24 Diner!

Sup World,

Hope your hungry because i have a dish that could possibly change your life :). If you go back into the Austin Archives you will see i once wrote about a 24 hour spot i really liked here called Katz Deli. I’m aware there are more Katz’s in the world than just Austin, but i liked ours until it shut down :0/.

But thats ok though!!!! I found a new 24 hour spot i really like and its called 24 Diner( . Trust me when i tell you this, i only eat one dish when i go there. I’m not sure what your beliefs on Chicken and Waffles are, but chillldddd let me tell you! they have some crazy recipe for this dish ;).

Come on down and i will save you some if your lucky ;0)


Stay Smooth All Summer Long With VEET

I don’t know about you, but I’m very accident-prone and I try to dodge any at-home treatments. But VEET‘s new wax strips and hair removal cream is so fool-proof you wouldn’t be able to screw this up even if you tried.

Veet® Hair Removal Cream with Hydro’RestorTM works in as little as three minutes to deliver smoothness that lasts up to twice as long as shaving. But more importantly, it comes with a pump so you’re not stuck squeezing out a tube with creamy hands. There’s even a cute blade-less shaver to help remove the cream along with those unwanted hairs. This can’t get any easier!

Three dermatologically tested variants are available:
• Butter and Lily for Dry Skin (200ml – $9.49 and 400ml – $16.99)
• Aloe Vera Sensitive Formula (200ml – $9.49 and 400ml – $16.99)
• Suprem’ Essence with Velvet Rose and Essential Oils (200ml $9.49 and 400ml – $16.99)

The new Veet® New EasyGripTM Ready-to- Use Wax Strips for Legs and Body are made for skeptical wax noobs that only get this done when on a super important date. Rub the strip to warm up the wax, peel and slap it on your skin. Then let it rip! The best part about this is you can use both sides of the wax strip (one on either leg) and this process is over in less than 5 minutes. On top of it, it comes with disposable wipes that remove any excess wax while moisturizing your skin with essential oils. Genius!

Three dermatological tested varieties are available:
• Aloe Vera for Dry Skin (20 strips $13.99 and 40 strips – $16.99)
• Vitamin E and Almond for Sensitive Skin (20 strips $13.99 and 40 strips – $16.99)
• Suprem’ Essence with Velvet Rose and Essential Oils (18 strips – $13.99 and 36 strips $16.99)

This might actually make me go bare-legged in the winter. Are you going to try out VEET’s new hair removal collection? Follow me @missamandachen and tell me all about it!


BuffaLO-VE Newbie!

Hello world! My name is Jacqueline Wong and I am a new intern for Socially Bella. I’m from Upstate NY (New Paltz/Poughkeepsie area), but am currently in Buffalo, NY. I love cosmetics, although I don’t wear a lot! I also absolutely looove to travel…I’ve lived in London for 4 months studying abroad and doing an internship. I’ve been to Ireland, Scotland, France, Spain, Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium, and my native country, China. I love learning about different cultures and meeting new people!

On my free time I enjoy shopping, hanging out with friends, watching movies, spending time with my boyfriend, watching sports (I’m a basketball and a recent football fan), acting like a kid even though I’m almost 23, and last but not least, eating and trying new foods! 🙂

I hope to show everyone new trends, ideas, products, things to do, etc. I always encourage trying something new, doing something not in your comfort zone, and thinking outside the box!

Enjoy the rest of your day and take a peek at what I already wrote on Lime Crime Makeup.

Of course, a special thanks to the beautiful Yvonne Kai for giving me this opportunity!

Don’t hesitate to contact me to ask any questions, give me advice, or to just say hii ! <3

Event LOVE: Coty x Philosophy

I had so much fun at the Coty x philosophy event yesterday. Of course this is no surprise, as I absolutely adore the Coty Inc. ladies, and always have an excellent time with them.

Before the event, my knowledge about philosophy was very limited. I knew they specialized in bath and body products, but I had no idea that they are MAJOR players in the skincare game! Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised, and totally impressed by their commitment to giving customers quality products that offer proven results; as well as inspire, and make them feel good at the time.  I love the stories behind this amazing brand, and it’s safe to say that I am officially a “philosophy girl.”

Thank you so much to the Coty Inc team for inviting us, and to Robin White (Director of International & Global Press- philosophy) for the lovely stories, and for giving us the 4-1-1 on philosophy… oh and for the awesome swag!

peace and love
