truly a night filled with fun, fashion and beauty and I can’t wait for the next event. Target if you are reading this, that was a hint to have another event and soon because #imbeautyinspired! MUAH

Beauty Week in Review 10.19.13


Hey Beauty Scholars!!! Welcome to the second edition of Beauty Week in Review.

While the week started off slow, it ended with lots of news to share with you this weekend so let’s get started!!!

Replay (a jeans line) receives a worldwide fragrance license with Mavive Spa who is based in Italy. Mavive Spa is part of a bigger company called Massimo Vidal, which is huge in the perfumery sector.

The beauty giant L’Oreal is considering a deal with Shiseido Co. LTD to acquire the beauty brands Carita and Decleor. These are two French based skincare brands currently housed in the professional division of Shiseido. While I am not familiar with Carita, I am familiar with Decleor. Decleor is luxury skincare line based on aromatherapy and natural beauty through the use of plant extracts and essential oils to help rebalance and re-energize your senses and skin. For the record, I am very excited to hear about this collaboration!!!

I suppose the best news for me is hearing that my fashion icon Kerry Washington is set to join Neutrogena as a Creative Consultant…Go Kerry!!! She will not just be the Brand Ambassador; she will also consult on product development and marketing. Ms. Kerry is definitely doing her thing and if she needs an assistant, I am going on the record to say that I am available and ready!!! LBVS #TeamKerryWashungton

The powerhouse of styling hair tools GHD is set to team up with Victoria’s  Secret for their annual fashion show as the hair tools sponsor for the first time ever. This is a long time coming and I think it is a no brainer, as hair, beauty and fashion all go together. I don’t know about you all but I will be watching and reporting back to you with My P.O.V. 🙂

Makeup Artist Sonia Kashuk will not only continue to sell her cosmetics in Target, she will soon add bath and body products as well. The launch date is set for November 10th with 24 products ranging from $4.99 – $19.99 and I will be ready and waiting to try as well as review the products to let you know if this is worth your time and or investment!!!

The lux brand Illamasqua is adding space in the Bloomingdale’s cosmetics department for an exclusive counter concept. Sounds like Bloomingdale’s is bringing their “A game” so they can compete with the big glam divas in the world of beauty. Look out MAC…there is some competition lurking around the corner…LOL.

Rimmel and Rita Ora team up for a collection of 12 quick dry nail polishes and 7 lip colors to launch in February. This sounds interesting and I will keep you posted…with a review, of course!!!

Fashion giant Oscar de la Renta is making a comeback with fragrances in a deal with Inter Parfums. The deal should be completed in December and cosmetics have been added to the list. Welcome back to the world of beauty Mr. Oscar de la Renta…you have been missed!!!

Estee Lauder has partnered with Derek Lam to launch a limited edition makeup line. The collection will cost $85, which will include a satin hard-cased clutch with Lam’s signature clasp. The collection will be sold at Saks Fifth Ave., Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman in the US. It will also be sold in the Europe at Harrods, Galeries Lafayette and El Corte Ingles as well as This sounds like a sexy collection and I can’t wait to check this out. Dear Santa…I hope you or Mrs. Clause are reading this as I think I want this…pleas and thank you!!!
