OK, so this has been the year of skin woes for me. First, I accidentally burnt my lips using two common beauty products — teeth whitener and Blistex. After a few weeks, my lips healed for a short time, and then began to peel again. Few products offered any long-term therapeutic relief, and after speaking to my dermatologist, we realized that I had eczema around my lips.
You’re probably wondering, What does this have to do with a Spa Sonic Skin Care System Face & Body Polisher? Allow me to explain.

Helmut Lang’s Spring 2012 was reflective of his signature style: primarily black and neutrals, with sheer overlays and asymmetrical straps and sleeves. In short, we love his looks. His prices, not so much. That’s why we’ve culled together this collection of 9 looks that give you a Helmut Lang-ian style without breaking the bank–including one actual Helmut Lang number.
Throughout my entire life my mother stressed natural beauty. She never let me experiment when it came to hair trends: no dyes –- temporary or permanent, and no unconventional cuts. The worst was every September, while the other girls got their back-to-school highlights, I stuck to the same boring style.
Now in my early twenties, I adhered to my mother’s rules, until I met Aura Friedman.
A petite hairstylist with spunk to spare, Aura is a very in-demand hair colorist who has coiffed many a celebrity. From Lady Gaga to M.I.A., she has even colored entire runway shows including Alexander McQueen. Which brings me to my recent hair makeover. Read more…
You certainly don’t hire writer/director/auteur Harmony Korine to do “normal” stuff. In fact, Korine probably hasn’t been acquainted with “normal” for quite some time. So it’s no surprise that his new short film “Snowballs,” made for Proenza Schouler’s Spring 2012 collection, is pretty batcrackers. While there’s nothing overtly NSFW about it, it is a touch creepy and pervy, with two models playing mute, costumed “trouble twins” who encounter a rather disturbing old man character with “magic” fingers. It’ll probably make you feel icky inside.
I’m about three months late on getting my hair cut. My bangs are cowlick-ing funny, the ends are kind of fried, and the shape could best be described as “poofy.” Even though I always love what my hairstylist Jay — hey, girl! — does to it, I kind of dread getting even just a trim. Why? Because while I’m stoked on what I see when I’m sitting in the chair, blown out to a glossy high shine, there’s that terrible period afterwards at home, when I struggle to recreate the perfection on my own. This doodle is sadly true, for me at least, but luckily it’s temporary. I always come around to loving a haircut, whether it’s subtle or drastic. How about you? Do you usually hate your hair post-cut?
I think I speak for everyone when I say TGIFF! That’s “Thank God It’s F**king Friday,” if you were wondering about the extra F. (If I ever put an extra F in an acronym, you can safely assume it’s for f**k.) Anyway, let’s see what we’re wearing headed into the weekend!
