Beauty and Baubles

I just finished working on our annual holiday gift guide (look out for our packed December issue on newsstands any day now), so Christmas shopping is definitely first and foremost on my mind. What exactly am I looking for this year? Gifts that are experiential— like golf lessons, a bed and breakfast getaway or theatre tickets—for those family members who seemingly have everything. Gifts that truly say San Francisco, for those out-of-town relatives. One-of-a-kind presents for those trendsetting girlfriends who love getting the scoop. Or items that have proceeds benefiting a good cause for those save-the-world friends. Check out these local shopping events at some of my favorite stores that I’ll be scouting for those categories this season. Happy Shopping!

Shop at Your Own Risk

Ladies, you might want to save some of that post-Thanksgiving day shopping energy for Goldenbleu’s holiday shopping event at E&O Trading Company from 5 to 8 p.m on November 29. I’ve been to their sample sales in the past, and trust me when I say you’ll come away with a luscious leather bag (or two) at a steep bargain—just prepare yourself beforehand for the all out retail madness. E&O Trading Company, Cinnabar Room, 314 Sutter St., 415-693-0303.

A Shu In

Shu Uemura, in my mind, equates with my simply-can’t-live-without 18K gold lash curler and my wanna-be Madonna faux mink false lashes— so I was a little skeptical when I heard the hubbub about the Japanese cosmetics brand venturing into hair care. I definitely have my preferences when it comes to hair products (whatever I try, I end up going back to Paul Mitchell’s lightweight Super Strong Daily Shampoo and Conditioner, and Bumble and Bumble’s styling lotion for a smooth and shiny finish). Still, as a beauty editor, I’m probably more adventurous then the average person when it comes to using myself as a product-testing guinea pig.

Project Runway’s First Cut

Was anyone else sorely disappointed by the Project Runway Season 4 debut on Wednesday? Not unlike most of us in the fashion world, I was eagerly awaiting the Bravo season premiere to finally arrive, only to see (mostly) one lousy outfit after another come down the catwalk. This first challenge especially should have produced amazing results because the designers were given $50,000 worth of high-end fabrics at their disposal, as opposed to, say, aluminum recyclables or groceries, as in past seasons.
