My friend Manna is headed to New York for a whirlwind media tour and she is inviting all of you to join her in a Google Hangout hosted by Birchbox. They are collaborating on a product called sheer glo shimmer lotion (I scored a bottle and can’t wait to try it)
Here are the deets on the hang out …
When: Friday, 12/13 (it’s good luck) at 3pm EST.
Topics: All things beauty
How we met …
Last Holiday Season, I sent out an email to all of my Vanity Girl customers for the Holidays – and one Pro Customer responded with a really lovely email. Turns out she is a beauty entrepreneur herself and owns a very cool cosmetics line named Manna Kadar Cosmetics.
We decided to meet for lunch at Le Pain here in WeHo, and she brought me some of her goodies like her signature bronzer (as seen at some of the hottest celebrity gifting suites) and her yummy smelling lip glosses. We hit it off immediately. With our mutual love of Paris (she was born there, I was an expat there) and our penchant for boy bands and business … that was a lunch that went really long and has since spawned lots of great business opportunities and my recent guest speaking opportunity at FIDM where she teaches in the Beauty Dept. (BTW, huge shout out to the girls of the FIDM beauty department – I swear – it was like finding my Tribe! I can’t wait to see what these ambitious young women … and a few men … do in their future careers.)
Anyway – it’s just really cool when you meet other female entrepreneurs, especially in the beauty space, that are as generous and fun as Manna. She has great products and is just simply – a really cool chick!!
Ciao for Now –
Special Thanks to another cool female entrepreneur and numerologist extraordinaire, Nidhi Handa, because every LA Business Girl needs awesome advice & insight!
Join me as I catch up with my friend, Emmy-ward winning MUA KJ Bennett at the Royal Brush booth at the first annual PHAMExpo. His brushes were born out of his “makeup artist angst” because he simply couldn’t find brushes that kept up with him!
I first met Kevin a few years ago when I was in New York and hung out with YouTube makeup guru @enkore makeup for the first time. The three of us ended up in Chelsea over martinis and the rest they say … is history!

This white Broadway table top vanity found a home with #RealVanityGirl of OC Tara Maresa. I love the framed photos of some of her favorite brands (Chanel is one of my faves too!) and this sleek little desk with storage tuft seating.
Tara also won tickets from us to the PhamExpo where Paw Pallette and Charmed Cosmetics used our vanities to bling out their trade booths. I can’t wait to hear what some of her favorite things were from that show.
I loved this video from @shophaulic777. She is so honest … she’s had her Black Starlet for over a month but hasn’t been able to get to it. I get like that too – especially when it comes to things I think might be difficult to put together.
But she liked that it was so “Super Simple to put together” – like only 7 screws and it comes with everything you need right in the box.

One of our affiliates, Janet Pippins of Allure Makeup Academy, was just featured in her local paper. It’s so great to see her dream come true and now she is getting ready to share her makeup line at the PHAME Expo. She has a few of our Starlet mirrors in her makeup classroom, so if you are in Oceanside or if you are going to be at the PHAME Expo- make sure to look her up and go see our vanities too 🙂
She will be at Booth #609 at the PHAME Expo.

This hot new event seems to be taking the beauty industry by storm and two of our Industry Pro Vanity Girls will be there, blinging out their event booths with their Vanity Girl vanities.
Crystal of Paw Pallette (the beauty & brains behind that brand) will be at booth 410, and if you haven’t seen her paw pallettes, they are the CUTEST things ever.
And makeup instructor and MUA Janet of Allure Makeup Academy (who by the way, held one of the first Vanity Mixers) is launching a new makeup line and she will be in Booth #609.
If you drop by and visit – make sure to take a pic with the vanity and Instagram, Tweet or FB me! I LOVE getting those pics.
Crystal told me that LimeCrime, PurseBuzz and Enkore Makeup will also be there … so I’m sure I will make it over there as well.
What about you? Will you be at the PHAME Expo? Do you still need to Bling out your Booth with one our Vanities? Get some …
Face-kini, Chinese Face Masks To Beach To Avoid Sun Exposure – Anti-Aging – Face – DailyBeauty – The Beauty Authority – NewBeauty.
I have a pesky sunspot that reminds me I have spent way too many days laying out the beach with inadequate sunblock (baby oil anyone?) Which is why I used IS SkinCare’s 50 block while I was in the Dominican Republic (which PS we are giving away in this contest:
Anyway, New Beauty posted this article about the Face-kini, a FULL physical block for your face. When I spent time in Japan, Philippines and Thailand, I did notice that there were shelves and shelves of lightening creams whereas here in Hollywood, the shelves are full of self-tanners, body bronzers and my obsession, leg makeup in a can.
I really do love how each country and even cities, define beauty differently which once again proves, beauty comes in all shapes, sizes and COLOR, so here’s to rocking our unique beauty with pride!
Cheers to all you Real Vanity Girls who do just that, all day … everyday.
