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 »
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 »
“I’m very happy with myself. For me, my story behind it was making young people actually think before they do something. For me it was waiting. It’s the message I actually had to say. When people found out about it, one person asked me and I just couldn’t lie. I didn’t feel the reason to lie. I’m proud of myself that I waited. That’s 10 years I was like ‘I hate this top. It does not fit. I hate this top.’ … When I initially thought about that, I was 17 years old. That’s a ridiculous age to make a decision to do something different to your body.”
– Kelly Rowland‘s message to young people is to wait until they’re older to alter their bodies. The funny thing is, none of her fans knew she was waiting 10 years to get breast implants until she actually had the surgery. Why can’t celebrities just say, “I really disliked this part of my body and had the funds to change it, so after years of frustration, I did something about my insecurity,” and leave the whole message to young people excuse out of it? But at least Kelly has the courage to admit she has breast implants, unlike some other celebs who altered their bodies at a young age and pretend otherwise. [TheYBF] Keep reading »
Macabre though it may sound to call Morticia Adams a major fashion inspiration, that bitch was fierce. And her return to pop culture in “The Adams Family” musical has brought with it a whole new way to emulate Mama Adams.

So next time you’re deciding between Ballet Slippers and Wedding Bells for your fingers, take a trip to the dark side with Bone Chilling White, Blood Curdling Red or Midnight Tango, instead. It’s what Morticia would want. [Beauty Blogging Junkie] Keep reading »
I was 10 years old and all I wanted was boobies. I wanted them so badly I would buy balloons, fill them up with water and then stick them in my shirt. I wasn’t even developed enough to be wearing a bra, and sure enough I owned a “training bra” so my miraculous boobies, that my mom told me I would eventually grow, would have a place to go. Regardless of how badly I wanted breasts, I never ever stuffed my bra with toilet paper. I was smart enough, even at the age of 10, to know that stuffing my bra with paper towels not only looks fake, but it feels fake, and is humiliating if and when it falls out of your shirt. How do you possibly explain the tissues that are sticking out from your shirt? I figured you don’t. Not that anyone was touching my breasts at 10, but bumping into a boy in gym class with paper towel boobies was not something any boy would ever let me live down and definitely not a risk worth taking. But the girl I saw while I was out the other night, didn’t see anything wrong with stuffing her bra with paper towels.
