I’m pretty obsessed with the outfit model Jessica Hart wore to a “Fashion Star” party earlier this week. Everything from the mustard color of her mini dress to the classic trench thrown over the top and the unexpected details like a quirky book clutch and glossy red lips. After the jump, check out how to get the look for less… Keep reading »

Starbucks Is Taking Beetle Juice Off The Menu

Starbucks Stereotypes
What your drink order says about you. Read More »

If you’re a fan of any Starbucks products that have a pinkish hue (strawberry frappuccinos, raspberry swirl cakes, birthday cake pops, etc), I hate to break it to you, but you’ve been eating beetles. More specifically, a red food coloring made from crushed up cochineals, a tiny bug found in Latin America. But now, thanks to an anonymous vegan barista who blew the lid off Beetlegate, sparking a Change.org petition and public outcry, Starbucks has announced that it will be taking the creepy coloring off the menu, effective by the end of June. The cochineal extract will be replaced by lycopene, which is derived from tomatoes. As relieved as I am that Starbucks responded to customer concerns, there is a part of me that’s a little sad I will never be able to order a beetle juice frappuccino. It’s the end of an era, you guys. [Lime Life]

I instantly fell in love this whimsical flower crown, and the tutorial looks amazingly simple. Basically all you do is wrap craft flowers around a thin headband using floral wire: three supplies, about an hour, done. If this look is a bit too much for you, it’s easy to tone it down with less flowers and customize the colors and size to match your tastes. I’d love to try it with just a very small cluster of pansies and a few leaves. That’s what I love about DIY projects–you can always use a tutorial as a point of inspiration and then tweak it to create something that’s totally you. [Moda Veloce]

English professor with an edge? Yes, please! Read More »

I’m a pretty big fan of the colorful jeans trend–the brighter the better!–but this morning, when I saw a guy rocking a pair of bright red skinny jeans, I must admit I did a double take. I hadn’t realized the trend had also been translated to menswear, but a quick online search revealed that colored denim for guys is most definitely a thing. After my eyes had adjusted, I decided I’m a fan of the look. I always love to see guys taking chances with fashion and adding more color into their wardrobe. What do you think of colored denim for men? Love it or leave it? [$90, ASOS]

11 Things Your Hairdresser Really Wants You To Know

Horrible Haircuts
How these very bad haircuts went down. Read More »

It’s hard out there for a hairdresser. They have to be talented, tactful, efficient, and up to date on the latest trends and techniques. They have to be able to create wearable art on people’s heads while discussing salacious celebrity gossip. I’m totally in awe of the people who do this job, and when I go in for a hair cut or color, I’m always wondering how I can make their job easier and walk out with the best possible results. With that in mind, I talked to as many hairdressers as I could find and asked them one question: What do you really want your clients to know? Here are their answers, in their own words … Keep reading »

Guess What? Talking To Yourself Is Actually A Good Thing

Talking To Myself

Do you talk to yourself? Most people do it every once in awhile. Ami does it a lot. Self-talking definitely won’t make you popular on public transportation, but a new study indicates that it will speed up your thought process. Here’s the lowdown: psychologists asked two groups of volunteers to scan a series of photos in search of a specific object. One group was told to repeatedly say the name of the object they were looking for (“banana, banana, banana”), while the other group were told to remain silent. The results? Those zany self-talkers found the items faster, because researchers say when you talk to yourself, “you’re activating visual properties in the brain to help you find them.” So the next time your partner or roommate gets annoyed with your constant muttering, politely remind them that you’re not just talking to yourself, you’re activating visual properties in your brain. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to find my cellphone. “Cellphone, cellphone, cellphone, cellphone…” [Mother Nature Network]
