Announces the Search for
Tomorrow’s Top Fashion Designer Contest
Be Smooth On and Off the Runway
Skintimate Studios will give women, 18 years of age and older, a once in a lifetime opportunity to go behind the scenes with New York based designer Mara Hoffman and see what it takes to make it in the fashion industry. Skintimate®, the #1 women’s shave prep brand, announces today the search for the next generation of female fashion designers with the launch of the second Skintimate Studios Ready for Everything design program online at www.skintimatestudios.com.
“With the upcoming launch of the new designer cans by Mara Hoffman, we thought it would be a great idea to do our own search for tomorrow’s fashion designers,” says Joanna Di Domenico, Brand Manager. “Today’s young woman looks to Skintimate to give her the smooth confidence to be their best she can be. We are thrilled to discover fresh talent and offer them a once in a life time opportunity.”
“I’m absolutely excited to be partnering with Skintimate both on the can designs and the Skintimate Studios program,” says designer Mara Hoffman. “I think it’s amazing that Skintimate is doing this search to help young talented designed find their way into this industry.”
From February 9th to March 23rd, aspiring designers will visit www.skintimatestudios.com and enter for a chance to win a two week internship with Hoffman helping her team prepare for her 2012 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim show. Contestants will upload a female dress design that conveys the theme “Ready for Everything.” In addition to the design, girls will need to answer two questions: Explain details of your design and why it represents the theme “Ready for Everything,” and share what unique qualities you posses and bring to the fashion world. Designs and essays will be judged for both versatility and original creative expression.
Skintimate, along with Hoffman, will select ten final designs which will be announced online April 21st. The finalists’ designs will premier on the Skintimate Studios website from April 21st through May 18th allowing America to cast their vote for their favorite. The winning designer will be announced online May 25th and will be given the chance to spend two weeks with Hoffman and her team in New York and Miami as she debuts her line at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim show in Miami. The nine other finalists will receive a deluxe fashion prize pack filled with must-have items to help kick start their fashion careers.
In addition to the internship search, fans 13 years of age and older can also visit the Skintimate Studios website to enter a sweepstakes for a chance to win a Mara Hoffman scarf and a grand prize for one lucky girl and a guest/chaperone to go to Miami and attend Mara’s show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim show in July.

GAH, I am sooooo obsessed with all that is Liberty Prints and their loveliness! Are you excited about spring florals as much as I am? Check out some of the new patterns right off the runways!
I want to buy and make everything with these prints. I am sure we will see a lot of spring prints coming to our local shopping malls. I will just have to make sure that I remember what inspired me when I go shopping. Check out these watches from the Liberty store in London. Dreamy, right?
I was inspired to write this post due to a stylin’ blogger from the UK, Style Bubble. She took Liberty prints and made them her own. I applaud her in cuteness and uniqueness!
“Liberty have consistently taken advantage of their rich fabric resources to create exclusive items or collaborations, all of which are conveniently available on their website including these Superfuture sunglasses that will plunge me further into Liberty print addiction.” -Style Bubble

My friend recently brought me a pair of spa socks as a gift and I was like, what the heck are these? Well, I’ll tell you what they are. They are amazing. Who needs to slather on the lotion and then put on your socks when there are spa socks. Now that I have tried them, I don’t think I could go another Winter without them. Dry feet? No more. Check out these different spa socks on the market, which tout themselves to moisturize your tootsies, no problemo!

Here let me show you some examples of what kind of special treats you can find online and maybe even at local boutiques and craft fairs close to you. It’s exciting to know you may be wearing something one of a kind and made by someone’s hands. This doesn’t mean I have sworn off shopping at the mall but I like to mix it up a little bit, you know?
