Alex's Holiday Viewpoint

Let There Be Light


Rarely do I focus on personal topics on Bungalux anymore, but in light of a confluence of tragedy and holiday, I decided to write a very personal piece in the ever-important week between Christmas and New Year’s. The idea for today’s story started at St. Monica’s church on Christmas Eve. I went to mass by myself, and the sermon began with the priest recounting a story. The true account went something like ...

The Best Plastic Surgeon No One Will Recommend

Dr. Brian Novack


We spend a lot of time recommending things to make your houses beautiful, but what is a beautiful Bungalux without a beautiful owner? We think all our fans our beautiful, but if you look in the mirror and think a tiny nip/tuck is in order today we're gonna point you in the right (and only) direction: Dr. Brian Novack in Beverly Hills. Never heard of him? That’s probably because Dr. Novack’s ... Read More

How to Get that Holiday Glow

Guest Editor: Vanessa Brunkhorst


A glamorous, oversexed female New York publicist makes an impulse decision to get a chemical peel the day she is attending her friend/client’s New York book launch gala. She painfully primps and arrives to the event, circulating the party red-faced, raw, and inflamed; inevitable lobster references ensue and the friend is mortified! Of course the characters are Samantha and Carrie from the Sex in the City series, and that image of a peel ... Read More

Don't Forget About the Offense

Be Thankful


I’m a Packers (10-0) fan. Two weeks ago I was watching football with my best friend who’s an Eagles (3-6 after Week Ten) fan. She was rightfully complaining about the disappointing year the Eagles have had and I said, “You’re telling me. Our defense is so terrible they must have missed the, ‘There’s no strike, we’re playing football this season memo.’” My friend looked me straight in the eye and ... Read More

The Scent of Him

Diptyque Limited Edition 50th Anniversary Fragrances


It happened six months ago, on a cold, foggy Saturday. I had just been accepted to Wharton Business School, and I had flown in for my orientation. My flight had been delayed due to the fog, the hotel didn’t have my room ready, there were no cabs. So I found myself running to class. I’m Type A. I’ve never been a minute late in my life, and I couldn’t conceive of ... Read More

Running Through Florence

Santa Maria Novella Products


It was sometime … well, a long time ago. That trip to Florence was one of the few long holidays I took with my mom. It was important then because it was a parents’ paid trip to see hot Italian guys and eat Spaghetti Carbonara; it's significant now because I'll probably never be able to take a vacation like that with my mom again. I recall bits and pieces of it: I remember staring ... Read More

The Good-Bye Lipstick

Beautiful Is ...


A memory: It was sixth grade and I was in Catholic school. The prettiest girl in my class – who will remain nameless, because she has since Facebook-friended me, still a coup, even now – showed up in hairline-to-neck make-up. She was pretty already, but with blue eye shadow, black eyeliner (done Lady Gaga style – could she have been a prophet too?), rouge, and mascara, Pretty Girl looked almost goddess-like; just like Aphrodite, Artemis, Maia and the ...
