The Best $50 You'll Ever Spend

Urban Decay's 'Naked' eyeshadow palette is a must for every woman. It's so good it deserves its own blog. (And I don't say that lightly). The value is actually good considering you get 12 different shades of eyeshadow as well as an eyeshadow base, and a dual-sided pencil of UD's 24/7 waterproof eyeliner in black and brown. It truly has every shade necessary to go from natural to dramatic -and everything in between! You really don't need anything else except a wand of mascara.

Lighten Up!

Popular among celebrities such as Rachel Bilson, Jessica Biel, Drew Barrymore, and Sarah Jessica Parker, ombre haircolor is a great way of achieving a sun-kissed look without the typical maintenance and on-going bleaching/damage to your hair. If you're looking to go lighter for summer but are burned out on typical highlights or aren't quite ready to take the plunge into blonde-land, opt for ombre. The look is both gorgeous and low maintenance.

OnePiece Clothing Debuts on Robertson

With celebrity fans such as Justin Beiber, Lady GaGa, Rihanna, Pink and Usher, it's no wonder Norwegian-born OnePiece clothing decided to launch its first U.S boutique in Los Angeles. Situated on Robertson Boulevard, the epicenter of trendy clothing boutiques, OnePiece has certainly come a long way. The company was founded just 4 years ago by "four hungover Norwegians" who decided to sew a hooded sweatshirt and pair of sweatpants together one day. They connected the two pieces with a giant zipper and the original OnePiece was born. Since then they have gone on to gain mass appeal and worldwide praise. All OnePiece's are created with high quality plush cotton and described as "a dream on the skin." Hmmm...sold!

Get Your Nautical On

Considering the Northeast had one of its worst winters in decades, I'm more happy than ever to break out my spring/summer clothes. In fact, I've never been so happy to see my circa '03 denim cut-offs. Ever. As a native Californian, my first winter in NYC was brutal and had me asking myself repeatedly, "Why did I leave California for this?" Now that the weather is warming up, I remember why: rooftop parties. The Hamptons. Cape Cod. Sailing. Pool parties. 8pm sunsets.Suddenly, the hideous memories of slopping around in 4 feet of soot-covered,snow and living in a wool coat for 6 months started to fade away.

Style Stalker: Rachel Bilson

We <3 Rachel Bilson. She's the BFF every girl wants -for her wardrobe alone. (Hey, Rach, can I borrow that?) Her style is effortless, her beauty is natural and she's so damn adorable in interviews. Whether she's out running errands or hitting the red carpet, her look is always on point. Rachel is a big fan of layers, mixing textures, blazers, hats and denim shorts. She mixes bohemian with classic -resulting in a unique personal style. I'm personally a classic girl and tend to veer away from the super bohemian look, but her ability to mix both (and pull it off) is admirably stylish.

THE SCENE
Women, Drool Come Out to Celebrate Maxim's Hot 100

Wednesday night Maxim magazine celebrated its Hot 100 issue at Eden Club in Hollywood. As you can imagine, it was every man's dream party. Too bad it was dominated by mostly females. (Sorry guys!) The ladies came out in swarms, dressed in varying shiny, short, sexy dresses and sky-high heels. In fact, there was even a sign at the entry that said "No Flat Shoes Allowed." Well, not really, but you get the point. British actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley snagged the coveted #1 spot on Maxim's list, as well as a spot on the best-dressed list.
