Kiehl's will kick off its second annual  LifeRide to raise money for amfAR, Foundation of AIDS research this morning.  Kiehl's Since 1861 president, Chris Salgardo will lead a group of celebrity motorcycle riders through Rittenhouse Square before the 25-person riding team starts a 1,000-mile, five city, seven day motorcycle trek starting here and ending in New York City.

At this morning's event, which starts at 11 a.m. and ends at 1 p.m,  the celebrities will be in full effect including model, Tyson Beckford and actors Jason Lee, Tricia Helfer, Justin Chatwin, Katee Sackhoff and Teddy Sears. Philadelphia native, Chef Jennifer Carroll of Bravo TV's Top chef will give out culinary samplings as well.  Yum. Yum.

In honor of LifeRide, every customer that walks in the store Kiehl's will donate $5 to amfAR for up to $30,000 total. And Kiehl's will be selling a limited edition Ultra Facial Cream (pictured here) that which 100 percent of the profits will be donated toward amfAR.

I don't know about you, but I love Kiehl's products. One of my favorites is the Creme de Corps, but I'm also a fan of the lip balm and, of course, anything that makes my cheeks tingle. What is your fave Kiehl's product?  Are you headed down to Rittenhouse Square on your lunch break to see the start of the ride?

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
