Beija-Flor Cosmo Pink Jean Benefits Breast Cancer

Me modeling the cosmo pink jeans./Everything She Wants To shop with a purpose this fall, purchase a pair of Beija-Flor cosmo pink jeans that benefit breast cancer. We love jeans that flatter a grown woman's figure, and the Brazilian brand  Beija-Flor  does exactly that thanks to curve-friendly details like: a no-gap contour waist; high back and mid-rise front; flattering pocket placement; memory stretch denim; and an engineered butt-lift. Starting in October, Beija-Flor's eco chic  Jennifer Jean in eye catching cosmo pink  ($178) will be 20 percent off and $10 of each jean sold will go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Just use the code:  COSMOPINK Each pair of the stylish skinny jeans, which are more of a light red in hue than pink, are made with Repreve, a recycled fiber made with 8 recycled plastic bottles. So you can look good and feel good about your purchase!

Nivea Debuts New Packaging and 25 Percent More Per Bottle!

Earlier this month, NIVEA unveiled its new packaging design inspired by the original NIVEA Creme Tin. The new look features the iconic round, blue NIVEA logo, features sleeker, smoother bottles and helps unify the full NIVEA product collection when you see it on the shelves of your local Target, Walgreens or favorite drugstore. As a NIVEA Digital Influencer, I'm a little biased and I love the more modern reinterpretation. The classic blue packaging, however, will always spark nostalgia.  But no matter how they're packaged, I can personally attest to how well the NIVEA Q10plus range --the Skin Hydration Lotion, Skin Firming Cellulite Gel Cream and Skin Firming Cellulite Serum--works on firming and tightening the skin and reducing the appearance of cellulite.  As an added bonus, bottles of NIVEA's key products like Extended Moisture Body Lotion and Sun-Kissed Radiance  contain 25 percent more!  That's more bang for your buck.

Spring 2014 Fashion Week: Lyn Devon's Luxe Ready-to-Wear

We love. Here's a peek at Devon's latest work: Images courtesy of Lyn Devon.

Fashion Week Teams with Junk Food Clothing and NFL

Kristin Cavallari has come a long way since portraying the resident bad girl on Laguna Beach and The Hills , baby.  Not only is she a football wife (her husband is Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler) and a new Mom, but Cavallari is also a rising fashion designer. And for Fashion Week, the reality TV starlet has joined forces with Junk Food Clothing Co. and NFL Women's Apparel to present "NFL Elements." The capsule collection is inspired by Cavallari's laid-back-yet-chic personal style and pays homage to Junk Food's heritage as the Original Vintage T-shirt Company with a contemporary mash-up of spirited nostalgia and modern edginess. “I've been a fan of Junk Food for years and follow the NFL very closely these days,"  Cavallari said in a press statement. " I am excited to work with such prominent brands that I'm personally a fan of and can't wait for everyone to see my first designed collection.“ Novelty details from the collect

Scene from a Zac Posen FW show./Getty Images Although Fashion Week is mostly an invite-only, media and fashion insider affair, check out a clever feature that we just happened to write on for tips on " 5 Free ways to enjoy Fashion Week ." Here's a snippet: Crash the party You didn’t hear this from us. ( Well, actually you did .) But it’s not that difficult to crash the tents (the nickname derived from the structure that housed Fashion Week when it was at Bryant Park and where attendees see shows during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week). While you have to be invited to actually attend a designer’s show or presentation, just making it inside is an experience unto itself. To crash with confidence, familiarize yourself with the  Fashion Week schedule  and show up with a particular sh
