Adult Onesie: The Jean-Sneaker

All I'm hearing these days on The Weather Channel is how in certain northern parts of the country people are getting hit with one cold-ass winter—like minus 20 degrees without the wind-chill. Basically, that means they can't leave the house with even an inch of exposed skin or risk immediate frostbite. Frost-to-the-bite. Whoa. Luckily for…

How To Get The Snooki “Pouf”

We're obsessed with Snooki from MTV's "Jersey Shore" for innumerable reasons, including her signature hair 'do. Called "the pouf," Snooki's been rocking the look since she was 16 years old. Now she's explaining how to get your very own (FYI, it takes her an hour and a half to do, but she isn't the…

So, we all have those days—the days where your hair is slightly greaseball, a little bedhead-y and you just don't want to deal. (And if I had to guess, a few of those downtime-filled days are coming up for everyone? Hopefully.) Instead of just throwing up your hair into a tight ponytail, where it's pretty…

What Are Your Beauty Resolutions?

Normally, I'm not a resolution person—I make them, stick to them for, oh, two weeks and then I forget entirely about them. Fun times. For me, making resolutions usually makes me feel worse about my life—just one more reminder of stuff I haven't yet done. So, imagine my anxiety when reading about beauty resolutions over…

How To Make Your Hair And Makeup Last All Night

The usual New Year's Eve conundrum—you go out looking hot, hair and makeup fixed just so, and by the time midnight rolls around your 'do is a frizz-ball mess (or a flat mess, depending) and your eye shadow is half-way down your face. Rather than constantly running to the bathroom for touch-ups and carrying a…

Gremlin Skirt: Creepy Or Sort Of Cute?

Fashion dispatch from the land of the oddball, bizarre and why'd-they-do-that: The "gizmo" skirt designed by L.A.-based Brian Lichtenberg. "Gizmo" as in the lead character (if you could call him that) from the classic 1984 movie "Gremlins." The skirt is gray tweed with "ear-pockets" and Swarovski crystal eyes—just don't break the three rules (Remember? No…

Could You Give Up Your Beauty Products For Home Remedies?

The challenge: substitute every single "normal" product in your beauty routine for an all-natural, possibly edible, old-fashioned beauty recipe—oh, and no makeup! One brave woman is trying to do just that, and after a week of substituting odor-eating baking soda, apple cider vinegar rinses/milk rather than shampoo/conditioner, and using lemon and apple cider vinegar a…

It's the season for post-holiday super sales and like all of us, celebs are out taking advantage of the slashed prices—check out Charlize Theron with her mom at BCBG and Renee Zellweger has been seen out with boyfriend Bradley Cooper's mother too. I'm planning on hitting up a few sales i…

So Wrong (But Sort Of Right): Jingle Jugs

Remember those gag gifts of singing bass fish on wooden plaques? Well, this is a ridiculous modification of that. Jingle Jugs are fashioned after a life-like set of boobs and shimmy-shake in rhythmic motion to the song "Titties & Beer." They're $10 on sale—imagine that, discounted already! Nothing like a little low-brow lewdne…
