I didn’t believe it either. I never even strived for it I thought it was so far fetched, it wasn’t even something that I searched for. Like so many girls who spent their childhood splashing in water whenever they could and loving every second of it, I allowed my adolescent insecurities and young adult vanity get in the way of my fun. Curly, frizzy beach hair aside, I would get hung up on whether letting loose and going under water was worth having to spend the day concealer free with my blemishes exposed to all!

It may have had something to do with the poolside mojitos that I had enjoyed this one fateful morning at a ritzy LA hotel, but I had decided to let loose and enjoy myself in the beautiful pool that had been tempting me all week. After splashing around and swimming underwater for a good half hour I emerged from the pool to be greeted by my friend’s astonishment when they told me that my make-up was still perfect. It was true. And to stress matters further… It was make-up from the night before (a big beauty no-no, I know, but if it looks good enough sometimes you just have to keep rocking it).

Have I held you in suspense enough?! It’s almost cruel to hold out on telling you what this magic product is! The product of my dreams is Cargo’s liquid foundation! I never would have known about it had I not decided to go into Sephora and get a full consult on make-up from lip gloss to mascara. It goes on totally smooth, virtually eliminating blemishes, pores and lines while not beng so heavy that you need to pile on a whole bunch more make-up to still look “natural”. It has the best consistency and reflecting power I have seen in a foundation, and if I haven’t stressed it enough… LASTING POWER!

The beauty of it is how attainable Cargo products are. The foundation retails for about $30, lasts for about 3-4 months (and that’s me using it consistently everyday), and is carried at Sephora’s so scouting it out is never a problem either.

Now if I could only find something to make my hair silky and straight when emerging from chlorinated/salt water!

…I’ll keep you posted.

CES, JANUARY 7, 2009. The Venetian ballroom in Vegas  at CES Unveiled is swarming with male reporters with bad hair and their take on the future has dandruff. 

Concerned or confused I couldn’t tell but it had something to with the future and my girly sense was tingling.  It’s now January 7th and  I still don’t feel right.

My only recollection is my Zivio BOOM. It operates where I don’t. See my recollection here . Jenny Barchas, Product Marketing Manager at JOBY.COM promised me it would change my life and she was right. Set up was easy and functional, however, perhaps it’s my magnetic personality but I have problems with attachments.  BTW, as far as the attachments are concerned if you like synthetic products, eat the earbuds, otherwise throw  them away. Other than that, it’s simply brillant.  The design is sleek and sexy.  The telescopic boom makes me a ROCK STAR and I like that a lot. 

As I sashay around the the room with my BOOM, I get dizzy and everybody seems to love it. As we speak, I am in front of the Mirage with my Zivio, directing traffic and as the french say, ‘I am oh so courant”, but the police are coming and I must go. 

Off to Pepcom’s Digital Experience later today and OMG, it’s a miracle, it’s at the Mirage…so, assuming I will see you there. BFN from CFB

Always interested in finding out what is really happening in the cities that we crazyfunbabes visit, our curiosity was heightened when we walked along a dark San Francisco street and noticed heavy drapes covering what appeared to be a hole in the wall. We just had to see what was behind that heavy damask.  What we found was Mr. Smith’s and had a blast. Lucky us!

A warm and sexy establishment, Mr. Smith’s has three levels including a main bar area, a VIP lounge and a deep dark dance floor in the basement.

Thanks to the crew running this joint; Dave, Claire and Mark.  We’ll be back!

crazyfunbabes prefer a Gentleman

crazyfunbabes prefer a Gentleman

crazyfunbabes always demand the best, whether it’s diamonds, mobile or men so it tweaked our imagination when we came upon this endangered species campaign at www.savethegentleman.com by Countess Mara, makers of elegant mens’ ties.  To quote from their website “We’re all about the Gentleman.  Some care about the spotted owl. Others about dolphins. We’re 100% committed to the Gentleman”.  One of our more recent Gentlemen sightings was on Rodeo Drive in Hollywood. Actually, we were crossing the street when the most gorgeous guy in a beautiful suit and tie, crossing from the other direction stopped to wish us a great day.  At crazyfunbabe we have to admit we do love a Gentleman, tie or no tie.  A Gentleman is one of our most cherised natural resources.  Thanks Countess Mara for supporting such a noble cause. Now if you’ll excuse us, we have some endangered species watching to do….

One day Crazyfunbabe Rebecca was dreaming about diamonds… the next day she was dripping in them! Dreams DO come TRUE!

Rebecca was wearing over $50 Million dollars worth of diamonds from rings, earrings, to bracelets, to the rarest one of all … A 76.45 carat perfect white Archduke Joseph Diamond lovingly referred to as the “Duke”. Now THAT’s Dripping in Diamonds!

Check out some behind the scenes footage during our Crazyfunbabe Dripping in Diamonds photoshoot.    

Coachella at night

Coachella went off without a hitch this year… Some of us Crazyfunbabes were down there for our first go at the event, and left more than impressed. Not only was it the killer line-up that made the weekend what it was, but you couldn’t walk two steps without seeing the next cutest outfit, talking to someone of interest, or catching a glimpse of celebrities who were there for the music as much as everybody else. In the blazing heat, we loved checking out all the fashion on display and seeing how people kept it stylishly cool. For anyone looking to go next year, a few fashion tips for beating the heat…

  • SUNSCREEN to avoid that terrible burnt nose by day two… and the eventual peeling.
  • Water proof mascara and water-resistant everything else!
  • Breezy clothes that you’re going to feel comfortable in is a must. But remember to bring something to throw on your shoulders if you’re planning on staying to the bitter end! That desert cools down at night!
  • And definitely, if you really want your personal style to standout, MIX-AND-MATCH! There’s nothing worse than seeing a field full of the same dresses from Urban Outfitters and the like when you’re really trying to get noticed!

Various artists had as much fun performing as fans did watching. From classics like Roger Waters, to newbies like Vampire Weekend, that even the constant heat could’nt put a damper on the fun. Some of the favourite shows that we caught were: MGMT, Metric, Justice, Vampire Weekend, The Teenagers, Stars and Gogel Bordello.
