Quotable: Lo Bosworth Doesn’t Want Anyone Thinking Heidi Montag Is Normal

“I hope that girls don’t read the article, look at the decisions that Heidi made, and think that’s normal. She was quoted as saying that [practically] every celebrity in Hollywood has these procedures done, every day … And that’s just not true. I would never want young girls to read that and think it’s the standard that they need to be measured by … I just hope that the girls who look up to us and watch us don’t look at what Heidi did as the only way to be successful and beautiful.”

7 Things To Remember Before A First Date

A friend of mine has been dabbling in online dating, or, as he put it, “swimming in vag.” The availability of women combined with his usual tech guy internet habit has blown his, uh, mind, thus far. Although there are certainly enough ladies to go around, that didn’t stop this dapper dude from getting nervous and going a little overboard in his prep for a first date. The instrument of destruction: clippers.

Before picking her up, he wanted to trim the hedges. Unfortunately, he used the wrong side buzzer. Fortunately (?), he started out with his arm hair. Basically, my metro friend mowed a row down. And you know, he didn’t want to have a “fade” on his arm, so he had to do the whole dang thing, including the other appendage. On the date, he opted to ignore the (hairless) elephant in the room and didn’t mention his noticeably bald arms to his companion, making sure to keep his sleeves down all night.

But his story moved me, since I myself had a Tweezer-meets-eyebrow accident while primping for a date once. (Luckily, he was into the chola look.) My hairless buddy wanted to share this story to help the other men out there — hopefully his story will inspire you to forgo the buzzer — and these other no-nos before you go on a hot date. Whatever your getting-ready ritual is, you best heed these, because no amount of candlelight will save you! Keep reading »

Liveblogging “The Bachelor” January 18th 2010

Tonight’s liveblog is going to be a little different, in that it won’t exactly be live. See, I’m having dinner at my mom’s and probably won’t make it home until, oh, 9 pm. I’ll start watching as soon as I get home and will probably be all caught up by the end, thanks to the magic of DVR. Y’all should still use the comments to discuss the show when it starts at 8 pm EST, and I’ll join you eventually! Keep reading »

Remote Control: What You’ll Want To Watch The Week of January 18th 2010

I won’t lie to you guys. I have totally been watching the “Golden Girls” marathon on the Hallmark channel all day, and it has been awesome. But even if you missed it, there’s still lots of great television coming at you this week, from the season premieres of “The Millionaire Matchmaker” and “Being Erica” to the start of new shows like “Life Unexpected” and “Paranormal Cops” that have a lot of promise.

Mo’Nique’s A Winner, With Or Without A Razor

Mo’Nique took home a much-deserved statue at the Golden Globe Awards last night, for her performance in “Precious,” and she looked fabulous doing it. However, she did seem to forget one thing — giving her legs a good shave. However, she’s been known to skip the grooming ritual before, why would GG night be any different?

Beauty Test Drive: L’Occitane Shea Butter Lip Balm

Few things make you feel more like a jerk than spending $10 on lip balm. As a recent and complete convert to that very practice, I speak from experience. But while forking over the cash for an item that I could more or less buy for $2 at CVS does require some resolve, my lips are thanking me for it. L’Occitane’s She Butter Lip Balm is all natural, smells amazing and lasts much longer than the drugstore brand without requiring reapplication. Though Burt’s Bees is a definite second place performance-wise (and costs only $3), L’Occitane’s balm is actually worth the extra $7 investment, especially if your lips gets really dry in the winter.

Gap And SF MoMA Tap Ed Ruscha, Other Artists For T-Shirt Collab

We’re loving us some artsy fartsy style today. The SF branch of MoMA has just released a series of artist-designed t-shirts in collaboration with the Gap to celebrate the museum’s 75th anniversary. The goods feature the work of some of our favorite artists like photographer Ed Rushcha, who made a color block address-book image, and Chris Johanson, who illustrated a museum-going family. Other participants include Simon Evans, Barry McGee, and Kerry James Marshall. The best part? They’re all under $25, so you can own a little piece of wearable art without breaking the bank. (Or pulling a Thomas Crown.) [SF MoMA Store via W Magazine Blog] Keep reading »

5 Ways To Make Your Skin Glow Right Now

Nars Orgasm Illuminator, $29, Sephora
I don’t know about you guys, but between all the dry, recycled air inside and freezing wind out on the street, my complexion is looking more than a little–how do you say?–”meh.” Sure, I could sit here and talk about eating more salmon and Omega-3s or practicing Bikram twice a day, but why bother with all the effort when there are beauty products that will create a dewy faux glow in a flash? For example, Nars just sent me this new illuminating product, and I’m obsessed with it. For one, the Orgasm blush they’ve been making for years is universally salivated over by makeup artists, celebrities and beauty editors alike, so it’s got that going for it. But now it comes in this subtly shimmery peach-hued, ultra-silky liquid form that you can spread on as a primer or use as a highlighter and it seriously makes you look like you’re glowing from within. After the jump, a few more standbys to get the job done and fast.
