Beauty, MakeupThe Eyes Have It

clq_ZKYC01_402x464Clinique is well-loved for their popular Chubby Sticks, so I was super excited when I heard they were launching their Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara. As someone who has thinner, short lashes (can you even see them?!), the Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara promises “lusciously full-bodied, curled, thick lashes.” Offered in four colorful shades, this mascara is highly pigmented mascara for strong definition, which is perfect for a gal like myself. The oversized molded brush and the mascara’s thickening polymers helps deliver volume. All mascara tends to weigh my lashes down, so I still needed the help clq_ZGH504_402x464of a eyelash curler – but if you have thicker lashes, this mascara will probably immediately give your lashes a lift. It also basically stays put through the whole day – a total win! (Because really, who has time to freshen up their mascara mid-day?!)

I also tried their Just Browsing Brush-On Styling Mousse for brows. My brows are pretty light, so I definitely need some help to give them definition. What I loved about this product was it’s ease of use. The gel-mousse formula defines, styles and thickens brows instantly with just a few strokes. It’s “formulated with a combination of silicone film formers that keep brows in place” – and after trying it, I can assure you that it does not smudge! At $16, it’s a total must to help define your eyes!

Mom & KidsDreft-ing with Bebe

Before baby, all the mamas in my life told me that there will be a lot of stains coming into my life. And boy, were they right! I never know how much spit-up, diaper blowouts, etc. there would be. Dreft literally has been saving my baby’s clothes (and my sanity). Most moms rely on Dreft’s detergent to clean their baby’s clothes gently, but did you also know they make fantastic stain remover?

I love the pen version to stick in my bag always. It’s really simple to use. Just remove excess residue from stain by placing something absorbent (like a napkin, wipe, etc.) behind the stain, while squeezing pen. Then use scrubber like an eraser to get rid of the stain. If I’m at home, the spray version is great. I simply spray the stain remover onto the stain and let it sit for a few minutes, after which I rinse and scrub under the hottest water the fabric will allow. In just minutes, voila – clothes are stain-free!

Accessories, Insider's Obsessions, ShoesInsider’s Obsessions: Vanessa Seide


Vanessa L. Seide founded Very Lovely Soles in 2012 as homage to her initials and the core meaning of her brand’s spirit. A thirteen-year veteran of Nine West Group Inc. and having grown up in a family of successful entrepreneurs, starting a footwear company of her own was a natural progression for Vanessa.

Vanessa found her niche and passion in flats after years of traveling and trend sourcing the globe seeking the perfect pair, but to no avail. Using her deep factory relationships, knowledge of the industry and inspiration from her trips, the concept for the perfect flat collection was developed and immediately put into action.

Each pair of Very Lovely Soles flats goes through hours of meticulous crafting from Italy’s finest shoemakers then is delicately marked with a tiny hummingbird logo. The insole is embedded with form fitting layers offering hidden support in a clean, streamlined silhouette – a technique and standard unique to Very Lovely Soles.
