Ask anyone on the red carpet and they'll tell you that Topstick rules! It's saved more nip slips than there are pictures of Paris Hilton out there. This clear double sided tape can hold your sexy and revealing dress in place, it'll keep your belt from pelting you in the leg if it's sticking out the side of your dress, and it's inexpensive! Every gal should own it and you can buy it here for $3.95.
The Braza Happy Strap is genius. It's so simple, and makes the world look like much more of a classy place to live. This nothing little strap pulls your regular bra straps together (no need for a racer-back bra buy) so your straps are hidden behind beaters and skinny tanks. Buy it here for $6.00

I just tried Chanel's VITALUMIERE Satin Smoothing Fluid Makeup SPF 15. It's a foundation and it is light and amazing! The best part about it is that you don't even have to wear bronzer with it. Anything that can save me a step, I really appreciate. It gives off the teeniest bit of shimmer and it makes your skin look absolutely youthful and radiant.
Since it's Chanel, it's also got that genius pump-action bottle, that gives you just the right amount of product for your entire face. It's too bad I only got a sample, I can't wait to order it NOW! It also happens to be on sale from $62.30 to $37.70. I love a great deal.

Eye cream is a luxurious and rich moisturizer formulated to help nourish the super thin, soft and delicate skin around your eyes. It also prepares skin for easy and smooth concealer application. Experts say that you should start using an eye cream by the age of 28 as a preventative measure. Here are some of my favorite picks (ranging from expensive to moderate):
Amore Pacific Intensive Vitalizing Eye Complex is a featherweight gel that keeps your delicate eye area radiant, firm and hydrated using a time release system. It minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and also fights off puffiness and dark circles. Buy it here for $100.

Like the little denim jacket, the denim skirt is a wardrobe staple that will never go out of style. It can be worn to work (well, some people's work), out at night, on the weekends, running around town, just about anywhere. Denim mini's (along with all miniskirts) are definitey in right now, but so are knee-length styles.
Here are a few of my favorites for right now, go FAB Finding and show me some of yours!
