There’s no mistaking red lipstick for low-maintenance makeup, but nothing pulls a look together quite like a pretty pop of crimson. It’s especially effective in the summer, because not only is it chic, it’s also distracting. If you’ve got a pair of sunglasses and a red lip color that you love, a full face of makeup is a non-factor. Whether you’re blonde, brunette, pale, olive- or dark-skinned, partial to pink, or obsessed with orange-leaning shades, no matter — cull some summer red lip inspiration from these 10 celebs.
Will and Jaden Smith appeared on Thai TV show “The Woody Show” to promote their new film, “After Earth.” You can watch the full segment here, but let me give you the big highlight. The host asks Will, “Have you ever kissed your son on Thai television before?” Will replies, “I can kiss my son.” Then he grabs Jaden and kisses him on the mouth. There appeared to have been tongue involved.
Jaden responded to the kissing incident saying, “[That] happens all the time.” I say, to each family their own.
These two aren’t the only famous family members who like to lock lips. Click onward to see other celebrity family members caught kissing. [Hello Beautiful]
DIY blogs get me every time, because they contain the promise that I can actually do it myself. Hours of clicking on link after link from one lifestyle blog to another will inevitably lead me to a soft-lit, delicate DIY necklace, beguiling in its simplicity, begging to be made. I become convinced that I have a steady hand and clear artistic vision, only to discover the direct opposite when I sit down in front of my neatly -assembled workplace. My hopes, so high and lofty, are stymied by a minor detail, like my household’s lack of an iron, or my inability to find the scissors, and I retreat to the couch and purchase earrings online, while watching “So You Think You Can Dance.” This summer, I’m changing the game and you should too! I’ve combed through the DIY blogosphere to bring you the cutest, awesomest DIY jewelry, home-goods and clothing options. Grab a glue gun and get crafty!
It is June 12th today. I feel it necessary to clarify this because I was dating everything as June 13th until I checked to be sure, like, five minutes ago. I am getting it all wrong with the dates lately. WHAT IS TIME? Please explain. This could be a lengthy conversation, so before we get into it, come look at what we’re wearing today. Sadly, with the exception of Amelia, who is working from home today. WE MISS YOU, AMELIA, IT IS LIKE “LORD OF THE FLIES” AROUND HERE WITHOUT YOU, AND I AM PIGGY.
Praise be the weather gods, because today started out dismally, with more rain forecasted for later in the afternoon, but the sun was like whatever and just came out instead. Perfect, no? It’s about time we start feeling some summertime air around here. Today is a special edition of WWWT because Winona dispatched her outfit from Nashville, and as you well know, Winona makes everything a little more special. Come check out what we’re all wearing today!
I was having kind of a rough day, but then I saw these photos of a orphaned baby wallaby and my internal desire to SQUEE overwhelmed my desire to cry for the third time today! Four-month-old Skye lost her mom and is currently being taken care of by Donna Liversedge, a zookeeper at the New Forest Wildlife Park in the UK, who lets Skye sleep in a tote bag at the end of her bed. The totes is lined with a little bit of Skye’s mom’s fur and Donna is teaching her how to get in and out of it herself. The cuteness is beyond. Guys, I have a lot of empty tote bags that I didn’t know what to do with until now, but clearly I need a baby wallaby.
My home office is so poorly lit that all of my video chats with far-flung friends start off with them saying something along the lines of, “Oh it’s so nice to see…umm…a vague outline of your face!” Obviously I need a new desk lamp. I’ve been scouring thrift stores for cheap options, and let me tell you, there are a hell of a lot of ugly lamp shades in this world. Luckily they don’t have to stay that way. Click through for 10 DIY ways to spruce up a lamp shade!
The 67th Annual Tony Awards were held Sunday night, with the inimitable Neil Patrick Harris hosting. Kinky Boots, the new musical from Cindy Lauper, based on the movie of the same name, took home six awards, and Pippin was named best musical revival. I am not a fan of thespians (So showy! So attention-starved! So jazz handsy!) so the Tony Awards are basically my glitter-glue covered nightmare. Still! The fashions were on point. Above, we take a look at some of the best and worst dramatic thespian fashions.
I was going to start this post about Rihanna by writing, “Stars, they’re just like us! They go to Paris and take tourist-y photos with friends at the Eiffel Tower!” But then it occurred to me that I was not in Paris this weekend, and you probably weren’t either, and more likely you were doing something a little more local, like running errands and catching up on your fave TV shows and maybe, maybe having a cookout with friends. So maybe stars aren’t like us, because jet-setting to Paris for the weekend is a little expensive and we all had to work today, you know? Ugh, sorry, this post turned into kind of a bummer.
