This week… Joey Lawrence and Pampers, CoSTUME NATIONAL at Saks, Rx for brown skin and TV Land Awards!
CELEBRATE. We love a birthday ΓÇô so give a high five to Pampers, which celebrates its 50th this month. The company’s big present? Unveiling their Little Miracle Missions campaign, a year-long effort that celebrates, supports and protects babies through various acts of kindness. Parents with children in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at New York City’s The Mount Sinai Hospital received care packages from celebrity fellow parents Ali Larter, LaLa Vazquez Anthony, Mark Consuelos and Joey Lawrence, who experienced expert neonatal intensive care during the birth of his second daughter. Now with two healthy girls, Charleston and Liberty Grace, running around the house, Joey is already thinking about their future, and the rules to date his daughters. “I’m going to be on the first date, I’m going to be the chauffeur… You think I’m letting them be alone in a car with some jerk?” he declared to us at the event. Future suitors take note: Along with the video camera and shot gun Joey plans to greet his daughters’ dates with at the door, “I already know what I’m telling these guys,” he revealed. “It’s gonna to be, ‘I want you to have a good time tonight; just know whatever you do to my daughter I’m doing to you when you bring her home, simple as that.'” You’ve been warned!

SHOP. Style Gals always get excited when we discover a clothing line that’s new to us. While CoSTUME NATIONAL has been around since 1986, we just learned about the Italian fashion house this week when we got an exclusive invitation to the line’s launch at Saks Fifth Avenue in the heart of New York City. After sipping champagne and listening to an intimate set by singer Martha Wainwright, we checked out the merchandise. CoSTUME NATIONAL is not for the faint of heart: the dresses and separates have a bright, vivid color palette including blues, oranges and golds, as well as basics in black, white and nude. The price isn’t for the faint of heart either: one gold shift we checked out retails for more than $1100. We’ll save our pennies to scoop up this sweet, patterned dress with detailing down the front; perfect for an upcoming romp in the Hamptons. You can experience your own version of CoSTUME NATIONAL online at Saks.com, which currently carries several of the company’s shoe designs. See more of the line here. (Style Gals)
SOOTHE. Having healthy, glowing skin is the goal of every DivaGal. When you’re a DivaGal of a chocolate hue, there can be some special skin issues, like hyper-pigmentation and dark spots, which we have dealt with on a personal level. That’s why we were so glad we were shipped Rx for Brown Skin, a skin perfecting kit. Founded by Dr. Susan Taylor, a dermatologist with more than 20 years of experience (and a women of chocolate hue herself!), the two-part system of is designed to help reduce the appearance of dark marks and discoloration, even skin tone and soften and brighten our faces sans harsh chemicals or bleaching agents. We gave it a try near our eye area, where we suffer from the darkest of spots. Within weeks, we saw the rumblings of a difference, which continues to improve every day. Check out the Rx for Brown Skin site for a special deal on the products. (Style Gals)
