NYX Cosmetics comes to the East Coast!

As a huge fan of NYX Cosmetics, I was thrilled when I found out that their first East Coast store opening would be at one of my local malls – Willowbrook Mall in Wayne, NJ.

I had the oportunity to attend the Grand Opening on February 18th and the store is absolutely gorgeous.

Some of the activations NYX consumers can come to store and experience include:

NYX Beauty Bar – consumers are to sit at the beauty bar, choose from a number of different of-the-moment tutorials i.e. strobing, ombre lips, etc. and then re-create those looks using the iPads in front of them that feature their favorite beauty influencers/vloggers taking them through the look step-by-step
NYX Shadow Bar (first one to launch was at the East Coast Willowbrook location) – consumers can create their own custom palettes in store
NYX Lip Bar – a bar of NYX’s most beloved lip colors in a variety of formula options to choose from i.e. soft matte lip cream, butter gloss, etc.

The NYX Willowbrook opening marks the 5th opening in the US (4 in California previously); globally, NYX has opened stores in Canada, France, Italy and Spain. Additional openings are planned throughout the remainder of 2016, with stores in the Southeast and Midwest scheduled in the next few months.

If you are from the North Jersey area, visiting NYX Willowbrook is a must!

Here are some additional photos from their Grand Opening:

Super Bowl Treats!

The whole state of New Jersey is EXTRA amp’d this year for Super Bowl? Why? …well, in case you have been living under a rock – it is taking place in our neck of the woods this year. That is right — Super Bowl is taking place in New Jersey NOT New York! 🙂

The best part of Super Bowl Sunday, besides the game, is the FOOD at the parties so I wanted to share some tasty treats you could serve your guest and that you can whip up and bring them to whatever party you will be attending.

Last night the EPIC 6 hour long Sandy Relief concert took place in front of a crowd of over 13,000 people at MSG along with 2 Billion viewers that got to watch the concert on 37 tv stations throughout the US and more than 200 others worldwide. It was also streamed on more than 30 internet sites.

While most of us could have done without this outfit…

I applaud ALL the artist and host that took time out to help NJ/NY in this time of dispar. The performances were incredible and the love and support was more than anyone could have imagined.

The lineup included: Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, Bon Jovi, Roger Waters, The Rolling Stones, Alicia Keys, Kanye West, The Who, Billy Joel, Eddie Vedder, Chris Martin, Michael Stipe, Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton, Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear and there was endless host such as Jimmy Fallon, Chris Rock, Kristen Stewart and Stephen Colbert just to name a few.

“The ocean I used to dream about is now their worst nightmare.” -Billy Crystal

“Tonight, this is a prayer for all my struggling brothers and sisters in New York and New Jersey.” -Bruce Springsteen before performing My City of Ruins

“When are you going to learn you can throw anything at us – terrorists, hurricanes. You can take away our giant sodas. It doesn’t matter. We’re coming back stronger every time.” -Jon Stewart

“Hallelujah, Sandy screw ya, We’ll get through ya, Cause we’re Neeeew Yorkers.” -Adam Sandler

The ticket sales alone  have already raised $35 million!

121212 Concert for Sandy Relief

Many people in the NJ/NY area woke up on October 30th not only to massive flooding, down trees and no power but some woke up to everything they have worked for their whole lives – GONE.

I for one am a NJ Girl, born & raised. I don’t think a lot of us really appreciated sites such as the boardwalk that we spent so many summers on until we had to view it like this…

The pictures of people’s homes and businesses gone is devastating. The news stories about the children as well as the men & women who lost their life during this super storm is something no one will ever forget. Normalcy is something that will not return for a while but the amount of support from people and volunteer groups is incredible. Those volunteers are truly the sunshine after such a dark  time.

While listening to Elvis Duran I heard them discussing this concert
