NARS SILVER ODYSSEY: A Limited-Edition Collection Doing Unlimited Good

I’ve been pretty much ignoring Fashion’s Night Out this year, just like every year, but when I saw this news, it totally caught my attention.  NARS created the limited-edition Silvery Odyssey collection featuring Via Crispi Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner (a fave!) and Space Odyssey Nail Polish.  The metallic silvery colors are celebrated in the campaign image, taken from the archives of famed photographer, Guy Bourdin (another fave).  Bourdin is one of the most significant fashion photographers of the 20th century and also a personal favorite of Francois Nars himself.

On Thursday, September 8th (Fashion’s Night Out), NARS will post Bourdin’s arresting image on their Facebook wall and encourage fans to “Like” the image and on Twitter, NARS followers can tweet their support using the hash tag #SilverOdyssey.

For all who participate, NARS will make a donation to the New York City AIDS Fund, the official charity of Fashion’s Night Out in New York.



Degree Get Into the Move- move your body and win amazing prizes!

My obsession with Degree deodorant is no secret.  I just got home from an exhilarating Zumba session with my fellow LA-based beauty and fitness bloggers and omg, I feel amazing.  I’ve never zumba’d(?) before and I have to admit, it’s actually way more fun than I thought it would be.  What’s the connection between deodorant and Zumba?  Well, let me tell you.  Degree just launched an initiative called Get Into the Move, in honor of their MotionSENSE line.

What’s cool about it is that it’s basically a free (and fun) way to stay active and actually win fun stuff!  You can earn points for the below:

  • Checking in daily
  • Exercise- including walking your dog, swimming, gardening, yoga, etc.
  • Sharing the info with your friends on Facebook
  • Answering trivia questions on fitness and health
  • Finding codes at partner outlets like 24 Hour Fitness


Like I said, you can win prizes for playing the instant win games- prizes like iTunes and Zappos gift cards!  Make sure to also enter the weekly drawing for prizes like girls’ night out , designer shoes, and the BIG grand prize (which, I’m OBSESSED with) – a surf trip to HAWAII, a yoga retreat in Costa Rica or skiing in the Alps! HELLO.

As an added bonus, if you’re one of those do-gooders (which, clearly, I’m not) you can even donate your earned points to two different charities- Girls in the Game or The Challenged Athlete Foundation.

You have until August 23 to “get moving.”  OH and here’s how you can start and earn EASY, EASY points – use code GetMoving052 to start, courtesy of Queen of the Quarter Life Crisis 🙂
