Do you want to get rid of wrinkles while simultaneously looking like a NASA astronaut? If you answered yes, then we have the product for you! Introducing “The Face Trainer,” is a mask-helmet that you put over your whole head which creates resistance so when you move your facial muscles or make an expression, you are “exercising” your face, making your skin toned and tighter. Flabby cheeks are a thing of the past! Keep reading »
Throughout the ages women have gone to great pains to get showstopping and eye-dropping cleavage. The corset was rough, stuffed-toilet paper bras were prone to discovery and the push-up bra is just a bit too obvious. According to the peeps from My Beautiful Breasts, however, your cleavage woes are over. This kit ain’t just your average bra-filling and lifting, ladies. We are talking about painting on your boobies, or lack thereof.
We’ve scene this trick before: use makeup to create contours on our bust line the same way we use bronzer to fake sharper cheekbones or those weird airbrushing techniques that create faux six-pack abs. Except, this ain’t just a wish of bronzer we are talking about. Eye shadow and blush come off pretty easy, but the bust stain can stay on for up to five days! And, maybe I am just bitter because I can’t draw a stick figure, but painting-on your boobies sounds pretty complicated and complex. Chances are I would mess it up and have some pretty busted looking buhbies for a week.
I think I’ll just stick to toilet paper, thank you very much. [$69, My Beautiful Breasts Kit, ItCosmetics.com]

Well…what your boss doesn’t see won’t hurt her. Here are a few ways to keep your fabulous fashionista under wraps until 5p.m. Keep reading »
We are all going through major “Project Runway” withdrawal now that the show has been moved to Lifetime. Every episode of the thrown-together Bravo knock-off “The Fashion Show” is equivalent to a so-so episode of “Runway,” but the real nostalgia comes from the longing for “Runway”‘s host Heidi Klum. Here are the top four reasons why Kelly Rowland is no Heidi Klum.

I know that you know that you are supposed to wear sunscreen, and yet, I have the sneaking suspicion that you occasionally “forget” the SPF. I am going to skip the lecture because you have already heard it and from better authorities than me. But I am going to tell you about four fun and unusual ways to get your daily dose. Keep reading »
Summer is on its way now, so out with the flannels and in with pjs that have more sex appeal!
- These pink flamingo bottoms by C & C California are perhaps not sizzling hot, which is why I will leave it to you to decide what goes on top…if anything at all. [$32, C & C California, Bluefly.com]
- I will most certainly be happy in this cute nightdress from Scanty. The length and drawstring have a certain kittenish look, but the happy faces keeps the serious meter down. [$35, Scanty, Bluefly.com]
- Leopard print…my oh my, this is daring! Leopard print is high on rawr factor, but the jersey tops and bottoms make this look more of a wink-wink kind of sexy. [$35, Tart Intimates, Bluefly.com]
- Python. The world alone makes me think of a deadly sports car. This pink python number will certainly get hearts racing and I can still feel pretty in pink. [$66, Natori, Bluefly.com]
