Beauty Rewards Program Gives You A Reason To Shop At CVS

CVS has expanded its ExtraCare program to include beauty rewards, giving you a reason to shop there. (I say “a reason” because no matter where the CVS is or the time of day, I’ve always had to wait in an epic line to checkout.) Participants will get a 10 percent coupon for registering, a $5 ExtraBucks for every $50 spent, and a $3 ExtraBucks for their birthday. But coupons aren’t the only incentives for signing up for the beauty rewards program. You’ll also receive beauty tips, discounts for online shipping, invitations to exclusive in-store beauty events, access to products before they launch, and personalized beauty offers. The benefits are similar to the ones Sephora’s Beauty Insider program offers, but the prices of the products are cheaper. You can sign up here. [Fashionista] Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Season Of The Witch,” “The Absent,” “Phil Ochs: There But Of Fortune”

It’s a whole new year in the movie theater and I wish I could say that we’re starting it off with a bang, but unfortunately the biggest movie hitting the screens this week is “Season of the Witch.” Fortunately for you, there are some great looking indie flicks and a bunch of super awesome movies from the holiday season that are still out! Whatever, it’s not like you need an excuse for sitting on your butt and eating popcorn. Keep reading »

Do Uggs Cause Foot Fungus?

Fungi like to breed in dark, wet places, and Uggs provide the perfect conditions, says Dr. Olivier Zong, a podiatrist and director of surgery at NYC Footcare. But not all podiatrists agree with Dr. Zong. Dr. Howard Shapiro, a DPM with Manhattan Podiatry, says any shoe or sock can provide a dark, damp environment, not only shearling-lined Uggs. “Uggs have a wool lining so if anything I would think that they would absorb the sweat [that leads to foot fungus],” said Dr. Shapiro to Fashionista. “Foot fungus affects about 40 percent of the population,” he added. “Prior to Uggs it was still affecting 40 percent of the population.”

I’ve found that wearing nylon trouser socks feels more comfortable in my shearling-lined boots than cotton ones, which don’t wick moisture away from the feet. As a result, my feet don’t sweat as much. But there are other precautions you can take to prevent foot fungus, like using an antiperspirant, changing socks and shoes daily, and protecting cracking and peeling skin with an anti-fungal topical medication.

Suri Cruise Is Nobody’s Fashion Darling

“The other day we came out of a store, and she said, ‘I want to go there,’ pointing at another store quite a distance away. In that store was the dress that she wanted. I said, ‘Wow, Suri. You’re something. You picked that out from a football field away.’”

Your Daily Ryan Gosling Report: The Gos Rocks A Onesie On “Ellen”


“Ellen” doesn’t air in New York until 4 p.m., i.e. right now (DVR alert!!!), but this clip of Ryan Gosling on today’s episode has already made it online. For starters, I would go to the gym every day if there was even a .000001 percent chance of seeing Ryan Gosling on an exercise bike. And then he wears a onesie? And he gives onesies to the audience? I know this is going to come as a huge shock to all of you, but I seriously want to marry him. I want to be his hausfrau and hand wash his onesie every day for the rest of my life, while he whispers sweet nothings in my ear in that sort of strange accent he’s using. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »

What Trend Did You Discover?

When I was in college, I started doing this innovative thing with my clothes: I wore dresses over jeans. It was not cool. It was so not cool that one of my coworkers at the college paper wrote in my bio, “Julie started the dresses over jeans trend–AND WE WISH SHE WOULD STOP.” But then! Lo, some three years later, EVERYBODY was wearing dresses over jeans. Marc Jacobs was putting dresses over jeans down the frigging runway. We now have an entire confusing category of clothing–the dress/shirt or shirt/dress–created from this trend. I feel vindicated: I was ahead of the curve on the dress/jeans combo. Maybe I even invented it (probably not).

Have you ever been on the cutting edge of discovering a new fashion phenom or pervasive trend? Keep reading »
