My Skin Care Routine


The products I used after the jump...

Cerave Hydrating Cleanser

Philosophy Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash

L'Oreal Skin Genesis Eye Serum

MAC Cleanse Off Oil

Philosophy Purity Made Simple

Biologique Recherce P50


Oscillate Wildly

We're all about the sneak-peaks here at Jaime Knows Best!

Today only at, get Lancome's new Vibrating Infinite Powermascara. This item won't be available again until December 2008.

But I don't care if it's not available again until December 2018. I'm not buying it.

The concept terrifies me (7000 oscillations per minute?! NEXT TO MY EYEBALL??) and the product description offends me ("In one easy new gesture, let the vibrating brush combined with an exquisitely smooth formula wrap every lash up to 360 degress." NEW GESTURE? Ya, like I've never held a mascara wand up to my eye and winced.).

Oh, Lancome also wants you to know: "With Oscillation Vibrating Infinite Powermascara, your lashes will instantly appear ultimately extended, exceptionally separated, and spectacularly multiplied in number."

Instantly? Ultimately? Exceptionally? Spectacularly? GO ADJECTIVES!

I'm thoroughly annoyed. But if you want one for yourself, at least use this Sephora Coupon Code for 7 free samples: JULYEYES

Man, I knew I shoulda used protection

Now, usually I don't do this, but, uh... go on 'head an' break 'em off with a lil' previews of the...preview.

THAT'S RIGHT! Toot toot! Beep beep! New Kells tracks have been leaked on YouTube.

If you're not a die hard fan of the Pied Piper (shame on you!), let me give you a peep of his latest lyrical genius and you'll surely be hooked.

Track: Wanna Make A Baby
Lyrics: So let the IPod play, and let me give you all you need, fulfill your fantasies. I'm just trying to knock you up, so you can have your Mini Me.

Track: Might Be Mine
Lyrics: There's a very good chance that it might be mine. Man, I don't even like this girl!
And the first question out they mouth, was did I sleep with the girl? At first I hesitated then said yeah, went onto tell 'em that I hit it raw.

Full tracks after the jump. You know you wanna hit it!

Wanna Make A Baby

Might Be Mine


Gorgeous Gold

I've fallen crazy in love with Alexis Bittar. I want almost everything he (edit) makes. I am trying to decide if I should get anything from his website. What are your thoughts?

Most people know The "American" Office is based upon a British sitcom created by Ricky Gervais and Steven Merchant. It is one of, if not the most amazing sitcom of all time.

The American version has been so successful the show is becoming an empire. Ricky Gervais' blog hints of a Russian version for next year, and links to a Chilean version, which looks like it will be out soon. Enjoy a quick clip of the Chilean "David Brent".

If you're a fan of The Office, check out some other projects from Ricky Gervais I highly recommend:


Shia, How I Love Thee

I don't care if you're an alchoholic ass. I've loved you since you were a little boy...

I saw your potential at a very early age. Some may think my love for you had been illegal, I say I just saw a good thing coming.

You even looked reasonably cute in your mug shot:

Here was/is my other not-so-legal crush:

What can I say - I have an eye!

Superhero Style

My comic book knowledgs extends to my Brian's closet full of cardboard boxes, stuffed with independent books like Blade of the Immortal, Newtype, Neon Genesis Evangelion and his awkward (although humorous) obsession with Asian women (a man can dream, can't he?)

But apparently I should be paying closer attention to his little hobby. This year, Comic Con had over 125,000 attendees. Here is some of the "fashion" from the show...

Is there anything /one that you are such a huge fan of you would glady dress up like them?

For me it would be a toss up between these two:



Bluefly has been peddling Christian Siriano's (Season 4 winner, Project Runway) line for a few days now.

Fans still can't get enough of Christian and, although only released this week, most pieces are sold out. His items are affordable considering what you're buying: novelty, brand, and a piece of reality tv couture memorabilia.

If that sounds like everything you're looking for in a ruffled blazer or lamé shift dress then hit it up! But don't get too excited, Miss Pleasantly Plump. Only skinny girls need apply. If you're not a 2, 4, or 6 then you're not a Christian Siriano woman.

Svelte ladies, I won't hold your good genes and even better lifestyle choices against you. If you're going to make a purchase, use this BLUEFLY COUPON CODE for $30 off $150+ (until 8/9/08):

See all of Christian's looks after the jump.

Go ahead, you know you want it

Santogold is in Philly tonight and OF COURSE I'm so there! I haven't been impressed with her live show yet but I'm not giving up. Hopefully her management stepped it up and got her a live band. Watching her and two backup "dancers" punch and kick to the beat of the CD really isn't a show.

But, hey, I'm in it to win it and really excited for tonight. I don't have Santi White's JAZZERCISE cum M.I.A. fashion aesthetic but I'll give it shot. For those hardcore fans looking to put together a last minute outfit, DONE. I'm linking you to some blogerific fashion finds inspired by Santi.

Every good outfit starts with a solid foundation: LEGGINGS. American Apparel $42

Top that with a vintage inspired, ironic tee. You're so cool you're not afraid to wear something horribly uncool and therefore skyrocketing you into the outer atmosphere of total coolness! Order form, $18

Hip doesn't come cheap. You'll have to pay the price and invest in this Mike & Chris leather jacket from, $876

And for your cute little tootsies, it would be a shame for them to look too dainty so best to don these multi-colored marshmallows from Urban Outfitters, $85

Finally, it's time to BLING IT! When it comes to these sparkly adornments, the message is truly GO BIG OR GO HOME. Door Knocker earrings from, $6.99

You came to rock the mic, and with this on your chain they won't forget it! Hip Hop Ice, $24.99

Bush or Batman?

Jeez - my Brian's comedy troupe posted this video only yesterday on their site. Looks like this game has turned out to be quite a hit:

Comedy Central

Comic Vs Audience


What is Mr. Winkle - and how is he still alive?

I'm a Mr. Winkle fanatic.

I've considered trips to LA just to meet him. I wrote him fan mail, as if I was actually speaking to a dog. Most of the fan mail posted on his site is from children.

I find him to be utterly amazing...

Wikipedia tells me Mr. Winkle is approximately 13 years old and was discovered by his owner many years ago (supposedly near a trash dump!). No one knows for sure what breeds he is a mix of, since he looks nothing like any other dog in the world.

So before you go to that big place in the sky little fella, I'd like to devote some webspace to your beauty:


hey, it's just a seXXXy kind of day!

Any pee drinkers out there looking for a job?

Devendra Banhart = Lucky Man

Reading through my usual suspects today, I found this on one of my favorite blogs The Superficial:

My first reaction...

This Devendra fella has got it good. I've seen shots of him and Natalie Portman walking the streets together:

Here is a signature pube shot:

Crush of Eyeliner

Clueless on how to apply eye liner?  I'm here to listen, with my first video tutorial.

Make sure to check out my eye liner recommendation from the video- available at Sephora.


Melt Proof

During the Summer, I cut my makeup use in half. Why? Everything I put on tends to melt down my face in the sun. I tend to go for a simple winged eye with vibrant lips and stay put foundation.

Here is one of my favorite makeup gurus with some of her Summer tricks:

My personal favorite foundation that is sweat-proof is Mac Studio Fix Liquid . It's the only foundation that lasts all day and night with no touch ups. Trust me, I have tried them all and this is the best, but only use a small amount as it is a full coverage foundation. For example:

The only record I've been REALLY excited about this year is Girl Talk's Feed The Animals. I'm lazy and the internet has killed my attention span. Girl Talk gives me my favorite songs in 2 second stints and makes them sound new enough to love them all over again.

Girl Talk has also inspired one Bunny Greenhouse (aka Chris Beckman, the YouTube mashup videographer not the whistleblower) to set the jams in motion.

He's completed three AMAZING GT videos this month (Still Here, Shut The Club Down, What It's All About). Hopefully we'll be seeing more from him soon.

Oh, and in Chris's words:

"Please don't sue me for copyright infringement. I'm just recycling culture."

Color Me Jersey

Where is our makeup guru, Jaime W(e), when we need her? She's down the shore thinking more about SPF than JKB, I'm sure.

Or maybe she's wondering how to kick her eye makeup up a notch and incorporate some animal prints. Hey, it's Jersey, it could happen!

Well, Jaime W(e), you left town a minute too soon because I just received a life-changing email newsletter from Sephora. They now offer ColorOn's press-on eyeshadow. Heaven help us:

"Now, women everywhere can get instant, professionally "done" makeup in the blink of an eye. ColorOn's EyeEnvy appliqué professional eyeshadows allow you to pick your perfect eyeshadow palette, press on and go." -ColorOn

You can get them at Sephora, cheaper from ColorOn directly, or even cheaper from Hello Gorgeous.

Ladies, press-on eyeshadow party at my place! We down shots, slap on some shadow, and take these babies for a test drive. Philly will be wild with desire, I'm sure. See the looks after the jump. I call camo!!!

They call this a "holiday" look. It's so special, I think I'll premier it at my brother's wedding. He's always been fond of blue dots.

My signature look:

This is almost pretty and takes the focus off her comb-over:
