Kate Spade: In Memoriam

Post a comment!

I've had many thoughts swirling around since Kate Spade's untimely suicide last week. I wanted to take some time to put them into words -- and I think I've finally figured out what I need and want to say about this tragedy.

I'm fairly certain every woman can remember her first Kate Spade purchase. Maybe it was a wallet. Maybe it was a bag. Maybe it was a pair of shoes. For me, the first was the aforementioned wallet - a bright green zip-around envelope wallet with 14 credit card pockets and a clear ID window, to be exact. I bought it at the Kate Spade outlet at Woodbury Common in 2003.

You know how you build something up in your mind and just hope beyond hope that it will be as worth it as you dreamed? Well, in the case of Color Camp and my latest manicure, I got even more than I bargained for — because my experience from start to finish was, in a word, MANITASTIC.

Who here loves cake? [RAISES HAND ENTHUSIASTICALLY] Yeah, I don't just like cake. I LOOOOOVE cake. The cakier the better, honestly! And little individual cakes made just for one person? Even better! So when I discovered Cake Jar Nation, I immediately had to try it.

A few days ago, I had the pleasure of attending the Beauty and Complexion Bootcamp with Veil Cosmetics and Kerry Herta at Nigel Beauty Emporium. Kerry is a longtime makeup educator and founder of Colour Box Makeup Studios -- and she's also the makeup designer and department head behind the promo campaigns for all seven seasons of American Horror Story. Her master class focused on tips and tricks for a flawless complexion, creating the basic makeup look that really isn't so basic after all. I'm thrilled to bring you a behind the scenes look at what I learned from Kerry's master class!

Raise your hand if you like to follow amazing skincare experts on Instagram. Well, I most certainly do -- and Bobby, the absolute genius behind Skintrovert, is the real deal. His reviews are spot on, and his conversational tone just draws you in immediately. I discovered his Instagram awhile back and I am obsessed with his honesty and ability to really tell you what you need to know about the products he tries. He's a refreshing change of pace from so many influencers and content creators who are just out there to sell themselves, rather than really help you find products that work for you. Read on to find out how he named his OG blog and Instagram, what made him fall in love with skincare, the exfoliator he can't live without and so much more.
