The irony is that vanity is what gets a lot of us ladies to start smoking. We take it up most likely ’cause we think we look sultry while puffing away, or we like that lighting up keeps us from snacking so our jeans look sexier on our rumps. Well, according to a study just published in the British Journal Of Health Psychology, said vanity is perhaps the most effective tactic for getting women to quit smoking, too. Staffordshire University researchers used state-of-the-art age progression technology to show 47 women, between the ages of 18 and 34, what their faces would look like in the future if they continue to smoke. The horrifying sight of smoking-induced wrinkles on their future faces prompted two-thirds of the subjects to vow to quit. Keep reading »

We’d be happy with having this red tartan bag just because it’s perfect for transporting our tiny valuables–like our favorite lipstick, coins, or jewelry. But MAC sweetened the deal by adding VIVA GLAM V lipstick and lip gloss to the ‘Tis Noble to Give VIVA GLAM Lip Bag. What’s even better? All proceeds go to the MAC AIDS Fund to help support people living with HIV/AIDS.
The 30-Day Cellulite Challenge is almost over! Ah, cellulite. We hardly knew ye. For the last 28 days, I’ve been using Karin Herzog‘s anti-cellulite creams. Find out what happened after the jump. Keep reading »
Meet Kaylin Ransom, a 22-year-old resident of Ocala, FL. She spends her weeks doing hair and her weekends in Lake County Jail. The aptly named Ransom is under a plea deal for felony battery and child abuse, and whenever she checks into her “weekend home” she has to take a new mug shot. So following in the footsteps of Naomi Campbell, who famously wore haute couture while performing her community service with the New York Department of Sanitation, Ransom gets glam, in her own way, before taking her mug shots. She’s known for her lace-front wigs, extensions, false eyelashes, and photo shoot-worthy makeup. Now, if Ransom had lesser charges, I’d say this was a unique way of giving the system the finger, but charges of battery and child abuse warrant a lot more repentance, in my book, than getting fly for a weekly jail stay.
