With stick on polish being a popular trend, I was excited to be given the opportunity to review Dashing Diva’s Designfx nail appliqués.
Designfx is a new nail appliqué line that is comprised of 36 unique designs. These designs include bedazzled 3D bling and chic prints for your fingers and toes. The appliqués don’t require heat lamps for application or acetone for removal making them easy to put on.
Now that Downton Abbey is done, I’m in some serious need of a good ol’ fashioned love story. I’ve been looking forward to Freida Pinto‘s next film, Trishna, due out next Friday, but now I, along with you, our Audrey readers, can watch the movie for FREE and talk to Freida Pinto herself about the film!
Drinking water and staying hydrated are the most important things you could do for your skin and body – especially when the days are hotter and sunnier. This is why my Ello water bottle in dark gray is one of my 5 favorite things this summer. Not only does it help my skin and body, as the 20 oz. bottle forces me to drink at least that much each day, but it also helps the environment. The other cool thing about this bottle is, besides that it only costs $10, that it’s BPA free!
In addition to staying hydrated, moisturizing is also important for your skin. The drastic change in the weather can do all kinds of crazy things to your body. I like to moisturize with Gold Bond Ultimate’s Silk Softness Sheer Ribbons body lotion in “touchably soft skin.” After sampling one pump of this lotion at a local Walgreens, this is the only lotion I’ll buy. It truly leaves your skin feeling silky smooth – plus it smells great.
Erica Wu is just like any other 16 year old—she’s preparing for the SAT, she loves watching Glee, and she thinks Michael Phelps is hot. The only difference is that she might just get the chance to meet Phelps when she heads to the London Olympics as a table tennis player for Team USA.
Dedication is an attribute that every Olympic athlete needs and Rena Wang is no exception. Having taken the past two years off from school in order to train rigorously in badminton, Wang’s hard work is finally paying off.
The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, or LACMA, is not only providing local LAists and visitors with visual art, but they’re now providing the art of music as well. Their new hip-hop concert series, “Through the Mic,” is on the third Thursday of every month through October 2012 at 8 PM. On Thursday, June 21st, for their second event, the Korean-American rapper, Dumbfoundead, along with other hip-hop artists like Gizzle and Medusa, performed live in front of LACMA’s renowned Urban Light sculpture. Before the three hip-hop artists performed live under the night sky, Audrey Magazine was able to catch Dumbfoundead (DFD) and have a little chat with him. When we asked him if he wanted to take picture with a “gangster” pose he turned down the offer and said, “No, I hung up my gangster title a long time ago,” we knew that he was ready to show more of himself than just his rapper image.
Although the interview lasted about 10 minutes we quickly discovered that DFD wasn’t just this tough and swagger-like Asian-American kid who could spit sick rhymes. Instead, within those 10 minutes he revealed that he was quite the hopeless romantic and the “politician.” From talking about his inspiration for his latest EP “Love Everyday” to the politics of South Korea, we thought we were talking to somebody else instead of the usual Asian American rapper we see on YouTube. However, we saw his rapper and entertainer reputation on stage shortly after as he performed songs like “Bubba Kush,” “Cell Phone,” and “Are We There Yet?” Dumbfoundead, along with his band and Breezy Lovejoy, turned up the energy at the usually quiet museum. The crowd of all ages and ethnicities went wild when Dumbfoundead showed his true talent: freestyling.
Formal Audrey covergirl Frieda Pinto is starring in a new movie, Trishna, opening in select US theaters on July 13th. The film, directed by Michael Winterbottom and co-starring Riz Ahmed, is a profound commentary on the tension between the old and new generations in India based on the classic novel, Tess of the D’Urbervilles. The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and Tribes Film Festival with high hopes.
Trishna is a story of a peasant woman who falls in love with a handsome and wealthy young man. However, this is not the typical Cinderella story, as Trishna faces many obstacles. Her world is changing at an incredible pace and culture clashes arise, and she is forced to choose between her familiar past and exciting future. The trailer leaves you wanting more, showcasing Pinto’s acting abilities, an amazing soundtrack, and the many charms and sides of India audiences have yet to see.

I took a dream vacation last month. Not to some tropical hideaway surrounded by crystal clear waters. Not to a romantic European capital overflowing with crumbling palaces and fine wine. No, I went on a shopping vacation. To Korea.
For me, Seoul is the place to go to shop. Tokyo – too expensive. Singapore – too western. Hong Kong – too inconsistent. While Seoul may not be the bargain it used to be, the quality of goods and quantity of goods make it a shopper’s dream. So when my husband told me he was going on a once-in-a-lifetime Pebble Beach weekend with the boys, I took that as my cue to plan a once-in-a-lifetime-solely-to-shop-without-the-hubby trip with my mom.
