One of my absolutely favorite singers is Mariah Carey. Not only is she incredibly talented, but there’s something about her that is so real and authentic. Yes, Mariah has had a reputation of being a diva, but this girl has had quite some struggles, and through it all, she remains hopeful and incredibly faithful and spiritual. For that, she is an inspiration. I think that is one of the reasons why I am such a fan of hers. I listen to her music and not only does she have a gorgeous singing voice, but so many of her songs are so meaningful. I believe “Make it Happen” is so inspiring that it is the first track on my running mix.
So, of course, I was thrilled when I first heard that Mariah was working in collaboration with HSN (Home Shopping Network) to create a line of jewelry, shoes and fragrances. When I knew that she would be appearing on HSN earlier this month with a new range of products, I was sure to tune in. Since Mariah is currently pregnant with twins (a girl and a boy), HSN flew to her Los Angeles home to shoot the spot live, and I watched riveted to hear how she was feeling and talk about her products.
Well, maybe I was suckered, but I did end up purchasing a pair of her heels: Mariah Carey Sparkling Studded Platform Heel. She did such a good job selling it! But I do love it – it is absolutely Mariah – sexy, glamorous and a bit over the top, with a perfect and fun party heel, in fact a 5 ½” heel with a 1 ¼” high platform! Woohoo – I’m going to be tall! Upon Mariah’s recommendation, I bought the black snakeskin style and it looks divine! And best of all, well worth its price. I bought my pair for $79.90 (event price), but the everyday HSN price is $99.90 (vs. a retail value of $112.46). Thank you Mimi!
