Bunny at The Boulders_A Waldorf-Astoria Resort_ScottsdaleThis little bunny lives in Scottsdale, AZ, somewhere on the grounds of The Boulders, a sprawling Waldorf Astoria resort in the Sonoran Desert.  Along with a few friends, Boulder Bunny was enjoying an early December pre-dusk outing on a grassy patch just off the resort’s extensive golf green. I snapped this shot with my friend Linda’s camera, a NIKON D300 with an 18-300mm zoom lens. *covet* [geek on]


Revlon Spiderman Electric Chrome Collection 2014Every once in a while, a collection comes along that really smacks me right in the eye. It doesn’t happen often because most collections are just too big. This one is the perfect size. In fact, I think it could be one bottle smaller. But I digress because what I really want to show you is the swatches. Oooh.. the swatches…. Oh, and no. These nail polishes were not worn by Mary Jane (aka Revlon face Emma Stone) in Spiderman2. This Revlon Spiderman limited-edition nail polish lineup was inspired by Jamie Foxx’s character, Electro.

confidence and womenLovelies, what the heck is wrong with us? We women have confidence issues. Not that that’s news. But too often our confidence issues have little basis in reality. Okay, not news either. Our confidence issues hold us back. Right — also. not. news. How many times have you refrained from reaching for a goal because you didn’t think you knew enough, had enough experience, or were good enough? Well enough is enough. [geek on]

Cate Blanchett, Penelope Cruz and Florence Welch are just a few of the celebrity beauties makeup artist Sheri Stroh has worked with over her decade-long career. That’s her work on Selena Gomez, above. Sheri’s also been tapped for editorials by Canada’s top beauty, fashion and lifestyle publications, and interviewed for her extensive product knowledge and keen interest in green beauty. More important than all that, Sheri Stroh knows how to create that sexy Selena Gomez waterlined eye, and how to make that waterline eye liner stay put. So here’s how to line your eyes kinda like you’re Selena Gomez. [geek on]

Weleda natural haircareI never thought I’d switch to natural shampoo and conditioner. I like the idea of using planet-friendly personal care, but I deal with an itchy scalp and flakes. A well-known drugstore line created for exactly those issues works really well for me. Swapping it for natural formulas = risk. But when Weleda natural hair care launched, I decided to try the shampoo designed to help a flaky scalp. More of my story in a bit; now let me tell you about next Monday’s #WeledaHairDare Twitter chat and the prizes you could win. [geek on]


1-Easter-Nails-Header-ManisOnTheMove_Easter nails? Really? Is it Easter already? I don’t have time! Gah!! Wait. Hold on. Maybe Caren of Manis On The Move has a little time? Hmm…. So here’s what I did. I boxed up a whack of Easter-y shades of polish, stuck a blank nail wheel in there, slapped a lid on it, and had Caren take it home to play. Stuff happened. Stuff I had nothing to do with. Easter nails! [geek on]


480854031TM00262_2014_MTV_MWhen it comes to the red carpet right now, I’m only interested in the event’s Lupita Nyong’o makeup moment. Part of the reason is Nick Barose, the artist behind the actress’s striking makeup looks. Love how he plays with colour and shape and energy. And part is Lupita Nyong’o herself. She’s having fun with fashion and fame, and she absolutely met expectation at last night’s MTV Movie Awards. [geek on]
