Giuliana Rancic & Fab-U-Wish

One of the most difficult situations a woman can face is the diagnosis of breast or ovarian cancer.   E! Network‘s Giuliana Rancic, a breast cancer survivor, recently visited #HipNJ to help inspire women in their own cancer fight.

#HipNJ‘s Kelly Dillon chatted with Giuliana at Westfield Garden State Plaza‘s Fab-U-Wishes Do Come True “Pink Party”.  The event featured a runway show with the latest trends from Vince CamutoC WonderRobin’s JeanNordstrom, and Karen Millen, with makeup by Kiko Milano. Attendees also were treated to cocktails, raffles, and a special giveaway to grant the wishes of two breast cancer survivors, treating them each to a personalized New York City excursion.

Through Bright Pink’s Fab-U-Wish collaboration with Giuliana, cancer survivors have the opportunity to be treated like an A-list Hollywood star.  Using Giuliana’s insider connections, Fab-U-Wishers can dine with their favorite celebrity, get a glam makeover, or walk down the red carpet!

“I’m grateful to be where I am today – a new mother, feeling strong and healthy, and in a position to help other women now going through what I did,” Giuliana explains. “Along with my friend Lindsay Avner and the team at Bright Pink, I hope to pay it forward and become a “fairy godmother” to other women by establishing Fab-U-Wish. I sure know firsthand that a little bit of fabulous can go a long way to keep you feeling bright during some of the darkest days.”

If you can Fab-U-Wish for it, Bright Pink and Giuliana could make your dreams come true.   On the wishes they’ve granted and how to submit yourself or your loved one, visit their website.

A little bit of “Fab-U” can go a long way to kick cancer’s butt for good!

Maluka

Would you say your style is “edgy” or “artisic”? Or do you appreciate a more safe and comfortable look? Regardless, at Maluka, there is a guaranteed fashion find for all.

Maluka is a Jersey luxe, family owned fashion boutique located in the heart of Bergen County in Wyckoff, NJ.  Similarly to the name of the store, all inventory within the boutique reflects a little bit of each owners’ personality. HipNJ’s Gina La Morte visited the boutique, where she spoke with store owning trio, Marcy, Lulu (Lindsay), and Kari.

Since the store opened its doors in 2006, it has become the go-to fashion place in suburbia. What makes Maluka stand out amongst other stores in the area is their patent sense of small town and community. (The store carries only a few pieces of each hand-picked item from their collections– so there’s no wardrobe repeats at that fab dinner party!)  This simple strategy keeps their business flourishing, because their customers receive an individualized look a part from anyone else.

When you shop at Maluka, whether online or in the boutique, it is their top priority to make sure that you are getting the best the industry has to offer. They want to make sure that you, the customer, have as much fun shopping for yourselves as they have shopping for you!

So get ready to have some real fashion fun and visit their website and begin your #HipNJ shopping spree today!
