Buy Gold From A Vending Machine

I don’t usually have luck with vending machines because I’m a rather picky person, but if I were in Germany, I know there are 500 machines that would have me happy to make a purchase. TG-Gold-Super-Markt, a German company, has plans to install vending machines that sell gold as if it were chocolate bars. The machines will be in airports and train stations. The company hopes to capitalize on the increased interest in gold investments since people are wary of investing in other commodities. The machine prices will be 30 cents higher than the market value and will be updated every few minutes. TG-Gold-Super-Mark owner Thomas Geissler said, “German investors have always preferred to hold a lot of personal wealth in gold, for historical reasons. They have twice lost everything. Gold is a good thing to have in your pocket in uncertain times.” [Impact Lab] Keep reading »

Gallery: Celebs Go To Washington

I love it when celebs take to Capitol Hill to defend their various charities, organizations and causes. Sure, it’s nice to see them use their celebrity for good causes, but I especially love to check out their forced-looking uber-conservative get-ups! It’s the one venue where Hollywood tones down the cleave and the curves and goes light on the makeup—sometimes rendering stars totally unrecognizable! Just this week Nick Jonas made a pit stop to testify in front of the Senate on behalf of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (he was diagnosed with diabetes in 2005), and gotta say, his slim-lapeled, light grey flannel suit was snazy. It’s not always easy to make conservative look fashionable, as some of the next few celebs will prove…

Grown Up Things For The Little Ones

When I was a wee little girl, my best friend had a spa party where they did our make up, cut our hair, dolled us up… basically so we could all go home and take naps. Of course, spa parties still exist, but they’ve gotten way cooler. As Mom Logic pointed out, one 6-year-old’s spa party is calling for the “beauty treatment of your choice: a manicure, a pedicure, a classy ‘up-do,’ or a free ear piercing.” While some mothers are totally disgusted by the ear-piercing thing, I’d RSVP yes in a second!

I do agree that 6 years old can be a bit early to get your ears pierced, which made me wonder, what other things can kids have these days that are a bit too grown up for their age?

Thinking Of Making A Career Change?

Head to the make-up counter. The Wall Street Journal is reporting on one woman’s against the tide career change: As a teacher at a Montessori School (aka a fancy, alternative education-based school) in an Los Angeles suburb, Desiree Tordecilla, wasn’t exactly bringing home the bacon. When her husband decided to quit his job and go get his MBA, she needed to really get hustling on the income front (not to mention the health insurance situation, the family was without any form of medical backup). So when a cousin, who managed their local Nordstom Chanel makeup counter, mentioned there was an opening at the Dior counter across the aisle, Desiree applied. She interviewed and was hired not long after. Four years later she jumped to MAC and became an account manager which had her managing all the retail managers. Quite the steady climb—and all this while still teaching. Finally, long story short, she landed at Stila and has since become the vice president of global sales, artistry and international marketing. Oh and the MBA-seeking husband who left the family in a lurch? Long gone. She’s happily going it alone.

Next time you’re sprinting through the gauntlet of fragrance spritzers in your local department store, give the ladies a second thought. Just saying. [WSJ] Keep reading »

Kim, Didn’t You Say You Were Okay With Your Cellulite?

It was kind of refreshing when Kim Kardashian posed for Life & Style and the photos weren’t airbrushed, following her Complex photoshopping scandal. In her L&S interview, Kim was all, “I have cellulite, so what!” and “I love my body the way it is.” This makes her just-announced project a bit hypocritical. According to a press release from Nivea, Kim is partaking in Nivea’s “Good-bye Cellulite, Hello Bikini Challenge,” a four-week holistic program that includes using Nivea’s Good-bye Cellulite Gel-Cream and Patches to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Kim, we thought you had accepted your cellulite. What gives? [Nivea] Keep reading »

Being A Human Rubik’s Cube Has Never Looked So Good

“Boxy” isn’t a word often associated with looking good. It’s more the sort of thing my mom calls me on a chubby day or that one time I wore an oversized blazer and came out looking sort of like a cross between a school marm and a stripper about to get the show going. Anyway, I screwed the pooch on that one but recent Royal Academy of Fine Arts grad Irina Shaposhnikova got boxy right like you wouldn’t believe in her graduation fashion show.
