Kiehl’s Wines, Dines and Wows Visiting International Journalists

From a modest apothecary in New York’s East Village, Kiehl’s has grown to international brand-name status and a New Jersey factory where 10 new products are hatched each year. But there’s no rest for those toiling in the world of wicked complexions.

And so, the company recently flew in a gaggle of international journalists, put them up at the Mondrian in Soho and raced them through a vertiginous series of events. If the rest of the resulting coverage is anything like that of Amanda Linnell, a reporter for New Zealand Herald‘s Viva magazine, mission accomplished!:

After lunch we’re off to learn about a new men’s product, Facial Fuel Heavy Lifting Cream, which launches in New Zealand next week. Tucked away at 137 Perry St (just down the road from Carrie Bradshaw‘s apartment in Sex and the City) is the Cooper Classics Collection of vintage cars and here we meet guest speaker, Kiehl’s ambassador Doug Stoup.

I’ll read the LA story and be like, “What was I thinking? Who decides we’re gonna follow Suge Knight?”…

WSJ Boards the Whitney Cummings Comedy Train

While today’s Wall Street Journal piece about stand-up comedienne Whitney Cummings is anchored to some weekend NYC comedy club appearances and was written by east coast correspondent Marshall Heyman, it’s really all about LA.

At the irritatingly young age of 28, Cummings is sitting pretty in a new Valley adjacent home, preparing a pair of TV sitcom pilots for CBS and NBC while doing run-throughs for her upcoming E! talk show Whatever Whitney. The CBS pilot is a collaboration with Sex and the City co-creator Michael Patrick King, a source of both great inspiration and a one-of-a-kind housewarming gift.
