Current Favorites: Five Below

This is not your typical favorites post. Usually, I post about personal care products I've been loving, but this time is different.
Don't you love when you randomly stumble a cool store? Backstory: I was at a local gas station looking for a phone charger(I'm always breaking mine) when this nice guy told about a store called Five Below. He said they have phone chargers among everything else. Nothing is priced over five dollars. I was skeptical about a store that sold everything for five bucks, but decided to give it a try. Boy was I amazed!

Canada's luxury retailer, Hudson's Bay is making moves to buy it's luxury competitor, Saks Fifth Avenue for $2.4 billion dollars. If the deal goes through, Saks stores will cross the border into Canada into preexisting Hudson's Bay stores or new stores. New Yorkers do not fret, the Fifth Avenue store will operate separately within the HB brand and will remain open. Saks Fifth Avenue will operate under the same umbrella as Lord and Taylor. Fashionista and fashionistos, what do we think about this.

The Latest In Beauty News: Isaac Mizrahi x Tweezerman

Happy Monday All!

Hope your weekend went well. I spent time with family at our annual family reunion and caught up on some much needed QT time and rest! I bring you another collaboration between two iconic brands.

In today's competitive market, it seems as if the best thing for brands to do is team up to keep up with their consumer base that seems so fickle these day. Yet another collaboration has hit the scene. This time, cult beauty favorite, Tweezerman and fashion industry vet Isaac Mizrahi. Mizrahi was chosen to revamp the look if the iconic Tweezerman tweezers for Isaac Mizrahi's Limited Edition Designer Collection for the brand. The stainless steel tweezers are a presumed staple among any hardcore makeup junkie's essentials.
Famed fashion website, Fashionista, caught up with the designer to get the deets behind the collaboration. Isaac had this to say: 

Fashionista: Why tweezers?

Isaac Mizrahi: Tweezerman is such a great brand. It’s such a reliable, good thing in a woman’s life. My aim as a brand is to befriend a woman, so already you’re starting with this great friendly brand. I’ve always been so manic about brows. I think it’s probably the most important thing a woman has in her beauty arsenal. It starts with her brow.

How did you choose the print on the tools?
I always default to a polka dot. Always. My life is all polka dots. I usually have polka dot lining on my clothes that I make for myself. I figured a bright colorful thing would be really easy to find in the medicine chest.

The collection will be sold exclusively at Sephora stores in August with a price range of $5-25. You will be able to choose from "Splatter Paint" and "Candy Dot" prints. The collection will include the slant  tweezer, the mini slant tweezer, and emory boards. 

Will you be buying the limited edition collection?

Well the Kardashians are moving full steam ahead despite all the legal woes they faced in the past year regarding their beauty line.

Kardashian Beauty will be be hosted by the hottest online retailer across the pond, Feelunique. The site boasts 2.6 million visitors a month, which is great for the Kardashian empire. 

I checked out the website for myself, and while they now go by "Kardashian Beauty", "Khroma Beauty" is still on some the packaging. Hopefully, they worked that little issue out in court as well.

 While perusing through the aisles bursting at the seams with colorful makeup at my local Walgreens, I find myself standing in front of the Wet n Wild section. Not because I wondered there aimlessly, but I needed a new brow pencil. How these other four pencils landed in my shopping bag, I seem to be in a sudden fog.
