We All Deserve Something Beautiful

We can’t wait to see “Eat Pray Love” tonight, but in the meantime, Dogeared is keeping us occupied. The jewelry company has a line of delicate trinkets and jewels in honor of the film. We’re particularly taken with this purple macrame bracelet. The bright purple color mixes up standard metal chain bracelets. Wear it alone, with your watch, or with a bunch of bangle bracelets. We couldn’t agree with the message more: “I deserve something beautiful.” That’s right.

Three Ways To Smacking Lips

Sometimes, a lip stain just isn’t enough. This trio from Bare Escentuals contains a lip liner, lipstick, and lip gloss all in one package. So you can play around with different combinations depending on the look you want. Wear just the lipstick or gloss for an office-appropriate look, and then get a shiny, pigmented pout with all three for a night out on the town. We recommend this mauve color, which matches a variety of skin tones really well. And yes, lip liner is back!

Yet, there’s something about them we just can’t stand. Perhaps it’s the people we must share such a tiny space with? No one is completely comfortable in the confined cubicles, ourselves included. Call us picky, but sometimes, you just can’t win on a lift. Find out which elevator style really grinds your gears after the jump. Keep reading »

Celebs And Their Disney Doppelgangers

Sometimes, the world just makes perfect sense. Nordstrom is having a sale, Ali picked Roberto on “The Bachelorette,” and some actors are meant to play animated Disney characters. PasteMagazine.com hit these doppelgangers on the head. Angelina Jolie is Vanessa from “The Little Mermaid,” the human temptress that was in actuality evil Ursula; Seth Rogen‘s goofiness makes him the perfect Baloo the Bear from “The Jungle Book”; and RuPaul and the Sea Witch clearly share a hair stylist. We know that some celebrities look like animals, but these fictional character resemblances are just uncanny. How did we never see this before? Check out all the comparisons at Paste Magazine.
