“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2″ hits theaters in less than two weeks. This awesome lightning bolt necklace is the perfect accessory for a midnight screening, and unlike, say, a floor-length Gryffindor robe, it’s subtle enough to wear to work the day after.

We couldn’t resist posting this vision from Balmain’s Resort 2012 collection, a complex embroidered confection with which we absolutely fell in love. It’s sort of reminiscent of the Aztec calender tonalpohualli, no? Keep reading »
Okay, so Alice + Olivia haven’t designed a new Barbie doll, but the styling of this model in its resort lookbook really reminds me of a classic Barbie. Alice + Olivia has swapped the black and white stripe swimsuit for a black and white stripe romper. The blond hair has been replaced by a big, yellow floppy hat. But both the model and the doll still know the power of great sunglasses and earrings. See the rest of the Alice + Olivia resort collection here. Keep reading »
Most modern women are familiar with that gut-sinking moment when one looks in the mirror and realizes the cold, hard truth: It’s going to be a bad hair day.
Well, for those days when the hair goddesses do not smile upon you kindly, we believe every lady can take her hair look from fright to sight to be seen with minimal effort. In other words, when life gives you less-than-perfect hair, you need to take those strands in your hands and whip them into shape.
To prove that you can rise and shine no matter what you wake up with, we’ve enlisted the help of celebrity stylist Johnny Lavoy, the consulting hair expert from L’Oréal Paris. Lavoy reveals the hair saviors that keep the locks of his A-list clientele (like Lady Gaga and Freida Pinto) looking lovely day after day.

Really, this burger recipe is my take on the Juicy Lucy which is what a burger stuffed with cheese is commonly called. I’ve added a little heat with the inclusion of jalapenos and cayenne into the meat, opted for an English Muffin instead of the usual bun, and topped it off simply with a slice of ripe tomato. So, now it’s the Juicy Lucca, although she wasn’t allowed to have any because it has onions in it. Obviously, you can adjust this recipe so that it’s for as many people as you want, but in true Random Single Gal Recipe style — and considering it’s Independence Day — the following is if you’re just cooking for one. (Also, as I live in an apartment with no outdoor space, it’s also tailored to a stovetop griddle pan.) Happy 4th of July! Keep reading »
It’s officially beach season and I plan to spend hours reading trashy novels and soaking up the sun. But I have no intention of speeding up the wrinkling process. While lounging, I protect my skin with tons of sunblock and my own little patch of shade. This simple straw hat is a must-have for happy, safe, and stylish sunbathing wherever the season may take you.
