She's Gonna Be a Contender!

Last night, Kimora Lee Simmons was beamed into the homes of QVC audiences nationwide and in less than 10 minutes she let the world know that she is preparing to give the skin care game a run for its money.  The official launch of Shinto Clinical by Kimora Lee Simmons came amidst a star-studded list of players at QVCs The Buzz on the Red Carpet event hosted live in Los Angeles. 

Each designer or stylist showcased during the broadcast had a few minutes to tell the world why their product is the one to buy and Kimora hit it out of the park during her Shinto Clinical pitch.  One of the things that really stuck out to me was the fact that such extensive testing has been conducted on the products in the line.  Last night, Kimora presented Smooth Answer, an anti-wrinkle moisture boost hydrator, and some of the information that she shared about what the product can do to help slow down the effects of aging sounds really promising.  I mean, what woman doesn't want to snatch the hands of time right off the clock?!

Kimora's Pre Baby Phat Influence has named Kimora Lee Simmons one of the 25 most influential Black models of all time and I couldn't agree more.  Dana Oliver writes:
Before Chanel Iman appeared on the covers of American Vogue and Italian Elle, and before Jourdan Dunn became the first black model to walk Prada's runway in over a decade, women like Donyale Luna, Naomi Sims and Beverly Johnson strutted and posed confidently in the face of adversity.

In honor of Black History Month, we take a look back at 25 African-American models who have helped to reshape the standard of beauty.

Baby Phat Goes Gypsy Chic

I haven't used those words here in...forever! Baby Phat. Kellwood trash anymore.  This is why, finding a tweet with the picture above makes me warm and tingly all over.  It's from a show out of the United Kingdom called Big Fat Gypsy Weddings on Channel 4.  And um, I didn't blur the guy's face.  He must have requested that his face not be shown in such close proximity to such an atrocity for all the world to see.

It's not a Kimora Lee Simmons design. Of that you can be sure.  But, I did a quick check of Baby Phat's Twitter and they don't seem to be denying that they put it together, sooooo what does that leave us with?  Hell, is it impossible that they designed it? Nope.  Especially when Walmart won't even let them in the door.  Gotta get those coins how you can and lord knows they have don't have any shame in their game.  Will they admit to designing it is the question?  I'd say not.

Avril Lavigne and Kimora Lee Simmons Team Up

This is major. Major!  I don't know how they'll keep them in stock!  Rocker Avril Lavigne has decided to partner with Kimora Lee Simmons's Just Fabulous to debut her Abbey Dawn collection of shoes and handbags in Spring, 2012.  Abbey Dawn will give JustFabulous members early access to 12 shoes and 5 handbags from the collection.  Some of those will be exclusive to JustFabulous.

300 Dollar Cream Dreams

I don't think Kimora Lee Simmons will ever cease to amaze me!  Wednesday, was the unofficial start to Fall 2012 New York Fashion Week, but there were some pre-start shows and presentations and Twitter was all abuzz. So, I decided that I'd push any Shinto Clinical or Just Fabulous posts out to the masses with a great new tool that I found.  What I wasn't prepared for was this woman going on a blitzkrieg of information!  By the time I finally stumbled out of the house and headed for the gym last night, I felt like I'd put in some hours at a job!

When I got in my car, I thought to myself, "What just happened?"  There was an article in OK! Magazine. There was an article in Juicy Magazine Online. There was an article and competition announced on and a couple other things that I didn't even touch in my email from Just Fabulous!  It was fantastic!

Patience, Grasshopper

Ah yes, the wait.  Some of you have expressed a little...anxiousness for the second question in the Shinto Clinical pre-launch contest.  Have ye no faith?  Kimora Lee Simmons doesn't do most things in a "standard" order, so why should this be any different?  What would be the fun in that?  Keep checking that Facebook page and be sure to tell your friends to go there and LIKE it as well.  And, be ready!  It will happen and hopefully, the collection will be all mine yours. --Sugar

Shinto Clinical Featured in NYLON Mag


Some months ago, I was chatting with one of my pals on Twitter when we started discussing eyelashes and ways to enhance them or to actually grow some new ones.  I expressed my disdain for some new "by prescription only" product that claimed it could help regrow lash hairs because I try to avoid medicines as much as possible.  A medicine to regrow eyelash hairs is something I absolutely would never use.  Besides, mine are very thick and healthy, bless gawt!  So, I don't need it anyway.

But, for those of us who do struggle with a desire for thicker longer lashes, and there are many of us, here comes Kimora Lee Simmons with a solution that does not require a prescription.  Shinto Clinical's LASH is a "clinically proven eyelash growth enhancer" and it's already getting accolades. 

From the Shinto Clinical Twitter page earlier today (click to enlarge):

I love the guy (?) all snuggled up with the tube of LASH in bed!  Pick up a copy of the February edition of NYLON Magazine and check out the full write-up.  I have a feeling we have a lot more like this to look forward to in the coming weeks and months.  I can't wait!  Baby who? --Sugar

Think Fast!

Alright, we've been waiting all week for that second pre-launch contest question on the Shinto Clinical Facebook page and at 9:30pm Thursday, nothing yet.  Which can only mean one'd better be on your A game tomorrow because I have a feeling that question is going to be posted with little time for casual pondering and perusing for a response.  So, snuggle on those thinking caps tonight and get a good night's rest so you'll be ready for the quick draw. Good luck!  I can't wait to see your responses! --Sugar

And, don't forget, there's a great pre-launch promotional happening right now! Shinto Clinical is giving away the full 9 item collection if you have the skills to give the best SMOOTH ANSWER to a hypothetical question or scenario found on  They've already named one winner and there will be another winner this week and each of the next two weeks as well. But, you have to LIKE the Shinto Clinical Facebook page and check in there often in order to be able to enter to win.  Good luck! --Sugar
