Glam Damn It
Last Friday we were invited to MiN New York, a haute perfumery, apothecary, and atelier shop west of Broadway in SoHo, specializing in rare and niche products curated from all over the world as well as scent design, to sample some of the upscale scents that they offer. Founded by Chad Murawczyk, the collections featured in the Atelier are curated by Vice President Mindy Yang. We were greeted by Olya Bar, the Manager of Wonder, who guided us through the structure and process of choosing a scent at Min.
Justin Timberlake is having one fine moment right now. His record sales continue to grow as he bangs out hit after hit on the billboard charts. The 20/20 experience is an album that represents his growth in manhood and his musical diversity with more than a few nods to his executive producing buddy Timbaland. The pop sensation embarks on a tour this year heating up stages along the coast. As he continues to be the most celebrated entertainers of our generation, we look at Justin’s style evolution throughout the length of his singing career.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have aimed to expand their empire. Our favorite twins have bought a minority stake in the e-commerce company, BeachMint- based in Los Angeles.

This adds to their highly impressive fashion portfolio of lifestyle fashion labels such as The Row, Elizabeth and James, and Olsenboye.
As the temperatures start to drop in the city, and the leaves start to change color, it reminds us that it's time to update our wardrobes! Many women and men of the city are pressed for time and need to look our best with ease. Joonbug recently checked in with The Shops at Riverside to see the latest trends from some of our favorite stores. There's something to be said about hitting the mall with your besties, picking up fabulous new wardrobe pieces, and hitting a fun restaurant afterwards. Many of the looks are styles you can wear to work and beyond! We love that! Now, let's get to the fashion! Viva la fall!
We stumbled upon an amazing website, and had to pinch ourselves to make sure we weren't dreaming. PLNDR.com is an exclusive, members-only online boutique that features collections from websites such as Karmaloop.com and Kazbah.com.
But wait, there's more! The site also hosts an array of limited time sales lasting 48-72 hours that feature all of the cutting-edge clothing brands. If you're wondering what the catch is, there is none. During these sales, you can find items marked up to 80% off . You might as well call it stealing, because that's what it practically is.
Be sure to keep an eye out for promotional codes always displayed on the page, such as, "Buy One, Get One" offers. Be fabulous, be money-smart. Happy Bargaining !

This year, the City of Lights welcomed the style-studded pair, Kimye (sans Northwest), with their entourage, stern looks, and designer handbags/sneakers in tow.

The couple hit the streets, where they were photographed during each day of the fashion event. We break down what they wore and re-create the look for less.
