If you thought this fall/winter was gnarly before, get ready for it to get a whole lot worse: This weekend saw the end of Daylight Saving Time, which means we’ll lose another hour of sunlight. For some, that’s no big deal, but for the rest of us, it means we’ll need to hunker down and make a plan.
After the jump, some great winter blues advice, straight from you, dear Frisky readers. Keep reading »
We’ve been hearing about the warnings of formaldehyde in Brazilian Blowout treatments for a few months now, but this New York Times article really caused us to question if we’d ever do the beauty treatment again. Increasingly, salon owners are setting up ventilation rooms or having their employees and customers wear masks to avoid inhaling fumes, which is a pretty good indication that you’re getting exposed to serious chemicals. Further, it’s very vague and ambiguous at the moment as to whether the amount of formaldehyde in Brazilian Blowouts is harmful (you’ll hear several different assertions). It makes us think that if you can’t get an answer, best to just avoid it altogether. One more thing to note: you should also be careful about any other Keratin products or Keratin-related treatments, as these have been found to contain carcinogens as well. Do your research; ask questions; check your labels! [New York Times] Keep reading »

One of the other women who tried on the pair took a spill, and Davis needed assistants to make sure she didn’t fall and crack open her skull. Her conclusion? These boots aren’t easy to walk in, but they sure are show stoppers. [StyleList] Keep reading »
I’ve always been drawn to thick, dark eyebrows. I love the drama and definition they bring to the face, and I get so excited when “bold brows” are declared a trend (this has happened approximately once a year for the past 50 years) and fashion designers start sending models down the runway with giant black smears over their eyes to really drive the point home.
That might be an extreme example, but seriously, strong brows are the best, and here are my top 10 reasons why … [Above: Camilla Belle rocks some awesome arches] Keep reading »
“Hang on—I have been Jake’s onscreen love interest for years, alright. Let’s keep the conversation to me and only me, otherwise I’m gonna get nasty. Don’t get Ella Enchanted pissed off.”
—Anne Hathaway jokingly steps in on Jake Gyllenhaal‘s behalf at the “Love and Other Drugs” press conference when a reporter asks him about what’s going on with Taylor Swift. Sadly, Jake avoided answering the question. Keep reading »
