10 Reminders From Olde Time-y Suffragettes That You Should Vote!

Once upon a time, women were not legally allowed to vote. Some people believed that there was no need for women to vote, because a wife’s political position should always be the same as her husband’s. Other people thought that if middle-class white women exercised this right the same way as white men, the next thing you know they would be doing crazy stuff like wearing pants and not making dinner. Equality’s a bitch, y’all. The brave women who pushed for the 19th Amendment were called “suffragettes” and they battled some pretty nasty stereotypes. Here’s 10 olde time-y anti-suffragette postcards that show just what these ladies were up against. [Collectors Weekly]

And as if you needed another reminder … GO VOTE!

November 5: What Are We Wearing Today?

We’re back in the office! Finally! A reason to shower and put on makeup! Except I didn’t shower because I am gross. Anyway! Let’s see what we’re wearing today…

Makeup Bag: Beauty When The Lights Go Out

For much of the past week, it’s been tough to even think about beauty, let alone write about it. Hurricane Sandy left much of the tristate area, including my beloved New York City, in a state of disaster and disarray that claimed more lives and homes than I think any of us had pictured when faced with the prospect of this “superstorm.” Those of us who only had to suffer without power, heat, or hot water for a few days were the fortunate ones, that’s for sure. (There are still many, many people in need — here’s how you can help.)

I had a few beauty revelations as a result — namely, it is not the end of the world if I can’t manage to cleanse, tone, treat, and moisturize my face, which is a good thing because it’s pretty much impossible in the dark. If you don’t wash your hair for a while, it looks extra nice when you eventually do, and because you can’t shave, your body hair grows enough to get it waxed when you can finally leave the house! (Or maybe that’s just me, because I’m really Russian and my hair loves to grow.)

But say you’re shacking up with your significant other during this very trying time: there are some things you’re going to want to keep in check. You’re definitely going to want to look, and feel, a little cleaner than I did, and there are plenty of beauty and hygiene products made for ease and convenience that become especially useful. So here it is: beauty (or trying to retain some semblance of it) when the lights go out.

The Miss International Queen Competition Is A Beauty Pageant Unlike Any Other

This past week, a beauty pageant of an entirely different kind took place in Thailand. The Miss International Queen Pageant is a transgender and transsexual beauty pageant where contestants must have been born male in order to participate. Now in its 8th year, the Miss International Queen Pageant aims to increase visibility and acceptance of transgender and transsexual people. Plus, it’s a great excuse to dress up. This year, 21 contestants from 14 countries journeyed to Pattaya, Thailand, to compete. The winner was Kevin Balot from the Philippines, who took home the $10,000 prize and bragging rights.  After the jump, Kevin and some of the other contestants strut their stuff.
