City Pulse

By Amber Roniger

I know I’m dating myself by admitting this, but I just don’t care. The first thing that comes to mind when I hear “Members Only” is a red or blue slicker jacket (I had the coveted silver, too cool for school), cunningly cinched at the waist, rustling in the breeze and adorning the likes of David Hasselhoff on “Knight Rider.” So very cool man, so 1970’s radical.

Nooooo! Forget the slicker fad that faded out with entre of Reganomics, here’s why Members Only of the New Millennium is so much cooler, man… all the discounted stuff! Utopian bath lotion, elfish cosmetics bags, Softlips (okay, that’s a contest, but it’s free to enter!), Nikki Hilton (or rather, a discount at one of the salons she frequents), deep therapy (actually, it’s a face masque, but it’s still good for your psyche), a coveted membership to the Bad Gal Club (I know you’re already a card carrying member, but this makes it far badder since it gives you free make-up goodies from Benefit), and lots of other fetching bits and bobbles.

Okay, I know NYChicas are swift, you already knew I was talking about the Beauty News Members Only Section, of course you did; I don’t have to explain everything to you (or am I bestowing too much credit?).

Savvy Beauty News Mavens, heed this warning: do not become a shopping lemming and miss out on all the good booty! Sign up and get oodles of heads-up on specials and discount codes by perusing our groovy listings. All the kool kids are doing it!
