Since I'm a HUGE Vince fan and I recommended the Natalie bathing suit from Anthropologie and it was (gasp!) all sold out (boo hissssss!), I needed to tell you guys about this HUGE Vince summer sale for BOYS and GIRLS that's happening.

It's crazy!  You can get this leather jacket for $300-ish instead of $800-ish:

Shut up.  Shut up.

AIR (AND BEYOND): THE BEST PLACE TO SNAG HIGH-END, TRAVEL-FRIENDLY BEAUTY SUPPLIES

By Nora Zelevansky / February 5th, 2010

Two words: carry on (my wayward son).  Okay, that's five words, but you get the gist.

Today, something genius has been launched like so many rockets into the wild blue yonder (or for use while flying through the yonder): www.3floz.com.

Check out my Travel & Leisure blog post on the subject and get a special discount code for all kinds of high-end products, each of which is three fluid ounces and under (so packable in your carry on bag).  Kinda genius.

I, for one, totally always pack mini-versions of all the precious products in my arduous beauty regimen when I travel.  Then I stuff my bag full of eight pairs of shoes and have to check it anyway.

Options, my friends. Options.

ONLINE (AND BEYOND): THE BEST CRUMPLED TWENTY

The Best Link Today:

If you're anything like me, you spend significant amounts of time marveling at people's inappropriate Facebook status updates from "Sally is deeply depressed and crying out for help" to "Tom is sleeping on the bathroom floor between puking bouts."

Anyway, I heartily approve of this website's "How To Suck at Facebook" instructions (although maybe he should have added something about the new "post your celebrity doppelganger" trend).  Why does everyone think they look like Kursten Dunst?

Now, I'm off to shamelessly "market" my site.  Become my fan!  Become my fan!  BECOME MY FAN!!!

LA (AND BEYOND): THE BEST L’OCCITANE BUSINESS CLASS GIVEAWAY

By Nora Zelevansky / October 21st, 2009

Guess whose back?  Back again . . .

Okay.  I'm going to stop before I start rapping about something really disturbing like pain killer addiction or my ex-wife Kim.  Me rapping in general might be kind of disturbing.  Anyway, I'll also stop before I start referring to myself as SLIM LINTY.  Really it would be SLIM "but could stand to lose a couple pounds" LINTY.

Anyway, sorry I've forsaken you all for so long, but I was off traveling the high seas in search of treasure (cause that sounds way better than traveling for work).  I was in Tahiti and Bora Bora though, which I HIGHLY recommend, and then NYC.  But more on that later.

I figure we should ease back in and start slow.  I know I've hurt you before, so I need regain your trust, right?  So, I'll just tell you about the flight over.  Or let me amend that: I won't tell you about the eight plus boring hours of actual flying, but I will share tasty tidbits about the goody bag they offer to all the B.C. travelers on Air Tahiti Nui.

First of all, I should preface this by saying, I don't give a hoot about eye masks and the like. I don't even like them, as–when paired with ear plugs once in Mexico City–I awoke and panicked, thinking I was blind and deaf (and clearly dumb as dirt).  That last part was true.  Still.

Anyhoo, this travel ammenity bag has the usual ear plugs, eye mask, tooth brush and paste, comb, Smints etc.  But it also had a selection of L'Occitane products!  A indidvually packaged "Cleansing Cloth" refreshes, a mini "Cooling Hand Cream Gel" is heavenly, since your skin does start to get really dehydrated after an eight hour stint in recycled air.  But, best of all, the airline gifts these amazing "Shea Butter Anti-Drying Lip Balms" and I am OBSESSED!

Now, you know I really like a lip balm and I LOVE shea butter, so it's no surprise, but this is hands down one of my favorite Chapstick alternatives ever.  It's big and fat and the texture isn't sticky, but it's thick enough to stay on.  I just ADORE it!

So, thank you Air Tahiti for the lip balm.  Oh, and for getting me safely to Tahiti.  That was good too.
