Fashion Star: Love it or Leave it?

Even in my flu induced fever I had to tune into the premiere of NBC’s Fashion Star last night. Wondering how many of you tuned in and what you thought? I am still a little on the fence about the show, there were some things I loved  but some of the show was very hard to watch.

The Good:

  • Mentors: Loved Jessica, John, and Nicole,they make a great trio of mentors and some of their comments had me dying laughing. (How great was it hearing Jessica say she wanted to slap the chauvinist?)
  • Fashion: Fashion shows always have great unique looks but I really like that this show focuses on items that will appeal to people of different shapes and sizes.
  • Love it Buy it: How great is it that you can buy the winners look the next day?! Some of the designs purchased last night sold out in under an hour!

The Bad:

  • Music: Not sure if it was just my fever talking but the music was horrendous.
  • Editing: Too many long shots, fog  and some parts of the show just dragged on. Hoping things will even out after the premiere episode.
  • Commercial Overload: The whole show kind of felt like it was yelling at me what to buy it was a  little over the top like a Superbowl commercial run long.
My favorite of the night was the Sarah Parrot dress for H & M, love the cut out in the back and the blue color is gorgeous!
What did you think, will you tune in again?

Does Jennifer Aniston drop $8,000 a month on beauty treatments?

Daily Mail has a story today about Jennifer Aniston’s beauty regimen, claiming the actress spends a whopping $8,000 a month on beauty products and treatments. I don’t think I necessarily doubt she would spend that much. If I had Jennifer’s money – I might be tempted to spent unreasonable amounts of money on products as well! If you had that kind of money – wouldn’t you stay on top of your skin with all the tools available?

Another thing…. Jen looks amazing, so whatever she’s doing – she should keep on doing it!

Hollywood’s golden girl, Jennifer Aniston, is envied by millions for her perfectly sun-kissed glow, toned body and shiny locks and now we know how much it costs. The Wanderlust star, 43, reportedly spends $8000 a month on lotions and potions, her dietary regime and her exercise schedule in order to maintain her flawless appearance.

On skincare alone, the bronzed beauty is estimated to invest in the region of $2000 monthly. Aside from the ‘horrifying’ peel that Aniston says leaves her looking like a ‘battered burn victim’ for a week, the actress indulges in soothing treatments and creams.

One neck ointment she uses, by beauty brand Euoko, is allegedly made with crystals from the planet Mars and costs $450 while she regularly splurges on Tracie Martyn Spa Red Carpet Facials that cost over $500.

On leaving the New York spa, she reportedly takes home a $390 goodie bag of products. To offset the expense of her extravagant facials, Aniston washes her face with a cheap Neutrogena Facial Cleansing Bar and moisturizes daily with comparatively affordable Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream for around $40. But she makes sure she stays young and wrinkle free with Mila Moursi Rejuvinating Serum for $350.

Her private yoga sessions with trainer and best friend Mandy Ingber set her back nearly $900 a week for three hours of stretching and cardio.

Of her rigorous workouts, Aniston has gushed in the past: ‘I feel like I am getting a meditation, a workout and time with my friend, all rolled into one hour.’

And let’s not forget Aniston’s dietician, Carrie Watt, whose consultation fees and home delivery service total around $680 a week. For the girl-next-door look, $8000 seems like a lot of money to spend but if anyone has a wallet deep enough to pay for it, it is Jennifer Aniston.

The Mail

I don’t get why they’re making such a big deal about it, really. Who cares?
