Want To Enhance Your Appearance With A Vampire Facelift?

OK, the vampire craze has officially gone too far. The original obsession over Edward and Jacob was understandable, “True Blood” still makes us swoon, and it was even OK when “The Vampire Diaries” hit TV. But now, thanks to the newest trend in plastic surgery, vampires officially need to go away. Doctors are offering a new facelift treatment thanks to a cosmetic filler called Selphyl. Sure, nothing new there, as women (and men) looking to appear younger will always resort to cosmetic enhancements, but this is special. Selphyl has been nicknamed the “vampire facelift” because the main ingredient is actually your own blood. Ew. It’s being touted as a more natural option because the ingredients are in fact a part of your own body already, but this is clearly not a procedure for the weak. You’ll not only need to undergo needles for the Selphyl filler, but the doctor will have to withdraw your own blood before the procedure takes place. Isn’t this just like injecting yourself with … yourself? Who wants to pay for that? [ABC] Keep reading »

Thierry Mugler’s New Fragrance, Womanity, Is Awesome

There are a lot of great perks that come with working for The Frisky. The hot tub cubicle. The male courtesans. The shirtless video messages from the Old Spice guy. Previously, I’ve written here about Thierry Mugler fragrances, of which I am a fan, so when a Mugler rep emailed me, asking, “Can we send you some samples of our new scent, Womanity?” I said, “Yes, please!” And so they did.

How Many Times Do You Change Your Hair In A Lifetime?

Celebrities change their hair as often as they change their outfits, thanks to the beauty of extensions and on-call hair stylists. And despite knowing better, regular women attempt to keep up with the ADD tresses of famous ladies, while factoring in budgets and physical hair capabilities. But even with their limitations, women all over will still undergo hair transformations 104 times over in a lifetime! Between highlights, bangs, cuts, coloring, and styling, those little trips to the salon turn into a lifetime of hair changes, about three different colors, and at least two hair updates a year. The reasons are numerous: boredom, breakups, trends, and milestones, to name just a few, but media attention regarding the slight changes in a celebrity’s hair undoubtedly affects our decisions too. Just look at how many people set off for a visit to their stylist, a picture of “Rachel Green” in hand, after Jennifer Aniston debuted her shaggy ‘do, and then followed the many stages of Rachel styles. Personally, I’m in a totally different category. I’ve found my go-to hair ‘do and stick with it, only visiting the salon when my hair needs a trim or split ends are driving me crazy, so I can’t imagine I’ll hit the 104 number in my lifetime. Will you? [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Vitamin Schticks: Lip Smackers For Yogis

Is there any lady out there who hasn’t at some time in her life been a Lip Smackers fanatic? As one, you may be interested to know that the Bonne Bell company has worked with Vitamin Water to create Vitamin Schticks, lip balms based on the sports drinks. With flavors you might recognize like Power-C, XXX, Multi-V, and Focus, they don’t quite deliver the slap of nutrients that their liquid cousins do, but the balms do nourish with vitamin E, and include sunscreen protection.

The question is—do you feel like Vitamin Schticks are a bit of a betrayal to the Lip Smackers brand? Too healthy? Ready to trade in your Dr. Pepper or Blue Raspberry for one of these newbies? [BellaSugar] Keep reading »
